Our family has enjoyed staying at Villa of the Rock for oven ten years now. This is the little hidden gem in all of Costa Rica. Very private and peaceful, one feels like this is the perfect place to be! The surfing is incredible...just seconds away from your porch and the sunsets are just awesome. Alan and Kathy are nice folks who make you feel right at home.
