About Diane MacCormac
My home is in BRitish Columbia. I have three adult sons and 7 grand children. I am a retired Social Worker. I have been coming to Costa Rica since 1990. I fell in love with CR the first time we came and bought my villa on the spur of the moment. I have been blessed to be able to come to this beautiful country many many times.
Diane MacCormac purchased this Villa in 1990
Why Diane MacCormac chose Papagayo
Costa Rica is a hot country but the Northwest area is a much drier heat so not as humid. Plus along the ocean there always seems to be a breeze which makes it much more comfortable. Why go anywhere else when you found Paradise.
What makes this Villa unique
My property is located in a Resort, which is in a gated community. This provides a great deal of security along with the benefits of having access to the resort amenities.

Wonderful stay with the family
We spent a week in villa 38 and loved it! Lovely place, great facilities, accessible. Recommend for a family (we are 4, could also be great for a couple more kids).
Great stay in a lovely location
We really enjoyed our stay here, especially in the morning when we sat out on the balcony watching and listening to the birds. What a beautiful way to start the day! And the villa has everything you need and want. The grocery store is very close by. It was the perfect place for our stay.
Thank you Laura, early morning in the hammock, with a nice cup of coffee, is my favourite time of the day.
Clean, great location, awesome communication, beautiful view!
Perfect stay for our family of 4. Diane and her property manager were easy to get in touch and the villa was well equipped for a relaxing stay. We hope to return!
very comfortable villa with great views
Wonderful experience at Diane’s Villa. She made sure everything was clean and the villa was stocked with nice pool towels and bath towels. Plenty of toilet paper, soap etc. Air Conditioning was great in every room. Nice hammock and plunge pool to relax in. Grounds were very clean, looking little loved the pool bar and trolley to the beach.
Thank you Jeannine for lovely review. It is important to me that that the villa is clean and well stocked, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I look forward to hosting you again in the future. Warm Regarás, Diane
We loved our stay here. The place is beautiful. Our kids really enjoyed the lap pool. The beach is a short walk and amazing. We walked to the super market a few times it's about 10 minutes. Fantastic place thank you!
Beautiful villa-as described!
Our family of 5 adults spent 3 days at the villa, at the end of our trip to Costa Rica. Diane's unit is as described. Spacious, clean and tidy, with everything a family needs to be comfortable. All basic supplies are there for cooking, and Diane's info package which was mailed out in advance provided some great restaurant ideas. We cooked breakfast and dinner in the condo, and dined on the beach in Playa Hermosa, as it is a short walk from the villa. We were happy to have the plunge pool to cool off in at the end of our busy days of touring, as it was quite warm. We took advantage of the music collection in the unit, as well as ready many of the books. A couple of things slightly took away from our enjoyment: the music from the hotel's pool bar is quite loud, and goes well into the evening and can be heard very clearly at the villa. Secondly, these units are very close together and although there is plenty of foliage to block your view of the neighbors, two of our 3 nights, the one neighbor was outside and the loud voices and music forced us inside. Certainly not the fault of the owner, and we were glad we chose this unit.
