Thanks so much for taking your time to review the villa and staff. Reviews are so important. We are all happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and that you explored the area while you were here. It's a beautiful part of the country. Having Salomon Market and Butcher Shop and the gas station within walking distance has certainly added to the convenience but thankfully the villa is well off the road so isn't impacted by noise, etc. The present owner of the villa has been making repairs and improvements since he purchased it (recently), and I appreciate hearing your comments about what we could do to make it more comfortable. I will forward your review to him so he can decide what next needs upgrading. By the way, Mancha and Raya love it when our guests are "dog people" and hate it when our guests aren't and we have to confine them. They'd love to see you again:)

We stayed in this house for 4 nights and 5 days and it was absolutely lovely. We loved the open air feel of the house and the nicely stocked kitchen were absolute highlights!!! Nana and Geronimo were very helpful. We arranged to have Nana prepare a traditional meal of beans/ric…

Our family of 7 really enjoyed staying here. The house is gorgeous and the view is unbeatable. To wake up and open the doors to your room and see the waves crashing over the cliffs is how every morning starts here. The rooms are very nicely spaced out so you feel like you have pr…

So glad you all enjoyed the villa and the caretakers. After reading your review, I was a little surprised. I thought I'd gone to great lengths to make sure your stay was good, from the first of our numerous messages to the last, even ordering, paying for and having three pizzas delivered one night on very short notice. I sent a man several times to try to figure out what was the problem with the toilet. He has since rebuilt it entirely. Though it would be ideal if I could answer every message sent to me via email within the half hour, it isn't possible. For one thing, Internet service in this part of the country can be a bit fickle at times. When you emailed about water somewhere, a message I didn't fully understand, I didn't get the email for hours! Of course I, and the owner, care if you have an issue that needs immediate attention. That is one of the reasons we have caretakers on site 24/7. So that they can try to deal with problems as they arise, or call me if they can't. I am reachable by telephone 24/7. Take care. Cindy

Cindy was very easy to work with and she was very helpful! She arranged our transportation to and from the airport, and also arranged a cook for us. She ways had a smile on her face and was very easy to communicate with! We appreciated everything she did for us and our family.

Thank you so much. It was a pleasure to meet all of you. Although there is a big, wide world waiting to be explored, it would be great to see all of you again one day.

My two children and I were looking for a long weekend of relaxation and reconnection, after a period of hard work and not a lot of family downtime. We found exactly what we were looking for at this property and thanks to Cindy's excellent hosting skills. She did a wonderful job o…

So glad to know that you and the kids, and the pooch, "loved the peace and tranquility. The views. The sound of waves crashing. The coconut trees rustling." The owner has worked very hard to make the villa comfortable and inviting and will be very happy to know you enjoyed your stay so much. See you again soon?

We know there are a lot of choices for places to stay in the area, but isn't this a wonderful villa?! We're so glad you decided to stay, and I know you are, too. We hope to see you both again one day.

Cindy, really. No one calls me Cynthia. My life motto, which seems to work MOST of the time: Que el viento se lleve tus problemas. (Let the wind take your troubles away.) I'm fairly well-traveled and had never stayed in the same place for more than 2 or 3 days during any o…
