Property description





Latitude: 10.3372
Longitude: 85.8504

Casa Sylmar is a four bedroom four and a half bath direct Ocean Front Home, built right in the sand just steps from the water's edge. Providing daily maid service, sleeps up to fourteen people. Enjoy a delightful massage on your beach front terrace or relax in a hammock under the coconut palms.

From your living room, dining room, kitchen and terrace you will experience spectacular sunsets and stunning ocean and coastline views spanning more than seven miles with a beautiful back drop of the Guanacaste Mountain Range.

Casa Sylmar is said to be one of the most beautiful ocean front homes ever built in Costa Rica. Surrounded buy an abundance of coconut palms, almond trees, flowering hibiscus and banana trees. This two story Mediterranean style home has a unique style all of its own. All interior doors, window frames and cabinetry throughout are made from the finest Mahogany and other select woods from Costa Rica. All interior ceilings are pure white with double crown mouldings, creating a warm beach atmosphere with a touch of elegance. Hunter Ceiling Fans with remote control through out the entire house.

All Bedrooms are air conditioned with private bath.
Bedroom 1 - First Floor: One King
Bedroom 2 - First Floor: Two Double
Bedroom 3 - Second Floor: One Queen
Bedroom 4 - Second Floor (One Bedroom Apartment): Two Double,
One Sofa Bed.

The moment you step from your terrace you are in the sand, surrounded by Coconut Palms and Almendro Trees, just steps from the waters edge. The beach in front of the house has a flat sand bottom, without a doubt the best section of beach in Playa Grande, great for swimming, great for kids and lots of shade.

Whether inside or out on the beach you will see perfect waves breaking a short distance to the left and right of the house where you will usually see some of the best surfers in Costa Rica enjoying our pristine waves.

We rent boogie boards and beginner surf boards which are covered with thick protective foam and have soft flexible rubberized fins for maximum safety, very beginner friendly. We offer free surf lessons. Great fun for everyone.

Just a 15 minute stroll down the beach is Playa Carbon, one of Costa Rica’s rare black sand beaches. On the way you will see a giant 50 foot rock that sits in the water close to shore just a short distance to the right of the house where you can play in the rock tide pools which are filled with many shells and small marine life. Good shoreline fishing at the rock.

Playa Grande is one of the few beaches in the world where Giant Leather Back Turtles weighing up to 1,800 pounds and up to 9 feet long come at night to nest and lay their eggs. Many nights these amazing prehistoric animals nest directly in front of our homes. (A Must See).

We highly recommended you to experience Local Bull Riding at the local Fiestas (Typical Parties). You will see bull riding like you have never seen before. It's like going back to the Old West, but Costa Rican Style. There are a wide variety of activities and day trips available in our region. We can help you arrange.

Private guided day trips to one of our favorite rivers to see Crocodiles, Macaw, Parrots, and a variety of Exotic Birds, Giant Iguanas, White Face, and Howler Monkeys and many other animals. The trip ends with a typical Costa Rican Lunch (Excellent Food). On your trip back, you will stop in the small town of Guaitil,
famous for handmade pottery, fired on site in a Tico Style clay wood burning ovens.

Playa Grande is conveniently located between the towns of Tamarindo and Flamingo. Tamarindo is just 20 minutes to the South by car or a 35 minute beach walk to the river mouth that separates us from Tamarindo. For about one dollar, a boat taxi will take you across the river.
