Recent Costa Rica vacation rental reviews

Love the location and how clean it was
Grace G. | Sep 2022
I must say that before booking this house I read all the reviews on VRBO and even contacted VACASA with my concerns raised by other guest. Which were all minor but still wanted to make sure those issues had been taken care of. I was assured everything was in tip top shape and ready for our stay. I’m so glad I did decide to book here. We were a party of 10 adults and everyone had a bed to sleep and a bathroom to use. The house did not disappoint in any way. It was modern and beautiful inside and out with breathtaking views. The location is perfect close to town with shopping, restaurants, bars, grocery stores anything you could need is in town 5 min away. I had a few needs that I called Kevin the caretaker and he responded promptly and was very nice and made sure we were happy and asked to please call him if we needed anything. The issue was handled promptly. The home and kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need. Just like your home back home. We had two rental cars and they were safe parked inside covered parking and locked fenced in gate. I can not say enough about this home. I will definitely be back and the care taker Kevin had a lot to do with that decision great customer service. The only thing I will say and it’s the low water pressure. If your not familiar or never been to Guanacaste. That town is known for this and getting grit and sand clogging the shower heads. It’s fine and acceptable. But it’s a 5 bedroom 5 bath home and if everyone decides to shower at same time you will notice a reduced pressure and hot water ran out. So don’t expect the same as in a hotel or your home back home. Its a house on a mountain top. So understand and be flexible. It in no way diminish our stay. Highly recommend it for a large family. Enjoy Pura Vida

The incorrect key was left in the lockbox and it took 1.5 hours to get the correct one. Other than that, the condo is very nice.

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.
