A Magical Oasis in a Perfect Location!
"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!"

"This was a beautiful house. The four bedrooms are all like suites, only 2 units have to share a bathroom. One unite stands alone like a carriage suite. The house is on a road outside Tamarindo. It was a very peaceful stay. The manager, Julius couldn't have been nicer. Great communications via email and in person. He was always just a phone call away."

"We loved this villa! It was very well kept, nicely decorated, clean, and pretty much perfect. As well as the villa being clean, the pool and pool area were clean and very well kept. We spent a lot of time lounging out by the pool enjoying the gorgeous vegetation and animals. The beach was a short walk as well as the center of town only being about a 10 minute walk. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone!"
