“Most relaxing vacation spot ever”

person found this review helpful

Great house in a very relaxing location. The ocean is basically in your back yard, the beach is nearby, great restaurants are 5 min drive away.
Mary and the staff were very helpful
Would highly recommend.

“Perfect Getaway House”
Reviewed 11 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed at Casa papaya con leche over the holidays with another couple that were looking to get away for NYE. From the start of finding the property, Mary at Beach Grass Rentals was beyond helpful. She helped us understand the surrounding areas and what to expect and also helped us set up some excursions while we were there. This really put me at ease that the property would probably be pretty nice as well.

We arrived at night, but it was a full moon out and you could see the crashing ocean perfectly right from the wrap around balcony. Mary was there to greet us and give us a tour of the house. The house was just what we were expecting and there was an abundance of towels & kitchen appliances to make our stay comfortable. Staying at Casa Papaya is much different from your typical vacation in a resort town. Rancho Playa Negra, the property that the house is on, is very secluded and tourist shops don't exist here. If you are looking for that type of vacation, stay north a bit in Tamarindo. This was a quiet, tranquil piece of land with great private beach access.

The security guards roaming the property and our alarm system made us feel safe at all times. We didn't have one problem while staying there and the people in Playa Negra are all very friendly. I would highly recommend staying at this house if you are in need of a private, and relaxing vacation.
