Property description

With the pool and the beach literally mere steps from the front porch, this villa is aptly suited for a relaxing vacation for a larger family or various couples vacationing together.

The master bedroom has its own balcony and features a queen size bed, one of the guest rooms has a queen size bed and the other two guest rooms feature double beds, to cater to a maximum of eight persons (no special facilities for young children in the house). There is ample closet space for all of your luggage.

The large, well equipped kitchen is part of a large open concept living space, with a nice living/dining area. The high ceilings add to the feeling of grandeur. Of course all the rooms feature air conditioning and it goes without saying that Wifi internet is available, as is a choice of local and international (English language) TV channels. The unit has an indoor washer/dryer.

The owners, who bought this brand new property at the end of 2014, have lovingly furnished and decorated their home in a way that will be welcoming to their (and your) guests.

Guests at Vista Ocotal do not only have access to their own pool and rancho area, but they can use the facilities of the Coco Bay Estates Beach Club on the beach of Ocotal and the Club facilities in Coco Bay Estates (with tennis, large pool, gym).

This villa at Vista Ocotal offers you all the ingredients for a wonderful and memorable vacation in very comfortable surroundings. You´ll surely love it.
We will also gladly assist you in making arrangements for airport pick up, rental cars, ready made or customized tours, etc. All you have to do is ask.

On behalf of the proud owners we would love to welcome you at Vista Ocotal, unit 10.

Car: Recommended

With (direct) flights from US and Canadian carriers like Air Canada, American Airlines, Continental, Delta, Frontier, Grupo Taca, JetBlue, Spirit Air, United and US Airways from a variety of airports (Charlotte, Miami, Houston, Atlanta, Newark, New York, Dallas, Toronto, to name just a few) to the International Airport Daniel Oduber in Liberia, Costa Rica (airport code LIR), is rapidly becoming a major hub for vacationers to Costa Rica and especially to our province of Guanacaste with its many national parks and beach towns.

Car rental companies will provide you with access to your own transportation, but airport transfers can be arranged too of course.

Playa Ocotal is about 30 kilometers (20 miles) from that international airport, so after less than a 25 minute drive you can swap your winter gear for summer clothes and have a cold beer or nice cocktail to toast to your vacation.

Playa Ocotal is mainly a residential and resort beach, located in a small horseshoe shaped bay, surrounded by lush hills, just 3 kilometers/2 miles south of Playas del Coco, where most of the amenities (supermarkets, banks, doctor´s and dentist´s offices, bars and restaurants, souvenir shops, real estate offices, etc) can be found.

Playa Ocotal is an ideal starting point for activities like sport fishing (a few operators in the bay) or scuba diving at Rocket Frog Divers, who offer more than scuba diving alone (www.scuba-dive-costa-rica.com), sunset sail trips etc. The rocky sides of the bay make for fun snorkeling.

The famous Father Rooster restaurant is right on the beach and for a great breakfast with astonishing ocean views head up to the Ocotal Resort.

Lounge at the pool of Vista Ocotal or take a dip in the pool of the nearby Coco Bay Estates Beach Club, which is part of the Vista Ocotal community. Feeling more active? The tennis court at Coco Bay Estates and the gym are at your disposal.

The nearby town of Playas del Coco is only 3 km/2 miles north of Playa Ocotal, so you will have easy access to banks, a choice of supermarkets to stock up on your necessities, shops, dental offices, real estate offices, bars, sports bars, restaurants to please different pallets, spa and massage facilities, etc.

In the area there are a variety of national parks that are well worth a trip: Rincón de la Vieja Vulcano and National Park, Santa Rosa National Park, Palo Verde Wetlands and National Park. Although the Arenal Volcano, in the National Park with the same name is near dormant, it is still an impressive sight and the lake area nearby is famous for windsurfing and other water sport activities.

For some ¨couleur locale¨ head out to the nearby town of Liberia, Ciudad Blanca (white city), have lunch in a local restaurants, stroll through the old town with its regional architecture. Or further south to Santa Cruz, a smaller town with that typical Costa Rican flavour. Near Santa Cruz you can visit the villages of Guaítil and San Vicente, both dedicated to the production of pottery in the Chorotega style, typical for this region. The art is still practiced with locally found natural colorants and they will gladly show you how it is done.

With your villa at Vista Ocotal as your home away from home, you will find that there is plenty to see and do if you want to explore and that you will have a luxurious and comfortable place to come home too.

We´d love to welcome you as our guests in our little piece of paradise!
