Holiday Rental House
The Pipe House began as a dream, an elusive essence that guides our hearts. Conceived with one goal in mind, The Pipe House is designed for living the beach experience to the fullest. Costa Rica has some of the most beautiful beaches around the world to offer, and Playa Grande stands out of the rest. Blessed by marvelous sunsets, white sands and world class surfing, Playa Grande combines great food, outdoor activities and relaxation into a perfect mix for anyone. The Pipe House is a unique place to visit only steps from the beach. Located within a gated community the six bedrooms that make the house are built entirely by hand within recycled concrete pipes, offering a cozy and artistic design. Complementing the six bedrooms there are four bathrooms divided in two separate areas . The r...The Pipe House began as a dream, an elusive essence that guides our hearts. Conceived with one goal in mind, The Pipe House is designed for living the beach experience to the fullest. Costa Rica has some of the most beautiful beaches around the world to offer, and Playa Grande stands out of the rest. Blessed by marvelous sunsets, white sands and world class surfing, Playa Grande combines great food, outdoor activities and relaxation into a perfect mix for anyone. The Pipe House is a unique place to visit only steps from the beach. Located within a gated community the six bedrooms that make the house are built entirely by hand within recycled concrete pipes, offering a cozy and artistic design. Complementing the six bedrooms there are four bathrooms divided in two separate areas . The ranch area hosts an open living room and a fully equipped kitchen. Sitting under two trees called 'Matapalo' the ranch is always cool and shady even in the BBQ area. With outdoor living in mind, relaxing at The Pipe House is easy as the sound of the breaking waves and the singing birds tune in a non-stop natural melody. Monkeys, squirrels, iguanas, parrots and many other animals can be seen regularly either eating off our mango and guayaba trees or chewing into the coconuts in the property. More
