I love about Villa Rita the fact that its a safe place just 200 mts away from the street, we are a goat farm/ horse carriage service and we produce organic veggies apart from the units we rent. We are a great place for family travelers to learn about organic production, lost of room for kids to run around and also quiet places to enjoy the views and relax.

We have 2 units on the property apart from our home, the property sits on almost 4 hectares where you can see lots of wild birds.

The space

Villa Rita Country Cottages Is a secure country estate nestled in the midst of organic gardens, fruit trees, horses and goats can be seen in green areas and beautiful views. Our two 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 were looking for a place that could accomodate the three of us that was pretty close to the airport. After getting the upsale on our rental car in the form of full insurance and a gps unit, we figured that we were in good shape. Unfortunately when our buddy programmed the gps to get us to the house, it turned a simple 15 minute trip into an hour long, white knuckle after dark down dirt roads affair. This is NOT Terry's fault. I only bring this up so that you can do your due diligence before you're pulling out of the rental lot after dark thinking everything is great. Needless to say, we got there a little later than expected and Terry's Mom, Rita, was very understanding and helped get us situated. Even though we were just passing through, we took the time to check out the place and meet several dogs, chickens and horses before we got on our way. We could have stayed in some crummy souless hotel, but got the experience of meeting someone from a foreign land and getting a sense of how they live their lives instead. For our family, that is what traveling is all about.

I lived in Rita's place for a month and really enjoyed it. Rita (Terry's Mom) is a nice lady and does what ever is possible to make your stay comfortable. The place is very green with horses and goats and many friendly dogs. The pool is a nice addition with panoramic view of valleys and mountains. If you are looking to be in the middle of all attractions but away from San Jose with its big city problems and heat of all the beach towns this would be a good place but only hour or so drive for all these places for a day trip or two.

The cottage was perfect for a short stay prior to flying out of the San Jose airport. It was quiet, and the friendly dogs and horses were a welcome addition! We would have loved to have had a small fan for the bedroom. Terry was helpful but not intrusive at all.

We had a great stay at Villa Rita. The house has a very homey feeling to it, it is very clean and we felt at home right away. The house is bright as a lot of natural light enters the house during the day. The bedroom and bathroom are very big, there's a lot of closet space and the kitchen is well equipped. Terry and her family were nice and helpful. There's a lot of animals - especially dogs - on the farm which our two children enjoyed very much. We definitely recommend staying at Villa Rita. Thank you for having us!

La propiedad era muy linda y de verdad mi esposa y yo disfrutamos de nuestro tiempo al cien por ciento ahí. Rita (la mamá de Terry) fue muy amable y nos ayudó con direcciones (hay una un supermercado cerca a la propiedad) y las instalaciones (parrilla y piscina). La parrilla estuvo excelente y aprovechamos de esa instalación. También, la paz y la tranquilidad del lugar son inolvidables.

El lugar es fantástico, te alojas en uno de los cottages dentro de una enorme granja. Tienes toda la independencia del mundo, pero puedes contar con la ayuda de los anfitriones si lo necesitas en algun momento (por ejemplo te cambian las bombillas si se funden o te asisten en cualquier duda). EL lugar es hiper seguro, muy familiar. Genial si viajas en pareja o sola. Ideal para desconectar y hacer vida con animales, ellos tienen una granja y puedes acceder y disfrutar de los animales que viven allí. Para mí fue una experiencia única, y repetiré seguro. AWesome for long term stays! Son gente encantadora y te sientes muy bien acogido, a pesar de ser totalmente independiente.
