About the property

Condo, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Great for families or couples- Villa Las Olas is one of those properties that you will want to return to year after year, as many of our clients do. It might be the spacious five bedrooms, or the covered balcony with private 12 person plunge pool. Or it could be the full kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. It could be the tropical pool with waterfall and swim up bar. Or it could be the location, steps from the beach and the world famous Father Roosters beachfront grill.

Many of our friends and family stay at Villa Las Olas, so we strive to make it a one of kind experience. Our well appointed linens and furniture will make you feel at home.

If you want to spend your day at the beach or the pool, go adventuring, see the volcano, play tennis or sip tropical drinks this Pacific hideaway is the perfect place for you.

Villa Las Olas also offers exclusive use of The Club at CocoBay, the private Beach Club located just a short walk walk from the condo and Tennis and Fitness Center.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gina-

I feel remiss that I have not contacted you to tell you what a wonderful time we had in Costa Rica in November. Your condo was amazingly comfortable and accommodated our group perfectly. We loved the club and enjoyed the beach and a river cruise. Thanksgiving day our daughter took us to a wonderful French restaurant where they served an American Thanksgiving dinner, but with panache! I can’t say enough about the staff down there and how responsive they were when we had our plumbing issue. They fixed everything promptly and the remainder of our stay could not have been more enjoyable and relaxing.

Thanks again for you Hospitality!

Had a wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 family members stay for a week and everything was great. Plenty of room, balcony was great, loved having a full kitchen & laundry. The wifi was a little spotty at times, but probably to be expected. Short walk to the beach and was nice having Father Roosters so close to walk to. The beach was great, black sand so it gets hot at times!! But surf was not too high, so nice for smaller children. You will need a car or to call a taxi to get to the grocery store, but it is a short drive into town. Overall worked out great!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 stayed here for a fantastic getaway to Costa Rica. The owner and staff attended to all our needs before we arrived and during our stay - extremely helpful getting us set up to enjoy the location (Playa Ocotal is a good home base) and surrounding attractions. Really enjoyed the Beach club located by Father Roosters and the one by the office more than we expected. Was perfect for the youngest grand kids. Listen to owners recommendations of what to do, and where to eat - they were spot on. Diamante Eco-Adventure Park is about ½ hour away from condo and a must do. The zip lines, ATV rides and animal sanctuary are best in class. The food was excellent and there was more to do then we had time for. We had Coco Tours Shuttle pick us up at the airport and ended up hiring the driver to take on a Palo Verde Boat expedition. This was another highlight I highly recommend. Having a local take you around and show you the sights along the way to and back from your destination allows you to see and appreciate Costa Rica at it's best. We stayed for 12 nights and left wishing we had more time to do repeats of what we did do and other items on lists that will have to wait till next time!

I almost forgot to mention how wonderful it was to sit on the balcony at sunrise and sunset to listen to the wildlife and enjoy the view.

Fantastic Location for the family

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids) and spent two weeks at Villa Las Olas. This is a great location in a quiet community of Ocotal. The villa was spacious and very comfortable for the eight of us - kids made use of the small "cooling off" jacuzzi on the balcony as well as the outdoor pool. We were walking distance to the beach as well as the Beach club where there was an infinity pool for our use. Kids loved the beach and thats where they spent most of their time. Father Rooster is right on the beach - very convenient if you dont want to get in the car to get to a restaurant. We had two cars - which we recommend if you want to explore the area. We spent a lot of time visiting Coco (restaurants and groceries) and exploring the Guantacasa area. The villa comes with everything you need (towels, washer/dryer, hairdryers, coffee machine, blender, dishes,pots, pans, etc... As well as a Flatscreen in the family room and WIFI. On a few occasions when we were exhausted, we utilized the TV and WIFI to watch some movies. WIFI connection wasnt working when we first arrived but response was quick when we notified the owners. It was intermittent when it was working but I think thats normal in this area. We will miss waking up, making our coffee and sitting on the balcony in the morning enjoying the wonderful view of Ocotal! This place was heaven! Highly recommend this villa for a family!!

Villas Las Olas

  • 4 of 5

Overall good experience. Friendly and helpful agents. Wished layout of place was better as no living area on first floor; not very open. Beautiful view 2nd floor. Biggest issue and danger is the steep entrance to driveway/ garage; scraped bumper few times. Problems with shower temperatures and water pressure, but willing to have it fixed. Miss heat in hot tub/ jacuzzi. Main reason we stayed here was access to beach and fair price. Must do Rincon La Vieja Volcano Tour recommended by owners; best deal ever!

Ocotal dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in playa Ocotal at our villa with 5 bedrooms. We swam everyday at the beach or in one of the 3 pools available. The weather was warm, the ocean delightful and services were excellent. If something needed attention in our villa, response was very quick. We had a great time on the tour to Guachepelin where we zip lined, floated on an exciting white water river in tubes, rode horses and took mud baths and soaked in hot springs. Ocotal is a great place for people of all ages.

Happy Birthday To ME!

Review #11182274 “A great way to spend a birthday! ”

In January I had a group of people gather to celebrate my birthday. I had the privilege of staying at Villa Las Olas in Playa Ocotal which felt like home the entire time. The views were spectacular and the management was very accommodating and helpful going the extra mile to help us book some adventure days! There is so much to do in the area there wasn't enough time! Sunset boat days to waterfalls and surfing there was so much playing we didn't want to miss that we had so remind ourselves to rest. This was easy to do at the Beach Club that has an eternity pool, lounge chairs and shade right on the beach and next to an amazing restaurant Father Roosters. I could not have asked for a better week. Thank you so much for making your house a home
