Recent Playa Carrillo vacation rental reviews

Private, quiet, lovely pool, attentive host, close to the beach and great restaurants!
William H. | Feb 2023
Casa Sol is a cute house that is a short drive to beautiful Playa Carrillo and the awesome town of Samara. Restaurants, shopping and activities nearby. The house has a well-equipped kitchen. The pool is small, but perfect. The owner is wonderful, and allowed us to change our dates with no penalty. And he was super easy to work with via WhatsApp once there. A few things that kept us from giving five stars: the downstairs shower is broken and there’s no hot water. There’s also no mirror, so it’s basically just a powder room. Our whole family shared the upstairs bathroom. The house has a washer but no dryer or clothes line. So we hung our clothes all over the house to dry. There are plenty of bath towels, but no beach towels. The king mattress is awful—squeaks and causes a back ache. But the full beds in the bunks are all great, so we slept in there. Also, you expect bugs in Costa Rica, but the downstairs windows and doors don’t seal, so you get a lot of creepy crawly visitors—like a scorpion in the bathroom. Surprise! With a little attention, the house could be nearly perfect!

Things to do near your Playa Carrillo rental 

It's no surprise the focal point of Playa Carrillo is the beach. It isn't as developed as some of Costa Rica's other beaches, making it a unique experience free of crowds. In addition to lounging on the soft sand and soaking up the sun to the sound of ocean waves, plenty of other activities await in this peaceful paradise.

Swim in the warm waters of the North Pacific or snorkel and explore beautiful coral reefs. Take a tour or go out on your own for sport-fishing, jet skiing, water skiing, and kayaking. At the end of the day, sit back, relax, and take in glowing sunsets with the screeches and bellows of howler monkeys in the distance.

Complete your Costa Rican experience with delicious meals out. Cabinas el Colibri offers exquisite fare for breakfast and dinner while Gusto Beach in Samara is the place to go for a relaxed lunch on the beach followed by mouthwatering drinks at happy hour.

When you come to Costa Rica, round out your vacation with a stay in one of our Playa Carrillo vacation rentals to ensure a stress-free and relaxing stay. Book today.
