My name is Raymond and I bought this property because I love to body board, shoot photos of nature, and learn about new cultures. I love to spend time in Cost Rica with my friends and family. I have two dogs and I love to BBQ and walk the beach. I have owned this property for over 12 years, and it is one of the greatest places in the world.

When I am not in Costa Rica, I am in Lake Tahoe at my primary residence skiing and coaching at Squaw Valley. In the summers I enjoy hiking and water skiing in Tahoe.

Leeana Yonkers purchased this house in 1996

The house has a great setting that you just fall in love with plus is a great area for a vacation home, nice, clean and safe.

Ocean views, sunsets, surfing spots, the great gray sand beach, the ocean breeze, everything is just amazing.

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY, AMAZING VIEW!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently enjoyed a ten day vacation with our family of four at this property. It was our first time as a family to vacation in Costa Rica, and we all agreed at the end of our trip that this was definitely among our top favorite vacations.
The property is beautiful, and the view and beach are just amazing! At the time of our visit, we felt like we were practically on a private beach. The sunsets were breathtaking, and we loved being steps from the surf and long stretches of beach which allowed for walking, exploring, photos, etc.
This was such a relaxing vacation for our family. We enjoyed exploring parts of Costa Rica with an adventure tour including zip lining, horseback riding, white water tubing and a mud bath. The boys enjoyed a fishing trip, and we loved spending time in Tamarindo for shopping and some nice meals out. We loved getting to know Brittney at Taco Star down the beach; some of the best tacos ever! But our favorite part of the trip had to be the time we spent on this property. The staff is incredible, so kind, hospitable, and accommodating. Zulma is now our very favorite cook! Randy the gardener was awesome and brought us coconut waters and was so helpful with anything we needed around the property. And the night guard David was always on top of things; we felt completely safe the entire time being in a private home. There was someone on the property with us 24/7, which was so nice. They were never intrusive, just extremely helpful.
The living areas of the home are open air, which we weren't sure about at first. But we very quickly realized that we loved the fact that we could have doors open with the ocean just steps away. And the a/c in the bedrooms was divine! The pool area is fabulous with a Jacuzzi in one end. We loved having Zulma cook for us and so enjoyed having meals on the patio area around the pool.
If you are looking for a relaxing vacation that makes you feel pampered and at home, this is a great place to come. Not to mention the fact that you will feel like you're in paradise! We definitely plan to return!

FOR NATURE LOVERS!

  • 5 of 5
We have visited Costa Rica numerous times to visit family, and this is our favorite place to stay. The setting is gorgeous! The surf can be intimidating for kids, but they love the beach and the pool, so we have stayed here twice. We love the open air living area of the house, which is nothing fancy but perfect for the beach. The garden is special too. At low tide you can walk to a fabulous secluded cove with tide pools, beyond the pretty beach north of Playa Grande where a freshwater creek runs into the sea. Our travel dates were not available this year, so we have to go elsewhere, but I'm sure we'll be back.

GREAT HOUSE, AMAZING BEACH AND POOL

  • 5 of 5
Our family has visited this home many times over the years. Sometimes when we come back, we bring friends with us. Each time we go, it's like coming home. The staff is amazing and takes care of everyting. There is someone on the property 24/7. This is a single level home and very comfortable. The pool is just steps away from the back door and there are views of the ocean from every room. The beach is pristine. We have been many places and you won't find a nicer beach most anywhere. It's not a short walk but you can talk to town. You just have to take a water taxi at the end of the beach to get there. There is so much to explore in Costa Rica, but we are happy just to stay close, eat at the local restaurants and get to see the restaurant owners who we have seen on previous trips. Volcano Areanal is also a great road trip but you'll want to go for an overnight trip. Stop by Lucky Bug Gallery and B and B on your way to arenal. We plan to be back!

We had the best time at Carmela by the Sea. This was the best house and the location is primo. The beds were very comfortable and the swimming pool gorgeos. We had a great time in Costa Rica and loved this house. We surfed right outside. The beach was amazing and perfect for all our kids. Playa Grande was a great place to stay. We booked surf lessons as well as all our adventure tours through Frijoles Loco surf shop. They were very helpful. We highly recommend staying here!!

JUST BACK FROM PLAYA GRANDE

  • 5 of 5
8 of us - 4 adults and 4 kids (11,14,15,17) - just spent 4 nights at Casa Carmela on Playa Grande. We had a awesome time and would recommend this highly if the price falls within your budget. The location is unbeatable and the ammenities at the house more than you need. We could not find on-line reviews prior to booking, and were apprehensive but booked anyway, and we're very happy we did. They have a guest book at the house which contains 12 reviews, all glowing. We had spent the previous 11 days travelling from San Jose, to Malpais, Arenal, Monteverde and finally PG.All were great areas but PG was our favorite. When we arrived it was like stepping into an oasis... we really did not want to leave as nothing could beat the setting or be as relaxing. We did a few excursions in PG - there are lots- area but couldn't wait to get back to the house. Went to Tama but could have passed on it.

The pool was great and you could easily go back and forth to the beach. Lots of birdlife .... fisherman 100 metres to the right of the house, hand reeling in big fish and selling to owners of the few houses on the beach ( I think there re only 6 or 7). Fab sunsets (we'd watch from the wide veranda or drag loungers onto the beach itself) and sunrises.

Surfing/boogeyboarding was excellent. Nice gentle break directly in front of the house, a more challenging one 200 metres to the right and the toughest (and most crowded break - for excellent surfers only) a 5 minute walk to the left of the house in front of one of the single hotels. We rented boards from Matos in town. My son and I surf and the other 3 kids are learning - all got great rides in a totally uncrowded waves/wash. $15/day for a couple of glass longboards... boogeyboards were $10 ( a little much I thought. I liked the vibe at Matos... very laid back ( we dealt with Jason from Virginia Beach), good selection and a little cheaper than Frijoles who wanted $20 / day without same selection.

Kitchen was a little dated but it didn't bother us one bit! Big Costco BBQ worked well , although they could use new briquettes to distribute heat. Fridge was ice cold.

Staff was great... Zulma did laundry and dishes... she and gardner were always around but not intrusive. The night guard totally gave us peace of mind - if that is an issue - although they have never had any problems. We felt totally safe there.

All in all A-1 rental.
