Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just spent 5 amazing days at this property. As others have mentioned it’s set up with separate living quarters. It was perfect for my two teenagers that had their own “apartment”. The set up wouldn’t be ideal for small children though. Many hours spent in the pool and watching sunsets. Amazing. Only negative would be the construction across the street. Just poor timing and Oli was very helpful when they had our private driveway blocked. The house is very close to many activities and restaurants. Wonderful experience!!!!

Fabulous location and view!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this beautiful house with its private pool and amazing view of the whole bay! I do wish I had known that you must walk down and UP a rather steep driveway to cross the road to the beach. I have some mobility issues, but made it ok with assistance. We cooked bfast & several meals in its kitchen, everything worked except toaster oven. Lovely air conditioning much appreciated! Must do something about the frequent security alarms from Coco Loco next door, yikes! We had been warned, but still upset to be awakened 3x in middle of the night, several other times. Construction continues across the driveway, so pounding awakened us at 6:30 every am. Not something you can control, but be aware. An outdoor latch on the door from Living room to patio would help. Also, ice machine backs up regularly so must get ice from freezer. Small things in the face of such gorgeous architecture, decor, and natural beauty!

Trip of a lifetime!!

  • 4 of 5

Casa Piedra was the perfect spot for our family vacation!! We arrived at the house after two glorious days in the Lake Arenal area exploring the jungle and volcano area. Once we got to the house, we were immediately welcomed by Ollie who proved to be a reliable friend during our visit. He gave us great insight into the area and every recommendation he gave us was spot on! Everything from our initial trip to the grocery store,finding local fish mongers, booking a sunset catamaran cruises and a local chef that came to the house was recommended by Ollie and proved first rate!

The pictures of the property can't capture the beauty and comfort! The close proximity to the beach, the gorgeous pool and comfy porch all made this property a haven for a relaxing stay for me, my husband and three grown children! Walks on the beach, surfcasting from the shore, relaxing in the surf and pool made for the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. We even managed to get a few massages on the beach, as well!

Coco Loco(right next store)was our favorite spot in the whole country!! Great food right on the beach with a wonderful and welcoming staff. If I had heard there was a restaurant right next to the house I probably wouldn't have booked it but you never even knew it was there!! It was quiet(closes at 9pm) and positioned so that you don't see it from the house. The only way you knew it was there was that on a rare occasion you would smell something delicious cooking!! Great spot and super convenient.

Marita came to the house every morning at 8am and tidied up the house and did laundry. That was a real treat and not at all intrusive as I had initially imagined. She was helpful and lovely.

The only reason, I didn't give a 5 star rating for this incredible property was that the house directly across the driveway was being demolished so that our mornings started at 6:30am with construction noises. At times, it felt dangerous as some debris fell into our area. It was just unlucky timing for us so check to see the progress of the construction at the time of your stay. If you don't mind early mornings, we really couldn't hear the noises once we were out on the gorgeous porch and pool.

We would love to return to Casa Piedra with a larger group! It was the perfect haven for our family and we made so many beautiful memories with the help of Ollie! His insight and Marita's efforts made our visit to Playa Flamingo effortless! Thank you! Pura Vida!

Wow Amazing !!

  • 5 of 5

We Brought our family of 6 here and had the best time ever !! It was our 2nd time at Casa Piedra. We were here 12 years ago and came back to find it even better. A new restaurant is on the Beach right below Called "coco Loco" amazing food and cocktails. They got to know us well and started a tab for us and even served us on the beach. The infinity pool that looks over the beach with its huge patio was our favorite part of this house. Many evenings,sunsets, and happy hours were spent here. Ollie our care taker was Amazing and any time we had an issue ( not many)would come and help us out. He also hired a private chef for our 1st and last night at this gorgeous Casa. The Best food ever !! We Got to see some great weather too. Evening rain lightening and thunder would light up the beach below us but we were safe and covered on the huge patio. You could hear birds in the trees around us and even at times the tree monkeys. The sweet cleaning lady came each day and did our laundry and cleaned up after us. Everyone we met was so nice. Costa Rican people are wonderful. The Casa is divided into 3 individual guest quarters each with its own master bath. The main house with one of the bedrooms has with A nice kitchen and living room. My husband and I stayed in the guest room behind the infinity pool. Each morning we woke up to the beauty from the huge windows looking outside We also stayed in this one 12 years ago. Love It !! My only suggestion is to PLEASE

upgrade the "bed"in this room. The room is so large it can use a King bed or even a more comfortable Queen bed. We had a very hard time sleeping each night on this bed. But the beauty of the place made up for it. But I want to come back for a longer trip next time but I would need a more comfortable bed. It wasn't easy to leave this wonderful home but our last 5 days we stayed at the all inclusive Westin. It was wonderful but we all agreed that when we come back we want to stay longer at this Beautiful Casa. Thanks to everyone and for my early check in too. After an all night flight from LAX we arrived at 9 in the morning to the Casa and Olli was there to welcome us. The owners of this place were also very professional and responded back very quickly as I had lots to ask trying to make it the best vacation ever !! And it Was Thank You
