What an amazing place - we had such a great time in Raj's Villa!!! We stayed there the last week of our 3 week adventure in Costa Rica and it was the most beautiful and relaxing place to stay. The villa is even more beautiful than the pictures! There is a grocery store just down the road, beautiful beaches close by. Raj was very helpful in advance of our arrival with great tips and advice. We would definitely come back!!!
We had a wonderful time in this very beautiful Villa. The pool and especially the view are spectacular and we enjoyed every single minute. We cooked and barbecued outside and went to the nearby beach. It was a Perfect time in a Perfect surrounding.
Our stay in Puntarenas was just fabulous! This was our first time to Costa Rica - what a beautiful country! Raj was great! He provided so much information up front, we knew exactly what to bring and how things would work. Any question I asked, Raj answered quickly, I mean within minutes! I can't even describe how great the home in Roma Del Mar is. The view you see in Raj's picture is what you see from the entire house! It is amazing. The pictures you see of the home on Airbnb do not do it justice. It is incredible! Make sure when planning the adventures on your trip, you build in time to stay at the villa. Roads are not great, so it takes a lot of time getting from place to place. Rest up and enjoy the beauty of the villa some of your stay. Take advantage of the personal dinners provided by Adrian and Arlene - we were too late to schedule but heard rave reviews from others who were able to take advantage. Also, make sure the airport gives you a 4 wheel drive vehicle, you need it to get up the driveway! My suggestion, let Arlene make the arrangements for you because the car rentals sometimes don't honor your reservations....
We had an amazing time in Costa Rica, and Raj's palace was the best possible place to stay. Convenient market one minute away with food and booze, multiple beaches close by, very helpful staff, amazing home with mind blowing view, surrounded by nature and animals, safe, music speakers wired in every room and backyard, great place for watching movies... the list could go on and on but you'll just have to go see it for yourself..!!
The entire experience was wonderful! Raj's instructions and suggestions were spot on! Everything from his very helpful specific directions to the house to his info about things to do and places to see. The house, view and people involved were great and everything was exactly as he described. We were so happy to get to spend our vacation here relaxing and would certainly look forward to going back.
Raj's home was even more beautiful then the pictures he posted! The view was by far the most magical we saw during our 2 week tour around parts of Costa Rica, the pool overlooking the ocean was breathtaking and I had my morning coffee in the rocking chair while staring out at the water. The pool and deck and inside the home were very clean and it was helpful to have lots of towels. However I have to warn travellers if you have an aversion to creepy crawlers you may have a hard time in Costa Rica! We were ok with them, there were ants and we took pictures of the cooler bugs like little lizards, giant beetles, praying mantis. I'm only putting this in my review because my son had a hard time with the bugs, my daughter loved them. Most of them disappeared after we put the air conditioning on.
The 2 bedrooms were large and lovely and the kitchen was fully equipped.
Also we drove to Playa Blanco (beach) about 10 minutes away and it was absolutely beautiful with clean soft sand! And we stopped on the way in the car to watch some monkeys we spotted!
The people who met us and came over were very nice and helpful.
Raj was very helpful sending us so much info by email! We included a lot of areas/tours/shopping advice in our trip courtesy of Raj and we really appreciated all his help. Thank you Raj for opening your home to us!
The Villa was amazing! Pictures do not do it justice, and we had a great time in Costa Rica for our honeymoon. A 4x4 is definitely required, and the next time we go we'll probably get a bigger 4x4 as we rented a Compact SUV, and it struggled in the rain a bit. We arrived at night, but the villa was very easy to locate from the ferry (about 5 min away). The property manager was up waiting for us, and she was incredibly helpful and friendly. The views are wonderful from the villa, and it feels very remote and private. It's also in a great location, and we enjoyed taking day trips (no more than 1.5 hours away) to various beach towns around the Nicoya Peninsula. We loved everything about this vacation home, and we would love to go back again! Thank you, Raj for letting us stay in your beautiful villa!
We love being in Costa Rica and enjoy beautiful views, Infiniti pool and many beaches (website hidden) is very safe, people are friendly; love hiking, volcanoes, zip lines, monkeys, and fresh fruit/fish.
