Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Your hosts are David and Kelly Dodge. We have lived and taught in the area for 19 years. We'd be delighted to have the opportunity to share with you this beautiful part of Costa Rica, a magical place that we love so dearly.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Grande:
We love the country and the people and have many good 'Tico' friends in the area. Playa Grande is unique because it is still laid back and not inundated with tourists. We are nature lovers and the fact that Playa Grande is a protected nesting area for the leatherback turtles was a big draw. We also prefer the drier climate of Guanacaste to other more humid beaches in the country.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
For us, Costa Rica is one of the most magical places on earth. It is the simple things that we find so amazing. We love to go out to the beach at night with a beach towel. We spread it out, lay down and just gaze at the incredible sky. You've never seen so many stars! We love the walks we take down simple trails as well as on the beach The sounds of nature are incredible at our home in Playa Grande. You'll hear a dozen different birds singing before you ever see them. If you follow the sound, you'll be delighted to discover the creature who's making it. Laying in the hammock, I've had blue jays come eat out of my hand. An iguana sunning himself on the roof, the swarms of dragon flies that occasion the beach, the baby turtles hatching, monkeys grazing in the trees in front of the house, these simple things are what make our Playa Grande home special to us. The area now has all the comforts of home, but nature is still alive and well as the sound of constant crash of the waves in our front yard named Playa Grande.
