We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Motmot. Our housekeeper Maria was lovely and attentive, keeping the house very clean and tidy. She prepared a delicious Costa Rican breakfast for our family - we will miss her! The house was very well designed with the same amount of attention given to the exterior. It was evident the owner landscaped his property to sustain the wildlife in the area by choosing specific plants. This allowed us to view nature in all its glory including howler monkeys and an array of beautiful birds while we sat by the pool. We would like to thank the entire Tamarindo team, including Cristina and Adriana for ensuring our stay was enjoyable, relaxing and memorable.

The perfect solution. Minutes away from the beach, shopping, restaurants and the vibrant hustle bustle of surf town Tamarindo, MorMot provides a peaceful sanctuary smack dab in the middle of it all. This expansive luxury Villa provides enough privacy and solitude for each and everyone, and at the same time availed our large extended family to vast common areas to socialize and entertain. Whether enjoying catered dinners on the outside patios or savouring the stunning star filled night skies on the most upper deck, or playing a friendly game of “botchy ball” on the spacious grounds, or just hanging in a hammock, MotMot has it all. A special shout out to our most amazing cook and housekeeper Maria. She brightened up our days and kept us well fed with home cooked meals. It was tough to leave!

In November 2022 I spent a few days in the lovely house Villa Motmot in Tamarindo. We relaxed in the pool, the beautiful furnished rooms, in the tropical garden and the rooftop with view on the Pacific and the sunset. The village Tamarindo, restaurants, shops and the beach are very close. I had a great time! - Elisabeth from Switzerland

I enjoyed every minute! The house, the big rooms with big comfortable beds, the pool (salt water!), the sky-terrace, where you can watch the sun falling into the pacific ocean and the beautiful garden with lots of flowers, birds and even monkeys! What a location! It deserves five of five stars. I do recommend to stay there, a quiet place and only a few minutes away from the lively town and the beaches of Tamarindo.

This Airbnb was even nicer in person than shown in the pictures. Super luxurious and great for our large group. We really enjoyed the pool and the comfortable king sized beds in every room. The neighborhood was quiet and safe, and the cherry on top of this perfect rental was Maria, who tidied up every day so we had fresh towels and made beds, and prepared us breakfast every morning. I highly recommend this Airbnb for anyone with a large group who is visiting Tamarindo.

The house was amazing! It is a close, 10-15 minute walk to the beach and Downtown Tamarindo, with plenty of restaurants and shops all around. The house offered plenty of space for the 11 people in our travel party and basic toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash) were plentiful for our 10 day stay. The absolute best part of the house was Maria, who served as housekeeper/house mom for use during our stay! She made breakfast almost everyday and introduced us to authentic Costa Rican cuisine. We purchased most of the food she cooked, but after getting to know our family she brought us things that she thought we would enjoy. We truly missed her as soon as we returned home!

We stayed here with a number of friends for a long weekend. The house was clean, comfortable, spacious, and well-located. We appreciated all the help from the welcoming staff! Couldn't recommend more!

Loved the house!!! Adriana is amazing!!
Would definitely go back!
- Faysal, Posted: 03/15/2022
Loved this place! Amazing sunsets on the deck, wonderful large pool, clean and modern facilities. Location also unbeatable - close to all the action but not too close and still feels secluded. We were a group of 7 adults and a 3 year old and 4 month old and it was a perfect accommodation!
- Gordon, Posted: 03/10/2022
Place was as described. Clean, beautiful and centrally located. Staff was accommodating. Will be back!
- Justin, Posted: 02/27/2022
This house is fantastic. The yard is a tropical paradise on its own. The house is spacious clean and well appointed. Just a short walk to the heart of town. The best part of our stay were the property managers who bent over backwards to help us line up activities, get groceries, rental cars, Covid tests for the return trip and everything we could have possibly needed. We highly recommend it and would love to stay here again in the future.
- Matt, Posted: 01/28/2022
The house was very large and accommodating split into connected mirror images of each other. Two full enormous kitchens/living/dining-rooms, all bedrooms downstairs etc however the second floor desk patio connects the places as well as the rooftop lounge. The bottom floor pool was with plenty of sun and places to lay out and relax. There is a full foodstore about a 7-10 minute walk where we bought a ton of food to cook and grill on BBQ at the house, but downtown Tamarindo was also very close. About 15 minutes to the furtherest parts of the beach and restaurant scene. Our stay was wonderful with a very modern building. Would highly recommend!
Huge villa with amazing pool!!
Amazing Villa and great service! The villa has 6 rooms, huge pool, big terrace and huge rooftop to watch the sunset/sunrise. There is also a garden with many plants like Bananas, Mangos, avocados etc.. The management team was very professional and responsive to any request. The villa is perfectly located far enough from all the noise but still close to everything. Will definitely stay there again in the future.

