  • Surfer's Paradise

    "I just got home from my 10 day stay at Casa Marina and had a wonderful time. I went with my wife, our 1 year old daughter, and my sister and her boyfriend. Marina arranged our airport transportation since we didn't want to rent a car. The driver had an nice van with A/C and a cooler full of cold drinks for the hour ride to Playa Grande. He even let us stop at the store on the way to stock up on groceries. Marina greeted us at the property and gave us the quick tour. The two rooms are very nice, clean, and spacious. The pool and the yard are beautiful. Within about 2 hours we were completely settled. Half our group was relaxing by the pool and the other half were sitting on cheaply rented longboards ($100ea for the 10 day stay from a local surf camp) catching perfect warm water waves and watching the sun set over the Pacific. Over the next 10 days we surfed twice a day, every day. The beach is literally a 100 or maybe 150 yard walk at the most. Their pool is warm because it has a dark bottom and absorbs heat from the sun. I've been in other pools in Costa Rica and Nicaragua with white bottoms that are too cold to hang out in. The restaurants close by in Palm Beach Estates (all less than a 5 minute walk) were all very good. The convenience/grocery store (also less than 5 minutes) has EVERYTHING at totally reasonable prices. We took a $20 round trip cab ride into Playa Grande for dinner 2 other nights. Sunday Night Sushi at one of them was excellent. All in all, we had a wonderful time at Casa Marina. I don't think there's a better "bang for the buck" place to stay in Playa Grande. If you're looking for a good place to stay on a surf trip, you've found it. We didn't do any of the other tours (estuary tour, ziplines, white water rafting, volcano tours, etc) but I've heard they're all fun as well. We basically woke up at sunrise, surfed for 2-3 hours, relaxed by the pool the rest of the day and surfed again 2-3 hours until the sun set and started getting dark. We'll definitely be going back!"

  • Far Tortuga…paradise!

    "This house is simply perfect! I am so glad the owners share their little slice of paradise! It is perfectly situated in the middle of the island of Roatan with a grocery store nearby to prepare great meals in the awesome kitchen with views that don’t quit. There are also great restaurants nearby if you don’t feel like cooking. The buoy out front is a dive spot for the island businesses that you get to enjoy at your leisure. We snorkeled twice a day from the dock and were amazed by the beauty. The property is managed by a superb local company, Blue Reef, who are at your disposal for anything you may need. If you are looking for peace and quiet and a vacation you’ll never forget, choose Far Tortuga. Prepare yourself to never want to leave!!"

  • A slice of paradise, what a gem this place is you are as close to the beach as you can get!

    "We had an amazing time and the owner Keith was a pleasure to work with, making sure we had everything we needed for a relaxing incredible getaway. The home is nicley appointed and the views are the best, the master bedroom faces the ocean we had one of the most restful nights sleep, you can hear the waves while you sleep! This home has it all, if you want to stay in and cook or there's also a menu you can order and they deliver to your table and several great restaurants within walking distance, Flamingo beach is one of the loveliest in Costa Rica you can also have massages by the shore or go fishing, surfing or paddle boarding, it was our first time and we loved it! It is a Perfect place for a romantic getaway or family vacation there's just so much to see. There's also a great staff to assist with anything you need, you will not be not be disappointed when you choose this amazing beach condo there's so much room and it's so private, our only complaint was it was not long enough we will have to go back again! Thanks Keith for sharing your lovely home with us we enjoyed so much."

  • Fabulous Tamarindo / Fabulous Condo

    "My friends and I stayed at this condo from 3/1 through 3/8 and would highly recommend to to anyone. The location is great (right in the middle of restaurants and shopping. We intended to do several adventure activities (which you can book right next door), but once we got there and saw the location and the POOL we opted for more of a relaxing vacation. The beach which is right across the street is wide and long, and a wonderful place to camp out for a day. This really was a comfortable home away from home. We would recommend this condo to anyone who was interested in coming to Tamarindo and we will be back."
