Last month, promised you a list of the best oceanfront vacation rentals in Tamarindo – and we delivered. Well, partially. We shared the first part of our list, which highlighted 5 beachfront vacation rentals in Tamarindo, with some help from Playa Langosta, Playa Flamingo, and Playa Potrero – the "greater Tamarindo" area, as we know it. Today, we're bringing you the grand finale – grand, not in the sense of overshadowing our first list, but grand in its true meaning: luxury, oceanfront estates, grand in both size and style. Because, these homes are truly something more: Perfect for that once-in-a-lifetime wedding, event or celebration, they promise more than the space you need; these vacation homes deliver on the luxury experience. Oceanfront infinity pools. Full-time staff. Bubbling Jacuzzis. Multiple master suites. Gourmet kitchens. High design. And oh, those views. These homes represent the apex of oceanfront vacation rentals in Tamarindo: the nexus of upscale living, exclusive location, and dreams made reality. And we are so excited to share them!
Set on a beachfront hillside, Flamingo Blu represents so much of what we – and you – love about oceanfront living: breezes that refresh and ocean horizons that never end, sunsets etched in memory and the harmonies of crashing surf. This is the picture of artful living and a vacation in paradise – one of our newest and most exclusive oceanfront vacation rentals in Tamarindo (technically, Flamingo), and an exquisite property. Built completely in the round, Flamingo Blue is a riot of streaming light, mindful flow, high design, and awe-inspiring views, the latter thanks to its hillside position: The views, the breeze, and all of Guanacaste seems to unfold at your feet, sweeping up to greet you to wild and wonderful Costa Rica. And all this, just steps to the beach. For, though Flamingo Blu rises above the sea, it is still ofthe sea: a private beach staircase descends from the pool terrace to the sea, inviting beachfront sojourns and refreshing dips, toes in the sand and front-row seats to sunsets that glint off a calming Pacific.
Step out of time and into a flight of fancy – into Casa Costa Blanca, a beachfront luxury estate that sits directly on the pristine sands of exclusive Hacienda Pinilla (about 15 minutes from Tamarindo). Against a backdrop of mesmerizing waves and endless horizon, soft sands and breathtaking sunset, this newly renovated vacation home accommodates 24 guests in a sprawling main villa and guest house: It's an ideal home for luxurious weddings, family reunions, events and celebrations of all kinds. And celebrate, you will. It's impossible to ignore the pull of the home's oversized, custom infinity pool with heated Jacuzzi, expansive sun terrace, and shaded rancho – an outdoor kitchen and dining area, for your relaxation pleasure. Indoors, Casa Costa Blanca is a true coastal mansion, flooded with light and upscale amenities: French doors open line the Pacific oceanfront side of the home; a full-time housekeeper and groundskeeper attend your stay; and luxury amenities, like full-home air-conditioning, to keep you relaxed and comfortable.
Where rocky coastline juts into foaming seat, Casa Bella Mora takes its stand: An ultra-modern wonder of desert architecture, built for Guanacaste's tropical dry forest and yet completely at home here, amidst the watery world of the Pacific Ocean. Indeed, this is not only one of our newest oceanfront vacation rentals in Tamarindo, but also one of our most unique. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls, clean lines, and precise angles converge on Casa Bella Mora, where organic shapes and an outdoor-inspired palette harken back to the beauty of nature. And indeed, this home is all about sense of place, taking every opportunity to invite light and air, sky and sea to stream in and fill its interiors. But, in truth, you'll want to spend most of your time out-of-doors, lounging on the wood sundeck, nestled in the cushioned pool loungers, seeking refuge from the shaded patio and, of course, seeking refreshment in the beachfront infinity pool, mere steps from the sea. When you can pull yourself away from this life of leisure, a private beach path leads down to the lava rock, sand and surf of Punta San Francisco.
If you dream of sleeping (or napping) to the soothing sound of lapping surf, crashing onto soft sand – well, Casa de Luz is in the business of making sure your vacation dreams come true. Unrolling over a main villa and two independent courtyard casitas, offering full-time staff and space for 20+ guests, and incorporating tropical gardensand upscale amenities, this oceanfront home is as soothing as it is exciting, as welcoming as it is luxurious. A study in superlatives, Casa de Luz stands out in almost every way: Not only is it one of the largest oceanfront vacation rentals in Tamarindo, but it's also right on the beach: mere steps to your private beach gate and the high-tide tidal pools that invite you to lounge, sunbathe, and enjoy the fascinating ocean life that inhabits this quiet stretch of sand and rock. (World-class surf, just a quick walk down the beach!) And, as if all that weren't sufficient draw, this lovely home is completely committed to the environment, as one of Tamarindo's only solar-powered homes, with low chemical use (including in the ionized pool) and biodegradable amenities and products.
Bordering the tranquility of a park, abutting the Pacific, and recently renovated, Villa Concha is a study in the best-of oceanfront vacation rentals in Tamarindo. Indeed, this is a home built for views, for wildlife sightings (howler monkeys, iguanas, birds and butterflies, among them!) and unquestionably, for you. Built precisely for this location, Villa Concha creates indoor/outdoor flow to celebrate its serene and privileged beachfront location: Expansive glass accordion doors turn indoor living into out or, when closed, invite natural light to stream inside. Sprawling decks and patios surround the home; a beachy color palette remembers the Pacific, and a private pool embraces its oceanfront location. And yet, for all its charms, Villa Concha beckons you away – and towards the lapping Pacific, where warm sand meets mottled lava rock pools and Playa Langosta's famed surf. Because, is that not why you're here? Oh yes. So, welcome to privacy, peace, and tranquility. Welcome to your own oceanfront paradise.
