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.

Unforgettable Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by telling you that Olivier is an absolutely amazing host,

he knows how to make guests feel comfortable and at home. Very accommodating man with a great attention to details. If anything went wrong/was out of order, with just one SMS Olivier was able to solve our concerns within 10 minutes. Olivier went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Our only concern was poor internet connection; we believe Olivier tried his best to solve the problem, but unfortunately with very little success.

Villa Saint Barth is absolutely stunning. It`s a modern, open concept villa and represents exactly the pictures you see on the website, which we all know is not always the case. It`s a perfect hideaway from the busy Tamarindo town, yet a very short drive to everything you need. Villa is very comfortable for a romantic getaway and is absolutely perfect for family vacation.

Andrea who was our cleaning lady is a `living angel on earth` - I wish we could take her home with us :). I can't say enough good things about her: kind, giving, generous, helpful, always cheerful like a sunshine, amazing in

ALL home care duties (cleaning, washing, ironing, folding +++).

Both Olivier and Andrea set 'the bar' high for any other home owner in the Tamarindo area who rents their house as a holiday villa/apartment. Thank you to you both for spoiling us with your warm care and attention!!!
