Why Owner chose Palm Beach Estates

When we first came to Costa Rica 10 years ago we were thrilled and deeply moved by its friendly people, stunning nature and unparalleled conservation message. Travelling is our hobby so in the subsequent years we added lots of 'pins to our travel map' all around the world but nothing compares to the beauty and environmental conservation in Costa Rica. Playa Grande combines the best of all: Nature, Beauty, Beach and Wilderness. It is the perfect spot - for your vacation and our retirement!

Beach, Food and Pool

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed their stay so very much at Casa Bonita. We particularly loved how close to the beach we were although we were not on it. The beach had thousands of shells and the water was bathtub warm. We loved walking up and down the shores. We got a kick out of watching the small bright red crabs scampering around the beach path. A wonderful restaurant was as close as the beach and we enjoyed many yummy leaks there. Do not miss the Sangria and the Jalepeno Steak. The pool at the house was sparkling clean and we used it quite more than I thought we would. The kitchen was well stocked and even had TWO refrigerators. A plus factor was that all the beds were king size but were way too hard for our liking. The place was clean. The air conditioning units did not work most of the time no matter how hard we tried to get them to work. The area is quiet and not touristy at all.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Casa Bonita and it was a dream come true. This is our 4th time in Playa Grande and we have always wanted to stay here - we often passed by Bonita on our previous stays when walking to the beach. Our kids begged us to book it because of the extra large pool and we loved the property & proximity to the beach. The house is in great shape and looks exactly like on the pictures. The rooms are beautiful and cozy with plenty of space in the closets. The kitchen is huge with tons of room for 2 families and 2 fridges for food and drinks, we often cooked meals ourselves. The outdoor area is amazing with lots of room, outside BBQ, deck chairs, seating area and beautiful outdoor furniture for everyone. Our kids played in the pool till late at night and had a blast. The house is very private as you cannot see the neighbors through the lovely green plantings. We always felt very safe which was important to me with children. The staff is lovely and the gardener came every day to keep the property in shape. We spent most of the evenings at the property sitting outside enjoying paradise…we missed the animals, though, and did not even see many mosquitos. We went to the little café and restaurants in the are a few times and loved the laid back vibe and good food. Visited Tamarindo – good for shopping and a night out but were glad to return to our relaxing neighborhood and get away from the bustle.

Bonita is located right at the beach entrance so that you can hear the waves when sitting on the patio. My husband is a surfer so he surfed right in front of the beach access while the kids went boogie boarding. The perfect family vacation away from it all! We cannot wait to come back. Thank you Iris for letting us stay at your wonderful place!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at Casa Bonita! The owner was very helpful with any questions we had going in and the on site manager (Manfred) was extremely helpful as well. As a few others mentioned, Manfred offers fresh bread deliveries a few days of the week which we took full advantage of.

The house was great! We have 2 little ones (7&3) and they loved it! The house could easily hold 8 people comfortably using the back room. The beds were all comfortable and the rooms were very large with good AC. Two big bathrooms with fresh towels. The kitchen was well stocked (two fridges, a nice bonus) and perfect for cooking and hanging out. Open living room with games, books and a TV perfect for relaxing after a long day. Excellent wifi as well. I can't say enough about the patio and pool. The pool is huge and has built in bar stools and a bench for chilling in the water during the hot days after returning from the beach. The yard is very private and you feel very safe, fully fenced in with gate. Outdoor shower and BBQ. The beach is very close (less than 5 minute walk), we went back and forth several times a day (not like you need to plan a day trip).

The neighborhood is low key with several good restaurants to walk to. Not the place to go if you are looking for night life, but Tamarindo is a short water taxi ride away if your looking for that. More restaurants available with a 5 minute drive.

We loved it and would definitely go back.

Such a beautiful home in the jungle. We cooked just about every meal as the kitchen is well stocked. Just loved this place and the people. Iris was very knowledgeable and helpful giving us all the tips we needed to make this vacation a memorable one. We will definitely rent again! The most relaxing vacation here that we HAVE EVER HAD. So close to one of the most BEAUTIFUL BEACHES I've ever been on. It was like our private oasis. The caretaker is just FANTASTIC and his apple strudel is to die for. The restaurants that are in walking distance are VERY GOOD and reasonable. When we got home, my wife was so relaxed that we started saving for a return visit next Fall opting to coming back to Paradise than go somewhere else.

Favorite spot in Palm Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several properties in palm beach over the years and this is one is a favorite. In Palm beach there are two kinds of rentals. One where the owners just want to collect a check and have zero interest in your stay or the house (Casa La Vide Grande for example) and one where the owners are interested in making your stay the best possible. Casa Bonita’s owners and staff truly care about your stay and being attentive to any need you might have during your vacation/holiday.

The location is perfect. Less than a two minute walk to the beach and one of the largest pools in PB if just hanging by the pool is on the agenda. It’s too easy to grab a board and head out to catch some waves or a cocktail for one of the most amazing sunsets.

The owners are clearly attentive to keeping the property updated and have every detail needed for a stay covered. Even better, the property manager (Manfred) lives just a few houses down and his response to any request we had was unbelievably, nearly immediate. Definitely ask him to deliver the baked goods that are noted in house info material. So good!

The house was super clean, the rooms were spacious and well appointed and the kitchen, like the rest of the house, had everything you would need for your vacation.

In my opinion, this is an excellent value for your dollar. I told the owner he needs to charge more in fact!

If you are looking in PB, I would highly recommend Casa Bonita or it’s sister property Casa Pipa.

Located in Playa Grande, just steps away from the beach which is a protected nesting grounds for the Leatherback Turtle. 200 m away from the ferry boats that take you over the estuary and into Tamarindo in minutes, at 100 m from a convenience store and restaurant....the perfect location!

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Parasailing, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing,
