About the property

Walk to beach just 3 minutes - Pool, 3 Bedrms, 3 Bathrms, 2 Living Rms - Sleeps

Relax and enjoy paradise - your hardest decision will be whether to go left or right on the beach. Either way - you can walk for an hour or more. Truly a big beach!

We are located just a one minute walk back from the 'Rock' on Playa Grande that separates Playa Grande and Playa Ventanas. Along Playa Grande are several surf peaks for both long and short boarders, stand up paddle boards and even boogie boarders. Be sure to watch for howler monkey as they travel along the back of the villas.

Villa Bougainvillea has 3 bedrooms (King, Queen and 2 twins), 3 bathrooms, 2 living areas and a full size kitchen. This villa also has 2 flatpanel TV's - one for each living area. Each room has a separate AC unit and ceiling fans so you can adjust for your own personal comfort level. The common area of Villas Costa Grande has an outdoor shower and swimming pool.

Enjoy the comfort in the details at Villa Bougainvillea - a master bath with dual vanity sinks, living areas with real

sofas ( not cushions on concrete) and area rugs for casual elegance, quality mattresses and a kitchen with extra touches such as a waffle maker, crock pot, and ice cream maker.

For a sleepy little town, Playa Grande has 7 restaurants, a pulperia ( mini grocery store), surf shop, and a dentist and medical office all in walking distance.

The closest airport is Liberia (LIR).

About Owner/Manager

We bought Villa Bougainvillea in 2008 after falling in love with Costa Rica in 2005.

Freda was the Regional Director for Conde Nast Johansens in Central America. Her knowledge of hospitality and design can be seen in the details of Villa Bougainvillea. She also served on the

Pro Mejoras de Playa Grande ( small city council) and the ASADA de Playa Grande ( local water board). Their children attended La Paz - a local non profit bilingual school.

The photo is our beloved Ringo. He greeted many guests while we were living the dream at the beach.

Owner/Manager purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Owner/Manager chose Playa Grande Estates

Great location so close to the beach. Excellent surf spot right by

the rock which separates Playa Grande from Playa Ventana.

If you are driving - this villa is half way between Tamarindo and Flamingo. So perfect for the day adventures.

What makes this townhome unique

Villas Costa Grande is a lovely collection of 5 villas around a common pool. This is great if you need more accommodations for your group or family. Rent 2 or 3 villas. Relax enjoy and return ;)

Great location and excellent amenities

  • 5 of 5

So close to the beach. Enjoyed walking to the "rock" and even all the way to Tamarindo. The layout is great - two living rooms with TV to relax in. Bedrooms are so comfortable. Loved eating at RipJack's, Kikes, El Huerto and Cafe del Pueblo. If there is live music at the Wil-Mart - you must go.

Playa Grande Perfection

  • 5 of 5

New, clean, modern, secure. GREAT value, short, pleasant walk through the forest to one of the finest, least crowded beaches in Costa Rica. Very responsive and reasonable owner and concierge. Hands down our best vacation rental in Costa Rica to date, and we've been down three times!

Incredible location, very nicely furnished.

  • 5 of 5

Located in a quiet, beautiful location (surrounded by national park) with a three minute walk to the beach. The owner made every effort to accommodate us and make sure we had a perfect stay. Tastefully finished with all the amenities. My family and I look forward to a return visit next year.
