Guestbook comments from the owner
On est de retour à la réalité malheureusement.
On a adoré notre séjour au Costa Riva et dans ta super villa, un souvenir mémorable.
Comme prévu un matin on a vu grand groupe de singes et un autre matin on a même vu un paresseux (photos en pièces jointes)
Et tous les soirs, nous avons assisté à un coucher de soleil à couper le souffle, moment qu'on a manqué une seule fois car c'était trop beau.
Merci encore pour tout, on pense déjà y retourner un jour et on envoie la villa comme référence à nos amis qui veulent aller dans le Sud et vivre un moment magique.
5 based on 15 traveler reviews
The house and setting provided an amazing retreat and offered breathtaking views of both the ocean and jungle. Kumari provided excellent service by assisting us with a few groceries for our first day and recommending a kayak tour. The house is very nicely decorated and very comfortable (the kitchen is stocked with pretty much anything you would need to prepare food or beverages-including spices). You could choose to not leave the grounds and have a wonderful time but the location provided easy access to beaches, restaurants, activities, etc. The owner phoned to ensure we were pleased with everything; a very nice touch! I cannot offer any negatives - only rave reviews of every aspect of the experience. Costa Rica is a magnificent place and the house is a perfect accompaniment!
Amazing in every way!!!!
Everything was spectacular. The property manager Kumarie was available, helpful and had a genuine kindness to her. The home was immaculate and the views were truly breath taking. The area is fairly remote but everything you need is easily accessible. Fine dining in ojochal was great, and beach and activities were plentiful with a quick drive to Dominical. The Nauyaca waterfall tour on horseback is an absolute must! We stayed only one short week but know we will return to the area and hopefully this amazing property again.
Séjour au paradis
Nous arrivons d'un magnifique séjour d'une semaine dans un coin de paradis. Après une route pas si longue que cela, nous avons rencontré Kumari, la ''house manager'' de la place ... quelle femme extraordinaire. Elle a pris le temps de nous informer sur les choses à faire, les places où aller manger et nous conduire à la villa. Rendu à ce petit coin de paradis, nous avons pu nous y installer comme à la maison, l'endroit est luxueux et confortable, très propre. La vue est époustouflante et c'est près de tout.. Nous avons eu la chance d'admirer un couple de toucan toute la semaine. Les restos des alentours sont excellent, Mama and papa's à recommander. La plage que nous avons préféré est celle de Ventana's. Nous avons hâte d'y retourner, ce fut un séjour des plus agréable. Merci pour tout et au plaisir de se revoir !!!

If you are even considering visiting this part of Costa Rica, do yourself a favour and rent this villa!! I guarantee you will love every minute of it. We just returned from a one month stay (our honeymoon). This place is so private (at the end of the road) and in such a lovely spot perched high up on the hill with jaw dropping views. We woke up and fell asleep to the sounds of the jungle all around us. We had two "resident" toucans hanging out in the trees we watched every day! The beaches (so close - with Parque Nacional Marina Ballena just hop skip and jump away) are pretty much deserted and extremely beautiful. We saw Howler monkeys on Playa Arco, Playa Ventanas is just stunning, and we went horseback riding with Lalo on Playa Tortuga, where we saw baby Olive Ridley sea turtles just hatched that day and got to release them into the ocean. Definitely a highlight of our trip!! We did go and visit Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio, which is a two hour drive north. Beware - they try and get you to pull over far outside the park and charge ridiculous amounts for guides through the park - but keep on driving closer to the entrance and save your money on the guided tours…the park is easily navigated and the Capuchin monkeys are so used to people they were within inches of us trying to see what was in our backpacks!! DO get a guide and hike Corcovado or Piedras Blancas national parks. You will be glad you did! We did our hikes in the morning and spent the afternoons at this gorgeous villa chilling out in the pool. Ahhhhhh - thank goodness for the pool. SO lovely and refreshing! The restaurants in Ojochal are haute cuisine. Who'd have thought? In the middle of the jungle in Costa Rica?? Citrus was our favourite, and Exotica was excellent. The massages at Alegria Spa in Dominical are inexpensive by North American standards - we had massages every week! And DO stop at Jolly Rogers for their wings - delicious! Hopefully Wayne is there - as he makes the BEST margaritas. We really didn't want to leave this very special place…this villa is truly exquisite in a gorgeous tropical paradise! Thank you so much for sharing Liana! Pura Vida!
one month in paradise!
We spent a month overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The villa was perfect, exactly as described.
The kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed. The beds were so comfortable, better than could have hoped for. The pool....heaven!!
The restaurants in the area were all fantastic, we loved every meal out. Our favorites, The Dome (uvita), Jolly Roger ( Dominical) and in Ojochal Mama e Papa's, Citrus, Coranado, and the Tilapia Farm. We stayed busy with so many excursions: Osa zip line, Cano island snorkeling, ATV ride, horseback ride to waterfalls, and snorkeling near The Whale's Tail....there is so much to or relaxing at the villa listening to the waves in the distance.
Kumari was so incredible, making sure our stay was perfect, she is one of those rare gems that always shines and makes those near feel warm and welcomed.
We are looking forward to our next trip to Costa Rica and would love to return to Jardin Del Pacifico!! Thank you so much for sharing your exquisite home with us!!
The PERFECT mix of luxury, location, and tranquility.
The pictures do NOT do the house justice. It is gorgeous. Located several hundred feet above Playa Tortuga it affords beautiful views as well as quiet solitude. The drive up to the villa is steep and there are some big rocks in the road. Definitely recommend a 4x4, not only for access to the villa, but also for pretty much everything else in that area. If you are driving in from San Jose... PLAN for 4 hours. it should be a 3 hour drive, but road construction and the myriad of buses, volume of traffic and low speed limits 60-80 KPH make it much longer than it should be. But hey... YOU are ON VACATION... so relax.. you will get there and Kumari will wait for you.. The A/C in the bedrooms is more than adequate to keep you comfortable at night. The main room and kitchen area are best with all the windows open and the fans cranked up on high. The breeze keeps that area just right. The pool is great no matter what time of the day you wish to swim. The house has more lights and switches that a small town and the lights will draw insects at night. And geckos LOVE this place. They are everywhere on the grounds. There are also some very loud birds that love to wake you up at the crack of dawn. But that's all part of a villa in the jungle. All the fixtures and fittings of the house are top notch. No water pressure issues while we were there. Lots of local places to eat close by.. but you are missing out if you don't go to BM and the local markets in Uvita, buy some food and use the outdoor grill and kitchen. Good internet and wifi speeds as well as netflix and apple TV. But you won't spend a lot of time in front of the TV... It rained one evening... so hard the frogs were jumping out of the trees into the living room.... and we watched some TV that night. Kumari, the house manager is awesome and she will make sure you have whatever you need. Her dive shop is only 5 minutes away. STOP LOOKING and rent this house... you will not regret it. We will be back next year to do it again.
