About Maria Sabatto Property Manager

My wife and I visited Costa Rica in October 2014. We fell in love with the country and the local "Tica" population. We decided that we wanted to buy a house in Costa Rica but it had to be right on the beach. We have a home in Ft. Lauderdale and a Yacht but the house is on the Intercostal Canal and we park our boat there. After 6-7 years of doing the Caribbean cruses, we decided to sell the boat but to keep the house in Florida. My wife is a real water person and she wanted a house on the beach so we could hear the waves and get the whole ocean experience. We live full time in Houston Texas and I recently retired as the CEO of publically traded company. Since we live in Houston, its not hard to guess that I was in the Oil and Gas industry. Anyway, we wanted a place that was laid back, not too expensive and secure that we could spend 6 months a year at if we wanted. Besides the house in Florida, we have a ranch in South Texas. We wanted a completely different experience and change of pace. So, we found Casa Roca.

Maria Sabatto Property Manager purchased this house in 2014

Why Maria Sabatto Property Manager chose Guanacaste

We looked all over Costa Rica for a property that fit our ideal property. I think we looked at almost every beach front property that was for sale. When we saw Casa Roca, we knew we had found our home. Casa Roca was unique and entirely different from the other homes we looked at. Many of the others were very nice, but nothing special and some, although a bit newer, were cookie cutters of what you would find in Florida or any typical Mediterranean style home. The marble floors, tiled ceilings, antique doors and woodwork, plus the rock walls of Casa Roca are truly unique and immediately caught our attention. The beach is about 20 yards out the back gate. Although you do have 6-7 neighbors on the same street, the way the house is designed, once you are inside the gates, you feel like you are completely isolated from the outside. Although Tamarindo/Playa Langosta are a safe community, we also like the security of the iron gates and security guards. Of all the beach properties we looked at, Casa Roca is the only one that fit all of our criteria. A big plus and part of the decision to buy was the town of Tamarindo. Many of the beach communities we looked at, were a little too Bohemian for our taste. Or, they had little or no amenities to offer. Tamarindo, is a bit more upscale than most but, still has a very casual, laid back atmosphere. Most of Tamarindo is relatively new. It has a great grocery store, great restaurants with everything from Pizza to Gourmet restaurants, casual beach bars and everything in between. There is also a varied selection of shopping, you will find most anything from local souvenirs to surfboards or very nice jewelry. All considered, we felt this was the best area for families and relaxation in Costa Rica. Everyone we have met, both Tica's (that's what the local Costa Ricans are called) and the Expats, have been extremely friendly and helpful.

Incredible Experience! Loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

We are 3 families with kids that travel together every summer (this was our 9th year!) so we are always looking for a big home with enough to keep everybody happy during our stay and this house definitely delivered. The kids (and adults) loved the pool and hot tub. The pool was plenty big enough for 6 kids (3 14 years old, a 12 year old and 2 10 years olds) to play for hours and never get bored. We brought a few water balls and an inflatable basketball hoop to help. The beach was obviously a big draw, though the area just in front is a bit rocky. That means it's harder to play in the waves, but perfect for exploring tide pools and seeing all kinds of ocean life during low tide. A 10 minute walk to the left gets you to a sandy beach where you can play in the waves and also has some low water areas perfect for smaller kids. The home is beyond beautiful, it is really a piece of art itself and has so many amazing details everywhere. The outdoor kitchen and cabana truly are a huge part of your living space and where we spent much of our time. The cabana has the most spectacular view and is great for relaxing, chatting, drinking, watching sunrises and sunsets and also keeping an eye on the kids in the pool and hot tub. Important to note that all the bedrooms open to the outdoors but the home is completely enclosed and we never felt that was a problem even though 2 rooms were kids rooms. There is also a security guard on duty at night though we would have felt fine without it. A few recommendations: 1) get a golf cart while you are there, makes it easy to get everywhere you need to go in Tamarindo and gives you more flexibility. 2) Use Daniela to book your excursions and if you need help, she knows what she's doing and makes things go very smoothly. (My son ended up with an ear infection due to swimmers ear on the morning we were leaving. Texted Daniela at 7am and she had transport arranged and us on our way to a 24 hour clinic within minutes. We were leaving for the airport at 9:30 am and I was back with a prescription with time to spare!) 3) Have Eider cook for you as much as you can! The food was excellent and was a great mix of foods familiar to us and traditional Costa Rican food. We are all intermediate foodies and felt he created chef quality meals, delicious and perfectly cooked. Liseth and Eider both take amazing care of the guests and home, we couldn't have been happier with their service. 4) Recs: Surf Shack! El Sapo! Transmila Transport!

