About Jarrod Guidry and Meaghan Foley

Somo Unos located in Playa Negra, Guanacaste Costa Rica, is a beautiful oceanfront home!

Why Jarrod Guidry and Meaghan Foley chose Guanacaste

Playa Negra is a special place, it's not too crowed, it's not too slow it's just the right amount of fun and excitement that I looked for in a vacation area. There is amazing surfing, fishing, beach combing and much more activities all around Playa Negra!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Amazing....the only word I can use to describe our experience when we rented Casa Somos Uno in Play Negra, Costa Rica. The accommodations were everything we expected and more. The ocean view from the house was unforgettable as well as the snorkeling. The food and quaint shops in Playa Negra were great. Thank you for everything and we are looking forward to visiting again soon.



Sincerely,



Lance

Unbelievable Vacation: plenty of R&R for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible home and an amazing location! We had a family vacation of a lifetime at Casa Somos Uno and no one wanted to leave! Jarrod and Meaghan absolutely helped us make the most of our trip and were incredibly accessible for all questions and more than happy to help!

The home is well equipped with everything you would possibly need and then some! Honestly to fully explore the area we needed much more time than the week we stayed there.

We stayed in March with 2 families total (4 adults and 4 kids (ages 9-12) and would definitely come back!

We loved exploring the natural beauty and the laid back and welcoming atmosphere of Playa Negra, made day trips to Avellanas, traveled up to Rincon and sailed from Tamarindo

Family Vacation Surfing Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Casa Somos Uno over the Christmas holiday this year. After spending the last few Christmas vacations in the Nosara area, we decided to save ourselves the long drive and stay closer to the Liberia airport and enjoy the best surfing available in Costa Rica by staying right on the beach in Rancho Playa Negra. It was truly spectacular. Our property managers, Jarrod & Meagan were "above and beyond" helpful and the beachfront home was spacious, open and spectacular-- not to mention the most magnificent panoramic views of the Guanacaste coast. We hope to return every year. A very special thanks to the owners for the plush bath towels, beach towels, upgraded linens, well equipped kitchen, super comfy beds and all the books, games and wifi/TV for chilling out after the beach!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation home and location! Great beaches abound near by. Fantastic beach combing right in front. Spectacular views. Very comfortable. We were worried about the small pool. But it was perfect. Just a quick dip to cool off then back into a lounge chair. A bigger pool is unnecessary. Also close to great zip lining, fishing, cruises, and other adventures. Lots of great restaurants also close by; from pizza to lunch on the beach to fine french dining (Villa Deveena). Jarrod and Meaghan, the managers, are unbelievable hosts. The pictures don't do it justice. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Fantastic home, this is where you should stay in playa negra

  • 5 of 5

Costa Rica is a wonderful safe place to travel and we had been here many times, but this was our first journey to playa negra. A fun drive from Liberia to get to this amazing home. From the star deck, the personal pool, great exploring on the beach, fun yard to play in, and that is just the outside. The bedrooms were great, fully stocked kitchen, great living area and basement. It is an awesome value for what you get in the area. Locals were nice, great beach for family, horses, and all you would expect from costa rice. Jarrod is a great host and will help you with anything you need.

Casa Somos Uno

  • 4 of 5

Even more beautiful and comfortable than the photographs, 6 of us had an amazing time at Casa Somos Uno. Except for the flooding of the downstairs bedroom during two particularly heavy rains, we all enjoyed the patio and pool area, the spacious kitchen, and the en suite bathrooms with each bedroom. The gated community is quiet and we enjoyed walking to Playa Negra every morning to swim while the tide was low. The snorkeling trip out of Tamarindo was phenomenal! We also enjoyed horseback riding with Molly, the local zip line, and spending an afternoon at Lola's under the palm umbrellas drinking ice cold Imperials and watching the surfers! The food was delicious and fresh and we spent several hours relaxing on the beach there. We also loved dining at Bar Latino, Cafe Playa Negra, and for our last dinner, Villa Deveena - so delicious and such a little jewel tucked away off the beaten path. The massage therapists were also amazing and all 6 of us would have enjoyed another visit from them, next time! Meaghan and Jarrod are awesome hosts! They were always available to answer questions. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives and in fact have already so I can begin booking my next trip to Play Negra! It was a lovely, lovely vacation, steeped in the natural beauty of Costa Rica and the surf pounding the rocky shoreline was the perfect musical background for the deep relaxation we all needed and enjoyed!

Owner's Response: Hi Jill, Thanks for the great review, we all know how special Casa Somos Uno and Playa Negra is for our guests, we're really happy that you and your friends had a great time. It was unfortunate that we had the issue with the leaks during the heavy rains. Just so you and all others know, we have found and repaired the source of the leak, which was a roof drain that was clogged up after the long dry season. We are looking forward to your return visit, thanks again for the nice review! Jarrod
