I stayed at Casa Ventana in early Sept. 2014 for a surf trip. I have been visiting playa negra for 15 years but have never stayed in rancho playa negra (the housing development where this rental is located). Rancho playa negra is nice in that there is a guard at the gate to make sure that no one enters who does not belong. It is located in the tiny town of Los Pargos which is right before Playa negra when you are heading south from Tamarindo/Avellanas. 5-10 minutes to Avellanas (one of the most beautiful beaches in Guanacaste) and 30 mins from Tamarindo where you can find ATM's, shops, and nightlife. Tamarindo is also one of the best places in the world to learn how to surf because the waves are small and clean. This rental is oceanfront but it sits on a small cliff over not much of an actual beach. I did not take the time to explore enough to see if there is beach access from the property. I just opted to make the 3 minute drive to playa negra hotel every morning for my surf sessions. It is very easy and convenient. The house was nice with a rustic vibe. Two a/c rooms and a loft over the kitchen that gets relatively cool at night. The pool is nice and so is the long big balcony that overlooks it. I enjoyed my stay thoroughly and have no complaints at all. If you do not have a neighbor to the south, you will be very secluded and private. I loved that about the rental.
Casa Ventanas del Mar is located one and a half hours away from Daniel Oduber International Airport. The house is within walking distance to restaurants (10-15 minutes), beaches (5-10 minutes) and great surfing. Tamarindo is only 30 minutes away, with great shopping, restaurants and night life.
Other Activities: Activities available in the area include zip line canopy tours, ATV tours, horseback riding, surf and stand-up paddle lessons, board rentals, sunset catamaran tours, and deep sea fishing. Farther away but worth visiting is Rincon de la Vieja National Park (2 hours), which boasts waterfalls, hot springs, and miles of hiking trails.
Golf: Hacienda Pinilla, located about 30 minutes from Casa Ventanas del Mar, boasts a spectacular 18-hole golf course located right on the Pacific Ocean. Relax at the clubhouse after a round on the most beautiful golf course you've ever played!
