Playa Grande apartment description

Casa Camaleon is located in Palm Beach Estates which is a quiet and exclusively private community of Playa Grande. You will arrive at Palm Beach first through a gated entrance and then on to narrow stoned roads circling our community of only around 100 homes making our community quaint and beachy. We are a short walk from the world famous surf break of Playa Grande as well as several other popular surf beaches including our homebreak right out front which we call Palm Beach Main.
The Camaleon Cabinas are a small group of 5 private, self contained apartments, owner run with specific attention to detail. The decor is ethnic boutique style simply done but perfectly sufficient. We have 2 x studio apartments, 1 x one bedroom and 2 x two bedroom apartments. Each apartment is fully equipped from kitchenware to beach towels in the hopes you should find all you need in a perfect space that feels like home steps from the ocean.
We are unique in our ability to offer affordable accommodation without compromising on what we found to be important amenities whilst still being right by the most beautiful beach and also close to the ferry which crosses over in to Tamarindo for those who want to feel a little more hustle and bustle for the day. Palm Beach is in the centre of the Marine Park for the Turtle nesting grounds. The beach is seemingly endless and always uncrowded. Great surf, stunning beach, countless wildlife of all kinds, quaint town, very good for the soul.
