“Perfect beach villa”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in May 2014

My wife and I had a glorious stay at COP. Our beach experience is either the cold waves of the Atlantic on the NH coast or the calm warm of the USVI. What a joy to experience warm and huge surf. There was a large swell during our week which challenged our limited surfing abilities, but made for heavenly body surfing. Sitting on the second floor (kitchen level) deck at 5:30am watching the ever-present surfers while enjoying the first coffee of the day was a favorite memory. One day returning from the beach we were surprised to find horses in the yard. Mary was nonplussed and shared the story of guests returning to find horses IN THE POOL! Great villa, great location, great experience.

“Amazing Beach-front House in Costa Rica”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We just came back from a 6-day stay at Casa Ola Perfecta. It is exactly as shown in the photos. It was perfect for two families. We spent the majority of our time in or by the beautiful infinity pool.

Pros:
1. Beautiful house and location
2. Short walk to great surfing beach
3. Several restaurants within a few minute drive
4. Large enough for up to 3 families, but perfectt for 2
5. Mary at Beach Grass Realty was very helpful and honest.
6. Dinner cooked by Chef Michelle was delicious. We had the Casado with fish. Be sure to get her amazing key lime pie! (Mary can coordinate)
7. We went on the excursion that included a boat tour of Palo Verde, lunch and pottery tour. Our kids wanted to skip the pottery part - but it proved to be really interesting - and everyone ended up buying some beautiful pieces. Mary arranged this as well.
8. Great surf lessons and stand up paddle board trip through Javier at Pargos Adventures! Most everyone was able to get up on the surf boards with the guidance of Javier and Ricardo.
9. The bread/pasty truck came by twice. It was a nice convenience and had very good cakes and pastries.
10. If you are a surfer, or want to learn - this is the house for you!

Cons:
1. The house, and Playa Negra itself, are a bit far from most activities. It is a 10 minute ride down a dirt road to get to the house. The Palo Verde boat trip was fun, but was a 1.5 hour trip, much of which is on a dirt road. A decent-sized supermarket is about 45 minutes from the house. However, there is a small market in town where you can pick up basics. The wine and beer selection is actually better than at the market in Santa Cruz.
2. Although the cabana bedroom is beautiful, the bathroom is not adjacent to it and does not have A/C.

“Casa Ola Perfecta is a wonderfully named home.”
Reviewed 3 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Our family of eleven, including children aged five to fourteen, loved our week in this house. The infinity pool was the shining star along with the 3 minute walk down our own path to the Pacific. Having Michelle as our chef for three nights was delightful. The house design is a strange configuration but worked quite well anyway. The water shortage was no fault of the house but was dismaying none the less! I would highly recommend this house. We all loved being together in one big space and the ping pong table was heavily used. Our airport transfers were perfect and created stress free arrival and departure (allow PLENTY of time for departure!) And, our rental cars delivered to the house was a terrific idea. The pastry truck was fun but if you like sweet/US style pastries, these are not for you. The breads, however were fabulous. Mary is an extraordinary manager and ready quickly with advice and it was fantastic to have her do our grocery shopping before we arrived! US dollars are all that you need - absolutely no need to get colones.

“Stunning beachfront house with fabulous outside space!”
Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I'll try and summarize since I don't like long reviews..

Preparation.
- Mary from Beach Grass was timely with the contract and confirmation
- Communicated well pre-visit
- Provided great directions from LIB
- Took my grocery requests and stocked the fridge for us (convenient)

House.
- Stunning views
- High end home with gorgeous main living area
- 3rd floor deck gives incredible night sky views
- infinity pool and outdoor kitchen space is resort quality.
- steps to the amazing beaches.
- very close to some great places to eat
- private and safe
- Lots of great amenities (ping pong, TV, wifi)
- Pool level full bath and outside rinse shower by pool.

Beach Grass
- prompt communication
- Very helpful with planning.
- gave A+ restaurant recommendations and made reservations where needed.
- Set me up with THE best guide for Palo Verde River tour
- Assisted in general questions about area.
- Quick refund of damage deposit once we checked out without issue.

My family of 4 had way more space than needed but this is quite an amazing house. Everything is build around views of the playa including the main living area, decks and pool area.

The house is even better in person than the pictures show. For a large party, the sleeping arrangements won't be as luxurious so let me break it down.

Master Bed
- single king with a very nice bathroom. Sleeps 2
Guest room.
- single bed, comfy sleeps 2 (shared bath)
3rd BR (Dorm room)
- double and triple bunk (5). Small , (share Bath)
Cabana room
- (separate suite off pool area). Sleeps 2 (I think).
- off main floor so I did not put kids here.
- pool level so slightly musty

For families with kids it's awesome because of the bunks and extra places to sleep.

For multi-families, one couple will get the master and then others will take the guest and cabana.

“Amazing home, perfect location!!”
Reviewed 11 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

I can't say enough about our wonderful vacation to Costa Rica and the fabulous experience with Casa Ola Perfecta. Not only is the house and location perfect, you get a fabulous friend in Mary to help with your every need. We spent the majority of our time at "sandy beach" with the kiddos (ages 4, 7 & 9) while my sweet husband was able to surf the much raved about Playa Negra break several times a day, every day. I could relax on the gorgeous beach while watching the kids play in the gentle surf AND watch my husband catch some great rides just 200 yards away. Perfection!! One afternoon the kids and I swam while watching my husband surf. Yep, that's right. We watched him catch wave after wave from the amazing infinity pool. The house is gorgeous, the view is out of this world and the outdoor kitchen and pool were heavenly! The town is small but we enjoyed that. We weren't looking for a bustling tourist town. We loved the bread/pastry truck and fish truck that come straight to your door. No need to leave town. Mary's recommendations were spot on. We attempted a meal out at a place not on her list of recommendations and we were sadly let down. Lesson learned ... Listen to Mary! The guards at the gate were super friendly and never once did we not feel safe. The house was very family friendly and had lots of board games and even an Xbox for the kids. We can't think of one negative point to mention other than 8 nights just wasn't long enough! ;) We can't wait to come back again to Costa Rica and Casa OP. Pura Vida!!
Top fav local points to mention:
Restaurant Latinos (Patacones!!)
Gelato at Playa Negra Hotel
Custom made bikinis by Marvel
Restaurant Buena Vida (great pizza!!)
