VILLA - RAINFOREST SECLUSION, 3 MASTER SUITES AND PRIVATE POOL

Tarcoles Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

LOCATED 3 MINUTES FROM ENTRANCE OF CARARA NATIONAL PARK!!!!!!

Why settle for an 500 square foot room in a hotel, when you can relax in a spacious 2,700 square foot private villa with private pool.

LOCATION:

Casa Tica Linda is conveniently located only 33 miles from the international airport in San Jose and on the popular Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Casa Tica Linda is located a few miles north of Herradura Beach and and the bustling popular tourist destination of Jaco Beach. As soon as you enter the front door, you are greeted with a panoramic view of the rainforest covered mountain located on the opposite bank of the beautiful Tarcolitos River.

ACCOMMODATIONS:

Casa Tica Linda is absolutely perfect for one, two or three couples or a large family.

3 private Master Suites, each with a king bed, a spacious bathroom.

Walk-in closets and lots of storage space.

The Butterfly Suite features a panoramic view of the surrounding rainforest and private access to the pool and deck.

The Macaw Suite has a private patio and waterfall fountain.

The Toucan Suite has views of the rainforest, access to the backyard and pool, and a jetted tub and shower combination.

KITCHEN/DINING:

The spacious combined kitchen and dining room make it the perfect space for all guests to gather for meals, games, etc. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and features granit counter tops and new stainless steel appliances. A whisper quiet washer and dryer are conveniently located in a closet off the dining room. The kitchen/dining room offers views of the pool and the surrounding rainforest.

LIVING ROOM:

The living room features seating for six and includes a 42” LCD flat screen HDTV with cable and DVD/CD. As in the dining room, the living room has views of the pool and rainforest.

EXPERIENCE THE SERENITY OF THE RAINFOREST:

If you want to stay in the middle of the hustle and bustle and nightlife of nearby Jaco Beach, then Casa Tica Linda is not for you. However, if you want to experience the real Costa Rican tropical rainforest with the unique opportunity of spotting the rare Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, monkeys, etc. from the privacy of your own private pool and deck, then Casa Tica Linda is your ticket to a tropical paradise.

NEARBY AMENITIES AND ACTIVITIES:

The private serenity of Casa Tica Linda is only 15 to 20 minutes from the Los Suenos Resort and all of its amenities as well as the exciting nightlife, restaurants, and shopping of Jaco Beach, one of the most popular tourist and surfing destinations of all Costa Rica. It is also just minutes away from Carara National Park, Pura Vida Gardens, the Tarcoles River where you can book tours to view crocodiles and birds. There are also several near-by canopy tours with zip lines, hikes with hanging bridges, rainforest trams, golf, world-class sport fishing, surfing, fine dining, and casinos.

SECURITY: Equipped with an ADT security system.

MAID SERVICE:

Daily maid service comparable to up-scale hotels is included. You may make arrangements for the maid to do your laundry and/or ironing.

EXTRA LARGE GROUPS AND FAMILIES:

For those with extra large families or groups, Casa Maganda, the luxury villa located next door may also be booked. See VRBO Listing #228323 for a complete description. The two units together can accommodate up to twelve persons.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Diane,



We got back late Sunday and have been trying to catch up at the office ever since. We had a great time. Casa Tica Linda was very nice, very well kept and perfect size for three couples. Buck and the other folks we met couldn’t have been any nicer and your help with directions and suggestions made the trip very easy. None of us are beach people so instead we did a lot of touring of the rain forest and river, hiked in the national park and made a couple of jaunts down to Jaco but mainly just relaxed and enjoyed the scenery and the serenity. We sampled several of the local restaurants in the book and enjoyed trying the local foods.



Thanks for all your help and please let Steve know how much we enjoyed it.

