  • Exceeded High Expectations

    "We spent a week with our children and grandchildren in this incredible villa which easily accommodated our group of 15. Maids, which came daily, kept the place spotless. We hired Tuto and Florie to cook suppers for us. The meals, which included hors d'oeuvres, salad, and desert, were excellent and cost about half as much as we would have paid in a restaurant. Usually enough food for lunch was left over. Our kids loved the large pool."

  • Another fabulous memory

    "My family and I just returned for our 6th trip to Costa Rica and our 3rd stay at Casa Serena. It was again our home in Playa Grande. We are so comfortable there. Originally the house was booked during the week we wanted, so we rearranged everything so we could be at this house. I realized that the reason we love it so much is that except for sleeping, life is outdoors. We can be inside at home. In paradise, outdoors is where one wants to be. There have been a number of wonderful upgrades including the new fridge and microwave which are great. For our purposes, the hammock and swing chairs were a big hit. The waves were excellent and Nova and Heinze made our trip memorable as usual with their added personal attention. I can't recommend Casa Serena enough if you are looking to love nature, surfing and perfect sunsets."

  • Our Own Personal Paradise

    "This review is WAY overdue (sorry Stephan)! Let me start of by saying that all communications with Stephan before our travels were great! The Owner, Stephan, was easy to reach and quick to answers our questions. The reservation process was also simple and easy. We rented Casa Iguana for 12 nights. The home and property was very well kept. The house itself was the perfect size for myself, husband and our 10 year old. Everything was there that we required or needed- even a blender to make smoothies with the fresh bananas and star fruit we picked! The grocery store was a 5 minute walk out the front gate- super convenient. The walk to the beach was also a five minute walk. This walk took you to the side gate (with security lock) that opened to the public access walkway to the beach. It was perfect for my husband who wanted to run up and check the surf several times a day! The wi-fi was actually TOO GOOD! We had fully expected to drop off the grid for two weeks! But, there it was, great wi-fi and the ability to make our Facebook friends jealous of the paradise we had found. Marta, the property concierge, was friendly, funny and helpful when we had questions or needed to find someone to take us fishing. The cleaning clue did a great job on their every other day visits. And maintenance replied promptly to the minor issue we had. We are hoping to return to the property...maybe bring friends and rent Casa Ying Yang! Thanks again Stephan, Marta and Hector!"

  • Papagayo Perfection!

    "Our family just spent a week at this house with another family (10 people), and it couldn't have been better. The house is exactly as it appears in the pictures, but with better sunset views. Everything was immaculate and it was laid out well for our group. Great central location on the peninsula with easy golf cart rides to the private beach club, golf club house, and Four Seasons. Kids loved watching the monkeys and parrots from the pool deck. Many beaches to choose from and all kid friendly for swimming and snorkeling. The house managers and staff are wonderful and helped us make all our reservations, book private chef, plan exciting excursions, book sitters, transportation, etc... Everything went very smoothly with their help. Even if you aren't a big golfer, play this course. It is spectacularly beautiful. Costa Rica is a special place with wonderful people. We used to vacation in Mexico often, but the extra hour on the plane is well worth it. We will be back....soon I hope."
