“Perfect house!”
Reviewed 29 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Villa Marbella was a perfect home-away from home for us. We traveled with our 7.5mo old baby and the clean lovely house with a nice and fully eqipped kitchen and the pool, were perfect features for us. The beds are comfortable, the AC was nice to have but we used the fans even more. I cant say enough nice things about the villa and the owner and staff!! I was disappointed with the quality of food available in the grocery stores and restaurants but I am a food snob and costa rica in general was not a foodie destination. If Playa Grande is where you want to vacation I dont think you could find a nicer house rental!!

“The Best Ever!!!”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This house was fantastic, it was our second time in Playa Grande and it was just great. The house is absolutely beautiful, the owners were wonderful. They were so quick to help us if we had any questions, lovely people. I didn't want to go home. The location of the house was perfect we had the best of both worlds, with the river and wildlife behind us and the beach steps away. The pool and the staff taking care of the pool and outside gardens were the best I have ever seen on a vacation, everything always looked gorgeous. I don't think I have to say anything more except that you will NOT regret renting Villa Marbella.

“Villa Marbella is AMAZING!”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The owners of this property have thought of everything. We were in the home 5 nights and had everything we needed to make meals, sleep comfortably, watch TV, listen to music, lounge around the pool and just be together.

The house is well appointed and comfortable. There were plenty of dishes and flatware for 2 families. We all had the space and privacy we needed to relax. The entire house and grounds are well kept and very pretty.

There is a trail behind the house that leads towards the estuary and Bula Bula and there is a little store and restaurant that is a quick walk out the front door. We drove to the beach everyday, but it would only be a short walk.

There are quite a few choices at Playa Grande and Marbella is the best one. We had an amazing time and the ease and comfort of the property made it all the better.

The owner, Steve, was communicative and easy to work with. His property manager, Alyssa was the same. Alyssa kept in touch with me prior to arrival then helped us get acquainted with the house once we arrived. She got me in contact with a private chef, Frank and masseuse, Margie. Both were amazing. A house keeper came after a couple of days to tidy and clean up. We live in Costa Rica and didn't need transportation and were aware of local activities, but Alyssa can help with car rentals and tours.

The photos really don't do the property justice. It is more amazing than the photos reveal. The owners, property manager and house spoiled us and I can't see any reason to stay in a hotel or anywhere else.
