Habitat Magico - Highly Rated Ocean View Villa in a Private Jungle-like Setting!

Adults-only vacation home in Coco with spa tub
HABITAT MAGICO looks forward to welcoming you back, as Costa Rica lifts restrictions. The name of our house has proven to be a magical habitat for guests over the last 14 years with 2 guest books of comments along with numerous e-mails from happy guests sharing their experiences and adventures!! The villa is close to all the conveniences of Coco, but sitting on the hillside - it provides total 'SERENITY' from the hustle and bustle of town - just a 4 minute drive up the hill. For fitness minded individuals - just a 20 minute walk! We renovated this 2-story, Mediterranean style house with views of the Pacific Ocean in mind when sitting in the living room upstairs and enjoying some TV with amazing views in air-conditioned comfort. I hope the PHOTOS will do justice. The covered terrace off the kitchen is where you WANT to have your morning coffee and listen to the birds and nature come to life. In fact, this is where you wish to spend your outdoor time. The Master bedroom (with oceanview) connects to the living area thru french doors. Guest bedroom downstairs has a romantic queen canopy bed. Suitable for 1 or 2 couples. Only a 25 minute drive from Liberia Airport and a 4 minute drive to the town of Playa del Coco and it's beaches, numerous restaurants, shops, pharmacies, outdoor markets, a bank, ATM & five supermarkets. The villa is fully furnished with comforts of home, including A/C in each room, several ceiling fans, 42' plasma TV, wireless internet, stereo, fridge, oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, dishes, glassware, cutlery, towels. Laundry room, outdoor (jungle) plunge pool for cooling off, patio furniture, 2 chaise lounges.

Escaping Winter
We were 2 couples who thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was very spacious including the covered porch so we were not crowding one another. It was very quiet and although we were in a "compound" with 3 or 4 other homes we had the utmost privacy. Nuria, the host, was very helpful and immediately had one of the air conditioners replaced which had stopped funtioning. Therre were air conditioners in each room; a very complete kitchen and a laundry area which we used frequently. Shopping in Coco was excellent with a very upscale grocery store. Banking was just next to the store. We would highly recommend this retreat to anyone. Gerald McLarty

Great week
Enjoyed our stay. Local team were great, very attentive. House was well laid out for two couple with two nice areas for socializing one inside one outside. A 40 min walk to the beach makes a car a must.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing place
Habitat Magico is great. It is nestled among swaying palms on a hill with incredible views of the ocean. The photos are accurate! The downstairs patio is a great place to eat, the upstairs balcony is great for sunbathing or a morning coffee. The jacuzzi is surrounded by a huge variety of plants. If you are looking for somewhere to either just relax and enjoy some quiet time, or a Homebase to explore the surrounding area this is the place. We stayed for a week with our toddler and had an incredible time. More great features of the place: - well equipped kitchen with all the pots, pans, Tupperware, appliances, etc. you need to cook for a family - stereo with great sound and speakers upstairs and downstairs - comfortable couches in the living room, great for relaxing and enjoying the view - comfortable beds - beautiful wood furniture in every room - great AC system, with separate units in every room. The place can get as cool as you need it - the owner, property manager and groundskeeper all incredibly helpful and friendly - the location is quiet. There are 4 other villas in the complex, all of which were quiet during our stay, but means you aren't isolated and it feels safe. - alarm system which you can set when you leave and when you are home - the views and the sound of the leaves rustling in the wind. Overall 10/10.

Great location and a beautiful atmosphere
I stayed here for a week in May and couldn’t have been happier with the accommodations. The owners provide A TON of information and recommendations on the area, and meeting with and checking in with Nuria upon arrival was a very simple process. I didn’t need anything during my stay, but Nuria is very easy to reach should the need arise. The house is in a great location. Only about 5 minutes from town, but far enough away to where you feel at one with the nature that surrounds you. If I have any suggestion at all, it would be to possibly add a table (preferably with a collapsible umbrella) to the upper patio. There are a couple of chairs, but no table or cover. I got quite a bit of rain while I was there, so I wasn’t able to enjoy the upper patio views as much as I was hoping to. But being relegated to the downstairs patio wasn’t a bad compromise as I quickly made friends with the three cats and two raccoons that visited daily. There was plenty of hot water, and several AC units that worked wonderfully (two down, two up). The bed upstairs was very firm, but it was fine for me for just a week, and was easily offset by the beautiful views offered from the living room and both patios. If I make it back to the Playas Del Coco area again, I would strongly consider staying at Habitat Magico again.

Great Place with Great View
Very homey place that felt like our own. AC worked great, internet was fast enough to stream movies, and the view is spectacular. The upstairs master bedroom mattress was really good, my wife has a bad back and it didn't bother her at all. Water pressure was good and the hot water was plentiful. The outdoor 'pool' was so nice for cooling off. One of the little games we played was trying to figure out what all the light switches did. There are so many. My wife also liked the cats that showed up. I think others fed them as there was cat-food in the house, so we continued the tradition. You cannot be disappointed staying here. If I had a negative, it's that you must have a car as walking on the steep roads isn't really practical and there isn't anything in the neighborhood to walk to. Leila, the owner, sent us a lot of information for our stay including activities guides. We used one of her recommendations, the sunset cruise, it was great. We meet Nuria easily to get the keys and Roger surprised us the first day as he cleans up around the outside early every day. He was very nice. Overall it was a fantastic stay at a fantastic place with fantastic staff.
