“Casa Tranquila is like being at the end of the rainbow.”
Reviewed 27 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Having taught with Mr. Corvette a "few" years ago, I knew what kind of retreat he would offer his guests. Still on TX time, I awoke the first morning at 5:30 and sat on the upper balcony til 9:30. The views are spectacular. The villa sits on its own little hill, not disturbed by neighbors or outside noise. The camaraderie and professionalism that Don and Nathan offer is, without question, superb. More than ample room is available to groups of friends or families. The pool, the beach, the ocean, the sightseeing opportunities all come together to make an outstanding vacation getaway. I just thought I knew the kind of retreat he would have; I could not imagine just how beautiful and perfect it would really be.

It's always such a pleasure, Becky, when "old friends" return to Casa Tranquila. Reliving our remembrances from those classroom days made me just a little teary. It was very special seeing you again. Thanks, now, for the new "old memories". See you again soon. Donald & Nathan

“Great place, fabulous views, excellent hosts...”
Reviewed 20 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We had such an amazing vacation in Costa Rica and staying at Casa Tranquila made it that much more special. The home is beautiful. We took advantage of the main house plus the Casita. It was perfect for our needs. My daughter loved the pool and swam every day. We loved sitting outside, looking at the amazing view while sipping a cocktail. Donald and Nathan are fabulous hosts. They made sure every need was taken care of. Our excursions were wonderful - we highly recommend the buggy ride, the zip line and the guide in the park. Additionally, they arranged for us to have a private chef - this was over the top amazing. We loved this place and look forward to when we can return. We feel so fortunate to have some new friends in Costa Rica.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 14 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were four couples traveling together in early October for a much needed vacation. What a joy to have found Donald and Nathan and Casa Tranquila. Everything about our stay at the casa and our trip to Costa Rica was perfect. The villa is absolutely beautiful. There are stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, tastefully appointed bedrooms, a well stocked kitchen, comfortable sitting areas and a large dining area. There are even umbrellas and rain jackets.
Team Casa Tranquila expertly orchestrated our airport pick up and all of our tours and events as well as providing us with a very informative “Guide to Costa Rica”. Paulette worked as a quiet “Energizer Bunny” making sure that all of our needs were met on a daily basis at the villa. Juan made sure that the pool and grounds were neat and tidy and the adorable squirrel monkeys and white face capuchins kept us entertained when they came to visit every afternoon. There really are not enough words to describe the conscientious care that we received while we were guests at the villa.
Donald and Nathan, thank you for a wonderful vacation. We all look forward to returning.

“Stunning Villa with Wonderful Hospitality”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We just returned from a wonderful and most relaxing vacation at the beautiful Casa Tranquila. It is a beautiful villa located in a wonderful location between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park. The home has spectacular views and rates 5 stars in beauty, luxury and most importantly comfort. We were a group of 8 friends traveling (4 couples) so the layout is perfect for couples since each suite in the main house has three beautiful bedrooms with their own private baths. The casita is a perfect little oasis on its own with spectacular views through the glass windows.

The villa is decorated beautifully with wonderful touches all around. Gorgeous flowers in every room. The kitchen table is huge and was perfect for 8 of us to sit around. We never felt cramped. Everything was amazing, the villa, location, the property, and the views were all wonderful.

The best part of our stay by far was the wonderful hospitality we received from Donald and Nathan. Nathan made sure our vacation was packed with informative and fun day trips so we could always come back by the afternoon and relax by the pool. He made our trip worry-free in every way. Donald was a wonderful host who met us at the villa with all the information we would need for our stay. It was refreshing to not have to wonder where light switches were, etc. Such enthusiasm and passion about their place made us feel like we were part of the Costa Rican family immediately. Paulette came every day and kept the place immaculate as did Juan on the grounds and pool.

Only a short walk (a little hilly if you are of a certain age ) brings you to the main road where you can catch the bus for 65 cents! The bus travels between Quepos and MA Park and is a wonderful way to explore Costa Rica. It was a wonderful experience for us staying at Casa Tranquila. I can’t recommend our experience enough.

The best part of our stay by far was our interactions with Donald & Nathan. They went above and beyond to answer any questions we had and to offer up suggestions for good local restaurants and places to see. They made our trip and we will definitely return for another stay at the beautiful Casa Tranquila.

Thanks Laura and Tree! We felt like "Family" from the instant you arrived! Thanks for your glowing (and very humbling) praise. We strive to intuit the wishes of our friends at Casa Tranquila, so I am very happy we were correct that you wanted to include us. I promise we enjoyed you all every bit as much as you did us. We cannot wait to see you all again next year!

“relaxing and accommodating- a great place!”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Casa Tranquila is right where you want to be in the heart of Manuel Antonio. There are great amenities here and the staff is knowledgeable and accommodating. For my wife and I, and our three teenage daughters, it offered the perfect blend of activity, relaxation, and proximity. I highly recommend this place. Nathan, Paulette and Donald go out of their way to make you feel at home and provide insight and experience, making your stay memorable and special.

Thanks Ned for allowing Nathan and me to be a part of your family during your visit last week. You and Heidi and The Girls were warm and endearing, and we appreciate our afternoon "Happy Hours". You guys were "One in a Million", and, on your next visit, we promise a necklace to prove it! Come back soon! Donald & Nathan . . .Sombra & Fergus.
