Car: Recommended

Casa Michael is around the corner from the beach access of Playa Grande, miles of clean, white sand and the Pacific ocean. Experience beautiful sunsets, natures abundance of different species of birds, and plants native to the area. Listen for the Howler monkeys, and the sound of the surf hitting the beach beyond, all from the shade of the porch.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: My wife and I have been builders, and restoration, professionals for 38 years. We are from New York, originally,and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. We enjoy building new homes out here and have done for the past couple of years.

Why Playa Grande:
This property and gracious home struck us upon first viewing. Love at first sight. It has the unique quality of origin. It speaks to Tropical Houses of yester-year - with it's porches and large overhangs, sounds of the surf close by, rocking chairs and hammocks. The house is original to the development, built by the original German investment group. We restored and updated the appliances, porches, roof. We built the infinity edge pool, and added gardens to the existing fruit trees that thrive there. We updated all electrical exterior lights and interior lighting, but left the ambiance intact.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
House is adjacent to the green space - monkeys,birds, all migrate past the property in the tree canopy above. Fun to watch Howlers with their young on their backs. The beach access is a very short walk away. The neighborhood is upscale and immaculate; it is a friendly community of Europeans, Americans and local business people. Maintaining our 'Paradise' is paramount to all who live here in Palm Beach Estates. We were drawn to this community because of that value system.
