Why Rick Mullen chose Palm Beach Estates
It took more than 5 years of exploring, comparing homes and locations in Costa Rica to find the perfect place to spend an annual escape from winter. Simple living, good neighbors, a beach home close to both surf and swimming pool, air conditioning and outdoor living, solid construction, open living, cleanliness and comfort without fussy. We look forward to sharing this tropical escape with you.

We loved this place! Great location, nice compound with a shared pool kept so clean! The only bummer was no big bowl only small cereal bowls and the blender is stripped so doesn't work. Those can be easily replaced. Thanks to Jorge for helping us and our next door friends get comfy.
It's a happy place, that's for sure. Mucho gracias for letting us know about the bowls and blender. We will get them replaced ASAP. Chances are the bowls are in one of the other units from the fun family and friend groups that come to our little complex. We have fun as owners, running the 'shared' items back and forth when we come.
Playa Grande - Sunshine Villa
What a fantastic house and location! I was so surprised by what was available within Palm Beach Estates - several great restaurants, bike rentals and tour operators, a little market. It was the icing on the Sunshine Villa cake.
The house was so perfect: extremely comfortable king size beds in each bedroom, a nice sized living room with TV, a well stocked kitchen. Outside, the patio led right to the pool and had comfy patio furniture (and hammock) to lounge in.
The beach was a short walk away and was much less busy than Tamarindo.
If we decide to return to Costa Rica next year, I would definitely consider booking Sunshine Villa again.
Muchas gracias and pura vida, Shawna, Rick, and Teresa!
Excellent Holliday Vacations!
Great place to stay for the Hollidays.
-Very near to the beach. Walking distance. The beach is Awesome. Since it is a National Park it is very well taken care of, it is very clean, there is not a lot of noise.
-Very near to restaurants, at least three of them are within walking distance. Some other options in Playa Grande.
-Near to convenience store. Walking distance as well.
-The house has a very practical distribution and they have everything you need (linen, kitchen appliances, small appliances, cutlery, dishes, etc)
-Pool area is nice and has shadow, which makes it comfortable to stay during the day.
-Some included entertainment (boogie boards, some books, some board games, cards)
-Very recently bought main kitchen appliances.
-Kitchen and wooden doors may need some maintenance.
-Water pump makes some noise that can be fixed.
-BBQ is ok, might need maintenance soon.
Noise level very dependent on neighbours
I love Palm Beach Estates and will return. Shawna manages this property and she is GREAT - you couldn’t ask for a kinder, more resourceful person who goes above and beyond on all counts. The house has everything you could possibly need - even a boogie board! We stayed for two weeks and had a lovely time BUT it was loud due to rentals behind that seem to attract louder people (probably heard music 10 of 14 days we were there), and the house could use an ant exterminator to go through. Having said that, I think both those issues are seasonal and remedied. We will definitely go back to Palm Beach Estates - it’s a great area!!
