Lovely home away from home

We had a wonderful 7 day stay at Casa Carole. The bedrooms are large and the air-conditioners are quiet; the kitchen is well stocked with nice dishware, glasses, cutlery and appliances; the shared area is comfortable, roomy and breezy; the outdoor sitting area is lush and private, hammock is comfy. Wifi makes Internet access easy. Bikes are one-speed and perfectly adequate for cruising around to check out the area. Boogie boards and fins are available. The walk to the beach is more like 10 minutes, but it is a pleasant walk, always a chance to see birds and iguanas. We went to the beach 3-4 times a day, returning to the cool sanctuary of Casa Carole for a break from the sun. Outdoor shower and foot faucet make sand removal easy. Hotel Bula Bula is close by with great Mango Margaritas and charming staff. Playa Grande is gorgeous, with endless waves, and lots of wide open space. Playa Grande Surf Camp is near by with flexible deals for beginners. A great location in paradise with a reasonable price.

A Little Slice of Paradise

It was hard to leave this lovely little piece of paradise after spending 7 days feeling at home at Casa Carole! Everything was as expected when we arrived - complete kitchen, big bedrooms, cozy living room with a nice little patio surrounded by lush gardens overlooking a refreshing swimming pool. Felt very private despite being shared by others in the six-villa complex. We loved how close a walk it was to the glorious beach (5 minutes max) and amazed at how uncrowded it was. Gorgeous sunsets and fabulous surf (boogie boards provided by Casa Carole). This little neighbourhood in Playa Grande is removed from the busy-ness of Tamarindo yet just a water taxi ride away. A very short walk to the grocery store kept us stocked up on all we needed and with Hotel Bula Bula just down the road, an evening drink with the local neighbours would wrap up our days spent out an adventure or just sitting by the pool with a good book and the sound of nature all around us. Alyssa, the property manager, was just a phone call away and she was helpful both with any household questions or helping secure our tours for the week. Wi-fi was available without any service issues or interruptions - just like home! Casa Carole also had lots of board games to keep busy in case of rain - (which we didn’t get) and A/C in the bedrooms so sleeping and napping were no problem in the heat.
I will definitely be back!

Wonderful Week

We spent a wonderful week at Casa Carole, the villa is exactly as described and it a tropical paradise. It is very private with a wonderful pool steps from the villa. We found everyone friendly and very helpful and more than willing to provide suggestions on the many activities to do. Carole's directions and suggestions were all very accurate. The beach is a 5 min walk away and provides hours of relaxation and wonderful sunsets, we joined the locals daily to see the changing colors. We had a great mix of activies and pure relaxation, the nearby hotel has great food and lively bar which seems to be the local meeting place, I highly recommend the house special Margarita! We rented a car for the last couple of days and explored other local beaches and had great adventures each day. One of the many highlights was our Canopy tour. It was a great week and would recommend it without hesitation.

Great Bang for the Buck

Quiet, laid back vacation perfect for very early morning walks along the beach and nightly sunset watching. Howler monkeys can be heard and seen making their way through the treetops. Quiet nights except for the occasional carrying on of the howlers during the night. Casa Carole was clean, comfortable ... beautiful gardens ... exotic birds ... great manager always willing to answer questions, give suggestions for outings, etc. We did rent a car to explore the region and made a two day trip to Arenal Volcano and the Santa Elena area. Be prepared for the heat ... if you are planning to walk the beach, do so very early in the morning - by 6:00 a.m. and plan to have a long siesta in the heat of the day.

Paradise

Awesome stay at Casa Carole. Carole has done an awesome job of making the house feel like it is your little paradise during your stay.

The listing is very accurate, very clean and well-maintained (pictures are exact replica of how it looks). She also provides helpful information for the amenities/activities around Playa Grande so you aren't lost for any activities, if you get tired of lounging by the beautiful pool listening to the birds chirping or walking along the beach watching the breathtaking sunset.

Highly recommend that you book your stay and do it fast. It's a real bargain for what you get in glorious Costa Rica.
