Villa Siempre is a wonderful oceanfront property. There is nothing between you and the beach; you can step right from the patio onto the stunning white sand of Playa Grande Beach. Playa Grande is a wonderful beach for children and also a well known surf break (with both left and right hand waves on a point beach break). The Villa has a well equipped kitchen
You can watch the waves break from the kitchen while you are preparing meals or while enjoying a drink or breakfast at the bar. The home has high ceilings and wonderful natural light. As you relax in the living or dining room you can see the waves breaking just beyond the palm trees. This is one of the few homes along the coast that has unobstructed view of the ocean.
Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own bathroom and air-conditioner. The master bedroom has a king bed and many wonderful wood accents. The two downstairs bedrooms are both multi leveled - one room has a twin and queen upstairs and a queen downstairs, the other has two twins upstairs and a queen downstairs.
Bedroom 1: King
Bedroom 2: Queen
Bedroom 2 loft: Queen & 1 twin
Bedroom 3: Queen
Bedroom 3 loft: 2 twins
As you relax outside on the deck, on the beautiful teak table and chairs or lounges, you can watch the children play on the beach or just watch perfect waves break. At six o'clock every night you can watch the sunset over the ocean and when conditions are just right you may even see the elusive green flash.
This is the ultimate place for a beach vacation, the beach and waves of the famous Playa Grande just outside your door and then the many attractions of Tamarindo and the surrounding towns nearby.
Playa Grande beach is a wonderful place for collecting shells and there is also a wonderful huge rock that you can climb that is surrounded by wonderful rock pools full of shells and marine creatures.
If you are lucky enough to be at the beach between January to March - this is also the sight of the Leatherback Turtles nesting grounds and you can arrange special tours to see them come up onto the beach at night to nest and watch the young nestlings scamper to the water at day break.
Tamarindo, a wonderful bustling tourist town, can be accessed by strolling along the beach and catching a boat across the estuary or by car. The walk is about 45 minutes and then very quick boat ride (only available in daylight hours and costs about $1- $2 each way). Many people swim or walk across the estuary but for me $1 - $2 was worth the dry clothes on the other side. Tamarindo has many wonderful shops and restaurants as well as a beautiful beach.
You can also take a boat ride down the estuary, early morning is the best time, and view the wonderful wild life in the area. We saw all sorts of birds and numerous crocodiles and our driver also found us a huge family of howler monkeys a short walk from the banks. There is another boat ride in Philadelphia about 45 minutes drive from the home on the Palos Verde that is even better for seeing wildlife.
For those of you wanting a beach vacation this is the ultimate location, the house is fantastic, it comes with daily maid service and a cook can also be organized. The Costa Rican people are very friendly and the area is a wonderfully interesting place to visit.
Refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, blender, toaster, washing machine, dryer, kitchen, large dining room table, off street secure parking, outdoor tables with lounges, outdoor shower & sink, CD player, bed & bath linens provided, daily maid service, cook on request.

My husband and I and two children live in Lake Tahoe California. It is an amazing place to live with incredible skiing and Lake Tahoe in summer is so beautiful. My husband works on the Squaw Valley ski patrol in winter and is a General Contractor in summer. I have a vacation rental business renting houses in Lake Tahoe. Both our children are in a Spanish immersion school and love to ski and enjoy all that Tahoe has to offer. The only thing that Tahoe does not have (or not very often) is surf.
On my husband's 50th birthday he decided to surf for a month in Costa Rica. Through a local friend we rented a home on the beach in Playa Grande and immediately fell in love with the area and the people. Villa Siempre our oceanfront home was a few doors down from where we were staying and it was for sale. Don said 'I have always wanted an oceanfront home'. I restrained myself and did not answer 'Duuhhhhh'. We looked into it and because I was already in the business of renting decided to go ahead and purchase the property. A few months later we found Mireya, she is amazing and takes such good care of the property and us. We visit the property 2 - 3 times a year and then rent it the rest of the year. It really is and amazing spot.
Every time we go down to Villa Siempre we take different people with us so we end up doing a lot of the same things but it doesn't seem to get old. We go zip lining in the rain forest, take boat trips down the river and feed monkeys, ATVing on the beach, go to Guatil to buy pottery and see it be made (so far none has broken on the way home) and then visit great restaurants. Under sufferance I will go shopping but only if it involves a great lunch and some sunset Mai Tais. We never miss going to the local Rodeos which is a real treat.
