Privately-held property on Costa Rica’s Gold Coast holds high appeal for buyers
In Costa Rica, 95% of beachfront property is considered concession property and is governed by the Maritime Zone Law and other specific regulations. This property can be leased from the government, but never owned.
“With concession properties the government can come in at any time and say ‘We’ve changed our mind, you can’t do this anymore’,” said developer Bob Spence, owner of Spence Enterprises, LLC. “That’s what makes the Palms so unique.”
The Palms Private Residence Club, located on Costa Rica’s popular Playa Flamingo, falls into the rare 5% category of privately titled beachfront property. The Palms is a private, member-owned residence club comprised of 32 two-bedroom Villas offering over 2,300 square feet of living space and all the services and amenities of a luxury resort. While many fractional purchasers could easily afford full ownership, they choose a Private Residence Club (PRC) for the advantages of resort amenities and services.
Along with a variety of high-end amenities, Spence says the aspect of ownership appeals to buyers. “There’s no risk of loss, no surprise rules or changes,” he explains. Despite America’s recent economic troubles, Spence says business has started to pick up.
“The recession greatly affected our business - buyers either didn’t have the money anymore or they were afraid to spend because of what was happening in the economy,” Spence said “But the last six months have really ramped up. We’ve seen an increase of about 300% in interest.”
The Palms currently has five Villas and 6 fractional properties under ownership. Each Villa’s living room opens to a large terrace that’s only a few steps from the infinity-edged pool and white sand beach. The Villas sleep six people comfortably and owners can travel with a large family or a few couples.
"You can literally walk out of your villa and within two minutes have your feet touching the sand of the beach," adds Spence. "There is no other resort/real estate development in Costa Rica where you can do that."

Experienced villa consultants from Villa Getaways share some things to do for an exciting & memorable Phuket villa vacation.
Phuket Muay Thai Boxing:
The passionate sport of Thai boxing is called Muay Thai, a fighting style that involves every part of the body including elbows, forearms and knees. Muay Thai is Thailand's national sport and is now gaining world renown as more and more international athletes flock to Thailand to learn this ancient martial art. If you don't mind the violence, it's well worth attending a Mauy Thai match for the drama, passion and traditional Thai cultural experience. Tip: Ask your villa manager for a personal recommendation on the best fight clubs and upcoming matches. A little local knowledge goes a long way.
Traditional Thai Massage:
Nothing beats Thai massage for a wonderfully blissful pampering experience performed by trained masseuses (generally all Thai massage therapists are women) in a soothing environment. Thai massage is usually performed without oil. The client will lie on a massage bed on the floor wearing comfortable, loose fitting clothing. The massage generally lasts two hours, during which the masseuse kneads and stretches the body, leaving you feeling totally relaxed. Tip: Villa staff can arrange for Thai massage and many other spa treatments to be performed in the comfort and privacy of your own holiday villa.
Phuket Market Experience:
To discover the real Phuket, try visiting one of the numerous local markets. Thai markets are a myriad of exotic sights, sounds and tastes. Along with piles of multicolored fruits and herbs and displays of tantalizing Thai food, don't be surprised to find vendors selling crispy fried grasshoppers and worms! Dozens of markets take place in Phuket every day, rain or shine.
Thai Cooking Classes:
If you adore the fiery flavours of Thai food and you'd love to learn the secrets of preparing these delicious dishes, try a cooking course at one of Thailand's traditional Thai Cooking Schools. A variety of courses offer options for beginners to experienced chefs and offer instruction in selecting ingredients, cooking techniques and achieving the perfect balance of flavours. Tip: Take advantage of the talented Thai chefs serving in your villa rental. Villa staff would be delighted to organise a personal cooking class where you can learn to prepare the very dishes you enjoyed at dinner.
