Playa Grande house description
****GREATLY REDUCED RATES - least expensive oceanfront home available***** Book in July and August for a week and get the house at $1250/week. That's $850 off! Villa Siempre is a wonderfully unique oceanfront property in Playa Grande, Costa Rica. From this great vacation rental home there is nothing between you and the beach; you can step right from the wooden deck onto the stunning white sand of Playa Grande Beach. Playa Grande is a wonderful beach for children and also a well-known surf break (with both left and right hand waves on a point beach break). The duplex is newly renovated with high quality appliances and fittings.
The kitchen is a wonderful bright blue and is well equipped including beautiful Kitchen Aid appliances. You can watch the waves break while you are preparing meals or while enjoying a drink or breakfast at the bar. The home has high ceilings and wonderful natural light.
* Please note the carport is 80 inches high and will not accommodate a van or large c
Each of the 3 bedrooms has it’s own bathroom and air-conditioner. The master bedroom has a king bed and many wonderful wood accents.The two downstairs bedrooms both have lofts - there are queen beds downstairs and two twin beds in the lofts.
As you relax outside on the deck, on the beautiful teak table and chairs or lounges, you can watch the children play on the beach or just watch perfect waves break. At six o'clock every night you can watch the sunset over the ocean and when conditions are just right you may even see the elusive green flash.
This is the ultimate place for a beach vacation, the beach and waves of the famous Playa Grande just outside your door and then the many attractions of Tamarindo and the surrounding towns nearby.
Playa Grande beach is a great place for collecting shells and there is also a wonderful huge rock that you can climb that is surrounded by beautiful rock pools full of shells and marine creatures. There is also a gorgeous black sand beach with many variations of shells in the next cove a short stroll from your house.
If you are lucky enough to be at the beach between January to March - this is also the sight of the Leatherback Turtles nesting grounds and you can arrange special tours to see them come up onto the beach at night to nest and watch the young nestlings scamper to the water at day break.
Tamarindo, a wonderful bustling tourist town, can be accessed by strolling along the beach and catching a boat across the estuary or by car. The walk is about 45 minutes and then very quick boat ride (only available in daylight hours and costs about $1 each way). Many people swim or walk across the estuary but for me $1 was worth the dry clothes on the other side.
Tamarindo has many wonderful shops and restaurants as well as a beautiful beach. Our favorite restaurant was the Lazy Wave which has a swing bar (it actually has an area full of hinged swings that both adults and children enjoy).
You can also take a boat ride down the estuary; early morning is the best time, and view the wonderful wild life in the area. We saw all sorts of birds and numerous crocodiles and our driver also found us a huge family of howler monkeys a short walk from the banks.
For those with children a visit to the monkey hospital is a must - the volunteers will let you hold the baby howler monkeys, but make sure you do not go too close to Pedro the Spider monkey as he likes to pull little girl's hair.
For those of you wanting a beach vacation this is the ultimate location, the house is fantastic, it comes with daily maid service and a cook can also be organized. The Costa Rican people are very friendly and the area is a wonderfully interesting place to visit.

This place really knocked my socks off- upon arrival I was stunned by the size and quality of this pristine beach... the pictures cannot describe how incredible this location is! We felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves- tip: rent surfboards from the neighbor a few doors down to keep at the house so that you can head out for a quick session whenever the desire strikes you! The house is much bigger than expected (not only 5 rooms, but its a huge house, so you aren't tripping over each other in communal spaces) with a wall of glass facing the ocean for killer views. Lawn chairs and hammocks give you the option of chilling in the shade up by the house- no need to pack up your towels/stuff to go down to the beach- It's RIGHT outside your door! Mireya keeps the place perfect and sand-free and will help arrange canopy/ATV tours if your Spanish is as dismal as mine- very helpful. Enjoy the long romantic walk to Tamarindo town down the beach if you want to get a taste of nightlife or a fancy dinner at Seasons (awesome restaurant!) and then breathe a sigh of relief as you head home out of all the hubub and tourist traps back to Villa Siempre- if you like your vacations to be tranquil and without someone trying to sell you something every 3 minutes, you will be SO happy you chose to stay out in Playa Grande rather than in town! Great value for this house... will definitely be going back. Would also be great for a multi-family rental, or a family reunion as it has so much space! HIGHLY recommended!!!

For anyone wishing a nice RELAXING vacation in an amazing location Playa Grande is one of the best places I have ever stayed in my life! The people are friendly (also petty thieves so everything is locked up all the time. However, it didn't affect us in a negative way!) The beach is amazing and is 1-1a only to the famed 7 mile beach in Jamaica. Eight people stated in this house and everyone had a great time. The local restaurants have great food and is relatively inexpensive. One exception is the AMAZING sushi restaurant only five minutes from the house. The best salmon I have ever had! The best deal of the week was the local taco stand down the beach at the edge of the Hotel de Tortugas, say hi to Britney! For anyone going down, enjoy this place, it is amazing and can't wait to go back!.

The perfect getaway...

I stayed here with a group of friends (6 total) and couldn't have been happier with the property. The pictures don't do it justice. It was open, airy, spacious, and Mireya kept the place immaculate. The sliding glass doors open right onto the beach--so much so that on some afternoons we didn't even feel it necessary to drag our towels into the sand. I had first considered staying in nearby Tamarindo, but am so glad we chose this more secluded, quiet beach. Tamarindo was a close drive for nights out, but our days were all ours on the beach at Playa Grande. There are small shops and restaurants, too. We arranged ATV and canopy tours one day, and a sailing excursion on another. Every other day was spent lounging around the beach, which, surprisingly for me, didn't get old! Overall, an amazing, relaxing vacation. I recommend the house to anyone looking to get away from it all (but still have a lot of options nearby).
