Extraordinary villa on the beach!

  • 5 of 5
Brought our son and two other high school seniors here for Spring Break. If you are reading this review, I can honestly say, Look No Further! Awesome home, best location, top notch service from home owners, their daughter and all the staff. We were unsure of exactly what to expect when we arrived, but can not tell you how thrilled we were when we were greeted at the gate. The beautiful front porch looking out to the water is gorgeous. The house was perfect!! Four bathrooms, a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and air in the bedrooms. We ended up finding the grocery (with Greg's excellent directions) and cooked in for a number of meals. We had the beach almost to ourselves in the morning for our walks looking for shells and snorkeling in the tide pools. This was our second trip to Costa Rica. We wanted to be on the beach so the boys could swim, surf, etc at their leisure. They rented boards from the owners. We had them available all week, it was great! We were all able to swim multiple times a day. We brought hammocks and hung them in the trees right outside our front porch. Sunsets were breathtaking.
We were able to set up ALL our extra activities with Danielle, the owners daughter. My husband and I had massages on the deck (really nice). We took the boys on a tour that included zipline, tubing, rappelling and soaking in natural pools. We spent some time in Tamarindo for dinner and shopping, but all of us preferred our tropical paradise at Casa Del Mar.
As an extra, Greg and Gabriella sent us detailed maps and suggestions for tours, etc. They helped us get an amazing price on a car rental for the week. They have scored reliable, friendly and courteous staff that add so much to the week. We felt safe and secure. We want to say Thank you again and again!!

This was our first visit to Coast Rica, and I can't imagine doing it any other way. We rented this home & Casa Syl Mar next door, and it couldn't have been more perfect for our group. We were so well taken care of in every way, from all the wonderful staff down to the excellent massage! Being right down the beach from the turtle nesting, and Hotel Las Tortugas with its many ecotourism opportunities made it a dream come true! Wow.

Best on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of six adults - 3 couples in our 50's/60's - drove up to Casa Del Mar, not quite sure which house was ours for the week. Then, we saw Nicho, who was standing outside, waiting to wave us in. We parked in a lovely parking area, and he guided us toward the ocean front of the house. It could not be more lovely. The large covered front patio/porch gave us shade and framed the beautiful ocean view. And walking into the house, we were surprised by the height of the ceiling and loft area. The open living space included a fully furnished kitchen where you could prepare your snacks or dinner as you looked through the huge glass front of the house, out to the beach and water. We were all so excited to move in and start the fun. Each couple in our group had a large bedroom with a private bath.

In planning our trip, I had spoken with Greg and Gabriela several times. I had them set up our rental car, which worked out great. And they also set up a couple of other terrific adventure trips. We had a great experience on the Palo Verde River trip. And our Sunset Sailing Cruise was perfect. Having Greg, Gabriela and their daughter Daniela set up these things, made for easy, fun, safe adventure.

The houses perfect location on Playa Grande provided for the best boogie boarding we have ever experienced. We rented 2 of them for the week, and passed them back and forth. They were used hours every day.

I must comment on Miriam and Nicho. This husband and wife team were the caretakers of the property and us. They handled all of our questions promptly, either directly themselves, or via a quick phone call to Greg and Gabriella who were always reachable. The house was kept spotless - the dishes were washed daily, and our laundry was done half-way through the week. We felt spoiled.

We had been to Costa Rica three times previously, and to Playa Grande just a couple of years earlier, but this was our first stay with Casa Del Mar. We all would highly recommend it, as we felt this was one of our very best vacations ever. We are already thinking down the road to our next Costa Rica trip, which will center around Playa Grande and Casa Del Mar.

8 river brats arrive at casa del mar

  • 5 of 5
There was only 8 of us on this trip, me the one who believes if it sounds to good to be true, well it is, but i sent a check, and then another, and I had Gabriela reserve me 2 cars at 'U Save Liberia' car agency. Address to house, Casa Del mar, longitude by latitude. Well some body picked us up at the airport, good thing because 20 other guys offered, took us to rental agency, got an old beater van that held 8, awesome, and away we traveled, with some other directions from Greg and Gabriella that were absolutely perfect, thank you, my kind of directions, for a man without a smart phone. We found the home at night, no problem, Nicho and Merriam were waiting for us. The home is absolutely perfect, even though your never in the home but to sleep, the outdoor patio and the beach is where we hang. From my master bed I only have to lift my head up to see 8 lounge chairs set up under " THE 4 COCOA PALMS AND 2 ALMOND TREES" heaven, everyday. I'm really hard to please, the first day I was not so sure if this is good enough, as the week went on it became the most amazing adventure, everything about this house, the host Greg and Gabriela, the care takers, Nicho and Merriam, location very perfect not touristy, this is July and we are ready to go back for Christmas. As other reviews wrote, you really can spend your whole vacation right at the house on the beach, it is playa grande 'big beach' and big, beautiful, and all yours besides a few tourist and a few locals. A short drive to Tamarindo can't hurt, fun drive very busy , bicycles, horses, cows,and alot of walkers, very rurual, And if you do a sunset cruise choose the pirate ship, Antares, so non commercial, thank you Daniella, it felt like our own personal sail boat, that will be a great memory. So we thank all of you at Casa Del Mar for a very unforgettable trip, and we hope we were'nt to much problem, and hope u will except us back. PS the next day U SAVE LIBERIA brought us a brand new van, How did they know where we live? Longitude- latitude We are the River Brats

Excellent Home on the Sand

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from Casa Del Mar where we stayed with another couple and their teen daughter. The house was excellent! Greg met us at the gate and gave us a tour of the home, he was very accommodating. The house was set up nicely for our use, well appointed kitchen that we cooked several meals out of, the grill worked fantastic! Bedrooms are great for sleeping with the air conditioners and separate baths. The front patio was my favorite spot to hang out, great breeze off the ocean and a beautiful view. The staff did a wonderful job with our needs, kept the house spotless and did laundry for us a couple of times (no chores when we got back home!). We walked down to Rip Jacks a couple of times to eat and drink. We also walked out to the black sand beach and did some snorkeling a couple of times. I really enjoyed that! Just a really nice place to stay.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had eight people in our party so we used the three bedroom house and the one bedroom apartment. The house and the apartment were very clean and extremely well maintained and all of the furnishing were very nice. The staff that provided security and housekeeping services were very friendly, did a great job, and were enjoyable to be around.

Greg, the owner, was very accommodating and pleasant. He booked a river tour for us that we really enjoyed and whenever we needed anything he was right there to help and give advice. Every person in our group commented about how much they liked the Greg and his staff.

Having the house next to such a wonderful beach was the best part. We could swim, boogy board, and comb the beach right in front of the house. We also enjoyed laying around on the lounges that the staff placed on the beach under the palm trees every day.

This is our third year of spending a week in the Playa Grande area but this was our first year to stay at the Casa Del Mar Beach Front Home. This year was by far our favorite year mostly because of the superb condition of the home and its spectacular location. I can't wait to come back again next year and will definitely stay at Cosa Del Mar.
