Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 13, 2015
Oceanfront Home, Steps From The Beach, 4bd, 4.5 bath, Sleeps max 13

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.

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.

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, there is also a bar in the front of the house that can be fully stocked at your request, in addition.

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 2 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.

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.

Our Vacation to Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Casa Costa Palmera is a little slice of Heaven. Our family had the best time on this amazing beach and in this amazing house. We hired Maria to cook our meals (the best decision ever) and she is an amazing cook. We also used the food stocking service (another perfect decision) and Alyssa brought us our food so we didn't have to waste time at the grocery store. Orlando and Maria are absolutely amazing, kind, and wonderful people. They made us feel welcomed and like royalty. The beach is absolutely splendid and we spent every day swimming or body boarding in the surf. We walked on the beach every morning and were on the beach every evening till sunset. We went snorkeling at Playa Carbon as well which is something that you definitely shouldn't miss when you visit. Alyssa, our concierge, helped set up several tours and trips for us including ziplining and fishing. She was so amazing to work with. We cannot wait to go back! This was the best vacation our family has ever been on! Thank you so much Alyssa, Maria, and Orlando!

Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5
The property is right on the beach. On our arrival, the lounge chairs and hammocks were already set up and waiting. The house was very comfortable with each bedroom having its own bathroom. Also, all bedrooms had air conditioning which made sleeping more comfortable. Maria and Orlando take very good care of the house. We chose to have Maria cook dinners each night for us. The food was always delicious. The property manager was very helpful and knowledgable about local site seeing adventures and excursions. We suggest the day trip to Rincon De La Vieja National Park for hiking, horseback riding, white water tubing, zip lining, mud baths and heated pools. Relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

Steps to the Beach

  • 5 of 5
We were there over the Christmas holidays. Bedrooms and bathrooms were all great. It was nice for each room to have an ensuite. Soft goods were all excellent ie sheets, glassware, towels etc. Maria and Orlando were lovely and we had Maria cook our breakfast and lunches. The place is right on the beach and during the holidays there were people right in front of our place. At first we were a bit concerned but we eased right in and enjoyed being part of all these holidaying families. We considered this a plus. The pool is small but private and refreshing. We echo previous comments, the outdoor dining chairs are quite uncomfortable and they should proper seating for 8. We had six dining chairs and 2 lawn chairs so not too comfortable. Everyday Orlando set up our lounge chairs and Hammocks, saving us a good spot on the beach. That was great. We enjoyed postcard perfect sunsets every night!

Amazing beach location

  • 4 of 5
Amazing location right on the beach of Playa Grande! The housekeeper and cook, Maria, did a phenomenal job keeping the house clean and providing delicious meals! Bedrooms had A/C which made a big difference! Pool was small but nice to have. Only improvement I would suggest is some comfy outside chairs on the porch to watch the gorgeous sunsets from!

Fantastic Week!

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommend this property. Just steps from the Pacific. Went on a girl's week with friends. House is well kept and clean. Bedrooms, each with a separate bath, were nice and comfortable. Local cable has several English speaking channels for anyone who wants to keep up with the news/shows. Maria, onsite housekeeper, is wonderful. She prepared our meals at a nominal cost which enabled us to enjoy all available time. However, you can do your own cooking if you desire. The ability to coordinate for groceries and drinks to be available upon our arrival was an added pleasure. Just sitting by the ocean was reward in itself, but the coordinated trips for a catamaran tour, local National Park to lounge in geothermal pools, and trips to town made it a wonderful experience. Plenty to do for adventure seekers or those who simply want to relax. Several great restaurants are within a short walking distance. Hopefully, will be able to go back with my family and friends. I know they would love it!
