About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Step through the gates of Casa Ix Chel and you'll find yourself in a tropical garden containing many species of tropical flowers and fruit trees including coconuts, bananas, papayas and lemons. Walk up the path to the main home and you will find the swimming pool, which has a shallow section designed for submerged lounging and the outdoor eating area surrounded by palms and bougainvillea. There's plenty of area to lounge in one of the teak chaise lounges, chairs or the teak dining table and chairs. The home and gardens sit on a quarter acre lot.

The home stands three stories tall. The architect used many curved lines and lots of exposed wood so there is definitely a nautical feel. Enter through the front door and you'll find the first living room, a great spot to read and relax. There is a small bar that connects with the large kitchen. The dining area has a picture window overlooking the pool and gardens. The kitchen is newly renovated with a six burner gas stove, range hood, dishwasher, two basin sink, and a large refrigerator, all stainless steel.

You'll find the master bedroom on the first floor. It has a king size bed imported from Java. The master bath has a double vanity and a shower with hand molded tub. There is also a powder room on the first floor for guests and people coming in from the pool area.

Make your way to the second floor and you'll find the second living area. There is a television sitting area and a large wrap around porch overlooking the pool and gardens. There are two bedrooms on this floor, one with a king size bed and one with a queen size bed, both with private bathrooms.

The third floor is home to the crow's nest. Here you'll find two bunk beds, each with a double bed and a single bed. There is also a nice bathroom with shower.

In addition to the main house there are two free standing studios (cabinas). Each has a queen bed, kitchenette, stove, frig, private bath and enormous vaulted ceilings. The studios are located at the front of the property but are hidden from the main house by lush foliage for extra privacy. Perfect for couples, in-laws or teens.

Additional features include cable TV, DVD, wireless internet, all linens, and an outdoor shower and half bathroom. There is a washer/dryer located behind the house which is available for guests use.

'Downtown' Tamarindo is a short 2 blocks and the beach is 3 blocks from our home. Coastal Property Management has a full concierge desk and also is available 24/7 in the event anything comes up.

Manager info

Coastal Property Management

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Coastal Property Management has managed Casa Ix Chel since the owners purchased it and renovated it for their family getaways to Costa Rica. The company is happy to play host and concierge to numerous groups that make memories at Casa Ix Chel annually.

Why Tamarindo, Costa Rica:
The property offers groups lots of space. The two cabinas are completely independent from the main house with kitchenettes and full baths. We love having dinner outside by the pool after firing up the barbecue. Also, we feel blessed to be able to watch Howler Monkeys passing through the trees both in front of and behind the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This private gated compound is perfect for families & friends who want to vacation together but don't want to give up their privacy. In addition to the spacious main house that sleeps 10-12 people, the two free standing detached studios offer everything for in-laws, couples or teens need (kitchenette, breakfast table, private bath, queen bed, sitting area, TV) so they can spend as much or as little time as they prefer on their own but still be only steps away from the main house and the pool.
