About Maria Sabatto Property Manager

My wife and I visited Costa Rica in October 2014. We fell in love with the country and the local "Tica" population. We decided that we wanted to buy a house in Costa Rica but it had to be right on the beach. We have a home in Ft. Lauderdale and a Yacht but the house is on the Intercostal Canal and we park our boat there. After 6-7 years of doing the Caribbean cruses, we decided to sell the boat but to keep the house in Florida. My wife is a real water person and she wanted a house on the beach so we could hear the waves and get the whole ocean experience. We live full time in Houston Texas and I recently retired as the CEO of publically traded company. Since we live in Houston, its not hard to guess that I was in the Oil and Gas industry. Anyway, we wanted a place that was laid back, not too expensive and secure that we could spend 6 months a year at if we wanted. Besides the house in Florida, we have a ranch in South Texas. We wanted a completely different experience and change of pace. So, we found Casa Roca.

Maria Sabatto Property Manager purchased this house in 2014

Why Maria Sabatto Property Manager chose Guanacaste

We looked all over Costa Rica for a property that fit our ideal property. I think we looked at almost every beach front property that was for sale. When we saw Casa Roca, we knew we had found our home. Casa Roca was unique and entirely different from the other homes we looked at. Many of the others were very nice, but nothing special and some, although a bit newer, were cookie cutters of what you would find in Florida or any typical Mediterranean style home. The marble floors, tiled ceilings, antique doors and woodwork, plus the rock walls of Casa Roca are truly unique and immediately caught our attention. The beach is about 20 yards out the back gate. Although you do have 6-7 neighbors on the same street, the way the house is designed, once you are inside the gates, you feel like you are completely isolated from the outside. Although Tamarindo/Playa Langosta are a safe community, we also like the security of the iron gates and security guards. Of all the beach properties we looked at, Casa Roca is the only one that fit all of our criteria. A big plus and part of the decision to buy was the town of Tamarindo. Many of the beach communities we looked at, were a little too Bohemian for our taste. Or, they had little or no amenities to offer. Tamarindo, is a bit more upscale than most but, still has a very casual, laid back atmosphere. Most of Tamarindo is relatively new. It has a great grocery store, great restaurants with everything from Pizza to Gourmet restaurants, casual beach bars and everything in between. There is also a varied selection of shopping, you will find most anything from local souvenirs to surfboards or very nice jewelry. All considered, we felt this was the best area for families and relaxation in Costa Rica. Everyone we have met, both Tica's (that's what the local Costa Ricans are called) and the Expats, have been extremely friendly and helpful.

What makes this house unique

One the beach, high end luxury property, one of a kind property, great local amenities, close to Liberia International Airport, relatively inexpensive,

The perfect home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Roca was the perfect home for our vacation - party of 7 (2 adults 5 children). The house is more like your own private hotel. Entering through the front gates, there's plenty of parking for multiple cars. The outdoor pool/hot tub/cabana area is the center point of the home with each room surrounding it. Each room is like its own private hotel suite - none are connected to each other. Each has its own private bathroom - one with an outdoor shower. All have their own air conditioner. The main portion of the house has the living room/kitchen with all amenities/fitness room/brand new washer and dryer, and another full bathroom. The house is impeccably clean and beds are very comfortable. Aiden was there every day to make sure everything was in perfect condition.

The house is right on Playa Langosta Beach which is beautiful - a little rocky at low tide but walk 5 min down the beach towards the river and it's perfect for boogie boarding/body surfing. Sunsets over the beach from the cabana were amazing!! There's even a fire pit!

We had them stock the refrigerator for when we arrived and it was perfect. I would recommend a rental car as there is a small grocery store about 3-4 min drive and the full grocery store about 7-8 minutes drive. We also had them cook for us the first night on arrival and the food was amazing. We ate at home a lot (the house was so beautiful we just wanted to enjoy it) so not many dinner recommendations.

We recommend using Kelly's surf shop to book all activities. Sebastian at Kelly's Surf Shop knows everyone on the island and whether we wanted to just go surfing/surfing lessons, zip lining, wave runners, deep sea fishing - he booked them all and they were all wonderful.

I would highly recommend Casa Roca to couples or families with children who are OK staying separate from their parents as none of the rooms connect.

