Guestbook comments from the owner

We all arrived back in USA safely, exhilarated and highly contented from our week at your fabulous villa in Playa Ocotal. I’m sure you get accolades by the hundreds, but please let us add ours as well. The villa is beautiful and wonderfully functional with a view that is stunning. However, the feature that compliments the physical attributes of the villa and makes the total experience” world class” is your amazing staff. I could write a book about each of them and all the special things they did to enhance our stay, but in the interest of brevity, let me just say that they were “the very best” and we parted them as special friends in addition to their being our attentive wait staff. Everyone in our group also enjoyed the four additional .Each activity exceeded our expectations and were perfect extensions to the total Villa Estrella experience. If I may ever be of service to you as a reference or in any other capacity please let me know.

"Natural" elegance!

  • 5 of 5

This paradise, with a spectacular panoramic view of the water and mountains, brought nature and elegance together. The staff, from the moment of our arrival, made the experience one which will never be forgotten. I have called our stay an experience, because it was. We were transported to the Villa by Blair, a kind, warm and considerate gentleman. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the staff and made to feel special from the moment we exited the vehicle.

Mich, made sure that everyone in our group “stayed happy”! He was attentive to our needs and wants – from the youngest to the “most mature” of our group. He was the ultimate “host”. Nothing was a bother and all was “okay”, from ensuring that our special requests were satisfied to making sure the fish that was caught was prepared, immediately, and served as our afternoon snack! He is a proud professional, as well as a caring person.

Our chefs, Victor and Alberto could not have been more accomplished or considerate of our tastes and ages. Kudos!

The villa was impeccably clean. Thank you Marlene and Ana for everything you did! You made us feel comfortable and welcome!

Diego, thank you for checking on us everyday! You took time, in your busy day, to offer help and guidance.

Robyn, we thank you for understanding our needing to change our dates! Thank you for being so accommodating and for sharing your home with us! You opened your home and your staff opened their hearts and their arms!

Pura Vida!

This was the best vacation I have ever taken. I love to go on trips and adventures so Costa Rica was a great place for me to get some R&R while also being active. There were activities to accommodate everyone in our group - from those who wanted the most action to those that wanted to chill out by the pool, Villa Estrella had something for everyone.

The staff at Villa Estrella was outstanding. From the driver who picked us up to the bartender, kitchen staff, housecleaning crew, and "cruise director," every person at the villa went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was nothing short of perfection. The food was to die for, the drinks were excellent and the house was gorgeous.

I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone who is looking to unplug, relax and enjoy the spirit of pura vida. I can't wait to plan my trip back to Villa Estrella!

Villa Estrella - 10/10!

  • 5 of 5

From the very moment I arrived, I knew this was going to be a vacation of an entirely different caliber. As soon as I arrived at the villa, a drink was right there waiting. The food was unbelievable, and all the staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and just plain fun to be around. Programming is top notch as well. Absolutely would recommend this place to anyone.

Beyond Expectationa!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I was apprehensive about renting a property, in another country, from a complete stranger. I trusted my gut instinct and decided to just go for it after speaking to Robyn on the phone. I had read the reviews and had high hopes. But, when the driver, Blair, approached the house and the entire staff stood outside to greet us, I knew we were in a special place and that my expectations would be exceeded. When our group of 16 saw the view, we were all speechless. There are no words. The amazing pictures do not do it justice. The staff is friendly, so helpful and you truly have nothing to worry about all week. Somehow, though, they are always in the background and never invasive. The home has an open air feel to it. The pool is perfect for large groups and drinking margarita mojitos on a float. The food is 5 star. We had guests that don't typically eat healthy food and they were inspired to start because it was so delicious! The drinks were fresh and never made from a mix. Whenever we returned from an excursion, we were greeted with cold towels and fruity drinks! We enjoyed the sunset catamaran and even saw whales! We went on a river safari, went ziplining and took mud baths. Yeah. Best vacation EVER! I would recommend this house to anyone and everyone. Worth every penny and when it's said and done, it's a great value. Just leave some weeks on the calendar for us to book! :)

Car: recommended

The views from Villa Estrella are absolutely breathtaking. From its hilltop position, guests look out west and north over the warm blue waters of the Gulf of Papagayo and the coastal peninsula on which the Four Seasons Resort is located. Look directly down at the Beach of Ocotal and you'll see the fishing and scuba charters pick up their passengers in the early morning and return in the mid-afternoon. To the east and south, enjoy the incredible views of volcanic mountains and nearby jungles.

Villa Estrella is perfectly situated for guests to enjoy swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing in the pristine waters of the Gulf of Papagayo. Centrally located in the Guanacaste region, guests can also easily venture out each day in different directions to experience the various pleasures of jungle canopy tours, mud baths, horseback riding, and beaches
