• sleeps 13, with Casa Mirage #78040 (26 guests)

A refreshing open air courtyard offers each bedroom a private entrance. Terrazzo tile floors flow throughout the interior and spill out across the spacious beachfront verandas. Tropical gardens, including coconut, banana and palm trees create an attractive atmosphere.

Uniquely located with no roads to cross or vegetation to block your view. Imagine surfing directly off the backyard, scanning the trees for howler monkeys, sea shelling along the beach or gazing at the stars. From the privacy of this beachfront home take delight swinging in a hammock, indulging in a spa treatment, sipping from a freshly opened coconut or simply smiling at a sunset. It's barefoot luxury!

A key advantage of being in Playa Grande is it's small but lively neighborhood community, yet only 20 minutes from the high paced and partying tourist town of Playa Tamarindo. There is a variety of 12 restaurants, a few surf shops, spa services, yoga classes, horseback riding, turtle tours, and bike/surfboard/SUP rentals are all within walking distance. For all this, PG is the perfect laid-back beach location.

Included in the rental rate are all fees, wireless internet, room cleaning every third day, laundry service and nightly security. A private cook and nanny are available at an additional cost. Reduced rates for smaller groups.

                  Only an hour drive from the Liberia Airport (LIR,) Playa Grande is centrally located between Playa Tamarindo and Playa Flamingo. Truly one of the most unique, unspoiled vacation spots in Costa Rica, its 2 mile-long crescent shaped coastline, of warm blue waters and honey colored sand forms the Las Baulas Marine National Park. A sanctuary for the nesting giant leatherback turtles.

                  Go explore the estuary in a canoe, spotting birds, iguanas and crocodiles basking on the sun-drenched riverbanks. Snorkel Playa Conchal made up of billions of crushed shells. Attend a weekend fiesta, featuring bull riding, traditional food, marimba music, and dancing. Tee-off at the course designed by Robert Trent Jones which meanders through a rolling terrain with breathtaking ocean views. To end the day sail along the shoreline as dolphins frolic beside you.

                  For thrill seekers and nature lovers alike enter the realms of the forest via a canopy tour. Get your adrenalin pumping inner tubing or riverafting on the Rio Negro. Visit Rincon De La Vieja to enjoy great hiking, waterfalls, boiling mud pots, sulpher vents and a large diversity of wildlife species. Get in the action of deep blue water fishing, targeting sailfish, marlin, yellowfin tuna, dorado, wahoo, roosterfish, and snapper. Experience the rich Guanacaste folklore and ancient Chorotega Indian traditions of pottery making in village of Guatil.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1991

                  Why the Owner Chose Playa Grande:
                  We are a family of 'water babies' born and raised on the beach shores of Santa Barbara, CA. (Of course the grand kids also have this ocean gene). Once my children (Julie, J.C, and Mark) became of an age when we could all travel my husband and I would take them during summer vacation on a surf safari to an exotic destination somewhere in the world. This was not only for fun, but to spend quality time with each other as well as to expose and educate them about different cultures and customs. On a surfing safari to Costa Rica in '91 we instantly fell in love with the country, the kind and hospitable people, and the natural habitat. It was a paradise!! Long story short after returning to the States and raving to family and friends about this oasis a friend said he had the perfect property for our family in Playa Grande. My husband flew down a month later and purchased the property for me as my 50th B-Day present! Over the past 17 years both my family and friends lives have been significantly enhanced by the beauty of the 'Tico' people, the natural wonders that surrounds us and the 'Pura Vida' lifestyle. This means Pure Life, an expression of contentment, happiness, and satisfaction with ones life. It's this philosophy that ranks Costa Rica as one of the happiest places in the world!! We invite you along with your family and friends to visit and enjoy the surf, sand, sun, & experience the 'Pura Vida' life.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Playa Grande is a magical beach, for thousands of years the prehistoric leatherback turtles have come to nest and the ancient Chortega Indians performed ceremonies. Immersed in the peacefulness of the surrounding beauty, the' pura vida' life is easily attained.
