UNBELIEVABLE!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were joined by another couple and stayed in the downstairs rooms. We had the times our our lives. The house is perfect for couples, families, surfers...whatever you want. We literally surfed everyday right out in from of the house. We're already looking to book another trip to Villa De La Roca. Alan and Kathy were great. I highly recommend this location!

WONDERFUL PLACE TO CHILL

  • 5 of 5

I have known Alan and Kathy for over 15 years and I book at least 4 long weekends every year for my surfing family. This place is Simple Magic! Paradise is the word to describe this small corner of the world. There are very few places like this in the whole country.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I loved this home, we were there for 10 day, invited family to visit for 1/2 the time and enjoyed our time very much, long walks on the beach everyday, beautiful sunsets every night. Kathy and Alan, were spot on with description of the property. We look forward to going again next year!!! Playa Grande offers several restaurants within walking distance. Tamarindo fun for day trips. Many fun things to do within driving distance, Kathy and Alan offered several fun trips for a great value!

Almost paradise

  • 4 of 5

We rented for a week during Spring Break. In our group, we had an eldery person who was not steady on her feet, a teenager and a little girl who loved the pool. We rented the whole villa and had plenty of space. Unfortunately, the next door neighbors were remodeling their house and it was extremaly noisy. The construction sounds were so loud we could hear them from the beach! This was very unforunate, because this house is amazing. The BEST views, plenty of fresh air, confortable (but a little rustic) accomodations. A few bugs and ants (like everywhere in the tropics), but a beautiful garden and magnificient beach. The owners were friendly, helpful and very understanding when we told them that the sound from the construction was to much for us. We paid only for the days we stayed, no drama, no problems. For the rest of our trip we wished we were back at Villa De La Roca (minus the construction next door!) We will rent again and warmly recommend a stay at this beautiful house.

Pros - excellent beach/location, courteous hosts; Cons - property/furniture could use an upgrade

  • 4 of 5

We (2 adults and a 2 1/2 year old child) stayed at Alan's and Kathy's house for 3 nights in May. The house is right on the beach and Playa Grande is fantastic, very secluded, private and huge beach, 5 stars! We had the top floor for us which has the master bedroom and 1 bathroom. It also has a loft with extra beds, small living room, kitchen and a huge outside veranda. The veranda is awesome and the views gorgeous, lots of wind too. The master bedroom had A/C and was useful because it was very hot during the time we were there (high of 35-37°C / 95-100°F). The pool was clean and had nice depth, however not for very small kids. The kitchen was well equipped though it could've used a microwave instead of a conventional oven. Kitchen didn't have any kind of condiments and it would've been better if it had the basic items stored (at least sugar, salt, pepper, may be coffee etc.). Some of the furniture is old and broken and could use some refurbishment as well. There is free Wi-Fi (spotty inside) and a small TV which gives you DirecTV programming from the US.

Alan and Kathy are very courteous and were helpful with all our needs. I think the housekeeping lady comes once a week. If you are annoyed by harmless insects or ants then it’s not the place for you. There are a few here and there, which never really bothered us. The place isn't really child proof (may be not for very young kids) but we were fine with it. Parking is on street, which is right outside of the gate. We found the area to be safe. Tamarindo is half an hour drive (20 kms) or you can go to the south end of beach (3-4 kms) and take the boat.

I have lived in the tropics for more than 20 years and this house reminded me of my granduncle's rustic home where I spent a lot of time growing up, very nostalgic. Loved the trees, the shades and the red tile flooring. I really want to leave 5 stars for this property, and once it gets a refurbishment it’s definitely a 5 star!

The place is great!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been here twice and both the house and the beach are great, Alan and Kate very nice and is like staying at the beach because it's just right there. I love surfing now because of this place, its the best to stay in PG. About a comment I read I want to give an advice, the best surf trainer of the area is Santiago, I had a hard time with other classes but he was the only one able to put me over the surfing table and actually surf, ask for him, everybody around knows him and call him Santi...
