About the property

This is a private residence unique location just a minute from town and beaches.

If you are looking for privacy, panoramic ocean views, yet still want to be close to restaurants, shops, and all the amenities Tamarindo has to offer, then you have found your dream vacation home.

It feels magical when you arrive here. Like an island in the trees, located on a private hilltop of paradise and only a two minute drive to the center of town. The private road leading up to the house is lined with mature Guanacaste trees and lush native flora.

The residence is newly constructed and tastefully decorated. The floor plan features three bedrooms/bathroom suites and powder room. The Tamarindo suite has a calming mountain view with a gorgeous sunrise experience. The Langosta suite overlooks the ocean which boasts a large terrace where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets stretching from Playa Grande to Playa Avellanas. The third bedroom on the first floor also includes a private bath and beautiful French doors that open up to the patio and the tropical Zen garden.

The open air design of the main floor showcases a gourmet full service kitchen furnished with high-end appliances, granite counter tops, and custom wood cabinetry. The living area opens onto the spacious back terrace that includes an outdoor barbeque kitchen/dining area and infinity pool. Indulge in the sense of swimming in the forest canopy while swimming in the pool or relax on the terrace and enjoy some of the best views Tamarindo has to offer. A tiled roof covers a additional patio that enjoys a peaceful experience surrounded by lush green foliage where monkeys and birds visit.

The residence can provide full concierge service including tour reservations, fishing charters, rental car reservations, in home chef services, and real estate services.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Truly an outstanding place. Beautifully designed, beautifully maintained, and the views are breathtaking. I'm so glad we went this route rather than a traditional hotel. The owners were courteous, responsive and very helpful. The place was thoroughly cleaned with fresh linens left out for us upon arrival. This was exactly the type of place I hope to find when I search for properties on this site. I would stay there again without hesitation.

Great Family Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a great time at the Sher's home in Tamarindo. The house is modern, clean, and very convenient. It provided ample space for our family to spread out, but still be together! The house is conveniently located near the town and beaches of Tamarindo - but also a short drive to other beaches and excursions. We appreciated all of the help from Richard, including providing us with some groceries for our first morning, taking us to the grocery store, giving us restaurant recommendations, and personally connecting us to the best excursions around! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this rental to any family looking for a relaxing vacation that can be filled with as much adventure as you desire!!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this home for 7 days. There were 4 adults and two children and the house provided ample room. The views are spectacular. We spend every evening watching the most incredible sunsets over the ocean. The pool was a godsend to cool off in the afternoons.

The house does not have many extras (bring your own shampoo and soap...) but there is enough to cook with in the kitchen and the grill was helpful. Richard's restaurant recommendations were excellent.

Thanks for the wonderful stay.

Amazing Hilltop

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Costa Rica for the first time with 3 other friends over Thanksgiving this year. During the entire process of renting this home Richard and Irina were extremely helpful. The home was situated on a beautiful hilltop just a short distance from Tamarindo. We loved the location of the home with AMAZING views of the beach, sunsets and surrounding forest. Richard was always available to answer questions, provide great recommendations and made our stay extremely comfortable.

The home was well taken care of and the pool was exceptional. I would recommend this home to any of my friends traveling to Tamarindo.

Thanks again Richard for being a great host and making our 1st stay in Tamarindo one we will always remember!!!!!

My kids want to move here!

  • 5 of 5

My two young sons and I had a fantastic week in this house. Richard was super helpful and basically was a concierge half our stay - showing us the lesser known gems to visit in the area. This home is isolated enough that it felt like a nice private hideaway but was relatively close to beaches, restaurants, etc. We would definitely go back. Gracias Richard!

Hilltop Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with a breathtaking view. The pool area was spectacular for cooling off and relaxing during the hot days and enjoying the sunset each night. The house had all of the amenities we needed and was cleaned and tidied up each day by a very friendly housekeeper. Richard was very personable and was always eager to provide tips and suggestions. Anytime we needed help with anything, he was available at a moment's notice. Thank you for helping make our experience in Costa Rica a memorable one!

Beautiful views and great service

  • 5 of 5

From the day we found this house and started asking questions, through the last day of our trip, we had a wonderful experience with not only the property, but the owners as well. First, the owners are very helpful, answering any questions you have prior to arrival. While there, they were also readily available to provide recommendations on activities, restaurants, best local beaches, private chefs and even helped book some of our excursions. It was like having our own personal concierge. The property speaks for itself. It is atop a beautiful hill that overlooks Tamarindo and the Pacific. The pool area may have the best sunset view in all of Costa Rica. We had four adults and two children ages 9 and 10 and the house was perfect for all parties. I would highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to Tamarindo. Thanks again to the owners for all your help, you made our trip that much better!
