About the Property

Oceanfront Home, Steps to Beach, 4bd, 4.5 bath, Sleeps max 13, linens, maid pool

Welcome to our home, Casa Costa Palmera, steps away from the Pacific Ocean on the wonderful sands of Playa Grande, Costa Rica. Nestled in the coconut palm trees, built on the sands of the beach, Casa Costa Palmera (sleeps 13) is a vacation home that will leave you breathless. Travel + Leisure Magazine rated Playa Grande in the top 30 as one of the best beaches on earth. Casa Costa Palmera just so happens to be exactly 40 paces away from where the picture was taken for the magazine. Can swim and surf right outside the house. NO volcanic rock obstructions which limit water activities at other nearby beaches. We are located in Playa Grande 200 meters north of the Hotel Las Tortugas.

Costa Palmera has one of the best beachfront views on the entire coast. Whether you are coming to the gorgeous Central American country of Costa Rica for a great adventure or to get away from it all, we can accommodate you. The amazing hand crafted woodwork and the beautiful white granite counter tops inside this 4 bedroom beach home will truly make you feel like you are on a vacation for the memories. Directly adjacent to the home is one of a few homes with privately built-in swimming pools on the entire Playa Grande coastline, consisting of a swim up bar for the ones looking to lounge. Excellent maid service is included daily. We provide linens and beach/bath towels also included.
Cooking is available at an additional cost. Teo, a private masseuse can be hired and massages performed right on the beach.

Unlike many vacation properties, Costa Palmera is open and airy, doused with a contemporary touch in the interior of the home. This 4-bedroom beach house has furnishings in every room, along with state of the art air conditioning in all rooms. The kitchen and dining room face out towards the ocean leaving for an alluring view of the Pacific Ocean and magnificent sunsets at dusk. The house is equipped with wifi, making it possible for one to accomplish their daily tasks at work while basking in the sun and enjoying their tropical get away.

Also known as Las Baulas National Marine Park, Playa Grande is a sanctuary for the leatherback turtles whom every year return to the shoreline to lay their eggs. Because the beachfront is nationally protected, it is one of the cleanest beaches in the country. The shoreline is also relatively flat, making for a great place to take your shoes off and go for an evening walk after dinner. Whether you’re on a honeymoon or a surprise birthday vacation, Costa Palmera is equipped to handle everything. Along with the beautiful kitchen and bar area.

Known for its consistent world-class surf, Playa Grande is a surfer’s paradise. The winds are frequently off shore making for well-shaped waves and great surf. Unlike many prestigious surf breaks, the flat, sand-bottomed beach of Playa Grande makes it possible for surfers of all skill levels to have a great time. Surf lessons are just a phone call away right out in front of the villa, and there are boogie boards and foam surfboards available on the premises for residents of the house to use.

The things to do are left to the imagination to explore, including golfing, horseback riding, rain forest excursions, volcano tours, ATVing, fishing, sailing, and much more.

With the Playa Flamingo to the north and the quaint beach town of Tamarindo a few miles to the south, Playa Grande is at the epicenter of the Guanacaste. Tamarindo has a great nightlife on weekends and is a great place to have lively evening with friends and family. There are a few family owned restaurants near Costa Palmera, along with a fully equipped surf shop to rent surf boards and/or purchase apparel and many other items.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: In 2003, I came down to Costa Rica with my daughter during her high school trip. I was overwhelmed by adventures in the various diverse regions of the country. I decided to purchase in Playa Grande because I find this to be one of the most peaceful and beautiful spots in the world.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Grande Estates (Playa Grande, Costa Rica):
This property offers a comfortable, relaxing, private, beachfront location. I love all the natural wood in the house, the sounds of native birds and the smell and sound of the salty ocean.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private gates, indigenous woods used throughout the home, pool. Our staff, Maria and Orlando have been with us since owned and they are terrific. Shawna, our property manager will take care of our clients needs from airport pickups to and from the house, car rental, stocking the refrigerator with food and beverages before arrival, scheduling excursions, restaurant reservations, messages on the beach as well as surf lessons in front of the house and more. Our house and amazing staff bring many clients back every year. Perfect for family reunions, girls and guys getaways, honeymoon, wedding, executive retreats, surfing vacations, etc. All ages will enjoy.
