  • A relaxing beachfront retreat

    "We traveled to Costa Rica for the first time and rented this wonderful beach front home for a few days. Wish we could have stayed longer, but our itinerary did not allow a lot of time. It is in a great location, in a very small town which is extremely secluded. Although the trip from San Jose was over 4 hours long, the beachfront home can't be beat. The sand is steps from your backyard and there are very few people around. It is nice to be secluded, however it is best you are prepared for it. When we arrived it was late and dark and we didn't have any idea where to get food. Luckily, we had stopped at a market on the way in and managed to cook up a meal for the 10 of us. You need to plan ahead if you want to go to the town of Tamarindo because a boat will take you over there for $1 but after 4pm don't plan on anyone being there to take you back. So most nights we stayed in and had the chef, Marcia cook for us. What a treat! She is an amazing cook and she took such good care of us. She spoke only in Spanish so my son got a wonderful refresher course and they spent the weekend conversing. She was such a important part of our great experience. It was nice to know that her family was living on the property and there to help with anything we needed (like when the locks didn't work on the pool house the first night and all 4 kids had to sleep in the main house with us). She also did a great job of cleaning the house daily which was great. The main house is spacious, but broken up into several smaller rooms. The only thing lacking a bit was seating in the family room, and the dining table only has chairs for 7 so we had to pull in patio chairs from outside. But it was plenty of room for us and we had a wonderful and memorable vacation at Playa Grande! The estuary tour and the catamaran sunset cruise were a highlight. Such a beautiful country. Wish we could go back."

  • Great Beach House

    "We were 2 couples and 2 young kids. Had a great week in Playa Grande. Shawna and Jorge were extremely helpful. The house was beautiful and well-equipped. Only wish that there were some beach chairs and a portable umbrella for Playa Grande as there are no shady spots on the beach. Water taxi to town was convenient, however the last taxi is at 5 p.m. so if you either drive or take a taxi if you want to go into Tamarindo in the evening. Other amazing were beaches within a short drive. All in all, exactly what we were looking for."

  • 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."

  • Fantastic Experience

    "What a great experience as we had a total of 8 men staying at the house on a surf trip. The house was really clean and comfortable and you cannot beat the location. We actually were not in the house much as we were driving up and down the cost most days looking for surf and adventure. What was truly fantastic was when we got home the house was cleaned, the dishes cleaned, beds made and towels refreshed. Maria the on-site house keeper was great! As well they have a night watchman to ensure nothing goes missing while you sleep. There is a very large enclosed car lot as well. Shawna who overseas the property and makes all the arrangements was excellent! She pre-stocked the house for us with a custom list of items so when we arrived beer was already in the fridge. The location cannot be beat as Playa Grande is beautiful white sand beach and the community is quiet. If you want crazy then a short drive to Tamarindo is all it takes. I highly recommend the house!!! Thanks Shawna and Maria!! Pura Vida!!"
