  • Unique Place in a Nice Area

    "Our family enjoyed 4 nights here, the house is unique and the views are really great. You get to see the lush vegetation and mountains of the Ballena Coast from almost anywhere on the property, not to mention the ocean view. We didn't get to see the most spectacular sunsets because of weather conditions, but we enjoyed every evening by the pool and the twilight was still awesome. Insects were not a problem and the house was fresh and cool at night without the need for A/C, there were plenty of ceiling fans and other fans when there wasn't any breeze. The house is exactly as shown in the pictures, it has lovely wood accents and a unique character. The kitchen was fully equipped with a full sized refrigerator and gas stove. The access roads to the property were in good condition, they are gravel but seem to be well maintained by the community. It is green season, but not the heaviest rainy period, so conditions may vary at other times of the year. The house is surrounded by other luxury properties and the area seemed really safe to us. We visited the Whale's Tale in Uvita and did a whale & dolphin snorkelling tour our first day, the second day we visited the Ventanas and Piñuelas beaches and the third day we went to the world famous Naucaya waterfall, which was definitely one of the highlight attractions in Costa Rica. You won't regret visiting this area and this house is a very good selection."

  • Pura Vida!

    "We had a wonderful stay at La Paloma Blanca. This was our first trip to Costa Rica, along with our three grown daughters. This property was clean, had plenty of room, and the view can't be beat! We did not rent a car. Dan Jenkins provided transportation to/from the airport. We relied on taxis while staying at the condo. Taxis are very inexpensive and easy to find. The guard at the property would call for a taxi, and it would arrive within five minutes. We never had a problem, even with 5 of us. Security is always visible on the the property- very safe location. And, yes the beach is just a step off the property!!"

  • One of the best Vactions ever

    "My family of 8 visited Costa Rica in July 2016 and stayed at Casa Marbella. It is a beautiful, spacious house and well-appointed. The beds were great and I slept like a baby. Plenty of restrooms for my wife and three daughters. There are two masters with huge bathrooms. Our large family never felt cramped. Overall a great house to spend your vacation. I was anticipating the house being located more in the jungle but it is actually in a subdivision and you had to go through 2 guard gates. Although the backyard does have some trees and vegetation it was not as dense as I thought it would be. We did see the fruit bats that camped each day on the front porch awning. Also saw a tarantula. Neither the bats nor the tarantula paid us any attention and I thought it was actually a cool experience. Didn't see any monkeys at the house. The pool was a lot of fun but we only used it 3 or 4 times and never for any length of time. It is a bit narrower than the pictures looked to me. But we spent a lot of time at Playa Avellana and the Beach Club. Playa Avellana is so sandy and soft. The Beach Club beach is a bit rocky and I stumped my toes a few times under water. The Beach Club and Playa Avellana are about a five minute walk from each other. The water temperature is enjoyable and when I had enough of the ocean, I never really got too hot sitting on the beach either. Maybe that explains why we were at the beach for almost 10 hours one day. We loved the beaches. Sunsets are beautiful. I recommend eating at Lola's at Playa Avellana also. Sooo good. We ate at home most nights and the kitchen was more than adequate. Food prices are bit expensive, more than the US I thought. But it is a tourist area. The golf cart came in handy when going to the JW Marriott and the Beach Club. I'm also a runner so running inside the property was no problem and I found some cool routes. All in all, this house is great. A cell phone was provided which was a nice touch. Cyn, the property manager, was great and booked a lot of excursions for us and plugged the routes into the phone so we wouldn't get lost. I highly recommend Pura Aventura for ziplines. We also went scuba diving at Catalina Island and saw 3 bull sharks and a group of manta rays. What a great thrill. We used Aqua Rica and Billy was great to dive with but they did have to reschedule us. Small inconvenience. But if you visit Costa Rica, be aware the roads are really bad. Recommend a SUV is you rent a car."

  • Best Choice For Tamarindo

    "We stayed a week in April and thoroughly enjoyed the Langosta Beach Club. It's just far enough out of town to be quiet, but close enough that you can easily walk downtown in 10 minutes. Tamarindo has a busy nightlife, so not being in the middle of it was great for us. The condos are clean,spacious, modern, have a well-equipped kitchen and air conditioning. Across the street is the Langosta Beach Club which is included in the cost of your condo. It has a beautiful pool, bar, and restaurant, and, then the beach with chairs and full bar and restaurant service. I can't recommend this place highly enough."
