About Andrew

Welcome to our home

Andrew purchased this estate in 2012

Why Andrew chose Guanacaste

As Andy and his family took their first trip to Costa Rica, they felt in love with the surroundings of Tamarindo, encountering Playa Langosta's hidden gem of the Pacific, Villa Marrakech, a house so beautiful and unique among the beach front properties of this private corridor of secluded houses washed by the closeness of the pounding waves.

The unique and sophisticated feeling of the Villa Marrakech, combined with the architectural details that make out of this property a complete experience, charmed Andy and his family into what has become a recurrent wealth of feelings and emotions that entail the whole Villa Marrakech experience.

What makes this estate unique

From the doubled size front wall with its cooper and brass embedded gates the majestic entrance of the Villa Marrakech will take you on a distant journey from Occident to Orient, yet so close you can reach it with your own hands as you grasp the main entrance detailed door. With your first glimpse at the lobby’s Italian marble floors you will be enticed to take your shoes off and feel the cold stone chilling your entire body as you walk through and entrance of crystal walls surrounded by water fountains that reflect the shimmering sun.

Opening up to a 30 foot ceiling with colored incrusted glass on the top of the mesquite domes, that shine on the main living room and allows you to have your first sight at the splendid infinity pool that makes part with the Pacific Ocean surf, You will absolutely feel in a place where you will think of for the rest of your life and smile and come to peace, welcome to Villa Marrakech!

Making your way through the cozy living room and stepping out through the glass doors that clear the view of an earthly paradise you will be stepping down into another world, where elegance and sophistication meet some of life’s most basic and untamed elements, water and sand will merge into a whole different experience to blend into your approach as your fingers toes get pampered by a natural spa of beauty.

You have arrived in Paradise now just relax and let our professional staff take care of your every need and let you unwind on your own heavenly palace!

What a location! The property is a totally unique style that provides everything you would want in the best spot in Costa Rica, Tamarindo. The bedrooms are spacious and accommodating. The infinity pool is spectacular. It oversees the most beautiful sunsets imaginable right on the ocean. The property makes you never want to leave because it has everything you would want for a vacation including gym, BBQ, spacious kitchen, great wifi, and plenty of room for guests. To top it off the staff is the best.

Beautiful, peaceful, a true paradise

  • 5 of 5

There were nine of us that met in Costa Rica for a celebration of a major birthday. We have all been friends since High School and were looking for a spot we could all come together and spend time catching up. Andrew's home was that perfect spot. Not only was it a beautiful home, it had a gym, a lovely pool and was located right on the beach and within walking distance to downtown Tamarindo. It had plenty of room for us all and we could be together when we wanted too or could find the perfect spot for some alone time. Andrew was a delight to deal with and everything he said he could help us with, he did.

We were able to enjoy the pool or go snorkeling right outside the house. If you surfed, one of the best surfing spots was just a short walk down the beach and in the other direction, a short walk to downtown. Though the walk to downtown was a short walk on the beach, it was a bit longer walking the streets back and we ended up renting a golf cart as we had some that weren't able to walk much. It really was the perfect location for our group and we found ourselves mostly just enjoying sitting by the pool, snorkeling in the ocean or just listening to the waves crash.

Yerlin was the care taker and she was wonderful. She came everyday sharp at 8am and we barely even knew she was there. If we needed help, she would help us. She arranged for two masseuses one day to come to the house, help us with dinner reservations and even arranged for a private chef to come to the house one evening. Though she didn't speak much English, we were able to communicate and she understood what we needed. She truly added the extra bang to our trip and we all enjoyed her being around.

I would highly recommend this home and it looks just like the pictures, a true paradise.

The property was everything we were told it was and more.

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome. We had 5 couples and the house was plenty big for all of us to have some privacy. The staff was incredible. Yerlin and Diego were there to help us anytime we needed them. The outdoor area was great. No reason to ever leave it. Yerlin setup two dinners at the house that could not have been any better. Getting to Tamarindo was super easy. We rented golf carts and had a blast.

