  • Paradise Getaway

    "My wife and I wanted to get away from New York for a week and this house was the perfect getaway. It was secluded from the bustle of the main road so the privacy and quiet on the hill was perfect. The house and a huge kitchen (fridge/cutlery/etc) that we could cook in when we wanted to stay in, yet was a short drive to the restaurants we wanted to go to when we felt like dining out. Belen (property manager) was extremely helpful with suggestions of where to go and even gave us a guide before we arrived. About the house? Where to start - the best view you could ever ask for. Perfect infinity pool, lounge chairs to read and drink and actually get away from it all. My wife and I did our own yoga sessions on the deck built (I believe) specifically for it, and there was mats already available which was convenient as we had forgotten ours. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, and there was an awesome living room/common space we used to play cards and lounge when we were tired from surfing. One of the main things we wanted to do was go zip lining and Belen let us know (she emailed quickly by email) that there was a place just down the road and let us know how to get there. The house was perfectly hidden away from the main tourist hub for seclusion, privacy, and a sense of quiet we wanted, yet close enough to all the things we wanted from a Costa Rica trip. We ended up eating at quite a few hotels as they had recommendations of good food/views etc, but the honestly staying at Villa Sunset Hill ended up being the best view and accommodations we saw the entire week. Would highly recommend to both couples and larger groups/family retreats. Thanks again for a great week for my wife's birthday vacation. Pure vida!"

  • Beautiful Home, Lovely View

    "This is beautiful home with a lovely view and lovely landscaping. Waking to the sounds of the jungle was amazing and we had monkeys in our trees which thrilled us! The top terrace is a wonderful place to relax. The location is nice if you want to avoid the business of the coast but it is about a 30 minute drive to Santa Teresa and while there are two restaurants nearby, the best places to eat are in Santa Teresa in our opinion. The description and reviews mention the friendly gardener, housekeeper and laundry service but it seems as if they were let go before our arrival. There was a new caretaker, who was a bit of a curmudgeon (but he did prepare us a nice dessert one afternoon), and said the laundry machine would ruin our clothes; once we discovered the laundry machines were actually in a locked room in the house, we were able to do our own laundry. Also beware that the house has no AC and while most of the time the house is pleasant especially if it rains in the evening, on evenings that it did not rain, the bedrooms were a bit warm, stagnant and with the windows open, bugs (and a bat) did come in the room at night making us feel a little uncomfortable. Also some of the things that make this house special and add luxury were not up to par (because of a lack of rain?) such as the infinity pool which was still useable and nice but not filled to infinity level, fountains which were not running and the shower in the master bath which did not work. Seems to us like this home is a bit of a fading beauty. Bill responded promptly with emails but we never met him."

  • WOW - Amazing and Breathtaking Indeed!!

    "We have stayed in VRBOs and Airbnbs all over the world and by far this property was perhaps the best and exceeded all expectations. While nothing is 'perfect', Casa Luz de Luna was as near perfect as could be with the amazing view, infinity pool, outdoor setting, clean accommodations, private bedroom and bath, etc. Soraya and Carla were beyond gracious and helpful. Everything stated in the listening is accurate and then some - this is truly a special place and we cannot recommend it enough!! Thank you for making our stay at your wonderful place the highlight of our Costa Rican getaway!!"

  • An experience of a lifetime!!

    "I stayed at the property Casa Yin Yang with my family and we brought a friend long wanting to visit Costa Rica for a surf trip and it was absolutely beautiful! The house was unbelieveable, more than we expected. It was so private and right on the beautiful beach.A true Costa Rican home with all the upgrades. The outdoor living space was the best and we spent most of our time outside. The pool was great, the rooms were large and the craftsmanship of the home was just beautiful, the pics didn't do the home justice. Marta (the concierge) was there for our every need.The boys only surfed a bit because the week we went there was a pretty big swell but we did alot of other things such a renting quads to visit all around town and anywhere else we could go (and did) ,ziplining, hiking, and sight seeing. We had a blast and I don't think there is a better place to stay than this property. There are very few in this location that we found that are even in this league and HIGHLY recommend it. Thanks Stefan, Marta, our cleaning girls and the rest of the great staff that watched out for us! There is great security here and they do keep an eye out for you."
