About: Our family: Mera, Niek and our two kids Ives and Lana, are the proud owners of this piece of paradise called Villa Luz y Sombra. We bought the house as we fell in love with it., it has everything you want and need for a relaxing vacation. This second home is made of the most exceptional hardwood designed by a German architect. It sets in a beautiful tropical garden, where you are surrounded by monkeys, sloths, toucans and millions of tropical birds and butterflies. The villa is situated in a upscale and safe area, steps away from a white sanded paradise beach. We are living in The Netherlands and are very happy that Green Management is managing the property as we know they are taking good care of it. Their office is around the corner of the house so that is always handy as they can help you out with any questions you might have.
Why Playa Chiquita: We bought this property as we fell in love with it. If you stay there we are sure you will feel the same as it is an excluding house with beautiful details as expected from a German architect. The area is beautiful and the house is walking distance from some of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. It is also walking distance from some nice shops and fine restaurants. The wild life is amazing and when you sit on the veranda you can see the wild live passing by which is a magnificent experience.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The house is one of a kind and all is made from (hard) wood making it very natural and this is emphasized by the interior garden and the natural flow of air by the wind making it cool when it is hot and no air conditioning is required.
