Gorgeous location, wonderful hospitality
While everything else in this area seems imposed upon the landscape -- brutalist condo buildings and impersonal hotels -- Tom and Igor's place, built 30 years ago when the area was still undeveloped -- puts local materials and a local sensibility to spectacular ends. It's the best of both worlds, combining magnificent views of mountains and sea with an intimate sense of being in a secret garden. Nowhere else do you see such dense, nurtured, well-loved and well-landscaped tropical plantings, watered every single day by members of Tom and Igor's loyal, consistent staff. This was our fourth visit to the Villas, and we have already reserved our rooms for next year. Two immaculate pools, one completely private and the other surrounded by cascading bougainvillea, are provided for guests who decide to spend their days on the property; but within five, ten or twenty minutes are a selection of heartbreakingly beautiful beaches. The place is convenient to many restaurants (I particularly recommend A lo Nico) and also to surf shops and resorts that can provide all the usual beach adventures and entertainments. Finally, Tom and Igor are the best hosts I have ever known. They are immediately responsive, warm and thoroughly companionable; and they have gone above and beyond the call of duty two or three times to rescue us from problems, including some of our own making. I cannot say enough about the magical place they have created and maintained for all these years.
Thank you for your thoughtful Review, Linda. You make it all worthwhile!!
30 years and still going strong!
Every one of our accommodations was designed and built with an eye to comfort dictated by weather conditions. We are delighted to hear that it has, apparently, worked.
Spectacular views, convenience to good shops and the finest restaurants, wonderful beaches and related activities are but a few of the delights to be found here.
Mornings and evenings are often a special time here in our little corner of Paradise: Birds of all sizes and colors and tropical wildlife abound - especially in the early and late parts of the day.
We pride ourselves on paying tribute to the topography as well as the weather conditions that we were fortunate enough to find when we first arrived here. We did not arrive with the arrogant notion of "taming" nature, but rather to complimenting it. Natural materials - including local natural stone and tropical woods - are used wherever possible in the many retaining walls and in the construction of of each of our Villas. Great care was taken to create "quiet areas". Walls of glass are judiciously incorporated into the buildings to permit endless beautiful views . All of this has been done in a conscious effort to create a soft, quiet and gentle environment in which to rest, entertain and socialize.
We're looking forward to your sixth visit next year! Costa Rica is missing you !
PURA VIDA!! Tom and Igor
Paradise with a View
We spent two months at Casa Loma for nine delightful weeks and were spoiled by the apartment, the view and our hosts Tom and Igor. The apartment was clean and very well appointed. Tom and Igor looked after every detail and were available every day even just to say good morning. We loved the pool, the immaculate grounds, the other guests but most of all the view. Looking out over Flamingo and the Pacific Ocean every day spoiled us for other locations. Thanks Tom and Igor, we will be back. Pura Vida!
Wonderful guests make for wonderful memories! Thanks so much for your visit here to our little corner of Paradise! We only wish that it could have been for a longer period!!
Sitting high above the Pacific Ocean ensures lots of spectacular vistas, and we are certainly not shy of views! Sitting by one of the pools under palm trees, watching nature, the stars and sky is always a special treat.
It's fun to join friends and visit a variety of excellent restaurants, bars, and shops in the area - or to simply explore the gentle countryside.
Nature is always just a glance away. We recently were visited by a small flock of colourful parrots and it is a common daily occurrence to site a wide variety of birds and even little foxes, coatimundi, deer, manigordos and other animals of the forest roaming our private adjoining preserve.
For our more active guests, there is sailing, fishing, surfing, stand up paddle, white water rafting, golf, tennis and of course swimming.
Have a taste for exploring and adventure? Try nearby waterfalls, extinct volcanos, horseback cross country rides, mud baths and jungle tours to name but a few activities readily available in our immediate area.
We pride ourselves in being able to offer so many activities - all in a gentle, quiet and convenient setting! We are looking forward to your return to our little corner of Paradise.
COSTA RICA IS MISSING YOU, Jim & Elaine!
PURA VIDA! Tom and Igor
Igor and Tom are just wonderful both were such a pleasure to meet. Can’t wait to go back again.
The property is located on a beautiful hill overlooking Flamingo and Portrero Bay with spectacular views of both mountains and ocean. The owners absolutely take pride in their properties and ensured that I had a pleasant experience throughout my stay. Igor was kind enough to give me a tour of the Properties and what all Villas Casa Loma has to offer (so much!). I cannot wait to come back to enjoy those beautiful sunsets and listening to the waves crash every morning.
Thank you for the kind words! Costa Rica is missing you!
We are certainly waiting for your return - (hopefully for a longer stay next time).
