About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

One hour from Liberia International Airport. Shuttle service available.

1 mile from Tamarindo town center. Beach directly across street.

2 minutes to be on the beach. Private swimming pool and yard.

Villa Jazmin is Tamarindo's ultimate vacation rental! This three bedroom villa is exquisitely furnished. It features over 2,000 square feet inside, over 400 square feet of gardens and sleeps up to 8 guests. Three soothing fountains, tropical gardens, a private swimming pool and air-conditioning throughout the property provides the perfect environment in which to relax and unwind.

It is a joy to have your own private swimming pool! The azure blue-tiled pool is available to you night or day in perfect seclusion. Villa Jazmin provides luxury living with the excitement of Costa Rica right outside your front door. Howler monkeys can regularly be seen in the local trees and the path to the beach is directly across the street from the villa.

Simply cross the street. 1-2 minutes to be on the beach! Beautiful Playa Langosta is a secluded, white sand beach. Enjoy a romantic sunset walk or simply relax for the day. Langosta is perfect for sunbathing, surfing or an exhilarating dip in the warm Pacific Ocean. Warmer than Hawaii!

Returning to the villa, each of the three air-conditioned bedrooms has its own complete bathroom and shower. But these are no ordinary showers. Each bedroom's shower has its own tropical garden!

The downstairs master bedroom has a queen sized bed and a large bathroom with two sinks. Its shower looks out to the master bedroom garden - where lounge chairs and a soothing fountain provide a relaxing and private retreat area.

The lovely upstairs front bedroom has a queen sized bed. An additional trundle bed is nestled in a draped alcove area. There is also a wet bar - to help you enjoy cocktails in your room. Don't forget the private bathroom and garden shower.

The upstairs back bedroom overlooks the pool and tropical backyard. In this bedroom there is a choice of bed designs. You may choose to have two single beds or you may have the beds made up together with king-sized sheets to form a king bed. This bedroom also has a bathroom and garden shower.

Experience the relaxation of the great room which is complete with a 46' Samsung flatscreen LCD TV and DVD player. A sound system flows throughout the villa, with iPod cable connection and volume controls in each room including the pool and patio area. Bring your favorite CDs and movies to enjoy the comforts of home. WiFi connection is free.

The fully equipped kitchen features all the dishes/utensils you will need and the most modern American-style appliances, including a dishwasher, oven, cook top, deluxe refrigerator, ice maker, filtered water, microwave, coffee pot w/ coffee grinder, toaster oven, blender, and an outdoor propane barbecue in the patio area.

For your convenience, there is a complete laundry room with washer and dryer. Full maid service 2-3 times per week adds to the comfort and ease of your stay. All linens, bath and beach towels are provided. There are ceiling fans in all rooms. A safe for valuables serves as perfect storage for items such as computers, phones, passports, etc.

At the end of the day, why not barbecue around the pool. An outdoor granite table seats 6-7. Or try one of the many fine gourmet restaurants in Tamarindo.

Numerous delicious restaurants are within walking distance of Villa Jazmin (Lily's, Cala Luna, Sueno del Mar Bed and Breakfast and Barcelo Hotel's fine dining room). A little further walk includes the Capitan Suizo Hotel and the popular Langosta Beach Club.

If you are interested in local activities, the sunset sailing cruises and deep sea fishing excursions are remarkable! You can rent surf boards or boogie boards for the waves of Tamarindo Bay. Horseback riding along the beach is very popular as are the canopy tours through the local jungle forests. The Pinilla championship golf course is only about 20 minutes away.

With all of these wonderful amenities and activities, your stay in Costa Rica will be one you'll never forget. You will want to return again and again. We hope to be welcoming you to beautiful Villa Jazmin!

Villa Jazmin #3, Villas Cerca del Mar, in the elegant Langosta neighborhood of Tamarindo.

