Villa Vista Mar is a classic Spanish villa with spectacular ocean views. The attractive one bedroom apartments rent daily or weekly. Each has a fully equipped kitchen, private bath and balcony. We also have a large swimming pool, jacuzzi, tropical gardens, outdoor kitchen with barbeque, dining area and washer and dryer. Free wifi. We're located in Playa Ocotal, on the spectacular Gulf of Papagayo and our villa is a short walk to two beaches. While enjoying the seaview from your room or balcony you can hear the sounds of the howler monkeys, parrots, and ocean waves. Your hosts, Ed and Lorrie Scanlan, live on the premises and offer personalized service and advice.
The positive reviews on Tripadvisor helped seal the deal for our stay at Villa Vista Mar which is perfectly named. Offers an enticing view of Ocotal and the Golf of Papagayo. Ed & Lori live on premises and are generous, helpful & gracious hosts.
Our family of 4 had apt 3 and we were cozy and comfortable. The apartment was exceptionally clean with no bugs. (Which is impressive in Costa Rica.)
It would be a great spot for a Romantic get away.
The outdoor seating areas ie. kitchen, grill &pool offered opportunities for relaxing and /or socializing with other guests. Many if the guests at VVM have returned for many years.
Ed is quick witted, has a wealth of information on the area and is the consument host, respectful of privacy without being intrusive.
Playa Ocotal is a great beach for families. Great snorkeling and tide pools right off the beach only a 10 minute walk away. The snorkeling was better right off shore than with the local tour we took. We saw 100's of fish!! Puffers, needlefish, clown fish etc.
We only travel with one carry on each so the laundry area was helpful.
We regret being unable to stay longer this time but, hope to return next year too stay longer!!
We tend to do much of our own cooking and can be kitchen snobs so our one feedback suggestion would be more silverware.
There excellent selection of books. 2 cabinets full!
If you want to try tico spool fishing the beach is perfect. We were there on a Sunday and here were 20 to 30 fisherman lined up shoulder to shoulder. It was really neat to see.
Lots of restaurants within a 15 min drive.
Lots of Supers nearby which we tend to favor for shopping while in CR.
Playa Coco is a 10 minute drive.
Stayed November 2014, fingers cross for a return visit in the next year.
