Property description

BEACHRONT. PRIVATE JETTED POOL. FREE WIFI. NEWLY REMODELED KITCHEN.

Villa Las Olas is one of four beachfront homes in a secluded and secure development of 40 privately-owned homes. A private, jetted pool, Italian stone and wood patio, and 'next to the forest' location (end villa) distinguishes Villa Las Olas for its luxury and its privacy. At the same time, our home provides everything you need for a comfortable and easy stay. Its spacious dimensions provide ample room for larger groups, but are still intimate enough for traveling twosomes. Two of the three generously sized bedrooms are ocean-front, which makes our set-up ideal for more than one couple or family. The newly remodeled (April 2015) and fully equipped kitchen provides options for meals and entertaining, and the convenience of a full-size washer and dryer is great for families with children and for adults who travel light. Furnishings are fresh and tropical, but also practical and child-worthy. Beach towels, boogie boards, and buckets for sand castles are provided!

The villa is air-conditioned (mini-splits in each of the bedroom for individual control), and each room has screens and an overhead fan to enjoy the pleasant ocean breezes and sounds of this tropical paradise.

The master bedroom has King bed, a balcony with rocking chairs that overlooks the ocean, full closet, cable television and an attached private full bath. The second bedroom is also ocean front, and has two full beds, cable television, a dresser and full closet. It is a large and airy room. The third bedroom has two twin beds that can convert to a king, a dresser, space for the infant 'Pack and Play' bed and changing table, cable television, and a garden view.

The main level has a very open lay-out with French doors to the pool and beach from both the living room and the dining room. The living room includes a comfortable sleeper sofa, two matching chairs, and cable television. The dining room seats six. The newly remodeled and fully-equipped kitchen is spacious, airy and well lit. It includes a breakfast 'bar' that seats four, french door refrigerator with ice maker, High end cook top, built in oven, dishwasher and microwave. All appliances are stainless steel and manufactured by KitchenAid and GE. Directly off the kitchen is the laundry with a full washer and dryer, an iron and ironing board, and a safe for your valuables.

Whale-watching, world class fishing and diving, as well as good old wave bobbing and boogey boarding, are available just steps from the pool and patio of our home. The sea provides constant entertainment, be it the delight of seeing silver rays fly out of the water and whales breech or, closer in, watching brown pelicans dive for their lunch or lively tide pools, and making temporary pets of hermit crabs. We love sitting on our deck overlooking the sea with our morning Costa Rican coffee, and waiting for the green flash as the evening sun sinks below the horizon.

Our on-site concierge is available to help you make arrangements for your Costa Rican adventures. Ziplining, hot springs, wildlife tours and cloud forest visits are popular, but don’t forget the cooking schools, horseback rides, paddle-boarding and beach-side massages! Of course, you never need to leave home for the best snorkeling around – it’s right outside your door! So is the best food in the area. The romantic and open-air beachside setting of the our restaurant is the perfect backdrop for its delicious, innovative and beautifully presented selection of North American and Costa Rican dishes. And our chefs are happy to deliver your meals to the villa and to prepare your catch after a long day of fishing!

If yours is a working vacation, fear not. FREE WIRELESS BROADBAND is available throughout our home AND the outdoor patio, and cellular service is exceptional. Our reception office can assist with basic office needs. No one will know you have escaped to paradise.

Car: Not Necessary

This is a secluded and very secure development of only 40 homes. The very private ebony beach provides world class snorkeling, calm waters for swimming, and fascinating tide pools that are full of sea life. The grounds are immaculate and feature a large grassy lawn between the villa and the beach, beautifully maintained blooming shrubs and flowers, and mature trees. The wildlife is abundant -- howler monkeys frequently munch the leaves from the trees in front of the villa, green parakeets chatter as they dart from one tree to another, blue green mot mots show off frequently, and the occasional blue jay, iguana and gecko can be spotted. If you can tear yourself away from the beach and your private pool, the nearby town of Coco is lively, fun and safe. Golf at Papagayo Golf in Sardinal, or go a bit further to Hacienda Pinillas or the Four Seasons. Spend a half day deep sea fishing and bring yellow fin tuna, grouper and snapper home to the chef at the property's on-site restaurant for special treatment. Great diving is can be arranged in Coco, as can sail boat and catamaran adventures. Venture inland to Volcan Arenal or Rincon de la Vieja and take in ziplines, volcanic mud baths and hot springs, white water rafting and horseback rides in the high country. Drive the 'Monkey Trail' to beaches to the south, including Ostional for early morning turtle hatching or Avellana and Negra for their surfing. All this within 25 minutes of the airport!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We're a recently retired couple who visited this property with our children over spring break for more than 10 consecutive years. Our children always insisted it was better than Disney and better than Hawaii! Now that we have more time to spend in Paradise, we bought and hope to keep making memories with our adult children. We are delighted to share our lovely home with you, and we will work hard to assure that you enjoy it as much as we have!

Why the Owner Chose Playa Ocotal:
We love what the property offers -- beautiful ebony beach with fantastic swimming, snorkeling and tide-pooling; professional and friendly staff; great food in a romantic setting; wonderful pools; a casual vibe; and close proximity to the fun town of Coco and the new airport. We visited for at least a week every year for more than a decade, and after the first visit could never get our children to consider a different spring break location! We felt lucky to be able to purchase Villa Las Olas. We always admired its large infinity pool, beachfront location, lush gardens, and welcome privacy. The view of the sea from the quiet stone patio cannot be beat. The home comes with unique evening entertainment -- we love watching the howler monkey family that comes to the trees late in the afternoon to dine on leaves! We are enjoying our new home immensely!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beach front spacious two level home with a private jetted infinity pool and access to the development's two additional pool complexes. On-site concierge, restaurant, and 24-hour security staff caters to all our needs as if we were family. Fishing boat and dive tour operators pick us up on the beach in front of our home! But mainly, we enjoy the unique serenity and privacy of the resort and our home's location -- while the fun beach town of Coco is just three miles away if we want more action!
