Playa Grande villa 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, at the most private section of Playa Grande’s four mile long beach in 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 swimming pool is 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 rooms (all with adjacent bathrooms and air conditioning), 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 ; a 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 !!!!!

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Grande:
                      My husband inherited the property from his father. Initially there was absolutely nothing and we would go camping ; we later designed the house to be as open as possible to keep the feeling of living outdoors that we loved so much. We have traveled all around the world and have not yet found a place quite like this one.
