There is a thatched roof rancho with hammocks and sitting area. There is also an outdoor propane firepit that has a view of the pool. Many fruit trees have been added to the backyard. Sometimes you will hear the ocean but almost daily you will hear the howlers and many times they will give us a surprise appearance in the surrounding trees. Out home is alarmed with armed responders. Our son Chris (who is a professional photographer) lives in a casita in the far corner of the property. He will greet you upon arrival and help out in any way he can to make your stay enjoyable....moreless

- Our home was built for our retirement, however in the meantime we are willing to share it with you. It has been designed for comfort and privacy. On our 1 1/4 acre lot, you feel like you are in your own mini resort. The house is beautiful but the backyard is definitely our biggest selling feature. Open the front door and you gaze straight through to the pool, jacuzzi, waterfall. There are three covered decks off of the house, one main deck and two off of the bedrooms. A separate rancho beside the pool. This rancho has a bar with stools, refrigerator, ice maker, sink and barbecue. Wander along the path past the waterfall to a outdoor propane fire pit or continue along and there is a thatched roof rancho with two large hammocks surrounded by tropical vegetation. You may never want to leave but if you do, it is just a short walk to Brasilito Beach, restaurants and shopping. We are in the gated development of Catalina Cove and we also have a monitored alarm system for your comfort...moreless

Well the place is just as wonderful as we remember it. The yard is beautiful, the grass, trees and flowers gave you the feeling of being in a park!! The palapa with the hammocks is a great addition, a very nice place to read and sleep. The grandchildren loved the pool and to hang out in the palapa. We spent many nights sitting by the fire table (great addition) another of the grandchildrens favorite past time before bed - they loved it. The house is just great, the bedrooms are so comfortable. The kitchen is great to work in. My family had a wonderful time - it was hard to get them to leave to go to the beach. We enjoyed many beaches our favorite being Conchal. The locals are very nice. We spend lots of time with the at the beach, eating and drinking. We had a wonderful time in your great home. Thanks. Hope to be back next year. Chris - thanks for everything!!!

Costa Rican Christmas
Costa Rican Christmas
My family and I spent the holidays at Casa LaSalle and were impressed with the accommodations. The beautiful pictures on this site do not do the property justice. It is exquisite in person! This property would be appropriate for many family or friend combinations as the house has 4 private bedrooms each with their own bath. As many other reviewers mentioned, it is at times difficult to leave the resort-like pool area. The house has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped and the outdoor kitchen was nice for grilling. We did enjoy surfing lessons in Tamarindo - Kelly's Surf Shop will get you up and surfing. Noguis (spelling?) in Tamarindo has great shrimp tacos and definitely get a slice of their homemade pie, YUM!. 7 Cielo-near the house- was our favorite for pizza and lasagna. Mar Y Sol (pricey) in Flamingo was wonderful for a sunset dinner New Years Eve. They have interesting menu items to try like duck and fresh fish. YOU NEED A CAR! We had a blast driving to many beaches and highly suggest you do the same as the worst beach (filthy) was Brasilito-the one near the house. Famingo Beach was close and fun with boogie boards -- thank you Chris! Lunch at Lola's is a must do with a combined day at Avellanas Beach. This was by far the most beautiful beach we visited. Tamarindo Beach was fun for surfing but crowded and parking is not easy. We were here at the busiest time of year so keep that in mind when you read this review. We were never bothered with theft but it is common in Costa Rica. Just do not leave your stuff unattended. Four of our adult children went scuba diving out of Flamingo Beach and had a wonderful experience -Manta rays and all! The hike to the waterfall in Rincon was filled with monkey sightings, coates, turkeys and the waterfall swim was worth the hike! The owner, is quick to answer your questions and help in any way she can--thank you Brenda! You will not be disappointed renting this home!

This was truly an amazing experience!!!! The house and property were absolutely gorgous, we had our own private oasis!! Brenda, the owner, was so helpful and gave us a lot of great information before we even arrived. Chris greeted us with a warm and welcoming smile and took care of us the whole week we were there. We couldn't have felt more welcomed! There were 4 couples in our group and the house was very spacious and had plenty of privacy as well. The kitchen has all up to date appliances including an awesome margarita maker. The pool.....what can I say.....it was one of the highlights! We spent every evenng in the pool which had the most amazing waterfall and lights and we spend every morning sitting out by the pool drinking coffee and having breakfast. The sunsets are Pura Vida!!!

Just got home late last night from the most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. Everything was first rate. Months and weeks before we got there Brenda was super accommodating and welcomed us openly to her home. She was very descriptive and accurate on reviewing to us the restaurants, beaches and tours. She even spent time to answer emails back and forth one weekend and I found out later she was in the middle of hosting her sons wedding. The home was breathtaking. Very clean and comfortable. We had three couples and all of our private quarters were first rate. The kitchen was very well equipped for the meals that we cooked there. We made good use of the margarita blender, but we used it to make pina coladas. We had visions of going on all the tours and seeing all the sights. Brenda did warn us that we wouldn't want to leave the property, and she was right about that. We spent a lot of time out by the pool and enjoying the comfort of the home. Chris was very helpful and made sure that we got all the help we needed finding numbers to tour operators rental car agents and cab drivers. Restaurants that we would recommend are The Happy Snapper, 7 Cielos had great pizza, Carlos and Carlos gave us by far the best service, but we all wish we had gone for one more round of the fish tacos at El Oasis. So good! We as a group have traveled together before several times and have agreed in the past that we should always go somewhere new and have new experiences, but we will probably have a hard time keeping to that rule after staying here at Casa LaSalle.

