The View of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

Villa RocMar was everything that was promised and so much more! The villa was perfect. It was clean and comfortable. Views from every single room. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to make fantastic meals while we were there. The family room and kitchen layout was open so we were able to all engage even while cooking. The kids (and adults) loved the recreation space. Pool table, card table, bumper pool and ping pong table were enjoyed by us all.

The best part of this villa though was the outdoor space. We took full advantage of the lanai area that had a 12 person table that was able to accommodate our group of ten for meals. With the ceiling fans in motion, it was never too hot. The grill was large and worked well. The extra refrigerator came in handy for drinks, so we did not have to go into the house wet after swimming. Same for the outdoor bathroom.

Without a doubt though were the spectacular views! I asked our group, adults and kids, what their top three experiences were on the trip and every single person included the views. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Lovely during the day to see the boats in the water, islands and Monkey Rock! We would have been happy laying by the pool all day and night just enjoying the views!

We came to Costa Rica to celebrate my 50th birthday! We will be back some day and we would 100% stay at Villa RocMar!

Perfect Home for a Perfect Time Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 including 6 adults and 4 young ones were there for Christmas week. In over 10 years using VRBO, this was the most perfect and best place we have ever stayed. (even had a Christmas Tree!) The caretakers, Carmen and Marlon were very helpful and hardworking. The Management Team of Papagayo Realty was great to work with and were able to arrange for our every need. I couldn't get internet in the master bedroom (poor me) but the great reception with coffee at the pool more than made up for it. Everything worked and preparing meals was a pleasure with the well-outfitted kitchen and barbecue. Carmen prepared breakfast for us every morning for a very reasonable fee and we absolutely loved her Costa Rican breakfast fare. That was the most pleasant surprise aside from perfection of everything else. Thanks to the owner for sharing!

Book now! We had such an incredible trip and the biggest part of that was this amazing home with out of this world views. The accomodations were perfect for our multi generational family. Caretakers Carmen & Marlon made our trip even better than we could of imagined with their help and delicious Costa Rican meals. We felt like royalty during our 8 day stay. We hope to come back soon! Thank you!

Villa Rocmar - Everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this property are spot on as this villa is magnificent! My experience was textbook perfect. The owner was quick to respond during the entire process and the management company's suggestions were excellent and very helpful. Playa Hermosa and Playa Coco were both the types of atmosphere we were looking for on this trip which was laid back. We did take a trip to Tamarindo which had WAY more activity than Hermosa or Coco and we were very happy with our choice of area. Another key point about the area is that you are only about 1/2 hour from the Liberia airport. I would HIGHLY recommend getting a rental vehicle or at the very least securing a driver for a trip here as well. Our group consisted of 4 couples and each bedroom having an ensuite was critical for us. This allowed each couple any privacy they needed. The pool is excellent and the view is....spectacular. If your group is looking for villa in a great location, with a full kitchen, plenty of space, and excellent views Villa Rocmar is worth exploring.

Amazing house, beautiful view and a very memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation at Vill RocMar was the most amazing experience we have had. The house was very clean and well taken care of. The house keeper and maintenance couple Carmen and Marlon were so wonderful to us. We gave them money and the took care of all the shopping we needed and made several delicious meals such as breakfast and dinners. She also did laundry and dishes and for all her efforts we gladly took care of them at the end. We felt very safe and cannot say enough good things about the home. Check in was very easy as the property manager drove us too the house and called us during our stay to make sure we were happy. There was a huge selection of movies to watch. We were able to hook up our iPhone and play music through the whole house which makes the mood fun. We had fresh towels every couple days and bed sheets were changed regularly I cannot say enough good things. We will be booking next year for sure.
