CASA IX CHEL,4BR 4.5 BA HOME+ 2 DETACHED STUDIOS, POOL, GATED, GARDENS

Tamarindo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, 2 detached studios (Sleeps 16)

Main house sleeps 10-12 people (2-K, 1-Q, 2-DBL, 2-TW).

Each studio sleeps 2 people (1-Q each).

Sleep up to 16 people with house & 2 studios.

Step through the gates of Casa Ix Chel and you'll find yourself in a tropical garden containing many species of tropical flowers and fruit trees including coconuts, bananas, papayas and lemons. Walk up the path to the main home and you will find the swimming pool, which has a shallow section designed for submerged lounging and the outdoor eating area surrounded by palms and bougainvillea. There's plenty of area to lounge in one of the teak chaise lounges, chairs or the teak dining table and chairs. The home and gardens sit on a quarter acre lot.

The home stands three stories tall. The architect used many curved lines and lots of exposed wood so there is definitely a nautical feel. Enter through the front door and you'll find the first living room, a great spot to read and relax. There is a small bar that connects with the large kitchen. The dining area has a picture window overlooking the pool and gardens. The kitchen is newly renovated with a six burner gas stove, range hood, dishwasher, two basin sink, and a large refrigerator, all stainless steel.

You'll find the master bedroom on the first floor. It has a king size bed imported from Java. The master bath has a double vanity and a shower with hand molded tub. There is also a powder room on the first floor for guests and people coming in from the pool area.

Make your way to the second floor and you'll find the second living area. There is a television sitting area and a large wrap around porch overlooking the pool and gardens. There are two bedrooms on this floor, one with a king size bed and one with a queen size bed, both with private bathrooms.

The third floor is home to the crow's nest. Here you'll find two bunk beds, each with a double bed and a single bed. There is also a nice bathroom with shower.

In addition to the main house there are two free standing studios (cabinas) that you may rent in addition to the main house to accommodate additional family or guests. . Each has a queen bed, kitchenette, stove, frig, and private bath. We are running a special for the cabinas at $100 each per week when you rent our home. The studios are located at the front of the property but are hidden from the main house by lush foliage for extra privacy. Perfect for couples, in-laws or teens.

Additional features include cable TV, DVD, wireless internet, all linens, and an outdoor shower and half bathroom. There is a washer/dryer located behind the house which is available for guests use.

'Downtown' Tamarindo is a short 2 blocks and the beach is 3 blocks from our home. Our rental agency will be happy to help you book any tours or excursions you are in interested in for your stay in Tamarindo.

IDEAL FOR GROUPS AND FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
Casa Ix Chel was perfect for our group's vacation with close proximity to shops, restaurants, bars and especially beaches. Outside, the pool is larger than we expected from pictures and the outdoor shower was key to keeping sand from being tracked inside. Inside, the bedrooms were great as each has its own air conditioning unit which was nice after spending our days on the beach. The house has lots of spaces, featuring two spacious living rooms although as a group of 7 we didn't even need the upstairs one. The spacious kitchen and grill just steps from the kitchen was ideal for cooking meals together and grilling out when not wanting to eat out at the nearby restaurants. However, for the nights out the location of Casa Ix Chel was ideal. All restaurants we ventured to are within a 15 min walk with my favorite of the trip (Season's) being only a few doors down from Casa Ix Chel. The downstairs living room has large, screened windows that we loved leaving open. The house has a great stereo system which we were able to hook up to our iPads, iPods, and/or computers. This was perfect for listening to music while by the pool or around the house. This house is great for almost any group dynamic whether it's couples, group of young adults, or families. If you have questions about restaurants or things to do in the area the property managers have great suggestions. You won't be disappointed!

PARADISE CALLS

  • 5 of 5
Casa Ix Chel is a hidden gem in Costa Rica that will only add to the memories of this trip to paradise.

The location is great. It is an easy 5 min walk to the beaches and even shorter into town. You will feel very secure in the property surrounded by tall privacy walls and a main entrance that remains locked. When you step out of the secluded compound, you find yourself only steps from the town with plenty of shops and grocery stores to stock the fridge.

We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the pool. It was much larger than we had expected and provided ample room for our little boy TJ to play safely all day and night.

The kitchen is excellent and well equipped. There is even a nice area just outside the door that can be used to grill fresh seafood over an open flame. There are also many restaurants within easy walking distance of the house that you need to try. Specifically, The Seasons was the closest and possibly the best we ate. We celebrated our little girls sweet 16 there and they provided an amazing meal and even an unprompted dessert with a candle for her.

