Recent Playa Grande reviews
"I am divorced mother of 19 & 20 year old children. We, along with 2 of their friends stayed in this lovely home. It is a great place to escape if you are looking for a peaceful retreat, yet there are plenty of adventure options if desired. The home is clean and as pictured. The kitchen is well equipped and functional and the open layout of the home keeps everyone "together". The property manager, cleaning staff and concierge were extraordinarily helpful. Take advantage of the fresh baked goods delivered to the door!"

"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

"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."
