Why The Owner chose Playa Grande

Superior Vacation Villa

  • 5 of 5

Casa Kalumina is the best vacation home we have ever stayed in. The kitchen is well equipped with a full sized fridge and gas stove. The AC in every bedroom works! The pool is perfect for cooling off after heating up on the playa which is a pleasant 5 minute walk. The outdoor screened in deck with a gas BBQ is a bonus. It's clean, comfortable and spacious. Loads of room for the eight of us. Lots of markets and restaurants close by.

Christmas Getaway (2nd visit to Casa Kalumina)

  • 5 of 5

Second time here at this wonderful house. Previously visited in January 2010 and like the area so much, came back for Christmas 2016. Shawna & Jorge both were very helpful and made every effort to make is feel at home (as did Alyssa did in 2010). Beach is very close and the corner store around the corner is now a Wilmart grocery. The home is perfectly suited for large families. While there we did a sunset sail out of Playa Flamingo and some of the party went on a canopy tour. Mostly we just enjoyed the beach and the head high waves that we just love in the area. We especially love the outdoor kitchen and entertaining space it offers. We had other family staying also in Palm Beach Estates which was convenient for all to visit.

We ate Christmas dinner at the Hotel Bula Bula and several other times visited Hotel Cantarana for their Tapas Thursday and breakfast. Prices there were very reasonable and food excellent. This area has so very much to offer everyone from adventure to just relaxing. Highly recommend this house for groups of 8 or more.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples and 2 young kids. Had a great week in Playa Grande. Shawna and Jorge were extremely helpful. The house was beautiful and well-equipped. Only wish that there were some beach chairs and a portable umbrella for Playa Grande as there are no shady spots on the beach. Water taxi to town was convenient, however the last taxi is at 5 p.m. so if you either drive or take a taxi if you want to go into Tamarindo in the evening. Other amazing were beaches within a short drive. All in all, exactly what we were looking for.

Owner's Response: So nice to hear your group really enjoyed their stay! Thanks for the feedback on the beach chairs, we are already on the look out to add some to the property. Please make sure to look us up if you are ever coming back to the area. Pura Vida!

Christmas at Playa Grande..great vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house so close to the beach and large enough for a family of 7. Very nice small pool, beautiful garden and we spent a lot of time under the rooftop patio. We had a great family vacations under beautiful sunny weather

Would replace the broken surf board and would refresh some items around the house but it is Ok for vacations.

Nice cafe close to the beach with delicious homemade tacos. For food shopping, you can go to the super mercado close to the house (more expensive) but if you have a car, go to Tamarindo, Auto Mercado.

A bit disappointed that there is no more information on the protection and observation of the leatherback turtles that come to nest during that period on the beach: increasing tourim and new houses scare them away..more could be done to protect them.

Thanks to Alyssa for all her help and advises that made our vacations more enjoyable.

Would love to come back

Perfect, fantastic beach house,

  • 5 of 5

Casa Kalumina is a place of unexpected adventures and luxurious silences, of being greeted by name the second time you stop for breakfast at the surf school down the street, and enjoying vegetarian pizza while listening to a live jazz/reggae trio a five-minute stroll from the front door – under a cloudless canopy of a billion stars. If I sound a little over enthusiastic, trust me, I haven't scratched the surface.

We stayed with two other couples and a single friend and each had spacious, private accommodations. It seemed twice as many would be an easy fit with a little communal spirit.

A gorgeous, lush garden ensures absolute privacy. The house is thoughtfully laid out with well-appointed kitchen, bathrooms, and spacious common areas including a breezy covered deck with a seductive hammock secreted over the garage. The beds are comfortable and the furnishings tasteful but practical. Friendly and unobtrusive folks tend to the pool and grounds so everything is always groomed and inviting.

There was never a bit of trash on the huge beach unless you count the thousands of seashells. There were very few other people on the beach. I never noticed any biting insects. About a half-hour walk up the beach is a turtle museum, a yoga studio, and a nice bar/restaurant with fine, spicy Bloody Marys.

Casa Kalumina is a treasure; enjoy it. You will not want to leave. Pura Vida. Pure life!
