  • Beautiful condo in a great location!

    "We stayed for 11 days back in June-July. The interior of the condo is beautiful- nice, modern wood furnishing (teak native to Costa Rica), great appliances (altho the ice dispenser in the fridge didn't work), roomy kitchen, nice stereo, great AC. The wireless internet is a bit weak, but works. E-mail and Facebook are fine, no Netflix. A couple of friends stayed in the second bedroom- it has its own bathroom and is on the opposite end of the unit. The listing and photos were accurate and up to date. The staff are very friendly and very on top of things and keep the place spotless. We arranged a few trips (definitely go zip lining at Arenal, Nicaragua was cool) through the front desk which worked out well. Sebastian recommended a great trip to Playas Minas, which is incredibly beautiful and empty during the week. We had the beach to ourselves. The management (Bob) was very straightforward, easy to deal with and responded promptly to inquiries. The location was a real winner as it was just far enough from town to not be crazy, but a very close walk. The last bit of road is not paved, but the beach is a better walk anyways. The condos on the water look outdated. Not this one- it's across the road from the beach, but you have access to Langosta Beach Club, a great facility- gym, large cabanas, large in-ground pool, and a great bar with good food (especially chipotle sauce). The staff is very friendly. There is also surfboards, paddleboards, and wakeboards available for rental and lessons. Nearby there are plenty of restaurants- we preferred the local type food. Nogui's has great seafood. The Italian place has great breakfast. The Argentinian place was okay, the milaneses were our favorite. We really enjoyed Vulcano also. We went fishing with Pedro, which was a small boat but a lot of fun and reasonably priced. We rented a car for the drive down, and stopped at the automercado, which is really a great store. It has a good selection of fish and meat, and a wide variety of beer. We didn't visit the store that is closer to the condo but were told it was more limited. We took a shuttle bus on the way back to the airport. The JetBlue lines were very short compared to others. Overall, we had a great time and were very pleased with condo, building, location, and beach club. We would definitely recommend / go back again- I didn't see anywhere nearby that looked as good. We were absolutely pleased with our choice."

  • Awesome!!! Just what we wanted for a Honeymoon

    "This place was great! We were not expecting much based on the price, but were greatly surprised at how awesome Mike and Irma's home is. The breakfasts were phenomenal...from plates of fruit that included papaya, star fruit, mangosteen, passion fruit, and pineapple, accompanied by "coffee thirty" and the best typical food we ate while in the country. I still need your recipe for the gallo pinto Irma! I could eat that daily with your fried plantains. The penthouse was very clean and comfortable. Views from the balcony and even the shower are missed already. We rented a car and explored the hidden treasures in the surrounding area and enjoyed the charm of the nearby Playa Danta, finding a local fisherman to get fresh Mahi Mahi, and access to hacienda and tours at El Viejo. We drove to Arenal for the second half of our journy and ran into difficulties with an acclaimed resort. The thought of driving the 4 hours back to your home would have been a reality had our travel agent not anwered their phone. Thank you for answering the dozens questions regarding the local culture and for going above and beyond to make us feel welcome and appreciated."

  • Hidden Gem in Paradise

    "I am a seasoned traveler, having stayed at many resorts, hotels, private rentals, etc. all over the world for both business and pleasure. We traveled to Barefoot Villa on October 27th, with my wife, daughter and her two university girlfriends for a period of 1 week. We found BV to be everything it was described as, and more. It is set on a dead end road surrounded by lush green trees and flora native to the region, tranquil and quiet, conveniently located close to town and spectacular Guiones Beach. We were treated to the marvelous cooking of Nina; 3 healthy locally inspired meals a day, with fresh meats we purchased at the pescaderia (fish market), and local general market nearby. Everything else was provided prior to our arrival for off the shelf value plus a 20% service fee. Well worth the price and reasonable daily rate (we saved a small fortune by avoiding the restaurant option). We also procured the cleaning services of Laura 3 times during the week (one was included with the rental), which again was well worth the modest rate. Both ladies were well tipped for their awesome efforts. The house itself was spectacular; elegant and practical, with abundant space for the five of us. Angie has taken great care of ensuring all instructions, tips, local contacts, and everyday living details are carefully documented and accessible. We felt at home right away, and comfortably secure with the comprehensive yet easy to use security system. Our method of transportation was private shuttle from and to Liberia Airport, and 2 ATVs rented from David at Harbor Reef Hotel for local daily outings. This provided us with amazing opportunities to get to know the local area and beyond, without having to necessarily stay on the main roads. Angie has negotiated a discount with David's Guiones Beach Gear which made the ATV rentals very reasonable and far cheaper than a local car rental. Barefoot Villa also offers 3 bikes, 2 surfboards and a couple of boogie boards which were well used every day. All in all I would rate Barefoot Villa as one of our very top vacation rentals, in a spectacular and so far secluded region of amazing Costa Rica. We will be going back! I am happy to provide a personal reference, you can get my contact information from Angie."

Guanacaste Travel Tips

Guanacaste Beach Rentals Give You the Real Costa Rica

If you are looking for long summer days on beautiful coastlines, Guanacaste beach rentals are for you. Vacations in Costa Rica can be filled with activities, sun, and sand. Enjoy the stunning shoreline, top-notch surfing, snorkeling, and so much more when you stay at Guanacaste resorts. The province is the perfect vacation destination for the whole family or the ideal spot for a romantic honeymoon.

Breathtaking Vistas within the Guanacaste Resorts Regions

All along the eastern borders of the province you will find a chain of volcanoes, many of which are visible from some Guanacaste beach rentals. The volcanoes meet the Cordillera de Tilaran and Cordillera de Guanacaste mountain ranges and offer plenty of hiking, mountain biking, and other high elevation activities. The views in this region are particularly breathtaking, especially when you reach Rincon de la Vieja Volcano Area with its lush forests filled with exotic plants and animals. No one ever said vacations in Costa Rica would not be gorgeous!

Vacations in Costa Rica Offer a Little Culture

As you plan your stay in Guanacaste resorts, you might appreciate learning a little bit about the local culture. The region is rich in culture and even takes its name from the word “quahnacaztlan” which is actually the word for the Guanacaste tree in the native language. This tree also happens to be the national tree of the country. Vacations here, especially those at Guanacaste beach rentals, will allow you the opportunity to see what the real Costa Rica is all about.

The Best Way to Reach Your Guanacaste Beach Rentals

Because it is a foreign country, vacations in Costa Rica do take some planning. The easiest way to reach Guanacaste resorts is to fly into Liberia and land at the Daniel Oduber International Airport. From the airport, you may either rent a car or take a bus through Guanacaste up the Pan-American Highway which is quite scenic. You will even catch a glimpse of the volcanoes on your way.
