We booked last minute Villa Olivia and had the best family vacation right on the beach. Marianela and Julie were so helpful with all of our needs. The house is great for families and friends. The pool was the best ! The breezes that came off the beach were so cooling and the wrap around porch was so nice to...

The villa is set towards the end of what we thought was a rough track - until we had driven elsewhere in Costa Rica where some roads that purport to be 'main' (i.e. with numbers...

About the neighbourhood
Only an hour drive from the Liberia Airport (LIR,) Playa Grande is centrally located between Playa Tamarindo and Playa Flamingo. Truly one of the most unique, unspoiled vacation spots in Costa Rica, its 2 mile-long crescent shaped coastline, of warm blue waters and honey colored sand forms the Las Baulas Marine National Park. A sanctuary for the nesting giant leatherback turtles.

Imagine surfing directly out the back door, scanning the trees for howler monkeys, sea shelling along the beach and gazing at the stars. In the privacy of your villa take delight swinging in a hammock, indulging in a spa treatment, or simply smiling at a sunset.

Go explore the estuary in a canoe, spotting birds, iguanas and crocodiles basking on the sun-drenched riverbanks. Snorkel Playa Conchal made up of...
