Kai's place was exactly what we needed. It's quiet and serene and the landscaping is beautiful. There's lots of wildlife around. It sits on a piece of land where Kai lives and two other homes he built. They are all just up or down the hill from each other. It's a cool set up for sure. We had bikes and no car to get around playa grande and it was never an issue. The bike ride up the hill to the house can burn some calories but we welcomed that. There is a little grocery down the street that's great but only accepts cash and there is no nearby ATM so be prepared for that. Although every other place we went accepted credit or debit cards. Kai did bring us to a larger food store and the ATM while we were there. It was about 15 mins away. He's very accommodating and hardworking. He also connected us up with a ride to get to our next spot in tamarindo. We spent the days at the beach and the evenings at the nearby restaurants/bars. It was super low key and relaxing. There's a little surf shop down the street named frijoles locos and we spent a decent amount of time there and got surf lessons from JJ, whose awesome. The house was comfortable despite not having air conditioning. The windows bring in breeze and the fans are adjustable and for us Americans, necessary. Playa grande is known for surfing and privacy. That's what you'll get there. No hustle and bustle.

This was such an amazing place surrounded by nature, monkeys and birds galore. Walkable to one of the most beautiful secluded beaches around. Great surf but also gentle shore break for kids. A convenience store also in walkable distance. Even though it reached 100 degrees most days, this house is cleverly constructed high on a ridge so a cool breezes abound. Loved sitting on the front terrace with our coffee in the mornings watchng the monkeys eat their breakfast and birds flittering about. Can't wait to return and hope to bring friends and family with.

Glad I stayed at Kai's place in Playa Grande instead of Tamarindo- peaceful, comfortable, yet close to beautiful beach. Very happy to wake up every morning listening to wildlife and being so close to nature. Kai provided very detailed driving instructions, so the place is very easy to find once at Playa Grande. Kai made every effort to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Kai was aslo very helpful answering my questions about Costa Rica prior to my trip. Certainly a great way to learn about this beautiful country from someone who has been living there for 20+ years! Thanks Kai !

Kai was great! Met us upon arrival. We were early and needed to drop off our stuff so we could go pick up our 5th friend, Kai let us toss our stuff in the house while it was being cleaned which was super awesome.

Kia was there to greet us and was very helpful suggesting places to eat. Throughout our 3 day stay, he was always around working on the landscape and answering our questions.

Definitely a hidden space. Perfect location to go to the beach and at the same time be away from the beach. 5 minute walks change the entire scene. You take a chance renting homes, Kai's place is a chance to take. Could not have had a better house in a better location. This place was prime. I'm 27 and wish I would have spent more time here!
