vacation rental description

Does your vision of vacation includes pristine, uncrowded beaches, a touch of rustic adventure, great surfing, an awesome beach for kids, and a laid-back, safe environment? If so, Playa Negra will be your perfect retreat. Being a little off the beaten tourism path (yet only 1.2 hrs from LIR airport) affords the beach town authenticity and peacefulness that can be hard to find these days.  A unique quality of Playa Negra is that there are 7+ beaches within both walking and short driving distance that offer distinctively alluring personalities: from white sand, to black sand or volcanic lava reef tidal pools; each beach's ambiance is a new adventure! A throw back to Costa Rica past, there are plenty of restaurants and near-by activities, yet this beach pueblo is thankfully condo, franchise and high-rise hotel free. You do not need a 4 wheel drive; an suv is recommended for suspension comfort. Roads are unpaved 15 minutes East and 30 minutes North; a little bouncy, yet great thing as it keeps us from getting overdeveloped like many of the popular beach towns that now look like the Florida strip.

Our Romantic Tropical Cottage is an exceptional Value in an Gated OceanFront Community. Mango Tango is about 5 minutes drive to the tiny town center, and just 200 Meters to the Pacific. The home is insid a gated community, and also offers private gated parking in front of the house. Enjoy the sound of waves from our private pool & 300SF Covered Patio with outdoor dining and lounging. Casa Mango Tango is nestled in the tree-tops on the wild-life filled river-front (Don't worry! the riverfront has no more mosquities than the oceanfront, and rarely gets the black knats that may seasonally be on the ocean in evenings). Home is just a 4 minute Stroll to the best local lava reef snorkeling spot, & 8-10 minute walk to Famous Playa Negra surfing break and "Sandy" Swimming Beach near the beachfront restaurant.

Casa Mango Tango is surrounded by mature forest, and overlooks the Pargos riverfront on a cul-de-sac (with empty lots on each side of us). Mornings and evenings the riverfront trees are often teeming with birds, Iguanas, butterflies, monkeys, squirrels, racoons, Coati Mundi's and more. Depending on the tide, you can walk from our home along the beaches to Playa's Negra (8 minutes), Avellanas (40 minutes hike or 10 minutes drive), Blanca (30 minutes hike or 15 minutes drive) and Junquillal (45 minutes hike or 15 minute drive). It is fun to try a new beach each day!

Mango Tango's 1200 Sf interior living space offers 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms. While not a large home, it's vaulted hardwood ceilings, plentiful windows and multiple french doors create a wonderful ambiance. The home size is perfect for a couple, or for up to 6 adults. Note if traveling with small children, that the downstairs bedroom entrances are separate from the home above. When renting it is for whole home and private pool, but it would not be appropriate for young children to sleep downstairs by themselves. The main floor with dining, kitchen and living area, is tree-top height; from the sofas and dining area enjoy a full wall of windows that opens outward over the mature riverfront forest, caribbean blue private pool and tropical landscape.