We are already thinking about when we can make it back! Pura Vida!!

We just returned from our stay at Casa Roca and I can honestly say that it is the most beautiful place I've been to! The house itself was phenomenal, the view was awesome and the staff were so friendly and helpful. We had a great week with great friends and I would definitely recommend Casa Roca to anyone visiting Costa Rica and would love to come back again!

An Amazing House! Casa Roca Delivers!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a beautiful vacation at Casa Roca. Can't say enough about our stay. The home was beautifully appointed. It is obvious the love and pride that the owners have for their home. The ocean views never got old. There are no words to describe the sunsets. They were breathtaking. The house is so close to town so we were able to enjoy all the fabulous restaurants that Tamarindo had to offer. Patagonia is a must! Best steaks ever! The staff at the house was also very accommodating and friendly. They will cook for you too. We indulged on their home-made breakfasts every morning.

It should not come as a surprise that I would recommend this home to all! Enjoy!

My family spent the week of May 1st at Casa Roca and had an absolutely phenomenal time. There were several aspects to our trip that made it particularly great:

- Casa Roca: Gorgeous. Spectacular. Perfect outdoor living. The patio with the outdoor tables, seating, tv, kitchen was perfect. The hot tub next to the grill overlooking the ocean and the SUNSETS!!!! The pool had several "sections" which accommodated numerous swimmers and groups. The bedrooms were sizable and well situated.

- The staff: Aider and Lisette were genuinely nice, helpful and did a fabulous job maintaining the house. Their cooking is SUPERB. We want all the recipes. Or, do yourselves a favor and publish a cookbook. Then call me... I want 10. In all seriousness have them cook for you.

-The Concierge Team: Brian and Sebastian were extremely helpful in planning pre-arrival ANYTHING including shipping, groceries, random questions, excursions, etc.

-Tamarindo: the house is located away from the main town but it is easily accessible. Has many restaurants, groceries, types of beaches, etc.

THANKS AGAIN for a fabulous week!

Incredible home in paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Roca is an incredible home on beautiful Playa Langosta. We came with our group of 10 adults and 1 infant and loved everything about our stay in paradise! Each couple had a large, ample bedroom with comfortable King bed and private bath. The home has a large, outdoor, covered dining area with plenty of seating for 20+ people. In addition, the large tiki hut overlooks the ocean and can seat 12 around the table. There is a large infinity lap pool as well as an infinity hot tub overlooking the ocean. We watched the sunset every evening from the tiki hut and pool--incredible views!!

The house staff was very helpful and maintained this beautiful property. The kitchen is well stocked if you choose to order in or cook at home. We had the house staff cook breakfast each morning and we ate out or ordered in for lunch and dinner each day. Our breakfasts were delicious and we especially loved all the tropical, fresh fruit we ate each day. Our local concierge, Sebastian was readily available and helped us book dinner reservations, tours and even surf lessons.

We spent plenty of time lounging and relaxing at Casa Roca and at nearby Playa Langosta and Playa Tamarindo. We also took an excursion almost every day. We visited Catalinas, Playa Avellana (lunch at Lola's), zip lining, hiking at Rincon de la vieja, playa Grande, and dinner out at several restaurants in Tamarindo. We found it very helpful and necessary to have a rental car so we could explore.

Casa Roca has any amenity you might want--exercise gym, cable tv service, wifi, security guard etc. It is decorated beautifully with art pieces, plazas with tropical plants, antique doors, painted murals on walls and ceilings, and unique statues. This is a unique, beautiful property and would be an incredible getaway for any group!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to review our home. We very much appreciate the kind comments and we especially appreciate the fact that you recognized and complemented our house staff and Sebastian. They work very had to maintain the property and to insure that our guest are attended to in a manner that will ensure they enjoy their stay with us. We also very much appreciate comments that you made about the house, the decorations, the views, the details of the construction and the decorations. The Sunset view of the beach from the Cabana and Hot Tub are truly incredible and must bee seen to be really appreciated. One of our favorite things to do is to sit in the Hot Tub and watch the Sunset while having a glass of wine. We are so glad you enjoyed it also. WE feel very fortunate to be able to share our little piece of Paradise with guest as awesome as you and your group. Thank you for staying with us.
