Property description

Villa 19 is especially well situated within the beautiful Los Almendros complex at Playa Ocotal, a beautiful secluded beach resort on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. The view from our patio is excellent with stunning sunsets and views of miles and miles of coastline. Only steps from our home is one of the complexes 3 swimming pools which itself offers panoramic views. Also adjacent to our villa is a covered deck with barbecue facilities. The unit has covered parking and additional parking is adjacent.

A few steps from the main entrance and you are on Playa Ocotal, a beautiful, protected beach with areas of both black and white sand. This is a safe beach, ideal for swimming, snorkeling and relaxing. Diving and fishing are readily available. Midway along the beach is the popular 'Father Rooster' for casual dining. There are numerous places to dine in nearby (3 miles away) Playa Coco.

You can just relax in this paradise enjoying the scenery and sounds of the ocean or have an active vacation enjoying some of the many activities described below.

Our villa is air conditioned and recently renovated throughout. The totally new kitchen is complete with appliances and utensils. Groceries can be purchased in nearby Coco. The newly refurnished living room offers great views, cable TV with DVD, telephone, wireless internet, and a laptop on which we have placed shortcuts to helpful websites. Also in the living room you'll find a brochure in which we provide useful information and ideas to enhance your stay. The 3 bedrooms also are air conditioned and equipped with ceiling fans. The master opens onto the patio. All three bedrooms are ocean side and offer the calming sound of incoming waves. The Master bed is equipped with a band new Tempur Pedic mattress!!!

Los Almendros is a safe, beautifully landscaped beach front development. At 43 units it has a small friendly feel. The complex is gated and guarded 24 hours per day. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable. Laundry service is available. Maid service is provided on a daily basis to our guests in #19 for change in linens, etc. A large percentage of the visitors here are not new - a testimony to the lure of Los Almendros. Los Almendros has Ocotal's lowest beachfront rental rates and highest customer satisfaction rating.

Within close proximity to Los Almendros many other activities are available. Fishing, Scuba Diving, Snorkeling and other ocean tours depart daily from Playa Ocotal. Closeby you will find golf, surfing, canopy tours, shopping, river rafting, horseback riding and many other activities. Within 3 hours is located the majestic rain forest of Monteverde and even closer is the famed Arenal Volcano, Lake and Hot Springs.

I encourage you to view the Los Almendros de Ocotal websites (links below) for an excellent review of the many activities available with spectacular photos of the area.

When we return from a visit to Los Almendros we feel relaxed and renewed. Here we can find the right mix of rest/relaxation and outdoor activities/excitement. Hope you too can enjoy this magical place!

Car: Recommended

Los Almendros is located on Playa Ocotal, a safe, protected, private beach. The surf is generally calm. This is an ideal family/romatic beach. Rocket Frog, which has an office at the complex main office, will assist you in arranging snorkeling and diving. Diving lessons are available. Father Rooster, a beach front restaurant and bar, is only steps from the complex. In a short drive you can reach multiple beautiful national parks (including Rincon de la Vieja), the spectacular volcano and lake at Arenal, and the highly proclaimed cloud forest at Monteverde.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: I am a retired physician. My wife Meyling was the office manager in our office in Odessa, Texas. Meyling is from Nicaragua. She studied forestry engineering there prior to coming to the US. We now have moved to the hill country of Texas were we enjoy bicycle riding and travel. Meyling and I first met in Costa Rica so it is a very special place for us. We continue to visit Costa Rica frequently and can't seem to get enough of the wonderful country. Sometimes we just visit our villa to relax and rejuvenate and other times we use it as a home base to explore something new in this amazing country.

Why Playa Ocotal:
In addition to all of the benefits offered by an ocean front villa, we find our place to be a great home base for visiting new places in Costa Rica. Each time we get to visit our villa at Los Almendros, we use it as a spring board to see something new in this wonderful country of Costa Rica. We appreciate your feedback so we can continue to improve and add new amenities. Our latest additions include a wireless network and a desk top computer with websites to help you with closeby activities located under favorites. Also we've just completed a complete renovation of the villa with new kitchen and new furnishings throughout the villa. Los Almendros is blessed with having an excellent management - they are anxious to help guests in any way. Playa Ocotal is small and intimate beach good for family and couples. Activities abound. Playa Coco - only 10 minutes away - has restaurants and shopping. The Liberia International Airport is only 40 minutes from Los Almendros.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We love to visit our Villa at Los Almendros. It offers all the benefits of an ocean front villa - the pacifying sound of the waves as you drift off to sleep, myriads of beach related activities, romantic sunsets, cookouts with friends and family, etc. It offers us comfortable easy living and gives us a great respite from the responsibilities of daily life in America. Playa Ocotal offers some of Guanacaste's best snorkeling and world class diving and fishing is at your disposal. Our villa is only steps away from a great swimming pool and from the beach in. Dining is readily available on the beach at Father Rooster. For more information on Los Almendros de Ocotal I would direct you to: losalmendrosocotal.com
