We stayed in the property for a week and it was a great experience. The house is surrounded by nature and still very close to the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio.

Barry and Annie, the owners, are always available and they make you feel welcome to their property. At the same time, the unit is totally private, making you feel really at home. The house is very spacious, with an open concept and the kitchen has everything you need to cook any meal, with the nice addiction of a dishwasher and a garbage disposal.

In our case, living in San Jose, it was great to bring all our food and enjoy many dinners by the pool. And with the available washer and dryer, we didn't need to bring additional clothing and were able to return home with everything ready to be put back in the closet.
There is also plenty of entertainment available for a rainy day. There are movies, books, games, toys, a nice flat screen TV.

If you go to one of the small boutique hotels in the area offering similar services, you will end up paying twice as much and you will never get this level of comfort, privacy and sense of being at home.

We have already recommended this place to several friends.

Barry, Annie and Patricia, it was a real pleasure staying at Villa Vista Verde and we will see you next time we are in the area.

“Great times at Villa Vista Verde”

We're staying at Villa Vista Verde from June 16th - June 25. Barry picked us up from Quepos airport where we landed on our charter flight and drove us to his property. Barry and his wife Annie are very cool people who know a lot about the surrounding area.On our arrival the house was spotless and cool. The beds were comfortable, the shower was great with 2 shower heads and was big enough for 4 people, the house cools off quickly once you turn the AC on (the house is comfortable with just the ceiling fans on also).The pool and new BBQ were great when when we came home from our adventures in the late afternoon/night. The place also has dvd's just incase if you wanna stay in and watch a movie.
Barry and Annie volunteer at "Kids saving the rainforest" and is a must go attraction for all you animal lovers. My girlfriend and I had so much fun there. This sanctuary is doing really good things in preserving the wildlife here. Annie was our tour guide and has a tremendous amount of knowledge of the animals being taken care of at the sanctuary. They also drove us to and from which saved us a few bucks.

There's a trail near the house where you can take a short hike to a waterfall that you can jump off.

We didn't rent a car, but Barry has a street legal golf cart you can rent. We took the local bus and cabs for our trips which is very inexpensive. Barry also took us to the supermarket twice so we could stock our fridge.

So far we have taken the bus to Jaco twice, a Catamaran tour, Kids saving the rainforest tour, Manuel Antonio public beach (Going to the National Park today).

This property is totally what the doctor ordered. Beautiful rainforest sounds, iguanas that visit outside the pool everyday, amazing birds(Red Macaws)...etc

Tomorrow is our last full day here and we're going to relax by the pool and enjoy the house. If you want to experience an amazing vacation in Costa Rica, You should stay here at Villa Vista Verde. Barry and Annie go above and beyond to make their guests comfortable.
The housekeeper Patricia comes by 3 times a week one of those days is to clean the pool only but the other 2 times is for housekeeping if you want her to clean up. She is very nice and does an absolutely great job.

Pura Vida,

Eric and Carmen
