About Lisa & Matt Povlow
PURA VIDA!! We are Lisa and Matt Povlow. We live in Clearwater, Florida. We purchased our Villa in 2016. After an exhaustive search for the perfect location, we could not be happier! We believe our villa is in the absolutely perfect location. And as a close friend said, "Punta Leona is so beautiful it should be illegal!"

Why Lisa & Matt Povlow chose Tarcoles
Our villa is within a small gated community. There are 4 duplexes and 2 efficiency's within the community. The community is in the Rain Forest and is home to lots of wildlife. You will experience serenity and peacefulness while you are at our villa. It's the perfect location to end your day after being out and about, with seemingly limitless things to do for all ages. Or, enjoy your day reading a book at the pool.

The owners are really nice host, they gave us a lot of information about the activities around. The house is well equipped, comfortable and the pool is nice also. Really easy to communicate with the owner, quick response all the time. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet the monkey lady, amazing experience!
had a great time everything as promised
Perfect for a family of 4
Acconodations suited our needs as a family of 4. The location was fantastic for exploring nearby Jaco and surrounding area. We saw tons of wildlife. The beaches at the end of the road were spectacular. Neighbours and caretaker were helpful and friendly. We would definately return.
The villa was awesome.
We had an amazing holiday. Costa Rica is a must to see. Our villa was comfortable, relaxing close to the beach and shopping. Matt and Lisa have it nicely decorated. Saw lots birds, monkeys, iguanas and other wildlife. Villa is situated right in the middle.
Superbe endroit propre et calme
Nous avons passé un très beau séjour. Les photos de la maison étaient fidèles et nous n’avons pas été déçus. L’endroit est propre et bien entretenu. Lester est sur place pour répondre à vos question en cas de besoin. La cuisine est petite mais bien équipée. La maison est située dans un endroit calme un peu à l’écart de la route. Nous avons adoré!
Lovely villa in a natural, quiet area
Our family of 4 spent a fantastic 2 weeks at the villa. As it was just the beginning of rainy season, we experienced some intense storms in the afternoon, but had plenty of time for exploring the area and seeing the sights. The villa is clean and comfy, and we enjoyed having a pool just steps away. Everything was spotlessly clean and the caretaker was happy to help us with anything we needed. We followed many of Matt and Lisa's tips for restaurants and things to see, including the Monkey Lady (not to be missed). The access to the villa from major roads was fairy easy and we explored many surrounding areas taking a couple of overnights away to visit Monteverde and Arenal volcano. We did day trips charter fishing our of Herradura (took our catch to the restaurant called La Ostra and they cooked it for us -- delish) and a day trip to Manuel Antonio. Great location, super villa and helpful hosts. Couldn't ask for anything more!
There are ATV, zip lining and fishing tours available in nearby Herradura and Jaco. Crocodile tours in nearby Tarcoles.
