Villa El Estero is one of the 6 luxury homes that compose Villas Las Mareas, an ocean-view paradise located in an exclusive gated community nestled above the estuary on a Tamarindo hillside. Villas Las Mareas overlooks the looping curves of the estuary as it meets the Pacific in the pristine and protected Las Baulas National Park. On the beach in front of Villas Las Mareas are the waves that make Tamarindo an international surf destination.

Villas Las Mareas features a private infinity-edge pool and barbeque area that overlook the endless Guanacaste coastline and soul-southing Pacific horizon. First and second floor terraces provide generous space for the outdoor living that you dream of on your tropical vacation. Enjoy a steaming mug of coffee amid the morning birdsong. Check the surf. Stretch out on the daybed with your favorite book. In the evening, sip a cooling cocktail with your friends or family while the sun sinks into the sea.

Inside Villa El Estero, over 2,000 square feet of space is elegantly illuminated with natural light, and furnished in a unique Pacific Rim deco style with select local materials that facilitate the indoor/outdoor lifestyle of Costa Rica. The gourmet kitchen is equipped entirely with state-of-the-art Bosch appliances and supplied with everything that makes a kitchen feel like home.

Villa El Estero is unique among the Villas Las Mareas, being the only home that offers 4 bedrooms and can sleep up to 12 guests. The villa’s master bedroom, with its private second-floor terrace and stunning ocean view, is furnished with a king sized bed. The two guest bedrooms, one on the first floor and one on the second, are each furnished with a king sized bed, and two twin trundle beds are available. An additional ground-level suite in this villa contains a living area with a daybed that converts into 2 twin beds, and a private bedroom that is furnished with a queen sized bed.

As a guest at Villas Las Mareas, you're just steps from Pangas Restaurant & Beach Club, an innovative Guanacaste fusion restaurant with a full bar and friendly staff, set in the sand where the estuary and ocean meet. And this is just the beginning. Walk the street or the beach and experience the energy of Tamarindo, this vibrant beach town made famous by its year-round surf, adventure tours and eclectic international community. All the excitement of exploring, dining, shopping and nightlife are right in your front yard at Villas Las Mareas. Enjoy them all, and then retreat to the tranquil privacy of Villa El Estero where you feel worlds away from it all. Having the best of both worlds is not only possible, it is ready and waiting.

Las Mareas Villa 1 was the perfect choice for our vacation. The condo was even better in person than as shown in the online photos. Well appointed, well maintained, lovely furnishings and stunning views.

Everyone working for the property management company () were great. Incredibly helpful and willing to do whatever necessary to make our trip an enjoyable on.

Pura Vida!!!

Amazing stay at Las Mareas Villa 1. From the minute we booked, the management company provided all the help we needed for a great vacation. Communication was excellent both before and during our stay. We were able to book our tours in advance with the concierge, and they were always willing to answer our questions. A wonderful group of people who made everything easy.

The villa had everything we needed for a great stay. Excellent air conditioning, great washer and dryer, and all the kitchen equipment you would need. We spent a lot of our time on the very large balcony enjoying the amazing view. The pool was wonderful, and had great views as well. The location was quiet, but close enough to town that we could walk to dinner at night.

Two things to note when booking this villa. It is up on a hill, which makes for beautiful views but a tough walk back after dinner for those with sub par endurance or mobility issues. We took a cab, which was cheap and easy, but you can also rent golf carts to get around. The second thing to note is that the forth bedroom in this unit is accessed through a separate outside entrance on the ground floor, which is something to consider if you plan to use that room for children.

We would definitely rent this amazing villa again. Thanks for a great stay!

My family of 7 rented this Villa while visiting Tamarindo. We were extemely happy with it! The views were incredible, the villa was modern, beautifully furnished,and very clean. We just could not get enough of the amazing views provided by this rental. The staff also did a great job in arranging excursions. Every driver picking us up for the activities was prompt, courteous and professional. The zip line and ATV tours were great! All the local guides were very professional and friendly. This villa allowed us to walk (although an extremely steep uphill but if you are in good shape you can do it!) into town for all the restaurants which was great. Also, we were very happy to see that Tamarindo beach rented beach chairs and umbrellas as well which made relaxing on the beach great. You can sit on the beach near bars and restaurants so you can eat or drink while relaxing in the sun. The best part of the vacation was the unbelievable sunsets that we viewed from the beach. Overall this rental exceeded our expectations!The only negatives were: The fourth bedroom is a separate unit, with a separate entrance. The hill was hard to walk up twice a day.

Our group booked the entire Las Mareas Villas through Stay in Tamarindo () for the week of April 22-29, 2017, and everything about our stay – from beginning to end – was exceptional. We all wish we were still there.

Jen of Stay in Tamarindo helped with the booking arrangements and answered all of our many questions with friendly and helpful information. Stay in Tamarindo even arranged for shuttles from and back to the airport in Liberia (Edwin supervised the shuttles and made everyone feel welcome and comfortable). Upon arrival, the Villas were clean and ready for us, and Adriana of Stay in Tamarindo helped us get settled in and took care of everything we needed.

