Villa Dos Gatos is a wonderful house to spend your vacation at. Thank you to Peter, Woody, and the staff for doing all that they could to make us comfortable. Though we had issues with the pool and did not get to swim in it, Woody worked diligently to correct the problem. Reygis the security guard is a great guy.

Things you should know:

The beach is roughly 100 steps (across the road ) from the front door. Wow!
The road does have some noticeable traffic, but it is not bad.
If on your way to Parrita to buy a few things, grab some mangos from the backyard to feed the monkeys at bridge exiting “PLAYA PALO SECO”.
You can swim for free at Coco Mar and Clandestino Beach Resort (if you purchase a café or beverage)

Take all Peters advise about shopping in Jaco before arriving to Villa dos Gatos.
Zuma Car Rentals in Jaco is the way to go! Other companies are a joke.
If you have a fav “beverage” pack TWO, or grab it at duty free on your way.
Pack some eco – friendly paper plates, cups, and forks (there is no dishwasher) and you do not want to become one.
Pack your fav snacks (just pack a carry on)
Definitely pack a can of mosquito repellant per person per week.

If you are out exploring:
We found great fish in between Jaco and Parrita near the restaurant Sin Rival (decent food give is a shot) and in Quepos.
Ziplining – ask Woody (Sky Mountain - he will refer you to the lady that works at the bar before exiting the isle. FYI, Sky mountain is on the LEFT 3.5k up the mountain. DO NOT PASS IT!!!

Again thank you to Peter, Woody, and the staff.

Our first trip to Costa Rica was in 2013. We had stayed at 5 different B&B's along the way and ended our vacation at Villa Dos Gatos. We loved it so much we returned again this year and rented the home for the entire week. We shared our excitement about our stay with the family, they accompanied us this year and were not disappointed. We were with a party of five and they felt the same as we did. The home is so inviting and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Each morning we had breakfast on the balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean watching the Pelicans surf the waves for fish. Since the home offers the use of surf boards, we had to try it! Each morning we walked along the beach and we may have seen 5 people, it is so private. We spent many hours in the pool and swam in the ocean which was surprisingly very warm and each evening we watched the unbelievable sunsets. We had done most of the cooking at the home, and being so close to the town of Parrita, it made buying groceries very easy, had a good selection of food and a market with fresh fruit. You also have the option of dinning out and have a good selection of local restaurants to choose from. We had the experience of eating at two of the local restaurants and the food was very good. We enjoyed two excursions during our stay. The prices were very reasonable and no concerns with finding the locations. Our hosts had provided a welcome binder which has all the information you need about the home, restaurants, day trips. I have had the opportunity to travel over the years and stay at many different locations. I would have to say Villa Dos Gatos is at the top of my list. You would not be disappointed in renting this home!
