“We loved watching the sun set over the terrace!”
Reviewed 12 April 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Ventana in Playa Negra, Costa Rica. The home is beautiful and spacious and the area is very easy to get around. We loved the local cafes, nearby beach and day trips. My daughter learned to surf and my son played soccer with a group of local boys.

The weather was perfect during our stay and Costa Rica has become our favorite vacation destination.

“Absolutely breathtaking views...”
Reviewed 11 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The house was immaculate! Everything was as expected and more. There is a beach at high tide and short walk, but it is mostly volcanic rock, which was fine for us as we enjoyed it being a bit different. Great view of sunsets and pool cleaner came at least twice. Very little bugs! Only 30-minutes to Tamarindo, but far enough out to you are not near any tourists if you like the peace and quiet. No neighbors to the right and there is a house to the left, but well hidden in the landscape. Would definitely stay again.

“Paradise Found!”

We loved this place! The location was exquisite, the sunset views amazing, the pool just lovely, the bird life entertaining, and the horses were a surprise bonus.

The house was well furnished. Everything you need, from coffee maker to blender to beach towels and hairdryer were there. Even some niceties like paper towels and coffee filters were provided, as well as salt and pepper.

They provide bottled water in a cooler dispenser, but you can also use the water right from the sink for cooking, filling ice trays, and brushing your teeth.

Bring your binoculars as we actually saw whales cavorting in the Pacific Ocean one day.

The only drawback is that you may not want to leave the property once you get there. Took us three days to venture out for a restaurant meal.

At this time of year there is not much open. We approached several businesses that we had found on the internet only to find them closed until later in the year. Still, there are two restaurants in Playa Negra that are serving a variety of yummy food and the full kitchen allows you to prepare your own meals.

Brenda with Beachgrass Rentals was so friendly and helpful. We would definitely book with them again!

Note: If you have arthritis issues in your back, you may want to drive in on Hwy 160 through El Guapote as the mud roads can be very bumpy and hard to navigate the potholes at night. The highway only adds a couple of minutes to your drive and well worth it to save your back and neck for those of us with chronic pain.

Thank you so much for sharing your stay with us. It was a pleasure hosting you and so glad you enjoyed the home. We are thrilled when guests embrace all the natural surroundings we have at our rentals. Taking time to relax and have great sites right at your doorstep is a plus. During Sept and October many places close down during our slow season but they fire back up again November through August and are worth it! Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit!

“A beautiful view and a salt water pool!”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Casa Ventana was our home away from home for 10 days. The property has direct access to the beach, a nice pool, and offers a comfortable and secure stay. Take advantage of arriving with the house provisioned as you like, the in home massage, the warmth of the Playa Negra people and the breathtaking sunsets. To top it off, Mary is a fantastic host.

It was so great hosting you at Casa Ventana, this 2br/2ba with a pool is perfect for a couple. You two fit in like locals and it was a pleasure to reacquaint you with all the wonderful things Playa Negra has to offer. I hope to welcome you back one day soon to your home away from home. Thank you!

“A trip that changed our lives. We will always book with Beach Grass.”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

If you are looking for one of the best vacations, Beach Grass Properties (Mary) is the way to go! Her expertise, follow up, attention to detail, was the the absolute best!

We've stayed in Playa Negra prior (Wave House) and it doesn't even come close to our current stay! The house is right on the beach, has everything you could possibly need, very secure and the security crew was amazing. If it's surfing, relaxing or just taking the time to check out the local area/beaches, do it right - book a house, rent a car & hit her up! I know we are once again in Feb.!
