Playa Negra house description
SAME HOUSE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT, now with more services, from Jarrod and Meghan.
Just 200 meters walk to the snorkeling beach and 8-10 minutes walk to more beautiful PACIFIC BEACHES; relax in Mango Tango's unique riverfront retreat. From the main tree-top level gaze at animals enjoying the pristine riverfront. Enjoy Costa Rican coffee on the romantic master bedroom balcony over-looking the river; you will likely be joined by a monkey, parakeets, Iguana, red-tailed squirrels and Mapaches also enjoying breakfast. Dine, read or enjoy yoga on the outdoor covered patio surrounded by gardens. Walk a short distance in our gated community to Playa Negra, Sandy Beach, Playa Blanca and more for surfing, beach combing, dining, sunset drinks, and rejuvenating ocean views.
WHY IS PLAYA NEGRA AWESOME? You're probably looking at multiple locations in Costa Rica. If a selection of uncrowded beaches, wild-life, a laid-back 'time does not matter' atmosphere, no high rise buildings, no franchises, multiple surfing breaks and tranquility are on your vacation agenda; Playa Negra beach town is your place to kick back and smell the sea! In Playa Negra you can capture the way Costa Rica used to be! If you need a dose of a touristy town, its only half an hour drive to Tamarindo for shopping, Subway, our favorite huge US style grocery store the 'AutoMercado' and shop after shop of souvenirs. You can also go 40 minutes inland to visit Santa Cruz for a taste of an authentic Costa Rica mini city.
HOME INTERIOR LAYOUT: Tree-Top Casa Mango Tango is a 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom private home on a 7500SF lot that overlooks the river-front (don't worry, no more insects than anywhere else, but lots of extra wildlife!). BEDROOMS: Two queen bedrooms with balconies, one fully renovated bathroom and the main living area (with A/C unit) are upstairs. The downstairs queen bedroom and beautiful bathroom suite has a separate entrance and opens to the large covered patio and pool. All 3 bedrooms have tropical ceiling fans (2 have A/C units), quality MEMORY FOAM toppers on pillow top mattresses, custom made beds, and large locally made cedar armoires. Every bedroom offers attractive green views and all bedroom windows have curtains. The KITCHEN offers granite slab counters and modern appliances, a microwave and all the pots and utensils needed for cooking and serving. You'll find even matching dinnerware and wine glasses for setting a pretty table.
OUTSIDE enjoy the beautiful private POOL under the Guanacaste tree with Caribbean blue glass tile and granite (approximately 4' deep, with two 1.5 meter long in-pool benches + a tanning ledge for 2+ persons). There is also a travertine outdoor shower in our gated yard with private parking. The LAUNDRY room offers a surfboard rack, pool floats, new washer, dryer, a WeberQ BBQ and cooler for grocery trips.

You We are a phone call or email away to answer home questions or help with directions, or an trusted employee if we're away.
BEACHES: Through the gated ocean-front community, stroll 4 minutes on palm and hibiscus lined paths to a small secluded beach with snorkeling and 8-10 minutes walk to Playa Negra Reef Break, Sandy White Swimming Beach and Open-Air Restaurant and bar. It is a short 10 Minute Drive to Playa Avellanas North (White Sand, Reef/ Sand Surfing, Restaurant), and 15 minutes drive to Playa Junquillal South (Black Sand, Beach Break surfing, Great for Kids) or lots of other great beaches we'll share about too!

Loved IT!Guest comment entered by manager
Our family of three loved our stay here. With so many choices we had a hard time deciding which property to book. Shortly after reserving Mango Tango I knew we picked the right one. The owners Sunshine and Cody go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect. Sunshine sent us a ton of information on the area, her attention to detail is amazing. Cody actually took the time to draw us a map to a local park. The house itself is beautiful. When looking for a property were going back and forth about an ocean view. While this rental doesn't have one, it makes up for it with its privacy and lush landscape. It is also within close proximity to many beaches. You can hear the waves while sitting in the pool. Mango Tango is just as nice on the inside. The house has everything you could possibly need. Everything was well maintained and the furnishings were extremely nice. Sunshine is a very talented artist and interior decorator. I can't say anything negative about Mango Tango. The owners made our trip even better than I could have imagined.

Great House Great Time
We enjoyed our stay at the house in Playa Negra. It is a beautiful home with wonderful views. The house was very comfortable and clean. Cody & Sunshine made us feel so welcome. They were very helpful when we had any questions or issues. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we could possible need. The bathrooms had great showers and the towels were fluffy. The bedrooms were very comfortable and had plenty of room for clothes and luggage. The massive amounts of windows made the house bright and airy. We really appreciated the use of the washer and dryer downstairs too! We were entertained every morning by the monkey family trekking through the trees surrounding the house. The iguanas came down from the rooftop to eat some of the greenery in the back yard. We awoke every day to the beautiful songs of the parrots and other exotic birds. The yard and surrounding area was always alive with the sounds and movements of wildlife. The balcony areas were used several times a day, from morning coffee, picture taking, and relaxing after swimming to cocktails at night. It truly felt like paradise. The local restaurants were very good and reasonably priced. The local people were very friendly and most speak English. The prices at the Hotel Playa Negra gift shop are very good, as opposed to some of the shops around Playa Tamarendo. Café Playa Negra has a great Tico breakfast, the Villa Deevena is gorgeous and the food delicious, for dinner. When, not if, we come back to CR, we will be staying here at the Mango Tango! We loved it.
