  • 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!!!"

  • 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!"

  • Paradise at Casa Paquita

    "Our group of 4 adults spent the week of February 7th 2015 at Casa Paquita. The property was fantastic with a great ocean front location. The beautiful pool was a center point of activities where we enjoyed swimming, dining, and fantastic sunsets all with beautiful ocean views and well manicured gardens. The back yard is lushly landscaped with paths leading down to a gate to the ocean. The ocean itself is offers fantastic views and is great for exploring, but the waves come ashore across volcanic rock making swimming directly behind the property impossible. There are some small safe entrances to the ocean nearby and large swimming beaches within walking distances. The living area and kitchen were inviting and well maintained. The upstairs patio offers another great area to relax and enjoy fantastic views. The property, inside and out, is multi-tiered with numerous areas for groups to congregate. There were only 4 of us, but we commented how members of a much larger group could find many places to enjoy a little privacy. The bedrooms are very large and comfortable with vaulted ceilings. The construction quality of the house is top notch, but I found the flamboyant use of tiles in the bathrooms is a little over the top. This is definitely not a new house, but it is well maintained. The housekeeper, Nohemy, was unbelievable. She took care of the property, our laundry, dishes, and breakfast all while helping keep a watchful eye on the property. On the last point the property felt very secure with an electric gate securing the front and a tall, but very nice, fence securing the rear. Finally there is a very sweet and aging dog named smokey there who will bark at strangers, but learns guests immediately. Smokey will keep her distance if desired, but we tried to adopt her during the stay and greatly enjoyed the company of this pet. I have to give final credit to the gardener and pool service who were there daily to keep the place looking its best. I would absolutely go back to Casa Paquita and recommend it to anyone considering a trip to this area of Costa Rica."

  • Love it!

    "The condo was an awesome place to stay. close to the beach, close to restaurants, no need to drive anywhere. We meet loads of great people; visitors like myself and so many great local folks. The condo looks like the photos on VRBO. The security is great and they open the door for you every time you exit and return. They are there 24 hours a day. Nothing stolen, and so much gain! Meaning - meeting folks from different countries is a blessing. The world is a great place! Thank you Frederick to allow me to rent your beautiful condo in Tamarindo!"
