  • Family Compund

    "Great unique compound for a family retreat with some room to spread out. Three structures and a pool right up from the beach. A little on the rustic side but no complaints for the value. Owner and local manager were a pleasure to work with."

  • Excelente lugar, recomendado al 100%.

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Excelente lugar e instalaciones. La única recomendación es que no enciendan el AC cuando hacen limpieza, para que cuando uno llega de la playa o alrededores, no sienta un cambio de temperatura tan fuerte."

  • Mostly Terrific

    "We visited in mid-July with my daughter, her friend, and her two children and had a mostly terrific experience. The main part of the house and the pool are really incredible. Loved the open concept - always had a great view of the ocean/bay whether from the house or pool. The surroundings provided privacy and the feeling of being away from it all. Loved having the awesome pool to ourselves (and the occasional vulture that would land for a drink). Being the "rainy" season had us a little concerned but Javier told us not to worry - that the days would be beautiful and any rain would be in the evening or night. He was exactly right! A typical day was to get up and spend the day in and around the pool. Didn't miss TV and/or using my phone to stay in touch with people in the U.S. The internet service was sufficient to pick up texts, emails, and news. The house, pool and grounds are well maintained by Javier and his crew and they were quick to take care of a couple of small problems (light on patio not working, bulbs burnt out). Some things to consider: The house is about 3 hours from the nearest major airport. We flew in to Liberia - easy to get through customs and Javier was there to pick us up and had a great opportunity to see much of the country while driving down - including about 40 minutes of gravel road. The sidewalk to the hotel / restaurant / beach is quite steep and anyone with health issues may not be able to negotiate it. There are other nearby (walking distance) restaurants - not a problem for us since Javier helped us get to grocery stores, meat markets and fruit stands where we bought was was needed to cook / grill our meals. The two main bedrooms (while roomy) are somewhat rustic. One bedroom in the back building is small but has an attached bathroom. The other bedroom is large, but no attached bathroom so will need to go to one of the other bedrooms for access to a bathroom. All bathrooms are only accessible from bedrooms. Javier provides not only excellent property management but also provided us with transportation when needed and helped with an excursion that helped build great memories. He is great to work with as everyone has said! Overall - a great vacation - relaxing - beautiful - great times - great memories with family - great pictures - great times in the pool (did I say great times in the pool)!"

  • Gorgeous Retreat

    "We traveled to Casa Smith this passed March Break and were blown away by the beauty of the property and upkeep, it looks exactly like it does in the photos when you arrive and like the other reviews, much wildlife right off the balcony! We traveled with our 11 year old daughter, and 12 and 16 year old boys and enjoyed every minute. Surfing and boogy boarding in Jaco was amazing were you could also rent umbrellas and sun chairs. We also visited the rainfall and hiked up and swam in the water there which is so close to the Casa, and toured the 'crocodile' bridge close by. We hiked into Carrera National Park and we in awe of the playing monkeys (capuchins) and entertained with them eating bananas! We ziplined in near Jaco as well on 12 different lines coming down the mountaint- only about 25 minute drive away as well. So much to do and see, or just relax by your very private pool ( which was cleaned twice while we were there) Calm serenity or adventure, whatever you desire is at your fingertips! Pura Vida! Thanks so much for all your help Ron!"
