About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


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.


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.


The living room features seating for six and includes a 42” LCD flat screen HDTV with cable and DVD/CD. As in the dining room, the living room has views of the pool and 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.


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.


The biggest challenge with renting a vacation home in a foreign country is that most of the time the guests are completely on their own. There is literally no one to call if there is a problem with a stopped up toilet, leaky faucet, etc. What truly sets Casa Tica Linda apart from the vast majority of vacation home rentals is our friendly and helpful on-site staff who make absolutely certain that your family’s vacation is comfortable, safe, and worry free. Buck Jackson is our property manager who lives a couple of hundred yards down the street. Buck will be there to check you in, show you around the property and take care of any issues that might come up. Buck will also help you with ideas and suggestions of things to see and do in Costa Rica. Buck’s assistant is Nelson, who lives about a mile away in Tarcoles. Nelson is Buck’s handyman and assists Buck with any maintenance or repair issues. Noilyn is our housekeeper and she will make sure that the house is clean and spotless when you return from your daily excursions.

They are all like family to us and they take pride in making sure that your stay at Casa Tica Linda is a memorable one.


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.

About Steve Sheets or Diane Daniel

Our names are Steve and Bobbie Sheets. We live in Round Rock, Texas, which is just 20 miles north of Austin. I am an attorney and Bobbie is retired after over 20 years of teaching eighth grade English. We have one son, Travis. The bird's name is Blue Boy who leads a pampered life at Pura Vida Gardens, which is just 10 minutes up the mountain from our house in Costa Rica.

Steve Sheets or Diane Daniel purchased this villa in 2009

Why Steve Sheets or Diane Daniel chose Puntarenas

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Diane,

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.

Gorgeous property, amazing staff!!

  • 5 of 5

We will never forget our stay at Casa Tica Linda! We have spent a week in paradise with our two teen children, and our two year old twins. It has been rejuvenating and relaxing. The staff (Buck, Nelson, housekeeper, groundskeeper) are superb and truly treated us like family. If we needed something, they took care of it immediately, no matter the hour. Honestly, one of the best trips of my life!!!

Beautiful Home, Beautiful Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed with a trip to Costa Rica and Casa Tica Linda this year. Costa Rica is beautiful beyond description. Fantastic mountains, rainforest, beaches, rivers, wildlife and wonderful people who were kind and generous with their time. We had a great adventure each day. Sightseeing, ziplining, crocodiles, good food and the beaches. A short drive to the town of Jaco for shopping or a little nightlife. Each evening we were able to come back to Tica Linda for relaxation. Tica Linda is a beautiful home inside and out. The living and kitchen area are large with a great view of the wildlife front and back. The backyard offers a private pool and river runs behind it. If you are patient, the toucan and the scarlet macaw “Lapa” or even an iguana can be seen from the backyard. Three separate suites make it a perfect place for three couples to stay comfortably. Everything you need to feel like you are home.

Lovely quiet home

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Tarcoles area several times, and Tica Linda is our favorite place to stay. We love the back yard and pool, the kitchen and suites. The location is perfect for bird and nature trips to the Costa Rican jungle. We watched a scarlet macaw nest right above the house, and also a pair of toucans right outside the kitchen.

Everything was well managed. The staff was available for any questions or anything we needed.

Great house in a good location

  • 4 of 5

We just finished staying in Casa Tica Linda Nice 3 master suites with comfortable beds. Air conditioning works well and the pool is nice. Parrots live in the trees above and it is located 20 mins from Jaco and 15 from Los Suenos for fishing. The hike up the road from the house ( at the white block structure ) is only 10 min drive and 45 mins ( each direction) to a great waterfall. The management send you a complete info packet and daily cleaning is excellent. Definitely coming back with friends and family.

We'll do it again.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time planning our vacation on our own and thanks to Diane it was stress free, she responded to every email and all questions and in a prompt manner which was greatly appreciated. We arrived at Tica Linda earlier than expected and were received with a buzz activity and a' come on in no problem' which was a relief. Buck was very welcoming and remained that way for rest of our stay. The house itself was well maintained and the lay out was very nice, we were 3 couples and the bedrooms were well separated for privacy and the common areas were very comfortable. Tica Linda is in a great location for day tripping, we were up and gone almost every morning for a hike and bird watching and spent our afternoon by the pool and more bird watching. Restaurants and groceries are close by and the locals are very helpful and patient. All in all it was one of the most relaxing vacations I've had. Thank you Tica Linda family for having us.

Beautiful spacious home located near many things to do and see

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited Costa Rica this summer and spent one week in Tarcoles at Tica Linda. The house had everything we could imagine or need as well as being close to restaurants, hiking, Nat'l park and beaches. Our kids enjoyed playing in the river behind the house as much as the private pool. The house was clean and well cared for and the Property Manager was very helpful and provided great insight concerning the area. I would definitely recommend this home to couples AND FAMILIES!
