  • Pura Vida Costa Rica at the Casa!

    "A busy family of five, looking to disconnect... and that is what we got! If your sick of fighting for a chair at a pool in a resort, or standing in line to eat dinner on a cruise-try this! This beautiful home was secluded, wildlife everywhere, great pool, balconies, comfy beds-and air conditioned bedrooms! (yes 1 is a garage converted-not a big deal) We live at the beach in the US, so we were looking for a mountain get-away, and Casa De la Montana gave us just that. Unlike the last review-we feel your in Costa Rica-so learn the language! Google translate worked just fine. No Oscar, really doesn't speak English, but translate worked for us. He was a wonderful, considerate man! Took us horseback riding, and kids on the quad. He has great tips-ask him! Magally (who walks 30 min. to work-give her a ride if you can) was wonderful. We wanted a vacation, so we asked her to cook on the days she was there-and she did, ask her for the Yuca stuffed with Bisteca! Esteban (he is also on the contact list) is an amazing chef. We hired him for the weekend, we asked for authentic CR food-and he did! He's a great guy, fun to hang with, and a great chef! We don't recommend renting a car. Just use the one at the casa. Fernan-incredible-worth every penny! He picked us up from the airport, took us food shopping, stopped to see the crocs, stopped for us to eat, and found the house at night-which wouldn't have been too easy! Brought us back to airport, stopped for souvenirs, and we were on time! He is a great guy, highly recommend his services! The people on the mountain were lovely... Steven & Saulio at Sky Mountain-the best! We've been zip lining, this was by far- best we've done-scary, high, incredible views! Tres Pilas-go to the falls. Bit of hike, but heah... you want the jungle-you hike. We saw monkeys, and had a blast. Jump in the middle pool, and stay to the left when you arrive, there is a trail up the side of the falls. We surf-go to Hermosa or Esterillos Oesta- find Jorge to rent boards from, he's just as you get to the beach on the right. Snorkled off a catamaran-Ocean King. Great service, nice boat. The road through town and up the mountain isn't the best-yes. But remember where you are. This is an experience like none other- enjoy it, take in the views, play your music, relax, swim, toucans & monkeys on the property... It's the best! Our kids 13,11,9 loved the wifi, lol! We will be back Claudia & Randy!"

  • Awesome Stay At Casa Bella Vista

    "What a wonderful stay we had in Manual Antonia while calling Casa Bella Vista our home! Chrisi our contact for rental in the states and Sani our contact in MA made our experience just perfect! There were 4 couples traveling together, we stayed for 10 days and this was a great amount of time. We went on many adventures that Sani set up for us but we also had time to lounge and enjoy the house! Everyone we encountered would say, you are in the best home in all of MA. We did look at a few other rental homes as well as a few really nice resorts and we agree! You get fabulous breezes being at the top of the hill, remarkable views and a very large pool. We saw the most jungle wildlife right there in our yard, sloths, toucans, Hollar monkeys, white faced monkeys, little spider tee-tee monkeys just on and on! The staff is wonderful Javier and Dixie are kind, honest people, no worries about your things! Dixie washed and cleaned daily. Our chef, Lili cooked for us twice! What a treat!! She made drinks and served them to us on the rooftop terrace along with appetizers and then set a most beautiful table and served delicious foods , desserts and even would make us a banana bread for the next morning! Sani went with us on a couple of our adventures and we all felt that we had made new friends with he and Lili! You are centrally located in the town of MA and you can walk to wonderful restaurants, Grocies and the beach. We did learn to ride the bus which was .75 and this would bring you back up from the beach and take you into the town of Qupose. There was a fruit market in the town of Qupose on Friday and Saturdays, that was fun! We did not have a car and that was fine. The house is just wonderful, everything that you need. The bedrooms are air conditioned and the house is all open air. The master is really stunning, the other 3 bedrooms are adequate. You really don't stay in the rooms very much as the pool area is where we spent most of our time when not on a wonderful adventure! Sani and staff will take care of everything!! We will all be back!!"

  • Great view and location

    "Best part of this villa is its location and view. Can't be beat. Comfortable bed. Large shower with a view. Market right next door. Not many extras in villa but what is provided is adequate for any short stay."

  • An excellent adventure

    "Our group ranged in age from 20's through "up there" and this was a perfect house for all of us. The pre-trip assistance from Vanessa was extremely helpful and made trip planning much easier (and exciting!) . The house has four wonderful suites so each group had their own space with wonderful views from all rooms. The common areas were comfortable and the infinity pool was inviting throughout the day. We cooked meals without difficulty in the equipped kitchen. Hot/cold water cooler provided, as well as basic spices and kitchen needs. Vanessa made herself available to us throughout the week and helped with shopping and trip planning. It was very easy to get cab service from the house, and there are great activities (beaches, surfing , bars, dining, national forest) within 5-10 minute drive from the house. We enjoyed lounging on the patios and taking in the beautiful views from the house. An excellent house for an excellent adventure."
