Daytime activities and excursions are abundant in the Guanacaste Province and concierge services are available upon request. Whether it is deep sea fishing, touring a nearby volcano or cloud forest, or just a peaceful boat ride up the Tamarindo estuary, everything is just a phone call away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We recently had the opportunity to visit Villa Artemis overlooking Tamarindo. We arrived late without having time to eat dinner, due to a connecting flight problem, no worries though our van driver was at the airport to meet our group and upon arrival to the property we were greeted to cold beer and hot pizza, plus enough groceries for our breakfast the next morning. This was made possible by William (the property manager). William and Freddy (the grounds keeper) are the best; both will do everything in their power to make your stay a remarkable one. Villa Artemis has internet access, air conditioning in each or the 4 bedrooms, a large TV in the living room, full kitchen with dishes, laundry room, and the best view in Tamarindo. The house has recently been fully remodeled; there is a pool outside the living area, and a large deck, which is the perfect for sipping cocktails and watching amazing sunsets overlooking Playa Tamarindo and the Pacific Ocean. This was our first trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica, but we are sure it will not be our last. Highly recommended

excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I went there last year on january with my family and some friends. I had a great time, Cecilia (owner) was great, thank you so much, we had a wonderful vacation. Thank Sonia and his husband for their kindness and help.

the only dislike were the lack of some accomodities like no A/C, no internet access, and no TV. Other than that if you're in the mood, like we were, of being with the natural environment, adventure and enjoying without this services you'll have the best trip ever.

Even if we didn't had A/C, by being at the top of the tamarindo hill you get a cool breeze. And at Tamarindo center you can find the "internet cafe's" that we were missing at the beginning.

The gravel road to get to the house was a little messy but for us part of the adventure. It really wasn't comparable with the location of the house and the kindness of the people. I definitely recommend the place to everyone who reads this, the price payed doesn't show a bit of what we got.

Fantastic villa with sunset and beach overlook

  • 5 of 5

This house beat our expectations. The views from the patio of the beach and sunset were just spectacular. The house was clean and spacious and the hospitality was fantastic. Every request was met promptly and Miner, the house attendant, and William, the property manager, were wonderful to work with. The house is on top of the hill and can be a bit of a hike up. Most of our group walked down & up the hill daily, while it was hard, it was doable if you are in decent shape. Just down the hill you have the beaches, bars and restaurants, and getting a taxi back up the hill was very easy. I cannot recommend this house more!

This week was an amazing week!!! We loved being back at Villa Artemis! Beautiful house & yard!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time last July that we had to come back! Stunning views! There is a wonderful breeze on the property with birds singing and howler monkeys swinging about! The inside of the house is just as gorgeous! Beautiful white walls with rich dark stain. The kitchen, dining and living area is all open and very spacious. The windows all around the house offer inside/outside living. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are unique and modern. The property was very clean and well stocked with towels for the pool. We love the local people and will definitely keep coming back! Pura Vida!

Best View in Tamarindo!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Artemis is an absolutely beautiful home with stunning views of Tamarindo and the ocean. We spent many morning coffees on the back deck enjoying the view and the sound of the ocean.

We were two families, a total of ten, and were very comfortable in the spacious and well appointed rooms. We enjoyed a lot of local food but also cooked in for many meals and had all the provisions needed to do so. It feels like a luxury home but with a feeling of "being home".

The kids enjoyed the pool, the howler monkeys and other local wildlife. There is plenty to do in the area, or you can just can relax with the best view around of a tropical paradise from the house/deck/pool!

The support staff are also all very helpful and unobtrusive.

It was a dream vacation and we hope to return again one day!

I went with my wife and ten year old twin boys. Villa Artemis was perfect for us.

We arrived around noon on Saturday and decided to get some lunch downtown before heading up to the house. We ate a a great spot right on the beach. What a way to start a vacation!

Then I called Willy, the manager so he could meet us and take us to the house. He met us precisely as planned and is a very nice and helpful guy who speaks impeccable English. We followed him up the mountain to the house. As we made a right towards the house, we were greeted with the most amazing view that any of us had ever experienced.

Then, we got to the house. We met Miner (sp?), who is a resident groundskeeper and all around great guy. Miner and Willy helped us with our bags into the house and Willy gave us the grand tour. Words and pictures just don't do it justice. Truly amazing.

The house is absolutely beautiful. White walls complimented by a dark red/brown stone floor and beautiful wooden beams everywhere. The kitchen was incredibly clean and well-stocked with utensils, pots, pans, dishes, coffee pot, etc.

The master bedroom is on the second floor. We figured out quickly that opening the large windows on either side of that bedroom creates the most beautifully calming breeze. All of the rooms have air conditioners, but we never felt the need to turn them on. The big windows allow for excellent breezes throughout the house.

My kids picked one of the downstairs room with an attached bathroom, bunk beds, a larger bed (king?), and a smaller (twin?) bed. Despite the room having four beds, there is plenty of room. There were two other bedrooms that we left alone. One of them is at the end of the house with floor to ceiling windows and an incredible view. Don't get me wrong, almost all of the rooms have incredible views, but that one is something else!

The pool/patio. Holy guacamole! Villa Artemis undoubtedly has the best view of any location that my family has ever visited. From the pool/patio area, you can see the town of Tamarindo. At night you can hear the the sounds of the ocean.

We spent our first full day lounging by the pool, reading, and just being amazed!

I could write a book, but it looks like I've hit a character limit. My whole family highly recommends Villa Artemis. Perhaps the best description is from one of my sons at the moment of departure: "I don't want to leave." Me neither buddy. Me neither.

A perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family has traveled quite a bit over the years, so when my 20 year old son summed up our time at Villa Artemis as "the best vacation ever" I knew that we had found a gem. The house is spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. The layout with 4 individual bedroom/bathrooms on two levels, a central living area/kitchen, outdoor side porch with hammocks, and pool overlooking the beach is ideal, providing just the right amount of personal space. The view of Tamarindo Beach and beyond is nothing short of spectacular, especially at sunrise and sunset. When we arrived, there was fresh fruit and coffee waiting for us and William (the rental agent) and Minor (the groundskeeper) are extremely friendly and helpful. We spent time on the beach, went to the rodeo in Villareal (a few kms away), chartered a fishing boat, and some of us took a day trip to the Rincon de la Vieja National Park (two of my three adult sons could not be torn away from the house). Not only would I recommend Villa Artemis to a friend, I already have! As others have said in their reviews, this was our first trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica, but will certainly not be our last.
