Had an awesome vacation at the Casa Silva!! The house was even bigger than it looked in the pictures, and was professionally cleaned when we arrived. The kitchen was very well equiped and we saved alot of money by cooking at home instead of going out all the time. The house is in between Playa Del Coco and Playa Hermosa, great location, and great views of the Playa Del Coco mountainside. I would suggest renting a car as Playa Del Coco is about a 45 min walk down the hill, but a 4x4 is definetely not necessary to get to the house (all paved roads). The pool was great, and there is an outdoor shower to rinse off. Also there is another living room upstairs with a mini bar, which walks out to the upper balcony, perfect for chilling out at night. The house also has free wifi and laundry which was great. Will definitely be staying here again!!
Casa Silva is all that the description and photos promises! I was very pleased with the home, which had all the necessary items for a home away from away, as well as it being comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. The owner and caretaker were super responsive, answering all questions and alleviating any apprehensions and fears. I travelled by myself so was a little nervous about many things. I enjoyed a peaceful, safe, and fun vacation which was in great part to staying at Casa Silva. I highly recommend this well located house for convenience, peace, and great views.
My family and I had a wonderful time at Casa SIlva, Its even more beautiful in person, John is very quick to respond to any questions. And Corby the property manager is amazing and will do everything she can to make sure you enjoy your stay.
