About the property

Enjoy concierge service and private beach club steps away from peaceful beach

Just steps away from a salt-and-pepper beach, TWO brand-new, sparkling clean, three-bedroom, three-bathroom villas are luxuriously and lovingly appointed. The modern kitchens are fully equipped – no detail has been overlooked. Prepare your own meals or secure a private chef for a sit-down meal complete with cloth napkins and wine goblets, relaxing at the poolside grill or on the patio.

Each cheery bedroom is outfitted with a queen-sized bed, cozy comforter, fluffy pillows and crisp sheets. Hair dryers, bath linens and over-sized beach towels are also furnished for our guests.

The Villas are equipped with cable and Wi-Fi, in case you want to lounge in front of the TV or post Facebook pictures of how much fun you’re having! Not that you would want to do laundry on vacation... but you could in our full size washer and dryer.

Guests will also enjoy our private beach club as well as an all-access pass to the club at nearby Coco Bay Estates, an exclusive tennis and fitness center featuring a full-service restaurant, tropical pool, and a state-of-the art workout equipment.

Our personal concierge will welcome you and be on-site to assist you with anything from rental cars and restaurants, to recommendations for scuba and zip-lining excursions, to hiring a private chef. We hope you’ll feel like our Casa de Playa is your casa!

Rent one villa for up to 6 people or both villas for up to 12 people. Rates quoted are for ONE villa.

About Wendy or Keith

Keith and Wendy met at a Chicago advertising agency and surprised everyone as the office romance that lasted. They fell in love with Costa Rica on their honeymoon and fantasized about buying property, then returned to reality. Sixteen years, two kids, and four states later, they landed in SW Florida where Keith is a marketing director and Wendy is beginning a new career as a teacher. On a spontaneous 2015 trip to Costa Rica, the country captivated them as much as the first time. This trip, they left owning a villa and dreaming of the day the could return for more than just a vacation. They are delighted to share their little slice of heaven and hope you love it as much as they do!

Wendy or Keith purchased this villa in 2015

Nice place in the right location.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just right for our group of six. The location in the small complex is good, right next to the pool. The small development is in a quiet spot, a few minutes from Playas del Coco, only about 100 m from the beach at Ocotal. A bonus is Father Rooster Restaurant, with pretty good lunch or dinner, right at the beach. My wife and I were on our way back from a trip to Colombia and Chile, and we appreciated the conveniences of home, like a washer and dryer. The support people, Holly and Gilmar, were there to her anytime we needed them. I give high marks to Vista Ocotal, and I hope we can stay there on future visits to the area.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed our little oasis! Playa Ocotal is a little hidden gem . . . quiet when you need it and close to the action when you want it. Hope you also got a chance to take in a little live music at Father Rooster and get the fresh catch from the local fish lady. We would love to have you back!

Beautiful Townhome Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home rental had everything we needed! It was perfect for our group of 6 retired adults. Short easy walk to the beach and restaurant/bar. Loved the pool. It was great that each of the couples had their own room and bath. We were pleasantly surprised to find a family of monkeys living in the trees adjacent to the property that we could watch while out on the deck or patio enjoying our coffee. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

Quiet secluded oasis

  • 5 of 5

playa ocotal is a sleepy beach about 10 minutes from the bustle of Playa del Coco's. As others have said, it does require you to have a car unless you are ok having one restaurant and no stores within walking distance (nearest is maybe 3/4-mile away and a smaller store).

The condo was great. 3 bd, 3 bath with lots of room. Dining table with 5 chairs was great. The living room was smaller with seating for only 4. We had 5 in our group so it was perfect. I could see how larger groups could feel like it was too small.

Well stocked, clean, great air conditioning, few bugs, and felt very upscale from the place we came from.

There was a family of howler monkeys in the tree just outside. Father Roosters was good and close. The beach club access (2) were both nice and we used them twice each in 4 days. Definitely had to drive to Coco Bay. The other beach club was walking distance and we loved Joaquin and Katy who now run it. Sang karaoke with them one night.

We were happy with our stay and would recommend for families who want a quieter location and have a car.

Owner's Response: We're happy you enjoyed your stay! Joaquin and Katy have recently moved their operations, Costa Rica Beach Services and Point Beach Private Chef, to the Beach Club about two minutes from the villa. We are glad you got to meet them. We like to think of them as our secret weapon. The villa capacity does top out at six adults. For larger groups, we have a second comparable villa available, allowing us to host parties up to 12 people. Large groups often gather for meals at the rancho on the pool deck, or at the Beach Club. Thanks for your kind words . . . Keith & Wendy

Beach villa

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the villa. It was clean, updated and the grounds were well taken care of. Great secrity. The kids enjoyed the pool, wifi worked well and access to the beach club gave nice variety. Would have liked more seating in the living room for our family of 6.

