Property description

The Setting
La Buena Vida #4. (Green Villa) is a spacious 2 storey home in a private gated condo community. With only 9 units in total, this exclusive enclave is located just steps from the best restaurants, shopping and beaching in Tamarindo. For quiet nights, our home is set away from the street at the back of the courtyard. Relax in the sun or the greenery of our shaded tropical canopy after a day at the beach. With extensive natural light, this home offers vistas of the palm-lined courtyard, pool and green zone from most windows and the terrace. Monkeys and exotic birds are spotted regularly in the green zones around our Tamarindo home

Things to Do
Tamarindo is a popular beach town sought after for its surf, international dining, nightlife, and adventure. But, it is equally perfect for couples and families to unplug and relax. You can enjoy the experience at your own pace. Peace, quiet, nature and serenity are truly at our doorstep. As the dropping-in point for dozens of adventure tours, spas days and eco experiences, all the amenities are close by. Tamarindo is alive with pedestrians day and night so you can walk everywhere and feel at ease. For quick trips to secluded beaches, a car or ATV can be hired a few doors away. Kayaks and other toys are readily available near the beach. Excursions to Arenal Volcano, Monte Verde and other adventures can easily be booked through our property manager or at local kiosks. Airport transport can also be arranged.

The warm waters of Playa Tamarindo are a five minute walk from La Buena Vida - An eclectic stroll past cafes, restaurants and shops along the way. Sunset is a special time for everyone here in Tamarindo. You will not want to miss the nightly pilgrimage to the pacific at dusk. Meet friends or make new ones along the way to the sand.

Amenities
The Main floor is a gathering area with an open concept kitchen, dining and living space including ample seating for dining or to stretch out in front of the flat screen TV. Many guests will choose to sample some of Costa Rica’s best restaurants. But, for cooks, our kitchen is equipped with every modern amenity including gleaming granite counters, a huge eating bar, all new stainless appliances and imported quartz sink. Groceries are available at the end of our street- 2 other super market choices are also close by .

Our home sleeps 4-6 people. We have two large bedrooms and 2 full washrooms upstairs along with a futon and powder room on the main floor. Laundry is located in our atrium off the kitchen.

In Summary
This unit was newly purchased and fully renovated in summer of 2014, including topline paint, cabinet refinishing, all new linens, beach towels, updated furnishings, new shower heads and fixtures throughout. The Gold Coast has some of Costa Rica’s most beautiful beaches and we carefully chose Buena Vida so our family, friends and guests could realize the dream of having a special place to call home in this warm and friendly land. Tamarindo is a small cosmopolitan place – But very laid back and exotic at the same time. In a few blocks you can experience everything from rustic cottages to sophisticated mansions and boutiques. Beach town vibe, surf and boogie boarding, etc… Every activity is available to our family and guests.

Our Wish
We invite you to experience the good life and enjoy our favorite home. As our dear guests, don’t hesitate to call us if we can help with ideas and suggestions to make your holiday more enjoyable. Pura Vida!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Living in Canada’s northernmost big city we carry on busy fulfilling lives with “important” jobs and an active family of five. For sure minus 40 degree winters are an incredible motivation for settling on Buenavidaville in Tamarindo. But the whole story is more about realizing our dreams, finding a fun & safe nest for our family & friends and keeping our values intact.

Why the Owner Chose Tamarindo, Costa Rica:
The origins go back many years when we fell in love with Costa Rica while travelling there on a project for business. The natural surroundings and kindness of the people were incredible and the values of a well educated, healthy and happy population make Costa Rica unlike any other place in Latin America. We used to come home from each trip vowing to go back one day to escape from the winter and have a home in Costa Rica”. This area and property met all our needs for fulfilling the dream.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We turned over stones in many places before we circled back to Tamarindo. It’s not perfect like Disney, but the experience of arriving one evening and then waking up in this beautiful place is the meaning of Pura Vida for us. La Buena Vida is our private oasis nuzzled near the beach. When the first morning comes we are in a completely different space and our worries melt away. We feel like kids again and we never get tired! Our teens have taken up surfing and love the vibe here. In the end, we even want to go back in summer…Beaching, outings and endless adventures…it’s just too hard to resist.
