Private and Secure
"My husband and I had a lovely two weeks .
We had the privacy we desired , access to the beach club
and appliances that worked .
Close enough to everything but far enough for a quiet oasis.
The private garden and dipping pool were a pleasure ."

Good way to see how the locals live on permanent vacation
"My wife and I visited Casa Boaz on our honeymoon and had a good time in Tamarindo. We stayed in the Casita Romantica, which was plenty of room with a full kitchen and bathroom. The property itself is great for nature lovers, as there is wildlife all over the property, which you will want to become comfortable and acquainted with if you're going to enjoy Costa Rica, because it's everywhere. The pool was nice and cool and the outdoor shower was key. Dee was kind enough to allow us to use the surfboards for a few days, and we had a great time at the beach. She pointed us in the direction of some very good restaurants that you likely wouldn't find otherwise. She was very helpful.
Casa Boaz would likely be perfect for a large group of people who wanted to stay together, but also wanted their own privacy. The property isn't too far from the town, and as long as it's not raining (muddy roads), it's not that bad of a walk. Otherwise, I'd rent a car, bike or ATV to zip around to some cool spots. Thanks again, Dee."

"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!"

"The villa was exactly as advertised - spacious, clean and well equiped; great response from the owner to all our questions, view from the balconies were spectacular, felt very safe, all the onsite staff were very helpful. We enjoyed the pools, horse back riding, walking the hacienda and the ocean - we walked on the beach to the Marriotte, Beach Club (enjoyed thier pools) and Lola's. We cooked most of our breakfasts and dinners so made it very affordable for a family of 7 including a 10 month old; took advantage of several excursions in the area; used our rental car and the Mariotte consierage. I would certainly recommend it for an adult or family vacation."
