From the moment you arrive, you will be in awe of the views! The house is beautiful, well equipped, and has all things Costa Rica surrounding you! During our three night trip, we saw one monkey, many macaws, some parrots, more birds than we could count, and lizards. And the house is separated into two main parts parts - The kitchen, dining, and living space (this space is not air-conditioned, but does have ceiling fans) and the bedroom (that does have air-conditioning). To get between these two living spaces you must walk between a small corridor that is not screened in. This was not a big deal, however, it’s good to note because you have to open the screen doors to get between the two spaces. And the house has a very open air concept. We never felt unsafe because you have to go through a guard station and through multiple gates before you ever reach the actual property. The pool is gorgeous and very sprawling, but does need to be cleaned better. Overall, we absolutely loved the property, the gorgeous views, the spacious pool, and would stay here again!

The location is amazing and the view breathtaking. We loved the house, the poll and the fact that it's petfriendly. And Alex was always ready to help. However there are two main things that made us decide to give it 4 stars instead of 5. The internet was never more than 1Mb during our whole stay which is not what you want when you work online (we were assured that it's usually "really fast" but it never change). And when we first arrived we noticed that the fridge wasn't working properly and although Alex was very helpful in getting someone to repair it, it took several days to get it fixed, some of our food going bad and multiple people coming over (something that we really wanted to avoid while social distancing).
Nonetheless this was a beautiful place to stay and we hope these issues (specially the internet speep) get resolved so we can come back.
Manager response:
Hi, Daniel! Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We do apologize for the inconveniences you encountered. The homeowner is in the process of getting the internet connection improved, and the refrigerator has been addressed. We hope to see you again!

This is a must experience property --- it was exactly what I needed (a solo traveler unwinding from the daily grind of corporate america). La Loma was spacious, perfectly situated (upon a hill, with 180 degree views looking onto the mountains, the jungle and the pacific ocean), surrounded by wildlife (the beautiful scarlet macaws, many other birds, lizards and geckos -- such incredible creatures, monkeys, etc), and the Owner provided everything I needed. My stay at the property was lengthy (nearly 2 months) -- so I got to experience the morning greetings of the birds singing, the daily sunrises and then the daily sunsets, the stars at night -- Sirius is so bright, countless hours in the pool (kept incredibly clean thanks to Alexis), and centrally located for when I went south and spent a weekend at Manuel Antonio and then another weekend when I went more North to visit Arenal (tip: should you drive towards San Ramon or the Arenal area -- I strongly recommend not taking Route 713 -- find an alternative). Coming back to La Loma was always welcoming and peaceful. My sanctuary for rest and contemplation.

Property details: one bedroom that has 2 comfortable queen beds and the bedroom has A/C (although most nights there was a comfortable breeze and the A/C wasn't needed). The Villa has three full bathrooms! There is a comfy chair to lounge in between the bedroom and the main house. The main house has everything I needed -- coffee maker, huge ice machine, and a rice cooker (perfect for making fast, easy and yummy meals), couches in the living room, lovely eight person dining table, stools for the bar area -- and 180 degree views of the jungle, the ocean and the amazing wildlife).

Tip: enjoy the pool as much as possible
Tip: the grocery store I most preferred was the Auto Mercado in Plaza Herradura (it's worth the drive). There was also a Mas X Menos in Jaco. Both of these had many of the kinds of foods (including gluten free options) that I was used too. Also, for fruits / veggies, there are many many places along the road to stop and get these items.
Tip: be sure to rent a car (I suggest 4x4 and booking through Adobe). 4x4 is not needed throughout the year, but I preferred it for peace of mind regardless of the season. You'll want a car to explore the local area of Tarcoles and hopefully (if you have time) to explore other local sights (like Jaco, Manuel Antonio (suggest staying at the Hotel Parador), Arenal, Vida Mountain Resort outside of San Ramon, and so many towns in between)
Tip: Arrive at the house (especially for the first time), during daylight hours. The home is on a dirt road that is very well maintained from what I observed during my entire stay. And plan to use Waze (or google maps)
Tip: soak it in!!! this place changed my life :-) Pura Vida!! Thank you Costa Rica and Villa La Loma!!

