Recent Playa Grande reviews
Great house, pool, owner, and location!
"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."

"We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Very comfortable and had most amenities that we needed. Nir was so helpful and really nice. When we had a problem with the refrigerator he had it fixed as soon as possible and supplied us with a cooler until it was fixed. It was just a short walk to the beautiful beach and the pool was refreshing when we were at the house. This was our first time in Costa Rica and we had an awesome vacation. I would highly recommend it! An overall great experience and we would stay here again when we return."

"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!"

"This property was perfect...it had all the amenities such as A/C, fans, hot water, pool, outdoor covered patio, fully stocked kitchen, king beds, laundry, etc
We always seek privacy, which this has, and to be close to the beach (10 minute leisurely walk). You can't really get much closer than that in this area. You are in walking distance to the mini-market and several restaurants. It is a very private location.
It was super easy to arrange rental agreement and check in. The owner and property manager were always timely in their communications.
We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return! Both the house and the property are beautiful!
Nicole & Joe"
