                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  Why the Owner Chose Playa Grande:
                  It took more than 5 years of exploring, comparing homes and locations in Costa Rica to find the perfect place to spend an annual escape from winter. With a construction background, the dream was to find or build a small complex of units focused on outdoor living around a shared swimming pool and outdoor lounge area – a place to meet friends and family for an annual escape. Simple living, good neighbors, a beach home close to both surf and swimming pool, air conditioning and outdoor living, insisting on solid construction, open living, cleanliness and comfort. Sunshine Villa was so perfect, the deal was closed within a month - this after 5 years of searching It’s been one of the best decisions made and now looking forward to sharing this tropical escape with you.
