An incredible vacation experience, on the edge of the ocean, with amazing owners and staff!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible vacation we had at Casa del Mar! My family and I came here to celebrate my mother’s 75th birthday. It was absolutely perfect and exactly what we wanted.

The house sits right on a wide, long expanse of beautiful beach. When you walk out the patio gate, you are standing in the sand looking at the Pacific Ocean. Along the beach to your left and right are lovely, well-kept, private homes. Behind the home, on the side away from the beach, there is nothing but forest. There are no bright lights, no crowds, no traffic, and no loud bars or restaurants.

The house itself is comfortable and provided everything we needed for our stay. Our favorite space was the patio from which we could enjoy the sound, sight, and breezes from the ocean.

The owners, who were in town while we were there, and the caretakers (Miriam and Nicho) were extremely attentive to our needs. I can’t list all the ways that they took care of us, but I’ll try! First of all, I received a lot of information from them before we even arrived. It told us everything - how to get there, where to rent a car, where to eat, where to get groceries, which excursions they recommended, and so on. Not only that, but they made arrangements and reservations for our car and excursions. When you stay at Casa del Mar, you are not just getting a house, you are getting a vacation experience. They attended to us every day. A young lady came in and did the dishes, cleaned the porch, and cleaned the house once or twice a day. A young man set our lounge chairs out on the beach for us every morning. There were boogie boards for us to use. There was always someone close at hand to help you if you needed something.

As for the beach, Playa Grande, it was the perfect place for us to stay. It was quiet, not busy, and beautiful. Gorgeous sunsets. We went into Tamarindo, the larger nearby town, a few times, and I was SO glad that we didn’t stay there - it was busy and crowded.

In summary, you get a lot for your money here. This is the place for you if you want to wander in and out to the beach all day, if you want to sit in the shade on the beach and read, if you want to surf some strong waves, if you want to play in the sand, if you want to walk on an uncrowded beach, if you want to see a million stars at night, and if you want to be around friendly people who really want you to have a great vacation.

Thanks to all who made this a fantastic experience!

Paradise for our large group

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 17 friends rented Casa Del Mar and Casa Sylmar for the week and we could not have been any happier. We rent a home in a different state/country every year, and this location is unbeatable -- No pictures will ever do this place justice, and the sunsets are extraordinary. The homes are in incredible shape and had everything we would could ever need, from beach chairs to towels to an outdoor barbecue and extra coolers for drinks-- not to mention the amazing staff that would clean the homes daily and set up our beach chairs each morning. The owners Greg and Gabriela, and their daughter Daniella were always available if we needed them, and so helpful with booking our excursions, making sure we had ice and water stocked at the house everyday and giving us the best recommendations for local restaurants and places to visit -- it's never easy to plan for 17 adults, but they made it seem effortless. We definitely recommend the all day adventure tour, and of course the massages on the Oceanfront terrace! For the price we paid and the service/location we got -- it was a steal! I cannot say enough about these homes and the people who make this place run everyday -- we were so lucky to have been able to spend the week, wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you to the owners and the staff, we hope to come back again!

Sharing Costa Rica With Family

  • 5 of 5

We always dreamed of staying in an ocean front home and sharing our love for Costa Rica with our family. We spent so much time in playing in the waves, walking on the shore and exploring the beautiful country of Costa Rica. Miriam and Nicho made our stay comfortable and special. Greg and Gabriella you are very special people and we loved your hospitality and kindness. We look forward to seeing you soon, and plan to stay in your home again. Please come visit us in NY! Thank you for everything! It was a special trip we wont soon forget. Pura Vida!

Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at Casa Del Mar. We have loved our stay and enjoyed just walking out the door onto the beach. Great restaurants in the area.

The sunsets were beautiful! The house is very peaceful and has everything we needed. Greg and Gabriella were wonderful hosts and went out of there way to please us. Nicho and Miriam are wonderful and were always there to help us. We would recommend Casa Del Mar for your Costa Rica stay. We will be returning next year !
