  • Perfect week

    "A terrific week at Casa Velas. We were 3 families--7 adults, 4 kids under 12 and the house met all our needs. Having the pool and beach so accessible meant the kids were always entertained and the spaciousness of the property met the adults could relax and even work in privacy. Having the 5 bedrooms air conditioned was a godsend in a very hot week. The gentle sloping beach meant the kids could play in the water while the adults surfed. Ana the cook and housekeeper cooked us 2 great meals and kept the house free of sand. When we cooked we realized the cookware-- especially the skillets and frying pans need updating. Not having a car was not a problem. We often took the 15 minute walk to the estuary and took the boat ($1 per person) to Tamarindo. Don't try swimming it---one day we saw the 10 foot crocodile. When we made reservations at Seven for their Friday night barbecue ($10) they sent a pickup truck to pick all of us up and return us afterwards. Mariana of "You Are Costa Rica" provided us with transportation, tours, surfing lessons and even some supplies (a case of beer) as well as advice. We were also fortunate to be there when the mangoes on the property were ripe and when the Howler monkeys came to eat. A great week and we all hope to return."

  • Splendida proprietà

    "Abbiamo soggiornato per 9 giorni in questa splendida proprietà scegliendo uno studio al 1^ piano. Non potevamo scegliere di meglio, immersi in una natura stupenda e godendo di tutte le comodità. Ci si sveglia con il canto degli uccelli, le colazioni e le cene sul patio sono state semplicemente deliziose. Manfred è discreto ma efficiente, ottimi i suoi croissant e baguette. Anche il servizio di pulizia è impeccabile. A due passi c'è un piccolo minimarket e un ristorante. Si possono noleggiare anche delle pratiche biciclette. In breve un piccolo angolo di paradiso, la ciliegina sulla torta del nostro fantastico viaggio in Costa Rica Pura Vida"

  • Peaceful Retreat

    "Recently stayed at Casa Marina. Nice quiet neighborhood with several restaurants within walking distance and a mini super grocery store. Everyone very pleasant and welcoming. Marina was very friendly but also gives you your own space. Our villa was very clean and comfortable. AC and amenities for cooking. Pool was also cleaned throughout the day and was always cool and refreshing. Felt very private. Marina set up a nice river tour with a guide that was very knowledgeable and sociable. We even learned a new way to slice and eat pineapple from him. Very short walk to beach. Low key community but accessible to Tamarindo with a short skip across the river on a river taxi for only a $1.00. Look for the German Bakery truck to come by on Tuesday and Friday afternoons beeping his horn. Picked up some great home made sausage and pastries."

  • Truly Beach front

    "We were a small yoga group staying 3 nights in early April, 2016. Feels like 10-12 could fit comfortably, so we had lots of space. Very comfortable. Beach was nicer than expected, good for wading and body or boogie boarding. Not many places to eat really close, but a 10 minute walk will get you to a couple decent places. Kimberly will cook for you for a price. It was good food, although I our group is very health conscious, and we noticed that she used some ingredients we could prefer to live without. She also charged a $30 taxi fee to pick up food, so be aware of that. There is a phone on site, which was handy, although it took me a day to know it was there. Marianela is the contact there and can help you with activities and rides, although one of the rides she set us up with tried to get another $20 out of my client at the airport, not very respectful. Overall, a really nice place."
