  • perfect 10 vacation home.

    "We met friends from Ohio for 9 days in Costa Rica and Casa Prieta was amazing! It was spacious and comfortable. It had everything we needed and more. The owner, Rick has really thought of everything. If you ever plan a trip to Costa Rica, THIS is where you want to stay. The view from our house was nothing short of spectacular. Beautiful grounds and trees and flowers. An infinity pool. Birds all around. A 500 ft drop to the Pacific Ocean below us, that made it possible to hear the Ocean at all times. Early sunrise over the mountains behind our house brought out the Howler Monkeys that I heard for the first time. WOW they sound freaky and huge. But, as I learned later in the trip, they are not huge or freaky...they just sound that way. :) The sunsets at our house took my breath away. I've seen a few that were amazing , but this? The sky went from shades of Blue and Yellow, to bright Oranges mixed with a golden ball sitting low in the sky. Until finally, it would turn deep orange and reds and look as though the sky had been set on fire, and then just seem to slip into the ocean.....it really did make me cry it was so amazing. I watched the sun set every night and I was never disappointed. Our housekeeper, Francis was so sweet and did such a wonderful job. I felt like the house was "new again" after she left each time. Every morning I had coffee on the deck while a bird visited me for bread crumbs. Every day we sunned poolside and had fresh fruit blended drinks. And at night after whatever the day had brought, we seemed to naturally end up back at our house early for either swimming or just sitting under that huge sky. It really was perfect...This vacation exceeded every expectation I had, and blew my preconceived notions of Central America out of the water. There are mountains and Volcanoes all around. The monkeys and geckos make cool sounds that I've never heard before. The food tastes better there. The Pacific Ocean is amazing, loud and powerful. The Flowers, even in the dry season are lovely, And the people are gorgeous and kind. Costa Rica is the most beautiful place I have ever seen with my own eyes. I think I'm in love.... Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Pura Vida. Tracey and Will Smith"

  • A majestic setting with the most amazing staff!

    "Our family stayed in Casa Playa Blanca the week before Christmas and had the best vacation! Jonas picked us up at the airport right on time and set the tone for the entire vacation. He arranged several excursions for us, including ziplining, boat tours, and catamaran cruise which were all wonderful. The staff at Casa Playa Blanca truly made the trip for us! Roy cooked numerous meals for us, all of which were delicious and tailored to our tastes. Erica was a great housekeeper - very unintrusive yet thorough! Jose kept us safe, kept the pool spotless and also built us a bonfire. The house had all the amenities as described in the posting and was very comfortable. We loved the patio for evening happy hours during the sunset! Can't wait to go back!"

  • Great location, beautiful beach

    "Working with Sid was easy. he was very respectful of our privacy, but would respond any time we had a question. He has an absolutely beautiful villa at a reasonable price. We stayed in the larger villa on the middle floor. It was spotless when we arrived. We cooked in-home several times, and were not lacking for kitchen supplies for beans, rice, breakfasts, tacos, etc. Everything was there, and in good working order. He even had a colander. He gave us alternate directions to get to the Villa from SJO in order to avoid construction. He referred us to a pretty good tour operator who offered nice excursions for reasonable prices. His maid, Maritsa, was sweet and a great cook. She made us comida tipica one evening and it was REALLY really good. You should ask for her to cook for you. She was super timely with laundry - which meant we didn't have to pack as much! The villa itself is nestled in a hillside with a great view in the morning of the mountains. The pool below is a play-pool, which means that the water was quite warm in our week of travel. Still, after being beaten up by the ocean, it was very nice to just float and relax in the pool. The tropical landscaping around the property is very pretty. We saw a few interesting birds, and very pretty flowers. On our last morning, the howler monkeys gave us a show in the trees just outside the perimeter of the property. The walk to the beach is down a somewhat steep walk. You'll want to wear shoes. After being tossed around the ocean, the walk back up the hill can be a bit tiresome. It would be difficult for someone who lives a sedentary life, but just stop to breathe and you'll make it. Bring bug spray. Bring sunscreen. Bring shampoo. Sid provides shower soap, but it's what's available locally. The pix don't show bathrooms, but they were all very nice. Nice bath towels and linens. Beach towels were thin, but hey, dry off on the beach in the sun! The A/C worked just fine. In the hot week we were there, we opted to use it. Sid has you put down a cash deposit for damage. Just use the coasters to protect the finishes, and treat the place respectfully. He provides all the basic necessities and many nice amenites. Enjoy!!"

  • Incredible place

    "My husband and I stayed for a week, with a friend joining us for 3 days. The house is exactly as pictured, large beachfront with a fabulous private pool. The beach in front of the house was almost private, never more than 5 or 6 people walking past, usually the beach was empty. Small, constant surf breaking on shore, and a sandy beach for easy swimming and playing in the waves. The pool is clean, and larger than we have had with many condo rentals but all private for us! The living space is upstairs, three bedrooms/ two baths plus sleeps 3 or 4 more on beds in open areas of the house. Huge, well stocked kitchen with every appliance, lots of dishes, glasses, and gas range. Every room airconditioned with ceiling fans, controls in each room. Comfortable dining and living room area, but the gem is the huge covered porch facing the ocean. Has a hammock, wooden rocking chairs, a second dining table. You could comfortably seat 6+ people relaxing and watching the spectacular sunsets. The inside of the house is probably 20 years old and could be updated, but everything was clean and functional. And Jorge, the host/ caretaker of the property- he was fabulous. Met us at the airport and drove us "home" before getting us a rental car delivered to the house. Would definitely recommend this service, driving in costa rica was complicated, and he made it so easy! My husband needed to see a doctor, Jorge drove us to a clinic and later to the hospital in Liberia. He came to registration, translated for us, gave his phone number to the clinic to call if any problems, and called to check on us like we were family visiting. English was spoken by some in the clinics, but having a very fluent translator was ideal. Jorge was unobtrusive, offered his services and checked on us daily, but was not at all pushy. Anything we wanted, like a local restaurant, fresh seafood delivered to house, a German bakery, "Jorge has a friend" who can make it happen. He was delightful. This house would be a great place for a couple, friends traveling together, or a family reunion. We would definitely return."
