We absolutely loved it here. The grounds are beautiful, the house is charming and was perfect for the 2 of us with everything we needed and Kai was a great and attentive host. We absolutely loved the area, Playa Grande is a great little area and we loved and how close it was to the beach. We loved how secluded we felt on the property, but how close it still was to everything. We would definitely come here again.
We LOVED this little cabin. For us this property was perfect. Just a five minute walk to the beach, which was almost a private beach, due to the small amount of people there. The village where the cabin is located is very peaceful and quiet and the trees around the house even increase this atmosphere. In the Morning you get to wake up to the rising sun and a few howling monkeys who live around, which is a pretty cool way to wake up.
The owner was very nice and helpful, thank you again !!!
The house was very clean and we didn’t have bugs, ants or mosquitos.
A small shop, restaurants and surf shops can be reached by foot but we would recommend a car so you can explore more of Costa Rica.
Thanks again for everything we would definitely book this tiny, beautiful cabin again.
We had the pleasure of staying in both the Casita Linda Vista and Casa Azul during out 9 nights in Playa Grande. Located atop a hill, the grounds are beautifully maintained and offer the perfect, private retreat. The accommodations are also very well thought out, comfortable, clean and private.
Wildlife abounds here and we awoke most mornings to the sounds of exotic birds and howler monkeys playing in the trees. We also saw armadillos, iguanas and a pizote on the property. It's less than a 10 minute walk to Playa Ventanas and Playa Grande, and although several restaurants are close (Kike's, El Huarto, El Pointe, Cafe Del Pueblo), we recommend renting a car for picking up groceries and visiting other restaurants.
It was in the 90s during our stay, and without AC the accommodations can be rather hot during the day, but the fans and evening breezes keep it cool enough for sleeping at night. The Casita offers enough space for a couple, especially since most of our time was spent outside (imagine a studio apartment, or a standard hotel room with a kitchenette) and we absolutely loved the morning light and privacy. Casa Azul is more spacious, with a separate bedroom, sitting room and kitchen, so it's better for a family of 4, and would be our preference if we were staying more than a week. It also has more "yard", but it's a little less private since it sits closer to the big house.
Kai is a wonderful host - non-intrusive, but available to provide information if desired. He was very accomodating when our travel plans changed. Our return flight was cancelled due to inclement weather back home, and we needed to stay an additional 2 days (terrible, right?). Although the Casita was reserved, Kai offered us Casa Azul without any hesitation.
While in Playa Grande, we scouted out several other rentals that we had considered, as well as some of the hotels, and we could not have been happier with our choice. We hope to return to Costa Rica again year after year, and Casa Linda Vista is the only place we will stay. If you're looking for a private retreat away from tourists, but close to restaurants, beaches and wildlife - this is a great spot!
True Costa Rica beach living
Nice villa on a beautiful property. The host was very helpful and friendly. You can walk on back roads or paths to the beach, surf shops and restaurants. During the off season, Playa Grande is a sleepy surf town with a beautiful, remote beach. There are some bugs and no air conditioning, but that's Costa Rica life for you!
