  • Secluded, Safe and Tranquil...

    "yet close to everything you could want in Costa Rica. My wife and I have been travelling to Costa Rica frequently over the past 15 years, always in Guanacaste from Tamarindo to Playa Del Coco and this was the best location yet. Close to the bustling Tamarindo beach for world-class fishing and the beachy night life, but far enough (just a few minute drive though) to feel away from it all in this Playa Grande villa. Its location is quiet, within a gated, small enclave and its own less populated, even secluded, beaches and business district (meaning a store or two for anything you'd need, good restaurants and beach/surf shops). Perfect for a romantic getaway or a family jaunt; it'll fit the bill for either. Richard is as prompt and easy to deal with as any owner you'll deal with and he/his team are wonderfully helpful with trip planning. You can rent bikes, boards or horses within walking distance and there's never much traffic - another big plus as opposed to Tamarindo, if that matters to you. We also tried the in-villa chef visit with "Ander" (ask your concierge) and it was a fabulous experience with amazing food - lobster bisque and swordfish with a bacon wrap over risotto... it rivals a higher-end, big city fine dining experience, presentation included... but cozier. Great service and when they're done, you wont see a sign they were even there!! They clean everything, put away left overs and you do nothing but enjoy the dinner - I had them deliver a local flower arrangement too - this is one time, you wont know you're in a third world country - excellent experience! The Villa is more than enough for a couple with plenty of space to spare and would be great for a family too giving everyone plenty of room to spread out and relax. The fully stocked kitchen has all the features you'd want and like all of the rooms, plenty of beautiful wood cabinetry to hide away all your stuff. Large bedrooms throughout with a beautiful master and accompanying well-sized master bath. Everything is super clean and the management service is readily available with just a phone call. Ceiling fans and cool air moving well throughout the villa after a hot day on the ocean or beach with air conditioning units in each room (important for us as we keep it pretty cool). Overall, very serene location, beautiful, secure and private villa just a short walk from pristine beach, and laid back atmosphere all over town... Pura Vida awaits you @ Richard's Playa Grande Villa."

  • Hidden Gem - The Casita at Casa Linda Vista

    "When my wife and I wanted to get back to Costa Rica for a romantic weekend, we wanted to try the Guanacaste area as we hadn't been able to venture that far north previously. Our trusted source in Costa Rica told us of a perfect house close to the best beach at a very reasonable price. Sounded too good to be true but the Casita at Casa Linda Vista definitely lived up to the hype. Down an unassuming dirt road in the community of Playa Grande - this beautiful property hides up on a hill just short walk from one of the best surf beaches in Costa Rica. Also home to the protected sea turtle nesting grounds. The owners are so friendly and accommodating- they have built this retreat literally from the ground up. We stayed in the 1 bedroom and it was perfect for our weekend getaway. Very clean. Beautifully landscaped. Hot water was more than ample. There are two other lager houses on the property and we are already talking about renting all 3 for a big group trip in the future. You will not find a cleaner or better kept rental in Playa Grande anywhere close to this price range. The owner - an avid surfer, even let us float around on a couple of his old surfboards and joined in for a few sets at one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches I've ever sunk my toes into. Mornings included wakeup calls by howler monkeys literally 10 feet from our windowsill. Kikis place just down the path has great breakfast and there is a shop next door that you can fill the fridge with. I could live here. Not used to giving away 5 stars but this place deserves it. We will be back again and again. Thank you, Casa Linda Vista - you were exactly what we wanted and more!"

  • Tamarindo Getaway.

    "I recently stayed at this home with my girlfriend for a week's vacation and the experience was incredible. We used Pura Vida's shuttle service to and from Liberia airport and the drivers were professional and prompt, even stopping at the AutoMercado on the way into town to let us shop. The staff was very helpful and the house was in perfect condition upon arrival. They provided a local cell phone with staff and local taxi numbers programmed in it which was a really nice touch and came in handy more than a few times. The A/C worked really well and all of the house features were in great condition. The house offers plenty of privacy and the pool was a perfect cool-down during a hot day. Access to the Langosta Beach Club provided a great spot to hang out. Excellent bars, coffee shops and restaurants were all well within walking distance. Overall the complex and town felt incredibly safe and the feel of the whole house and area were very welcoming. The house had a great open feel and was really spacious. It was really the perfect vacation for a couple but there was plenty of space for multiple couples or a family. I would highly recommend this property to others and would return in a heartbeat."

  • MAR AZUL PURA VIDA!!

    "Estate Mar Azul met and exceeded our expectations. The swimming pool was a hit for the entire family. The views are amazing and the house is absolutely stunning!! Access to private beaches are a breeze as well as Samara for adventure days. Johnny and Theresa went above and beyond to make sure our stay was 5 star. The hospitality is second to none and we will most certainly be going back!!! I highly recommend Mar Azul. You will definitely not be disappointed."
