“Two Months in Paradise”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed for two months at Casa Loma, staying in Villa 103 and Villa 203. Both casitas are spacious, furnished in CR decor and have wonderful breezes blowing through the units. We arrived mid January and needed no air conditioning until about March 5, using only overhead fans.103 is a huge unit with a wonderful outdoor living area to entertain friends, watch sunsets and enjoy the view. 203 is a bit smaller but also has beautiful views of Potrero and Flamingo Bays and overlooks the upper level pool. There is plenty of storage for clothing, groceries, etc. The units are well equipped with small appliances, dishes and a selection of glassware. After renting at various places for a number of years, I bring a skillet or two of my own, since I won't used badly scratched teflon pans. Most of the pans are scratched teflon but I believe each of the units also had a plain metal pan or two. The grounds are beautifully manicured with plenty of foliage and palm trees that are large enough for shade against the strong sun. The upper pool is the focal point of activity and can at times be crowded and noisy. Fortunately there are areas a bit away from the pool area that seem to be more quiet. If this pool becomes too crowded, walk the steps or drive to the lower pool which is lovely, has a large shaded area....this pool can be an oasis of calm. We loved our stay here and consider Tom and Igor to be wonderful hosts and now friends, too. Our ONLY negative is the fact that the villas are too far from the beach for our liking. We enjoy walking on the beach in the very early morning and this wasn't happening for us due to the distance. The views are stunning, the breezes are cool, everything's else is perfect.

Hola Larry & Debby! We wish we could offer you a beachfront Villa for your next stay here in Flamingo, but it is just not feasible... We certainly enjoyed your visit here in 2016 and look forward to your return to the area next season.
Thanks for your kind words about the facilities here and the gardens, etc.... You will be rewarded to know that we have finally managed to find some frying pans with ceramic bottoms, so hope we will not have any more problems with scratched Teflon. (We've been looking for this type of fry pan for years and finally found some in the area!)
Currently, we are winding down from the "High Season" and are finding time to do some serious garden maintenance... (Always something to do here in our little corner of Paradise!)
To date, the new marina has not started construction yet, but we are just about holding our breath for it now! It will be a major addition to the infrastructure of the entire area, and will give us something new to watch from our hillside location over Potrero Bay.
Looking forward to seeing you next year here in our little corner of Paradise! ... PURA VIDA! Tom and Igor

“Wow these reviews are so true!!!”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We are a family of 5 from Toronto and just spent a spent a week in Costa Rica for the first time. We are happy to confirm with what has been said that this place is paradise! It is located at Playa Flamingo with stunning ocean and mountain views. In the morning you will wake up with the beautiful scenery, sunshine, and sounds of the wildlife i.e. birds and monkeys! The villas are large, gorgeous, clean and have a complete kitchen On the property are two lovely swimming pools. Flamingo beach and the beaches nearby are clean and stunning right out of a post card!. The nearest beach is only a 5 minute walk away. The location of the villas is an ideal base to explore Costa Rica, with hot and sunny weather during the dry season. The hosts Igor and Tom are delightful. They are extremely friendly and helpful from the time you make a reservation right until check out. Kudos to them for building this place of paradise! We give Villas Casa Loma our highest recommendation!!

It was a great pleasure to have you all staying with us here in our little corner of Paradise ! We thoroughly enjoyed you all and the fact that you were able to squeeze so much enjoyment from your visit, too. As you were able to see, the beaches here all have their own special "character", which makes it a really exciting experience to visit and compare them. So glad, too, that you were able to experience some of the excellent local restaurants - as well as to sample a variety of unique and special tours available here. (Next time we hope that you will also see some crocodiles, along with the other wildlife that you witnessed.) We most certainly look forward to seeing you all again one day soon ... and don't forget to bring your senses of adventure and humour with you once more ! As you have discovered, it really pays off ! Pura Vida ! Tom and Igor

It was a delight to have you all with us here! 3 couples with 3 children travelling together can be stressful, but you all managed brilliantly! We were delighted, too, that you all were able to take advantage of some of the amenities and activities that are available here. ( "So much to do! So little time to do it in!" ) ... We were fortunate to be able to have the other members of your wedding party staying here, too. (A little flexiblility was all that was needed.) ... We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the ant situation in the kitchen. They are - unfortunately - a fact of life from time to time here in the tropics, even with our best efforts to control them. Your comment, though, is well-taken and we will be even more dilligent in the future... Thank you, Mark, for taking the time to send your Review, and thank you, too, for selecting VILLAS CASA LOMA as a destination for the wedding celebrations! We trust that you had a memorable stay and look forward to the possibility of your returning one day... PURA VIDA! ... Tom Graydon

“A Beautiful, Serene Property!”
Reviewed 2 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

I highly recommend Villas Casa Loma. We were six adults (including two 20-something couples) and the set-up was perfect: 2 bedrooms have separate entrances on the first level, and one is off of the large living space where we could all "hang out together" on the main level. It is even more beautiful than the photos. The Living/dining room are very spacious and the veranda is huge (yet laid-out in a way that creates cozy spaces). The views are spectacular! I felt as if we were on the coast of Spain or Italy, but without the buildup and population. Tom, the owner, is warm, friendly and extremely helpful. He made our experience even better because it was our first time to Costa Rica and there are always so many things one doesn't know in a new country. Tom was always helpful and gave us great recommendations. The pool area is spectacular: a large, beautiful pool surrounded by gorgeous tropical plants. We loved this villa and will come back again. The grace and charm of the villa and the property were heavenly! I highly recommend it.

Thank you so much for your kind review, Christine! The staff and I certainly enjoyed your company on the rare occasion when you were not out exploring and sampling the myriad of experiences that our area offers. Your week was certainly filled to overflowing with activities of all kinds, from zip lining to quad tours, etc. etc.! You all certainly "discovered" some of the best secrets of the Gold Coast in Costa Rica: Great restaurants, multiple land and water activities, beautiful beaches, touring or just doing nothing at all but lying in the shade by the pool or on your private terrace, reading or experiencing nature at its finest You will find that there are many more fascinating things to see and do here ,,, A lifetime is not long enough! That's why we say: "COSTA RICA - NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS" It is always such a treat to have interesting - and interested - guests sharing our little corner of Paradise. Happy Trails to you all! We look forward to seeing you again ... PURA VIDA!
