“A GEM IN THE JUNGLE ...”
Reviewed 19 October 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The beauty of nature is all around you. You can not miss it! Lush tropical gardens. Huge covered and open terraces. Gorgeous pool. A natural oasis in the surrounding tropical dry forest - within minutes of the Pacific Ocean.
We recommend renting a car to increase enjoyment of the many wonderful restaurants, amenities and beaches of the area. There is ample secure parking.
Our hosts were helpful in planning day trips and pointing out interesting things to see and do in the area. The Spanish speaking staff were always smiling and happily enthusiastic.
"The Jungle House" consists of a huge, sun-flooded apartment with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 ensuites). Each of the bedrooms opens onto private terraces.
The large third bedroom with ensuite bath is situated on the main (entry) level, is ideal for use as an extra bedroom or office.
The huge open concept gourmet kitchen on the upper level has granite counters and loads of storage space. The adjacent living room has an unprecedented view of the private wraparound terrace, tropical gardens and huge spa-like swimming pool. A large wet bar/covered gazebo by the pool made for ideal al fresco entertaining for us.
Villas Casa Loma offered us a magical, peaceful holiday just minutes from everything, but secluded and private! A unique mini-estate offering multiple level terraces and comfortable amenities.
Overall a super holiday location!

We are delighted that your extended family had such a good time with us at Villas Casa Loma. You will be pleased to know that there are several new restaurants in the immediate area - most of which serve fresh seafood delicacies to satisfy the most demanding palate. Add to that "event night" activities and you have special memories in the making! (Our area is blessed with a broad range of entertainers, singers, musicians who appear frequently at area bars and restaurants. We are always delighted to bring our guests up to date on upcoming events and to assist in planning day trips of interest!) Add to that picturesque beaches, hills and enchanting scenery just a breath away. A wealth of wildlife - such as butterflies, coatimundi, deer, monkeys, parrots and birds of all kinds reside in the adjacent tropical dry forest...The nearby ocean offers endless opportunities for whale, dolphin and turtle watching, too! Bring your camera! Canopy tours, enchanting river cruises, sailing, fishing, golf and tennis are all available mere minutes from our property. There are always a wealth of activities, sights and sounds to enchant and delight your senses! Costa Rica: No artificial ingredients!! PIURA VIDA! Tom and Igor

Thank you so much for your kind Review ! It is always rewarding to be able to offer a memorable stay here in our little corner of Paradise ! Your comments are very much appreciated ! We hope that you will be pleasantly surprised at the recent changes we have made to the gardens - mainly clearing out some of the palm tree overgrowth in order to open up the vistas of the ocean, etc. ... Always a labour of love on our side that will hopefully pay off in appreciation from our guests ... The wildlife here is flourishing, as are Lorita - our talking, singing Amazon parrot - and her other parrot friends ! We are doing our level best to safeguard our furry and feathered friends here ... preserving our many hectares of private preserve for future generations, too. We look forward to your return to our little corner of Paradise and again thank you for your recent visit and encouraging words. PURA VIDA ! Tom and Igor Villas Casa Loma

Hola Jose!
Thank you for your comments. We were very happy to have you visiting us at VILLAS CASA LOMA . However, the visit was too short! We did not really get much opportunity to intereact with you all because of the shortness of your stay and the activities of your family... Perhaps next time we will be able to share some "quality time" with you all.

The home made Focaccia was positively wonderful ! Thank you for it. Both Tom and I consumed it just minutes after you had all left. It was soo good that we have added it to our boca menu for sharing with friends.

We were very pleased that you found the accommodations comfortable for your group and trust that we will have the opportunity to share our little corner of Paradise with you again one day soon. It is - for us - a great pleasure to be able to share this magic setting with so many Ticos, as well as other latinos and gringos. This is truly a magic place in a very magic country. We are grateful to be here and have the chance to share it with you.

Come back soon. We will be waiting. In the meantime, be well and happy. PURA VIDA ! Tom and Igor
