Interaction with Guests

Playa Langosta is a beautiful mixture of both residential and commercial properties. It's a small community filled with trees, monkeys, exotic birds, iguanas, and beautiful sunsets!
Local buses and private taxi services are available. Car and bike rentals are located in Tamarindo, but walking or biking a 1/2 mile into town are other options.
Have fun, be respectful of your neighbors and leave property as you found it. No parties, no smoking on property and no pets. Pura Vida!
We loved everything about our two months at Casa Laguna Rica! Tara and Kattia addressed every issue we encountered promptly and with kindness. The neighborhood is wonderful! Right across the street is The Surf Club with Mike and Wendy. They are a wealth of knowledge! Join them for bingo and support cleaning up the beach. Matty's is a must for great breakfast and lunch! And my personal favorite is Snoop. Dogs are amazing and colorful here, probably because they roam free!
Tara's house was a pleasure to stay at in.. The property looks exactly like the photo's and the location can't be beat.. The property manager was very helpful and attentive.. The gardener and the housekeeper did a great job and were pleasant and friendly.. The shower is good, with plenty of hot water and good pressure.. The internet connection was fast enough for movies.. The beds are top of the line..
The only minor things to be aware of are that: if you are in the bottom unit, you can hear some movement upstairs.. that the washer and dryer and the electricity are not included in the rate... that the front doors to the porch are tricky enough to open and close, 2 locks, 4 latches, that I didn't open then too often and hence, didn't use the front porch too much..
With that being said about the front porch, it brings me to my favorite part of the house which is in the back yard anyway.. there are 3 bushes right out of the back door that attract humming birds all day everyday.. I saw at least 5 different kinds while I was there.. Very peaceful to sit and watch them just a few feet away..
Thank you for writing a very descriptive & helpful review on our home. Since you stayed at the house for 2 months, we really value your comments. You were such a pleasant guest to have at Casa Laguna Rica. I know the staff enjoyed having you as well. I want to clarify the point you made in your comment about the utilities/washer and dryer. Since you were a long term renter, these additional costs applied to your rental. If you had stayed 1-2 weeks, you would not have had these costs. The washer & dryer is typically is not made available to renters. Although you may hear some movement from the upstairs guests, the downstairs is a bit more private & convenient with two patios and direct access to the pool & backyard. It was wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed the peaceful backyard, & the neighborhood with it's proximity to the beach. We hope to have you back as a guest soon. Pura Vida!
We stayed at Taras house in the downstairs flat for four nights in August 2014. Beeing there during the off season it was very quiet and we could feel almost alone at the local beach that really is only a few minutes walk away. The house comes with everything you need for daily life. We cooked almost every evening by ourselves. Everything was clean and functioning, the small pool, the hammock, sun lounger and outside table for having meals make it perfect for a family as we are with two (almost) adult children.
This place is spectacular and much better than the photos. Very close to the wonderful Playa Langosta beach, where we spent the days in the ocean surfing. The place was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. There was a small grocery store across the street and some cheaper options available less than 10 minutes away by car. The pool is great for cooling off from the heat. Dealing with the property manager was a breeze and she was available to answer the questions we had. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and if I can I will be back to stay here, hopefully for a longer than 5 days.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We will provide a clean beach house in the lovely town of Playa Langosta. Casa Laguna Rica is the perfect vacation rental while visiting Costa Rica.
