About the property

3 Bedroom Villa

Enjoy the tropics and peace from our comfortable and beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bath villa nestled in the gated beach community of Vista Ocotal that has a security guard 24/7. It is a short walk down a road to Playa Ocotal beach and Father Roosters Restaurant that is right on the beach! Villa Seaside Serenity offers you a vacation of a lifetime in a serene, tropical atmosphere.

You'll love this cozy 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom space with the upgraded features, including granite counters, stainless steel appliances, tile floors, comfy beds, ceiling fans, air conditioning and washer/dryer in the unit. All linens, towels, and kitchen supplies are provided, so make yourselves at home!

Begin your day with the sand between your toes or listen to the waves roll up on the beach from the patio or balcony and enjoy spectacular sunsets on the front patio. You'll see and hear howler monkeys in the trees right outside the villa! If the pool is more your thing, just hang back and relax in the amazing pool on the property located within steps from the Villa. Also located steps away from the world famous Father Rooster restaurant where you can dine or just enjoy a cocktail while viewing the ocean. Located only 5 minutes, by car, from Playas del Coco where you will find colorful shops, delightful restaurants, medical facilities, supermarkets, attractions, and nightlife.


Guests of our villa enjoy access to Coco Bay Estates and The Beach Club at no additional cost! You'll be treated like a VIP and feel like a celebrity on vacation. The unit is only steps away from Playa Ocotal beach and The Beach Club. Coco Bay Estates is a short bike ride or car ride (only about a 1.5 miles from your villa). A map will be provided upon confirmation of your reservation. You'll have access to three pools, Jacuzzi, tennis courts, fitness center and great restaurants.

Traveling with kids? You'll love the games available at Coco Bay Estates. There is also a little activities rental stand near Father Rooster Restaurant on the beach where you can book other adventures, like kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, surfing and more! We also have available in the Villa, beach chairs and umbrellas as well as some snorkeling gear, children’s games, beach balls and pool floats.

You'll have a great meal every time at Father Roosters while enjoying a beautiful beach setting and gorgeous Costa Rica sunsets. The Congo Trail Zipline and Monkey Sanctuary is only about 20-30 minutes from Vista Ocotal. Enjoy the gorgeous waterfall at Llano de Cortes - only about an hour away. The developers of Vista Ocotal have also opened a great adventure park called Diamante Eco Adventure Park, where you can enjoy a dual ocean view zip line including the superman zip line. It also has the largest animal sanctuary in Guanacaste as well as being enjoy the hammock beach or walking and hiking trails. Another favorite spot of ours is Guachipelin that offers a FULL DAY of fun, including zip line, river rafting, horseback riding, butterfly exhibit, hot springs AND includes a wonderful lunch - ALL FOR ONLY $85 for the day. Guachipelin is about 1 to 1.5 hours away from Vista Ocotal. You'll find our beach villa is a perfect location as a 'hub' for you to be so close to the beach and just a quick jaunt to so many activities and excursions. Make this beach villa your little home-away-from-home as you explore Costa Rica!


We will provide detailed information after the villa is booked. We are happy to answer any questions guests have prior to their vacation. We also have a local property manager, located in the office right beside our villa, who will take care of any requests while the guest is staying in the villa.


Taxis are very affordable and will cost only about $5-7 to get to the little town of Coco. If you like to be active, it's fun to get around on foot or bicycle (which can be rented). If you want to venture to the jungle or other sites, you can easily rent a car. Rental cars are pretty inexpensive, but do require you to purchase the mandatory insurance and will place a hold on your credit card which will be returned after you return the car if no damages.

About Pamela Montgomery

Hola! We are the owners of Seaside Serenity, Vista Ocotal Beach #7 villa. We are the Wades and are married and live in the Washington DC area. I am originally from Canada and my husband is from Long Island, NY, and as fate may have it, we met while working/stationed in the Middle East. We both have a passion for traveling. Since I have always told my husband that I would like to retire somewhere warm and tropical, we took the plunge to own in this amazing gated community that allows us to visit Costa Rica often AND to share this wonderful space with other travelers until we decide to retire fulltime. We hope you will love this beach close villa, and all of the amenities and the amazing Costa Rica adventures as much as we do! Pura Vida!

