  • A perfect villa for a perfect vacation

    "The three generations of our family, eight adults and six children ages 8 to 16, spent ten wonderful days at this dream house that is set in a perfect location. The trip was to celebrate a 50th anniversary and it was important that the holiday be memorable for all. The house is very well set up. Each of the adult couples had a very quiet, spacious bedroom with ensuite bathroom. There was a roomy bedroom for the two girls and a spacious bedroom for the four boys. The open concept living area, which has a beautiful view towards the ocean, was very large, with two sitting areas. The dining room table easily seated the fourteen of us, and the well equipped kitchen was large and well set up for a number of cooks to be working at the same time. Off the living area was a large balcony facing the ocean. On the entrance level was a very large room that dwarfed the ping pong table and and gave entrance to the outside and the large, well maintained pool. We made great use of the large, covered area beside the pool and also the barbecue. From this outside area we could walk right onto a beach that is shared by just a few houses and is usually deserted. It was a lovely place to be and the bay in front had excellent snorkelling. We had taken water shoes but really did not need them. We were amazed at how quiet the whole area was. Debbie and Royce are excellent property managers and e-mail questions and requests were promptly dealt with. With the house there is access to the Hacienda Pinilla Beach Club. The huge pool there and the very long and beautiful beach were great places to spend days swimming, surfing, playing in the waves and relaxing. We cannot imagine a more ideal villa and location to have spent a very memorable vacation. We have come back raving about it and recommending it to other families and groups of people."

  • Family Bonding Time

    "Renting the villa through Kenny and Annick was a breeze. We emailed, made two payments and voilà, we were booked! Getting to the house was also a breeze. Our driver (we had booked in advance through the owners of the Casa) was waiting for us at the airport. He took us to the office where we retrieved keys to the condo. He dropped us off at the gate of the complex. Nelson, the guard on duty that day, helped us figure out the keys and helped with the luggage. The condo was ready for us: it was air conditioned, clean, furnished, had fresh linens and had every kitchen tool needed to cook our meals (except maybe some bbq tongs, which we ended up buying) plus some spices. The kids decided who would get which room and then changed into their bathing suits. We were off to the beach!!! Tamarindo Beach is very large at low tide and quite long. Walking it from one end to the other takes about 20 minutes if you walk briskly. The walk from to the condo to the beach is so short that the kids would often return to the condo during the day for a break from the waves. We took advantage of the pool at the complex where most of the neighbours were Canadians like us. The ocean water is so warm and it didn't even rain once. Every morning, my husband and I would get up early to walk on the beach. We either walked up to the Estuary or to Langosta beach all the way to the Barcelo. Either way, we would pick up a few items from the grocery store before returning to the condo. We would put together a nice breakfast which we ate at the patio table as we did all our other meals. We usually shopped at the Super 2001 and the Langosta store but went twice to the auto mercado. Food in Tamarindo is much more expensive than we had anticipated but we saved by eating at the house. The house is very well situated: close to the beach, walking distance to center of town and adjacent a lush park where monkeys like to hang out. Visiting the garden were racoons (in the evening for a quick hello), a few geckos, iguanas, birds, huge grasshoppers and a few bats. Every morning, the gardener would hose down our patio area and water the plants, leaving the area clean and welcoming. A cleaning lady came 3 times during our 12 day stay. Though we kept the condo clean, she made it so much cleaner by washing the floors, the towels, the sheets (once during the stay), cleaning the counters and dusting, cleaning the washrooms. The staff was always very friendly. We felt safe at all times."

  • Gorgeous villa and wonderful vacation!

    "We had a wonderful vacation and this villa was perfect for our family. My college-age children each had their own bedroom and bath and my husband and I had the spacious master suite. The furnishings are all lovely, French windows and doors across the entire unit upstairs and down offer the most beautiful view of the Pacific. The terrace downstairs and the balcony upstairs have quality furnishings as well as a relaxing hammock! We watched the most beautiful sunsets right out our back door. The beach club is great but we also enjoyed walking to the local beaches. We enjoyed both the first class golf course and the well maintained and lit (so you can play when the sun goes down) tennis courts. It is a short and pleasant walk to the JW Marriott if you want the amenities of a large resort. Best of all was the assistance of the wonderful lady who manages the property. She gave us the best recommendations for restaurants and activities and went above and beyond for us arranging our car rental and a few private tours and experiences. Make sure you walk down the beach to Lola's for lunch, don't miss the Beach Box which is also by Playa Avellana and serves the best burritos we have ever had!! Another great restaurant is Villa Deveena. Its a little off the beaten path but well worth the drive! But we had many great meals at places in Tamrindo like Patagonia (steaks), Dragonfly, and Pangas Beach Club. You have to rent a car and I would recommend an SUV. Lots of dirt roads or roads with pot holes, etc. Part of the adventure!! There is a fully stocked supermarket in Tamarindo only a 20 minute drive from the villa. The Costa Rican people were warm and friendly and we felt very safe the whole time we were there. We can't wait to go back!!!"

  • Great Location and Clean Conditions

    "Just returned for a second time at this condo. It's been about 7 years and what a difference. The grounds and pool area have grown in to provide a lush tropical setting once you leave the door. The condo has loads of upgrades with an up to date kitchen and washer & drier. Each room has a private balcony with a bathroom. The location and style allows you to feel the Costa Rican culture, it's located on a quiet dirt road away from the more heavily traveled tourist areas. The location is 5mins walk to the beach and town. Tamarindo remains a down to earth Costa Rican town, but we did find a few new restaurants that were adding a touch of global panache to the local scene. We hit local spots for awesome fried red snapper served Tico style with head & tail, and found a new Argentine location serving home made noodles. This is a great location for anyone that wants the beach town lifestyle of Costa Rica, highly suggest renting this modern up to date condo in a super spot."
