About the Property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Papagayo Village offers a slice of Costa Rican living unlike that offered at the big impersonal resorts. The property consists of a gated community of six rental villas providing from one to eight bedrooms, depending on the needs of your family or group. Papagayo Village is a great tropical/beach venue for family vacations, wedding parties, family reunions, and no stress get-aways. Many of our guests are exploring the possibilities of re-locating to Costa Rica and stay from 2 weeks to 2 months. We provide a special "stay and play" package for those considering investing in Costa Rica. All the casitas are furnished and the kitchens fully equipped. We have excellent wi-fi throughout the Village. Each casita comes with a large covered lanai to maximize outdoor living. We are confident you will have a great experience swimming in the 90 degree pool, picking fruit in the tropical garden, taking a siesta in one of many available hammocks, strolling the beach, barbequing poolside or watching a movie in our outdoor theater. We are an easy 10 minute walk to the best beach on the North Coast. The owner lives on site and is available to assist with planning your adventures while in Costa Rica.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Allen grew up on the shores of Puget Sound as a third generation native of Washington State, USA. Quite the sports enthusiast, Allen particularly enjoys playing tennis and golf. Allen graduated from California Lutheran University and Luther Seminary in St Paul, MN. He had served for 20 years as senior minister of the rapidly growing First Lutheran Community Church in Port Orchard, Washington. As one of the proprietors of Papagayo Village, Pastor Allen uses his considerable experience to facilitate and lead conferences, retreats, continuing education events, leadership groups, personal sabbaticals, weddings, renewals on the beach, marriage encounter, and volunteer and youth service trips. But what brings the pura vida to his new Costa Rican lifestyle is that he gets to show his guests to his favorite beaches and local hang outs as well as leading high adventure excursions into one of Gods most amazing natural wonderlands. Allen is married to the love of his life, Stefany Coronado, and they reside in the Village. Allen also stays busy pastoring Celebration Community Church in Playa Hermosa.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
Numerous beaches within minutes drive… and we have some secret favorites Monkey sightings are very common No alarm clocks necessary as howler monkeys and birds will wake you up in the morning hours Centralized swimming pool available all day and night (we don't limit the hours like hotels) Community barbecue (can be used to cook up the fish you catch that same day) Our own private well with clean, fresh water right out of the tap; no need for bottled water The friendliest staff in all of Costa Rica featuring Carmen (housekeeper) and Victor (gardener) 80% our clientele are returning guests… think about that! Owner and his family live on site in one of the 7 casitas (Allen, Stefany, and Emily) The Village has her own boat, Ms Meghan, and we would love to take you fishing. Perfect for groups or multi-family events with both private and group gathering options. Hammocks for siestas Some casitas have roof top terraces Patios abound Located in a beach community (don't worry about bringing formal clothing, or too much clothing, lol. Diverse towns and opportunities within the entire Guanacaste region We live here year round and have reputable connections for all excursions, car rentals, and properties Consistently the best value in Playa Hermosa (for those who still have to think about such things) What happens in the Village stays in the Village (goes without saying) Best of all, the hospitality you will receive is free of guarantee it!! We encourage you to join the ever expanding list of the Village People. Welcome to Papagayo Village!!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
All one story, ground level, easy walking. No hills to traverse or drive up and down Split A/C units in all bedrooms; perfect for sleeping in this tropical climate Horseshoe pit (need to supply your own beverage of optional) Private, gated, secure location (helps keep the iguanas in) Numerous beaches within minutes drive… and we have some secret favorites Monkey sightings are very common One all inclusive 10 mg download WiFi connection throughout the property Cable TV (Our moto is to come to CR and “unplug and reconnect”; but CNN is nice to have) Outdoor 100+ inch big screen for watching sporting events (Seahawk football, karaoke, etc) Outdoor audio sound system for music, etc. (bring your favorite play list) Wedding ceremonies and renewals available on the beach with Pastor Allen Celebration Community Church meets under the grapefruit tree every Sunday morning at 10AM! Grocery store down the street (fully stocked and priced similar to American grocery stores) Beach bars close by (self explanatory) Duty free alcohol (stock up at the airport, much cheaper) Opportunity for social work (or donations to locals in need)… especially our local elementary school Professional excursion presentations upon arrival (provided by Tico Tours) Diving certification/instructions available in the Village Pool by BA Divers; American queen size beds (not the smaller usual CR matrimonial size) Restaurants close by, but each casita has its own kitchen to help with the budget
