LOCATION & SURROUNDING AREAS
 
• It’s beachfront in Langosta Beach
• A short 5-minute drive from Tamarindo
• A short 15-minute drive from the Tamarindo Airport
• 1h drive from the Liberia International Airport

PLAYA LANGOSTA
Casa de Luz is an elegant beachfront mansion located on the stretch of Langosta Beach known as Millionaire Row. It is conveniently located near the beach, the Langosta Supermarket, and fantastic restaurants in Tamarindo Downtown. Although is not recommended to swim during high tide, once the low tide comes in, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful sets of tide pools in the area. Suitable for all ages, it's the best way to relax on this mostly secluded beach while exploring the different types of marine life including small fish and stunning seashells.
This securely gated property consists of a main villa with two independent courtyard casitas, exuberant tropical gardens, a private pool, and unmatched proximity to the soothing sound of surf lapping onto the sand. 
Although this house is as beautiful as a famous masterpiece with its beachfront location, please remember that bonfires, fireworks, and/or sky lanterns are not allowed in this area during any time of your stay; as it is located in a Marine National park zone with strict governmental national park rules and fines may apply.
 

CLEANING
 
Casa de Luz has also gone the extra mile to become our most-recommended option for anyone with skin sensitivities.  New ozone sanitation systems in Casa de Luz’s pool and laundry eliminate 90% of the chlorine from the swimming pool and most of the chemicals normally involved in doing laundry.

Beautiful house, amazing sunsets, incredible staff! Rafa made this trip so easy, he booked all transportation and excursions, dinner recommendations and helped immediately when things went awry! The staff was wonderful, made incredible breakfasts, cleaned and did laundry. The beach and sunsets are beautiful and Tamarindo a quick 5 minute golf cart away! This was a vacation of a lifetime!

Amazing spring break stay!
We just had an incredible spring break with 3 families at Casa de Luz-3 older teens stayed in the Casita which was perfect for them and the adults and other children stayed in the main house. The pool set up is beautiful and shady by late afternoon. The beach is wonderful to watch sunsets. You need water shoes to get in the ocean at low tide and it is not advised to swim at high tide due to the rocks. The house is beautiful, the staff is fabulous and made as breakfast each morning, cleaned everything and did our laundry. We used the private chef service for two dinners and they were so good. They made us snacks, appetizers and drinks as well. Rafa is great-he organized all of our transportation and excursions. He also communicated when things did not go as planned-did have no water a couple of times due to water shortage and the main gate was not working, but he got on it as quickly as he could, especially during a holiday week. He made us dinner reservations as well and added a few people to an excursion last minute. He responded quickly and always ensured we were well taken care of. Playa Longosta is a quieter part of town with great places to eat and an easy golf cart ride into Tamarindo. We loved our week, it is paradise!

Epic house. We took 14 friends to Costa Rica and all I can say is this house was the PERFECT venue to host the location!!! Beach front, beautiful and big. The host/concierge Rafa is the MAN!! From the point you book your stay he basically quarterbacks your entire trip!!! Want to make yourself look like the most well-organized travel planner your friends have ever met? You need Rafa to plan your stay in Tamarindo. The house staff was amazing, house was always clean and food and drinks during the day constantly coming out… whether it was breakfast, ceviche, fun drinks, immaculate dinners. Staying at this place truly allows you to just book your flights and forget the rest. Leave it to Rafa and his team at “Stay in Tamarindo” coordinate the trip of a lifetime.

This property was exactly as expected, we actually had some close friends stay here last Fall so we had a pretty high level of confidence that the property would not disappoint! Rafa and the staff were friendly, helpful and responsive, even with a later than expected arrival, Rafa (host) met us at the property for a great little orientation. The nearby foodtrucks were a hit as were the golf carts that were recommended! This was a great stay!

Wonderful Family Visit to Tamarindo
Wow! What an incredible experience at Casa De Luz! My family of 12 adults and one adorable baby boy spent a week enjoying the sea and pool. The house had excellent gathering spaces and was very comfortable. Rafa provided spot on service both before and during our stay, attending to all of our needs in a timely and professional manner. Our daytime housekeeper prepared a great breakfast daily. Not to be overlooked was the fabulous evening meals prepared by Patricia. Truly a Costa Rican food extravaganza! Thank you to the Stay at Tamarindo staff for an outstanding experience!

Our stay was a beach dream! Rafa went above and beyond to cater to our large group. From airport transportation logistics to restaurant reservations, surfing lessons, groceries delivered to the house, a private chef, fishing trips, adventure tours, even in-house massages. We loved the large and open spaces at the house and the pool area with an ocean infinity view was the cherry on top. Can't recommend this property enough!

My only note is that some rooms upstairs were a bit more “shared” than expected. One room connects to two other rooms that are adjacent, so we had a bit of drama choosing rooms as we were all couples (14 people total) so keep that in mind!
Overall one of my favorite places I’ve ever stayed, highly recommended :)

Howley Family Vacation
We had a fabulous stay and our family of 8 adults and 4 teenage boys, had a wonderful time. The house was so well laid out, that we all had plenty of space and enjoyed the grounds and location immensely. The location was the cherry on top of the sundae. Golf carting to stores, restaurants, food trucks, grocery stores was so easy. Would highly recommend this home to others.

We traveled with six adults and six kids and had a great time at Casa de Luz. The house has a beautiful pool with easy access and views of the beach and sunset. Our group had plenty of room to spread out over the property. The house location was perfectly placed in Playa Langosta with easy access to Tamarindo via golf cart. Rafa our concierge took care of EVERYTHING. Rafa was truly fantastic, and we would highly recommend this property and asking form him to help with your vacation. He made everything at the house seamless, including transportation to & from the airport, golf carts delivered to the house, grocery delivery, meals prepared at the house (including freshly caught mahi-mahi that he also helped book the offshore charter), coordinating with the pool and cleaning staff, zip line tours, etc. We look forward to returning soon!

Villa with beautiful sunsets
We celebrated my parent's 50th anniversary in this villa. There were 15 of us in the house for the week and the house mom's were incredible. It was very nice to have breakfast cooked and the villa cleaned every morning. We did have issues with the washing machine and Rafa and his crew repaired the issue next day. Then the washer broke again that night and they brought us a replacement. My family and I did not get our luggage so the washing machine was very important to us. The location is fantastic and a short walk along the beach or street to the main beach. I would recommend this villa and we plan to be back sometime in the future.

We selected this property for our family gathering and to house everyone for our oldest daughter's wedding. The location and home were perfect with plenty of space for everyone and a great central gathering spot to have meals and quality time together. This home also provided a perfect location for our daughter and her family members to get ready for the wedding, we also took some great family photos down by the beach.

