About Scott and Meyling Sanford

I am a retired physician. My wife Meyling was the office manager in our office in Odessa, Texas. Meyling is from Nicaragua. She studied forestry engineering there prior to coming to the US. We now have moved to the hill country of Texas were we enjoy bicycle riding and travel. Meyling and I first met in Costa Rica so it is a very special place for us. We continue to visit Costa Rica frequently and can't seem to get enough of the wonderful country. Sometimes we just visit our villa to relax and rejuvenate and other times we use it as a home base to explore something new in this amazing country.

Scott and Meyling Sanford purchased this Villa in 2003

There was plenty of room for the six of us. We loved being so close to the pool. Also the walk to the beach was short and not difficult. We loved seeing and hearing the monkeys right across the street. Also birds visited us on the balcony every morning. The staff in the office were very accommodating. In addition we made friends with the neighbors in the two villas next door who were very helpful in suggesting places to visit and restaurants. We would definitely return here!!! Thanks😍�😍�

                                                                        We could not imagine a better location or accommodation. The house is perfect, lots of room, bright, fresh, with every convenience and with a view that is amazing. the pool is right beside the house and the ocean is spread out in front. The best restaurant in the areas is 5 minutes walk. We would highly recommend this house, it was a great start on a perfect vacation for us.

                                                                        This property was in a perfect location- beachfront, million dollar view

                                                                        Bob B.

                                                                        We had a wonderful stay at this beachfront property at Playa Ocotal. The view from the deck and watching a variety of birds and small wildlife every morning and evening were highlights of our time in Costa Rica. The property had a million dollar view from the deck and a short walk from the beach and the property's largest swimming pool.

                                                                        At night we heard the eerie sounds of Howler Monkeys and the last morning there, we found them in some trees a couple hundred yards down the beach. The beach was great for beachcombing and snorkeling and was also fine for swimming in the refreshing clear and clean water. Just a short walk away we enjoyed dining at Father Rooster's beach restaurant, and a short drive away we found good dining and shopping in Playa Coco.

                                                                        This property was a 30 minute or so drive from Liberia Airport. WE would definitely stay here again. It was perfect for 2 couples and had a third bedroom as well.

                                                                        Hi Bob,

                                                                        We are gratified to hear that you and your party enjoyed you stay with us. We are very lucky indeed to have an abode in such a paradise. Last time we were there the monkeys walked across the street towards Los Almendros, walked by the swimming pool, one with baby in tow, and then climbed the trees to make their way up the mountain. Also we enjoy having Father Rooster near by. Hope you get to return to Costa Rica again one day.

                                                                        Absolutely an Amazing Vacation Stay

                                                                        Rose H.

                                                                        We had a great time at this condo in Los Almendros. It is an amazing place to stay. The inside space was very roomy and well supplied with what we needed. The owners and staff were very accommodating and the security is excellent. We liked the well supplied, large and functional kitchen that allowed us to cook our own meals from time to time. We were steps away from a great swimming pool and within a short walking distance from a most beautiful cove where we snorkeled, hiked and enjoyed the atmosphere. Perhaps the best part was the awesome sunset views over the Pacific from a well situated and large balcony. I highly recommend this condo for a relaxing and care free stay.

                                                                        Love it.

This is an ideal family/romatic beach. Rocket Frog, which has an office at the complex main office, will assist you in arranging snorkeling and diving. Diving lessons are available. Father Rooster, a beach front restaurant and bar, is only steps from the complex. In a short drive you can reach multiple beautiful national parks (including Rincon de la Vieja), the spectacular volcano and lake at Arenal, and the highly proclaimed cloud forest at Monteverde.
