~A~ TRUE COSTA RICAN ADVENTURE! AMAZING VIEW & BIRD WATCH, MINUTES FROM BEACH.

Playa Matapalo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Set in the jungle, above the village and beautiful beach of Matapalo on the Pacific Coast, this house invites you to have a true Costa Rican experience! Just minutes from the beach, there is an amazing 180 degree view of the ocean. Enjoy the local sightings of toucans, parrots, soaring hawks, several kinds of monkeys, coatis, blue morpho butterflies and many other wildlife visitors from the patio deck, while still being close to lots of activities and unique adventures. Have an action-packed vacation or just lie in the hammock by the pool and read.

The house has an open, comfortable feeling with tile floors and beautiful wood ceilings and doors. The kitchen, dining room and living room all open to each other and the outdoors. Ceiling fans throughout the house keep the cooler mountain air moving. Downstairs there is a master bedroom (queen bed) and connected bathroom, a single bed tucked under the stairway and another full bathroom. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms (1 w/double bed and single bed and 1 w/double bed only) and 1 full bathroom with a covered deck for bird watching and sunset cocktails.

Family vacations

  • 4 of 5
Our family has members that go from 1year and a half to 60 years old and we were all very comfortable at this place,we stayed for 4 days. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare any meal. The rooms are comfortable, big enough, the bathrooms are nice. The Fans and keeping the doors open are enough to get a nice temperature inside. The pool is ok for kids and adults, we got to see toucans every day!!!
The only issue we had is that we do not have a 4WD car and it is required to get there! there's no other way to get to the house (that's why the view is lovely from the balcony). But as costaricans , we are used to walk :), so it was not a big deal.
I recommend the place, the beach is not crowded at all. Very peacefull.

Days in Paradise

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I spent 18 days at this wonderful place. We enjoyed sitting in the pool at sunset, watching the Toucans and the parrots in the tree by the house. The location is ideal - close to beaches, many good resturants.

The caretaker (Greg) is enjoyable and helpful and enjoyable to visit with.

We rate this place a 4.5 - it would be a 5 except for some maintenance issues that I am sure are addressed by now. We would love to return in the future.
