Beyond Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Oliver was at the house when we got there gave a quick tour had dinner waiting for us and was full of recommendations. The pictures of the house don't do it justice. Andrea was so amazing and kind we loved seeing her every morning.We will be back again.

Unforgettable Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by telling you that Olivier is an absolutely amazing host,

he knows how to make guests feel comfortable and at home. Very accommodating man with a great attention to details. If anything went wrong/was out of order, with just one SMS Olivier was able to solve our concerns within 10 minutes. Olivier went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Our only concern was poor internet connection; we believe Olivier tried his best to solve the problem, but unfortunately with very little success.

Villa Saint Barth is absolutely stunning. It`s a modern, open concept villa and represents exactly the pictures you see on the website, which we all know is not always the case. It`s a perfect hideaway from the busy Tamarindo town, yet a very short drive to everything you need. Villa is very comfortable for a romantic getaway and is absolutely perfect for family vacation.

Andrea who was our cleaning lady is a `living angel on earth` - I wish we could take her home with us :). I can't say enough good things about her: kind, giving, generous, helpful, always cheerful like a sunshine, amazing in

ALL home care duties (cleaning, washing, ironing, folding +++).

Both Olivier and Andrea set 'the bar' high for any other home owner in the Tamarindo area who rents their house as a holiday villa/apartment. Thank you to you both for spoiling us with your warm care and attention!!!

Beautiful house, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

15-20 minutes outside the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo, Villa St Barth is it's own private sanctuary. The home is modern, light and airy with sliding glass doors throughout and kept spotlessly clean by the wonderful Andrea. Olivier is a welcoming host eager to please.

Our family of five ate many meals at home and took advantage of the wonderful BBQ grill and porch dining. The gorgeous infinity pool was enjoyed by the kids and we had zero issues with mosquitoes. The valley views are truly breathtaking.

Our family took surfing lessons in Tamarindo, spent the day at the secluded Playa Avellana, and chartered a boat in Playa Flamingo- all easily accessible from Villa St. Barth (as with most places in Costa Rica, a four wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended). There is a well appointed grocery store in Tamarindo (Auto Mercado) to stock up on food supplies.

All and all a five star experience. We would gladly stay here again!

Don't stay anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

A little late submitting but our experience was so phenomenal I just had to. This property completely exceeded our expectations. It's beautiful and clean. Olivier is absolutely amazing and so helpful. I lost my luggage during the trip. Olivier brought over clothes, and facilitated finding my luggage at the airport. It is conveniently located, although you will absolutely need to rent a car. I hope to return to Villa St. Barth soon.

Stunning Villa- a dream vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a luxurious home, beautifully furnished and comfortable in every aspect , you will have found it here.

Villa St. Barth is stunning. The property is extremely private, yet close enough to Tamarindo and Playa Avellana. The garden and pool are pristine.

Olivier is accommodating in every way and always just a phone call or email away.

The house is kept so clean, you could literally eat off the floor. Andrea, the house keeper came to clean every day, change the bedsheets and bring fresh towels.

She even did our laundry and left it all folded beautifully.

The service is unbelievable and I would stay here again over any 5 star hotel!

I cannot say enough about the quality of the property and how nice it is. I would never want to say anywhere else in this area of Costa Rica.

By far one of the best I have enjoyed around the globe.

Family friendly, stunning and relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa St. Barth was perfect. We visited Costa Rica in March and our party included 2 adults and 2 kids (8 and 6 years old). The home is beautiful and very private which is perfect for the kids to run around and make lots of noise. Olivier, the property manager, was so friendly and helpful and the daily cleaning was one of the best we've seen. The house is very close to Tamarindo and to local groceries. I look forward to a future visit to Costa Rica and Villa St. Barth.
