Amazing Pace and host!!
The BEST family vacation in our most beloved place – beautiful Costa Rica. Our host Gio is the warmest, friendly personable and helpful in whatever we needed during our stay. We feel like we met a new friend! The house is so clean and beautiful and a short walk to the beach. Each morning we hear and see different monkeys, lizards and birds, etc. There are restaurants nearby but we have chosen to drive to town (10 minutes away) for more authentic local restaurants. Can not wait to come back next year with the family. Highly recommend this house to anyone!
We felt like celebrities!
Tracey and Gio’s place is far beyond any other VRBO or Home Away place we’ve stayed. Not only was the place breath-taking, Tracey and Gio were helpful, warm, and accommodating. For part of our stay, we had seven adults and it was very comfortable for all. The beach is a two minute walk down a dirt road. A lovely and memorable stay… and one we hope will be repeated!
This is a true gem!
My husband and I stayed in Casa Bella in December of 2019. We are SO thankful that we did! If you’re looking for an authentic Costa Rican experience, look no further! Prior to our arrival, we were in communication with our gracious hosts who provided a long list of activities and adventures to enjoy while in Puerto Jimenez. We were told of local restaurants within walking distance from the home that we could walk to for dinner. We requested assistance in navigating an island and our hosts helped coordinate a driver who brought us from the home to each activity we had planned in advance. Our catch from a fishing trip was expertly prepared by our hosts and we enjoyed an authentic and home cooked Costa Rican meal. The company of our hosts was even better! At the home, we were able to watch Scarlet Macaws fly overhead and occasionally hear monkeys nearby. On days we did not pre plan activities, we were within walking distance to the beautiful beach for a relaxing day in the sun. There is SO MUCH to see and do in Puerto Jimenez and Casa Bella is the perfect home base to enjoy it all!
I stayed at Tracey and Giovanni’s beautiful Casa at the Osa Peninsula last November over Thanksgiving. I had such a wonderful relaxing time and wish I could give this even more stars than 5!! The home was absolutely stunning! The space was such that even with 4 of us we had the ability to “get away” to our own spots and read or relax in the hammock enjoying the sounds of the ocean. The pool was wonderful as well. The ocean is steps away and you can hear the surf from the home. Tracey and Giovanni and their adorable son were such welcoming hosts!! One evening Giovanni cooked fresh fish that he caught that day for dinner. Another evening they build a bonfire on the beach at night and invited us to come down and enjoy. Anytime we needed anything all we had to do was ask. They knew the right people that we needed to get in touch with to schedule our kayaking tour (we had the most amazing private tour) Corcovado tour and anything else that we wanted to do. I will absolutely be going back and bringing my family!! I was so sad to leave. The area is in itself a paradise and the home is simply wonderful! Beyond my expectations. I look at the pictures often. Especially now that we are all quarantined. When we can travel I will be back 🙂
Love this place, right by the ocean
Love the place, love the owners, love the location. Outside of town where it’s quiet and you get the real Costa Rican nature experience, while being walking distance from town. The water right there for you to enjoy no need for taxis or long walks. It’s perfect
Crabs, monkeys, lizzards, guacamayos everywhere! and AMAZING hosts!
We stayed in Casa Bella for 2 months. What a wonderful place!
The nature in the area is mind blowing. The house itself is like an oasis, with every confort you need such as chill out areas, the pool!, outdoor showers, very confortable and spacious rooms, the kitchen and living room. Internet is super stable and when the electricity goes down for a few minutes in town, Casa Bella’s solar-panel generated energy kicks in instantly.
Tracy and Giovanni are fantastic hosts, and wonderful human beings. It has been such a pleasure to share this time with them and connect, and we are already looking forward to our next visit!
