We just got home from Costa Rica & I am so depressed our trip is over. Casa de Luz was the perfec place to stay. Very close to the town & awesome views of the beach. The house was super nice. We had a maid & groundskeeper every day. We hired a chef for dinner which was super convenient. The manager Aly was super nice & friendly & helped out with anything we needed. We had 14 people and it was very comfortable & spacious. We went in July which is part of their rainy season. It was beautiful & only had random rain showers. No shower last very long. Highly recommend this house!
We had a Fantastic time at Casa de Luz. We had 7 couples in our party and we did not feel cramped at all. We had a couple of issues with the water pressure and with an air conditioner freezing up but they were taken care of the same day. Aly the concierge was great she arranged all of our Excursions prior to our arrival and they were Great!!
She was just a phone call away for any of our needs and even arranged a few last minute dinner reservations, massages and cook.
Patricia the cooks food is delicious and I would highly recommend her.
The made did a wonderful job cleaning up after all of us and you really did not even know she was there most of the time.
Would definitely return to this house if ever vacationing with a large group again.
I wake up hoping I can still hear the crash of the waves outside our beautiful room at Casa de Luz. Our group had 7 couples and we still had an extra bedroom that would be perfect if you plan to take kids on your Costa Rican vacation. The beachfront property offered stunning views from nearly every room of the house. We snorkeled at low tide, then enjoyed the infinity pool late afternoons/evenings. Our concierge, Aly, scheduled all the must see excursions and was more than helpful if we had questions. She also made reservations at restaurants, for our large group & gave us great suggestions for dining. My favorite excursion was the sunset sail on the serendipity with Captain Judd & Crew, where we saw vibrant-colored sea animals on our snorkel and had the first whale sighting of the season.
The house is elegant, clean and comfortable. Only a few couples shared a bathroom. Daily cleaning service really made a difference in not having to worry about clean linens or spending precious vacation time on chores. And we utilized the chef Priscilla more than we had scheduled-her meals were fresh, delicious and allowed us to relax & enjoy.
Things I brought & never used: towels (plenty at the villa but bring one for the beach), dress clothes& heels (most restaurants are very casual-flip globs are the uniform) and rain gear (it is the rainy season but we only had one afternoon shower.
I'm already dreaming of my next trip to Casa de Luz.
My fiance and I booked this house in October for our July wedding and a week-long family reunion. Casa de Luz is an amazing property and lives up to its every description. It can't be beat!! Aly worked with me from the time we booked right up through our last day on-site. She was amazing and has forever changed our view of a concierge and of AirBnB. She set us up with tailored adventures that suited our entire group (23-30 people at any one time), and saved us from planning a couple that were not well suited to the conditions or our expectations/desires. Our ATV trip to Lola's was the PERFECT intro to Costa Rica for the family, the wedding, horseback riding, zip lining, catamaran tour, snorkeling, surfing >> she hit it out of the park. Friendly, RESPONSIVE, available, & experienced!! She took our stay to the next level!!!
We found Casa De Luz over a year ago. Aly quickly reached out to offer her services in setting up tours and providing information.
Let's begin with the house. It is a beautiful spacious dream home with great views of the ocean an quick access to Tamarindo. Every room was spotless and comfortable. Any questions we had, Aly was immediately there to respond to with recommendations or assistance in reservations.
We hosted our wedding here and it could not have gone more perfectly. From Aly's assistance in coordinating vendors and the space to the chefs that were there for breakfast each morning and our wedding dinner.
If you just want a magical vacation or you are hosting an important life even, this is the place to do it.
