Amazing place and wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Scorah family would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Greg, Gabriella and Daniella for the most wonderful vacation.

The house was exactly as described and suited us perfectly being right on the sand with gorgeous views. Miriam and Nicho were great, making our time there even more relaxing as they took care of day to day chores.

Greg and Gabriella's help with car, restaurants and general local knowledge made the trip even easier, as well as Daniella's help with arranging ATV's and massage. They went above and beyond. Thank you again!

We WILL be back :)

A beautiful stay with the feeling of exclusive beach access

  • 5 of 5

what a gorgeous view from the living room to patio to direct beach access..

A feeling of 5 star quality with the attention and care by the owners, Greg and Gabriela!

We would return 100x if we could. Staff is thorough, property well maintained and truly a gem location - private yet quick access by car to several local fun towns. The owners make every effort to arrange full exposure to all of Costa Rica's main attractions. Not a beat missed.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we truly fell in love with the place. It was a family vacation to celebrate our daughter's graduation from vet school. Casa Del Mar was just fabulous....wonderful location....gorgeous home....so relaxing. Greg and Gabriel and their daughter Daniella were staying In the home next to us when we were there, and they were great. Very helpful, very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We especially enjoyed the full day Adventure Tour they recommended with zip-lining, horseback riding, tubing, and hot springs.

We rented a car, at their suggestion, and found that very useful as we could do what we wanted and when. Mostly we enjoyed the awesome beach and relaxing on the front deck area of Casa Del Mar. Nicho and Miriam, the two "helpers" were also great. It was so nice to come back in from the beach to find beds made, dishes washed, even clothes washed as well!

We will definitely be back.....thanks for sharing your home with us!

Truly Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay! Greg and Gabriela and their daughter Daniella were wonderful. We very much appreciated their recommendations - everything from where to shop, where to bank, which beaches to visit, the best attractions, the best restaurants, etc., etc. Also very much appreciated the recommendations for the massage on the patio and the surfing instructor. We agree with the comments of many others who note that the pictures do not do the house or the beach justice. The caretakers, Miriam and Nicho were super sweet and very helpful. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we could not have asked for more. We quickly got into a relaxing routine - morning jogs along the beach followed by a quick plunge into the ocean, then a quick outdoor shower followed by breakfast on the patio. We enjoyed a few excursions, most notably the recommended sunset sail, but what we remember most was relaxing at this lovely home. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Fantastic Family Beach Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW!! What an amazing trip that was! Our group of 9 family members (ages 3 to 60 with a very pregnant daughter-in-law), spent 9 beautiful days/nights at this amazing beach house. Our family highly recommends this place. Not only is the house remarkable, but it was truly a beautiful experience working with the terrific team supporting this residence. On our first call, Greg was so passionate about his beach house and CR and we were only researching!

Then we met Miriam and Nicho (caretakers) on our arrival! They were just as passionate as Greg! Interestingly, they spoke almost zero English and our group only knew a few Spanish words, but through their enthusiasm/warmth, we communicated with no misunderstanding. They are simply wonderful people! And so is Damaris who was outstanding at cleaning and doing our laundry. These folks are humble and always had a big smile on their faces. There was no “sour” service people here as is not unusual on such trips. Our contact was less with Erik, the night guard, but he was also very pleasant and respectful.

We also met Gabriella and Daniella (Greg’s wife/daughter). I still fondly recall the few times they stopped over and we sat on our beach porch and it honestly felt like we were catching up with old friends!

We are thankful we took Greg’s recommendation and worked with Gabriella in arranging 2 rental cars. She bailed us out more than once…these agencies really try to suck every dollar out of you (Greg can tell you more about this). Daniella was so helpful with planning our trips to the volcano, zip lining, crocodile tour, diving and surfing.

Bottom line, this is a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Every day felt like we owned the entire beach (there was a handful of folks - locals and tourists). We spent hours on the patio, reading, writing, conversing, or simply chilling and watching/hearing the waves of the powerful Pacific Ocean at work. When eating in, why eat anywhere else but on the patio? Most of us also had great massages from Christina on the patio/beach.

To ensure you make the most of your trip and have a great time, be sure to read and follow all the terrific info and guidance Greg provides about your stay at Casa and in CR. It was invaluable to us, especially being our first trip there.

Our family would most definitely return to CasaDelMar! Thanks Greg, Gabriella and team for helping us create wonderful family memories that we will carry for 2 lifetimes like my brother said!
