The Space

This expansive 3,875sqft fully furnished and beautifully decorated home in Ventana, Guanacaste will accommodate a large family, up to four couples or your friends in a remarkable, serene setting within a few strides of Ventana Beach in Playa Grande on the Pacific side of Costa Rica.

Large bedrooms, each with private bathrooms/showers, impressive living room, full ultra-modern kitchen, inside and covered outside dining, open-air covered piazza/veranda poolside, many extraordinary amenities, on-site maintenance worker/gardener/guard with perfect English and Spanish to assist you.

The are but only a few of these “rare find” majestic villas in all of the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica with the spaciousness, splendor and stunning appeal to guarantee your family and friends an unequalled, unforgettable visit in such an exotic, tropical paradise.

This alluring custom-built country estate spares no expense in deluxe finishes, accents and furnishings all artistically assembled from the world over. The architecture, interior design and unique floor plan are simply masterful! Truly, this is inspired, pampered living for short or longer term whether you require a week, several weeks or longer.

You will enjoy your own swimming pool in back by the veranda, the pristine Ventana white sand beach rarely visited by others, ocean breezes, and breathtaking, colorful sunsets with unspoiled views as far as you can see.

One enjoys amazing ocean and beach front views from a spacious outside dining, living, pool, and master bedroom. This spacious 4 bedroom 4 bath beach front house is seclusively between Playa Grande and a natural reserve to the north. Casa Ventana has a spacious pool and outside areas. This beach front home has has all the modern amenities one expects from a luxurious beach front life style in a romantic Medetterrian style villa. The privacy is amazing and one feels as if all of Playa Ventana belongs all to oneself. One enjoys amazing ocean and beach views from every angle of the living areas of this gorgeous nature side home.

The beach is only footsteps away and first class surfing is in very short walking distance with a wide variety of dining and entertainment and shopping possibilities across the beach in Tamarindo. other advantage of this unit is it is close to everything but just far away to fee secluded enough to truly enjoy the daily monkey visits and experience the variety of wildlife directlly in front of you.

Reviews:

Went down with our family for 8 days...enjoyed every aspect of the the Country, the Beach and the House. My image is of Hawaii...60 years ago! The jungle comes right down to the beach....not all the roads are paved...the beach is undeveloped and unspoiled, the water is warm, the people are friendly. The house is great for one or more families (be advised the upstairs does not come with it..there is no TV which is a blessing...but there is internet)A great addition is the assistance of Andreas the caretaker. Great guy! Makes your coffee, Mai Tais, mean breakfast if you want him too and he knows what is best about the area. We hope to go back!

ONE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE AND ENJOYABLE VILLA FROM THE MANY OTHERS WE RENTED IN THE LAST THREE YEARS IN COSTA RICA. THE VILLA IS SUBURB, THE
LOCATION ON ONE OF THE FINEST BEACHES IN COSTA RICA, THE SECURITY, THE
LIVE ON THE PROPERTY CARETAKER WHO IS MARVELOUS AND VERY TALENTED.

  • Maggie’s place was excellent for our family of four (we have kids aged 10 and almost 5). The location right next to the metro and grocery was extremely convenient. The apartment was spacious, well maintained, and comfortable in a quiet building. Maggie was a responsive and helpful host.

  • The location was convenient for food, shopping and transportation. We never got to meet Maggie in person, but she provided a folder of information for the building and neighborhood. Maggie's place provided all the necessities for our family's stay.

  • Maggie is very helpful. Didn't see her in person, but she responds promptly to messages.

    The apartment is better than expected. It's spacious, clean, quiet, and well equipped. You can even watch the sunset from the balcony! Not sure if it will change with the season, but during my stay, the Sun sets over the horizon in between 2 taller building.

    The apartment is very well located. Right across the road is Zhishan MRT station and a taxi stand. There are also food stalls, restaurants, pharmacies, convenience stalls, supermarkets, etc, all within 5 mins walking distance.

  • Convenience, space, cleanness and location are the key features of this great appt. As a host Maggie was professional and always quick to answer all your questions. Everything you wish for is there. From garbage bags to shampoo, even hairdryers too. All this makes a carefree stay. Thanks to Maggie we were able to create our little heaven for our small family while staying in Taipei. Highly recommended.