Pamela Montgomery purchased this villa in 2013

Why Pamela Montgomery chose Guanacaste

We love that the villa is just a short walk to the beach, the Beach Club or Father Roosters. The pool and BBQ area is lush and relaxing. We also love that we and our guests have access to additional fantastic amenities at no additional cost! Being close to the town of Coco makes shopping and sightseeing easy. Also, knowing that quality medical care is close by is comforting. There is a guard 24/7 in our gated community to make us and our guests feel safe. Our local property manager, Pam Montgomery, is warm and friendly, so you'll feel welcomed when you come to stay at our Vista Ocotal Beach Villa!

What makes this villa unique

Being nestled in a safe, gated community with lush, tropical landscaping all around you will allow you to feel that Costa Rica feeling of PURA VIDA right away! The nature you see right outside the villa, from tropical birds, howler monkeys, iguanas and flora will give you that 'we're in a tropical paradise' feeling from the moment you set foot in the villa. The views of the ocean from our living room and partial from our master bedroom along with the close proximity of steps from the beach made us fall in love with our Villa. Having the beach so close (only 120 meters - or a 1-2 minute walk down a private path) makes this location perfect! The access to all of the extra amenities at the Beach Club and Coco Bay Estates will give you that luxury property feeling, but at a fraction of the cost!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful week. My new wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It was bigger and more comfortable than expected. 3 beds and 3 bath rooms. The kitchen was well set up, and you could cook almost anything here. They also had full laundry in suite. There were plenty of loungers at the pool.and an area to BBQ there as well. Its a little far from Coco, so I suggest renting a golf cart in town. Watch for the 4 speed bumps heading into Coco. The hosts were extremely nice. Pam and Gill were very helpful. Gill would work hard to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. And the people that ran the coffee shop stood on there heads to make us happy. A nice little breakfast or a light lunch. Such friendly people. We had Howler Monkey's right at out condo the day we left but you could walk 150 yards and see them almost any day. Father Roosters is very close, and its a great place for lunch, dinner or just a drink on the beach. There was a very friendly cat hanging around. We fed him every day. We called him Fred. Call him what ever you like, cats don't come anyways. LOL It was a terrific week.

Beautiful Condo!!! Clean, Comfortable and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything you will need for a great stay in Costa Rica. It is spacious, modern, clean and comfortable. There is a full bathroom off each bedroom and one bedroom with an en suite. The kitchen and dining area are spacious and they have provided absolutely every appliance, dishware or utensil you may need. The pool was beautiful and clean and we were often the only ones using it which was nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was also a bonus. A 3 min walk to the ocean and Father Rooster's, a beach side restaurant that serves excellent food with a view. It is only a 5-10 min drive to Coco. It is quiet, gated, safe and so relaxing. Highly recommend this condo.

We've been to Costa Rica several times in the past few years and this is the best accommodations yet. Clean, spacious and kitchen very well equipped with everything we needed from cork screw to French press! We found it exactly as advertised.

Perfect vacation villa

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing villa! It was exactly like it shows in the pictures. We travelled with two other couples and it was perfect for us! Big enough for all of the eat together or play games at the table and to have some of our own space too. Each couple had their own bathroom. Very quiet, we had the pool to ourselves for the first week of our vacation. We spent a lot of time in the pool just behind the villa, at the beach, which is a two minute walk (I've walked farther to get to the beach at some all-inclusive resorts!) and in Coco, the closest town. It was great having the outdoor kitchen with BBQ by the pool. It was such a bonus to be able to drink the water right out of the tap. Not like in Mexico, where you're afraid you'll end up spending half your vacation in the bathroom! There's lots to see and do if you are the adventurous type, or it's perfect for relaxing since it's such a quiet community. Costa Rica is so lush and beautiful, even in the dry season. The owners were so helpful and sent us a ton of information. We loved it! Would definitely go back!

We had an amazing holiday here. We usually get an all inclusive for vacations but never again. The sunsets are right in front of you the ocean so close. Spent alot of time in the ocean swimming and at Father Rooster's Restaurant in front of that. The pool in back is huge and barbeque right there also. All restaurants have great food in Costa Rica. The bedrooms are so comfy and lots of closet space. Air conditioning in every room (remote control for each room) for some who like it cooler than others. The people there are so nice and helpful. Next time I take my kids and grand children. Rent a vehicle though to get around, a GPS will help but very east to get around. All in all a great time and experience. The howling monkeys were so cool and all wild life is beautiful
