Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We booked the home for a family vacation all adults. 6 in total. We found the set up was perfect as the rooms being separated gave us all our own space. We found we all gravitated to the beautiful infinity pool as well as the patio all the time. The view of the beach and the ocean was fantastic. The surf was great, beach is secluded and not crowded. The proximity to Coco Loco (local eatery) was advantagous as their menu was great. The staff Oli and the daily visits of Maritza helping out to keep the property clean and attend to our needs was welcome. Oli and Maritza are true professionals. We highly recommend this property. It can be perceived a little rustic but this is the charm of this home. We Would book again again.

Best location on Flamingo beach

  • 4 of 5

This is an amazing property because of its view, location and proximity to the beach. We were there during Holy Week and there were activities set up on the beach with a grand stand and a band and other fun things - but it shut down early - like 9:30pm - so it never disturbed us too late. The beach is a pristine white sandy beach - with no seaweed when we were there. There were huge waves that were a blast but that would have made me nervous if my kids were younger. There were many restaurants within walking distance but if Oli is available - he would drive you if you want to go further. He was the best when it came to problem solving or a quick trip to the grocery. He set up a fishing/snorkeling private boat which was terrific too.

The sunsets and lanai were absolutely breathtaking. Also, the moon over the water late at night is incredible - we were there for a full moon and it was truly spectacular.

The only draw back of this fabulous property is that the third bedroom is sort of like a coach house and set back from the other two bedrooms - which each have their areas as well. If you are thinking about having young children share the double beds room - am not sure it is the best fit. They would be set back from you and with the beautiful ocean noises, you probably wouldn't hear if they needed something. My youngest is 14 and she was fine there with a friend but I just was thinking if they were younger, I would have had an issue.

Another plus, Oli set up a chef to cook some dinners and lunches for us and it was a great way to relax at this beautiful spot. He also had some ladies come and give us fabulous massages on the lanai! It was one of the many highlights of our Costa Rican trip! Also, Mareetza (sorry if I spelled it incorrectly) was a dream since we came from the rain forest and she did all our laundry and kept the place nice and neat. She is a gem. I hope you get a chance to check out this special spot!

Owner's Response: We are so very glad you enjoyed Casa Piedra and your stay in Costa Rica. I will pass your kind words onto Oli and Meritsa. Youn may rest assured that the casita is never rented with the ides of small children being there alone. For that reason we have the queen bed and 2 twins.m We hope to see you, again at Casa Piedra.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 adults stayed for a week. The location was beautiful and accommodations were very good. Even though there is a road between the house and beach, it is a quiet location and there is a mile of beach to explore. Good restaurants nearby including Coco Loco next door (excellent). Staff at the house were great; Olivier and Marista were very attentive and helpful. My only complaint was the lack of communication from the owners prior to our stay. On several occasions there was no responses to my phone messages/e-mails. The owner responded to the VRBO site communications only.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Regarding communications, I understand your point. However with the amount of inquiries I receive, I find it far more efficient to respond vs homeaway or VRBO. That way there is an accurate communication record to follow and refer to at all times. I have made mistakes in the past by agreeing to things or promising things in outside communication then lost track of which prospective renter I had spoken with. We ho to see you in Costa Rica again!!

The six of us ladies just got back from a week at the most beautiful beach. Our villa had a view that can never be outdone. We spent hours just sitting in the pool and on the large deck staring out at the Pacific Ocean. The location of the villa is second to none on that entire beach. And of course, thanks to house manager (Oli), we were able to do many truly memorable activities. Oli was able to set us up with great events and people, maximizing the entire Costa Rican experience. We all could not have been happier with the location, the view and the staff!!! Great time had by all.

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the past week in paradise. The accommodations were great and fit all of us (4 adults and 4 kids) perfectly. We loved the openness and the large outdoor space overlooking the ocean. It was the perfect place to watch the sunset every night. The kids got a lot of use of the pool and loved taking the boogie boards down to the ocean. The staff was very friendly. Olivier checked in with us every morning to see if we needed anything and Marissa ensured the place and our clothes stayed clean. The entire property is gated and has a security guard on site at night, so we always felt safe. Whenever we didn't want to cook for ourselves, we would venture out to one of the local establishments. A few that we visited and enjoyed were Coco Loco (right next door), Maries and the Monkey Bar both of which were about 600-700 meters away.

The only two minor hiccups in our stay were the 24 hours where the water was shutoff for the entire town and our last night when the air conditioner stopped working in the casita where the kids were sleeping.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone that is looking for a house on the beach in Costa Rica.
