"9 of us went to Playa Grande for 9 days. 5 of them being teenagers. Everyone loved everything about this house. We can not wait to go back. We try to go on a different vacation every year, but this one will certainly be a repeat. The owner is east to work with and the caretakers are great. The waves were only a 3 minute walk for all of our surfers and boogey boarders. Next door is a great restaurant Seven and a small convenience store that has everything you could possibly need."

"When I say beach front I mean BEACH FRONT! The private beach is only a few yards from the house! We stayed here July 2015 and couldn't have asked for anything better. The house is comfortable and every bedroom has its own bath. We hardly saw anyone on the beach, only surfers out in the water. They do offer surf lessons right in front of the house for a minimal cost which we did and had a blast. Tamarindo is a short walk down the beach and a one minute boat ride across the inlet. The house was clean and kept up. Monkeys inhabit the trees in the front yard which we got to see. The pool is a good size and well maintained. I would totally recommend this location for your Costa Rica getaway! The only negative I would say is that the road in front of the house is less to be desired ( in other words, have good shocks!) but everything else makes up for that!"

"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!"

"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."
