Stayed: Nov 2012 Jody C: Great house for family and friends.
It was a fabulous property and perfect for a significant birthday party with family and friends. The house is beautiful and maintained extremely well. It accommodates many people beautifully with the suite bedrooms and gourmet kitchen. The surroundings and location are perfect for a relaxing vacation. I would highly recommend it to families or a group of friends.
PARADISE IN RESERVA CONCHAL.............. FJune 11, 2012 PAULA G:
WE HAD THREE COUPLES STAY AT THIS BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY AT RESERVA CONCHAL IN COSTA RICA AND COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE PLEASED!! THE OWNERS, CHRIS AND COLLEEN O'BRIEN MADE SURE IT WAS EVERYTHING THAT WAS PROMISED TO US AND MORE. THE HOUSE WAS BEAUTIFUL AND ACCOMMODATED OUR GROUP COMFORTABLY. THE EVENING SUNSETS OVER THE GOLF COURSE WERE SPECTACULAR AND THE BEACH CLUB WAS AN ASSET TO US AS WELL. WE WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND "VILLA AUGUSTINA" ON YOUR NEXT VACATION TO COSTA RICA!
RECONNECT WITH FAMILY Colleen L. on May 18, 2010:
My twelve year old son had never traveled internationally, so I decided to take him to Villa Augustina for his 7th Grade Spring Break. It was the best seven days I ever spent with my son. He learned so much, including how to navigate customs and immigrations. But most of all, this beautiful home provided a safe, affordable vacation that allowed me to expose him to nature, a new language, different customs, the simplicity of beach life, and extravagance all in one trip. We dined elegantly at Mar y Sol one night, and ate on the beach watching critters the next. We went to the Beach Club to enjoy the spa, then walked through town looking at souvenirs. Then, we returned to the Villa to work on a poetry project using high-speed internet. We felt like we got three vacations in one! It was a trip that provided memories for life. It will be a tough act to follow if I ever want to take him any where else, so we might just have to return to Villa Augustina every Spring Break! Thank you for the best vacation ever!

I recently went there with my girlfriend and another couple. We are all in our late 20's and were looking for a relaxing vacation, but with lots things to do that didnt involve all partying. It was the first time we stayed at a villa and we couldnt have been more pleased. The house is beautiful, the open design allows for great breezes at night so you dont need to sleep with the air conditioning if you dont want to. The house was spotless, and there was a cleaning woman who came two times during the week and there was a gardener there who maintained the grounds and cleaned the pool. The pool is great for just relaxing around the house and the access to beach club offers another great pool in addition to access to the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica. The employees at the rental office are extremely helpful in regards to booking everything from tours to taxi's. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone.

Tracy D. on March 26, 2009: Spectacular!!
The house is great! We had 2 families and had more than enough room. The kids loved the pool and beutiful views of the golf course. The house was clean and well maintained. It more than met our expectations. The staff at reserva conchal are outstanding and went beyond the call of duty. The shuttle came to take us to the beach club which is great! Love the beach, restaurant, work-out area. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this property.

Margaret Lin on Feb. 10, 2009 Amazing Upscale Villa
I just came back from my trip to Costa Rica, and I miss it dearly already. My husband and I just got married there at the end of January, and we rented this beautiful home (Villa Augustina) for our bridemaids and us. It was incredible: completely brand new with modern, upscale furniture, remote controlled A/C wall units in each of the 4 bedrooms, a brand new bathroom for each bedroom plus a 1/2 for the living room, and a perfect, gorgeous infinity pool. If I were to design my own house, this is what it would look like. We are already thinking about planning our next family reunion here! The resort provides shuttle service to the excellent Reserva Conchal Beach Club, which is about 10 minutes away and right by Playa Conchal. The food there is really, really good; the head chef used to work at Daniel in NYC, so the food is delicious, beautifully presented, and actually quite reasonable in price considering its complexity and European flair. I'm dying to go back...
