“Secluded with Short drive to Playa Negra”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I stayed at Casa Ventana in early Sept. 2014 for a surf trip. I have been visiting playa negra for 15 years but have never stayed in rancho playa negra (the housing development where this rental is located). Rancho playa negra is nice in that there is a guard at the gate to make sure that no one enters who does not belong. It is located in the tiny town of Los Pargos which is right before Playa negra when you are heading south from Tamarindo/Avellanas. 5-10 minutes to Avellanas (one of the most beautiful beaches in Guanacaste) and 30 mins from Tamarindo where you can find ATM's, shops, and nightlife. Tamarindo is also one of the best places in the world to learn how to surf because the waves are small and clean. This rental is oceanfront but it sits on a small cliff over not much of an actual beach. I did not take the time to explore enough to see if there is beach access from the property. I just opted to make the 3 minute drive to playa negra hotel every morning for my surf sessions. It is very easy and convenient. The house was nice with a rustic vibe. Two a/c rooms and a loft over the kitchen that gets relatively cool at night. The pool is nice and so is the long big balcony that overlooks it. I enjoyed my stay thoroughly and have no complaints at all. If you do not have a neighbor to the south, you will be very secluded and private. I loved that about the rental.

“Beach front with no beach”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The house is nice but not suitable for seniors or kids, because there is to many stairs. Air conditionner in 2 rooms on the first floor but the third room up the stairs just a fan so it's warm during the night.The beds are so and so , twin and double on the first floor and the mattresses are very thin. The water cooler not working.
Very nice pool and a very nice patio, but the bbq is near the pool, so not very useful for supper wich is 2 flights of stepsdown.
It is describe has a beach front, BUT NO BEACH JUST ROCKS.
It is far from the nearest town, there is some nice restaurants in the village.
The beach is not that great, no chairs, no shade not walking distance from the property

My husband and I spent 5 romantic nights at Casa Ventanas del Mar. It was an incredible vacation. The location was so beautiful and serene. The house is impeccable! And Mary and her staff couldn't have been more welcoming, helpful, and attentive!! I highly recommend Beach Grass Vacation Rentals for your trip to Playa Negra!! We are already planning our next stay!!

Management Response

Thanks so much for the kinds words. You guys were so excited to be here and shared your adventures with wide open eyes, it refreshed my love of why I live in Playa Negra. Casa Ventana del Mar is perfect for a couple or small family/group. It's the last house at the end of a beachfront road with incredible ocean views and over looking the massive Los Pargos bay. The private garden courtyard, undercover decks with ample outdoor seating and salt water pool just adds to charm of this comfortable rental. I am happy to say this couple has already rebooked and is returning in Feb 2014. Looking forward to seeing you and showing you more adventures!

“Wonderful Family Vacation”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The trip to Costa Rica with a week long stay at Beachgrass rentals was wonderful. Our family wanted to experience a warm tropical location that was safe, beautiful, and affordable. We opted to visit Playa Negra, which is south of Tamarindo along the Northern West Coast of Costa Rica. Our accommodations were scenic, comfortable, and safe in a gated community on the beach. We made friends and enjoyed our stay being surrounded by an environment that is reminscent of tropical U.S. locations such as Hawaii, California, and Florida before commercialization. There were many English speaking visitors at the Liberia airport, making it apparent that Costa Rica is quickly becoming a favorite alternative to the now risky vacation spot of Mexico. Mary, the manager at Beachgrass rentals is helpful, honest, courteous, speaks both English and Spanish, and totally understands the area and the needs of a visiting family. We flew in to the Liberia airport, picked up our Avis car rental (everyone spoke English), and drove the hour long drive to Playa Negra along the scenic Pacific ocean. The car rental, restaurants, and gas stations all accepted credit cards and U.S. dollars. All of the people we met in Playa Negra and Tamarindo, Costa Rica are friendly, kind, and many speak English as well as Spanish. It was a great experience! I would highly recommended a visit to Costa Rica for everyone seeking an enjoyable vacation. We will definitely be visiting Costa Rica again in the near future. Best Wishes!

“Our home away from home in paradise!”
Reviewed 6 May 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Our three month vacation is spent every year at Casa Ventanas where you can watch whales and beautiful sunsets. There is truly everything you need for a comfortable stay. Playa Negra and Avellanas are minutes away with the best beaches/surfing and resturants/bars. It is paradise... Pura Vida!
