We spent about a week at Casa Olas Perfecta and it was perfect! The house had a great view of the Playa Negra surf spot line up, and it took all of 90 seconds to walk to the paddle out spot. I couldn't bring my surfboard but Mary set me up with a local surf shop and had a surfboard delivered to the house. The house had excellent AC, comfortable beds, and an awesome pool with great outdoor kitchen. The water slide and the ping pong table were definitely nice amenities.

Few tips: the house is very secluded and there is not much around. better have a car or buy all the groceries you need before you get to the house if you don't have a car.

I think it was a fluke, but I did find a capped syringe on the beach in front of the house.

Most of the local surfers, especially the younger ones, were nice and chill, but the middle aged locals were kind of nasty. I also met this American who lives there now and does surf tours who surfs real early (6am) and blatantly dropped in on me, probably on purpose. Overall, I did get my share of waves but left a little turned off by the locals. House was great though!

This house has everything! Stayed here over Spring Break with 4 adults (mid-40s) and 5 kids (14, 14, 13, 11 and 7). Layout of house is perfect, room for everyone, very clean. From top to bottom-- 3rd floor deck: drinks at sunset, kids loved stargazing, too. 2nd floor deck was our breakfast area. Kitchen had everything we needed, including spices, oils, etc. for cooking. Beds were comfortable. Kids loved the bunk room. Plenty of towels. Office-style water coolers on both levels gave us cold water anytime. 1st floor the best -- 2nd kitchen, bathroom and the pool! Lots of space to hang out and plenty of shade for mid-afternoon. Pool gets cleaned daily. Loved the proximity to the beach -- kids loved looking for sea creatures in the tidepools at low tide. Short walk to resort restaurant with outdoor dining. BEST PART: MARY was so helpful. She was available whenever we had a question and helped plan activities. Mary booked us a snorkeling trip and day trip to Rincon de la Vieja, which everyone enjoyed (great price, includes horseback riding, ziplining, mud bath, whitewater tubing, hot springs -- a guide stayed with our youngest for the tubing and horseback riding). Both were well worth it, perfect vacation days. We loved Mary's recommended local restaurants. Local town was very friendly. Local store had everything we needed for breakfasts and lunch (we stocked up at supermarket in Liberia). Dirt roads can be really bumpy -- get an SUV and GPS (roads not well marked). We also booked Chef Michelle one night thru Mary and had dinner by the pool. Well worth it! Oh, also loved the pastry truck!

“Wonderful family vacation with our adult children”

person found this review helpful

This is a perfect spot for a family vacation. The beach is beautiful and hidden away. We drank coffee on the deck every morning, walked the beach, surfed and hung out around the pool. Dinners were served beside the pool or in the air-conditioned dining room The house was the perfect size for 8 adults to hang out in. If you need a meal cooked for you Michelle was dynamite. Mary and her staff made everything run smoothly. I would recommend this beautiful setting for anyone who wants to enjoy the sun, surf and a beautiful sunset in Costa Rica without a beach full of people. Fabulous

“fANTASTIC!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

My wife and I have stayed in villas all over the world and we agreed that Casa Ola Perfecta was better than advertised. Everything was perfect. The views from the balcony was worth the trip alone. The infinity pool was cleaned every day and enjoyed every day. During the day we would take 3-4 hour day trips but we could not wait to get back to the villa. We would recommend Casa Ola Perfecta to anyone wanting a high end villa at a affordable price when visiting Costa Rica.

“Great place to unwind and enjoy a vacation”
Reviewed January 29, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We had a great time in Costa Rica and Casa Ola Perfecta was a big part of the reason.

Traveling as a couple, this house was more than we needed to be happy. However, when you compare the cost of a quality hotel or condo it was an easy choice.

The location overlooking the ocean only steps away, the pool, the multiple decks, and seeing the gorgeous night sky light up with stars was everything we could have asked for ...and much more.

Its quiet, private and only a short drive to Tamarindo if you are looking for nightlife and fun.

I would highly recommend this property and Mary is great to work with.

“Magnificent view over the ocean”
Reviewed January 11, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Casa Ola Perfecta is the perfect spot to enjoy a family or friends gateway whether or not you are surf champions. Wonderful open space around the large pool right over the ocean.
Unfortunately windows don't open in the rooms and at night the AC replaces the sound of the waves.
Ads don't lie ! It really looks like on the pictures, even better.

“Greatest House in all of Costa Rica”
Reviewed September 25, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Amazing views, Great Surf, and a very helpful property manager! I have been vacationing in Costa Rica every year for the last 10 years and this is by far the best property I have ever had stayed in. The house is extremely clean and well kept. I will make a point to stay here again every time I visit Costa Rica!
