MY FAVORITE VACATION (OF MANY!) BECAUSE OF VILLA VISTA REAL!!!
"We booked Villa Vista Real for a one week vacation with friends! The entire group was made up of 5 couples & 10 children ages 1-12 years old and this house was perfect for our group!
Saying that our week at Villa Vista Real exceeded our expectations would be an understatement!
The first thing I must mention is how helpful the owner of the property was in coordinating everything for us! From questions about the weather, to asking about excursions we could do, and arranging everything we wanted with his property manager! The owner is incredibly easy to work with and helpful with every question we had!
The next person I must mention is Soraya the property manager! She gathered all of the groceries we requested before we arrived and came nearly everyday to help with any additional requests that we had! Soraya organized a trip to the beach for our group, as well as an outing to go ziplining! She arranged the cars, and anything our group wanted. There was 1 incident where 1 car was late to come pick us up, and Soraya quickly called and had another driver at the house within 5 minutes! She is amazing!
The third person who far exceeded our expectations was Chef Jade. Before arriving we had hired a chef to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner for each day of our vacation. This freed everyone up to just enjoy the stay, without worrying about such a large group going out. Chef Jade's cooking was amazing and every lunch and dinner was always something different and delicious!
And then there was the house!!! It is the perfect home for a group to have fun and relax! It features an open concept living/dining/kitchen with gorgeous views from every room! Each bedroom has an attached full bathroom and a breathtaking view of the ocean! The chef stayed in the guest house which does not have a view, but it allowed her to get up before us & get breakfast ready by the time we woke up.
The house has a sound system that syncs with your iphone/ipad, so we had a soundtrack of great music playing everyday, and spent most of our mornings and afternoons in and around the infinity pool. There is also a deck with seating built into the side of the mountain where we had hours of great conversation! The mountain makes for invigorating early morning walks and we enjoyed the sunset each night from the pool!
It has been 1 month since the trip & we are still texting about all the memories that were made at Villa Vista Real! This house has made this our best trip yet!"

"The house was bigger than expected and incredibly clean. Fully equipped kitchen allowed us to cook when we wanted. It was also great to have a cleaning service to come daily. The house is on a beautiful property situated away from the street. Francesca and the rest of the staff were so gracious and helpful.
We have 2 kids and they loved hanging out at the pool. My husband was happy that we were a short 5 minute drive from the good waves for surfing and many great restaurants. But on evenings we were too beat, the resort on the grounds has a nice, quiet restaurant with delicious food and wine.
We wholeheartedly recommend this house and will be returning in the future."

"What a wonderful experience we had. Mikey arranged a driver to pick us up at the airport and take us to this very private property. Where we were met with choices of car rentals. The home is nestled in the jungle overlooking the pacific. We even had monkeys in the trees nearby. It is a short drive into town and to beachside restaurants. Sheryl, the property manager, was very responsive. When we accidentally broke a hose outlet on a Sunday morning, she promptly had it repaired in a few hours. The house was spotless and in good repair.
Thanks for a a great visit.

"It was a big contrast to the snowy and cold Austrian mountains. So we enjoyed the warm climate and during this time of the year "mosquito free" surounding very much. We were a group of 6 and enjoyed ourselfs in an amazing location with a stunning pool, a well equipped kitchen, tasteful decorated sleeping rooms and breauthtaking sunsets. Several local options for activities like surfing, horse riding, canopy, visiting waterfalls etc. gives boredom no chance.
Daniel (Owner) as well as his employees were very pleasant and helpful in all different aspects. We really enjoyed our stay and strongly recommend this location - it was great.
P.S. Due to several unpaved partly adventurous roads in this region of Costa Rica I would recommend a four wheel driven SUV."
