  • Family Surf Vacation

    "We spent 7 days in playa grande at casa muy grande; we lived the pura vida to the fullest. We comfortably fit 7 adults and 4 kids in the house. The open kitchen and living space was ideal for entertaining and relaxing, while the 2 acres of land, hammocks, pool area and of course the beach gave us plenty of room to spread out. The house management team was super friendly and made fabulous dinners - the guacamole was extraordinary. When we wanted to eat out we had plenty of options within walking distance - we even ventured into Tamarindo for an afternoon, enjoying a great beachfront meal. The days involved waking up early and surfing, lounging at the pool, and more surfing and swimming as the sun dropped into the pacific. We rented surf boards and bogey boards from the local surf shop and everyone did their best learning on the friendly waves. A must do is the estuary boat tour - we walked 10 minutes up the beach to the boats - paid 10 bucks each and saw numerous birds, monkeys and a HUGE alligator. This was a great trip - and the house perfectly suited our needs. We would definitely go back."

  • Excelente Casa, muy espaciosa y sobre todo bonita.

    "La casa es excelente, la construcción, las estancias y la piscina. Está un poco alejada del la calle principal ( Que realmente es un punto a favor) El viaje desde San José es un poco extenso, pero al llegar a la casa, llega al paraíso. Muy segura y silenciosa. La mejor casa de la zona de Coyote."

  • Beautiful villa with an amazing view of the pacific...

    "My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Casa Camilla in February 2016. We had the idea to do a vacation rental as a family for a couple of years but were nervous about all of the moving pieces of getting all 11 of us together (4 couples and 3 small children). We had never done a vacation rental before and so this piece was a big unknown. We had high expectations and these were exceeded by both the quality of the accommodation as well as the exceptionally accommodating and welcoming owner and staff. We rented the main house as well as the studio apartment and this was plenty of room for our group. The house is just as lovely in person as the pictures appear (maybe even nicer) and was sparkling clean on arrival and throughout the stay. The ocean view from the house is spectacular and we were about a ~10min walk from the beach. We walked to Playa Hermosa most mornings with our children (2 and 4), who were thrilled to see the howler monkey family in the trees on the way every day. We also repeated the journey many evenings to enjoy dinner and a cocktail at one of several beach front walk-up restaurants. This was a fantastic spot to enjoy the sunset. We are a family that doesn't mind walking so this was a pleasure for us to have a bit of walk to the beach. Of note, the hill to the house is a bit steep and my sister, who has a 7 month old, preferred the short drive (there is lots of parking at the beach as well, so this was not a problem). It is also about the same walk to a small grocery store, so it was easy to keep the kitchen stocked. One thing I would like to note as well about the location (especially for those travelling with small children) is that was very nice to be a bit away from the beach and on the base of the hill hill as it does get very hot during the day and most times we had a pleasant breeze on the upper deck. Sam, the owner, is outstanding and makes you feel welcome in his home. True to the other reviews he welcomed us on arrival, ensured every detail was taken care of during the stay and provided excellent recommendations on local attractions. The couple that maintain the house and grounds could not be nicer. The house was cleaned several times during the day, our laundry was done each day and they were so kind to accommodate their upkeep of the house around the napping schedule of our baby and toddlers. Thank you sincerely Sam, for such a wonderful vacation experience. We hope to visit again soon!"

  • I will always recommend this home

    "I can't tell you enough how much we appreciate the opportunity to stay in this home. Everyone had a wonderful time. The layout, amenities, view and staff were the best. Your cleaning staff came twice at our request and did a beautiful job of especially cleaning the outside that would be a mess after the daily storm. Edgar was very attentive and took care of everything we needed. Our favorite is your new chef Sandra and her boyfriend Alex!! Sandra met my husband and I Friday before at the Hilton and we together designed a menu that was in our budget and suitable for our group, both with small kids, a vegetarian and the rest meat eating adults of all ages. Her cooking is first class with appetizers and dessert, and a drink of a different type each time, like a special juice or virgin mojito. She and Alex became our friends, and on the last day we were there, Sandra drove with us to zip line Congo Trail (first time for her zip lining) and then took us to a beach that we would never have found otherwise, Playa Danta. All this while cooking breakfast and dinner for 11 people the same day. I will always recommend your home as long as you own it!!"