  • Maggie was very responsive and helpful. My father was concerned about the noise since it is directly next to the MRT and she met him in Taipei to check out the unit before we committed. The location was absolutely perfect and there was no disturbance from the MRT. There were 2 parents and 2 adult children and it was a perfect home base for us to visit extended family. The unit itself is very well maintained, clean and spacious. We'll definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it for others!

  • Maggie's apartment was really comfortable and good value for our 9-day stay in Taipei (4 people). The apartment is clean, quiet, spacious and has everything you could need! The location is great, right opposite a station on the red MRT line, which is in my opinion the best line to be on in terms of accessing the places a visitor to Taipei would want to go. The apartment is especially well located for the Shilin night market, the National Palace Museum and Tamsui. The neighbourhood has a nice atmosphere and there are plenty of nice restaurants, cafes and good shops/supermarkets nearby. Maggie was a great host, although we didn't meet her, communication with her was efficient and she arranged for us to pick up the keys at the front desk on arrival so it all went smoothly. She also provided a handy folder with tips and information about the apartment and the area. Would definitely stay again when in Taipei!

  • The house itself is great! gorgeous views. bedrooms upstairs and on first level. full bathroom attached to each. walking distance to the beach (although some rugged roads and a downhill walk) and coco loco (best restaurant in playa flamingo). The screened in lounge area was the best feature in the house. had a cute bistro table and chairs facing the coast for morning coffee and breakfast.
    Shared pool area was nice as we were the only ones using it.
    The only problems with this rental were that it was a little off the beaten path and difficult to check in. We were very glad that it was still light out as were were trying to figure out where to check in bc in the dark we would have been completely lost and scared. We were given very vague directions and weren't sure where to go. When we found the office, the property owner, Juan Carlos, did not know we were coming. Luckily we connected and he still checked us into the house and the rental went just fine from that point on. Never met Juan Carlos or Maggie in person. The property is managed by a very nice couple however they only speak spanish.
    SOME ADVICE: go to the office attached to Coco Loco to check in.

  • Very practical apartment for family with 3 young kids. Proximity to MRT, Carrefour and some restaurants makes it very convenient to discover Taipei from a convenient base

  • We stayed at Casa Mega for about a month in January 2014 and loved every moment of it. The house is very well equipped with all the necessities. There is a caretaker and cleaner on site (Chico and Janori) who are very helpful and great people. Our son loved hanging out with Chico's dog, Oso, who was super friendly and often accompanied us to the beach.

    The house is on top of a hill overlooking the beach and has a great view. The walk to the beach is about 15 minutes. The walk back is all uphill so you will get a bit of exercise. We walked everyday and were never bothered by it. There is a shortcut to the beach right after Palms Resort and it is easy to miss so keep any eye on it to shorten your trip by 5-10 minutes.

    There is a grocery store (Massai) about 10 minutes drive from the house and has all the basic items. We were there for a month, cooked everyday, and never felt the need to go to a bigger grocery store. Chico can call a cab for you and you don't really need a car thought admittedly, we liked the independence of having a car. There is covered parking right outside the house. If you do rent a car, a 4X4 might be better than a sedan as you are on top of a hill.

    There are almost no negatives about the house but do keep in mind that it is an older house. We liked the character but it might be an issue for some. It is very well maintained though. Only the bedrooms have ACs, which was a non-issue for us as we spent 90% of our time on the patio, screened porch, or the beach and only used the ACs at night. There were some ants in the kitchen but talking to our friends, we realized they are everywhere in Costa Rica - part of being close to the nature. Just don't leave any sweet food out and you won't have any issues - we didn't. There is no washer/dryer in the house but Janori can do your washing for you for a small tip.

    Overall, a brilliant stay and we will gladly go again.

  • Maggie is very accomodating and gracious host. The apt is better than what the description.. It's literally steps away from the mrt and very accessible to shops, restaurants and tourist destinations.. Highly recommended and will definitely stay again if we'll be in taiwan.
