“Ideal house for couples seeking romance and privacy”
Reviewed 26 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

The house was perfect...beautiful, clean, comfortable and secluded but convenient to everything. Brian took wonderful care of us throughout our stay assisting us with everything from setting up our excursions to coming to jumpstart our car. We could not have been more pleased and the only regret is we couldn't stay on longer.

“Lovely stay in this jungle gem”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a lovely time staying here with our family of four. The owner was very accommodating and called us before our trip to see if we had any questions. This was so private as you couldn't see any other houses around. If you are looking to go into town a few times but would like privacy and solitude this the place for you!

“Great home in great location!”
Reviewed 13 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We spent a week at Villa Vista Verde and loved the house and the setting. It's tucked into the forest but has a nice bit of green space near the front and sides of the house which we liked for walking around and getting closer to the plants. Sitting on the back deck - both early morning and early evening - was my favorite! All you can hear are the sounds of the forest. And every morning about 6:15 the beautiful monkey troop (about 20 or 30 of them!) would visit us on their way off to who knows where! And sometimes they would return that way about 5:15 p.m. And then there are the birds and the iguanas to keep you company too. Nice pool on the back - perfect for cooling off in the evening. Three large, private bedrooms - each with their own bath. It's about 7 or 8 minutes off the main road and through a palm tree plantation. Close to Quepos, the beach and the park - and far enough away to give you a comfortable privacy. Well-stocked kitchen. Washer/dryer. TV and lots of movies and games. I miss it! I miss the monkeys! I miss hearing the sounds of the forest at night! But my memory has them locked until we can visit Villa Vista Verde again. We highly recommend it!

Liked best: Having the forest and sounds so close to us.
Liked least: Having to leave! But, if I have to pick something else, perhaps a few more chairs on the upper deck - but truly was not an issue.

“Hidden Gem in the Jungle”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The Villa Vista Verde was AMAZING! We went as a group of 4 and everything from our initial talks with Bob to meeting Bert to staying the house went super smooth. The house is in the middle of the jungle and it is so peaceful and quiet. Even though it is a bit off the road, literally (get 4 wheel drive...a must), everything you want to do from the beach to ziplining to ATVs to the local cities are close; within 25 min max! The house and pool are in excellent shape and we finally on the second to last day saw a group of titi monkeys pass by the trees! Playa Linda is a gem along with the Manuel Antonio National Park. I recommend staying at least a week. Thank you Bob and Bert!

“Feliz Navidad!”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My family of 5 traveled to Costa Rica for the first time over Christmas. I am so grateful to have stayed at the Villa Vista Verde and to have met Bob. Without him, our vacation would not gone as smoothly and we would not have experienced as much as we did. The house itself was perfect for what we were looking for. It was remote and relaxing. We grilled out on Christmas-which being from Wisconsin is unheard of :) Enjoyed cooling off by the pool, and the wildlife was bonus entertainment. The monkeys were our wake up call..they visited every morning around 6/6:30am. We had 2 to 2 dozen come through. I would definitely take any recommendations that Bob or Bert have to offer. We visited Manuel Antonio National forrest-our family didn't think paying for a guide was necessary, loved the Rainmaker park (exactly what I pictured Costa Rica being and the meal was ABSOLUTELY delicious!), enjoyed the Farmers market and shops in Quepos-espicially the coffee at Milagro and Brooklyn bakery, and the Ocean King Catamaran was a highlight! We hope to be back again for a visit.
Pura Vida!

“As good as it appears!”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our family of five just returned from our first visit to Costa Rica. Our trip concluded with a three night stay at Villa Vista Verde. We so wish we could have stayed longer. It was such a beautiful location and the home was so wonderful. We were disappointed that we didn't have a chance to meet the monkeys (my two boys watched dutifully for them), but we saw monkeys elsewhere in the area. This home had everything we needed and was such a terrific value. Since we had a limited time in the area, we were very appreciative of the all of the helpful suggestions given by the owners and property manager. We had such a wonderful time and hope we can visit again someday!! Thank you!
