  • Uniquely situated cozy and practical appartment

    "We have stayed for almost 3 months in the condo and enjoyed every moment of it. Situated in a most beautiful garden landscape with many exquisite beaches nearby, this condo offers what beach and nature lovers like. The view from the terrace on to the Bay of Brasilito and Flamingo is breathtaking. In the condo we found everything we needed, and even beach chairs and tools were provided. Good security, friendly staff, on site restaurant and a big swimming pool. The communication with Todd and with his property manager Walner were excellent, friendly and clear. My wife and I highly recommend this condo and thank Todd for letting us stay so long."

  • Great House! Tough Surf...

    "We just returned from an 11 day visit to Villa Carramar. It was our third trip to Costa Rica (first trip to Playa Negra) and we shared the house with our dear friends totaling 10 people. Full disclosure - we came here for a surf vacation but during our stay, the largest swell of the year made it too dangerous for us to surf several of the days we were here. It would have been epic if we were more skilled but as it was, we had to drive to nearby Avellanas (15 min away) to get smaller waves. There was plenty of room at the house for everyone and we really enjoyed the open character. The pool was also great...kids loved it! We also enjoyed seeing the monkeys in the mango trees and all the forage around the house - very cool. Big picture takeaway from my perspective - 4x4 vehicle is a requirement (we nearly got stuck and nearly hit a fence on the drive to the property) during this time of year when the rains are frequent, the beach is very rocky and not exactly user friendly for kids, and getting supplies was an ordeal causing a lot of time in transit. Also, during our stay, the house underwent some required maintenance (roof replacement) that was quite noisy at times. Gina was great! She helped us contract a cook for our stay and I highly recommend anyone going to ask for Alexandra (she goes by Shenita). She cooked some really great meals! But like I said, you have to be prepared to make a few runs to the grocery store during your stay (45 min away) as Playa Negra is lacking on supplies. If you want to eat out, Hotel Deeveena is an excellent place (it is $$$$, so be prepared) as well as Jalapeños. If you want to rent surf equipment, I can't say enough good things about Javier at Pargos Surf Adventures (http://pargosadventures.com), he's great! Overall, I'd recommend this location for people with excellent surfing skills that don't mind walking a bit and/or driving to the break. I will also say that the owner, Jon, was a pleasure to work with."

  • Gorgeous view, Great location, All the amenities to keep you cool, comfortable and relaxed.

    "What a gorgeous view to wake up to every morning or watch the sunset at night! This condo has everything you need to make you feel right at home. A porch with grill, living room, kitchen, two gorgeous bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a large tub and multiple showers mean you have all the space you need to enjoy your stay. It offers a great location close to many great beaches and within an hour or so of the lush green mountains. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and it was a blast. We went up to the cloud forest of Monteverde, snorkeled at Ocotal, spread out on the white sand beach of Conchal and rode horses and swam in waterfalls of Guachepelin. Staff are friendly and very helpful at the gate and on the property. Pool and tennis courts are first class. Supermarkets are close by and the kitchen is full appointed. We were not left wanting for anything. Our neighbors were super friendly and helpful too. We can't wait to go back... Pura Vida!"

  • A week in paradise - wish we were still there!!

    "What an amazing experience we had at Casa Paquita. First of all the house...It could not have been more perfect for the 4 families that stayed there. The kids loved the bunk room and the parents appreciated the well built (thick!) walls that kept their early mornings quiet. My husband and I stayed in the master suite which has a balcony and beautiful views of the pacific. We loved the beautiful woodwork and exquisite handpainted tiles throughout and the house had plenty of room for all of us. And the pool! The pool was perfect!!! An infinity pool overlooking the pacific was the perfect place to sit drinking our morning coffee, playing in all day and then watching the magnificent sunsets. Endless hours of entertainment for the kids (and adults) and Christian, the groundskeeper, kept it looking beautiful every day!! Paola, the property manager extraordinaire, was so instrumental in making sure our stay was perfect. She and I emailed back and forth many times before we arrived as she assisted us with the planning of out excursions, securing a car rental and making dinner reservations. I cant imagine trying to book this trip without her! When I suggested an activity, she provided us with the very best there was to offer (Pura Adentura for ziplining, Anteres for a sunset boat tour, Sabrina for surfing and Action Advenures for kayaking were a few of her perfect suggestions!) A BIG thank you to Paola, you made our trip a memory!! And then there was Naomi - wonderful, sweet, loving Naomi!! She was our cook and housekeeper but so much more. Besides being an excellent cook (her empanades, tortillas steak, fish, plantains..!!!! The list goes on an on..) she felt like a part of the family. We all fell in love with her for her kindness and caring ways. Thank you to Rich, Paola and Naomi for a wonderful vacation - when we return to CR, we will return to Casa Paquita - absolutely perfect!!"
