Casa de Luz is an elegant beachfront mansion located on the stretch of Langosta Beach known as Millionaire Mile. 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. Casa de Luz, with its full-time staff, is able to welcome groups of 20 or more guests. Ample indoor and outdoor gathering spaces make Casa de Luz an excellent choice for your group event destination.

Inside the main house, a fully equipped kitchen and laundry provide all the comforts of home. The living room, dining area, and spacious ocean-view terrace combine to allow space for even large groups to spend quality time together. Each of the two floors of the home have a bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a bedroom with a king-sized bed. A bunk room ideal for the youngest travelers and a tv/entertainment room with convertible couches provide additional sleeping accommodations on the second floor. The courtyard casita on the front side of the property offers a full bed, full bath, and miniature kitchen. The courtyard casita on the beach side of the property is equipped with a full kitchen, small sitting area, and a queen-sized bed. All of Casa de Luz’s living spaces are air conditioned and are wi-fi connected. Depending on availability, the small 5-star boutique hotel next door is able to accommodate additional members of your party or participants in your event.

One of the things that makes Casa de Luz stand out among other vacation rental properties, besides its size, is its proximity to the beach. Literally steps from the beach gate, high-tide tide pools are teeming with fascinating marine life along a pristine stretch of sand. A quick walk down the beach to the south places anxious surfers in front world-class waves. Another thing that places Casa de Luz a cut above the rest is its commitment to respecting the environment. Casa de Luz is one of Tamarindo and Langosta’s only solar-powered homes, gathering energy to meet its needs with brand-new panels installed on the roof. All housekeeping and hygiene products present on the property are Costa Rica’s top-of-the line biodegradable options.

Casa de Luz, in addition to a full-time house keeper and grounds-keeper, offers a personal concierge who helps you get to know the property and can arrange the extras that make a vacation relaxing: a private chef, butler service, transportation, childcare, adventure and eco tours, and of course any type of even services that you may require.

Janelle H.
ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND Casa de la Cruz!! beautiful home right on the beach. Amazing views. 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

Hi Craig! I’m so happy you and your family enjoyed the house and your stay in Costa Rica! Luckily the weather was very nice and the fishing was good for you! But you are right the roads are not in great shape right now due to a few heavy quick tropical rains before you arrived... we hear the municipality has plans to finish paving ours before the end of the year, so that’s good news, and we look forward to welcoming you back then for another visit!

On our first trip to Costa Rica, Tamarindo was our first stop. What a terrific way to start our vacation. The house was amazing. It\'s beautiful and spacious and we loved the amenities. The proximity to the beach and tide pools was incredible. Every direction you looked you saw beauty. Loved having the Howler Monkeys so close though some thought their howling started a little too early ;) We were a group of 14 with a variety of ages from early 20s to 60+ and everyone found things they liked to do. We had rented golf carts to get into town (Tamarindo) and this made all our plans work out well. While the pot holes are pretty bad I actually thought that it added to the rustic semblance of an arguably touristy region. The house\'s concierge Aly was super helpful and friendly and Patricia was an exemplary cook. Many fond memories of Casa de Luz!
Manager Response:
Dear Toni, thank you for your review! Indeed we are lucky to have many attractions and excursions for such a wide variety of ages so close here to Casa de Luz, everyone always finds their bliss whether it be hiking, a spa, zip-lining, or beach-going! Golf carts are fun to drive and the perfect way to get around here, I’m happy you enjoyed having those, as well as cook Patricia to make you yummy local-style cuisine! Hope to host you again soon for a return visit, the monkeys will be waiting ;) Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

Our group of 15 (8 adults/7teens) spent a week at Casa de Luz. What an amazing experience. Everything was seamless, from booking to airport transfers to our excursions. Aly made sure of that. The house is spacious, clean, safe and is in such a beautiful spot. I couldn’t take my eyes off the view when I first arrived. The staff was awesome, even my laundry was done for me. Cook Patricia is a gem.The infinity pool was perfect, and the grounds are lush and teeming with wildlife. We enjoyed seeing howler monkeys roaming in the branches above us, iguanas and beautiful birds. The sunsets each night were spectacular on our quiet little stretch of sandy beach. We had breakfast a couple of mornings at the hotel next door. The kids were the happiest I’ve ever seen them. So much to do they were never bored. This vacation will be hard to beat. Till next time Casa de Luz! Pura Vida

