About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, AC, pool, cable, wifi, bbq, close to the beach

Casa Buddha is a gorgeous house. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, 1 bath, tall windows and glass doors leading into the living and kitchen areas and hosts a large deck ideal to have dinner or drinks at night. The kitchen is spacious and open, with granite countertops and tile floors, fully equipped with a swimming pool with glass / ceramic tile.

Downstairs consists of two adorable rooms. Each room has a private entrance and bathroom. The house has nice landscaping, and is fully equipped to make your stay really comfortable.

The house is located in the heart of Playa Grande, walking distance to most the attractions. It won't take you more than a 10 minute walk to move around town. Playa Grande is a great mix of nationalities which embraces all our visitors. I'm originally from Costa Rica, so I know the area really well in case you need help with booking tours, surf lessons or even just rides.

Come and enjoy Playa Grande with us!!

Book with us and we'll treat you to a complimentary pizza dinner for you and your group

Staying at Fabricio's house was one of the greatest blessings. The house itself is big and spacious, and the backyard and front was great. The hammock was probably one of our favorite things in the house. There is a washer and dryer also available which was great being that we stayed 11 days. For our stay we were a group of 8, 2 girls and 6 boys and Fabricio was great at accommodating us in the house. As to Fabricio he was truly the greatest host, from acquiring us transportation to and from the airport and Tamarindo, groceries, bank runs, information to local bars as well as booking excursions for us, you name it and fabricio would always follow through with details and information. The town itself is very nice and everyone is really welcoming. Theres a pizza place next to the house that is oh so yummy as well as Shakas which is a 5 min walk about same as the little town grocery store. The beach was about a 10 min walk, which actually was not bad and the beach itself is beyond beautiful. There was also the taco shack owned by J that had by far the greatest tacos and smoothies. Our trip overall was more than we expected it to be and were very sad to come back to the states. Cannot wait to come back to Playa Grande and definitely stay here again and for a longer period of time.

Thanks again Fabricio !

Home was in no condition to rent

  • 1 of 5

I'll start with 2 positives. Playa grande is beautiful and the house was next door to a great restaurant.

My rating is based on my experiences with the homeowner, fabricio. The house was in no condition to rent. The ac was broken (we had to move the downstairs beds to upstairs living room and also have kids sleep on couch in living room), there was no hot water in showers for 3 days (my 4 year old could not take a shower), the oven was broken (our Christmas dinner plans had to be completely changed), broken fan in master bedroom, the door downstairs would not fully lock and pounded with the wind all night. The list actually goes on. I had 10 complaints in total. The ac and hot water were fixed days later, with no apology from fabricio about the inconvenience of having electricians in the house and workers installing new equipment. Not my idea of a relaxing vacation. My other complaints, according to fabricio, had "no merit". I actually have this written on an email. Unbelievable! I have used vrbo/home away for years and have only given 5 star reviews. I have NEVER in my life been treated this way. Totally unacceptable and unprofessional. This listing should be removed. I imagine other reviews were from his friends. I have lost sleep over how rude fabricio was and how he could not even apologize to us! Not once!

Great house

  • 4 of 5

I had the opportunity to stay at this house for a couple of days. The set up is nice. It has two bedrooms on the main floor and another two bedrooms that you can access from the backyard or through the front of the house. The living space is nice and spacious. Great wind while hanging outside on the deck. You can walk to a really good restaurant about 300 feet away (maybe less, I'm not good with measurements) :-) All in all, I would say this was a nice house. Not too far from the beach. We were a party of 2 adults and 3 children.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the most incredible time on our family vacations. Our stay at Casa Bella was nothing less than spectacular.

The house is nice and cozy, fully equipped kitchen, rooms are spacious, well furnished, comfortable and air-conditioned.

Beautiful white sand Playa Grande and many other nearby beaches and beach towns to explore.

Thanks Fabricio for making our stay at the house very pleasant and providing us great recommendations for food and activities around the area.

We are looking forward to come back and have already recommended your home to many of our friends and family.

Playa Grande
Car: recommended

Casa Buddha is located in the heart of beautiful Playa Gande, Guanacaste; one of the most beautiful white sand beaches of Costa Rica's Gold Coast. The house is located within an 8 minute walk to the beach and just around the corner from delicious restaurants, convenience store and surf shops. Playa Grande is a popular spot among surfers, and it is known for its perfect conditions all year round (specially Dec thru May). The National Park for leather back sea turtles (Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas) is located within walking distance and during the nesting season tours are available to view the turtles in their natural habitat, one of the most breathtaking experiences in the world. You can also select from a variety of adventure tours including snorkeling, estuary tours, horseback riding, ATV tours, diving excursions, sport fishing, canopy tours and more. I can help you get the best deals in the area. Come down to Playa Grande and spend the best vacation of your life at Casa Buddha
