About Jarrod Guidry and Meaghan Foley

We chose Playa Negra because it's a great vacation area with beautiful beaches.

Jarrod Guidry and Meaghan Foley purchased this house in 2009

Why Jarrod Guidry and Meaghan Foley chose Los Pargos

We chose to build a house in Rancho Playa Negra because, after only one visit to this incredible location, we knew we wanted to spend lots of time with family and friends, enjoying the sun, waves and ocean in this special place. Waking to the sun rising over the mountains each morning and watching it set over the Pacific each evening is magical. Each sunset is different. The days move to a peaceful pace. The people are welcoming and kind. We have much more to see in Costa Rica but all we have explored so far has been rewarding and an adventure.

Amazing spacious house with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 5 nights here on our spring break. There were 10 of us & it was incredibly spacious. The 180 degree ocean views were amazing. Our kids loved the pool and we enjoyed the sunsets each evening. They were absolutely beautiful. The house is well equipped & Meagan and Jarrod were very accommodating when we were arrived several hours earlier than check in and allowed us to come early. Even though they were out of town, they were checking in with us & making sure everything was okay. We loved the location of Playa Negra as it felt remote & not touristy at all. Although, there are so many great restaurants and plenty to do nearby. We surfed, spent time at the beach, ziplined, went horse back riding, ATV tour and did a private sail boat tour. We loved our time here at Casa Loca & hope to return. Our only negative was that our vacation wasn't long enough.

Fantastic Oceanfront House!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Casa Loca and had a fantastic experience as first time travelers to CR. Booking was a breeze, Jarrod and Meaghan were great to deal with, always helpful and quick to reply to our messages. Upon arrival we were all impressed with the cleanliness, size and layout of the home. The outdoor space was fantastic with a great sized swimming pool, and the views at sunset were breathtaking from the veranda. Jarrod and Meaghan referred us to a local tour company called TPV who were also amazing! We all had a wonderful vacation and would recommend Playa Negra Vacation Rentals for anyone looking to book with ease.

As a first time traveler to Costa Rica I could not have asked for more from my time in Playa Negra. Our stay in mid July was everything I had imagined. Great beaches, great surf and Casa Loca was an amazing setup for my group of six buddies. The house was even better in person than the pictures online. Very spacious, well kept and the second story kitchen/dining /porch area was a perfect setup after a long beach day to cook/relax and hang with everyone. We could have fit another six people comfortably in the house. Jarrod and Mariah were great. Not only were they helpful for anything we needed for the house, they helped plug us in with anything else travel wise we needed so that our time in Costa Rica was completely worry free. Counting down the days until I can try and replicate the exact same trip again

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Casa Loca in January 2015. There was a total of 7 of us, the house was huge, and we all had plenty of space. The location is perfect and a quick walk to Playa Negra. The kitchen was incredibly well-stocked for cooking large family meals and the restaurants in the area are worth visiting too. Jarrod and Meaghan were excellent prior to and during the rental. Anything we needed was taken care of immediately. Jarrod arranged for massages at the house and a horseback ride which were phenomenal. I can't say enough good things and as I sit here in the middle of another blizzard I dream of coming back as soon as possible!

It was all as advertised . The information book on places to see, eat, caterer , contacts etc was invaluable. It would have been nice if the gate community would open tennis court which would require new net and resurface clay base but there is a court 10 minutes away at jw Marriott resort. The service by pool maintenance , weekly maids and Jarrad and Meagan was outstanding. Little things they did meant a lot like changing the drinking water bottles and staffing the house with paper towels, toilet paper, washing machine detergent etc etc. Strongly recommend renting the villa loca . Only negative issue but not a big deal was dishwasher inoperative due to difficult in maintenance of this type of equipment. The washer/dryer was the critical piece of equipment and it worked fine.
