  • Great location; great owners

    "We chose this VRBO for the location. It did not disappoint. We stayed for 5 nights with our 7 & 9 year old boys. It is approximately 2 minute walk down a moderately steep hill to the beach (but that is what gives you a view from the porch). The sand was soft black sand (not dirty, nor hot). The beach was very private and the tide very calm. My 9 year old snorkeled w/o a life vest (although he is a good swimmer). Were able to see quite a few fish...not the best snorkeling in the world, but that is not what CR is known for, nonetheless, the snorkeling was as good as I expected it to be in CR. The home was clean and comfortable. The A/C worked well. Monkeys came to the tree near our porch. We had no trouble with using the local phone or binoculars left in the safe. Having access to the washing machine was great. Closest swimming pool is across the street (smaller one, but good for kids)---there are others that you have access to. Larger, nicer pool at entrance to the condo complex (part of Club at Coco) and kids really liked this pool. We went to this pool (could walk here) every day and always had the pool to ourselves and could smell the wonderful foods at Father Roosters (which is just in front). Also saw birds and monkeys while at this pool. We enjoyed Father Roosters, which was walk-able. Food was good for both adults and kids. 20 minute drive to Diamante to go to an Adventure Park (we rode ATVs and Zip Lined). Less than 10 minute drive to Coco where you can go to grocery store (prices not far off from USA) and more restaurants. The owners were very responsive to any questions I had before I arrived and after I got there. I felt very safe here at day and night. I would recommend having a car, but it is not necessary, just depends on what your agenda is. You can easily get a cab to go to Coco (go to restaurant, grocery). But if you want to do day trips, a car would be easiest, we drove a good part of the country before coming here and did not feel at all intimidated by the driving in this country. For the price, this location was great and I would recommend it to others."

  • Gorgeous view, Great location, All the amenities to keep you cool, comfortable and relaxed.

    "What a gorgeous view to wake up to every morning or watch the sunset at night! This condo has everything you need to make you feel right at home. A porch with grill, living room, kitchen, two gorgeous bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a large tub and multiple showers mean you have all the space you need to enjoy your stay. It offers a great location close to many great beaches and within an hour or so of the lush green mountains. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and it was a blast. We went up to the cloud forest of Monteverde, snorkeled at Ocotal, spread out on the white sand beach of Conchal and rode horses and swam in waterfalls of Guachepelin. Staff are friendly and very helpful at the gate and on the property. Pool and tennis courts are first class. Supermarkets are close by and the kitchen is full appointed. We were not left wanting for anything. Our neighbors were super friendly and helpful too. We can't wait to go back... Pura Vida!"

  • Great place to stay

    "I stayed at Villa Tucan for 5 nights on a girls getaway. It is a spacious 3 bedroom condo that is very close to the beach, pool and on site restaurant. The kitchen was well equipped, everything was clean and the decorations were cheerful. There is also plenty to do nearby. The condo is in a development called Playa Pez Vela which is in its own beautiful and secluded black sand cove. The snorkeling from the beach is fantastic and at low tide one can walk on the rocks and tide pools to the next cove over (Playa Ocotal). The waves in the cove are small and it is a great place to swim. Of course, the pool was refreshing and beautiful. We took a number of walks from the Villa where we saw Howler monkeys, colorful birds, scuttling crabs, iguanas and the biggest toad ever. The staff at the Playa Pez Vela was really helpful and responded immediately when we had an issue. The owners, Henry and Liz, are friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this place as a base for travelling in this part of Costa Rica."
