Overview

Tamarindo House Rental Photos and Description

This is a private residence unique location just a minute from town and beaches.

If you are looking for privacy, panoramic ocean views, yet still want to be close to restaurants, shops, and all the amenities Tamarindo has to offer, then you have found your dream vacation home.

It feels magical when you arrive here. Like an island in the trees, located on a private hilltop of paradise and only a two minute drive to the center of town. The private road leading up to the house is lined with mature Guanacaste trees and lush native flora.

The residence is newly constructed and tastefully decorated. The floor plan features three bedrooms/bathroom suites and powder room. The Tamarindo suite has a calming mountain view with a gorgeous sunrise experience. The Langosta suite overlooks the ocean which boasts a large terrace where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets stretching from Playa Grande to Playa Avellanas. The third bedroom on the first floor also includes a private bath and beautiful French doors that open up to the patio and the tropical Zen garden.

The open air design of the main floor showcases a gourmet full service kitchen furnished with high-end appliances, granite counter tops, and custom wood cabinetry. The living area opens onto the spacious back terrace that includes an outdoor barbeque kitchen/dining area and infinity pool. Indulge in the sense of swimming in the forest canopy while swimming in the pool or relax on the terrace and enjoy some of the best views Tamarindo has to offer. A tiled roof covers a additional patio that enjoys a peaceful experience surrounded by lush green foliage where monkeys and birds visit.

The residence can provide full concierge service including tour reservations, fishing charters, rental car reservations, in home chef services, and real estate services.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Truly an outstanding place. Beautifully designed, beautifully maintained, and the views are breathtaking. I'm so glad we went this route rather than a traditional hotel. The owners were courteous, responsive and very helpful. The place was thoroughly cleaned with fresh linens left out for us upon arrival. This was exactly the type of place I hope to find when I search for properties on this site. I would stay there again without hesitation.

My kids want to move here!

My two young sons and I had a fantastic week in this house. Richard was super helpful and basically was a concierge half our stay - showing us the lesser known gems to visit in the area. This home is isolated enough that it felt like a nice private hideaway but was relatively close to beaches, restaurants, etc. We would definitely go back. Gracias Richard!

Hilltop Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house with a breathtaking view. The pool area was spectacular for cooling off and relaxing during the hot days and enjoying the sunset each night. The house had all of the amenities we needed and was cleaned and tidied up each day by a very friendly housekeeper. Richard was very personable and was always eager to provide tips and suggestions. Anytime we needed help with anything, he was available at a moment's notice. Thank you for helping make our experience in Costa Rica a memorable one!

Beautiful views and great service

  • 5 of 5
From the day we found this house and started asking questions, through the last day of our trip, we had a wonderful experience with not only the property, but the owners as well. First, the owners are very helpful, answering any questions you have prior to arrival. While there, they were also readily available to provide recommendations on activities, restaurants, best local beaches, private chefs and even helped book some of our excursions. It was like having our own personal concierge. The property speaks for itself. It is atop a beautiful hill that overlooks Tamarindo and the Pacific. The pool area may have the best sunset view in all of Costa Rica. We had four adults and two children ages 9 and 10 and the house was perfect for all parties. I would highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to Tamarindo. Thanks again to the owners for all your help, you made our trip that much better!

Very private with expansive view

  • 5 of 5
The villa was perfect for us and our two adult children and their partners for a week stay over the New Year holiday. The location is excellent for exploring Tamarindo and area, and within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and beaches. We would recommend a car for returning to the villa after dark and going on day trips. It was a real treat to make our own meals and dine at the house, indoors and out. The rooms were spacious and everyone had their own full bathroom. Richard is an wonderful host and concierge; the day at Playa Avellanas was a highlight. He reserved a table for us, supplied surf boards and showed the surfers where to go. We would highly recommend this villa.

FIRST CLASS VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at the home and it exceeded our expectations. The sights, sounds and over all feelings of the home just can't be put into pictures. Sitting on top of the mountain overlooking the Pacific is all anyone can ask for. Birds gently woke us in the morning and howler monkeys put us to sleep at night. The owner really is available 24 hours a day, helping us schedule tours and picking out fresh fish and fruit for us at the local markets. Aside from homes where the super rich live this home is where we all dream about living.

Berkey Review

  • 5 of 5
Excellent all around. If you are staying in Tamarindo, this is the place to go. Richard is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The house is beautiful with stunning views. The pool is large and the hilltop gets a nice breeze so its not nearly as hot as it is down on the beaches. Everything in the house is top notch and you feel very secure with the security system and gated entrance. We had howler monkeys one day in the tress directly in front of the pool which was neat to watch, and we heard them every morning. Would highly recommend. Thanks again Irina and Richard for an excellent vacation.
