Everything about this beautiful on the beach house was wonderful. Everyday from morning to night there is the sound of the waves and the sound of breeze, warm tropical air with nature singing at your back door. I never saw the monkeys there but I heard them along with all the birds. The house is extremely comfortable and inviting. We traveled with my 11 and 13 year old daughter, my son 16 year old son and his 18 year old friend, and my mother and father in law. There was so much space for sleeping and very comfortable beds with AC in every room. The beach is beautiful everyday. The sunsets are postcards. We stayed nine days there. The waves are consistent. The boys sleep late everyday. They would wake up to check the waves and at low tide they were small so they would go back to bed, then by afternoon the tide was high and ripping. We took many walks along to beach pass the beautiful rock and tidal pools. We ate lunch at the local taco shop many times, from which you can walk to on the beach. The quiet reserve has a great surf shop that you can rent your boards from and what ever you need. There are great restaurants close by.
The staff that manages the house for the owners are wonderful. They make sure all your needs are meet. We had Kimberly cook for us one time and it was delicious. We made breakfast everyday and mostly ate out at the local restaurants. Our AC broke in one bedroom and with in two hours it was fixed. It happened two more times and they fixed it immedately. They are on site 24/7. Every time we needed something the property manager made it happen. They even produced a TV for us. My father in law could not miss the basket ball game. We played cards and relaxed here. You do need to lock up everything and hide valuables. There is a lot of peti theft in this area, but we never had a problem. We just made sure we did not leave anything out and doors open when no one was home.
The owner, Julie is awesome. She was very personable and managed our booking very professionally. Her property is wonderful and if you are going to Costa Rica to surf, relax on the beach and let the days drift by with beautiful sunsets, this is the place to stay. WE LOVED IT!

If you have never been to Costa Rica, be prepared for the roads. They are rough and directions are difficult. There are few signs and GPS does not work. There is an app that my mother in law got from a Costa Rican she met on the plane and it saved us many times. Do not drive far at night. Once you get to the Villa, you will not want to leave Playa Grande anyway. We took an afternoon in Tamerino and were so glad we did not stay there. BIG DIFFERENCE!

I did make a few recommendations to the owner Julie and the property manager to make this a even more perfect place to stay by deep cleaning the bottom of the above ground pool and providing more kitchen equipment.They were quick to let me know that they would take care of it. I know if I had mentioned this when we were staying there, that it would have been taken care of, but it was such a great vacation, it did not make a difference. So go with peace of mind this best place to stay in Playa Grande and the best owner, property manager and staff to work with. Julie is very trustworthy and professional! If we go back to Costa Rica we will stay here again! This place is absolutely the best place we have ever stayed and a great place to create everlasting memories with friends and family.Thank you Julie for sharing your little peace of paradise with us.

Liked best: The view and that it was in our back yard.
Liked least: Locking up everything all the time. Need locks for all the security boxes in bedrooms and one house key for the all the doors in the house . Gets a little confusing trying to keep up with all the keys.

“Just Perfect!”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Went with my cousins and their families 9 adults and 6 children (teens and toddlers) and we all had the best vacation ever!! The house is perfectly located with a beautiful beachfront and nice accommodations. The pictures in websites are just as it is in reality; Julie was fast and nice to answer all of my questions and concerns prior to booking the house; booking was fast and easy.
Jeffry and Urbano were reliable and fast in keeping everything working properly since beach houses need a lot of maintenance. We hired Kimberly for our breakfasts and late lunches and she was GREAT!! She is sooo nice and cooks delicious, we had her famous arroz con pollo and mariscada :)
We look forward to returning to this paradise!