Currently, we are busily trimming trees and flowering plants and thinning out some of the more aggressive palm trees to ensure even better views of the hills, sunsets, and ocean.
Now that you have an idea of the variety of accommodations that we have to offer here at Villas Casa Loma you will have a better idea of what will suit your needs on your next visit.
Surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, fishing, and sailing are but a few of the many ocean activities to be had easily here - while resting in the shade of a palm tree or covered terrace are clearly excellent options. Do it all - or do nothing at all...The choice is always yours here in our little corner of Paradise!
We anticipate seeing you again soon here at Villas Casa Loma.
PURA VIDA!! Tom and Igor
Enjoyed our stay at Villas Casa Loma.
It was a family vacation of 8, with each group having their own suite within 2 of the beautiful villas. We all shared the same pool and ate our meals on the terrace. The local restaurants were great and there are 3 great beaches in the vicinity, however, a car is recommended to get around. The property is well maintained and very safe as the owners live on-site. They were very pleasant to deal with and extremely helpful. I would recommend this property.
Thanks, Tessa, for your Review of Villas Casa Loma. We always appreciate it when our guests point out the positives - and negatives - of their visit.
On the positive side, we are delighted, of course, that you and your extended family had a wonderful time here in Guanacaste. There is so much to see and do and always new and exciting experiences for all ages and interests.
As you pointed out, there are many fine beaches and superb restaurants close to our property. One can certainly eat one'sway through the area and still have lots more restaurants to visit after a two-week stay! Some are adjacent to lovely beaches which also create a memorable venue for our spectacular sunsets, too! Las Catalinas, Coco Loco, Sugar Beach, Tiki's, The Beach House and Costa Rica Sailing Club are but a few.
Life is good here. So much to see and do - both on land and in the ocean! Scuba diving, sailing, fishing, horseback riding, sightseeing, birding, exploring are but a few great experiences offered here in the Gold Coast of Costa Rica.
On the negative side, we want to thank you for pointing out that some kitchen utencils were not to your standard. (We will look into this, I assure you.) Electric stoves here are, unfortunately, a bit slow. (This seems to be a general problem due to a somewhat weaker electrical current than what you are used to up North.)
As always, we try very hard to meet our Clients' needs and apologize for any perceived inconvenience. Overall, it would seem that your visit was both a restful and happy one for you all.
We look forward to being of service to you on a future trip to Costa Rica and send our warmest best regards to you and your family. PURA VIDA from our little corner of Paradise! Tom and Igor
Incredible views and more......
One of the secret places of Costa Rica!
You will not regret choosing Villas Casa Loma for your next vacation. Accommodations are all unique, spacious and comfortable. There is something for everyone. (one of our favorite activities was to settle in with a glass of wine on our spacious covered terrace and toast the sun setting over the ocean each evening.) Consider the fabulous sunsets, the wealth of wildlife, the friendliness of the 'locals' and expats, the fascinating things to see and do!
Thank you Tom and Igor for making Villas Casa Loma such a special place to relax in! The pools, views, area activities, the fine restaurants, the friends we met ... All special... We will always remember our stay there with relatives and friends from Europe. From the moment we got off the airplane we did nothing but smile and laugh. What a great vacation!
There is so much to see and do in the area of Flamingo Beach. We hardly scratched the surface, but kept very busy during our 2 month visit to Costa Rica. We are all planning to return for the fun and the friendships.
The beaches are just the start for a wonderful tropical experience. Foodies will love the huge selection of great restaurants in the area. Active individuals will certainly enjoy - as we did - the many options for activities on both land and in the water.
We fished offshore one day and had a fabulous time. The next day we went for a day trip to some fascinating local villages, took a spectacular river cruise, ate delicious local food and bought indigenous souvenirs for friends back home. Other days we either relaxed by one of the pools, visited various beaches of the area and snoozed in the shade of the palms that dot the property.
Much to do! We highly recommend this property. Perhaps we will meet you there on our next trip.
Thanks to you all for your visit! This was your fourth visit, and this time you brought some relatives, too! We really had a "blast" and got a great kick out of meeting them. We seem to be developing into a destination for family get-togethers - and what better place than Villas Casa Loma! Lots of room to spread out - and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, too!
Your active family certainly took in the sights and were constantly on the move. One of our favourite memories is from the day we all loaded into a couple of vehicles and did an amazing day trip to Nicoya and Nosara Beach, stopping at Guanacaste's only coffee processing plant for a tour and an interesting side trip through the hills to the indigenous village of Matambe. Our final destination of Nosara was crowned by spectacular views and a great beach-side meal. We certainly enjoyed the day! We'll certainly do it again and again!
We hope that you and your family will return again soon, too. There is so much more for you all to see and do here!
We're looking forward to your next visit to our little corner of Paradise!