My husband and I stayed at Casa de Luz with our respective families and the place was absolutely perfect. It is directly on the beach in Langosta and is a short drive or walk to Tamarindo. The view from the house is unforgettable and although it's not ideal to swim in the water directly in front of the house, more swimmable water is close by in either direction. We had 15 people staying in the house/casitas and no one felt as if we were on top of each other. The property managers, Stay in Tamarindo, were excellent and provided great customer service. Can't recommend this house enough!

It was everything it needed to be for four families with kids ranging from age 7 to 13. The pool is amazing. The walk to town is about 3/4 of a mile so it takes bit, we loved using the golf cart. The private dinners were a huge plus! The service was nothing short of amazing.

Amazing Multi-family Trip and Stay at Casa de Luz
Our group really enjoyed our stay at the beautiful, spacious and well appointed, Casa de Luz. The home provided the right amount of privacy and connectedness. The kids loved the bunkroom and the couples were happy to have en-suite bathrooms/bedrooms with spacious closets. The grounds are stunning and the outdoor spaces were perfect for socializing, having morning coffees/afternoon cocktails while listening to the waves crashing against the beach. The beach itself is not great for swimming, but excellent for exploring the tide pools and just chilling. We could walk in either direction and access swimmable beaches. The end-to-end service from the US based booking team through to the on site concierge service (thank you Rafa!) ensured that all of our needs from transportation through to tours, kayaking and surfing lessons were taken care of. Rafa also helped us book golf carts (highlight of the trip for the teens and young adults) which were so much more convenient to get around to beaches, shopping, etc than driving. Our house mom arrived early everyday, prepared breakfast for our large group and kept the house tidy and clean. I also highly recommend hiring Patricia to cook evening meals. Delicious food, she does all of the shopping and prepares multi course meals that included delicious desserts (cheesecake, flan, chocolate birthday cake!). A perfect vacation and vacation home.

Outstanding house and location!
Casa De Luz is breathtaking, plain and simple. The house is beautiful inside and out. It is roomy, spacious, well designed, and could not be in a more perfect location. Right on the beach/ocean with front row seats to sunsets every evening, this house checks every single box. Plenty of bedrooms, beds, and bathrooms for our group of 14 (8 adults, 6 teenagers). The kitchen is large and well-equipped. The views out the back of the house, from the back porch, and from the infinity pool are unparalleled. Security is great, as are the house staff and the concierge. The concierge is very responsive and helpful with not only recommendations, but also arranging activities, reservations, and everything in between.

This place is a must for large groups. We had 14 people (8 adults, 6 teens) and everyone had more than enough room. Bedrooms are very spacious, common areas are very comfortable, outside amenities are world class. Location is great, close enough to town for easy back and forth yet far enough away for peace and quiet. The concierge is very responsive and helpful for suggestions and coordination of activities and the house staff are very nice (it’s very helpful to have someone that speaks Spanish).
The ocean view is spectacular, including front row seats for breathtaking sunsets.

Our family of 10 adults and 9 children enjoyed our week at Casa de Luz. The accommodations are spectacular and the service superb. We highly recommend the chef making dinner - made our meal times so less stressful with the grandkids. We will definitely be back some time in the future!

Casa De Luz - Staff & Experience
We came to Casa De Luz not knowing what to expect as majority of our group (of 17) had never been to Costa Rica. Everyone in our group was pleasantly surprised with the abundance of activities in the area including: fishing, exploring, zip lining, spa day, catamaran ride's and countless restaurants & bars to choose from. The staff was excellent with numerous recommendations, accommodations & upmost customer service. There were in-house chefs, cleaning services and several arrangements made by our property manager & concierge. We could not have asked for a better experience and staff to make our Costa Rica trip an unforgettable trip!

This house was beautiful and right off the beach and is very close to Tamarindo. We really enjoyed this house, pool and beach area. The staff was a delight and we would highly recommend the private chef - the food was amazing and they are truly lovely people. We would stay here again!

Amazing place for large family holiday
My group of 21 family members had an amazing time at Casa De Luz. The kitchen and seating areas were great for the large group. The pool was very nice for the kids to have ‘on-property' supervised fun. The beach with really fun tidal pools, and the beach-side hammocks and chairs were an amazing connection to the Pacific Ocean. I highly recommend Casa De Luz but will point out two things you should be aware of. First, it is a solid mile to Tamarindo or just over a mile to the middle of town. We had a couple cars and it was good to have some transport, but many of us walked it many times. There are some groceries a little closer. Golf carts would be a good option if you don't want to have cars, but book early. Next, we had 6 adult couples and kids, right at max capacity. The sleeping arrangements worked out fine for us, but are a little tricky and for a group that big compromises had to be made regarding privacy. So I recommend digging into the bedroom arrangements for large groups. So in a perfect world it would have been slightly closer to town and slightly simpler sleeping arrangements, but everything else about this house and the week I spent there makes up for these minor imperfections and more. I would book it again for sure.

Great location and place to stay for 14 people
The house exceeded all of our expectations. We had a group of 14 that were scheduled to come down in 2020 for a destination wedding but had to cancel. Rescheduled for December of 2021 with with the same group. The house worked great for everyone, the pool area was one of the most used areas. If we wanted to stay in for a meal the kitchen had everything that we needed. We rented golf carts which made it easy to go into Tamarindo. The service provided by Rafa Villegas from Stay in Tamarindo was 5 stars. If you are looking for a great place to stay with a bigger group I would highly recommend Casa De Luz

Spectacular Property right off the beach!
Our stay was wonderful! This property is gorgeous with amazing sunsets and space for everyone. Our concierge Rafa was so helpful and nice going out of his way with all our requests, real attention to details. We had the in-house chef Patricia cook for us twice, including maki-maki caught that day by my son! We rented golf carts making the trip into town fun. We were a group of 12 and the villa had perfect accommodations for all of us. We took advantage of having massages at the villa as well as the tours offered by the property company and all were great! Highly recommend Casa de Luz and Stay in Tamarindo for your trip!!

Luxury with an ocean view!!
We loved our stay at Casa De Luz, it was gorgeous, listening to the ocean, seeing the sunrise and magnificent sunsets in luxury. The Villa is amazing with large bedrooms, beautiful property with a pool, ocean front and spacious common area. Located a few minutes out of Tamarindo we rented golf carts for our stay to go back and forth. Our concierge Rafa went out of his way to meet all our requests and there were a lot! He was so wonderful! We also had the in-house chef Patricia come twice during our stay, one time to cook the mahi-mahi caught that day! We used Stay in Tamarindo for all our transportation and tours. Our entire group took the Waterfall Tour with Eddy who was knowledgable and amazingly accommodating us. The Coffee, Chocolate and Sugarcane tour was a lot of fun too, we ate our way through it! Stay in Tamarindo took care of all our needs. We even had massages at the Villa while listening to the ocean! Could not get better than that!

