Overview

Playa Langosta House Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Villa Jazmin is Tamarindo's ultimate vacation rental! This three bedroom villa is exquisitely furnished. It features over 2,000 square feet inside, over 400 square feet of gardens and sleeps up to 7 guests. Three soothing fountains, tropical gardens, a private swimming pool and air-conditioning throughout the property provides the perfect environment in which to relax and unwind.

It is a joy to have your own private swimming pool! The azure blue-tiled pool is available to you night or day in perfect seclusion. Villa Jazmin provides luxury living with the excitement of Costa Rica right outside your front door. Howler monkeys can regularly be seen in the local trees and the path to the beach is directly across the street from the villa.

Simply cross the street. 1-2 minutes to be on the beach! Beautiful Playa Langosta is a secluded, white sand beach. Enjoy a romantic sunset walk or simply relax for the day. Langosta is perfect for sunbathing, surfing or an exhilarating dip in the warm Pacific Ocean. Warmer than Hawaii!

Returning to the villa, each of the three air-conditioned bedrooms has its own complete bathroom and shower. But these are no ordinary showers. Each bedroom's shower has its own tropical garden!

The downstairs master bedroom has a queen sized bed and a large bathroom with two sinks. Its shower looks out to the master bedroom garden - where lounge chairs and a soothing fountain provide a relaxing and private retreat area.

The lovely upstairs front bedroom has a queen sized bed. An additional trundle bed is nestled in a draped alcove area. There is also a wet bar - to help you enjoy cocktails in your room. Don't forget the private bathroom and garden shower.

The upstairs back bedroom overlooks the pool and tropical backyard. In this bedroom there is a choice of bed designs. You may choose to have two single beds or you may have the beds made up together with king-sized sheets to form a king bed. This bedroom also has a bathroom and garden shower.

Experience the relaxation of the great room which is complete with a 46' Samsung flatscreen LCD TV and DVD player. A sound system flows throughout the villa, with iPod cable connection and volume controls in each room including the pool and patio area. Bring your favorite CDs and movies to enjoy the comforts of home. WiFi connection is free.

The fully equipped kitchen features all the dishes/utensils you will need and the most modern American-style appliances, including a dishwasher, oven, cook top, deluxe refrigerator, ice maker, filtered water, microwave, coffee pot w/ coffee grinder, toaster oven, blender, and an outdoor propane barbecue in the patio area.

For your convenience, there is a complete laundry room with washer and dryer. Full maid service 2-3 times per week adds to the comfort and ease of your stay. All linens, bath and beach towels are provided. There are ceiling fans in all rooms. A safe for valuables serves as perfect storage for items such as computers, phones, passports, etc.

At the end of the day, why not barbecue around the pool. An outdoor granite table seats 6-7. Or try one of the many fine gourmet restaurants in Tamarindo.

Numerous delicious restaurants are within walking distance of Villa Jazmin (Lily's, Cala Luna, Sueno del Mar Bed and Breakfast and Barcelo Hotel's fine dining room). A little further walk includes the Capitan Suizo Hotel and the popular Langosta Beach Club.

If you are interested in local activities, the sunset sailing cruises and deep sea fishing excursions are remarkable! You can rent surf boards or boogie boards for the waves of Tamarindo Bay. Horseback riding along the beach is very popular as are the canopy tours through the local jungle forests. The Pinilla championship golf course is only about 20 minutes away.

With all of these wonderful amenities and activities, your stay in Costa Rica will be one you'll never forget. You will want to return again and again. We hope to be welcoming you to beautiful Villa Jazmin!

Villa Jazmin #3, Villas Cerca del Mar, in the elegant Langosta neighborhood of Tamarindo.

About Cathy Maddams

My husband and I are retired and live in San Jose, CA. We thoroughly enjoy traveling to Costa Rica, and I have been doing so for over 13 years. One thing I love about having a vacation rental in Costa Rica is helping people to optimize their holiday experience in this beautiful country. Owning Villa Jazmin affords us the opportunity to stay in Tamarindo 2-3 times a year which keeps us up to date with the area and local amenities. We have found the town of Tamarindo to be the ideal vacation spot with its gorgeous beaches, water activities, wonderful weather, friendly locals, unique shopping and restaurants with a wide selection of cuisines.

Cathy Maddams purchased this house in 2002

Why Cathy Maddams chose Guanacaste

After realizing that this was my favorite vacation spot in the world, I decided that it was the perfect place for my second home. Sharing it with you is an added bonus.

