This was our third trip to Costa Rica and our first in Playa Negra. Casa Ventana del Mar was by far the nicest place we've ever stayed, and now we're wondering how soon we can come back to it! My husband is a lifelong surfer, and the break in front of the hotel did not disappoint. The house welcomes you home with a nice outdoor shower (two more in the house), a lovely pool, great for watching the sunset while staying cool, and lovely views from the upper patio. There are intriguing tidepools just beyond the house, and 180-degree ocean views with nothing between you and the ocean! The photos almost don't do the house justice. Within the house, the open concept of the modern kitchen and living room made for lounging comfort while preparing dinner. There is a guestbook full of great information on everything from restaurants to shopping. The bedroom AC made sleeping easy even on the hottest of nights and beds were comfy (plenty of pillows, too - important for us!). The house was well provisioned! Little amenities such as the cooler and plenty of ice made it easy for us to take picnics on our beach explorations. A lot of thought went into providing Casa guests well appointed and there's nothing I'd add. I also loved that the stove was gas - ideal for serious cooks. The blender got a workout - fruit stands in Tamarindo provided the stuff of delicious tropical drinks enjoyed on the patio! Lastly, the privacy factor was great. In the rancho, this house is on the far north out of the fray of passerby on their way to the beach. It was always private and we appreciate the added security of the house when we were away. Thank you for thinking of everything, and to Mary/Brenda of Beach Grass Rentals for their added hospitality arriving/departing.
