"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!!"

"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."

"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 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."
