Description from manager


EcoVida Casa Famosa with Private Pool and Tower! Walk to the Beach!

Casa Famosa is a beautifully decorated home with a private pool, huge outdoor terrace, backyard full of tropical plants and tons of extras. It gets its name from appearing on an episode of House Hunters International when this home became “famous” and one of the top rental homes in our area. This 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home is perfect for couples or a family and is still one of the most popular rental homes in Costa del Sol. This home can sleep up to 8 people with 2 king size beds, 2 single beds and a pull-out sofa. Throughout the home you will find stunning photographs of Costa Rica taken by a local photographer.

• A/C in every room

• Private pool with solar pump, outdoor shower and lounge chairs

• Large outdoor terrace on second level with gas BBQ, table, chairs and hammock

• Huge great room with kitchen, dinning room and living room

• Solar hot water tank

• Wifi and Cable TV

• Private and secure, fully fenced yard

• Back-up water tank

• Washer and dryer

• Parking for 2 cars

• Onsite Management and Information Office at the EcoVida building across from the main gate

This private home is located in a gated community that is just a few minutes walk to the pristine beach of Bejuco. The gated community of Costa del Sol has 24 hr security, 2 large community pools, tennis court, rancho and BBQ area. The community has paved streets and extensive public gardens that are meticulously maintained by the community gardeners.

We are in the perfect position to offer a truly memorable vacation experience. A short walk down the street will get you to our beach, with miles of sand to explore. A 30 minute drive gets you to Jaco, one of Costa Rica's most popular tourist destinations full of activities, nightlife and restaurants. In the local area we have amazing restaurants in the communities surrounding us, such as Esterillos Oeste, a quaint surfer town -- or even the restaurants on our beach of Playa Bejuco. Our new Town Center which is just a few minutes down the road at the entrance to Playa Bejuco offers various restaurants, a supermarket, gym, day spa and various other new businesses coming all the time. Another 30 minutes the other direction on the highway gets you to Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park, one of the most impressive nature lover's paradise in Costa Rica. It’s a wonderful place to do a day trip, but you will find our accommodation much more tranquil than staying by the busy park. In either direction, you will find hidden gems of Tico living and things to see and do! Stay a month and you still will not run out of things to do within a 30 minute drive! Relax at our beach and you will forget about everything but the sound of the ocean and wildlife around us.

At EcoVida we pride ourselves on making you as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Curl up with a great book while lounging by the private pool or hammock, let the kids run around the backyard or head out to the beach to work on your tan or try some surfing lessons! There are a ton of activities and sights to see in our area. We can assist you in finding the best of the best when it comes to car rentals, tours and activities! No matter what brings you here, you are guaranteed to enjoy your time and whatever your desire, our location is perfect.

When choosing your vacation destination, why pick a home, apartment or cabina with an absentee manager or owner when you can pick one that is only a few minutes walk away to assist you with anything you might need during your vacation? Our property, where we host our cabina guests, is just across the street from Costa del Sol. Look for “Big Blue”, our recycled shipping container building facing the street. We can offer full concierge service by planning your transportation, rental cars, tours, activities, in-home massages, cleaning services, surf board rentals, etc., as well as provide restaurant suggestions & reservations. We also offer boogie board rentals as well as other products & services in our office (by appointment or email) exclusively for EcoVida guests. Pick an EcoVida property and allow our team to make every aspect of your visit as relaxing and easy as possible.


* Remember that we only include electricity up to $20/day, so please conserve to help not only our environment but the cost of electricity for those in Costa Rica that survive on very little. Used responsibly it is almost impossible to exceed this limit.

*Deposit: $500 for less than 2 weeks. $1000 deposit for 2 weeks or more.

*Cleaning: The home will be cleaned before and after your stay. If you would like additional cleaning during your stay it is an additional fee.

*Max Occupancy: This base price is for 6 people but Casa Famosa can sleep up to 8 people (adults and children). Please inquire about the possibility of additional guests or day guests which are charged at $20/day/person.

