Interaction with guests
Our apartments are located upstairs from Playa Grande's most happening surf shop. 9am to 6pm are the hours the shop is open (current as of October 2017) and our friendly staff are all trained to be helpful, polite and welcoming to our guests. Many guests say their highlight was getting to know the shop staff, taking a surf lesson from one of our awesome surf instructors, or simply parking themselves in the leather rocking chair out front of the shop and chatting with whomever comes by! Jeannette, our Concierge Manager is your point-person during the reservations process, and online prior to your arrival. She will most likely be there at check-in, or within a few hours of your arrival, depending on timing.

Security deposit collected via Paypal or credit card upon arrival. Highly recommend Vacation Rental Insurance, in addition to your regular Traveler's Insurance to cover any cancelations, delays etc. Remember, 'if you can't afford Travel Insurance, you can't afford to travel!'

Ask us about our 'GREEN REBATE'- for those energy conscious guests, we may agree to offer a rebate at the end of your stay for using the AC wisely (keeping windows closed while AC running, turning off when you leave apartment, using bedroom units only during night etc)...and also for being very conscious about the usage of water.

About the neighbourhood
Playa Grande is a quaint little beachside community with very little development, lots of trees, monkeys, iguanas and wildlife. Not really classified as a 'town', lacking the requisite soccer field and church, a vacation in Playa Grande really urges you to take a step back, relax, and get into the 'Pura Vida' mentality.

You may wish to rent a vehicle for part of your stay, we can have one delivered to the apartment for you. Parking is available right beside your apartment, easily accessible. A short easy 5-7 minute stroll down the street leads you to the beautiful long white sandy beach. Sunsets are stunning here, as are the evenings simply enjoyed on your back terrace, listening to the sounds of nature.

Below are some of the activities available to you during your s...
Getting around
Best way to explore and feel free to roam, is to splurge on a rental car. Basic, economy rentals cars won't break the budget, but do allow you some flexibility to come and go as you please.
Many guests enjoy having a rental car for the first 3-4 days of their stay, help them settle in, stock up on groceries etc. Adobe Car Rental will collect the rental car from the apartment when you need them to- so you can enjoy the final days of your stay without a car, walking around or renting a beach cruiser bicycle from our Frijoles Locos Surf Shop downstairs.
