Owner purchased this House in 2016
Why Owner chose Playa Grande
Costa Rica is an amazing country with so much to offer! The people here are kind and welcoming, the fauna and flora are incredibly rich, and there are so many things to see and to do! The location of Casa Linda makes it perfect for vacations and relaxation all year round. It's a beautiful house on a hill overlooking forests and ocean views - with breathtaking sunsets. The white sand beaches of Playa Grande are only 15 minutes away on foot, and Tamarindo - with all its restaurants and activities - is a 20 minute drive.
What makes this House unique
it's simply the perfect combination for a vacation house.. - It's private and quiet, surrounded by wildlife and beautiful nature. Hours can go by with no other sounds than monkey howls and bird songs. The weather is consistently tropical (25-30 Celsius / 80-90 F), tempered by a refreshing ocean breeze. - It has gorgeous views of the ocean and the mountains. Every sunset is breathtaking. Every single one. - It's within a 15 minute walk of several beautiful, peaceful white sand beaches, perfect for surfing or boogie boarding, or just swimming and lying lazily in the sun :) - It's close to population centers (e.g. Tamarindo) with convenient access to restaurants, shopping, etc. - Dozens of activities are within an hour or two (or less): volcano parks, cloud forests, waterfalls, hiking trails, zip lining, etc.

Great place for a large group
My overall impression of the property itself was great! We were 7 adults and 2 kids and there was plenty of room for everybody. The views were beautifyl as were the sunsets. It was clean, air conditioning worked, and all the necessary appliances were available.
We had a few issues early in our stay that were addressed with as much speed as possible by the property management company and others were not, but it did not affect our overall enjoyment of the property.
I think it is safe to say that we would all happily make a return visit to this part of Costa Rica. Playa Grande is an amazing spot for all, especially with kids who like to go to the beach!
Our family trip from jan 14 to the 21st!
We visited Costa Rica for 2 weeks and stayed in Casa Linda for 1 week. The owner of the property Karim is very nice and attentive. When we had questions he replied quickly witch we really appreciated. The house was big enough to fit all of our group (3 kids and 5 adults). The cleanliness of the property is max a 3 stars. I'm not the perfect housekeeper myself but let's say the housework seems to be made fast and superficially. We stored all of the food in the fridge because they we lots of ants in the kitchen area. All of the beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the remote location and the privacy of the property. The pool is nice and has a beautiful view. The cleaning team was supposed to come every 2 days for the pool, but the came only once. After 2 days, the pool pump started less working and the water became less clear. The should really come each 2 days because the pump will not last long without the proper maintenance. The paper towels and toilet paper is supposed to be included, but when I wrote to say we were out, no one answered me or came to the house. Pura Vida!
Great views and location
This was a wonderful property. Good location in a private setting with many beaches just a short drive away. This property had many amenities that we utilized. We would definitely stay here again.
We spent an amazing week at Casa Linda. We loved waking early to hear the birds every morning and enjoyed the spectacular views. The developing neighborhood is gated and felt very safe. The house is modern, quiet, and private but just a quick drive down the hill to amazing beach, restaurants, and surf shops. We loved feeling part of the local culture. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking, although could have been a little cleaner. There is easy grocery shopping very close. We enjoyed being able to spread out in the house or enjoy family time in the common area playing cards, listening to music, or sitting outside playing cards. Meditating in the morning became one of my favorite activities at the house! I highly recommend Casa Linda for a relaxing family getaway!
I am glad you enjoyed you stay at Casa Linda! Quiet mornings are one of my favorite aspects of the house, I love to read or simply sit there and enjoy the sounds of nature on the patio. You are certainly welcome to come back any time. Pura Vida!
Beautiful contemporary home close to gorgeous beaches!
We are a family of 6 who spent 5 nights at Casa Linda. This is a sleek, contemporary home up in the hills above playa grande. Beautiful views from the refreshing pool. 10 minute drive to playa grande and 30 min to playa flamingo and tamarindo. My teenage kids loved the pool and boogie boarding at the beaches. The property manager, Audra, was very helpful in setting up scuba and snorkeling trips. Overall I highly recommend this home. FYI, you do need a competent vehicles to negotiate the road up to the house as it is a bit steep, but not treacherous. Thank you and Pura Vida!
Thank you Trish! I'm glad you and your family enjoyed yourselves in Costa Rica. You are welcome to come back anytime :)