Beautiful location and great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled here in April 2017 and found the condo to be fully equipped and the property management staff to be very helpful.

We loved our stay at this property! It was a great location for day trips (Zip lining, boat tours, volcanos) but also a wonderful location to relax away from busier spots. The beach is a very short walk from the condo and the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sun. There are several women that set up massage along the shore and the restaurant Fathers Rooster has great food and drinks - the Tika Linda was our favourite.

If you're looking for relaxation/peace but still being a short drive away to busier spots this would be a great rental for you!

Lovely stay at Playa Ocotal

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days at Vista Ocotal. I was very impressed with the condo itself. It was spacious with everything we needed. Three full bathrooms and full size washer and dryer were a nice surprise. The pool is 30 steps from the door, as counted by the 9-year-old. We have three boys, 5, 7 and 9 and this place was great for them. There are lots of lovely, breakable decorations which I stashed away as soon as we got in, but for adults it was nicely decorated! While no bed is like my own, they weren't too bad. I've definitely had worse in Mexico. Linens and towels are lovely and plentiful. We rented a car and parking is easy out front of the office. The boys LOVED Joaquin and Katy who run the cafe in the office. Breakfast with them was always a hit. We also did a private dinner on the patio which Joaquin and Katy prepared - amazing food! Always a little surprise from them, and adorable surrogate grandparents for the trip. We loved the howler monkeys onsite and a kitty or pup would usually make an appearance for the kids. We visited the Club at Playa del Coco and it was a very nice (nearly vacant) pool with slide for the monkeys...I mean kids.

The only downside I noted was the lack of any type of beach items. A couple of chairs, umbrella, a cooler and buckets/shovels would have been a nice-to-have. We were so grateful another resident lent the boys boogie boards for the week. It made the beaches unforgettable!

Overall I think this was a fantastic property with great amenities. I'd recommend this condo to a friend for sure!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Lisa! We're happy you enjoyed the villa and Playa Ocotal! We've been receiving a lot of great feedback on the onsite cafe. The cafe got off of the ground last year, and Joaquin and Katy started offering catering services shortly thereafter. While a lot of our guests like to take advantage of having access to a full kitchen and prepare their own food, they also love the option of kicking back and enjoying some local cuisine. Joaquin and Katy have also been great at fulfilling special requests, whether it's finding a special bottle of wine or serving a large party. They're a fantastic asset! We have also been receiving more requests for beach gear, and are working on sourcing some items to leave in the villas for our guests' use. We know happy kids mean happy parents! Thanks again for your feedback! Pura Vida!

Playa Ocotal
Car: recommended

Whether your ideal vacation is basking in the sun on a breath-taking beach, exploring natural wonders, embarking on an eco-adventure or shopping, gambling, dining and dancing, Ocotal ‘s got it all. Tucked away on a peaceful cove just five minutes from the lively village of Coco, Playa Ocotal is one of the cleanest, quietest beaches in the region with some of the best snorkeling and surfing around. Bordered by high bluffs, the waters off the salt-and-pepper beach teem with schools of tropical fish, turtles, octopus and Manta Ray making it a perfect destination for scuba diving and sport fishing.

This north Pacific paradise boasts pristine shorelines, rugged mountain ranges, waterfalls, volcanoes and an abundance of tropical wildlife. Active vacationers won't want to miss Diamante Eco-Adventure Park, opening this November, where they can amp up their pulse on an ATV, bike, kayak, paddle board, jet-ski, mile-long zip-line, or aerial adventure. Diamante is also host to Costa Rica’s only jungle cat exhibit as well as a butterfly observatory, aviary and hummingbird garden.

Guanacaste is home to a number of national parks within a few hours drive of Ocotal. Rincon de la Vieja National Park is a Costa-Rican must-see with its active volcanoes, deep black soils, misty cloud-forests and dream-like waterfalls. Santa Maria Volcano, one of nine craters in the park, reaches a peak of 6,385 feet. Intrepid travelers can hike to the summit through several distinct life zones and ecosystems, a rigorous but rewarding endeavor. Santa Rosa, one of Costa Rica's first national parks, is a sparkling gem in the country's commitment to preservation with its dense forests and white-sand beaches. Both parks offer camping and an abundance of flora and fauna, including spider and howler monkeys, puma, jaguars, sloths, tapirs and a colorful array of exotic birds.

With such diversity, natural beauty and of course, the native “Ticos” -- some of the most welcoming people in the world -- It’s no wonder that this Costa Rican region is one of the most popular with local and international travelers alike! Pura Vida!
