Beautiful Vacation Home
The Home: The pool area was by far our favorite hang out! The landscaping was amazing! The pictures don't show that each room has a trundle bed (roll-away bed) so our group of 4 adults and 4 kids fit very comfortably. The property manager Tingo was incredibly helpful for anything we needed.
Location: For privacy this house was perfect, it felt like a private luxury getaway. If you like to get out and about though the property was a little too far from the beach to walk (with small children) so I would suggest getting a rental car which is great for day trips to nearby locations.
Rental Car: We found out that cars can be rented from Jaco for less than at the airport. We took a private bus from the airport, had it stop at a grocery store to stock up, spent a few days lounging and enjoying the house and then took a taxi to Jaco to rent a car.
Beaches: Esterillos Beach (5 min drive) was beautiful and not too populated, we saw lots of scarlet macaws there, Jaco (15 min drive) was more commercial and a nice place for a little shopping. Manual Antonio (40 min drive) was so cool and had lots of neat restaurants (one that it an an old plane you can go in and one that is like a cruise ship that has a pool you can swim in while you wait for your food) The National Park was fabulous to see, lots of wildlife and a protected beach that was incredible. The public beach at Manual Antonio was a great location too, white sands with lots to do and see.
We had small kids so we were not able to do any excursions but our family liked to get out and about and took day trips everyday after our first few days and the other family decided not to rent a car and stayed at the house most of the time and both families that travel differently had an amazing time at this great property.

Beautiful home in tropical surroundings
We visited many places during the stay. Manuel Antonio National Park was a full day and very nice. We saw white faced monkeys, sloths, peccas and many more wild animals. We all enjoy coffee so we visited El Toledo coffee plantation near Atenas, it was a one and half hour drive but well worth it, you get to see the plants from their humble beginnings right through to the finished product.
If we get the chance to go back to Costa Rica we would definitely stay at Villa Corteza again and highly recommend it to others.

Something for all ages!
chose this house for its central location and were not disappointed. Great
restaurants, ziplining, sunset horse back riding on the beach, surfing, gorgeous parks and beaches and tons of other fun are very accessible from the house location. My husband rented a mountain bike for the week and found many areas nearby to ride. The caretakers, Patrick and Leidy, are very personable and helpful. They arranged a fishing outing for the guys and offered lots of information about the
area. The owner is also great to work with. He was very prompt and patient in
responding to my many question filled emails. We have rented many vacation homes but this is one of our favorites. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking to get the most out of their Costa Rica vacation.
