Bernard L. Jennings purchased this villa in 2013
We just simply love the country and this location. The property is modern, has very nice amenities and decorations. Each bedroom has a private bathroom and shower. The villa comfortably accommodates six adults.
This location offers both seclusion at home and the nearby activities on Ocotal Beach, Coco Beach and the Town Center.
Everything was just as advertised. No surprises. Nice, safe environment. We couldn't have asked for more.
My family had a great time staying in this house. As a family of 6, it is sometimes hard to find a place that is large enough for my entire family when travelling and this place was perfect. The three bedrooms were just right and the kitchen and dining area provided the needed items for those times when we didn't feel like eating out. The property also included access to three pools. With the ocean so close we didn't really need to use the pools, but the kids did enjoy playing games in them when we came back to the house. Bernard, the owner of the property, was a great help and quickly responded in any questions that I had.
We really enjoyed the beach that was just a short walk from the properly. It was nice sized beach that was reasonably calm and easy to swim in. There are also some rocky places that are good for snorkeling. The water was a little murky, but we were able to see a lot of interesting fish.
There are not a lot of dining choices within walking distance of the property, but there are lot of places in the nearby town of Playas Del Coco. I would suggest trying some of the local soda's in the town for some truly authentic Costa Rican food, but if you are interested in more American style cuisine there are a number of those choices available.
The location and property suited our family perfectly and I think would be a great place for other families or groups looking for a memorable vacation.
This property is close walking distance to the beautiful beach, a good restaurant called Father Roosters, and interesting snorkel views. The condo is clean, well organized, and efficient. I highly recommend this place to those wishing to 'get away from it all' in a pretty tropical environment that is even a bit removed from the local town, Playa del Coco. The interesting howler monkeys, 2 hour adventuresome horseback riding, and successful fishing trips were some of our favorite activities while making this nice place our home. The Serenity Cafe on the condo property provides excellent breakfast and lunch food in a friendly and healthy way. Wonderful Vacation spot!
We went to Costa Rica with our three children and my mother for our annual vacation. We have stayed in many VRBO properties in the past. This property was clearly the cleanest and most well put together of any we have stayed in. It is located just a perfect distance from the beach and very safe and secure in a gated community. The neighbors were very nice and helpful. The pool was very clean. We would highly recommend this property to anyone. It helped make our vacation fantastic!
Pool, beach, piscina, playa.... rinse and repeat, it was a very relaxing vacation. The owner was great and went as far as to check in during our vacation just to make sure everything was okay.
There is a reason that Bernard's place (as of June 2016) has 5 stars, 26 out of 26 reviews.
Bernard's communication and assistance is impeccable and the condo is perfect.
When we arrived in CR, Bernard had helped us arrange for a car (from Payless) who picked us up at the airport and took very good care of us. We followed the driving instructions and easily found the condo at Vista Ocotal.
It is a short but interesting drive to Coco Beach (less than 10 minutes), very comfortable walking distance to Father Roosters.
The food and service were great at Father Roosters, and there are several trustworthy excursion vendors right in front of the beachfront restaurant. We enjoyed fishing one morning. the price was very reasonable and the boat and equipment were in very good shape.
June is the beginning of the slowdown period for this region, and we had the pool to ourselves. The pool is clean, refreshingly cool, and a very comfortable place to catch morning rays (as well as a little late night dip!)
We enjoyed watching butterflies, lizards, and listening to Howler Monkeys while sipping our coffee on the upstairs balcony, while our friends enjoyed their mornings down stairs. This allowed for both couples to have "our own space" when desired.
The bathrooms are nice and the showers are huge. We did use the washer and dryer before we left, which is nice not to have to go home and do laundry.
Upon Bernard's recommendation, we visited Diamante Adventure Park...(a MUST do). We had fun on the zip lines (one is nearly a mile long and you ride that one Superman style!) and we tried paddle boards, and even toured the botanical garden. Our guide explained a lot of the indigenous plant life and ended up being very interesting.
We also drove to Tabacon Springs. The highway that gets you to Canas (about 1 1/2 hours) is very nice and modern. The rest of the 3.5 hour drive is on very winding roads, but a beautiful drive. We didn't want to drive there and back in one day, so we checked in the Gingerbread House (a MUST MUST do...!!!)for one night...
It is a boutique bed and breakfast and the rooms are all different and all very cool! The food is out of this world good, and the trip made for an extremely fun couple days.
We travel a lot. We have rented condos and also "all inclusive resorts" all over. But our time in Costa Rica, our time in Bernard's condo, it's location and appointments, the pool made this vacation one of our favorites!
Father Rooster's restaurant is on the beach a short walk from the villa. Absolutely beautiful sunsets.
