Like many others, They like very much escape the winter. Anick as begin a new carreer recently as Travel Agent, and Kenny just sold his Automotive repair business to Import and sell Electronic target for shooting sports.

Kenny Proulx purchased this house in 2014

Why Kenny Proulx chose Guanacaste

Costa Rica surpassed every other destinations as it has a lot of attractions, beaches, sports like all year surf, eco-tourism, no really bad weather. Very hot sea so you don't need wetsuit for watersport. You can go there all year round as Guanacaste is the driest Province of CR, so it usually doesn't rain all week in rainy season. It has a really negligeable violent crime, and feel really safe. When searching for a home, Casa de Valencia always stayed on top condo we visited. It is really close to the beach, so if you forget something at the house, you just don't loose much time for going back for it! It is far enough from the disco club of downtown so you have peaceful night. Garden is very luxurious and it feel COSTA RICA!

What makes this house unique

Casa de Valencia was previously owned by Debra, she kept the place attractive and in perfect shape. We intend to keep it that way. Most condo you visit lack of glasses, towell or sometimes miss maintenance, all things you will have plenty at Casa de Valencia.

Tamarindo Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time on our recent vacation, in part due to your nice home and it's location to the beach. Your accommodations, the pool area, the outdoor dining and seating area, were all perfect for what we wanted. We enjoyed the walk to town everyday and experiencing all the local food, shops and especially the kind and generous people. Can't wait to return sometime!

Great location and everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Valencia was a great place to stay for our small family. The owners communicated well from the beginning and everything was as expected. The best part about this rental is being close enough to town that we didn't need to rent a car at all. The beach is right across the street and the walk into town on the beach is the best. We can't wait to come back a visit and we won't hesitate to book Casa Valencia again.

Casa Valencia, Casa Blanca #4

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Tamarindo. We were very comfortable in this condo. We were a group of 5 and we had plenty of room. The condo was clean and well equipped. The garden was beautiful. The pool was a pleasure after a day at the beach. We loved the large outdoor dining table. We did not have a car but found the location perfect with access to the beach and awesome restaurants. We would highly recommend this condo.

Wonderful location great home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Casa Blanca. The first time we stayed in the upper unit and this time the lower unit. Both of them have been fabulous. The grounds are beautiful and great pool. Both are maintained daily. We had all the amenities of home.

Several days the howler monkeys hung in the trees right next door so that was fun to see. Also so many colorful birds.

We were able to walk right across the street to get to the beach. Which by the way is a beautiful beach! Along the beach there are many restaurants to choose from if you decide to eat away from the villa.

We would definitely come back and stay here again. Love it!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Kenny/Anick,

The condo greatly met and exceeded our expectations!

Your taste in home furnishings is impeccable!

Beautiful pool and lush gardens, surrounded us! Great location for the beach, cheap and fine dining. Away from the busy Tamarindo night life! Fantastic nightly parade of howler monkeys and their babies!

The location, safety and just over all experience was perfect!

Pre trip communication was spot on with all questions and concerns addressed immediately.

Thank you in allowing the use of your beautiful home.

We will book again next year!

Only the best,

Deby and Chris

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to take our adult children on a vacation before babies came along, so I found Tamarindo and then found Kenny's villa. It worked very well with 6 adults and we greatly enjoyed the outside sitting area. This is where I would sit every morning reading my book, waiting for the rest of the clan to get up. The pool area was a huge hit as well, we spent a lot of time there since the first week we were in Tamarindo the beach was so windy that we were constantly eating sand. Since we like walking we didn't rent a car and walked everywhere, via the beach to head into town for dinner, or along the dirt road afterwards, do remember to bring flashlights.

To summarize, I would highly recommend this condo, we had a problem with one of the air conditioners in a bedroom, so we contacted RPM and after attempting to fix it they ended up having to replace the entire unit, fantastic service. I really have nothing negative to say about this condo, we loved it, as well, the gardener and cleaning staff take pride in their work.

Something to note if you're Canadian, everything is priced in US dollars, so with the exchange rates being so high, be prepared.

Thanks Kenny,
