    About this property

    Nestled in Nature Vacation Villa

    Romantic villa in Playa Grande
    Welcome to 'Villa Marbella' Located in the gated community of Palm Beach Estates. The villa is a modern, fully furnished 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom home. Villa Marbella is nestled between the beach and a mangrove estuary where wildlife is abundant and protected . It's not unusual to see and hear Howler monkeys, parrots and other tropical birds on the property or in the surrounding areas. Palm Beach estates is a quiet neighborhood consisting of both permanent year round residents and homes that are rented by their owners. Villa Marbella has permanent residents on either side of the house. The pool is totally private and is a great place to relax and enjoy nature. The 3 bedroom main house has an optional, attached, "in-law" unit with a separate entrance, making the house a 4 bedroom. Each bedroom has ceiling fans and individually controlled air conditioners. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a bathroom with double vessel sinks. The upstairs back bedroom also has a queen bed and features a huge trapezoid window facing the jungle and estuary beyond. The 'Master' upstairs bedroom has a king bed, 2 ceiling fans, two vessel sinks in the bathroom and french doors opening up to a Juliette balcony. Located at the top of the stairs is a small open office area with a futon where one adult or 2 children can sleep and is also equipped with air conditioning. The in-law unit has a double bed, kitchen, and ensuite bathroom. If you have children the entrance can be controlled. We do not rent the in-law unit separately, so regardless of your needs, the privacy of this property is yours. Just let us know if you are interested in including this unit to your rental for an additional fee. This unit expands the whole house to accommodate up to 8 persons comfortably. NOTE: When generating a quote via this website the rates that are listed are for the 3 bedroom main house only. If you are interested in adding the 4 bedroom (in-law suite) there is an additional fee of $85/night during the high season (November through March) and $70/night during low season (April through October). The open gourmet kitchen comes fully stocked and has granite counters with all stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. The living room has a large flatscreen TV equipped with cable and a DVD player. If you enjoy music the casa has a network stereo receiver. You can stream your favorite music via Spotify, internet radio, or music stored on your PC both in the main house or pool deck area. You can relax in the serenity of the outside covered patio overlooking the free flowing pool and lush gardens, or you can soak up the sun on the extended exposed decking wrapping the poolside. For security, the main house and the apartment both have a safe which can accommodate a laptop, phones, passports etc. The house has an extra large lock up room if you wish to secure any additional valuables. Also provided with the house is an ADT alarm system for the entire house and in-law suite. Palm Beach Estates is a gated community, so in the evenings a guard controls the entrance and exit of vehicles into the community. Playa Grande is a part of Las Baulas National Park where the world’s largest leatherback turtles nest every year. If you are an early riser and on a morning beach walk you might catch baby turtles freshly hatched making their way to the ocean. The area is also known for world class surfing, fishing, horseback riding, zip lining, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, golfing, sunset sails and more. Playa Grande is a very laid back 3.5 miles white sandy beach, where you can take long walks or just relax with a cold drink while watching one of our spectacular sunsets. On many occasions you might be the only person on the beach! Villa Marbella is a 2 minute walk to 3 restaurants and a small convenient store and if you want to venture a little further you can take a 5 minute drive into the north of Playa Grande and you will find several more restaurants, pizzeria's, bars, 2 surf shops, and yoga studio. If other services are needed Tamarindo is only 25 minutes by car or during the day you can walk down the beach and catch a water taxi across the estuary. Tamarindo is a little tourist town that has all the amenities such as supermarkets, banks, church's, car rental, restaurants, bars, discos and more!

      Marbella is Great

      This house is fantastic, comfortable and huge but what makes it particularly special is the care and friendly attention that the property managers Kristi and Doug provide. They were always available to help with everything from house issues to setting up tours and transportation. The house pool was a big hit after a day at the beach. Wonderful experience.

      5/5 Excellent

        Just right!

        A short walk to the beach- jungle and monkeys to the rear - and our wonderful friend and concierge, kristie, living rigjt next door. Our group included an age range from 4- 78 - perfect fit for us all. Pool, bbq, great AC, quiet! Near restaurants and the most pristine, empty beach! The gem of the trip however was kristie! All of her recs and reservations were on the money - half day private boat, surf lessons, restaurants, estuary tour, baker, and fish guy. Truly made our trip special. We look forward to returning!!!

        5/5 Excellent

          dynamite house

          This house was wonderful! The best part was the house's manager Kristi. I had an injury and was walking with a cane. Kristi was incredibly kind and accomidating, even giving me crutches to use. She arranged fishing for our men during which they caught pounds of Mahi Mahi! A huge thank you to Kristi for all she did. This house is well maintained, equipped and the pool is sensational!

          5/5 Excellent

            Fantastic bird and monkey watching from back yard

            Our group of 6 aged 62-91 enjoyed our second stay at Casa Marbella. The house is clean, very comfortable, well equipped and beautifully located, steps from a wildlife preserve and the amazing Playa Grande beach. Kristi stopped by everyday to make sure all was well and to suggest activities, restaurants, etc. She pre stocked the house with food so that we could prepare a few meals before going shopping. It's very peaceful and quiet except for the birds and howler monkeys! We love it here!

            5/5 Excellent

              House, pool, yard, and staff were perfect.

              Had electricity problems one night. Kristi and Doug were on it and had it repaired by the time we returned from our morning excursions. Pool was great place to relax and visit. Great experience
