"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."

AMAZING!!! GREAT VACATION HOUSE & TOWN WITH LOTS TO DO !!!
"This house is fabulous .... open concept with loads of room for the whole family.
Our family of 5 has rented many different upscale vacation rentals over the years and this without question was our favorite by far... The views of the ocean from every room are amazing, we woke up early every morning to listen and watch the families of howler monkeys around the neighborhood and we really enjoyed all the different wildlife and nature this region of the world has to offer.
Mary-Ellen and Shane were great to deal with ... lots of communication prior to, during and after the trip to answer all of questions and provide us with beneficial insight and information about the house, the gated community and the region around it.
Thanks Mary-Ellen and Shane .... this was our family's favorite vacation :-)

"We stayed at Casa Verano from Dec 21 - 28 with our two young kids and the grand parents; there were six of us in total. The location was perfect; less than a 10 minute walk from the beach. Far enough away from all of the nightime noise (only noise coming from the American neighbours who played Christmas music all day). The house has all of the amenities needed; the pool was great to have when the sun was just too much at mid-day. Samara is an amazing city; people are so nice, and so laid back. A couple of things that I recommend are the Samara Trails tour (Alvaro is the best guide I've ever experienced); Samara Organics; Luv Burger (great vegan food, and best beer!); Oso Loco for movie nights, coffee and curry."

"We just came back from our trip to Playa Hermosa yesterday. The condo is exactly as described. It is spacious, clean, and great location. Our family of 4 had more than enough room to spread out! Playa Hermosa is a small beach town. We went in July (rainy/low season) and were often alone on the beach even over a Costa Rican "school break" weekend. Johan was very responsive and his group in Playa Hermosa is on call if you need them. I accidentally locked up our things in the safe and couldn't get it open. They were over within 5 minutes to help me out.
Hope we can visit again!"