Disclaimer: for any spelling errors, grammatical errors, etc. thank you for your grace in overlooking these.

Villa La Loma is nested at the peak of a mountain near a Reserve, this allows unreal views of the coast, the place actually looks like the pictures if not better, we were able to see Monkeys, Scarlet Macaws and Parrots right in our garden. It is the perfect place to get away from everything, peace and quiet all the time. The owner has made sure you have everything you need including a super convenient ice maker, house is clean and very well equipped. Will surely come back.

Very well equipped. The pool is amazing!!

Wir haben dieses wunderschöne Haus sehr genossen! Die Ruhe mit herrlicher Aussicht, auch wenn man sich im Haus befindet, sind zum abschalten Ideal. Es hat an nichts gefehlt und der super Pool hat unseren Aufenthalt in der Villa la loma unvergesslich gemacht. Selbst der etwas längere Anfahrtsweg auf einer Schotterpiste hat unseren Eindruck nicht gemindert. Alex, der das Haus und den Garten pflegt und auch auf dem Grundstück wohnt, ist immer hilfsbereit wenn er gebraucht wird.

This place was private, loved the pool, and the house was beautiful. All the animals were amazing, monkeys, birds, etc. Never felt scared with the animals as they might have been close for viewing but they never came too close and you could really enjoy them. That was one of the biggest highlights of the day, to see and hear all the animals. The view is just amazing. I would highly recommend this place, just need to know a little of their language to communicate with the person who takes care of the property while you are there. Great place we will be back! Jaco is about a half hour away, shopping, groceries, etc. and the airport is about an hour and a half, next time we will rent a vehicle.

Wow! This place was absolutely stunning! It’s actually not that easy to impress me, but I was impressed! I look for three things when I travel...cleanliness, views, and privacy. This place hit all three! When I say private, I mean you can stand outside naked and not one person could see and that’s exactly what I was looking for (not to walk naked but the privacy part). It was very clean! As for the view, whatever words I write won’t do it justice. The view is just...it’s just...YOU NEED TO SEE IT! The sunset, the pool the mountains, the ocean, the birds (so many beautiful macaws and toucans)...EVERYTHING! You just need to see it. The house itself is the perfect size, extremely clean, and full of everything you need. The master bathroom was perfect and the AC was great. To get there is a bit different. But like all homes in the mountains, it’s on a dirt road...takes about 15 minutes on the dirt road but worth it. Just follow the directions. As for Alex, what do I say...Alex made our stay as smooth as possible! I asked Alex prior to my visit for extreme privacy and that’s exactly what I got. You know when you meet someone and say “that person is one of the greats!”...that’s Alex! Offered assistance anytime we needed it. He lives just two minutes away and was available at all times. I texted Alex anytime I needed anything and he was there in minutes. Alex, thank you FOR EVERYTHING! Do not hesitate to book this home! I recommend this to anyone who is looking for the items I searched so hard for. The view...still can’t believe it!

This property was amazing. If you're in need of some quiet time to recharge, this property is the place. It's a bit off the beat and path and you should travel well supplied. I plan to be a frequent flyer to this place.

La casa se encuentra en un desarrollo privado en una loma con una vista espectacular. Disfrutamos muchísimo el mountain bike por los caminos, caminatas y paseos a lugares bellísimos como la Catarata de Bijagual y el Parque Nacional Carara. La casa tiene dos tiendas de campaña separadas de la casa lo que la hace más apta para una familia o grupo de adulto jóven o adolescentes. En la casa se acomodan 4 personas en una habitación. La ubicación es cercana a las playas, si se quisieran visitar, pero no era nuestra prioridad. No puedo dejar de mencionar la arquitectura bellísima de la casa, la piscina preciosa y enorme y una cocina bien equipada.
