  • Hate to write this review

    "So, you're probably wondering what went wrong to "hate" to write this review". Absolutely nothing. Rancho Ramar is a wonderful home that's actually better than what the pictures show or what the owners description depicts. The home is located right on the beach in the Costa De Oro section of Coyote. Step out of the rear door and your swimming in the beautiful pool. A few more steps your under the palm trees and about 50 or so feet later, your in the sand and a few more steps into the water. The beach is clean, long and pretty much what I think a beach should look like. Ask Pilo the caretaker, who lives with his wife in the front casita to put up the hammocks under the palm trees right at the edge of the beach, and it's heaven. As for Pilo and his wife Noylin, they live in the front Casita. Anything that needed a quick fix or help with, they were very helpful in taking care of. Pilo kept the pool and grounds clean and while we speak only a little Spanish and they only a little English, it wasn't much of a barrier. Inside, the home is beautiful. Full kitchen with just about anything you could need, AC in each room, and a great layout. Bedrooms and bathrooms, first rate. And a great outdoor Rancho. The location is remote. We knew that going in as we have previously visited the area. It's not for everyone. Anyone looking for night life or to be catered to, is missing the boat on why to come down to the Coyote area. It's a lack of those amenities that adds to the charm of Playa Coyote, Playa San Miguel and Costa de Oro. (all three beach areas that pretty much make up San Francisco De Coyote). The beaches are wonderfully uncrowded (meaning you might see 3-4 others within a mile in either direction), the local town of San Francisco De Coyote is a true Tico town with a few Expats scattered about and very few "tourists". There are limited, but enough small Tico restaurants and a couple of "higher end" restaurants, that will satisfy most people, each with their own distinctive charm and great food. Jose, the property owner was great to "do business with" as well. Communication was excellent! So why do I hate to write this review? Why would I want to share this info and find more people coming down to this special place in Costa Rica? I'd rather it stay just the way it is. For those looking to really get away from it all, but have it all, this place is for you and Rancho Ramar is great place to hang your hat for a week or more!"

  • Beautiful villa

    "Me and my son stayed in this villa for one week. The villa was large and absolutely beautiful. I viewed some vacancies in this same development and none showed as well as this one. Lots of nature noises (birds, ducks, monkeys) if you like that. You MUST have a rental/car. Although the Marriott is in proximity, it was nearly impossible to walk to in the sweltering heat...and the beach club is simply out of reach by foot, especially in the heat. And you'll definitely want a car to get in and out of town...or prepare to be gouged by Marriott transfers/taxis. Going in and out of the security gates was a bit of a hassle (I thought), but if you're concerned about your safety, then put this one on the list. No shady characters are getting in there! :-)"

  • Quiet Paradise

    "My wife and I could not have been happier with our choice of accommodations. Gary runs an excellent little slice of heaven right on the beach. His description and videos of the property are exactly what you get. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. If you are looking for tennis courts, a pool, widescreen TVs, and the full spa treatment, this is not the place for you. If however you are looking for la pura vida, this IS the spot. I can definitly see us staying here on a return visit to Costa Rica, I just hope it isn't too far in the future. As for Gary's recommendations on a tour company, trust me, the folks at TPV couldn't have put together a better day of tours. Wonderful way to explore the area. Several nearby restaurants as well, but glad we had a rental car for easy of getting around. Hasta Luego!"

  • Paradise in Costa Rica

    "We just returned from a two week stay at Casa Barefoot. We have been renting home in the J section of Playa Guiones for the last 10 years and this home was by far our very favorite! You just can't go wrong with this home, it has it all! It is beautifully decorated, on a quiet dead end street and about as close to the beach as you can get!! They have thought of every possible thing you would every need in a rental home!! The best outdoor area that you will never get tired of using!! A beautiful slice of heaven!"