What makes this house unique

Here are the highlights of what I love to do in Tamarindo: eat out, BBQ in, take daily walks and/or horseback rides along the beach, play golf, sit in the morning sun with my coffee, nap on the lounge chairs, walk to town to shop and have macadamia nut pancakes, pineapple pie or shrimp tacos. My favorite restaurant is the Langosta Beach Club. On the beach, great food and entertainment two nights a week around the pool.

Fabulous villa for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Cathy for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. It was so comfortable for the 6 of us and we all loved hanging out in the pool each day. We would recommend this to anyone who wants a villa with plenty of space, privacy, nice air conditioning, and located close to the beach. Also if you enjoy cooking your own meals, this villa is perfect with a nicely stocked kitchen and also has an outdoor grill. The cleaning staff were so nice kept the villa and the pool so nice. The wifi was actually than our own wifi back home! We would hang out primarily at playa Langosta where there was great body surfing waves and good waves to learn to surf on. We walked into Tamarindo usually twice a day to hang out at the beach there, shop, dine, and also to meet up for the sunset sailing trip. We enjoyed the walk as that is when we would see monkeys up close as well as large lizards and beautiful foliage. We used Native's Way and went on their 80 ft schooner for a 5 hour catered trip with a stop for some awesome snorkeling. We also went on their 12 hour trip to Rincon del la Vieja to zipline, tube, ride horses, and enjoy the hot springs. What an amazing day. In Tamarindo, we highly recommend Nordico coffee shop for meals any time of day (breakfast, lunch or even a light dinner) - they have amazing healthy fresh food and smoothies and are located right at the intersection of the main road coming in from Langosta and the main road in Tamarindo. We also highly recommend taking a taxi from Tamarindo to the Auto Mercado which is a very nice grocery store about a 5 minute drive from there. The folks at RPM were awesome and very helpful whenever we had questions about anything. They also made sure we were picked up from the airport late at night and taken to the villa with keys in hand as well as returning us to the airport for a very early flight. We never had any issues with anything. The people of Costa Rica are some of the friendliest people we have met, we always felt completely safe and secure. There is also a safe in the Villa where we could keep our valuables when we were not there. Thanks again so much - we had a great vacation!!!

What an AMAZING VILLA!!.....1st Time using Homeaway and hope our future stays around the world will be as Amazing as Villa Jazmin. The only problem is you don't ever want to leave. Villa Jazmin is in the center of everything, you don't ever have to go to far for activities or entertainment. Costa Rica will be a hard vacation to top for future Family Trips.

Cathy Thank you soooo much for sharing your Amazing Villa with us....it was 10 days in Paradise. Tamarindo is safe and relaxing, the people are all soo welcoming, friendly and helpful. We will definitely be coming back or buying our own villa next door :-)

Best villa in town!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The house was much nicer than expected and had everything to accommodate our needs. We also loved the private pool and patio area which we used every evening. The A/C in one of the bedrooms broke but within an hour the property managers provided a solution. Having a bathroom in every bedroom was a must! I highly recommend this property and we are planning another trip next year!

Another Perfect Visit to Villa Jazmin

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from our second annual month long stay at Villa Jazmin... perfect as usual, the villa, the weather, the beach, the sunsets, the food and the wonderful people of Langosta Beach/Tamarindo. Special thanks to Cathy for letting us stay at your beautiful private home across the road from the ocean and to the team at RPM property management who made the stay effortless. Paradise found ! ... see you next year.

Beautiful Langosta Area Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using a VRBO and it was a fantastic experience. Cathy (the Villa) owner was a pleasure to work with and was extremely helpful in securing the Villa and providing knowledge on the Langosta/Tamarindo area. You can tell that she genuinely cares about your experience and was very prompt in answering any questions that I had. As well, the property management company (RPM Management) associated with the villa was fantastic as well - they were very helpful with any questions/issues during our stay and arranged transportation from the airport for a driver who picked us up with the keys for the villa which made it quick and easy to get our vacation started. They also help arrange some adventures for us such as ATVs and ziplining.

The villa itself is beautiful and extremely well maintained and cared for. We actually found it to be much bigger and luxurious in person than the pictures would even imply. The pool was beautiful and much needed as this part of Costa Rica is often very sunny and hot. There was an A/C unit in each room which worked very well to keep the place comfortable. The villa is well stocked with kitchen utensil, towels, a good sized safe for valuables and everything needed to make your stay relaxing and worry-free.

The location was good and felt safe - it is about a 20-25min walk to Tamarindo, which we walked to back for dinner each night. You can also hire a taxi for about $4-5.

We would absolutely love to return to this Villa again the next time we travel to this part of Costa Rica. Thank you for having us at your Villa, Cathy!
