We had so much fun at Casa de Luz! The house was clean and plenty of room for our group of 4 families. The location was great right on the beach, nice pool, good snorkeling out front, short walk to surfing. Rafa was great with helping us get golf carts, airport transfers, groceries, chef, excursions etc. I highly recommend renting this house for a fun and memorable vacation in beautiful Costa Rica!!

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.

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!

Our family stayed at Casa de Luz for a week in February and it could not have been better. The location, accommodations, and the services were perfect. We will be back. Pure Vida!

We had our entire extended family stay at Casa De Luz. It was a great experience. The staff were wonderful and the house was perfect for our big family. The beach and pool were amazing.

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.

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

A beautiful well-run home on the beach! This home is big enough to hold a large family with plenty of space for everyone. The care taker and cooks were fabulous. A wonderful place with plenty of activity and relaxing.
This is a fantastic property! Spacious, well appointed, beautifully decorated, excellent for a private get away. Beyond the pool is the pacific ocean only steps away. We were a group of 12 celebrating our friend's birthday and had a great time. Our concierge, chef, housekeeping staff were attentive, informative, and provided excellent service and recommendations. Our concierge secured three golf carts on our behalf for easy access to the town of Tamarindo and for getting to Langosta's beach club and local restaurants. All in all, Casa de Luz was a wonderful escape after a day on the beach or hiking in the mountains. I highly recommend this property.

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!
Over the top Gorgeous Property!
Fabulous property that is right off the beach. Wake up hearing the ocean, see magnificent sunsets right in front of you. Our group loved staying here. Our conceirge Rafa was more than helpful, he orchastrated so much for our stay. He organized all transportation for our group, from the airport, golf carts for our stay. Highly recommend Patricia the chef who cooked two meals for us including the mahi-mahi my son caught that day! We were lucky that she could come to us with such short notice. He helped us in so many ways, he really went up and beyond for our group. We also took two of their tours, a waterfall tour with Eddie as our guide, he was very knowledgable and warm. That tour and the Coffee/Chocolate and Sugarcane tour were great. Also a shout out to Revive Wellness Center who came to the Villa for massages! Excellent!! Casa de Luz was so gorgeous that I don't believe I will ever stay in such an amazing place. The bar is now so high! Thank you Stay in Tamarindo and Rafa! All true professionals!

Nos encantó la casa. Pasamos 3 noches 14 adultos y 3 niños. Súper buen servicio por parte de Adriana, Cris y todos los de la casa. Muchas gracias por hacer que nuestras vacaciones fueran lo mejor.
We were a group of 14 adults who wanted to spend some time in Tamarindo. We were very impressed at how well the property and the home has been maintained. It was huge, beautiful and very comfortable. The pool was just the right size. The house sits on the beach and even though you can’t swim in the sea because of the rocks, the beach was wonderful for sitting, relaxing and walks or runs in the morning and evening. We had housekeeping daily and the groundskeeper was available for any issues with the home. Tamarindo town was less than 5 minutes away by golf cart. The neighborhood was quiet which was wonderful. I don’t think any of us wanted to leave.if we could give it 10 out of 5 stars, we would. And last but not the least, Aly our concierge was wonderful to work with. She was available for questions via email and text any time if day and was very patient with our multiple changing requests. We highly recommend Casa De Luz. Pura Vida!

Casa de Luz review
The house was in the perfect location, right on the beautiful beach and a short trip to town. The house was huge, plenty of room for a group of 20, and very comfortable. Aly, the concierge, was amazing. She got us great deals on excursions and was very responsive. Housekeeping was great, they cleaned without us noticing they were there and washed and folded our clothes, and they were very nice. Harvey the groundskeeper was always there, cleaning the grounds and pool. They all made it feel like a 5 star resort. We loved our trip and would recommend it to anyone.

15 People in a house on vacation!!!
We checked in using a keypad system which made things great from the start as we could enter right away. Everything was clean, house was cool already with AC units on for us. House has an amazing view with a great pool. We had a total of 15 people (9 adults + 6 kids) and everyone had plenty of room. The concierge was amazing and always super helpful from getting cold carts to a personal chef. Will definitely keep this house on my list in future stays.

We had 3 families meet in Costa Rica to celebrate our graduating seniors. This house was the perfect size for everyone to spread out and come together comfortably in the common areas. What makes this property amazing is the concierge that helps you plan your trip and is available to answer questions and help you book activities the entire time you are there. With Covid restrictions, our concierge helped us easily get in and out of the country. And, the house staff are so helpful and friendly and put the trip over the top in terms of service. We would go back and stay here again, or for sure book a property through this agency. Excellent service!

Casa de Luz is a wonderful place to stay with friends and family. The accommodations are great and the setting is breath taking. I highly recommend that everybody put it on their bucket list!!
Thank you so much Casa De Luz and staff!! This was truly the best vacation I’ve ever been on. The people, the amenities, you guys went above and beyond. There is nothing I would change! You made it so we had nothing to worry about except for enjoying our time together. Thank you for your generosity and love. Pura Vida!

Absolutely phenomenal time staying here. I would suggest to anyone. Aly our concierge was amazing and helpful, the chefs were incredible and kind, everything was taken care of and help was given with any questions at all..... Blessed my family immensely. Will one day be back. God bless

Gorgeous home in a fantastic location! The best part about this home is that it faces 100% west - so the sunsets are SPECTACULAR! No need to go anywhere to watch the sunset - just grab a drink from the fridge and head to the pool or the chairs on the beach. So incredibly lucky to be able to stay in this unbelievable house!

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!!!

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!

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!

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. 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 Aly and all of the Stay in Tamarindo crew.

Our stay was wonderful! The house was beautiful and made our daughter's special day even more memorable. Aly was excellent with making sure every detail was in place. The staff at Casa de Luz did a great job as well.

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.
