“Oasis of calm”
Reviewed 29 April 2019 for a stay in January 2019

We stopped over just for two nights before meeting family to head up to Arenal. While we stayed in a small but adequate room we were invited for drinks in two apartments that were really lovely and we wished we could book there for a longer period. Our hosts were very accommodating, the pools were a delight, the views were breathtaking and the convivial atmosphere among the guests would make this a great place to park yourself for an extended stay.

Glad you had a restful stay here! Our guests tend to be gregarious & friendly, making for a happy atmosphere. As you discovered, we have a wide variety of accommodations - from simple private room and bath to spacious Villas with multiple bedrooms. Each one is different in size and feel...In the past few days, we have been visited by a flock of colourful parrots, coatimundi, and turtles nesting on the beaches of Flamingo and Brasilito. A few light rains have turned the area into a lush and verdent Paradise! We hope that your next visit will be for a longer period so that you can fully appreciate what our area affords. As they say- Costa Rica: No artificial ingredients.PURA VIDA - and thank you for choosing Villas Casa Loma.We look forward to seeing you again. Tom and Igor

“The villas are a very attractive, peaceful, and friendly place to stay.”
Reviewed 23 April 2019 for a stay in February 2019

Villas Casa Loma feels like a second home. In the past several years I have vacationed in Argentina, Ireland, Maui, St. Thomas, and Catalina Island, CA. During that time I have returned to Villas Casa Loma 4 times.

The live-in owners make the place feel like home. The accommodations, landscaping, and swimming pools are extremely well maintained.

If you have not been to Villas Casa Loma, you are missing a genuine Costa Rica experience.

“Spectacular view and wonderful management and service”
Reviewed 16 February 2019 for a stay in January 2019

I have stayed in various rooms and suites at Villas Casa Loma over the past several winters. Igor and Tom, the owner-managers, are always welcoming and accommodating, as are their staff, who themselves are on board year after year, always a good sign. The lush grounds are maintained like a nature preserve; and the two pools are in spectacular locations, allowing views of the Pacific, as do most spots on the hillside grounds. Free parking is available, and beautiful beaches, stores, yoga, and restaurants are within easy reach.

Special thanks, once again, for your visit, Steve! We're delighted that you again found our property so comfortable. Vistas of the Pacific, tropical gardens, 2 tranquil pools, accommodating staff and a wide variety of special restaurants, shops, tour agencies, all combined make for a magic vacation.
Check out the monkeys, parrots and other birds, whales, and dolphins. They all heighten the experience of a fun visit to the tropics! With some luck,you may even atttend one of the folkloric festivals, such as the one currently being held in nearby Brasilito.
We are looking forward to seeing you again next year for your annual winter vacation here in our little corner of Paradise. PURA VIDA !!

“​PARADISE ON EARTH”
Reviewed 6 September 2017 for a stay in November 2016

After many visits to Villas Casa Loma, I continue to love the location and the quiet comfort afforded by hosts Tom and Igor. They are always available with insightful suggestions for great restaurants, arranging sightseeing trips and generally adding that extra "spice" to my holiday experiences!
Once again I chose a simple, comfortable private double bedroom with ensuite bath. The views of the morning sun over the marina area and spectacular sunsets are more than justification for choosing this tranquil spot! Add to that the convenience of being able to make my own coffee in the morning and keep a few a few snacks in the bar fridge was an added plus.I love the quiet, the views, the gardens and the pool, too! All told, a "perfect holiday retreat". Thanks to Villas Casa Loma I have met many new friends in the area and will definitely be back again! I highly recommend Villas Casa Loma's friendly atmosphere and relaxing ambience! See you again soon.

We will be waiting for you, Anton! As you have discovered, mornings do not get much better than here in Flamingo and sunsets are always magnificent! Wake to the calls of howler monkeys and brilliant sunshine, sparkling ocean with boats bobbing in the bay out front! The prospect of new and fun things to do every day should bring you back again and again. We - and your many friends here - are looking forward to your next visit! PURA VIDA! Tom and Igor

Villas Casa Loma was pretty much ideal. Igor and Tom were extremely kind, welcoming, and helpful; I particularly appreciated Igor's willingness to share his vast and deep understanding of Costa Rica itself. The rooms were spacious, airy and comfortable; the two pools were sparkling clean and often we had one of them to ourselves. We loved being here and hope to come back for a longer stay.

Hola Linda!
Thank you for your delightful review of Villas Casa Loma...
We, too, hope to see you again for a longer stay next time and trust that this will be in the cards.
As you could probably tell, the design and location of each of the accommodations here were carefully thought out and planned in every detail for the comfort and security of our guests.
Both the nature and the people of this gentle land add tremendously to the experiences one has here. Enjoy nature. Enjoy the many nearby beaches - each with its own special "character". Once can indulge one's senses of adventure or simply relax under a palm and do nothing at all. The choice is always yours! Until soon ...PURA VIDA! Tom and Igor
