I used to be a horse breeder in France. I like all kind of nature: sea, countryside, mountain... i grew up near Paris and my farm was in Normandy, few miles away from the D-Day beaches of WW2.
I moved to Costa Rica for the sun and the Nature... but before everything for the people. I travelled more than 30 countries, and Costa Rica is really a place where i feel confortable, thanks to the welcoming of the Ticos...
Caroline LEMAIRE purchased this villa in 2014
I was looking for a place to live and i fall in love with that house the first time i saw it... It s the perfect combination between confort and wild, between ocean and jungle... The view on the valley and on the ocean kept my breath for a long time when i first look at it. And this is stil what i do every morning when i get up... Looking the costarican nature while drinking my coffee...
The moment you will enter the house, you will be falling in love with it. Every little spot of the house is a place where you want to chill, or eat, or enjoy a drink or a coffee with an outstanding view on the surrounding nature... The 100square meters rancho is the most special spot of the house where you'll spend a lot of time. The pool right next to it, will allow you to enjoy swimming, or chit chat with your friends, and watch the vast sky and stars at night...
What an amazing home and property! The house was pristine upon arrival and stayed that way thanks to the house cleaner who came everyday 6am-1pm. I came with my husband and 3 sons so having someone do our laundry and dishes everyday was a true getaway for me. She also made fresh squeezed orange juice every morning as well. The layout of the home and openness is why I chose this house and it was even more spectacular then the pictures on the website if you can believe that! Only a 10 minute drive to Tamaraindo which was convenient, but far and high up enough into the mountains to have complete silence. Caroline the house manager was a dream to work with. She responds very quickly to email and text messaging. She arranged babysitting for us and recommended several attractions I was interested in. I will be back to stay in the house again and bring another family!!
From my initial inquiry into renting the home to walking the house during our check out, Caroline, the house manager, was lovely and incredibly helpful. The instructions she provided to get to the house were perfect and easy to follow (which is necessary as it is common for homes not to have addresses in this area). Caroline met us at the house and provided us with all we needed to know about the home, the staff and the area to enjoy our stay. Yes, there is a staff! Yamileth, the housekeeper, is at the house every day for 6 hours. She quietly cleans the outdoor living area and kitchen from the night before. By the time we made our way downstairs, the house was immaculate and the table was set for breakfast. Wilder, the gardener, cleaned the pool, maintained the lush landscaping and even washed our car for us.
The house itself was amazing and representative of the pictures and description online. With the large, outdoor living area and the glass/iron doors opening up to the outside, this home is a wonderful combination of luxury and jungle living.
We have recommended Villa Kanda to our friends and are already planning a return trip ourselves.
What a wonderful place! We had superb four days at Villa Kanda, simply perfect.
The property, which is set on a hillside, is with style and exquisite attention to detail. All rooms throughout the house are very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. The garden is extensive with plenty of seating areas for outside eating, reading, relaxing. We had privacy and a spectacular vista! Overall it is a stunning property , one of the most beautiful we have seen in Costa Rica.
First we were afraid that Villa Kanda might be too far away from Tamarindo and beaches and the drive would be a hassle. But it was no problem at all and everything was within easy reach.
Rebecca, the house keeper, and Wilder, the gardener, were most friendly and attentive in all areas. And Caroline, the house manager, was incredibly nice, hospitable and provided many valuable tips for activities, beaches etc. When we left it felt like we have stayed at a friend's house.
Villa Kanda is one of the nicest rental villas we have ever stayed in, a very relaxing place we hope to return to!
Our experience at Villa Kanda was fantastic. The house is spacious, clean and comfortable with an incredibly well stocked kitchen and wonderful outdoor spaces and pool. Very comfrotable beds and everything in the house was well maintained. The housekeeper and gardener were very friendly and helpful, and Caroline, the house manager was incredibly hospitable and responsive. Lots of great activities nearby, including ziplining at Black Stallion, and a day trip to Playa Danta for beach and mountain biking
I could not have been any happier with this villa. It was absolutely amazing in every way. The rooms were very comfortable, the views were breathtaking. The maid was very helpful! The experience over all staying here was perfect. I highly recommend!
This house is stunning, situated on a hill overlooking a beautiful vista of rolling hills and the Pacific Ocean on the horizon. Although quiet and tranquil, the house Is within a 20 min drive of some incredible beaches and the bustling resort town of Tamarindo. The pictures on this website as well on its own website are pretty great but it's hard to describe just how beautiful and first-class place is. The kitchen is extremely well appointed and finishes and frnishings throughout the house are tasteful. In particular, the pool and pool area, and especially the outdoor living room, were wonderful. We spent most of our time at the house in the outdoor room: eating meals, reading, swimming. Just amazing.
One of the nicest aspects of the rental is that the owner has arranged for great staffing. Jamileth, the housekeeper, was there every day and kept the place spotlessly clean and also washed all of our laundry. Wilder kept the grounds in wonderful shape.
The communications with Caroline, the manager, were excellent. She made a great referral for surfing lessons.
All in all, we have rented a number of houses over the years and this place is our favorite. Salud.
There is a wide variety of nice beaches all around within 15 min driving. We have quality restaurants, supermarkets, health service, etc, easily accessible. Plenty of nearby tours and activities are available like surfing, paddle board, estuary tour, volcano tour, ATV, zip-lining, horse back riding, turtle nesting, etc. Home service like Chef or massage is also available upon request.
