A group of 11 of us stayed at the house and had a GREAT time. The owner and another property rep who met us at the house gave us awesome suggestions for restaurants and beaches in the area. It's a 3 minute walk to the world-famous surfing beach and 5 minute drive to a ton of great, unique, and friendly restaurants. We saw packs of monkeys and other wildlife. The fish, pizza, and chicken dishes down there were especially good we thought. Fantastic areas for surfing lessons for us beginners. We all agreed we'd go back in a second.
It was nice to be off the tourist track and we enjoyed the 3 min walk to the beach every day. Pool was wonderful for our little ones as they could get in and out on their own using the steps. House was very large and very well equipped with all our cooking needs - and then some! We were a group of 10 and felt we had plenty of space, both indoor and out. Big thank you to Mary for her help with planning excursions and making sure we were comfortable. We would stay here again next time!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Wave House. It is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The layout of the house was perfect for our large family- everyone was able to have their private space. It was amazing to wake up to the sound of monkeys in the morning and enjoy nighttime next to the gorgeous pool. It was also nice to have such a short walk to Playa Negra beach, which ended up being the perfect spot for watching the sunset, body surfing, surfing and snorkeling for the whole family. The owner and property management company were easy to work with and accommodated all of our needs. We highly recommend the Wave House and will definitely come back again.
This house has it all!! Nice quiet location, pool, plenty of room for our group. And just a short walk to an amazing beach which has great surfing. We would wake up to wild horses around the property and monkeys enjoying their breakfast in the Mango Trees. Can't wait to schedule our next visit. Thanks again!!
If you want a relaxing, beautiful, sunset magical vacation, this is the place to be. Spacious and tastefully decorated - this villa fulfills all travelers from families, friends to a girls relaxing get away. We had time at the private pool to a stroll down to the magnificent beach that was truly the highlight of our trip. Great restaurants were a fun drive close by and we spent shopping time in Tamarindo....a must visit!! The locals are so welcoming and friendly....cant wait to go back!
Four buddies and I knocked off a bucket list item to surf the coastline in / around Tamarindo. We choose the Wave House for it's large open floor plan, friendly layout for entertaining and of course, access to uncrowded beaches.
Anytime you book a place sight unseen, you get a little nervous. The Wave House exceeded every single expectation and more.
This is a very spacious home and the bedrooms are situated in various locations offering privacy for everyone. It is located in Rancho Playa Negra which is a small development with several ocean front properties. Although this house is not located on the beach and has no views of the beach, it is a short walk down a dirt path to get to the beach.
Playa Negra is a great place to stay if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and spend some quite time enjoying the beach and the pool. The house also has a nice outdoor seating area with fans which makes it very comfortable for those that are not sun worshippers.
Also the air conditioning and fans in every bedroom was fantastic. This allowed everyone to get a good nights sleep based on their temperature preferences.
My only disappointment was the kitchen. Although it is very large and in a nice central location, there were only 5 coffee cups and no glasses (plenty of plastic cups). The gas stove in the main kithen (we didn't use the electric stove in the smaller kitchen) left black soot on all the pans and got on everything. The oven was impossible to use due to the strong gas smell and build up of debris inside that would catch on fire. There also was no BBQ.
I think this is a great house and is well suited for young families or those that are planning to eat out every night.
