About the property

5 Beachfront Master Suites With Private Lanais (6 Bdrm. Sleeps 13)

Indonesian Design with Costa Rican flare, Professional Interior Design, Spacious & Private, Beach Front

Casa De Las Tortugas (House of the Turtles) sits on the beautiful upscale beach of Playa Langosta. So close that the surf is to be heard from just about every room in the house.

Designed by acclaimed architect Abraham Valenzuela, executed by the well-known Karl Gronemeyer and built by the hands of Costa Ricans with imported wood columns, ornate doors and artifact's that were imported directly from Indonesia… These two cultures blended together create a serene oceanfront escape. Over seen and executed by Karl again, In 2015 Casa De Las Tortugas went under a careful restoration that has enhanced its subdued and simple, yet elegant character.

This breath taking 7500 sq. ft. beach front estate is truly one-of-a kind which makes it the perfect place for an Oceanfront private wedding ceremony, multiple families traveling together or a family vacation. There are no flipping coins over who gets the master…Out of 6 bedrooms we have 5 Oceanfront master bedrooms. All Masters are furnished with king beds, private lanais and breath-taking views. The 6th room is at the front of the house and has its own bathroom …Perfect for a nanny or teenagers. Every room in the house is open and airy with an abundant amount of windows in the living room and kitchen area. As you walk through the house you’ll instantly feel relaxed with trickling sounds of water from the fountain pools throughout.

Gated private entrance, courteous and accommodating staff, two car garage, and a private security guard ensures you of a good night sleep.

Take advantage of our Wireless internet WiFi or leave the world behind and head to the pool or to the beach with a cold drink in your hands and for the warm sand between your toes…. You're close enough to go back for a refill!

We hope to have you as our guest at Casa De Las Tortugas ~ Chris Kellar (owner)

Amazing home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

One word to describe our stay here.. MAGICAL! We rented this property for both of our families to stay during our wedding week, and everyone absolutely loved staying at Casa De Las Tortugas. My nieces and nephew swam in the pool everyday/played on the beach (the ocean is your backyard), and my family cooked up a storm in the beautiful kitchen, it really felt like a home away from home.

The views from each room are breathtaking, and the decor really lends itself to rest and relaxation. Each room feels very private and is separated enough to where others can be hanging out in the living room and you can retreat into a nice quiet bedroom for some down time. The main living room is a wonderful space to congregate in and you can see the ocean and surrounding tropical landscape through the huge windows, so it really feels like your own tropical oasis. The energy of this house is really great! One of my favorite parts about our stay was waking up to the sights and sounds of the ocean, looking out of our beachfront suite and seeing the kids splash around in the pool, and then going downstairs to my family cooking up a delicious breakfast. And how could I forget to mention, walking on the beautiful beach everyday, and witnessing some of the most amazing sunsets we’ve ever seen, just steps away from the house.

From the get go, my experience with Chris, the property owner was so easy. She is very communicative, and very quick to respond. Once we arrived in Costa Rica, Susanne, the property manager, made sure that we had everything we needed and was very available to us whenever we had questions. The house staff and private security guard were so friendly and helpful. We all felt so very well taken care of!

Chris was so wonderful working with me due to some last minute changes that occurred on my wedding. This house is so welcoming, warm and family friendly, unlike another property that I also used for the wedding. I believe things happen for a reason, and I am so glad they did, as the last minute reception and dance party that took place in Casa De Las Tortugas was nothing but perfect. All of our wedding guests were so impressed with this house! So many great memories were made here during this trip with my family and friends, and I can’t thank Chris enough for accommodating us, and making our reception dry (it was raining) and oh so special.

I highly recommend this property, it is everything you want in a vacation home!
