My stay at Casa Mariposa was sublime. It is the perfect jungly bungalow, with all the necessary amenities and tucked away in a quiet corner. My favorite pastime was to relax in the hammock in the early evening, watching the light come down and listening to the night sounds come up. It was my first experience of true tropical rainforest, and everything from those madcap howler monkeys to torrential evening rain to banana-leaf silhouettes under a full moon was so cool and immersive. Animal sightings around the casita included the resident toucans, agoutis, morpho butterflies, bats, sloth and various monkey families.The staff were kind and capable. Thanks for making my excellent holiday possible.

Casa Colibri is a perfect getaway in the most beautiful part of Costa Rica. The house is tucked away so that you feel you're living in the jungle, but within a few minutes walk is one of the best coastlines in the world. We saw a lot of wildlife just from the terrace, sloths, butterflies, hummingbirds, dart frogs and even an ocelot - a rarely seen wild cat. We've been recommending Casa Colibri and Cocles to all of our friends and look forward to visiting again.
Thanks - Andrew

We wanted to extend our thanks, what a wonderful place you have - it was so hard to leave. Green Property Management was beyond polite and helpful. We had such a relaxed time, you would have thought we were the only ones in the whole area, it was so quiet. We would certainly return for another stay at Casa Mariposa.

What an incredible trip! Peter and I had an unforgettable time, and can hardly wait to go back. Casa Colibri was lovely - everything we hoped it would be and then some. We saw more wildlife from the terrace than in the three national parks we visited, including the resident sloth. We did the botanical gardens, went on hikes and soaked in the laid back atmosphere. Thanks again for everything, we will certainly be back.

It truly was amazing! Casa Mariposa was beautiful and had everything we needed. The scenery nothing short of spectacular. We saw nemerous animals around the yard - monkeys, agouti, toucans, dart frogs, lizards and of course Pepe the three legged dog came around for visits. The sounds of the jungle at night, the magnificant ocean and the beaty of the the natonal parks were among our favotie things.

We just returned home from Casa Colibri, it was the best vacation ever. The house is wonderful, the neighborhood amazing...we are ready to book a return visit for December - it's a magical place!
We had an amazing time at Casa Mariposa! It was just hands-down the best vacation we've ever had. The house was perfect. Clean, lots of privacy, just a gorgeuos setting. We saw toucans and even a little tapis! The flowers! The beach was so close we could hear the waves crashing at night. Green Management was wonderful, they got us everything we needed. We met so many great people and just were so happy!

Thanks for letting us stay at Casa Marposa, we had an amazing time. One morning we woke up and a sloth was hanging from one of the trees just staring at us as we relaxed in the hammock. What a location, we wish we could have stayed longer.

Just home from Casa Colibri – loved the house, especially the colors and it’s very appropriately named, so many hummingbirds in the neighborhood…I’ll be back soon.

Staying at Casa Colibri was a tonic. Warm winds, floating butterflies, lush jungle right to the ocean's edge. The little house was clean, comfortably appointed, and welcoming. We hope to come back!