Hi Jackie! Thank you so much for your descriptive review above, you've really conveyed how special Casa de Luz is for so many reasons: location in quiet residential area, pristine beach front, howler monkeys swinging in the trees above, housekeeper and chef to make you feel really taken care of, and the beautiful sun setting directly in front of the infinity pool each evening. It's such a wonderful place for kids, they definitely have so much outdoor exploring to do, I'm so happy you all enjoyed it so much! Until next time, Pura Vida! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

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.

Hi Cheryl, I am so thankful we were able to turn your plan B vacation to Costa Rica into plan A+ for you (that's a great compliment). We try our best to provide the best service and accommodations, and I am glad we were able to make your birthday celebration a success and that your friends enjoyed the estate, it's spacious and luxurious grounds, and discovering a country they had not intended to originally! They looked like a fun fun bunch, and we thoroughly enjoyed having you all! Hope to welcome you all back here at Casa de Luz! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

Hi Joy, I'm happy your family had a great time in Costa Rica, and enjoyed a spectacular day on the water sailing, and Cook Patricia's service! I do apologize for our roads being a bit bumpy in some areas, but also worry that if they were turned into major paved roadways our small town would be much busier and not so charming. It was lovely to meet you all, and wish you a wonderful upcoming holiday season! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

We loved every minute of our stay at Casa de Luz! The house was huge and amazing. I loved being right on the beach even if the beach was rocky. The sunsets were breathtaking from the pool and the beach!
Aly, the concierge, couldn't have been any more helpful. Just when we thought that Patricia had cooked the best meal ever, she would one up herself with something more amazing the next day!
We all loved having daily nice as moms to be taken care of.
We also loved being within walking distance of the town of Tamarindo. Everything was awesome and we'd love to come back with our whole family!

We had 7 couples in our party. We did not feel cramped at all. Aly the concierge was FANTASTIC. She arranged all of our Excursions prior to our arrival and some last minute reservation, cook, massages. She was just a phone call away. The maid/ gardener did a great job cleaning up after all.of us. You barely knew they were there. Patricia the cook makes a terrific meal we actually her cook for us 3 nights.
Would definitely recommend this Villa.

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!!!

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.

We stayed at Casa De Luz for our Destination Wedding at Langosta beach. What a beautiful beachfront villa! The house comfortably slept up to 16 family members and friends. The villa was very private and was able to accommodate an incredible 40 person reception. We were married in early April at Cala Luna Point just down the beach and later used the poolside for dancing and jungle clearing for dinner. We also had our rehearsal dinner on the main floor of the house the day before. The sunset from the villa was an absolute dream every single day and made for the most amazing pictures! You can watch the waves crash on the rocks from the pool. There is nothing like it! We couldn\'t have found a better reception and vacation home to share seven days in paradise and such wonderful memories. The service was excellent, with maid and grounds service daily. Aly was there to help arrange and assist with anything and everything! We highly recommend Stay in Tamarindo, such a great company full of amazing people, and Casa De Luz the best property in Langosta for a wedding event or group vacation, and a beautiful estate. We will certainly be back for an anniversary/reunion! Also, the B&B Suenos del Mar next door is a must for three-course breakfast, and if you are looking for catering we highly recommend Belly Fed Better who we had the pleasure of using all week!

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.

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.

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

I have arranged many family vacations over the years, but this was by far the best. 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

This was, without a doubt, one of the best vacation experiences we have ever had. From the very beginning Aly, the house concierge, was amazing and extremely helpful. 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.

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!

From the moment my group and I decided to stay in Tamarindo, we knew we would need to find a great company and property to help make this the trip of a lifetime. Lucky for us, we found the group at Stay in Tamarindo and they led us directly to Casa De Luz. This was the best property we could have hoped for, and the staff was top notch. Alison made all of the logistical coordination extremely easy - all even do before the trip! I could not have envisioned a better trip, company and home... Thank you team!

Great house, done very nicely (not like some of the other cheap builds are common in the area). Great location! Would definitely come back
