So Nice!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is a great size with a pool just steps from the front door. Barry and Annie were so nice and helpful, and were right upstairs in case we needed anything at all or had any questions. The washer and dryer were awesome to have. We will stay here again for sure!!

Very good house, clean, and nearby

  • 4 of 5

We (family) stayed with teenagers boys. Stay was very good.

The owners Annie and Barry are very friendly and will explain everything you need to know about the place and things to do. They gave a drop us to the bus for the airport and to buy antihistamine medicine. Quepos town is close by but not walkable - taxi is $4 from house.

We didn't rent a car we used the public bus and taxi to go to beach and restaurants. Public bus is 5 min walk to the stop.

Taxi is $10 to go to Manual Antonio national park. If you are planning to go to many of the eateries and many local beaches then locally renting a car is convenient as the bus does not stop everywhere and frequency is approx 30 min.

We didn't cook, we stayed for 3 nights.

Facility wise the house has everything incl washer/dryer and cooking utensils.

Kids used the pool there's outdoor shower useful coming from a beach.

We enjoyed the stay very much - no complaints at all.

Location, pool, wonderful hosts, privacy

  • 4 of 5

We were sorry we could only stay a week. A pool steps from the door. No more than five minutes drive to the park and secluded beaches. The hosts were wonderful and gave us privacy. There could have been a few more nice touches for guests: better lighting, a few condiments and cooking supplies and a bit of soap for the least enough to get us started.

Stay here if you can!

Private Jungle Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A great get-away lovely house with pool, sitting in the middle of a jungle backdrop! Wonderful outdoor atmosphere. The interior of the house is everything that you need; huge living room, dining, and kitchen area. Floor to ceiling windows that let in lots of light, we never had to close the drapes even at night. Bedroom faced the jungle, and it was like looking at a painting, absolutely beautiful. The house is just off the main road between both towns. Best way around is by car or taxi. Bus service is at the end of road to either town. My husband and I enjoyed the owners, Annie and Berry. Always available if needed, just upstairs. Barry took us to the bank and to the grocery when we first got there. Was a big help at both places. Annie gave us a tour of "Kids Saving the Rain forest" a selfless cause for injured animals native to Costa Rica, where she volunteers. We were fortunate to have 4 white face monkeys visit our pool area the very first morning we were there. Captured all on video. We stayed five nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Especially in the pool at night under the stars! We plan to stay at this house again in the future, Pure Life Villa Vista Verde! Steve and Joyce

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The property is very nice and clean and well managed.

It has everything what is needed for comfortable stay, very nice bedroom with wonderful view of the jungle ,big bright living room with view of nice swimming pool,well equipped kitchen, laundry room and barbecue.

But the biggest bonus is kindness of our hosts.

The owners, Annie and Barry are a wonderful couple, with big hearts, always willing to help and show you the way around. They did everything they can to help us feel here like at home and we will definitely recommend their home to our friends and everyone else.
