  • From the moment we pulled up to Casa Vida Verde, we felt as though we had found absolute paradise! The house is unbelievably gorgeous and well maintained. The beds are very comfortable and are made up with top-quality linens. The furniture throughout the house is beautiful and unique and has been hand-crafted ‚ĶTake care to check out the dining room table which has been built from a single tree and curves along with the contours of the tree and whose base has been crafted from a piece of the trunk, cut lengthwise into three pieces so that it maintains the curvature of the tree - unbelievable craftsmanship!

  • Paradise were the first words out of our mouths. The house is absolutely incredible. You feel like you are right next to nature with all the comforts of home. We saw monkeys in the trees around the house daily, toucans and macaws. It was a short hike to the beach and the trails were great for exploring. Carlos, the caretaker, was very friendly and helpful. It is definitely a bit of work to get there, but definitely worth it. I would recommend a massage by the pool from Saene, Carlos's wife - it was a treat. It was hard to leave after only a week. We will be back.

  • We very much enjoyed the caretakers, Carlos and Sianna. They were fabulous and couldn't do enough for us. it was very interesting discussing astronomy and other topics with Carlos. Sianna is a great massage therapist and we had awesome massages. Very worthwhile!

  • We absolutely LOVED our stay at Casa Vida Verde. We enjoyed the 4-wheel drive road into Cabo Matapalo where the home is located, as we find the challenge of 4-wheeling a fun adventure. (The road definitely gives you the feeling of being off the beaten path!) And we found the home to be absolutely beautiful and very well designed
