The Space

Private home in gated community "Caramar" on the Pacific ocean. Spacious 2-story house with 3rd story look-out tower, 3 bedrooms each with a full bathroom. Large view windows, tiled throughout, tiled wrap-around patio and pool area, also with ocean view. Peaceful, last house along the beach in Playa Negra. Fishing, surfing and sunsets in your own backyard.
-Details: 2 bedrooms upstairs, one with king bed and A/C, one with queen bed no A/C, and one downstairs with 2 single beds and A/C. Each bedroom has it's own full bath (toilet/sink/shower). There is an additional shower outside by the pool area, and 2 additional single beds for guests, one upstairs, one downstairs The house is well ventilated and the winds are cool by the beach so we never use the A/C. It feels safe with the gate and guard house at the entry of the community. A popular surfing area, hotel and restaurant is a short walk or bike ride north. There are a few grocery stores and eating places in the town of los Pargos, a 15 minute walk.
-Charms: We spend most of our time lying in hammocks reading books or bicycle riding, we apologize for not having taken more photos. It's beautiful and peaceful here, there are monkey families in the trees, iguanas and hermit crabs scurry across the yard, It's the last house along the beach so few people or cars ever pass by. The house was built 50 meters from the water which is the closest possible according to Costa Rican law. *If you want crowds, traffic & fast-food - Tamarindo is 1/2 hour north. If you want a place sanitized with bleach, disinfectants & perfumes - stay at a hotel.

  • Our group of 5 really enjoyed Casa Verde. It was a 5 minute walk to the Playa Negra Hotel and surf break. The place is beautiful and has a great open layout and everything you need to stay for the week or more! The pool was really small but perfect to rinse or cool off quickly. The place had an outdoor shower, great patio around pool, wraparound porch with hammocks, and a third floor cupola with a great view and an even better breeze. We felt safe as the last oceanfront house at the end of the road and the beach. It was a quick drive into Playa Negra which has everything you really need - including places to grab a bite/drink - but you'll have to head to Tamarindo or Santa Cruz for major shopping. The house manager was great and took care of hooking us up with everything we were looking for and didn't know how to find - even surf spots, of which there are plenty nearby (no less than 5 within 15 minute drive). Despite being a fan of trying new places every trip, I'll be very likely to return to Casa Verde. Pura Vida!

  • Four friends and I stayed at Casa Verde for a week and had a very enjoyable experience.

    The house is as nice as it looks in the pictures, and is located on a beautiful piece of property set back a few hundred feet from the beach. The house and pool were clean, and the sea breeze made the temperature in the house very comfortable with the windows open.

    The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking equipment, and has an electric range with four burners but no oven.

    The beach is a mix of sand and areas of rock. There is a nice break in front of the Playa Negra Hotel just a short walk down the beach. It is a nice surf spot and the hotel is a great place to enjoy a fire on the beach, play volleyball and meet some cool people.

    The manager of the property was incredibly helpful in providing recommendations about where to eat, where to buy groceries, what excursions are fun, and what to do in the area around the house. However, ensure that you purchase a wireless plan for the week or set up a time that you want him to let you into the house, as our hones didn't work and we had to use the neighbors phone to reach him. The house is about one to one and a half hours from the Liberia airport and around four hours from the San Jose airport by car.

    There are some nice restaurants a short walk or drive from the house, small grocery stores, and places to rent surf gear.

    My group is in agreement that we would love to return.

  • Belle maison grande et confortable sur une belle plage tranquille. un peu éloignée des principales villes de services mais beaucoup plus typique et loin des groupes de touristes.

    Région recommandée pour les surfeurs et les amateurs de belles plages, de tortues, d'iguanes, de singes et de Cow-Boys! Il est nécessaire d'avoir une voiture et il faut prévoir au moins 2h30 de route pour visiter les différentes attractions comme les parcs nationaux les plus populaires, les volcans etc.

  • Quiet, peaceful, and serene this house is a great deal within walking distance to a great break. 5 Minute walk to Playa Negra and easy drive to shops in town. Terrific breeze on the second floor with the ceiling fans and windows open - we didn't have to turn on the AC our entire stay.
