Tamarindo house description

Overlooking the point where Playa Tamarindo and Playa Grande intersect through the Tamarindo Estuary, El Chante is a tropical haven with sweeping ocean views that epitomizes any nature or surf lover’s idea of paradise.

A pioneer in luxury and sustainability, El Chante is inarguably the most beautiful – and eco-friendly – private house in all of costa rica. Each exquisite detail is placed with the utmost care and concern for the surrounding natural environment.

From an open-air architectural design eliminating the need for air-conditioning to recycled water irrigating the gardens, El Chante is a luxurious vacation rental you can feel good about.

Amid lush greenery and colorful fruit trees lay El Chante’s six distinct guest bungalows – each one just waiting to be discovered. Nestled in the trees, five of the bungalows act as individual bedroom suites, complete with their own private porch, master bath and bedroom decorated with authentic balinese furniture, wood carvings and traditional art.

Dip your toes in the infinity-edge pool or stroll through rich costa rican jungle up to the main bungalow, which features a state-of-the-art kitchen, open-air living room, dining area and entertainment cabina. Or, perhaps simply lounge in your personal villa and soak in pure seclusion that elicits a truly intimate connection to nature as you take in breathtaking ocean views of the waves pounding the sands of Tamarindo Beach.

At El Chante, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds: privacy and luxury set among nature with the comfort of knowing all the amenities, activities and excitement of downtown Tamarindo is right in your backyard.

We invite you to join us at El Chante and experience for yourself a one-of-a-kind paradise in Tamarindo. Indulge your senses and take pleasure knowing you’ve chosen the only house in costa rica built at the pinnacle of luxury, which simultaneously fosters a sustainable relationship with nature.

So come, escape to El Chante, a world apart with every convenience, comfort and care equipped to create memories guaranteed to last a lifetime…

Eco luxury -

Unlike anything that exists in the Costa Rican market, El Chante is a pioneer in sustainable luxury. Built in harmony with nature, El Chante is designed to make a minimal impact on the natural environment and instead, to work with and give back to the land surrounding it.

Sustainable features:
• In-house water treatment plant where all water used at El Chante is recycled and used to irrigate the gardens.
• Lush gardens built around large, natural trees that purify the air quality and keep the grounds cool.
• Composting system where extra organic waste and leftover food is used for fertilizer in the gardens.
• Open-air architectural design to promote ventilation, thus minimizing the need for ac and energy consumption.
• Constructed from locally harvested plantation wood.
