This beautiful 3 bedroom 3 bath villa is a short 5 minute walk to the quiet, pristine sands of Playa Langosta, one of Costa Rica's Northern Pacific finest surfing beaches. The beach also houses an estuary providing calm tidal pools for ocean and beach lovers of all ages, shapes and sizes.
Built with fine Costa rican woods, granite, marble and ceramic tile, the layout features a bedroom suite downstairs and two bedroom suites upstairs, each with separate access to the dipping pool (downstairs) or patio deck (upstairs). The fully furnished kitchen opens directly to the dining and living areas. An additional living area upstairs includes a couch with fold out double bed, enabling Valencias del Mar #1 to easily accommodate 8 adventurous travelers. High end furniture, beds, fixtures and appliances will keep you in pampered comfort during your stay.
Adjacent to the villa is a national forest making observation of Costa Rica's favorite exotic birds and critters as simple as taking 3 steps from your bedroom to the second floor deck overlooking the forest. Watch for the howler monkeys!
A grocery store sits conveniently between Valencia del Mar and the beach and Water man's Surf Shop is also close by to cater to all your rental and tour arrangement needs. There's fine dining in Langosta and much more in Tamarindo, a leisurely 15 minute walk north on the beach or road.

About: I live in the Chicago area with my wife and college-age son and daughter. We first visited Costa Rica with three other families over our holiday break five years ago. The best trip of our lives!! I've been actively searching for a second home outside the states since my semi-retirement 2.5 years ago. My wife and I have always dreamed of having a second home near or on a beautiful beach and after scouring both coasts in the states, and the beaches of Mexico, the Caribbean and Ecuador, we finally landed here in Playa Langosta.
Why Playa Langosta: The trifecta of beaches along the coast here-Playa Grande, Tamarindo and Playa Langosta are like no others I have seen in my life! Tamarindo teems with activity while Grande and Langosta provide the bookends with tranquility. I love being plugged in to Costa Rica's natural diversity at Valencias del Mar with the national forest next door to the east and the trifecta's 10 miles of uninterrupted beaches to explore on the coast. The surfer vibe completes the scene. Personally, I'm a body surfer and its nice to know this part of the Pacific coast is served by the most consistent swell in Costa Rica. Pura Vida!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Three bedroom places aren't too common in Playa Langosta. When I sat on the second floor deck overlooking the forest with sounds and sites of parrots and monkeys in the canopy overhead, I knew the location of Valencias del Mar was right for me. It feels good to be part of a community that has such a strong appreciation for its natural surroundings.
