Our family of 8 stayed at Hacienda Casa del Arbol for three weeks in February, 2016. Everything was truly amazing and exceeded our expectations. The home is spacious and gorgeous. We were well taken care of immediately upon our arrival by Yannick, Phem and Kenny from Special Places of Costa Rica. They helped us arrange day trips and went above and beyond to help plan for two birthday parties, mariachis and all! We quickly became family with Marleny, Eric, Grevin and Alex who are there everyday to care for all our needs. Marleny is an amazing woman and was always such a pleasure to be around. We will definitely return again and HIGHLY recommend staying there.
This house exceeded all expectations. The private residence is equipped with a full state of the art kitchen, infinity pool, hot tub, beautiful walk in showers, rooms with views to the ocean, balcony access, free wifi, 24/7 security, and a housekeeper. The house is very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. All of the closets are walk in and have plenty of space. The showers are very big and luxurious and you will feel as if you're at a five star hotel. There are two bedrooms downstairs and three upstairs. Downstairs there is also a big family room with a TV and sofas looking out to the beach. The patio is big and is furnished with a dining table with seating for 10. There is a grill outside and more sofa seating covered with shade. There are beach chairs by the beautiful pool that looks out to the beach. The beach is private and has very nice sand and clear warm water. There is beautiful grass between the beach and the pool and an outside shower to rinse off. This house was perfect and we LOVED IT! We would go back in a heart beat. We also had a private chef some nights who cooked delicious food, including fresh sushi we caught on a fishing charter. We also have some allergies in the family and he was able to accommodate those with his cooking. He brought the food, cooked it, and cleaned up. He made wonderful appetizers and tasty desserts. The house itself was very comfortable and we felt at home. The company that we rented the house through helped us get accommodations to go zip lining, white water rafting, fishing, and other tours. They also provided transportation at an extra charge. The only thing we were not happy with was the fishing charter. The trip was originally advertised with a great price for a half day and then when we were charged it was a much higher price with a very old boat. That was the only problem we had. Everything was wonderful and the house was clean. Inside the house, the views were spectacular and we took away a ton of great memories. One of the best things to do was to go down to the beach and swim on the private beach and feel relaxed. I would recommend this house to all of my friends.
