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!

Great House in Playa Grande!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families with teenagers traveling for Spring Break. We had a great experience from the time with booked the house until the time we left. The owners were very responsive and helpful. The house and pool were clean, comfortable and very convenient. The caretakers are wonderful. We paid Frescia to cook our breakfast everyday. We bought snacks and drinks but easily ate lunch and dinner out. Jeanette at Frijoles Locos booked everything from our rental car to our excursions and they delivered and picked up our surfboards. One day we took the boat over the estuary to Tamarindo from Hotel Bula Bula. I highly recommend the hour and half drive to Hacienda Guachipelin to do the river tubing! It was an incredible experience. Our surfers loved the beach and the rest of us loved the other activities that were easily accessible. It is a great house.

A piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were planning a family trip to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our son-in-law eyed this property on this site. From the first phone call to the last day everything we hope for went as scheduled and planned. The owner, caretakers, event planners were most helpful and reliable. We were a party of ten ranging from 73- 5 mos. The home was spacious, clean, and quite appealing. We loved the patio and pool which we enjoyed the outside breeze.. Walking to the beach and restaurants were a plus. It will be a wonderful memory embedded in our hearts forever. That's life----a composite of memories!!!! Thanks for a good one❤

Wonderful house, staff and location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home. Spacious with plenty of room for large groups to spend together and large rooms for ours teenagers to hide away in. Great kitchen. Staff is friendly and personable. Having the option for meals to be cooked was a blessing. Not having to eat out for every meal was great. Not having the burden of planning every meal (and grocery shopping) was a blessing. Plus the meals were excellent!

The pool isn't huge, but was big enough to cool off and lounge in. The beach is a 2 minute walk away. And what a great beach. Perfect for all to enjoy. The location of the house is ideal. A short water taxi (or hike if the tide is low) to Tamarindo where there are plenty of restaurants and shops. To the north are a trove of other wonderful beaches to explore as well as adventures such as ATV, zip line and snorkeling/scuba. It was so nice to be so close to everything we wanted to do, yet have our quiet retreat to return to each day.

The only thing to be aware of is the last 2km of the road. Can be pretty bumpy and muddy. We were glad to have the raised 4WD. Not that we needed the 4WD but it was reassuring that we had it.

This was our first trip to Costa Rica. Everyone had a great time and looks forward to returning. Would definitely consider another stay at Case de Estrella!

Overall very satisfied

  • 5 of 5

The property was as shown in pictures with a big, beautiful kitchen. Luckily the air conditioner was strong because it was so hot outside. The only somewhat disappointment was the pool, which looks bigger in the photos than it actually is. Still, it was a great place to stay. Highly recommended for travelers to Costa Rica.

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!!!
