"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!"

"The pros: the condo is in a nice complex with an attractive pool and hot tub that we enjoyed almost every day, most of the time having it all to ourselves. The condo has almost everything you need (except food...which is shockingly expensive). The master room is spacious with a nice size bathroom. I would have opted for different sinks as the bowls take up much of the counter space but there is a shelf below the sink too. The owners provide hand, dish and body (liquid) soaps and laundry detergent and fabric softener, plus the linens and beach towels, all included in the rental fee. The kitchen is well stocked with the essentials you need to make your own meals "at home." The views from the balcony are just beautiful! There wasn't always a breeze so it was sometimes too muggy with bugs around to enjoy but other times it was absolutely perfect. All the people we met at the complex, around town, and on tours were very nice and helpful. The owners were also a pleasure to work with.
The cons: the beds in the second room do not have the foam topper that the master bed has so they aren't as comfortable for adults (headboards aren't attached to the beds). The sheets and towels have some stains (the spare king-size sheets have a tear in them), several of them just need to be replaced. The condo has a few maintenance items that need to be addressed, mostly normal wear and tear, hard water, and a humid environment. There is an issue with a window/door leaking in the master bedroom when really strong winds accompany storms. We were without water 3 times so I would definitely recommend putting water in bottles and pots to keep on hand. We only lost power once, just for 10 minutes. The roads to the condo are rough so be prepared to experience the "Costa Rican car massage." The pool wasn't always cleaned so we spent a few hours skimming the pool (had we mentioned this to the maintenance staff, I'm sure it would have been addressed). Even after resetting and rebooting the modem and wireless router, the wireless internet in the condo rarely every worked so we were often using the wireless internet from the complex instead.
Other important info: taxis into town are anywhere from $5 to $10 one way (higher fare is to go to the Auto Mercado which has the largest selection around and gluten free items). Do NOT change money at the airport! Everywhere we went accepted US dollars.
Overall, we really enjoyed our 2 week stay at this well-priced condo!"

"We spent a wonderful three weeks at Casa de Valencia sharing our time with family and friends who came and went during the time we were there. For the first time in our many travels, though never to Costa Rica, we did not rent a car. Given the location of the villa and all of the activities and transportation options available, we did not miss having one. Getting to and from the airport in Liberia was very easy and can be arranged through the rental office or a van or taxi can be easily arranged from the airport.
The villa itself was very comfortable and the outdoor patio, dining and pool area wonderful. We spent most of our time outdoors and loved the visits from birds, iguanas and monkeys. The staff at Casablanca was friendly and helpful and provided any assistance we needed. We did most of our own cooking and enjoyed the outdoor grill, fully equipped kitchen and proximity to the local grocery store and fresh fish market. Kenny provided a handy wheeled shopping cart which made life very easy!
We enjoyed the beach, ocean, pool and various tours of the area. Most of all, we loved being able to hang out on our wonderful and secluded patio reading, and reveling in the Pura Vida life. We enjoyed it so much that we're hoping to spend a month next year at wonderful Casa de Valencia."

"Just returned from a wonderful week. Our penthouse unit was perfect for our group. We were celebrating our sons 50th birthday. He brought a friend with him to enjoy some of the activities in Costa Rica. The constant sound of the ocean will be missed. The apartment is well equipped and quite comfortable. One suggestion to the owner would be to have flash lights in the 3 bedrooms should the power go out which is common in Costa Rica. We lost power only once for a couple of hours. Cleaning service came twice during our stay which was an unexpected bonus. Security is very tight within our complex...guards on duty 24/7... The pool area is great place to meet other guests and owners who will share with you best of tours to take. Rental agency can arrange all the tours. I do think a car is a must since town is more than a mile down a dirt road...cab costs $5 should you not have a car. All and all we loved the location of this unit and would stay there again."
