  • A perfect family gathering spot

    "We had a great Christmas vacation with our kids and grandkids. The apartments were well appointed for cooking meals and enjoying meals together. The casitas allowed each family to have their own space. The pool was clean and a good size. It was shady and lovely to spend time after the beach. The beach, though a five minute walk, was perfect for little kids and surfers alike. Howler monkeys in the beautiful big trees surrounding the property and lots of birds."

  • 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!"

  • Great Place to Stay

    "This condo is well-equipped, comfortable, and had all we needed for vacation time. Both indoor and outdoor areas are perfect for relaxing. Pool on site helped us cool off on hot days. The beach was a great place to explore as well as swim. Tamarindo was an easy walk from the condo, and fun to visit. Local tours offer great variety and there is plenty to do in and around Tamarindo. The area seems very relaxed and welcoming; friendly people and safe environment. The property owners helped out with instructions for all aspects of the condo, which made settling in very easy. They also provided information about the area, so we did not waste a lot of time figuring out where to go or what to do. Great service and assistance always available, if needed. We would definitely recommend this condo to other travelers, and will return if opportunity arises!"

  • Wonderful family vacation

    "Our family of six stayed in Casa Blanca for four nights. The other reviews of the home were very accurate. The home is older, but well maintained. The location is ideal. Over the years we have been to many beaches and Playa Grande is our new favorite. The sand is fantastic, the waves are ideal for beginner surfers, and during our visit their was very few people on the beach. The best part of it all is that this amazing beach is right outside the back of the house. When we arrived at the house we were greeted by the house's caretaker, Marta. Her English is not the best, but she was still able to explain things to us. The next morning her son, Marcos, stopped by and spoke with us. His English is excellent. He and his girlfriend Marianna operate a surf/tour shop. We rented some surf boards and boogie boards from them and our 10 year old son had a private surf lesson with Marcos. It all was fantastic. Our last night at the house Marta prepared a traditional Costa Rican dinner for us. We invited her, Marcos, and Marianna to join us for dinner. The food was great and the dinner conversation was delightful. Since returning from casa blanca we have shared our stories and pictures with many friends. It is a great place to stay. It is not a 5 star hotel, but it is a very well maintained, older home in an amazing location."
