vacation rental description

This casa is the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy the warm breezes of the Costa Rican coast. The neighborhood of Palm Beach Estates is a quiet, gated community with onsite security, located within a lush national park. The peaceful, uncrowded beach of Playa Grande is covered with beautiful shells just waiting to be discovered. And if you enjoy wave riding, our beach has one of the best surf breaks in the country! Casa de Amigos is a spacious, uniquely designed property that was recently renovated to maximize the vacation experience for larger groups. The house boasts several living spaces for multiple activities yet maintains an open, interactive floorplan for the ease of group entertainment. Its two separate living rooms, centered in the house, provide a television with DVD player, plus a central stereo with CD player & IPOD Dock. These rooms flow to the fully equipped kitchen, so you may curl up with a good book undisturbed while other group members cook dinner or watch a movie.

The floorplan includes four bedroom suites – all conveniently positioned off the two main living areas. Each bedroom has its own internal bathroom, providing exceptional privacy from the rest of the group. All bathrooms have tiled showers and separate vanities. Three bedrooms have king-size beds with premium luxury mattresses. One bedroom has a queen size bed plus a set of twin bunks (affectionately called “the kids room”). All bedrooms have separate AC units and ceiling fans. Three of the four rooms have TV with cable.

The kitchen is the perfect gathering place for any time of day. Fully equipped with stainless steel refrigerator, cooktop, microwave and oven, it provides all the modern conveniences of home. There is seating for six at the breakfast bar, plus an additional seating for six at the dinette area. Its gorgeous dark wood cabinetry and granite countertops are two luxurious accents of this upscale property.

With regard to luxury, this home’s remarkable function cannot overshadow its equally beautiful form. Its interior design is the distinct collaboration of its stateside owners. From its incredible wood-covered, vaulted ceilings to its playful light colored sofas, every design element is precisely chosen. Combining the influences of coastal South Carolina with the local art of Costa Rica and Nicaragua, the interior of this property conveys the perfect blend of “tropical chic”.

And once you have taken the opportunity to absorb the entire list of “inside” delights, you won’t want to miss its equally impressive outside amenities. One of the most obvious benefits of this property is its close proximity to the ocean. Situated directly in front of the beach access, it is only steps from the Great Pacific and all of its many activities. You may also prefer to take your choice of a refreshing plunge in the private swimming pool, or simply kick back in a lounge chair to catch some rays amid the tropical landscape of the backyard. Or perhaps relaxing in the cool water on a “pool stool” while sipping an ice-cold fruit smoothie might be most appealing.

traveler reviews for this playa grande house rental

Great family retreat

Review submitted: February 4, 2014   Date of arrival: January 13, 2014

We just finished staying here for three weeks and loved it. Excellent house for a large family or a few couples to share. Three large master bedrooms and a fourth kid room with a double and a bunkbed. We got to know one of the owners, Mark, and really appreciated his easygoing, friendly personality. Surfing was perfect and our many kids couldn't get enough of the large beautiful pool area. Another huge plus was the covered upstairs outdoor eating area where we ate most every night. Went deep sea fishing and caught enough Mahi to feed our large party every night for 10 days. Best fish tacos ever. Thanks again Mark.

BEST VACATION/HONEYMOON EVER!!!!!!!!!!

Review submitted: July 15, 2013   Date of arrival: May 10, 2013

I went here (PARADISE) for my honeymoon and I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The house has everything possible: everything you need to cook, beautiful pool, ocean view, towels, security system, internet, beautiful spacious rooms, phone, air conditioning/TVs in every room.

The house stayed clean with the amazing help of Natalie. She knows the area more than anybody and provides information on things to do such as activities, food and must sees during your stay. She will book any activity for you and checks up on you everyday. She is avaialble 24/7 if you need anything and always provides the nicest service. She set up a massage for me at the house. I didnt have to leave!!! They came and set up outside by the pool. It was the most relaxing thing I have ever experienced. I can honestly say she 100% became my friend when I left.

The house is super close to a convienent store than has all your essentials. We would go there for snacks, items for cooking, drinks, etc. The house is also close to many restuarants. Our favorite was Bula Bula. My husband and I celebrated our birthdays there the first night and went back there everyday. The food is fresh, unique and plenty. You will not leave hungry. The wal-tini is one of the best drinks I have ever had!!! All in all this restuarant provided amazing food, service, atmosphere and music. You will leave HAPPY :) Also, if you do not feel like leaving the house and you dont want to cook, many places deliver. We had sushi and pizza delivered and it was fresh and amazing!! We spent two full days just at the house, there was no need to leave. The huge pool with bar seats makes you not want to leave. It is paradise in your backyard!!!!!

The house is across the water from Tamarindo which provides amazing shops, food, spas, entertainment and activities. I would suggest zip-lining, horse back riding, hot springs, boat ride (you will see monkeys, cows, horses, alligators, it will amaze you) and surfing (best ever)!!!! Also, be prepared to see beautiful turtles and shells!!!!!!

There is no need to rent a car!!!! Everything is walking distance and if its not (airport, activities) transportation is provided at a cheap price.

All in all, this was the best experience my husband and I have ever had. We never want to vacation anywhere else. There is not one thing we would change!!!! We plan to make this a tradition. The memories and friendships we created will last a lifetime and we cant wait to go back!!!!!!!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Great Family Option in Playa Grande

Review submitted: May 4, 2013   Date of arrival: March 18, 2013

An outstanding option in Playa Grande for those looking to escape the crowds, but still have a premium place to stay.

The home is well taken care of and our host Natalie was very gracious and did a great job of getting us settled in. The location was premium with just a short 50 meter walk up the path to the beach. This part of Playa is known for some more aggressive wave action and we were unsure if it would be too much for the kids. However, we could not have been happier and really enjoyed being on the more active part of the ocean with the waves providing a ton of fun for surfing and boogie boarding. It's actually quite shallow in this area, and the kids spent a good part of the day just playing in the waves, and by the end of the week couldn't imagine it being any other way. The pool is top shelf and provided a fantastic break in the daytime heat or evening dip. Something of note, is that the home is very well secured with a private gate and security system which was an added bonus for those concerned in that regard.

Tamarindo is actually just a short walk up the beach and accessible by the water taxi which made for a nice half day trip into town. Plenty of opportunity to look for shells as the beach just seemed to go forever. Sunsets were amazing.

There are a couple of local eateries right down the street by short walk, and a few more options within 10 minute car ride. There is also a small market to pick up a few essentials that you might need during your stay. Surfing, Boogie Boarding, Ocean Sunsets, shells, beaches, pool, and a ton of relaxation.....not sure what else one needs! Thanks to Casa and team for a great trip.
