I cannot imagine a better beach house experience. All of our expectations were met and exceeded. This Beachhouse is as close as you can get to the water. This place is peace and quiet away from the noisy Costa Rican streets and cities. All you hear are the crashing waves from the ocean and the tropical birds in the trees. This Beachhouse is the best designed house on this uncrowned beach. It’s the ultimate relaxing beach experience hanging out on the spacious shaded upper balcony where there is a commanding view of the whole beach scene and fantastic sunsets. There’s a perfect mix of sunshine and shade from all the tropical vegetation on the property. My kids loved the pool located in the back of the house. The owners Alan and Kathy live in a small house at the back of the property and they are very nice people. We never felt like they were supervising our activities. They were helpful with any questions we had about the property or things to do. They recommended a lady who gave us an excellent massage. Their recommendation for private surfing lessons from Santiago and Maria were also an excellent experience for the whole family. They made it super easy because the massage lady came to the house and the surfing instructors also came to the house and gave us lessons in the ocean right out in front of the house. So easy and convenient. There is a good local restaurant and mini grocery store about a 10 to 15 minute walk away so we never needed to use our car. One day we took a cruise on a large catamaran, also from the list of recommended activities we found in the house. This was also an excellent experience and the cruise company picked us up and then dropped us off right at the beach house. We will definitely be back but only if we can rent this same house again. Thanks Alan & Kathy

My wife and i stayed for (only!!!) one week at Villa de la Roca on Playa Grande with two other couples. I don’t normally write reviews especially if i think a place is great – since i prefer to keep great places to myself. However, here are a few thoughts from our stay – and all people in our party echo the same sentiments :

1. The pictures and video on the VRBO site do NOT do this Villa justice. It is a simply wonderful and relaxing place. And it is right on the beach. One major decision required every night is – do we watch the sunset from the second floor patio or, do we take the 20 steps onto the beach .

2. The location is fantastic from a variety of perspectives. A. the closest real town is Tamarindo which is 3 miles walk down the beach – a very approachable walk which we did. However, that also means that the area on the beach around the house is quiet and the beach area is very peaceful – some people, especially surfers, but not lots of people. B. Food and drink is no more than 5 minutes away – either at the Taco shack along the beach (which has not only great tacos but great smoothies, banana bread and brownies) – or at the few places near and in the Rip Jack In which is about 100 metres further away than the Taco Shack..

Our family stayed in the house for over a week and spent the vast majority of our time on the amazing second floor deck which gave us an incredible view of the beach and ocean. Alan and Kathy were very hospitable and helpful in their recommendations for places to eat in the area. They had made arrangements with some friends of theirs to come and give our kids surfing lessons and give us information about different tour options in the area. We had a fabulous time playing in the waves and on the beach which was just a step out of our house, and spent a lot time just relaxing and enjoying the ocean breeze. Be sure to ask about the bakery truck that comes twice a week, as well as the fish truck that brought us fresh jumbo shrimp with many other options! There is also a really terrific taco stand just down the beach about a 5 minute walk from the house. We were able to just walk down the road behind our house and see howler monkeys, and had a wonderful excursion out to the Black Sand Beach. We enjoyed some delicious food at Kikes as well as the two Italian restaurants which are just minutes away. Also there are a few grocery stores very near by to pick up anything you need. There is a shower in the back of the house beside the pool to rinse off the sand before jumping into the refreshing pool. It’s not a five star establishment, but the quiet beach and friendly atmosphere were fantastic. There is no inside stairs joining the 2 rooms downstairs with the main level; we split our family to use all the rooms in the house, which meant our children were downstairs with no way of reaching us during the night as we locked the gate and the doors (which was the safe and logical thing to do), but we knew this going into our vacation and made it work. Thank you so much Alan and Kathy for your friendly hospitality. We hope to visit your wonderful beach again!
