Recent Costa Rica vacation rental reviews

Nice pool, good community, safe location and everything works. Not sure what else you would want.
Dan H. | Feb 2024
Beautiful views and privacy. The pool was a fantastic for our choosing this home
Ron and Babs R. | Feb 2024
The home was incredible. Incredible view of Arenal Volcano from back yard. Each bedroom had its own ensuite bathroom. The interior was very tastefully decorated with fine wood sculptures and artwork. The kitchen fully appointed with everything you needed. Our favorite was the beautiful outdoor property. The clear pond in the yard with outdoor kitchen was incredible. The landscaping was immaculate and the variety of plants encouraged so many visitors including an incredible array of birds including our favorite the yellow-fronted toucan and several huge iguanas in the trees. Right before we checked out a landscaper brought a sloth on a tree limb that had fallen and we got to see him up close as he slowly made his way into another tree. The check in and out was easy as a property manager was on sight and met us when we arrived and showed us the property. Overall an excellent experience. We wouldn't change a thing.

Where is Costa Rica?

Stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea, the territory of Costa Rica encompasses 200 miles. While you can drive from coast to coast in only three hours, it could take you months to explore all of the microclimates that this country offers. Touching Nicaragua to the north, the Caribbean and Pacific east and west, and bordering Ecuador and Panama as well, Costa Rica truly is, as its English translation claims, a rich coast. 

Beaches in Costa Rica

Ranging from white and gold to chocolate-colored sands, you can find it all in the peaceful paradise of Costa Rica. Snorkel and swim in the quiet turquoise waters at Playa Conchal beach, or visit the calm waters and pristine coastline at Manuel Antonio beach. The whole stretch of Puntarenas Province features captivating views and stunning beaches for your enjoyment.

Playa Santa Teresa and Tamarindo beaches are where surfers find waves while bustling Jacó is a classic vacation destination for residents of the capital city, San Jose. Possibly the country's most developed beach town, this area is a local favorite not only for relaxation but also for nightlife, and our vacation villa rentals place you close to all.
