Came to Costa Rica for a Christmas vacation, and came back again and again , until I finally decided to move permanently. I love the tropical climate and the laid back lifestyle.

The place was perfect! Quiet and tranquil, and just a few minute walk to Playa Grande. Marina was very kind and accommodating, and made my girlfriend and I feel very welcome. We stayed two weeks, and it was the perfect spot to explore, with the river estuary not too far away (boat tours available), wildlife, and lots of areas near by to explore, including the very unique and secluded, Playa Carbon! The little area has everything you need if you wanted to make food for yourself, or a few nice restaurants with great food. Surfing was great as well! Thanks so much for a memorable vacation Marina!
The neighborhood of Playa Grande is definitely a hidden gem! Casa Marina was in an ideal location, just a 2 minute walk from the beach and about an hour drive from the airport. (We stayed here for the last two nights of our trip so we had a rental car, but you could definitely just take a taxi from the airport and get everywhere by foot.) The pool outside was great to lounge at, or to refresh after the beach, and the landscaping was pretty. The room itself wasn't that great and had a strange odor, but I think it was fair given the reasonable price for a place so close to the water. Along the beach (all well within walking distance) is a quaint road with a few restaurants and a surf lesson/rental place (boards are $20/day, and with a 2 hour lesson it's just $40). My boyfriend had a great surf lesson at sunset and we ended up hanging out with the instructors later because they were so chill and it's such a small and friendly town. Also, we had many great meals at Mar Azul--get the breakfast tacos, iced coffee, or mahi mahi sandwich!! Marina was kind enough to do our laundry so we wouldn't have to pack up our dirty clothes from a week of adventures, which we really appreciated!

Everything was fabulous! So close to the beach. I felt safe and comfortable. Marina was very helpful and courteous. It's pretty remote and quiet, great spot to unwind and chill. The room was just like the photo. Pool and property are very well maintain. I would recommend this spot 100%! Loved it.
We had a great experience at Marina's place! The pool and patio were hands down one of our favorite places to spend hot afternoons when the beach was too hot. It felt like your own private getaway, with beautiful plants and flowers. The beach was an easy 3 minute walk on a nice quiet dirt road, and the beach itself was never crowded. A beautiful, huge beach mostly to yourself. We had a wonderful time, and hope to return to Costa Rica in the future.
Marina's place was one of the best rentals I have ever been in. Awesome location, great amenities and fantastic host. 5/5 stars!
We drove into Playa Grande and had no trouble finding the house. It is clean, beautiful, well stocked and Marina was welcoming. The neighborhood is quiet and the beach is beautiful and much less populated than the nearby Tamarindo. We stayed for five days and four nights and we wish we had spent even more time here! The sunsets are amazing and the local food quite good. After spending a day on the beach it was great to be able to come back and enjoy the pool at the house! Highly recommended to stay here.
Tout était parfait avec Marina ! Une petite marche de 5 min nous mène à la plage. Les photos sont très représentatives de la réalité. De bons conseils sont donné par Marina (Playa Grande Surf Camp est un endroit idéal pour manger et louer un surf).
We loved staying at Casa Marina in Playa Grande. Marina is so welcoming and her place is very relaxing. The kitchen has all the cooking things you need except the food :) Pool is awesome and the beach is only a 5 min walk away! She also booked the turtle tour for us before we even got there which was nice. The neighborhood she lives in is very safe and even has a good restaurant and small market in it. We would definitely stay at Marina's again.
Amazing location, very peaceful, close access to the beach at 5 minutes walk. Best sunset and beach in CR. Marina is a great host and is very helpful. Would have stayed longer, it was hard to leave this little paradise.
Casa Marina was a wonderful place for our vacations. The place was even better than we imagined, very much like a home away from home. The place was clean and had everything we needed. We loved our next door neighbor and shared an amazing dinner with Marina and our new friends. We highly recommend the place for a warm, simple and relaxing vacation. One of the best things was that it was only a short 5 min walk to the beach! :)
