My family and I have stayed in Villas Vista Mar 3 times now and it is by far an all-time favorite of ours in Costa Rica. Located on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this property offers three different types of accomodation: a large apartment with two queen beds, a smaller apartment with 1 queen bed and a sofa-bed, and...

We spent 3 weeks at the Villa Vista Mar in March. The place is gorgeous, beautiful apartment, grounds and pool. We stayed in apt 3, it was well equipped, bright and had a lovely view of the ocean. It was just a 10 minute walk from the beach, and the short walk was also a great place for seeing many...

Ed & Lorrie made our first trip to Costa Rica a great experience. The balcony was a wonderful place for coffee in the morning, listening to the howler monkeys, the birds, and the ocean waves. April is hot and dry, so after the short walk to Ocotal beach, jumping in the ocean was sweet as well as afternoons spent poolside...

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Villa Vista Mar. Easy commute from LIR when we arrived. Pick up at LIR arranged by Ed. Once there, a very quiet and serene setting (which is what we needed)...great pool and pool area...walk to beach was not difficult...(Playa Ocotal beach is beautiful but a tad bit small for our tastes)...local restaurants were...

This was our second stay at Villa Vista Mar. The first one was six years ago and I had such fond memories of the place, I knew I had to return. We arrived and were immediately greeted by the owners and given a tour of the property along with safety and security requirements. We stayed in Apartment #2, and it...

We spent two weeks with Ed and Lorrie at Villa Vista Mar, and loved every minute of it. They were warm and friendly, the property is beautiful and well maintained.
