My passion is ever changing and has become a project in the resort community. Starting as a large open Spanish hacienda, it has now evolved in to peaceful , relaxed, vacation hub.

OUR rooms are large and all have bathrooms, always in the design of new colors and decor. ever-changing to keep up with the guest's wishes

sleeps 12 persons , purchased this estate in 2004

Why chose Tamarindo

The Spanish VIlla is a exotic oasis but close to town, beaches, golf courses and large hotels. A fun place for a vacation. Close to people but far enough away for EXCLUSIVE PRIVACY relax In the heat of this tropical oasis . A large POOL makes it a great vacation for CORPORATE getaways. large ADULT SIZE POOL with swim-up bar. Let us serve you a tropical drink or smoothie all reserved for your group staying at the VIlla. IT will be a tropical blast, full of speciality drinks, fine food, music and just party time. A VACATION !

What makes this estate unique

Your friends will enjoy watching all the colorful birds that come to sit in the huge GUANACASTE tree overlooking the pool. Have fruit smoothy or enjoy a cool one while watching the radiant sunset.

listen to the splash of the dive-bombing birds , wait for the lizzards to come out to bask in the sunshine .

Sometimes a family of armadillo's can be seen sneaking into their burrow , or a monkey nearby HOWLING , Order a message right in the garden !

Great for special PARTIES and occasions Casa Rancho is as different and tropical as it gets. Why rent just a house in a subdivision all closed in like home, choose an architectural zero inspired rancho by the sea...........for your Tropi.

I took my family of 4 and another family of 6 over the summer for 2 weeks and it was the best beach vacation I've ever had. I've been to Hawaii, Mexico, Aruba, and most places in the Continental US but this surpassed them all. The house was tremendous! We had 6 children ranging from 4-13 and they loved it. It was especially nice because there was so much space that we weren't on top of each other. The pool was wonderful and we played games out at the Cabana each night. Getting Dicard to cook for us was the best advice that Janice gave us. He is a wonderful host and chef and was invaluable to helping us relax and enjoy our vacation. The access to the 3 beaches on property and the other 2 pools was such a blessing for our large group. I would recommend this to any large group vacationing in Costa Rica.

My November stay at Casa Rancho was fabulous. Just a short distance to the beach, so much privacy and pristine beauty. A magnificent place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Frequent afternoon dips in the beautiful pool kept us cool in style. The food was simple, delicious and well presented. A great place to get away from the usual tourist crowds. Would highly recommend Casa Rancho.
