Beautiful homes! I stayed with a group of 13 people and we fit just fine in the largest and meadium sized houses. The houses are tucked away about a 7 minute walk to the beach with monkeys and iguanas everywhere! It was amazing waking up in the jungle with so much wildlife. Also, Playa Grande is the most beautiful beach that we went to over our trip and even if you decide to stay at a different location, I would recommend coming to playa grande for surfing or collecting shells. Remember to rent an SUV because if the dirt roads and rocks. 10/10 would come here again; our group had such an amazing experience!

We had a great time in this nice and cozy place. Located in a very large private property, it is very quiet, and still very near to everything you might need. Restaurants and shops are very close, and even though is not beach front, it's a nice walk to go to the beach. Many nice beaches to visit around Playa Grande.

Wonderful location on the top of a hill a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. Woke up to the sounds of exotic birds, howler monkeys and surf each day. Simple, open concept, comfortable beds, ideal for seven adults. Six of our group were delayed due to a storm-cancelled connecting flight in Canada. Kai helped the one woman who did arrive shop for groceries for the first day.

Kai bol veľmi nápomocný pri inštrukciách, dokonca aj nakreslil mapku a napísal podrobné informácie, ako sa dostať do ubytovania. Ubytovanie bolo nádherné! Okolie a vybavenie bolo úžasné. Očakávala som trochu bližšie ku pláži, ale i tak to bolo do 5 minút. Kai nám dokonca požičal aj svoj surf a poradil, kde je supermarket. Dom bol čistý a Kai nás počkal, aj keď sme prišli v neskorej večernej hodine. Absolútna spokojnosť!

we stayed at kai house for 3 days. we really enjoyed the proximity of the beach and the cleanliness of the house. Like many place we stayed the were some ant inside but i doubt it's possible to completely avoid them in CR. the path to the beach was a bit overtaken by nature and during one of our pass a wasp stung one of our groupe. kai was kind enought to remove the nest the following day. He also make sure to offer cleaning of the house and new towel after 2 days. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the ease of communication with kai. Thanks for everything.

Kai's home in Playa Grande is nothing short of SPECTACULAR!!! It really is a little slice of heaven atop a tropical hill overlooking Playa Grande and the beautiful jungle inbetween. Kai was more than welcoming, meeting us at the house to give a tour of the home and hand us the keys for our 3 night stay. He lives close on the property so anything that we might've needed he let us know that we could let him know. The home is everything we were looking for in our Costa Rican stay- spacious, airy, comfortable, accessible, accommodating and welcoming. It really felt like home. Kai is an excellent host and I strongly recommend this home!!!

Our group's stay at Casa Linda Vista was wonderful! Kai was very quick to respond to all of my questions before the trip. Once we arrived in country he made our stay carefree and provided all that was advertised. The location was great. It is so close to many beautiful and sometimes empty beaches. If you have desire to get groceries a recommend going all the way to the mega super on the way to Tamarindo. The smaller shops around you and the Super Compra are more expensive. The nearby surf shops and restaurants were incredible. If you only go eat at one place go to Kike's. Great trip. 10/10 would go again.