Owner response: Thanks Debbie and gang for staying at Casa La Salle. I am so glad you had a great time and enjoyed our property. It was my pleasure to give you information for your stay. Chris says you were a great bunch of people. I truly hope you do visit us again - I think it's better the second time as everything is much more familiar. Once again, thanks so much for choosing our little piece of paradise. Pura Vida!!
From the moment we drove up the driveway we were impressed by this property and soon realized that this was everything we had hoped for and more! This was our first time in Costa Rica as well as our first time renting a house and it was an amazing experience! There were four couples in our group and the house was spacious enough to accommodate everyone very comfortably. We couldn't believe how large the bedrooms were and how they offered privacy for each individual couples. The central part of the house was used as the main gathering place and featured a large modern kitchen equipped with top of the line appliances. The backyard was equally stunning and offered a private swimming pool along with a waterfall and amazing landscaped grounds. Many days were spent relaxing by the pool and enjoying the picturesque grounds in a very private and relaxing atmosphere. The barbeque, bar area was equally welcoming and conveniently included everything from a refreshment refrigerator, sink and stereo system to an ice making machine. The property is conveniently situated as it is a ten minute walk to Brasilito which offers a variety of restaurants and entertainment. Chris, the owner's son, was a pleasure to have around and made sure our stay was most enjoyable!!! Casa La Salle is definitely a top quality property and we can't wait to return!

Chris says he really enjoyed your group and hopes you come back again soon!!! We invite you to check out our pictures soon as we have just completed the rest of the backyard with a lot more tropical plants and trees, a large fountain with lights, walkways, a thatched roof rancho with hammocks and a propane firepit!!! Pura Vida. Once again, many thanks!!!
Date of stay:April16-23,2011 The Rossi family from the central part of Illinois Casa LaSalle could not have been any more perfect for a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica. My husband and I visited with our two married children, our new grandchild (8 months old), and our two sons not yet in college. The home is abslolutely beautiful and comfotable. We even were provided with a crib and high chair for the baby. The pool is very well maintained and so relaxing. The grounds are beautiful and the area is as advertised--very private. Chris, the owners' son, was a great help and good company. We miss him. Brenda, the owner, provided us with so much great information on restaurants, grocery stores,shops,and tour companies, and other important tid bits about Costa Rica. It really helped make our experience very memorable. Thank you for a fabulous time!! We highly recommend this awesome home, and a visit to Costa Rica. We learned so much.

Owner response: Tom, Jan and family - It was a great pleasure to have you stay at Casa La Salle. We are so glad that you enjoyed our home and Costa Rica. We hope you come back in the future so that you can enjoy our new additions - the completion of the backyard with propane firepit and thatched roof hammock area. Once again, we are delighted that you had a great holiday!!!!
We had a fantastic holiday at Casa La Salle in January, 2011. The property is "as advertised" and much more. The home is deluxe in every way and the attention to detail is amazing. Pictures can not do the property justice. We had three couples in our group, but four couples would be accommadated perfectly, as well. The house has four bedrooms, all with king beds and en-suite bathrooms, so everyone has a first class room. The pool and pool area is perfect for couples or families with young kids. We generally spent our days in the backyard enjoying the amazing amenities this property has to offer, but when we wanted to venture out, we were amazed that the tour operators and many of the restaurant owners picked us up right at our front door. Claudia was very helpful in arranging all that we wanted to do. You can also choose to stroll in to town for supper or enjoy the uncrowded beaches. It is hard to decide what was better, the weather or the property. 27 degrees Celsius and sunny with 45% humidity everyday. I should not forget Chris (the owner's son) who was very helpful in making sure we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. He was up early in the morning making sure the grounds were immaculate for us to enjoy. We felt privileged to have had the opportunity to stay at Casa La Salle. Thanks

As this is a new home and venture for us all suggestions are greatly appreciated. We have made arrangements to aquire the items that you suggested for Casa La Salle.
WOW ! Words really can't express the holiday my family of four just spent at this fabulous property in this beautiful country. The owners did not miss a thing when they built, furnished & decorated this holiday heaven. The grounds & pool were very well maintained by the owners son who happens to also be a proffesional photographer who took countless pictures so we will remember our holiday forever. The owners provided a guide book with tour, sightseeing, beach, transport & resturant suggestions that was a life saver. If you are looking for the "perfect" accomadations for your holiday......you have found it with Casa La Salle. We would recommend this property to anyone & everyone. Pura Vida !

About the owner: We are a family from Canada. We visited Costa Rica about 10 years ago and loved the country and the local Ticos. We came across the lot about 4 years ago and were so thrilled to have something so close to the ocean, but with a huge lot for privacy. Since we would not be living here we were also happy that it is in a gated community.

The beauty of the Costa Rican landscape and the wonderful friendly people. Close to the beach, but private and has all the amenities close-by. Restaurants, bars, casino, shopping, fishing, waters-ports.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy, Privacy, Privacy, All on a beautiful one and a quarter acre lot, private pool and spa, Short walk to Brasilito beach. Close to Flamingo and Tamarindo. Many restaurants and tour operators will pick you up and drop you off right at the house.
