Why the Owner Chose Playa Ocotal: My husband and I looked at over 30 properties before deciding to build at Los Almendros. We wanted a modern condo with a spectacular ocean view. Our daughter loves the beach and we wanted to find a condo that was a short walk to a beach with a gentle surf that offered save swimming and snorkeling. We learned that condos on the beach were noisier, offered less privacy and did not have the beautiful ocean views as properties at higher elevations. Our daughter wanted a development with a beautiful swimming pool. I wanted a quiet and very private condo. I wanted to be able to rest and relax on a patio where noise from swimming pools were not audible. My husband is a 'birder'. He enjoys watching Guanacaste's colorful birds and other wildlife.
Most prime beachfront properties in Costa Rica have been purchased and developed by large international hotel chains or very large local projects. The gentlemen who developed Los Almendros de Ocotal, built on a beachfront property owned by his family for three generations. His vision was to develop high quality housing units that adventuresome North Americans would prefer to beachfront properties in Florida. He wanted to create a vacation property complex that was large enough to offer nice swimming pools and other amenities...and small enough that guests would receive the individual attention of management and staff.
Los Almendros is a very unique property. It offers everything we wanted, and more. We love to share this beautiful property with family, friends and visitors from North America and Europe.
