Paradise for our large group

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 17 friends rented Casa Del Mar and Casa Sylmar for the week and we could not have been any happier. We rent a home in a different state/country every year, and this location is unbeatable -- No pictures will ever do this place justice, and the sunsets are extraordinary. The homes are in incredible shape and had everything we would could ever need, from beach chairs to towels to an outdoor barbecue and extra coolers for drinks-- not to mention the amazing staff that would clean the homes daily and set up our beach chairs each morning. The owners Greg and Gabriela, and their daughter Daniella were always available if we needed them, and so helpful with booking our excursions, making sure we had ice and water stocked at the house everyday and giving us the best recommendations for local restaurants and places to visit -- it's never easy to plan for 17 adults, but they made it seem effortless. We definitely recommend the all day adventure tour, and of course the massages on the Oceanfront terrace! For the price we paid and the service/location we got -- it was a steal! I cannot say enough about these homes and the people who make this place run everyday -- we were so lucky to have been able to spend the week, wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you to the owners and the staff, we hope to come back again!

What A Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for a better location, right on the beach and truly a fantastic view so peaceful. The water is wonderfully warm and clear. We had usage of Greg and Daniella's personal home, it is awesomely appointed throughout. They have an excellent staff who made our stay seamless as we felt right at home. We enjoyed cocktails and conversation with Greg and Daniella who felt more like long time friends than landlords. We plan on returning and look forward in sharing a pitcher of margaritas!

Truely right on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sylmar is a very nice, safe and quiet place right on the beach! The house is very nice and was perfect for all 11 of us. The beach is a perfect, gradual sloping, fine white sand heaven. Greg, Gabriela and staff are very attentive and Daniella will set up all of your excursions. We should have booked 2 weeks!

Best Rental Experience in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We previously stayed at Casa Del Mar, which is also very nice, but Casa Sylmar is definitely a 5-star experience. First, the location: Oceanfront on beautiful Playa Grande. If you are a surfer, the house is steps from one of the best breaks in the country. Or, if you just like to swim, boogie board, walk the beach or see sea turtles, this is also the place to come. The house is in a very quiet area - although Playa Grande has a few good restaurants and bars, they are a bit of a walk from the house. If you want the club scene, you can drive about 30 minutes to Tamarindo.

Second, the house: The property is in simply outstanding condition. We had four couples, and some of us are very picky about our accommodations. Nothing to worry about here - each couple had a beautiful bedroom and bath for privacy. One of the many great things about Casa Sylmar is that it can be configured in 2-4 bedrooms on each side of the duplex. The kitchen is fully equipped and was wonderful for cooking group meals. We usually ate meals on the porch to enjoy the spectacular ocean view. While it was hot in February, the shaded porch and breeze made eating outside very comfortable.

Third, the first rate service: And I do mean first rate! Greg and Gabriela respond promptly to any email questions and essentially function as a concierge (there is excellent internet service in the house). For example, they will arrange trips and provide tips on everything from grocery shopping to banking. And, unlike most house rentals where you need to contact a property manager for assistance, Miriam and Nicho, who live next door, tend to all your needs - from house cleaning to getting fresh fish for dinner. There is an outdoor grill that is always spotless, and I highly recommend using it for amazing fresh seafood. What else can I say? My wife and I have stayed at numerous houses and condos in Costa Rica - this is simply the best!

Love affair with Playa Grande and Casa Sylmar

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year in a row staying at one of Greg and Gabriela's beautiful homes. We have already reserved a stay for next year. The home is beautiful, location could not be better. They helped us rent a car and saw to our every need. We had massages right on our front porch, the best.

This location is safe, Nicho and Miriam saw to our every need. No complaints whatsoever, only the highest praises for Casa Sylmar and Playa Grande.

Toes in Sand with Drink in Hand

  • 5 of 5

OK, get your "bucket list" out and put this at the top: "Casa Sylmar, Playa Grande" :: Paradise Found! :: Circle up as long a stay as you can manage because it simply goes from better to best :: Our one piddly week the Ides of February 2016 was not near long enough (we booked Winter 2017 while there) ::

Now improve on this if you can: You are ON the world's cleanest white-sand beach (no trash, no kelp, no campers, no seaweed, no dune buggies), with only palm trees between your terrace and gently sloping beach to the constant, soothing surf that is of a perfect temperature ::

Here are some significant NOs: no rain, no bugs, no humidity, no anxiety, no hassle, no stress, no sense of time ( it is either night with more stars than you ever thought you could view [get the free Astronomy app for your phone] or it is day with beautiful weather, ideal temperature, and comforting on-shore breeze), no people (there are only about seven homes on the entire Playa) :: There are some surfers a couple hundred yards to your left near a good taco shack, and Rip Jack Restaurant is another hundred yards thataway but set back from the beach itself :: Rip Jack has delicious dishes from a menu that is varied and inventive; breakfast, lunch, and dinner :: I mean, really, you're not here to do a lot of prepping, cooking, and clean-up; you are on VA-CA-SHUN -- get away from the drudge ::

I won't spend a lot of verbiage on the interior -- it is all as it should be; sumptuous, good spacious design, terrific structure, airy, lovely details, very nicely appointed, daily maid service, privacy, total security, etc :: Other reviews provide more detail but you won't be inside much anyway except to freshen your drink :: Do please read the other reviews and note that they all award Casa Sylmar a 5-Star ranking, and deservedly so ::

One hour from Liberia airport and indeed it is Toes in Sand with Drink in Hand, awaiting that glorious, awe inducing sunset ::
