“Spacious, quiet beach house with access to amazing dining”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

people found this review helpful

Four buddies and I knocked off a bucket list item to surf the coastline in / around Tamarindo. We choose the Wave House for it's large open floor plan, friendly layout for entertaining and of course, access to uncrowded beaches.

Anytime you book a place sight unseen, you get a little nervous. The Wave House exceeded every single expectation and more.

“Spacious home, nice pool, walking distance to beach”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This is a very spacious home and the bedrooms are situated in various locations offering privacy for everyone. It is located in Rancho Playa Negra which is a small development with several ocean front properties. Although this house is not located on the beach and has no views of the beach, it is a short walk down a dirt path to get to the beach.

Playa Negra is a great place to stay if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and spend some quite time enjoying the beach and the pool. The house also has a nice outdoor seating area with fans which makes it very comfortable for those that are not sun worshippers.

Also the air conditioning and fans in every bedroom was fantastic. This allowed everyone to get a good nights sleep based on their temperature preferences.

My only disappointment was the kitchen. Although it is very large and in a nice central location, there were only 5 coffee cups and no glasses (plenty of plastic cups). The gas stove in the main kithen (we didn't use the electric stove in the smaller kitchen) left black soot on all the pans and got on everything. The oven was impossible to use due to the strong gas smell and build up of debris inside that would catch on fire. There also was no BBQ.

I think this is a great house and is well suited for young families or those that are planning to eat out every night.

“Wonderful Family Reunion!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed here in June-awesome place-there were 10 of us but the house is so spacious!
Nice large modern kitchen to catch breakfast before some of the group went off surfing-great racks for stowing the boards-airconditioning in every room and large beautiful bathrooms. Playa Negra but also other great beaches not too far to catch waves-Playa Avellanas Beach and the infamous Lolas very close by. There were some great restaurants closeby- And a nice private pool to relax by at the end of a day whether surfing or zipling or horseback riding. Definitely check out the sup tour at Pargos Adventures-lots of fun!