Great Retreat and Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay. Be sure to take advantage of the wonderful food prepared by the house staff. They are not only great cooks, but wonderful and attentive people. The concierge service was great - Daniella was willing to do whatever it took to make our stay great - including making last minute changes and accommodations. Highly recommend the home and services!

See Rex's review below. AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

I have to repeat everything that Rex said in his review. We also had a group of 8 and we loved this trip. Many in our group travel frequently and this almost everyone's #1 or maybe #2 trip. I almost didn't write a review because I'd like to keep this home available for future rentals; however, that doesn't do Eider or Lisseth (the house crew) or Victor & Brian (security & pool) any good. We loved the house staff. They were wonderful!! You will not be disappointed.

CASA ROCA, It doesn't get any better than this Gem of a House. By far the best around!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! Where do I start? From the arranged pick up at the airport with the very friendly driver, to greeting the staff at the house, everything was top notch. When we pulled into the gates of the house and parked in the courtyard the house just opened up before us. Through the main gate and you instantly greeted with a view of paradise!! The infinity edge pool, the palapa and infinity edge hot tub are framed with the beutiful blue water and sand of the beach.

All the rooms for our party of 8 were incredible and different in their own small way. We chose the room with the open air shower!!! The other rooms were awesome in their own ways. The beds are top notch as are the bedding, bathrobes and towels. The main living outside has two long wood tables where we ate breakfast every morning. Lizzet took our order and the meals were served.

We enjoyed the pool all day and relaxed under the palapa slipping into the hot tub to watch the fantastic sunset. There is nothing we did not have. From large HD TVs to Bose music bases all over, we were well covered with music and TV (we watched the SuperBowl there). A few of us did use the workout room once or twice at the beginning before full relaxation mode set in!!

The small town of Tamarindo is very close by and offers much in the form of shopping, dining, entertainment and the beach. Anything you would like to do as far as activities can be had. The house manager can arrange these for you.

All in all it was an incredible time!!! The house is always in immaculate shape due to Lizzet and Aider's constant attention. If you like being pampered while in one of the most beutiful sites in the world, Casa Roca is for you!! We will be coming back for sure!!!

Spectacular Casa Roca

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 rented Casa Roca for a week at Christmas. The villa is extraordinary! Beautiful grounds, spectacular accommodations, spacious bedrooms with all the amenities one could request. We used the pool area constantly. Love the two long dining tables outside the kitchen. We set up one table as an arts and crafts table for the two boys, 4 and 7. Used the higher table for our family meals. Sunsets were incredible as we sat under the thatched hut by the infinity hot tub or at the beach in front of the villa. The gorgeous infinity pool was used by everyone. The workout room was an added plus. The villa was located close enough to the town of Tamarindo, about a mile, that we could walk along the road or along the beach to the local shops and restaurants. The staff at the villa was extremely accommodating without being intrusive. Our bedrooms were cleaned impeccably every morning as was the rest of the living space as well as the grounds. Lizzet was amazing and so helpful. She was eager to cook for us which we did not take advantage of since one family member is a professional chef and we all enjoy cooking. Daniela, the concierge service, was spot-on, arranging for our chosen activities: estuary boat tour, zip lining, fishing, surfing, horseback riding, paddle boarding, etc. The 24 hour security was very reassuring. There were no negative experiences with our stay at Casa Roca as it far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to another glorious holiday at Casa Roca!!
