  • Second time staying at Casa Sylmar

    "All I can say is this place is amazing. Beautiful home on private beach with excellent owners that work hard to make your vacation exceptional. I can't imagine going to Costa Rica and staying anywhere else after having stayed here twice now. You will love this place. We'll be going back again!"

  • Excellent stay

    "This property was clean and well maintained. The pictures of the condo on VRBO are exactly what you see when you arrive there. The pools was beautiful and we saw a lot of monkey and parrots. It was a great location with walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. Excellent security - the staff was very friendly and helpful. The management was always supportive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this condo. Thank you for wonderful vacation."

  • Beautiful place and extraordinary gracious owners.

    "We had the pleasure to stay with Gary & Jolene for ten days and rented both of the casitas. The are truly spectacular and both very unique. My wife and I stayed in the one with the private backyard garden oasis and we let our kids have the one overlooking the pool. We were very happy with both of the casitas and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a romantic getaway. The casitas are just a short walk to the beach and downtown Tamarindo. We did not get a rental car during our stay and one is really not needed due to the location of this property. Brooks took the kids spearfishing one day and offshore fishing another day. I would highly recommend both as Brooks is a fantastic guide. Maria cooks the most wonderful breakfast Monday-Friday! The banana pancakes are to die for. Our only regret was we did not get to spend more time with Gary & Jolene as they are truly wonderful and special people."

  • blissful, beautiful and private!

    "The pictures of the house do not begin to do it justice. You walk in to a lovely panoramic view of a 2 story high living room with stunning wooden ceiling and 2 story glass windows on either side of the house. The master bedroom is lovely with a wall of glass and private patio looking out on a view of the ocean and mountains. The master shower is a luxuriously large glass shower. The kitchen is suitable for a serious cook. It has almost every cooking dish and utensil you can think of and a few spices. Outside there is a sink, gas grill and pizza oven. The house is kept very clean by the maid who showed up for us Mon-Sat. We didn't notice any bugs inside the house (very important since I saw reviews of other houses where bugs were a problem). The pool was also well kept with little to no odor of chlorine. The location of the house is great since it is up on a hill and gets a good breeze. After a long hot day, the pool is nice and cool with that breeze and there's nothing nicer than relaxing by the pool and taking in the stunning view. Another appealing feature of this house is the Blue Water Properties Concierge Service. They were very helpful by recommending the best restaurants, shopping, sightseeing and tours so we didn't have to waste any time hunting around. There is a beach (beautiful with very few people) close by (maybe 1km?) along with a little restaurant on the beach. But most of the shopping, restaurants and grocery stores are about 20 minutes away. The concierge service also arranged a cook for us on the last night. The food was fabulous. She did a great job and it was the perfect ending for our trip. If you need a broadband connection, I did a speedtest and it was about 286KB/100KB. This means that your emails and wifi calling will work fine, but streaming videos or gaming is highly doubtful. Although 2 of our party were able to get low quality video skype working. We did see a group of howler monkeys. They didn't bother us at all, and the wall of windows in almost every room allowed us to take some very close up photos without scaring them off. The other visitors we enjoyed every morning and evening were martins. There was an array of beautiful birds that we thoroughly enjoyed. The house is private, secure and quiet inside of a gated community. I highly recommend this house and Blue Water Properties in general."

Guanacaste Travel Tips

Guanacaste Beach Rentals Give You the Real Costa Rica

If you are looking for long summer days on beautiful coastlines, Guanacaste beach rentals are for you. Vacations in Costa Rica can be filled with activities, sun, and sand. Enjoy the stunning shoreline, top-notch surfing, snorkeling, and so much more when you stay at Guanacaste resorts. The province is the perfect vacation destination for the whole family or the ideal spot for a romantic honeymoon.

Breathtaking Vistas within the Guanacaste Resorts Regions

All along the eastern borders of the province you will find a chain of volcanoes, many of which are visible from some Guanacaste beach rentals. The volcanoes meet the Cordillera de Tilaran and Cordillera de Guanacaste mountain ranges and offer plenty of hiking, mountain biking, and other high elevation activities. The views in this region are particularly breathtaking, especially when you reach Rincon de la Vieja Volcano Area with its lush forests filled with exotic plants and animals. No one ever said vacations in Costa Rica would not be gorgeous!

Vacations in Costa Rica Offer a Little Culture

As you plan your stay in Guanacaste resorts, you might appreciate learning a little bit about the local culture. The region is rich in culture and even takes its name from the word “quahnacaztlan” which is actually the word for the Guanacaste tree in the native language. This tree also happens to be the national tree of the country. Vacations here, especially those at Guanacaste beach rentals, will allow you the opportunity to see what the real Costa Rica is all about.

The Best Way to Reach Your Guanacaste Beach Rentals

Because it is a foreign country, vacations in Costa Rica do take some planning. The easiest way to reach Guanacaste resorts is to fly into Liberia and land at the Daniel Oduber International Airport. From the airport, you may either rent a car or take a bus through Guanacaste up the Pan-American Highway which is quite scenic. You will even catch a glimpse of the volcanoes on your way.
