“Best Vacation ever”
Thank you very much for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay! Greg and Gabriela and their daughter Daniella were wonderful. We very much appreciated their recommendations - everything from where to shop, where to bank, which beaches to visit, the best attractions, the best restaurants, etc., etc. Also very much appreciated the recommendations for the massages on the Lanai. We agree with the comments of many others who note that the pictures do not do the house or the beach justice. Miriam and Nicho were super sweet and very helpful. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we could not have asked for more. . Thanks again for a wonderful stay! We will come back!!! We love Casa del Mar !!!!
“A piece of paradise! Thanks for sharing it with us Greg and Gabriela!”
My family of four stayed for one week at Casa Del Mar mid January 2015. It was the perfect sunny get away for us. We have been to Costa Rica many times - my husband and I wed in Punta Islita in 2002. This was our fourth visit to Playa Grande; our first stay at Casa del Mar. We have booked at Las Tortugas or the apartments at Las Tortugas on prior visits. The property is immaculate. Nicho and Mirriam take great care and pride in the properties. We respected the security that was provided. We loved the fresh fish and pastries that came in the trucks. The weather and surfing were outstanding. It really was a wonderful vacation for our family. We have two girls aged 12 and 8 - we love to surf and birdwatch and walk the beach - everything in playa grande. (we also did a day trip to Tabacon - we love the hot springs from the volcano) I am hesitant to write this review as I don't like to share my secrets! I like to think that Casa del Mar is my home away from home (in Costa Rica). Thanks Greg and Gabriela for sharing your gorgeous property with me and my family! It was incredible. Ahnan

“Perfect Family Vacation”
This was our second trip to Playa Grande and Casa del Mar. It is an incredible, unspoiled Pacific beach paradise. If you are seeking sun, sea and serenity,Casa del Mar will make your dreams come true. Our family group of six adults and a baby were very comfortable and the staff was always ready to help make our stay perfect. Palaya Grande and the neighboring beach to the north, beyond the rock, are frequently deserted early in the day, like having a private millionaire's hideaway all to oneself except you do not have to be a millionaire! Descriptions are very accurate but for us the experience far exceeded the photos and listing.The owner is very helpful and responsive, answering endless questions via email and telephone and could not have been nicer. Most of the time we ate at home because we like to cook and some of us are good at it, too. But when we felt inclined for restaurant food, we enjoyed walking to the Rip Jack's for happy hour and a family friendly atmosphere. The estuary tour was all we needed for excursions and the Bula Bula is a great place to book the tour and have lunch. The weather in January is perfect, sunny and dry every day with the most beautiful sunsets on earth. Tidal pools for exploration and endless shells to collect. Body surfing was adventurous enough for us, with always a good wave coming and a long ride. No rocks on Playa Grande! Our stay coincided with the full moon, a time chosen because of the opportunity to better observe the enormous and endangered Leatherback turtle nesting in the moonlight on the turtle tour. The massage on the beach in front of the house under the almendra trees and the refreshments offered by the coco frio vendor were welcome interruptions to tranquil afternoons lounging outside on the covered patio. Our family loved Playa Grande and Casa del Mar!
“Staying at Casa Del Mar made our trip to Costa Rica perfect!”
Finding Casa Del Mar was a blessing. We have never traveled to Costa Rica before and wanted to find a special place to stay. We were not interested in an all-Inclusive Resort, and wanted to be right on the beach. Casa Del Mar was indeed that, right on the beach and provided all the amenities we were accustom to at home. The staff was very helpful and the location of the property in regards to area restaurants and shopping was ideal. We had privacy and at times we had the entire beach to ourselves. Greg and Gabriella were extremely helpful. They actually called several times to make sure we had all the information we needed and assisted us in making car reservations. They also were very helpful in providing information on the area tours available. I have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean, and I have never been able to speak live to the property owners and get any and all reservations addressed prior to visiting an unknown territory. It is obvious that Greg and Gabriela love to share their beautiful properties with tourist and go above and beyond to make certain your vacation was one you will never forget. We had a magnificent time and if you are planning on visiting Costa Rica and I would highly recommend Casa Del Mar!
