  • Paradise for our large group

    "Our group of 17 friends rented Casa Del Mar and Casa Sylmar for the week and we could not have been any happier. We rent a home in a different state/country every year, and this location is unbeatable -- No pictures will ever do this place justice, and the sunsets are extraordinary. The homes are in incredible shape and had everything we would could ever need, from beach chairs to towels to an outdoor barbecue and extra coolers for drinks-- not to mention the amazing staff that would clean the homes daily and set up our beach chairs each morning. The owners Greg and Gabriela, and their daughter Daniella were always available if we needed them, and so helpful with booking our excursions, making sure we had ice and water stocked at the house everyday and giving us the best recommendations for local restaurants and places to visit -- it's never easy to plan for 17 adults, but they made it seem effortless. We definitely recommend the all day adventure tour, and of course the massages on the Oceanfront terrace! For the price we paid and the service/location we got -- it was a steal! I cannot say enough about these homes and the people who make this place run everyday -- we were so lucky to have been able to spend the week, wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you to the owners and the staff, we hope to come back again!"

  • We loved Casa Kalumina!

    "We had a great time at Casa Kalumina! It was in the perfect spot, very near to the beach access. Two surf sessions a day for our surfers and boogie boarders. Three families used this as home base. The pool was key! Room for all us to be in and out to keep cool when we had to take a break from the beach. The kitchen was stocked with enough pots, pans, and dishes for all of us. Shawna and Jorge took great care of us and provided us with great recommendations when needed. We would definitely be back to Casa Kalumina if we have a big group again."

  • Wonderful Beach Villa

    "We rented Casa Serena with a group of friends in November to have a week long celebration since many of us had or will hit the 50's in 2016-2017. On the Pro side, We can say that this villa perfectly met our expectation regarding the privacy and the comfort. The Kitchen, BBQ and Dining area were perfect so we had wonderful meal cooked either by a local chef or by us. All the bedrooms were very comfortable. The sitting area close to the pool was a great spot to sit and exchange with friends all day long. The fact that this villa is located on Playa Grande is probably what we liked the most of our stay. This beach is wonderful. No crowds. Almost always less than 50 peoples on many kilometers long stretch (But also no turtles in November ;-( ). Few surfer here and there. Coffee in the morning and champagne with the sunset was so wonderful. We ended up sending much more time on the beach than expected. We would also like to thank Mark (the caretaker) who was fantastic with us. He even cooked ribs and a Flanc for us. He also called a local fisherman who came to the villa to sell us wonderful local fresh fish, lobster, shrimps and even an octopus. He was also very helpful with the little Con's we encountered at the Villa. Those Con's mainly came from sewage smells found in some bedrooms... After the first night, One of our friends couple had to change room due to the bad smell. It was OK after but for that they needed to purge the septic system on a regular basis and it generated disturbing odors when we were hanging around the house. Also, for almost our entire stay, the pool was not inviting. The water was always blurry. Those are not major issues since we saw real effort in order to get rid of them. Nevertheless, when you spend 8500$ (Canadian dollars) for a Villa, It's supposed to be perfect in every aspect. At this price tag, we would also recommend the maid personnel to come on a more regular basis. Overall, we had a great time at the villa, and if they solve those little problems we would highly recommend to any large group to rent this villa. Costa-Rica is a wonderful country. Peaceful and safe. The people there are extremely friendly. Go, you will not regret it. Pura-Vida"
