About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our house is situated in a gated community in Brasilito, Costa Rica. Brasilito has a beautiful quiet beach and is nestled in between Flamingo and Conchal beach. Our house is on a very private lot - one and a quarter acres. It is hard to find privacy like this in Costa Rica with only a short walk or drive to the beach.

The house has been built with high quality materials, All appliances, furniture, bedding, etc. is high end and has been shipped in from Miami. The pool has a separate splash pool area which is great for kids or just lying in to cool off. Pool lights at night are spectacular. Separate rancho features a bar with stools, barbecue, sink, ceiling fan, refreshment refrigerator. There is a speaker system from the house. We have also added a TV in the rancho for those people that just can't miss their football games. All bedrooms have king size beds. Each bedroom has its own private bath and Air Condition unit and there is a half bath for use from the pool. There are two master bedrooms, one at each end of the house. Each have their own private terrace. House is perfect for up to 4 couples to rent or for a family. Our house is in Catalina Cove development.

We have recently added a thatched roof rancho which contains two large double hammocks and a cozy sitting area. Beside the pool we have added a large propane fire pit. This fire pit will create a beautiful ambience with the pool.

Ample closet and drawer space. Living room TV is a large flat screen complete with blu ray DVD, satellite, X-Box Game. There is a library of games for the X-Box as well as movies and books. Wake up, sit on the terrace and listen to the howler monkeys. Casa La Salle has been designed for the ultimate in comfort and privacy.

About The Owner

We are a family from Canada. We visited Costa Rica about 10 years ago and loved the country and the local Ticos. We came across the lot about 4 years ago and were so thrilled to have something so close to the ocean, but with a huge lot for privacy. Since we would not be living here we were also happy that it is in a gated community.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Guanacaste

The beauty of the Costa Rican landscape and the wonderful friendly people. Close to the beach, but private and has all the amenities close-by. Restaurants, bars, casino, shopping, fishing, waters-ports.

What makes this house unique

Privacy, Privacy, Privacy! All on a beautiful one and a quarter acre lot, private pool and spa, Short walk to Brasilito beach. Close to Flamingo and Tamarindo. Many restaurants and tour operators will pick you up and drop you off right at the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

All one could ask for in a breakaway, Costa Rica was very cool but the home made the holiday. Very well appointed with great features and decor. Could not find a thing to change if it were our own. Met the neighbours, Dana and Tony. Nice folks with great restaurant on the hill - Mar Vista. Best big screen TV ever. Chris was always available if we needed something. Cheers. See you soon!

We are a 10 minute walk to the beach but once you see the backyard you won't want to leave. There are 3 separate roof covered decks. One main deck and two off of the master suites. There is a gorgeous pool with an attached splash pool and jetted tub. The pool lights are spectacular. There is an outdoor rancho with bar and stools, barbecue, sink and refreshment fridge. There is a thatched roof rancho with hammocks and sitting area. There is also an outdoor propane firepit that has a view of the pool. Many fruit trees have been added to the backyard. Sometimes you will hear the ocean but almost daily you will hear the howlers and many times they will give us a surprise appearance in the surrounding trees. Out home is alarmed with armed responders. Our son Chris (who is a professional photographer) lives in a casita in the far corner of the property. He will greet you upon arrival and help out in any way he can to make your stay enjoyable.

A Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week after Christmas at Casa La Salle with my parents and 3 young kids. All 7 of us were able to fit comfortably and still have personal space. Our kids loved the pool and pretty much lived in it the entire trip. Having Chris on site was great and he was extremely helpful. The owners have truly thought of everything and have created a private piece of paradise. The area has several nearby attractions and we were able to drive to a river tour and zip-lining without any issues. The area felt very safe and we loved how easy it was to hop down to Tamarindo or up to Flamingo. We can recommend this property wholeheartedly and look forward to staying there again.

Costa Rican Christmas

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the holidays at Casa LaSalle and were impressed with the accommodations. The beautiful pictures on this site do not do the property justice. It is exquisite in person! This property would be appropriate for many family or friend combinations as the house has 4 private bedrooms each with their own bath. As many other reviewers mentioned, it is at times difficult to leave the resort-like pool area. The house has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped and the outdoor kitchen was nice for grilling. We did enjoy surfing lessons in Tamarindo - Kelly's Surf Shop will get you up and surfing. Noguis (spelling?) in Tamarindo has great shrimp tacos and definitely get a slice of their homemade pie, YUM!. 7 Cielo-near the house- was our favorite for pizza and lasagna. Mar Y Sol (pricey) in Flamingo was wonderful for a sunset dinner New Years Eve. They have interesting menu items to try like duck and fresh fish. YOU NEED A CAR! We had a blast driving to many beaches and highly suggest you do the same as the worst beach (filthy) was Brasilito-the one near the house. Famingo Beach was close and fun with boogie boards -- thank you Chris! Lunch at Lola's is a must do with a combined day at Avellanas Beach. This was by far the most beautiful beach we visited. Tamarindo Beach was fun for surfing but crowded and parking is not easy. We were here at the busiest time of year so keep that in mind when you read this review. We were never bothered with theft but it is common in Costa Rica. Just do not leave your stuff unattended. Four of our adult children went scuba diving out of Flamingo Beach and had a wonderful experience -Manta rays and all! The hike to the waterfall in Rincon was filled with monkey sightings, coates, turkeys and the waterfall swim was worth the hike! The owner, is quick to answer your questions and help in any way she can--thank you Brenda! You will not be disappointed renting this home!