Amazing property yes, people who work at the property A+, Concierge, Aly, creates a "Ritz" vacation
Our family, now at 16, meets every 2 years for a reunion. We have been doing this for 20+ years and have met around the globe. We have been using VRBO for all the trips. This property, the people working there daily, plus the company handling the property and especially Aly, their concierge, were the best we have have encountered! If you want to be in Tamarindo and have a large group...THIS IS YOUR PLACE! As other reviews say, the property is exactly as the photo describe. Don't let the "don't swim at the beach in front of house" deter you. It is a 4 minute golf car ride to a perfect place for ages 8 to 75 to swim. The people: Zaida who runs the housekeeping and cooks breakfast...delightful and happy! Harvey who takes care of outside and pool...charming and great with the whole family. The chef, Patricia, you will NOT be disappointed, amazing...her tamales, wrapped in banana leafs, A+; her Columbian dishes, A+, her salads each day, A+....let's just say we all, 16 of us, were impressed and loved having her and her "helpers/family" around each day...lunch and dinner!! Costa Ricans are a happy group and Casa de Luz has the happiest and nicest you can find!! When I say that Aly planned our trip, arranged all our transportation and followed up to make sure all was terrific, I say it with respect and gratitude. If you are wondering where to stay...THIS IS THE PLACE!! Book it today....

Perfect vacation home
We had 9 adults and 5 children on our trip. Aly with Casa de Luz went above and beyond to make our trip perfect. We had golf carts waiting for us and she helped set up numerous transportation including airport transfers. The housekeepers were incredible. They did our laundry and towels every day. The house layout was perfect and we had rooms to spare . Some of the best sunsets are right on the beach at this house . Tamarindo is a short 2-3 minute golf cart ride away. Great location and outstanding service. We will come back

Breathtaking property and views
Perfect property to call home for a vacation when with friends and family! Our group of 6 were completely shocked at just how nice, practical, and beautiful the interior of the house was. The communication with Aly was second to none, and she always replied in an extremely timely manner. The backyard...breathtaking. Its all setup so wonderfully! The backyard to the backyard is the beautiful beach! Nothing could be better. Its also located in a nicely tucked away area, which we all enjoyed! A++ stay!

Our group had an incredible time staying at this house in Tamarindo! Believe it or not, the house was even more stunning in person compared to how great it looks in the pictures. All of house staff were super respectful, thoughtful and polite. It was also super clutch to have such a responsive and informative concierge to set up so many fun activities around the city. Highly recommend zip-lining, ATVs and the party catamaran. The house is also incredibly spacious and not once did we ever feel crowded or on top of each other. Highly recommend for any group looking for a great private getaway in Costa!

Great house for my group, everyone loved the pool and the location was awesome right on the beach.
If you have enough people for every single bed just know that not everyone will have a comfortable bed, just a bed in general.

Casa De Luz - Fantastic!!!
Casa De Luz is impeccable! The house itself is super spacious, with great separation between rooms. Furnishings and decor are super tasteful / elegant, and amenities abound. The pool area and access to beach are fantastic - incredible sunset views every night. At low tide, the tide pools out front are some of the best I've seen for chilling out and exploring. The support staff quietly attends to the house and guests where needed. Just a well run operation. If you are a surfer, the river mouth break and beach break just down the beach are excellent. At higher tides, you can surf out from past the reef. We are trying to figure out when we are coming back!!!

Primeramente a los interesados en alquilar esta propiedad leer todo, absolutamente todo antes de hacer el booking, si no lo hacen pasaran un mal rato con los administradores en pagos extras y requisitos por garantias.
Si tienen mascotas piensen que tendran que pagar extra en limpieza.
Si es un poco estresante saber que hay arte valioso en toda la propiedad y que se venden, asi que andar con todo el cuidado. Gracias a Dios aunque estuve con 2 bebes y una perrita pequeña no hubo ningún incidente.
A pesar de esto, el lugar es agradable, el personal de limpieza super amigables, la ubicacion es excelente. Muy privado y era lo que buscaba. Agradezco a Aly por permitirnos un late check out por la situacion en cierres de las carreteras por manifestaciones, fue muy considerado de su parte.
Mi familia quedo enamorada de este lugar y en definitiva volveremos si nos lo permiten. Agradezco nuevamente a Zaida y Harvy por el excelente servicio de limpieza y mantenimiento, super atentos.

Hola Elizabeth,
Estoy muy feliz de que haya disfrutado del lugar y también de los servicios del personal de Casa de Luz. En efecto, el arte fue cuidadosamente seleccionado y la casa decorada con estilo para complacer mejor a nuestros huéspedes y permitirles disfrutar de vacaciones en lujo. Siempre recomendamos a nuestros clientes que lean todas nuestras políticas antes de realizar la reserva, ya que cobramos una tarifa de limpieza adicional para mantener la propiedad en perfectas condiciones después de la visita de una mascota. Será un placer volver a recibir a su familia y esperamos su próxima visita.

La casa es sumamente hermosa y amplia, todas las personas disfrutamos nuestra estancia. Al momento de ingresar estaba completamente limpia, al igual que la piscina y las áreas subyacentes. Al ser una residencia completamente aislada, puedes convivir con tu grupo de acompañantes sin temor a contagiarte del Covid. La casa cuenta con salas y comedores amplios al igual que la cocina.
El personal de limpieza se presentó cada día utilizando mascarillas y guantes para seguridad de todo el grupo de acompañantes.
Recomiendo la casa para una convivencia entre familiares cercanos que desean un poco de relax en estos tiempos o que deseen realizar alguna celebración.

Amazing house
This house was amazing! We stayed here in March 2020 for spring break. There were 4 families (7 adults, 8 teenage kids) and it was perfect. There were so many places to hang out that we were never on top of each other. The house was beautiful and so clean... the ladies that came every morning cooked us fantastic breakfasts and managed to clean and wash towels without ever getting in anyone's way. The pool, beach and sunsets are as spectacular as every review and the house description say they are. This house is a rare find... we searched a long time for a home that would accommodate our group, was near Tamarindo, and was on the beach with a pool. Playa Langosta was the perfect town to stay in... it is so peaceful and safe, yet is a golf cart ride away from all the action in Tamarindo. And lastly, Aly was the most incredible concierge. She lined up our golf cart rental, dinner reservations, a private cook for an evening, and so much more. She was the key to a stress free vacation for us, since nobody in our group spoke Spanish. Thank you, Aly! We hope to be back soon!

