Recent Playa Grande reviews
"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 came to visit Costa Rica as a family looking for a place to stay that was kid friendly and safe. We rented Playa Grande Estates, the home was everything and more we could have asked for. It has great surf out front at Playa Grande, and restaurants walking distance from the house. The home has an amazing swimming pool and a outside bar to hang out at while we watched our kids swim. We felt safe there because the home was behind a secure gated wall. We look forward to coming back to Costa Rica and staying at this home next year!"

"I can not say enough good things about the accommodations at Casa Linda Vista. My mother, sister, and I stayed at Casa Azul. This house was perfect for us in accommodations and location. It's a beautiful home. The house is open with many windows and fans so there is no need for air conditioning. The kitchen had everything you need to cook meals but there was plenty of awesome restaurants near by as well. My favorite part of the trip to the area was the beach that is just a couple minutes walking distance from the house. It is spacious with white sands. Amazing sunsets. There were surfers always but quiet at the same time. I also enjoyed the howler monkeys that would wake us up. The best alarm clock! Kai and Ruth were so great. Helpful and so good natured. I hope to stay there again! Rental car is recommended if you are looking to explore the area. The location of Casa Linda Vista is a quieter area but within 30 min to 2 hours there is plenty of places to discover."

"My best friend and I are in the middle of a year long rental here. We couldn't be happier. A short walk to the most amazing beach, sunsets and waves are just the beginning. The yard is lovingly maintained, the pool is magnificent, and the community complex is safe and private.
Inside are 3 comfortable bedrooms (queen, king, 2 single beds), each with their own bath. The beds are comfortable and there are great closets for keeping your stuff organized. The kitchen takes the ultimate prize in my opinion. It has the smartest microwave I've ever seen. There is a "reheat" button that just knows what to do.
The house is just built so smartly. The tile floors help keep everything cool and easy to clean. The new flat screen TV in the downstairs living area is great for a good movie, or even watching the news from the kitchen. The laundry machines work great, so don't over pack.
For a home base while traveling to Costa Rica, this is the perfect spot to compliment your Pura Vida experience!!"
