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.

*The neighborhood around Casa Tranquila is a growing neighborhood and there is often some construction going on but it rarely affects the residence. Most of it occurs behind the house and cannot be heard over the beautiful sound of the waves nor does it interfere with the gorgeous view of the ocean.

However, over the past few months, there has been construction on the lot next-door to Casa Tranquila. The neighborhood has strict rules on when certain types of construction can be done, particularly construction that is loud and could affect the happiness of the inhabitants of the residence. We were aware that this construction would be occurring and we lowered the rental price of the home last year in advance due to the potential inconvenience. It was our understanding, from numerous discussions with the builder, that the construction would be well completed previous to now.

Unfortunately, the contractor that is working on the neighboring project has continuously disregarded the rules and often starts very loud construction early in the morning. We have complained to the contractor and also to the homeowners association but without success. As a result, we have decided not to rent out the house for the remainder of the construction period, now expected to be through late August. We do not want to subject any of our renters to the potential noise.

Most renters who visit Casa Tranquila don't spend the day around the house. With so many fun activities like zip lining, white water rafting, jungle and river tours, hiking, horseback riding, visiting the beach, surfing, beach massages, and visiting the beach club keep our visitors days very full. The best part of the day at Casa Tranquila is sunset. There are not many sunsets across the globe that can beat the beauty of a Costa Rican Pacific sunset.

For those renters that have already booked, we are offering two options.

First, if you decide that you do not want to rent the house with the potential that construction noise may start as early as 7 AM, we will fully refund your payments to date and we will also try to assist in finding you an alternative location, or accommodating your reservation at another time after the construction is complete. Second, if you choose to continue with your reservation, we do not think that the construction will affect your stay much, if at all. However, since there is the potential of some construction noise, we are offering all currently scheduled renters 50% off for their rental time.

If you do decide to keep your reservation, our concierge Daniel will be on hand at all times to interact with the contractor and minimize any inconvenience.

We will welcome everyone back to Casa Tranquila in the near future. Thank you for your understanding.

Amazing house...Stay here

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Tranquila over Spring Break. We had 4 adults and 2 kids. When we arrived my wife said the house was even better than the pictures online. I agree. Daniel was very accommodating and offered to book any and all activities that we wanted to do. He had the house stocked with groceries we requested when we arrived. Rosa did a great job tidying up and keeping things clean each day. She even showed us how to use the coffee maker the first day. The view from the back patio was the best with a front row to see the amazing sunsets each night. It was so nice to be able to just walk down the path in the backyard to the beach. You can also walk on the beach 10 minutes to several restaurants or take an inexpensive taxi wherever you want. We enjoyed the Sonos player inside and outside the house. We all enjoyed the outdoor showers and pool as well. If you're looking to be pampered on vacation, don't hesitate booking here.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We shared the amazing Casa Tranquila with another family (4 adults and 3 kids 10-14) and had an awesome trip on our first journey to CR. Daniel was awesome, catered to our every need, planned day trips, arranged surf lessons, dinner tips, etc. Rosa was a gem and it was fun for the kids (and adults) to practice their Spanish for breakfast orders as she literally speaks zero english. Tamarindo is a cool surf town, fun and safe to walk around any time of day. Weather was to die for, beach club was great perk, and too many fun memories to recount. It's an easy trip from Liberia (never airport than I imagined) on U.S quality roads.

As several have mentioned the construction is a bummer, but hey, who wants to sleep through vacation anyways?! :) I'm sure it will be all wrapped up soon. We will be back!

Excellent... with one temporary drawback

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Tranquila. Rosa, the housekeeper, and Daniel, the "everything to everybody," were very helpful and personable. The home has a convenient layout for folks who like space and privacy, and togetherness when desired. The grounds are very well kept and the inner courtyard felt like a personal sanctuary with fountains, fauna and seating areas. The gated location on the beach was close to neighboring civilization, yet it felt like our own paradise while on property. The kitchen had more cooking equipment than we cared to use, and everything in the home was very well taken care of, thanks to Rosa. A favorite pastime was lounging in the pool watching the ocean waves and sunset. We loved all of the outdoor living space which made the home feel truly expansive. The howler monkeys, iguanas and raccoons outside the door were really entertaining. The only flaw to the otherwise perfect getaway was the construction on the homesite next door. It would have been nice to have a heads up before we got there that construction was underway. Sleeping past 7:00 a.m. or using the outdoor shower was difficult in one of the bedrooms, but we are not of the ilk to let something so minor spoil our time together. We would absolutely return to this beautiful home and recommend it highly to anyone wanting a slice of heaven in sunny Tamarindo!

Amazing house and service.

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing, even better than we expected from the pictures. We were a group of friends and the bedroom layout maximized each couple's privacy. That was an unexpected surprise. I'm not sure how we will ever vacation without Daniel or Rosa again. We had high expectations for Daniel based on the previous reviews and he did not disappoint. He is great. We highly recommend this house.
