  • Great House

    "We really enjoyed the stay at Casa de las Olas. It was in the perfect location...being so close to the beach, and just out of the noise and traffic of Tamarindo, but yet close enough to walk down for dinner or other activities. My three year old loved the hammocks, outdoor showers and futon for watching TV. The wife thinks that with the included bikes, that we don't need to rent a car next time. That remains to be determined. Best vacation in a long time. Definitely will be returning."

  • Hidden Gem in Paradise

    "I am a seasoned traveler, having stayed at many resorts, hotels, private rentals, etc. all over the world for both business and pleasure. We traveled to Barefoot Villa on October 27th, with my wife, daughter and her two university girlfriends for a period of 1 week. We found BV to be everything it was described as, and more. It is set on a dead end road surrounded by lush green trees and flora native to the region, tranquil and quiet, conveniently located close to town and spectacular Guiones Beach. We were treated to the marvelous cooking of Nina; 3 healthy locally inspired meals a day, with fresh meats we purchased at the pescaderia (fish market), and local general market nearby. Everything else was provided prior to our arrival for off the shelf value plus a 20% service fee. Well worth the price and reasonable daily rate (we saved a small fortune by avoiding the restaurant option). We also procured the cleaning services of Laura 3 times during the week (one was included with the rental), which again was well worth the modest rate. Both ladies were well tipped for their awesome efforts. The house itself was spectacular; elegant and practical, with abundant space for the five of us. Angie has taken great care of ensuring all instructions, tips, local contacts, and everyday living details are carefully documented and accessible. We felt at home right away, and comfortably secure with the comprehensive yet easy to use security system. Our method of transportation was private shuttle from and to Liberia Airport, and 2 ATVs rented from David at Harbor Reef Hotel for local daily outings. This provided us with amazing opportunities to get to know the local area and beyond, without having to necessarily stay on the main roads. Angie has negotiated a discount with David's Guiones Beach Gear which made the ATV rentals very reasonable and far cheaper than a local car rental. Barefoot Villa also offers 3 bikes, 2 surfboards and a couple of boogie boards which were well used every day. All in all I would rate Barefoot Villa as one of our very top vacation rentals, in a spectacular and so far secluded region of amazing Costa Rica. We will be going back! I am happy to provide a personal reference, you can get my contact information from Angie."

  • Very comfortable home away from home

    "We stayed at the condo, for 2 1/2 weeks, and were able to get the feel of the condo, building, and the community. All were very relaxed, safe, and made us feel 'at home', in an exotic country. The condo lacks for nothing, with lots of extras, in the way of a paper-back library, storage room with all sorts of toys and beach items, and even a full spice rack, for your exotic cooking nights. Its about a 20 minute hike into Tamarindo, but as you can do most of it along the beach, it is hardly noticeable. If you don't mind a little walking, you don't need a car. WE would definitely stay here again."
