This is my second time at this wonderful property. It is truly spectacular from the breathtaking views to lounging in the infinity pool on a hot afternoon. It really is something to experience first hand. The staff who pop in from time to time are lovely and work hard at making sure everything is just right. We also hired a local Chef who came in and took care of everything for me and my friends (food was delicious). Speaking of food, there are many great restaurants in the area... all within a 15 minute drive. The first week was with friends and kids, and there is plenty to do with the families... we enjoyed some zip lining and horseback riding, surfing (the kids body surfed), deep sea fishing (caught a nice King Mackerel for dinner), and of course some shopping in Tamarindo which isn't too far away. My favourite moments were sitting by the pool in the evening watching the swallows come in for their evening drink (dozens of them swooping the pool) and watching the incredible sunsets with a nice glass of wine in hand with my friends. The house is truly set up to relax... or to throw an impromptu dance session with your friends... it's well equipped with almost anything you'll need to be self sustaining if that's what you'd like. Enjoyed an late evening with my 12 year old daughter watching movies on Netflix.... I highly recommend this property to anyone or group of friends or family. You can make your trip what you want at this beautiful home. Thank you Pamela.. I'll be back again soon.

We just return from 10 days in Costa Rica staying at Villa De Oro - From this wonderful house and location we have been able to drive to the famous Rincon de la Veja Park, (we rented very easily a 4x4 to Alamo), visit turtles park and enjoy the fantastic playas- Very close to the villa we had also the opportunity to rent a sailing boat and this was a fabulous experience- The house is closed to the playa Flamingo ...a must in Costa Rica- We also spend some few hours walking around the house in a splendid nature, where from time to time we saw some monkeys.

The house itself is perfection, where we enjoyed a splendid view on the Pacific ocean- It is really amazing swimming in the swimming pool and have a splendid view on the ocean- Fully equipped, modern and new we really felt at home, and bedrooms and bath rooms were of high quality (including linen and pillows)- Kitchen was well stocked and we could find everything we needed....

For sure we shall come back ...there are so many things to do overthere- including resting.....and enjoy sunset from the terrace

What a wonderful travel experience for our first trip to Costa Rica - Villa De Oro. The Villa was beautiful with all the amenities for a first class stay. My wife and I look for consistent weather, good hiking and a place to relax with nice views, while we got all of that and more. One of our favorite pass times was sitting by the infinity pool at around 6 each night with a glass of wine waiting for the spectacular sunset. The stunning view from the pool looking out to the ocean made for a very relaxing end to our day. Getting up early each day and hiking either up the road or across from the Villa through a laid out trail was a great kick start to our day. If you like birds and wildlife, this is the place to see many species (the bird book provided at the villa will help you identify them).

I would highly recommend this immaculate Villa to singles, couples, families and friends. There is something for everyone and my wife and I are already planning our return trip to Villa De Oro.

Owner's Response: All we can say is that we are so impressed that these guests hiked so many times-wow! It is a great way to start the day but must be followed by a swim! We bought walking poles for our guests so we are very happy to see they are being used. Pam