Las Mareas Villas are located on the hillside overlooking the Pacific Coast in Tamarindo. The views are spectacular! The individual Villas have identical floorplans and are new (constructed in 2013), with all modern appliances (including washer/dryer) and furniture. The beds are very comfortable. Everything is well-maintained. The Villas were cleaned regularly during our stay. The pool at Las Mareas got a lot of use by our group and is in a beautiful setting.

Cristina of Stay in Tamarindo provided Concierge Services for our entire group. She arranged tours, transportation, answered questions, offered advice, and generally made our week better. We visited beaches, bars, Rincón de la Vieja National Park (zip-lining, horseback riding, tubing, hot springs), went scuba diving, and took a Safari Boat Tour with up-close encounters with crocodiles and monkeys. Whatever you want to do or see in Guanacaste can be arranged through Cris.

But our favorite was probably the Sunset Sailing Cruise onboard an 82-foot schooner that Cris booked for us. Wow! Live music (thanks Max!) and truly gourmet food, not to mention snorkeling, dancing on the deck, and an open bar. And, Pangas Beach Club is right at the bottom of the hill for dining and fun all week.

Honestly this is going to be hard, because words can't really express how amazing this place and it's staff were. Everything from day 1 was perfect, the places were clean the staff were super friendly and accommodating especially our two coordinators Adriana Alvarez and Cristina Gonzalez these to girls went over and above for us in every aspect, we never felt like we were bugging them, they were always super friendly and willing to help. The Grounds staff or let's saying cleaning staff for the entire area were amazing and very trust worthy they wouldn't even take out tips when we tried to give it to them we literally had to force them, they kept everything so clean inside and outside. I Highly highly recommend Stay in Tamarindo as a company and Las Mareas as vacation rental I will be going back.

If you are considering staying in Tamarindo, book this rental! The house was amazing, we went with a group of 7 and it was so nice to have the 4 bedrooms and bathrooms so that every couple had their own space! The main level with the kitchen, living and deck was great and we spent a lot of time in this space enjoying the amazing view of the lagoon! The hill into town is steep, but we all walked it numerous times and it is doable. We also rented a few cheap scooters in town which helped us get around as well! Not to forget the countless hours we spent in the beautiful pool area. The staff is beyond amazing! Cris helped us plan all of our outings and adventures most of which were booked last minute and all were top notch. Also every driver that Cris sent for us were friendly, helpful and accomadating! We will remember this trip forever!

We stayed for one week and had an amazing time! The Villas were beautiful, I would have to say the nicest place I have stayed on vacation. Up to date, nicely furnished, fantastic views, great location. Pool was amazing- quiet, beautiful, many hummingbirds. The management company that worked with us during our stay was wonderful. We used their shuttle service to and from the airport- very easy. We also booked an adventure tour with them and enjoyed that very much. All in all an amazing trip and would love to go back!

We loved Villa 1, the views were amazing and the location was quiet and away from the main drag. It is important to note that the 4th bedroom is a separate entrance on the first floor, away from the main living areas. The hill is no joke - but you get used to it and it was a great way to burn off your meal after dinner :) The management team was awesome - friendly, helpful and available.

We had a great stay. There were eight of us going for a Birthday get away. The location was quiet. The pool right out the front was beautiful. The short walk to the beach was very convenient as well. There was a black/ lava rock outdoor shower for the pool, added to the tropical experience! The condo had everything we could need if we wanted to cook/lounge by the pool/ or go to the beach. If you are driving yourself, it can be a little hard to find the first time (as they don't have physical addresses in Costa Rica). You can certainly walk to town, it's about a 15 min walk, but a golf cart would be beneficial as it's a dirt road between the condo and town. We survived without one, cabs are only $5-6 US. I would definitely come back. The whole staff was very accommodating.

The place is hands down top of the line. At a great price too. We were a group of 7 guys. Great beds, great A/C, Great view... it was all good. The best thing was coming home after a long day and getting in the infinity pool to end the night. The only bad thing is the walk down/up the hill. We walked it every time we went out. We all are in good/great shape and that walk is no joke. Cabs are available though, we just did not use them. We called it the trail of sobriety. Thanks to the whole staff for a great time. Cristina and Danielle really took care of us.
A Beautiful Place for Our Wedding Guests!

The Las Mareas villas were a perfect place to stay for all 39 of our wedding guests! Our ceremony was held down the road from the villas at the Pangas Beach Club and so the accommodations were convenient for our guests. The villa layouts allow for people to spend time together in the kitchen and living room, but also get some private time in separate bedrooms with their own bathroom. The villas are beautifully furnished, very clean, and fully stocked with amenities. The beach and estuary is within walking distance, but you do have to walk about 450m down a semi-steep hill (so walking back up a semi-steep hill back to the villa). Our guests could also hang out by the pool and spend time getting to know each other! The property managers were friendly, fun, easy to communicate with and provided services (transportation, catering, etc) in English. They helped us organize guest check-in/-out since everyone was arriving and leaving at different times. We definitely recommend Las Mareas for a vacation (and wedding weekend) stay!
