About Caroline LEMAIRE
I used to be a horse breeder in France. I like all kind of nature: sea, countryside, mountain... i grew up near Paris and my farm was in Normandy, few miles away from the D-Day beaches of WW2. I moved to Costa Rica for the sun and the Nature... but before everything for the people. I travelled more than 30 countries, and Costa Rica is really a place where i feel confortable, thanks to the welcoming of the Ticos...
Caroline LEMAIRE purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Caroline LEMAIRE chose Tamarindo
I was looking for a place to live and i fall in love with that house the first time i saw it... It s the perfect combination between confort and wild, between ocean and jungle... The view on the valley and on the ocean kept my breath for a long time when i first look at it. And this is stil what i do every morning when i get up... Looking the costarican nature while drinking my coffee...
What makes this Villa unique
The moment you will enter the house, you will be falling in love with it. Every little spot of the house is a place where you want to chill, or eat, or enjoy a drink or a coffee with an outstanding view on the surrounding nature... The 100square meters rancho is the most special spot of the house where you'll spend a lot of time. The pool right next to it, will allow you to enjoy swimming, or chit chat with your friends, and watch the vast sky and stars at night...

My family and friends had an amazing time here, we we close enough to everything, yet tucked away and secluded and super private. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Service and support from Caroline and Yamaleith was outstanding. Simply loved every minute of our vacation at this property.
Great Place for vacation
We had 4 days vacation with our friends, kids and our dog. The house is BEAUTIFUL!! and comfortable, the kitchen super well equipped, the swimming pool delicious. The maintenance personal prepared fresh orange juice for our breakfast. Private and peaceful place. Super recommended.
We had a wonderful vacation at Villa Kanda. It is such a beautifully designed home we felt pampered from the moment we walked in the front door. Caroline was very helpful at getting us settled when we arrived and also helped us set up excursions. It was also nice having help with the cleaning and laundry. We had an amazingly relaxing 9 days and hope someday to return.
Visiting from Idaho
We enjoyed our stay at the Villa Kanda. The property is located 15 minutes outside of Tamarindo on a rocky, bumpy dirt road high on a hill. A 4X4 is required to get to the house. Once there the house is secure with gates and has a beautiful view. We enjoyed the pool and having the kitchen open during waking hours. Make sure you take all necessary items like spices, coffee, oil, etc. Some things that could have been better was the upstairs patio could have used some furniture besides the 2 small chairs. The patio plants were in dire need of water and were dying. The shower heads were rain heads with little pressure which weren't our favorite but thats a personal preference. We had trouble sleeping with the noisy air conditioners again maybe just us. Overall Caroline the property manger was super friendly and a pleasure to work with. I would have given this property a 5 star but thought it needed some updating.
The property is fantastic!
We had a wonderful time. 3 couples lots of room. The kitchen is fully equipped beautiful outdoor space and pool. The staff is outstanding and the location is great.
We are still reminiscing about our stay at Villa Kanda. The spectacular sunsets were breath taking, even more beautiful than anticipated. As Caroline mentioned one absolutely needs a 4x4 vehicle to stay at this villa . As mentioned in the previous review the AC is very loud at bedtime. I would have preferred screens & a night time breeze. “Yemmy” our housekeeper was incredible! She made the best eggs & fruit displays ever! She discreetly kept the Villa spotless with a great big smile on her face. The groundskeeper, Wilder was also very attentive but never intruded. He helped us cut coconuts, assisted in changing our flat tire & one morning came to get us at the pool to see the monkeys out back. Caroline the property manager was incredible! She provided great info. related to markets & surrounding sights to see. Caroline arranged to have “Vivi” a yoga instructor visit one am. Vivi was perfect! She was so sweet & she was able to adjust her instruction to suit all of us. The highlight of our stay was chartering our private Sunset cruise with Manta Ray out of Playa Flamingo. If you’re looking to snorkel try Playa Conchal for a variety of colourful fish. We had the best lobster dinner at Pangas in Tamarindo. Our last evening was spent stargazing on the “pouf” chairs out back at Villa Kanda. The entire sky was lit up! Incredible memories!
