Sweet Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Cash Rincon is always such a delight for us to visit. The property is beautiful with your own pool, the house is spacious and well maintained, the cabina has an authentic island feel, it's a gated lot, and a walk down the street leads you to a massive fruit stand and the ocean shores. It is close to many restaurants and activities; Captain Tom does a great job of setting you up with anything you choose. I highly recommend Casa Rincon to everyone!

Owner's Response: We, and Captain Tom, were most delighted to see your return for another visit and vacation to Surfside/Potrero and your stay at Casa Rincon Paraiso. It is always great to see people back time and again. You have nearly become "Family" after this many visits. The Captain might be giving you, your own set of keys before too long, : ) We agree; Captain Tom is a great host and goes out of his way to make sure our guests have the best possible holiday. His many years of living in the area, does make him a great go-to-guy, to book tours; fishing trips; and is a wealth of knowledge and information. Looking forward to seeing you again on your return to Costa Rica.

Relaxing from everyday life.

  • 5 of 5

We were met at Casa Rincon by Captn Tom, the property manager who had a few supplies for us to get us through till we could go shopping, much appreciated after a long trip. He supplied us with information on the area, customs and the Tico ways of life. Always available to assist should we need help. Our accommodations exceeded the many photos and our expectations, fully equiped, well maintained and most of all thoroughly clean throughout, one of the biggest fears when dealing on a rental property. Ideally situated close to the beach, fruit stand and restaurants within walking distance. The locals are friendly and are helpful with the language barrier, many speak good English.

Safety was never an issue in any area we travelled we always felt safe. The country is beautiful, a must see.

The highlight of our vacation was having a private pool at your backdoor for all day enjoyment. We hope to return as soon as time is available.

Wonderful Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This year the family decided to break tradition and head to a warm climate for Christmas vacation. Costa Rica and Casa Rincon was our choice. We were not disappointed with our choice of location or lodging. We were reluctant at first to book a place on line with just the photos on the web site. Once we arrived, we quickly learned the photos do not do Casa Rincon justice. It was one of the nicest homes we have ever rented. It was clean, well maintained and we had all the amenities we needed. Casa Rincon was comfortable, roomy and centrally located within walking distance of a fruit/vegetable stand and the beach.

Capt Tom is the consummate host. Once we settled into Casa Rincon, Tom joined us for dinner at one of the local restaurants. He also showed us around so we could get our bearings. He made sure we felt comfortable and our needs were met. Then Capt Tom, like all good host, step in the background but we knew he was there if we needed him.

As we learned, one of the best parts about renting Casa Rincon is you get 26 years of experience from a local expert years who makes a living ensuring his guest are happy. Capt Tom understands customer service and repeat business. Capt Tom knows all the best tour guides and the best places to visit. We tried to tour the one of the national parks on our own and found it was closed. Had we consulted with Capt Tom, they may not have happened. We had Capt Tom set up a river cruise and what a wonderful day. The tour guide picked us up at the house. He stayed us throughout the cruise. Once the cruise was finished, he took us to a wonderful local restaurant where we ate traditional Costa Rican food and returned us back to Casa Rincon. The family had a wonderful day, thanks to Capt Tom and Carlos.

I highly recommend Casa Rincon and Capt Tom a Costa Rican vacation.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 10 day stay at Casa Rincon October 23rd to November 2nd 2015. We have stayed in Costa Rica a few times now but it is our first time with Captain Tom and Casa Rincon. The house is very roomy, clean and has everything you need to settle in. Captain Tom even provided water, coffee and paper towels which I find is a very considerate start plus there were two bicycles there for our use. After having coffee we toured the area. There are fans in every room and air conditioning if it gets too hot plus a beautiful pool right at your back door that is maintained daily. The fully screened porch is a bonus allowing you to stay outside and enjoy the sounds of the howler monkeys and all the amazing birds for as long as you want. Captain Tom is definitely a highlight to our visit, he is an amazing man with incredible knowledge and experience of the area. Mostly he wants you to really enjoy your holiday so any concerns or problems or if you just need information he is the go to guy. We will be back here for sure. Brian and Jackie Nanaimo BC

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending 10 days at Casa Rincon. The house is very comfortable and roomy and the location is very safe and quiet. There is no need to rent a car. There are several restaurants and a couple of supermarkets within walking distance, as well as a fruit market with the freshest fruit. Taxi cabs, if needed, are also easily accessible. There are many other beaches you can visit only minutes away and plenty of attractions/tours, you can take advantage of. The sandwiches at Maxwell's are one of a kind and Coco Loco in Flamingo beach, has the best homemade coconut ice cream in the world. Captain Tom from Casita Realty, is awesome. Friendly, knowledgeable about the area and of the best tours to take, and always willing to help. He went out of his way several times, in order to make sure that we had a great experience. He was always just a phone call away. The Ticos are the nicest people you will ever meet. It was our first time in Costa Rica and in Casa Rincon, but it will definitely not be the last. We are already planning our next visit next year.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the month of August, 2014, and we had a wonderful time.

The house was accurately represented in the ad. It is well laid out and very comfortable. It has a nice kitchen with an open concept. We utilized the pool frequently. We did not rent a car for a few days and had no trouble getting around on foot. There is a well stocked fruit stand nearby and several restaurants. The location is excellent and we took several trips away from the property. We went to Quatil for pottery. We went to Arenal and ziplined at Sky Adventures. We beach hopped. We fished and kayaked. Tom was very helpful and made us feel at home. We will be back!

Located between the sleepy littlle fishing village of Potrero and the more developed area of Playa Flamingo, this area called Surfside Estates, is a very quiet and out of the way vacation spot. Yet you can walk to all these beaches, stores and cafes.
