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...

Amazing Luxury Home

  • 5 of 5

Villa Kanda was the perfect home away from home for my family's stay in the Tamarindo area of Costa Rica. This home is beautiful! The views were breath taking! We could have spent the week lounging around the pool, reading books and listening for the morning calls of the howler monkeys and been perfectly content. Instead we chose to visit several local beaches, drove to Monte Verde, attended a bull riding event in Villa Real and went horseback riding. All of these activities and more were convenient to the location of the home. (Monte Verde was a bit of a drive but manageable for a one day excursion)

I also cannot say enough about the staff that comes with the home. A maid and gardner take care of the home daily. Yamulette arrives early every day! She will clean the entire house, she will do your laundry as well as make sure pool towels and bathroom towels are fresh. She will e set your breakfast table in the outdoor dining area and make fresh orange juice. Wilbur takes care of the pool and makes sure the grounds are immaculate. (He even rinsed our rental cars one day to remove the dust) They both are very quite, most of the time we didn't realize they were at the house we just enjoyed the benefits of their labor.

Caroline the property manager was also perfect. She made us feel welcome from day one! She was helpful with recommendations for things to do, provided information and a house phone in the event we might need her. In fact we did need her to help with one of the safes when we didn't pay attention to the instructions for operation. Caroline was pleasant when we needed her help and came by quickly to help us remedy the situation.

Additionally, Caroline offered a recommendation for a chef. We hired the chef for our evening meal on the day we arrived. The meal was delicious! A tasty seafood meal, including an appetizer, main entry and desert. Thanks to Caroline for the wonderful recommendation!

If you are planning a week long vacation I highly recommend this Villa Kanda .... only I would suggest you stay two weeks!

Owner's Response: Dear Shirley, I can't believe how many activities you got to do in just one week! The best thing is that you still had time to enjoy the house. Even though you stayed only a week, I bet it felt longer! We love to see family gathering for their vacation, spending some time with each other and having such a good stay at Villa Kanda. Please come again anytime! Best to you all, Caroline

Caroline, Yamileth and Wilder.. thank you SO MUCH for having us for the week. Our group of seven could not in our wildest dreams have imagined how neat a place we had rented, until stepping foot into this paradise. From the bumpy, laugh inducing off roading to the villa to the fresh squeezed OJ and meticulously up-kept home, everything was spot on! The weather was perfect and we enjoyed getting to know the area through Caroline's suggestions. Definitely recommend the yoga with Mary as well as local charters, visiting the sodas, beaches and beyond. Also, wake up early and sleep with the doors open to hear the monkey fams in the trees!

Again, thank you.. we look forward to returning!

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 !
