Why Carol chose Tamarindo

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

What makes this villa unique

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

I have to agree with the rest of the posted reviews - this was a perfect home for a large family gathering. The location was ideal. We could easily walk to town for wonderful restaurants or stay home and cook. It was like we had a private beach all to ourselves. The staff was wonderful and took good care of our family. The best part was the owner who was so very helpful with the advance preparation. I can't recommend this home enough!!!

Costa Rica Luxury For the Average Family

  • 5 of 5
We choose the Villa Cascada for a birthday celebration that included a group of friends from all over the US. The pictures on the site are great but the actual villa is so spectacular that we thought we had died and gone to heaven (maybe Costa Rica is ??). We have many friends that have gone to Costa Rica and they talk all about the conservation and environment and beauty of the tropical forests and jungles and mountains. When we got back home, people ask us what we thought of CR and I am embarrassed to say that because of the gorgeous accommodations at Villa Cascada, we did not really leave the area and see what the country has to offer. It's really like what I imagine a "family compound" for the rich and famous would be like. Beautiful, spacious rooms and outdoor areas, unbelievable views, friendly and useful kitchen, great outdoor eating table that seats 12 people and an indoor dining area too. All the bedrooms are private and clean with comfortable beds, bathroom, safes, (and alarm clocks, boo!!), nice linens that are changed during the stay by a great staff.
The location is convenient. Every morning and evening we went shell hunting on the beach, walked to Longosta Beach Club for dinner or to town for a great breakfast or lunch. Too many restaurants within walking distance to try them all. Nice, reasonable, non-touristy shopping in Tamarindo. There is a grocery store within 5 minutes walk of house so we did cook many meals in the kitchen ourselves. The owner had told me about a chef to hire for the special birthday dinner and she provided everything so we could all sit back and enjoy the pool, sunset and outdoor gardens area.
We had not a single problem. The owner was so helpful and accommodating. She made our stay very special and relaxing. I would return to Villa Cascada again. The only issue would be how are we ever going to see the rest of Costa Rica with a gorgeous place like this to come to?

We took our family (all adults) of twelve to Tamarindo for a week. The property is beautiful and the location is the best. You can walk to town in about five minutes. Inis and Marvin where there daily keeping the houses and property in great. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay in the Tamarindo. The property is set up so each quest has there on space and the patio by the pool is a great place to gather. Our whole family would highly recommend staying here.

Amazing house and location!

  • 5 of 5
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!!

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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.
