About Lance Rankin
We live in Fort Worth, Texas. We have lived in Texas our whole lives. We wanted to make a place where people from the United States could go and feel safe and secure. We are business owners that decided to purchase this vacation home to share with others. We certainly plan to spend lots of time at the house each year.
Lance Rankin purchased this Estate in 2015
Why Lance Rankin chose Tarbaca
We purchased this home in an area that we have many friends. So anything that could be needed at the house is possible very quickly. We have a 24/7 caretaker/security on site. Jose' and his wife Marlen live in the caretaker house on the property. They have two children. Eteban is 19 and Allison is 13. They are extremely friendly and nice people. This home is stunning. 4800 square feet is the under roof living space. Peace and quiet is what you will get at this property. This makes a great home base to take day trips to popular attractions in Costa Rica. Jaco beach is 1:30 to 2:00 drive. San Jose' is 25 to 30 minutes away. The San Jose' airport is 30 minutes away.
What makes this Estate unique
The best feature of this property has to be the view. It is absolutely amazing. It is the reason we purchased it. It is 4800 squre foot of luxury home right now. The home is 4 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths and is able to host plenty of people at a time. We are adding things as we think of them and are able. We just added 2 sleeper sofas in the house to offer more beds as there is plenty of room in the main house for them.

What a great experience!
This is a stunning house overlooking San Jose. The view at night of the lights of San Jose was amazing. Up in the mountain the stars were so bright. . There is a powerful telescope set up that we enjoyed looking into San Jose. Lance is the perfect host. From Fort Worth he arranged for a friend of his to pick us up at the airport and guide us to his house - and this was on Christmas day. When we got to the house Carlos gave us a tour showing us the amenities and talking to us about Costa Rica. The house is huge, new and has an awesome master bedroom, bath and kitchen. There were enough bedrooms that each of our three kids got their own room and each room had a private bathroom. The grounds are landscaped and beautiful. Gifts of wine and coffee were in the gourmet kitchen. Costa Rica coffee is so good, but the best coffee was from the beans grown and roasted by friends of the Carlos and Lance. During the week Carlos arranged for friends to pick us up and take us to the Ram Luna - a restaurant about a mile away that offered copious amounts of local food that was absolutely delicious. The grounds are gated and maintained by a local family that live in a building on the grounds. Jose and his wife were pleasant and helpful and for a ridiculously small fee would provide cleaning service. Living in the mountains for a week was such a good experience for our family rather than staying on the coast with its United States hotels and neighborhoods. I highly recommend this house and the hospitality of Lance, Carlos and Jose!
Beautiful mountain home, magnificent view.
My wife and I stayed for a couple of weeks. Beautiful mountain home, great amenities in a country setting, and a magnificent view of San Jose and the Central Valley.We highly recommend it for your visit to Costa Rica. Not far from the city, with access to other parts of the country. The owner was very attentive to all our needs.
Thank you for the review of the property and of your stay. I hope you visit us again in the future.
