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...

We fell in love with Villa Kanda!
Our family of 5 recently stayed at Villa Kanda for 8 nights over Christmas holiday. We were challenged by the steep road getting into the property but with 4 wheel drive we managed just fine. Just make sure you have 4 wheel drive vehicle. The Villa is in a gated community and felt very safe.
We came from Liberia Airport (about 1 hr drive from airport - not bad) and Caroline recommended several grocery store options so we were able to pick up our essentials and fill the fridge upon arrival. Our first evening, Caroline organized a fabulous chef to come to the Villa to make dinner for us. Francesco and his asst. were just terrific and the food was delicious. We loved just relaxing at the Villa and we booked Francesco for our last 2 evenings so we could enjoy the serenity at the Villa. The setting is very special. We would go off each day and loved returning back to our Villa to relax by the pool. I cannot say enough about Caroline, the Property manager. I feel like we made a friend there. She was so generous to suggest activities, to book for us, she is a massage therapist and I had a really incredible massage by the pool. My daughter because sick and she went out of her way to help us get health care. I cannot say enough about her assistance. The Villa itself met our high expectations in every way! It is so lovely. We were thrilled with our choice to stay at Villa Kanda and would stay again. There are 2 staff - a lovely couple who are spanish speaking and they are very discreet and do a beautiful job of keeping the house/pool picked up and clean and laundry done and you barely know they are there. I highly recommend Villa Kanda - if you are spending time in Tamarindo it is very wonderful to come to the tranquility of Kanda afterwards. Many thanks for a most amazing stay.
What a hidden gem....away from the hustle of the town, but close enough to venture in everyday. The house is immaculate and well appointed. Yamileth (housekeeper) and her husband (Wilder) are both discreet and friendly. Extra touches like fresh squeezed orange juice or coconuts cut from the tree made it just a bit more special. Both made sure nothing was amiss during our stay and we miss seeing them every morning as we took our places by the pool! We can't say enough about the superior service of the house manager, Caroline. Not only did she ensure every detail was perfect, but she was super helpful leading up to our visit. She arranged for a chef for us, who was nothing short of phenomenal. We booked him for our first night and had him back 3 more nights because his food was so delicious. Plus, he is really friendly and we loved his company. Francisco owns a bakery in town, Masa Madre, that we also visited most mornings for fresh baked croissants and vegan banana bread, which we are still craving. To top it off, Caroline is one of the best masseuses in town. She and her sister came to the house twice for massages and as someone who gets a lot of massages, these two rank at the top of the list! The home is lovely. We loved the indoor/outdoor living space and spent a good portion of time in the pool. The house is well cared for and the furnishings are beautiful. Town is a short drive away, just past a few ranches with cows and horses. No shortage of things to do in the area. Had some fantastic meals, drove to a few nearby beaches and sipped cocktails overlooking the ocean every night. All in all, we would highly recommend this property. The care and concern demonstrated by Caroline and her staff cannot be overstated. Thank you for a wonderful 8 days!
Just finished our stay at Villa Kanda this past week, and of the all of the VRBO properties we have stayed at in Costa Rica over the last 4 years, this one, by far and away, is the absolute best, and believe me, we have stayed at some nice ones. Although outside of Tamarindo by 15 minutes or so, this house will take your breath away once you walk in the front door, as the accomodations have everything you will possibly need. The day and evening views of the surrounding landscape, as you sit under the outdoor canopy by the pool, with make you think you really are in heaven, as it is absolutely gorgeous..I can tell you, as a frequent traveller to Costa Rica, do not hesitate to rent this house for you and your guests, as you would be hard pressed to find anything better. That said, you will need a 4 wheel drive to access this "Casa", as it is up a steep hill, but do not let that hinder your decision, as it is worth the drive. Also, the local Tamarindo airport is close by, so it makes your stay easier, if you fly in from San Jose or Liberia, and all of the rental car agencies are very close to the airport.
As for the grounds of the house, the housekeeper and her husband, who take care of the pool and grounds, are very discreet while working and keep the house in spotless condition, and the property manager, Caroline LeMarie, is always available to help you with any questions or concerns you may have about the house or activities to do in the area.
As I now face another round of snow back in the northeast, I can truly say, I wish we were back there right now...So, if your looking in the Tamarindo area, there is no question, this is the place you need to stay... No hesitation... just do it, and take my word, you will not regret it!!!
Thanks Caroline for a great stay and all our best!!!
Steve & Karen : )
Dear Karen and Steve,
Thank you for your great review on the property. Thank you also for exploring our area trying to get off the beaten pathes and for your instructing feed back on that. It was a pleasure to receive you at the Villa and we sincerely hope to see you again sometimes. All the best!
A spectacular week at this heavenly villa
My husband and I and our two kids (ages 15 and 11) stayed at Villa Kanda in mid-February for 7 nights. We have been back for well over a month, and I am still day-dreaming of this incredible villa and the wonderful time we had there. Caroline was fantastic to work with. She was extremely responsive and helpful when we were planning and making arrangements and was always accessible when we needed her. Caroline communicated with our car rental company (Adobe, which I highly recommend) when our flight to Miami was delayed, causing us to miss our connection to Liberia. On another occasion when we had a problem with the key to the Villa, she and her husband came right over on a Saturday night to give us another key and fix the lock.
The Villa was stunning and extremely comfortable. We spent hours lounging outside by the pool in what is essentially an outdoor living room. Every evening we watched the sunset over the ocean in the distance, and at night we went out onto the terrace off the second floor bedrooms to star-gaze. Although you are only 15 minutes to Tamarindo, you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere with complete peace and solitude.
The beautiful kitchen is stocked with everything that you could ever need and we ate dinner in most nights.
Some of our favorite things we did during our stay: Lunch at Lola’s and then surfing lessons at Playa Avenellas; zip lining and enjoying the barbecue dinner at Black Stallion Ranch; lunch, hiking and enjoying the thermal hot springs at Rio Perdido.
A truly fantastic stay!!
Perfect home for your stay!
This is an absolutely beautiful home. Caroline was very easy to deal with and got back to me promptly. The views from everywhere on the property are stunning. The house is exactly as pictured and has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped and it was nice cooking dinner while watching the sunset over the mountains. We had the chef come in and cook dinner our first night, fantastic food with a lot of choices. Yamilith (housekeeper) was unobtrusive and very sweet. She made freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning which was wonderful. A four wheel drive vehicle is absolutely a must, we had no issue finding the property. There are supermarkets close by and beautiful beaches are only 15 minutes away. We will be booking this property again!!
Serene and majestic
We had a magnificent time. The place was amazing. We spent our days either lounging by the pool or off on an adventure and our evenings enjoying magnificent sunsets and a very well-equipped kitchen to cook in.
There is a wide variety of nice beaches all around within 15 min driving. We have quality restaurants, supermarkets, health service, etc, easily accessible. Plenty of nearby tours and activities are available like surfing, paddle board, estuary tour, volcano tour, ATV, zip-lining, horse back riding, turtle nesting, etc. Home service like Chef or massage is also available upon request.
