Our vacation at Casa Cielo Mar was incredible. We travel to this region of CR every year and rent a house on a hill with a great view and pool. This one has to be everyone's favorite. The sweeping views of the water and mountains from every room were even better than the pictures. Kitchen was great to prepare meals and A/C works great. Very good landscaping and our favorite feature was the infinity pool. It was an unusual design with wonderful craftsmanship. Beds were so comfortable and we had so much space both indoors and out. Alonso quickly checked us in and Antonio took great care of the property each day. We cannot wait to return next year!

Was an amazing time at Villa del Sol! This property is quite nicely fitted out with tasteful updates, blazing fast wifi and an amazing a/c system. The pool is huge and the location is great. Seriously good value for the money. We will be back!

Escaping the harsh Winter of Northern Minnesota could not have been better than what Villa La Sata had to offer us. Our March 3rd trip to Playa Flamingo was just what we all needed. While the young ones loved the walkway (private) to the beach we enjoyed the infinity pool and the golf cart to Flamingo. We also enjoyed the special convenience of the main house's elevator. Villa La Sata has the most amazing kitchen and a wonderful eating Pavilion where we enjoyed part of each day reading, watching the wonderful sunsets and dinner for all. The views from every room in the house and guest house are just stunning. This is a paradise here on earth. We hope to return next year. Ralph and Dolores Wendorf

Our January 12 to the 22 stay was our second trip to Villa la Sata. We didn’t think it could get any better but this was a very special time in this extremely special place. For all our experiences here in Guanacaste this Estate cannot be matched. The village of Flamingo provides varied opportunities for dining and entertainment. Whether at Angelina’s, Coco Loco or La Forketta the food was amazing. The in home chef Jean Luc was the BEST! The beauty of the white sand beach of Flamingo is unparalleled. The staff at Villa la Sata was extremely accommodating. There was no better way to escape the cold of Montana. We will return yet again, Michael Snow

Our recent trip to Costa Rica’s Gold Coast of Playa Flamingo was our first ever. What a wonderful surprise we had pulling through the gates of Villa La Sata. WOW Better that presented on Facebook or the rental company Special Places. The kids enjoyed the private walkway to the white sand beach of Flamingo. The recommended chef was Jeanluc and was he great!! Another WOW Our private estate villa La Sata provides everything needed in the most elegant fashion. Great Beds, great showers and beautiful furnishings and what a view! We will return, The Laufenburgurs

We rented Casa Mar Vista through Special Places of Costa Rica. Our contact was Phem and she did an excellent job. She answered our many emails very promptly and in addition to booking the house, she helped us book our airport transportation, car rentals, and golf cart rentals. Everything went smoothly. The house was beautiful with an awesome view. There were a few minor issues and for those we dealt with Alfonso. He also responded very promptly and was able to have the problems taken care of. We ate at Gracia, the restaurant on site, several times. The food and drinks were very good and we had great service. We will definitely contact Special Places of Costa Rica when we are ready to book another trip to Costa Rica.

Cute little villa with all the amenities needed to have a restful and fun-filled stay. The place was immaculate!!! It has a never-ending hot shower, comfortable bed, super powerful air conditioning, all the appliances needed and great wifi! Enjoy the 2 flat screen TVs to watch after a day at one of the many pristine beaches - which seemed pretty much private during the week! I really enjoyed reading or just relaxing on the porch hammock. Being just steps away from the incredible pool was perfect. Villa del Sol is a quiet, safe place to vacation away from the stresses of life.

My wife and I stayed at Villa del Sol with another couple to celebrate our five year anniversary and had a spectacular time. It starts with the responsiveness of Special Places of Costa Rica to all questions and then the thorough welcome guide that gives advice on places to eat and things to do, which was a nice touch. We spent most mornings walking the beach and then heading back to the villa to quick shower and head out for a bite to eat. There really isn't a need for a car but we rented one for a few days to take a couple trips to Las Catalinas, Playa Conchal and other nearby beaches for a little different flavor. All the beaches were beautiful! During the week it was like we had our own private beaches -- so much fun for body surfing or just chillin with our favorite beverages. We use Phem the concierge to book a great catamaran trip on the Lazy Lizard and also took a day trip to Nicaragua which was interesting for us. Villa del Sol is 500m from the beach and well within walking distance to Playa Potrero and Playa Prieta. The nearby local restaurants were great and there is also a nice variety of places to watch the sunset. The villa itself is very comfortable, tastefully decorated and has been professionally updated with all the modern conveniences. I loved the never ending hot water shower! The pool is just magnificent and the perfect way to relax under a palapa while streaming music from the villa. So awesome to be able lounge at the pool and stay in touch with friends on Facebook -- making them all jealous!! I highly recommend staying here at Villa del Sol. We will definitely be back.

Condo is very efficient and grounds were beautiful. Villa del Sol is very close to many of the nicer beaches in the area and the restaurants were excellent. Everyone at Special Places of Costa Rica (property managemer) was kind and couldn't do enough to be helpful. We love Costa Rica and plan to return.

This property was way better than advertised for sure. The pictures did not do it justice because the property has been updated nicely with granite counter tops, a new bathroom, a wonderfully soft mattress in the master. The pool area is wonderful and the internet was awesome! We will definitely be back!

It would be tougher to spend a week in Costa Rica in a nicer home than Villa La Sata. Not only is it centrally located to the “hopping” area of the Pacific Coast side of Costa Rica, it is positioned on the property and Bay perfectly.

A view of over 180 degrees of the ocean is breathtaking. The home is beautiful, updated and unquestionably a once-in-a-lifetime vacation home.

This will go down as the nicest home we have ever spent time in, on vacation.
