Casa Camaleon was ALL that my girlfriend and I were looking for! Quiet, peaceful, relaxing, super short stroll to the beach, and in my opinion some world class dining options available within a short walk as well. Her description was accurate, she was a kind host and with her residence right nextdoor an answer to a question was usually a shout away. Loved the front little patio for any time of day but especially sipping coffee and breakfast in the mornings and a nice cocktail at night listening to the swaying of the palms. Will most definitely be back.
Sharrs accommodation is a great experience and the perfect choice for staying in Playa Grande. Rooms were comfortable, spacious and only a few minutes from the beach.
All that is nothing compared with the kindness of Sharr. I was in a motorbike accident during my stay and the lengths she went to help me out were amazing. She is a wonderful person!
Sharr is a fantastic host. We arrived no problem and Sharr greeted us and answered all of our questions. The cabin is perfect - quiet, and very comfortable. If you want a nice place to stay outside the busyness of Tamarindo, go here! Sharr organized surf lessons with Doug, who was great. 2 times per week a truck drives by with fresh and beautiful fruits and vege's, which was amazing. The property is a 5 min walk to the beach with the best sunset ever. We would recommend anyone to stay here. Thanks Sharr! Hope to see you again soon.

We had a great time at Casa Camaleon! Indoors and out, attention to detail is evident. Sharr is a welcoming and attentive host who has created a very peaceful atmosphere. Great experience.
We had a great four nights at Casa Camaleon, and in Playa Grande in general. Finding the apartments was a little tricky, even with Sharr's detailed instructions. It's a small community, so asking for directions wasn't a problem. I'd definitely recommend arriving during the day time though. Sharr wasn't there when we arrived, but her daughter showed us to our room.
Casa Camaleon is about a 5 min walk from the beach, the apartments have conveniences like outdoor shower, outdoor sink and laundry line for cleaning up after swimming or surfing. Air conditioning in the apartment was a huge plus. There's a small grocery store about 10 min away-- has all the basic foods, beverages, pharmacy, etc. Also, a few restaurants within walking distance.
One minor complaint is that the room was a little tight for two people with full sized suitcases. There's a large bed (> king) in the room that takes up most of the space. But really, when the beach is so close, you're not in the room that much.
Sharr helped to arrange surf lessons through Frijoles Locos (very good for beginners) and a turtle tour (not entirely recommended-- first guide left without us, but we found another guide...turtles were incredible, but the whole area was overrun with tourist groups...none of this was Sharr's fault, of course).
Overall, it was a great stay, and in hindsight, we should have extended our stay another two days for the rest of our time in Costa Rica.
I had a really nice experience staying in Playa Grande at Casa Camaleon. For the price, the rooms are very nice. Nicer than what I was expecting actually. Nice shower, big fridge, kettles, stove, etc. for cooking and a decor. Beach is a short walk away. If you want to get around, I recommend renting a bicycle. Riding on the beach at low tide was fun :-) I also liked the slow paced ambience of this area as opposed to say Tamarindo. Sharr was very helpful for getting things organized (ferry trip, surf board rental, surf teacher, etc.) for me. If I'm coming to this area again, I'm sure I'll be coming back to Casa Camaleon.
Excellent experience! Clean, secure, friendly, very highly recommended. Very helpful with travel logistics and surfing advice. Great board rentals.

If I can surf every day its a day well spent. The ocean is a place that lets you leave feeling new. I cannot live without it.
I am so grateful to have found my home here. It is near perfect paradise!
