Perfect Costa Rican Vacation
We stayed at Villa de La Roca with a group of 6 (3 couples) and the set up was perfect. Please note though, the floors are not connected inside the home- you have to go outside to get to the other floor and the porch area should be locked at night per the owners request. The kitchen is perfectly usable (but needs to be better set up with the basics before guests arrive. We had no hand soap or S&P. Also, it desperately needs new sharp knives.) for the basics but I would recommend going out to eat as much as possible- it’s vacation! The water pressure/temp and WiFi is great. The AC works well in the bedrooms. The home is basically open air though- meaning, you will have bugs in the house and there are always ants. This may just be part of vacationing in CR, but potentially the house could be sprayed prior to guest arrival. The beds are comfy. Towels (just enough- shower and beach) are provided. Anna Maria comes to clean regularly. While there are some things that could be polished up about this home- YOU CAN’T BEAT THE VIEWS. The house is one of a few ON the beach. Unobstructed views. Watch the surfers and the tide come in and out. You’re seconds away from being on the beach and collecting shells and playing in the water. Allen & Kathy were great hosts- around/available but not intrusive. They were helpful with suggestions- Taco Star is a short walk down the beach and Kike’s in town for local food. They also have contacts in the community- they set us up with Maria from Chocobanana to set up tours and with Teo who came to the house to do massages on the porch! Tamarindo is a quick 25 minute drive (and it’s worth it to stay in Playa Grande. SO much more calm.) and easy to get to if you’re looking for more people and souvenirs. Also the nicer grocery store is there, which I would recommend.
Overall, we would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone! We had an absolutely wonderful time! Thank you Allen and Kathy!! Pura Vida!!
Beautiful trip to Playa Grande
My Family traveled to Costa Rica over spring break. We stayed at Villa of the Rock and enjoyed our time. The house sits right on the beach and the views are gorgeous. Alan had people there to help us plan our stay and book any excursions we wanted to do. This made is really simple and it was so helpful to trust the people we were working with. Alan was very accommodating and made sure we understood the features of the home and how and when to lock up. The kids loved the surfing lessons, sea fishing, and many meals at Kike's restaurant right up the road. Also ran into a wonderful farmers market on Wednesday evening that was full of local food and art pieces to buy. The house itself was clean and in a perfect location, but it is open during the day which allows some bugs/ants inside. As long as you can look past a few bugs here and there, the house is worth it. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. Had a true Costa Rican feel which is what we were hoping for. The location was pretty close to just about everything. We experienced Sea turtles laying eggs, ocean cruises, deep sea fishing, surfing, zip lines....all were about 25 minutes away in different directions. A really nice central place to be. We loved our time there and would recommend this house.
Incredible location! View is breathtaking!
This was a great house! Waking up every morning to the waves crashing was awesome! Our kids enjoyed exploring the rock and surfing out front. Private location but close enough to several restaurants, surf shop (Frijoles was great!)etc. thank you Kathy and Alan for being so gracious! We definitely had a memorable Pura Vida adventure!
thanks, see you next time.
Relaxed environment in a spectacular setting.
The house had a great relaxed vibe which I prefer on a beach vacation. Everything was in good shape and very clean but also very comfortable and not fussy. The upper porch overlooking the water was our favorite place to have coffee in the morning and cocktails at sunset. Alan and Kathy are great and were very helpful when we had a couple of minor repairs that needed to be made. I would definitely recommend.
thanks for the great review, great folks. see ya next time. Kathy & Alan
I cannot imagine a better beach house experience.
I cannot imagine a better beach house experience. All of our expectations were met and exceeded. This Beachhouse is as close as you can get to the water. This place is peace and quiet away from the noisy Costa Rican streets and cities. All you hear are the crashing waves from the ocean and the tropical birds in the trees. This Beachhouse is the best designed house on this uncrowned beach. It’s the ultimate relaxing beach experience hanging out on the spacious shaded upper balcony where there is a commanding view of the whole beach scene and fantastic sunsets. There’s a perfect mix of sunshine and shade from all the tropical vegetation on the property. My kids loved the pool located in the back of the house. The owners Alan and Kathy live in a small house at the back of the property and they are very nice people. We never felt like they were supervising our activities. They were helpful with any questions we had about the property or things to do. They recommended a lady who gave us an excellent massage. Their recommendation for private surfing lessons from Santiago and Maria were also an excellent experience for the whole family. They made it super easy because the massage lady came to the house and the surfing instructors also came to the house and gave us lessons in the ocean right out in front of the house. So easy and convenient. There is a good local restaurant and mini grocery store about a 10 to 15 minute walk away so we never needed to use our car. One day we took a cruise on a large catamaran, also from the list of recommended activities we found in the house. This was also an excellent experience and the cruise company picked us up and then dropped us off right at the beach house. We will definitely be back but only if we can rent this same house again. Thanks Alan & Kathy
thank you for being our guests, Kathy & Alan
A beautiful beachfront home! We are a family of four (2 grown sons). We were there for a week and felt like staying forever. The owners Alan and Kathy were great people - helpful and polite. Loved talking to them. The house was amazing! the views were to die for. We spent most of our time on the upper deck (when we weren't surfing) just doing nothing. The location was perfect. You can do as much or as little as you like. Thank you Alan and Kathy for sharing your home with us.
thanks for a great review. see ya next time.
direct aan het strand met een semi-prive surfstrand recht voor de deur, we zijn 4 seconden naar het strand. moet vulkanen zien, de rivier boottocht naar de apen te zien, catamaran tours met snorkelen recht voor de deur.
