Villa Tucan Tango Tropical Luxury - Infinity Pool - Wow views !


Property Details

Updated: Dec 16, 2014
5 Bdrms- 4 Baths - Sleeps 2 to 8 - Extra casita if needed Ask us!

WELCOME TO VILLA TUCAN TANGO and it's Companion Zulay's Casita. The Main Villa is called Villa Tucan Tango. We allow up to 8 guests to stay at the main Villa.

2 suites: Extra large king beds and full baths

2 smaller bedrooms with double beds and full baths

Plus a large Loft with Queen bed (no bath). Great view!

Zulay’s Casita:

Adding the extra Casita can be a nice touch if you have 3 couple's and all want a large master bedroom. Total guest for 'Both' the Main Villa & the extra Casita is 8. Just depends on how you want to use them. Ask us what works best. We normally keep the number to 8 guests as it is just more pleasant but if you have young children let us know and we will see what we can do.

Special Rate Consideration given to parties of 4 or less.

First reaction when you step through the monkey carved door' of Tucan Tango is, Wow, what a view! And what a house!

Villa Tucan Tango is 'One of a Kind' with 'SERIOUS TREE TOP CANOPY VIEWS. Comfortable living to the max! A kitchen to die for and a large breakfast bar to gather at or maybe use your computers. Large screen T.V that is awesome! You can even sit in the pool and watch football.

Perfect for one couple to larger families.

The Villa is sitting next to 40 acres of the Tapir Biological Reserve so your spectacular view is Jungle Reserve, Mountains and Beach Coastline to Manuel Antonio Park. Best of all, this fabulous 180-degree or more view and is only 300 ft. up, which means no long treks driving up to the top of the mountain to get home! This easy drive gives you more time for kicking' back with a glass of wine, or a Margarita, to enjoy a lovely sunset & the “Awesome” infinity pool.

Heads up! A 4x4 car is a must for the entire area of the Southern Zone known as Costa Ballena or the Dominical Area. Don’t let anyone tell you different!

Zulay's Casita is never rented by it self, only is used if the Main Villa Tucan Tango would like to use it.

Please read our reviews. Our guests tell it all!

Ed and Nansie or a staff member will be there to help you with getting used to your surroundings. They’re like your own private concierges. They can tell you where the best-hidden places are to eat, or help you with tours, cooks, massages etc. Also they know the best Car Companies in the area. They work for you! Or you can explore yourself! All is good at Villa Tucan Tango.

Dear Nansie and Ed,

You guys are awesome! And your Villa is beyond amazing. We love everything about it! As you know, during our month –long stay in Costa Rica, “we tried out” four different residences, the last of which was Tucan Tango. None of the other Villas were even in the same ballpark as Tucan Tango! Our only regret during our trip was not booking the entire month at your villa.

Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us. And it was so nice to get to know the two of you. You were so helpful and gracious. It was so obvious to us now how you have been able to create such a successful rental business. We couldn’t possibly have had better accommodations if we had stayed at the Penthouse at The Marriott, nor would the service have been as good. You should be SO PROUD of what you do, because you are in business of helping others make memories that will last a lifetime—and no one does it better than the two of you.

Thank you!!
Wes & Vicki Mathis

A fantastic escape from reality

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here at end of our holiday in Costa Rica, the villa is beautiful so much attention to detail in the design, furnishings and artwork. For me the best part about the villa was the view, we never drew the curtains so every morning I woke up in my immense bed as the sun came up and I could see and hear the ocean below. There is always a slight breeze as the house is up on a hill and because there are full size mosquito screens on every door and window we never neaded the air conditioning, the overhead fans were enough to keep us cool. We saw toucans in the trees and heard the howler monkeys nearby.The owners Ed and Nansie live next door and were super friendly and helpful re the best places to eat and things to in the area. We had a power cut one night and Nansie came up to make sure we were all ok and had candles and torches. In fact we were so chilled we were still just sat relaxing on the sofa and enjoying the darkness. My girls loved the infinity pool and the dogs and cats down by Nansie's house were a bonus. You have to drive to get to the beach but that was never an issue, do go to Hermosa beach, a no frills family beach where all the locals go, it's beautiful, one of my all time favourite beaches. Riding along the beach at ranch la Merced is worth doing too. If you don't mind a bumpy mountain road then go to the Jolly Roger, great margueritas and a beautiful place to watch the sun set. We had a very happy stay here, my only regret was that we hadn't brought some friends along to share it with.

Phenomenal Villa and vacation!

  • 5 of 5
There are very few times in life where you can truly relax and enjoy your family and awe inspiring scenery! Nansie and Ed's hospitality and knowledge made that truly possible for us. Costa Rica is even more beautiful than I imagined! During our stay we were able to do the Dominical AtV tour, Osa Mountain Zipline and Coto Brus Whitewater Rafting tours. Not to mention, relaxing by the infinity pool and taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings.
Being able to reconnect with our families before returning to our everyday chaos made this trip even more memorable.
Thank you Nansie and Ed! Your Villa is fabulous and you were both instrumental in our stay!

3rd and best stay in Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a great stay at Villa Tucan Tango. This was my 3rd trip to Costa Rica, all of which were great, but this stood out as the best and I have to say that is was because of the home we stayed in. Ed and Nansie can help you find local gems and truly enjoy your stay no matter why you are there. Simply beautiful home. So much to do within a 30 minute drive, great food, great people, wonderful wildlife and so much more. Can't wait to get back down that way.

"May 10th 2014

Thank-you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful house!

We all agreed this was the best vacation we have ever been on.

Your house is amazing and really unique, it gave us the opportunity

to see Costa Rica instead of staying at a resort and never leaving.

The view is indescribable and breathtaking. We would all come back in

a heart beat and will miss it a lot.

This place is magical and was beyond our highest expectations! Love every minute.

Our Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My four college friends and I just returned from a glorious week at this spectacular villa. We are now 60ish and found this luxury rental to be perfect for our needs. The property itself is all it is purported to be in the descriptions and pictures. Gorgeous views, spacious living area, awesome pool, an outside shower that was heavenly (I never used my inside one!). But the best part of our stay was the delightful owners, Ed and Nansie, who gave us invaluable information both before and during our stay on everything from where to rent a car, to when to book excursions, and they even made restaurant reservations for us! Highly recommended!!!!
