“Amazing Views, Beautiful Home, Great Support from Star Villas”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I had never rented a home before, especially in a location that I had never been, so going in I was a bit nervous. As soon as we arrived, Diego, one of the concierge's from Star Villas, met us at the local market to help us find the home and get us setup. As soon as we drove up the long and windy road up to the top of this cliff, and walked through the property to the back yard and saw the view, our jaws collectively dropped.

This is where we spent the next full month. It's hard to see in pictures just how nicely spread out this is, but it's a very nice property. A full outdoor kitchen, infinity pool, deck area, another living area, and around the house also a hammock (that got a lot of use), it's really a 180 degree view of the ocean.

Originally we intended to be very close to the ocean, and this property is about 1.5 miles away. But the views from above here are really amazing, so keep that in mind.

A few other notes:
- Diego and Adriana, the local concierge's for Star Villas took care of everything -- reservations, activities, recommendations, even an urgent dr. visit (which the hospital nearby is of the quality of a US hospital).
- The property is very quiet, relaxing.
- The house manager, cook, Giocanda was awesome. Every day she made traditional Tico breakfast, snacks, fresh juice, guacamole, and more. Would highly recommend that.
- We used a nanny or two that were recommended, Anna and Adriana, and they were fantastic with the kids, flexible, and often went with us on day trips.
- The house itself is very large accommodating our family and at one point 3 other families as well.
- There are many nearby restaurants that are great. A lot of beaches as well that are a short drive, and we tried nearly all of them.

Next time we go to Costa Rica, we'll absolutely work with this team again.