We had a wonderful week's stay at Villa De Oro and would highly recommend it to anyone. The pictures don't do it justice. The views from the property were beautiful, majestic and panoramic from sunrise to sunset. The weather was gorgeous all week long, e.g. sunny with highs in the 90s every day. The villa was immaculate and accommodating in all respects. Leaving the doors open during the day and allowing the breezes to circulate through the house made it that much more comfortable. We loved the pool, deck area and porch, and spent a lot of time there for meals, playing games at night and just relaxing. Taking advantage of the Stock the Fridge program was a good choice and made move in day that much easier on us all. The grocery store downtown was moderately stocked. Having said that, we made very few meals and, like others despite the many options, our favorite restaurant was the Beach House at sunset. Great food, service and venue. We highly recommend it to everyone, especially the sea bass, mahi mahi and coconut shrimp. We loved going down to the local beaches, especially Playa Punta. We also enjoyed taking advantage of the amenities as Las Caseletas for morning swims and breakfast. I highly recommend the banana pancakes. Can't wait to see what that complex will look like after all the construction is done. It should be massive. Roxana was helpful in making arrangements for a chef to serve the eight of us dinner and also the excursion we took to Palo Verde for the boat cruise. The location of the villa made it somewhat prohibitive to take other excursions, many of which required 8 hours of around trip travel just to get there and back. Our guide was excellent, as was Ander our chef!! Renting the Mitsubisi Montero as recommended was a good choice, given the road conditions off the main highways. The driving conditions on those roads and the road up to the villa varied from fair to extremely poor. Some of those holes and ruts in the dirt roads would take the steering wheel right out of your hand and it was slow going at times. At one point we even had to ford a stream with three feet of water. Using American currency was easy and the local banks in town allowed us access to exchange for Colones. Tropical Homes did a fantastic job and we couldn't have been more pleased. Special thanks to Rita.

Very Special Home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Viila De Oro. We were 3 families with 1 toddler and 3 babies. The house was perfection. We all could't believe how the trip worked out and It has a lot to do with how nice the house was. The Kitchen is well stocked and has everything you need. The beds are very comfortable and all of the linens and pillows were new and felt very high end. These details make a big difference and really make you feel at home.

The Location is amazing. The view simply cannot be beat. We had a great time exploring and loved the beaches (playa Danta ended up being our favourite). The pool is beautiful and a needed luxury to stay cool :-)

The staff at tropical homes was fantastic. They took care of every detail for us. I sent them a grocery list so that the house was stocked upon our arrival. They arranged a nanny to help us for our entire stay (Melena, we miss you. total god send). They also arranged for 3 different private chefs to come in and a masseuse. Since we were there with four young children we really didn't leave the compound very much and it was such a luxury to have everything come to us. I hope to go back next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words. It is nice to know that our attention to the details is noticed and appreciated. It comes from staying at various rental properties and being disappointed in the quality of sheets, towels, beds and pillows which to me are really important to a comfortable stay. Plus, I always wondered why I walked into a kitchen and could not find a single spice or olive oil or vinegar. So, we have tried to make our Costa Rican home a home away from home for our guests.

What a view!!!!! What a sunset….loved it all!

Great location

We booked this trip only knowing that we weren’t too far from Liberia airport (1 hr). After winding in and out of the coast, we arrived at Playa Potrero and started our ascent way up high in the mountain….the view was spectacular…we could not have dreamed a nicer place. Just 2 minutes down and your toes are in the ocean!

We sat by the infinity edged pool sipping our cocktails and watched the spectacular sunsets night after night. Thank you to the owners for making our stay so comfortable with information about restaurants and activities in a binder. Our favorite restaurant was the Beach House, but the Las Brisas just at the bottom of the hill also had amazing fish tacos.

Great amenities

The house is fully equipped, modern and new. All the comforts of home with wifi and satellite tv too, which was handy with teenagers. Everything is so luxurious and well appointed, could not ask for more.

We were so happy that we had the most spectacular view of the Catalinas Islands in the sunset. And by the way, the house being on top of the mountain also gets a sunrise! Right into the master ensuite tub….or out on the balcony. Amazing!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review. We love the location too because houses right on the beach can be so hot whereas we have the breezes. Folks often don’t know how lovely and warm it is in Costa Rica where we are on the gold coast. When you booked the trip, you may have wondered why the response rate shown on the VRBO site was so low yet your booking was done quickly. This is because the VRBO site bases our response rate on whether we communicate on-line with our booking guests. We prefer however as you know to have a quick conversation to do the booking through the wonderful folks at Tropical Homes of Costa Rica who look after the house for us and who take such good care of our guests. We hope you will return for those fabulous sunsets (and cocktails!).
