About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 and half bathrooms, sleeps 10 people

Nothing is more precious than friends & family gathering to create memory of a lifetime. Designed with such in mind, Palm House is located in a secluded, gated, and private neighborhood, yet it is only 10 minutes away from area beaches & other attractions that Tamarindo has to offer.

The house has an open & inviting atmosphere. You will find yourself drawn to the thatched roof Rancho where you will spend most of your time relaxing by the pool and admiring the spectacular view of the green valley, rolling hills, ocean and sunset in the horizon.

It is a 2-level house. Each bedroom is a suite with its own bathroom. One master suite is on the second floor with a king size bed. A double glass doors opens up to a balcony offering the view. A guest bedroom next door has 2 twin beds with trundles (sleep 4). It also has its own private balcony.

Another master suite is located on the main floor with king size bed and 2 trundles. It features an outdoor private shower.

The Gourmet kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances such as cooktop, oven, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. The kitchen opens up to the family room providing enough space for family members to gather during meal preparation. Separated by bifold glass door from the kitchen and family room is the Rancho which provides outdoor formal dining and sitting area.

Our uniquely designed swimming pool has shallow beach area, perfect for sun bathing and unwinding during lazy days.

Enjoying the nature & the outdoors is what Costa Rica is all about. You’ll find yourself waking up to the sound of howler monkeys and birds in the morning. You have many sandy beaches, shops, and restaurants to visit and sample. Guanacaste offers attractions from hiking, surfing, sports fishing, kayaking, horseback riding, canopy tour, national parks, volcanoes to countless many others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely home, comfortable, impeccably clean, magnificent views. A little off the beaten track - 20 minutes to the town of Tamarindo - and you absolutely need a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get there.

Gorgeous home! Hate to leave!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Palm House. This place is right out of a magazine and was always such a joy to come back to each evening. We lived out on the patio practically. The hammock, the pool table, the daybed, the incredible pool - it was all perfection.

Highly recommend!

Fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 enjoyed our stay at the Palm House over Christmas. The home was spacious and we loved the indoor-outdoor living area which expanded the dining and visiting area. We also enjoyed having Marta cook our dinners for us. It was wonderful to spend the day out doing adventures and then return home to a delicious dinner about 6:30pm each evening.

A wonderful house - we loved to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderfully situated and the views have been breathtaking. The pool was great for the kids and adults alike and we made the most of the wonderful outside area which really can only be described as the living room. The kitchen is well equipped and generally the house provides all we needed. We enjoyed wonderful days there and certainly would have loved to stay longer.

The owners advice of needing a 4-wheel drive should be taken seriously as there is a rather steep approach to the property which caused us amusement every time. The owners are great and easily reached whenever we needed anything. The pictures don't fully relay just how wonderful the view are. It's way better than what it seems.

Tamarindo is a wonderful little beach place and has all one needs from supermarkets to restaurants at the beach.

Stunning Hillside Escape

  • 5 of 5

This home is perched high in the hills overlooking a lush green valley. Howler monkeys are easily heard nearby, especially in the early morning and evenings - very cool! The home is immaculate and tastefully decorated. The very private setting was enjoyed by our family of 4. Communication with the owner was great and there is daily maid service. The outside veranda was wonderful with plenty of area to lounge including a hammock and pool table. I enjoyed the pool the most. In the early hours, you will see thr mist/low lying clouds pass through the valley. Also, watching storms pass through provides quite a lightning show. In short, this was exactly what I was looking for, away from the city (only 10 minutes) but allows you to feel Costa.

Note: you must have a 4-wheel drive to climb the hill and the kids loved it each time.

Thank you for sharing you home!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are true, but certainly do not do this fabulous place justice. There was a steady 15 mph breeze almost the entire time we were there which helped to keep things cool during the day. We had a wonderful and relaxing time at the house. It was the perfect place to come back to after making our way around the region for fun and adventure. This place was truly home during our stay.

The property is located in the hill sides of virgin forest overlooking an undeveloped valley just minutes from the Pacific Ocean. Its a very natural setting with little neighboring constructions where sunsets are simply breathtaking and tranquility abounds.

Palm House is only 10 minutes from Tamarindo - Costa Rica's surfing capital with restaurants, shops, pharmacies and overall beach town amenities. The popular Flamingo and Conchal beaches are only 20 minutes North, while great surfing spots like Avellanas and Playa Negra are only 15 minutes South. The Playa Grande National Park renowned for the leather back turtles is just across the estuary of Tamarindo.

The Pinilla development is located 7 miles down valley and hostess luxury hotels, but also one of the top golf courses in Costa Rica. The Flamingo Marina holds world records in Blue Marlin and Sail fish; while the Catalina Islands are famous for scuba diving with Tiger sharks.

Adventure is minutes away from our house!
