Kind Words from Recent Guests

I had the amazing oppurtunity to visit Casa Yin Yang again. My fourth time to this property. Every time we go it gets better as the owner is constantly updating the house. We chose the chef option this time and the food was magnificent. Aleric the surf guide with his patient professional instruction has our whole family surfing. This really is one of the best locations on the globe. Can’t wait to go back again. Pura Vida

We stayed here for 11 nights and everything about the house was fabulous. The house was even better than we imagined via the photos. A great location, very close to the beach and a number of very good restaurants. Our children loved playing in the pool and watching all the animals. “Iggy”, the iguana was our favourite. We really enjoyed the outdoor space especially the hammocks. The house had everything we needed and our stay felt like we were in paradise. The great location means you don’t have to travel far to zip-line, ride horses on the beach, deep sea fish and surf!

Jane M – Casa Pelicano

To sum up Mariposa in one word would be AMAZING! I have stayed with Mariposa for three straight years and each year is better than the last. The property is located at the nicest point of the most breathtaking beach in Costa Rica, which also happens to be one of the best local surf spots, so win win! Taking a few shorts steps from the home you will be able to witness some of the most beautiful sunsets this world has to offer! The property has its own private beach access and is conveniently located for travelers with or without a rental car. A supermarket is located across the street and some of the best restaurants in town are located within walking distance.

This is the second time I have stayed in Casa Iguana and I fully intend to keep going back. The location is first class – the private entry makes getting to the beach breeze, and there are several great restaurants a few minutes walk down the road as well as a supermarket a stones throw away.  The staff are fantastic, friendly and helpful.

Chris – Albany

We stayed in Casa Ying Yang for 14 days, and had the most perfect vacation ever. The house was clean, modern and with all necessary equipment for a comfortable stay, even for pale, cold Norwegians. The outdoor area is even more amazing. The pool and bubble bath was a life saver in the warm climate. We didn’t spend any time indoor, except when sleeping. The garden, with its locals (Iguanas, squirrels, butterflies and so on, was beautiful.

Janne – Norway

What a wonderful place! We had 14 days in paradise. Will never forget Casa Ying Yang, Santa Teresa. Perfect location and service at very high level. The house was of very high quality and had everything we Northerners need in a tropical environment. Thanks to Marta who arranged everything we wanted with a smile.
