Overview

Tamarindo Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 and half bathrooms, sleeps 10 people

Nothing is more precious than friends & family gathering to create memory of a lifetime. Designed with such in mind, Palm House is located in a secluded, gated, and private neighborhood, yet it is only 10 minutes away from area beaches & other attractions that Tamarindo has to offer.

The house has an open & inviting atmosphere. You will find yourself drawn to the thatched roof Rancho where you will spend most of your time relaxing by the pool and admiring the spectacular view of the green valley, rolling hills, ocean and sunset in the horizon.

It is a 2-level house. Each bedroom is a suite with its own bathroom. One master suite is on the second floor with a king size bed. A double glass doors opens up to a balcony offering the view. A guest bedroom next door has 2 twin beds with trundles (sleep 4). It also has its own private balcony.

Another master suite is located on the main floor with king size bed and 2 trundles. It features an outdoor private shower.

The Gourmet kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances such as cooktop, oven, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. The kitchen opens up to the family room providing enough space for family members to gather during meal preparation. Separated by bifold glass door from the kitchen and family room is the Rancho which provides outdoor formal dining and sitting area.

Our uniquely designed swimming pool has shallow beach area, perfect for sun bathing and unwinding during lazy days.

Enjoying the nature & the outdoors is what Costa Rica is all about. You’ll find yourself waking up to the sound of howler monkeys and birds in the morning. You have many sandy beaches, shops, and restaurants to visit and sample. Guanacaste offers attractions from hiking, surfing, sports fishing, kayaking, horseback riding, canopy tour, national parks, volcanoes to countless many others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the ultimate vacation in a beautiful country of Costa Rica. House is super contemporary and open. Not too big and not too small, easily fit family of 5, but 10 could sleep in if needed. All amenities and maid service...which we did not even need, we are not very spoiled and maintained this gorgeous house easily as everything has its place and there is no crowding. However the maid was a wonderful person and cooked for us and we shared lunches and drinks with her almost every day, sometimes we cooked, sometimes she did. Pool area is so pristine and green/turquoise water is refreshingly cooler than the ocean. Roads are a bit dusty and very steep to come into the gated community, but we only had a weak rav4 and did fine...stick shift is a must, though for these hilly bad roads. We had a complete privacy and about 15-20min. Drive to Tamarindo a cute little beach town...about 2h to Nosara and about 5h to Manuel antonio NP. This home is truly a gem and we will definitely come back. Monkeys are visible every day, beautiful birds and star gazers are in heaven with no pollution to night sky. The only weird thing is that sun sets at 6pm...equator is really close...so 12h of daylight is all you get...we got used to it real quick and enjoyed getting up at 5:30 and fell asleep way earlier than back at home in us. Activities are endless, we went snorkeling and zip lining...zip line is a walking distance from the home!!! 7 zip lines in one spot...awesome thrill. Beaches are so clean and beautiful and people are friendly. We met people who experienced theft from their car at the beach but everyone knows this is risky and no one should leave any valuables...especially passports anywhere in the vehicle. This happened in a daylight too. The home feels very secure and has a safe in the bedroom so all the stuff is 100% ok to leave. We however did not lock almost anything...only if we went out for the entire day. This could go on for hours...nothing bad to say at all...except maybe when you have children...it is a very slick anywhere on the floor, they are all concrete..beautiful, warm, clean...but a killer with wet feet...we flew couple of times...and it sucks to wear slippers...as concrete feels so nice on feet...but slippery as I said. One of the best vacations I ever took...and I have been to hundreds of places all over the states and Europe...you can hardly beat this.

Tellement grateful !

  • 5 of 5
Every evening, as the sun was setting on the jungle and howler monkeys were heard, we realise that we were so fortunate to enjoy a place as wonderful as the Palm house. The view is simply fabulous! And the sounds of the jungle are so amazing! You will meet some monkeys in the camino and they will charm you for sure ! In two weeks, it rained only once. It is true that the region of Guanacaste is not really concerned by the rainy season! The villa is located about fifteen minutes from Tamarindo Beach, where you will have, I hope, the pleasure of learning to surf. Don't miss the dazzling playa Avellanas ! It have been very hard to leave, heart break ... In our heart and memories forever ! Merci merci Tia for sharing your piece of paradise ! Marta, muchas gracias por tu generosidad y tu dedicación!

