I've been traveling down to CR for several years and this is one of the best villas we've rented. Its far enough from town to have some peace and quiet, but close enough that it wasn't a chore to venture in. I recommend it for anyone! During low tide, you can even stroll into town via the beach, but I'm certain its impossible during high tide.
The grounds were clean and safe and we had no issues at all. The gate to the property locks at night and the car and personal items in the house were of no concern. The beach was pristine and the sunsets were perfectly amazing.
We received the chef service for two meals each day and they were great! They even accommodated for the food allergies! (Celiacs take note) For our dinners in town, Aly took care of us with recommendations and we found those restaurants superb.
It was a great visit and I will consider another trip in the future.
My family of 15 rented this house for the week. It was absolutely perfect. There was enough space for us to move around, the pool was wonderful and the house beautiful. We had many meals prepared by the wonderful chef Patricia and the grounds were nicely maintained by Ceasar. The housekeeper was fantastic as well. We ziplined, surfed, went horseback riding, etc. A terrific family vacation. I would highly recommend this house. Ally was terrific in making all our arrangements.
My Wife and I took the whole family to Casa De Luz in Dec 2016 (15 total people). The house accommodated us nicely. The property was very well maintained (only minor issue was hot water did not work in the Casita but not a big deal as there were plenty of showers in the main house). The onsite staff did a nice job but does not speak English and they keep a low profile. When you needed to you can communicate with them fine. The cook Patricia was excellent and every meal was enjoyed by all, even by the finicky eaters. She prepared two breakfast' and 5 dinners. All were excellent. And finally, Aly was a great Concierge to deal with. She arranged excursions, dinner reservations (2 nights), and all transportation for excursions and airport transfers. She also arranged a rental car that was dropped off and picked up at the house which was very convenient. Aly recommended a private 52' Sail Boat Sunset cruise which was the highlight of the trip. The crew on the boat were exceptional and the boat itself is in great shape. Highly recommended! Actually for large groups I recommend this house as you will not be disappointed.
Our group of 17 stayed in this amazing rental the second week of December and loved it! Not only were there plenty of comfortable bedrooms for everyone to relax and make themselves at home in, but spacious common areas to enjoy together. We made great use of the large kitchen cooking a few meals daily and the infinity pool was perfect for relaxing after surfing twice a day. Aly was super helpful in making sure we knew how the house worked, wifi in the three separate houses (front house, large main house and pool house), and even had a great chef she recommended to cook a few meals for us. Really enjoyed our experience!
We had a large group (17) that we were bringing for a company trip. The house was spacious and comfortable, the amenities (wifi, pool, speakers, etc.) were all great and the staff was amazing. If you're looking for a large place to host an event or get away this is definitely a great choice.
We spent the week of Thanksgiving in that house and everything was great. From the pool and beach to the house keepers and the private chef. The concierge Aly was very accommodating and helped us with everything we could think of! Definitely will recommend!
9 of us came to Casa Luz to have a 3 day celebration of my daughter's recent wedding. The house and its locationwas just perfect. The house was quite spacious with large bedrooms with incredible ocean views. The ocean was waiting for us just outside the gate of the house. There was also an infinity pool that was used bright and early every morning before breakfast! Everyone also loved walking to Tamarindo, which is a very charming town. 4 of us took surf lessons and became "hooked" on surfing. Having such a great time at Casa Luz, we plan to return next year!
