Overview

Playa Grande House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Stunning oceanfront vacation rental home in Playa Grande,Costa Rica - close to Tamarindo. 3 bedrooms and 2 lofts, 3.5 bathrooms, sleeping 11 people and newly renovated.

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.

About Jill at Tahoe Moon Properties

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.

Jill at Tahoe Moon Properties purchased this house in 2004

Why Jill at Tahoe Moon Properties chose Playa Grande

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great Beach Location Remote Village

  • 3 of 5
Nice location. The rental information needs to be updated (wireless access, directions etc) The place needs to get new pots and pans. You have to watch your things since there is a public beach in front. The house keeper is great. However her son Juan Carlo side business is tour arranging so be prepared to be sold every tour. I would recommend stocking up in Liberia and or San Jose before driving in.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Paul. We had actually not been able to get to the house for a few years and finally got to go down and just got back this week. I took your advice and updated the directions and also updated quite a few things at the house. We talked to Juan Carlos about not being so pushy with his tours, but we did go on a couple of tours with him and they were great and he gets people who stay at Villa Siempre good rates. I hope you enjoyed the house as much as we did.

Our favorite Place!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd time to Costa Rica and second time staying at Villa Siempre. We just love it !! A big roomy house and steps away from the sand, what more do you need? There were 8 of us this time and whether you like surfing, walking on the beach, sitting and reading, adventure, it is all there for you. The beaches are amazing and sunsets to die for. Mireya is wonderful, keeps the house clean and with all that sand, we appreciated her! Try her cooking, SO good! Her son Juan Carlos is a big help too, he will help you, set things up for you and go with you if you like. We have met Mireya's whole family now, good people! You are always warned about theft in Costa Rica but you feel very safe at Villa Siempre. Between being able to park your cars behind a big iron gate to the safe inside the house, not something you worry about. We shopped at the Super Compro in Huacas and cooked many meals at the house, all the appliances work great. The wifi was in and out but enough for us to keep in touch back home. One person in our party brought phone cards, great idea, she was able to use them with the phone in the house to call home. We had one incident that we had to find a doctor, and at 9:00 at night, they are only about 5 minutes away. He was actually having dinner in Tamarindo and left to meet us. That is a great perk because you never know! Dr. is next to Kiki's place ( a restaurant) and the Dr. actually tells the people at the restarant when they are leaving so the lady at the restaurant called him and handed us the phone. He spoke English too. A situation that could have been a nightmare turned out so great. Nice the house is close to that. We also got massages on the beach from a lady who set up right there. She will do whatever you want, and hearing the ocean waves while getting a massage is so peaceful. Also had a lady come to the house and give us girls pedicures/manicures and paint our nails and toes with designs. 2 weeks later, still looks good! And she did a great job! Our adventures were exploring, went up the estuary, saw so many different birds, howler monkeys and a crocodile. Went to Playa del Coco, Pirates beach. Shopped in Tamarindo, and Brasalito (great fish market there too)! BUT this house is on such a great stretch of beach that I could spend all my time just at the house! Black sand beach a couple of coves away, when low tide, so much marine life to see. I highly recommend you stay here!!!