Our names are Steve and Bobbie Sheets. We live in Round Rock, Texas, which is just 20 miles north of Austin. I am an attorney and Bobbie is retired after over 20 years of teaching eighth grade English. We have one son, Travis. The bird's name is Blue Boy who leads a pampered life at Pura Vida Gardens, which is just 10 minutes up the mountain from our house in Costa Rica.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2009

This is actually our second vacation rental property in Costa Rica. We decided to purchase this property as an investment because we have fallen in love with Costa Rica in general and the Central Pacific Coast area in particular. Casa Tica Linda is located right next door to our other property VRBO #228323 which helps in the management and offers our guests with larger families or groups the option of two adjacent properties.

The best thing about this property is that it has three private master suites. This allows three couples to vacation together and share costs without sacrificing their privacy. Because the villa wraps around the pool on three sides, the pool and deck become part of the living space. It is so peaceful to relax on the deck and simply enjoy the sights and sounds of the river and surrounding rainforest.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA IN COSTA RICA

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I along with a couple of friends stayed at Casa Tica Linda in Tarcoles, Costa Rica for about a week. The villa we stayed in was well advertised. The house was well maintained, the area around the house was so beautiful, and the owner, the property manager, and everybody involved were so extremely helpful with everything. The pictures for the site do not do this property justice. It it so much prettier in person. I would recommend this property to anybody traveling to Costa Rica.

LOVE CASA TICA LINDA!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this amazing house and had such a wonderful time! It was our first to Costa Rica and the owner gave us so much info for our visit. The house is amazing and each bedroom is so private and has a private bath. Their property manager is amazing! He set up tours for us and gave us lots of great advice about places to eat & go. The house has a wonderful swimming pool and the yard backs up to a river. The landscaping is so well kept & best of all you have daily housekeeping which you don't normally get when you rent a house. I would recommend this location and if we make it back to Costa Rica we know where we will stay!

A PERFECT LOCATION, WITH BENEFITS!

  • 5 of 5
What an ideal situation for 3 couples enjoying a week long vacation (which wasn't long enough!). The home was beautiful, cool (after we figured out the AC units)and perfectly located for our agenda.
The house is just down the road, walking distance from Hotel Lapas, where we enjoyed a canopy tour and met Randall, who served as out guide for a trip to Cararra National park the next day too. Carrara is only about 5-10 drive from the house too.
We were blessed with a back yard visit from a toucan at least 4 mornings while sitting out drinking our coffee. The scarlett macaw couple also made multiple appearances. The abundance of bird life and sightings were more than we expected and made us glad we brought our binoculars.
After dark the cacophony of sound from the lizards and frogs was delightful.
We enjoyed the pool, almost daily, as it was very warm and humid during our visit.

From the first contact with Diane, till the day we left, we always felt like there was support to meet our needs when anything did arise. i can't thank Diane enough for the very detailed driving instructions she sent, including photos of road sign and "ceda" instructions! Made getting to Casa Tica LInda a breeze.
Wish we had these instrustions when driving to Arenal Volcano. The GPS evidently got confused and our 3 1/2 hr drive turned into a 4 1/2 hour adventure. The friendly Tica's at a road side "soda" drew us perfect directions and we finally made it. We also ended up buying a map and found this to be very helpful.

The staff seemed very helpful and pleasant. Buck is very attentive, stopping in several evenings to check on things and offering to book day trips, recommend eateries, etc. We unfortunately were unable to make the ziplining he had arranged, 1st because of a teriffic rainstorm, then because of the "montezuma's revenge" that 3 of us of were inflicted with after our trip to the volcano.
But we all survived and were at the Beaches in 24 hours:)
Would I recommend this home to a friend. Yes, without hesitation.
The cost is very reasonable. the home accomodating, the staff and owner's, who we had the pleasure of meeting, are all helpful and available. Better service than most hotels! The beds were comfortable, the TV in the living room worked great. Lots of programs in English too.

