CV8 - Villa Gaviota is one of 10 Villas at Courtyard. This 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom comes with cable TV, gas grill, full custom kitchen, A/C, and a private pool. It's just across the street from the beach and an easy walk into the center of Tamarindo
Lavish, is the only way to describe these beautiful three bedroom villas in Tamarindo. Located in Playa Langosta, just a mile from the center of Tamarindo, the villas have everything you would ever expect in a true luxury vacation rental. The architecture and the attention to detail put them in a class by themselves. Ocean views (some villas), private pools, rooftop Jacuzzis (some villas), luxury furnishings, and total security are waiting for you at Courtyard Villas.
All the villas feature hand-crafted floor and wall tiles, tropical hardwood doors and cabinetry, ceiling fans, custom kitchens, air conditioning, and more. The entrance to the courtyard is secure, with a doorbell located outside for guests.
Upon entering your villa, you encounter a view of the pool and garden area. The main floor is surrounded by a garden and opens to the pool terrace. The custom-designed kitchen offers American-style appliances including a dishwasher, oven, cook top stove, refrigerator and garbage disposal. The outdoor pool area has ceiling fans and a gas grill. All the bedrooms have their own bath and private shower, ceiling fans and air-conditioning.
A vacation in your own private villa at the Courtyard is as close to Pura Vida as you can get.

A Wonderful Place with Amazing Staff
Emily Y. from Halifax, NS recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in December, 2016 This house is three stories high and has a private pool that gets sun almost all day (a bit shady in the early morning). The house is clean and the temperature can be controlled at each level and in each room. It was very safe and the guards were very friendly. The beautiful langosta beach is just steps away and is even more picture perfect then tamarindo beach. Just a short 5-10 minute walk to town. The RPM staff will help you book and excursion and will get you the best guides. Overall, an amazing place.
A guest from Charlotte, VT does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2016 Our family of five states at villa #8 for a week in February. The home was very well furnished and the pool was great for late day swims. We were very close to Playa Langosta and walked acoss to watch several sunsets. The wall to Tamarindo was difficult but we were able to catch a taxi for a quick trip whenever needed. So if you have young children you may want to took closer to Tamarindo. We had planned to eat dinner in but the grill was not working. The owner informed us he converted the gas to charcoal. With no lighter or instruction it was not safe to cook with. There was only maid service once during the week and it was helpful as the floors were becoming sandy and the pool full of leaves. I think having them more often would have made the stay easier. The unit is three floors an several times my youngest came down too quickly and almost fell on the smooth tile so I would caution those with younger kids.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Hi Lora - thanks for your review and the information for future rentals. It is a bit of a long walk for young children, but there are usually taxis easily found. Our guests can always request extra maid service (at a fee) but most of our homeowners only have one or two times a week included in the rental price. We hope you come back in the future and stay with us again.
A guest from St. Catharines,, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2015 We had a very nice stay in Courtyard #8 Villa.The 3 bdr villa was excellent for our family of 5.It was well equipped with all amenities and the poolwas very refreshing on the very hot days. Beach was an easy walk across the road and it was also a nice walk into Tamarindo. The RPM representation was excellent. They werevery quick to respond to our needs and always very pleasant to speak with. They also booked some of our excursions. We would certainly recommend theseVillas for any future travellers.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Andrea - we are so glad you had a great stay! We'd love to have you stay with us again in the future.
Kelsey Y. from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in December, 2014 The house was beautiful and wonderfully located close to the beautiful Langosta beach and 15 minute walk to town. The private pool was perfect for lazy afternoons and the kitchen made it easy to cook meals when everyone was tired of eating out.
Sandy G. from Newmarket, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in March, 2014 This was just as the photos stated. The location was great and the staff at the management company were extremely helpful. Any issue was dealt with quickly. The people maintaining the pool, gardens and housekeeping were lovely and a pleasure to meet. I would stay here again in a flash.
