10/10 Exceptional

We could not have imagined a better place to stay on our trip to Costa Rica. The owners of Villas Kalei were extremely kind humans who truly cared about their guests and their experience. The property itself is gorgeous and a perfect mix of private and communal. There are a family of monkeys who are extremely fun to watch climb at the tops of the trees. Villas Kalei is also walking distance to amazing restaurants and the beach! You will not be disappointed with this property and the service you receive here! A must stay!

Beautiful Villas
Villas Kalei are so beautiful and we loved everything about it! Beautiful touches in the rooms, excellent food close by and very peaceful. Very close to playa grande which was our favorite beach to hang out. The owners are so kind and very helpful in recommending places for food/activities. Definitely recommend for a relaxing getaway. There’s also a group of monkeys that hang out in the trees around the property so that was fun to see. Hope we will be back!

The property is tranquil and beautiful. It is within walking distance of restaurants. Seeing the monkeys in the trees added to the stay.

You can’t go wrong staying here.
I informed Jeisha and Marcos that I typically only leave reviews if my experience is really good or really bad. My experience on their property was WAY better than I expected. I thought the pictures were cute but honestly the instant I stepped on the property I knew I made a good decision. The property was very stylish, very clean, good location, and the owners were SUPER PERSONABLE. I felt very comfortable on the property and enjoyed having some time to speak with them both. A part of me doesn’t want to share any info because I want it to be “my place” that I stay when I’m in CR. However, this place needs to be applauded. No complaints outside of the fact that I only spent a few days. I’ll be back for sure. Thanks Marcos and Jeisha.

Best place to stay in Playa Grande!
Wonderful cozy place to stay in Playa Grande. Clean rooms/cabins with nice design touches (outdoor shower, big sliding doors that open up the rooms). It’s a newer property so everything is in new condition. Just 4 cabins on the property. Pool was great! Jeisha and Marcos are such kind, welcoming hosts. Close to the beach for daily surfing and near a few great local spots like Pots and Bowls, Casa Inti, and a gym. Stay here if you’re visiting Playa Grande!

This place is absolutely gorgeous! Very unique. Loved the way the grounds were laid out with every villa having a private mini yard/place to sit outside with hammock and outdoor shower! Very peaceful. The shared grounds were very well kept up. We loved the shared kitchen and that it was outside. Again, very unique! The owners were so very pleasant and welcoming and shared their knowledge of the area and recommended places to see and based on their recommendation of a tour company, with a few emails, all our excursions were taken care of. If you stay here, you should have a car. While you can certainly walk to places near by, there isn't really a town. It was our first time in the country and I was nervous about driving so did not get a car. After being there, it was my only regret. This is a place to stay if you prefer your vacations to be away from the hustle and bustle of crowds and a lot of people.
