Hi Glenn,
We finally got back to our home late Saturday night. My family and I sure did enjoy your beautiful house. And I must say "What a house." We were very impressed with the styling, orientation and decorations; especially the landscaping and all of the beautiful and detailed woodwork. What a view; it was breathtaking. Your staff was very friendly and went out thier way to accommodate our every wish. Miriam (the cook) was also very nice and made some wonderful dishes for us to enjoy. Everyone in Arenal was extremely friendly and pleasant. We look forward to returning to the area in the future. Your web site and information that your sent was exactly as advertised. Thanks again,

Hi Glenn,
Your "Villa Encantada" was absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there. We feel honored that you shared your home with us. We did get to ride horses with "Jim" which we enjoyed very much. The bird watching was fabulous also. We will be back!!! All of us fell in love with the country. Juanita, Ramon and Miriam were wonderful and made us feel right at home. Thank you again for allowing us to stay at "Villa Encantada". We are making a journal of our trip to put on the Internet and will link to your page.

Dear Glenn:
Thanks for the refund check ($300.00) of my refundable deposit on Villa Encantada. The entire trip was a wonderful experience, made all the more so by the opportunity to stay in your lovely home. On our next trip to Costa Rica we will book Villa Encantada early so that we will be assured of another fabulous vacation. Incidentally, your brochure is terrific! If you can spare a couple of extra ones, I will distribute them to colleagues who have expressed an interest. Thanks again, and Best Regards.

Hi Glenn,
I just wanted to let you know that we made it okay and that everything is great, this place is truly magnificent. I must warn you though, it may have been a big mistake to allow a big mouth >like me to know about this great place, I may have people knocking your door down to try to get in here. Well that is all I have for now, things are absolutely wonderful here and we really appreciate your help and your interest in making sure that all is well.
Talk to you soon,

Hi Glenn - I got the $300 phone deposit in the mail yesterday. I've been meaning to write you and say THANK YOU SO MUCH for letting us stay in your beautiful house! All of us were amazed at how beautiful the house and grounds and view was. We've stayed a lot of places but yours was by far the nicest we have had the pleasure to stay in. The kids could not believe I had found such a nice place through the Internet - I gained a few brownie points in the process :) I've also recommended your place to several friends - I just heard my wife had also passed on your information to an associate and she is now in contact with you. It's an easy recommendation as it's so beautiful.

Your note said the wind picked up after we left - well sometimes I have bad luck as well as good luck. Still we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation as we found Costa Rica to be a wonderful place to explore. Some windsurfing vacations I'd get bored stiff waiting for wind. But there we found so many other things to do including: rafting down a river, horse riding through the jungle, the hot springs at the volcano, a day trip to the ocean, fishing in the lake, dinner with Trino and family were just a few. So - thanks again. Next time we'll also try to make it a longer vacation!

Hi Glenn,
In the rush of departure, I think we neglected to write in the Villa Encantada guest book. We would like to thank you for the use of your lovely villa. The villa, garden and views were all spectacular. We especially appreciated Ruth's great cooking and your gardner Ramon's visits with fresh fruit.
All the best,

Hey Glenn,
Villa Encantada was awesome. So much so, that we really felt like we were slumming it once we got to Jaco. The house is absolutely gorgeous and so are all the surroundings. You have done a wonderful job. We just got all our pictures back and had already forgotten how green everything is there. For the most part we just relaxed a lot. Each night we ate somewhere different. Our adventures included the Canopy Tour, La Fortuna waterfalls and Tabacon Hot Springs. All were absolutely beautiful. The landscaping is absolutely beautiful. Once we left Villa Encantada we made our way to Jaco just in time for the rain. So much for going to the beach. Anyhow our visit there was short and like I said we really felt like the luxurious part of our trip had ended. We had an incredible time. We certainly appreciate you sharing your home with us. Please send me some cards and brochures as I have already had inquiries from people we have showed our pictures to. Thanks again,
Stacy Schreiner, Garland, TX
