This very private Villa is one of the few It's one of the few oceanfront villas located on spectacular Tamarindo beach. You can't get closer to the water without actually being in the water. It's also a short walk down the beach into town but far enough away to remain private and serene.

The oceanfront Villa is large enough to handle multi generational family vacations or a group of 6 couples vacationing in paradise. It is within walking distance to great restaurants, galleries and shops.

Amazing house and location!

The house was amazing. We visited Costa Rica with the entire family to celebrate Christmas and my 80th birthday. In total we were 15, ranging from 10 to 80. The house was wonderful and easily accommodated everybody. The layout of the residence created tons of personal space as well as great areas for group get togethers. But the location of the house was incredible, right on the beach and a ten minute stroll into town which had a great choice of restaurants and a local grocery store. I checked out several houses and beaches in the area, but most of the beaches are not near a town. We are glad we ended up in this one. We booked a lot of excursions before we came, but you could wait and have the house manager, Maria, take care of everything once you are there. Maria was great, she set up our pickups from the airport and helped us settle into the house. The house keeper, Inez, was a blessing she was friendly, efficient and accommodating and makes the best Costa Rican breakfast! Don't miss it!. Also not to be missed; have Maria make arrangements with the house chef. Also the grounds keeper Marvin and the security guard Alejandro were friendly and most helpful as well. We would definitely come back. If you are looking for an amazing house on the beach; stop looking right now, you have found it! Richard

Lots of Improvements!!

We stayed at this beautiful villa in 2013 during the same time. The new owners have really spruced up the place! The landscaping has been cleaned up with lovely flowers and shaded areas. There are new beds, linens, towels with brightly colored and updated bedding. Freshly painted both inside and outside the house really brightens up the rooms. Also, each room is well appointed with new safes, blow dryers, WiFi and TVs.

Also, the staff is caring and attentive.

My only negative would be the challenge with the security - lots of keys, codes, clickers to contend with when leaving the property. Otherwise a fabulous place for large groups who all wanted their own quarters.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have worked hard to reduce the number of keys each room has on their ring. Several of the guest suites have private entrances which are keyed separately. Each set of keys consists of a front door, gate and suite key. It does make a few more keys, but also allows for a little more privacy. It's a trade off, but most guests find they appreciate the extra security.

Better than expected, and I expected it to be great!

13 of us recently visited Villa Cascada for a week. We were all new to Costa Rica, so we were open to a number of options when choosing a place to spend the week. There were other properties that looked a little flashier, but doing it all over again we would certainly come back to Villa Cascada. The accommodations were fantastic for starters. The rooms are interestingly partitioned to allow most direct access from outside. Everything was nicely finished and well maintained. It's what you'd expect to get for a few million dollars in the states (the pictures don't do it justice). What you won't get in the states however, is the location.

In shopping rentals we looked at a number of places that were a "short walk to the beach", and we considered that just as good as being on the beach, but in the end, nothing compares to the location of Villa Cascada. Being beachfront meant everyone constantly wandered out to the ocean, just because we could. Need more sunblock, no problem. You don't have to walk back to the house, you're already at the house! The location is something we rated in the middle in terms of importance when choosing a property, but having been there, it's moved to the top of the list.

The thing is, it's not just that it's on a beach, it's on the beach IN Tarmarindo. You walk 50 yards in one direction and you're at Longosta beach club (we had a great dinner there by the way), and 100 yards in the other direction puts you in town.

Another great thing about this property were the people. The on-site housekeeper and groundskeeper don't speak a ton of English, but they do speak just enough to communicate. They were both constantly cheerful and happy to do pretty much anything that needed doing. The housekeeper even cooked breakfast for us each morning for not much more than the cost of the food. She prepared a good variety of things and every day it was delicious.

There are a number of nice properties in Tamarindo, and it would be hard to go wrong choosing any of them, but for me, the location and the people put this place head and shoulders above the rest, regardless of how great they look in photos.

Oh, and did I mention the monkeys? There's a troop that makes their way through the palm trees by the pool every morning jumping from tree to tree. It was surreal.

Perfect Family Celebration Rental

  • Submitted: Jun 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
Everything was wonderful about this vacation rental! The pool, the staff, and the location. If we are to ever come to Costa Rica again we will definitely try to stay here. Great communication with the owner and the property manager. Because we had 4 families with children ranging from ages 3 to 20 the pool and the location right on the beach was perfect. Maria, the property manager, was extremely helpful in arranging trips for us and the house staff Innes, Marvin and Allejandro couldn't have been more helpful or capable. We also enjoyed being a 5 minute walk from town and didn't bother to rent a car. We also hired a chef to cook dinner for us and the food was fantastic. All things considered, this was our favorite family vacation ever! Thank you!

Big family happiness

I pulled together 14 people - grandparents, parents and grandkids 10-18 years old for this vacation. Everything set up perfectly. House Manager Maria was excellent point of contact to help organize transportation, outings and food. We just let Maria know what we wanted to do when, and it worked. Housekeeping is included, so we hired a cook to buy groceries, prepare every dinner and leave food for breakfast. We had a taxi/van service available at all times for longer trips. They picked us up and delivered back to the airport. Rooms are great and have own bathrooms - I loved the casita.

We still walked to the supermarket for things, but that was fun. We could walk into town via the beach or the road easily. The town was the perfect in-between kinda rough and cool, and safe and full of stores. Very casual. Restaurants in town are plentiful, easy to get cash at ATMs. We went into town everyday for something. We did a river cruise, zip-lining, surfing, scuba-diving, swimming at least twice a day, cocktails on the beach at sunset, horse-back riding, etc. You open the back gate and walk onto the beach! The beach is not developed, lots of trees and scrub instead of buildings. I especially liked that there is no division between vacationers and locals. There were as many Costa Ricans on the beach and in town on vacation as us. Being on the beach is key.

A+ vacation for everyone because of a great house, great house manager help to coordinate activities and food, and fun town/beach.
