We were a party of 10 and having vacationed many times in Tamarindo we decided to change things up a rented this beautiful home for the week.
From 325 feet above sea level the views are simply incredible! The home is well appointed with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. Super comfortable beds and linens-soaps & shampoos. The home is kept impeccably clean by Ingrid who also makes a yummy breakfast every morning. There are safes in all the rooms of this gated property and for extra security there is a night watchman. It was amazing spending time with friends and family on the terrace overlooking the shimmering Pacific.
We'll be back next year!
The house was absolutely beautiful and the views from outside patio were stunning!! Our maid was so wonderful and breakfast was fantastic! This is a great house to go with a group of friends!! Wonderful memories were made this week!!
Villa Paraiso is a jewel in the Blue Water Properties. It was even more beautiful than the photos/video. We hosted our 2 daughters and their husbands. It was a memory for a lifetime for all of us! Chef Kattya of ALKA Services was beyond expectations. She is a delight, and her food and presentation were exceptional. We wanted to take her home! We had 2 masseuse come for a 75 minute massage with coconut oil from Coco Beauty Spa. Ingrid and Adrianna, from the spa, were excellent. We brought some local currency (colones) with us, but wouldn't do it again. American dollars are readily accepted. The town is certainly within walking distance, but the climb up the unpaved road to Villa Paraiso is rather challenging. After doing it once, we hired taxis when needed. None of us wanted to drive. Transportation was convenient and not expensive. If taking any tours or needing airport transportation, Blue Water Adventures can easily arrange it.
Awesome views, comfortable place, and the pool was a knockout!! Bluewater properties is the go to place to get you everything you need!
You gotta get to Costa Rica!
My friend and I started planning our 50th birthday trip to Costa Rica a year ahead of the scheduled trip.It was important for each bedroom to have their own private bath, we wanted a pool and close to the beach and nightlife.We discovered Villa Paraiso was the perfect place for our group of 12!From the initial contact to the last, Rebecca was professional, helpful and responsive to our needs.As the gates opened to VP, the stunning view of the villa was unveiled! We were greeted by Allan, our concierge, who was MORE than helpful planning and scheduling all excursions.The villa was exceptionally clean and ready for our arrival.Ingrid, housekeeper and cook was terrific, and we felt safe at night with Lionel keeping watch.We booked private chef, Kattya Campos, for a breakfast, several meals & impromptu wedding-they did NOT disappoint! From the preparation to the presentation, we enjoyed each meal.We would not think twice about booking with Blue Water Properties again.
We booked this house to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday with 12 other family members and I can't say enough about how amazing our whole experience was from the time I first reached out to the property managers to inquire about the house until the day we left Costa Rica. We booked this trip a year out and you would've thought it for a trip in the The entire staff was so professional, nice and EXTREMELY helpful! The guy that was our concierge, Marcelo, answered any and all my questions swiftly and in GREAT detail. He often answered the question I asked and even the one that I hadn't even thought about yet....HE WAS THE BEST!!! Upon arrival, at the house, we were greeted by several members of the staff and we were giving a tour of the beautiful, breathtaking house! The property managers even went above and beyond to arrange last minute transportation for 2 members in our party that flew into the wrong airport. They swiftly went into action and had them picked up and on their way to house within 30 mins of being notified.....AWESOME! The cook/housekeeper, Ingrid, was great! She always had a smile on her face and made us a delicious breakfast every morning. She kept the house immaculate and was just all around pleasant! The grounds guy, I nicknamed smiley, cause he literally always had a smile on his face. He always made sure he came to speak to us when he came in and before he left for the evening. He was also, VERY prompt with attending to any concerns we had about the operation of things in/around the property. There's really not a bad thing I can say about this house, staff or property managers. Unless I talk about the wood slave lizards that come out at night or the HUGE, rocky, muddy when wet, half paved mountain that you have to walk up and down if you don't have a car or get a cab...LOL!! But, those are only issues if you're afraid of lizards, as I am, or afraid of working out, which I'm not :) I HIGHLY recommend this house and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!! We had the BEST time!
We were BLOWN AWAY by Villa Paraiso!! My group of 8 had the most amazing experience. From the moment the gates open to this mansion you are in heaven. This home is perfect for a group or for couples. Every bedroom has it's own private bathroom and these are large, nice bathrooms that you would find in a luxury hotel. Four of the bedrooms enter from their own porch with views and the gardens and water features close by. There are four other bedrooms in the main part of the house including the Master oasis which is truly stunning. This bedroom has 180 degree views that are amazing to wake up to. The outside area was our favorite. The outdoor living room leading to the infinity pool are truly spectacular. We sat out there every morning and watched the sun come up and there was a rainbow 2 mornings. In the evenings the sunset was out of this world. The pool was perfect. I could go on and on about our experience at the home. Marcelo, with Blue Water Properties assisted in my booking and planning and even came to the home a couple times to check on us. I highly recommend not only the home, but also the activity planning and concierge services that their company provides. We had dinner prepared at the house through them and Marcela was great. She prepared the tuna that the guys caught on their fishing trip that morning and it was really good. Ingrid provided our breakfast each morning and was so sweet and such a pleasure. We also did a combo tour on arrival day booked through them. JR was our guide and he was SO much fun. Miguel was our driver and we loved him. He even made SURE we got to see monkeys on our trip back to the airport. We did the zipline, white water kayaking, and hot springs at Rincon de la Vieja and it was the highlight of our trip. We are still laughing at our experiences. I thought it would take my group to the end of our stay to realize the true meaning of PURA VIDA but the service provided even on that first day had them catching on quickly. The people provided to us by Blue Water were just top knotch. We really enjoyed hanging out at the beach near the Witch's Rock Surf Camp below the house and the boogie boarding was amazing there. We had lunch there twice overlooking the beach and it was great food. One evening we walked around in Tamarindo and that was also fun. WHEN we return, I'll want to stay at Villa Paraiso and make sure that I deal with the same people again. Don't hesitate, I've traveled the world and I can truly say this is an experience of a lifetime. Our only regret was not staying longer!!
