My husband and I stayed at Casa Fiesta the first week of March this year. The house sits high above the sea and in order to get there, you have to drive quite a ways up a dusty road. To make our first trip up, the caretaker, Diego, met us in the town of Playa Potrero and we followed him up to the house.
On arrival, Diego gave us the tour of the house, which far exceeded our expectations! The photos did not do the house justice. Everything was so clean and welcoming (especially Diego!) and the views amazing. The drive up was well worth it to wake up to those views each day!
The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to create some wonderful dinners - eating outside on the upper deck overlooking the pool was heavenly! And the pool? Wow. Wow. Wow. So beautiful. Diego was out there every morning cleaning off the deck and the pool (even though it was crazy windy and his attempts were always thwarted). He and his wife, Jennifer, take such great care of the house and the guests. We felt so welcome and relaxed the whole time.
We were also so grateful to have Diego provide us with some wonderful ideas for local restaurants and take us on a wonderful day trip that included a river boat tour where we got up close and personal with white-faced monkeys! So much fun.
We were sad to leave! Highly recommend a visit to Casa Fiesta!

Our stay casa fiesta was excellent. The view was outstanding and the house had every thing we needed to make our say comfortable. This was especially important with two young small children, ages five and one. All of these amenities allowed us to have a great family vacation. We even had one of the caretaker's parents come over and cook for us, and it turned out to be the best meal of our entire trip. Furthermore, the caretakers on the property Were on hand to answer questions, give advice, or directions whenever we needed. The house also comes equipped with a cell phone, grill hammock, and really anything anyone would be to make their stay comfortable just like it was their own home.
The house and property managers - Diego and Jennifer were great. Diego took us a few destination tours like the national park boat tour, zip lining and gave us tons of information for local out of the way beaches that we spent every afternoon at.
With my wife and 4 teenagers we found lot's to do. By the 7th day the drive to the house from town was starting to wear on us a bit as it is steep and rough roads, but as soon as you got to the house you forget about the drive as the view are incredible.
Costa Rica needs to be explored and not vacationed at a resort. The country is safe and people friendly tour it and enjoy.
