vacation rental description

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 10) 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 the only privately built-in swimming pools on the entire Playa Grande coastline, consisting of a swim up bar for the ones looking to lounge, and a secluded whirlpool with a waterfall for those who are seeking a more intimate paradise. Excellent maid service is included and your own personal cook is available upon request for 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.

traveler reviews for this playa grande house rental

Fantastic Week!

Review submitted: December 27, 2013   Date of arrival: December 8, 2013

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!

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

Fantastic Property

Review submitted: July 8, 2013   Date of arrival: June 7, 2013

What a fantastic place to stay! The facilities were just as advertised and the location is just what we were looking for. We were looking for a somewhat secluded spot that would allow us to relax with just our family but still be close enough to a town to eat and go on excursions. There are other residences nearby and the area is a popular surf spot - but it was never too crowded. The property was clean and very well maintained. The on premise housekeeper was very nice and prepared us two of the best meals we had on the entire trip. Our contact at Senorita Casitas proved to be invaluable as she booked numerous excursions, recommended restaurants, and set up a car rental (we had read about some difficulties in dealing with car rental companies). All of this went very smoothly and allowed us to enjoy our time.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: We love to hear how much our guests enjoy themselves at the house. It is gratifying to have many returning clients. Maria and Orlando are the stars at the house. Thanks for taking to time to write about your experience at Casa Costa Palmera. We hope you return soon.

Awesome house and beach but bring life jackets for anyone going in past our waist!

Review submitted: June 11, 2013   Date of arrival: June 1, 2013

Awesome! The house is perfect!! Maria and her hubs were great!! Didn't wash one dish the whole week! Maria cooked and that was the best! Just got to relax and let someone else worry about lunch!
Went with parents and twin 9 year old boys (who are 4'10 and 85 pounds!) and something told me to bring life jackets!! Thank GOD I did. My son and father almost drown! A surfer rescued them! It's amazing there but remember the water is known for having big surf.. We don't surf but water and beach were great!! Just be prepare and keep your eyes out! And bring life jackets!! Would defiantly recommend! Thanks Alyssa for getting our things set up and the grocery service was a perfect touch!
