  • Perfect in every way!

    "Just got back from a week at La Choza and this house was absolutely perfect!! We have 5 kids and this was the best vacation we've ever had. The owner of the house, Raini, was fantastic. She was in touch with my wife via email countless times and gave us advice regarding directions, places to go, even restaurants. She really went the extra mile to make sure we had a great vacation. The house is simply deluxe and has everything you could possibly need. The pool is amazing. The layout is ideal for families and the huge deck overlooking Playa Negra is spectacular. There is only a short walk to one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica. Fatima the house keeper was also great as was her husband Jose who looks after the pool and the yard. You can really tell that the owners have thought of everything when constructing this incredible property. I can't imagine a better place to stay!!"

  • Paradise

    "Our perfect vacation in paradise started before our arrival by receiving all the necessary information including accurate directions, available activities, favorite tourist spots, and dining options. Mary is your own personal concierge--she arranged for the refrigerator to be stocked and a catered meal to be waiting on our arrival, which was especially appreciated after a long day of travel. She also helped arrange zip lining, horseback riding on the beach, and yoga at the house. In addition to that, the house itself was amazing. From the sound of breaking waves to the pool hammock for afternoon naps, we enjoyed hanging out at the house as much as our excursions. It's also reassuring to be in a gated community. The main reason we chose Casa Ola Perfecta was for the surf, and it doesn't disappoint. Whether you literally go out right in front of the house, walk five minutes south, or drive five minutes to Playa Avellenas the surfing is good just about any time of day. Our family (boys 14 and 12 and daughter 5 years old) had an amazing time, and part of the experience was the house, Mary, and Chuck. We highly recommend this place if you want a great beach/surf/relaxing vacation. It was truly Pura Vida."

  • Absolutely the best!!

    "Not only where the owner and his property manager so responsive but they where so helpful! We loved the house, it was perfect in size and privacy. The house was truly a peaceful home in what was a secluded lovely area. The walk to the beach was so close and the people in the town are so nice! I highly recommend hiring the private chef they recommend but note there is an awesome pizza place around the corner. We are planning our next trip and will stay at their home again!"

  • Beautiful house and location! Pure Vida!

    "We just returned from a weeklong stay at Villa Caramar. We shared the house with 3 families and had 6 adults and 5 kids total. We had more than enough space for everyone without ever feeling like we were on top of each other. The pool was wonderful for the kids to pop in at any time of day. Plenty of strolls along the beach and up to Hotel Playa Negra for drinks. The surf can be tough (we had a good scare with the older boys, who are very strong swimmers) but if you watch the tides, there is definitely surfing within walking distance. We loved watching lightening through the floor to ceiling windows at night, watching the hermit crab migration to the beach each evening, looking for monkeys and iguanas and just relaxing. Gina was wonderful and helped us with any questions we had! Maria was great as well and it's so nice having housekeeping while on vacation in such a beautiful place. We rented a car and I'm very glad we did. We made a few trips to Lola's in Avellanas and enjoyed AMAZING breakfast burritos at Surf Cafe in Junquillal. We navigated the dirt road networks just fine. The house itself was well appointed, clean, the air conditioning worked great, and we weren't missing anything we needed. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we definitely experienced pura vida. Playa Negra is a wonderful community and we enjoyed lots of take out pizza from La Vida Buena and an amazing dinner at Cafe Playa Negra. We had a reservation at Villa Deveena our last night but were enjoying the pool at sunset so we canceled (something to save for next time!). Thanks for such a seamless trip Jon! We look forward to visiting again!"
