Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation and loved the house! It was perfect for our family. The remodel was nicely done and Kristi and Doug the property managers were awesome. We will be back next April for sure.

Beautiful, quiet beach with the comforts of home and the luxury of housekeeping and concierge 😊

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, private home on a beautiful stretch of quiet beach. Our family of five spent 10 amazing days here recently and would definitely return. The home itself was clean and spacious with big, beautiful bathrooms, comfy beds, laundry facilities and even a separate entrance for one of the bedrooms with an additional bathroom which was perfect for our eldest daughter! The small pool was maintained daily and was a favourite spot for us when the beach got too hot! The iguanas and howler monkeys shared the landscaped yard and we were even able to see some baby leatherback turtles make their way to ocean in the early morning! Kristi and Doug provided great service as the property managers by checking in on us, answering questions, booking surf lessons and tours and even dropping off rental bikes...anything we needed! We also enjoyed the luxury of daily housekeeping provided by the sweetest and most efficient young woman! I even left a bag of laundry beside the washer to throw in later in the day and when we returned from our outing, I found it all washed, folded and sitting on the bed!...what an unexpected treat! Loved her! We enjoyed surf lessons right out front of the house, an estuary boat tour which was less than a 10 minute walk, an all day tour which included zip lining and tubing with door to door service and four restaurants with great food and service all within a few minutes walk! A 20 minute beach walk in one direction took you to a water taxi which brought you across to Tamarindo where there was lots of activity and a short walk in the opposite direction let you enjoy watching surfers while eating tacos and drinking cold beer! Very laid back and a great first experience in Costa Rica!

Amazing beach steps from your door.

  • 4 of 5

We were at this house the beginning of March. Two of our children , our daughter age 8 and son age 11, my husband and I. We all loved the Playa Grande beach. The waves were amazing, we even took surf lessons. It was so much fun. The beach is beautiful and lot's of room to rome. It's about a five k hike to the rock and back where you can see all kinds of ctabs and other small ocean life in the morning.

As for the house itself

We were escorted by Walley from Bula Bula restaurant . Which by the way has amazing food and very generous portions.

Upon arriving at the house we were warned to keep everything locked up tight and lock your doors. Apatently there is alot of petty theft. When you leave it's hard to lock up because every door has a separate key as well as locking the gate to the driveway. Not sure the point because there is a vacant yard next door which people walk through randomly. I wasn't to comfortable with that. The inside lock for Windows and patip doors was a stick. Not to secure however you have metal gates that lock over the doors and windows.

The house was small and older.

The phone didn't work and the fridge didn't close well. The air conditioning in the one bedroom didn't work however on making Walley aware of the situation it was repaired the next day.

The pool was just the right size to just cool down in and hang out in the hot afternoon. Nice pool side lounge chairs and lovely garden.

The cleaning ladies and ground keepers came by daily and did a good job. However you can't communicate with the them in English at all.

There is a back patio which you can see the ocean from through a small beautiful path. The patio furniture is very old and plastic. There is a very basic charcoal bbq. Handy outdoor shower for getting all the sand off.

The house has a third bedroom however separate entrance from the house so we couldn't utilize it with our young children.

It's a great little house for family fun just steps from a awesome beach.

We really enjoyed our time there. Thanks.😁�

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa 80. We are a family of 4 with two young kids (ages 3 and 11 months). The house was clean and tidy and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The kitchen is up-to-date with modern appliances and the living space is open concept. There was AC in all of the rooms and wireless internet throughout. The house was cleaned daily (which at first we didn't think we would need - but turns out it was really helpful!) and the grounds and pool were cleaned regularly as well. David was a very responsive host overall. The house itself has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in the main house and a separate in-law suite with bathroom. We didn't use the in-law suite as it is not connected directly to the main house and our kids are too little to be separated from us overnight (i.e. you have to outside the front door to get to it) but it would be perfect if you are traveling with parents, another couple, or even an older teenager/young adult.

The location of the house is stellar - right on the beach! You can hear the ocean from virtually everywhere in the house - and the surf is just steps away. It felt like we had our own private beach! It was so great to put on our suits and head to the beach first thing in the morning and then head back to the yard to cool down when things got too hot. Afternoons were spent in the pool once it got nice and shady. And evenings were spent on the beach again to watch the sun go down.

There is so much wildlife to be seen in the yard - iguanas, monkeys, geckos, magpies - our 3 year old loved it.

There were also several restaurants to venture out to when we needed a change of scenery and a little store to buy supplies all within a short walk.

I'm sure we will look back with fond memories on our time at Casa 80!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at Casa 80!! The best part is the location. The house is beachfront with a private pool, nicely secluded and safe. It was so great having young kids to just hit the beach for a little bit, cool off in the pool, and then have lunch and snacks at home in the AC and do it all over again in the afternoon, never having to pack beach bags and coolers. Didn't miss a sunset either, perfect time for the family to be on the beach! After sunset we would walk or drive to dinner, lots of good options in the area. We had some friends come and go while we stayed and they all loved it too, thank you for a great vacation with friends and family!
