  • Beautiful home in Manuel Antonio away from it all

    "My wife, eight year old son and I stayed at Casa Gina from 3/25-3/31/2016 and it is a wonderful home. Situated atop a high hill in a nice gated community you feel secluded, but you're only 2 minutes away from restaurants, sights and beaches. The home is well appointed, very clean and large enough to accommodate 6 very comfortably. You have all the comforts of home with washer/dryer, full kitchen with dishwasher, BBQ, pool, safe and alarm. They have an always hot hot water system that some complained about, and at first we agreed until we figured out to keep the handles about middle and the water will stay a pretty constant warm...otherwise you will cycle between extreme heat and then cold water. My one complaint is the wifi, it is very slow and only allows for checking email, sending text messages (no pictures in those) and maybe doing some light web browsing, but don't expect pages to load quickly. Also, don't expect to stream anything either, it was enough for what we needed, but had hoped for a slightly faster connection.You can expect to see sloths, monkeys, iguanas and lots of birds in the back yard, which was nice when we'd relax at the pool. Tip, if you are going to do any tours of any kind, they will usually pick you up right from the house or at least the front gate of the community saving you from having to find places there, which is not always easy since many streets don't have signs in CR. Take the ATV tour to Rainmaker, its a great area and has a local brewery there serving fantastic beer. Gary and Gina were very easy to work with and Jeannette and Carlos (the local contacts in Costa Rica) were great. We would definitely go back again and recommend this place to anyone!!"

  • Unforgetably positive experience

    "It was a beautiful, well maintained building with an excellent chef and staff. You feel like you are in the heart of the rainforest and yet stores and great bars/restaurants are close enough to visit without taking a cab."

  • 5 Star Resort, 4 Star House

    "This was our third time in this town, but first time at this resort. There was friendly staff throughout the property, beautiful gardens, walking trails, pools, shuttle service, restaurants with excellent food, but the BEST part was the private beach and bar nearby. It is an amazing house and we enjoyed our time here. We arranged with Green Coast to have groceries waiting for us upon arrival, which added a nice touch to their service. There were two disappointing features of the house that I feel I need to note here. The first and most important was the view. The 9th picture on this listing shows an amazing unobstructed view of the ocean and hills below the casa, with the caption, "view of the Pacific". Unfortunately, this is NOT the view that you get from the balcony this house, as there is now a very large palm tree that is blocking much of the center of the view. There are now only ocean views from the sides of the balcony, when you look to the right and left of the giant palm tree. I was very disappointed to see the tree, as I had chosen this house mainly because of the view that is advertised in the ad. I hope that they take a new updated photos of their "view", because I feel that the current ad is quite misleading. The second issue that we encountered was that the two toilets downstairs that are attached to the bedrooms are located outside on the balcony, along with the showers. We liked that the showers are outside, but in the middle of the night, none of us wanted to use a toilet outside as there were bats hanging from the ceiling above. This meant that we had to walk up the stairs to the main floor in the middle of the night to use the first floor's toilet. On the second morning we started finding large piles of bat feces in our showers that we would then have to step around. The last day, when the maid service came, we assumed she would clean up the shower area, but the piles were still there after she left. By then it was too late to call for cleanup. Overall, we had a fantastic trip to CR and really enjoyed the location. The house was almost perfect for us. I do not think we will stay at this house again in the future, but will consider other houses nearby."

  • Casa de Frutas

    "Paradise! Amazing place!! Casa de Frutas is the most beautiful home with stunning views and impeccable attention to detail. The exquisite furnishings make you feel as if you stepped on a movie set on your own private island without the lights camera action! Pure luxury, so inviting, warm and relaxing. The views are beyond anything I can describe; prettiest place on earth may be the best way to describe Casa de Frutas at Tulemar. From the moment we arrived, we were transformed into another place and time. The service team welcomed us with open arms, and took great care to make our visit very special. Sunshine warmed our skin as we enjoyed the beautiful rain forest, warm silver sand private beaches, hiking trails and sunsets that enchanted us to stop and enjoy the many wonders of a more relaxed time and place. We saw monkeys play, beautiful birds soar above the trees, colorful butterflies and soaked our skin in the warm water of the pacific! Such a peaceful place! Highly recommend! Only suggestion; stay as long as you can as this place is heaven on earth and once there you will never want to leave!"
