Villa Tamarindo was like a dream except EVERYTHING was real!
"I escaped Paris in France to stay in the villa for a week. 7 days of happiness in this incredible place. I guess my words won't quite describe everything because you have to see it by yourself but let me give it a try! I can assure you that when I first put a foot in the villa, my eyes went bigger. It was incredibly BEAU-TI-FUL! First time i saw such a place! The villa is built around the pool and all the rooms + living room have glass windows so that you can admire the view from your bed. You go to bed eating some fresh mangos while looking at the sunset, i mean what else? I woke up with roosters and it was so nice. I slept so well because this place feels so peaceful. Also you have a grey table outside around a pretty garden for your breakfast and dinner while being happy looking either at the cows or the mountains or the thunderstorm! After hiking i couldn't wait to swim in LA PISCINA and jump in the hot tub :) In addition, the entire space has everything you need (laundry, speakers, dishwasher and goggles ^^) and it is very spacious! To be honest, I could not expect better, because Villa Tamarindo is perfection. Counting the days until I m going to go back and improve my spanish! Pura Vida :)"

"We have stayed at many VRBO's and this by far is our favorite. Barry and Claudia are great people and helped make this trip very memorable. Aad and Marian are a sweet couple who did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. I would highly recommend having them pick you up from the airport - that made the first day so much easier (and it would be difficult to find Casa Dos Leones on your own for the first time). The views are incredible. The home is very modern and had everything we could have wanted. The location was perfect, close enough for many easy day trips with enough time at the end of the day to enjoy the home, pools and views. We rented a car and driving was easy enough, but you must add the GPS in your rental, we could not have done it without it. Beside the fact that this home is everything (and more) than the description states, Barry, Claudia, Aad, and Marian are the most helpful and kind people you could ask for. They gave us excellent suggestions, tips, ideas, and information to make our stay very comfortable and memorable. They were quick to answer any of our questions and all of their suggestions are right on. When we go back to Atenas, this will be our #1 choice for a rental. Thank you Barry, Claudia, Aad and Marian - you are wonderful people and your help and home made our vacation a true paradise. Anyone who choses to rent this home will not be disappointed."

"My family spent two weeks at Colina Paula and had a spectacular time! My daughter loved the pool and I loved waking up every morning at sunrise, opening the double doors on both sides of the house and enjoying a cup of Costa Rican coffee in the rocking chair. The location was convenient to downtown Atenas. We took white cabs to and from the city - cost only around $3 American one way. We got connected with Bunki Tours and took three personal tours led by Marian and Aad; ziplining, Toledo coffee plantation tour, Poas volcano and Waterfall Gardens. All trips were excellent and much nicer than going on a bus with a bunch of other tourists. The caretakers, Piet and Yvonne, were very accommodating. Piet was willing to pick us up from the airport at 1:15am. We will certainly visit Costa Rica again and will likely stay at Colina Paula! Thanks!"

"For the last 8 years we've been nearly every year at Finca Miramonte and it was and is like a home for us.
It is ideal as a base to discover the whole country and to start adventurous trips from here. So much you can reach in a short drive: oceans, volcanoes, mountains and the capital city. But also it is one of the best places we know to relax, to read and write. The sensational garden with lots of tropical fruits, the nice pool, the fully equipped house and the nice walks on and around the big finca makes this place perfect for individualists who don't need all day animation. Also the very warm support of the owners M. and B. makes this place so comfortable. We highly recommend it!"
