Rio Santo is an Oasis of peace and quiet after. It is close to everything which makes it very convenient yet is far away enough to be able to be in calm. Even Tamarindo that is only 10 minutes away , will seem very noisy after you spend one night here!!
Tamarindo has a lot to offer, casino, french cuisine, italian restaurants, night clubs, there's no other place like it in Costa Rica.
The savoir- faire of europeans adapted to the local life, a enchanting mix
of foreigners and locals make that area unique.

Remember: Pura Vida!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Modern Villa! The place was fantastic and as described/pictured! Great location, just 10 minutes away from Tamarindo and close to Playa Avellanas and Lola's.
Nathalie was fantastic as a host - she shared plenty of local knowledge and even got us fresh fish at the market. We recommend staying at this place if you're looking to be a little out of the busy Tamarindo area and enjoying a fantastic villa experience!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We have been home from our vacation to Tamarindo for a week now and still cannot stop talking about how amazingly perfect our trip was. Top of the list would have to be the choice we made to rent the incredible home of Natalie and Enrique. This house looks just like the photos but even better in person. We felt like we were staying in a private villa in a fancy travel magazine, like an outdoor-indoor house if you will. Costa Rica is interesting in that there are no street names so you can't really plug an address into a GPS and get where you need to go. Sort of odd at first but actually helps you slow down and get into the groove of the relaxed culture. Who needs street names when you aren't in a hurry I suppose. Natalie was so helpful from the moment we got in. Meeting us at a larger landmark so we could follow her to the house. We did wonder if we should have stayed on the beach prior to arriving but one step into this house we didn't give two more thoughts about that. A true jungle oasis. We were a short 5-10 minute drive to the beach and we loved coming home to this house so much that we didn't really care to be anywhere else. I was traveling with my husband and 2 girlfriends and we were all very comfortable, had our privacy and felt very safe. The best part was cooking breakfast in the well appointed kitchen each morning and eating outside on the patio listening to the exotic birds and monkeys converse. Then reading my book and drifting off to sleep in a lounge chair. Ahhh. So nice. There is something very calming about this house. So relaxing.
Natalie was there for us, whatever we needed, arranged a day trip with a private guide who took us on the adventure of a lifetime - be sure to ask for a fella named "burro" he will be sure to show you a great day. She helped arrange for chefs to come to the house on our last night to cook us an exquisite french dinner and dessert. The other wonderful thing about Natalie was that she was there when we needed her but not around when we were savoring our quiet time. It was perfect, she was a wonderful judge of when we wanted to be alone and when we needed her. There was nothing lacking, it was heaven. Thank you Natalie for all of your time, attention to detail and opening your beautiful home to us!
You could not select a better place in Costa Rica! What a beautiful stay. Our hosts made us feel welcome and secure and made sure all our needs were met. The place is just gorgeous and spacious. It was close to golfing, yoga and the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The town of Tamarindo, which is truly THE destination was so easy to get to each day. We had a wonderful stay -- truly because of this welcoming home to come back to each day. Much appreciation to our wonderful hosts!
Wow! What a wonderful time we had! From the very moment I contacted Enrique regarding our potential stay, he was so helpful. We came to Tamarindo to get married. He helped us plan every detail! Let's first start with the house. He had several properties to choose from. We ended up picking this one which he build and manages. It's about 10 minutes outside of Tamarindo. Enrique meet us at the Automeracdo, and then we followed him back to the house. The pictures are exactly as is, but they don't even do it justice. The house is absolutely amazing! Perfectly appointed. Has everything you could possibly need-all housewares, towels, TV, a speaker hook up for your music, crystal blue pool and a huge outdoor rancho with lots of relaxing seating. So peaceful. The grounds are lush and filled with tons of colorful flowers and birds. The beds were comfy and everything is very clean and fresh. Each room has it's own airconditioning system. Enrique's suggestions of food: Patagonia, Bamboo Sushi, La Papala (we got married on the beach in front of here) were all very delicious. Our wedding couldn't have been more perfect: fresh, bright tropical flowers, the perfect setting on the beach prepared by Henry at La Papala, fire dancers, a Mariachi band, champagne, seabass cervice, blackened tuna, frozen mojitos, and lots dancing with a reggae band with a killer saxophone player. All thanks the Enrique! We will be back again and again I am sure to make many more memories!
My family and I spend a week in this beautiful home. Enrique and his wife were very kind and helpful in assisting with all sorts of activities. My boys had a great time surfing, mountain climbing, and zip lining. The house is well maintained and well presented. Thank you Enrique and Natalie for a great time and experience in Costa Rica. We will certainly be back!
