Guestbook comments from the owner


DeSoto, Texas

Relaxing in paradise

Left on Sep 14, 2016 for a stay in Sep 2016

Although our stay was during the rainy season, we didn't let the rain keep us inside. We enjoyed morning walks on the beach, relaxing time in the pool, a wonderful spa day as well as dinner out. A few days we didn't see the sunset for the clouds but was able to enjoy a few. Each day was a mixture of sunshine and showers so don't hesitate to visit during the rainy season. Traveling into Tamarindo by taxi was easy and reasonable since we opted not to rent a car. The home is just as described with a fully appointed kitchen that allowed us to make breakfast each morning after our beach walk. The management staff was helpful and responded quickly to get rid of a wasp in one of the bedrooms. They repaired the downstairs 1/2 bath within an hour after our call. An enjoyable time that allowed us to renew and rejuvenate!

We were lucky to stay here for a month, it was just perfect for us. The house itself had everything you needed, including boogie boards!

The house is set in a lovely beautiful courtyard with amazing Gardner’s and security. We loved having our own individual pool . Which was used a lot! Loved being so close to Langosta beach, the long walks there were fantastic. RPM a team of managers especially Lola were great, quick to respond if any issues arose. We will definitely be back.

Perfect peaceful oasis

  • 5 of 5

Description of the property and the pictures were very accurate. The property was super clean and well-maintained. The extra security made your stay comfortable in carefree. This was a perfect location where one can enjoy the bustle of Tamarindo and escape to the quietness Playa Langosta. We enjoyed surf camp during the day in Tamarindo and downtime in the villa. Highly recommend renting bikes from Walters . The accommodations were perfect for our kids and for us. I would highly recommend this place.

Fabulous home that was perfect for our family of 6 with all teenagers! It had everything we needed including chairs to lounge at the beach!

The pool is a great bonus and the villas were very safe feeling!

The property was clean and well maintained and the customer service was great! We loved the quietness of the area with the busyness of Tamarindo so close. You defintely want a vehicle to go into Tamarindo for ease.

We would definitely recommend it to our friends/family and we would stay there again if we head back to the area!

Awesome villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the villa for 8 days and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The villa was well equipped...the kitchen area had all of the required pots/pans/dishes/utensils etc... The layout allowed us to cook while the kids played in the pool or watched tv. There is also a bbq near the pool. There were a few games and books at the villa as well... we really enjoyed our nightly game of scrabble.

All the bedrooms were very spacious and the beds were comfortable. Each bedroom had its own bathroom&shower which was especially convenient. As well, all the rooms were separately air conditioned.

The pool was awesome, with younger kids (10&7 years old) we spent a few down days at the villa as the excursions are a bit tiring...the kids played in the pool the whole day!

The beach is a short walk away...we walked there and relaxed under the trees which offer great shade from the sun. There are plenty of seashells and a gentle tide for the kids to play. I was able to rent a surf board and go surfing right there.

The town and restaurants are close... a lot of people would walk or rent local transportation (taxi/golf carts/scooters etc). We had a rental car making it extremely easy to go to and from Tamarindo for restaurants or groceries. We also drove up the coast about 40 minutes to some very beautiful beaches (Playa conchal & flamingo)

My final comments are for Scott (the owner)...he is a very great guy to deal with! He responded to all of our questions and concerns promptly and was extremely accomodating. We have had bad vacation rental experiences in the past ...but he is very honest and helpful. As well, RPM (the vacation management company) was very professional and helpful both prior to and during our stay.

Perfect home for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 6 adults, and this house was absolutely perfect. The 3 bedrooms with attached baths provided the privacy we were looking for, while the living area and pool offered wonderful gathering areas. The management company was very responsive when we had a small appliance malfunction, and they also assisted us in booking ziplining, ATV and horseback riding tours. The house includes a landline telephone, so you can make local calls, and there are also beach chairs and umbrellas, a necessity if you spend an afternoon at the beach in CR! The beach is a short walk across the street, however, this beach is not good for swimming as the surf is strong and the beach is rocky. The swimming area of Playa Langosta is about 300 yards walk from the beach access area. Downtown Tamarindo is in walking distance (approx 1 mile), but I would't want to do it carrying a surfboard or in the heat of the day. We rented a car so it was no problem, but if you don't want to rent a car there are golf cart rentals available in the area.

The kitchen of this house was well equipped, and there are restaurants (pizza and tapas) right nearby. There are plenty of beach/pool towels, cable TV, and the AC worked fine. Even the staff, housekeeper, gardeners and security guards were super friendly. Tamarindo was a super fun town offering something for everyone. Rent this house! You won't regret it.

Playa Langosta
Car: recommended

Located about 1 mile from the town of Playa Tamarindo , Playa Langosta is a quieter eco-friendly area of Guanacaste, but within reach of the activities, restaurants and shops of Tamarindo. Around the corner from Courtyard Villas, there is a super market, pharmacy and Internet cafe. A Shuttle from the airport in Liberia originates next door to the Internet cafe. Down the street is the Hotel Barcelo, with its casino and restaurant. Walk a few blocks to see 'Millionaire's way', an architecturally unique area nearby.

Other Activities: Gambling
