About Anthony Giacone

My wife and I purchased our home in Costa Rica 2005 we traveled here every year with our whole family. We found it was very safe and the reason we bought is so my kids can walk right down to the pool and ocean every morning and never have to worry. We've had many years of enjoyment here and we're hoping we can share it with other families. Thank you

The villa was as pictured, roomy enough for eight of us to not feel cramped.

  • 5 of 5

The beds were pretty comfortable, the unit was quiet and the different rising times didn’t interfere with the ones who wanted to sleep in a little. The kitchen was spacious for a couple of people to help with meals. We cooked a few times starting with the first breakfast of chorizos on the BBQ with scrambled eggs and peppers on the stove top made into breakfast burritos. We brought the two chairs from the annex and sat eight around the dining table comfortably. Lots of options for restaurants when we didn’t want to cook or were out on the road.

We ate well, the weather was great and so was the scenery. The first couple of days we got lost until we found the right CR road app that sent us only to passable roads- google maps took us to the shortest routes but a bad storm a little while before we arrived meant those were very often washed out.

The staff of the resort were all friendly and helpful. The pools were crystal clear and the food was excellent. The restaurant had changed hands and name but the new chef prepared one of the best ceviche that my daughter and boyfriend have had and they have eaten it all over the world. The four younger ones of our party went there for supper one night and each had a different dish- nothing but complements...

Three of us went scuba diving with Rocket Frog Divers - unfortunately the visibility was not great but they liked the dive master and team ( my daughter and friend are licensed adventure divers who live in coastal Australia so they may be spoiled..). We went to Rincon de la Vieja and hiked, saw the rescued wildlife at Diamanté ( a little pricey but the animals are very well housed and taken care of), walked and Zip- lined at Monteverde with the SKY company- the drive to the canopy forest is long ( and quite an experience going up to that height)but we stopped to see the falls at Bagaces and made a day of it. A great week making memories..thank you to Anthony for responding so quickly when our flight arrival was delayed by five hours due to broken fan blade, and thank you for having such a comfortable place for our family and friends to hang out!

Best Honeymoon Ever

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect! There are amazing views everywhere. We spent so much time on the balcony just enjoying the weather and views. The place is spotless. It was very convenient to go to town to pick up groceries and cook in the kitchen that had everything we needed. If we didn't feel like cooking, the restaurant on site was super yummy. Also, the staff on site were very helpful ordering us a cab when needed. The beds are very comfortable, and there's lots of space for clothes. It helped us a lot to have the full washer/dryer. Being able to walk to the private beach or pools is also a plus. You don't have to worry about crowds and it's an easy walk back to your own place. We spent a lot of time relaxing at the house, pool, beach where we could walk, but another beach town with more shops and restaurants was only 10 minutes away. We definitely want to go back.

We had an amazing honeymoon stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect for two people spending their first time in Costa Rica. The villa was so spacious and the air conditioning was great to help escape the sun. Since it was our honeymoon everyone told us we had to do a million things but we just wanted to enjoy the house the whole time. We spent every morning drinking coffee on the balcony and watching the waves. How can you beat having a beach and pool in the same property? We already want to go back! Thanks for sharing your property with us.

Best trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing. Awesome view from the master bedroom. We did everything. Zip line, sunset cruse. Volcanic mud bath etc. Restaurants and the fishing was off the charts. I would recommend and have to many of my friends staying at casa Giacone. It was the trip of a lifetime. Five stars all the way.

Excellent location to the beach and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

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.
