You will have an incredible vacation in the Villa Corazon an Costa Rica.
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.
We loved this home and wished we stayed longer than 3 days. The home itself is open, and worked perfectly for our family gathering of 18 people (3 generations, 10 kids.) Lots of beds-enough for everyone. Beautiful home and kitchen with lovely decor (very California-open) and high ceilings. The pool was superb. Not huge, but not too small. A large shallow area was great for the kids. The infinity edge was perfect for viewing the sunset from. The beach is a mere steps away and the waves were PERFECT for boogie boarding. Even my 70+ year old parents had fun doing it! Janet and Tomas were great. Very helpful--wonderful to have fresh food made for us. Their gallo pinto and nicaraguan chicken, garlic and butter shrimp and fish...all delicious. Nearby, within walking distance are restaurants and small markets. Kids loved the netflix access at night. Thanks for allowing us to stay here! Would stay here again FOR SURE. An easy 50 minute drive from airport.
Fantastic visit!!! First of all, Joan was fantastic in helping with the arrangements! When we arrived there fridge completely stocked as we had asked....Tomas and Janet were amazing!!! The end of our trip to Costa Rica and we couldn't have asked for a better time! Thank you!
Our family of 14 (grandparents plus 3 families) from ages 9 to 74 loved our stay here. We had 7 adults and 7 children, with lots of room for all. We enjoyed several meals cooked by Tomas and 5 of us had wonderful massages by Janet. The boogie boards were a big hit and the pool was crystal clear and inviting. The sand gets hot in the afternoon, so beach shoes would help. The home is set up with the bedrooms in the four corners of the house and a large sleeping room on the second floor so there was lots of privacy. One of our members has a disability and was able to easily use her electric scooter to move around the house and patio/pool area. There were ample poolside chairs including rockers and loungers, and beach towels provided. The sunsets and star gazing are incredible. We used Dervin and his company Yellowfin to and from the airport, a couple trips to Tamarindo, and two tours. He had just the right size bus for our whole group. He an his employees were wonderful. We booked Henrik from the Beach Chocolate Factory who came to the house and gave us a wonderful hands-on lesson about chocolate. Joan was great to work with, responding quickly and patiently to my endless questions. The house was described accurately and was even more spacious when we got to see it in person. You may hear a monkey on the roof in the morning, and occasional group of cows that wander by wanting to drink from the pool. This is a small town quiet area where you can rest and relax with no vendors hawking their goods. Restaurants and groceries are within walking distance. The only glitch was problems connecting to the internet, which Joan is trying to get resolved. Plan on extra funds to tip the caretakers and tour guides. We left with wonderful memories!
