Tamarindo villa description

Villa Kanda is the perfect combination between the beach and the mountains. Located only a few minutes from the ocean, this villa is contemporary haven with a very tropical touch: thatched roof palapa, lush tropical palm trees, and breathtaking valley and ocean views, with amazing sunsets all year round.
The state-of-the-art kitchen, connected in an open layout with the living and swimming pool area, make this villa ideal for a family or a group vacation. From every room of the house you enjoy the splendid views of the surrounding mountains and valleys, where howler monkeys and countless bird species may be spotted.
Villa Kanda offers complete privacy as it is nestled in a gated community, on the top of a mountain and overlooking unspoiled views of the sabana countryside. However, if you are looking for fun and activity, the villa is located only 15 minutes away from Tamarindo, where you can enjoy all type of beach activities: surfing, fishing, diving, sunset sail tours, as well as shops, restaurants and night life.
The house has two levels: the first one with all the living space and one of the guest bedrooms, and the second level has the other guest bedroom, the spacious Master Bedroom and an ample terrace with breathtaking views.
The tatched roof living area is a great space for enjoying your tropical escapade, overlooking the swimming pool and the surrounding mountains. A fully equipped kitchen that opens into the living area creates the perfect atmosphere for families or friends to get together and enjoy the sunny days and breezy nights of Guanacaste.
Each of the three bedrooms has a king size bed, and one of the bedrooms have two additional single beds, so the house may comfortably accommodate up to 8 adults (although we can make arrangements to sleep a few more). The master has a large bathtub, a desk area, tv and a beautiful terrace overlooking the magnificent lanscape. The house also offers a tv room, perfect to watch sports or for kids, and wifi is available in all rooms of the house.
The house is located on a hill, so a 4 wheel drive is necessary to access the property.
