We had the pleasure of staying two nights with Rita and Steve during our stay in Costa Rica. We arrived late, but were picked up by their driver at the airport. Once we arrived, we found our room, the Mariposa, to be spacious and comfortable. After a lovely breakfast prepared by Rita the next morning, we left for a day... More

We used Casa Bella Rita as a place to spend the night near the airport upon our arrival to San Jose and the night before we departed Costa Rica. Rita and Steve are very gracious hosts. It was my birthday and I had heard that Steve was a great chef. We asked if he could prepare a special birthday dinner... More

Wow! What an awesome, quaint place to stay. We stayed here one night before our plane departed and are so glad we did. It was such a nice change from being in a hotel. We got there around 4:00 and immediately began enjoying cocktails while enjoying the view. We had such a good time talking with Rita and quizzing her... More

We were a bit of a surprise for Rita, having needed last minute lodging when a volcanic eruption postponed our flight home. Rita didn't miss a beat--she helped us make plans for additional excursions and used her contacts to make our adventures run smoothly! She and Steve had plenty of cold beer on hand for that first afternoon, and we... More

This was our family's first experience staying in a B&B. I wasn't sure if we'd all feel comfortable staying in someone else's home, but we did and in fact we all loved our stay. The house is large enough, and Steve and Rita are so welcoming and laid back, that we never felt that we were in their space or... More

What a beautiful, tranquil and comfortable casa with a fantastic view. My husband and I stayed for four nights in February, 2015 in the beautiful and accommodating Mariposa room and it is the best b&b we have stayed at. The owners, Rita and Steve, go above and beyond for their guests, and their services were greatly appreciated by us. We... More

We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica before our flight home. As soon as we arrived we felt right at home. Rita and Steve were very welcoming, the house is beautiful as was our room and I loved snuggling with their 3 dogs. Steve made us an awesome Mexican dinner complete with margueritas so we didn't have... More

Casa BellaRita is a truly unique. The home was built as a Bed & Breakfast. As such, it has sleeping rooms that are nicely accommodating and an open great room with a patio by the pool where you can relax and enjoy the view of the valley below and two volcanoes nearby. Steve and Rita, the owners, live in the... More

Still our favorite B&B -- in the world! This was our second time staying with Steve & Rita! Last time was years ago and we have to say it was as great as the first time. Every detail is taken care of; from airport pick-up (their drivers are friendly and reliable), assistance with all plans during our stay (golf, massages,... More

San Jose is notoriously terrible, so it seemed like a miracle to find this gorgeous place hanging off the side of a ravine just half an hour from the airport. It's a terrific jumping off point for travel deeper into Costa Rica, or as a base to explore around the San Jose area. (Coffee and chocolate tours, the Toucan Rescue... More
