About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 7 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Casa Muy Grande is a luxurious beachfront estate that once served as a small boutique hotel. The property is now privately owned and available as a weekly rental. This gorgeous villa offers all the amenities of a hotel with the serenity and seclusion of a private residence.

Casa Muy Grande boasts five large bedrooms, each with an adjacent bathroom, air conditioning, small refrigerator and featherweight down comforters. The four first-floor bedrooms each have their own plasma television. Each bedroom has its own private entrance, except the master bedroom, which is located on the second floor and features beautiful views from its private balcony. Among Casa Muy Grande's many amenities is a private pool, hot tub, large tiki bar, and a fun-ball court.

The property is located directly on Playa Grande beach which is well known for its world class surfing and pristine, untouched coast-line. Of course, surfboards and boogie boards are available for your use during your stay.

The Costa Rican government has declared Playa Grande part of a national park (called Parque Marino las Baulas), placing restrictions on development in the area so all forms of wildlife are thriving along the beach and at Casa Muy Grande. Visitors are often awakened to the sound of monkeys swinging in the trees of this 2-acre private property. From late September until March, leatherback turtles swim to shore directly in front of the estate to nest and lay their eggs.

Come live the Costa Rican lifestyle to the fullest! Pura Vida!

Unbelievable Week with the Girls

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Casa Muy Grande for 10 years and each year it just keeps getting better and better. Whether walking the beach and thrilling to the site of a leatherback turtle's tracks, taking a boat into the town of Liberia, having a massage on the beach, or fresh fish or lobster at home or in a fabulous beach restaurant, this is the best of all possible vacation locations. The really most spectacular sunsets ever!

Significant investment & care required

  • 3 of 5

We had an extraordinary family gathering at Playa Grande. The beach, surfing, local amenities and true Costa Rican feel are unequaled. We rented four villas in the Palm Beach neighbourhood and Casa Muy Grande - while perfectly located and with beautiful grounds, needs a significant infusion of care and maintenance. The overall current state of the home is very poor. The curtains, linens, paint, pool deck, pool furnishings, sport court, etc. all in very poor condition. It is a very special property that needs a significant infusion of TLC. It could be a very special experience if the rental has a major makeover and refresh - at present I would look at other properties in the community until Casa Muy Grande is upgraded.

Owner's Response: You are correct about the condition of the home. The owner has been making good strides in updateing the home. There was a sunken living room in the middle where the dining room table is. We have completely refurbished that pulling out built-in furniture and filling in and re-tiling the space. Next the owner had the interior of the whole house painted. He has started re-upholstering the furniture and has bought a new couch for the living room. There are other things that the owner has planned but is waiting until we are in our low season this year. It sounds like, all in all you had a good time and we do appreciate the feedback and hope you come and visit us again as we move forward with the improvments.

Grand House perfectly situated

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 12 staying at Casa Grande for a week and had a wonderful time. All the rooms were spacious, clean, and air-conditioned. The pool and outdoor area were great. Our favorite is the wide beach behind the house. During the time of our visit, the water was very warm and the waves are just right for the children to boogie board or learn surfing. The beach is sandy and long, making it a great spot for morning or evening walks. The house keeper and his wife were very friendly and helped us booked various excursion at very good price. The last stretch of road going to the house is a muddy dirt road that has lots of pot holes, so I would recommend getting a 4-wheel drive. Overall, it was a wonderful stay.

Family Surf Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days in playa grande at casa muy grande; we lived the pura vida to the fullest. We comfortably fit 7 adults and 4 kids in the house. The open kitchen and living space was ideal for entertaining and relaxing, while the 2 acres of land, hammocks, pool area and of course the beach gave us plenty of room to spread out.

The house management team was super friendly and made fabulous dinners - the guacamole was extraordinary. When we wanted to eat out we had plenty of options within walking distance - we even ventured into Tamarindo for an afternoon, enjoying a great beachfront meal.

The days involved waking up early and surfing, lounging at the pool, and more surfing and swimming as the sun dropped into the pacific. We rented surf boards and bogey boards from the local surf shop and everyone did their best learning on the friendly waves.

A must do is the estuary boat tour - we walked 10 minutes up the beach to the boats - paid 10 bucks each and saw numerous birds, monkeys and a HUGE alligator.

This was a great trip - and the house perfectly suited our needs. We would definitely go back.

Paradise on the Pacific

  • 5 of 5

Nestled on the beachfront Pacific side of Costa Rica and 15 minutes walking distance down the beach from the town Tamarindo’s famous surfing, Casa Muy Grande is a respite from the modern world. The staff is attentive to every need including scheduling a deep tissue massage in the Tiki style hut on the property where you can hear the ocean breeze waft through the overhead palms. It has a beautiful crescent shaped wading pool, five bedrooms, a real tiki bar the size of a small house. And when the whim grabs you- go out the front gate and grab breakfast, lunch, or dinner from one of several local cafe’s serving fresh local fare right in the neighborhood. At night beware the Mango Jalapeño margaritas down at the Surfer bars like the Rip Jack, taco’s at Las Tortugas, and of course the excellent fish at Bula Bula. Care to learn to Surf? Walk down the beach a couple of steps and have the locals take you out in to the mellow pacific waters. Shopping your game? head over to Tamarindo for an afternoon of leisurely meandering in and out of the local shops. Case Grade certainly the best place to relax, bar none, on this side of Costa Rica!

Fun in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

Took my family and a friend’s family so 4 adults and 4 kids and had an epic vacation. Casa Muy Grande exceeded all our expectations. We mostly enjoyed the access to Playa Grande, the pool, and the staff. The main house was stunning and the grounds were immaculate.

Car: recommended

Casa Muy Grande is located on Playa Grande in the Gunacaste region of Costa Rica. With its 3 miles of white sand, Playa Grande is one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The beach and the bay of Tamarindo are part of the Marine National Park 'Las Baulas.' Monkeys are often found in the trees around the villa and leatherback turtles swim ashore to lay their eggs on the beach every year.

Playa Grande is the location of some of the best surfing in the world. The area was made famous by the movie Endless Summer. You can surf directly in front of the house but beginners may want to walk down the beach to Tamarindo for the smaller waves. Tamarindo, the biggest nearby town, offers many shops and restaurants and has a very active nightlife. However, you don't need to go all the way to Tamarindo for excellent food and drinks as there are several delicious restaurants and bars right in Playa Grande, one even directly across the road from the villa.

Other Activities: hiking, rainforest tours
