  • 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!

  • What a beautiful place! You really feel like you're in a treehouse. The pool isn't big, but it is perfect for cooling off and relaxing. …This is a birdwatcher's paradise. And Monkeys... We saw a dozen howlers and spider monkeys - from the deck!

  • My overall rating for my stay at Casa Vida Verde is exceptional!! Everything was exactly as advertised and expected, if not more than expected. Therefore the listing description is spot on regarding the location, layout, amenities and everything else. I would highly recommend this area and this property to others.

  • 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 …Take 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!
