This was a great stay, especially considering we went blind into this so to speak, from the time we arrived until we left, the owners and their attendant were awesome and made sure that we were well taken care of ! great waves a short walk away , what more could you ask for when coming from California than a warm water uncrowded right point. Acommodations were excellent , comfortable beds, internet, etc and nice and clean. we would definitely come back ! and if you are there check out the ziplining,the property is amazing in itself and the crew they have working there is top notch.

Awesome Spring Break at Langosta Beach House!
Awesome Spring Break at Langosta Beach House!
We had a fabulous time at Langosta Beach House. When we arrived everything was in tip-top shape. Clean linens, cool house, and the beds were ready to be jumped into. The next morning we awoke to beautiful sunshine and a clear pool to swim in. We were there during Holy Week and Tamarindo was very crowded and congested so it was nice to be tucked away back at Langosta Beach and away from the crowds. As always, A.M. was a fabulous host and did some fine grilling and excursions for us. I highly recommend this place! Lauri M.

Owner response: Thanks
My first trip to Costa will undoubtedly be my best, because it simply could not have been better. I stayed for a week in the American summer season and found the house, as well as the service, to be nothing short of perfect. The rooms were all clean, laundered, and a comfortable temperature. Andrew M, the property manager, provided all the necessary information and a tour of the house and local area so that I felt right at home. The outdoor area was perfect for getting some sun and proved a great photo opp when I saw not one, but TWO real iguanas! Logistically: the beds were comfortable, better than the Hampton Inn I stayed at in San Jose, the AC worked, there were awesome movie selections when it rained, and the beach was a very short walk away and beautiful. There was running water, the fridge kept my food cold and I never saw a bug or leak. The bathrooms were clean and stocked, and the doors and windows all in top shape. There were enough Americans and English speaking people (including the helpful property manager) that I was never pressed to use more Spanish than I felt like attempting. The service was excellent, Andrew clearly has a very helpful and practical grasp of the local area, as well as a vast knowledge of all types of activities and destinations. He helped me coordinate surfing lessons, horseback riding, zip lining, a poker tournament, a sight seeing adventure to a pirate cave, and some other memorable events. I can't say enough for the ease with which I was able to enjoy the beautiful Costa Rican country. I would recommend this house to visitors of all ages and inclinations. Playa Langosta is beautiful, the beaches are warm, the people are all tan and smiling, and I will certainly be back as soon as I have some more vacation coming!

BEST TRIP EVER!
BEST TRIP EVER!
This was by far the funnest trip i have ever been on! I scored perfect waves right out back everyday, come in from surfing to a beatiful private pool and patio, ate amazing food right around the corner. Andrew was very helpful especially in guiding me to local surf spots and sights. The house was really big and cozy not to mention clean. I had an amazing time. VERY HIGHLY RECOMENDED!

We loved our stay in Playa Langosta. The Home was a perfect size for our family, very clean and well kept. The pool and private yard made it easier, having 4 kids. The beach was beautiful and was only afew minute walk away. Andrew was amazing at helping us know where the best restaurants were to eat and where to go atving and anything else we needed. This was the perfect location for anything we wanted to do.

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and our Spanish skills were weak at best. Being unfamililar with the area, we were still able to travel around with ease and frequent the local favorite spots for entertainment and dining, as there was someone available 24/7 to transport us & show us around. This made our stay very comfortable in addition to giving us a real taste of the "local" life. The beaches were absolutely beautiful, with Playa Grande being our favorite. The food was out of this world delish!! You haven't tasted a "real" banana or pineapple until you've tasted one in Cost Rica. As for the accommodations, they were very comfortable (felt like a home away from home) and clean. We couldn't have asked for anything more. If you wanted to relax by the pool, it was right outside your door or if you wanted to go to the beach you could walk and be there in minutes. Great set-up for a family! The kids would love it! And again, we will emphasize on how wonderful it was to have someone who was familiar with the area available 24/7 to take us wherever we wanted to go. No taxis or buses to wait for, no rental car to deal with, trying to figure out the navigational system...A BIG PLUS!! We chartered a fishing boat and had an absolute blast. We didn't have to travel 60-80 miles out to make the "big catch." Six to eight miles out and we were in it. Mahi mahi, Tuna and Bonita were the catch of the day and on the menu that evening. Because we had our own patio, grill and kitchen, we were able to cook-up our catch and dine like kings. Nothing like fresh fish. Again, thanks to our property host, hooking us up with the charter fishing boat and then cleaning the fish with precision. We had a day that we will never forget. The weather was perfect and the scenary was breathtaking. We are not surfers ourselves, but if you are, this place is a surfer's paradise. Big waves...surfers everywhere! Oh yes, we must not forget to mention the beautiful & unique vegetation and wildlife, such as, monkeys, very strange looking squirrels and crabs like you have never seen before in the US. All in all, a wonderful experience. We would highly recommend this property to first time visitors to Costa Rica, as well as, returning visitors. We believe that if we would have stayed at one of the area resorts we wouldn't have experienced the "local" lifestyle as we did. This will definitely be a return destination in our future travel plans.
