Overview

Playa Grande Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom, 5.5 bathrooms with ocean and mountain views

Casa Blue's 1.5 acre property sits on a mountain, surrounded by tropical forest and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This is one of the last arquitectural jewels of the late Steve Adams (San Diego, CA) and it encloses what was most important for the creative genious: a house that is designed from the outside, in.

The main house is painted in a soft pale blue, given the property its name and is reminiscent of the owner's trips to the South of France. The gate opens into an outdoor patio with a fountain and a BBQ area, the whole detailed in grey stone and giving the house a very exotic yet cozy atmosphere. The ample entrance hallway is framed in glass, allowing the sun to shower the house all day long, and immersing the guests in the fabulous landscape from the minute they step in.

This main house contains the Master Bedroom, which is an ample room in a private wing, with a terrace, an office space, a walk-in closet, a bathtub and both an indoor and an outdoor shower. The two other guest bedrooms have access to terraces with hammocks, and both enjoy magnificent ocean views.

An exterior stairway leads into an upper deck, suitable for yoga practice, massage sessions or just cocktail drinking at sunset time.

The living area encompasses the kitchen, the dining and the living room, creating a casual and relaxed atmosphere. Bi-folding glass doors blend this area with the pool and the deck, bringing the outdoors in and making it just the ideal spot to chill.

The spacious TV room with a DVD player, a book library and a comfortable couch may be separated from the rest of the house by a sliding door, thus creating a quiet place to watch a movie or the perfect game room for adults and children alike.

Beautifully kept garden walkways lead to the other buildings of the house: a caretakers quarters and the two guest bungalows set in forest. These are ancient Thai buildings, all made out of wood and imported by the owner to recreate the zen energy of old Asian cultures. Both bungalows are ancrered in wood platforms thus giving the impression of being tree houses, overlooking the ocean and surrounded by green foliage all year round.

Amazing property, friendly staff.. Great stay

  • 4 of 5

Incredible house. Pictures don't do the view justice. The property is up on a hill and very secluded, but still about 10 minutes drive to playa grande beach. Our group of 12 loved the house and found it to be plenty of room. The house staff was very friendly and helpful with some of our special requests. We highly recommend having Chef Fabian cook for dinner or brunch. Both meals were excellent. We had a couple of small issues that prevented a 5 star stay... The bungalows had very low water pressure and did not have any hot water in the showers. The power went out for a couple of Hours one night (I believe this is common in the area). Also, the water was shut off for over 14 hours during our stay while a water pump was being repaired. Although inconvienient for our group, these things happen and the staff seemed quick to repair the problems. Overall it was a great stay and a beautiful property.

Spectacular Home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second vacation as a family in Costa Rica, the first one being a rugged Hike, Bike & Raft adventure. This time we were looking for comfort and fun and Case Blue certainly fit the bill. It is an architectural showpiece; a combination of California surf and Tibetan serenity situated in a beautiful Costa Rican setting. Our family spent two weeks there over the holidays and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is well equipped and superbly maintained. It's location allows for total privacy yet is located close to Playa Grande for good surfing. As well, day trips to other Costa Rican favourites are accessible...hiking, turtle watching, zip lining, fishing, yoga classes, restaurants, etc, although we primarily ate in because the kitchen and house were so self contained and beautiful...there are good local grocery stores to shop in and practice your Spanish! The pool (which is literally an infinity lap pool) and it's deck expand out to showcase an amazing ocean vista below all the while sitting right in the jungle with the wildlife around us. A recommended local French chef came in to cook/teach our gang one night and it was tons of fun and superbly delicious...just a fabulous place to hang out and enjoy each other's company. The pictures and video do not do it justice...we would highly reccommend it.

Exceptionnelle!!!

  • 5 of 5

Une villa idyllique, une vue imprenable sur l'océan pacifique où règnent une flore et une faune variées ( singes hurleurs, aras, iguanes...).

L'intérieur de la maison est aménagé avec beaucoup de goût, de manière fonctionnelle avec des prestations de grande qualité ( climatisation et ventilateur dans chaque pièce, grands espaces qui apportent à chacun son indépendance, solarium...) . Sans oublier, une immense terrasse dotée d'une piscine à débordement ainsi qu'un jacuzzi .

Tout ce confort à proximité de plages, sable blanc , eaux turquoises, peu fréquentées ( conchal) . Séjour inoubliable , à recommander absolument ! Estelle.
