Welcome to the ultimate in beachfront homes on the beautiful Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Little expense has been spared to make Villa Corazon Del Mar (heart of the sea)the Villa you have always dreamed of renting.

The Villa has recently been completed. Special amenities include an infinity edge pool that blends with the ocean. The pool has a swim up bar and therapy jets in a whirlpool area. On the patio is a bar/barbeque area. Two ocean kayaks and boogie boards are waiting for you to have fun in the ocean only a few steps from the patio. The gourmet kitchen has a beautiful granite top bar that can seat up to 10 people. The dining room table make of local guanacaste wood is large enough to easily seat 10 for exquisite dining.

As you enter the home you will feel the warmth of Costa Rican woods as they are used throughout. The high ceilings, the cabinets, shelves and some of the flooring is made of a blend of the pleantiful woods indigenous to the area.

The Villa is filled with original art work. Paintings, tapestries and carvings from Central America and the Islands collected over the last 30 years by the owner are on display for you to enjoy.

WiFi is available throughout the house and grounds. Sit with your lap top by the pool and email photos of you in paradise to your friends.

A large screen TV with DVD player is located upstairs in the 5th bedroom/media room. This is a great place for the kids to relax with a movie after a day of fun in the sun, while the adults are having cocktails on the patio before dinner and waiting for one of those spectacular Costa Rican sunsets to end a perfect day. Another TV and DVD/CD player are in the Great Room right off the pool. Outside speakers are on the patio to play your favorite tunes. Bring your Ipod and connect to the system. You will have your favorite tunes while enjoying dancing on the patio or sitting and enjoying our spectacular Costa Rican sunsets.

Janet and Tomas are your caretakers. They are here to pamper you. They provide daily maid service and services Monday through Saturday. They are becoming famous for their cooking skills. Make this truly a vacation. For a small additional fee they will help you relax while you are served drinks of your choice and a suburb meal. You provide the food and beverages and they will take over to prepare, serve and clean up. Tomas is a bartender extraordinaire. Food shopping is made simple by ordering before you arrive from the Surfside market. Upon request we will send an order form to you and your home will be stocked with all your favorites, food and beverags, when you arrive.

A secure and private lock down room is provided for your valuables. A monitored security system is in place with 24 hour coverage.

The Villa has been designed to comfortably accommodate large groups or small intimate parties. The 5 bedrooms each have king size beds with pillow top mattresses. Two of the master bedrooms are directly off the ocean and pool. Two of the bedrooms have mini-kitchens and a private garden patio. They also have couch pull down beds for extra sleeping. The pull down beds can accommodate one adult or two small children.

The fifth bedroom/media room is upstairs. It is a very large room and can accommodate the entire group for DVD movies or extra sleeping as it has two pull down couch beds plus the king size bed. The loft has two couch pull down beds.

Playa Potrero is a very interesting bay. The Flamingo Marina is located at the south end of the bay. Sunset cruises, world class fishing and many activities await you. You have a perfect view of the boats coming and going from the Villa. The water out front is gentle and inviting. The perfect swimming/kayaking bay, gentle waves without any threatening riptides or undertow.

This is due to an offshore rim of a sunken volcanic crater which encompasses the large bay. You have a view of the Catalina Islands that are part of the crater and offer some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the region.

Three beachfront restaurants and two markets are within walking distance. Flamingo and Brasallito are minutes away by car. They offer shopping, banking, fine resturants and many activities. Tamarindo and Playa Grande are 30 minutes from the Villa by car. Playa Grande is one of the few nesting beaches of the huge Leatherback Turtle.

Lovely place for large group of friends or family

  • 5 out of 5
If you are looking for a place for a large group that wants a peaceful beach away from it all, and enjoys cooking their own food this is your gig.

That said, and as much as our entire group loves to cook, I'd highly recommend having Tomas and Janet prepare a few meals for you because everything they prepared was OUTSTANDING. Beyond outstanding actually ... and this is a group of foodies. The shrimp, the fish, the beans and rice, the guacamole, and the first night - a typico Costa Rican meal. Unbelievable!

Tomas also makes incredible pina coladas, which we usually started on around 10:00am since the sun was up by 5.

You might also want to start out your trip with a massage from Janet - we set up the upstairs bedroom which is nice and dark and cool. I waited until just before we left and wished I had set up time with her the day after our arrival. Such a nice way to unwind.

Enjoy the peace and quiet - check out fishing and/or excursions from Flamingo Beach - drive to Rincon de la Vieja for a nature hike, and take a swim beneath the waterfall - have breakfast or after cocktails at Bahia Del Sol Beachfront Hotel (a lovely resort just a short walk up the beach).

You'll leave relaxed and ready to face the "real world" again - or, you may decide to move to Costa Rica!

Words Cannot Describe Paradise!

