I have been to many Airbnbs and this is by far my favourite. Every room had big beds, A/C, a safe, and most are walk out right to the pool. There were four full baths and the water was hot even when all were in use.
It felt luxurious and modern, and Maria brought it to the next level with a tasty breakfast every day. Having a maid really allowed us to relax and enjoy the place, and she went above and beyond every day.
One of the lights flickered and Adriana had maintenance guys there in under half an hour. There was even a groundskeeper to clean the pool for us. Our stay in Tamarindo would not have been nearly as memorable without Stay in Tamarindo.
If you are looking at this review and wondering whether it’s worth it - book it!

Beautiful house
We had a lovely stay at villa motmot, the house was plenty big enough for our group of 10. It’s basically a duplex that can connect on the bottom floor, so there are two living spaces. The roof was a great place to hang out while the sun set and the pool was very nice to get a break from the heat outside. Maria was lovely, it was great to have the floors cleaned every day and all the other daily cleaning she did. It definitely made our vacation more relaxing.

My 8 friends and I rented this villa for my birthday, and it turned out to be perfect to entertain, with easy access to the town. The host Adriana helped me book any excursions and shuttles, which was a huge help. Maria also made us the best breakfasts and to top it off, the view from the rooftop were my absolute favorite. I high recommend this stay for Tamarindo, Coat Rica.

We had a great stay - highly recommend. We were 3 families (13 total: 7 kids and 6 adults). The space: was great, large kitchen and living room on either side. Deck was great, rooms were well appointed and the outside area was great. Pool was larger than expected created some great family memories. The support: was fantastic. Adriana was great at getting everything organized (we did adventure day, private boat cruise, a number of transfers). Her communication was top notch. Maria was great at keeping everything clean and cooked great breakfasts. The location: was about a 15min walk to the beach. We rented a golf cart which I would recommend. Overall was great.

Our stay at Villa Motmot was perfect. We loved every aspect of the property and had no troubles at all. When there were minor issues like AC showing an error code in one bedroom it was fixed very quickly. The actual home is beautiful, with plenty of space for even larger groups - we had 9 total and it was very easy and never once felt crowded. I'm sure it would be no trouble to have 12. Maria the housekeeper does an amazing job, breakfast is prepared exactly when you want it and is delicious. We opted to purchase our own groceries which was quite straightforward to do, with markets located less than 10 minutes away walking and only 1-2 minutes driving. Overall an outstanding stay, we would recommend to anyone and will definitely return on our next trip to Tamarindo.

We had an outstanding stay at Villa Motmot. It is a beautiful property, exactly as advertised. Very spacious - we had 9 adults - two couples and then 5 adult children, and it never felt even remotely crowded - everyone had plenty of space whether inside or around the pool.
Daily housekeeping from Maria is excellent. Breakfasts were prepared at the time we wanted (for us usually around 10 due to late risers. . ) and were delicious. We chose to purchase out own groceries and it was really pretty easy to do - nearest smaller markets are a 5-10 minute walk or a very quick drive. We would do smaller purchases on foot and for larger amounts would drive. We had one car between the 9 of us and that was fine (we weren't planning to leave Tamarindo). You could do it with no car, and even a golf cart isn't needed.
It's a quick walk to restaurants, markets and the beach - easy to do, and very safe.
Overall I thought Villa Motmot was definitely worth the money and would come back.

We stayed here with 6 couples total and had an amazing time. The villas matched the descriptions - they were clean, the rooms were spacious, and included many amenities. It was nice to have 2 villas (connected by the downstairs and balcony) with so much space. The pool and rooftop were used many times. The location is a less than 10 minute walk to downtown and the beach but I would recommend renting a golf cart the entire stay - the Airbnb is located on a hill and it also gets extremely hot and humid during the day - walking is doable but not fun! It was amazing to have Maria there to tidy up the house and prepare breakfast for us. I would definitely recommend this Airbnb as well as Stay in Tamarindo concierge services. Cris helped facilitate excursions and it was a seamless process. I definitely would recommend doing the private catamaran tour… so beautiful and fun. We will be back!

The house was awesome. We had six couples at the house and the house worked perfectly for us. The house is only about 10 minutes walk to the beac. The kitchens were great, and the living rooms for plenty large enough for all of us. And the swimming pool was also amazing, just like the rooftop to watch the sunsets. But by far the best part of our rental was Maria. Maria was our housekeeper each day from about 8 AM to 4 PM. She made the most amazing breakfast, great snacks and cocktails, and kept the house, miraculously clean. Maria alone is by far the best part of renting the house.

This Villa was amazing!! The house had enough room for our whole family of 7 guests. Central AC upstairs, individual AC units in the room, separate areas and a very nice pool/backyard. The first morning we woke up to monkeys in the trees so definitely beautiful wildlife. The beach is about a 10-15min walk although I recommend renting a golf cart as the villa is a on a hill. Grocery store is 5 mins walk down the street and the Calle Central had bars, restaurants and shops. I would recommend staying here, the Hosts Adrianna and Cristina were very accommodating and quick to plan our day and boat trips!

