Where do I begin!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Having read all the previous reviews I knew the villa was going to be fabulous but it exceeded our expectations!

It is stunning and immaculate, everything is of the highest quality and is simply beautiful.

The gardens and pool are so well maintained, as is the interior. I loved the style of the villa and the furnishings.

The outdoor grill was brilliant and we cooked on it most days, which was handy as we have 3 hungry boys.

Andrea the housekeeper came everyday and was so pleasant and helpful. She insisted on doing all our laundry and even washed dishes which I had left in the dishwasher to put on later!!

Olivier was so wonderful and charming and was very patient waiting for us to arrive later than I had told him ( we had issues with the car hire company- you must purchase the local insurance which we weren't aware of and had bought our own through Expedia)

I cannot say enough good things about our stay and I look forward to returning soon.

Thank you Olivier and Andrea for making our family vacation so memorable.

Also, to note that we are minutes away from Black Stallion Ranch, the ziplining and BBQ is a must- unfortunately it rained on the afternoon so we were unable to horse ride- but will do that when we return.

There are many restaurants in Tamarindo and the supermarkets are well stocked too.

We booked a private snorkeling boat trip with Discovery boat trip and our guides were also great.

Plenty to do nearby and further away if you wish.

Overall an extremely relaxing holiday.

Amazing experience, can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

When looking for a place to rent in Tamarindo, we picked this Villa because of the other 5 star reviews, and I'm so glad we did!

This house was AMAZING, really well designed, maintained, and in the perfect location. If we ever come back to Costa Rica, we will definitely stay here again! Oliver was an incredible host, answering any questions we had before our stay promptly. He was also there to greet us and say goodbye, making our stay effortless. Andrea was there every day, and although her English was limited, she was cheerful and always willing to talk (or let us practice our Spanish!). We couldn't get over how thorough she was, seriously the best!

We would highly recommend staying here- great location, wonderful hosts, and a house with all of the amenities you'd need on your time away.

Amazing Amazing Amazing

  • 5 of 5

To anyone who is thinking this house could not be as nice as the pictures, please know you are sooooo wrong. We stayed 4 nights and I already want to go back. The house is absolutely amazing. I am such a skeptic person, i thought the house wouldnt/couldnt be as nice as the pictures but please know i was so wrong. The view from the master bedroom is breathtaking. Going in February, it was hot during the day, so having our own pool was a bonus. The rooms are a great size, I literally can not find one thing wrong with our stay. Having someone come in every morning to clean/tidy up/make the beds was great. I would recommend this house to anyone and everyone. Olivier is the best host ever! He was super attentive to our needs and helped guide us since this was our first time in Costa Rica. We did the Buena Vista (Rincon de la Veja) Mega Tour- zip lining, waterslide, horseback riding, and hot springs... awesome time. The trip there was about 2.5 hours but we used a service to take us so we slept the entire way there and back! We booked thru JW Marriott which is in driving distance from the house but there are so many tour guides around, you can choose anyone you'd like. FOOD was great! We ate at Patagonia and Nari which are my favorites! Olivier will help with recommendations for food too! Playa Flamingo beach was beautiful. Olivier recommend Playa Mina beach but we weren't able to make it there. Just know, all in all, Costa Rica was amazing, Olivier was amazing, and the house is absolutely AMAZING!!!! Hope this helped!

Amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled at the level of quality and beauty of this house! It was close enough to Tamarindo to visit the beaches and restaurants,but provided privacy upon returning to the house. Loved the pool!!! It was a perfect size to thoroughly enjoy (and big enough to swim laps)

Both Oliver (property manager) and Andrea the (daily housekeeper ) kept the house spotless and in great order.

We would return most definitely. Loved every minute.

One of a kind Experience

  • 5 of 5

There is so much I can say because everything was so amazing.

We stayed here for 4 nights - 3 couples - and one BEAUTIFUL HOME.

We were greeted by Olivier upon entering the home and were given a short briefing of the security code, wifi password (to which he joked the house wasn't equipped with - you should have seen the look on my face! He's got a fantastic energy about him)

Olivier recommended 2 restaurants and several beaches for us to visit. Patagonia, an Argentinian restaurant was high on his list and it certainly did not disappoint. The real star of the trip was his second recommendation - Soda Y Marisqueria Marcela - a local eatery with some of the best (and most affordable) food we had on this trip, 4 ladies that were generals in the kitchen and pumped out our food in no time. Thank you Olivier for this recommendation - it was one to remember. Olivier also recommended we order breakfast from Camille & Pascal (which was FANTASTIC!!!) and get in home massages (ALSO PHENOMENAL!!)

In regards to the home - it far exceeds any high expectations you get from the pictures. From the king size beds in the bedroom, to the unbelievable pool that we used every morning -- this house had it all. It's also equipped with more air conditioners and ceiling fans than you know what to do with ! On another note - the kitchen had everything you could need; spices, tableware, Tupperware, you name it- it had it.

Oh! I almost forgot, the maid! what an angel - some days she was there for 3-4 hours and I'm telling you it was spotless. She was an absolute gem!!

The experience overall was one I will not forget - Olivier made sure to say good bye to us before we left and I honestly cannot thank him enough for such a great home and for being such a great host - I would recommend this home to anyone, honestly.. it really is on a level of it's own.

Perfect home for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Villa St Barth I was in shock. The home was even more beautiful than the pictures. For our week stay I couldn't have imagined a more perfect setting. As a family of 5 it was large enough that we each had personal space with three bedrooms each with en suite bathroom. I loved the fact that one bedroom was upstairs. The house is incredibly clean (thanks to a wonderful housekeeper that came every morning).

On our first morning my husband and son took their cameras to photograph the butterflies, birds and monkeys on the property. I loved waking up every morning to the animal sounds.

The highlights:

The pool: every morning and evening we would swim laps. The water temperature was perfect - so warm and yet refreshing after a day at the beach or touring guanacaste. The kids loved to play catch with the ball. And the pool guy made sure the pool was always clean.

The setting: lush trees and the most beautiful flowers. We felt like we were incredibly secluded despite being right off a main road.

The chef: Olivier had suggested Frank from Belly Fedbetter. The food was delicious and the presentation was incredible. I asked my husband to photograph every dish! He taught my younger daughter how to cook some dishes and was so accommodating with dietary restrictions and pickiness of my younger son. We had him come 4 of the 7 nights and it was a real treat for everyone in the family. His food was better than the top restaurants in Tamarindo. We even started naming dishes after him. He is also the nicest guy and we all enjoyed having him with us.

The location is convenient to most things. It is about 10 minutes to Tamarindo beach and close to other beaches as well. We went to gauchipelin for the day of adventure, black stallion for more zip lining and monkey walk, surfing in Tamarindo, sailing lessons at Costa Rica sailing center, chocolate making in portrero, kayaking in the estuary. Every activity was a hit with the adults and kids! We can't wait to come back.
