  • 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."

  • Perfect!

    "Our family of four along with another family of four just returned from our first trip to Costa Rica. The Villa was perfect for our families. We had plenty of room and were able to make many of our meals in the beautiful kitchen. The property manager is amazing! She helped us plan activities and gave us good tips on restaurants in the area. You won't be disappointed with this Villa or the property manager."

  • Fabulous Ladies Getaway

    "We had a WONDERFUL 50th birthday celebration with 16 ladies at Villa Parasio! The property has an amazing view and the set up of the house was perfect for 16 ladies with each bedroom having it's own bathroom. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out with multiple seating options outside. The breakfast prepared by Rosa was delicious and she changed up the menu almost everyday. The road up to the house is very steep. Highly recommend using a taxi to go up and down the hill unless you are looking for a great workout. Rebecca was great to work with in booking the reservation and very responsive. Marcelo and Fiorella were excellent concierges. They were engaged right after we booked our stay helping with airport transportation, chef services, welcome baskets, restaurant and tour recommendations and coordinating massages for the group. The weather was beautiful in February, not too hot, not too humid (it was, however, very windy). The town of Tamarindo Bay itself was very lovely with plenty of shopping, dining and excursion options. We were a group of sisters, mothers, cousins, friends, aunts, nieces and daughters all looking for a great place to unplug and recharge. The Villa Parasio in Tamarindo was the perfect place to accomplish this."

  • Very Relaxing!

    "This place is a little hidden gem! The pictures truly don't do it justice. We took our two teenagers here for spring break/senior trip. We didn't know that spring break was the busiest week in Costa Rica. Most of the people that live in Costa Rica get that week off as well. BUT that is what was so great about this house. It is VERY private, clean and comfortable. The week we went was very hot. We would go to the beach early in the morning until around 11 (when it would start to get crowded) then we would go back to the house and chill at the pool and the shade until around 4:30 and then go back to the beach to play in the waves. Tamarindo was pretty crowded but the kitchen had everything we needed and we ate most of our meals there. The grocery store is very close and had just about everything we needed. I would recommend this house to anyone who asked about going to Costa Rica. Thank you so much for sharing your home, we loved it!!"
