We stayed at Vista Encantada. We arrived late and Kelley was there to take us to the property. Kelley was very friendly and helpful. The house was beautiful, clean and had amazing views! The beds were very comfortable and a private bath in every room. It was great to have a washer and dryer to wash out clothes after traveling for a week. The house is located up a rocky, dirt road so a 4x4 is a must!!! Location is close to many activities and beaches.Kelley was very accommodating and helpful! We would definitely stay there again.
There were 7 adults in the party. The description of the main villa was incorrect, as it is a 3 bed villa with the fourth and fifth bedrooms being in a guesthouse.
The villa had beautiful views over the coast and rainforest and an infinity pool. The pool area was large, but did not have adequate sun-loungers, as one of the 3 had perished in the sun, leaving us with 2 for the 7 of us for whole of the holiday. The outside seating area was lovely and had a couple of BBQ’s during our stay. The sunroof had no facilities on it to watch the sunset.
Inside there were TWO en-suite bedrooms, the third having a separate shower room only. This bedroom did not have any wardrobe area for garment hanging. None of the rooms had curtains and there was no obscured glass in the bath/toilet areas, although we are all friends, there are certain things that we don’t want to see of each other!
The living area was large & spacious, the kitchen area had a great large fridge freezer, with ice making facilities and a separate large wine cooler. The dishwasher was not secured and inadequate supply of dishwasher tablets, and some of the basic kitchen facilities were missing too. We were not supplied with toilet tissue as per the website.
There was a great washing machine, and tumble dryer, but did not have the advertised airer. There was also no iron or hair dryers, until requested. there was no ironing board either. The safe did not function and the fly screens on some door were broken and not fixed until 3 days before we left.
Access to the guesthouse was down a steep driveway or steps, which did not have a handrail for support, This would not suit people with joint problems and seemed unsafe. The lighting down the driveway was not functioning adequately and was repaired after requesting. The downstairs room had an open plan living/bed area, with TV, toilet and washing machine, and smelt badly of mildew. The upstairs area had a large comfy bed, but no wardrobe and had to drape garments over the sofa bed. The small kitchen had a large cooker (not used) and fridge freezer. This had NO kettle and only 1 adult size and 1 child size mugs, so had to use the microwave for the morning coffee. The aircon unit was not working properly and was repaired once requested. There was no bath, but a quirky wall tiled shower, which was a bit fierce on sunkissed skin. This room also smelt BADLY of mildew/must It was not possible to keep doors open whilst occupied, as there was not fly/mesh barrier to stop bugs entering the room. A dehumidifier was provided after request, which lessened this odour by the end of the holiday, but did not resolve the issue.
We had a fantastic stay at Vista Encantada! The pictures can't show how impressive the view from this house is! This villa located at 250 meters above the sea levels is surround by nature and jungle! There is nearly no visible neighbors, making the place really private, and we loved it! A few minutes away, there is a big waterfall where you can swim! In the area, we saw lots of life : animal, bird, insect. It was just incredible!
The house has 3 big bedrooms all with king beds and private bathrooms. There is also an additional sofa if you need it. The kitchen is well equipped, the living room is huge and Internet/TV were working very well. A water filter was making the water drinkable for us, which was really convenient.
Only a small note to let you know that the road to reach the house climbs a lot, and it is made out of dirt. I feel that a 4x4 car is pretty necessary to get there without too much pain.
Beautiful property in a lovely quiet location. A perfect place to start our honeymoon. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer!!
The home was beautiful with amazing views. We arrived at night and spent 30 minutes trying to find the guesthouse . I assumed it was next to the main house . It is 150 steps down a ravine so very secluded, something to keep in mind if you want to be close together. The pool was wonderful . It takes about 15 minutes to reach Dominical . We enjoyed being able to drive to the small towns and 30 minutes to Manuel Antonio then returning to peace and quiet at the Casa. A true paradise . We had toucans visit very early in the morning everyday but did not see or hear monkeys . There was no house phone during our visit . We could not make any local calls so it was hard to confirm tours or call Kelley.We communicated with her via internet .
Casa Tanglewood was peaceful , beautiful , clean, modern and we would definitely stay there again .
