"Thank you so much Cathy for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. It was so comfortable for the 6 of us and we all loved hanging out in the pool each day. We would recommend this to anyone who wants a villa with plenty of space, privacy, nice air conditioning, and located close to the beach. Also if you enjoy cooking your own meals, this villa is perfect with a nicely stocked kitchen and also has an outdoor grill. The cleaning staff were so nice kept the villa and the pool so nice. The wifi was actually than our own wifi back home! We would hang out primarily at playa Langosta where there was great body surfing waves and good waves to learn to surf on. We walked into Tamarindo usually twice a day to hang out at the beach there, shop, dine, and also to meet up for the sunset sailing trip. We enjoyed the walk as that is when we would see monkeys up close as well as large lizards and beautiful foliage. We used Native's Way and went on their 80 ft schooner for a 5 hour catered trip with a stop for some awesome snorkeling. We also went on their 12 hour trip to Rincon del la Vieja to zipline, tube, ride horses, and enjoy the hot springs. What an amazing day. In Tamarindo, we highly recommend Nordico coffee shop for meals any time of day (breakfast, lunch or even a light dinner) - they have amazing healthy fresh food and smoothies and are located right at the intersection of the main road coming in from Langosta and the main road in Tamarindo. We also highly recommend taking a taxi from Tamarindo to the Auto Mercado which is a very nice grocery store about a 5 minute drive from there. The folks at RPM were awesome and very helpful whenever we had questions about anything. They also made sure we were picked up from the airport late at night and taken to the villa with keys in hand as well as returning us to the airport for a very early flight. We never had any issues with anything. The people of Costa Rica are some of the friendliest people we have met, we always felt completely safe and secure. There is also a safe in the Villa where we could keep our valuables when we were not there. Thanks again so much - we had a great vacation!!!"
