Customer Reviews

Patsy and Hank - Dallas


"My family rented Villa Kiskadee in April of 2009....you enter via your own private, curving driveway...very exclusive....the house sits at the end surrounded by lush tropical gardens.....when you enter, the entire back side of the house opens to the pool and the ocean views. Each bedroom suite has ocean views and balconies, so everyone was happy. Mauricio handled all of our needs, from tours, activities and restaurant reservations. Very professional and he made it easy for us. We saw monkeys, sloths and toucans everyday. We loved the house and we will be back!"

Mike - New York


"Our stay at Villa Kiskadee was nothing less than spectacular! The villa is located in a private gated community called Tulemar Gardens. The house and the views were amazing and enjoyed the daily visits of the local wildlife (Howler, Titi & Cappuchin monkeys, toucans, sloths, etc). When we arrived at the villa, we were greeted by Dave, Mauricio and the staff. Dave and Mauricio made every effort to make our vacation a memorable one. Mauricio's recommendations on restaurants, activities and in-house chef were all spot on. He also arranged all of our transportation and grocery needs. We would definitely recommend this to families or a group of friends and hope to return soon."

Susan & Manoj - Santa Monica


"Our 1st trip to Costa Rica. Looked for luxurious, & romantic location for our honeymoon.

    After much research, we were rewarded for picking:
  • - One of the best areas : Manuel Antonio Beach
  • - The best gated communities in Manuel Antonio : Tulemar Gardens (only one with private beach)
  • - One of the most secluded & luxurious homes w/ magnificent unobstructed ocean views : Villa Kiskadee (VK)!

Here, you'll appreciate glorious sunrises & sunsets, visits by monkeys & admire many exotic birds. Plus, there are 2 resident sloths in the trees @ VK. Plenty of photo ops for shutterbugs! Besides the visual treats, the home is spacious, spectacular, & lovely. Friendly housekeeping & property maintenance by Luz & Wiston was pristine. Free shuttle service to those not wanting to take the short steep hike to the private beach or to the main entrance.

Accommodations are outstanding - service & attention offered by the staff is superb. We were pleasantly greeted by Dave & Mauricio upon our arrival. Even though we were delayed a few hours, they were still on the property to warmly welcome us with cool refreshments and gifts.

Mauricio is an ambassador of Manuel Antonio. He and the staff here, know all of the best places to dine or have a drink, many are within walking distance of Tulemar. Mauricio & staff happily arranged the best tours and activities of our liking. Call on Mauricio for any need you have, from arranging cabs - to a ride to the nearby market. He is a star at this place and you will greatly appreciate his knowledge, services, and hospitality. We highly recommend this community and the villas managed by Dave and Mauricio."

"In April my family rented Villa Kisskadee for spring break. From the moment Dave contacted me, I knew my vacation would be perfect. He explained everything from our travel plans, the area, the attractions and the house. Everything he said was accurate. He helped me plan our vacation and was able to answer all my questions.

Having a family of boys (15,12 and 7) I needed a certain amount of adventure and my husband and I needed a certain amount of luxury and relaxation....Villa Kisskadee is the answer. Set on the grounds of Tulemar made our trips to the beach easy. The house is private and beautiful. The pictures dont really capture the beauty of the house. Mauricio makes sure everything "happens". Each day we would tell him what we wanted to do and he arranged everything. I did not have to plan anything ahead of time because Mauricio planned our activities each day.

We did a wide range of activities...zip lines, rafting, waterfall repelling, national park tours, jet skiing, grocery store trips, private chefs....the list goes on and Mauricio was our expert guide. One day we wanted a banana leaf to cook some fish in and within minutes he was at our door showing us how to do it.

Our trip was the perfect balance of adventure, relaxation (massages on the patio), great food and beautiful immaculate accommodations. I would highly recommend this property or anything else where Dave and Mauricio are involved. I hope I have another chance to visit!"
