Property description

Villa Toucan is a Three Bedroom villa with 2.5 bathrooms nestled in a secluded cove 25 minutes from Liberia's International Airport
Within a short drive there are ample opportunities for all the activities Costa Rica is known for: hiking, birdwatching, canoeing, white water rafting, canopy tours, turtle watching, hot spring hopping, monkeying around with monkeys, wildlife watching, coffee plantation tours, mountain biking, horseback riding and more.

The Villa is steps from the beach in the Bahia Pez Vela Resort next to Playa Octotal and 5 kilometers from Playa del Coco. This resort is the ONLY property on this secluded beach that has an abundance of peace and quiet. This villa is one of the beach area villas (second row from beach) so it is an easy, less than a minute, walk to the beach, main pool and restaurant. You can hear waves of the Pacific and chatter of the howler monkeys in the nearby trees from this fully equipped two level home and see Hummingbirds check out the flowers we've planted just for them. You'll also have unlimited access to our small gated community's two pools, restaurant and sea kayaks. The resort has wireless internet, accessible from the villa.

At low tide, you can walk to Playa Ocotal which is a bigger beach and has a few restaurants and hotels. It's otherwise a quick (5 km) drive to Playa Coco which is a bustling town with tons of water sports, restaurants and shops. There are plentiful activities near the villa including scuba diving, fishing, snorkeling, whale watching, bird watching, and canopy tours. You can even get a massage on the beach.

Villa has a living room, full kitchen and dining area, outdoor patio with bbq and three bedrooms/2.5 baths. One BR has a king bed, private bathroom and outdoor balcony. The second bedroom is perfect for a family with kids or just kids having 3 twin beds . The third BR has a queen bed and fold out couch (folds into a large twin/small double). The living room couch also folds into a queen bed and we have an air mattress that can be inflated for one more soul. Villa also has air conditioning, washing machine and dryer, microwave, dvd player, wireless internet and dishwasher.

Villa Toucan is within 1.5 hour drive of three volcanoes
(Tenorio, Miravalles and Ricon de la Vieja), several national
parks (Palo Verde, Ricon de la Vieja, Tenorio, Santa Rosa,
Playa Grande) and dozens of day trip activities including
bird watching, canopy tours, fishing, horseback riding, rafting, hiking, scuba diving, and turtle watching. The two Costa Rica
pre-emiminent tourist destinations: Arenal Volcano and
Monteverde Cloud Forest are a 2-3 hour drive away. The concierge at Bahia Pez Vela can arrange all of these excursions and activities. Or just sit at the beach, enjoy the peace and quiet, get a massage and do nothing. Whatever suits you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We live in Washington, D.C. where Liz works for the Justice Department as an environmental prosecutor and Henry writes childrens' books, practices law from the house, and takes care of our two children, Hannah and Jonah (ages 7 and 9 in 2009).

Why the Owner Chose Playa Ocotal:
We wanted a place that was secluded and relaxing but also had outdoor and cultural attractions nearby. The fact it's only 25 minutes from an international airport was also a big draw.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The resort is quiet and secluded and very relaxing. If you're looking for a party scene then this is not for you. But for families with kids and couples it's a wonderful place to just kick back. You can even get a massage on the beach while listening to breaking waves and howler monkeys. Then again, if you get tired of all that peace and quiet and want to see and do stuff all the activities Costa Rica offers are very nearby: horseback riding, hiking, zip lining, scuba-diving, rafting, volcanoing, hot springs, etc.
