  • A-MAZ-ING

    "I can't say enough about our wonderful vacation to Costa Rica and the fabulous experience with Casa Ola Perfecta. Not only is the house and location perfect, you get a fabulous friend in Mary to help with your every need. We spent the majority of our time at "sandy beach" with the kiddos (ages 4, 7 & 9) while my sweet husband was able to surf the much raved about Playa Negra break several times a day, every day. I could relax on the gorgeous beach while watching the kids play in the gentle surf AND watch my husband catch some great rides just 200 yards away. Perfection!! One afternoon the kids and I swam while watching my husband surf. Yep, that's right. We watched him catch wave after wave from the amazing infinity pool. The house is gorgeous, the view is out of this world and the outdoor kitchen and pool were heavenly! The town is small but we enjoyed that. We weren't looking for a bustling tourist town. We loved the bread/pastry truck and fish truck that come straight to your door. No need to leave town. Mary's recommendations were spot on. We attempted a meal out at a place not on her list of recommendations and we were sadly let down. Lesson learned ... Listen to Mary! The guards at the gate were super friendly and never once did we not feel safe. The house was very family friendly and had lots of board games and even an Xbox for the kids. We can't think of one negative point to mention other than 8 nights just wasn't long enough! ;) We can't wait to come back again to Costa Rica and Casa OP. Pura Vida!! Top fav local points to mention: Restaurant Latinos (Patacones!!) Gelato at Playa Negra Hotel Custom made bikinis by Marvel Restaurant Buena Vida (great pizza!!)"

  • Wow!

    "What a great vacation home and location! Great beaches abound near by. Fantastic beach combing right in front. Spectacular views. Very comfortable. We were worried about the small pool. But it was perfect. Just a quick dip to cool off then back into a lounge chair. A bigger pool is unnecessary. Also close to great zip lining, fishing, cruises, and other adventures. Lots of great restaurants also close by; from pizza to lunch on the beach to fine french dining (Villa Deveena). Jarrod and Meaghan, the managers, are unbelievable hosts. The pictures don't do it justice. I couldn't recommend it more highly."

  • The Best!!

    "This was my 6th trip to Costa Rica, and Rancho Playa Negra is the best place to be, and Casa Luna de Miel is the best home to be in. It's luxury living in a beautiful, quiet, secluded part of the world. The house is better than the pictures, beautifully furnished and very secure. Our sunset horseback ride began at our house; we visited the community of Guaitil, with its amazing pottery, after a 40 minute drive of spectacular beauty. The local restaurants are wonderful (arroz con pollo was my favorite), with offerings to satisfy anyone's taste. Tamarindo is a nearby city for lunch and good shopping (but too "busy" to stay in). Jarrod and Meaghan are terrific down-to-earth hosts who are always available to answer questions and offer advice. We spent a lot of time at this incredible house, walking the beautiful grounds of Rancho Playa Negra, and it's beaches and tidal pools. We left totally relaxed, and looking forward to returning next year to another perfect week!"

  • Perfect getaway house near prime beaches

    "This was our third trip to Costa Rica and our first in Playa Negra. Casa Ventana del Mar was by far the nicest place we've ever stayed, and now we're wondering how soon we can come back to it! My husband is a lifelong surfer, and the break in front of the hotel did not disappoint. The house welcomes you home with a nice outdoor shower (two more in the house), a lovely pool, great for watching the sunset while staying cool, and lovely views from the upper patio. There are intriguing tidepools just beyond the house, and 180-degree ocean views with nothing between you and the ocean! The photos almost don't do the house justice. Within the house, the open concept of the modern kitchen and living room made for lounging comfort while preparing dinner. There is a guestbook full of great information on everything from restaurants to shopping. The bedroom AC made sleeping easy even on the hottest of nights and beds were comfy (plenty of pillows, too - important for us!). The house was well provisioned! Little amenities such as the cooler and plenty of ice made it easy for us to take picnics on our beach explorations. A lot of thought went into providing Casa guests well appointed and there's nothing I'd add. I also loved that the stove was gas - ideal for serious cooks. The blender got a workout - fruit stands in Tamarindo provided the stuff of delicious tropical drinks enjoyed on the patio! Lastly, the privacy factor was great. In the rancho, this house is on the far north out of the fray of passerby on their way to the beach. It was always private and we appreciate the added security of the house when we were away. Thank you for thinking of everything, and to Mary/Brenda of Beach Grass Rentals for their added hospitality arriving/departing."
