Overview

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! Even the 4X4 road to the house is fun! 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.

About The Owner

We live and work in Walnut Creek, California, east of San Francisco. Our children and grandchildren all live in the Bay Area.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2003

Why The Owner chose Playa Matapalo

This get-a-way property allows us to enjoy an entirely different ecosystem and culture, as well as provides us a place to read and rest. We like the slow pace, but being near so many fun adventures.

Peaceful Slice of Paradise

  • 4 of 5
We spent a wonderful holiday week with our adult son and daughter at this very private piece of paradise conveniently located on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Local wildlife sightings as well as a diverse array of exotic flowers around the home rival that of nearby Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio and Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge. A variety of colorful parrots and toucans joined us each evening on the patio for the fabulous sunsets. The open air design and ceiling fans compliment the ocean breeze and help keep the home cool in the evenings. The pool is ideal for laps or just floating about and enjoying the view of the jungle and Pacific Ocean.

This beautiful and secure home, perched on a bluff above Matapalo and only a few minutes from the main highway, is reached by taking a steep winding road through the dense jungle. Good dining is available in Matapalo as well as Quepos, Dominical and further South in Ojochal where there are a couple of excellent gourmet restaurants. Fresh local fish is also available in Domincal and can be barbequed at the house. Shopping is available in nearby Quepos, Dominical and further south in Uvita where most groceries and dry goods commonly found in Europe and the US can be found, including some surprisingly good wines from Chile and Argentina. The home is just a few minutes from Playa Matapalo, where we had the entire beach to ourselves.

We also rate this place as a 4.5 – it would be a 5 except for a couple of maintenance issues. We wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to return in the future

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.