Very Good

“Great place for a family”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2012

I came here with my family for six weeks, and it has been the perfect place for us. The house itself is quite roomy and has plenty of space to spread out. We spent a lot of time in the hammock and the pool. The solar hot water for the house and the solar pump for the pool helped keep the electricity costs to a reasonable level. The beds were very comfortable and had a luxurious feel. The kitchen is adequately stocked with utensils, dishes and cookware. We especially liked the layout of the house and the natural light that filled the living area and bedrooms. It was very quiet and secure at night, and my children slept better there than they do in their own beds. We enjoyed getting to know the staff who work on the grounds, they were very friendly and trustworthy. The owner and local property manager were also very helpful from start to finish and made it a painless process. The rate is unbeatable. We found a lot of enjoyable activities in the surrounding area. As other reviewers have noted, the beach is absolutely gorgeous. Sand is fun to play in, and there are plenty of shells to find. We had a great time doing the canopy zipline, and exploring the large rocks and crashing waves in the ocean (you can see them on your drive to Jaco). We also traveled to Volcan arenal (dormant for the last year) and enjoyed the beauty and found a free hot spring there. Jaco (30 km) is definitely a bustling tourist town with great options if you're looking for something to do. Parrita (15 km) is a local farming town with decent shopping options and a little bit better prices. I would definitely recommend this to others.

“Amazing house, relaxing and tranquil setting,stress reliever.”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2011

Upon check-in of our house rental, Shannon greeted us with open arms and was very informative. It was awesome to get up every morning and walk upstairs to our private overlook to have cofee and listen to the birds, ocean and see monkeys in the trees. The private pool in our back yard was awesome and my wife and I couldn't get enough of it. Being in the back yard was like being in our own little retreat. We also had several massages upstairs in the overlook by a local, professional masseuse named Erika. It was the best massage we ever had and very reasonable prices. Can't wait to go back.

“Great place to enjoy peace and quiet”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2011

I stayed at this place a few years ago and haven't been back recently but I sure to miss it. I had a good time and back when I stayed the owner had the place painted brown and there was no pool so he has really made some improvements from what I can see in the new photos. I went alone after my divorce and need peace and quiet and got it. It was the best month I had post divorce. I would love to go back with the new wife and baby I have.

This house is great for it`s size ,cleaness, privacy , pool , and great beaches ! Wildlife all around , macaws , monkeys etc. Got everything you need for a great stay! Would rented it again !

“Excellent Time!”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2011

We love the location of this property! It's perfectly located between Jaco and Manuel antonio. Playa Bejuco is beautiful but the waves and rip tide are very strong so you have to be careful not to swim out too far. There are no life guards on duty on the public beaches in Costa Rica. The property has monkeys right behind it that we saw in the morning. You have to get up early to see them and you could see them in the trees from deck above. There were several sightings of Scarlet Macaws but they never stopped at the property. Looks like they had an agenda! My husband is a surfer and loved the surf. I really enjoyed the place a lot and the only place that tops this project is the Marriot Los Suenos in Playa Herradura. The Marriot is great but super expensive. If you go to this place be sure to visit Marriot for their excursions. Safety is one thing very important to me and my husband. Costa del Sol has a gated community with security guards and is fenced in but not like a secure camp or a prison. We felt very safe knowing there were nightly patrols in the project. All in all I have been to CR about 20 times over the past 10 years and have done the Vrbo and Flip Key thing and I have to say this place was only second to the Marriot which was about 4 times the price as Costa del Sol. Bring bug spray and sun lotion! Man there sure are a lot of bugs on the jungle tours and that sun on Bejuco is a sorcher at times. I know I am rambling but I told the owner I would write him a great review as I had a great time and I am not normally one to bother with reviews. Take care, Diana

“Awesome house!”

“Best Vacation Ever!”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2011

I stayed at this beautiful home last summer with my family. The location was spectacular; close to the ocean and to the main town, yet far enough away to enjoy our privacy. The beds were comfortable, and the interior design was just gorgeous.We loved the in-ground pool as well. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to rent a home in Costa Rica!

“Monkeys Galore!”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2011

This place was great. The private pool and upper deck was just perfect. I had a blast watching the monkeys every morning feeeding from the trees behind the river. The beach is very close by; just a 2 minute car ride and the views were amazing. I would recommend staying at this house. It was clean, the staff was friendly and I had a great time.
