  • 50th wedding anniversary with whole family

    "What a wonderful week we had. Your place was just marvelous. One never really knows what it will turn out to be until on site and we were just ecstatic once in the house and saw all of the accommodations. It seemed to us that you have the best place in Playa Grande in the facility known as Villa Olivia!!!!!!! We could not have asked for anything better. The staff were wonderful, gracious, helpful, courteous, and very attentive. Kim was a fabulous cook, every evening meal. We participated in a number of interesting activities but enjoyed the beach, the waves, and the view from the hammocks, lounge chairs, and benches under the trees at your place the most!!! Thank you for your responsiveness throughout the reservation process."

  • Casa Zen is awesome!!!

    "My family of 8 stayed at Casa Zen for 7 nights. We have 4 adults, 1 teenager, 1 10yr. old boy and twin 8 yr. old girls. Everyone thought this was our BEST vacation ever, even better than a great trip to Disney World. Casa Zen is also in a great location. It's just a 1 minute walk to an awesome beach with great waves for surfing. This beach was never crowded. If you want a crowd, it only takes about 15 minutes to get to Tamarindo for shopping, eating, etc. Just walk down to the water taxi's and they will ferry you across the river to Tamarindo. The house is very comfortable. All of the bedooms have great air conditioners. We used the outdoor grill several times. We also walked to Hotel Bula Bula many times to eat and drink at the great restaurant and bar. The walk is about 10 minutes and make sure to take flash light. We enjoyed relaxing in the pool too. it was also nice to have daily maid and pool service provioded by staff from Hotel Bula Bula. We will definitely be going back to Costa Rica and would stay at Casa Zen again!!!"

  • Casa Mandarina and Amigo Realty Top Notch!

    "We are terribly sad to see this week come to an end. There is so much left to do so we must plan our next visit. I think Casa Mandarina would be an excellent place for a crowd. Marcia is an amazing cook! Authentic Costa Rican cuisine everyday, breakfast lunch dinner, when we weren't out on the best adventures, organized by Marjolet! Many thanks to Marjolet for getting us on personalized tours with Don Grant, the owner of Get Lost In Costa Rica (# 1 in Trip Advisor for Costa Rica). Now that we have been here, our next trip will be even better! Turtle tour, River Tour, Zip lining, horseback riding, waterslide, mud bath, swim in natural hot springs heated by volcano, and endless fun and relaxation at Casa Mandarina and Playa Grande beach! This is our last day. After our breakfast, we walked the beach and saw where a giant Leatherback turtle came ashore over night to nest and return to the sea. Then noticed a baby Leatherback trying to make its way to sea. What an experience for the kids and us, right out the back door of Casa Mandarina! Thanks Nova, Marjolet, Marcia and Oscar! Barton Family, North Carolina USA"

  • Love this place!

    "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! Rebecca"
