What A Wonderful Vacation
"You couldn't ask for a better location, right on the beach and truly a fantastic view so peaceful. The water is wonderfully warm and clear. We had usage of Greg and Daniella's personal home, it is awesomely appointed throughout. They have an excellent staff who made our stay seamless as we felt right at home. We enjoyed cocktails and conversation with Greg and Daniella who felt more like long time friends than landlords. We plan on returning and look forward in sharing a pitcher of margaritas!"

"My wife and I and our two friends had a great time. This was our 3rd trip to Costa Rica, but the 1st time we stayed in Playa Grande. A quick 200 yards or so to the beach and several restaurants and a store all within walking distance as well. Mike is great and his place very nice. Comfortable beds and cold AC. The American standard I guess. The entry road into Palm Beach Estates was a little rough due to the extended rainy season. A 4 wheel drive is recommended, but not mandatory. We choose to get one because we knew we would be traveling off the beaten path. Overall an"awesome" time. Thanks Mike."

"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."

"We were planning a family trip to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our son-in-law eyed this property on this site. From the first phone call to the last day everything we hope for went as scheduled and planned. The owner, caretakers, event planners were most helpful and reliable. We were a party of ten ranging from 73- 5 mos. The home was spacious, clean, and quite appealing. We loved the patio and pool which we enjoyed the outside breeze.. Walking to the beach and restaurants were a plus. It will be a wonderful memory embedded in our hearts forever. That's life----a composite of memories!!!! Thanks for a good one❤"
