We stayed in this villa in Puntarenas for two weeks July / August '17 and have never felt better looked after. The villa is stunning, the best we have ever stayed in! The house keeper, Teresita, looked after us like family, cooking, cleaning, booking cabs and even giving my husband some Vicks to soothe his cold! Teresita managed to do all this, whilst remaining very unobtrusive, not invading on our privacy at all. The owners arranged for Dimas, a local tour guide, to pick us up from the airport and he also arranged tours for us at very reasonable cost. He speaks great English and was wonderfully knowledgable of the surrounding area, everyone seemed to know and respect him. Puntarenas is very well placed to visit other places of interest, so we divided our time between chilling in the villa / spending time in the pool, and visits to see the monkeys (the closest you will ever get), a rainforest (Monteverde), snorkelling, Tortuga Island (white sand beach) and a Jungle River Tour. The owners of the villa, Cabell and Marta, communicated with us really well, from the initial enquiry, throughout the booking process and even ringing during our stay to ensure all was well. We initially had some concerns about visiting during the rainy season, but need not have done, Puntarenas appeared to be warmer and drier than other parts of the country and it only rained some evenings when we were there. The local restaurants, bars and our neighbours were all very friendly. We would love to return to Costa Rica, and we would choose this villa every time!