INCREDIBLE STAY IN COSTA RICA

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this property! It is a beautiful and spacious 3 master bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, gated home. The grounds are groomed perfectly and the pool in the back adds a nice touch. The home has all the amenities from home and we felt so comfortable being here for 9 days. It is in a perfect location near Villa Lapas Hotel and Suites and Pura Vida Gardens. We enjoyed meeting Buck who manages the property, along with Norilyn who cleans the house each day! We did so many wonderful things during our stay here. The book that the owner provides lists all the restaurants and activities in the area. I highly recommend going through the book, as they were great ideas. We particularly enjoyed Rainforest Canopy, Jaco surfing, hike up to Bijuagual Falls, Rancho Shadday, Tropical Bungee, Jaco Taco Bar, Hermosa Beach, Tico Tico Tours, sunset from Villa Caletas, Manuel Antonio Park, and so many others. Make sure to lounge on the back porch in the mornings so you can see and photograph the beautiful scarlet macaws. What a site! We loved our time here and the only regret is not having more downtime. There is just so much to do and see while in Costa Rica. So, that just means another trip to visit this beautiful country. We will definitely visit again. Enjoy your stay here at the incredible Casa Tica Linda!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME.

  • 5 of 5
The home is gorgeous with 3 large master suites. The kitchen/laundry room had everything we needed or desired. Buck/Nelson/Nora were so helpful and available when we needed them. The area is really nice for those who like to eat out or have some adventure. It was a perfect location to end our trip as it took less than 1 1/2 hours to get to the airport. The home owners are obviously very detailed and didn't forget anything - dehumidifier in the house as well as emergency lights that came on during a short electric outage. Wifi worked well. Take time to read the "master book" on the coffee table and all questions will be answered about the house and things to do in the area. It was a lovely well-managed home to spend our last few nights in Costa Rica.

GORGEOUS TICA LINDA

  • 5 of 5
I travelled to Costa Rica in June, 2012 with my husband and two teenage children (16 & 19), and what a memorable experience we had! We were in awe of Casa Tica Linda from the minute we entered, and I cannot say enough words to describe it except no hotel room could ever beat the "at home" feeling that we felt during our six day stay. It was clean and well maintained, and everyday Noilyn would come in, pick up, and make the beds, offering a welcome and refreshing feeling of coming home after touring all day. The property is absolutely gorgeous, nestled in the tropical rainforests, and we felt safe and secure at all times. The property manager, Buck, became our friend and greeted us from the minute we arrived and was always available to assist in any way possible. In fact, we couldn't decide where to start for our first day, and Buck suggested and made all the arrangements for us to take the Crocodile Man Tour and all we had to do was show up! He was also very helpful in offering suggestions when we asked and was an enjoyable person to talk to.

During our stay, we took the 8:00 a.m. Crocodile Man Tour (while the crocodiles were still hungry). We also booked a fishing trip with Gino and Nema through Tico Style Tours, and what a treat that was. We caught a spanish mackeral and Nema dove for lobsters, and after we went snorkeling, Gino and Nema cooked our catches on a private beach, where we swam and also enjoyed fresh pineapple and watermelon. And Gino even spotted a monkey for us in the trees! We also rented four wheelers in Jaco (Adventure Tours) and took the 4 hour trip through the mountain, which included stops at a waterfall where we cooled off, a stop at "Rancho Shaddy" for a refreshing snack, and lunch at a gorgeous talapia farm. We rode horses on the beach one morning and took a guided tour of Manuel Antonio National Park. Hiring a tour guide is definitely worth the money because without him, we would not have seen anything near what we saw. We were able to take some amazing pictures through his spotting scope. We enjoyed many of the restaurants suggested in the book provided for guests, including Outback Jacks, Steve and Lisa's, and La Fiesta del Mariscos. All were exceptional! We also enjoyed a beautiful sunset and drinks at Vila Caletas.

Our stay would not have been half the experience if we had not stayed at Casa Tica Linda! It was very inviting and I would definitely recommend it, and if I ever have the opportunity, I will surely go back!
