About the Property
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
The charms of Costa Rica, the captivating natural beauty, the beguiling black sand beaches, and the bewitching sunsets over the Pacific Ocean are all yours to savor and enjoy. However you define it a vacation at Villa Encantada will create lasting memories you, your family and friends won’t soon forget.
At over 2100 square feet Villa Encantada's Moorish design provides you with the perfect combination of space and luxury. Immaculately appointed interior and lush exterior tropical gardens enhance the beauty of the property and bring Costa Rica's flora and fauna right to you. In addition cast stone architectural elements and fountains, native handcrafted hardwood details and Moroccan inspired tiles create the atmosphere for a truly enchanting vacation!
The ideal location for that much needed getaway:
The Villa is perfectly situated across the street from the quiet, secluded Playa Langosta, which invites you to walk for miles on unspoiled beaches, find a driftwood log in the shade along the tree-lined shore to sit and admire the soaring Pelicans or marvel at the spectacular sunsets.
The Villa is conveniently located a short distance to a full service grocery store, many outstanding restaurants ranging from fine dining to family-friendly, world-class surfing and water activities, and a whole lot more.
So much to do, so little time!
The town of Tamarindo, a short walk from the Villa, features numerous restaurants, shops, clubs, a casino and just about everything you could want in a vacation destination. Guests of Villa Encantada have exclusive membership to the Langosta Beach Club and all the facilities available including a full gym, yoga studio, private cabanas and full service restaurant. Additionally, let the concierge at the Langosta Beach Club create the perfect outing for you and your guests: Enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving? Up for a good round of golf? Why not a thrilling ziplining adventure through one of the local rainforest canopies? Or just sit back and relax on a sunset champagne cruise. The options are virtually endless.
Your peace of mind matters:
Tamarindo also offers readily available ambulance, medical and dental services and pharmacy in case any unexpected emergency arises. There is a security guard on site at the Villa and a secure intercom system to monitor guests to the property.
Your own private pool - who could ask for more?
Surrounded by the property's 10 foot high walls and lush tropical gardens, the Villa's oversized pool (the largest in the Villas Cerca del Mar development) features glass tiling inspired by the Pacific, an ornate wall mounted fountain and shaded deck with plenty of seating for both lounging and al fresco dining. The best feature is that the pool is yours exclusively - swim at your own discretion.
Our newly installed fountain patio is the perfect place to stretch, do yoga, meditate or simply read a book.
Keep it clean.
Each of our 3 guest rooms comes with its own private bathroom. The master bathroom on the first floor features a walk in shower and double vanity, and we recently completed a renovation to create a second master bathroom on the second floor. All a spacious, well lit and airy.
When the day is done...
A good night's sleep isn't far away. Turn off the air conditioning, open the screened windows and let the tropical breezes and ocean surf lull you to sleep. Luxurious bed linens, fluffy pillows and blankets create the perfect ambiance for a wonderful rest. Awake refreshed and rejuvenated - ready for another day in paradise. Each bedroom comes with its own en suite bathroom including an open-air shower and adjacent tropical garden.
Master Bedroom #1 (first floor) features a queen size four poster bed crafted of the finest locally sourced hardwoods and comfortable euro-pillow top mattress. Floor to ceiling glass panels separate the bedroom from a completely private rear terrace surrounded by lush gardens, bubbling fountain and comfortable lounge chairs.
Master Bedroom #2 (second floor, front) looks out over the Villa's pool and offers guests a queen size bed featuring a euro pillow top mattress and supremely comfortable bedding. Guests can enjoy the handcrafted stone balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. In the morning it's a great place to sit and enjoy a cup of Costa Rica's finest coffee or in the afternoon the best spot to take in the spectacular sunsets over the Pacific. The newly created Master Bathroom features an oversized shower with an open air skylight and a double vanity crafted locally.
Guest bedroom #1 (second floor, rear) offers the convenience of twin beds (which can be pushed together) and the same premium bedding and linens as the other guest rooms. An oversized picture window looks through the Villa's wonderful trees through to the hillsides beyond.
Living and dining - perfect together!
Upon first entering Enchanted Villa guests are welcomed into the open plan living/dining/kitchen area. Floor to ceiling windows surround the space on either side, allowing for plenty of air and light into the space. This floor plan is ideal for enabling everyone to join in great conversation.
In the living room comfortable upholstered seating, complements all the comforts of home including a flat screen plasma television and a Sonus Wifi speaker system to enjoy your favorite music. Adjacent to the living room the dining area features a round teak dining table handcrafted from local hardwoods. The built in table leaf enables six guests to sit comfortably around the table.
The heart of the house...
Enchanted Villa offers a modern gourmet kitchen fully equipped with top of the line stainless steel appliances. A double filtered water dispenser on the refrigerator door ensures safe drinking water for all guests. The teak island, with butcher block top, is a great spot for friends and family to gather to prepare a meal together.
The inside out.
Just off the kitchen/living/dining area is the outdoor grill area, featuring a chef's gas grill and seating for 4, all surrounded by lush flowers and plants. Adjacent to the grill area is a wet bar so you're never too far from a cold drink.
Conveniently located a little ways down the hall guests will find the half-bath. Across from the half bath guests can enjoy our newly installed fountain patio, the perfect place to stretch, do yoga, meditate or simply take in a good book.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: After living 22 years in New York City we needed a change and moved two hours north to Hudson in upstate New York. in 2009 we opened The Croff House, a 5-room luxury bed and breakfast, and we quickly became the top rated property in town and for three years after the top rated property in New York as well. We're very proud of our accomplishment with The Croff House and hope to provide and equally superior experience to our guests at Enchanted Villa.
Why the Owner Chose Playa Langosta, Costa Rica:
Having visited a few areas in Costa Rica both on the Caribbean and Pacific coasts we were amazed each time at the friendliness and welcoming nature of the Tico's (what the locals are called). Tamarindo has a great vibe - shops, restaurants, nightlife and great beaches, but it still holds on to it's Costa Rican charm: no Starbucks, Gaps or McDonalds here! Playa Langosta is just a short walk from the Villa. The calm and tranquility of the area was immediately evident; being able to hear the ocean from the Villa was an added bonus. Becoming members of the stunning Langosta Beach Club we thought our guests would love too. Everything is brand new, it's an awesome facility, and the staff is fantastic. With a fully equipped gym, yoga studio, private beach, full restaurant/bar and more what's not to love? Best of all? Costa Rica is so EASY to get to and it's totally affordable. The Liberia International Airport was only opened in 2012 and most carriers fly direct from their major hubs. Great weather. Friendly people. Easy to get to. Fantastic food. Easy on the wallet. Lots to do. It was an easy decision.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
An exclusive benefit to renting our Villa Encantada is the complimentary membership for all guests to the Langosta Beach Club, which provides a full service restaurant, bar, infinity pool, gym and fitness classes. In addition guests can learn to surf and waveboard right from the beach in front of the Beach Club.