Pura Vida!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was truly an amazing experience!!!! The house and property were absolutely gorgous, we had our own private oasis!! Brenda, the owner, was so helpful and gave us a lot of great information before we even arrived. Chris greeted us with a warm and welcoming smile and took care of us the whole week we were there. We couldn't have felt more welcomed! There were 4 couples in our group and the house was very spacious and had plenty of privacy as well. The kitchen has all up to date appliances including an awesome margarita maker. The pool.....what can I was one of the highlights! We spent every evenng in the pool which had the most amazing waterfall and lights and we spend every morning sitting out by the pool drinking coffee and having breakfast. The sunsets are Pura Vida!!!

Exceeded Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home late last night from the most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. Everything was first rate. Months and weeks before we got there Brenda was super accommodating and welcomed us openly to her home. She was very descriptive and accurate on reviewing to us the restaurants, beaches and tours. She even spent time to answer emails back and forth one weekend and I found out later she was in the middle of hosting her sons wedding.

The home was breathtaking. Very clean and comfortable. We had three couples and all of our private quarters were first rate. The kitchen was very well equipped for the meals that we cooked there. We made good use of the margarita blender, but we used it to make pina coladas.

We had visions of going on all the tours and seeing all the sights. Brenda did warn us that we wouldn't want to leave the property, and she was right about that. We spent a lot of time out by the pool and enjoying the comfort of the home. Chris was very helpful and made sure that we got all the help we needed finding numbers to tour operators rental car agents and cab drivers.

Restaurants that we would recommend are The Happy Snapper, 7 Cielos had great pizza, Carlos and Carlos gave us by far the best service, but we all wish we had gone for one more round of the fish tacos at El Oasis. So good!

We as a group have traveled together before several times and have agreed in the past that we should always go somewhere new and have new experiences, but we will probably have a hard time keeping to that rule after staying here at Casa LaSalle.

Owner's Response: Thanks Debbie and gang for staying at Casa La Salle. I am so glad you had a great time and enjoyed our property. It was my pleasure to give you information for your stay. Chris says you were a great bunch of people. I truly hope you do visit us again - I think it's better the second time as everything is much more familiar. Once again, thanks so much for choosing our little piece of paradise. Pura Vida!!

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove up the driveway we were impressed by this property and soon realized that this was everything we had hoped for and more! This was our first time in Costa Rica as well as our first time renting a house and it was an amazing experience! There were four couples in our group and the house was spacious enough to accommodate everyone very comfortably. We couldn't believe how large the bedrooms were and how they offered privacy for each individual couples. The central part of the house was used as the main gathering place and featured a large modern kitchen equipped with top of the line appliances. The backyard was equally stunning and offered a private swimming pool along with a waterfall and amazing landscaped grounds. Many days were spent relaxing by the pool and enjoying the picturesque grounds in a very private and relaxing atmosphere. The barbeque, bar area was equally welcoming and conveniently included everything from a refreshment refrigerator, sink and stereo system to an ice making machine. The property is conveniently situated as it is a ten minute walk to Brasilito which offers a variety of restaurants and entertainment. Chris, the owner's son, was a pleasure to have around and made sure our stay was most enjoyable!!! Casa La Salle is definitely a top quality property and we can't wait to return!

Amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Date of stay:April16-23,2011 The Rossi family from the central part of Illinois

Casa LaSalle could not have been any more perfect for a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica. My husband and I visited with our two married children, our new grandchild (8 months old), and our two sons not yet in college. The home is abslolutely beautiful and comfotable. We even were provided with a crib and high chair for the baby. The pool is very well maintained and so relaxing. The grounds are beautiful and the area is as advertised--very private. Chris, the owners' son, was a great help and good company. We miss him. Brenda, the owner, provided us with so much great information on restaurants, grocery stores,shops,and tour companies, and other important tid bits about Costa Rica. It really helped make our experience very memorable. Thank you for a fabulous time!! We highly recommend this awesome home, and a visit to Costa Rica. We learned so much.

Car: recommended

Our home was built and designed for comfort and privacy. On our 1 1/4 acre lot, you feel like you are in your own resort. The house is beautiful but the backyard is definitely our biggest selling feature. Open the front door and you gaze straight through to the pool, jacuzzi, waterfall. There are three covered decks off of the house, one main deck and two off of the two master bedrooms. All bedrooms have King Beds each with their own ensuites. There is also a separate 1/2 bath with access from the pool area. There is a rancho by the pool with a bar/stools, refrigerator, ice maker, sink and barbecue. Wander along the path past the waterfall to a outdoor propane fire pit or continue along and there is a thatched roof rancho with two large hammocks surrounded by tropical vegetation. There is a large pool with led lights along with a shallow splash pool for the kids. You may never want to leave the backyard but if you do, it is just a short walk to Brasilito Beach.. We are in the gated development of Catalina Cove.
