About This Listing
Villa Rita Country Cottages Is a secure country estate nestled in the midst of gardens, fruit trees, green areas and beautiful views. Our three cottages are the perfect place to establish your home base while visiting Costa Rica.
The estate is just 15 minutes west of the international airport near the small town of La Garita in Alajuela on route 3 and 4 miles away from route 27. Route 27 will take you to Guanacaste or Jaco or Manuel Antonio, We are now at 1 hour and 10 minutes from Jaco (real time), about 1 hour from Poas Volcano and Water fall gardens.
We offer for your enjoyment our swimming pool and poolside BBQ, which is a warm and friendly spot to kick back and enjoy playing cards or just plain relaxing. Wire less internet available.
We are located 200 yards off route 3, in a gated, guarded property, on the direct bus route to San Jose where you can catch a connecting bus to anywhere in Costa Rica.
We do accept pets but they must be very well educated and there will be an additional fee non refundable for cleaning purposes. We run a family orientated business. We are gay friendly and respect every ones privacy, but we care for our guess too. If you will be out traveling and will arrive late please inform us. We will give you a remote control for the gate to make your traveling easier. All units have a little out door sitting area so we do request smoker to smoke out side.
House in perfect conditions, very clean (unfortunately I can't say the same for the pool...)! The right location to visit the central valley and his beautiful villages, Atenas and Grecia are very close by. Airport is just 15 minutes by car. A peacefull place
My hostess was waiting for me when I arrived even though it was at night and gave me some essentials so that in the morning I could make coffee.This was extemely welcomed after I awakened and began the task of unpacking and getting acquanted to my surroundings. Having an enclosed front and back porch was a real plus as I had my dog with me. Her and her extended family made me feel quite at home.
We had a wonderful stay at Terry's place! Her mom picked us up in town and was extremely sweet and helpful. The cottage was clean, spacious and a quick 20 minute public bus ride (about 1 US dollar) away from the airport. Perfect!
Rita was a delightful host. Her home is an eclectic compound with goats, horses, and beautiful views from the pool patio. We enjoyed the privacy of our cabin with a fully operational kitchen. The public bus to Alajuela was cheap and easy to use. We would recommend Villa Rita to anyone arriving in Costa Rica for the first time. It's close to the airport, Rita and Terry are very helpful, and the lodgings are a great value.
Villa Rita is a great place to stay if you are touring Costa Rica. It is centrally located, just a 10 min drive to either the Pan American highway or highway 27 to the Pacific coast. A 5 min walk will get you to a bus or to a grocery store that has everything except produce. The cottage was comfortable and had all the necessities ( we stayed 6 weeks ). Being from a farm ourselves, we enjoyed the farm animals and the country atmosphere. From the rancho, the view of the central valley and the mountains beyond was second to none. Terry and her mom Rita were very friendly and accommodating, providing transportation to and from the airport and tips on what to see. We loved Costa Rica and it was a nice break from the cold Canadian winter. Gracias! Nils and Edna Trobak.
