Stay in a cozy 1 BR or 2 BR, upscale Costa Rican-style bungalows with a pristine pool at your doorstep. Look out over the trees to the Pacific ocean from your private balcony and listen to the birds and howler monkeys that call the gardens of Casa Tranquila home.
“We stayed at José’s place for a week. He truly has set up a great place to unwind. The cottage was cute and had everything that we needed. His property is beautiful. His plants and trees and pool make for a very relaxing atmosphere. He is very knowledgeable about Costa Rica and obviously cares very deeply for his country. It was great fun to talk with him. José and his family made us feel very welcome offering suggestions on local things to do. When it was time for us to leave he set up a taxi for us. We didn’t have a car but didn’t mind walking. There is a hill involved but it wasn’t a big deal. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend Jose’s place to others.”

“SPECTACULAR!!! Alvaro's place is amazing!!! This villa is part of many private, personally owned villas, and an all inclusive resort (VillasSols). The villa included daily house keeping service, with fresh towels, clean sheets every second or third day, daily restock of shampoo, conditioner, soap, and body lotion. It is a very spacious villa with two full size bathrooms. Efficient WIFI connections, cable TV (mainly Spanish), dishwasher, BBQ, fantastic fridge with ice cube and filtered water dispenser. The outside deck has a mesmerizing view of the Pacific Ocean and a PRIVATE swimming pool!!! The sunsets were breathtaking!!! You can either walk the 2km to the beach or take a shuttle that runs every 10 minutes. The beach has lounging chairs for guests. The sand is dark (volcanic) and spans for about 3 kms. The water is clear, we swam everyday all day. There are great restaurants right on the beach. We ate many meals in and shopped in Playa Coco (taxi one way cost $15 US). You can also shop in Playa Hermosa, although the stores were smaller with fewer selection. The prices were reasonable. If you want a relaxing (does not include tennis courts and gym), quiet holiday with spectacular sunsets and beautiful beaches, look no further than Alvaro's villa. He's an excellent host who answered our many questions quickly and efficiently. We highly recommend this location!!!”

“... Thank you for the opportunity to spend a few days in this great house in the pandemic. We had a great time and I (I am a civil engineer) could identify with the house mega. The modern style of the house with its niches and corners provides many opportunities for relaxation in the middle of nature. Every day the monkeys climbed past the open kitchen in direct view. Can only be recommended ...”
