  • Absolutely Perfect!

    "Absolutely Perfect! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ My two daughters and significant other stayed in the villa to celebrate my 60th birthday. The villa is spectacular from the view to the furnishings both inside and out to the layout and to the location. It was nice my daughters each had their own bedroom with very comfortable beds. We enjoyed the master suite with the attached bathroom. The half bath was also very nice to have. The little gardening sink area with the clothes lines were nice to dry towels. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer available. We so enjoyed eating outside at night under the stars after grilling dinner. There were so many comfortable sitting spaces outside both on the lower level and the upper deck. The garden area surrounding the lower patio was beautiful as was the view. The inside furnishings are very comfortable and the villa is supplied with everything you could possibly want. The rental process was smooth and seamless. We did early morning (6 AM) walks everyday walking up and down alot of hills. It is quite a sweaty walk up the hills from the lower pool and Picante, but not too bad early in the morning. Great views walking up even higher from the villa. The howler monkeys entertained us every morning and every evening at the upper pool which is a few villas down from this one. The Bahia Pez Vela map does not show this infinity pool, but we used it more than the lower one. Most of the time we were the only ones in it except for late afternoon when a few others would join us. We had a car which I would recommend so you can go to Father Rooster's and in to Playas del Coco. I would highly recommend this villa! Thank you Emily so much for allowing us to rent your villa!"

  • Very nice place in a fun, safe little town on the beach

    "We stayed a few days before heading south. Everything was as described. Very nice and exceptionally clean. We had what we needed to cook, bathroom was properly stocked with towels and the bed linens looked brand new. Frank had some nice beach towels for us to use, so nice I left them alone because I didn't want to get them dirty! There's also a propane grill and, I think, a cooler too. The unit is very secure and was easy walking distance to beach, bars and restaurants. The shared pool area is wonderful and like many others posted, we enjoyed the friendly people staying in the condos around us as well as they people who were taking care of the grounds. Also, Frank was very helpful, hospitable and accommodating. He even dropped what he was doing to rescue me from myself when I accidentally locked stuff in the safe and couldn't get it open again because I didn't read the directions. I look forward to renting from Frank again! Mark and Amy"

  • Sharon and Greg W Ontario, Canada

    "It was our second visit to the condo ; this time for 9 weeks. The spacious balcony located above the pool is sunny with partial shade. It provides a fine view of the surrounding landscape. The interior is well furnished and the kitchen has everything you need. Groceries and car/golf cart rentals are a 5 minute walk beyond the security gates. There are numerous shops, local markets and restaurants along the 1 km stroll to the ocean. Should you choose to do some excursions be sure to drop in on the Sibu Tours storefront. Their services cannot be beat. The condo provides all the amenities needed. The owners ensure everything is as advertised. Milagro, the management company, are great people to work with. Using this condo as a base will ensure a comfortable, safe and carefree vacation."

  • 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."
