Recent Playa Grande reviews

  • Our amazing stay in Playa Grande Estates!

    "We came to visit Costa Rica as a family looking for a place to stay that was kid friendly and safe. We rented Playa Grande Estates, the home was everything and more we could have asked for. It has great surf out front at Playa Grande, and restaurants walking distance from the house. The home has an amazing swimming pool and a outside bar to hang out at while we watched our kids swim. We felt safe there because the home was behind a secure gated wall. We look forward to coming back to Costa Rica and staying at this home next year!"

  • 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!!"

  • Wonderful wonderful setting

    "This is a fabulous setting; a little house set 100 yards back from the beach. A private path to the beach leads from the house patio. It is a private setting with lots of large trees casting shade when and where needed in the afternoon. We are not resort people and so this charming place was just perfect for us. We were there in early May and it was house,. The house is suited for the heat; thick adobe style walls and A/C in all rooms made for cool afternoons when the sun was high. This was the dry season, leading to water shortages everywhere; water pressure was low, but not a problem at all. We had water for all our needs. The location, aside from being on the beach, is a short walk to Tamarindo, a bustling little coastal town with lots of restaurants and amenities. We did not rent a car and were able to do lots of activities in Tamarindo and rent taxis to take us to other beaches when we wanted. Surf boards are available to rent in Tamarindo and in the area of the little house. It should also be mentioned that the house is located in a small community which has a grocery store and two restaurants as well as a surfboard shop within 5 minutes walking from the house. Kelly and David were most gracious and met all our needs immediately. For example, David repaired a small door hinge problem within half a day of telling him the problem. Remember, this is not San Jose, and when things need repair, it is usually San Jose, 300 miles away that usually has to get the item to you. This is a charming place, well situated so one doesn't have to have a car. I hope to come back to this place many, many more times."
