Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Tucked away in a very beautiful setting amongst the toucans, blue morpho butterflies, soaring trees and Verde green everywhere you will find quaint and impeccably clean villa. We immediately felt at home not only because of the comfortable setting, but equally because of our very gracious host, Frank and Tammy . The entire property is spotless Frank and Tammy will ensure that you are well taken care of from start to finish.
Only a short drive to the beaches and restaurants, we found this a wonderful place to stay as it offered comfortable accommodation in a serene and tranquil setting just minutes from the beaches and other activities. We will most certainly be back.

Management response:

It was truly a pleasure hosting you and your family, we are all enriched by having met each other and we both wish you and your family a welcome return. Perfect Tropical Escape

How to get there
Airport: Juan Santamaria Intl Airport : 96.0 km
We are only 1 hour and thirty five minutes from the Juan Santamaria International Airport following the Carrettera Pacífica Fernández Oreamuno/Costanera Sur/Route 34 and the Autopista José María Castro Madrizon on the Costanera Sur Autopista (Route 34) The drive is scenic and the roads are all well maintained (paved). There are a few toll booths which speed you through the scenic drive with each toll costing about $1 US each. Have local currency available since the exchange rate for the tolls will favor the local currency (Colones).
You may contact us for the specific driving directions which we provided with your booking reservation.
