WELCOME TO VILLA TUCAN TANGO & Casita

Thank you for looking at Villa Tucan Tango Vacation Home! You can stop here! You have found a truly amazing well - maintained home with a fantastic pool & view.

Luxurious & comfortable. Read the reviews!

We allow up to 8 guests to stay at the main Villa.

Always ask if we give discount's!

Special Rate Consideration given to parties of 4 or less.

First reaction when you step through the monkey carved door' of Tucan Tango is “Wow, what a view! And what a house!”

Villa Tucan Tango is 'One of a Kind' with 'SERIOUS TREE TOP CANOPY VIEWS. Comfortable living to the max! A kitchen to die for and a large breakfast bar to gather at or maybe use your computers. Large screen T.V that is awesome! You can even sit in the pool and T.V if you want.

Perfect for one couple to larger families.

The Villa is sitting next to 40 acres of the Tapir Biological Reserve so your spectacular view is Jungle Reserve, Mountains and Beach Coastline to Manuel Antonio Park.

Manuel Antonio is only 30 minutes away. Great day trip! Best of all, this fabulous 180-degree or more view and is only 300 ft. up, which means no long treks driving up to the top of the mountain to get home! This easy drive gives you more time for kicking' back with a glass of wine, or a Margarita, to enjoy a lovely sunset & the “Awesome” infinity pool.

Heads up! A 4x4 car is a must for the entire area of the Southern Zone known as Costa Ballena or the Dominical Area. Don't let anyone tell you different!

Extra Casita, We do have a wonderful Casita available if one of your family or friends staying at the main villa would like a little more privacy or room. Please email or call me for pictures. The Casita is only rented to guests staying at the Main Villa. It's prefect for 1 or 2 guests that would like more privacy but spend most their time at the Main Villa. Again with the Main Villa and Extra Casita the max is 8 guests. Price add on is $50 a night.

Ed and Nansie or a staff member will be there to help you with getting used to your surroundings. We are like your own private concierges. They can tell you where the best-hidden places are to eat, or help you with tours, cooks, massages etc. Also they know the best Car Companies in the area. They work for you! Or you can explore yourself! All is good at Villa Tucan Tango.

Perfect Place for an escape from winter

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot. We didn't want to leave! Nansie and Ed the owners are fantastic.

We came down for 10 days with a group of friends for a 50th birthday escape. Nansie was great in helping to arrange our transport from airport to the house with the help of Sonia from Uvita travel. The house had everything you need, great kitchen to cook in. No better place to watch the sunset! Pool is amazing, great place to relax, swim up bar is wonderful spot to get out of the sun but stay in the water. Great showers both inside and outside. Plenty of room in the house for 4 couples, each with their own bathrooms. Has satellite Tv but we hardly used it. they have a large selection of DVD's at the house.

Location is between Uvita and Dominical, good little grocery stores in both towns, local fish guy just 2 min from bottom of the driveway. 4x4 car rental is a good idea, driveway and getting to other places you will want to go is much easier. Great restaurants in Dominical, neat local places too.(PorQueNo was our favorite) Beaches are great, we did zip line tour and snorkeling tour both were very good. Not hard to get to any activities house is in a great spot.

Will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults enjoyed our week at Villa Tucan Tango. Our hosts, Ed & Nansie, were terrific, from arranging a awesome cook for a home cooked seafood New Year's Eve dinner to beach and restaurant recommendations. The villa is in a perfect location just south of Dominical and "only" a few minutes off Hwy. 34. This is our 5th trip to Costa Rica and by far the best location and accommodations. We are looking forward to returning. Pura Vida, Tom, Sally and family.

Awesome Christmas Stay at Villa Tucan Tango

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a lot of vacation homes over the last several years. Our stay at Villa Tuncan Tango is by far the best home, location, and hosts we have had in all our experience. Ed and Nansie made us feel welcomed even before we arrived. They have been incredibly kind and helpful from the point we inquired about their beautiful home, as we arrived at the villa and during our week's stay. I know many folks say this in reviews, but here it is true, the pictures don't do justice to the villa. The views, pool, suites, and living spaces allowed us feel "at home" and enjoy time as an entire family but also relax in our own space when needed. We enjoyed a wide variety of activities in the area, but we loved coming back to the villa each day to relax, swim, and watch the wildlife right from the back deck and pool. Thanks again Nansie and Ed for making us feel so welcomed in Costa Rica -- we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Nansie and Ed,

You guys are awesome! And your Villa is beyond amazing. We love everything about it! As you know, during our month –long stay in Costa Rica, “we tried out” four different residences, the last of which was Tucan Tango. None of the other Villas were even in the same ballpark as Tucan Tango! Our only regret during our trip was not booking the entire month at your villa.

Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us. And it was so nice to get to know the two of you. You were so helpful and gracious. It was so obvious to us now how you have been able to create such a successful rental business. We couldn’t possibly have had better accommodations if we had stayed at the Penthouse at The Marriott, nor would the service have been as good. You should be SO PROUD of what you do, because you are in business of helping others make memories that will last a lifetime—and no one does it better than the two of you.

Thank you!!

Wes & Vicki Mathis

A fantastic escape from reality

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at end of our holiday in Costa Rica, the villa is beautiful so much attention to detail in the design, furnishings and artwork. For me the best part about the villa was the view, we never drew the curtains so every morning I woke up in my immense bed as the sun came up and I could see and hear the ocean below. There is always a slight breeze as the house is up on a hill and because there are full size mosquito screens on every door and window we never neaded the air conditioning, the overhead fans were enough to keep us cool. We saw toucans in the trees and heard the howler monkeys nearby.The owners Ed and Nansie live next door and were super friendly and helpful re the best places to eat and things to in the area. We had a power cut one night and Nansie came up to make sure we were all ok and had candles and torches. In fact we were so chilled we were still just sat relaxing on the sofa and enjoying the darkness. My girls loved the infinity pool and the dogs and cats down by Nansie's house were a bonus. You have to drive to get to the beach but that was never an issue, do go to Hermosa beach, a no frills family beach where all the locals go, it's beautiful, one of my all time favourite beaches. Riding along the beach at ranch la Merced is worth doing too. If you don't mind a bumpy mountain road then go to the Jolly Roger, great margueritas and a beautiful place to watch the sun set. We had a very happy stay here, my only regret was that we hadn't brought some friends along to share it with.
