Wow

5/5

“It isn’t often that the photos of a holiday rental live up to expectations but this one really does. VILLA VISTA is stunning! The
views hit us as soon as we walked through the door. Although we didn’t spend any time indoors, the house was beautiful and
had everything you need. We didn’t want to leave.

Overall our holiday was fantastic.”

Absolutely Amazing Property

5/5

“We had the pleasure of staying in this magnificent home on our vacation to Samara. The home is situated in a very private and gated community, which we loved. We felt safe at all times. The pool is to die for! It is also bigger than any pool that we have had the pleasure to experience in a rental property before. The layout of the home and the room configuration is perfect for all guests to enjoy privacy. The home has a major sound system that really just tops off the experience. We spent a few days just enjoying the house, the million dollar view and the beautiful ambiance of the home. Thank you Craig and Myla for letting us have the pleasure of enjoying our experience to the fullest.”

Nicest Home/View in 20 Years of Travel

5/5

“First off it is important to know we have been traveling to tropical destinations beginning with Costa Rica 20 years ago, and this home hands down is the nicest we’ve ever had the pleasure of staying at. The quality of craftsmanship, architecture, and level of finish in this home is perfectly melded. The massive folding accordion doors to the patio frame in the exterior view of the ocean, bay points, infinity pool, and island like an absolute masterpiece work of art. It is simply stunning. Comfortable beds, quiet location proximal to town and the beach, all the amenities of a gourmet kitchen, master walk in closet with ample built ins, multiple sitting areas. All this within this lovely little gated community with wildlife in the hills above and trees below the property. Craig is a man of honor and well respected by local business owners which was immediately evident in our initial interactions with him. His property manager Erin was always available and wanting to make sure we were comfortable. She even gave us a ride to town for dinner the night of our arrival.”

Insanely Beautiful!!!!

5/5

“This was our 8th trip to Costa Rica. This villa was by far the nicest we have enjoyed while there. When you walk through the front door, you are immediately overwhelmed by the views, as the back of the house literally opens up to the pool and the views. Everything in the house is high-end. This would be an excellent property for people who have never been to Costa Rica before. It is in a gated neighborhood with other similar houses nearby. The only thing that made this house better was the house manager, Erin Morano. She met us when we arrived to show us all the details of the house; she checked in with us periodically to make sure things were going well. Finally, she met us as we left to see us off on our trip to the airport. She helped
with getting our ATV for the week and had great suggestions for food and activities. She was incredible!! The owner was very
kind and gracious as well. We look forward to returning to Villa Vista. I highly recommend this property!!”

5/5

“This was the second year in a row vacationing at Villa Vista with our family. I can’t say enough good things about the overall experience from the cleanliness, comfort (the king size bed was a dream) the large pool, fully equipped kitchen and beautifully landscaped grounds. Bill Knight, the Property Manager goes out of his way to ensure you have everything you need to enjoy your vacation including arranging for excursions and rentals. Craig and Myla, the owners are always a pleasure to deal with and have created such a luxurious and comfortable home to ensure you experience the best possible vacation. I would highly recommend Villa Vista as a vacation home because you will not be disappointed and falling waking up to the stunning view will set you on the right path each morning. Thanks again Craig & Myla.”
