Overlooking the point where Playa Tamarindo and Playa Grande intersect through the Tamarindo Estuary, El Chante is a tropical haven with sweeping ocean views that epitomizes any nature or surf lover’s idea of paradise.

A pioneer in luxury and sustainability, El Chante is in-arguably the most beautiful – and eco-friendly – private house in all of Costa Rica. Each exquisite detail is placed with the utmost care and concern for the surrounding natural environment.

From an open-air architectural design eliminating the need for air-conditioning to recycled water irrigating the gardens, El Chante is a luxurious vacation rental you can feel good about.

Amid lush greenery and colorful fruit trees lay El Chante’s six distinct guest bungalows – each one just waiting to be discovered. Nestled in the trees, five of the bungalows act as individual bedroom suites, complete with their own private porch, master bath and bedroom decorated with authentic Balinese furniture, wood carvings and traditional art.

Dip your toes in the infinity-edge pool or stroll through rich Costa Rican jungle up to the main bungalow, which features a state-of-the-art kitchen, open-air living room, dining area and entertainment cabina. Or, perhaps simply lounge in your personal villa and soak in pure seclusion that elicits a truly intimate connection to nature as you take in breathtaking ocean views of the waves pounding the sands of Tamarindo beach.

At El Chante, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds: privacy and luxury set among nature with the comfort of knowing all the amenities, activities and excitement of downtown Tamarindo is right in your backyard.

We invite you to join us at El Chante and experience for yourself a one-of-a-kind paradise in Tamarindo. Indulge your senses and take pleasure knowing you’ve chosen the only house in Costa Rica built at the pinnacle of luxury, which simultaneously fosters a sustainable relationship with nature.

Reviewer Comments:

El Chante is great for groups who want to stay together in one property but also want to have their privacy. Great 'family room' kitchen for everyone to hangout in. Pool and pool cabana were amazing fun. Be ready for a good leg workout with all of the steps and hill heading up from the beach or town. Property staff are world class, so friendly and helpful.

Heaven on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect combination of luxury and simplicity, it's tasteful and well decorated. It is a beautiful open home that allowed us to feel in contact with nature. I came with a group of friends (couples and one kid) and we really enjoyed the privacy of each bedroom with its own bungalow as well as having an amazing huge living area where we could share our meals and hang out together. The pool / terrace area is just heaven, surrounded by trees and with a great view of Tamarindo's bay! The house staff is top notch at what they do and very friendly. The property manager was very helpful since before we arrived. Also thanks Cristina for setting us up with an amazing catamaran and atv tour, we had a blast!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall my experience at El Chante was great. However, I am quite disappointed at the broker I worked with. Not only was she unable to be reached the entire stay, but she was also dishonest about the bathrooms which are 100% outdoor. Had I known this, I probably would not have rented this property with my family. The house staff was terrific.

Located at the heart of Costa Rica’s Gold Coast Beaches, Tamarindo is the region’s most vibrant and dynamic beach town. Made famous for its unparalleled surf and laidback beach culture, Tamarindo draws thousands of visitors from around the globe to its shores every year.

Once an untamed fishing village, Tamarindo has grown into a miniature metropolis with a thriving and culturally diverse community of locals and foreigners alike. Tamarindo’s allure captures the spirit of many visitors who find it hard to leave after experiencing the consistent surf, year-round warm weather and healthy outdoor lifestyle encompassed by the Costa Rican phrase, ��Pura Vida.��

There’s something for every budget, background and taste in Tamarindo. Whether you’re looking for a 5-star restaurant or traditional local street food, Tamarindo has it all. The perfect combination of city balanced with nature, Tamarindo caters to anyone who craves an authentic Costa Rican experience with the comfort of knowing modern amenities can be found just around the corner.

Gift shops, international restaurants and beachfront bars line the bustling main streets of Tamarindo keeping the town full of life and energy even in the low season. Running parallel to the main street is Tamarindo Beach, a vibrant playground where you will always find sunbathers, surfers and beachgoers playing volleyball or hanging out in the sand. Flanked by Langosta Beach to the south and Playa Grande to the north, Tamarindo Beach is an easy walk to some of the area’s best hidden beaches and untapped surf spots.

It’s no surprise that an abundance of wellness, nature, beauty and healthy living has classified Tamarindo and much of the Guanacaste region as being located in the “Blue Zone��� – a place where happiness and life expectancy is among the highest in the world.

Less than a 5-minute walk to Tamarindo Beach and downtown, El Chante offers views of golden sands and azure waters with the dynamic town center as your backyard. Located in the quiet, northern end of Tamarindo, El Chante is close to the action, but secluded enough to avoid hearing any loud noises from the street. Also on this edge of town is access to the area��s best right-hand surf break. Even if you�����ve never picked up a board before, El Chante is central to multiple surf spots suited for all skill levels.

Further north of the property lies Las Baulas National Marine Park, a nesting ground for the indigenous giant leatherback sea turtles. Rich in wildlife, the area is home to an abundance of exotic species such as monkeys, iguanas and tropical birds.
