  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Perfect Retreat

    "Six of us stayed at Casa Bali. It was perfect! Great location- a bike ride to the beach and Lola's restaurant. The house is behind a gate so gives a private feel. The pool was a great place to cool off and just hang out with a drink. The bedrooms were spacious and very clean. We are looking to go back next year. It was the most relaxed I have been in 10 years. Thank you!"

  • 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."