Amazing house. Top level service!
Simply amazing! The spectacular beachfront house makes you want to spend the whole day there. Luckily, Aly the concierge kept us informed since the weeks prior to our arrival, about the many activities available around the area. She booked us an amazing catamaran afternoon, which the whole party loved. Weeks before our arrival, Aly was already suggesting the best plans for our group, asking about arrivals in case they needed to coordinate transportation directly from the airport, etc. We got to the house a few hours before official check-in time; however, Aly was able to let us in so we could settle in. She was worried that the house was not going to be perfectly clean as they normally are when parties check in; however, she always provided us with amazing flexibility which made our stay much easier all around. The rooms, beddings, and house areas in general are very ample, comfortable, and the pool area is simply stunning. It doesn't matter where you've been around the world, you'll find this house stunning. We were 15 people and our stay was extremely comfortable, we could have easily been 20+ comfortably. Harvy the caretaker was always looking to help in anything we needed, and the lady that cooked us breakfast everyday was excellent. She cooked us amazing breakfasts and cleaned the house for the first half of the day. All around an amazing experience. Will be back for sure! Thank you Aly for your AMAZING commitment to providing the best service. See you soon!

Year two at Casa de Luz- feels like home!
We have stayed here two years in a row and have loved it both times. Just a perfect location and beautiful home. Aly is always quick to respond to questions or issues (minor, to say the least) and the staff on site take excellent care of the property. Hope to return many more times to Casa de Luz and the Tamarindo/Playa Langosta area. I consider it my home away from home.

All around EXCELLENT place. Gorgeous location right on the beach, beautiful beach house with so much space, gorgeous "beachy" decor, just an all around lovely spot to be in. Our concierge was over the top helpful with anything we asked - super responsive and great to work with. We lounged by the pool, cooked meals at night, and walked down the beach. Perfect for large families, but also for smaller ones. The kitchen was a dream to cook in. Go and enjoy it to the fullest!

Hi Caroline! Thank you for choosing to stay here at Casa de Luz, and for your wonderful review! I’m so happy you enjoyed walking the beautiful beach (that is also so nice to gaze out at from the infinity pool!) and the comfortable “beachy” vibe of the villa! The large kitchen is ideal to accommodate chefs cooking for bigger groups, but also so nice to have had to yourselves for your small family to enjoy cooking together and sampling local foods at your leisure! I hope to welcome you back to Casa de Luz soon! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

Hope to return many more times to Casa de Luz and the Tamarindo/Playa Langosta area. I consider it my home away from home. The Stay in Tamarindo crew are attentive to every need you have... from excursions to transportation. I can't imagine their service or product being any better than it is. I plan to return year after year and will look forward to working with all of the Stay in Tamarindo crew.

My favorite home away from home!
We have stayed at Casa de Luz two years in a row and have loved it both times. Just a perfect location and beautiful home. Aly is always quick to respond to questions or issues (minor, to say the least) and the staff on site take excellent care of the property. Hope to return many more times to Casa de Luz and the Tamarindo/Playa Langosta area. I consider it my home away from home.

Great House! Great Location! Better in Person!
The house is amazing, works perfect for a large family gathering like we had for the holidays! I’d also so the house is nicer in person than the photos show. Aly The host is absolutely amazing, she is great! Perfect English and Spanish and very professional. She managed everything for and helped us with everything we needed. Could not have a better vacation, would go back in a minute! The Cook Option is a must, Patricia was great and the food she prepared was awesome. The house has a large variety of rooms for a big group, I love the master suite and the pool house personally! The location is perfect as well, in close proximity to everything you need and all the activities. We loved the horseback riding on the beach! Can’t wait to go back next year! Thank You Aly!

Hi Dewey! Thank you so much for your review! Casa de Luz is such a great versatile space for large families like yours all coming together for a special occasion or holidays! It was a pleasure to host you all! And I’m thrilled you all enjoyed the horseback riding at sunset, and my recommendation to use Cook Patricia (she’s an amazing local cook - and I knew that’s exactly what your family wanted to experience)! I look forward to having you back again next year! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

Simple Wonderful
We were so excited for our visit to Casa de Luz, but we were more than excited when we actually arrived. This home is stunning and very comfortable. We are grateful that we were able to spend 4 nights here and we really did not go anywhere or do anything other than eat, relax, swim and rest. We live in Costa Rica, and sometimes we just need a break from home and all of the things that go with living here full time. Casa de Luz was the perfect getaway.

Family and Friends Make Memories
We found the perfect property for all 17 of us, and the most interesting and enjoyable space to have fun, play board games, investigate new places and activities. Aly was so very helpful with scheduling all of our excursions - loved the ziplining and ATVs, catamaran sunset cruise and horseback riding. Patricia, our cook, was FANTASTIC! Thank you for helping us make so many great memories.

Hi Cathy! I’m so happy you and your family enjoyed their stay at Casa de Luz! We love being so close to town and it’s lively beach and shopping/restaurant scene, but happy to be just far enough down the road here in Langosta to feel nestled away in our own lush more tranquil setting! Glad you indulged in Cook Patricia’s phenomenal meals and enjoyed some of the activities I suggested; we are so lucky to have many fun excursion options close by! Hope you will be back again next year, looking forward to it! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

Casa de Luz is by far one of the best vacation rentals I have stay in. The house was exactly as described. It is the perfect distance from town and was perfect for the reunion we held at the house. We took advantage of the full 23 person accommodations and everyone felt comfortable. The only thing better than the house was the service and attention to detail. Aly, our concierge for the weekend, made sure everything during our stay went perfectly. The trip would not have been the same without her help. She organized a boat trip, golf carts, and a chef for the weekend (all of which I would highly recommend). Lastly, the staff at the house was attentive and considerate. I would definitely book this house again and plan on doing so on my next trip to CR! Pura Vida!

Casa de Luz is a nice spacious home, and I know you appreciated all being under one roof, enjoying relaxing and having all your meals altogether cooked by our wonderful chef! The house staff and I try to make every guest’s stay special, and our visitors feel well cared for; we go to great lengths to make you feel at ease, and to make sure all your vacation plans run smoothly, so I’m happy to hear we were successful in making this trip effortless for you!

This is an amazing home with beautiful finishes, nice furniture and outstanding views. The pool is really nice too and beach access is just steps away. It is close to the town of Tamarindo and to Playa Langosta - just a few minutes by car. It was also nice to have housekeeping come in to clean / do laundry and have the grounds keeper maintain the pool area every day. Overall our family had a great time and enjoyed our stay at Casa de Luz in Tamarindo!

Dear Beth, we are so happy your family and friends enjoyed the stay at Casa de Luz, and found the home well-appointed and the grounds well-kept. I will be sure to share your complements with the daily full-time Caretaker and Housekeeper!

Aly and the staff was extremely friendly and so accomodating to all of our requests.

Dear Andrea, it was such a pleasure to meet and greet your family and friends at Casa de Luz!

Perfect Getaway for a large group!
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We recently stayed at the Case de Luz for a week long stay with two other families. Being our first time in the country, we knew very little about what to do, where to go or what to expect. First off, the pictures don’t do this home justice... it’s very spacious and a great layout for 3-4 families! Plenty of room for kids and for adults, as well as great spaces for everyone to be together. The beach access gave us amazing walks in the morning, exploring tide pools in the afternoon, and front row seats every night to gorgeous sunsets. The location itself, being just less than a mile from Tamarindo in Langoste was perfect... just far enough away from center of town to feel away from it all, but close enough for quick trips in and out. However, the best feature of the home is Aly, their dedicated concierge. She was instrumental with every aspect of our trip... setting up in-home chef, arranging for all transportation, ensuring we made reservations for different activities well in advance, and just giving us a sense of comfort before ever setting foot in their wonderful country. She was extremely easy to work with, attentive to every detail, and patient with our 1,000 questions. Highly, Highly Recommend this home for your visit.

