Villa Olivia offers a perfect and uncomplicated oceanfront vacation, specifically designed for friends, families, or groups. With our other oceanfront villa located next door, Casa Mirage, we can accommodate 26 guests.

Playa Grande “big beach” is truly one of the most unique, unspoiled vacation spots in Costa Rica. Located only an hour drive from the Liberia Airport (LIR) its 2 mile-long crescent shaped coastline of warm blue waters and honey colored sand forms the Las Baulas Marine National Park. A sanctuary for the nesting giant leatherback turtles.

Go explore the estuary in a canoe, spotting birds, iguanas and crocodiles basking on the sun-drenched riverbanks. Snorkel Playa Conchal made up of billions of crushed shells. Attend a weekend fiesta, featuring bull riding, traditional food, marimba music, and dancing. Tee-off at the course designed by Robert Trent Jones which meanders through a rolling terrain with breathtaking ocean views. To end the day sail along the shoreline as dolphins frolic beside you.

For thrill seekers and nature lovers alike enter the realms of the forest via a canopy tour. Get your adrenalin pumping inner tubing or riverafting on the Rio Negro. Visit Rincon De La Vieja to enjoy great hiking, waterfalls, boiling mud pots, sulpher vents and a large diversity of wildlife species. Get in the action of deep blue water fishing, targeting sailfish, marlin, yellowfin tuna, dorado, wahoo, roosterfish, and snapper. Experience the rich Guanacaste folklore and ancient Chorotega Indian traditions of pottery making in village of Guatil.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Playa Grande Estates (Playa Grande, Costa Rica):
We are a family of 'water babies' born and raised on the beach shores of Santa Barbara, CA. (Of course the grand kids also have this ocean gene). Once my children (Julie, J.C, and Mark) became of an age when we could all travel my husband and I would take them during summer vacation on a surf safari to an exotic destination somewhere in the world. This was not only for fun, but to spend quality time with each other as well as to expose and educate them about different cultures and customs. On a surfing safari to Costa Rica in '91 we instantly fell in love with the country, the kind and hospitable people, and the natural habitat. It was a paradise!! Long story short after returning to the States and raving to family and friends about this oasis a friend said he had the perfect property for our family in Playa Grande. My husband flew down a month later and purchased the property for me as my 50th B-Day present! Over the past 17 years both my family and friends lives have been significantly enhanced by the beauty of the 'Tico' people, the natural wonders that surrounds us and the 'Pura Vida' lifestyle. This means Pure Life, an expression of contentment, happiness, and satisfaction with ones life. It's this philosophy that ranks Costa Rica as one of the happiest places in the world!! We invite you along with your family and friends to visit and enjoy the surf, sand, sun, & experience the 'Pura Vida' life.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
fabulously situated upon the pristine white sandy beach of Playa Grande. Imagine surfing directly out the back door, scanning the trees for howler monkeys, sea shelling along the beach and gazing at the stars. In the privacy of your villa take delight swinging in a hammock, indulging in spa treatments, or simply smiling at a sunset.
