We are located at the north end of Playa Grande, the second to the last house on the beach. We have a beautiful, landscaped private yard with a shell shaped “cool” pool. YLang Ylang, mango, guanabana, almond, teak and guava trees are all around you. The house is located on the beautiful Las Baulas National Park where the world’s largest leatherback turtles nest.

The upstairs beachside deck is 12 feet wide by 56 feet long- plenty of room for sitting, eating, relaxing, watching surf and sunsets. The deck on the pool side upstairs is 10 feet x 56 feet (we saved a big tree over the pool.
