“Simply the Best House in Costa Rica!”
Reviewed 12 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This place has to be the best place in Costa Rica. It has one of the best views in the world. All the great beaches in Guanacaste are super close by. It's not cheap, but it is worth every penny for the experience. Unbelievable week! We will be back for sure since the whole family and all our friends loved it.

“Wedding Dreams”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My fiancée and I came here for our wedding with a large group. We were married on the beach by witches rock but had the reception at the house. 14 people stayed in the house and there was a total of 24 who stayed in Tamarindo. The home was the perfect backdrop for our wedding dreams to come true.

Rosa made the most amazing breakfast every morning. Miguel made sure we were completely taken care of. We wanted to take them both home with us.

The rooms were perfect for everyone and they made sure the rooms with twin beds were turned into king beds for us. The penthouse was beautiful and by far the best room we have ever stayed in. A perfect room for a bride to get ready in.

Fabien made dinner for the wedding night for a group of 24 people. He recommended someone to do our cake as well. The entire meal and cake were heavenly and beyond expectations. We enjoyed dinner so much, we asked Fabien to come back for our last night at the house for a smaller group of 9.

Everyone who stayed in the home said it was the most amazing place they have ever stayed.

We used taxis to get us around for excursions and to get to town. We enjoyed meeting locals and being so close to everything. Our time went by too fast even after 11 days in the area.

“Everything it claimed to be”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were a large group of 17 and the house was perfect. The age ranges of the children were from 6-16. The view is like no other. Having coffee every morning looking past the infiniti pool at the pacific was all the motivation we needed to wake up. Rosa the house keeper and cook was a great addition. When travelling with so many people it really is a bonus to have help in the house. If I had to say one negative about the house is that you are on top of a very very steep hill and every time you wanted to go to town (which is right down the hill) you really couldn't walk and were at the mercy of a taxi which took time and the cost started to add up. Maybe if they had some kind of ATVs that the guests could use to go to town that would eliminate the problem. I would definitely go back if given a chance.

Thanks for your kind review Janine! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. In regards to the hill--more than half our guests feel the walk is 'doable'--just not with groceries or suitcases of course. Other guests decide to rent cars, although not necessary. It is a steep hill, but that is what gives you the million dollar views, so it's a catch-22 of sorts. The 24-hour taxi service in Tamarindo is very quick and reliable and our concierge team are always a phone call away and always happy to assist setting that up whenever it's needed. Hope to have you back soon! While I think the idea of an ATV is a good one, there is simply too much liability involved in having owner vehicles for our guests use at the property. All the best from us at Blue Water Properties and blue Water Adventures.

“Villa Paraiso (Tamarindo, CR) = as close to heaven on earth as possible.”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I just returned from a 4 day trip with friends to Tamarindo, CR. We stayed at Villa Paraiso.
Tamarindo was as promised...a groovy little surf town that embraces the national slogan...Pura Vida (good life). Very chill. We hit the high spots (Witch's Rock, Dragon Fly, etc.) and deep sea fished (caught 9 6' sailfish) as well as did an awesome ATV tour in the mountains and on the beaches.

The best part of the entire trip started and ended with Villa Paraiso (VP). The place is simply exquisite. VP sits above Tamarindo and looks down on the beach/town (almost directly above Witch's Rock). As one sits on VP's veranda they are treated to a never ending changing seascape as tides change, boats move, clouds pass, birds fly, surfers surf etc. The view NEVER gets old. THAT view in particular is beyond description while sitting at VP watching the sunset. There aren't words to describe the vast array of colors each sunset bring. WOW.

VP's on-site staff are helpful and friendly. The bedrooms are spacious and well pointed with high end finishes (beds are very comfortable). The villa flows effortlessly. The pool is refreshing and a great place to relax watching time go by! VP is clean and well maintained. IT is as promised from the http://www.luxurytamarindo.com webpage.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else. It is a short walk (15 min) down the hill to the beach and town and only a few miles from the best grocery in town. It is perfectly located.

Safe travels and Pura Vida!

“Gorgeous house - great for parties!!”
Reviewed 19 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Our experience at Villa Paraiso was excellent. We loved the house and can only echo the consistently positive reviews that others have left. However, specifically we would highlight:
-Rosa and Louise. They went out of their way not only to provide all the stated services, in excellent manner, but also to provide whatever information or services we needed, from the mundane (shuttle to our fishing and groceries delivered) to the exotic (helping us to have a butcher deliver freshly prepared cuts of meat for the grill!). Rosa is a very good cook and Louise was so helpful.
- The pool and view. Unparalleled and seemingly created for having drinks and watching the sunset. The view is stunning all day and night.
- The rooms were clean and modern, beds comfortable, showers great and ACs working very well.

We were 11 men on a deep sea fishing trip and loved the house. Plenty of room for us. The 24hrs security did not seem needed but was highly welcomed all the same.

Two things to note: 1) the road/hill is very steep and walking up is a real workout, not for elderly or children. However, there are super cheap cabs all around in Tamarindo that are happy to shoot you to the top for $3-4. 2) the pool is for lounging and wading, not designed for children to play. Little kids might get bored if you plan to stay at the house a lot during your visit but it was perfect for our purposes and adults.

All in all a great experience! The staff of Blue Water stopped by to make sure everything was going well and Louise and Rosa were there whenever needed. Highly recommend this house in Tamarindo!
