  • Truly Awe Inspiring Sunset Views

    "What a fantastic property! The group I was with, 20 in all, were split between Casa Playa Blanca and another property. My family had the pleasure of staying the first week here and 5 days at the other house but I wish we would've only stayed at Casa Playa Blanca. Both houses were very nice beach front homes but the combination of the house, staff and location of Casa Playa Blanca was unbeatable! The beach is perfect for all ages with waves big enough for a good boogie board ride and the silkiest sand I've ever had between my toes. It was a great vacation and we can't wait to return to Casa Playa Blanca."

  • Amazing secluded beach getaway with all the comforts of home!

    "My husband and I were so thrilled that casa que pasa was available for our last minute vacation. We needed a week of rest and relaxation on a beach - and we got that and much more! The house is beautiful, with a fantastic kitchen which offers an amazing view of the jungle as you cook. Everything was clean and bright, and the bed was super comfortable. The balcony overlooking the walk to the beach is a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, evening wine, and to spot the monkey family. We decided to try surfing, so we rented a few boards from a surf school down the road. The 1 min walk to the beach made it extremely convenient for us to go surfing 2 times a day. The beach is fantastic for beginner surfers - no rocks or coral, easy waves (and some harder ones if you're an expert). After our morning surf we would walk to the estuary to get a boat ride into Tamarindo (for $1). We'd head home, have a nap, surf again, and then head out to one of the local restaurants within walking distance. Casa Que Pasa has everything - the comforts of home, beach, jungle, restaurants, and a little grocery store all within walking distance. In short, it was a perfect getaway and we can't wait to return!"

  • Great condo overlooking beautiful beach and town!

    "Joe and Mark, Thank you so much for accommodating us during our stay at your condo! We had an absolutely wonderful time in Samara, and would recommend that anyone visit this hidden gem in Costa Rica. When we decided to vacation in Costa Rica, we were hoping to find an area where we could relax by the ocean and also experience Costa Rican culture. Samara was perfect. Despite the idyllic beauty of the town and beach, Samara has not been overrun by the tourist industry that has captured many other coastal regions. Rather, it maintains the quaint charm of a small beach village. While we enjoyed several great meals at the various restaurants along the beach and throughout the town, the beach was easily the highlight of our trip to Samara. The water was so warm and pleasant, and the waves were large enough to surf but certainly not overbearing. We also rented an ocean kayak and paddled out to the island that can be seen in the photos. From there, we saw an incredible view of the Rich Coast of the country. Indeed, Samara is a special place. Your condo was the perfect accommodation for our trip to Samara. Tucked up on a hill overlooking the beach, we had unbelievable views of ocean and the short, dramatic, entertaining lightning storms in the early evenings. Also, as it was such a short walk to the beach (5 minutes) and town (under 10 minutes), the condo really is in an ideal location. The condo itself was everything we could have asked for. All rooms were very clean, the bed and furniture were comfortable, and there were plenty of places to sit and take in the vista through the panoramic windows. All utilities (including the coffee maker) worked fine, and there was plenty of storage space for food, clothing, and other items. Also, we were pleasantly surprised to find the vast, and impressively up-to-date, DVD collection! We were truly sad to leave Samara, and we intend to return. When we do, we would love to use your condo again. While the condo was perfect for our needs, what made our experience better was the service. Both of you (Joe and Mark) could not have been more helpful and pleasant while we planned our stay. Also, the property manager and staff at the condominium property were very attentive, kind, and accommodating. For anyone travelling to Guanacaste, I would highly recommend that they consider Samara as a destination and that they stay in your condo. I am sure that they will not be disappointed. Gracias por todo, y pura vida!"

  • Great House!

    "We loved the place, easy access, near everywhere and full amenities. We have stayed many times in Nosara, but this one has been one of the greatest. The place is private, no need to share the pool or common areas with other guests. And the Bajaj is incredible, an extra value for a great stay. Maybe at beginning the fact that you can see cameras in all the outside areas made us free like a big brother like sensation, but you get used to them. We were familiar with the area but I am sure that Dave and Eduardo would do anything you need to get the best experience. We will come back soon!"
