  • 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 property and exceptional hospitality

    "What an incredible month. Everything about our stay at Villa Pochote exceeded our expectations. The Villa itself has been built beautifully (by Trey himself) - clean, spacious, bright with outstanding views from both floors. Great swimming pool, barbecue area and a lovely yoga studio free to use at your leisure with a great teacher who comes every Wednesday at sunset and teaches a class. If you want wildlife you're in the right place too - Iguanas, Howler monkeys, Whiteface monkeys, red squirrels, Coatis, an abundance of birds, the garden is teeming with life and when you sit an wait, it all comes to you. You can walk the the closest beach (Playa Manzanillo) in around 10 minutes but to get anywhere else you'll need a 4x4 or a quad/buggy as the roads are tough work otherwise. And you will definitely want to go everywhere else. So get one. The next beach along is Hermosa where I spent most of my time, great for surfing, beautiful sand, and with a guy who sells coconuts and delicious ceviche out of the back of his van for when you get hungry or thirsty. From there you're on the road to Santa Teresa, a bustling little surf town packed full to the brim with good vibes. There are a number of great bars and restaurants, plenty of surf stores and a few small supermarkets to pick up supplies. All along Santa Teresa are more pristine beaches, usually busy with local and travelling surfers. Further out from Santa Teresa you'll find plenty of nature reserves, other little towns and an abundance of staggering waterfalls (some easier to find than others). The best bit, however, is Trey and Jaclyn. Their hospitality knows no bounds. They gave us lifts to town, surf lessons, the best advice on where to go, they lent me snorkelling gear, Trey flexed his superlative BBQ skills when we all had a cookout, they booked us taxis, Jaclyn took me to the rodeo in Cobano, Trey even took time out of his day taking me around properties that were for sale when I expressed interest. The list very much goes on. Overall we count ourselves lucky to have found such a breathtaking place. If the rest of Costa Rica is as wonderful as the tiny slice we saw then what a country it is. As an unexpected bonus we have also made great friends along the way. We will surely be back. Pura Vida"

  • 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!!"

  • Heaven on Earth

    "The word paradise only touches on describing this magical place. This breezy house of mahogany, awash with the scent of tropical flowers, this is the stuff dreams are made of. The abundant sunshine, the private beach just steps away, the chatter of wild parakeets that wake you in the morning, the breathtaking sunsets to wish you a goodnight, the magnificent tropical storms, the overwhelming sense of peace. All this and so much more make this place a true heaven on earth. I stayed for two weeks with my 6 year old son. It was an enchanted journey that we’ll never forget. Alex and Mary were the most gracious of hosts who went over and above to make our stay unforgettable. I can’t recommend this beautiful beach house (or these people) more. This was not a vacation for us but rather a new family tradition!"
