Great house in Negra

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us. The pool and outdoor area is beautiful and relaxing. The walk to the beach is so close and easy. The 3rd level balcony has amazing ocean views to check Negra. It was a great house for our family of 4 and 3 other guests. They have a TON of movies for the kids to watch. The location is great for going to Negra or Avellanas. We will definitely be staying there again.

Great Property Right by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

This house was a terrific location for our family vacation. The house was able to accommodate the five of us easily. We enjoyed having the ability to check out the surf from the 3rd floor deck and cooling off at the pool after a long day at the beach. The path to the beach puts you in the water 5 minutes after you walk out the front door. For those interested in nature we enjoyed the resident iguana, had a sea turtle visit us in the surf, and on our last day a whole crew of howler monkeys were right down the road.

In the interest of full disclosure the reason why you are able to enjoy so much nature is that the surrounding Playa Negra is not developed which is what we were looking for. However, there are plenty of nearby restaurants (Playa Negra Cafe was great) and the house included all you need to cook great meals (make sure to take advantage of the Friday fresh fish delivery). Also, Tamarindo and Playa Flamingo are within 30-45 minutes if you want more developed tourist areas.

Last but not least Judy was terrific. She was extremely responsive and available when we needed her. All in all we had a great vacation and will definitely look to stay here again next time we can get to Costa Rica!

Casa amplia y cómoda!

  • 5 of 5

Fuimos 7 adultos y una niña pequeña y disfrutamos mucho. La casa es muy grande y cómoda con todo lo necesario además de la piscina privada. Super punto a favor de que el acceso a la playa esté tan cerca. El a/c está solamente en los dormitorios, no en toda la casa, para algunas personas es importante. Judy excelente administradora, siempre estuvo en contacto conmigo!

Beautiful home near the beach

  • 5 of 5

Awesome home! Out of the way as we like it, but within walking distance of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Awesome surfing, as we watched. Home was spanish style with high ceilings, fans and very open. Very modern kitchen and appliances. Clean and great cleaning staff. It was just my wife and I and our 7th trip to CR, first time at this home. This was our favorite. Pool was nice, clean and had a great seating area and the most comfortabe chaise lounges I ever laid on. AC in the bedroom made it easy to sleep. The balconies were amazing. Easy to watch a beautiful sunset every night for crows nest on third level, or even the bedroom balcony. Walking distance on the beach to a nice bar/restaurant. The property manager, Judy, is the best. Easy to get a hold of and very helpful. Loved this home!! Our trip was fabulous.

Magical Memories Made Here

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for 7 weeks. The location is amazing. Right next to the ocean and very secluded (which is what we were looking for). Judy stocked the fridge for us since we were arriving late and the market is a 40 minute taxi drive. We chose not to have a car while we were here which was hard in the beginning because I couldn't imagine what we would do here for so long! However after unwinding for a week we got into the rhythm of life here. My 8 year old son took surf lessons from Javiere at Pargos Adventures every single day. I walked a short walk along the beach to the Playa Negra hotel for a morning yoga class 3 times a week and we cooked, swam in the pool, relaxed in the hammock and had amazing family time. There are a couple of good places to walk to to eat but we only did that a handful of times. The local taxi driver took us to Tamarindo if we needed something (even got us to the doctor once when my daughter was sick) and Judy was always there if we needed anything. There is a skate park that we went to couple of times - the town doesn't have much but it has a skate park. :) we did go on a couple of excursions through different companies and they picked us up at the house so that was easy.

The house itself is beautiful and comfortable. The air conditioning worked very well in the bedrooms so we always slept well. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and we used the roof top grill all the time. The lightning storms and sunsets were amazing to watch from the roof top lookout. The monkeys and iguanas came around to check us out and the crabs were fun for our kids to chase.

You couldn't ask for a better beach. Sandy beach is perfect for family swims and play time and was never crowded. My son and husband could walk to 3 different surf spots.

What else can I say that I would have wanted to know before I got there? The house has a gate and the complex is gated but not guarded so really anyone can still walk in from the beach or the road. The internet worked well most of the time. I got used to sharing my space with the bugs and lizards but never got used to the scorpions. I was a wimp in that department but that being said we never got stung.

It was wonderful having the house cleaned twice a week.

Don't hesitate to stay here if you are looking for peace and beauty. The small town, the people, the magical surroundings....its all here.
