WELCOME TO VILLA TUCAN TANGO & Casita

Thank you for looking at Villa Tucan Tango Vacation Home! You can stop here! You have found a truly amazing well - maintained home with a fantastic pool & view.

Luxurious & comfortable. Read the reviews!

We allow up to 8 guests to stay at the main Villa.

Always ask if we give discount's!

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 T.V if you want.

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.

Manuel Antonio is only 30 minutes away. Great day trip! 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!

Extra Casita, We do have a wonderful Casita available if one of your family or friends staying at the main villa would like a little more privacy or room. Please email or call me for pictures. The Casita is only rented to guests staying at the Main Villa. It's prefect for 1 or 2 guests that would like more privacy but spend most their time at the Main Villa. Again with the Main Villa and Extra Casita the max is 8 guests. Price add on is $50 a night.

Ed and Nansie or a staff member will be there to help you with getting used to your surroundings. We are 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.

Simply Stunning.

  • 5 of 5
What can I say that hasn't already been said about this beautiful home and it's fantastic owners? The house is nothing short of spectacular. The pool, views, and floral surroundings are breathtaking. The smells, the sights and sounds, the vibe in general, were all phenomenal. This home is bursting with class and character. I, my daughter, little sister, and two of their friends (all in their mid twenties) loved our stay here tremendously. It was better in every way than what we anticipated or could of asked for. You simply can't go wrong by booking this lovely home. Ed and Nansie, the owners, were very easy to work with. They were professional but still very real and down to earth. They're a wealth of information when it comes to Dominical. After reading review after review about horrid rental car experiences and the bad habits of Costa Rican drivers, Ed and Nansie advised me to use their driver Nacho. I thanked God the whole time we were in Costa Rica that they introduced us to Nacho. Nacho is simply the coolest. He's a really great guy. Nacho is very punctual and extremely patient. I don't think the man knows how to say no. He even had his mother to make us some delicious Costa Rican Tamales after I asked him if he knew of a local place that made them. I learned Costa Ricans mostly eat these delicious treats around Christmas time. But instead of just saying no, they're not in season, he had them made for me. How freaking cool is that? Nacho is a great asset to Villa Tucan Tango and I promise you if you hire him your trip will be better for it. So add a beautiful property, plus great owners, beautiful Costa Rica, and Nacho, and you end up with a life experience that you will cherish forever.

After a very long 9 months of anticipation and a difficult trip maneuvering the snow and cancelled fights, your home was much more than ever anticipated! The website does not do it justice!
The house is extraordinaire in every way from the artistic touches, the view, and every convenience known to man. We thoroughly enjoyed spending our 30th wedding anniversary here with our kids and significant others. Nansie and Ed were both a wealth of information. It was like having our own personal concierge at a 5 star resort.

We loved the horseback riding and the jumping off the waterfalls, the canopy tour and Manuel Antonio park.

Thank you so much for all your helpful tips; we also enjoyed all the restaurants you suggested, particularly Tortilla Flats. Also, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner prepared at the house by Chef Nacho.

Aside from the adventures we loved the relaxation and fun of your home. The pool was awesome especially with the swim-up bar. We enjoyed having Tango come visit too!

In closing we well never be able to thank you enough for your hospitality and generosity in opening your home to us. By far one of our best vacations: We will definitely be back and please come visit us sometime.

Un séjour inoubliable!

  • 5 of 5
Préparant mes prochaines vacances je me suis dit que je dois à Nansie et Ed de revenir sur ce site et laisser mon commentaire.
Nous avons passé deux semaines magnifiques à Villa Toucan avec une autre famille - en tout, 4 adultes et 4 enfants (de 9 a 15 ans) en Juillet 2014. La maison est magnifique et nos hôtes étaient toujours souriants, disponibles, et prêts à aider. Si ce n'était pour tout ce que la région a à offrir aux visiteurs, il aurait été facile de rester à villa Toucan pour se relaxer au bord de la piscine et regarder les couchers de soleil. On a particulièrement adoré le couple de Toucans qui venait chaque jour - ainsi qu'un groupe de aracaris venu manger les mangos juste à côté de la douche extérieure. Deux de nos excursions préférées ont été le ziplining et tour dans le refuge de Hacienda Barù, ainsi que le tour du parc national de Corcovado avec Osa Wild (osaaventura.com) à Puerto Jimenez. Très déçus par contre par le parc de Manuel Antonio qui était bien trop touristique à notre goût et avait perdu son charme de parc naturel. C'est une très belle région pour les amoureux de la nature, mais on y trouve aussi de très bons restaurants ainsi que des plages pour tous les goûts. Nous avons hâte de revenir!

Perfect Place for an escape from winter

  • 5 of 5
What a great spot. We didn't want to leave! Nansie and Ed the owners are fantastic.
We came down for 10 days with a group of friends for a 50th birthday escape. Nansie was great in helping to arrange our transport from airport to the house with the help of Sonia from Uvita travel. The house had everything you need, great kitchen to cook in. No better place to watch the sunset! Pool is amazing, great place to relax, swim up bar is wonderful spot to get out of the sun but stay in the water. Great showers both inside and outside. Plenty of room in the house for 4 couples, each with their own bathrooms. Has satellite Tv but we hardly used it. they have a large selection of DVD's at the house.
Location is between Uvita and Dominical, good little grocery stores in both towns, local fish guy just 2 min from bottom of the driveway. 4x4 car rental is a good idea, driveway and getting to other places you will want to go is much easier. Great restaurants in Dominical, neat local places too.(PorQueNo was our favorite) Beaches are great, we did zip line tour and snorkeling tour both were very good. Not hard to get to any activities house is in a great spot.
Will definitely return!

our 5th trip to Costa Rica and by far the best

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 7 adults enjoyed our week at Villa Tucan Tango. Our hosts, Ed & Nansie, were terrific, from arranging a awesome cook for a home cooked seafood New Year's Eve dinner to beach and restaurant recommendations. The villa is in a perfect location just south of Dominical and "only" a few minutes off Hwy. 34. This is our 5th trip to Costa Rica and by far the best location and accommodations. We are looking forward to returning. Pura Vida, Tom, Sally and family.
