Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly like in the pictures: very welcoming and cozy. The beach in front of the house has black sand and sparkles - super cool. The house is equipped with boogy boards and kayaks which were fun to use. There is a small market about 10 minutes walking distance from the house so it was easy to pick up extra things we needed. Thomas and Janet were amazing. Thomas cooked every night for a fee - the meals he prepared were incredible and we usually had some leftovers. Joan was very helpful from srart to finish. She answered all the questions in a timely manner and fixed any concerns that arose. I would highly recommend staying in the house. We also booked several tours using YellowfinTours through Dervin and we had a great experience with them, as well.

Reviewer Comments:

Corazon del Mar far surpassed our expectations. We went during the "rainy/slow" season and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was private, beautiful and conveniently located right on Playa Potrero - walking distance to several great restaurants. The town of Playa Potrero is small and quaint, with a few markets and great restaurants. We rented golf carts from Chip and Jennifer which allowed us to zip around the local community with ease, including trips to Playa Flamingo and Playa Penca for excellent body surfing and boogie boarding. The afternoons and evenings were a bit warm and humid(the common areas have no air conditioning, but the bedrooms do). However, we had no problem staying cool with the multiple fans and pool and ocean with perfect temperatures. We really enjoyed the 2-3 evening thunderstorms we experienced while sitting out on the pool deck, sipping Imperials and frozen blended rum drinks while watching the light show over the ocean. We also enjoyed our tropical visitors: a talented iguana, two cute sand crabs active in the evenings, a pair of black phoebes that showcased their dragonfly hunting skills, pelicans, and sea turtles (well offshore). Our hosts Tomas and Janet were amazing and helped us out anytime we needed them, but stayed out of our way otherwise. Don't pass up the opportunity to let Tomas prepare an amazing meal for you, and make sure to receive one of Janet's great one-hour massages right on the pool deck. They will also shop for you if you ask (for a small additional fee). In addition to the awesome accommodations at the villa, we really enjoyed the small town vibe of Playa Potrero, the friendly people and the fact that we felt completely safe during our entire trip (everywhere we traveled). If you are lucky enough to visit the region, I highly recommend a sunset sail, a canopy zip line visit and a boat tour on the Tempisque River. Overall, we fell in love with the area and will

Reviewer Comments:

We spent a week at Villa Corazon del Mar and had a fabulous time! The house was perfect for our group of 15-- very spacious and the location is perfect. The owner, Joan, was extremely helpful and provided valuable information that made our stay absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this rental if you have a large family or group. It's perfect for kids with a beautiful pool and beach location. We had Tomas and Janet cook our first dinner and breakfast, which worked out great! I enjoyed a few massages from Janet which were wonderful! We rented a few golf carts which were very handy in getting around nearby beaches and restaurants. This house is so family-friendly -- definitely recommend it!

Family Vacation Paridise!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a family vacation with so many great memories. We had 5 adults and 4 children ranging in ages from 63 to 5 yrs old. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and I cannot say enough how helpful Joan was in so many ways. She offered us all kinds of information that helped us schedule transportation, excursions, restaurant recommendations, and shopping in the area. The property was perfect for our family. Plenty of open areas to be together and spacious bedroom suites for quiet time. The show stopper of the property are it's gorgeous ocean views. The sunsets are breathtaking and the pool was the highlight for the kids!

The caretakers Tomas and Janet are very sweet people who do everything they can to not interrupt your vacation yet keep the home and pool area clean for you. We enjoyed Janet's wonderful massages and Tomas created a delicious sea bass dinner for us one night. Do not hesitate to take Joan's recommendations to use Yellowfin for transportation and excursions they were fantastic!! Especially Gervin, he was great with our kids and so helpful selecting excursions for everyone. We went on the Buena Vista tour, some did the surfing in Tamarindo and golfing. We rented a golf cart from Chip & Jennifer which came in very handy as we decided to forego renting a car this trip but the golf cart was so handy for daily trips to the produce stand and market.

All in all it was a perfect family vacation with a great mix of exciting excursions and just chilling out at the pool!

Thank you so much!

A fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 people in our group (3 families of 4 each) and this house was perfect! The house itself is great for a large group, 5 separate bedrooms and a big common area, plus the back pool area. You really cant beat the setup...you're out of the pool and on a boogie board literally in seconds. Everything was well maintained and Tomas and Janet were always close if we needed anything. We had Tomas prepare dinner for us the night of our arrival and the food was great - leftovers for a couple of days. Joan (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with, and offered several suggestions, all of which were spot on. She'll get you in touch with a great tour company if you wish for airport transfers. We used that same company to arrange a day trip to an adventure park and another day trip to Rio Celeste - both were fantastic. Each family also rented a golf cart from a local company and I cant recommend that enough - not that there's anything wrong with sitting by the pool, but it really gives you the freedom to explore the local communities, beaches, and restaurants. All of us agreed it was one of the best vacations we've ever taken. Cant wait until we get the chance to go again!

Reviewer Comments:

Our group of 10 went on an adult only trip without our children. This was the most perfect house to rent. Even though we did not bring our children we all agreed that it would be a great place to bring our families. The location was perfect! Joan gave us lots of recommendations for transportation restaurants services and Moore. This is a very well organized rental. Thomas and his wife were very attentive. We received massages that were wonderful. Thomas was a very wonderful cook and we received delicious meals. I highly recommend this rental to anybody!