Brandon, it was such a pleasure to welcome you and yours to Costa Rica and Casa de Luz! My favorite part of my job as the home’s Concierge, is being able to share the knowledge I’ve gained, and to help others experience the best of what this wonderful country has to offer! There is so much info available when researching Costa Rica, so it is always nice when I can help guests seek out experiences that are more unique and well tailored to their group! I’m so glad I was able to answer your questions about the home and travel to make you feel so comfortable before even arriving! I hope you’ll be back to Casa de Luz soon for a return visit!

Great house for a large group
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Casa de Luz was the perfect house for me and nine of my friends to celebrate our birthdays. The house was spacious enough for everyone to have their own room, but small enough so everyone still felt part of the group where ever they were in the house. The shining star with this house is definitely the pool and the access to the water. We literally spent every day in that beautiful backyard. And there was so much wildlife we got to see from the comfort of our own pool! Iguanas, howler monkeys, and the occasional raccoon and skunk all made their way through the backyard at one point or another. The house staff were so kind and attentive. Aly, the house concierge, was amazing and so helpful while planning this getaway. She has great recommendations for excursions and restaurants, and never let us down. I highly recommend booking Patricia, the cook, for a few meals. She makes plenty of food for leftovers, and we were always stuffed to the brim with her delicious meals - my personal favorite was her ceviche. If I had any “complaints” it would be that they were doing some work on the house while we were there and we had what seemed like a lot of workers coming in and out of the property. Also, I was a little disappointed to find out that the house didn’t come with pool toys. Luckily the party before us left a couple we got to use. All that being said, this vacation was such an amazing trip, none of us wanted to go home. I will definitely be back to Costa Rica, and if possible would love to stay at Casa de Luz again.
Nicole S. - Posted: 3/13/2019
Dear Nicole, thank you so much for your review! Great to hear you loved your stay so much you didn’t want to go home (perhaps more of your friends will now want to also celebrate their birthdays here!)! It is the perfect setup for a group of friends (or family) to be all together under one roof, but with space and privacy! Thank you for bearing with us while a few workers were around installing a new keypad; the house now has fully ‘keyless entry’ (it is so convenient to just have an entry code instead of carrying house keys around)! I hope you’ll be back soon for more of Cook Patricia’s delicious meals! Looking forward to your return! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

Do the ATV ride and check out the backroads.

Casa de Luz was absolutely amazing and everything I could've ever hoped for. We chose this house after weeks of research and it did not disappoint. We had a wedding party of 22 guests and we never felt crowded, in fact, much of the time you wondered where all the other people were, that's how big this place is and the design/floor plan is genius. The house itself is just as luxurious as it appears in the pictures and all the host and staff were absolutely professional and so helpful. As a fellow Airbnb host in CR, I can attest that if you're looking for a massive house in CR for a big group, this is the place! Muchas gracias y pura vida!

Coming from someone as yourself who is also an Airbnb host (and knowing that we all strive to create the best guest experiences) we truly appreciate your excellent comments and feedback. I am so happy you found Casa de Luz’s floor-plan genius (past guests have also commented on loving the high ceilings, grandness of the main living room, and the 2 large stairwells)!

The monkeys and iguanas were right in our backyard, there was even a Bengal cat and a raccoon we made friends with. My fiance and I took 3 other families for a total of 14 people - 6 children ranging from 5 to 10 years old. There was more Than enough room for us all. The concier, Aly was wonderful at booking excursions answering questions and keeoing us up-to-date on things we should know. The chefs were amazing if you're a big family/group, this is an absolute must(it's worth the extra cost)! They made delicious food and cleaned everything up afterwards. The maid was wonderful too - she actually did our laundry, it was magical. The beach was a short walk to get to the soft sand where we could surf and boogie board and the town is rigbt there for shopping and resturants.. We absolutely will return to costa rica. The people were all kind and generous. The jungle cruz and the sailing excursions were a fabulous way to see and explore. More of costa rica..

Hi Janelle! We are so lucky to be so close with nature and have monkeys and iguanas right in our backyard here at Casa de Luz! But I didn’t know we had a cat though, that’s news! Getting out on a boat and seeing our beautiful coastline from the ocean is definitely something I always recommend here on the ‘Gold Coast’ to see how pristine and natural and uninhabited it is (well worthy of the nickname); I’m so happy all the kids and your friends enjoyed the private sailing charter (it is one of the most highly sought after boats here and I’m sure the awesome captain had many sea faring stories to share)! I hope to welcome you back here one day soon, until next time, Pura Vida! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

This is such a huge, beautiful house that has everything you'd need to enjoy time with a big group. It has four master bedrooms and another room with 4 single beds, plus two private sleeping structures. The pool was perfect.

Great house, great location and great for groups
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We rented Casa de Luz for my 50th birthday party. We were originally scheduled to go to the Virgin Islands but mother nature cancelled those plans with back to back hurricanes which left us scrambling for a plan B. Everyone we dealt with from the booking representative Kate to Aly the concierge was great. They definitely turned "plan B" into "plan A+". The house is in a great location as it is far enough from the main town to afford some privacy but close enough to walk or take a cab for $5. The beach was fascinating. With the rock formations and tidal pools created at low tide, there was something new to see every day and the sunsets were gorgeous. The house itself offers privacy to everyone while at the same time providing lots of opportunity for group activities. There were six couples and we were very comfortable. The pool was a big hit with everyone and was big enough for everyone without feeling crowded. Cook Patricia was amazing. She cooked breakfast for us most days and did two of the best dinners we had. So yummy! Aly was also great in helping arrange transportation, adventure tours and dinner reservations. She also did a great job in helping set up a DJ at the house for our birthday party. What a fun and memorable evening. Overall, great experience and we can't wait to go back.

Amazing Getaway!!!
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Casa de Luz was a perfect fit for our family of 23. We went in July 2017 for a family reunion and our wedding. Casa de Luz was comfortable and an AWESOME location for our wedding (in the back "yard" on the beach). It was phenomenal - the entire experience. Aly the concierge was top notch and helped fit the perfect adventures for our family - ATV, catamaran cruise, river tour, surfing. Great location > walking distance to town (12-15min) and an easy drive. We felt safe and secure and there was PLENTY to do. Mornings and evenings were wonderful and the pool was the perfect amenity. Staff clean inside and out daily. Highly recommend!!!

