TOTALLY INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5
This is a palace.!! We were blown away when we opened the door and walked in. As beautiful as the photos are, they don’t do this place justice. It is truly a house of “light” and a house of”views”. Whichever room you are in you can see the beautiful landscaping, the beach, the ocean waters and the incredible sunsets. The house is an architectural masterpiece of stone and glass. The master suite is amazing and has its own balcony with stunning views. All 5 bedrooms are large with king size beds, ensuite bathrooms and luxurious bedding’/linens. This wonderful home is located on a street that the locals call, “Millionaires’ Row”.
Even though the home is palatial and it makes you feel like royalty, it is also very comfortable and relaxing. There is an ambiance of relaxation that permeates every room in the house.
There are both covered and uncovered patio areas with very comfortable patio furniture. The infinity pool is gorgeous and is a perfect size for both playing and swimming laps. We really appreciated the flat screen TVs, Wi-Fi, Viking appliances and huge kitchen.
The full time staff is an added bonus. Iris, who does housekeeping, laundry, dishes, etc. on a daily basis is a sweetheart. She kept the place spotless. There are also full time groundskeepers who keep the grounds looking beautiful. I understand that you can also make arrangements for a chef, but we didn’t do that. There is also a nice office, if you “have to work”.I chose to not carry my cell phone or wear my watch while we were there. What a feeling of freedom!
The ocean water was like bath water. Way different than our “blue-lips” experiences in So Calif and other places. The small town of Tamarindo has many good places to eat. We loved having pizza at La Baula (great setting and great pizza). The burgers at Longosta Beach Club are the best.
There is a very nice (quite new) grocery store nearby called Auto Mercado where you can get anything you need. My wife was quick to notice several “boutique” shopping opportunities also. Tamarindo is an amazing area. I think it may be the best tourist area in Costa Rica. It has a small airport with daily flights to and from San Jose for about $89. This is much cheaper and faster than driving.
In summary, our time at Villa Marrakech was wonderful in every way. The only downside I can think of is that we couldn’t stay longer.

Paradise

This was my first trip to Costa Rica, and I am ready to move there. Villa Marrakech is a little slice of heaven right in Central America. The house itself (if you can even call it a house, it certainly shows up all the houses I've ever lived in) is amazing. Tile floors and vaulted ceilings. Beautiful landscaping. You can see the beach from the house, and the house in fact does back up onto the beach. The pool is pristine, not too deep, not too shallow. The water is warm, but not hot. The kitchen is amazing. Fully equipped kitchen, pans, flatware, dishes, blender, toaster, coffee maker, and some unusual appliances, sandwich maker and juicer. The room I stayed in had a king bed and walk in closet. The linens were high quality. The staff is amazing. Tamarindo is a great town. Lots of things to do. There are places in town where you can try the local cuisine, or stick with more American fare. I highly recommend trying native Tico food. I can't wait to go back.

Perfect in every possible way!

Three friends and I just returned from an amazing trip to Costa Rica! The country is stunning but Villa Marrakech was the highlight of our trip! The house is beautiful and comfortable. It was everything we had hoped for and more! The private infinity pool was amazing and we enjoyed lounging and sun-bathing in it everyday! I loved the easy beach access and I especially loved taking walks along the beach in the mornings and evenings. The staff at Villa Marrakech was so accommodating and sincere! We loved getting to know them!

Each bedroom has a walk-in closet, a private bathroom and comfortable king sized beds. The kitchen is huge and is stocked with pots and pans and everything you need to cook for a large group. The house has many "gathering places" with lots of seating where we comfortable sat and talked.

We visited two great beaches that were within walking distance from Villa Marrakech. Families with children will enjoy the calmer waves of Playa Tamarindo, while Rivermouth is known for great surfing and the waves were fun for us to boogie board.

If you are considering a trip to Costa Rica! This is the place to stay! Pura Vida!!

Paradise at your footsteps!

The estate is very spacious, the beach is steps from the pool, literally in the backyard. The house is very welcoming, the kitchen is quite large, many bar stools to gather and socialize at, even had a barbeque that we used. The bedrooms are large, plenty of space to spread out. The town is minutes away, was so easy to run to the local market for fresh groceries. Most natives speak English was easy to get around town. Many attractions near by. The staff was very friendly always had fresh cleaned towels in the morning. Would definitely stay again without hesitation!

Absolutely magical!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a week at Villa Marrakech. I must say that I was speechless, from the first moment the front gates opened, and it only got better and better as we explored the house itself. The house was unbelievable, truly a piece of paradise! The pictures cannot prepare you for what this home entails. The ocean was literally just outside the back door, steps from the infinity pool, and you could hear the waves crashing at any given time. Morning walks on the beach are an absolute must.

I wish I could pick the highlight of my trip to share with the readers! We rented scooters, explored, and shopped the nearby streets of Tamarindo. My kids surfed each day, watched the monkeys, iguanas, and birds in the backyard, and spent endless days/nights swimming in the infinity pool. There are so many great restaurants within a mile of the property. We spent a day deep sea fishing which may have been my favorite. The staff (housekeeping, security, groundskeeper) were perfect! I cannot imagine returning to Costa Rica and not staying here again. Pura Vida!!

Location

From the Owner

As Andy and his family took their first trip to Costa Rica, they felt in love with the surroundings of Tamarindo, encountering Playa Langosta's hidden gem of the Pacific, Villa Marrakech, a house so beautiful and unique among the beach front properties of this private corridor of secluded houses washed by the closeness of the pounding waves. The unique and sophisticated feeling of the Villa Marrakech, combined with the architectural details that make out of this property a complete experience, charmed Andy and his family into what has become a recurrent wealth of feelings and emotions that entail the whole Villa Marrakech experience.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : 5 minutes from Tamarindo's airport at 5 Miles Nearest Barpub : The town of Tamarindo offer a wide range of option at 2 Miles Nearest Golf : Hacienda Pinilla is next to Playa Langosta at 25 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The town of Tamarindo offer a wide range of option at 2 Miles Car: recommended

Lying on the Pacific Northwest Coast, just south of Tamarindo, one of the most popular destinations on the North Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, is the exotic and sandy beach of Playa Langosta. Known for its amazing surfing and gorgeous beachfront. Playa Langosta is ideal for those who want to have some fun while enjoying the stunning beauty of the area. A mostly rocky shoreline with small pockets of sandy beach.

A great beach for a quiet stroll, Playa Langosta at its southern end sits near the mouth of an estuary and has an excellent surf break here. Also close to the Las Baulas National Park, come here between October and March to catch a glimpse of the leatherback turtles that nest in the area.
