“Absolutely Fabulous Vacation” We took our parents for their 50th anniversary. The Villa was perfect for our family of 13 people (7 adults, two teens and 4 kids), and was so clean and beautiful. Marianela, and the staff on the grounds were helpful, attentive and so accommodating. The highlight for us was having Kimberley and Vanessa prepare the delicious meals which freed us up to relax, surf, boogie board, turtle and bird watch and enjoy lots of great family time. Drinking our delicious coffee first thing in the morning overlooking Playa Grande was the best part of the day!

“Fabulous Beach Location” Went down with our family for 8 days...enjoyed every aspect of the the Country, the Beach and the House. My image is of Hawaii...60 years ago! The jungle comes right down to the beach....not all the roads are paved...the beach is undeveloped and unspoiled, the water is warm, the people are friendly. The house is great for one or more families (be advised the upstairs does not come with it..there is no TV which is a blessing...but there is internet)A great addition is the assistance of Andreas the caretaker. Great guy! Makes your coffee, Mai Tais, mean breakfast if you want him too and he knows what is best about the area. We hope to go back!

About Playa Grande

The beach of Playa Grande in Costa Rica is one of the premier nesting areas for leatherback sea turtles. Year after year, turtles follow an ancient call and come ashore to lay their clutches of eggs in the soft sand here. But, Playa Grande is not only a beautiful natural preserve and a place to witness an inspiring eternal ritual. It's also a place to surf. The waves on the protected beach of Playa Grande are world renowned for their height and ferocity, especially when the wind is strong and the tide is high. Surfers are drawn here from all over the world to face the challenge.

Here are some additional suggestions for things to do during your visit to Playa Grande:

  • Hike the trails: Explore the trails of the Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas. Learn more about the fragile estuarial ecosystems here and see glimpses of elusive birds and native wildlife.
  • Take a sailing excursion: Charter sailboat trips are easy to reserve here and this is a great way to see dolphins, go sport fishing, and watch breathtaking sunsets.
  • Go scuba diving or snorkeling: The reefs around the protected Las Baulas National Marine Park are stunning places to interact with color fish, turtles and a variety of undersea life.
  • Enjoy the nightlife in Tamarindo: Just across the bay, the bars and restaurants in Tamarindo are world class and provide a perfect ambiance for meeting new people or reconnecting with your own traveling companions.
  • Play on the beach: Nearby Tamarindo also offers perfect beaches of sugary sand and blue waves where you can swim, go parasailing, rent a sea kayak or just bask in the golden sun and relax.
  • Take a surf lesson: If you aren't a professional surfer yet but you'd like to give it a try, there are plenty of outfits here than can help you get started.

It's easy to find a vacation rental for whenever you decide to visit Playa Grande. Rent a condo, villa or vacation home on the occupied side of the mangrove bogs, and then take a boat across during the day in order to explore the nature preserve and protected sea turtle habitats.

CASA TAMARINDO, PLAYA GRANDE
Great find near Playa Grande

My husband and I live in Nuevo Arenal, Costa Rica but were looking for a trip to the beach to get out of the rain. We looked at many sites online and came across this place. The location sounded good and the price was right so we booked it. The owner communicated quickly before our arrival and met us as soon as we arrived. He was also close by in case we needed anything during our stay. We were very pleasantly surprised with the house. The house is just as it was shown in the pictures. It was well furnished including plenty of towels. The owner even provided little soaps and shampoos which is not always the case. The living room was very comfortable and included wifi, a nice sized flat screen, and a great audio system. The main bedroom had a full sized bed and the 2nd bedroom included 2 sets of bunk beds. We were a little concerned about it's proximity to the bar/restaurant for noise reasons. But we never heard a thing coming from the bar! The area is not a "hot spot" for night life like it's neighbor Tamarindo, but we prefer that. It was an easy walk to the beach and had plenty of good restaurants near by. Outside of Playa Grande (which is a huge beach), there are many other wonderful beaches within a short drive. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.see more
Ultimate Oceanfront Location, Villa Olivia
We walked into paradise!

I just returned from a 10 day stay in Villa Olivia and Casa Mirage. I took my entire family, 27 total. The ages were from 8 to 78 (me). My goal in my later years is to "make memories". All I can say is the most special memories were made in Playa Grande. The view from the villas were amazing. We saw the most beautiful sunsets ever. The surfers said it was fabulous and not crowded. The boogie boarders had a blast, the includes me. I even got a few good waves for body surfing. Now to the "jewel" of all. Kimberly. She cooked every nite for 27, plus a few nights 6 more friends came to dinner. She is a sweetheart and excellent cook. We'd make a menu up for 3 days at a time & then grocery shop for her and sometimes with her. She is particular on the quality of the food. Has to be fresh! My children hired an excellent photographer to take photos of the family. It was their thank you to me. I'd gladly share names and contact information for tours, drivers, etc. We feel we found honest & fair people. Our catamaran outing was outstanding. Kimberly suggested that one. As you can tell, I could go on and on. Loved every minute of every day and I do hope to return.see more
