Our group of 12 had a wonderful time at Villa Durazno, made all the better by David, the estate manager. He took care of every single one of our needs (although there weren't many) in a very timely fashion - we were quite fortunate that he was on the property all the time, in the casita next to the home. The home itself was immaculate: gorgeous view of the ocean, lovely infinity pool & jacuzzi, comfortable lounge areas outside and inside the home, spacious enough for everyone to have privacy when they needed it, etc. I believe the home is a 6 bedroom, 6 1/2 bath and I think I heard someone saying it was 12k sq. feet. I wasn't in charge of the reservation so I'm not sure of the exact square footage but it was pretty massive. Every room was a master suite, even though only 3 bedrooms were considered as such. There was air conditioning in every bedroom, and a central AC unit so you were never uncomfortable with the heat. One more quick note about the home: GORGEOUS, every detail of it. You will feel so spoiled staying there. Christmas was the perfect time to go - not too hot, and the mosquitos are kept at bay. I would love the opportunity to visit again Villa Durazno and the Guanacaste area of Costa Rica. We were definitely sad to go, but will certainly be keeping in touch with Dave.
We were an extended family of 11, age ranging from 10-77 staying at the villa for one week. Plenty of room for everyone especially the teenagers. Pool and view was the star attraction along with the wild life that surrounded the property from the howler monkeys in the trees just out back, the birds and butterflies taking a sip from the pool and even the insects. Plenty of space in the bedrooms and the common areas. Decor was exactly like those in the photos and Dave the onsite property manager was really helpful with suggestions of activities, beaches, restaurants and scorpion killing. The home was located in a gated community with security presence. The surrounding towns are small but we found everything necessary for a great experience. Plenty of beaches and activities to choose from and if you needed recommendations or someone to book something for you, Dave was on hand. Kitchen was well supplied with plates and cutlery for home cooked meals. The only thing missing may have been more serving bowls for large families but other than that everything else was provided even beach towels. Cleaning was once during our week which for us was enough. Paved drive leading up the home was much appreciated. The driveway does have a steep incline so becareful, but the two car garage was great on those hot days. The home was easy to get to and the area was not hard to navigate. All in all a wonderful once in a lifetime experience for everyone. If you have a large family or several couples with kids looking to stay at a nice and large home this should be on your list.
We stayed at Villa Durazno in March 2015 and had an absolutely fabulous time and couldn’t recommend it highly enough!
The Villa is everything we wanted and more, set in a private hillside location overlooking the Pacific Ocean, a perfect viewing platform to admire the vista and watch the amazing sunsets over the bay.
Dave the property manager, ensured, that from meeting us at airport until we left. Nothing was too much trouble, from making dinner reservations, suggesting where to go and what to see, to booking a boat for the afternoon with a brilliant skipper who knew the best deserted coves, where to snorkel and he even managed to coincide our ride back in alongside the dolphins as the sun was setting.
The villa is extremely spacious, yet intimate and furnished to a standard you would expect in a luxurious home. We made full use of the fantastic outside space; from lazing in the infinity pool and jacuzzi to just relaxing on one of the many loungers dotted around the terrace.
Check out the AquaSport bar down on the beach - fabulous food, drinks, atmosphere and service, for something a little more formal try Gingers fusion restuarant - Dave will point you in the right direction.
We will defiantly be back….Pura Vida!
A beautiful villa in a great location, perfect for relaxing or hanging out with friends and family. Highlights include; an incredible infinity pool, sound system, luxury sun loungers, gorgeous sunsets and Sam the dog! The manager (David) is amazing too. He has excellent knowledge of the local area and is happy to organise all activities and trips. The villa is a short drive from the beach. I highly recommend a trip to Aqua Bar for fish tacos and chilli guaros at sunset. Overall, very impressive and definitely worth a visit!
We – a party of 8 – stayed at this beautiful villa for a week in September 2012 and were amazed by the experience. We were looking for somewhere for a group of friends just to catch up and switch off from the outside world, and Villa Durazno fitted the bill perfectly. We were able to relax in the elegant luxury of what is a huge property as soon as we got there - a short journey from the airport – and the longer we stayed the more relaxed we became! The terrace and pool are the perfect setting to catch some sun, watch the local birdlife and see the spectacular sunsets out across the bay.
The bedrooms are more like studio apartments and the lounge, dining and kitchen areas were perfect for some extended meals and ‘social’ occasions!
We did venture out on a few occasions though…..and the local area has some very good restaurants and the local hotels and Coco offer a friendly bar scene for our crowd.
We have already booked to go back to the same place at the same time next year and cannot recommend it highly enough if you are looking for a beautiful get away venue .
The villa is located in the hilltops overlooking the Papagayo peninsula and the Panama Bay. There are numerous beaches, restaurants and bars within a short drive of the property. Coco and Hermosa are the closest small resorts, and are again both short drives.
For the more adventurous visitors, there are opportunities to go white water rafting or zip-lining or paddle-boarding along the beautiful coast. There are beautiful golf courses close by and the chance to go sailing/fishing in some of the world's most beautiful ocean waters are right here.
