  • Beautiful & Romantic

    "The condo: This condo is so beautiful and romantic! My boyfriend and i had the most incredible time staying there. The condo is on the second floor, just a stones throw away from a small semi-private beach. The balcony is nestled in the palm trees and feels super tropical and private with the ocean completing the stunning view. We definitely took full advantage of the wifi to post pictures of that gorgeous view to Instagram and Snapchat haha. There is a table and two super comfy lounge chairs to enjoy the view from. We had breakfast and coffee on our balcony several times and it was absolutely wonderful! The living room has a couple of really comfortable recliners and a smart TV. On a few nights when we were exhausted from our adventures, we happily relaxed in the recliners and watched Netflix on the Smart TV! The AC works perfectly and it was so nice to come home to a cool condo after a day of running around. The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous! It is mostly marble and much more modern than I ever expected. It came fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. and even had a blender to make pina coladas for my beach cup! There is also a traditional Costa Rican drip coffee maker and it made some of the best coffee I've ever had. The master bedroom is HUGE and was so comfortable! Since the little beach is so close, you can hear the waves crashing at night. I usually have trouble falling asleep, but the sound of the waves was so soothing... we have never slept better. We woke up so refreshed in the mornings too! There is plenty of storage space in the closet and they have a safe for your passports and valuables. We didn't use the other bedroom or bathroom, but they looked nice. I was (weirdly) excited about having a washing machine and a dryer because I didn't have to pack as much. I also tracked sand in the bed once and was glad I could wash the sheets. The area: Flamingof Beach is just a short walk down the hill. BEST. SUNSET. EVER. There is a little Plaza at the bottom of the hill with a few good restaurants. Marie's has a great breakfast and Angelina's has the best burger I've ever tasted. My absolute favorite place to eat, drink, and hang out was Las Catalinas. It's just a short drive through Potrero, but it is totally worth it. I think we went there about 6 times in a 9 day trip."

  • A slice of heaven!

    "This was my first trip to Costa Rica. As customary on our family trips we got lost on the way... from Liberia Airport to Villa Diosa del mar. Petra, the patient, warm and inviting concierge, drove a half hour to meet us to guide us to the property. GPS is a must, particularly when traveling unmarked dirt roads! Lesson learned! We arrived in the dark so we couldn't see or appreciate the full scope of the property. We woke up to a slice of heaven. It's hard to put into the words the beauty of this gem of a home and surrounding land. The attention to architectural detail, landscaping, lighting, infinity pool, furniture and art were phenomenal. Nothing was left undone. Beautiful to look at and ultra-functional for our family of eight including seven adults and a 15-year old. The property offers ample space for everyone to find their spot, and the individual casita-type rooms provide privacy and comfort. The bedrooms, all with king-size beds are air-conditioned providing a respite from the humidity and "interesting" bugs. My only suggestion to the homeowners would be to air condition the kitchen area, which would make evening dinners more comfortable and allow family members to linger longer versus rushing off to the cool comfort of the bedrooms. Petra was a godsend! She appeared within minutes whenever we called her with questions or for recommendations regarding activities or dinner reservations. She was accommodating and appropriate. Btw, upon arrival the fridge and kitchen were stocked with the grocery list we had provided her via email. She was a pleasure to communicate with prior to our trip and lovely to deal with in person. The same goes for the rest of her team including the affable housekeeper, Lara, who went out of her way to take good care of us including cooking delicious breakfasts and dinner. Big tears from me when it was time to say goodbye to heaven on earth. No doubt we will return to Villa Diosa del mar again someday. Until then... thank you for showing us the pure life! Pura vida!!"

  • Fantastic Oceanfront House!

    "We recently spent a week at Casa Loca and had a fantastic experience as first time travelers to CR. Booking was a breeze, Jarrod and Meaghan were great to deal with, always helpful and quick to reply to our messages. Upon arrival we were all impressed with the cleanliness, size and layout of the home. The outdoor space was fantastic with a great sized swimming pool, and the views at sunset were breathtaking from the veranda. Jarrod and Meaghan referred us to a local tour company called TPV who were also amazing! We all had a wonderful vacation and would recommend Playa Negra Vacation Rentals for anyone looking to book with ease."

  • Loved our Home Away from Home!

    "From the moment we set foot in the house, it felt like home. We were 4 couples staying at Casa Dewey Pacifica for 2 weeks and we fell in love right away. The house was perfect! Very clean, beautifully decorated, huge kitchen, big balconies, great pool and outdoor area, with spacious rooms and bathrooms. Also very well situated with gorgeous views of the ocean, steps away from the beach and walking distance to a couple restaurants. Anything we needed, Jarrod and Meaghan, the property managers were available for us. They also put us in contact with Michelle Ledbetter for meals and TPV Costa Rica for personalized tours which we strongly recommend –especially if you don't want to rent a car. We are anxious to return to Costa Rica and to Casa Dewey Pacifica."
