"This is my second visit to Villa Paraiso, the first one having been just as amazing. The pictures don't do justice to how gorgeous the house is - our group rarely left the house. Rosa, Luis, and Jesus were incredibly accommodating, making sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I already miss Rosa's delicious breakfasts! I'm counting down to the days when I can take my third trip to Villa Paraiso - if you're looking for a place to stay in Tamarindo, look no further and book Villa Paraiso!"

"We stayed at the condo for two weeks. It was our first visit to Costa Rica. The unit was as advertised. It was clean, safe, and in a great location. The condo is easy walking distance via the beach or the street to numerous restaurants and stores. The beach club across the street was a great place to spend the day. The beach is beautiful, the food is good and the staff is very helpful. (It is a beach club, so no outside drink or food). Bob and the staff at the condo were all very helpful with arranging tours, restaurant recommendations, calling taxis. They also provided a ride to the grocery store for us so we could stock up for our stay. The unit was cleaned regularly during our stay. They washed and changed the bedding and all towels on top of the regular cleaning. Great place to stay! We will stay here again our next trip to the area."

"This was our first time to Costa Rica and we could not have been happier with our stay. Our family of four stayed for a week and we loved the condo. It was spacious, nicely decorated and had fantastic views. We loved the location in Play Langosta because my fifteen year old son was able to walk to the beach to surf.
If you have never been to Tamarindo, Playa Langosta is a great area to stay. It is about a mile away from the touristy area of Tamarindo and very safe and quiet (Costa Rica seemed very safe in general). We were able to get our fill of the busy city center of Tamarindo and then retreat back to solitude at the condo to enjoy the beach and pool. The Horizontes complex is very well maintained with 24 hour guards and the property management office was across the street and very responsive to any questions. this is a great condo for a family to stay in and the owners were very responsive and accommodating as we planned our trip.
We drove in from San Jose, which was a very scenic drive (about 4 hours) and we ranged quite a bit on excursions from Tamardindo. if you go, make a road trip to the Hacienda Gualachepelin - great zip lining, horseback riding, river tubing and hot springs about two hours away near Liberia. We also made it down to Playa Negra to see some of the best surf in the world. Our friends rented a house in Playa Negra and we made it there several times. For us, Playa Negra homes and Playa Grande homes were too isolated so we loved being within walking distance of Tamarindo. You won't go wrong with this condo....

"A stay at Villa Encantada is simply a magical experience. As you arrive, the beautiful Mediterranean architecture gives you a glimpse of what is to come. Entering the private courtyard you are welcomed to a luxurious oasis boasting a magnificent private pool with a refreshing fountain surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Several sitting areas provide you with choices of sun or shade complete with ceiling fans, stereo speakers, comfortable cushioned furniture and lighting perfect for romantic evenings.
Upon entering the Villa itself there is an open plan concept featuring a well appointed chef's kitchen, large dining table and comfortable living area with flat screen cable TV and music system. The plush furnishings, warm colors and custom made tile and woodwork create a most comfortable environment. Moving through the Villa there is a convenient half bath and an outdoor dining area complete with high end grill. In the rear is the private and magnificent Master Suite complete with a walk in closet/dressing/laundry area and a huge shower with screened access to the private rear garden. Upstairs are two additional, well appointed bedroom suites, one with a wonderful balcony overlooking the pool, that complete a very well designed floor plan.
The Villa is in the very desirable Playa Langosta area surrounded by high end properties. The beautiful beach, great for walking, exploring and enjoying magnificent sunsets, is just a short walk through a land preserve. All the necessities such as a food and beverages, breakfast/lunch/dinner are again just a short stroll away. A longer walk or a short drive brings you to the bustling town of Tamarindo with all the beach activities and nightlife you could want. Close enough to enjoy and far enough to maintain peace and quiet!
One of the benefits not to be missed is complimentary access to the Langosta Beach Club. Within walking distance (also by the beach at low tide), it is a great spot to enjoy the beach, spa and gym, cocktails at the bar and poolside dining. Highly recommended.
Russ and Duncan have created a Magical Oasis that made our Costa Rican trip a truly enchanted experience. We are anxiously looking forward to our return visit. Pura Vida!"
