Eco Beach House with Pool in Gated Beachfront Community

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 20, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 to 10)

Located just a few steps from the world famous Playa Negra beach and surf break, Casa Ganesha beach house lies in an oasis of tranquility surrounded by lush tropical nature and offers everything you could want from life in the tropics. We have done everything to make this house as charming and comfortable as possible, exotic furniture, tasteful interior decorations and modern amenities, so it feels like a real home and not just another vacation rental.

Casa Ganesha is spread over two levels and is composed of two units connected by a patio. It is ideal for 8 to 10 people although it is also possible to rent just one unit for a party of up to 4 people. Several patios equipped with hammocks and lawn chairs allow you to select the perfect spot with regard to ocean view, breeze or shade. The generously sized swimming pool remains cool all year long and is perfect for swimming or cooling down at all times of the day.

All 3 lower floor bedrooms are provided with air conditionning and ceiling fans while the upper floor suite is generously ventilated by the natural breeze and ceiling fans. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas stove, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and all ustensils to prepare meals. However, should you feel lazy, the nearest restaurant is just a 2-minute walk from the house.

Upon arrival, you will be taken in charge by Judy who will organize the maid service (twice a week at no charge) and other activities of interest for you. She will be at your disposal during your stay at Casa Ganesha, helping you with all practical details to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable.

Fantastic house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 5 others recently rented this house for 5 nights. We loved every minute of it. The house is very private, yet it is amongst other large houses (mostly vacation homes) and near Hotel Playa Negra which is convenient as it has a nice restaurant that we frequented almost daily. During our stay we saw monkeys, iguanas, lots of geckos, a mexican harry porcupine, a few toads and lots of horses (all right on the property). The beach is very close, and we were often the only ones on it, besides a few surfers.
The only issue we had was the fridge was not working properly (wouldn't always stay cold), however the property manager Judy was aware prior to our arrival so there was another small fridge that we could use for perishable items.

I would definitely recommend this property, especially for large groups. It is perfect for 3 couples and a few singles.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments. The fridge problem has been fixed since then. Hope to have you there again in the future.

Exotic, remote and perfectly equipped house in Playa Negra

  • 5 of 5
Casa Ganesha is a perfect selection, especially if you are traveling with another couple or with children. The house is perfectly situated, a short walk to the hotel grounds or to the beach. The entire community is guarded 24/7 and seems perfectly safe. Most bedrooms are air conditioned, but we chose to use the one without air conditioning. Leaving open the shuttered windows allowed for the majestic ocean sounds and warm but not oppressive winds to filter in.

The grounds are well maintained. The kitchen has all of the basic needs in place. The frequent house cleaner is pleasant and thorough. The local agent for the home, Judy, is willing to assist with any problems and makes great recommendations for things to do, places to go, excellent restaurants, etc.

Wonderfully varied birds sing and flit around the property. One day a monkey walked across the lot, climbed a tree and went tree to tree along the side of the house. Geckos, iguanas abound.

Walk the beach at morning to see the beach-side fishermen or to watch the ever present surfers. Have a morning coffee at the Hotel restaurant. Be sure to return to see the green flash when the sun sets. Order the ceviche - maybe the best we had in Costa Rica. The restaurant will run a tab for the duration of your stay so you can walk around the grounds with no wallet needed.

Rent this wonderful teak home with confidence and receive well more than your money's worth in exchange. The owner is an excellent communicator and will accommodate whatever needs you may have.

A most elegant and relaxing location to experience pura vida.

