"Absolutely beautiful yard!! The house was amazing and in a great location. The pool and outdoor grill space were awesome to have and we used them both a lot. Walking distance to the beach and to the fruit stand which was really awesome. We will definitely rent this property again!!"

"We were unsure where to stay in Costa Rica and just happened to come across Bahia Pez Vela at the last minute, and are we ever glad we did. What an amazing place. The villa has everything you will need on holiday. The kitchen is well appointed, the beds are very comfortable, and the eating area outside was great. It was very convenient having a washer and dryer in the villa. We spent many evening sitting outside as the weather was incredible. It gets dark early here and we were usually in bed by 9 pm but up at 5 and it already seemed that we had missed half of the day. Time is like that here. You can spend your day at the pool or at the beach, and Picante restaurant is wonderful. We ate here on several occasions. I have read reviews where they say that you don't need a vehicle, but I don't agree with that. Yes, there are taxis and buses, but it is so much more convenient to have an SUV (and you need an SUV on some of these roads). We went into Coco daily to pick up food or to have a meal. We also went on several day trips to Tamarindo, Arenal and Cortez Waterfalls. It is nicely located so all of these options are available.
We met several ex-pat Canadians while we were here. One of whom fished from our beach and the restaurant made a fresh Ceviche from the Parrot fish that he caught. The Howler monkeys were in the trees on the beach on several occasions, there were also raccoons and the crabs who lived in the hill going up above the villas were amusing. The water at the beach was very safe and we went snorkeling on several occasions. Several people staying at the resort were divers and went to Catalina Island which is very close.
I definitely recommend Casa Colina and Neil was a very responsive owner. We hope to be back soon."

"We really enjoyed our Christmas in Costa Rica. The condo is very spacious and has nice furniture and decorations. The kitchen is large and fully stocked. The condo is within walking distance to the beach and many other restaurants. The pool is relaxing and we loved breakfasts on the balcony.
The owners were helpful and we took several Sibu tours that were really fun as well.
I highly recommend this rental!"

Great condo, great property managers and unbeatable location
"My family of four spent five days at this condo. Pictures don't do it justice. Inside is modern, wifi strong and balcony view over the pool to the ocean is fantastic. You get to use all of the resort amentities which is a big plus. Location in the heart of Tamarindo is perfect to do and see whatever you want to do. Property managers were great to work with, even let us stay through the day or last day since we had a late flight and no one had rented it for the day we were leaving. Extremely nice and helpful. Provided for a wonderful vacation."
