  • Casa Antigua

    "Casa Antigua had all the amenities of home. The pool was great with plenty of seating, great views of the ocean and amazing sunsets! Clinton was attentive, kind, informative and great to work with. We hired Chef Rambo one of the evenings for dinner...the most amazing meal we had all week, definitely a must!"

  • An exceptional property with an incredible view.

    "Oh my. Where to begin? What an absolute pleasure it was to spend 9 glorious days in La Joyita! The House: Incredibly beautiful. High vaulted ceilings throughout. Big picture windows and doors that allowed the ocean breezes to flow through. The house was spotless and obviously well take care of. It is equipped with every amenity one could dream of. The kitchen has every small appliance you could wish for (and then some!). The living room and bedroom both have TVs complete with the Roku system, which allowed us to curl up and watch Netflix movies on the quieter nights. The Amazon Home system was a treat (I totally want one now), allowing us to stream our music via Bluetooth through the speakers. Books and reference guides paired with binoculars are a dream for any bird watchers. The bedroom has a good mattress for sleeping and bench for those who want to chill with a book. The bathroom is beautiful, complete with hot shower and good water pressure. Everything was just pristine. The Property: Well maintained, beautiful landscaping and a wicked view. The pool is a great option for cooling off on those hot hot days. I travel to the area at least twice a year and the view from La Joyita are for those who enjoy sweeping canopy and ocean views. The photos do it no justice. And the sunsets every night are nothing short of spectacular!!!! Tons of birds, including toucans and hummingbirds can be seen throughout the day. The grumbles and howls of Howler Monkeys were heard several times daily (and nightly) and bullfrogs, bats and fireflies filled the evenings & nights. You definitely need a 4x4 to get to the house as the final climb to it is pretty steep and the whole road up is unpaved (like all side roads there). The property manager Adam (who lives down the road) was exceptional. He made sure we were well taken care of and made recommendations and reservations for us. We also fell in love with his pup Oso who would come visit us almost daily. RECOS: For Dinner: Exotica, Sabor Espanol, Ranchos Remos. For Lunch: Roadshack, La Fogata, PorQueNo The sunset horseback riding tour at Rancho Le Merced is amazing. Surf lessons down in Playa Dominical are huge amounts of fun. I would 100% recommend La Joyita to any couple (or solo) traveling to the area. What a remarkable time we had in this fantastic house and I am so grateful that Gary shared it with us."

  • Amazing house in mountains!

    "We had the opportunity to stay at this gorgeous house for 8 nights. The pictures don't do it justice. It was very clean, private and very well equipped. Loved using the outside shower. It is decorated very tastefully. There are tile floors throughout the house. The way the living room and dining area open up to the pool and patio gives it a very open feel. We got up every morning to a beautiful view of the ocean, and toucans in the trees right on the property! We did a lot of fun things on this trip but made an effort to get back to the house for the sunset, because it is really something not to be missed, just an incredible view. The beds were so comfortable, and each bedroom has its own very quiet AC unit with remote control. Also there are ceiling fans throughout the house to keep it nice and airy. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to prepare a meal except the food which is available a short 10-15 minute drive away. It was so peaceful and relaxing, we never wanted to leave. It is located about 45 minutes from Quepos where Marina Pez Vela is located. We went offshore fishing from there and had a fantastic day catching 7 sailfish. The Nauyaca waterfalls entrance is within a 30 minute drive. We took the horseback riding tour to the falls.......AWESOME! We drove to Uvita and went on the snorkeling tour, that was really fun. There are ziplines, beaches, bars, restaurants, canopy tours, hiking, etc. all within a short distance. So go have some fun, but hurry back to this fabulous get-away home in the mountains to relax and watch that sunset. Yamil Melias is the house manager and is very responsive to your needs. He arranged a private shuttle for our group from San Jose airport and back again for a reasonable charge. He also arranged a rental vehicle to be at the house when we arrived. I recommend something AWD because hey this house is in the mountains. It was really cool to be able to drive around and explore. The people of Costa Rica were very friendly, and we felt very safe. It is also a very clean country. Need something while you are there? Call Yamil, he will take care of you. We had such a great vacation at this home, and we hope to be able to go back again. Pura Vida!!!"
