About Chris Kellar
Born and raised in Columbia Missouri, my husband Dan and I still reside in our hometown where we met at 18 years old. We have two children, also raised in Columbia that are now grown and independent. We have owned vacation properties in not only Costa Rica but Florida and Crested Butte Colorado.
Chris Kellar purchased this House in 2013
Why Chris Kellar chose Playa Langosta
In 2003- Hearing how wonderful Costa Rica was, Dan and I took a trip down to Central America to see what the talk was all about. We fell in love with the beautiful land and the laid back vibe and gracious locals. We chose our first home on Playa Langosta to be a beachfront 2 bedroom condo. After nearly a decade of owning we realized our love grew even more for the country and Playa Langosta so we purchased Las Tortugas in 2013. Instantly when walking through the house We knew it was the one....Love at first site. I never understood the importance of feng-Shui until I entered Casa de las Tortugas. (feng means "wind" and shui means "water." In Chinese culture, wind and water are associated with good health, thus good feng shui came to mean good fortune)
What makes this House unique
Casa de las Tortugas has a simple elegance that you instantly see when you drive through the front gates. The house has a large living area that opens up on to a large Lanai that allows you to hear the soothing rhythmic sounds of the ocean. The living area was designed to be open air if desired. Between the Ocean sounds and the gentle breezes, Tortugas will calm your worries away. We loved the fact that the house had two story wings on each side of the house that jetted off towards the ocean. Each wing had bedrooms overlooking the ocean which makes you feel as if it's your private villa off of the main house. Touring up and down the coast we understand how hard it is to find 6 suites where 5 of them are Full Oceanfront Masters. Playa (beach) Langosta is literally our backyard and most all of the time it's as if no one knows about it but you.
No smoking allowed in house

Fantastic house with all the amenities!
Our stay at Casa De Las Tortugas was great. There were 10 of us who had never been to Costa Rica before and after our week here we will all be returning. Household and property management staff all did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome. They did the initial shopping trip for us, which we were thankful for. The chef that you referred Sol, from Bassilo Catering made us the 2 best meals we had while in Tamarindo, better than any of the restaurants! Oceanfront bedrooms were beautiful and comfortable. Short walk down the shoreline led us to some beautiful sandy beaches, and it was an easy walk to downtown, either along the beach or on the road. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a worry free, relaxing vacation!
Pat- Thank you for the kind review and taking the time to share your experience.
I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at Casa de Las Tortugas and the beautiful country of Costa Rica.
We hope to have you back in the near future.
We rented this property with a group of friends for our wedding. Location was perfect- quiet neighborhood right on the beach and minutes from town. House and grounds were stunning. House staff were helpful and friendly. Owner was not especially friendly to deal with. Perfect place to hold an event and stay with a group.
thank you for the positive review. We take great pride in the fact that our home is a unique floor plan that no one can offer. I'm sorry that we do not have a blue print to share of the floor plan. However, I will take the time by phone or email as I did with you to go through each room to describe the unique features and where the location of each room is so you can choose your room accommodations well before arrival.
We are delighted to be able to open our home to wedding parties and I believe that we offer a setting that no one else can compare to, I'm glad you agree. I'm sorry if you thought our venue fee covers the wedding and any other event for your guests during the week. I will do better at informing guests that the venue fee only covers the reception and any other events at the house will be extra.
We wish you a wonderful life together and hope to have you back to celebrate it.
Outstanding home in Playa Langosta
The house was beautiful and perfect for our group! It was very spacious and we did not feel cramped at all. Each bedroom had its own bathroom which was a plus. The house has a huge kitchen, big dining room where we had a chef come to cook a couple of times and a great lanai area to sit outside in the shade. Location was perfect and was walking distance to the town of Tamarindo or accessible by golf cart. Everyone was very accommodating and helpful. I would definitely rent this house again. Thanks Chris for sharing your lovely home!
We stayed in this house from June 2 through the 11th. The house was amazing. We had plenty of room and felt right at home. The beds were super comfortable and we had everything we needed.
Susan the concierge was very helpful with booking our adventures. Ronnie our driver was wonderful.
We rented a golf cart and it was a short drive to town to shop or enjoy local restaurants.
The house staff was very helpful, and with the security at night we felt very safe.
Sol, the owner of Basilico Catering and Featured chef Leo Manzur were beyond wonderful. They cooked for us five of the nights we were there. The food was amazing. Fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection. The kids ( 18 yrs to 24) loved helping them cook in the kitchen, Sol and Leo were so great with them. By the end of the week they were so much more than our chefs, they were family. Passion Fruit cheesecake, need I say more!!!!
We will be back!!!
Thank you Chris for sharing your amazing home!
