Playa Grande house description
This is a luxurious large two story home built in 2008! All the amenities of home plus more. Great natural light with many windows and with air conditioning and ceiling fans in each room as well as the lanai. The wide pristine white sand swimming or surfing beach is 600 feet from the front door! There is also a fresh water estuary 800 feet in the other direction. Bring a fishing rod and you might just catch dinner.
Playa Grande is the beach that is home to the giant Leather back Turtle and adjacent to Las Baulas National Park.
Only 15 minutes to Tamarindo yet in a totally different world. Peace, tranquility, security - and a perfect spot for a romantic getaway or a fun filled family vacation.
We have baby sitters, personal chefs and surf instructors available to make your stay a stress free and active vacation.
Sipping your fresh Costa Rican coffee while sitting on the lanai you can hear the Howler Monkeys greeting you as you look out to the lush trees that surround the property.
Playa Grande is what the Costa Rican experience is all about!

That was perfect!
That was perfect!
We rented the villa for 11 days in April 2013. The house is fantastic! It is new, clean, and very comfortable. It is fully furnished with nice upscale finishing. The kitchen is equipped with almost everything we needed during the stay, even blender. There is plenty of towels in the closets. The pool is just a few steps from the front door. The condo is located in a gated community along a paved road, which is important, and very secure. It was exactly what we were looking for. The beach is long and secluded, many times we had it for ourselves. We made a couple of road trips to some adventurous places for zip lines, horse riding and hot spring, boat tours, and rafting. Rio Perdido, Hacienda El Viejo, Hacienda Guachipelin are among our favorites. They all were worthy the money and time to get there. We were pleased by Costa Rica's hospitality, especially when it was our first time to the country. We would recommend the condo to friends and will definitely be back!

This is a very safe, well equipped condo with nice furnishings, linens and plenty of room for the eight people in our family. The location is near several very nice restaurants, the best beach ever and close to a town with a very good grocery. The owner , Richard, and the caretaker. Freda, responded to all of our questions and helped us with any requests, tours etc. We especially enjoyed Pueblo Cafe, MarBar and Ripjacks. Hope to come back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this condo .

More Than We Expected!
More Than We Expected!
We were very pleased with the house in Costa Rica. It was just like it shows in the pictures. Richard helped us prepare beforehand by answering all our questions. Tom and Freda were amazing during our stay. They really made us feel welcome. We can't thank them enough for making us feel at home. Playa Grande was fantastic and the perfect place for a family getaway. We recommend the Great Waltinis at Bula Bula for dinner. The meals and service were excellent. Hopefully we can visit again one day!

We recently stayed at this lovely villa. We had plenty of space for my parents, my husband and myself, and our 2 daughters. The layout was great for 2 families- plenty of room. I really cannot say enough about the wonderful hospitality of the property managers, Tom and Freda. They were extremely helpful in steering us toward great sites (helped my father book a scuba trip and set us up on an estuary tour). They were also incredibly informative on the Costa Rican culture. The villa is extremely secure and quiet. It is a very short stroll down to the beach- so convenient. Additionally, I cannot compliment Playa Grande enough. We visited NUMEROUS beaches during our trip and Playa Grande was hands down the best beach. It was immaculate, virtually deserted, and gorgeous. Our only bits of constructive criticism are that the gorgeous kitchen could use a few more cooking items (more pots and pans, a larger strainer, etc) and the place wasn't quite as clean as we had hoped when we arrived (just a bit dusty). However, compare prices and compare beaches--- this villa is a great value and a fabulous find. I highly recommend this VRBO rental. I also concur with the other review in that Kike's food was not so great-- but be sure to go there if Tom and his band are playing- very fun.

Excellent place to stay!
Excellent place to stay!
We loved! This house. There is more than enough room for a family or a group of friends. The place was VERY secure, comfortable, & cool. Richard, the owner was helpful and willing to talk to us on the phone about all of our questions since it was our first time traveling to Costa Rica. Frida, who looks over the place & lives within the gated community (5 town house style houses) was also really helpful. Tamarindo is about a 20 minute drive away and there are also several other small towns nearby. The house was a little hard to find as are most places are in Costa Rica so I don’t suggest you try to arrive after dark. There are a few restaurants nearby (probably walking distance). We highly suggest the Italian restaurant (don’t know the name) that is not the nearest Italian place but the 2nd nearest. They serve fantastic homemade pasta & pizza. There were also a couple surf shops within walking distance, all will pretty comparable pricing. Everyone also suggested Kike’s however we didn’t like the food at all. The beds in the house were pretty hard & some of the kitchen appliances and dishes could use some upgrades but it was still 100% worth it.
