The Resort is strategically located only 30 minutes away from the Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR) in Liberia where there are many direct flights from several major cities in the US, Europe, Canada and South America, as well as domestic flights to/from San José. This condo is a great base point to explore the beautiful province of Guanacaste and serves as a great place to spend your last night before flying back home, a perfect romantic and private retreat for couples or as an ideal kid friendly place to enjoy a family vacation. The condo features three bedrooms each with a double bed, two full bathrooms, a full sized kitchen with an island and granite counter tops, living room, large terrace, private plunge pool, sunning deck, and offers a breathtaking ocean view.

There is a nearby convenience store in Playa Hermosa called "Luperon" and a large premium grocery store in Playas del Coco (15 min drive) called "Automercado" with fresh produce and high quality products as well as a small strip of banks, restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, retail shops. This area features plenty of attractions for visitors such as the Diamante Eco-Adventure Park in Playa Matapalo, fishing tours, surfing at Witch's Rock and Ollie's Point (accessible by boat only), diving, and you can explore Rincon de la Vieja National Park (90 min drive) and the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve (2 hour drive).

The reviews speak for themselves! :-)

What guests are saying:

“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!!!”

“If you are looking at the Lighthouse Ocotal, stop your search! It is amazing beyond words! We stayed here for 14 days with 11 people ages 14-61. The house is perched at the top of a hill overlooking the ocean from the backyard space and infinity pool! It is incredible. Max & Julia are equally fantastic catering to everything we needed. Cleaning was included to make our stay relaxing and filled with fun. Max and I communicated through email and he arranged the chef to come in about 8 times for various meals which was a treat and an excellent meal whether it was breakfast or dinner with tons of delicious food. Max also coordinated day trips, transportation and massages for our group. This house is close to the beach 10 min walk which has a cool little beach bar called Father Rooster. You are a 7-10 min drive to Town. We were especially surprised to find amazing local restaurants. Our favourites were: Coconutz - excellent casual food and local brewery The Lookout- a must try amazing seafood spot. Che Sirloin- a delicious steak place Zarpe- if you love a great cocktail -GO La dolce vita - superb Italian Guayoyo coffee shop- delicious coffee and pastries Renting a car is costly - there is a tax you have to pay. It’s tough not to have a car as there are so many things to see like waterfalls zipline eco parks so please budget for this its about another 600-800$ We took a private boat tour Sea Bird Sailing which Max set up- was so amazing and fun! After the trip we got dinner at Bambu- amazing pizzas We travel all over the world and stay in Airbnbs everywhere but this was by far the best experience!!! We would give Max and Julia 12 stars out of 10! We will be back!!!!”

My place is a loft close to the airport, the city center, beaches, restaurants, and souvenir shops. You also can experience the local culture, scuba diving, fishing, and nightlife. You’ll love my place because of the coziness, the price, the location, and the kitchen. My loft is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

What guests are saying:

“You can expect great communication, and a nice place to stay! After a long flight to Costa Rica we just wanted to get to the place and crash, but after we saw the pool, we set our things down took a dip and hung out. The place is very cozy and everything we expected it to be. Would definitely be back!”
