  • 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."

    "It was our second visit to the condo ; this time for 9 weeks. The spacious balcony located above the pool is sunny with partial shade. It provides a fine view of the surrounding landscape. The interior is well furnished and the kitchen has everything you need. Groceries and car/golf cart rentals are a 5 minute walk beyond the security gates. There are numerous shops, local markets and restaurants along the 1 km stroll to the ocean. Should you choose to do some excursions be sure to drop in on the Sibu Tours storefront. Their services cannot be beat. The condo provides all the amenities needed. The owners ensure everything is as advertised. Milagro, the management company, are great people to work with. Using this condo as a base will ensure a comfortable, safe and carefree vacation."

  • A slice of heaven!

    "This was my first trip to Costa Rica. As customary on our family trips we got lost on the way... from Liberia Airport to Villa Diosa del mar. Petra, the patient, warm and inviting concierge, drove a half hour to meet us to guide us to the property. GPS is a must, particularly when traveling unmarked dirt roads! Lesson learned! We arrived in the dark so we couldn't see or appreciate the full scope of the property. We woke up to a slice of heaven. It's hard to put into the words the beauty of this gem of a home and surrounding land. The attention to architectural detail, landscaping, lighting, infinity pool, furniture and art were phenomenal. Nothing was left undone. Beautiful to look at and ultra-functional for our family of eight including seven adults and a 15-year old. The property offers ample space for everyone to find their spot, and the individual casita-type rooms provide privacy and comfort. The bedrooms, all with king-size beds are air-conditioned providing a respite from the humidity and "interesting" bugs. My only suggestion to the homeowners would be to air condition the kitchen area, which would make evening dinners more comfortable and allow family members to linger longer versus rushing off to the cool comfort of the bedrooms. Petra was a godsend! She appeared within minutes whenever we called her with questions or for recommendations regarding activities or dinner reservations. She was accommodating and appropriate. Btw, upon arrival the fridge and kitchen were stocked with the grocery list we had provided her via email. She was a pleasure to communicate with prior to our trip and lovely to deal with in person. The same goes for the rest of her team including the affable housekeeper, Lara, who went out of her way to take good care of us including cooking delicious breakfasts and dinner. Big tears from me when it was time to say goodbye to heaven on earth. No doubt we will return to Villa Diosa del mar again someday. Until then... thank you for showing us the pure life! Pura vida!!"

  • July 2016 - Family Vacation

    "My wife and I and four teenage children loved this property. The setting is breathtaking, with views of the volcano and lake. Very nicely landscaped, with many species of birds visiting. Viewing the sun setting over the lake from the 2nd floor veranda hammock is an ABSOLUTE MUST! Large rooms with great views provided plenty of space for everyone's needs. We could comfortably gather as a group, or retreat to one's own space. The on-site WIFI easily powered all of our devices, and kept the teens happy. Along with the pool table, awesome large swimming pool and hot tub. Great for unwinding after a day of adventure. The property is conveniently located- a short trip (5 min.) to town for shopping and eating out if you desire (although the on-property kitchen is large and well-equipped to prepare anything if you choose). A freshly made, hot breakfast was provided each day- a great treat that allowed us to be into the day's events quickly each morning. A short drive (less than an hour) to numerous destinations like canyoning, zip-lining, hot springs, volcano. Michelle was very helpful in setting us up with reservations for adventure outings and dinner- in several cases she managed to get deals better than published rates. Alex was great, and led the daily horseback rides through the countryside, pointing out the toucan nests as we went! Highly recommend for groups and families."