Casa Ganesha, we will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5
Ganesha...Remover of Obstacles...we certainly enjoyed our Stay at Casa Ganesha earlier this January 2014. The Casa lived up to our expectations!!! Perfect for our family of adults, each room is very private so you can have down time if need be. Our stay was relaxing, and very comfortable, the Owners have paid special attention to the finer details... décor, bedding & and the necessities to whip up a delicious meal with local fresh produce and the Mahi Mahi that was caught earlier that day!! The property is situated in a prime location just a few minutes walk from a spectacular beach, Playa Negra prefect for long morning walks, beach combers, learning to surf or the avid surfer & watching the sun set.
It's very important for us when picking a Casa to rent that its situated in a quieter area, (not too touristy) but still has a few of the amenities that make a holiday pleasurable... groceries, and great restaurants aren't to far away, with wonderful selections at both.
We will definitely return in the near future!!
Thank you Ganesha for a most wonderful tropical paradise vacation:)

Amazing vacation at Casa Ganesha

  • 5 of 5
We just completed an amazing vacation with our adult children. I was looking for a relaxing slow break while my young adult children (26 -30) wanted to explore as many activities as possible. I was looking for a beautiful comfortable home and not a USA all in one resort. The house was beautiful, functional and well maintained. The large porch allowed for our family to spend evenings together while listening to the roaring ocean. The floor plan is well suited for a large family and gives everyone a place to escape when needed. Our pool was cleaned daily and the housekeeping was greatly appreciated.

The guys took surfing lessons; the girls went to yoga classes as well as boarding on one of the local rivers; we rode horses on the beach and took a day trip to one of the rainforest.

We always felt safe at the house and Judy was more than helpful. An added benefit is being next door to Hotel Playa Negra where the food was always wonderful as well as a perfect place to watch the breath taking waves, surfers and sunsets. We found many wonderful restaurants in the area and are already planning another trip back.

Although certainly a place to disconnect, we found this home to be in a great area where we all found something wonderful to engage in from walking the beach to deep sea fishing and enjoying the catch with family and friends at this beautiful home.

Perfect beautiful unique beach house to relax

  • 5 of 5
Casa Ganesha is a beautiful unique beach house that has an incredible open architectural design perfectly suited for relaxation and sharing with family/friends. The owners, Serge and Michele, go the extra mile to make sure that the rental process is very smooth and clear; and the house manager, Judy, was extremely helpful during our stay.
Casa Ganesha’s unique architectural design offers multiple environments separated from each other: the shaded pool at the back side is perfect for afternoons – it includes an open shower to remove the sand from the beach, the rooms are unique and separate from each other – and each of them have their own full bathrooms – which is perfect for privacy, the kitchen is upstairs with an open design that connects into the open living room & dining room – in the mornings and at dusk you can hear the howler monkeys around the house, there is another open shower downstairs for when you come walking from the beach, and also the house has a half-bath upstairs.
In terms of security, Casa Ganesha is very safe – it is situated inside the Hotel Playa Negra complex, so there are guards during the day and night, and the three rooms have security safes big enough to store laptops!
At Playa Negra you can do horseback riding, surf, swim, yoga, massages, and you can walk the beach and play at the tidal pools at low tides! Playa Negra is a great beach for surfers, but also for swimmers – at the Sandy Beach just walking distance from Casa Ganesha!
We were a party of 10 (2 families with 2 kids each, and a couple), and we had a great time at Casa Ganesha, we would love to go back tomorrow!!!
We strongly recommend this house – it is the best house in Playa Negra!

Casa Ganesha

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at Casa Ganesha for two weeks, renting half the house. The house is beautiful, and would easily accommodate two families. The owner was easy to connect with and helpful in setting us up. Judy, the woman in charge of the property was an excellent resource and very friendly. Every other day a woman showed up and cleaned the bedding and the house, which was great since the sand makes a mess quickly. We spent most of our time on the fabulous deck, which is like a fancy lounge. We also enjoyed the pool, which is lightly shaded in the afternoon, which makes for a welcome break from the strong sun. There is not a lot of action at Playa Negra, which was perfect for our busy family: it's an ideal place to unwind. The Hotel right down the road is a great place to enjoy a drink at sunset, while watching the surfers. We took a few day trips, and that was fun, but ultimately we just wanted to chill out on the beach near our house. Last but not least, the weather was perfect every day, although be warned, the wind at night is something to behold!
