  • It was just right for us! Nice, clean, and right off the beach. Sleeping to the gentle surf sound was lovely. Going out on the kayaks was a great bonus. Ken and his brother Garry (who lives next door with a pool!) were very welcoming. The house had everything we needed and it was the perfect place to relax and warm up after a week working in an orphanage up in the cold highlands. Thanks so much!!!

  • Very private place. Great beech for walking. Lots of birds. You really should have a car staying here or take advantage of Ken's offer to escort you around.
    Unfortunately we couldn't use the pool or the kayaks as they were not available for us during our stay.

    Response from Ken & Marlen:

    Hi Joanne & Rick,

    Sorry about the communication gap... Kayaks are ALWAYS AVAILABLE for every group (email hidden). notice so we can get them ready and make sure your schedule does not conflict with the other incoming groups who also share them... No Exceptions..!
    Apparently we we're were unaware that you wanted to take them out..?

    The pool on the other hand... is always dependent upon the other incoming groups as stated in my Description Box... Please check with us to see if the pool is available...?
    We do apologize for the Communication Gap..!
    We would be glad to give you... TWO FREE NIGHTS @ THE VILLA FOR FREE..! for the inconvenience.. just call anytime and make your arraignments...!
    Thank you again for staying at our Private Beach Front Villa...

  • Ken and Marlen's Private beach front villa met all our expectations and more! The villa was clean and very well supplied with necessary items (like towels and kitchen equipment). We were able to take the kayaks out one morning and it was really spectacular. The beach has a lot to offer with the restaurant/bar in walking distance and a beautiful cove to also explore. Its also close by to Jaco and Manuel Antonio - which make great day trips. We also ended up getting a flat tire on the car we had rented and Ken's brother who lives next door was a life safer and helped us out. All in all, the beach front villa is a spot I would recommend to anyone visiting Costa Rica - especially if you want to spend time away from the crowds, just relaxing at the beach.

  • My friend and I spent five days at the "Villa" and we had the most marvelous time there. The photos are exactly what it is, so our expectations were right on. Starting from when Ken picked us up at the airport in San Jose (that is a great deal!) until we left we enjoyed being so close to the beach and waking each morning to the sounds of birds and ocean waves. We also borrowed the kayak one day and enjoyed a sunny paddle to a white sand beach. There's lots of beach for walking. The Villa has everything we needed. It's a no-frills place, but is well-appointed. Ken provided us with drinking water and a local phone which was a big help. We would go there again for a relaxing vacation in a quite, beautiful area, and highly recommend it.

  • My husband and I found this to be a little piece of heaven. The beach is literally steps from your front door. Listening to the surf at night was so relaxing. It's a laid back place to stay yet close enough to Jaco (15 minute drive) so you can have a wonderful dinner out.

    December 2013
  • This was a great stop on our Costa Rican Trip. Ken and his brother were both available for anything we needed. You are steps from the beach that you will practically own, we saw few others in the entire cove. Comfortable, clean, convenient and I would definitely recommend..

    December 2013
  • Ken and his brother were great! Dan and I had a wonderful time kayaking, hiking, and listening to the ocean in the morning. You really couldn't ask for better hosts or a better location. Jaco is close for groceries or if you feel like going out to eat, but you are still remote enough that you feel like you are a million miles away from everything. What a great trip!

  • The reservation was canceled 60 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    October 2013
  • Me and my husband just spent Aug. 31 thru Sept. 6 at Ken and Marlen's beautiful beachfront villa. Included was a Toyota Land Cruiser 4x4 that came with cell phone and GPS, Ken even loaned us a couple of umbrellas and flashlight. It was amazing, everything was what they had said. We didn't get to meet Marlen, but Ken was a great guy. The place was very clean with everything you need. Close to town and restaurants. We will definitely go back and stay here. Couldn't have asked for a better host.

About
I moved to Costa Rica 2 years ago..fell in love with a wonderful women named Marlen & got married. We both love to be around people... It's wonderful to build relationships with the Vacationers that stay at our Private Beach Villa..! We love to accommodate them in every way possible. We like walking on the Beach, Music & Bar-B-Q's, and just being outdoors is great for us..! So having Guests share in their experiences while their here in Costa Rica and sharing with them what it's like to Travel around the Country to take in the different sites is fun for Marlen & I... they leave with a full experience of--- Costa Rica. The Beaches the Animals the Zip Line Tour..! For them to enjoy the Great Culture and the Ticos who live in Costa Rica & see and enjoy the sites... is what.. Costa Rica -- is all about..! Pura Vida..!