The house is constructed with screens on the doors and windows that allow guests to let the calming Costa Rica winds circulate the house when the sun goes down or close all the doors and windows and let the AC do the work. The overall property is very well maintained and the natural foliage allows for wildlife sightings and even picking some fresh fruits.

IN RESPONSE TO ANOTHER REVIEWER. Yes the area behind the house where the washing machine is located is not as immaculate and consists of cleaning supplies and equipment. BUT if you went to Costa Rica to do laundry and hang out behind a house instead of the pool or the beach, we can’t help that.

The staff is courteous and quick to respond. They are bilingual and very accommodating to needs. They are also great at helping plan activities for your trip such as fishing, hiking tours, canopy zip-lines and more.

We had 7 people staying on the property and had more than ample space. Given the chance, I would go back and take more friends with me. YOLO.

COSTA RICA TRIP - FIRST TIMER

  • 5 of 5
The house is absolutely beautiful! The kitchen and bathrooms have been recently updated and are very nice! The house is also located at the back of the property and is very private for being close to town.

We had 7 people staying and it every one had their own space and we never flet cramped.

The pool is a larger than it seems in pictures.

This is a great location to the city center and beach. You could be on the beach or in the town in less than 5 minutes walking!

Great restaurants all around you. Seasons a few doors down is amazing!

Would recommend this house to groups and families as there is a lot of space. And there are two cabinas in the front of the property that people can stay in.

AMAZING RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
Casa Ix Chel is a terrific rental property. The location is near the beach and the main strip, but far enough away that you won't see or hear people or traffic. The pool is terrific and much bigger than expected, we spent most of our time in it. The kitchen is well equipped and I recommend hiring a chef to make the most of it, we did this for 2 nights and it was perfect. Wifi works well once you get it connected, great fans, air conditioning worked and the property was generally clean and well kept. The reference in 1 review to the garbage in the back - the 'back' is way around the backside of the house, so much so that it could be someone else's property. We didn't even notice it. The property is very private will huge trees and flowering bushes. Very secure with a gate lock and locks on the doors. Comfortable reclining sofa and chairs. We had 9 people stay very comfortably here and would go back in a heartbeat. Ask about the restaurant located up the street (2 minute walk - not toward town), it's a 5-star hidden gem. We had a couple of water issues but that just happens sometimes in the city, and we tripped the breaker twice with too many people showering and too many air conditioners on, but we were pleasantly surprised that even the 3rd floor air conditioner kept things very cool.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This exotic paradise beach town is only enhanced by a stay in this beautiful property. The house and garden are gorgeous and very private. The pool wrapped around the front of the house is amazing and very welcoming. We found the property to be very clean and spacious, plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was "state of the art" with everything we could possibly need to cook our fresh fish and groceries.

It is a short walk to the beach, excellent restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, etc. We took a deep sea fishing tour, estuary tour to see the howling monkeys and our favorite was the zip line tour at Pura Aventura. We stayed 11 days so we had plenty of time to see the sites, take tours, visit the beach and relax at the house pool, our favorite location to relax.

The staff was very accommodating with any needs or questions we had, but they stayed out of sight most of the time we were there. If we needed anything, they were just a call away. And the staff was so friendly, we looked forward to greeting them when they did stop by. It was also very nice to have 2 sets of washers/dryers on the property to wash our clothes and towels.

This was the best vacation we have ever had and we will definitely recommend it to our friends. We can't wait to go back.

JANUARY GETAWAY

  • 2 of 5
Location on this property can't be beat. The pool was a blessing in the 95 degree temp we had all week. However..............if you want privacy on this property forget it. During the week and I mean M-F the back of the house where the washer and dryer are located is the meeting area for locals hired to care for this property and others, anytime from 7am to 4pm someone is walking through the yard to collect something or wash something from another property (nice people just doing their job).
But still it got old real fast. The area behind the house is in shambles there's nothing but junk located back there. We did our laundry a couple times and it wasn't a pleasant place to be.
The house itself could use a good cleaning. Not to mention when you would open the kitchen drawers you would wonder if a not so little cockroach was going to be there.
All the bedrooms have bathrooms which is great. However the crows nest shower has nothing but cold water. So whoever stays there may have to shower in another bedroom if they want hot water.
The house has been well used. Garbage collection happens (we believe) once a week outside the villa
so it was pretty smelly when you exited to go out. All said and done we made the best of it and the place grew on you.