Dear Marlie, congratulations again on your beautiful wedding. And thank you so much for your review, I am so happy you enjoyed the excursions I recommended and that they were suitable for your group! A private Concierge can certainly facilitate things and make the planning process easier, so we are pleased to include this complementary service at Casa de Luz! Hope to welcome you back here again soon! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

This is an awesome beachfront house..
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a large group coming to Costa Rica for the first time - 18 in all with 2 of them babies. The layout of the house worked very well for our group, giving everyone enough privacy, bedspace and bathrooms to keep everyone happy. The house itself is gorgeous with a very open floor plan - lots of community space for a large group. It is right on the beach and you can sit in the infinity pool and watch the sunset over the ocean! The house has an electronic front gate and a security system as well. The house also comes with a housekeeper and caretaker - both always seemed to work in the background - never in the way but their work was evident. We had lots of small geckos and crabs visiting the grounds, and Howler Monkeys were in the trees across the street every morning and evening. They make some unusual sounds that you get used to pretty quickly - they never bothered us. Also, Stay In Tamarindo had a concierge that works with the property. Ally contacted me right after booking and she was very helpful as we completed planning for the trip. She helped with airline transfers (from Liberia), rental cars, and also help schedule a cook for us (Cook Patricia). For this many people for the week, a cook is the only way to go and Patrica was fantastic. She cooked breakfast and dinner for us everyday and every meal drew great praise. This was a fantastic vacation home.

A absolutely beautiful place to have our wedding!!
Casa de Luz far exceeded my expectations! We rented the property for the family to stay at and to hold our wedding at. The beach was perfect for the ceremony, and the pool deck was fantastic for the reception! We had 40 guests and there was ample space for everyone that evening. I particularly enjoyed that the pool is not chlorine but ozanation making the water more gentle on sensitive skin. All and all if i ever have a need for a large casa again we will be back to Casa de Luz for sure! Not to mention that Aly was fantastic and extremely helpful with anything I needed as a nervous bride with last minute needs and guestions.
Amber M. - Posted: 4/24/2017
Hi Amber! The pool treatment with Ozone instead of Chlorine IS incredible (it leaves your skin so soft, even after swimming for hours)... this is the 'cherry on the cake' at Casa de Luz! The Estate and its grounds are perfect for events; it's so nice that you had your wedding right on the premises, with your close family staying at the home with you! It was my absolute pleasure to answer all your questions, and I look forward to your return visit! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

Very Nice Villa on Playa Langosta
The house and the location were beautiful. The pool and the private beach area were absolutely perfect. I loved being able to wake up and take my coffee to the beach without ever having to leave the property. Langosta is also far enough from town that it is peaceful and quiet. It was a bit too far to walk conveniently, so we rented a golf cart which was great. Our concierge was named Aly and she was awesome. So helpful!! We were in Tamarindo for our wedding and she helped with coordinating travel for a guests and so much more. Loved her! The only downside is that there were some maintenance issues while we were there. They weren't huge problems, but at this price point, I expect everything to be working properly. The gate was broken which made me a little uncomfortable as far a safety goes. We ended up not having anyone stay in the casita in the courtyard because of that. Other houses on this street have actual security guards outside the gate and our gate wasn't even closed... We had no problems, it just didn't make me feel good. Also we had a sprinkler issue or something that required turning the water to the pool house off until it was resolved. It was fixed quickly, so not a big deal. Overall, I loved my stay here and I would definitely recommend it!
Brittany B. - Posted: 4/11/2017
Hi Brittany! How wonderful that you enjoyed the serenity and tranquillity of the chairs in your Langosta beach backyard during your morning coffee, what a great way to start the day! It was a pleasure to assist with arranging transportation for the various arrivals and departures of your party, as Concierge I'm always here to help! I know it it is hard work and you were very brave planning travel for a large group! I'm happy the water issue you experienced was resolved quickly (having a full-time caretaker on the grounds at Casa de Luz is key) and the gate has now also been repaired (as we had to wait for a part). I look forward to welcoming you back here one day (perhaps an anniversary trip)! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

Amazing family stay with group
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I came for my 40th birthday with 20 people - 11 adults and 9 kids. It was so perfect because we each had our own bedroom with full bathroom. Everything in this house is well thought out and in superb condition. We had been traveling prior and it was so refreshing and relaxing to come here and have it all taken care of. The housekeeping service daily was fantastic! We even hired a cook to come for breakfast and dinner which made it easier to relax and not worry about cooking and cleaning. The excursions booked by Aly were perfect and we ended with couples massages at the house overlooking the beach. I would love to come back one day. I cannot think of one flaw with this house and service. Oh and it's not mentioned much but the snorkeling right outside is the best in Tamarindo. When the tide is low, we went out with the kids and could touch so it made it easy to teach them how to snorkel. We saw a variety of fish, eels and octopus.

Hi Rachel, Thank you for your compliments on the house and services, we strive to keep everything in perfect condition and easy for our wonderful guests!

Fantastic stay and perfect location!
I've been traveling down to CR for several years and this is one of the best villas we've rented. Its far enough from town to have some peace and quiet, but close enough that it wasn't a chore to venture in. I recommend it for anyone! During low tide, you can even stroll into town via the beach, but I'm certain its impossible during high tide. The grounds were clean and safe and we had no issues at all. The gate to the property locks at night and the car and personal items in the house were of no concern. The beach was pristine and the sunsets were perfectly amazing. We received the chef service for two meals each day and they were great! They even accommodated for the food allergies! (Celiacs take note) For our dinners in town, Aly took care of us with recommendations and we found those restaurants superb. It was a great visit and I will consider another trip in the future.

Beautiful house. Hated to leave.
My Wife and I took the whole family to Casa De Luz in Dec 2016 (15 total people). The house accommodated us nicely. The property was very well maintained (only minor issue was hot water did not work in the Casita but not a big deal as there were plenty of showers in the main house). The onsite staff did a nice job but does not speak English and they keep a low profile. When you needed to you can communicate with them fine. The cook Patricia was excellent and every meal was enjoyed by all, even by the finicky eaters. She prepared two breakfast' and 5 dinners. All were excellent. And finally, Aly was a great Concierge to deal with. She arranged excursions, dinner reservations (2 nights), and all transportation for excursions and airport transfers. She also arranged a rental car that was dropped off and picked up at the house which was very convenient. Aly recommended a private 52' Sail Boat Sunset cruise which was the highlight of the trip. The crew on the boat were exceptional and the boat itself is in great shape. Highly recommended! Actually for large groups I recommend this house as you will not be disappointed.
Terrence K. - Posted: 1/5/2017
I'm so happy you all enjoyed the Sailboat as much as I do, what a lovely way to end the year on Dec 31st followed by a wonderful meal by Cook Patricia. You did it right! Hope to see you back here soon! Saludos, Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

Family Vacation with 15 people
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My wife and I took her entire family to Tamarindo over New Years. The house was great and plenty of room. It is not on a sandy beach but rather volcanic rock. There are many tide pools during low tide to explore and the kids loved it. The staff at the house was exceptional. we hired in Patricia to cook 2 breakfast's and dinners and all were excellent! Aly was a great help setting everything up from Patricia to excursions and everything in between. we had 15 people and were comfortable. It states it can sleep 23 but that would be tight. For a large group I would recommend this property.

