Casa de Luz was everything we could have imagined and more! The grounds are absolutely stunning. The pool is the perfect temperature and depth and we spent hours admiring the view of the ocean from the pool and the beautiful furniture at the beach. We stayed at the house for my sister's wedding. It was so magical. Beyond the beautiful backdrop of the ocean for the wedding, the house was the perfect size for our large family. The views from every window are gorgeous.The 2 casitas were an added bonus and provided some privacy for the bride and groom! The A.C. worked perfectly and the house was always cool and comfortable. The interior is well appointed and beautiful while being comfortable. The property is well maintained and cared for by the cleaning lady, Zaida, and groundskeeper, Cesar.
Although the house and scenery were perfect, the real star of the vacation was the concierge, Aly. She was instrumental in making our vacation as seamless and perfect as possible. From the moment we booked she was available to help us plan our vacation and answer questions about the house, the area, and Costa Rica! She got back to us quickly, offered options and clearly answered any questions we had. She set up amazing activities for us using her preferred rate which also saved us a lot of money. Aly went out of her way to make the vacation magical and amazing. We hope to come back and highly recommend this property (and Aly)!
14 family members converged from all parts of the US. Aly was fantastic to work with and made sure everything was ready when we arrived. After several email exchanges, she also helped ensure that we had all of our activities arranged. From sailing to zipping and hiking it was a great week
The house is as pictured and perfect for large groups. Great cental areas with plenty of private space too.
This is a fantastic location.
We stayed at Casa De Luz for our Destination Wedding at Langosta beach. What a beautiful beachfront villa! The house comfortably slept up to 16 family members and friends. The villa was very private and was able to accommodate an incredible 40 person reception. We were married in early April at Cala Luna Point just down the beach and later used the poolside for dancing and jungle clearing for dinner. We also had our rehearsal dinner on the main floor of the house the day before. The sunset from the villa was an absolute dream every single day and made for the most amazing pictures! You can watch the waves crash on the rocks from the pool. There is nothing like it! We couldn't have found a better reception and vacation home to share seven days in paradise and such wonderful memories. The service was excellent, with maid and grounds service daily. Aly was there to help arrange and assist with anything and everything! We highly recommend Stay in Tamarindo, such a great company full of amazing people, and Casa De Luz the best property in Langosta for a wedding event or group vacation, and a beautiful estate. We will certainly be back for an anniversary/reunion! Also, the B&B Suenos del Mar next door is a must for three-course breakfast, and if you are looking for catering we highly recommend Belly Fed Better who we had the pleasure of using all week!
This house did not disappoint! My husband and I booked this house for our wedding and stayed for 5 nights. There were 12 of us total ranging in age from 11-71 and the house was perfect for everyone! I think the highlight of the house was listening and watching the wildlife that came around the house. Many birds and interesting (even cute!) looking reptiles were all around. The best were the howler monkeys! We were able to watch them on multiple occasions as they crossed the trees in front of the house.
The house and grounds are clean. Zaida and Cesar do a great job and are very helpful! You feel very safe in the house as it's gated and the house itself is secured with an alarm system. We made several meals on our own and the kitchen is well stocked with any and all cooking utensils/equipment you may need.
Then there's Aly! She is wonderful to work with! She quickly replied to all my questions and messages I sent her! She helped me plan my wedding by getting me in contact with everyone I needed. I told her what I wanted and she found some awesome people! She arranged for transportation to and from the airport and booked our fun excursions! My husband and I stayed an extra 5 nights in Costa Rica and she even arranged a rental car for us for that portion of our trip.
Overall, it was a great vacation! The wedding was wonderful, with the beach and ocean as our backdrop! Thank you to everyone!
I came for my 40th birthday with 20 people - 11 adults and 9 kids. It was so perfect because we each had our own bedroom with full bathroom. Everything in this house is well thought out and in superb condition. We had been traveling prior and it was so refreshing and relaxing to come here and have it all taken care of. The housekeeping service daily was fantastic! We even hired a cook to come for breakfast and dinner which made it easier to relax and not worry about cooking and cleaning. The excursions booked by Aly were perfect and we ended with couples massages at the house overlooking the beach. I would love to come back one day. I cannot think of one flaw with this house and service. Oh and it's not mentioned much but the snorkeling right outside is the best in Tamarindo. When the tide is low, we went out with the kids and could touch so it made it easy to teach them how to snorkel. We saw a variety of fish, eels and octopus.
The house was simply amazing the beds were comfortable, Very clean. I highly suggest hiring Patricia the cook for the house every meal that she prepared was amazing. Need to request her fresh chips and Guacamole it is was AMAZING.
The pool was clean and very refreshing after our daily adventures.
We traveled with a very large group (18 people) and this house accommodated all of very comfortable .
Our adventures included
Horseback riding and snorkeling 5 star
Fishing 3 star Only because we did not catch any keepers
Adventure day is an amazing day long day but worth it 5 star
Photo Adventure With Bryan 5 star another amazing day
River tour with Lunch at Los Coyotes Rancho 5 star the food and trip was amazing.
Can not wait till we visit Costa Rica again the country has so much to offer.
I have stayed in many places, throughout many lands and peoples. This one place, however, blew my mind off. Literally. Ultra-luxury, comfort, esthetics, a beach in my backyard, cleanliness, service -- I'm still speechless; I rub my eyes a little to see if this sunbeam of a residence, were no illusion, but the solid sense of the pictures we've taken, is a sobering certainty.
Without Casa de Luz, Costa Rica would be a mistake.
