We have stayed in Villa Woodbox for almost a month and a half. What a delight it was! The villa itself is extremely convenient, homey and well designed. It is absolutely perfect for extended family. The best thing about the villa is it's location. It is a bit far from Tamarindo (30 min drive) and we did not regret this a bit. Once or twice a week we traveled to Tamarindo to buy groceries as they have a bigger Automercado market stuffed with the familiar goods (They have everything you need there). Tamarindo has a slew of good restaurants, however we found that it was a bit hectic there. Villa Woodbox's location is off the beaten path and fits perfectly for those who want the best beach time as you can barely see anyone while swimming in the ocean. The villa is stuffed with everything you need, even for such extended stay. Special thanks to the management, Fabrice and Patie. They are the nicest and most accommodating people. It was such a pleasure to deal with them. They accommodated all of our requests, organized our trips and made us feel very welcomed there. The beach is just 5 min walk and you can encounter monkeys and iguanas just steps from the villa. The owner is extremely easy to deal with. Thank you, Michael , for sharing your wonderful villa with us. We fell in love with great country of Costa Rica! Pura Vida!
Our suggestion is to rent a car if you want to explore this wonderful country. Be aware of traffic fines ($ 600.00).

Woodbox is an incredible house and perfectly tailored for those seeking a quite stay in Costa Rica. It is less than a 5 minute walk down to the beach for strolling and taking in wonderful sunsets. The house does come with a few bikes, which makes getting to the small market very manageable with a 15 minute bike ride (for those who don't want to rent a car). Michael is extremely easy to communicate with and responds to all emails/inquires very quickly. And Fabrice, the house concierge, is extremely accommodating. The kitchen has every you need to cook your meals, as we did daily...and the gas grill outside is perfect. All the bedrooms have plenty of space with ceiling fans and wall mounted air-conditioners. And I must say that they beds themselves got comments from everyone, as being very, very comfortable. Thank you so much for opening your home to us for the week!
