Playa Grande townhome description

Our townhome is an end unit that gives maximum privacy and has a single-home feel to it. Each room has its own air conditioning unit and overhead fan. Two levels give plenty of space to spread out. The deck overlooks the Pacific Ocean and trees where you can see monkeys, birds and iguanas while you enjoy your morning coffee or evening refreshment. Internet connections, tv, dvd, stereo and in the living area. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, all the cookware you will need, blender, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, etc. that will make cooking a pleasure.


Windows on the west and north sides of the upstairs living areas make it easy to keep your eyes on the ocean and watch the boats come and go or to look at the trees and see monkeys, colorful birds and iguanas. The unit affords privacy that few other complexes can offer. The wrap-around balcony has a table, chairs and lounge for you to use for any meals or for just relaxing. The overhead fans will keep you cool.
From Villas Catalinas 13, it is easy to arrange for kayak rentals, horseback riding, day trips, fishing tours, sunset sails or other activities. Jorge, the manager, will answer any questions you may have.

                                        We had a great time in your house, it is just fantastic. The best of it is the view and the proximity to the beach. The only thing we missed was a barbeque. As for Jorge he was very nice and efficient. We found and ac unit not working right and he fixed it in the blink of an eye. My wife loves to cook and found just every little toy she needed in the kitchen, and if she is happy so are we, because we love her food....lol Thank you so much for letting us rent you beautiful place. Pura vida!

                                        This was our 3rd and final CR destination on this vacation and your house is so warm, welcoming, comfortable and lovely that we don't want to leave! We have truly felt at home here and my boys (5 & 7) enjoyed how kid friendly your place is. The view is spectacular, the beaches pristine and we are looking forward to planning another trip here.

                                      Year Purchased: 2009

                                      About the owner: We are retired and live almost half of the time in our home in Costa Rica. The other part of the time we are based in Denver, but travel when the mood strikes us. We love our CR home and hope you will, too!

                                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Grande:
                                      When we decided to buy in Costa Rica, we knew we wanted something with a beautiful ocean view. We didn't want to be in a very developed, touristy area, but we did want to be near enough to enjoy the things those areas offer. We believe our location is perfect: a quick walk to two beaches, near a small village, 30 minutes to Tamarindo for 'major' shopping sprees, and just over an hour to Liberia airport.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                                      Our complex, Villas Catalinas, is gated and there is always at least one guard on duty. The infinity pool is located at the top of the hill where the view is almost unbelievable! But when we have had guests, the thing they always remember and comment on the most is how relaxing it was to just sit on the deck and enjoy the view!
