  • Amazing location for an authentic Costa Rica beach experience

    "Our family of 12 (6 kids aged between 13 and 7, 3 couples) spent Christmas at Playa Garza. The house was perfect for our needs: comfortable, friendly, a great beachfront garden with outdoor shower and unique direct access to a beautiful beach. I was nervous about the sleeping arrangements but it worked out perfectly: 4 girls slept in a room with 2 queen beds, the 2 boys slept on bunks adjacents to the living room, and then there were 3 rooms for the couples that included the owner’s apartment which had a balcony, TV, fabulous view of the ocean. The house has a lot of character, it is nicely decorated and is well appointed for cooking, and feeling at home. The bathrooms worked well, there was hot water, and were very nicely finished (2 full baths in the main house that we were sharing among 2 families of 5, and the apartment had its own bathroom). Eliza and Greta the housekeepers were unbelievably helpful (I speak a bit of spanish), kept the house clean, prepared us some lunch and dinners and even prepared fish that my sister in law caught earlier in the day with Eliza's brother. Before we arrived Ginger did the groceries for us, it is important to specify sizes as most items are purchased in large size. We did not run out of food! It was awesome, no shopping while we were there. The location of the house is in the center of Garza, a fishing village of 100 people. The main road is right by the entrance and there are neighbors and ambient village noises. Across the street there is a small corner store, a church, a bar and a little place where you can get Vitamix made juices. So it was the real Costa Rican village experience, we loved it, we were not looking for seclusion in a golf course. A 10 minutes drive away from there was the Nosara Yoga Institute, surfing at Playa Guyones with Agua Tibias (these guys took all 10 of us surfing everyday), zip lining with Miss Skynopy, and the exceptional Nosara Monkey Refuge (you need an appointment to see baby monkeys rescued by Brenda Bombard). Amazing, amazing vacation. To top it all, Ginger coordinated for us fireworks on Christmas day -- the most beautiful fireworks on the beach!"

  • Beautiful Condo & Great Host

    "5 adults and 2 young children spent a week in this condo and the accommodations were superb. We enjoyed the ocean view, the nature right outside our door, and the amenities of the resort. The owner went beyond what we expected in helping us get comfortable and was available for assistance. The free shuttles to the pool & ocean area were easy to arrange through the concierge. In all activities we did, inside & outside the resort, the service was superb. I'd highly recommend this condo & resort to anyone looking for the comfort of a home while on vacation."

  • Great House

    "We really enjoyed the stay at Casa de las Olas. It was in the perfect location...being so close to the beach, and just out of the noise and traffic of Tamarindo, but yet close enough to walk down for dinner or other activities. My three year old loved the hammocks, outdoor showers and futon for watching TV. The wife thinks that with the included bikes, that we don't need to rent a car next time. That remains to be determined. Best vacation in a long time. Definitely will be returning."

  • Retirement is an Option

    "My wife and I decided to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in Costa Rica and we were not disappointed. The Condo overlooks the bay and from sunrise to sunset it is a picturesque sight. The temperatures hit 40 degrees while we were there, but the air conditioners kept the condo a cool place to escape the heat when necessary. The closeness of restaurants to the condo was a plus but I advise visitors to rent a vehicle if you want to see sights...but if your looking for downtime with sun and peace/quiet you can't find anywhere better. We will be going back soon...it was that much fun!!!"
