"Spending the last 5 days of our 10 day visit to Costa Rica at Villa Tamarindo was the perfect "Grand Finale"! The pictures are no doubt awesome, and one might imagine themselves being part of those pictures . . . but when you experience the sounds of the many visiting birds (from humming birds to toucans), smell the fragrance of the diverse flora, splash in the amazing pool and close out the day in the hot tub overshadowed with the ever changing sunsets; you know you have made the right decision renting this property, and this is just the outside!
Upon entering the villas (3 complete separate areas) uniquely crafted with detailed Balinese influence connected by the "L" shaped pool, providing community and allowing privacy at the same time. We cooked each morning in the well appointed kitchen, made drinks in the evening, and never once needed something that wasn't available. The books and comfortable couches made for a great planning zone for tomorrow's activities. The Poas Volcano National Park, (go early morning for your best chance to see the crator lake) and Zoo Avenue to see many rescue and rehab birds, reptiles and animals an their natural habitat.
The 2 master suite villas are very well laid out with comfortable queen size beds, high quality linen, and spacious master bath's. The outdoor lighting at night against the native plants make for works of art out each window!
We could have spent each day walking through and around the property discovering something different, the small iguanas sunning on the stepping stones, or the wrens singing as they picked insects from the trees!
Elias, the onsight caretaker of this property, is busy daily maintaining it's beauty, but he's is virtually invisible, respectful of your privacy but ready to help if needed!
A true Oasis, you have everything thing right here, so become part of the experience, we did and WOW!
Joe and Nancy are great to work with and gracious to allow us to rent their retirement home, my only hope is that they don't retire to soon as we want to return again!"
