About Chuck Kelly

In 1998, I found this slice of tropical paradise. Two years later I purchased the lot. In July of 2002, Phase 1 of Casa Ola Perfecta construction was complete. In 2005 the Cabana, Infinity edge pool, outdoor kitchen and full bath were added. There is nothing better than to have a good surf and come back and relax in the pool and watch the sets roll in set after set after set. Casa Ola Perfecta is Pura Vida!!

Chuck Kelly purchased this house in 2000

Why Chuck Kelly chose Guanacaste

The laid back atmosphere, beautiful tropical surroundings, quaint town, friendly locals and ease of access from the U.S. (2.25 hours from MIA, 3.25 hours from DFW).

What makes this house unique

World class surfing, unique tropical setting, incredible sunsets and all the comforts of (an oceanside) home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our third trip tio Casa OP in as many years, this time we were able to stay 4 weeks!!!!! The house is super and well maintained. I most enjoy floating in the pool and being able to watch Larry surf. We both look forward to the incredible sunsets every evening. Can't wait until next year. Thanks Casa OP and Playa Negra.

Our perfect vacation in paradise started before our arrival by receiving all the necessary information including accurate directions, available activities, favorite tourist spots, and dining options. Mary is your own personal concierge--she arranged for the refrigerator to be stocked and a catered meal to be waiting on our arrival, which was especially appreciated after a long day of travel. She also helped arrange zip lining, horseback riding on the beach, and yoga at the house. In addition to that, the house itself was amazing. From the sound of breaking waves to the pool hammock for afternoon naps, we enjoyed hanging out at the house as much as our excursions. It's also reassuring to be in a gated community. The main reason we chose Casa Ola Perfecta was for the surf, and it doesn't disappoint. Whether you literally go out right in front of the house, walk five minutes south, or drive five minutes to Playa Avellenas the surfing is good just about any time of day. Our family (boys 14 and 12 and daughter 5 years old) had an amazing time, and part of the experience was the house, Mary, and Chuck. We highly recommend this place if you want a great beach/surf/relaxing vacation. It was truly Pura Vida.

Great House Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house has an amazing view of Playa Negra so when were weren't surfing we were always in touch with the conditions and enjoying watching the ocean. There are only a handful of other houses around so there is a wonderful feeling of being perched on a secluded coastline. At the same time, it is a very easy and pleasant drive to Playa Avellana and Tamarindo. There are also a number of good places to eat within 10-15 minute drive.

The house is in a small gated community with a security guard at the gate on the road. The house can be completely secured/locked when you leave for the day. We never worried about breakins. The house is super comfortable and stocked with everything you need. The pool and patio area below are awesome. Great to just hang out at the house and relax in between outings. Highly recommend this place.

Awesome, totally awesome

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week there with 3 friends for a surfing trip. Obviously the surf and waves speak for themselves - hard to beat anywhere! The house is GREAT: very clean, very spacious, very modern and luxurious in it's amenities. Everything "worked" (i.e. the water, electricty, AC, wi-fi, satellite TV, pool, ping pong table...) and that made the trip even more relaxing and satisfying. The location on a cliff overlooking the Pacific is breathtaking, the natural beauty of Playa Negra is incredible! The fact that the house is in a secure neighborhood is great, we could drive up to Avellanas to surf and feel secure that things were safe and looked after. There are great places to eat in Negra and a quick trip to Tamarindo stocked us up for food and supplies for the week - very easy and convenient. You won't find a better place to enjoy the beach, sunset, coast and surf in Costa Rica!! I HIGHLY recommend this property - 5 big stars!

Luxury retreat

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a surf trip with my 3 friends. This house turned out to be perfect for us. We couldn't wait to wake up and check out the surf at Negra. The talent is amazing to watch when this break goes off. We checked out multiple breaks in the area. I like the fact that the house is in a secure neighborhood, so we could take off for the day surfing with no worries. Negra has great places to eat with enough shops to get you by. Tamarindo is only a short drive to stock up on supplies for the week. The place was really awesome.

Family Fun, Great Surf!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here last week. My kids are 7 and 11. We had such an amazing experience. The pool alone was used at least twice per day for probably 4 hours. We would explore the beach just steps from the house in the morning and afternoon. The kids loved playing with the hermit crabs that are everywhere. The beaches are so much fun, with boogie boarding, surfing, and just playing in the waves. We also would love to sit on the porch and watch the surfers get walloped by the big sets rolling in. The house is super, with a/c units in each room to keep everybody comfortable. The bedrooms are layed our really well, with an awesome bunk room for the kids. When not exploring, we watched TV and worked on internet. Although we cooked several meals in the kitchen, we also went to many of the nearby food joints, and they were fantastic. This is a great house for surfers for sure, but also for families that want a great place to enjoy an awesome beach vacation.

I can't say enough about our wonderful vacation to Costa Rica and the fabulous experience with Casa Ola Perfecta. Not only is the house and location perfect, you get a fabulous friend in Mary to help with your every need. We spent the majority of our time at "sandy beach" with the kiddos (ages 4, 7 & 9) while my sweet husband was able to surf the much raved about Playa Negra break several times a day, every day. I could relax on the gorgeous beach while watching the kids play in the gentle surf AND watch my husband catch some great rides just 200 yards away. Perfection!! One afternoon the kids and I swam while watching my husband surf. Yep, that's right. We watched him catch wave after wave from the amazing infinity pool. The house is gorgeous, the view is out of this world and the outdoor kitchen and pool were heavenly! The town is small but we enjoyed that. We weren't looking for a bustling tourist town. We loved the bread/pastry truck and fish truck that come straight to your door. No need to leave town. Mary's recommendations were spot on. We attempted a meal out at a place not on her list of recommendations and we were sadly let down. Lesson learned ... Listen to Mary! The guards at the gate were super friendly and never once did we not feel safe. The house was very family friendly and had lots of board games and even an Xbox for the kids. We can't think of one negative point to mention other than 8 nights just wasn't long enough! ;) We can't wait to come back again to Costa Rica and Casa OP. Pura Vida!!

Top fav local points to mention:

Restaurant Latinos (Patacones!!)

Gelato at Playa Negra Hotel

Custom made bikinis by Marvel

Restaurant Buena Vida (great pizza!!)
