“Fabulous Stay”
Reviewed 28 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Our group of 14 could not have enjoyed our stay at Casa de Luz more. Aly was wonderful. We truly appreciated her warm welcome followed by great advice and assistance when needed throughout the week. Our chef was perfect and we not only enjoyed his culinary skills but also his friendly presence. Our housekeeper and grounds worker kept things very tidy and we hardly knew they were there. We rented golf carts-per Aly’s suggestion and they were a highlight of our trip. We loved being able to hop on them and be in town and in the action in a few minutes. Great location. Tamarindo’s food was delicious and the beach did not disappoint. We will be back. Thank you Casa de Luz. Pura Vida.

Dear Andee, thank you for staying with us at Casa de Luz! Cook Diego really enjoyed cooking for you (and said he had a great time with you, and was even pulled into the action of the hired Mariachi band, how fun!)!! We are so lucky here to have such fresh, locally grown produce, and fish caught each day; it makes it a pleasure for him to prepare and share his local cuisine with our guests! I hope to welcome you again here next year and continue to recommend other new experiences for you to discover more of this beautiful country! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

“Pura vida”
Reviewed 28 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Our group of 14 stayed at CdL for seven days in January. The home was beautiful, well-maintained, and close to everything we wanted to do and see. Aly is an exceptional concierge and I would encourage potential visitors to take advantage of all her recommendations. We found golf carts to be essential during our stay. Beaches are spacious and easy to get to. Plenty of food and shopping in the area. We will return to Costa Rica without a doubt!

Hi Jessica, the proximity of Casa de Luz to the town, and its central location for seeing other parts of Costa Rica are always appreciated! Guests usually enjoy the peacefulness of our more secluded beach, and are still just a 2 minute drive away from the action of Tamarindo's! Glad you had fun on the golf carts, they are a great way to zip around here! Looking forward to your return visit! Aly - Concierge at Casa de Luz

“Best Trip Ever”
Reviewed 24 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

The house was wonderful. Very comfortable for a family of 12 adults. Aly was very helpful. She helped plan the activities for each day and the people with each activity were very nice and accommodating. The activity people were prompt and friendly. We never had to wait on the van to pick us up. The house was beautiful and relaxing. It was a trip of a lifetime. Thank you Aly!

“Amazing house, great location, perfect for groups”
Reviewed 19 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

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!

“Beautiful retreat in beautiful Tamarindo, Perfect Family Vacation!!”
Reviewed 30 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Casa de Luz was all we expected an more. The house is so spacious and comfortable, more than enough room for our family of 9 with kids (ages 6 and 8). The main house has 4 Master Suites with en suite bathrooms and the Kids Room with Bunkbeds is conveniently connected to one of the upstairs suites and the TV room. The pool casita had a its own little kitchenette and a fun outdoor shower. The infinity pool was by far our favorite spot in the house, perfect for lounging and cooling off during the hot days. The beach gate allowed easy access to and from the beach. The beach in front of the house was great for exploring tide pools and finding lots of shells. It was a short walk down to a sandy beach area where you can swim. Tamarindo is a little slice of paradise, the people are so friendly and we easily fit into the Pura Vida lifestyle. Aly the house concierge was amazing, from greeting us on our first day to booking ziplining and fishing tours to setting up dinner reservations, she knew all the great places in town. Town is an easy walk away, but renting some fun golf carts was much funner and allowed us to explore.

Hi Amanda, I'm so happy you enjoyed my recommendations for restaurants and excursions, and that you enjoyed the house accommodations, grounds, and pool so much (I knew the kids would be in there the entire week after seeing them in within seconds that first day)! We look forward to welcoming you again soon!

“Pure Paradise in Tamarindo, Costa Rica!”
Reviewed 30 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We recently had the wonderful opportunity to stay in paradise at Casa de Luz, which is located within walking distance of the city of Tamarindo, Costa Rica. The stunning property has eight rooms in the main house plus a separate detached casa with it's own kitchenette, living room, bathroom and bedroom area. All rooms are large and have ocean views. The main house has a large living/dining area and a very large, wonderfully equipped full kitchen. This property is very spacious as we were there with nine other adults and never felt crowded. Casa de Luz is located on the beach where you can walk out each morning and enjoy your coffee and listen to the birds and howler monkeys talk to each other. There is a beautiful infinity pool where you can cool off while enjoying your favorite cocktail of choice. We also hired chefs to cook several meals and they prepared first class meals for us. I would highly recommend doing this during your stay at Casa de Luz. All you have to do is let the chefs know what you want to eat and they will do the shopping and cooking for you! It was great! Aly, the concierge, is very knowledgeable about various tours and fishing expeditions in the area. She can hook you up with whatever you interests are! Whether you have a large group or just two people, I would highly suggest Casa de Luz for you next trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica!

Dear Robin, thank you for your kind review! I'm glad you liked Casa de Luz! Here you can indeed walk from your bed to the beach barefoot with coffee in hand, and Howler monkeys in the trees, it is like waking up in paradise! I'm happy it was perfect for your group of friends, and that you enjoyed the comforts of cook Patricia's delicious meals while enjoying the home! Hope you'll visit us again soon!

“Breathtaking sunsets, huge, comfortable house & accommodating staff!”
Reviewed 24 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

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 housekeeping...so 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!
