Extrovert? You found your place. Privacy upstairs, endless interaction possibilities downstairs. You pick. No where else can boast such a set-up. 2 x 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartments great for 4-8 people. Huge terrace with BBQ overlooking pool.
Even if the calendar says booked, email us as we have 2 identical apartments!
Extrovert? You found your place. Privacy upstairs, endless interaction possibilities downstairs. You pick. Nowhere else can boast such a set-up. Two x 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartments great for 4-10 people. Big terrace with BBQ overlooking pool.
Sitting above Playa Grande's premier surf shop, you have your own spacious apartment upstairs but a full staff ready to help you downstairs. Concierge on-tap. Conversation and interaction on a whim. Feel like part of something while on vacation, but without fear of losing your personal space.
Some regular comments from customers whom we show our apartments to "WOW! I never knew something so great existed above the shop!" "We MUST book this place next time we come", "I am going to tell my friends back home about this place" and "you guys have really found your niche here".... though we have only recently listed on AirBnB, we have great reviews from years of service on Trip Advisor, VRBO and you can read more on our website for Frijoles Locos Surf Shop.
This listing is for one of our two 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartments. Each apartment has its own calendar for availability. If you wish to book both apartments, send us a message as we do a special price if both apartments are rented together.
Pool is shared between the two apartments. There is a bamboo fence providing a little privacy between pool area and back of surf shop... however it is not considered private. Our friendly staff will be going about their work, and although they are very considerate of your space, you will likely hear them going about their work... There is an outdoor hot water shower beside pool, poolside toilet, upstairs separate rancho space to hang out and listen to nature- great space for the teens to chill or for you to practice yoga. I sometimes like to hide there to get emails done without interruption as no one looks for me up there :)
Important note- the laundry facilities are operated by our cleaning lady- her days off are Sunday and Monday. One load of laundry is included free in a 7 day stay, however additional loads are $10 per load. Water restrictions are in place until further notice and we ask guests to be very conscientious when it comes to responsible management of water.
We provide detailed info upon reservation confirmation. If you read the info package and decide that our policies don't go with your vacation style, you are welcome to change your mind without penalty within 5 days of your reservation.
Interazione con gli ospiti
Corynne and Ian, along with son Finnegan (7 years old) are the active owners/ managers of Frijoles Locos Surf Shop, however it is the wonderful staff who are there when you need them- just pop into the surf shop and chat with them between 9.15am and 5.30pm. Our full time staff downstairs in our surf shop are always ready to help you (so long as the retail store isn't super busy!)... email contact always attended to if you have special requests.
We respect your privacy and won't come knocking on your door unless there is an urgent message... yet we are available to help when you need us. Email continues to be a good way to address issues such as malfunctioning AC or other property management problems while you are here especially if the retail store downstairs is busy!
Our concierge service prior to arrival is second to none, and we recommend a little advance planning to maximize relaxation and adventure balance when you are here.
Please read info manual that will be emailed to you after booking and advise immediately of any concerns. We would prefer to cancel your booking than to have any mismatched expectations where you are unhappy.
Located next door to Playa Grande school, the sounds of happy kids playing are common during the morning until around 12 noon. On the other side, is located another lot owned by Frijoles Locos, and no other buildings are nearby.
Un giro nei dintorni
Renting a car is highly recommended for those of you who know who you are :) If a 7-8 minute walk to the beach pulling a beach cart laden with beach equipment or carrying a surfboard to the beach doesn't sound like fun, rent a car!
If you might want to search for smaller, or different waves, definitely rent a car. We loan you straps to put surfboards on the roof with any rental from Frijoles Locos Surf Shop... so its easy and no fuss...
If a 12 minute bicycle ride to the nearest decent sized mini-supermarket sounds like a drag... rent a car! If you don't like to feel isolated, ask us for help in arranging a rental car to be dropped off at your apartment - we recommend getting an airport shuttle on arrival, having a car delivered next day when you are relaxed and settled in... keep it for 3 or 4 days... use it to get groceries, to explore the greater area, to do some activities that cost SO much more if you have to include the transport eg. One Day Adventure or a trip to Playa Danta...
Don't rely on public transport- the bus comes once in the morning, and once in the afternoon. Those of you who can really take a step back and take it slow, with a little adventure, can get by just renting bikes and walking around the area. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance. A taxi to Tamarindo costs around $30 one way. Rental car can be dropped off to the apartment with advance planning and parking is available on the property.
Altre cose da evidenziare
Playa Grande, Costa Rica is one of the worlds' most beautiful gems. A beach over 4km long, white sand, is perfect for long walks . Come see the Leatherback Turtles nesting between October and February. A surfer's paradise for all levels, Playa Grande has something for everyone.
If you rent both apartments for a group of 8, there are no noise restrictions as we have no direct neighbors. If you are renting just one apartment, we expect consideration of your neighbors, and noise to cease by 9.30pm. Sunset is around 6-6.30pm and sunrise around 5.30am so this area is an early to bed, early to rise area. Your bedrooms have wonderful block out curtains but we suggest you get out and enjoy the early mornings before it gets too hot!
We are a non-smoking property and discourage smoking even on the outdoor terrace area.
We have a strong commitment to the environment, encourage composting, recycling, and conscientious use of the AC ie. turning it off when you leave the apartment and making sure windows and doors are kept shut while it is on.
We are pet-friendly, and welcome well behaved pets. A pet-deposit of $200 is requested, for circumstances such as damage caused by pets, excess pet hair stuck in floor rugs etc.

Frijoles Locos is much more than just a place to stay. Started by "The Beans" (a family of three- Corynne (Australian), Ian (US) and Finnegan (AUS, US, Costa Rican) back in 2007, Frijoles Locos is also a surf shop, place to rent great surfboards, connect with an incredible concierge service and so much more!
Playa Grande has been our home since 2003, and we love to share the love and passion for our small community.
Corynne has a passion for healthy living, having studied Naturopathy and massage therapy, and finds Playa Grande is the place where she feels healthiest in the world.
Ian has a passion for surf, surf and more surf, especially surfing with his son, Finnegan.
Finnegan loves to surf, fish, do arts and crafts and play with his friends.
The Beans have traveled a lot, and appreciate a vacation rental that comes stocked with the essentials, where the little things have been thought of. The comfort and enjoyment of guests is of utmost priority.
Your stay is only made awesome by the people who you will meet here- our team- the staff members in the surf shop, the surf instructors, the maintenance guys, and of course, your very own Guest Liason and Concierge Manager, Jeannette Berens. We look forward to seeing you soon!
