  • Exactly as advertised

    "My family thoroughly enjoyed our time in Playa Panama while staying at La Joya Bella. The pool and porch are the perfect vantage point for incredible sunsets. The property manager (Daryl) was very helpful and the communication with the property owner was great. We would definitely stay here again. I recommend the Congo Trail Zip Line and a day trip to Tamarindo. We cooked/grilled out several times and the kitchen is very well stocked. The Auto Mercado in Playa del Coco was the best grocery store. The size of the bedrooms and having a bathroom in each bedroom made the stay very comfortable. Definitely rent a car or have arrangements for transportation. Overall a very nice place."

  • Awsome stay

    "We stayed at the villa for the better part of a week and really enjoyed the whole time. We came from two weeks on the coast and the change to the lush greenery and even some rain showers was very welcome. The Villa itself was as listed and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. We saw more birds there than anywhere else and that is one of the reasons we came. We also drove around to the many different sights and enjoyed them all. Glen was a great host and gave really good suggestion as where to eat and things to do. The trails around the Villa were great and clearly marked by the painted rock lady bugs. Great touch. We were also able to feed the birds with local fruit and enjoyed watching them. Thanks again Glen!"

  • Outstanding Condo with incredible ocean sunset views

    "Outstanding, modern condo with terrific amenities. The 3BRs/3BAs were spotless and well appointed. With 4 adults, there was more than ample space for privacy and communal living. We would rush back every night from our adventures to have our own happy hour and watch the sunset. The pool is cleaned daily and we used the pool a couple of times. I highly recommend this unit (and the building) for others visiting Tamarindo. When renting in this development, customers should be aware the road from 152 (the main street in Tamarindo) is not paved (a short 2 block walk), although the entire condo unit is paved (with brick accoutrements) and is very secure."

  • Relaxing and great views

    "We recently returned from our first visit to Costa Rica and our choice to stay at House of the summer sand was perfect. Kalli was extremely helpful and provided lots of information and answered all of our questions before we arrived. The condo is well equipped with everything you will need including beach towels which you don't normally see. As mentioned in other reviews the fruit stand at the corner is great and the owner is more than friendly. Our first visit landed us a couple of free mangos to try. Trip to Palo Verde is great and was booked at weekend tours which is only 3 minute walk from the condo. A car is not required but on our next visit I think we will consider it so we can tour around a bit. We made due without as there are a number of stores near by to pick up whatever you need. Knowing Spanish is not needed but is helpful in some situations and we will have a better grasp before our next trip. We took advantage of the grocery service provide by Tropical Homes and arrived to a fully stocked fridge including cold beer. And finally the view. The pictures don't do it justice. Our favorite time were early mornings and evening watching the waves hit the shore and looking for the pelicans as they dove for fish right off shore. Beach is great for walking and pool was perfect for quick dips when you were getting hot. Again the condo was great and thank you Kalli for a fantastic holiday. Can't wait to go back."
