This house is about mid playa del coco. An easy walk to the town and easier walk to local restaurants. Sal en Fueguo is an excellent steak house just down the road. Very good location for driving to local sites. Hour to rio del negro hot springs and many other local beaches. 2 bedroom house with everything you need. 75 yards from the water and we loved it.

Great location with a few issues. First the WiFi password wasn’t written anywhere in the welcome booklet. I think the page for it was missing because there was an empty sleeve in the booklet. Also the stove and oven didn’t work. We called the support number and they gave us the WiFi password and told us how the stove and oven was noted as not working before so it should have been fixed before we got there.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Reid. We apologize for the miscommunication and appreciate your reaching out for assistance. We hope to host you again soon for another great getaway!

Locación y el lugar

Esta propiedad queda en la primera línea de playa. La atención del grupo de Vacasa fue sobresaliente. Muchas gracias a Kevin y su equipo, que en dos oportunidades atendieron nuestras solicitudes en menos de 30 minutos. La comunicación fue muy buena. La cabaña tiene lo necesario para unas buenas vacaciones. Sugiero que los propietarios arreglen y le pongan un candado a la puerta de acceso a la playa, para evitar que personas que no son huéspedes entren para usar la toma de agua exterior de la casa.

The cleaning staff was great, they let us in eary and the house was very clean. The star is for them. Around the second day into our stay the outside light bulbs were taken, the third night there was a car drove through the property and parked in the lot next to us, played very very loud music from 1;00 am until 3:00 am. A homeless man came to our door twice asking for money. The lock box out side the house was taken along with my sun glasses that were sitting on the table just outside the door. ( I seen the homeless man walking the beach the next day wearing them). There was also another man rustling through the garbage bins that were for the beach. They were located just outside the lot of the Tico Beach house, so if you were sitting outside at night you were able to see and hear this every night. I informed Vacasa of all this as it was happening they always texted back saying they would inform the local property manager, but we never seen anyone from vacasa and still no outside light for the whole week that we stayed there. The beach is very lovely though!

This little beach house was a lovely place to stay for our 4 nights in Playa del Coco. There were a few things shy of perfection, but they were quite minor.
The kitchen was well equipped for 2-4 people, it contained a full-sized refrigerator, an apartment sized propane stove (with oven), and plenty of dishes and pots and pans for guest use. There were nice towels, and the soaps were nice (one missed being filled, but that was minor).
We couldn't get the living room fan nor the t.v. to work, but they were not that important, as we don't really watch t.v. on vacation, and the other fans and air conditioning units took care of the temperatures adequately.
The location is great. To get to downtown, just walk along the beach, and it is only a 5 minute walk to the base of the main street.
We went with friends to a "newer" restaurant downtown (the Papagayo Seafood Restaurant)... PERFECT! Great food, awesome staff! And reasonable prices.
All-in-all, we enjoyed the Tica Beach House, and would highly recommend staying. If you can't handle geckos, bugs and lizards, go far away... you have to expect it in this country!
Manager response:
Hi, Susan! Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay here. The property manager has purchased a TV and fan for the unit. We hope to see you again!

Close to the beach and both shopping and dining locations. It was quiet most nights. Buildings are widely spaced on a large lot. Iguanas apparently nest under the roof tiles...they would wrestle around until the loser would be thrown out onto the would land on its feet with a thud a few feet from where we was entertaining.

The building need a kitchen and bathroom update...the double bed could use a new mattress. Basic maintenance has not been done. It would not take a lot to make this unit a star.

The location is just perfect. The house was neat, the kitchen has everything you need, the beds are very comfortable. I can’t wait to visit this house again.

The location of this house is perfect! Right on the beach. It is easy to walk to town and had plenty of seating!
I saw a review about the shower head and want to warn that yes it can be “scary” looking but it is the a traditional shower head for Costa Rica! It is perfectly safe as long as you don’t touch the wires above it! It is how the water get hot.
The only other thing is you only get one key so if you and your guests want to do different things you have to coordinate when you’ll meet back up at the house

We stayed 4 days in this beautiful beachfront house. Nothing like waking up to the sound of the ocean and being just steps from the beach. We were 3 adults and the space was perfect for us. We went diving and they picked us up in front of La Casita. Loved the sheets and the beds as well.
