Palm Villa is housed on a 4 acre beach front directly overlooking the popular Playa Carmen surf spot. This surreal villa has 3 air conditioned bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. The contemporary kitchen is well-equipped (there’s a barbeque as well) and ready for your use. In addition to several other alluring features, the Palm villa offers you your own private swimming pool and a pool table.  Guests can keep themselves busy with the 100 plus odd films in the home cinema lounge with a movie projector. If holiday movies are not your thing, relax in the hammocks or the sofa facing the pool while watching Howler monkeys swing from the canopies of over 75 different fruit trees including coconut, mango, apple, papayas, banana, lime and almond within the property’s lush compound. The villa also offers a caretaker and daily housekeeping services.

The villa embodies most things that Costa Rica stands for. It is contemporary yet rustic and allows you to enjoy the area’s beaches and forests from close quarters. If you’re idea of a Costa Rican vacation is relishing your morning tea in a naturally breathtaking front yard to the backdrop of the hypnotic sound of the lapping waves, this is your place.
