  • Excellent location to the beach and restaurants.

    "We spent a week in this beautiful home in March, 2014. We are a family of 4 and the place was more than enough for us, spacious rooms and closets, great open kitchen and great family room. The L-shape couch in the family room is very comfortable! In the morning we had our breakfast outside and enjoyed the beautiful view of Ocotal, then we would walk to the beach, just 2 minutes away. In the afternoon, we enjoyed the pool next to the restaurant, (there are plenty of pools around the complex). there is also a children's pool. The restaurant is just perfect, they cooked specially for us since we had some dietary demands for the baby (4 month old) and my 5 year old. My husband went fishing one of the days and caught enough fish for dinner, which they happily cooked in the restaurant for us. Downtown is about 8 minutes away by car and we went to the supermarket a few times during the week to buy food, there is also a private clinic and ambulance services and pharmacy. The hospital is about 40 minutes nearby, which was important to know since we traveled with a newborn. There are other beaches nearby, Ocotal, Playa del Coco, Conchal, Playa Hermosa, Sugar Beach, etc.. within 20 minutes or less from each other. This home is located on top of the hill with gives a better view of the ocean and it made us feel better than being in front of the ocean. We would definitely return next winter (we live in the northeast USA) if the property is still available. Dealing with Anthony, the owner, was easy and efficient. We would recommend this property to anyone who wants a great vacation in beautiful Costa Rica and beaches."

  • Wonderful Stay!!!

    "We visited Costa Rica last year and decided we would like to visit again. We came across this place and decided to give it a try. The property exceeded our expectations from the pictures. It is beautiful and peaceful. The Property Manager was very helpful and the check in/out process was quick and smooth. Loved having 24-hour security, they walk the entire property constantly 24-hours. Vince, the owner, gave us so much information, there was little left to research. It was nice to come back to a beautiful, clean, and comfortable home away from home after our touring, diving/snorkeling adventures. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend it to anyone."

  • Great Stay!

    "My family (brother, brother’s fiancée, father) and myself went to Costa Rica for vacation. After spending some time in the rainforest we headed to the beach. We stayed in villa 19 at Los Almendros and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The views out the back of the villa were amazing, overlooking the water. The villa was clean and modern and air conditioned – which after days in the jungle, hot and wet, being cool and dry was wonderful! The villa is well stocked with entertainment choices (flat screen tv, wifi, computer, books, movies etc.) in case you need some time inside. The kitchen is ready to cook in and easy to find items in – always a plus. There were also lots of little things to make your stay nicer like plenty of towels, a hairdryer, safe, and access to the washer and dryer. All the pillows and beds were comfortable and everyone in our group was comfortable temperature wise since each room had its own A/C unit. The sound of crashing waves lulled us to sleep every night. A few steps down from the villa is the sparkling pool, complete with lounging hammocks under shades. Just a bit further down the hill is the main entrance where you’ll find security and the dive shop. If you continue walking from there you’ll find yourself at Father Rooster’s (a restaurant and bar) on the beach. It’s probably about a 5 minute walk from the back door of the villa to the beach. A short drive down the road is Playas del Coco where you will find tourist shops, dive shops, restaurants, the grocery store etc. It’s a very short drive. We did scuba from Coco, we saw sharks, a ray, tons of fish and generally had a great time. I would highly recommend this villa as a base of operations for your costal explorations in Costa Rica!"

  • Great trip with amazing hosts!

    "We couldn't have asked for a better vacation with such ease. Pam was great to work with and every question/concern was addressed within minutes. The villa was amazing and had a beautiful view. It was also a short 3 minute walk to black sand beaches and a fun beach bar Father Roosters. The staff, Louis and Walter were amazing and couldn't have been more fun and accomodating. Thanks for an amazing trip, we can't wait to come back soon!"
