  • Toes in Sand with Drink in Hand

    "OK, get your "bucket list" out and put this at the top: "Casa Sylmar, Playa Grande" :: Paradise Found! :: Circle up as long a stay as you can manage because it simply goes from better to best :: Our one piddly week the Ides of February 2016 was not near long enough (we booked Winter 2017 while there) :: Now improve on this if you can: You are ON the world's cleanest white-sand beach (no trash, no kelp, no campers, no seaweed, no dune buggies), with only palm trees between your terrace and gently sloping beach to the constant, soothing surf that is of a perfect temperature :: Here are some significant NOs: no rain, no bugs, no humidity, no anxiety, no hassle, no stress, no sense of time ( it is either night with more stars than you ever thought you could view [get the free Astronomy app for your phone] or it is day with beautiful weather, ideal temperature, and comforting on-shore breeze), no people (there are only about seven homes on the entire Playa) :: There are some surfers a couple hundred yards to your left near a good taco shack, and Rip Jack Restaurant is another hundred yards thataway but set back from the beach itself :: Rip Jack has delicious dishes from a menu that is varied and inventive; breakfast, lunch, and dinner :: I mean, really, you're not here to do a lot of prepping, cooking, and clean-up; you are on VA-CA-SHUN -- get away from the drudge :: I won't spend a lot of verbiage on the interior -- it is all as it should be; sumptuous, good spacious design, terrific structure, airy, lovely details, very nicely appointed, daily maid service, privacy, total security, etc :: Other reviews provide more detail but you won't be inside much anyway except to freshen your drink :: Do please read the other reviews and note that they all award Casa Sylmar a 5-Star ranking, and deservedly so :: One hour from Liberia airport and indeed it is Toes in Sand with Drink in Hand, awaiting that glorious, awe inducing sunset ::"

  • 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."

  • Beautifully located beach house

    "Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautifully located beach house on Playa Grande. Some of my fondest memories include waking up in the morning, brewing myself a cup of authentic Costa Rican coffee, enjoying it on the quiet pristine beach of Playa Grande as the sun rose, and then plunging into the ocean for a morning surf. Located a short walk down the beach from Tamarindo - this beach home blends peace and tranquility with the beat of a bustling tourist town. Jorge - the home owner - was very helpful and attentive, and we can't wait to return."

  • Family vacation

    "Villa Orquideas was our home base for a 2 week Xmas vacation for our family. It was impeccably clean, high quality linens, super confortable beds and sofas, ample kitchen linens, beach towels, shower towels, paper/cleaning necessities. Kitchen with full appliances, well stocked, a few minor items missing upon arrival, replaced the very next day by condo manager. Many different areas within the house and grounds allowing common time (large dinning room table/ open kitchen living area) as well as private time (2 different living rooms on 2 floors, and several terrasses). 5 homes nestled around a common pool, all tenants during our stay quiet, curteous and pleasant. NO other neighbours. Very short walk to the beach; ocean view through the trees as soon as you walk out of the property grounds to the left. Most amazing beach, both surfable and swimmable ! Another beach to the right, a few minutes walk, TOTALLY private even through Xmas and New Years. Property owner super helpful and accomodating."
