We were travelling with 3 generations: an infant, a three-year old, their Parents and.. Glamma. Hence,
there were many details to streamline in advance of the trip and each one was handled expertly and efficiently by Roxana, Concierge at Tropical Homes. Roxana's quick responses and practical advice simplified the complicated and allowed us to relax and enjoy the beautiful Villa de Oro.
As another Reviewer mentioned, the photos do not do it justice. The villa is on a breath-taking site with 180 deg. views of the village lights, the ocean, the islands and the jungle. Each night we were treated to an unrivalled long lasting sunset. The Villa itself is luxurious and relaxed. Vaulted two story ceiling in the great room with dramatic glass doors on two sides that can be opened to the breeze and lead out to a dining table on the terrace. Outstanding views from both the main and second floors and from the stunning infinity pool which faces west for those sunsets.
We checked out several of the beaches but found that the best one, Pence Beach, happened to be the closest to the Villa. It reminded me of Maui and I suppose the way it was 50 years ago... maybe 5 oe 6 others on the entire Bay. Gorgeous! Two of us hiked from the Villa several days and the terrain and views kept us going. The freshest of air, the green scenery, and varying views of the ocean and jungle.
Pamela, the world's best communicator, has a sheet on every detail you need to know about the Villa, local restaurants and transportation. We were so happy that Pam told us to take the Van transportation from Liberia airport to the Villa and return. Then Roxana had a rental car delivered to, and picked up, at the Villa.
Villa and location worked well for members of every generation. Son went in to Tamarindo for Diving.
Small kids loved the pool and the beach. We hiked and explored and lazed around. Thank you Pam and Norman for sharing this piece of heaven. Cannot wait to return!
