About Kathy Dillaha

We came to Playas del Coco on a 5 week vacation in early 2013 and fell in love with the country, the people, and the whole Pura Vida vibe. We left with a host of new friends, a new zest for life, and a building lot! We returned home to Nashville, TN and went to work making it happen. Seven months later we returned...and never looked back. We proceeded to build our dream home while getting more familiar with this amazing country, and now we would like to share it with you. Just beware of that Pura Vida bug. If it bites you, you may never leave.

Kathy Dillaha purchased this house in 2014

We spent 10 days in this amazing house which was not nearly enough time. Kathy and Darrell went above and beyond and were always available to help us with any questions. Do not hesitate to book this house, you will not be disappointed. We be returning! Pura Vida!!

Beautiful Villa in an Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week, which wasn't nearly enough! Kathy and Darrell were so helpful and kind, helping make it easier for our family of five (children ages 8 - 13) to relax and truly be on vacation. All of Kathy's recommendations were awesome for activities and places to go. Our children had a blast in the pool , playing pool by the pool and at the huge pool at the clubhouse. The villa is beautiful, the pictures simply don't do it justice. We will most certainly be back!

Sweet in Coco Beach

  • 5 of 5

Kathy and Darrell are outstanding hosts. The home is first rate. Comfortable, good layout, huge outdoor living space and A/C throughout the house (which is a huge plus for the humid nights). Kathy found us an exceptions boat, captain and first mate (Tom and James) for a private beach hopping tour for a full day. Truley outstanding, and for us, a highlight of our trip. She also arrange for pool side massages for 5 in our group. Very good rates and very good service. The view from the outdoor living space does not do the photo's justice; as its quite spectacular. Being a 'gated commuity' the private beach club and additional private clubhouse were great to visit; no additional charge. I must admit, it was hard to leave the home as the infinity pool and view were totally inviting. If you decide to Zip Line or white water raft, Kathy's recommendation for Rio Perdido was well worth the 1 and 1/2 hour drive (the last 4 KM are tough!) If we ever find ourselves in Coco again; Kathy and Darrell will be our first call for private home lodging. Thank you very much Kathy and Darrell; you were a huge part in making our first visit to Costa Rica a very enjoyable one. Pura Vida!!!

Great house and great owners

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about Kathy and Darrell and their house. Kathy was quick to respond to all of our questions and then some. Thanks to her, I found out my passport was going to be a problem since I only had 4 months left on it. I was able to get a new one in time for the trip, but would have never realized it was a problem myself if she hadn't of mentioned it. We met Kathy and Darrell in town and they spent time showing us around so we would know where the grocery store was, good restaurants, good beaches, fruit stands, fresh fish place, fitness center, and even where to look out for monkeys. Then we went to their beautiful house. It is amazing. There is a beautiful view along with everything you could want inside the house. We loved the outdoor pool table especially. The whole week we kept in touch with Kathy asking questions and she always gave us great information. We couldn't have asked for more from an owner or a better place to stay!

We have just left this amazing property ! It is even better in real life than the photos! We found it so hard to tear ourselves away from this house. The view and pool are breathtaking ! The inside is just gorgeous and huge! To be honest hubby and I are both travelers and have lived all over the world, this house by far is the nicest we have stayed in! We sunbathed, swam, read and watch the view in the day and night it was just magical ! The owners Kathy & Darrell went above and beyond to do what they could to make our stay amazing from the emails before we arrived to helping us upon arrival ! Kathy booked a couples massage for us around the pool one day and it was the best I ever had! A private chef can be ordered too but we didn't get a chance to try that this time . After a week of magic in this superb home our last night arrived . To our dismay we had a flat battery in our car . One quick text to the owners , they came to help us and literally devoted their time to making our night memorable . I really enjoyed getting to meet the owners and I could not imagine meeting better people anywhere, I will remain in touch and will be back as I now consider them new friends who I will know for a long time! Thank you, thank you , thank you for a wonderful time meeting you and opening your house to us! Future renters , DO NOT HESITATE TO BOOK THIS HOME AND HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIVES! Our favourite place to eat was father roosters get there for the sunset ! In the words of the owner Darrell with his super smile, PURA VIDA!!!
