Anick as begin a new carreer recently as Travel Agent, and Kenny just sold his Automotive repair business to Import and sell Electronic target for shooting sports.

Kenny Proulx purchased this house in 2014

Why Kenny Proulx chose Guanacaste

Costa Rica surpassed every other destinations as it has a lot of attractions, beaches, sports like all year surf, eco-tourism, no really bad weather. Very hot sea so you don't need wetsuit for watersport. You can go there all year round as Guanacaste is the driest Province of CR, so it usually doesn't rain all week in rainy season. It has a really negligeable violent crime, and feel really safe. When searching for a home, Casa de Valencia always stayed on top condo we visited. It is really close to the beach, so if you forget something at the house, you just don't loose much time for going back for it! It is far enough from the disco club of downtown so you have peaceful night. Garden is very luxurious and it feel COSTA RICA!

What makes this house unique

Casa de Valencia was previously owned by Debra, she kept the place attractive and in perfect shape. We intend to keep it that way. Most condo you visit lack of glasses, towell or sometimes miss maintenance, all things you will have plenty at Casa de Valencia.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to be in this oasis! We had everything we needed and couldn't have been more pleased. It is right across a small road from the most beautiful peaceful peace but you are a 5-10 minute walk from great restaurants and shops. We did not rent a car because we like to walk but we did arrange with the rental company to stock groceries for us. We also restocked by taking a cab. (2 teenagers--lots of food required.)

Beautiful get away from the noise of Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay. All amenities provided and a very nice, comfortable space. Kenny & Annick, you were wonderful in helping us to prepare for a lovely visit from pick-up and drop off at the airport and you made wonderful recommendations. All spot on. (NOTE to others: We wavered from their fishing recommendation and our advice: DON'T - they know what they are recommending; our random choice was terrible) The pool was perfect for our 8 year old son when he tired of the heat on the beach. Close to everything, yet quietly tucked away. Monkeys, parrots...we even had our own little iguana who we named (I'm sure she gets a new name each time) - but did NOT feed! ;-) HIghly recommend - it couldn't have been easier.

Enjoying Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful three weeks at Casa de Valencia sharing our time with family and friends who came and went during the time we were there. For the first time in our many travels, though never to Costa Rica, we did not rent a car. Given the location of the villa and all of the activities and transportation options available, we did not miss having one. Getting to and from the airport in Liberia was very easy and can be arranged through the rental office or a van or taxi can be easily arranged from the airport.

The villa itself was very comfortable and the outdoor patio, dining and pool area wonderful. We spent most of our time outdoors and loved the visits from birds, iguanas and monkeys. The staff at Casablanca was friendly and helpful and provided any assistance we needed. We did most of our own cooking and enjoyed the outdoor grill, fully equipped kitchen and proximity to the local grocery store and fresh fish market. Kenny provided a handy wheeled shopping cart which made life very easy!

We enjoyed the beach, ocean, pool and various tours of the area. Most of all, we loved being able to hang out on our wonderful and secluded patio reading, and reveling in the Pura Vida life. We enjoyed it so much that we're hoping to spend a month next year at wonderful Casa de Valencia.

Owner's Response: When i bought the place, it was already a great place, so i do not have a lot of merit, but one of the improvement that came from me was the little two wheel cart... a must :) Glad you liked it! Kenny
