“Relaxing, private, lots of outdoor living space”
Reviewed 31 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

My wife and I just returned after spending 10 wonderful days at Villa Las Olas. Lillian, the property manager met us to ensure we were settled in and followed up every few days to see if there were any issues or questions. The recent addition and reno of the master bedroom and bath was well done and enjoyed. Given the expanse of the outdoor living space and kitchen area we really were only inside to sleep. The kitchen was well equipped including a blender which was well used making drinks using the local fresh fruit. A nice touch was that the owners had put together a binder with information on the property and the area to answer many standard questions. Lots of good restaurants within a 10 minute walk as well as groceries. We plan to return in Jan 2019

“Very comfortable simple home in a great location.”
Reviewed 30 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Our family of four stayed at the house for one week in March. The two bedrooms have air conditioning units and ceiling fans. Playa Potrero is very well situation for day trips. It is best to have a rental car. There are many simple but fun and good restaurants nearby along with small grocery stores. The small pool was wonderfully refreshing at the end of a day spent exploring the many beautiful beaches around. It was also great to have the outside kitchen and eating area, and the only distractions from relaxing and reading with our morning coffee sitting by the pool were the distant calls from howling monkeys and the diverse array of colorful birds visiting the surrounding fruit trees. Pura vida!
Highly recommended. We would go back any day.

“Amazing property and location in Guanacaste”

Stayed for a week at the Oceanside Villa in July with my wife and two kids. We absolutely loved the property and location. The Villa was very clean and had all of the required amenities. The private pool and outdoor kitchen and dining area made it extra special. We prepared and ate all of our meals outside. The property is a short walk to Potrero Beach and local grocery stores and an easy drive to numerous beaches in the area, including the popular Playa Tamarindo. We are extremely pleased with our stay at Oceanside Villa and we hope to have an opportunity to come back here some time soon.

“HAD A WONDERFUL STAY”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

From the moment we arrived in Liberia we knew we were in for a great time. Upon seeing our accommodations we expected to have a spectacular vacation. The pool looked so inviting and to see the outdoor kitchen the expectations were on the rise. The villa was wonderful and enjoyed many of our cooked meals in the outdoor dining area. Enjoyed fresh lemonade, the star fruit was delicious and the guava was superb. Lillian our host was very helpful and gave us a grand tour of the area. This was not our first trip to Potrero and definitly not our last as my wife and I are looking for that special place in Costa Rica.

“Loved this place and will be back! Don't listen to the 1 negative guy!”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We (my wife and 2 young daughters) just returned from CR (our 3rd family visit and my 4th) and we couldn't have been happier with our stay at Oceanside Villa! We look forward to our next stay here. I've stayed at a few very nice places in CR, but never once have I loved a stay so much I wanted to stay in the exact same place a 2nd time.

First off I have to address the 1 negative review for this property as I really don't understand most of it. If the guy wanted The Four Seasons he should have gone there (and would have paid a lot more!) While its true this is not "Oceanside", and its also true that with a rental car and 2 young children (ages 8 and 9) we didn't walk to anything nearby, the ocean, grocery stores and several places to eat were VERY close by.

We stayed for 7 days and saw no trace of any "sinister gardeners" and only saw the pool guy for all of 10 minutes once during our stay.

The size of the place and décor are pretty darn well described and pictured, and VERY comfortably slept my family of 4. We spent most of our time outside though as between the outdoor kitchen, dining table, 2 couches and lovely pool, there wasn't a huge need to hang out inside except to brew coffee in the mornings and sleep at night.

Lilian the property manager was very friendly and easy to deal with. We only had 1 minor issue with one of the AC units and she had a repair person out first thing the next morning (I made the request late in the day) and it was fixed inside of 30 minutes.

In the outside area, almost as large as the indoor living area, you are surrounded by coconut, papaya, starfruit and lime trees and lots of exotic (to us) birds and some lizards. True like MANY roads in small towns in Costa Rica, the road is not paved, but we were not "surrounded by a dust cloud" at any point (the road was very rarely driven on by anyone) and as far as light after dark goes, the place is well lit and they provide flashlights too.

As far as blankets go, there were plenty of extras in the closet and I feel quite sure had we needed or wanted more that Lilian would have brought us some inside of 10 minutes (she's about 3 blocks away).

As far as privacy goes, you have the pool all to yourself as Casa Mango and Casa Limon (the 2 duplex-style apartments also on the property) aren't allowed access. True your house is next door (about 20' away), but we heard no noise and only ever saw the occupants once and never heard anything from the other surrounding neighbors (unless you count lizards). We had total privacy.

OK, so I will present a few slight negatives as almost any place you rent will have some and I do want to be thorough, but I want to reiterate they would in no way cause me to not stay here again:

1. Roaches in the bathroom (they obviously expect it as there is bug spray under the sink). I sprayed the bugs on day 1 and never saw any more

2. The only AC units are in the bedroom (2) so the living room was always a tad warmer than I would ideally want. There are, however, a total of 6 ceiling fans and the bedrooms go so cold we would typically turn them off at night.

3. The property has a washing machine, but if you're coming from the states, this is kind of a manual unit that requires manually filling and draining and wringing out before line drying. I kind of got into the "zen" of it, but it was a tad more time consuming.

One thing I really appreciated, compared to other places I've rented that had kitchens was the fact that a lot of the basic kitchen staples (spices, oils, vinegars, coffee filter, etc) are all stocked, so it was nice to not have to buy all that, especially since we wouldn't have used even half of it.

Overall we LOVED this place! It gave us a sense of what it might be like to live there and gave us an authentic taste of this amazing country. We also loved the town of Portrero and found it to be a great jumping off point to lots of other great destinations not too far away and was within an hour's drive of the Liberia airport. If you want to relax in a tropical paradise and just enjoy yourself and your family or friends and don't want something fussy like a resort, this place is PERFECT for up to 4 folks.
