  • Beautiful property!

    "We booked after reading all the positive reviews and were not disappointed! The property was absolutely beautiful and incredibly well-maintained. Deborah and Pete were wonderful hosts, and Pete's tour made the trip for us. Having their recommendations for tours and excursions ensured we got to see the best Costa Rica had to offer, while the seclusion of the house allowed us to relax and enjoy the rainforest. The pictures do not even come close to doing the property justice -- it is an unbelievably beautiful spot that you have to see to believe it's real. We had an amazing time -- thank you!"

  • Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!!

    "What can I say about this perfect house?? My husband and I have rented houses all over the world and this was by far the best one we've ever had. I had to pick my chin up off the floor when we first arrived. It is absolutely beautiful! The view is the first thing that grabs you and never gets old. The house is amazing and the owner has thought of everything!! The more than fully equipped kitchen was perfect. We cooked most of our meals in because we didn't want to leave paradise. We spent a leisurely week here either staying on our hilltop paradise or checking out the beautiful beaches. From the birds in the morning to the spectacular sunsets in the afternoon to the stars at night I can't say enough wonderful things about this property. I call Denise a "rock star" in the property management field. She met us at a restaurant and we followed her to the house. She was available to us the entire week if we needed anything. She made us feel most welcome. When (not if) we come back again we want to stay here longer. It was so hard to leave. We highly recommend the Exotica restaurant for a delicious and romantic dinner and the Bamboo Room restaurant for a great meal and live music. John and Janet (the owners) made us feel right at home. If you're spending time in the Ojochal area this house is a must!!!"

  • Amazing...did I mention how Amazing?

    "First let me state that I have used many rentals through some sort of Rental by owner website and Daniel is by the far the most helpful, patient and kind owner we have rented from thus far. Though we were not able to meet him (booo, I wanted to thank him in person) he is a fantastic host. Thank you for everything. Now to the Villa, the pictures do not do this place justice. We rented this home to be the location for our 10-year wedding anniversary/vow renewal ceremony and I'm so glad I didn't go with a modern/Hollywood style beach home. This is pure Costa Rican Art/Architecture. We are spending 7 days here (yes still here) and our group( 5 adults) is simply amazed by this home. The pictures cannot show how large and beautiful each bedroom is, the staircase leading to each bedroom is something you would see out of a movie. Each bedroom has a private bath and shower, plus there is one on the lower level by the outdoor shower for when you are spending time by the pool or cooking in the kitchen. I am an avid cook and the kitchen was amazing. I was very impressed with the high quality cuisinart pots and pans with a layer of copper heat distribution. This is a major plus for those who love to cook. The views are amazing from all angles. You fall asleep to the sounds of various birds and awake to the howler monkeys in the distance. You will be visited by iguanas, bats, and insects but don't be discouraged..It's all part of being surrounded by jungle. Please be diligent with the compost bucket and garbage can. His property is beautiful with amazing tropical plants plus a greenhouse and the compost is needed. The hill to the house is beyond steep but we rented ATVs from Pacific Dirt Roads and had no problems going up the driveway in 2nd or 3rd gear. Lola and Carlos are wonderful staff and you will be truly amazed by this home, host, staff, the residential dogs who would followed me everywhere (Ray) especially, and the views. Please book..You will not be disappointed. One last thing, if you are worried about no AC, don't..being on a hill, with massive windows and the fans will keep you cool all night and sleep like a baby. Thank you again Daniel for everything, you and your home are both truly amazing. Pura Vida!!!"

  • 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."
