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.

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

I can spend all 2489 characters talking about Villa St Barth, about its location and its cleanliness, its functionality and comfort... but I will only say one thing: this is the place to stay at in Hacienda Pinilla. Just when you expect your vacation to be defined by the activities you do, this home takes it to another level. It becomes an integral part of the vacation, just like your zip lining, your morning run and the beach. It is close enough to the beach and to town to where in about 15 mins you're in the middle of the action in Tamarindo. Yet when you're home you are in a world of quietness surrounded by nature. This house has everything you need for modern day comfort. This house is everything the reviews describe it to be. But it's only when you're there that you really appreciate what they're talking about. Even though we had a 3 hour delay getting to the location, Olivier was there to greet us and show us around. He has such attention to details that he changed the dinning room table overnight because it had some cracks under the glass. Andrea came daily to do her magic in turning a house used by 6 adults including 4 young adults into the immaculately clean house we walked into when we first got there. She even did our laundry and folded it; extremely pleasant and always with a smile.

Well, what do you know, I did spend all 2489 characters talking about this house! why wouldn't I, for a week it quickly became our home, just like Olivier said when we asked if we should take our shoes off before walking in. "It's your home", he said, "you do what you like".

We will be back!

NB: It's tucked away and the entrance is shortly after the white fence on the left.

As Luxurious as the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

We( three couples) just spent two glorious weeks at Villa St Barth, it was by far the cleanest house we have ever rented.

The bedrooms were three equally beautiful rooms with lots of privacy for three couples.

The patio area with pool was perfect for our group, great BBQ area and we enjoyed the awesome outside furniture.

Our housekeeper Andrea was absolutely amazing, her attention to detail was impressive.

Olivier, our host, was prompt to deal with any problems we had and certainly exceeded our expectations.

Pamper yourself and visit Villa St Barth............
