About the Property

Single Home, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, full Kitchen, Family Room, Loft, Sleeps 6.

Welcome to Playa Grande, a quiet laidback beach on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica known for its world class surfing, sailing and fishing, nesting area for the endangered Leatherback sea turtle and home to several Howler monkey troops. Our villa is a new, elegant, comfortable and spacious two story home just 600 feet from a stunning beach and pristine water in Marino Las Baulas National Park. This villa is one of five villas and offers the best in quality furniture/beds. Additionally this villa is the most private and quiet of the 5 villas. The modern, fully equipped kitchen opens to the dining area and family room offering a 42” flat screen TV w/DVD player and an adjacent rear courtyard providing abundant natural light. Off the Family Room is the Queen Bedroom with connecting bathroom and sliding glass door access to the courtyard.

On the second floor, at the top of the stairs, is a quiet Loft/Sitting area outfitted with another 42” flat screen and Futon couch. Off the Loft Area is the large Master Bedroom/bathroom which includes a furnished outdoor Veranda with ceiling fan, overlooking the salt water swimming pool below. A desk/office area and printer is also included in the Master bedroom. On the rear side of this bedroom is a smaller veranda with views of the surrounding rain forest where you’ll see tropical birds and an occasional family of Howler Monkeys. Finally, the Twin bedroom with picture window(which makes you feel as if you're in a tree house), bathroom and full laundry are also located on this floor.

This villa is the perfect place to come back to after a day of adventures or relaxing. The Costa Rican people are friendly, the food is fresh, the (Imperial) beer is excellent and the coffee is……Costa Rican. Playa Grande is a great place to do any number of exciting and interesting activities even if one of those happens to be..... doing absolutely nothing.

This villa comes with all the amenities that you need including items that reduce your need to go shopping (i.e. paper supplies). In fact - let us do the shopping for you so you can relax.

The SHORT NOTICE SPECIAL rate is for two people only and does not apply to holiday weeks.

Our villa is currently being offered for sale. Owner financing is available.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Mary Ann and I currently live in Southern Maryland having moved here after 30 years living in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Mary Ann is now a retired bookkeeper/secretary. Bob is an RF Test Engineer employed with a government contractor supporting projects at a local Naval Air Station as a Senior Systems Analyst . We became familiar with Playa Grande through friends, Tom and Freda Rothermel of Tempe, AZ, who own Villas Costa Grande #2 (Villa Bougainvillea).

Why Playa Grande Estates (Playa Grande, Costa Rica):
We chose this villa because of its location close to the Pacific Ocean next to a beautiful, mostly deserted beach in Marino Las Baulas National Park. The villa is north of Playa Grande village where it is more quiet and peaceful. Many good restaurants, a surf shop with bicycle rentals, a food market and medical facilities are nearby. At the same time, a more active tourist community with shops, restaurants and hotels can be found twenty minutes away in the city of Tamarindo. If you are a bit more adventurous, you can also visit Tamarindo by walking the length of Playa Grande beach and taking the ferry across the Tamarindo Estuary. Estuary wildlife tours are also available at very reasonable prices.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We found that Villa #3 was the most private location in the complex and the only home with an outdoor courtyard adjoining the Family Room. This space, combined with the multiple sliding glass doors covering the back wall of the Family Room, provides beautiful natural light throughout the day. We also saw that the upstairs Loft/Sitting Area and the outdoor Veranda would be perfect spots for quiet time, reading, morning coffee and evening drinks. Please read the reviews written by our renters on this web page. Thank you.
