Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
LOCATED 3 MINUTES FROM ENTRANCE OF CARARA NATIONAL PARK!!!!!!
Why settle for an 500 square foot room in a hotel, when you can relax in a spacious 2,700 square foot private villa with private pool.
Casa Tica Linda is conveniently located only 33 miles from the international airport in San Jose and on the popular Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Casa Tica Linda is located a few miles north of Herradura Beach and and the bustling popular tourist destination of Jaco Beach. As soon as you enter the front door, you are greeted with a panoramic view of the rainforest covered mountain located on the opposite bank of the beautiful Tarcolitos River.
Casa Tica Linda is absolutely perfect for one, two or three couples or a large family.
3 private Master Suites, each with a king bed, a spacious bathroom.
Walk-in closets and lots of storage space.
The Butterfly Suite features a panoramic view of the surrounding rainforest and private access to the pool and deck.
The Macaw Suite has a private patio and waterfall fountain.
The Toucan Suite has views of the rainforest, access to the backyard and pool, and a jetted tub and shower combination.
The spacious combined kitchen and dining room make it the perfect space for all guests to gather for meals, games, etc. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and features granit counter tops and new stainless steel appliances. A whisper quiet washer and dryer are conveniently located in a closet off the dining room. The kitchen/dining room offers views of the pool and the surrounding rainforest.

EXPERIENCE THE SERENITY OF THE RAINFOREST:
If you want to stay in the middle of the hustle and bustle and nightlife of nearby Jaco Beach, then Casa Tica Linda is not for you. However, if you want to experience the real Costa Rican tropical rainforest with the unique opportunity of spotting the rare Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, monkeys, etc. from the privacy of your own private pool and deck, then Casa Tica Linda is your ticket to a tropical paradise.
NEARBY AMENITIES AND ACTIVITIES:
The private serenity of Casa Tica Linda is only 15 to 20 minutes from the Los Suenos Resort and all of its amenities as well as the exciting nightlife, restaurants, and shopping of Jaco Beach, one of the most popular tourist and surfing destinations of all Costa Rica. It is also just minutes away from Carara National Park, Pura Vida Gardens, the Tarcoles River where you can book tours to view crocodiles and birds. There are also several near-by canopy tours with zip lines, hikes with hanging bridges, rainforest trams, golf, world-class sport fishing, surfing, fine dining, and casinos.
SECURITY: Equipped with an ADT security system.
Daily maid service comparable to up-scale hotels is included. You may make arrangements for the maid to do your laundry and/or ironing.
EXTRA LARGE GROUPS AND FAMILIES:
For those with extra large families or groups, Casa Maganda, the luxury villa located next door may also be booked. See VRBO Listing #228323 for a complete description. The two units together can accommodate up to twelve persons.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We got back late Sunday and have been trying to catch up at the office ever since. We had a great time. Casa Tica Linda was very nice, very well kept and perfect size for three couples. Buck and the other folks we met couldn’t have been any nicer and your help with directions and suggestions made the trip very easy. None of us are beach people so instead we did a lot of touring of the rain forest and river, hiked in the national park and made a couple of jaunts down to Jaco but mainly just relaxed and enjoyed the scenery and the serenity. We sampled several of the local restaurants in the book and enjoyed trying the local foods.
Thanks for all your help and please let Steve know how much we enjoyed it.

Beautiful home and adventurous location
Beautiful Villa in Costa Rica
Love Casa Tica Linda!
A perfect location, with benefits!
The house is just down the road, walking distance from Hotel Lapas, where we enjoyed a canopy tour and met Randall, who served as out guide for a trip to Cararra National park the next day too. Carrara is only about 5-10 drive from the house too.
We were blessed with a back yard visit from a toucan at least 4 mornings while sitting out drinking our coffee. The scarlett macaw couple also made multiple appearances. The abundance of bird life and sightings were more than we expected and made us glad we brought our binoculars.
After dark the cacophony of sound from the lizards and frogs was delightful.
We enjoyed the pool, almost daily, as it was very warm and humid during our visit.
From the first contact with Diane, till the day we left, we always felt like there was support to meet our needs when anything did arise. i can't thank Diane enough for the very detailed driving instructions she sent, including photos of road sign and "ceda" instructions! Made getting to Casa Tica LInda a breeze.
Wish we had these instrustions when driving to Arenal Volcano. The GPS evidently got confused and our 3 1/2 hr drive turned into a 4 1/2 hour adventure. The friendly Tica's at a road side "soda" drew us perfect directions and we finally made it. We also ended up buying a map and found this to be very helpful.
The staff seemed very helpful and pleasant. Buck is very attentive, stopping in several evenings to check on things and offering to book day trips, recommend eateries, etc. We unfortunately were unable to make the ziplining he had arranged, 1st because of a teriffic rainstorm, then because of the "montezuma's revenge" that 3 of us of were inflicted with after our trip to the volcano.
But we all survived and were at the Beaches in 24 hours:)
Would I recommend this home to a friend. Yes, without hesitation.
The cost is very reasonable. the home accomodating, the staff and owner's, who we had the pleasure of meeting, are all helpful and available. Better service than most hotels! The beds were comfortable, the TV in the living room worked great. Lots of programs in English too.
Incredible stay in Costa Rica
From the Owner
“This is actually our second vacation rental property in Costa Rica. We decided to purchase this property as an investment because we have fallen in love with Costa Rica in general and the Central Pacific Coast area in particular. Casa Tica Linda is located right next door to our other property VRBO #228323 which helps in the management and offers our guests with larger families or groups the option of two adjacent properties.”

From the Owner
“The best thing about this property is that it has three private master suites. This allows three couples to vacation together and share costs without sacrificing their privacy. Because the villa wraps around the pool on three sides, the pool and deck become part of the living space. It is so peaceful to relax on the deck and simply enjoy the sights and sounds of the river and surrounding rainforest.”
