My passion is ever changing and has becomne a project in the resort community . Startingas a large open spanish hacienda , it has now evolved to a quaint peacful , relaxed , enternatiment hub.

OUR rooms are large and all have bathrooms , always in the design of new colors and decor. everychanging to keep up with the guests wishes.

This season is about to become our most exotic and interesting of all. With the unique addition of a SEA TURTLE resturant for special evening dinning and events a true easy location for the area. Dicard'ss specialty dishes as per reservation are based on fresh local veggies and fish and chicken purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why chose Guanacaste

The Spanish VIlla is a exotic oasis but close to town, beaches, golf courses and large hotels. A fun place for a 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 arrange for a evening meal at SEA TURTLE resturant reserved for your group staying at the VIlla. IT will be a tropical blast , specialty drinks , fine food , music and just party time. Make sure you are also included in the ESTABLOS curtural horse show and buffet dinner anothe runique feature , coming this season.

What makes this farmhouse unique

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

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 HOWLERING loud and talking .

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


ESTABLO SANBENITO for a riding lesson or view our special Horse CULTURAL SHOW.

Special events coming in December.

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.