About Cathy Maddams

My husband and I are retired and live in San Jose, CA. We thoroughly enjoy traveling to Costa Rica, and I have been doing so for over 13 years. One thing I love about having a vacation rental in Costa Rica is helping people to optimize their holiday experience in this beautiful country. Owning Villa Jazmin affords us the opportunity to stay in Tamarindo 2-3 times a year which keeps us up to date with the area and local amenities. We have found the town of Tamarindo to be the ideal vacation spot with its gorgeous beaches, water activities, wonderful weather, friendly locals, unique shopping and restaurants with a wide selection of cuisines.

Cathy Maddams purchased this house in 2002

Why Cathy Maddams chose Playa Langosta

After realizing that this was my favorite vacation spot in the world, I decided that it was the perfect place for my second home. Sharing it with you is an added bonus.

What makes this house unique

Here are the highlights of what I love to do in Tamarindo: eat out, BBQ in, take daily walks and/or horseback rides along the beach, play golf, sit in the morning sun with my coffee, nap on the lounge chairs, walk to town to shop and have macadamia nut pancakes, pineapple pie or shrimp tacos. My favorite restaurant is the Langosta Beach Club. It is on the beach with great food and entertainment two nights a week around the pool.

It doesn't get any better than this!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Jazmin is a treasure. It is beautifully decorated and wonderfully relaxing. From the garden showers, to the private pool, to the comfortable bedrooms, and well equipped kitchen, we had everything we needed or ever wanted. The location is ideal - just a quick walk to the beach to sit with a glass of wine watching the sun go down (the sunsets are amazing!) or a leisurely walk into Tamarindo for a bit more action. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of restaurants available. And we enjoyed buying fresh fish in town and cooking at the villa. The management company was very helpful to arrange for tours and shuttles. Cathy, the owner, provided a plethora of helpful information to help navigate the area and was most welcoming. You can't go wrong with this property. Just don't book it when we want to return!

Owner's Response: I so appreciate this review! You were a wonderful guest to work with, and your comments make me want to hop on a plane and go stay in my own place! I too love the variety and quality of restaurants in Tamarindo and cooking in at the villa. There is nothing quite as beautiful as walking the Langosta beach at sunset. You are welcome, of course, any time to return. Thank you again for the outstanding review.

A review of the owner and mgmt. company, not the property

  • 5 of 5

This review is unusual in that we did not stay at Villa Jazmin due to a mix-up with our reservation and a severe plumbing problem -- it's an account of the owner and management company and how they handled a bad situation. What could have been a nightmare ended on a much happier note thanks to Cathy the owner, as well as the people at RPM Management, which maintains the property. They proved to be honest, thoughtful, and very considerate of our family's needs. Everyone went out of their way to correct the situation by relocating us to a beautiful oceanfront property for the remainder of our stay, as well as refund our rental fee. Cathy and the team at RPM have integrity and did the right thing, which is as important as the property itself, especially when you're traveling in a foreign country. You can read other reviews about Villa Jazmin to see if it fits your needs, but if you decide to rent one of Cathy's homes or a property through RPM Management, you will be covered.

Owner's Response: Hi Robert, Thank you so much for the review of your experience working with me and RPM Services to help you and your family. The fact that you could not move into the villa due to a plumbing issue was extremely unfortunate, but I was very pleased to hear that RPM Services was moving you to another lovely property instead. I would like to compliment you on your attitude as we worked together to solve the situation. RPM Services also commented on what an upstanding person you were to work with. I do hope that you can plan to return in the future. I would love to have you and your family stay in Villa Jazmin! Pura vida, Cathy

Villa Jazmin was great! Beautiful, well kept property! Quiet neighborhood. RPM management was great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Tamarindo and staying at Villa Jazmin! Definitely need a car to experience out of Tamarindo! The beach a ross from the Villa is very rocky so swimming is out. We did find a path to the Langosta beach- very beautiful and still close to the house. We drove to Playa Tamarindo- brown sand beach with great waves for swimming and surfing! Driving was fine— Tamarindo tecently paved most roads- the other roads are dirt and bumpy!! We went to La Fortuna Walterfall, Arenal Volcanoe/Lake, Nosara, Playa Conchal and all over!!! Beautiful country! The management company was awesome- very friendly staff and so helpful!!! I cannot wait to return!!

