About the Property
Brand-new, Comprehensively Outfitted 2BR, 3BA Beachfront Villa
Casa Chocolate, as the name implies, is decorated in a chocolate theme. A careful and patient collection process for the art pieces has made for an entertaining, cheerful and pretty look for the entire villa. Modern contemporary furniture with a tropical flair is not just delightful to look at, it is very comfortable as well.
A beautifully appointed, comprehensively equipped gourmet kitchen lets you prepare spectacular meals. Outfitted with high-end Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, and all the cooking gadgets one could possibly imagine. This kitchen is a chef's dream!
Dimmable LED lighting throughout the villa allows for great lighting with very little heat; this is also another unique feature of Casa Chocolate.
Casa Chocolate is also equipped with the latest technology and communications goodies: High-speed WiFi and wired Internet, free unlimited long distance calling, Smart TVs in every room; digital cable, Apple TV, Blu-Ray and a high-quality Home Theater system in the living room. There are several usb charger-equipped power outlets downstairs and upstairs.
The living room also doubles as a sleeping area with a Queen-size sleeper sofa. A complete downstairs bathroom makes it very comfortable to sleep downstairs. The downstairs porch is the best on the property, with a wonderful swing chair, a lounger and two easy chairs with footstools. Fully folding windows allow opening to the entire width of the villa.
The Master Bedroom is equipped with a King-size Tempur-Pedic bed, brand new ultra-quiet AC, ceiling fan, and Breakfast Station with mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker. 55-inch 3D television with Blu-Ray player. The en-suite bathroom is done in luxurious Costa Rican stone and has an enclosed multi-head shower and commode, plus a large jetted tub. Dual sinks with great lighting and lots of storage space. Off the Master bathroom is the walk-in closet. The view from the Master Bedroom is stunning, and the fully folding windows open up to the entire width of the room out to a spacious balcony. Telescopic bug screens let in the soothing ocean sounds while keeping the critters out while you sleep.
Bedroom 2 has a super comfortable Queen-size bed, 40 inch smart TV, ceiling fan and en-suite bathroom appointed with beautiful native stone. It has also just been fitted with a new, ultra quiet AC system. It also offers a large loft that sleeps one adult or two kids. The loft's lighting can be controlled from up in the loft or down in the bedroom.
The Palms complex also boasts a complete oceanside gym, round pool, spectacular infinity pool with bar and food service, and a BBQ area with two large professional Weber grills. Lots of beachfront and poolside seating with umbrellas for the free use of our guests.
Don’t feel like cooking? Many terrific restaurants are only minutes away. If you feel like really indulging yourself, let The Palms' in-house chef service prepare and serve you a fabulous gourmet meal in the villa or by torchlight right by the beach.
The Palms also offers the free use of sea kayaks, boogie boards, surfboards and snorkeling gear to our guests. Pool toys aplenty are available for the kids.
Read the reviews! Every guest we've had has been enchanted and wants to return as soon as possible. From the owner to every last member of the staff at The Palms, we make it our mission that your stay at Casa Chocolate is among the best vacations you've ever experienced.
Two-week (or longer) stays always get a free night!

About the owner: Chocolate maker and chocolatier, owner and operator of Danta Chocolate in Guatemala.
Why the Owner Chose Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica:
Always loved Costa Rica as an investment destination, and The Palms, with its unique beachfront ownership (only 3% of Costa Rica's oceanfront is titled property) seemed like the perfect choice. The clincher was the super-short, 30-second walk to fabulous Flamingo Beach! The bonus is The Palms' amazing staff, who make you feel like you're staying at the finest 5-star resort.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Since The Palms is a private residence club, guests get to reap the benefits of staying at a private condo, while getting the services and amenities of a luxury hotel. The Palms only has 34 villas, so no matter how full it is, there's always ample space in the property to feel uncrowded and at ease.
