About Dana Puckett

Bruce & Dana Puckett

We have built Casa Veranera in 2007 and moved to Costa Rica from California to enjoy still untouched beautiful beach of Playa Grande everyday. In 2012 we have decided to return to California to be closer to our families but are looking forward to wonderful vacations in Playa Grande and we would like to share our house with you so you can come and enjoy one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in Costa Rica.

Dana Puckett purchased this house in 2007

Why Dana Puckett chose Playa Grande

Playa Grande is still one of the beaches of Costa Rica that is untouched by developers. It is a small town with restaurants and bars perfect for surfers - since Playa Grande is famous for its perfect waves - as well as great place for couples or families.

What makes this house unique

Casa Veranera is 2 minute walk to the beach and 2-5 minute walk to all local restaurants and bars. We offer cable Tv, high speed wireless and broadband internet, phone and security safe. There is laundry room available for our clients.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing place! This is one of our favorite stays from many, many trips. The private pool and gated property were perfect for our kids, and us. Interior is really nicely done and huge. Lots of space and quality. Caretakers were very friendly and helpful on our arrival and during our stay. Great beach tacos and surf rental a block away too. Highly recommended!

Great stay and vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation and the house worked perfect for our family of 5. The pool was a huge hit at the end of the day being on the beach. Five minute walk to the best part of the beach for surfing and You Are Costa Rica (surf shop) is on the way to the beach so you can rent surfboards, surf lessons and exchange boards if needed-they were awesome to work with! Marienella, the property manager was super helpful and knowledgeable. We will be back for sure!

Beautiful House, great staff, great pool, great beach!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is great! Playa Grande is a beautiful beach and west coast wild! Only a couple minute walk to the beach. There is a quiet swimming beach, good for toddlers about 4 k away(snorkeling). Took my grown up children, a spouse, and grand-child, all had a wonderful time. Pool was excellent(34-35-36 degree weather every day) so we were in and out all the time when not at a beach. Regular maintenance by Javier kept the pool pristine and there was a weekly visit by a nice young lady to clean up. All in all a very good holiday!

Great property for location and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The is the second house we have rented in the Playa Grande area. We found the location great in that we could walk to some of the local restaurants and not have to get in the car all the time. It's about a 5 minute easy walk to the beach. The house itself was great. It was clean, had good beds, a nice big kitchen, and comfortable sitting areas. The outside front porch was wonderful for sitting outside in the shade and the pool area also had shade if you needed it. Security system was good and we liked having the safe inside as well as the gated entrance and lock system. The only problem we had was internet instability which they had service come out to address while we were there. Property manager was very helpful, responsive and friendly. I would recommend this property!

Perfect house for a surf vacation

  • 5 of 5

Casa Veranera served as the perfect house for a surf trip to Playa Grande. Short walk to the surf and restaurants. The pool was perfect for post surf lounging.

Excellent home for a large party, close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family (mom, dad, and adult son (21) and three 16 year old girls - my daughter and two friends) stayed here Christmas week. The home was perfect! There is a huge master that takes up the entire upstairs. My husband and I didn't need that much space, so the three 16 year old girls had their own suite. It was perfect. The home is really roomy, so go ahead and invite friends! We had our own pool which is really nice but we pretty much spent all of our time at the beach which is just a few minutes walk.

Playa Grande is very low key with restaurants within walking distance but we cooked at the house two nights and had breakfast at the house each morning. All the kids had tacos at Taco Star for lunch each day (it's right on the beach). My mouth waters every time I think of the tortillas. Indescribable.

We had a great week and the itinerary was perfect for teenagers/young adults...in my opinion. I scheduled surf lessons on Monday and Wednesday and excursions Tuesday (ATVing/snorkeling) and Thursday (zip line, horse back riding, white water rafting, and mudbath/hot springs). We headed over to Tamarindo on Friday with an unstructured day of souvenir shopping. As we didn't have a car, the surf shop Loco Frijoles found us a fellow who was willing to give the six of us a ride to and from. The surf shop was amazing (separate review for them).

We didn't rent a car at all. The excursions included travel which was great as did the surf lessons. The downside is the restaurants aren't vast but they are adequate in Playa Grande. If you have kids, this is probably the best place to stay. Quiet (unlike Tamarindo which is wild) and safe. We all had a great time.

I must say, the owner Dana, and the property manager Marianela, went above and beyond helping us. Dana responded to my zillion emails asking for suggestions. We arrived really late and of course everything was closed so Marianela kindly picked up a couple of pizzas and a list of groceries that I had requested for a small fee. I can't say enough about how great they were in helping both plan and execute this vacation. It was awesome. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We will be back!!!

Great house close to beach and surf

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of August. This is a nice large 3 bedroom house with a pool. The master bedroom and bath are large taking up the entire second floor. The kids played in the pool most of the time and I surfed. The house is in an ideal location 1 block back from the beach just off the main road. You can't get much closer to the main surf break. The house has all the necessary amenities and was very comfortable. We cooked most of the time since we didn't find any great food options. This seems like the best value in Playa Grande.
