  • Fantastic spot!

    "We recently got home from a trip to Costa Rica, and the Casa de Amigos was by far our favorite place to have stayed. I highly recommend it. The house itself is in a nice location - it's right near Santa Elena, which is a jumping off point for all sorts of activities and adventures. There are also loads of restaurants and a decent super there. The house is beautiful and extremely well maintained. The caretakers are doing a great job - Ken and co., you are very fortunate to have Guillermo and Evelyn for friends and employees. Everything was clean and well stocked. The house was spacious for our family of 6 (we're two adults and four smallish kids). Our kids loved that the caretakers have a little dog. I loved the delicious bakery smells coming from their home - and the cake sample that Evelyn brought over! The kitchen was well appointed and easy to cook in, which for our family saved a lot of money. The cloud forest is amazing - don't pass up an opportunity to hike here! We enjoyed the hanging bridges tour, and the ziplines were definitely a highlight. Heading into the trip, I didn't think we'd get to zip as our girls are all smallish (between 40 and 60 lbs), but Evelyn called and found that we could indeed zip. So fun. And surprisingly un-scary, even for our 4, 6, 9 and 11 year old kids. I only wished we had more time to spend in Monteverde."

  • Amazing House!

    "This house was perfect for our family of 5. The view is worth the walk. The caretaker, Bismark, was so kind and helpful. It's comforting that he lives very close to the house. Beds were nice; kitchen was user friendly. The outside shower was perfect. House was nicely stocked with games, books, and useful picture cards for local animals. We saw tons of animals from the decks - monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds, etc. We enjoyed Bismark's dogs which hung out and made things feel like home. We had a 4x4 and were able to drive down to a beach just below the house (you can park on the beach). House had a small cooler, a few beach chairs and great beach towels. There was a second beach a short drive or walk below the house where you can pay someone a small amount to watch your car while you enjoy the beach. We saw a few sloths here and we rented snorkel gear at this beach. (Snorkeling was just ok here and one of my kids stepped on a sea urchin, but that has nothing to do with the house review). Bottom line, you cannot go wrong with this place. It's in a little community of other houses where you feel close to people (which is sometimes comforting in a foreign country), but it is also private. It was hot as fire while we were there, but there were several fans around the house. It's the ULTIMATE coffee or wine on the deck kind of place. I wish I was there right now!"

  • Family Retreat

    "Family of five getting away from the hustle of life. The house is absolutely beautiful, and the photos really don't do it justice. The wrap around deck and private pool with waterfall are great , and the views are amazing. It is a 15 min drive to main road, so when you venture out it is usually for the day. The electricity went out a few times while we were there-but other then that it was awesome. Howler monkeys, toucans, and lizards definitely entertained us. Uvita 360 was great for surfing, beach club was great- good body surfing. la Fogata became one of our favorite places to eat- we also enjoyed Sibu (amazing coffee), and The Bakers Bean is a great spot to pick up fresh emenadas to go. Thanks for sharing your home- very spacious and lovely."

  • Amazing Experience at Playa Lapa

    "Our family spent 9 amazing days at play Lapa. The house is situated perfectly between the jungle and the beach. Every morning, and evening, the various types of monkeys would visit the mango trees on the property. We'd sit and watch them take one bite of the mango and toss it to the ground. The Macaws squawked at one another in the surrounding trees. We'd see as many as 30 macaws flying overhead at once. The beach was a bit rough but swim-able at low tied. The kids played in the waves daily. We'd visit the neighboring lodges and hike though the jungle in search of howler monkeys. The accommodation were perfect for our family. It gave us a chance to disconnect from the reality of daily job and responsibilities and focus on one another and nature. This was a wonderful experience and we are already planning our return."