Better than Maui!!

  • 5 of 5
Maui had always been the relaxation destination of choice, and after 7 visits to Maui we now have a new #1. The house was amazing, the location was magnificent and the silence was golden. You have access to all the ammenities you could need either in the house or only a short 10 minute drive away. Combine this with the hospitality, care and attention the owner and their staff provided, you have the ultimate get away. I would highly recommend this location to anyone. Thank you so much for sharing your "jewel" Tia, the plan for a second visit is already in the works!!

10 Nights of Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5
3 couples stayed 10 Nights in this wonderful house. Marta the housekeeper was wonderful and she cooked for us many times, she became part of the group. The pool was used every day and we lived in the outside living space.

We had a wonderful woman come in for massages 1 day. $40 can't beat it!

The Howler Monkeys were a wonderful treat. We have so many videos of them moving from tree to tree!

The only negative thing I can say is the internet didn't really work after day 3. If you are a telecommuter DO NOT Count on this for work. Luckily I had some flexibility in this, but it did get frustrating after awhile.

Owner's Response: As described in our Welcome Guide, internet in Costa Rica is not as fast and reliable as in the U.S. We have equipped the house with the best rated router. Internet in Costa Rica is sufficient for checking/answering email, facebook, google maps, and browsing web, but it is not sufficient enough for connecting to your work/office, VPN, watching movies, downloading, opening, or sending large files.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
The Palm House is gorgeous, is located on the top of a hill, and has stunning views! If you are a first timer in Costa Rica and are renting a car, make sure it has 4WD. The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the back yard and pool area are amazing! Watching the sunset from the pool at night is truly indescribable and was a highlight for my family and I. We enjoyed coming back to this calming house after busy days of sightseeing. We would definitely come back to Costa Rica and we would absolutely stay at The Palm House!

Just fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
I'll say write off the bat - this is one place where the pictures on the website and the reality are actually TRUE!

The Palm House is just gorgeous! It made me think about investing in properties in Costa Rica.

We stayed there the last week of July. We were in other 'wet' parts of Costa Rica, and this was our final destination before heading back to the US. We wanted to relax - did most of the eco stuff (Arenal/Hanging bridges etc.) and wanted to just chill out. The Palm House is just perfect for that. What a great location. Just 15 minutes from the cute town (Tamarindo) + beautiful beaches (Flamingo, Grande etc.), 10 mins to the big mercado for groceries, and Sodas (if you need to get a quick eat).

What a beautiful villa - everything about it! The layout, the big kitchen, 3 big bedrooms w/ AC, bathrooms, living area (we were 8 people - 2 families). We spent gobs of time in the dining area which is an open layout under a palm leaf covered area - hammock + wifi + pool table + swimming pool: enough said!

Though it was July, it didn't feel it - we left the front door open and you get instant AC most of the time because the place is located up on a hill and has great ventilation. The views - just shy of 180, and spectacular we are "in" the mountains. Spotted a few Howler monkeys at a distance.

The pool was fantastic, temp felt just right - there was even a table w/ chairs "in" the shallow area, to sit and drink your margaritas!

The owners checked in on us to make sure we were comfortable, and told us the house keeper Martha could make us Costa Rican cuisine too - what a treat. She even made pancakes for our kids!

Now we know where to go for a real retreat! All in all excellent experience at the Palm House.

The property is located in the hill sides of virgin forest overlooking an undeveloped valley just minutes from the Pacific Ocean. Its a very natural setting with little neighboring constructions where sunsets are simply breathtaking and tranquility abounds.

Palm House is only 10 minutes from Tamarindo - Costa Rica's surfing capital with restaurants, shops, pharmacies and overall beach town amenities. The popular Flamingo and Conchal beaches are only 20 minutes North, while great surfing spots like Avellanas and Playa Negra are only 15 minutes South. The Playa Grande National Park renowned for the leather back turtles is just across the estuary of Tamarindo.

The Pinilla development is located 7 miles down valley and hostess luxury hotels, but also one of the top golf courses in Costa Rica. The Flamingo Marina holds world records in Blue Marlin and Sail fish; while the Catalina Islands are famous for scuba diving with Tiger sharks.

Adventure is minutes away from our house!
