EcoVida Casa Famosa with Private Pool and Tower! Walk to the Beach! Casa Famosa is a beautifully decorated home with a private pool, huge outdoor terrace, backyard full of tropical plants and tons of extras. It gets its name from appearing on an episode of House Hunters International when this home became “famous” and one of the top rental homes in our area. This 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home is perfect for couples or a family and is still one of the most popular rental homes in Costa del Sol. This home can sleep up to 8 people with 2 king size beds, 2 single beds and a pull-out sofa. Throughout the home you will find stunning photographs of Costa Rica taken by a local photographer. • A/C in every room • Private pool with solar pump, outdoor shower and lounge chairs • Large outdoor ter...EcoVida Casa Famosa with Private Pool and Tower!

The gated community of Costa del Sol has 24 hr security, 2 large community pools, tennis court, rancho and BBQ area. The community has paved streets and extensive public gardens that are meticulously maintained by the community gardeners. We are in the perfect position to offer a truly memorable vacation experience. A short walk down the street will get you to our beach, with miles of sand to explore. A 30 minute drive gets you to Jaco, one of Costa Rica's most popular tourist destinations full of activities, nightlife and restaurants. In the local area we have amazing restaurants in the communities surrounding us, such as Esterillos Oeste, a quaint surfer town -- or even the restaurants on our beach of Playa Bejuco. Our new Town Center which is just a few minutes down the road at the entrance to Playa Bejuco offers various restaurants, a supermarket, gym, day spa and various other new businesses coming all the time. Another 30 minutes the other direction on the highway gets you to Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park, one of the most impressive nature lover's paradise in Costa Rica. It’s a wonderful place to do a day trip, but you will find our accommodation much more tranquil than staying by the busy park. In either direction, you will find hidden gems of Tico living and things to see and do! Stay a month and you still will not run out of things to do within a 30 minute drive! Relax at our beach and you will forget about everything but the sound of the ocean and wildlife around us. At EcoVida we pride ourselves on making you as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Curl up with a great book while lounging by the private pool or hammock, let the kids run around the backyard or head out to the beach to work on your tan or try some surfing lessons! There are a ton of activities and sights to see in our area. We can assist you in finding the best of the best when it comes to car rentals, tours and activities! No matter what brings you here, you are guaranteed to enjoy your time and whatever your desire, our location is perfect. When choosing your vacation destination, why pick a home, apartment or cabina with an absentee manager or owner when you can pick one that is only a few minutes walk away to assist you with anything you might need during your vacation? Our property, where we host our cabina guests, is just across the street from Costa del Sol. Look for “Big Blue”, our recycled shipping container building facing the street. We can offer full concierge service by planning your transportation, rental cars, tours, activities, in-home massages, cleaning services, surf board rentals, etc., as well as provide restaurant suggestions & reservations. We also offer boogie board rentals as well as other products & services in our office (by appointment or email) exclusively for EcoVida guests. Pick an EcoVida property and allow our team to make every aspect of your visit as relaxing and easy as possible. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: * Remember that we only include electricity up to $20/day, so please conserve to help not only our environment but the cost of electricity for those in Costa Rica that survive on very little. Used responsibly it is almost impossible to exceed this limit. *Deposit: $500 for less than 2 weeks. $1000 deposit for 2 weeks or more. *Cleaning: The home will be cleaned before and after your stay. If you would like additional cleaning during your stay it is an additional fee. *Max Occupancy: This base price is for 6 people but Casa Famosa can sleep up to 8 people (adults and children). Please inquire about the possibility of additional guests or day guests which are charged at $20/day/person. More

About the neighbourhood
We are in the perfect position to offer a truly memorable vacation experience. World class blue flag beach, town center with supermarket, day spa, restaurants and close enough to tons of attractions, yet rural enough to find pure tranquility.
Getting around
We recommend a rental car and can help you with that if you like, but local buses are also abundant and close by.
