"After two trips for two weeks each to this amazing refuge I can sit back and think of all the great memories of this extraordinary place with happiness. Fresh warm ocean air blowing thru the treetops as we looked out over the canopy from the open top floor of the treehouse, watching the iguana's in the jungle floor below eat fresh fruit, nitetimes looking out at the starts thru the floor to ceiling glass walls in our master bedroom, and relaxing in the hammock reading with the sounds of the jungle in the background. The house had everything we needed and is well cared for, and is private and spacious.
The country itself is welcoming, costa rican's are warm friendly people, and their are also the interesting expats who have figured out how to make a life down there running the local great restaurants.
We spent many days on the beaches, surfing, swimming, soaking up the sun, and side trips up to the hotsprings, volcano's, and offshore fishing.
This playa negra area is away from the overbuilt overtouristy (which are about an hour's drive away at Tamarindo)
and is much more to our liking, there is so much to explore, I can't wait to get back again."

"We stayed at Casa Genesha with our two younger children (ages 12 and 10), our adult son and his girlfriend (twenty somethings). The house is beautifully designed with a perfect balance of outdoor spaces to enjoy the surrounding environment and comfortable indoor accommodations. Hitting the beach in the morning (short walk) and them relaxing in the pool was great. Playa Negra is a renowned surfing beach, and it lived up to its reputation. Sandy Beach just a minute walk away was great for the non surfers. The small village of Los Pargos was a pleasant surprise with some great dining choices.
There are limitless opportunities for adventure in Costa Rica. We chose to drive a few hours up to the Rincon De La Vieja park for a riding, tubing, and zip lining tour which as superb. A drive south to the surfing outpost of Marbella was also a lot of fun.
Judy the manager was terrific - very friendly and helpful.
This house was perfect for our family!"

"Casa Ventana has everything you need for a very comfortable stay in lovely Playa Negra. The kitchen is clean, large and well equipped. The ac is chilly. There is plenty of hot water. The house has a satellite tv and speedy wifi. The pool is pretty and was always the perfect temperature. The house has a large wrap-around porch which was the perfect place to enjoy the spectacular ocean views, flawless sunsets and cooling breezes. Every time we pulled into the driveway we remarked how much we loved our cute sea-side casa. It felt like home. Mary (the manager), the maintenance staff, the cleaning staff and the security team were excellent. We felt very safe and well cared for. Highly recommended!"

"My family stayed here last week. My kids are 7 and 11. We had such an amazing experience. The pool alone was used at least twice per day for probably 4 hours. We would explore the beach just steps from the house in the morning and afternoon. The kids loved playing with the hermit crabs that are everywhere. The beaches are so much fun, with boogie boarding, surfing, and just playing in the waves. We also would love to sit on the porch and watch the surfers get walloped by the big sets rolling in. The house is super, with a/c units in each room to keep everybody comfortable. The bedrooms are layed our really well, with an awesome bunk room for the kids. When not exploring, we watched TV and worked on internet. Although we cooked several meals in the kitchen, we also went to many of the nearby food joints, and they were fantastic. This is a great house for surfers for sure, but also for families that want a great place to enjoy an awesome beach vacation."
