My passion has been decorating and restoring interesting properties. While on vacation mayself in 2002 I discovered this villa and thought* A diamond in the rough* and fell in love with it's unique spanish colonial tropical design. Loving travel and newly retired I bought it and set out on restoring and decorating this unique villa.I saw a huge huge blank canvas. Since then I have traveled and brought many items back to furnish Casa Rancho . Everyone who has stayed says wow we love this place . I am happy that my tropical Ranch has something about it that instantly makes people feel ,yes they are on vacation in a tropical paradise. Written up in Cottage Country Magazine , it has drawn attention for its hot and sunny location . purchased this house in 2004

Why chose Costa Rica

This house is a secluded exotic oasis but close to all towns, beaches, golf courses and large hotels. This is wonderful place to vacation. Close to people but far enough away for privacy. relaxation and enjoying the garden .Time for fun make noise stay up all night , swimming and partying around the pool and pool house . it's all yours .to enjoy on this 4 acre estate property

What makes this house unique

Your friends and Family will enjoy watching all the colorful birds that come to sit in the huge GUANACASTA tree over looking the pool . Have fruit smoothy or enjoy a cool one while watching the radiant sunset .

Play the music loud , listen to the splash of the dive bombing birds , wait for the lizzards to come out to bask in the sunshine .

Sometimes a family of armadillo's can be seen sneaking into their burrow , or a monkey near by.

Great for special parties and occasions Casa Rancho is as exotic and tropical as it gets .

I took my family of 4 and another family of 6 over the summer for 2 weeks and it was the best beach vacation I've ever had. I've been to Hawaii, Mexico, Aruba, and most places in the Continental US but this surpassed them all. The house was tremendous! We had 6 children ranging from 4-13 and they loved it. It was especially nice because there was so much space that we weren't on top of each other. The pool was wonderful and we played games out at the Cabana each night. Getting Dicard to cook for us was the best advice that Janice gave us. He is a wonderful host and chef and was invaluable to helping us relax and enjoy our vacation. The access to the 3 beaches on property and the other 2 pools was such a blessing for our large group. I would recommend this to any large group vacationing in Costa Rica.

My November stay at Casa Rancho was fabulous. Just a short distance to the beach, so much privacy and pristine beauty. A magnificent place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Frequent afternoon dips in the beautiful pool kept us cool in style. The food was simple, delicious and well presented. A great place to get away from the usual tourist crowds. Would highly recommend Casa Rancho.