Our family has lived in the Tamarindo area for a little over four years, so we know the town very well. When we had a large group of friends and family all decide to come and visit at the same time, we knew that we would need accommodations that would not only fit all of us, but also be something special so that my husband and I would get to enjoy our mini "staycation" there also. Villa MotMot exceeded our expectations on all fronts.
The house is divided into two connecting halves, each with its own kitchen and living room, so ostensibly smaller groups could rent just half, but it made for a spacious home away from home for our group, so that we never felt crowded and everyone had room to spread out and breathe!
The decorations and amenities were top notch and the furniture high quality and incredibly comfortable.
The house lacked nothing as far as what one would need for a comfortable stay, including gorgeous bedding, plenty of towels, toiletries, two fully-equipped kitchens, washer & dryer, a large barbecue grill, gorgeous pool with stunning multicolored lights when dark, and beautifully manicured grounds with a variety of local fruit trees and flowering bushes.
A favorite spot for us each afternoon was the roof top terrace which had a breathtaking view of the sunset and comfortable seating for sunset drinks as well!
The location was an easy five minute walk to where the night market is held, and a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to town center and the beach.
All in all, a fantastic stay, and Adriana, the Stay in Tamarindo rep could not have been more helpful and gracious with our requests.
Our friends and family had a relaxing and unforgettable stay at Villa MotMot and are still raving about it weeks later. Let's just say we are hoping to make it a yearly tradition going forward!

We felt super comfortable in Villa MotMot. It is a super nice, modern house, with pool, roof terrace with sea view and amenities that leave nothing to be desired. We especially liked the open kitchen. Who loves to cook with friends will love this kitchen and the open living room. The garden, with its wonderful plants, the papaya trees and the colorful birds and monkeys that you can easily watch from the terrace is also a dream. Enjoying fresh organic papayas before jumping into the pool is just wonderful.We loved enjoying the sunset on the rooftop terrace with a glass of wine. The whole sustainable concept is terrific and we will definitely see you again. Thank you so much for these fantastic days.
- Simone, Posted: 12/09/2021
Villa Motmot ist a beautiful house with al large living room/kitchen and lovingly decorated rooms. The garden and the pool are a peaceful and quiet place to relax und rest. From the big roof terrace you can see the sun set and watch the stars at night. I enjoyed my stay in villa Motmot very much. Thank you.
- Katrin, Posted: 12/06/2021
My stay in Villa Motmot was just great!! Its a modern place, newly built, big garden to relax, nice pool with some cool iguanas and other animals like colibris to see! The hang out zone on the terraze is great to have some barbecues. And the view from the second terraze is just WOW. We have seen some spectacular sunsets over the ocean from there. I love that it was a very quiet neighborhood, besides the fact that inside you do not hear anything from the outside. Also to mention is the fast and stable internet connection - as I work from home it was a big plus!! Communication was also very fast and easy. I will definately come again!!

A great place for people with high expectations. We felt very comfortable.

