Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was fantastic! Coryanne and Ian at frijoles Locos were extremely helpful and accomadating. We had almost daily contact with them or representatives at their shop, from day excursion bookings to massages at the house, everything was amazing. The couple staying at the house (caretakers) were so friendly and hospitable (If you could provide a address so I can ship something to them, that would be great). We made sure to leave them a big tip as well as some fishing gear. The beds were extremely comfortable and the proximity to the local store and beach was perfect. A great experience for the whole family! There were no down falls about the house! I hope we can come back some day. Thank you!

We'll be back...

  • 5 of 5

9 of us went ranging in age from 3-68 for a week of total paradise. The Villa had it all...charm for sure but everything one might need to make it totally comfortable. Walking to the nearly private beach was convenient and if you surf, you are in for a real treat! There are restaurants within walking distance that were good and the surf shop (which was a short drive) made reservations for several activities for us. The people were so warm and accommodating. The caretakers were helpful and their children are precious. I'd go back in a heartbeat and hope to one day!!!

Best vacation home ever

  • 5 of 5

9 of us went to Playa Grande for 9 days. 5 of them being teenagers. Everyone loved everything about this house. We can not wait to go back. We try to go on a different vacation every year, but this one will certainly be a repeat. The owner is east to work with and the caretakers are great. The waves were only a 3 minute walk for all of our surfers and boogey boarders. Next door is a great restaurant Seven and a small convenience store that has everything you could possibly need.

Such a LOVELY home and Great Staff!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home and location! This was the perfect arrangement for my family. We loved the large family room and the home was so comfortable and beautifully appointed throughout. I have only seen a couple of beaches in Costa Rica, but I have to say that Playa Grande is my favorite. The long shelf makes for great swimming, yet there were people nearby enjoying surfing lessons. My favorite were the early morning walks - so relaxing.

I would highly recommend Estrella Del Mar!

The best way to see Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5

We began our trip to Costa Rica at an all-inclusive resort in Guanacaste. While nice, we felt like we could have been anywhere (even the U.S.) and we really wanted to experience Costa Rica. I was so glad we chose to stay at Estrella Del Mar for the second half of our trip. We really got the feeling that we were in another country complete with a rain forest with the perfect beach. What a beautiful and very comfortable home. We loved interacting with Fresia and her family and she prepared the best Costa Rican breakfast our second morning there - gorgeous local fruit, eggs, the most delicious coffee and gallo pinto. We sat on the patio and listened to the monkeys. What a perfect Costa Rican experience!!

Heavenly Villa - Fabulous Waves -

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We just got back from two weeks in Costa Rica and spent one of them at this spectacular villa. You'll be stunned as you pull up to the gates. The villa is a Mediterranean masterpiece with beautiful stone and wood accents throughout and a lovely garden and pool.

The house and caretakers are wonderful. They're kind and attentive and will cook for you or give you privacy. We took our three kids: ages 16, 14 and 11 and let them spread out in the very large space. What a perfect getaway in a peaceful jungle for a family. The villa would also be great for a girls trip, a multi-generational family getaway or two families.

The walk to the beach is short and fun. We loved the surfing and boogey-boarding. Perfect sand. Perfect waves. Lovely for walking and very few people. It was like being on a gorgeous white sand beach in California except that we had it nearly all to ourselves. The water was totally safe for kids. I expected more rain since we went during the rainy season, but we had gorgeous days and breathtaking sunsets, then a couple of fun thunderstorms in the evenings. The back deck is covered and the outdoor kitchen/grill is lovely. We had a great time dining outside.

I recommend getting a car to get there. Don't bother paying more for 4-wheel drive. You won't need it. The roads are fine. Once there, you can can settle in and cook for yourselves or walk to restaurants. We loved the Bula Bula! Go for happy hour. If you like to cook, you can shop by water taxi! This was a blast. We walked toward Tamarindo on the beach (about a 15-minute walk) and flagged down a boat. It's $1 each to cross. Once in Tamarindo, you go up the steps, head left or uphill and walk to the Auto Mercado. This is the Whole Foods of Costa Rica and they had a great selection of food, produce and wine. We brought backpacks to the store and loaded our groceries up, then walked back to the boats. On the way back to Playa Grande, it's better to catch the water taxi for $3 each to the Bula Bula instead of walkign back on the beach. You'll have a shorter walk from there to the villa (just three to five minutes).

We felt so lucky to have stayed at this lovely villa in Playa Grande. If you're looking for a peaceful spot, this is it. If you want action, you can always head over to Tamarindo for lunch, dinner or a night out, then return to your slice of paradise.
