About the property

5 Bedrooms each with Private Ensuite Bath + Family Room & Sunroom (Sleeps 12)

This casa is the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy the warm breezes of the Costa Rican coast. The neighborhood of Palm Beach Estates is a quiet, gated community with onsite security, located within the lush Las Baulas national marine park. The peaceful, uncrowded beach of Playa Grande is covered with beautiful shells just waiting to be discovered. And if you enjoy wave riding, our beach has one of the best surf breaks in the country! Casa de Amigos is a spacious, uniquely designed property that was recently renovated to maximize the vacation experience for larger groups. The house boasts several living spaces for multiple activities yet maintains an open, interactive floorplan for the ease of group entertainment. Its two separate living rooms, centered in the house, provide a television with DVD player, plus a central stereo. These rooms flow to the fully equipped kitchen, so you may curl up on one of several couches while other group members cook dinner or watch a movie.

The floorplan includes five bedroom suites – four conveniently positioned off the two main living areas & the fifth being a private suite just off the pool. Each bedroom has its own internal bathroom, providing exceptional privacy from the rest of the group. All bathrooms have tiled showers and separate vanities. Four bedrooms have king-size beds with premium luxury mattresses & sheets. One bedroom has a queen size bed plus a set of twin bunks (affectionately called “the kids room”). All bedrooms have separate, individual AC units and ceiling fans, as well as a TV with cable.

The kitchen is the perfect gathering place for any time of day. Fully equipped with stainless steel refrigerator, cooktop, microwave and oven, it provides all the modern conveniences of home. There is seating for six at the breakfast bar, plus an additional seating for six at the dinette area. Its gorgeous dark wood cabinetry and granite counter-tops are two luxurious accents of this upscale property.

With regard to luxury, this home’s remarkable function cannot overshadow its equally beautiful form. Its interior design is the distinct collaboration of its stateside owners & a local decorator. From its incredible wood-covered, vaulted ceilings to its playful light colored sofas, every design element is precisely chosen. Combining the influences of the coast with the local art of Costa Rica and Nicaragua, the interior of this property conveys the perfect blend of “tropical chic”.

And once you have taken the opportunity to absorb the entire list of “inside” delights, you won’t want to miss its equally impressive outside amenities. Situated directly in front of the beach access, it is only steps from pristine Playa Grande beach and all of its many activities. You may also prefer to take your choice of a refreshing plunge in the private swimming pool, or simply kick back in a lounge chair to catch some rays amid the tropical landscape of the backyard. Or perhaps relaxing in the cool water on a “pool stool” while sipping an ice-cold fruit smoothie might be most appealing.

Great experience for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 (ages 8-72) had a wonderful time at this house! Enough beds for everyone to sleep comfortably and the outdoor space was beautiful. We all enjoyed the pool and boogie boarding was a blast (there were 5 boogie boards on site). Playa Grande is such a nice, peaceful beach. It was easy to take the water taxi into Tamarindo for a couple of touristy outings, but we really had everything we needed within walking distance of the house. Cafe Mar Azul is right next door and the food was fantastic. We highly receommend eating there a few times. The staff were so friendly and entertaining and everything was delicious! The other restaurants in town were good too and the local WilMart has basic grocery essentials. Shawna, the house manager was always very quick to respond if we had questions or needed anything. She also arranged a fabulous horseback riding tour for us! All in all we would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the Tamarindo/Playa Grande area.

fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, plenty of room for a large group and kids. Great location, literally across the street from the beach and several good restaurants are close by. There is not a washing machine for guests but the maid did our washing for us the day she was there to clean the house. Kitchen had everything you need . It was a really enjoyable vacation.

Everything it said it was and more

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a number of vrbo homes in the past and this one was right up there on the top of my list. We will be booking it again the next time down to Costa Rica. It came with a lot of extras which put it over the top, buggy boards, beach chairs, sand toys for my grandson etc...Only thing I will share is that it said it had a washer and dryer, which it did, but was not available to the renters. When I asked Shawna about this, she quickly hooked us up with a laundry service that was quick and very inexpensive ( picked up a garbage bag full of clothes washed, dryed and folded and delivered them back in 24 hours) for $28.

Just walked into another vrbo down the beach for a week with grownups and first impression is that I wish I would have stayed another week Palm Beach Estates.

House was great! Very spacious and clean. We all felt very safe. Close to the beach. We saw howler monkeys, crabs, and lots of other wildlife right from the house. Local restaurants were fantastic. Overall great place to stay!

Super Property

  • 5 of 5

Thai property met all our expectations for a family of 10 vacation.

The house was beautifully finished, furnished decorated and equipped.

We were able to reach many activities and adventures easily.

The 100 yard walk to the wonderful Pacific surfing beach is hard to beat.

Good restaurants were within walking distance.

You will love it

Beautiful house, beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Casa Amigos! We were two families of four, the kids loved the beautiful pool which came stocked with plenty of toys, as well as the expansive and pretty secluded beach with lots of natural life (sea snails, sand dollars, etc.) and the adults loved just about everything else about the house. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies, and we did cook a lot because restaurants adequate for kids aren't plentiful. (The Mega mart is about 35 min drive away). Each room has its own bathroom, and is spacious. The house managers, Shawna and Jorge, were very helpful in setting up any extras that we needed, such as groceries for the first morning, boogie boards, tours of the countryside (highly recommend Buena Vista adventures and Serendipity sailing tours), and were responsive to any needs or questions we had. This was a lovely place to stay in Costa Rica!
