"Everything was amazing. I can't even
think of anything to do better!"
"Dear Scott, Thank you for sharing
Villa La Macha with us. Your web site is great (the best one I've
seen). However, there is nothing like seeing it in person for the
very first time. Looking out off the front balcony, I knew I was
some place very special. Jamie and Cecilia were absolutely fantastic.
I can't describe in words what being there with them meant to our
family. It seems like Jamie knew everybody in Quepos. Just ask
him about anything and he knows the answer. Cecilia after two days
knew exactly what we liked to eat and always had it on hand for
us. Her guacamole was a huge hit. She started out making it in
a small cup but when she saw how much we liked it she started making
it by the half gallon always fresh, always unbelievablely good.
Villa La Macha is a special place and Jamie and Cecilia made our
vacation special. Thank you for sharing your home with us."
"The villa was absolutely beautiful,
especially its wonderful views. At first I thought it would be
a little bit uncomfortable to have someone cook and clean for us,
but I must say that I quickly got over that hurdle! It was great
to show up and have a wonderful lunch prepared, and I appreciated
a few cooking lessons from Ceci during the week. Perhaps the best
part of Ceci and Jota was that they had so much to share about
their lives in Costa Rica, which made the trip more special. I
enjoyed hanging out with them and learning about their families
and backgrounds. The place was amazing, our time at the villa was
fabulous, and we thank you so much for giving us the opportunity
to stay at La Macha."
"We really enjoyed the beautiful setting,
comfortable accommodations, and wonderful views. The staff were
friendly and helpful. The pool was extremely refreshing on hot
"Staff was tremendous. Jamie and Cecilia
worked hard and really seemed to enjoy doing so. Food was amazing.
The house was beautiful, loved the new floors and decks. Loved
the hot tub upstairs, even though I had to chase away the resident
frog every morning."
"Jamie and Ceceila made the visit to
Villa La Macha so easy for us. Usually when you have only one week
in a new area you have just figured out the territory and it's
time to go home. Jamie was either at the Villa or just a phone
call away. You are very fortunate to have such a trustworthy and
capable staff. We hope to return on another vacation.
Jamie and Celia are beyond wonderful. I
loved the fabulous sunsets every night, and the periodic appearances
of the monkeys and iguanas. The villa also had the best pool we've
had so far. We had a wonderful time, and Jamie and Celia really
went out of their way to care for our every need and want. I will
strongly recommend Villa La Macha to everyone we know."
"Our stay was amazing! The Villa is
beautiful, the views incredible. We were very pleased with the
level of service and professionalism from both Jaime and Cecelia.
Jaime got us everything we wanted, the food was always fresh and
prepared well. The Villa was spotless every day! Over all it was
great experience, we would highly recommend Villa La Macha to our
family and friends!"
My experience there was top-notch!!! Jamie
and Cecilia felt like family. I miss them already and this was
my first visit!!!! I hope to see them on my next visit!!!"
"We really enjoyed our stay. Jamie
is wonderful! He is a real asset. He met our needs above and beyond.
He let Cecilia know what we wanted. This was our 2nd stay and we
love it. The first time we came with 8 kids. Thank you so much!"
" The improvements made to your home
are simply gorgeous. The view from the balcony in the living room
is incredible. Some places have an infinity edge swimming pool
but now you have an infinity edge living room. Just awesome! Jaime
and Cecilia were excellent just as the first time and Greilyn was
the perfect babysitter for our infant. Jaime really invested a
lot of time to make sure we were very happy. I think he is your
greatest asset and I would take him home to work for me if I didn't
have any moral ethics. Thanks for a wonderful 2nd time in Villa
"The trip was out of this world, really
fantastic. i can see why you lived there for a year ---- it might
take me that long or longer before being ready to come home!"
(Note: Cecilia retired in 2007. The current staff is Jota, Kathya, and Carmen.)
