  • 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."

  • Precisely what we were hoping for and more

    "My wife and I stayed at Casa Holmes for 10 days and I can very much say it was exactly what we were hoping for and more. One of the most overlooked components of booking a property through VRBO/HomeAway is the interaction with the owner and I can tell you first hand that Nita is absolutely amazing to work with. She is responsive, informative, and well deserving of your trust. On top of that, Wes & Lisa, the local property managers, couldn't be more helpful. We had a small snafu - I forgot my driver's license - and Wes & Lisa made it a non-issue for us by introducing us to people we needed to know and helping us get it down to CR via DHL (no small feat). The property itself has THE best view in Playa Coco - even better than the Lookout. We found ourselves just relaxing on the deck and not even wanting to go anywhere else. The house also has just about everything you may need.... from snorkeling gear (there's a neat little rock about 100 yds out in front of the house that is fun to poke around) to a great little stereo (don't bring bluetooth speakers like we did - you don't need them for the house) to an extremely well appointed kitchen. A few things - make sure you rent a vehicle with AWD/4WD. We were without a vehicle for 5 days and the driveway will give you a serious workout... I would believe there are many people who would actually not be able to make it up without help (i.e. my mother, etc.). There is a GREAT little store about 300 yds down the street that has just about everything the larger stores do but I think many people don't know it exists. The house comes with a local cell phone - it's extremely handy. There are a few things I could nit-pick about but we have stayed in many homes around the world is this property is easily deserving of a 5 star rating as is Nita and the way she welcomes you into her home. We would recommend this property to friends and family but also kind of want to keep it to ourselves. :)"

  • Beatiful private villa

    "We stayed at BPV in April 2016. I shared the apartment with my wife and 4 sons. There was plenty of room. I really believe that this is probably the perfect place to stay in Costa Rica. It's only a half hour to the airport. You can leave the US in the morning and be on the beach in the afternoon. Another restaurant and scuba diving is only 5 minutes away and Coco is only a few minutes beyond that. Coco is a fun place to walk around when tired of the beach. The villa faces a private beach without other tourists or a marina. Picante restaurant is as good as any in Costa Rica and you can almost roll out of bed into the restaurant. Al is a wonderful host who arranges all the details and can arrange many exciting excursions as well. We had a wonderful time and would go back in a heartbeat."
