Beautiful property! We were a party of 8 adults and this was our first trip to Costa Rica. The five bedrooms/bathrooms were clean with all the amenities and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. We enjoyed the pool every day and used the covered dining for eating or playing cards. The beach (which is a very short walk) is beautiful! Many shells to find and the water was warm to boogie-board. On a “bad day” we saw eight other people in the distance on the beach. You really feel like you’re on your own private beach.
We had a chef (Yani) cook breakfast and dinner one night – her cooking was excellent!
Shawna and Jorge, the property managers, helped us get the house stocked with some groceries prior to our arrival and were helpful in getting our excursions scheduled.
We are glad we stayed at Casa de Amigos. This house is perfect for a large family/guests that offers a safe, secluded feeling, yet close to the town of Tamarindo for shopping and dining.
We enjoyed a spectacular week at Seabreeze Casa. The home was beautiful and comfortable, and every bit as beautiful as the pictures. You absolutely need a 4WD vehicle to access the property - we got used to the drive during our stay, but it was a bit scary the first time we drove it. Bob gave us great directions and was kind enough to meet us on the highway and have us follow him in. We appreciated his suggestions on activities and his responsiveness to any question or need that arose.
One thing we didn't fully understand before our arrival was that the second bedroom in the "main house" is only accessible by the outside - this might be important for some families to consider when figuring out where everyone is going to sleep. The wi-fi didn't work in the lower-level room, so the person sleeping there would be disconnected from everyone else (which also could be a good thing!).
We enjoyed all of Bob's rescue animals, and our kids wanted to bring Bindi and Jenny home with us. One of the most memorable moments was meeting Casper the sloth - we were so grateful to Bob for sharing her with us!
Overall, we had a terrific time it was amazing to stay at Seabreeze Casa and experience the exceptional and memorable retreat created by Bob and Bea. Thank you!
