  • geeat visit (although different from what we were expecting)

    "We booked casa wasabi the day before we arrived so it was very last minute. We missed in the ad description that it wasn't a private house - it is better described as apartments. The pool is shared with two other rental units. That being said it is a very comfortable, spacious 3 bedroom apartment with a well equipped kitchen and a fabulous location super close to the beach. William is an excellent host. Although it wasn't exactly what we were initially expecting we had a great stay and would definitely return."

  • Love love love this cute adorable Casita!

    "At the end of the road surrounded by jungle is private one bedroom Gato Cansado. The location is priceless. Walking distance to the beach, waking up to the local troop of howler monkeys and the sing song of the birds is a joy beyond words. Loved the casita that keeps you drawn outside to the jungle rain or shine."

  • Perfect in every way!

    "Just got back from a week at La Choza and this house was absolutely perfect!! We have 5 kids and this was the best vacation we've ever had. The owner of the house, Raini, was fantastic. She was in touch with my wife via email countless times and gave us advice regarding directions, places to go, even restaurants. She really went the extra mile to make sure we had a great vacation. The house is simply deluxe and has everything you could possibly need. The pool is amazing. The layout is ideal for families and the huge deck overlooking Playa Negra is spectacular. There is only a short walk to one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica. Fatima the house keeper was also great as was her husband Jose who looks after the pool and the yard. You can really tell that the owners have thought of everything when constructing this incredible property. I can't imagine a better place to stay!!"

  • What a great place to stay in Costa Rica

    "We just spent a long holiday week-end with family at Villa Encantada with a number of family members. It was as beautiful and comfortable as advertised, if not more so. The owner, Glenn, was great to work with. He provided a wealth of information about activities in the area and helped us select a zipline tour that did a great job accommodating a seven-year old member of our party. Since our party was too big to all stay at the Villa, he arranged an additional house a few minutes away to take the overflow. He met us on our arrival and showed us around the property, providing a map of the trails, and checked on us regularly during our stay. We really enjoyed the well laid out trails throughout the property. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and well maintained and the views of the lake and rainforest are spectacular. We had six kids aged seven and under who would have spent the entire stay making the circuit up and down the water slide if the adults had the stamina to stay with them. (OK, the adults had their share of fun on the slide as well, especially when they could splash an unsuspecting onlooker.) Another popular activity was fishing in the pond located on the property, especially from the island in the middle. We hiked down to Lake Arenal, but didn’t fish there – that will have to wait on a future trip. The house itself is beautiful and comfortable with lots of nice touches. It is well stocked with towels (including for the pool), pots, pans, dishes, basic spices, etc. – far better than we have experienced in other rentals. Nuevo Arenal (sometimes just called Arenal) is only three or four miles away and has a grocery, meat vendor and bakery, as well as a pharmacy and we shopped and cooked most dinners at the Villa. There are a number of good restaurants in the area, and we had lunch at several, but we preferred not to drive at night. But watch your fuel level – the “gasolineria” in town was closed while we were there and is reputed to be expensive when open. The closest we found was Tilaran (about 15 miles) or La Fortuna (about 30 miles), but there are a lot of activities in and around La Fortuna, so you may be going there anyway. Remember that you are in a rainforest and I read somewhere that it typically rains at some point during 22 or 23 days in September, the month we were there, and it rained three of four days we were there, but only one day for a long period and you can find activities nearby that are rain-free since the climate changes wi"
