Overview

About the property

When you're looking for an unforgettable vacation rental - look no further!

Imagine waking up to the sound of the ocean nearby, a bright azure sky and a warm golden sun, the curtains in window dancing in the tropical breeze. You’re in paradise.

Fully air-conditioned, Villa Tranquila offers three floors of all the comforts of home. On the first floor guests can enjoy the open plan living space including a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, dining room, and cozy living area with flat screen television; local hardwood details abound. Doors leading out the private pool, patio and grill areas expand the living space even further. On the second and third floors guests are treated to three large bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathrooms feature comfortable beds, fluffy pillows, soft linens, and plush towels. The third floor Master Suite offers amazing views and an attached sitting area with a queen sleeper sofa.

Located just across the street from the beach and a short walk/drive into Tamarindo, Villa Tranquila is perfectly situated: peace and quiet when you want it but not far from all the local happenings. Maybe you want to learn to surf. Take an excursion into the tributary to spot local wildlife or an exhilarating zipline course. Deep sea fishing, golf, snorkeling and more is right at your doorstep.

If you don’t feel like cooking Tamarindo boasts some of the best restaurants in Costa Rica, from fine dining to casual cafes. Of course you can always fire up the newly installed gas grill for those nights when you want to stay home.

Villa Tranquila is an exceptional home away from home that you’ll want to visit again and again.

About Duncan/Russ

We've owned another Villa in the Playa Langosta area and have loved it so much that we decided to acquire another property and found Courtyard Villas #8. We currently operate two hospitality businesses in our hometown in upstate New York, and understand the needs of today's traveler: local charm and comfortable accommodations with "all the comforts of home". Like most people, what drew us to Costa Rica is the friendliness of the people, the wide variety of things to do and see throughout the country and the "tico" lifestyle.

Duncan/Russ purchased this villa in 2017

Why Duncan/Russ chose Playa Langosta

So many aspects of the Villa resonated with us: the flow of the rooms, the blending of local materials with comfortable furnishings, the gorgeous kitchen, the stunning pool and - of course - the amazing location.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa has everything we would want were we renting a Villa in Playa Langosta: a gourmet kitchen with modern appliances, lots of space so guests enjoy time together or quiet time alone, and the pool is the largest in the Courtyard Villas complex.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family of five states at villa #8 for a week in February. The home was very well furnished and the pool was great for late day swims. We were very close to Playa Langosta and walked ac47061314oss to watch several sunsets. The wall to Tamarindo was difficult but we were able to catch a taxi for a quick trip whenever needed. So if you have young children you may want to took closer to Tamarindo. We had planned to eat dinner in but the grill was not working. The owner informed us he converted the gas to charcoal. With no lighter or instruction it was not safe to cook with. There was only maid service once during the week and it was helpful as the floors were becoming sandy and the pool full of leaves. I think having them more often would have made the stay easier. The unit is three floors an several times my youngest came down too quickly and almost fell on the smooth tile so I would caution those with younger kids.

Owner's Response: Hi Lora - thanks for your review and the information for future rentals. It is a bit of a long walk for young children, but there are usually taxis easily found. Our guests can always request extra maid service (at a fee) but most of our homeowners only have one or two times a week included in the rental price. We hope you come back in the future and stay with us again.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a very nice stay in Courtyard #8 Villa. The 3 bdr villa was excellent for our family of 5. It was well equipped with all amenities and the pool was very refreshing on the very hot days. Beach was an easy walk across the road and it was also a nice walk into Tamarindo. The RPM representation was excellent. They were very quick to respond to our needs and always very pleasant to speak with. They also booked some of our excursions. We would certainly recommend these Villas for any future travellers.

The house was beautiful and wonderfully located close to the beautiful Langosta beach and 15 minute walk to town. The private pool was perfect for lazy afternoons and the kitchen made it easy to cook meals when everyone was tired of eating out.

This was just as the photos stated. The location was great and the staff at the management company were extremely helpful. Any issue was dealt with quickly. The people maintaining the pool, gardens and housekeeping were lovely and a pleasure to meet. I would stay here again in a flash.