This place is exactly like the description and the photos: don't think twice and just book! You won't be disappointed. Extremely clean and super spacious. Our favorite part of this stay was, hands down, the breakfast preparation. We followed the recommended grocery list, which allows the cook to prepare a traditional Costa Rican feast. Don't skimp on the tropical fruit! The food was better than a lot of the other traditional Costa Rican food we ate at other restaurants and sodas around Tamarindo and La Fortuna! Gracias Lupe y Maria!
We also liked the individual AC units in each bedroom, and the roof which (because the house is also up on a hill) was a great place to hang out around sunset with the view and the breeze.

We Really enjoyed our time at Villa MotMot. What made the experience better than expected Was working with Adriana and Christina. They made sure the process was smooth prior to, during, and exiting the property.

Our group of 10 stayed in the villa for just over one week, and we couldn't have asked for a better stay! The villa was extremely spacious, clean, and well designed. It looked even better than in the pictures! We really enjoyed the outdoor pool and bocce court. The greenery surrounding the pool was beautiful, and the entire villa felt very secluded and private. The villa was about a 10 minute walk from the center of Tamarindo, so it was a best of both worlds. We could enjoy our space in private while having access to the beach, restaurants, and fun that Tamarindo had to offer. The staff really made this place special. Cris and Adriana were extremely responsive and helpful in booking excursions and activities. We booked several activities including scuba diving, hiking, and a private chef, thanks to them. Lastly, Maria really made this place special. The breakfasts she made were so delicious. We looked forward to them every morning. She was incredibly kind and made the place like home.

Our stay at Villa Motmot couldn't have been more perfect. From the time of booking until the day we left, things were pretty much seamless. Our concierge Cris and Adriana took care of every detail, and Maria our housekeeper were fantastic. We're a group of 40's and 50 something's that love to cook and entertain so the kitchen being well appointed was a treat. We arranged to have some provisions (beer, water, coffee, fruit etc) delivered before our arrival and everything was there neatly put away. The rooms and decor are very well done. Beautiful showers with great water pressure, and the beds, linens, and towels were luxurious. This was our second time in Tamarindo, and we would certainly stay in a Stay In Tamarindo property again. Another note, rent golf carts. They are the best way to get around. They will drop them off and pick them up for you. No hassle! Nicole Schultice Philadelphia Pa.

Sanctuary within Dynamic Tamarindo
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!

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.

Nos quedamos un grupo de 9, 2 familias y todo estuvo super bien. En especial, quiero resaltar el servicio que nos ofreció María, la “house keeper”, con sus ricos desayunos, recomendaciones asertivas, amabilidad y respeto para todos, hizo la gran diferencia en nuestra estadía, ??. Estamos super agradecidos de sus servicios, durante esos 4 días . Nos sentimos super bien con ella.
La casa esta super linda , cómoda y muy bien equipada, tenia de todo, hasta un BBQ que fue un plus. La casa es bien grande, que tiene dos apto/casas iguales en una misma estructura, pero lo perfecto hubiese sido que las dos salas estuvieran conectadas, como si fuera una sola, pero no estuvo mal. Las habitaciones, que están en el primer piso conectan y por supuesto la terraza es compartida. La decoración también está muy linda. Los a/c funcionan bien y las camas están ok.
La piscina fue perfecta, especialmente para cuando llegábamos de las playas. En realidad la casa esta bastante cerca de la playa y del area de bares y restaurantes, que se puede llegar caminando. Uno de los días, coordinamos para unos masajes en la misma casa y nos fue super.
El contacto con Adriana, la “Host”de igual forma fue estupendo, siempre atenta. La casa provee estacionamiento para un vehículo, pero al frente de la casa dejamos el otro sin ningún inconveniente.
Lo único a mencionar, fue que durante nuestro estadía el personal del mantenimiento del patio estuvo laborando y aunque ese día estuvimos casi todo el día fuera de la casa, no fue inconveniente; pero si hubiésemos estado allí disfrutando de la piscina, sí lo hubiese sido; pero por otro lado estamos seguros que si lo hablábamos con Maria o Adriana se hubiese resuelto.
En fin, si regresamos a Tamarindo, volvería a quedarme allí. Bien recomendada y muy lindo el lugar. Gracias por todo.

Met me at the very start to go over small details and answer any questions I had. High recommend and would totally book this place again if I ever visit Tamarindo again!

VillaMotMot was the perfect retreat in the bustling town of Tamarindo. We stayed with friends for our friends for my wife’s 30th bday and it was incredible. The house was clean, the rooms were amazing and the AC was much appreciated. The pool was cleaned daily. The house was very secure (the locking system is a bit complicated but they provided thorough instructions.) We watched the sunset from the rooftop every night and had night swims every night. The house is a short walk from town which was nice because it felt private and quiet when we needed it but heads up that the hill at the end is a bit steep and if you rent golf carts they may not make it up. We walked it many times though and had no problem. The host also helped us book airport transport and a boat which was very helpful.

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!

Amazing Place!
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.

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!

Fantastic villa in the perfect location
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!

Wonderful, quiet and close to nature house
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.

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!!

Beautiful & Luxurious Villa!
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!

Perfect Stay!
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.

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.

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.

Wonderful stay at Villa Motmot over 5 days with 10 people
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!
