"When we were searching for options for our honeymoon, we considered resorts, traditional hotels, and private homes. We were SO HAPPY we made this choice. The house was in a great location, very private and quiet, and had everything we needed for a romantic honeymoon + days trips for adventures. We used the awesome pool every afternoon. Thanks goodness for the AC as it was 90+ every day! We ventured out to Llanos de Cortez (waterfall), Playa Carbon (black sand beach), Playa Flamingo (non-touristy, non surfing beach), played golf several times (Four Seasons, Conchal, and Pinilla), had an estuary tour, and of course, took the water taxi to Tamarindo Beach. If you like a surfer vibe - you'll love Tamarindo. If you like a great beach tiki bar, you'll love Lola's. Be sure to go to try the Mango Jalapeno Margarita's at RipJack's and the Sunday night BBQ at Seven. As the other reviewers have mentioned, Mike stops by every morning to clean the pool. If you are up early he is very willing to share tips and ideas for getting the most out of your Costa Rica vacation. The ONLY downside is the dirt road to get into Playa Grande. Very bumpy and rutted."

"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."

"Large and spacious home with well detailed kitchen. Great open and comfortable floor plan looks out over the beach and ocean. Property is very versatile with several bedrooms on main level - so disabled individuals can have a lovely get away. Excellent spot to serve as a central location for exploration (will need a car or car service - tour group). For those that like to walk or hike you can definitely get to restaurants and some of the other villages such as Tamarindo.
Owners are very reachable and accommodating. Great to people! I would love to go back."