Great Golf Trip...
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Dear all, I wanted to take a few minutes to write to you about how great our trip was. All together we had a great experience and felt like we were VIP´s in every aspect of our stay. Diego and Patricia are a great couple full of desire to work. They pampered us to the max, cooked 2 incredible meals and even went to the store for some supplies. At the end of the second night we called them and applauded them for their attentions and gave them a $200 tip. They are a super added value to the experience. Both masseuses were also great. We had in the end 6 massages and the setting was incredible next to the pool with the sounds of the Ocean in the background. Zaida was also great. Some of the guys left their used clothes on their bed and when they came back they were washed and folded. We didn't expect that level. We gave Zaida $100, please let me know if this was ok or if more is required as I forgot if there was an extra charge for that service. Edwin was great on our transfers to 4 seasons and was very informative. The house itself was very convenient and private and the property management app was impressive. We had a great time. Thank you again Erin for all your efforts in finding the perfect house for our golf group and Aly and Gilda for all the logistics and services. We definitely will repeat very soon... Thanks to all. You have a well oiled team... Best regards

Amazing place for a our group of 3 families
We had a great time together. The house was big enough that three families could each have their side of the house and come together for meals, play, and activities. Aly, the concierge, was available all the time and did wonders on short notice to get us scheduled for activities and to remedy any small issues with the house. She also met us right at the house and gave a quick intro. The place is amazing. It has chairs right on the beach which have been great to just relax and enjoy the quiet in the morning and the sunset in the evening. There is a nice bed & breakfast next door that we have used three times for breakfast when we had a slow start to the day. I would definitely recommend staying here and would love to come back again.

The property was so beautiful--the pictures are accurate. The weather, even though it was supposed to be the rainy season--was perfect. Our concierge, Aly, was so accommodating and professional. Her advice for excursions, spa treatments, etc was so helpful. The people that cleaned the house and the pool area every day were fantastic--you didn't even know they were in the house. And we never did figure out how she knew what clothes went in what room--but she did overtime. Patricia, her husband and son fixed some fantastic dinners for us and were so pleasant. All in all, I couldn't find one possible complaint. Can't wait to go back!

Hi Don, it was wonderful to meet you and your family, and it was lovely to hear that they all voted on Costa Rica as their dream destination for this trip! Of course, if you had let us plan your trip arrangements; ground transportation etc, everything would have been seamless; we would have known exactly what time you were scheduled to arrive at the home, and not kept you waiting at all (the car rental car quotes would also have been accurate, unlike what you experienced booking with another agency). I was thrilled to hear that the White Water Rafting and Ziplining were a huge success with all 4 generations of your group, and I commend you for taking on such organization of a big trip for your entire family! I look forward to welcoming you back here one day (as I know no one wanted to leave :) Take good care, and I look forward to seeing you next time! Pura Vida! Aly

I arrived to Tamarindo and the house I had previously booked was not safe or clean and I needed to find another home immediately. I found this home hosted by Lucas and send him a request at 10:00 PM. The next morning he called and arranged to pick up my family at 11:00 am and allowed us to check in 4 hours early. He was so helpful and accommodating. I can't thank him enough. His responsiveness helped make a bad situation easier! Thank you Lucas!!

She was always available and helped with everything that we needed from dinner recommendations to arranging for zip lining, fishing, etc. She certainly knows her way around Tamarindo! I have to say that the description of the house does not make it justice. It is so much more amazing than we were expecting! We had a group of 19 and never felt cramped. The location, decor, amenities , etc were all top notch. Cesar and Zaida, the house staff, were there every day to keep the place spotless and to help with anything we needed. Truly amazing people. The only problem is that we didn't want to leave!! We will definitely find our way back there in the future.

Wonderful Beachfront Home - great for kids!
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We celebrated a bunch of 40 year old birthdays by renting this beautiful oceanfront home for five families. The home was wonderfully spacious, the pool was amazing and the rocky oceanfront provided hours of tide-pool viewing and snorkeling fun. We had a group of 10 adults and 10 kids, 4 of which were under 1 year old. The house worked perfectly for us. The bigger kids all enjoyed sleeping in the bunk room (which sleeps 6 kids comfortably). Aly, the house manager, was quick to respond to our questions and needs. She even lent us her DVD player as the one at the house was being replaced. The short drive to town was convenient for when we wanted to go get ice cream and swim at beautiful sandy beach. The walk to the sandy beach was about 20 min but was a very easy walk along the ocean. I highly recommend Casa de Luz. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Best Family Vacation Ever
We booked Casa de Luz with 4 families for spring break and it was amazing. Adults and kids ages 6 - 14, all had the time of their life! The house was amazing (the pictures don't even do it justice), the concierge really helped to organize and book great activities and restaurants! Our whole party learned to surf, loved walking on the beach in front of the house and watching sunset, enjoyed swimming in the pool from morning till night, and just hung out with friends. It was a great combination of adventure and relaxation. We will definitely be back!
Lainie S. - Posted: 4/12/2016
Hi Lainie, thank you for your wonderful comments! I'm happy you all enjoyed surfing, it is a must to take some lessons when there are such great surf breaks for learning, so close to the house!

Can't say enough about Casa De Luz. Had a chauffer/concierge waiting for us at the airport. The house was in excellent shape. The house service was exceptional. Fridge was stocked and we had private chef service a few nights. Beautiful view of the pacific ocean made for a spectacular sunset. I can't say enough about Edwin. He was outstanding!!! Anytime we needed ANYTHING, he always answered the phone and was there to help the group. He brought us to a couple excursions and was very knowledgeable about the country side and the area. The excursions were a blast. All of this was booked by Aly and her group! I would recommend this to anyone. Jared

Comfort, Elegance and Service
Walking into Casa De Luz we were greeted by Ally, our concierge. She arranged our travel from the airport, had the fridge stocked with items for a late arrival snack and took the time to show us the house, all that was available and stay longer to help us plan our stay. She recommended and arranged tours that suited our group perfectly. Case De Luz is elegant comfort. All of the rooms are spacious, elegant comfort and quiet. We had beachfront view and a spectacular nightly sunset. You could take a 15 min walk into town along the beach playing tag with the waves. Nightly swims in the pool after dinner either at home or in one of the local restaurants. Daily housekeeping and groundskeeper service allowing you to feel like you were on vacation at your own home. Casa De Luz, Ally and the team exceeded my expectations.

