About Sharr Lawrence

My husband and I have been living in Palm Beach, Playa Grande for coming up 10 years now. We have two children who both attended school in Costa Rica. We travel more in the recent years but return regularly to upgrade and check on our properties here. It is truly a special place for us.

Sharr Lawrence purchased this house in 2014

Why Sharr Lawrence chose Palm Beach Estates

At Casa Rustica we saw the potential to create a destination for travelers that we always seek when we go on vacation. A place that is well kept, passionately cared for and feels a part of the nature and its surroundings.

What makes this house unique

We are all beach lovers with a passion for all things natural. We created our dream cottages at Casa Rustica with a modern beach theme whilst still keeping all things natural. Unique art pieces and colors make this house special.

Its location and setting being close to the beach surrounded by large garden spaces and big trees cannot be surpassed. We feel confident you will love it as much as we do.

It is close to the beach, only a few minutes walk. The setting is open and spacious with large trees. Privacy, peace and quiet are ideal for people who want to relax.

Perfect Couples get-away!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect! My husband and I were trying to find a nice quiet get-away to reconnect and find some peace. This is it! While staying we ventured out to other places that were horribly crowded and loud, and everytime, all I could say, was "Man, we definitely made the right decision to stay where we did! There are 4 restaurants within walking distance, that were all amazing! You could easily stay your whole vacation within the gated community! The only downside was that the bed and pillows were a little uncomfortable. Out of everything that was so wonderful, I have to say one of the best parts is the property manager, Kristi! She went above and beyond to answer questions, give advice, book trips, and make sure we were happy. She is the best! I will definitely be returning!

Enjoyed out stay at Casa Rustica!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Rustica. Kristy the manager welcomed us from the start, gave us tons of helpful advice and even heped us with excursions. The casa was adorable. Perfect fro two people anymore then that it would be two small.We stayed at two locations durning our trip and loved Playa Grande. We felt safe and enjoyed the food that the local restaurants had to offer.We even got in touch with the local fisherman who brought us delicious shrimp and tuna. The beach was also very close and relaxing.

Wonderful Place

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice location. There are a few restaurants and a grocery within walking distance. The beach is also just a 5 minute walk away.

Kristi, the concierge was absolutely wonderful. She arranged a zip line tour for us and was very helpful in giving us info about the surrounding area.

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing place, this is a great choice.

Romantic getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Shame on me for waiting so long to write this review. My wife and I stayed at this quaint little casa back in 2015 while celebrating our 25 year anniversary. It was just what we were looking for. Walking distance to the beach, several restaurants and a mini grocery store, Wilmart. The Casa had everything we needed to cook and have a comfortable evening inside or relax outside on the patio and take in the wildlife activity. Don’t miss the opportunity of an evening outdoor shower. AC was a life saver. WIFI was lightning fast. We never bothered with the TV and when you get there you will understand. My wife and I are going back to Costa Rica for 15 days and we want our last 5 to be at Casa Rustica. Thanks Sharr and Hazel for making this gem so special and hope to see you soon.

Absolutely lovely vacation in an impressive house

  • 5 of 5

Although it was the off-season, our stay at Casa Rustica was perfect! The house was exactly as described, and the transfer to and from the airport which was coordinated by Sharr was flawless. My wife and I will definitely be returning to this wonderful location. The beach was a quick five minute walk from the house, and the on-site manager Murat was exceptionally helpful and assisted us with coordinating activities (we even rented surfboards from him!). My wife and I will recommend booking through Sharr's company to all of our friends and family. You won't regret staying at Casa Rustica. The wireless internet was just as fast as it is in our home in Virginia, and the water was nice and hot. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and pots/pans, and all of the appliances worked perfectly. I wish we were back there now!
