Response from Stay in TamarindoThank you Enrique! We're happy to know you had a great experience! Hope you plan on coming back! ;-)
We sprayed and it took care of the issue.
It was clean and the maid service was good.
Lot's of room for 3 couples. Very good A/C which is very important in Costa Rica.

Response from Stay in TamarindoHi 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
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi 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! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi Molly! Thank you so much for your kind words! It was a pleasure to have been of assistance and to have helped you organize your trip. The pool is the best to hang over the edge and watch the sun setting directly in front, I’m thrilled you had such a wonderful time here! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi 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
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi 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
the help was wonderful and patricia was great. terrible roads with many potholes but that probably isnt anyone can change?
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi 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
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!
Response from Stay in TamarindoDear Molly, thank you for your glowing review, cook Patricia IS a gem! I'm so happy we made you feel well taken care of at "a home away from home" during your relaxing time off. We'll show your family a good time, can't wait to greet you back here! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
Would definitely recommend this Villa.
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi Kelly, thank you so much for choosing to stay at Casa de Luz for your vacation this year! We certainly try our very best to make all our house guests feel welcomed, taken care of, comfortable, and special! So I thank you for your lovely compliments, and I'll be sure to pass them along to cook Patricia, housekeeper Zaida and groundskeeper Cesar! Pura Vida! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoDear 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
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.
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi Brooks, I'm so happy you enjoyed your time at Casa de Luz, and that it was the perfect setup for your family! We are very lucky to co-exist with such unique wildlife like the Howler monkeys in our treetops! This piece of paradise awaits your return visit! I hope to welcome you here again soon. Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi 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! I'm so pleased you also enjoyed the beautiful beachfront and snorkeling right outside the Estate! The volcanic rock formation is indeed perfect for it, and you even saw eels and octopus (that's awesome)!!! What a wonderful Birthday celebration trip! Hope to welcome you all back next year! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi Lee! With a big family and so many different arrivals, departures, and interests in various activities, it can be very helpful to have a private Concierge dedicated to Casa de Luz's guests, to organize things ahead of time so you can start relaxing immediately upon your arrival in paradise! I'm so happy you enjoyed the house and pool and view, and look forward to greeting you back here again soon! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi Terry, The tide pools are gorgeous at sunset with the light reflecting off of them; Playa Langosta is such a special place! The staff do their best to make your stay very comfortable and it was an absolute pleasure to assist you with your trip planning! Hope to see you again in Costa Rica soon! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
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...
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi Fernando, It was a our pleasure assisting with the organization of this vacation. I'm so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the staff and services provided, and am thrilled that Casa de Luz was perfectly suited for your golf group (with a choice of 2 great courses in such close proximity)! We look forward to welcoming you back for another round very soon! Saludos Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi Kathy, I am thrilled you enjoyed the unique mountain spa experience as much as I do! Housekeeper Zaida is a gem and goes out of her way to make guests feel so at home, as does cook Patricia with her delicious dishes prepared with love! Thank you for your lovely comments I'll be sure to pass them along! Until next time, take good care! Aly
Response from Stay in TamarindoHi 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 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.
Response from Stay in TamarindoDear Guillermo, the staff and I try to provide guests the ultimate vacation experience and service, I'm so happy you enjoyed it, and that the house was a perfect fit for your lovely family! I look forward to seeing you back here year after year! :) Pura Vida! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoThank you Jessica! We're very happy to know you had a great stay and will make sure to pass on your kind comments to Aly the concierge!! Hope to have you and your family again staying with us again! Kind regards -Gilda Hi Jessica! It was so great to meet you, and thank you for your wonderful review. I'm happy all the families enjoyed their stays at Casa de Luz! The home's beachfront is indeed so much fun for snorkeling (and fishing off the rocks too)!! It was my absolute pleasure to host you, and I hope you return to visit us in Costa Rica again soon! Aly Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoChris we're so happy to know you had an amazing experience at Casa de Luz! We'll make sure to pass on your kind comments to Aly! Hope to have you guys back soon!! Pura vida! -Gilda Dear Chris, I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and that the house was so suitable for you and your friends! It was a pleasure to be of service to help plan this special trip! We look forward to your next visit! Aly, Concierge at Casa de Luz
Response from Stay in TamarindoThank you Chris! We would love to help you plan for another amazing stay! Thank you again for staying with us! Pura vida! -Gilda
It's an experience that everybody must live.
Incredible views, sounds, everything. You going to be living at the forest. Be able to see lot of animals, in their natural place, eating, flying, right next to you. Listen to the sound of the ocean, the monkies, all.
Really is something unforgetable. It's an experience for life!
Response from Stay in TamarindoMauricio, We are so happy to hear you had an amazing experience and loved your stay. It is true its a magical place. We look forward to welcoming you back for another round very soon!
