Where do I even begin? Olivier has a beautiful home on his hands and Andrea does an awesome job in keeping it in pristine condition. The environment of the home was surreal! Waking up in the beauty of the rainforest added a special touch to my birthday trip! We had a yoga instructor and chef visit us, the home was easy to find and located VERY close to the beaches and shops/restaurants/bars! I will definitely stay here again when and if the opportunity presented itself! Thank you so much Olivier! You are amazing!!

A vacation home that dreams are made of!

  • 5 of 5

Believe every review you read about this home! Our family (6 adults) had an amazing week here. The main floor rooms are fairly equal in size. The upstairs bedroom is bigger and has a private balcony and a larger bathroom.

The home is VERY secure and private. The grounds are pristine, there's a mountain view from the backyard that offers amazing sunsets. The pool is fantastic! I'm 5'3 and walked on tip toes the entire length, so non-swimmers should be ok (except children).

Andrea... Wow. I can't say enough wonderful things about her. Every day we returned home to fresh towels and sheets, sparkling floors and very organized personal effects. She is meticulous and sweet as pie.

The drive to Tamarindo is about 10-15 min. We shopped at Auto Mercado and once at Super Mercado, which is a local store (not catering to tourists) but has many familiar items. Prices at Super Mercado were better.

Olivier is a wonderful, cheerful property manager. He won't chastise you for triggering the house alarm every day like we did. He's fantastic with communication and quick to help solve any issue (we had none, but he was definitely available if we had). He welcomed us like family!

You absolutely will not regret booking this home. Oh, if you sit at the pool at sunrise, the howler monkey's will serenade you.

I can't wait to return.

Stunning, Wonderful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our daughter and family (2 children age 2 and 4) and spent a week in this lovely home. We felt so welcomed when we arrived. Olivier showed us around , explaining the ins and outs of the house. The kitchen was stocked with everything that we needed and the house was perfect. Comfortable beds, cool AC, great bathrooms! We met Andrea, the housecleaner, who is lovely and a gem. She slips in quietly everyday and made the house look like we had just arrived! This was so appreciated. The pool was heaven. The area by the stairs was perfect for our little ones and we were able to swim laps in the longer area. It was a welcomed treat after a day of exploring beaches and towns. We had many dinners outside as the sun was setting and often had a dip in the pool before bed. We all highly recommend this house. Olivier is quick to respond to any questions and was very helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to return to this house when we come back to Costa Rica. Thank you, Olivier and Andrea!! From, Martha, Chuck, Sarah, Alexander, Xavier and Tavio...

Exceptional Service and Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wow, where do I even start? This property is beautiful and Olivier was a pleasure to work with. We emailed many times before actually arriving and he was nothing but accommodating. He sent several links for different tours around the area, one for a private chef (OUTSTANDING) and was even able to go grocery shopping for us before we arrived so we had food in the house. There was an insect nest by the pool and Olivier had it taken care of by the next morning. He was there to greet us even though we had almost a 2 hour delay and didn't arrive until about 11pm. The driveway is steep so I definitely recommend a 4WD vehicle. The town of Tamarindo is a short 10 minute drive away. Beautiful beach, great surf, a local brewery and cute shops. The grocery store is before Tamarindo and has a lot of great choices.

The house is just as beautiful as the pictures. There are pool rafts, drink holders and towels provided. The A/C works great, which was a very important feature for us since it was so warm during this time. Everything is just so clean and modern. The patio outside is such a plus and perfect for dining. We also had a local yoga teacher come one morning and it was the perfect spot once we moved the table and chairs. There are iguanas and birds all around which made for beautiful sights and sounds all day.

Andrea, our housekeeper, was a dream. She washed clothes and cleaned the house daily for us. She is so friendly and such a hard worker.

We are already planning our next trip back and will definitely rent this house again. Thank you for making my 40th birthday trip so very special :)

Fantastic Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at many VRBO properties in the US and Caribbean and this one is top notch. Olivier and Andrea were great to interact with and very helpful with local recommendations for beaches, restaurants, etc. We always felt if we needed something he was minutes away but at the same time we had the place to ourselves and the property was very clean, safe, and private. The villa's open air feel was perfect for this hilltop location and the views go on forever. We especially enjoyed the outdoor dining area and of course the pool. The location was very close to the Tamarindo area, but far enough away from the busy packed beach town, just what we were looking for. We were fortunate enough to be in town for the local festival and bullriding event at Villareal a must see if it's going on when you are there. When we come back to the area this is where we'll be! Thanks again Olivier for sharing your wonderful home with us.

The most indulgent stay of my life.

  • 5 of 5

Between the designer home, the spectacular pool, the immaculate yard and the quiet attentiveness of the housekeeper (who catered daily to our every need), I have never before experienced anything like it.

My husband and three young children loved every minute of pool time, every breeze through the many open windows and every glimpse of the picturesque Costa Rican countryside that this place afforded.

It was an easy 10 minute drive to the bustling little beach town of Tamarindo which had every restaurant option and choice of excursion or adventure we could ask for.

We can't wait to come back next year.
