  • Amazing

    "My wife and 4 adult children just returned from Costa Rica, staying 5 nights at Villa Encantada. When we first arrived, we were all so impressed. As each day passed, we just kept liking and appreciating your place more and more. The Villa is beautifully decorated and fully equipped. There was nothing I could think of that wasn't there at our disposal. It's perfect for 3 couples or a family with children. The pool feels like a private oasis. It is private and wonderfully tropical. It was equally refreshing at early morning, mid day or late night. The villa is located across the street from beach access, but not really a swimming area, it's too rocky. However, the sunset is amazing, so bring a cocktail and enjoy. The Langosta Beach Club is about a 10 minute walk down the road. We saw many many monkeys each day while strolling to the Club where you can swim, surf, eat, drink, walk. It is a great perk to have access to the Club. We spent many hours enjoying it's beauty. The people of Costa Rica are very accommodating and friendly. The town of Tamarindo is small, laid back and very safe. We all felt very comfortable there. I'd also like to highlight how efficient and responsive RPM, the management company , was to us. Well done. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. We travel a lot, we have rented many times. I would rate this property at the top of our list."

    "The house was bigger than I expected and comfortable. It was clean and organized. The yard is just a pool and a small table but to be honest, we only swam and stayed inside due to typical Costa Rica bugs during this time of year. The A/C units worked perfectly. They appear to be somewhat new and easy to use the remotes. I wish there were maybe 1 or 2 comfy chairs in the living room rather than just the sofa. We were all clumped on the sofa together so some room off the only couch would be nice. But, no biggy. Didn't spend much time in there anyway. The bed in master room a bit hard but I prefer that over too soft. Maybe add a pillow top cover with memory foam and problem solved! The shower head upstairs needs some TLC but not a huge issue. It worked and we showered with no problem. The kitchen is fully stocked with all pots, pans, silver, plates, glasses, etc...we had all we needed. We had some issues with the lights in the living room as they could not be turned off. We had a teenager who wanted to sleep in there (rather than with his little brother) so he had to sleep with the lights on. But, we blew a fuse one day and figured out that #16 on the panel shuts them off.....if you want to know. Gate lock downstairs is a little tricky and it made some of the guys mad...but, I never had a problem with it. Worked for me! hahahahha Just don't over think it...turn key, twist, pull door open. :) We rented a golf cart....WAY TO GO!!! Perfect for getting to the beach with boards, bags, towels, and children. We had to do 2 trips since there was 7 of us but only a 6-7 minutes drive. We rented bikes for a day but too hot to pedal around and kids tired easily. Rent a golf cart! Alan, JuanRo, Stephan, and team are the BEST! A+ service from these guys! Juan gave us a phone to call any of them when needed and we used was perfect. They accommodated our adventure needs with ease! showed up on time for every event (we were a bit late...but not those guys). The transportation always had A/C to keep us cool...and drivers were safe on the roads. Alan told us all sorts of cool things about Costa Rica and gave us tips for our next trip back! He's the best! I highly recommend the pure adrenaline tour! It's not for the lazy have your energy drink! So much fun!!! What else? Oh...we had a small electrical issue and Juan had a guy come out within minutes to fix it. I will use these guys next time...for sure!!"

  • We will be back!

    "Loved the week we just spent at this property! We could not have asked for more. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. We loved the privacy of three ensuite bedrooms and the open floor plan that afforded space for all. The pool in the complex was amazing and our own private dipping pool only added to the experience. We would not hesitate to recommend this unit to anyone and hopefully will make this an annual event!"

  • One of the best Vactions ever

    "My family of 8 visited Costa Rica in July 2016 and stayed at Casa Marbella. It is a beautiful, spacious house and well-appointed. The beds were great and I slept like a baby. Plenty of restrooms for my wife and three daughters. There are two masters with huge bathrooms. Our large family never felt cramped. Overall a great house to spend your vacation. I was anticipating the house being located more in the jungle but it is actually in a subdivision and you had to go through 2 guard gates. Although the backyard does have some trees and vegetation it was not as dense as I thought it would be. We did see the fruit bats that camped each day on the front porch awning. Also saw a tarantula. Neither the bats nor the tarantula paid us any attention and I thought it was actually a cool experience. Didn't see any monkeys at the house. The pool was a lot of fun but we only used it 3 or 4 times and never for any length of time. It is a bit narrower than the pictures looked to me. But we spent a lot of time at Playa Avellana and the Beach Club. Playa Avellana is so sandy and soft. The Beach Club beach is a bit rocky and I stumped my toes a few times under water. The Beach Club and Playa Avellana are about a five minute walk from each other. The water temperature is enjoyable and when I had enough of the ocean, I never really got too hot sitting on the beach either. Maybe that explains why we were at the beach for almost 10 hours one day. We loved the beaches. Sunsets are beautiful. I recommend eating at Lola's at Playa Avellana also. Sooo good. We ate at home most nights and the kitchen was more than adequate. Food prices are bit expensive, more than the US I thought. But it is a tourist area. The golf cart came in handy when going to the JW Marriott and the Beach Club. I'm also a runner so running inside the property was no problem and I found some cool routes. All in all, this house is great. A cell phone was provided which was a nice touch. Cyn, the property manager, was great and booked a lot of excursions for us and plugged the routes into the phone so we wouldn't get lost. I highly recommend Pura Aventura for ziplines. We also went scuba diving at Catalina Island and saw 3 bull sharks and a group of manta rays. What a great thrill. We used Aqua Rica and Billy was great to dive with but they did have to reschedule us. Small inconvenience. But if you visit Costa Rica, be aware the roads are really bad. Recommend a SUV is you rent a car."