Villa Motmot exceeds all expectations! After traveling throughout Costa Rica`s rich, colorful and extraordinary flora and fauna we - a group of 10 people – found great relaxation in this recently finished Villa Motmot. We were really overwhelmed by this luxurious site with its beautiful house, pool and garden. The Villa consists of two separate units which can be shared by a group up to 12 persons and is located in the middle of a small nature paradise on a small hill walking distance to the beach as well as Tamarindo downtown. All 6 bedrooms consist of Kingsize beds and 4 of them offer direct access to the large pool. The two kitchens of each unit are fully equipped and so we enjoyed preparing and eating breakfast, lunch or dinner together either at one of the tables within the 2 living rooms or in the evening on the beautiful terrace. Here is to be added that on the large and comfortable outdoor gas grill/barbecue we prepared also fresh fish as well plenty of yummy vegetable. Not to forget the roof terrace with its breath taking view onto Tamarindo and the pacific ocean which was the preferred place for the revelers. Above us the infinite starry sky stretched out and we enjoyed watching out with a glass of white or sparkling wine at night time. At daytime birds and other animals could be seen and observed as the variety of plants, trees with its colorful and rich blossoms attract many different species and make them feel at home there. So the garden is a real highlight of the site. The early birds of our group took advantage to dive into the large pool and began their day by doing laps as a training unit before breakfast. The pool is supplied by a salt water disinfection plant which makes the water softer and better bearable for the skin. We really enjoyed it. Thank you very much also to Adriana and her team of Stay in Tamarindo who were helping us whenever we had questions or queries to be solved. All in all a great vacation in the beautiful Villa Motmot which we can recommend without hesitation. PURA VIDA, as the Ticos say. We will surely come back!

Villa MotMot is a large, modern, bright and beautiful house. It is ideal for families or larger groups. The garden is very nicely laid out and has a very spacious pool. You can watch birds in the garden and the stars on the sky terrace. Villa Mot Mot is very well equipped and lovingly furnished. The location is ideal. The beach, restaurants and shops are just a few minutes walk away. The house is elevated in a quiet area. We were in November with 10 people in the house and felt very comfortable, I give it 5 stars.

Villa MOTMOT is a luxury residence combining 2 separate houses and one swimming pool in an ideal way for larger groups of people staying there. Very impressive are the living rooms on either side with very high room height and large window opening to a combined terrace with a view onto the Pacific Ocean. It also offers a Roof terrace with even a better view on Tamarindo and the surrounding/ocean. You can enjoy watching birds in the trees kept and planted on the large property.The house and kitchen equipment offers everything you can think of and want to have access to during a vacation stay, very modern bathrooms, nice wooden dining table, comfortable pool loungers, large gas grill/barbecue, where we enjoyed our freshly prepared fish and shrimp. Quite impressive are also the pictures on the walls conveying the colorful diversity of Costa Rica and PURA VIDA !!
We enjoyed our stay very much and can firmly recommend the house to other guests looking for luxury residences able to take larger groups of people.

I had a stay in Villa Motmot in October and I have to say, that this was surely the most beautiful accomodation I enjoyed during my vacation in Costa Rica. The house is of amazing quality with lots of nice little details which make a stay super comfortable. A large and superbly equipped kitchen area, a stylish and comfortable living room with a huge TV set and large terraces make it a great experience. The bedrooms are all equipped with TV and king size beds and it is a pleasure to wake up looking at the blue of the swimming pool and the green of the well maintained and beautiful garden, with humming birds dancing from blossom to blossom. The location is not too far away from the beach, I rented a bike at a nice place called "Handlebar" (can recommend it for great beer), and using the bike it takes just 5 minutes to the sea. The advantage of being in the second row is to have a lot of privacy in a quiet neighborhood and you can relax perfectly after a day at the beach or in the nature on the fabulous terraces with an amazing view over the Langosta area. I just loved the sunsets, drinking a good red wine - what else do you need? Whenever I travel again to Costa Rica I will make sure I'll have some days at Villa Motmot. Thanks also to the lovely people of Stay in Tamarindo who were always of excellent help and care, adding their hospitality for a perfectly organized stay.
Great stay at Villa Motmot, Tamarindo

The entire travel group enjoyed the tranquility, nature, garden and pool area at Villa Motmot. The sky terrace was a preferred place for star gazers and bird spotters among us as we were eye to eye with parrots and many other beautiful birds from there. We also enjoyed sunsets over the ocean from there. The living room and kitchen areas did fit with all our requirements (joined cooking & relaxing) and the grill outside was used every night. Bedrooms have very comfortable King size mattresses and plenty of space regardless if people used the pool-sided bedrooms or the 2 in the back. City and beach are in walking distance. The garden is a little paradise, full of fruit trees, attracting humming birds and other animals. And we used the Petanque & Boccia place to play some games, very nice under a shadowing tree! All in all, Villa Motmot was for us the perfect combination to enjoy the nature and beach of Tamarindo. It was surely not the last time for us at this beautiful place!