A guest from McArthur, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2014 Came to langosta for a destination wedding I was more than satisfied with the villa! Great wifi so I was able to work and the pool was an amazing addition as well as the full stocked kitchen. The only thing we had an issue with was the shower head and 1 of the toilets. Everyone is extremely helpful! Well worth the money!
Merilyn and Charles C. from Oxford, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 We loved everything about the Courtyard unit; only a couple of things that need attention. We are also looking for a unit in the complex to purchase...... #5 was not to our liking, and #9 was bank owned. We REALLY liked #8 that we were in. I have asked the property/real estate mgr to watch for one for me.
A guest from Toronto, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2012 Even better than we expected! Property was clean, spacious and elegant. Very helpful staff both in the rental office and at our property. The few minor inconveniences were fixed quickly (DVD player did not work- they replaced it the next day; bee hive in back yard was removed immediately).The gourmet kitchen was a pleasure, there were plenty of towels, the pool was beautiful and someone came to clean it a few times a day, security guards were on duty 24/7, the location was perfect for our needs.
John B. from Downers Grove, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012 Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. Property was great. Close easy access to the ocean. Beautifull walk on beach to Tamarindo. Property management was extremely helpfull. They helped set up a great day at Rincon de la viejo with a fantastic guide. They also were extremely helpfull in setting up a rental car that was dropped off at our front door. Everything was first rate.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thanks so much for the wonderful review and feedback. Rincon de la viejo is a great day trip and I am glad you had a great time. Hope to see you again next year!
jason s. from blossvale, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2012 Great vacation spot. Property managers very helpful. Glad we rented a car since location a bit outside of town. Our villa was all we could have hoped for.
A guest from Florence, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2012 Wow, what a beautiful villa. The arcitecture, the grounds, the staff......all great. For our family, it was perfect! :))
A guest from Sterling, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 My family enjoyed our visit to Costa Rica. We had 3 large homes on the water for our groomsmen, bridesmaids and it was fabulous. We also rented afew of the Courtyard villas and were very pleased to find them spotless and comfortable. The management staff were there around the clock to answer,fix or direct us to make our stay pleasant. I'm sure we will return next year.
A guest from Pensacola, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2011 Took my wife and 3 daughters. They are very security conscious. This place made them completely relaxed. It was very spacious and clean. I love the style and remember the units being built long ago. They came out great. Definitely a better bargain and overall experience compared to a hotel.
Adrienne F. from Richmond, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2011 Our stay was fantastic-Lola incredibly helpful again and again! The place was impeccably clean and gorgeous! Thank you so much!
Laurie C. from London, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2011 Our stay was very good, the property was very nice and very clean. The workers / maids and security around the property were very helpful and polite. The Cold water did not work in one bathroom which when brought up to management company was fixed very fast. There were no BBQ utensils which we borrowed from a neighbour. There was also no stero / radio in the rental. We ended up using an old clock radio that worked, however, not the best. Price of Rental after arriving on site was high compared to what others paid at some property. Next Year we will shop around a little more.
Tim P. from Calgary, AB does not recommend this property. Stayed for 21 days in December, 2010 The owners have not kept up on replacing worn out and broken utensils. The cutlery and utensils were in the same poor condition as they were 12 months previous.
Tim P. from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 20 days in December, 2009 As always this villa and RPM come up trumps. This is our 4th Xmas & N/Y vacation in Langosta and I wouldn't do it any other way.
Betsy K. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2008 We had a blast. Had adult children in one villa, two couples and an infant in another and this was perfect. An easy stroll down to the beach. The staff was the greatest getting any arrangements we wanted taken care of. Hoping to have another visit to costa rica in my future!
Steve O. from Renton, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2008 This was a beautiful condo, but it's location was too far form downtown Tamarindo such that every time we went grocery shopping or surfing it was a $5.00 taxi ride, that took 10 to 15 minutes to reach grocery or downtown beach for surfing. These taxi expenses would not have been required if the condo complex was in the downtown area of Tamarindo.
