Casa Sylmar is a four bedroom four and a half bath direct Ocean Front Home, built right in the sand just steps from the water's edge. Providing daily maid service, sleeps up to fourteen people. Enjoy a delightful massage on your beach front terrace or relax in a hammock under the coconut palms.

From your living room, dining room, kitchen and terrace you will experience spectacular sunsets and stunning ocean and coastline views spanning more than seven miles with a beautiful back drop of the Guanacaste Mountain Range.

Casa Sylmar is said to be one of the most beautiful ocean front homes ever built in Costa Rica. Surrounded buy an abundance of coconut palms, almond trees, flowering hibiscus and banana trees. This two story Mediterranean style home has a unique style all of its own. All interior doors, window frames and cabinetry throughout are made from the finest Mahogany and other select woods from Costa Rica. All interior ceilings are pure white with double crown mouldings, creating a warm beach atmosphere with a touch of elegance. Hunter Ceiling Fans with remote control through out the entire house.

Bedroom 1 - First Floor: Two Singles Beds or One King (Your Choice)

Bedroom 2 - First Floor: Two Queen

Bedroom 3 - Second Floor: One Queen

Bedroom 4 - Second Floor (One Bedroom Apartment): Two Double

One Sofa Bed

The moment you step from your terrace you are in the sand, surrounded by Coconut Palms and Almendro Trees, just steps from the waters edge. The beach in front of the house has a flat sand bottom, without a doubt the best section of beach in Playa Grande, great for swimming, great for kids and lots of shade.

Whether inside or out on the beach you will see perfect waves breaking a short distance to the left and right of the house where you will usually see some of the best surfers in Costa Rica enjoying our pristine waves.

We rent boogie boards and beginner surf boards which are covered with thick protective foam and have soft flexible rubberized fins for maximum safety, very beginner friendly. We offer free surf lessons. Great fun for everyone.

Just a 15 minute stroll down the beach is Playa Carbon, one of Costa Rica’s rare black sand beaches. On the way you will see a giant 50 foot rock that sits in the water close to shore just a short distance to the right of the house where you can play in the rock tide pools which are filled with many shells and small marine life. Good shoreline fishing at the rock.

Playa Grande is one of the few beaches in the world where Giant Leather Back Turtles weighing up to 1,800 pounds and up to 9 feet long come at night to nest and lay their eggs. Many nights these amazing prehistoric animals nest directly in front of our homes. (A Must See).

We highly recommended you to experience Local Bull Riding at the local Fiestas (Typical Parties). You will see bull riding like you have never seen before. It's like going back to the Old West, but Costa Rican Style. There are a wide variety of activities and day trips available in our region. We can help you arrange.

Private guided day trips to one of our favorite rivers to see Crocodiles, Macaw, Parrots, and a variety of Exotic Birds, Giant Iguanas, White Face, and Howler Monkeys and many other animals. The trip ends with a typical Costa Rican Lunch (Excellent Food). On your trip back, you will stop in the small town of Guaitil,

famous for handmade pottery, fired on site in a Tico Style clay wood burning ovens.

Playa Grande is conveniently located between the towns of Tamarindo and Flamingo. Tamarindo is just 20 minutes to the South by car or a 35 minute beach walk to the river mouth that separates us from Tamarindo. For about one dollar, a boat taxi will take you across the river.

SECOND TIME STAYING AT CASA SYLMAR

  • 5 of 5
All I can say is this place is amazing. Beautiful home on private beach with excellent owners that work hard to make your vacation exceptional. I can't imagine going to Costa Rica and staying anywhere else after having stayed here twice now. You will love this place. We'll be going back again!

A SPOT IN PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the second half of a 2 week vacation with family. First week in Manuel Antonio with everyone and second week here with 5 of us. I have never been anywhere so beautiful and relaxing! Amazing views from sun up to sundown, some boogie boarding, snorkeling, and a short walk to a nice spot for drinks or dinner, and a trip to Tamarindo made the time spent here wonderful. Everything was extremely clean and kept up each day by Miriam and staff. Greg and Gabriella are perfect hosts and my advice is if you get a chance to stay here DO IT!

We had an awesome trip with our family to Casa Slymar. The pictures on the website are exactly what we experienced!! Beautiful house. The accommodations were perfect! Everyone had their own bedrooms and bath, the kitchen was very accommodating, and the patio was the ideal place for coffee in AM and the gorgeous sunsets in the evenings. The beaches are beautiful, we didn't want to leave. We ate all our meals at the house as we did not want to leave this beautiful setting. Greg & Gabriela were there to help us with any and everything. Ricoh & Mariam were also very very helpful! We loved it so much that we have reserved the Casa Sylmar two more times THIS year! Lovely place!!!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family (including 3 kids ages 10-16) spent an absolutely wonderful 5 nights at Casa Sylmar (spent the first part of the vacation at Arenal which was great also!) ! I would have stayed WAY longer if I could have! Everything about the house was perfect for us. Each of the kids had their own bed which is always a bonus and there are plenty of bathrooms and showers so nobody has to wait very long!! The staff was amazing and were on top of everything we needed right away! I loved waking up to the beach chairs set out on the beach for us and the laundry from the previous day clean and folded!! We would have breakfast and then go for a walk and come back and all of the dishes would be taken care of and things would be spic and span!! ...Doesn't get any better than that!!!
The beach is breath taking! The water was awesome and we had a wonderful time playing in the waves and building sand castles. Since we just came from Arenal we didn't do any excursions...just enjoyed the beach and all the wonderful things the property had to offer. We did walk to Tamarindo but we brought a cab back...one way was enough for us!! We also drove to Flamingo to look around. We ate at a couple of the local restaurants and have no complaints about any of them! By far our FAVORITE was Bula Bula. I think we went there 3 different afternoons for happy hour and appetizers. The staff was super fun to visit with and the kids were allowed to play in the pool while we enjoyed our yummy drinks. Taco Star was also a fun little place for a quick lunch!! A little hard to find at first but glad we searched it out!!
We only saw 2 monkeys the entire time we were in Costa Rica which was a little disappointing for me, but I was excited to see the ones we did!! I loved Costa Rica. Felt super safe the entire time and people were SO friendly. We used to go to Mexico often and after this vacation I don't care to ever go back to Mexico. Definitely looking forward to our next visit to Playa Grande. Hoping to take the grand parents and cousins next time!!

AWESOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Okay, there aren't many spots on the beaches of the world that have all you get at Playa Sylmar. Very uncrowded, pristine beach, with an amazing house sitting right on it. Walk off the terrace and right onto the beach at Playa Grande. House has its own, very kind, house keeping and security staff that clean up and wash clothes for you. Beach is truly awesome as there are only a few beachfront houses in Grande and this one is the most amazing. Honestly, there are no negatives here. Town of Grande is so cool. Owner is very good to work with as you book your vacation. He's very responsive to your questions and has a real passion for making your vacation all it can be. We'll be back, no question about it!!!

BETTER THAN A 5 STAR HOTEL!!

  • 5 of 5
This is the 2nd time for us in Costa Rica! We stayed at these properties both times and both times it has been amazing! We came with our adult sons, a friend of theirs and a fiance and of course Grandpa. We all have had a wonderful time. The house is wonderful, the bedrooms being air conditioned are great to go to at night. The fully equipped kitchen is nice so you can keep some food and beverages in the house for the week. We can't say enough how immaculate the property is and how wonderful the housekeeper, Miriam is....she is the BEST! We hope to certainly come back again in the future, we love it and would definitely stay here again.
