The simple assumption guiding the architects was that residents of Tamarindo Preserve are there to embrace nature, rather than seal themselves off from it. Rooms look out on gardens, and conventional walls and windows are replaced by floor to ceiling panels that disappear to bring the outdoors inside. The uncompromising mandate is that all materials, all specifications, and all finishes must be authentic and of the highest quality.

To further enhance vacationers' luxury holiday experience they are also given the privilege of becoming a full member of the Tamarindo Preserve Langosta Beach club during their stay, including a fitness center and beachfront pool, bar and restaurant. Also available is a full concierge service, which can arrange airport pickup, car rental and tour reservations, baby sitting and other luxury services.

Casa Tranqilla

  • 5 of 5

Amazing, peaceful and well appointed Villa right on the Pacific Ocean, and within a short walk of the Beach Club and Tamarindo. Fantastic views from an expansive patio with stunning sunsets every night.

Concierge and housekeeping service is top notch. A most relaxing and tranquil experience.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Amazing villa! Right on the ocean, breathtaking views! Villa was gorgeous, with everything you need for your stay. Town was a short walk along the beach, with amazing seafood restaurants. Beautiful sunsets every night. Daniel took us on a tour around the area and showed us amazing sights and was so knowledgeable about Costa Rica. Rosa was a wonderful housekeeper. Fantastic time with wonderful friends!

Really desapointed

  • 1 of 5

Sure the villa is wonderful. The view, the beach, the pool... But, not secure...

A big wood furniture( 150-200 pounds) fell directly on my daughter... The furniture was in her room at the villa...doesn't fix in the wall... Result: completely right shoulder fracture ( humerus bone) head trauma, contusions, traumatic shock.... So the rest of our vacation was a disaster. We just wanted to go home and get greats treatments... We got no treatments at all in Costa Rica. The Docteur said everything is ok!!!! We send the X-ray and the medical report to the concierge When we got home and explain to him all the sequels for our daughter....

We ask for a free week to compense all the inconvenients, this is really reasonable...

We still waiting.... What's next?

See the email below

Hi concierge,

The furniture fell on her on February 17th. As you know she have a complete humerus fracture. ( the most big arm bone) She still at the moment immobilized and she can't return in normal activities for the next two months... We need to pay again RX and medical follow up.

Considering all the negatives effects on our life we ask you as you told us previously to reserve the villa in Costa Rica for the following dates:

January 2 to January 9 2017.

We offer to you to paid the maid.

I send you a part of Julia's medical chart...

We Hope Julia gone be OK soon and hope news from yourself quickly to tell her the good news about their next vacations in Costa Rica.

Owner's Response: We truly hope that your daughter has a full recovery from her accident. When the incident occurred, we offered to refund you $2500 of the funds from that stay. Our concierge came over to the house within minutes of the incident occurring and worked to contact a physician to provide medical care. We feel that $2500 was more than generous for an accident that we clearly feel was not our fault. It is not customary for a large armoire to be anchored to the wall and the armoire can barely be pulled off balance by a grown man. My own daughter has stayed in that same bedroom dozens of times and she is approximately the same age as your daughter. We have stayed in the home for many years and we have had hundreds of renters through the home and this is the first time anything like this has occurred. The home is very safe. We ask that our renters provide supervision to their children in and around the home. The only way the armoire will tip over is if your child was climbing up the armoire - something that we are clearly not in favor of anyone doing. According to your own statement, the two children were in the room alone unsupervised when the incident occurred. The child was obviously behaving in a manner that we would object to and they should not have been by climbing the armoire. We feel that our offer of $2500 refund from your stay was more than sufficient for an accident that was clearly not our fault. We do not appreciate a "shakedown" for an additional free week. We hope your child continues to heal but your family is not welcome to stay at this home or any of our homes in the future and I would recommend to other VRBO home owners to think twice before allowing this family to rent your home.

Casa Tranquila is Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 - including three kids aged 11, 8 and 8. We just got home from Casa Tranquila 2 nights ago and are still talking about what a great time we had. The house is gorgeous but meant to be "lived in". The pool is great - not too shallow or too deep. Kids who are not the strongest swimmers would be very comfortable in it with a floatie that you could easily bring along with you. We like to cook and eat in and found that the kitchen had everything we needed and Daniel made sure we got the groceries we wanted. We loved sitting on the back deck, watching the ocean (best sunsets ever!), enjoying the pool and listening to music! The house is on a beautiful beach and there are rocks but do not be scared away - they are manageable - you can find spots near the house along the beach to swim and play in the sand but the best stretch of beach is down at the Langosta Beach Club (a 5-10 minute walk) where the "membership" CT has is a terrific perk. We spent a few days there off and on, everyone was very welcoming, and the food (French inspired) is great. We all took surfing lessons there and almost all of us were successful! Daniel was a tremendous asset from the start (booking the house) to the finish of our visit (booking the driver to the airport to go home). His English is incredible and he is very friendly and helpful. We wanted to go zip-lining and he encouraged us to combine it with a "river" tour and some "white water river kayaking". Never in a million years would I believe I would say this but it has to be one of the best days we've ever had on vacation. Daniel drove us around, acted as our tour guide and the lunch we had after the river tour (a real Costa Rican lunch) was out of this world. Daniel also helped us get a chef to come in and cook us another "Costa Rican" meal for my birthday. If you are at CT, you absolutely need to have Hugo cook for you. He made a meal from which two days later we were still joyfully eating leftovers! Hugo is so good that if we came back I would have him cook for us multiple nights! He's a bargain with a smile. We also had the unflappable Rosa to help us. Nothing phases her. She's friendly and very nice. We tried to make sure we cleaned things up and did our own laundry - but Rosa took care of things if we missed something! Daniel, Hugo, and Rosa made our week in Tamarindo a week to remember. You will not regret renting this house or working with these wonderful people.

Owner's Response: Isn't Daniel the best? The home, the town, the food, the water - we fell in love with it many years ago and are glad that we could share our home with you. Please come back again.
