UNBELIEVABLE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were joined by another couple and stayed in the downstairs rooms. We had the times our our lives. The house is perfect for couples, families, surfers...whatever you want. We literally surfed everyday right out in from of the house. We're already looking to book another trip to Villa De La Roca. Alan and Kathy were great. I highly recommend this location!

PROS - EXCELLENT BEACH/LOCATION, COURTEOUS HOSTS; CONS - PROPERTY/FURNITURE COULD USE AN UPGRADE

  • 4 of 5
We (2 adults and a 2 1/2 year old child) stayed at Alan's and Kathy's house for 3 nights in May. The house is right on the beach and Playa Grande is fantastic, very secluded, private and huge beach, 5 stars! We had the top floor for us which has the master bedroom and 1 bathroom. It also has a loft with extra beds, small living room, kitchen and a huge outside veranda. The veranda is awesome and the views gorgeous, lots of wind too. The master bedroom had A/C and was useful because it was very hot during the time we were there (high of 35-37°C / 95-100°F). The pool was clean and had nice depth, however not for very small kids. The kitchen was well equipped though it could've used a microwave instead of a conventional oven. Kitchen didn't have any kind of condiments and it would've been better if it had the basic items stored (at least sugar, salt, pepper, may be coffee etc.). Some of the furniture is old and broken and could use some refurbishment as well. There is free Wi-Fi (spotty inside) and a small TV which gives you DirecTV programming from the US.

Alan and Kathy are very courteous and were helpful with all our needs. I think the housekeeping lady comes once a week. If you are annoyed by harmless insects or ants then it’s not the place for you. There are a few here and there, which never really bothered us. The place isn't really child proof (may be not for very young kids) but we were fine with it. Parking is on street, which is right outside of the gate. We found the area to be safe. Tamarindo is half an hour drive (20 kms) or you can go to the south end of beach (3-4 kms) and take the boat.

I have lived in the tropics for more than 20 years and this house reminded me of my granduncle's rustic home where I spent a lot of time growing up, very nostalgic. Loved the trees, the shades and the red tile flooring. I really want to leave 5 stars for this property, and once it gets a refurbishment it’s definitely a 5 star!

THE PLACE IS GREAT!!!

  • 5 of 5
I have been here twice and both the house and the beach are great, Alan and Kate very nice and is like staying at the beach because it's just right there. I love surfing now because of this place, its the best to stay in PG. About a comment I read I want to give an advice, the best surf trainer of the area is Santiago, I had a hard time with other classes but he was the only one able to put me over the surfing table and actually surf, ask for him, everybody around knows him and call him Santi...

BEST BEACH HOUSE EVER!

  • 5 of 5
My family of seven adults (three couples and mother-in-law) had a beautiful Christmas vacation at Villa de la Roca. We had the whole house--plenty of room for everyone when we gathered for family dinner, and plenty of room for each one to get away into a shady corner with a book. The house is just as described. Perfectly clean, very comfortable furnishings, serviceable appliances and kitchenware. The plush beach towels were an unexpected luxury.

The breeze through the house was delightful. The view from both patios over the beach is fabulous. The downstairs patio has two built-in benches with cushions that are great for napping (in addition to plenty of chaises to take on to the beach). The beach is wide and flat--perfect for all ages and swimming skills. We loved the pool for cooling off.

The neighborhood was quiet. Short walk to a hotel with a dining room and a couple of small bar/restaurants. Slightly longer walk to a small store. 20-minute drive to Tamarindo, with a larger super market on the way.

All the business dealings were simple and straightforward. Alan put us in touch with a wonderful chef who stocked the house and prepared dinner for us. Kathy made arrangements for a couple of excursions and for a massage therapist to come to the house. They were friendly, attentive hosts.

AMAZING BEACH HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from our first trip to Costa Rica and we had such a great time. The location of the house is unbelievable. Walk out the front gate and you are immediately on the beach. The house was clean and well maintained. The wrap around porch on the upper level was perfect for naps in the afternoon or to post up and read a book. Kathy and Alan were amazing hosts and available to answer questions or provide places to visit at any time. We would absolutely come here again!

YOU PEOPLE ARE UNBELIEVEABLE

  • 5 of 5
I met Allen in the line-up many years ago when I was a kid and he just paddled up to me and my friends and invited us to stay at his place. Ever since then damn near every year we go back and stay with Allen and Kathy. They are some of the nicest most hospitable, laid back people and Kathy can cook some mean fish burritos! Some of the best days of my life were spent there and many of life's goals were planned and concocted while sitting on the porch. For those of you that saw bugs.... hello, its a rainforest in central america!!! Go stay in Tortugas hotel, my friend got bit by a scorpion in the bed! For those that complained this is obviously not their type of vacation, you should maybe go on a Disney cruise and visit their fake islands like all the other masses of tourists. Allen and Kathy's place is for the true travellers who want an authentic home in another land. So please don't go back there because its bad enough everybody else loves the place and its getting harder and harder to get an opening on their calendar! Thanks Allen and Kathy for the many years of wonderful memories and all you have ever done for myself and friends. Ben...
