Guestbook comments from the manager

Excellent house .. we were so impressed! This house was more than what I expected! So spacious in and out . Love the huge wrap around porch. We liked the salt water pool my nephews were amazed with this. The fact that we had services available like tours and transfers. Yes we had a lady that came every morning to clean and yes she was so helpful. The location was nice; I felt secured and the beach was 1 min walking distance. I can only give them 5 star I wish I could give them mor because my family and I had the best time here! I looking forward to return again!

Incredible views; amazing property, perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Seven women who had never been to Costa Rica booked this home for a getaway. Adrian and Carla (manager and concierge) were very helpful: procuring a driver for us to and from the airport and for the excursions, providing us with access to a cook for an amazing lobster dinner at the house one night, and suggesting excursions away from the property. The adventure tour (zipline, rafting, horseback ride, lunch) at Rincon de la Vieja was spectacular; the sunset Catamaran out of Playa Flamingo on the Manta Ray was the best ever. Mateo and his crew on the Manta Ray made us a great lunch, took us snorkeling, keep us hydrated (!) and made sure we got the most beautiful sunset views. Adrian had other suggestions and provided lots of details so we could make informed decisions on what we wanted to do. The Playa Negra beach in front of the house is dramatic, but not the BEST for swimming as it's really a surfing beach. We found sandy spots and were able to bob in the waves. Having the use of the resort pool was nice, but the saltwater pool at the house was also very refreshing and beautiful. The grounds are meticulous, the housekeepers came every day to keep the house tidy, and Carla and Adrian answered all our questions. We had a plumbing issue with a water leak in one of the bathrooms which was resolved quickly and the owners could not have been more gracious making up for our inconvenience by providing a voucher for one of our dinners out. We loved the café next door (reasonable prices, good food) and Villa Deveena for a very special dinner was memorable. We loved cooking some of our own meals in the very nice house kitchen. Everything you would need for cooking is provided in the kitchen and our driver brought us to a grocery store so we could stock up on our way into Los Pargos. The only negatives are that you do not get fresh towels every day (if that's what you require) and the housekeeping comes a little early. Also, make sure to bring bug spray.....or lotion. It's buggy in Costa Rica. Hyrdocortisone, too! None of that dampened our spirits, though. The teak furniture and woodwork is so beautiful; you cannot go wrong staying here.

Gorgeous house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this beautiful house very much. All rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. Super cozy outside "living room". Pretty bathrooms with good showers attached to the bedrooms. The cleaning ladies that came each day were doing a great job, were super friendly and helpful. The landscape and pool was cleaned each day by happy ticos. The location was perfect for us, close to the beach but quiet area. Good restaurants close by. Great surfing:)

Turning 40 in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Where to start........La Choza exceeded my expectations!! Upon arrival, our concierge Adrian greeted us, assisted with our luggage and oriented us to the house and grounds! This was my second visit to the property of Hotel Playa Negra but my first staying in a house on the property. The grounds are maintained daily, so green and landscaped beautifully! You are only one home away from the beach front but can see the ocean from the second story deck! The house accomodations were superb! The rooms were comfortable, each with it's own air conditioning! The outdoor showers allow for starwatching at night! The saltwater, zero entry pool in the back yard was essential for afternoon hangout time when the sun is at it's peak and even has an outdoor restroom. A gas grill is by the pool for those who are lucky enough to bring home a fresh catch on their offshore fishing trip with Adrian! The kitchen is spacious and has everything you need! The kitchen tap water is filtered so no need to buy cumbersome plastic bottles, there is even a water cooler to chill and heat water! Access to the beach is very close by (no more than a 1-3 minute walk depending on how fast you walk) and the restaurant has breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails, wine, beer and a killer view of the famous Playa Negra surf break! Don't miss out on the Argentinian style BBQ they host once a week, it's delicious! Be sure to visit the gelato shop when it's open- great afternoon treat!. As 20 min walk to town and there are even more options for shopping, restaurants and bars to choose from! If you aren't feeling social, have the house chef make you dinner like I did for our group of seven for my 40th Birthday! It was so affordable and super delicious! I guarantee you will make many wonderful memories at La Choza!

Massages, day trips, transportation, chef services and dinner reservations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as Casa La Choza for Spring Break. The house accommodated 2 families with small children perfectly. This was the most idyllic family vacation we have ever had. To start with the house is beautiful and comfortable. Private salt water pool was the icing on the cake. A small walk away is the beautiful beach and a nice hotel if you want access to a restaurant and more people. But you really cant beat eating meals on the deck feeling the breeze and seeing the ocean in the distance. The private chef service was so delicious and an incredible deal. The house manager, Adrian is such a kind, helpful and patient person. He made sure our every need was arraigned for, and I cant say we were low maintenance. It was great having groceries ready for us when we arrived. He set up massages, day trips, transportation, chef services and dinner reservations. We are so lucky to find this place and truly grateful to Adrian for all of his help.

Casa La Choza exceeded our highest expectaions.

  • 5 of 5

This was just a perfect trip, from start to finish. The house and location are spectacular. Adrian, the house manager was incredibly helpful and accommodating. I am endlessly grateful for all that he did for us and that we were lucky enough to stay at this magical house. It accommodated 2 families with small children perfectly. We had our peace and quite and beauty all around, and if we wanted more action we would take a short walk to Playa Negra hotel to meet more friendly people. We loved the chef services at the house, you can't beat dining at the big beautiful table on the porch. We had zero complaints about this trip other than we didn't want to leave. We will be back again and again. It's hard to find something this special that hasn't become too busy or too expensive.
