Tarcoles villa description

LOCATED 3 MINUTES FROM ENTRANCE OF CARARA NATIONAL PARK!!!!!!

Why settle for an 500 square foot room in a hotel, when you can relax in a spacious 2,700 square foot private villa with private pool.

LOCATION:
Casa Tica Linda is conveniently located only 33 miles from the international airport in San Jose and on the popular Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Casa Tica Linda is located a few miles north of Herradura Beach and and the bustling popular tourist destination of Jaco Beach. As soon as you enter the front door, you are greeted with a panoramic view of the rainforest covered mountain located on the opposite bank of the beautiful Tarcolitos River.

ACCOMMODATIONS:
Casa Tica Linda is absolutely perfect for one, two or three couples or a large family.
3 private Master Suites, each with a king bed, a spacious bathroom.
Walk-in closets and lots of storage space.

The Butterfly Suite features a panoramic view of the surrounding rainforest and private access to the pool and deck.

The Macaw Suite has a private patio and waterfall fountain.

The Toucan Suite has views of the rainforest, access to the backyard and pool, and a jetted tub and shower combination.

KITCHEN/DINING:
The spacious combined kitchen and dining room make it the perfect space for all guests to gather for meals, games, etc. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and features granit counter tops and new stainless steel appliances. A whisper quiet washer and dryer are conveniently located in a closet off the dining room. The kitchen/dining room offers views of the pool and the surrounding rainforest.

LIVING ROOM:
The living room features seating for six and includes a 42” LCD flat screen HDTV with cable and DVD/CD. As in the dining room, the living room has views of the pool and rainforest.

EXPERIENCE THE SERENITY OF THE RAINFOREST:
If you want to stay in the middle of the hustle and bustle and nightlife of nearby Jaco Beach, then Casa Tica Linda is not for you. However, if you want to experience the real Costa Rican tropical rainforest with the unique opportunity of spotting the rare Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, monkeys, etc. from the privacy of your own private pool and deck, then Casa Tica Linda is your ticket to a tropical paradise.

NEARBY AMENITIES AND ACTIVITIES:
The private serenity of Casa Tica Linda is only 15 to 20 minutes from the Los Suenos Resort and all of its amenities as well as the exciting nightlife, restaurants, and shopping of Jaco Beach, one of the most popular tourist and surfing destinations of all Costa Rica. It is also just minutes away from Carara National Park, Pura Vida Gardens, the Tarcoles River where you can book tours to view crocodiles and birds. There are also several near-by canopy tours with zip lines, hikes with hanging bridges, rainforest trams, golf, world-class sport fishing, surfing, fine dining, and casinos.

SECURITY: Equipped with an ADT security system.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: Our names are Steve and Bobbie Sheets. We live in Round Rock, Texas, which is just 20 miles north of Austin. I am an attorney and Bobbie is retired after over 20 years of teaching eighth grade English. We have one son, Travis. The bird's name is Blue Boy who leads a pampered life at Pura Vida Gardens, which is just 10 minutes up the mountain from our house in Costa Rica.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tarcoles:
                          This is actually our second vacation rental property in Costa Rica. We decided to purchase this property as an investment because we have fallen in love with Costa Rica in general and the Central Pacific Coast area in particular. Casa Tica Linda is located right next door to our other property VRBO #228323 which helps in the management and offers our guests with larger families or groups the option of two adjacent properties.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          The best thing about this property is that it has three private master suites. This allows three couples to vacation together and share costs without sacrificing their privacy. Because the villa wraps around the pool on three sides, the pool and deck become part of the living space. It is so peaceful to relax on the deck and simply enjoy the sights and sounds of the river and surrounding rainforest.
