  • Second time staying at Casa Sylmar

    "All I can say is this place is amazing. Beautiful home on private beach with excellent owners that work hard to make your vacation exceptional. I can't imagine going to Costa Rica and staying anywhere else after having stayed here twice now. You will love this place. We'll be going back again!"

  • Another fabulous memory

    "My family and I just returned for our 6th trip to Costa Rica and our 3rd stay at Casa Serena. It was again our home in Playa Grande. We are so comfortable there. Originally the house was booked during the week we wanted, so we rearranged everything so we could be at this house. I realized that the reason we love it so much is that except for sleeping, life is outdoors. We can be inside at home. In paradise, outdoors is where one wants to be. There have been a number of wonderful upgrades including the new fridge and microwave which are great. For our purposes, the hammock and swing chairs were a big hit. The waves were excellent and Nova and Heinze made our trip memorable as usual with their added personal attention. I can't recommend Casa Serena enough if you are looking to love nature, surfing and perfect sunsets."

  • First Time/Forever Fans

    "This was our first time in Costa Rica. We enjoyed every minute of our relaxing vacation and found it hard to leave. The home was inviting and staff from the surf shop were so friendly and very helpful. Marcos was so friendly and asked us everyday what we were going to do and gave us suggestions that made our stay even more enjoyable. Thank you Marcos! The home is very comfortable and has everything we needed. The porch provided many star gazing opportunities and a wonderful breakfast setting. The shooting stars, howling monkeys, local bird species singing and a cool breeze made it so relaxing. When the wind died down we could hear the ocean. The thing we embraced was the Pure Vida life. Walking the beach every day at least twice and exploring the surrounding area was fantastic. We ventured to many beaches and thoroughly enjoyed having our own vehicle. The roads were good (sometimes adventurous) and we found that people drove carefully, unlike our Dominican Republic experience. The local restaurants each had their own unique style but all of them had wonderful wait staff and very good food. Huerto's Pizza is exceptional and Eric at Rip Jack Inn restaurant was one of our favorite waiters. The food is always amazing. Try the hot garlic shrimp. We wish we didn't wait for the last night to try it. Take time to talk to people and you will find them to be a likable and inviting community. Ian, Corryne and their boy Finnegan were all so charming and easy going. We thank you so much for providing a home in the middle of paradise. We enjoyed it and needed the time a way. We look forward to making Costa Rica our future vacation destination for years to come. We want to share it with everyone. God bless you all at Frijoles Loco!"

  • 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!"

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.
