Welcome to Casa Ventana al Mar, your “Window to the Sea” in Playa Grande, Costa Rica. Guests of this beautiful home enjoy the finest sunsets over the Pacific in all of Playa Grande. This very private home is located in a quiet, residential area, nestled in a Guanacaste tropical dry forest with a 180 degree view of the ocean. It’s perfect for lounging and enjoying the peace and quiet after a day exploring everything Costa Rica has to offer!
When you enter this gorgeous home, you are immediately drawn to the spectacular view visible throughout the house from oversized sliding glass doors. Indoor / outdoor living at its best! The house is situated on the top of a hill and designed to take advantage of the topical ocean breezes.
From the front door you enter the main living area with 20-foot ceilings, plenty of seating and a flat screen TV. The neighboring gourmet kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to make your own meals, or we can arrange to have our private chef come and prepare a memorable dish for you and your group to enjoy. The large dining table was crafted from reclaimed, local, Guanacaste wood by a local artisan.
Open the extra wide sliding glass doors for free-flowing access to the covered outdoor area and instantly expand your living space. The tropics are all about indoor/outdoor living, creating a relaxing and fun environment from every space. The covered patio offers the perfect spot for your morning coffee or book. Sit and relax or enjoy the chaise lounges as you work on your tan!
The outdoor dining area is great for socializing while the gill master is cooking up the days fresh catch on the gas barbeque after a day on one of our sportfishing charters.
The main attraction of the outdoor area is the 60-foot, infinity edge, ocean view pool. Cool off in the water as you stare out to the Pacific Ocean, the blue skies of Guanacaste and tropical dry forest below. The pool has a shallow beach entry which is great for kids or just lounging. The main pool has plenty of space to splash and cool off between beach visits, or excursions and is the perfect location to enjoy the spectacular Playa Grande sunsets.