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, It was a joy to have you stay in Villa Jazmin. You accomplished so much in your time in Costa Rica, and it sounds like you had a wonderful time! I particularly love the Tamarindo Beach for boogie boarding, because the waves come rolling in for yards and yards; you get such a nice long ride. Thank you for commenting about the management company. They are doing a great job taking care of my guests and the villa overall! Please return when you can! Pura vida, Cathy

Great Family vacation rental Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (Parents and 2 teenage boys 18 and 15) stayed at Villa Jazmin for 8 days in March/April. What can I say except that we loved every minute of it. RPM (property management company) was extremely helpful and provided all the guidance, recommendations and friendly service with a smile. We were met by the RPM driver at the airport for the hour+ drive to Playa Longosta. The Villa was spotless when we arrived and exceeded our expectations. Our family spent the next week doing a wide range of activities from Zip lining, ATV tours, private snorkeling and sunset tour, estuary tour, Horseback riding, river tubing, golf, hot springs tour and many other great activities.

Our favorite was the ATV tour provided by Arenas Tours near Playa Flamingo. The tour was 2.5 hours of ATV riding through tiny towns, driving on some of the most beautiful beaches and through the forest. Highly recommended. Also highly recommended was the full day Adventure Tour at Guachipelin.

Driver picks you up at the house and takes you to Guachipelin and helps you throughout the entire day giving you tips on beating the lines and big groups that may get in front of you. We were very happy with this tour and exhausted when we got back to the Villa.

The Villa was very comfortable and especially the pool was a great way to cool off from a hot day adventuring or being on the beach.

The bedrooms were comfortable and each had an indoor/outdoor shower that was cool to experience.

Getting around was also easy. We had a great contact through RPM that would send us a taxi on moments notice if we needed to get to Tamarindo to go to dinner or the super market for groceries. Taxi's are about $5 to get to Tamarindo.

The beach at Longosta is directly across the street and is very easy to access and enjoy. We'd spend mornings taking in the am surfers and enjoying the early start of the day looking for cool seashells and swimming in the surf. It is a spectacular beach and you can take about a 20-30 min walk to Tamarindo along the beach. Just don't go at high tide.

Overall great experience. Be mindful of the ants and don't leave any food out over night or in the sink. That's not a bad reflection of the property, that's just how ants are in Costa Rica. They'll find anything to get into.

We'd definitely come back again and recommend Cathy and RPM as providing exceptional service.

Owner's Response: Hi Brett, I just read your review and found it to be highly helpful and informational. A future traveler will certainly appreciate your recommendations concerning activities that you thoroughly enjoyed. I will make note of the company that provided the ATV tour and also the full day Adventure Tour at Guachipelin. Great suggestions! I am so pleased that you found Villa Jazmin to be "beyond your expectations." What a positive comment! I totally agree that my property managers are the best! They are attentive, easily available and friendly. It is good to hear that RPM Services provided you with the name of a taxi driver who could pick you up at a moment's notice. I will recommend this to future guests. You have been wonderful to communicate with, and I do hope that you will return again and again. Pura vida, Cathy

Private, peaceful, pampered

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Villa Jazmin with our 3 older teens. It was the perfect accommodation for us. It is well kept, clean, and quiet. The property management is just a block away and always open or on call. They took very good care of us during our stay. Highlights of the home for us were: the pool, a kitchen that has everything you need, and the wi-fi. The beach is a very short walk; although down a bit of a slope—would not work with a stroller or mobility impaired guests. The reservation process was easy and had no hidden costs. We would return in a heartbeat to this lovely villa and highly recommend it. Family from Iowa City, IaA
