Other Things to Note
The daily fee includes the cleaning and maid service performed in each room; general sweeping and care of the pool area, as well as attention to the main room.
Beautiful home in a beautiful country. The amenities in the house were state of the art and beautifully designed.
The photos don't do justification for this villa, which is much better and bigger than what's shown on the photos.
The villa is very new, its living room is huge with tall vaulted wooden ceiling, the kitchen is well equipped to make a big feast. What's the best is the n-shape layout of the villa, 4 bedrooms are at the 2 wings, each room has a big bathroom. There are 2 rooms at each wing, 1 room with a queen bed and 2 french doors facing the pool, 1 room with a king bed and 2 french doors facing the pool plus 2 french doors facing the Pacific. This is perfect for 2 families with kids (or 4 couples), each family can occupy 1 wing, have equal share of everything while keep a little bit separation.
You can see the Pacific from the pool area, however it's about 25 minute walk or 7 minute drive to the beach. The beach is long and quiet with a lot of waves, not good for swimming but great for surfing. There are at least 2 hotels at the beach, Alma hotel and Pelican hotel, you can eat in their restaurants. And farther down there is a horse stable that offers horse back riding on the beach.
The villa is also conveniently located, Manuel Antonio National Park is about 45 minute drive on the south and Jaco is about 25 minute on the north.
Our group of 2 families and 6 people had wonderful stay, thanks Mitchell for sharing your beautiful villa!
Una maravillosa casa para disfrutar unas vacaciones... muy completa, la pasamos genial. Esta full equipada ideal para 8 personas y muy privado.
Great place, and everything was as he said. Beautiful place, near from the beach and also very private!
Mitchell's house is amazing! It's even more beautiful in person than it is in the pictures. It has all the amenities you wish to find in a beach house. The location is also great, it's 10 minutes away from the beach and there are a lot of cool simple restaurants at that same distance or so.
There were only two buts.
The first one, there's no wifi.
The second one, Sandra. She's Mitchell's contact in Costa Rica and who handles all the matters during your stay. She wasn't of any help when we needed her. She didn't give full solutions regarding the internet and the cleaning service that was paid and arrange since our booking.
Besides those two details, we had a great time in Villa Contenta and satisfied our expectations.
While I understand that there was a glitch with the wifi, we did have it working previously, and there were issues with the provider. But, we are working on another source so that there will be dependable wifi going forward.
Also, please understand that cleaning service comes in once a day to service the house and the rooms. There is not a continuous cleaning service all day. If there was a misunderstanding of that, we just need to clarify that point. Thank you.
The house is beautiful! Each room is large and has a very nice bathroom - each one with different features (fixtures / closet / tub / etc). The vaulted ceilings in the great room - one above the living area and one above the kitchen - are high and impressive.
Our group of 7 felt very comfortable there. We only stayed at the property one evening, as we were coming from the south (Osa Peninsula) and leaving the country the next day (San Jose).
The neighborhood felt odd, with some presumably abandoned properties. I assume the recession is to blame for such effects on vacation properties. Despite that fact, it felt quite safe. The security team was helpful in directing us to the property with flashlights given our late arrival.
The open courtyard is fantastic. Don't expect sweeping ocean views from the pool's "infinity" edge, however, as the brush behind the property has grown since construction. We were able to make out a small sliver of ocean between the branches of a tree.
Mitchell was kind and helpful with directions, advice, and scheduling. We would definitely return again!
Travel is so very interesting. Visiting Costa Rica years ago, I became connected with the development of the Del Pacifico neighborhood in Esterillios Este. This four bedroom home with pool, was built to be a secluded place for visitors to stay, respect and enjoy the amenities and what offerings available in this area of the country. The house and its location are excellent as a base to see the attractions and activities of the Pacific area.
