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.

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!

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5
I have been in Guanacaste well over 20 times and the view from this house is most likely the best view in Tamarindo and any other beach in the area. The pool was great, always cold for the hot sun! The house has AC; I didn’t need it since there is always a nice breeze. The 2 housekeepers, Manuel and Sonia were great, Sonia cooked and kept the inside of the house clean for $25/day for 14 of us! A couple of things needed fixing and Manuel took care of them right away!
I loved the Mediterranean style of the house combined with the nature. I heard monkeys and saw some very pretty birds from the back deck. Finally, I enjoyed being 5 min away from the beach and a major town, but up high enough to not hear noises and stay in total relaxation.
The road is in good condition (It the dry season) but I recommend a small SUV or Pick up.
Overall, a great stay! Highly recommended!

Well beyond expectations! Incredible view!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently had the opportunity to stay at Villa Artemis. Even though we were technically in the off season, it was truly a magical place. We arrived quite late in the evening (10:30pm) and were greeted by Sonia and Manuel (the property managers). With a smile on their face they happily got fires going for us, put away groceries and generally made us feel very welcome.

The property itself is very private but only a 5 minute drive (if that) to the town of Tamarindo. Between the amazing view of the ocean, the wonderful food, the beautiful architecture (the pictures don't do it justice), daily assistance from Sonia and Manuel, we'd give this property more than 5 stars if we could.

Villa Artemis is great for both families or for a romantic vacation. If you're planning on going to this area of Costa Rica, do yourself a favor and visit this beautiful house in Tamarindo. You wont regret it.

Best View in Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5
13 of us spent Christmas here and we all enjoyed every minute of it. This being highest house in Tamarindo, it commands the best view of Tamarindo beach and Playa Grande. We could not get enough of watching the sunsets and star gazing every night from the wrap around patio. The pictures do not do it justice; it was much more than what we expected.
Everything worked great except the hot water, but that is to be expected since there were 4 showers running at the same time. No big deal; we just split up shower times when we got back from the beach and everyone had plenty of hot water.
We have been visiting Costa Rica for over 10 years and this is by far the best place we have ever stayed at. It is up the mountain so a car would be good to have if one is out of shape. My in-laws (60 years old) enjoyed walking down (10 - 15 minutes) in the mornings to the beach and taking a $3 - $4 cab ride back to the house (do not pay more!).
Manuel and Sonia are great on site caretakers. We kept the windows open with our computers, cell phones, and money left out in the open (a great relief not worrying about security). If you take Sonia to the supermarket, she will pick out ingredients and cook a fantastic meal for you.