“Beautiful Beach Home, peaceful, clean and amazing”
We arrived late on Saturday evening and were greeted by Miriam and Nicho who helped us with our arrival. We were given a tour of our home-for-a-week and all of the details were explained. We stayed for a week in early June, two teenagers, ages 16 and 18, and two adults. The next morning we awoke to a beautiful view of the ocean and we were able to enjoy our first cup of coffee while walking directly on the beach. It was fantastic. No crowds and plenty of beach to stroll and enjoy. Accommodations were just as described in the listing. Photos are accurate. We didn't use the upstairs bedroom, as both of our kids shared the downstairs bedroom. Air conditioners in bedrooms were great and appreciated in the evening for a good nights sleep. Bathrooms were generous in size and showers worked well. Everything was clean and in good repair. Miriam and her daughter cleaned the home every day and they were always available for questions. We rented boogie boards for the week and also enjoyed a grilled dinner one night on the porch with a very nice gas grill that was provided. Playa Grande was a great location for our trip. We had a rental car, and we travelled around each day to see new sights. We went to Tamarindo one day, went to Flamingo one day, and we travelled down to Playa avellanas to eat at Lola's on the beach. We also ate at Taco Star, right on the Playa Grande Beach, El Huerto's, and "Upstairs at RipJacks". All of our meals were great and the people of Costa Rica are very friendly and helpful. We will be returning sometime in the future, and hope to take more of our family members! Thanks Greg and Gabriela for having a beautiful home and sharing it with others!
We have stayed at Greg and Gabriella's accomodations before and love every bit of our experience there. Casa Del Mar is beautiful with modern ammenities right on the most beautiful beach we have seen. Nicho and Miriam are very helpful and friendly. We highly recommend Casa Del Mar to anyone who wants to have an amazing, relaxing vacation.
“Excellent Family Vacation!”
We had an incredible two-week stay at Casa Del Mar. It was very well laid out for two families with kids. The kids loved the huge loft and had their own full bath upstairs. Each of the downstairs bedrooms had a full bath and there was a half bath next to the kitchen. The beach was amazing. There are only 9 houses built on Playa Grande so you feel like you have the place to yourself a lot of the time. We went on early morning strolls down the beach and didn't see anyone! The waves were great for boogie boarding and surfing. Greg and Gabriela, the owners, and their daughter were so helpful in setting up activities for us--zip lining, white water rafting, horseback riding, ... Miriam and Nicho, who live on the property, were so sweet and helpful. They came in each morning and scooped up all of the dirty clothes and delivered them clean each afternoon. They helped us get the best fresh fish. Nicho hung our hammocks each day. It was an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We will be back!
“Just Book it.”
My family and I (we have four children between the ages of 8-13) just returned from Casa del Mar. Save yourself some time and book this place. It is very secure (my kids roamed the beach), walking distance to a great surf shop and restaurant, great waves out front (my son and I surfed every day), and is within an hour to some fantastic zip-lines. My only regret is that we had to leave. We'll stay here again for sure! The Sebastian Family
“Right on the beach”
You have seen these ads: "Beach view" "On the shore". Well this place means it. The front door is about twenty feet from the sand, and that twenty feet is your porch and yard. Casa del Mar is a safe and secure home away from home. All of the amenities are included, and Greg and Gabriela and their staff are wonderful hosts. You drive on paved roads from the airport to your garage, something often not found in Costa Rica. I would definitely recommend it.
We were at Casa del Mar the last week of Jan though the first week of February. The beachfront location is superb, and the beach felt like our private beach for a part of each day. We had perfect weather and absolutely loved staying at Casa Del Mar. Everything was taken care of, down to the dishes and laundry were done every day!! Our chaise lounges were set up by 6:30am, and our security guard was very nice and we alwys felt very safe. The home was quite comfortable, and we will come back again.
