  • Great Beach House

    "We were 2 couples and 2 young kids. Had a great week in Playa Grande. Shawna and Jorge were extremely helpful. The house was beautiful and well-equipped. Only wish that there were some beach chairs and a portable umbrella for Playa Grande as there are no shady spots on the beach. Water taxi to town was convenient, however the last taxi is at 5 p.m. so if you either drive or take a taxi if you want to go into Tamarindo in the evening. Other amazing were beaches within a short drive. All in all, exactly what we were looking for."

  • Beautiful House - Detailed review including the positives and negatives of the property

    "We spent the summer in this house and know it quite well! It's very safe here and despite prior comments it is in a fully enclosed gated neighborhood except for one path to the beach (i've walked it many times). It is also patrolled by security 24 hours. The house itself is really beautiful we stayed here with a 5 and 7 year old and it is well equipped for cooking and entertaining. There are 2 tvs one in the master bedroom, one in the living room. The living room has a DVD and Blu-Ray Combo. It also has a surround sound system that i never could get to work however i only spent 10 minutes trying. There is a stackable front load washer dryer system that worked well for us. The pool in the backyard is great as mentioned in a prior post it doesn't have full sun. Although it gets a good bit of sun throughout the day and with the heat here you don't really need direct sun. The house is also filled with some great books (i've read a lot of them). Also on the first floor is a 1/2 bathroom. There's a winding tile staircase to the second floor with the 2 bedrooms. Both of the bathrooms are showers (no tub) They are also partially outside so you must keep the door to the shower and also the door to the bedroom closed at all times. However, we loved the outdoor shower it's really nice to listen to the birds and the sounds of the tropics while you shower. We did not have a car while we were here and walked to town or the beach club everyday. You can walk along the beach by cutting through the back of the neighborhood or you can walk out the front and take a dirt road to town. We commonly walked out to the road and then cut through Capitan Suizo to the beach this is a little easier and gets you into town in about 15 minutes. The internet in the house is slow compared to the USA but pretty standard for Costa Rica. We are able to use Skype and stream media with one device at a time. The negatives are that the A/C doesn't work very well. There are 3 compressors in 3 zones. One for downstairs and 2 for the bedrooms upstairs. The downstairs A/C will work for about 3 or 4 hours set at 78 degrees and then it will freeze up. The kids bedroom only works for about 2 hours before freezing up and the master bedroom works for most of the night without freezing up as long as you remember to turn it off during the day. The other downfall is that the house is not sealed up well, so there are a few harmless creatures wandering in and out mostly geckos and ants."

  • Wonderful Playa Hermosa Beach House

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This beach villa exceeded any expectations that I had for my family when I booked it. We looked at several rentals in the Playa Hermosa area and chose this one because of it's size (4 bedrooms) and setting right on the beach. For me, it was one of those 'bucket list' trips since one of my daughters and two college age grandkids came along. The home was comfortable and bedrooms were air conditioned. My grandkids, both college athletes, wanted to watch the Olympics and Jennifer the manager arranged to install a big flat screen t-v on the outdoor living/deck area. The housekeepers, Freddy and Dalia, kept the home immaculate with daily service, which made my wife and daughter happy! The beach was only steps away and a daily highlight was watching sunsets. We did scuba diving (recommend Rich Coast Diving in Playa Coco) and zip lining (recommend Diamante) and went to different beaches almost every day. The only thing I'd say, and Playa Hermosa has this issue, is there is very little water pressure for showers, etc. Only one person could shower at a time. That said, we loved this place. Freddy and Dalia even cooked a couple meals for us and it was wonderful. They set the tables and served us out on the back lawn under the stars. We even had monkeys visit a couple days in the trees next door! Thank you for making our family trip so enjoyable."

  • Wonderful Experience

    "This is a wonderful property for a large group! We were 4 adults and 3 children (ages 10, 13 and 15) and Casa Cay was perfect for us. The house was gorgeous- just as the pictures indicate. Everything was clean, and in excellent condition, both inside and out. We enjoyed the open concept kitchen-dining-living room, as well as the 2 spacious suites. The pool area was beautiful and so relaxing. My favorite part of the house was actually exploring the tide pools. While you cannot swim off the beach, we did find a very large tide pool (to the left when you get to the water) that had a man made dam which was the perfect place to sit and relax each night while watching the sun set. We were a little concerned before we went as there were no recent comments on any of the Casa Cay sites. No need to worry- you won't be disappointed!. Well maybe- the monkeys only came around twice for a brief visit."