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5
My three kids 17, 14, 11 and I had an AMAZING stay at Villa Siempre. When you walk in the door the stunning ocean views are sweeping and gorgeous. Mireya was professional and efficient and though her English was not great we were able to communicate through my son's high school Spanish. The house is not luxury but a perfect family beach getaway. There are two bedroom's downstairs (one has a safe for valuables) with private bathrooms and showers each with an attached loft area to take advantage of the high ceilings. Downstairs bedrooms have a queen bed on the first level and two single beds in each loft area (perfect for husband, wife, and two kids). 3rd bedroom/loft area has a private full bath accessed by a spiral staircase off the kitchen/living area with curtains-making the 3rd bedroom visually private. Bedrooms are located back off the beach area and have FULLY functioning air conditioning - if you close the bedroom and bathroom doors you need to turn down the coolness! Plenty of towels and there were even three beach towels at the house. Living room had TV and music system but we never used them. Wireless internet was spotty and was on and off for about three days. Best supermarket was in Huacas about 20 minutes from house. We cooked most meals but did go to some of the local restaurants which were adequate. Kitchen had all the dishes, glasses, appliances, and cookware we needed. Car rental was a MUST for us. Road conditions from Liberia Airport to Playa Grande (60 minute drive) are no problem for US drivers - generally two lane, paved, well maintained roads. Parking was perfect for us but multiple and/or high profile vehicles might not fit in the secure area. Tamarindo was about 20 minute drive and had lots of shopping, banks, and touristy type things going on - we did not do much but shop there. We did not take the boat to Tamarindo. Petty theft is a PROBLEM at Playa Grande. You MUST take care and follow the advise of Mireya and the locals - we thankfully had no petty theft problems during our stay. Mireya's son, 28 year old Juan Carlos, is my new BEST brother. He cut down coconuts for us on our first day for some refreshments and then helped us plan our whole trip. Palo Verde National Park, Congo Trail Canopy Tour (ziplines), surf lessons outside the house, snorkeling at Playa Conchal, shopping, bargaining, local restaurants, special prices on our tours - he helped and accompanied us so much, I can't thank him enough. PURA VIDA!

Wish I were there, again.

If you have ever seen the Corona commercial with two people sitting on the beach just watching the waves and thought, "I want to be there." Then this is where you want to be. Time slows down and you begin to meld into Tico Time. It is beautiful and peaceful and you can totally escape reality and relax. The house is very clean and well maintained and was large enough for the 10 of us. Mireya is a gem and will give you as much or as little attention as you require. She is very helpful and can put you in touch with any of the many activities available in the area. There are so many things to see and experience in Costa Rica and depending on your activity level, there is something for everyone. This house is located close enough for day trips to many of the attractions. The guide books and internet can provide you with endless possibilities. And after you have spent your day "adventuring", you return to Villa Siempre and its peacefulness rejuvinates you for the next day. There are miles of beaches to walk, beautiful shells to see and endless waves to play in. It's definately not another hotel room. There are restaurants within walking distance that have great food. The fresh fruit and fish is to die for. You can either catch your own fish or pick it up locally in Tamarindo. There is a fresh fish truck that comes by and Mireya can let you know the schedule. You can shop for groceries fairly close and Tamarindo offers gift shops galore as well as banking.We found this house was centrally located to all our activities and needs. This was our first trip out of the country and we found the owner very helpful in providing us with the information we needed to avoid any problems. The rental went smoothly and the house was better in person than in the listing. Everyone in our party enjoyed themselves and would definately come back. We were on the plane headed home and wishing we were still there. I hope we have the opportunity to stay at Villa Siempre next year and we would highly recommend this property. Hopefully you won't book the time we want, but if you do. Enjoy!!!

Villa Siempre

  • 5 of 5
Villa Siempre exceeded my expectations, the Villa itself was spacious and clean. The beach and ocean right outside your patio door was amazing. The sunsets were beyond beautiful. The Taco Star stand down the beach in front of the hotel had the best tacos I have ever eaten. We were fortunate enough to see the Leatherback Turtles laying egss and the samller ones trying to make it to the ocean, it was quite the experience. This would be the perfect place to bring a younger family with so much to do and see. Tamarindo was a friendly town with everyhting you need. To describe this vacation in Playa Grande with one word would be AMAZING. Thank you for letting us enjoy your Villa.

Spectacular Home

  • 5 of 5
Vacationed in this home with 2 other families. When we walked into the home for the first time we were awed by the spectacular ocean view. The home has everything you need for a great vacation, including a wonderful and warm caretaker who is there to help make your stay one to remember. The furnishings were very nice, the beds very comfortable (nice linens) and large beach towels were provided. Wireless, TV, books and games were all provided. The beach is clean, extremely well maintained and the sand is perfect. The surfing/boogie boarding was so much fun, shelling and tile pooling....right outside your back door! You also have the option of daily housekeeping, laundry and meal preparation. I can't wait to go back! Pura Vida!
