  • 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."

  • Beautiful Views, Sunsets & Service

    "This is one of the nicest places I've ever stayed in. First off, it's on the beach and waking up every morning to a beautiful view was amazing and ending each day with a gorgeous sunset was even more amazing. The weather was perfect, there's sun beds and hammocks which we were able to relax on by the beach every day. There's also a massage lady out there daily who does a very good job. Maria who comes in to clean every morning was so sweet, we used her for breakfast every morning and a few meals in the evening. I was there a shorter time than the other girls but the one fresh piece of fish with vegetables I had from her for dinner one evening was delicious. The house is very clean and very spacious, there's 3 rooms with their own bathroom and a room that would be great for a few kids to sleep in, definitely a family friendly place. It's also in a very safe area and there's a guard on site at night which makes you feel even safer. Close by there are a few good restaurants and good Happy Hour daily at Hotel Tortuga next door. It's a nice secluded and quiet area and the town of Tamarindo is just a short drive where you'll find restaurants, shopping and most of the day tours and adventurous activities are in this area. I'd definetely come back to this house and highly recommend it for families, girls trip and for anyone looking for a trip of pure relaxation."

  • Great escape

    "I am divorced mother of 19 & 20 year old children. We, along with 2 of their friends stayed in this lovely home. It is a great place to escape if you are looking for a peaceful retreat, yet there are plenty of adventure options if desired. The home is clean and as pictured. The kitchen is well equipped and functional and the open layout of the home keeps everyone "together". The property manager, cleaning staff and concierge were extraordinarily helpful. Take advantage of the fresh baked goods delivered to the door!"

  • Great house close to beach and surf

    "We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of August. This is a nice large 3 bedroom house with a pool. The master bedroom and bath are large taking up the entire second floor. The kids played in the pool most of the time and I surfed. The house is in an ideal location 1 block back from the beach just off the main road. You can't get much closer to the main surf break. The house has all the necessary amenities and was very comfortable. We cooked most of the time since we didn't find any great food options. This seems like the best value in Playa Grande."
