"We love Casa de Vre and recently stayed for our third time. Needless to say we have already booked our 4th stay for next year. The house is fantastic and literally right next to the beach. The pool is a great escape from the ocean and the house if very good. The staff is also very accommodating and helpful with cooking and laundry (if needed). We love Playa Grande and use the house as a base to also go visit other areas for day trips. I highly recommend staying here."

"Our group of nine (2 families with boys aged 9 to 16), stayed at the Frijoles Locos apartments for our whole 2 weeks in Costa Rica. Ever since the get-go, Corynne was wonderful in responding to our numerous questions about life in Grande and also the different activities we wanted to take part in.
First off, the setup is the best for either 1 or 2 families. We would each have our own apartment, which were well furnished. AC worked A1, we did a lot of cooking and had everything we needed, beds were super comfortable, Wifi worked awesome for the kids (for when we were not at the beach). The pool was great to relax in after tough day surfing.
We also took in seven days of surf lessons for the kids and the adults. As first time surfers, we were driven to the beach in the great beach taxis in order to catch the best waves. Our master instructor Ian stayed further out with the boys who were catching great waves and had a blast. The parents stayed closer to shore catching smaller but fun waves with either JC, Andreas or Sebastien, all great instructors. Each instructor would share their tricks and by the end of our 2 weeks, we were catching great waves.
Staying above the surf shop was great for us as there was always a friendly face available to answer our questions or help us order some yummy fish and veggies from the local suppliers. The kids would also get a bunch of high fives and smiles as they would come across their surf instructors. The crew at Frijoles Locos really made us feel like we were part of the family. Our youngest grew attached to Loca the dog, who actually stayed a couple of nights with us.
We always felt safe staying at Frijoles and we also had diner at El Huerto and Kike's Place right around the corner, two great options to give us a break from cooking.
If you are looking for a nice quiet surf town with great waves, beautiful sunsets, far from the commercial hustle, this is THE place.
All nine of us are unanimous in saying that this was one of the best vacations we have ever had in such a beautiful part of the world."

"Great location on the cliffs looking over the pacific ocean. The 'jungle' leading down from the house to the ocean also happens to have several troops of monkeys that swing thru the trees from time to time.
Anna and Freddy, the care takers are wonderful additions to the property. Anna is a very good cook, charming and gracious, she keeps the place feeling homey and clean. The pool over looking the ocean is great. The house, great. Playa Carillo, great. There is not much written about the near by beach but it is very idyllic and highly recommended. Very few people; water can be a little bit rough occasionally; the water temp. is just a couple degrees cooler than the air; All in all very beautiful. Stay at Casa de la Loma you will have a great vacation."

"My girlfriend and I just returned from our third stay at the villa within the last year. As so many others have professed, it is an "other-world" experience. We are definitely addicted and can't wait for our next trip!! Jerry, thanks again for sharing your slice of paradise."
