“Quiet and relaxing”

We started everyday with a five minute walk to the beautiful, quiet, family orientated Ocotal beach. Most mornings there would only be two or three other couples there. Our afternoons were spent mostly by the refreshing pool. Calen (pronounced K-leen) was always there to make sure you have a great stay. We never rented a car so it was a $6 for a ten minute cab ride to Coco beach,( unless Calen gives you a ride), for groceries, souvenirs, bank or a bar type atmosphere. The rooms vary in size but are clean, airconditioned with basic kitchen supplies. If you want a relaxing, quiet stay with a great beach for a very reasonable rate, this is your place. We will be going back.

“Outstanding!!!”

We booked a rental property for a second trip to CR as we wanted the 'local experience'. This property is the perfect balance of tropical serenity and easy 5 minute cab access to party life. Our one bedroom apartment was reasonably priced, clean, nicely decorated, had internet access, A/C, easy pool access and a stunning view. Within a 10 minute walk there was access to restaurants, the beach and nature including various birds, howler monkeys and magnificent flowers. We have travelled to many places outside the resort experience and we must commend our host, Calin on being the most attentive, thoughtful, personable and accommodating host we have ever had. From helping us out with ideas for unique sight seeing adventures, transportation and creating a home away from home feeling we attribute much of the 'magic' we experienced on our trip to the time we spent with him. Forget the resorts, buy your own food and booze (like you do at home anyway) and experience the beauty of this small Costa Rican gated community. We are already trying to talk our friends into renting the whole upper floor and the villa with us for next year. Thumbs up for the location, property, accommodations and the host...many thanks for everything Calin and Silvia!!!

We (all 12 family members) had a wonderful time in Costa Rica and at the Villa.. Everyone had their own room and only 2 had to share a bath. Calin was very accommodating and helpful. We were only a 5 minute walk to the beach and a lovely restaurant. We did rent a van, however, to get into town to the supermarkets and other restaurants.
I would recommend a day trip to Nicaragua. It is definitely something to experience.
The only thing we had a problem with was the mosquitoes. You need to bring sprays.