Quite possibly the best house in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at Villa Marrakech over the Christmas Holidays in December 2016 with our five children. This was definitely the best vacation we have ever had and this house could not have been more perfect! The owner, Andrew, was absolutely fantastic and went to great lengths to ensure that our stay was flawless. We spoke multiple times both before and during the trip and he really went the extra mile for us--all the way from organizing a chef to recommending activities. He even bought a Christmas turkey and left in the fridge! The house staff, Yerlin and Diego, were also incredible. They went above and beyond their duties to make sure we had a great stay, often surprising us with a gourmet breakfast. My wife even keeps touch with Yerlin on Facebook. The house is stunning with incredible architecture and ample room for a large gathering. The second floor balcony provides incredible views of the ocean. The five bedrooms are spacious and all have their own bathrooms. There is a huge great room area along with a separate dining area. The location is unparalleled located directly on the beach (there is a path from the property line to the beach--it's about 10 steps to the water depending on the tide). Right in back of the property there is a great snorkelling area at low tide. A short walk in either direction takes you to incredible surfing or boogie boarding. Just to the south of the property is Playa Langosta river mouth where there is a famous surf break. Just to the north are the Tamarindo beaches. Although the location is very close to the action in Tamarindo, the house itself is completely private. There is a gated front courtyard and the backyard feels completely secluded with total privacy as there are trees that form a buffer from the beach. The pool is fantastic and was a highlight for our kids complete with an outdoor shower for washing off sand. Another highlight was the incredible sunsets viewed from the beach each evening. If you are looking for a luxury house in the Tamarindo area then look no further. A short drive or a nice walk will take you into town but this location allows you to be on a quiet beach but still have all of the amenities of Tamarindo. We also explored multiple beaches in the area--Playa Grande, Negra, Avellanas, etc, all of which were a short drive away.

If you want to explore the beaches of Guanacaste and have a large group, this is the place to stay!

A gorgeous and magnificent retreat

  • 5 of 5

As a world traveler, I have experienced many beautiful places to vacation with my family, but I have to say that Villa Marrakech is absolutely by far the best I have ever stayed at. The home is beautifully designed and all details are attended to, from the chef's kitchen, to fabulous bedrooms and baths, to the excellent outdoor terrace and pool area, and access to the most exquisite beach spot ever. It was such a beautiful addition to have a staff of loving attentive house helpers, and keepers to attend our every need and give us the feeling of staying in a luxury hotel. We also had an incredible level of service from our gracious owner, Andrew, whose advice and guidance made our two week stay that much more delightful. Five stars doesn't seem enough to us. We can hardly wait to return.

Absolutely Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Costa Rico is a beautiful country with plenty of sites to see and amazing people. After a day or night of sightseeing I always looked forward to returning to "MY" Villa. LOL. Villa Marrakech is incredible, I felt like a princess. The main room is open and welcoming, making you instantly feel at home, I was ready to kick off my shoes and relax. The bedrooms are amazing with 5 to choose from. I absolutely loved the kitchen, it is a chef's dream. To top it all off, the view of the ocean right from the backyard took my breath away, the beach is literally steps away from the Villa. My favorite part of the day was relaxing in the Infinity pool that looked like it was cascading right into the ocean. It was great to be spoiled and pampered by the staff for a whole week, this is not normal in my daily life. Parting was such sweet sorrow, but I hope to get back to Costa Rico and stay in "MY" Villa again. Villa Marrakech is truly a gem!!!

Lying on the Pacific Northwest Coast, just south of Tamarindo, one of the most popular destinations on the North Pacific Coast of Costa Rica is the exotic and sandy beach of Playa Langosta. Known for its incredible surfing and gorgeous beachfront. Playa Langosta is ideal for those who want to have some fun while enjoying the stunning beauty of the area.

A great beach for a quiet stroll, Playa Langosta at its southern end sits near the mouth of an estuary and has an excellent surf break here. Also close to the Las Baulas National Park, come here between October and March to catch a glimpse of the leatherback turtles that nest in the area.
