  • Can't wait to return!

    "Our party of 8 recently returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Java. My husband and I and our two girls (ages 10 and 8) traveled from Cleveland, Ohio with our dear friends and their two like age daughters. We have visited Santa Teresa twice before but this is the first time we took the children along, after a quick internet search we decided that Casa Java would be perfect for our weeklong stay and I am so pleased to say we were right! The property is lovely and the house stunning, the pictures truly do not do it justice. The main living space is open, unique, and entranced both children and adults alike. The children loved having their "own space" in the double bedroom. Iguanas, birds, and yes monkeys abound! The pool was a mainstay for everyone after returning from the various activities booked by the outstanding concierge who arranged surfing lessons for the kids, a private boat tour to tortugas, buggy rentals, dinner reservations, fishing tours, zip-lining, and child care. All were amazing, the childcare provider (Brittany) was a favorite of both the kids and parents. The surf instructors were fantastic and had the kids up on their boards in no time. All of our other excursions were wonderful and unlike anything we had experienced on our prior visits. When we returned to the house everything was back in its place which is incredibly difficult with 4 young girls! The carekeeping staff were truly lovely, specially arranging all the children's toys in their rooms in a different way each day that had them racing to the door to their room to see what surprise was in store. We truly appreciated all of the staff, who were gracious and unobtrusive. I could not recommend this property more, it is truly a special place and I am so grateful for this is my children's first view of Santa Teresa, they enjoyed it so much we asked them to share a page in the beautiful guest book. We meant one page. They wrote four."

  • Surfing trip to Santa Teresa

    "Had a wonderful time staying at Casa Infinity. The house was beautiful and we loved the outside pouch and pool. Julie was fabulous and did an excellent job handling all our requests. She did everything from handling our transportation to setting up fishing and a trip to Tortuga. I highly recommend Aaron and David also. They cooked us dinner one night and we went fishing another day with them. If I had to recommend anything I would say bring plenty of cash because nobody takes credit cards in Santa Teresa. Casa Infinity was definitely a winner!"

  • Always a treat!

    "We've stayed at Mali several times and it is always, always, always a great experience. The ladies at Batik are helpful, accommodating and all around lovely. The house is as shown in the photos - in a word, gorgeous! Plenty to do close by and yet a bit removed from the hustle of the main beach area so that you feel you can relax."

  • Fair with Flair

    "I read the review complaining about missing pool tiles, and I have been thinking about what constitutes value in a vacation rental. I guess value occurs when reality meets expectations. My wife and I stayed at Cocobolo for eight nights in March, followed two weeks later by four days in Cancun. In such places as Maui and Cancun, the native people, plants and wildlife have been eradicated to make room for wall-to-wall hotels, each with its own private chunk of beach, a pool and a place to get drunk while being catered to by white-jacketed servants. If this is your idea of heaven, then by all means go to Maui. We found Trey helpful and friendly, attentive and supportive. He did not, however, make our drinks. Cocobolo is "in amongst 'em." The roads are terrible and dusty, but Cocobolo gets much less dust than does anyplace six miles away in Santa Teresa. We enjoyed buying local fish and produce in S.T. and Cobano, and picked up our de rigeur souvenir machete at the hardware store in Cobano. Trey took us fishing one day, and we drove the Pacific Coastal Highway, i.e. the beach at low tide, and we hit nearly 60 mph on the smooth, open sand. Of course, we had rented a car. The beaches are extensive and very sparsely populated, despite there being good fishing and a shallow, gradual, sandy slope into the water. I estimate I waded out 100 yards and was no more than waist-high, except when Manzanillo's famous surf came crashing in. Great for beachcombing, suntanning and cloud watching. Monkeys in the trees every day -- both howlers and white-faced. We saw violaceous trogons, cinnamon hummingbirds and other exotic-to-us birds. I don't know if the air conditioning worked, because we never turned it on. Lovely weather throughout. The "missing" screening around the pools was not missing. It was being installed, and the hooks had just been welded to the posts. There is no law against writing a negative review, but I can say we are happy the guests at the other villa were much less dour than our predecessor. Negative: the one thing that caught me off guard was that I expected somebody else's vacation house that was being let for weeks for income. Trey has three or four (didn't count 'em, and they are scattered) on the property. Would we go back? Probably not, but only because our history says we go forward. We had a great time. Thanks, Trey!"
