"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!"

"We stayed at Caja de Joyas condo for 10 days. The condo was just like the pictures on VRBO! We never had any problems at the condo. It had everything we needed and more! Never did any cooking but if we wanted to the condo was equipped with whatever we needed. Before we left for our trip Clement sent all kinds of information our way about Tamarindo and the area. That was so helpful since we had never been in this area of Cost Rica before. The condo is very secure and never at any time did we feel unsafe. We walked to the beach everyday and visited the grocery store around the corner several times. Very quiet area. Loved to sit on the patio and listen to the birds. If we ever go back to Tamarindo we would love to stay at Caja de Joyas again!"

"We just returned from our family vacation Sept 2015. It was absolutely amazing. I fell in love with Casa Paquita !!!! We did so many things in our 7 days. Our family all met from all over the United States. Noemie was fantastic!!!! She was so helpful and is the best cook ever. I know she meets many people but I felt very bonded to her and I will miss her and thank her for everything she did for us. It was the best time our family has ever spent together. The pool was the most fabulous pool we had a one and a half year old baby it was perfect for him to play in the pool. My brother walked to go surfing. We caught the most spectacular fish on a fishing trip. We had to leave at different days and Noemie made sure we got to our destination without any problems. It was a trip of a lifetime and I will never forget it and we hope to come back next year......"
