Tip # 1: Make sure when planning your vacation that your villa rental property is close to beaches and pools but not so close that you’ll be burdened by busy, crowded and noisy public areas. This will guarantee for quality time with those with you and provides a pleasant relief from typical ‘back-home’ stress and busy areas.
Service: A given right to vacationing is not having to cook, clean or grocery shopping – any other type of shopping is a right. This time is for relaxation, playing some tennis, enjoying your sun-deck, sitting by your private pool, or simply taking in the beautiful sights and sounds.
Tip # 2: When searching for a rental, and to assure your vacation is everything you’re hoping, look for villas that include before-arrival grocery stocking, and full service/full-time chef and housekeeper and you will be sure that you are not stuck doing the same chores you’d normally being doing at home.
No Agenda: How many times a week do you have to be somewhere and at a certain time? Taking the kids to school, getting to work, going to the gym, the list goes on forever.
Tip # 3: Look for a villa rental resort that does not have ‘set-hours’ for activities or transportation so that you may enjoy your vacation at your personal pace without rushing to meet a group for a tour or transportation.
Views: You see the same streets, sidewalks, and terrain every day, and for many, you don’t see any wildlife. Vacationing is about seeing new and exciting things, people and places and more so in Costa Rica.
Tip # 4: Investigate villas that offer magnificent ocean and volcano views, surrounded safely by distinctive wildlife. The more jaw-dropping sights seen during your vacation, the more memories gained for a lifetime and an important point to keep in mind when looking for the perfect villa rental.
Personalization: Everyone receives the same service at restaurants, gas stations, hotels, and everywhere in-between. When on vacation we all enjoy at least a little special treatment and for most, we want a lot.
Tip # 5: Seek out rental villas that provide for complete pampering and attend to each guest’s specific preferences. Attention to detail is important from diet and beverages, to adventure and sightseeing, to enjoying one’s privacy. Personalization is about you and your travel companions receiving customized leisure time to enjoy your vacation to the fullest.
Culture: Encountering a new culture is always enjoyable and certainly there is no better time to do this than on vacation in Costa Rica.
