This amazing property was much more than we expected! We couldn't have asked for a better property and location to enjoy our first trip to Costa Rica. Scott (owner) and Shauna/Jorje (property managers) were so helpful to us throughout our stay. We were two families (8 total) and we had more than enough room. It was such a treat that every room had its own bathroom. The pool, covered patio and covered gazebo area are the areas that we spent most of our time (along with the beach). The beach is steps away and was not busy, at all. We all enjoyed hours of boogie boarding, catching some awesome waves. The ocean was wonderfully warm and the sand was soft!
We had submitted our grocery list to Shauna before our stay and she had everything there waiting for us when we arrived. We decided not to rent cars, so having the groceries there was amazing.
Playa Grande is the perfect location if you don't want to rent a car. There are 4 local restaurants (all within walking distance), so we enjoyed three of the four during our stay. (Happy Hour is from 5:00-6:00.) There is a little grocery store close by if you run out of any essentials. Tamarindo is a bustling beach town that is located about a 10 minute walk and a 2 minute water taxi ride away.
There is so much local wildlife to enjoy in Playa Grande. We saw monkeys, lizards, iguanas, beautiful birds, racoons, snakes and even a spotted skunk!
I can't say enough about this Palm Beach Estates, Playa Grande and especially this property. My hope is that this will not be the last time we stay here!
Beautiful pool and grounds. Manfred always came when called. Could have used access to washer/dryer and would have been nice to have some beach chairs and things for the pool and ocean. Should also not have to replace our water bottles for kitchen but overall really did enjoy the stay.
