  • Awesome place!

    "This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we truly fell in love with the place. It was a family vacation to celebrate our daughter's graduation from vet school. Casa Del Mar was just fabulous....wonderful location....gorgeous relaxing. Greg and Gabriel and their daughter Daniella were staying In the home next to us when we were there, and they were great. Very helpful, very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We especially enjoyed the full day Adventure Tour they recommended with zip-lining, horseback riding, tubing, and hot springs. We rented a car, at their suggestion, and found that very useful as we could do what we wanted and when. Mostly we enjoyed the awesome beach and relaxing on the front deck area of Casa Del Mar. Nicho and Miriam, the two "helpers" were also great. It was so nice to come back in from the beach to find beds made, dishes washed, even clothes washed as well! We will definitely be back.....thanks for sharing your home with us!"

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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."
