We had a great time at Casa Chameleon in Playa Grande. Playa Grande is the perfect place to surf and relax with friends and family. Case Chameleon was clean and had all the essentials. Sharr was friendly and gracious and had helpful reccommendations about the area and transportation. (She even gave us some helpful surf tips) The other guests at Casa Chameleon were also friendly and generous. We fell in love with Playa Grande and would happily book another stay at Casa Chameleon.
We had a few wonderful and relaxing days at Casa Camaleon. Sharr's place is simple, very clean and quiet - a perfect place to use as a home base while exploring the Playa Grande beach and Tamarindo area. Sharr was very pleasant and helpful. She arranged a couple of tours for us, which we greatly appreciated. A highlight was the Bakery truck and the vegetable truck that came right to Casa Camaleon a couple of times per week. The beach, the ferry to Tamarindo, the Bula Bula restaurant (in the hotel) and estuary tours were all only short walks away.
We were two couples and Sharr's place worked perfectly for us. A great place to stay!
Wonderful stay in Playa Grande. Sharr was there to greet us and the accommodations were clean and tidy. Very safe area. Appliances worked and the entire region was indeed tranquil and quiet. A good idea to stop ahead for groceries as there aren't many close-by eateries. But with a walk or a bike or a rental, there is plenty to be found.
Howler monkeys and good surf were our highlights. Take a quick boat taxi for a day in Tamarindo. Definitely recommend this place!
To Sharr and Casa Camaleon,
We loved the stay in Playa Grande, it was the first time we used Airbnb and now we became fun of the whole system, and that was because our incredible 'the most relaxing' stay in Casa Camaleon. All the hints Sharr gave us the first day were perfect and the place was really precise for what we were looking for.
The directions Sharr gave us to get to Casa Camaleon were excellent, otherwise it would have been impossible to arrive to the place in the dark, besides my roaming was not working. GRACIAS Sharr for them!
We needed to disconnect from San José and city pollution, noise and so on, and this was 'the place', we highly recommend it!
Nice, clean, cozy, Sharr said something like "if rest and peace is what you're looking for, this is the place"! Basically you don't need the car, neither move much to get to the beach, to the basics and more, like a 'jazz meal might or a friday bbq', nice small restaurants, a bit of dry tropical forest, lots of sun, all is there!
One thing to add and important one to now if you are looking for a Latino atmosphere, which could be the case being in Costa Rica, well this is not the place, this is a very North American environment, it's is definitely not a typical Latin American one, most of it is in English!.
Share was so flexible with our dates and I really appreciated it. The place really met our needs for comfort and convenience. It was very close to the beach and to a wonderful restaurant called Seven. We had a great time!
This place was perfect for what we wanted. Great beds, AC was cold and the kitchen was top notch. I would stay here again no problem !
We had a great time in playa grande. We would definitely go back and stay at casa camaleon. Short walk to beach and easy to get to tamarindo by boat. We met couples that stayed in tamarindo and they complained about how loud it was and we told them it's so quiet in playa grande. Sharr was very helpful if we had questions about area and anything that we needed. We might be back next year if we could get better flights. What a journey coming from winnipeg,Mb. Maybe see you again, thanks sharr

Surfer and Beach Goer
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!
