Welcome to Casa Marina!
The property consists of a house with 2 separate efficiency apartments, one sleeps up to 4 people the other one 2.
Each efficiency has its own little kitchen facility, with a stove, a microwave, a toaster and a coffee maker. Two couples or a small group of friends can rent both units in combination, thus getting exclusive use of the pool and barbeque.
Casa Marina is located in a gated residential community, very quiet and secluded and completely immersed in nature. The beach is breathtaking and only a few meters away.
While on vacation in Playa Grande there's a lot you can do, surf is the most popular activity, even if you can't surf you can give it a try , there are several experienced instructors. You can walk the 4km long beach and, in season you can go see the giant Leatherback turtles as they lay their eggs. There are also day trips you can take, sportfishing, sailing, scubadiving and hiking the volcano and a lot more than that!
you can just take it easy and relax by the pool or at the beach and do absolutely nothing...
Marina's place was one of the best rentals I have ever been in. Awesome location, great amenities and fantastic host. 5/5 stars!
We drove into Playa Grande and had no trouble finding the house. It is clean, beautiful, well stocked and Marina was welcoming. The neighborhood is quiet and the beach is beautiful and much less populated than the nearby Tamarindo. We stayed for five days and four nights and we wish we had spent even more time here! The sunsets are amazing and the local food quite good. After spending a day on the beach it was great to be able to come back and enjoy the pool at the house! Highly recommended to stay here.
Tout était parfait avec Marina ! Une petite marche de 5 min nous mène à la plage. Les photos sont très représentatives de la réalité. De bons conseils sont donné par Marina (Playa Grande Surf Camp est un endroit idéal pour manger et louer un surf).
We loved staying at Casa Marina in Playa Grande. Marina is so welcoming and her place is very relaxing. The kitchen has all the cooking things you need except the food :) Pool is awesome and the beach is only a 5 min walk away! She also booked the turtle tour for us before we even got there which was nice. The neighborhood she lives in is very safe and even has a good restaurant and small market in it. We would definitely stay at Marina's again.
Amazing location, very peaceful, close access to the beach at 5 minutes walk. Best sunset and beach in CR. Marina is a great host and is very helpful. Would have stayed longer, it was hard to leave this little paradise.
Casa Marina was a wonderful place for our vacations. The place was even better than we imagined, very much like a home away from home. The place was clean and had everything we needed. We loved our next door neighbor and shared an amazing dinner with Marina and our new friends. We highly recommend the place for a warm, simple and relaxing vacation. One of the best things was that it was only a short 5 min walk to the beach! :)
My fiancé and I came to Playa Grande to surf and we could not have picked a better place to stay. We had the most amazing time staying here at Marinas. She is a very helpful host (arranging transportation, dining/shopping suggestions, surf board rentals, etc.) and the space was impeccably clean, tastefully decorated, and an incredible price for its proximity to the ocean. We will be back for sure!!!
Came to Costa Rica for a Christmas vacation, and came back again and again , until I finally decided to move permanently. I love the tropical climate and the laid back lifestyle.
