Very clean and exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for a week with my husband and two kids. Clean and exactly what's shown on the picturs. The owner was quick to answer any questions prior to our arrival and during our stay. Ocotal beach is a short 3-minute walk from the villa. My only recommendation would be to bring with you an outdoor blanket as there are no chairs or sunbeds on the beach. Would definately recommend this property if you're planning to stay next to Ocotal beach.

Ideal location for three adult couples!

  • 5 of 5

We were three couples staying at Bernard's home. It is often difficult to find a listing that is 3 bedrooms without one being setup with twin beds or bunks--usually you have to find a larger home. This was ideal for our group of six. The house was clean and well-supplied with the basics (e.g., toilet paper and hand soap) when we arrived. Bernard was quick to respond to all questions and shared all the information necessary to make our stay enjoyable.

The property staff (gardeners, security, pool, etc.) were all friendly, non-invasive, and good for a tip or two on local sites to see.

Location, location, location: Vista Ocotal is an easy 35-45 minutes from Liberia airport, a quick walk to the beach, a pool right onsite and an easy 10-minute drive back into town. If you love to explore by car, just be aware that your Google GPS maps are not always accurate in Costa Rica. We know this and are always prepared with a printed local map, but found this area to be a little more challenging than others. GPS had a hard time with routes to Portrero/Brasilito/Conchal, Rincon de la Vieja, and the newer overpass for International Route 1 in Liberia. We also did a full day tour of Nicaragua through ShamanTours, it was an amazing experience (Granada, boating on Lake Nicaragua, Masaya Volcano, Masaya market and amazing food), but a border crossing I would not want to do without the experience of a guide!

Owner's Response: I sincerely apologize for the water pressure problem with the first floor shower. Had I been informed of this upon your arrival, corrective action would have been taken immediately. I appreciate your business. Bernard

A Great House in a Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

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.
