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.

I just got home and I want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Home away from Home.

The house was amazing. Well kept and clean.

The pool was amazing. Mike would come and clean it every morning. You wouldn't even know he had been there.

The beach was minutes away. One of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen in my life. The beach was super private not more then 5 people on the whole beach at a time. The beach was covered in shells. Just covered.

The near by town was only a walk a a short boat ride away. Lots of pubs and places to eat. More touristy.

Mike was wonderful! He was took really great care of us.

This was place great for family fun or alone time with your spouse.

We will be back!

The Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Palm Beach # 54 was absolutely perfect! Mike, the owner, was warm and gracious. He even went so far as to have fruit, cold beer, and chilled waters upon our arrival.The home was spacious and inviting, and only steps away from the beach. The place was squeaky clean and very accurately described online. The king beds were huge and comfy and the bathrooms spacious and well appointed. Each room had a separate air conditioning unit with convenient remote control. It is fully equipped with lockable storage safes, cable TV and high speed internet. We so enjoyed eating breakfast each day on a beautiful patio overlooking a gorgeous pool. Palm Beach Estates 54 is a convenient, secluded and SAFE location. The home made for an amazing, relaxing escape for our family of four. Mike and the people of Playa Grande are absolutely the nicest! We couldn't have been happier! We highly recommend this rental. Don't miss this one!

Quiet location, great beaches

  • 4 of 5

A great location if you like a quiet, peaceful setting very close (3 min walk) to a great beach with few people around. A great place for surfing or just hanging around the beach. The villa is very private, surrounded by the "jungle". No disturbances, you can hear and see all the birds and the wildlife around you.

The villa matched the description provided, a great pool and the amenities you need, it is air-conditioned in every room (3 separate units), kitchen, washed dryer, etc. Mike come early to clean the pool from leaves, etc. every morning and never bothered us. The high speed internet (WiFi) worked flawlessly all the time.

A couple of restaurants with great Costa Rican food are in walking distance, they are very reasonably priced, and very friendly and helpful with suggestions and accommodating your taste; of course you can get burgers too but then you don't have to go to Costa Rica.Tamarindo town/beach is a 30 min drive and has endless number of restaurants, it can also be reached by watertaxis durind the day

One recommendation, you better have a 4 WD car to get to the place and around, the roads are rough.

Overall, if you want peace and quiet to relax and take it easy it is a great place to go, if you want the bars, the tourist crowd, nightlife, etc you should go to a resort in Tamarindo or just stay in Miami
