About The Owner

Why The Owner chose Palm Beach Estates

Great location so close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Clean. Well setup. We loved the screen porch and the hammocks above the garage. The caretakers checked in often and made it a great experience for us. Thanks Shawna!

  • 4 of 5

Awesome place. 2 minute walk to beach. No ac in house except bedrooms which was fine. Good functional kitchen. Small pool great for kids. Short walks to local restaurants and little store. Your in the middle of grande and tamarindo. They have to bikes. Every room has bunks except master bedroom. Nice screened in porch and nice grill for outdoor cooking. Twice a week housekeeping. Was a great time. Got married and everything was pretty much perfect. Thanks to the owners. Pura vida.

Comfortable Tropical Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families with a total of 9 people staying at this charming home. The space accommodated our group size very well with bedrooms and bathrooms for every family. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals ( and the occasional pina colada in the blender!). Of course we spent virtually every waking hour either at the beach - playa grande is one of our top favourites in Costa rica and only a few minutes walk away, or in the pool. The pool is a good size and we enjoyed many hours playing pool games or just relaxing away from the heat of the day. We loved the roof top patio on the garage - a great place for an afternoon siesta! There is something very special about the palm beach estate area. After a day or two here you are recognizing and chatting with everyone - happy hour at the Bula Bula or a delicious breakfast of Gallo pinto at the other local restaurants. Monkeys were often just across the street from us hooting in the trees, giant iguanas would take naps under the mango tree and hummingbirds and parrots were regular visitors as well. Thanks to property managers for speedy responses to any questions and helping to make our stay even more pleasurable. Wishing I was back in the sun already and we’ve only been home 1 week...

Perfect for relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent several wonderful vacations at Casa Kalumina--and will plan to come again. The property is perfect--close to the beach, restaurants, forest. It's a delight to awake to the calls of tropical birds and howler monkeys who inhabit the neighborhood. The pool and gardens are perfect for the ultimate relaxation. The property is well-kept and well-appointed with everything needed for a long-term stay. It is an easy drive from Liberia Airport. Just delightful all around!

Fantastic house, great locations, excellent for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Kalumina is a wonderfully appointed home with all the amenities you will need to enjoy your Costa Rica vacation. We had 10 men stay here very comfortably. The location is prime for either a surf vacation as we had, or if you just want to get away and relax. I highly recommend this home and I hope that I am fortunate enough to stay here again in the future.

perfect vibe and location

  • 4 of 5

Location and property really great! We Loved Costa Rica, and loved the outdoor patio where we spent most of our "At home" time. The guest house had lots of ants. Your cleaning crew was the Best!
