Property description

Enjoy the luxury of outdoor living in serenity and seclusion, in this amazing compound boasting multiple living areas for multiple activities.

Nestled on a 7.5 acre property, with over 200 meters (675 linear feet) of beach frontage, at the most private sector of Playa Grande’s four mile long beach within Las Baulas National Marine Park, this spacious compound is just steps from the water’s edge and offers views of the beach and spectacular sunsets from virtually every vantage point.

The very large swimming pool (where you can actually swim laps and children can actually play), is only steps from the beach and conveniently located between the Tiki bar, the main house and the guest house - all surrounded by beautiful gardens planted with palm trees, fruit trees and flowers that attract monkeys, exotic birds , iguanas and many other sorts of wildlife from the park .

With three master suites and two regular bedrooms (all with adjacent bathrooms, air conditioning and TV), a fully equipped ocean view kitchen, three dinning areas and indoor and outdoor living areas, Casa Velas is the ideal vacation home for groups of one or more families.

The Villa is designed in a way that integrates the different activity areas yet allowing for space and privacy among its guests.

If you plan your trip between October and March you will have the privilege of witnessing the majestic Leatherback Turtles nesting , sometimes right in front of the main house.

Daily housekeeping , gardener and 24 hour security are provided ; our amazing private chef is also available at your request - all contributing to give you the experience of fun , play , relaxation and pampering that defines Costa Rican living.

A five minute walk will take you to the estuary that separates pristine Playa Grande from Tamarindo - where you will find an abundance of restaurants , shops and nightlife. A panga will take you across for a small fee.
Love Nature, Live Nature, Enjoy the Costa Rican Experience !!!!!

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Playa Grande:
My husband inherited the property from his family. Initially there was absolutely nothing so we would go camping. It was fantastic. Casa Velas was one of the first constructions in Playa Grande. When the first house was built, regulations did not require that there be a setback from the public area, so it was built as close to the beach as possible. We later opened up the house to to keep the feeling of outdoor living that we love so much. We have traveled around the world and have not yet found a place quite like our beautiful Playa Grande.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
No other house in the area is as close to the ocean as Casa Velas. We do not walk to the beach. We can be in the comfort of the villa and be steps from the ocean. The large swimming pool, also steps from the ocean, has the compound wrap around it - very convenient to watch over the younger guests. Space, space, space.
