A true dream house for your friends and family. Our 4 level house will provide you with expansive ocean views, soothing sounds from our waterfall pool, sweeping jungle and ocean views with plentiful wildlife. Truly, the perfect tropical vacation rental. Located at end of quiet cul-de-sac area. Unlike other Tamarindo hillside homes, we are located on a paved road within short walk to town & the beach.
We have built this house to be a delight to your senses. When you walk in the front door, your eyes will be distracted by the jungle right in front of you. In the background, the ocean comes into focus as this is the perfect hillside view to enjoy Tamarindo sunsets. The top floor is sitting above the tree line and enjoys perfect unobstructed views of the sunset of Playa Tamarindo and Playa Langosta. Master suite offers over 1000 sq ft of space with huge bathroom & shower, king bed with expansive ocean views, an indoor sunset lounge area, and a custom teak deck for morning coffee or sunset views. Our 3 ensuite poolside bedrooms will be perfect for couples. Below the pool, we offer 3 additional bedrooms underneath our private waterfall. Your guests and friends will have plenty of room and privacy.
We are located a short 2 blocks from town on paved road. 10 minute walk to town, 13 minute walk to the beach down a moderate hill. Unlike other Tamarindo houses on hillside, our road is the only road fully paved. This is very important as you can easily walk from our home into town on a paved road.
Feel free to rent a car, golf cart or walk around town. Taxi's are cheap, so you can walk to town and taxi back if you prefer.

Why Skip Davis chose Tamarindo
The Waterfall House is the perfect mix of relaxation and right by all of Tamarindo's restaurants and shops. Amazing views of the ocean and tree tops provide a great Pura Vida experience. :-)

The house is spacious and beautiful. The pool was great, the views were great, and the kitchen/dining/living area was beautiful and very spacious - 15 people could hang out comfortably in the combined area, especially if you slide the glass doors to the patio. The house was in great condition and the bathrooms were big with new fixtures. There is no staff in the house, but John and Ronnie(?) were accessible by phone if you needed anything. I thought the house was a good value relative to others we looked at.
There are just a couple of issues that people need to be aware of when booking. The first is that there is a huge disparity in the bed rooms. The master suite is INCREDIBLE, taking up the entire top floor. The three bedrooms on the pool level are all large and very nice, each with bathrooms en suite. The bottom three bedrooms, on the lowest level, are small, basic, down a flight of outside stairs, and share one bathroom. It worked out fine with our group - we just agreed that the people who got those rooms would pay significantly less than the others. But I could see it being an issue with some groups.
Second, it is a little far from town, so you probably need a car or golf cart (or to use cabs, which are very reasonable once you find one). The walk to town/beach isn't bad (10-15 minutes) but the return trip, up a big hill, is pretty tough during the daytime heat, and pretty dark at night.
Notwithstanding those issues, I would definitely stay there again if we go back to Tamarindo. The house overall is well worth it.
Thank you for the feedback.
One additional comment I would add for staying in hillside homes, the trade-off for stunningly beautiful views and privacy is proximity to restaurants and the beaches. Instead of a 2-3 minute walk, it will be a 10-15 minute walk. This applies to all houses on the hillside. And we are actually located at a pretty low elevation compared to other homes.
Again, thank you for you review and we hope to host you again in the future.
