Guestbook comments from the owner


DeSoto, Texas

Relaxing in paradise

Left on Sep 14, 2016 for a stay in Sep 2016

Although our stay was during the rainy season, we didn't let the rain keep us inside. We enjoyed morning walks on the beach, relaxing time in the pool, a wonderful spa day as well as dinner out. A few days we didn't see the sunset for the clouds but was able to enjoy a few. Each day was a mixture of sunshine and showers so don't hesitate to visit during the rainy season. Traveling into Tamarindo by taxi was easy and reasonable since we opted not to rent a car. The home is just as described with a fully appointed kitchen that allowed us to make breakfast each morning after our beach walk. The management staff was helpful and responded quickly to get rid of a wasp in one of the bedrooms. They repaired the downstairs 1/2 bath within an hour after our call. An enjoyable time that allowed us to renew and rejuvenate!

Awesome villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the villa for 8 days and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The villa was well equipped...the kitchen area had all of the required pots/pans/dishes/utensils etc... The layout allowed us to cook while the kids played in the pool or watched tv. There is also a bbq near the pool. There were a few games and books at the villa as well... we really enjoyed our nightly game of scrabble.

All the bedrooms were very spacious and the beds were comfortable. Each bedroom had its own bathroom&shower which was especially convenient. As well, all the rooms were separately air conditioned.

The pool was awesome, with younger kids (10&7 years old) we spent a few down days at the villa as the excursions are a bit tiring...the kids played in the pool the whole day!

The beach is a short walk away...we walked there and relaxed under the trees which offer great shade from the sun. There are plenty of seashells and a gentle tide for the kids to play. I was able to rent a surf board and go surfing right there.

The town and restaurants are close... a lot of people would walk or rent local transportation (taxi/golf carts/scooters etc). We had a rental car making it extremely easy to go to and from Tamarindo for restaurants or groceries. We also drove up the coast about 40 minutes to some very beautiful beaches (Playa conchal & flamingo)

My final comments are for Scott (the owner)...he is a very great guy to deal with! He responded to all of our questions and concerns promptly and was extremely accomodating. We have had bad vacation rental experiences in the past ...but he is very honest and helpful. As well, RPM (the vacation management company) was very professional and helpful both prior to and during our stay.

Perfect home for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 6 adults, and this house was absolutely perfect. The 3 bedrooms with attached baths provided the privacy we were looking for, while the living area and pool offered wonderful gathering areas. The management company was very responsive when we had a small appliance malfunction, and they also assisted us in booking ziplining, ATV and horseback riding tours. The house includes a landline telephone, so you can make local calls, and there are also beach chairs and umbrellas, a necessity if you spend an afternoon at the beach in CR! The beach is a short walk across the street, however, this beach is not good for swimming as the surf is strong and the beach is rocky. The swimming area of Playa Langosta is about 300 yards walk from the beach access area. Downtown Tamarindo is in walking distance (approx 1 mile), but I would't want to do it carrying a surfboard or in the heat of the day. We rented a car so it was no problem, but if you don't want to rent a car there are golf cart rentals available in the area.

The kitchen of this house was well equipped, and there are restaurants (pizza and tapas) right nearby. There are plenty of beach/pool towels, cable TV, and the AC worked fine. Even the staff, housekeeper, gardeners and security guards were super friendly. Tamarindo was a super fun town offering something for everyone. Rent this house! You won't regret it.

Beautiful house with amazing amenities

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised with the house being beautiful and in great shape. All ACs were working great and the whole house was great. The only drawback was one of the couches was a little dirty and had sand on it that wasn't cleaned when we arrived. The pool also needed a bunch of leaves removed both of which I did when we arrived. Other than that we loved the place, its short walk to the beach, it's short walk to the grocery was excellent and the pizza joint about a 100 yards from the entrance was great too. I never did figure out how to use the speakers in the house but I also didn't try very hard. We enjoyed the Netflix on the rest times, the pool every day and the fact that we partied all night long and didn't disturb any of the neighbors with the doors closed so we had a great time and would definitely return to this house if we come to Tamarindo again. Checkin and checkout was a breeze and they were cool about us hanging out an extra hour for the taxi to arrive. As long as the damage deposit is refunded in full (place was immaculate when we left) then I would give this place my full support for anyone who wants to visit playa langosta or tamarindo. Oh yeah the bedrooms and baths were excellent as well and having the laundry onsite was great too.

Beautiful Home in a Great Area - lots of monkeys too

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice, relatively new home in a great area. The big bonus was that we got to watch a family of monkeys climb through the trees 10 feet above our pool every day. The pictures are accurate - it is as nice or nicer than it looks. And the beach is right across the street.

Playa Langosta
Car: recommended

Located about 1 mile from the town of Playa Tamarindo , Playa Langosta is a quieter eco-friendly area of Guanacaste, but within reach of the activities, restaurants and shops of Tamarindo. Around the corner from Courtyard Villas, there is a super market, pharmacy and Internet cafe. A Shuttle from the airport in Liberia originates next door to the Internet cafe. Down the street is the Hotel Barcelo, with its casino and restaurant. Walk a few blocks to see 'Millionaire's way', an architecturally unique area nearby.
