Guestbook comments from the manager

Our host Enrique arranged for our airport pick up and his wife Natalie met us personally upon arrival welcoming us warmly and orienting us to the area. The accommodations were exactly as represented and quite spectacular with beautiful views of the beaches below. We loved the pool and the layout of the rooms and baths. The caretaker was exceptional and assisted us with grocery shopping, BBQ and fresh fish as well as help with practicing our Spanish. We loved the access to beaches, restaurants and activities with the privacy of the house though the drive up the unpaved roads was quite bumpy. As this was our first experience in Costa Rica it made a great impression and we would certainly look forward to returning to this lovely home.

excellent location

  • 5 of 5
I went there last year on january with my family and some friends. I had a great time, Cecilia (owner) was great, thank you so much, we had a wonderful vacation. Thank Sonia and his husband for their kindness and help.

the only dislike were the lack of some accomodities like no A/C, no internet access, and no TV. Other than that if you're in the mood, like we were, of being with the natural environment, adventure and enjoying without this services you'll have the best trip ever.

Even if we didn't had A/C, by being at the top of the tamarindo hill you get a cool breeze. And at Tamarindo center you can find the "internet cafe's" that we were missing at the beginning.

The gravel road to get to the house was a little messy but for us part of the adventure. It really wasn't comparable with the location of the house and the kindness of the people. I definitely recommend the place to everyone who reads this, the price payed doesn't show a bit of what we got.

This was a wonderful place to stay in Tamarindo. The owners/manager went out of their way to make sure our stay was a memorable one. The manager took us to the Auto Mercado when we arrived to ensure we had supplies needed i.e. water ect. Our stay was wonderful, I can not wait to visit again. I would highly recommend this Villa to all my friends.

The house has internet access, air conditioning in each bedroom, a large TV in the living room, full kitchen with dishes, and a view to die for. We stayed one week, relaxation was what we were looking for, and we were not disappointed. The house is located on the hill top away from the all the noise, just sit outside, relax, and listen to nature. Peace and Quiet!!! The house was well maintained and very clean.

There is a large pool just outside the living area, and a large deck to relax on, have a drink and watch the amazing sunsets. The pool is well maintained and sparking clear. The living are has large windows and doors when opened you get a soothing tropical breeze flowing through out the house. If night life and surfing is your cup of tea then head down the hill to the town of Tamarindo, they have both, and it is just minutes away. They have some amazing places to eat just steps away from the beach.

Perfect Stay

  • of 5
We had a great time in Tamarindo and really enjoyed the time spent in this house (Villa Artemis). The views are spectacular from both inside and outside the house. All bedrooms have A/C, but during the day you can just open the house up to allow the breeze to flow through. We had no mosquitoes while at this house.
We did not rent a car. Getting up and down the hill on foot should only be attempted in the morning or the evening (due to the heat). Otherwise we were able to find cabs for around $5 up and $5 down. We usually did that twice a day (so $20/ day for cabs). Once you find a good cab keep his phone number so you will be able to call him up the hill. We used yellow cab "Frank" at phone number 8569-4698. If you don't speak Spanish let Max (the caretaker) call.
We cooked a few meals at the house and let the caretakers wife cook a delicious typical meal one night. WiFi was very good , but only accessible in the kitchen/ family room and outside. I could also like to mention the tremendous job Natalie (the house manager pictured below) did during our stay. She speaks excellent English and she turned out to be our most important asset during our stay. Natalie got us settled in and checked up on us frequently. She told us the best places to eat, organized excellent discounted tours and surfing lessons, bought fresh fish for us and even gave me a special cream for my sunburn. Thank you Natalie!!
I also wanted to mention Max the caretaker. He kept the grounds and pool perfectly clean and was always around to lend a hand.
In closing the house is super great - just make sure to utilize Natalie to make your stay perfect. Jeff

Amazing place, great hosts

  • 5 of 5
The place was truly amazing and the hosts were so welcoming. The house was big for a party of Springbreakers (the more responsible graduate students type) and we really enjoyed home cooked meals and the relaxing getaway. This place is up the hill so while it's a walk from the beach, the view is awesome.

Higly recommended.

Totally Incredible!

  • 5 of 5
This house, and the surrounding area, is truly a dream come true. It was so relaxing to sit out on the porch by the pool at night and gaze down at the water. We felt so welcomed by the locals! This is truly a "Pura Vida" Costa Rican experience. We highly recommend!

Wonderful house; new owners!

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from Tamarindo and our stay at Villa Artemis as a family of 11. I was nervous due to some of the prior reviews. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised at the recent changes and upgrades to the home. We were the first family to stay after the new owner took over. The upgrades were beautiful; the kitchen and den are nicely done with beautiful tile. The house was big enough for all of us to fit comfortably. The manager, Enrique, was forthcoming regarding the beds that had not been redone yet. Our stay was before this upgrade so yes the beds were hard but tolerable. They are upgrading the beds in the near future if not already. The location of the home cannot be beat in Tamarindo and the view is breathtaking. The service and attention to detail were superb. We had PLENTY of clean bath towels and pool towels; the house was very clean and kept immaculate by the home security guard/maintenance person, Olger. His quarters are to the side of the house and he is always there if you need him but otherwise completely unobtrusive and yet extremely friendly! We would leave all day and not lock the house or worry about anything inside. We had an amazing stay at Villa Artemis with plenty of room, a clean friendly atmorsphere, and the perfect vacation with superb view. I would recommend this home to anyone, especially those with children due to the bunk room! The upgrades were impressive and we plan to stay here again in two years upon our return!
