3 Bedroom Main House and a separate *Guest House.
*Guest house is on the adjacent property - not attached to the main house.
Enjoy some of the most amazing sunsets that Costa Rica has to offer from the pool deck. The breathtaking ocean view and surrounding rain forest make this the perfect place to “just be” and take in the beauty and tranquility of this incredible country. The main house features 3500 square feet with all the modern amenities along with the privacy of a gated private residence. To put the icing on the cake there is also an 1100 square foot guest house fully self contained.
At an elevation of 950 feet, it receives a constant ocean breeze. Casa Tanglewood has daily visits from toucans, colorful parrots and a myriad of other birds. You can enjoy their song while you sit under the palapas enjoying a glass of wine while you wait for dinner.
Looking out to the ocean from the kitchen are double patio doors leading to the large infinity edge swimming pool. Under the palapas is a large informal sitting area with a dining table for 8. Around the large infinity pool there are chaise lounges and sun tanning area. This offers the ideal location... the Pacific Ocean straight in front of you with year round sunsets and on either side the seclusion of the rain forest. One of my favorite things to do is have an early morning coffee in the courtyard next to the pepper bush, cinnamon tree and the orchids.
This beautiful Spanish style house is also accompanied by a quaint Villa with king size bed, single pull out sofa, living area, kitchen, outdoor seating area overlooking the valley, the lower floor has a queen sized pull out hideaway bed and two twin beds. Each floor has a washroom and there is even an outdoor shower on the lower floor.
Casa Tanglewood was purchased by myself and a couple of friends in 2010 to fulfill a lifelong dream of providing an amazing home for travellers to enjoy.

There were 7 adults in the party. The description of the main villa was incorrect, as it is a 3 bed villa with the fourth and fifth bedrooms being in a guesthouse.
The villa had beautiful views over the coast and rainforest and an infinity pool. The pool area was large, but did not have adequate sun-loungers, as one of the 3 had perished in the sun, leaving us with 2 for the 7 of us for whole of the holiday. The outside seating area was lovely and had a couple of BBQ’s during our stay. The sunroof had no facilities on it to watch the sunset.
Inside there were TWO en-suite bedrooms, the third having a separate shower room only. This bedroom did not have any wardrobe area for garment hanging. None of the rooms had curtains and there was no obscured glass in the bath/toilet areas, although we are all friends, there are certain things that we don’t want to see of each other!
The living area was large & spacious, the kitchen area had a great large fridge freezer, with ice making facilities and a separate large wine cooler. The dishwasher was not secured and inadequate supply of dishwasher tablets, and some of the basic kitchen facilities were missing too. We were not supplied with toilet tissue as per the website.
There was a great washing machine, and tumble dryer, but did not have the advertised airer. There was also no iron or hair dryers, until requested. there was no ironing board either. The safe did not function and the fly screens on some door were broken and not fixed until 3 days before we left.
Access to the guesthouse was down a steep driveway or steps, which did not have a handrail for support, This would not suit people with joint problems and seemed unsafe. The lighting down the driveway was not functioning adequately and was repaired after requesting. The downstairs room had an open plan living/bed area, with TV, toilet and washing machine, and smelt badly of mildew. The upstairs area had a large comfy bed, but no wardrobe and had to drape garments over the sofa bed. The small kitchen had a large cooker (not used) and fridge freezer. This had NO kettle and only 1 adult size and 1 child size mugs, so had to use the microwave for the morning coffee. The aircon unit was not working properly and was repaired once requested. There was no bath, but a quirky wall tiled shower, which was a bit fierce on sunkissed skin. This room also smelt BADLY of mildew/must It was not possible to keep doors open whilst occupied, as there was not fly/mesh barrier to stop bugs entering the room. A dehumidifier was provided after request, which lessened this odour by the end of the holiday, but did not resolve the issue.
The home was beautiful with amazing views. We arrived at night and spent 30 minutes trying to find the guesthouse . I assumed it was next to the main house . It is 150 steps down a ravine so very secluded, something to keep in mind if you want to be close together. The pool was wonderful . It takes about 15 minutes to reach Dominical . We enjoyed being able to drive to the small towns and 30 minutes to Manuel Antonio then returning to peace and quiet at the Casa. A true paradise . We had toucans visit very early in the morning everyday but did not see or hear monkeys . There was no house phone during our visit . We could not make any local calls so it was hard to confirm tours or call Kelley.We communicated with her via internet .
Casa Tanglewood was peaceful , beautiful , clean, modern and we would definitely stay there again .
