This house was a wonderful and luxurious retreat for my family. Best of all, it was located within close proximity to Playa Avellanas (about 5 minutes to 12 minute drive, depending on which side of the beach you go to). I would happily stay here again!
Ok, so the location is close to everything Tamarindo. Beach, amazing restaurants, Tamarindo town, beach club, Marriot, etc... Gated community, beautiful homes spread far apart, you are in your own world inside the house and around the beautifully tiled pool, and when you want to hit the town, restaurants or stores it is just 10 min away. The house is really well designed and everything is the highest quality. I really didn't want to go home to my dumpy little shack in Encinitas after staying at 49 Las Brisas. Cannot say enough, and big thanks to whoever owns the place!!!
We stayed here the first week of January with another family (total of 8 people). It is really an amazing property! I definitely give it FIVE STARS!! Very spacious and comfortable. Clean! The beds, bedding and pillows were very comfortable. There are televisions in each bedroom. Loved the great room and kitchen area - it opens up to an indoor/outdoor patio and deck where you can barbeque. The beautiful pool is warm and inviting - it's surrounded by low palms which gives the backyard complete privacy. The home is beautifully designed and decorated, stocked with everything you would ever need! All of the bathrooms are very modern and include the waterfall-like shower heads. We took full advantage of the outdoor shower that is attached to one of the bedrooms.
The property is very centrally located. We drove down to the Beach Club every day and enjoyed beach excursions to the south and north. We drove in to Tamarindo a few times during our stay and it is just a short 12-15 minute drive. We ate dinner out every night and the restaurants are very close.
We had the best time here! I wanted to stay longer but the kids had to go back to school! Next time I will book for longer than a week :) We are looking very much forward to visiting again!
The house is even better than the photos! It is beyond amazing. We are a family of 4 and stayed with another family of 4 and still had plenty of space and privacy. The floorplan of the home is absolutely perfect and 5-star quality. All of the bathrooms have doors to the outside making the showers optional outdoor showers and one is a permanent outdoor shower: so cool and private! The gated grounds of the community where the home sits are spectacular, and the exclusive oceanfront beach club with huge sparkling pool and delicious restaurant/bar is resort-like and only about 5 minutes away. We saw many monkeys and iguanas which was so fun! The concierge service was extremely helpful in helping us book our day-trips and rental car. We highly recommend staying here and we will definitely be back! THANK YOU!
We had a fantastic time at Casa Rebecca and exploring Costa Rica. The home was in beautiful condition and the entire staff was more than helpful. They even brought by an extension cord to the house for us to use during our stay since the master bedroom did not have outlets by the headboard.
We enjoyed the beach club, a river boat trip in the rain forest and a catamaran ride out of Flamingo. All arranged for us by Cris. We also had fun exploring various beaches north or Tamarindo. Life at the house was also full of swimming and sunshine, an occasional thunder storm, fire flies at night and butterflies flitting around all day by the pool. My husband and son also enjoyed a couple days of golf and said the course was in excellent condition.
We did rent a car for the bulk of our stay and I do recommend that you rent a car unless you plan on only relaxing at the home.
Our trip was truly magical and we would do it all over again in a heart beat.
Thank you Casa Rebecca, Cris, Adriana and Jose. We look forward to visiting with you again.
We recently stayed at Casa Rebecca for our Costa Rica vacation...our 1st trip to CR. Loved the house...it was perfect for our 2 families of 4 (8 total)... we even had extra sleeping room. The kids in our group were all teens. Even though it's not beachside, it is a private, modern, new home that is a 1.5 mile walk or golf cart ride away from the Hacienda beach club or the JW Marriott and in a very safe, double gated neighborhood. A lot of wildlife around and fun to see and hear. Many new homes being built in this area too. Also the home was centrally located if you want to venture out to many surfing beaches (car rental or driver required). The concierge services that came with the home rental were also fantastic...from answering all of our pre-trip questions to helping to arrange in home cooked meals to tours to quickly taking care of a few items upon arrival (i.e...fan not working), and one of the highlights...golf cart rentals which provided hours of entertainment. We hope to return to Casa Rebecca on another trip.
We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica and staying at Casa Rebecca was our home away from home. We shared the house with another family (for a total of 9 people). The 4 teenage boys got their own room that was setup great with bunkbeds, xbox and a dark room for them to sleep in. The pool was great to cool off in. We all recommend this place and when we come back, we will look to stay here. This newer home is within a gated community with lots of open space- you can hear the howler monkeys. The beach club is a great place to hang out for the day- it is just about a few minutes drive from the house. The family and friends loved surfing at "little Hawaii" surf break in front of the club.
