Casa Tica Linda, Costa Rica: Reviews

August 2012 – Kathy M and Family - Texas

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this property! It is a beautiful and spacious 3 master bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, gated home. The grounds are groomed perfectly and the pool in the back adds a nice touch. The home has all the amenities from home and we felt so comfortable being here for 9 days. It is in a perfect location near Villa Lapas Hotel and Suites and Pura Vida Gardens. We enjoyed meeting Buck who manages the property, along with Noilyn who cleans the house each day! We did so many wonderful things during our stay here. The book that the owner provides lists all the restaurants and activities in the area. I highly recommend going through the book, as they were great ideas. Make sure to lounge on the back porch in the mornings so you can see and photograph the beautiful scarlet macaws. What a site! We loved our time here and the only regret is not having more downtime. There is just so much to do and see while in Costa Rica. So, that just means another trip to visit this beautiful country. We will definitely visit again. Enjoy your stay here at the incredible Casa Tica Linda!

June 2012 – Terri W and Family - Texas

I travelled to Costa Rica in June, 2012 with my husband and two teenage children (16 & 19), and what a memorable experience we had! We were in awe of Casa Tica Linda from the minute we entered, and I cannot say enough words to describe it except no hotel room could ever beat the "at home" feeling that we felt during our six day stay. It was clean and well maintained, and everyday Noilyn would come in, pick up, and make the beds, offering a welcome and refreshing feeling of coming home after touring all day. The property is absolutely gorgeous, nestled in the tropical rainforests, and we felt safe and secure at all times. The property manager, Buck, became our friend and greeted us from the minute we arrived and was always available to assist in any way possible. He was very helpful in offering suggestions when we asked and was an enjoyable person to talk to. 

During our stay, booked a fishing trip with Gino and Nema who cooked our catches on a private beach. We also went four wheeling in Jaco and took a 4 hour trip through the mountain, which included stops at a waterfall and a stop at "Rancho Shaddy" for a snack. We rode horses on the beach one morning and took a guided tour of Manuel Antonio National Park. Hiring a tour guide is definitely worth the money because without him, we would not have seen anything near what we saw. We enjoyed many of the restaurants suggested in the book provided for guests. 

Our stay would not have been half the experience if we had not stayed at Casa Tica Linda!  I would definitely recommend it, and if I ever have the opportunity, I will surely go back!

March 2012 – The Girls from Newfoundland & Labrador Canada

I have been raving about our stay in Casa Tica Linda since my return, showing pictures to any and everybody. 
I loved the *sounds* of the outdoors, and the villa itself was perfect for our all-girls trip (each of us had our own suite - which was very sweet!). Breakfasts and four dinners were consumed on the premises - loved the grill!). And of course, the pool was a treat. 
I loved the feeling of seclusion at the villa, yet so much was close by (just a short drive to Tarcoles, Herradura and Jaco). 
Buck and Noilin and Nelson and Henry made our stay tops. And getting to meet Steve and Bobbie was a nice treat! 
The 10 days on the coast were the highlight of the trip, and I have recommended Costa Rica as a must visit to anyone who will listen.

December 2011 – Victoria and Family – North Carolina

This was the perfect backdrop to our family vacation in Costa Rica. Nestled in the jungle (off the main highway), the house is huge and perfect for anyone wishing to have both private spaces (3 master bedrooms) and common living areas. The open floor plan, huge kitchen, and pool/ patio area make it easy to congregate and feel at home. 

From the beginnings of our interaction with the owners, every possible detail was taken care of. They are prompt and courteous in responding to emails with our many questions. They supplied detailed directions from the airport and information about sights in the area. The home has extensive security, a brand new HE washing machine, a gas grill, and anything else you could want on vacation. But it feels comfortable and luxurious the moment you walk in the door. Thanks to daily housekeeping, it was kept immaculate throughout our weeklong stay.

The location was about 5 minute walk to Tarcoles Beach; 20 minutes to a touristy beach in Playa Herradura and 30 minutes to Jaco. Just over an hour to SJO Airport. It enabled us to see many sights in Costa Rica through day trips to Manuel Antonio and Monteverde Cloud Forest. Yet, we never felt like we were in heavily touristy location (like Tamarindo or Jaco). 

It was an ideal getaway and I would recommend it unequivocally. Considering that we were a party of 6 (ranging from 26-65 years in age), it was also a great value for the money.

June 2010 – Honeymooners - Colorado

This place was great, and I would definitely recommend it. The property is beautiful, all the people involved with it are good people and very easy to work with. You will be well looked after here.  The location was central and allowed us to take day trips to Manuel Antonio, and Montezuma. This is a good location if you are renting a car and want to drive around and see some good spots. Nearby Carara National Park has some excellent wildlife, macaws everywhere, monkeys, I saw a dart frog, the list goes on.  If you do come here, I'd suggest introducing yourself to Buck, the property manager, and his wife as soon as possible. They are extremely friendly and helpful people. They are a great resource for anything local, and will help you out with anything you need. The locals call him Bob because they can't pronounce Buck.

January 2010 – Family Vacation - California

We stayed in the Tica Linda house for 2 weeks. My wife and I are nature lovers and this house is a perfect place for those who want to experience the rain forest, yet stay in a luxurious home. National Parks, private reserves and hiking trails are all within a few miles of the house. Every day and night I would see different creatures in the backyard. There are also beaches nearby. The house was very clean, and the housekeeper was excellent! My two grown sons and their wives joined us the second week, and the house is perfect in that each had their own room and bath and privacy. The house would be great for two or three couples staying together. The book that the owner provided was very helpful, providing information on nearby restaurants, stores and activities. We enjoyed a very memorable meal at the nearby Inka Grill which I wholeheartedly recommend to everyone staying at Tica Linda. We enjoyed both relaxing at the house and listening to the sounds of the jungle and seeing the country on day trips. The weather was great, although I wish it would have rained at least once so we could experience rain in the rainforest. We hope to return to this magical place !
