Our group of 5 couples cannot express in words how spectacular this vacation was for us. This was our second time to Costa Rica and by far the best tropical vacation we have enjoyed. 11 nights and 12 days of paradise. It started with the easy correspondence with Joan the owner and filtered all the way down to Dervin at yellowfin fishing tours. Every contact information Joan provided worked out wonderful. Yellow fin and their staff ensure all types of tours are available to you even down to a ride to the local festivals. Spend the money and rent the golf carts for your entire stay- well worth it! The caretakers Tomas and Janet are wonderful. They take of your requests and their cooking is wonderful. We had them cook on the night we arrive. This house is roomy and none of felt cramped. Very very clean. As per other's comments everything was wonderful. Food in the local restaurants was wonderful - every single meal!NOT one thing to complain about!!! You must arrange the river tour of the wildlife and the catamaran sunset and snorkel with Yellow fin . If I was going with a large group again to Costa Rica I would return to this house.
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
A 30 second walk to the beach..the only house along the beach with a pool. Beautiful ocean breeze..sunsets..amazing night sky. close walk to stores, restaurants and beach bars. Beautiful house and house staff were awesome. Always felt at home and very safe. I will return again. My best vacation so far.
6 ladies from Alberta Canada stayed here Feb 2-11 2017 . This is a must stay at Villa. You hear the waves every night. Your 30 second walk to the ocean every morning is to die for. It's the only villa on the ocean beach with a pool. We watched the sunset from the pool. Caretakers Tomas and Janet are the best. They totally took care of us. Joan was extremely kind to allow us in early due to our flight arrival time. Thanks Joan. We saw a lot of wildlife right from our own backyard. I've never had a better vacation than this..highly highly highly recommend this house for your stay.
Let me begin to tell you; I was a travel agent for many years. This is by far the nicest, most relaxed and well appointed private villa rental I have experienced. Just a perfect family spot. Morning walks on the beach, coffee in hand watching the sunrise. The pool is sparkling clean. The caretakers, Tomas and Janet are always there to help, suggest and accommodate. I recommend Janet's massage. She is very professional. The owner, Joan is a joy to work with. She will make your stay comfortable. The "stock the fridge" is a very nice service; however, do be advised that any of your favorite food items that have been imported cost 3 times the price you would pay in the states. There are activities from extreme sports to relaxed and low key sightseeing and world class fishing. We were impressed with how the Costa Ricans are becoming eco-friendly and protecting their land and animal species. The family loved this villa so much we have plans to return.
I recently had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful home! It was right on the beach and as beautiful as all of the pictures! Tomas and Janet were amazing! I used Janet's personal services and received a very relaxing massage - right in the home! Wonderful!! Tomas made breakfast for us on our last day and it was beyond fabulous. The home is very clean and the property is very well maintained. The owner of the property was very helpful and provided us with great tips for our trip! We enjoyed many of the beautiful and amazing things to do in Costa Rica. We experienced a wonderful zipline adventure, ATV trip through some of the back roads/rivers in the area, a sunset catamaran trip which included snorkeling, lunch and open bar! We explored many of the beautiful beaches in the area and could not say more about how wonderful this experience was. The home was very secure/safe and the amenities were perfect (especially the air conditioning in all of the bedrooms!). If you are looking for a great family home for your vacation, I would highly recommend the Corazon del Mar!!
There were thirteen of us---grandma (me), grandpa, our two daughters, their husbands, and six grandchildren. Our ages ranged from 77 to 14. We all agreed that this was the best vacation ever. We utilized the suggestions from the owner and the website. Used yellowfin for transportation and activities... rented two golf carts... we tried to do EVERYTHING -- zipline, horseback riding, water slides, and had a terrific time. The house was wonderful--plenty of room for us all and a wonderful combination of "public" rooms with still enough space for [privacy if desired. We had Tomas make dinner for us the night we arrived, which I would heartily recommend. It was delicious and so plentiful that we had assorted left overs for three days! e would love to come againj.
