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'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!

Reviewer Comments:

Everything was as it said: - perfect location - away from the crowds but not isolated - private pool (which was very clean) - seconds away from the beach and the water - large, clean home - Tomas and Janet were helpful - Tomas helped us right away with a clogged kitchen sink - Janet was available to do massages on a couple of days - Tomas made us a wonderful dinner (mahi mahi, shrimp, salad, rice, and beans) - the grounds were cleaned - we felt very safe in the area - it was really great to have kayaks, lifejackets, body boards for guests-we were out there every day! Other notes - renting a golf cart is a great idea - the house has seen better days, as it shows its wear and tear, but it was by no means shabby. I just needs some touch ups. I didn't stop us from enjoying the place - just a small observation. - bug/ant traps would have been great as we did have ants in the kitchen

If you need a large house and are going to Costa Rica...this is a must for you!

  • 5 of 5

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.
