  • 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."

  • Quiet Paradise

    "My boyfriend and I stayed for a week in April at Kris' place. The cabin was clean and perfect! It had everything we needed to have a comfortable stay while in Zancudo. The screened in patio was my fave! hammocks and fans, an our door table. PERFECT! I was covered in bug bites by the time we got here so that was a nice way to spend time reading outside and not get eaten alive. The beach is steps away and the sand and water are beautiful. Kris has bikes you can use to get around town, there is only one road so that is all you need. She helped us arrange horseback riding trips, wildlife rescue trips and joined us for dinner one evening at our request because she was just so lovely. Kris made us feel right at home, from introducing us to her friends to inviting us to community yoga and setting me up with one lady to rent paddle boards to do a sunrise dolphin tour. We loved everything about our time in Zancudo, it is very, very relaxed here so don't show up prepared to cram a lot in every day. Bring a book, or borrow one from the lending library in the cabin, get a massage, listen to birds and meet the neighbours. We can't wait to go back!"

  • Nice and safe

    "Good location, nice house, 10 min walk to the beach. House was big enough for four adults and a child. Safe condo."

  • 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!"
