Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome! It was extremely well-appointed and so comfortable. We loved staying in it for both its beauty and its function, and the location was also fantastic. We loved spending time outside in the pool and relaxing on the patio. Can't wait to return!

convenient beach location with pool

  • 4 of 5

A nice choice if two bedrooms and two baths meet your needs. Wonderful outdoor space around a pool; which is where you will likely spend most of your time. It does not have the most comfortable seating for indoor after hours, and a little worn in spots, but can be a good choice for two couples or a small family. There are nice restaurants within walking distance and with a car, you can expand your choices within a short distance. The owner works with you to meet your needs. This is a great jumping off base to visit volcano country and rain forests. Don't be afraid to rent a small SUV and explore!

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults) had a great stay at Mike's house. The place is perfect for two couples. We cooked many meals and found the kitchen well supplied. The pool was a joy to swim in...many times a day. Mike comes in the morning to clean, because the house is surrounded by tropical trees and leaves blow in the water. Each morning the pool is perfectly clean and ready for a swim. The little neighborhood around the house is all walkable: the gorgeous beach, good restaurants, a nice little convenience store (has most groceries, beer, rum, not great produce). Having Mike close by is a plus too...a portable fan stopped working and he had a new one to us the next morning. He doesn't intrude at all, but is there to help if you need him.

Peaceful Beach Community Haven

  • 5 of 5

Photos and memories of #54 Palm Beach Estates in Playa Grande will sustain us through the winter--an incredible location for a first visit to Costa Rica! The property itself is exactly as described by others so we want to focus our comments on the owner of this home, Mike, who came to our rescue in a dire situation. At the end of 2 glorious, perfect weeks we took off to Liberia Airport for an 8 am flight home. Two family members leaving on a later flight were still at #54. As we approached the airport (an hour and a half away), our cell phone rang. Apparently, my husband had accidentally picked up the kid’s rental car keys and they were in his pocket! Lots of hurried calls ensued. Word to the wise, Budget does not have spare keys; there are no shuttles, taxis, or buses on Sunday morning. One couple would have to miss their flight. Panic set in, and on a prayer, my husband called Mike and shared our dilemma. Here is the kind of guy who owns #54. Mike drove to Budget car rental to pick up the keys and delivered them back to #54—a round trip that cost him at least 3 hours. All we can do is say, THANK YOU, MIKE! Your generous hospitality was the icing on all our other fabulous experiences in Costa Rica. Vacationers, you won’t go wrong if you rent this property for your home away from home.

Awesome! Tim from Florida

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two friends had a great time. This was our 3rd trip to Costa Rica, but the 1st time we stayed in Playa Grande. A quick 200 yards or so to the beach and several restaurants and a store all within walking distance as well. Mike is great and his place very nice. Comfortable beds and cold AC. The American standard I guess. The entry road into Palm Beach Estates was a little rough due to the extended rainy season. A 4 wheel drive is recommended, but not mandatory. We choose to get one because we knew we would be traveling off the beaten path. Overall an"awesome" time. Thanks Mike.

Great Stay Wrong Time

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome with everything you could have wanted. Mike the owner is so helpful in many ways. Months ahead of time I asked Mike tons of questions and they were answered asap. The beach is about a 1 min walk away to what I would consider a private huge beach, with white sand and tons of shells. The only set back was that we went when the 3 restaurants outside of the house gate were closed for the month of October. All and all there were 4 of us who enjoyed it and had a great time.
