Best Costa Rica family vacation home
We didn’t want to leave our vacation home, beautiful home, fantastic home cooked meals, Costa Rica coastal beauty surrounded us!! We heard monkeys calling, watched them swing from tree to tree, iguanas sunbath on our deck and macaws flying majestically around our thick jungle views. We spent hours walking down the playa la Macha (beach) jumping the waves and sun bathing!! Our stay was classified as the best family vacation because of the wonderful staff!! Evelyn and Carmen cooked delicious meals everyday, we decided on the menu and they cooked, cleaned and washed up for us!! We all mom included feel pampered and completely rested!! Shrimp, steak fajitas, omelets, banana pancakes are just a few of our favorites!! The ladies had our laundry washed and folded by noon and Jota was incredible at assisting us in everything we needed or desired to do!! We truly feel like we were well taken care off as we explored the area, visited together and relaxed!!
This property was just perfect for our group of 14 (7 adults, 7 young children). The location (beautiful rainforest setting & views of the ocean), the delicious meals & concierge service (Jota, Evelyn & Carmen were so attentive & kind), and the home itself were all wonderful & just as described. We ate almost every meal at the home as the cooking was fresh and delicious. The pool & views from the home are unbeatable. Jota is attentive and helps with all excursions, grocery shopping, and any other logistical things that come up.
I'm not sure what the prior reviewer was complaining about, as this place is well maintained and definitely worth the trip. Internet service is somewhat spotty, but that actually turned out to be for the better as we all unplugged for a fair bit of our vacation! We would visit again tomorrow if we could!
I agree with prior reviewers that you will need a 4x4 vehicle to drive up to the home, but that isn't a problem to rent in Costa Rica.
The best part about this property is the staff and the view. Jota, Carmen and Evelyn are friendly and helpful. Jota is connected to everyone and even located my cellphone that was left in a cab. However, this house needs major TLC. The house looks nothing like the pictures. The furniture is worn and falling apart. The outdoor furniture all needs to be replaced. Where there are cushions they are soiled with body lotion stains. The house in general needs a deep clean. There are holes in the wall that need to be patched, light fixtures that are broken, ceiling fans that don't work and mold growing in various parts of the home. Bedding needs to be updated as most is frayed and falling apart. The most disappointing part is that we ran into the property owner on our way down to the beach. We voiced our concerns and disappointment with him and he deflected all responsibility. I should also mention that the home is terribly difficult to access. You need a 4x4 to get to the home which most taxis are not 4x4 in the area. The road is unkept and two taxis couldn't make it to the home so we had to walk up the steep hill to get back to the Villa. There were only 4 of us staying in the house and we have experience booking vacation homes all over the world (including Central America). This was by far the worst home condition we have stayed in. I would strongly reconsider booking this property withouth having proof of major improvments.
I have a construction crew here now working on the property, and furniture , we have been very busy with house rental and large groups of guests but this week we have taken advantage of the opportunity to work on house. I’m sorry if I didn’t handle your comments on the road well I wasn’t prepared for your negative input. your the first person that has ever complained in 7 years so saying that we are going over all of your concerns and as far as our cushions go we replaced them , as far as road goes it’s clearly everywhere on info you should use 4 by 4 if I make road smooth you will get lots of traffic to access beach and taxis we have never had a problem with taxis here. we even have big busses pick up our guest and deliver .
Our hearts are full after a week at Villa La Macha. We are a family of 14 who traveled from Colorado, Virginia, and Washington DC. Ten of us stayed at the villa and there was ample room to spread out. It was a long day getting there, but within the first few hours we saw white faced monkeys, scarlet macaws, and the resident liard, Pedro. We had a visit from lots of monkeys almost every day we were there. The house is absolutely beautiful and Jota, Carmen and Evelyn took care of our every need. Jota sat with us every morning to discuss the day's activities and menu and to point out the wildlife. He even brought in a local guitarist for a private concert/jam session with our boys who play guitar. It was so special to have our whole family together in such a magical place for Christmas. Thank you Jota, Carmen, and Evelyn for everything you did to make it so amazing. We will never forget you or the memories we made at Villa La Macha. Pura Vida!
Great Beach House with six bedrooms
Great house with great service. Jota is a very nice concierge and did a great job procuring groceries every day. He did a good job finding activities too. Trail down to the beach is 2/3 mile and very steep. Athletic adults and kids over 5 will do fine. Little kids or older/overweight adults probably won’t make it down well. View of the Pacific is stunning. Outdoor shower upstairs is really cool. Squirrel monkeys come through each afternoon around lunch. They’re cool but they’ll also come after any food inside or outside the house. Reconsider this house, and Quepos in general, if you don’t do well with humidity. The air conditioners in each bedroom work great. It’s just you and Mother Nature in the common areas.
Would Stay Again and Again
This is an amazing property and Jota, Carmen and Evelyn make you feel like family. Jota was awesome at recommending and organizing any tourist excursions as well. We spent 7 days here and would come back again. Its location cannot be beat if you are staying in Quepos although a rental car is recommended if you don't want to taxi everywhere. We had 9 people and it was plenty big enough for everyone to have their space. The pool is incredible as well. Only 4 of the 6 bedrooms have ocean views but all are very comfortable. We rarely went out to eat except lunches because the food was delicious with fresh fruit, salsa and quac every day. The 'private' beach is a serious hike down what is basically a waterfall and only available at low tide. It's worth the hike but there are many other closer beaches that are more convenient for a beach day. We spent every morning and evening on the back deck watching whales and sunsets. We would book this property again.
