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.

Just returned from Playa Grande Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Were the listing photos accurate in representing this listing? No, it was a hundred times nicer! We just returned from our one week stay at Casa Del Mar (not nearly long enough)
Six people in my group including my husband who was celebrating his 65th birthday fell in love with this property, Playa Grande, Costa Rica.
Everything that the owners describe about the listing is accurate and more. Never have I experienced such helpful hosts and staff.
Of course I would recommend this property to anyone, but please do not take my week.
We will definitely return.
The Great Waltinis at Hotel Bula Bula is a must, Rip Jacks for drinks was so much fun.
I will be dreaming about this place until my next visit.

Peaceful Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent Thanksgiving week at Case Del Mar and felt so welcome from the moment we arrived...actually, from the moment we booked the home. The owners, Greg and Gabriela, really have thought of everything that could make their guests feel well taken care of. The property caretakers, Miriam and Nicho, are somehow there when you need them and yet invisible...I don't know how they do it. The location of the home is absolutely amazing...I can't imagine a more beautiful beach in Costa Rica and the home is very clean and comfortable and, as an added bonus, not one big Costa Rican bug anywhere.

The beach was completely ours...there were days when there wasn't another person within sight. We all loved boogie boarding and searching for the sand critters...crabs, sea slugs, sand dollars are everywhere. We spent a day at the recommended Zip Line Canopy Tour (zip line, rock climb (new), river tubing and horseback riding) which was an amazing day and deal, Crocodile Tour (best food of our trip), and ATV riding (the kids' favorite). Gabriela set all the excursions for us, which was very helpful. If I had to change anything about our trip, I would spend more time on the beach and less time driving around. Next time we go back, we will do just that! Thanks for such an amazing stay!

Paradise Found in Playa Grande

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the joy of returning to our favorite beach in Costa Rica for two weeks this spring. This house was exactly what we were looking for and our stay was filled with great sun, beach walks, dining alfresco on the covered patio, glorious sunsets and the best staff we have come to know in our travels.
Casa Del Mar could comfortably house six, but it felt cozy and welcoming for the two of us. Centrally located on the gorgeous Playa Grande beach it affords the visitor sweeping views up both sides of the nearly deserted beach while the surf is just a few feet beyond the charming front sitting area and private yard. Just beyond the gate are several palm trees and a couple of shade trees where we could stretch out during the mornings or especially later in the day when some absolutely spectacular sunsets made for our favorite time of day. Most days we could count on a group of small parrots or lorries flying in to perch in the palm trees and they arrived at the perfect time, as if they came to watch the sunsets with us! Brightly colored crabs, birds and flowers are daily perks to being a visitor to this lovely home.
The owners of this home provide detailed information and tips about the surrounding area. The on site staff Miriam and Niccho were unbelievably kind and accomodating. They provide security and hands on help with whatever you need to manage your stay. Miriam and the young housekeeper together kept the house spotless and did our laundry daily so we never were at a loss for clean clothes, towels or linens. We enjoyed cooking most meals at home and were able to get fabulous fresh shrimp and fish delivered to the house through Miriam's connections with a local vendor. The house has a barbeque grill which Niccho kept spotless, and there was also access to boogie boards etc. if you wanted to tackle the surf. We loved speaking with the staff and learning more about the area and life in Costa Rica. Somehow we found a way despite our language differences to make a connection and share many laughs over our stay.
The area is a nice blend of tranquil natural beauty, surfing cool and tropical adventure. The town of Tamarindo is not far away for those times when we felt like we wanted a more touristy feel for dining or shopping. Locally there are a couple of good restaurants and bars to sample - The RipJack restaurant and Bula Bula were favorites for drinks and lunch/brunch too.
For us this house and staff were paradise found!
