We stayed at Sunshine Villa for our vacation this year and are so happy with our choice. The house is very comfortable and clean, the kitchen is nicely equipped and the patio is wonderful. Having stayed across the estuary in very busy Tamarindo in previous visits to CR, we wanted somewhere less crowded this trip. Sunshine Villa fit the bill perfectly, and will be our first choice next time we come to CR. We now recommend Sunshine Villa to our friends and family who want a relaxing stay in a nice house near the beautiful beach and estuary. This villa is everything it was presented to be, the hostess was very helpful and friendly, and the locals are extremely kind and friendly people. We are already planning another visit to Playa Grande and Sunshine Villa!

As I write this I am in "count down mode" for my third time renting Sunshine Villa. My only regret that I rent only once a year. The location is fabulous. Perfectly situated for easy access the the hubbub (restaurants/shopping) of Tamarindo without living in the insanity. The casita is super comfortable. There is a lot of closet space in each of the bedrooms & the futon/couch in the living room can accommodate an adult (I've done it). The king bed in each room is very comfortable. The kitchen has everything I have needed and or wanted, including adequate knives and an excellent coffee maker. There is a mini market 3 minute walk (possibly less). My first year renting I hosted Thanksgiving dinner for 10 and it was fine. Walk to the beach is easy, even carrying a longboard. Plenty of parking for a rental car. Easy walk to most of the area restaurants. Honestly, for a small group I can not think of a better place to stay.

Owner response: Thanks so much, it's a pleasure to host you every year. As a matter of fact, we have a number of repeat clients like yourself - they tell us this is their little secret and hope we don't let the word out.

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.