  • 5 out of 5
Joan,
We had an AMAZING time at your house! We did do a number of things
but were also able to squeeze in a lot of nothing time!! Your house
was perfect for that!
>
Our wake ups were generally around 5:45 am at which point we'd all sit
out on the back patio with our coffee enjoying the beautiful, clear
view. Janet and Tomas would bring in our breakfast around 8:00. They
were absolutely amazing! Despite the language barrier with Janet, we
were able to communicate and joke with her. Tomas is just a doll and a phenomenal cook!!
>
We had scheduled Scuba dives at the Flamingo Resort where 2 of the 3
boys were able to successfully complete their Padi certification.
Dervin coordinated all the transportation for us. He was also enormously helpful.
He coordinated our ziplining, our trip to Tamarindo to surf, had jet
skis delivered right to your beach. He was terrific!
>
We so enjoyed walking the beach to visit the local crocodiles
(YIKES!). We had a visit on your patio from some local escapees from
a nearby farm (yes, cows at 3 am eating your bushes are enough to
scare anyone!). We also saw a monkey family on one of our daily walks to Super Wendy!!
>
Janet gave us some Mangoes from the tree in front which we promptly
turned into virgin (and NON-Virgin) afternoon smoothies to watch the
gorgeous sunset. Which was followed by a delicious dinner prepared by
Tomas. The table was the perfect size for our family of 8, where we
sat for over an hour every night talking, eating and playing games.
We enjoyed the space to be together and sometimes enjoyed the space to
be apart, with kids upstairs, some outside, a parent sleeping on a chair...
>
We cannot say enough about Janet and Tomas. You have really found
some gems in them!! They care for your house as if it's their own, and
cared for us as if we were their friends, which for a short time we were!
>
It was one of the best vacations we've had! Thank you for sharing your beautiful house and country with us. Our only regret is that we
didn't know until after we had visited Tamarindo that your son has a restaurant there.
We would have loved to visit him!!
>
We know understand the real meaning of Pura Vida!! Many thanks again!

WONDERFUL vacation - absolute perfection

  • 5 out of 5
I am the third of my family to visit Joan's beautiful house and it was the perfect vacation for us. We had a wonderful time visiting the beautiful country of Costa Rica and its friendly people. We had almost every meal cooked by Tomas and Janet and it was superb. Janet did the most amazing pedicure ever, we highly recommend. The house was perfect for three couples that were away from our children for the first time. It was a great blend of relaxation and fun. Joan was beyond helpful and excellent to work with, the house was very clean, updated and accommodating. Tomas and Janet were the best but above all Dervin and his group provided us with wonderful transportation and services - he cannot be beat. We would come here again and again - we felt like we had a small sliver of paradise for one week - a week that went by far too fast.

Fantastic beach front location

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week at the Villa Corazon del Mar. It was everything that is promised here and more. The house itself is perfect for a large group (there were 12 of us) and amply supplied for cooking as much as we wanted. The location is ideal - just steps from the Pacific (although the sand was SO hot!) Tomas and Janet were so amenable and kind - they couldn't have been nicer. Dervin arranged for all of our activities and always had a driver available for us. The beach and water were beautiful, the weather was perfect and our memories are full of wonderful times with family. As I look out on our snowy 16 degree day it's hard to believe that last week at this time we were struggling to keep enough sun screen on everyone. I want to go back! Thanks Joan for allowing us to spend a week at your beautiful home. Pura Vida

Long Awaited Family Reunion!!

  • 5 out of 5
Words cannot express how greatful I am l to Joan and this amazing piece of heaven. We started planning our visit 7 years ago after my younger brother gave one of his kidneys to save our fathers life. As they were being wheeled away we asked where they wanted to go after their recovery and they said marlin fishing in Costa Rica. This is how it all began....it took some time but after 3 more grandboys, 2 deployments, a retirement and just life happening we finally made it and what a blessing it was!! The house was perfect and so spacious I loved going to sleep and waking to the crashing waves. When we weren't kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, sailing on the Manta Ray, zip lining, beach combing, and playing in the ocean we were all enjoying the beautiful infinity pool. I don't think the pool was ever empty! Except when we were sleeping. :-). As other reviews have stated Dervin and his crew are exceptional. The most accommodating, flexible, available and affordable service I've ever experienced. We wanted to take Gravin home with us. He is such nice, humble and sincere person. He has the right attitude and demeanor for his job. He became apart of our family. Also, Ana, Dervin's beautiful bride was so sweet, kind and very helpful we really enjoyed her. They made our trip unforgettable. The guys fished early in the week and had mahi mahi to eat on all week. We had Tomas cook for us twice and it was amazing, the spread he does is not only delicious but beautifully presented. He and Janet are so wonderful they are the perfect addition to the house. Janet gave me a deep tissue massage the first day there and it relaxed me for the rest of the week. She is gifted. I highly recommend this beautiful villa and all it's amenities. Thank you Joan for waiting for us we will never forget our wonderful adventure! All the laughter, love and priceless memories we will forever cherish!! As the beautiful people of Costa Rica say Pura Vida!!!
PS we loved Playa Conchal and found the sands, shells, snorkeling and the handmade souvenirs incredible! We also loved Harry and his crew at The Shack. The restaurants on the beach close to the house are also yummy!

EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this GORGEOUS home for 3 nights/4 days, and what a pleasure it was! We had 12 of us in the house, and there was plenty of room to spare! The view from anywhere on the property is stunning, and with the pool and kayaks and beach, there is no need to even leave the property! So much to do just right out the back door! There is a well stocked convenience store just a few blocks away and a fresh fruit stand not much farther than that, and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking, if you are so inclined. We did not use the services of the caretakers, but I understand they will come in and cook for you for a reasonable price, if you are interested. They were very helpful caretakers, supplying us with salt and sugar when we were missing those items for our own cooking needs.

I can't say enough good things about our experience there. The owner, Joan, is a delight to work with, as well, and they all bend over backwards to make your experience a positive one. And the pictures don't do the place justice, it is even prettier in person. The sunsets were spectacular, right out your back yard! The beach is fairly private, there was not a lot of traffic on it, and if you want a more popular, white sand beach, Playa Conchal is just about a 15 minute drive down the road. We went there one morning, and that was a fun experience, as well.

I definitely would recommend this property. You won't be sorry!
