Playa Grande villa description

BEST VALUE for something truly nice in PLAYA GRANDE. Our beautifully appointed, fully furnished home provides a wonderful and relaxing getaway in a private, gated, quaint, laid back beach community separated from the congestion of Tamarindo. It is within a short 5 minute walk to a beautiful, pristine surfing beach, several great restaurants, bars, and a grocery. Tiled roof, floors and counter tops throughout. Relax on the covered patio where Iguanas and colorful birds perch and will eat from your hand. Monkeys and parrots play overhead. Also, within walking distance, a beautiful estuary provides fishing, boating, and offers a water taxi which takes you on a 5 minute ride to Tamarindo for dining, dancing, gambling, shopping and souviners. You may also choose to walk to Tamarindo via the beach (possible only at very low tide) . Dual vanities in bathroom. Maid service included (Mon/Wed/Fri)! We invite you to stay in comfort while you are in Playa Grande. Mi casa es su casa). AWESOME BEACH!!!!! Read our reviews. Two beach-cruiser type bicycles are included with this rental. Casa Mambo is close enough to the beach to hear the waves crashing when they are big! It is an easy and very short walk to the beach from the house (or an even quicker bicycle ride),

                              Year Purchased: 1999

                              About the owner: I have been going to Costa Rica at least once a year since 1987 and continue to love this place tremendously! Always look forward to my next trip to Playa Grande. My parents also love Playa Grande and stay at the house for a full month each year.

                              Why the Owner Chose Playa Grande:
                              Most pristine beach in all of Costa Rica in my opinion. Very laid back community which you will feel apart of very quickly. I hope you get to experience Casa Mambo.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              'feels like my own little Costa Rica home' as stated by one of our many regularly returning guests.
