Relaxing, Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I went back down to visit one of our favorite countries, Costa Rica for a quick get away and birthday celebration. We have visited several times before staying in some of the many nice resorts, this time we wanted we wanted something different and away from all the other tourists....what a pleasant surprise! The house was everything as advertised, but even more charming in person. The layout, amenities, appliances, and AC were all in tip top shape. The pool was used everyday in the afternoons after getting back from morning activities. It was also in great shape, partly to do with Mike usually coming over in the early mornings ( between 5:00 and 6:00 a.m. ) to clean the pool and outdoor facilities.
Mike is a really nice person and will help you with guides to near by restaurants and surrounding activities. He is very knowledgeable and knows the area very well.The beach is awesome , but is primarily used for surfing and the leatherback turtles nesting grounds. It is not a very friendly swimming beach, but that is made up for by the serenity and beauty of the beach. I will just guess that from the estuary ( National Las Baulas Marine Park ) to the other end of the beach is probably 1 mile in length. The majority of the days we only saw a handful of people walking and collecting sea shells.
The flora and fauna surrounding the residence is wonderful, with plenty of birds, squirrels, land crabs, etc frequenting the property. There was even a small troop of howler monkeys in the near by trees.
The drive from the airport is not bad with really good paved roads, except for the last 2 KM which is a very bumpy dirt road. That is really the only thing I can say negative.
We had a wonderful time and would gladly recommend this place to our friends.

Excellant Vacation

  • 5 of 5
If you are thinking about renting this home, this is an excellant choice. My 18 year old daighter and I stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time. The home is very nice and so close to Playa Grande Beach - one of the worlds best. Although there is not a lot to do in the immediate area, however, Tamarindo is close by if you want to visit and or need some different dining choices. Our big decision each day was beach or pool? The pool is fabulous and I would highly recommend this property. Michale teh owner was extremly helpful before and during our visit.

Excellent Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 2 couples, who stayed here for 12 days. We were very happy with the house and pool. The house came with everything you need to be comfortable. Washer and dryer was a bonus to have. Mike the owner was excellent, he came by on a daily basis to clean the pool and yard. He would come early in the morning so he would not disturb us, most mornings we were up so we would sit around and chat. The house is in an excellent location with lots to do within walking distance. Was able to walk down the beach and take a water taxi across the estuary for a dollar each. Tamarindo was on the other side, great shopping and good places for lunch. Water taxi owner (Christian) took us on tour of the estuary, saw Crocodiles, howler monkeys, a number of different types of birds, we also did a tour with him to see the turtles and a fishing trip. These trips were all done without the use of a vehicle. Within the gated community there are a few restaurants and a grocery store which is well stocked. We did have a vehicle but as mentioned we did a lot without using the vehicles.

We had the most amazing trip staying here. The house was the perfect size for our family of three. The house pours in natural light, huge bedrooms, great bathrooms and an absolutely amazing pool. The beach is a very quick walk and we were able to walk to two different restaurants and the local store. Mike made our vacation incredibly special and we felt like we were staying at a best friends house. We could not have imagined a better place to stay!

Gorgeous beach, darling house!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and two young children just spent a quick few days here. While we were at first a little disappointed to not be able to see the ocean from the house, when we walked down the street to the beach, we were thrilled to find one of the best beaches in the world. Small waves for the kids to play in at the front, and then the larger waves for surfers in the beach at the back. Lots of lovely shells to find, and not crowded.
The home fit our needs perfectly, and was full of nice art and quaint little details. We cooked some delicious meals, and found the local mini-mart down the street was well-supplied. The owners were also very responsive to our needs, and very kind.

Classy, Comfortable and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5
Cozy and clean property has it all..2 master bedrooms, Wi-Fi and TV, kitchen conveniences, laundry, large outdoor covered patio within lush tropical greenery overlooking the private pool. We appreciated the quiet, private residential community, and the home is just steps to the beach (listen to the waves) and community conveniences (restaurants, bar, market). Stroll a bit on quiet Playa Grande beach then take a short water taxi ride across the estuary to Tamarindo, a quaint and active little town. There we found incredible restaurants beachside, colorful shopping district, and all sorts of water activities (kayaking, ocean cruises, scuba diving, surfing, and boat tours up the estuary with many wildlife sightings). The local owner, Mike, is extremely helpful with information about a variety of nearby communities and activities if you're interested in staying busy. Our stay here was incredible and we'd highly recommend this little Pacific coast getaway!
