Set in a private 24 lot gated community, on a working coffee plantation. A very quiet and relaxing atmosphere, with fantastic views of the Gulf of Nicoya and the Pacific Ocean.

The space

2900 square feet of beautiful living space located just 10 minutes west of San Ramon. Only 40 minutes west of San Jose airport, off of the Panamerican Highway. Another 35 minutes west to several beaches on the Pacific Coast.

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large living and dining rooms, spacious fully functional kitchen with new appliances. Walk-in to full laundryroom with washer & dryer. Amazing terrace that spans the full length of the back of the house, facing the Gulf of Nicoya and Pacific Ocean. Enjoy early morning breakfasts, mid-afternoon cocktails, and beautiful sunsets on our spacious terrace. Bird watching and just plain relaxing can also be enjoyed!

Major attractions such as Poas Volcano, La Paz, Carara National Rainforest, La Fortuna, Arenal Lake & Volcano, Sarchi, and the Gulf of Nicoya are all within 90 minutes of our house. Activities such as Zip-Lining, Hiking, Whitewater Rafting, Sports Fishing, Swimming, Biking, Sunbathing, Snorkeling, Scubadiving, Boating, and Bird Watching are all within easy reach. It's a nature lovers feast.

Our house is in a 24 lot gated community, on a spacious 5000 square meter lot. The property still operates as a working coffee plantation. Beautiful trails, a waterfall, creeks, tilapia pond, and of course lots of coffee plants make it a very charming and relaxing environment. Butterflies, deer, ducks, toucans, parrots and various other birds can be seen on our property. Positano de Magallanes is a very special place!

I don't recommend anyone going here. After reading all the good reviews, we were very excited to go here. It turned out to spoil our trip for days. I don't know what happened since the last guest left, but it was very, very dirty. The toilets weren't cleaned with urine all over the place, there was an awfull smell (it turns out the owners have a dog), molt in the coffeepot, dead insects all over the place, bloodstains in the sheets and so on. My kids were exhausted after a long trip so we decided to stay here the night of the arrival. That night we contacted the property manager, because Joe & Liz don’t live here. It’s an investment project, so they hired a local property manager. She was on vacation, but told us that we could leave the house and get a refund. While being in a hotel, Joe & Liz, the owners on the place, overruled the decision of their manager, saying we had to contact them directly and are not giving us a refund. They were very hostile and stayed from the beginning firm in their decision. We feel really scammed. It’s a big shame. It never happened to us before and I hope AirBNB will take measures.

Response from Joe & Liz:
It's very unfortunate that you did not have as good an experience as the majority of guests that have stayed at our property in Costa Rica. We have been given more than 35 five-star reviews by our previous guests, on the two websites we use to market our property, not one was less than 5 stars. We can understand that the house may not have been cleaned to your expectations, which can happen occasionally, but our property manager did offer to get the house cleaner back in to look after things, and you simply refused her offer. When you first asked the property manager for a refund, she told you up front that she did not know the cancellation policy, and she offered again to have the house cleaner come back to clean the house to your satisfaction. Again you declined her offer. At no time did you contact us, or AIRBNB, about the situation. In fact, we sent you an email 2 days after you checked in, to see how things were going, and you did not reply. We did not hear about the situation till 3 days after your check-in. We have a strict cancellation policy, which is clearly noted on the AIRBNB website, where you booked this rental. Had you contacted us directly, we would have explained the cancellation policy, and like the property manager, offered to do whatever was necessary to look after the issues you brought up. The smell you mentioned was due probably to the fact you arrived during rainy season, and if the de-humidifier was not turned on, there would be a musty smell. Putting the de-humidifier on for half a day would have cleared that up. We found no evidence of bloodstains in the sheets, not sure where that's coming from. It seems to us that you may not have liked the location, or possibly some other reason, and so decided you wanted to get a refund and go somewhere else. It's too bad that you did not give us a chance to correct whatever you had concerns about. We are sure you would have enjoyed your stay there, as have all our guests.

Your "Paradise Getaway" was truly outstanding!!! Your house was absolutely beautiful!!! We loved waking up every morning and looking at the incredible view (I would take a picture of the view every morning and share it with my family back home). Norman and Anna (your management) made us feel so welcomed, like we were family. We truly hope that we can come back and experience Costa Rica again with our family and we'd love to do so at your house. Thank you so much for hospitality.

Thanks Marci for your lovely review. We appreciate some of your suggestions and will make some adjustments to improve everyone's experience. Unfortunately, while you were there, our internet provider was experiencing some problems with their system and had to do to some repairs. The signal comes from a tower in Puntarenas, and some other company set up a tower nearby which was causing some interference. Hopefully, they will have that all corrected soon. Hope to see you back again. Thanks again for using our home as your getaway!

My family and I were blown away by the spectacular views from this home. Norman and Ana were wonderful. Norman took us to the grocery store before going to the house so we could cook meals in this fully equipped home. Rooms were perfectly decorated with comfortable beds. Loved the master bathroom rainfall shower. The house had plenty of towels, instructions on where to visit and a nice memory garden to leave something for the homeowners. We had a fabulous stay and would definitely go back!

This villa is breathtaking! We had an incredible time in this serene and gorgeous spot. The home has everything you could need from a fully equipped kitchen to cozy outdoor furniture to incredible speaker system. Joe and Liz were very responsive in our communication leading up to the trip, and their property managers Ana and Norman were so helpful once we arrived. They made sure we felt comfortable and knew our surroundings. This place is incredible, and Joe, Liz, Norm and Ana made it even better!

Beautifully situated with the warmth of a home away from home with all the essentials necessary to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. We enjoyed mornings and evenings at the patio. This is truly a beautiful house in a secure and peaceful location. The property is managed by a local team and they were very pleasant and made our stay extra special. Always available to take care of anything we needed and provided tips for local hidden gems. I would definitely reach out to Joe for our next trip to book this place for few days.

Staying at Joe & Liz's villa was - probably the best - part of a memorable 2 week trip we had in Costa Rica. The villa on AirBnb stood out to me because I was looking for a high quality resident for my family's first trip to the country. Then I met Joe, before leaving to CR, and was very pleasantly surprised by the friendliness, attention to detail and care in instructing me about everything. We stayed at the villa as our first destination before going to Tamarindo. It was a high end experience... and I am quite picky. The place is newly built at quite high altitude and it is an exquisite construction - I am passionate about construction. No matter where in the house we could see the valley tens of kilometers away. On clear days we could see Guanacaste and ocean. All around one case see coffee fields, lower down the edge of tropical forest and in some areas even pine trees - Costa Rica is surprising this way. Over the next few days the time slowed down and we could feel the stress of North American living leave room to more strategic thinking about our future. The small community of expats around is worth knowing and we became friends quite easily with a few of them. Felt among family. Then, we spent 4 days in Flamingo loading with sun and the ocean. On the way back we passed by the house again and could appreciate again the freshness that comes with the higher altitudes. If you are looking for a mix of time off, recharging, realigning with your true purpose and taste living in Costa Rica then do not go to a resort. Consider our experience! Nick
