  • Fantastic Week!

    "Highly recommend this property. Just steps from the Pacific. Went on a girl's week with friends. House is well kept and clean. Bedrooms, each with a separate bath, were nice and comfortable. Local cable has several English speaking channels for anyone who wants to keep up with the news/shows. Maria, onsite housekeeper, is wonderful. She prepared our meals at a nominal cost which enabled us to enjoy all available time. However, you can do your own cooking if you desire. The ability to coordinate for groceries and drinks to be available upon our arrival was an added pleasure. Just sitting by the ocean was reward in itself, but the coordinated trips for a catamaran tour, local National Park to lounge in geothermal pools, and trips to town made it a wonderful experience. Plenty to do for adventure seekers or those who simply want to relax. Several great restaurants are within a short walking distance. Hopefully, will be able to go back with my family and friends. I know they would love it!"

  • 8 river brats arrive at casa del mar

    "There was only 8 of us on this trip, me the one who believes if it sounds to good to be true, well it is, but i sent a check, and then another, and I had Gabriela reserve me 2 cars at 'U Save Liberia' car agency. Address to house, Casa Del mar, longitude by latitude. Well some body picked us up at the airport, good thing because 20 other guys offered, took us to rental agency, got an old beater van that held 8, awesome, and away we traveled, with some other directions from Greg and Gabriella that were absolutely perfect, thank you, my kind of directions, for a man without a smart phone. We found the home at night, no problem, Nicho and Merriam were waiting for us. The home is absolutely perfect, even though your never in the home but to sleep, the outdoor patio and the beach is where we hang. From my master bed I only have to lift my head up to see 8 lounge chairs set up under " THE 4 COCOA PALMS AND 2 ALMOND TREES" heaven, everyday. I'm really hard to please, the first day I was not so sure if this is good enough, as the week went on it became the most amazing adventure, everything about this house, the host Greg and Gabriela, the care takers, Nicho and Merriam, location very perfect not touristy, this is July and we are ready to go back for Christmas. As other reviews wrote, you really can spend your whole vacation right at the house on the beach, it is playa grande 'big beach' and big, beautiful, and all yours besides a few tourist and a few locals. A short drive to Tamarindo can't hurt, fun drive very busy , bicycles, horses, cows,and alot of walkers, very rurual, And if you do a sunset cruise choose the pirate ship, Antares, so non commercial, thank you Daniella, it felt like our own personal sail boat, that will be a great memory. So we thank all of you at Casa Del Mar for a very unforgettable trip, and we hope we were'nt to much problem, and hope u will except us back. PS the next day U SAVE LIBERIA brought us a brand new van, How did they know where we live? Longitude- latitude We are the River Brats life is good"

  • Lovely House Great location

    "On my 3rd trip to Playa Grande, my friend and I (60 something women) took our 9 twenty-something kids for a weeklong break from the cold Northeast Everybody loved Casa Kalumina. Elisa, the rental agent, is local and was there to help us activate the wireless internet and assist with any need. The house is close to the beach, local market and restaurants as well as the water taxi to Tamarindo. We are booking for next year already"

  • Loved our stay!

    "We had a great experience in this beautiful, beachfront home. It was charmingly decorated, clean and right on the beach!! So fun to walk out to the beach and enjoy this incredible place. Would highly recommend this to anyone and felt like it was great value for the size and location of the home. We also loved the recommended restaurants, all-day excursion, and surf lessons! Hope to return someday soon."

Playa Grande Travel Tips

Playa Grande Beach Rentals Are Tropical Paradises

Do more than dream about the tropical paradise of Costa Rica. Instead, book your perfect Playa Grande Beach rentals now to experience the Guanacaste Province and Marino Las Baulas National Park. Every day, you can rise and run down to the pristine shoreline around Playa Grande resorts for a dip in the clear Pacific Ocean. At dusk, set up dinner on the deck, so that you can enjoy the sunset. Vacations in Costa Rica are your dream come true.

Playa Grande Resorts and the Life of the Sea Turtle

Playa Grande resorts and Guanacaste Province are most notable for the endangered leatherback sea turtles that visit each year. These turtles struggle up the sand from the ocean to lay their eggs. Vacations in Costa Rica cannot be complete without a look at the natural park where the turtles are protected. If you cannot make the nesting season, try to come 55 to 75 days after the nesting occurs. During this time, you can walk from Playa Grande Beach rentals to witness the baby turtles emerging from the sand to crawl into the sea.

Surf Vacations in Costa Rica

Vacations in Costa Rica to Playa Grande are also notable for their surfing. The main beach at Playa Grande will see waves of varying heights for all skill levels of surfers. This beach is a lot quieter than Playa Tamarindo though equally as good. You will have to be an early riser most mornings to leave Playa Grande resorts for the ocean waves beckoning you.

Enjoy Tours near Playa Grande Beach Rentals

Vacations to Playa Grande Beach rentals do not have to be all about the beach. You can travel inland to experience eco-tours above the ground. Witness the waterfalls that allow the river to snake its way out to the ocean on a trekking tour of the rainforest.
