About Caroline LEMAIRE

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

Why Caroline LEMAIRE chose Guanacaste

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...

What makes this villa unique

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...

La plus belle expérience depuis longtemps !!!

  • 5 of 5

Cette propriété est un vrai trésor caché. Puisqu'il s'agissait d'une nouvelle destination pour notre groupe de 6 adultes, nous avons fait totalement confiance à une hôte extraordinaire qui a su nous inspirer confiance dès le premier contact. Merci Caroline ! Nous n'avons pas été déçus. La propriété est magnifique répondant aux besoins de tous. Et que dire des couchers de soleil.... La femme de ménage et le jardinier étaient prêt a aider en tout temps. La plage est très accessible, mais profiter de la piscine était une alternative très agréable. PS: Le chef Jean-Luc Taulere nous a été recommandé par Caroline et je vous le recommande à mon tour. Magnifique soirée. Prendre le service tout inclus ! Villa Kanda a déclassé toutes les destinations visitées jusqu'à présent ! Vous ne voudrez plus jamais retourner dans un hotel tout inclut...promis !

To "anonymous", thank's for the unicorn ! Pura Vida to you too !

La gang de 6 !

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

There are truly no words to describe our stay at the villa. It was honestly so surreal - it really felt like heaven on earth. Caroline was nothing short of welcoming, friendly, and supportive; the maid and gardener were nothing short of helpful and professional; and the house was nothing short of perfect. It was all 100% better than we anticipated and trust me when I say that we were already anticipating it to be perfect. Words can not describe how unimaginably unreal (in the best way possible, like a dream come true) our stay and trip was. It was honestly the best birthday getaway ever!

Thank you so much to the owner for allowing us the pleasure of calling your beautiful home our own for 5 days, thank you to Caroline for your amazing friendliness and assistance throughout this entire process, and thank you to the maid and gardener for making sure we were able to truly get the most out of our stay.

P.S. we left a unicorn float for the owner and future guests to enjoy as a way to symbolize how magical our stay was!!

Pura vida!

Amazing Home and Property!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Luxury meets jungle... Villa Kanda was the perfect home for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Simply fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

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!
