  • Fun in the Sun (and Surf!) and Away from the Madding Crowd

    "This sweet little retreat provided a delightful base for our group of old surf buddies to R&R and socialize poolside after riding super fun, consistent and uncrowded(!) waves out front. Set on a small hilltop overlooking the Pacific, the house is well-situated and private. The surrounding jungle delighted us with beautiful flowers, dancing butterflies, illusive iguanas, and vine-swinging howler monkeys. The home provided all the basic amenities (cooking utensils, refrigeration, fans, air conditioning, games, etc.) that we needed when we were not surfing. And Ostional Beach out front provided all the waves we could ride and a nice black sand shoreline to explore for shells and the famous sea turtles that seek refuge there. While we cooked most of our meals, there are a few worthwhile restaurants and a small market within walking distance . Meanwhile, the magnet tourist town of Nosara is only a 20 minute drive away if you seek a change of scene and wider variety of restaurants, shops, markets, and people-watching."

  • 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."

  • This is it, no need to keep looking...

    "We stayed in the mountain area of Monteverde before coming to this beach side villa for the second half of our wonderful Costa Rica vacation. We stayed here for 4 nights. Playa Ocotal is a quiet, uncrowded beach, yet less than10 minutes to the hustle and bustle of Playa Coco, which is very touristy. We were so glad to be at Playa Ocotal, especially in this particular unit. It is clean, and well appointed. It has a beautiful view of the ocean, and is only a few steps away from both the pool and the beach. We think it's the best unit in the Los Almendros complex. The "Property Description" is accurate. Our entire family, with daughters age 15 and 12, enjoyed our stay tremendously. The rental arrangements went very smoothly. Scott is very attentive and replies immediately to emails. This was our first trip to Costa Rica. We definitely plan on coming back. When we do, we hope this villa will still be in the VRBO listing. We have rented through VRBO for over 12 years. Our family highly recommends this villa. Another recommendation, especially for those first time vacationers to Costa Rica, is the book "Costa Rica, the Complete Guide" by James Kaiser. Good history of the country, insightful information of the different areas/regions, good travel tips, and great recommendations on restaurants (that's how we found great places to eat)."

  • Family Adventure of a Lifetime

    "Our family went to Costa Rica looking for adventure--and we found it--with a little help from our new friend, Elias! Casa Ostional is a retreat and truly exemplifies Pura Vida--pure living! No matter what you would want to do from adventures like zip lining, ATV, sunsets, beach/surfing--Elias knows the best places to take you and makes sure you are taken care of. The food is amazing and we felt welcome everywhere we went. Casa Ostional is stunning and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend time as a family. I would recommend this vacation to absolutely anyone and give it the highest rating!"
