"We couldn't have found a more relaxing place to get away! Kelly and David's home in Playa Grande far exceeding our expectations! I feel SO rejuvenated after spending a week in their paradise. I love that there is such an awesome alternative to crowded beaches and hotels. From the beach, you wouldn't even know that anyone lives here, yet you are actually just steps away from the surf. I love the soothing natural sounds that lure you to sleep at night - what an incredible change from city sounds. I enjoyed taking the walk to the other end of the beach for yoga classes. For anyone wanted to get re-attuned to nature, this is an awesome place. You'll feel revitalized on all levels - body, mind and spirit. AND don't forget to go for a night walk. If you REALLY want to see what the stars look like - take you beach towel down to the beach AFTER dark - and soak in god's wonder.
We'll be back for sure!!! Thanks Kelly and David for sharing this very special place with us. You're the best!

"Casa Costa Palmera is a little slice of Heaven. Our family had the best time on this amazing beach and in this amazing house. We hired Maria to cook our meals (the best decision ever) and she is an amazing cook. We also used the food stocking service (another perfect decision) and Alyssa brought us our food so we didn't have to waste time at the grocery store. Orlando and Maria are absolutely amazing, kind, and wonderful people. They made us feel welcomed and like royalty. The beach is absolutely splendid and we spent every day swimming or body boarding in the surf. We walked on the beach every morning and were on the beach every evening till sunset. We went snorkeling at Playa Carbon as well which is something that you definitely shouldn't miss when you visit. Alyssa, our concierge, helped set up several tours and trips for us including ziplining and fishing. She was so amazing to work with. We cannot wait to go back! This was the best vacation our family has ever been on! Thank you so much Alyssa, Maria, and Orlando!"

"WOW!! What an amazing trip that was! Our group of 9 family members (ages 3 to 60 with a very pregnant daughter-in-law), spent 9 beautiful days/nights at this amazing beach house. Our family highly recommends this place. Not only is the house remarkable, but it was truly a beautiful experience working with the terrific team supporting this residence. On our first call, Greg was so passionate about his beach house and CR and we were only researching!
Then we met Miriam and Nicho (caretakers) on our arrival! They were just as passionate as Greg! Interestingly, they spoke almost zero English and our group only knew a few Spanish words, but through their enthusiasm/warmth, we communicated with no misunderstanding. They are simply wonderful people! And so is Damaris who was outstanding at cleaning and doing our laundry. These folks are humble and always had a big smile on their faces. There was no “sour” service people here as is not unusual on such trips. Our contact was less with Erik, the night guard, but he was also very pleasant and respectful.
We also met Gabriella and Daniella (Greg’s wife/daughter). I still fondly recall the few times they stopped over and we sat on our beach porch and it honestly felt like we were catching up with old friends!
We are thankful we took Greg’s recommendation and worked with Gabriella in arranging 2 rental cars. She bailed us out more than once…these agencies really try to suck every dollar out of you (Greg can tell you more about this). Daniella was so helpful with planning our trips to the volcano, zip lining, crocodile tour, diving and surfing.
Bottom line, this is a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Every day felt like we owned the entire beach (there was a handful of folks - locals and tourists). We spent hours on the patio, reading, writing, conversing, or simply chilling and watching/hearing the waves of the powerful Pacific Ocean at work. When eating in, why eat anywhere else but on the patio? Most of us also had great massages from Christina on the patio/beach.
To ensure you make the most of your trip and have a great time, be sure to read and follow all the terrific info and guidance Greg provides about your stay at Casa and in CR. It was invaluable to us, especially being our first trip there.
Our family would most definitely return to CasaDelMar! Thanks Greg, Gabriella and team for helping us create wonderful family memories that we will carry for 2 lifetimes like my brother said!"

"The villa was wonderful for our family of four. I loved having two bedrooms so the kids didn't have to share a room with us. The common area is large and kitchen has everything you need to do some cooking. The market around the corner had more American products than the Super Sized one in Tamarindo so check that one first if you are looking for something familiar (assuming you are American of course - LOL). With only six villas in the property the pool was always free for a dip which was nice in the afternoons when the beaches were a little too rough for our little ones. The owner was delightful coming by twice in the week. We really enjoyed working with her as everything went smoothly. My only surprise was that the villa only had air conditioning in the bedrooms and not throughout. Not a deal breaker for us since sleeping was the time we needed it most but just sharing for others."
