About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Villa Las Palmas is located on beautiful Playa Palada Beach our Condo is 100 yard walk (which is as close as you can build from the high water line)to the beach. The Condo has a fully equipped kitchen, linens, off street parking, washer & dryer. Maid service is available for a fee.

The grounds are landscaped to preserve the natural beauty of Costa Rica. The sunsets are spectacular from our beach. The wildlife abounds, colorful tropical birds, iguanas, howler monkeys provide a great introduction to Costa Rica.

The fishing is as good as it gets, I live on the west cost of Florida have a nice boat, but I live to fish in Costa Rica. I had a charter fishing business back in the late 90's and I can fix you up with one of the fishing captains that I know in Garza.

About The Owner

I lived in Nosara for 4 years in the late 90's,I fell in love with Costa Rica over 17 years ago, I have owned the condo on Palata Beach for 8 years. We spend about 2 months a year here. I own a Real Estate business in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Playa Guiones

We love the area because of the remoteness which keeps it from getting too crowded with tourists, having grown up in Florida in the 40's & 50's it makes me think of a time you could go to the beach and be the only one there.

What makes this condo unique

The sunsets at the beach are incredible.

Great location, great setup

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this complex several times and will be sure to return. Woody is great, check in and out is a breeze. The full timers are very welcoming. The beach access is second to none. It helps that Bar Olgas is just a short walk down the beach. My wife spent her day at yoga and I spent my days fishing. Always have great success fishing with my great friend Capt Chimpi. You won't be disappointed. A vehicle is recommended.

Wonderful vacation home on a beautiful beach.

  • 4 of 5

We fully agree with all the previous positive reviews, so will not repeat them. A couple of small hiccups during our stay - wi-fi was limited to the pool area, we had several hours without power, and no water for half a day (thus 4 stars, not 5), but we still plan to return when we can. It's a great location, pleasant people, and all in all a very enjoyable vacation experience.

Perfect, peaceful,amazing location and affordable.

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Costa Rica and it was so relaxing and fun. The condo was clean,super spacious,great price and the owner was so helpful.The other condo owners were great and welcoming too......they all just welcomed us into their community.The pool was perfect and the beach is just a 2 minute walk and is quiet and clean.

The wi-fi never worked well and it would be great if there was some boogy boards and other stuff to use.

Our Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We are returning to Villa Las Palmas for the 3rd time. We absolutely love the area, the people, and the condo. The beach and the pool are right outside your door, and the beach goes for miles. There is wonderful wildlife - Howlers, parrots, butterflies, and more. There are some good restaurants in the neighborhood and many more in Guiones and Nosara. We didn't have a car the last time we were there except when we needed to go to the Super Nosara store or to take a side trip. We walked on the beach every day and walked to the bank, Guiones, and the Nature Preserve. Venders come several times a week: a bakery truck, a produce truck, and a tica on a motorcycle who brings local foods. We went out to the bat cave down the beach at low tide and took a bird watching boat trip up the Rio Negra. We also kayaked up the Rio Negra. Oh, there is also a great zip line. If you don't want a fancy resort with too many people, this is the place to be. We just relaxed and enjoyed.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

I traveled as a total novice to this area. The condo owner Woody was so communicative and helpful to me right from the start that it gave me the confidence to make this trip. The roads were a bit of a shock to a suburbs-dweller like myself, but with a 4-wheel drive vehicle we soon got used to the driving and the road signs. Do not make the trip to the condo at night...would be very hard to find. The Los Palmos condos are perfect; there is a private beach in the 'backyard' along with a pool right outside your door. The condo was stocked with everything we needed, but not overly fancy ... just vacation perfect. And, a great location - walking distance to two restaurants (one with excellent food and one right on the beach), as well as easy driving to many of the area attractions. If you are looking for nightlife - this is not the place. This is for nature lovers and those who want to take a deep breath, kick back, and enjoy the scenery (as well as the surfing, swimming, nature walks/tours, ziplining, fishing). Highly recommend Woody's condo at Los Palmos if you are thinking of traveling to this area.

Costa Rica - Guiones / Pelada

  • 5 of 5

If you are traveling to Nosara and looking for a place to stay which access to a beach by foot, Woody's place is the ideal set up. The Las Palmas Condo is located in a secluded yet accessible area - very close to 2 great restaurants, an amazing gelato store, and the beach is to die for!!! The two best things to do are wake up early for a beach walk as the sun is rising and enjoy sunset cocktails on the beach watching the sun set. The beach is stunning, quiet, private, and not crowded. The condo is a perfect, spacious set up, plenty of space for a couple, and great for even 2 couples. My boyfriend and I enjoyed meeting all of the friendly neighbors who live in the condo community for part of the year. All very friendly and helpful! We can't wait to go back to Nosara!!
