Beautiful simple home! Loved the windows and the ocean view and looking out on all of the beautiful trees and dessert plants. Great birds around - especially in am. Quiet and private. Saw monkeys in the trees our first evening there. Heard howlers in early am's. Easy walk through the woods down to the beach. The beach is quiet (National Park right where you enter, some houses a bit further down). Didn't feel like my 5 and 8 year old could swim at this surf beach but we played in the waves. Easy drive to better swimming beaches. Bring your own beach towel as there's not one for you at this house. Took surf lessons in Tamarindo. The house is easy walk to a handful of good restaurants (I preferred the less touristy ones). Also a little market just a couple blocks away to get fruit and all the basics to cook at home if you want. There's a Vitamix blender to make fruit smoothies! Only downsides (and these were no big deal): no AC (but lots of good fans and windows), no TV (yeah! didn't want one), no laundry, no pool (again didn't want one). Electricity went out for a couple hours one afternoon. Kai was there and very nice. Our family with 4 kids and 2 adults had plenty of room. What a dream beach spot! Would recommend to all my friends.
Slice of Heaven
Our family of seven stayed at Kai's property for three nights in March. This home is absolutely perfect. The layout of the property, the architectural features (beautiful timbers and rocked beams), the cleaniness, the comfort, I could go on and on. We loved the wild life. We saw amazing and many species and colors of birds every day and all day. Our kids especially loved the monkeys who came to visit regularly every morning and the gigantic lizard who every once in a while would make his way up the hill to our patio. The beach is a quick 5 min walk and one of the most beautiful beaches we've visited. Our favorite part of our whole Costa Rica trip was all seven of us swimming in the ocean tossing a coconut over the waves while watching the sun set - I'll never forget it! Town is also a quick 5 min walk with lots of great restaurant options - we had fresh bagels every morning from the bagel shop for breakfast and tacos from the beach stand almost every day for lunch. So many great choices - fresh delicious food all very reasonable priced (important for a family of 7!). The kitchen in the house is very accommodating for those who'd rather eat in and their is a small grocery store also in walking distance. There is a surf shop (next to bagel store) where you can rent bikes, surf boards, boogie boards, etc. - ask for Marco! I can't say enough great things about this home, it's location (< 1 mile from the airport!) and the beautiful little town of Playa Grande - we love love loved it!!
Best of sea and jungle experience with a little resort thrown in
The property is very simple but has everything you need. Easy walk to the beach with a lovely ecotourism hotel that is very welcoming. Would recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle to explore the many other beaches. We will definitely return.
Beautiful house in a beautiful location! Comfortable and spacious. There is a gorgeous view from every window and one morning at least 20 monkeys greeted us. We loved our stay here. Enjoyed walking to the beach and to Kike’s for a delicious meal.
Beautiful Property, Fantastic Host, Great Town
Very clean, spacious, great view from the balcony, and excellent host; Kai is very friendly and helpful. The wildlife on the property was fantastic, we woke up to a family of howler monkeys on the first day, and saw something new almost every day. The grounds were extremely well kept, and there are plenty of good restaurants close by. It's about a 10-minute walk to the beach; probably faster if you don't have kids. Great visit to Playa Grande and Casa Linda Vista, thanks Kai.
Beautiful property at a great location
We really enjoyed our stay in one of the houses on Kai's property! The location is great, with a very easy walk to the nearby quiet beach and several nearby restaurants. The house itself was very pretty, clean, and maintained with obvious pride. Lots of wildlife also enjoy the property, and it's a treat to hear all the monkeys and birds in the morning. Kai was also very helpful with any kind of information, and always made sure we were comfortable. We would definitely recommend this location to other travellers.
