The trip to Costa Rica with a week long stay at Beachgrass rentals was wonderful. Our family wanted to experience a warm tropical location that was safe, beautiful, and affordable. We opted to visit Playa Negra, which is south of Tamarindo along the Northern West Coast of Costa Rica. Our accommodations were scenic, comfortable, and safe in a gated community on the beach. We made friends and enjoyed our stay being surrounded by an environment that is reminscent of tropical U.S. locations such as Hawaii, California, and Florida before commercialization. There were many English speaking visitors at the Liberia airport, making it apparent that Costa Rica is quickly becoming a favorite alternative to the now risky vacation spot of Mexico. Mary, the manager at Beachgrass rentals is helpful, honest, courteous, speaks both English and Spanish, and totally understands the area and the needs of a visiting family. We flew in to the Liberia airport, picked up our avis car rental (everyone spoke English), and drove the hour long drive to Playa Negra along the scenic Pacific ocean. The car rental, restaurants, and gas stations all accepted credit cards and U.S. dollars. All of the people we met in Playa Negra and Tamarindo, Costa Rica are friendly, kind, and many speak English as well as Spanish. It was a great experience! I would highly recommended a visit to Costa Rica for everyone seeking an enjoyable vacation. We will definitely be visiting Costa Rica again in the near future. Best Wishes!
Casa Ventana has everything you need for a very comfortable stay in lovely Playa Negra. The kitchen is clean, large and well equipped. The ac is chilly. There is plenty of hot water. The house has a satellite tv and speedy wifi. The pool is pretty and was always the perfect temperature. The house has a large wrap-around porch which was the perfect place to enjoy the spectacular ocean views, flawless sunsets and cooling breezes. Every time we pulled into the driveway we remarked how much we loved our cute sea-side casa. It felt like home. Mary (the manager), the maintenance staff, the cleaning staff and the security team were excellent. We felt very safe and well cared for. Highly recommended!
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.
My wife and I and 2 friends stayed at this outstanding beachfront home and had a perfect vacation. We should have added an extra week since we had such a hard time leaving. The location of the home is very private and we were able to view fantastic sunsets silhouetting the pelicans skimming over the waves. The house is new, well designed, nicely equipped and beautiful. I was so impressed with the bathroom tile work and artistic details.Although the pictures on the site are good, they don't convey what a truly awesome place this is. A short Walk away is a thatched beach bar hotel with good food and drink. Located on a great beach for beach-combing and surfing. This was the perfect place to spend our vacation I would recommend this rental to a friend and we are returning ourselves this vacation.
The Hacienda Pinilla Golf Course and Tennis Club is just a 15 minute drive. Treat yourself to a day at the Spa de Eros overlooking the coast line, enjoy 3 special body treatments and a gourmet lunch and use of the hotel, just 25 minute drive from the house and well worth every penny. Great way to spend a girl day!