The best family vacation ever!
We just returned from the most spectacular week at Case De Luz. My husband and myself took our 5 children(ages 19-26) and a friend and significant others(10 people total). The week was nothing short of magnificent! The house was everything we hoped, beautiful, clean, comfortable and roomy, with enough space for everyone plus plenty of indoor and outdoor relaxing space. Included was a housekeeper who came daily to clean and exchange towels etc. the pool was beautiful, we brought down rafts and tubes and thoroughly enjoyed using them in the pool and ocean(and left them for others to enjoy after we left. The beach, although rocky was still great to swim and use the boogie boards...water shoes are a must though at the house, while the Tamarindo beach is rock free! Aly, the fabulous concierge that I emailed for months to help plan all the perfect activities for us all to enjoy. I can't say enough about her knowledge and professionalism. She was a pleasure to work with and made sure we had everything we needed including stocking the house with food prior to our arrival, restaurant recommendations and the best activities with the best companies in Tamarindo. We were smart enough to have Patricia and her wonderful husband Diego cook for us 6 out of the 7 nights and breakfast on our departing day. The best decision we made(besides picking this house!)The food was fabulous, we all ate like kings! They will take allergies, likes, dislikes etc. into consideration but it was easy since we all eat everything, but options were made for 2 with lactose intolerance. They were a pleasure to have in the house and we not only loved the food but they were very lovely and professional. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Best family vacation ever. Can't rave enough about everything!!!

Great mix of location, service, beauty and comfort
This was my 2nd stay at Casa De Luz. I find this house to be a great blend of the service that you would expect at a 4 star hotel and the comfort of being in your place. First the location is fantastic. It’s on the beach. The view from the pool can’t be beat. At the end of the day I would often just spend an hour or more hanging out in the pool looking at the beach as the sun sets. You can walk to town along the beach, never even stepping on a road. To be fair, to comfortably go swimming you do have to walk ~10min in either direction from the house. I like to run and I could do beach runs in either direction. Running south and crossing the river I had twice had a stretch of beach all to myself as far as I could see. One thing that really made staying at the house great was Aly, the concierge. Not only could she recommend the best tours but she made sure you got the best guides on the best tours. She arranged for tour pickups, rental car drop offs etc at the house. If anything isn’t going right she follows through to straightens it out. For food we used all the options, we did cooking ourselves several nights, had a chef come in and cook for us another night, had food delivered from the local restaurants and of course went into Tamarindo for several delicious dinners at restaurants she recommended. We also went next door for tasty and relaxed breakfast at the Sueño del Mar B&B. This last time I stayed in the pool casita. The bed faces the ocean through a large glass doors and you could hear the waves breaking as you went to sleep. Couldn’t think of a more ideal place. Between the concierge, pool, optional cook, along with the daily maid service, we had all the services you would get at hotel and with all the comfort and space of being in your own house on the beach. Just loved it.

Amazing Tamarindo Property!
We stayed at this magical property in early June 2015 with the family and WOW - what a great, relaxing and memorable time we had! From the moment we arrived we were so happy to have landed our sandle-clad feet in this place. There's no detail left out - from the very well stocked kitchen, the cleaning service that came every day and helped with our every need (without even asking!), and amenities that make us melt with joy. Small example: You connect your iPod to the main receiver and pipe the music throughout the entire property - each zone having independent sound levels. There's tons of separate spaces here and there to gather - a small group might sit around the outside tiki bar chatting it up over home-made margharitas while another sits under the porch in the very comfortable couches. The pool area is another and we utilized it between the times we were playing in the ocean not far away. We splurged one night and had their recommended personal chef make us an amazing dinner with Nicaragan filet, grilled prawns and several amazing sides which all worked together - and ended up being one of the best meals we had during our 10 day Costa Rica trip. Another bonus for us was the B&B right next door which shares the same beach area - just walk through the gate to the beach, take a right turn and you're on the very quaint and very well kept property that servers the best breakfast in all of Tamarindo - hands down - and super friendly to boot. All in all and without a doubt - the nicest property I've ever rented and look forward to a return trip!

Spacious and ideally located property
This spacious villa had more than enough space for our ten guests, affording privacy for the four adults and ample room to romp for the 6 kiddos. The beach access allowed for many pleasant walks along the shore and all the way into town. Aly the concierge was always available, and set us up for the very best activities in the vicinity. Daily housekeeping was exceptional, even did our laundry daily as well. Added bonus? Dozens of howler monkeys reside in the trees around the home. We would definitely stay here again.

An unreal week in Tamarindo
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our week at Casa De Luz could not have been better. We had two families and 6 kids ages 6-11. There was more than enough to to do. The concierge Aly made everything easy and teed us up first class. Surfing was awesome. Zip lining was unreal. Palo Verde river was OK. Food and hospitality were abundant. This is a must visit.

Fantastic property and staff!
We loved our stay at Case de Luz! We were two families brought together to celebrate both of our sons senior year of high school spring break. We could not have asked for a better villa and location. I miss the sunsets and mornings spent in the chairs on the beach. I also miss Chef Patricia's wonderful meals!! I would highly recommend her services as she has talent. We cant wait to return and we are already checking schedules to figure out our next Tamarindo adventure.

FAMILY VACATION IN PARADISE
I cannot say enough about this property meeting & exceeding our expectations. We are a family of 9, consisting of grandchildren, 11 & 13, and our adult children. This house was perfect for all three generations. The location is far enough away from town to be peaceful, but close enough (5 min by car, 15-20 min walk) to take advantage of all the restaurants, grocery store & night life. The property provides lots of space for everyone. My hubby & I chose to stay in the detached casita by the pool area, where we could enjoy a little "quiet time" on the back patio, not to mention the private outdoor shower. We were there when it was exceptionally hot & found the air-conditioning & ceiling fans to provide a comfortable temp to sleep. However, most of our time was spent outdoors...either in the pool, sitting on the beach or up on the patio area off the main house. This house easily handled our family, but it should be noted that if you are planning on sharing with another family or two, not all 6 bedrooms are of equal size. There is the aforementioned casita, with its own kitchenette, sitting area & queen bed. There are 2 king & 2 queen suites in the main house that are very roomy & well appointed. The 6th room, however, is very small & located off the front courtyard. While it does have its own bathroom, it's really not suitable for a child, nor is it large enough for a couple. In addition to an amazing property, you get the services of the best concierge. Aly is the "go to" gal for everything you need to help make your vacation go smoothly ...and she does it all with a graciousness that makes you feel as if you've known her forever. Communication prior to our arrival was handled promptly & she was available via phone/text while we were in CR. The activities were great, but the highlight had to be the dinner prepared for us at the house by local chef, Patricia. In fact, we ended up requesting her for a 2nd night & were lucky enough that she was available. Such a treat to eat a delicious meal without leaving our home away from home. I'd also recommend the B&B next door for a wonderful breakfast. Just walk out to the beach & turn right. Can't wait to return to Costa Rica & will choose to stay at Casa de Luz again.
