About the property

Large Estate Home Is Perfect For Families, Weddings, Events & Couples Getaways!

This is a home built for luxury and fun at the beach! The 6 bedroom home features TWO oceanfront master suites, TWO additional large king suites and two guest suites both with double queen beds! All bedrooms have en-suite baths and no detail was overlooked! TV's in every room, high end beds/linens, luxury decor and more.

The living area features a huge gourmet kitchen, large areas for entertaining, 14 person dining table, amazing infinity edge pool, copious outdoor spaces and "on beach" access to both Tamarindo and Langosta beaches. Stroll down the beach to one of the local beachfront bars or perch on your own chair overlooking it all...

The home sits in a private/gated community with paved road access and security. Situated on a bluff overlooking the gorgeous Bahia Tamarindo (Tamarindo Bay), the views are magnificent and your access to the beach is a 1 minute stroll down our private path to the best part of Tamarindo beach. A two minute walk down the other private path puts you onto either directly onto Playa Langosta's white sands or the adjacent point/headland with stunning views!

On the ocean side of the home you'll find plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your corner of paradise...outdoor dining, bocce ball, a custom "corn-hole" setup, hammocks and comfy chairs let you take it all in right outside your home. The home's slight elevation allows for commanding views of the beach and bay while also giving guests natural privacy from the few folks who do choose to walk down towards this part of the beach/bay.

Town is a short walk (10-12 minutes on the beach) or a three minute drive, providing easy access to all of the shopping, restaurants and nightlife that "Tama-Town" affords...while the closer/quieter Playa Langosta plays host to a number of excellent dining options as well!

The home was designed for large groups to feel at home with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy their time in paradise.

Amazing! Couldn’t have been a more perfect place for our wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our small, intimate wedding at Casa Islita and it was above and beyond what we expected. Andrea, the concierge was so helpful. The house is incredible, it is spacious and very up to date and had everything we needed to make the weekend perfect. All of our guests were thrilled. The beach location is absolutely picturesque, we have beautiful photos and memories and wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Perfect Beach Wedding Venue and House for Luxury Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The reason: When my husband and I were thinking of places to get married, we could think of no other place than Costa Rica. Our wedding planners recommended Casa Islita for the wedding and reception since our final headcount was 74 and Casa Islita was the only house in Playa Langosta that could handle this amount of people. I am so happy they recommended this location as it was absolutely perfect for what we were looking to do.

The house: Located in a gated community across from Walter’s Fish and Cheese, the location of the house is private. Andrea, the concierge, greeted us with such great energy and opened the door to paradise! You walk into the house and you are immediately gifted with a peekaboo view of the pool and ocean. All of my immediate family members stayed in the house with us (1 family of 4 and 5 couples of 2) and the layout of the house was perfect (we are a close family, but everyone needs their space sometimes). The indoor furniture was so comfortable, and the interior design was on point and well thought out. We would have family meals at the large table in the dining space and we were able to play music over the Sonos sound system. Breakfast every morning was fantastic (gallo pinto, eggs, cheese, plantain, and fruits).

Outdoor space: The kids loved the infinity pool and the adults loved laying out in the sun. There are great places for both sun and shade relaxation. We used the outdoor grill multiple times to cook. My only recommendation would be to get a golf cart or car if you plan on getting a lot of groceries as the closest small grocery is about a 20 minute walk and the larger grocery store is near the estuary (Automercado). Heiner and Sadie were wonderful and help make the house look and work perfectly.

The view: The house is a little higher on a bluff and it overlooks Tamarindo Bay. I loved that you could see the Pacific Ocean, all the boats in Tamarindo Bay, and the rugged landscape across the bay.

The beach: You can walk down a well defined path to the beach and walk all the way into Tamarindo (1.5 miles to the estuary). We would bring our surfboards down the path and we found there is some pretty good surfing for beginners near the beach of Hotel Capitan Suizo (about 5 minute walk).

The event: The wedding was incredible. We were able to seat 74, a dance floor, a buffet, a bar, and a DJ. Our guests and family thought this was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and I think Casa Islita is partly to credit.

Great House

  • 4 of 5

The house is great and as advertised. Wonderful views of bay, but no sunset view. Staff was outstanding. Andrea very responsive and helpful.

Magical, luxurious & comfortable home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Tamarindo with 15 people, 4 different families. Everyone's expectations were far exceeded. The home is much better than the pictures provided. A rarity in hospitality business. The staff was just as remarkable. Brian was a great communicator and his concierge Andrea was hands down the best planner with whom I've worked. Great contacts and ability to exceed expectations of discerning clients.

Wonderful place to gather as a family with enough space to get away!

  • 5 of 5

Ryan and I went to Costa Rica for our wedding, and we chose Casa islita to hold our small family and friends wedding. The staff Greta, Maria and Heynard were wonderful, fulfilling all of our needs. We filled every room with family and friends. Even with a full house there was plenty of room to spread out. The pool is so refreshing, the only downside is we would've love a hot jacuzzi tub, vs a cold one. There were plenty of towels at the house for pool and bathroom.The backyard is a lot larger than it looks in the photos, but is owned by Costa Rica, which makes it public ground. No one used it while we were there but they could. In fact someone was camping right on the beach in front of the house. The house is ocean front, not beach front, you need to walk down a path to get to the beach. The sunset isn't directly in front of the house, it sets over to the right behind trees, can not be seen from the house bayckyard. Town is a 5-10 minute walk north on the beach, or recommend to use a car. We used our cars daily. The house is located in a gated community and the area is safe. Lots of great restaurants in Tamarindo!!! The town is very westernized. We took a private catamaran trip, on the blue marlin, I highly recommend them! Honestly, I would stay again. We fell in love with the place and now that Ryan and I have such special memories there, we will definitely be back.
