  • As beautiful as it was serene!

    "Casa Antigua was by far the best choice for us on our first trip to Costa Rica. My Wife and I had a fantastic trip with our 9 yr old granddaughter thanks in large to the great activity recommendations and hospitality Clinton offered. The area was easy to navigate with a 4x4 a must, our Hyundai Tucson was just fine with a GPS. The house was immaculate, spacious and open and the property was as beautiful as it was serene. A fantastic place to come back to after our daily excursions (Beach, ATV, Zip Line…) with the sunset view and nights filled with ocean breeze and sound. We look forward to our next visit to Casa Antigua and piece of Shangri-La. Pura Vida!"

  • Exceptional Property!

    "Our stay at Bali Rica was one of the highlights of our month in Costa Rica (and we stayed in 8 different properties!) Everything about our visit, from the artful decor of the casita to the exquisite gardens showcased host Sharon's attention to detail to create a place of beauty and serenity. I am still dreaming about reading on the outside covered daybed and cooling off in the private plunge pool. The bed is supremely comfortable with high quality sheets and lovely batique accents. The kitchen was well equipped. Our favorite pastime was just sitting on the porch, lovely breeze from the fans, gazing at the tropical garden, the huge bamboo and listening to the parrots fly overhead! We stretched in the screened in yoga studio and wandered the trails. Honestly, the property is just gorgeous with so many flowering and fruit trees and lush tropical greenery. Sharon even encouraged us to pick some wild ginger and harvest some lemongrass and greens from her garden. Private, gated, safe and quiet. Bali Rica is ideally located in Ojochal...close to the French bakery and the best restaurants , try Exotica! Our favorite beach was Tortuga, go early in the morning and you may see a flock of scarlet macaws. Breathtaking! Thank you, Sharon, for a truly memorable stay! We have every intention of returning. Highly recommended!"

  • Beautiful Grounds & View

    "We enjoyed our stay at Casa Vista very much. The view by the pool is stunningly beautiful. Diane & Peter are wonderful hosts. They will help you with planning tours or just be there for a chat. It's nice to know if you need anything they are always there to help. There was one little issue which really wasn't too much a big deal. We had booked a different cabin/casita, the one with the view but unfortunately we couldn't stay there because of construction. Diane did put us in a different cabin which was larger but it didn't have the wonderful view like the one we had originally booked. The pool area was lovely, we definitely took advantage cooling off in the pool after a hot day touring. The weather was prefect but definitely keep in mind during the dry season it gets really hot! We kept busy everyday, there are many things to do and wonderful places to eat. We found many beaches with no one on them and others that were somewhat crowded so don't be afraid to venture off the main road. Our stay was for 18 days, lots of time to get to know the area and time to chill. During our stay the area hosts a big festival called Envision. It definitely changes the feel of the area. It was much busier and the beaches at times were crowed. So if you decide to go to the South Pacific/Domincal area in late February and don't want the crowds you may want to double check the dates of this festival/Envision. If we had known we would have definitely avoided staying in that area. You definitely need a 4WD! Don't even try to get there without one. But once you get to the top and see the view you will see it's all worth it. So just go with it and enjoy the adventure. Diane & Peter have a wonderful dog, Kirby that I fell in love with, so very cute. You won't have any regrets staying at Casa Vista, you will just have great memories that will stay with you for many years. Thanks to Diane, Peter & Kirby for making our stay a wonderful experience."

  • 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."
