What we like about this property

With the multi-level infinity pools, amazing ocean views and bright airy interiors, this luxury villa for rent in Costa Rica is a treat! We love the indoor outdoor experience.

Description

This lush, tropical luxury villa for rent in Costa Rica is a luxurious and private retreat. Located on a secluded hillside at the entrance of Tamarindo, there are breathtaking views of Tamarindo estuary and the Pacific Ocean all the way north to Playa Grande. 

Inspired by Balinese style living and built mostly with materials and furniture imported from Indonesia, this beautiful and spacious custom home was designed by renowned San Diego architect Steve Adams. With over 15,000 square feet, it is a vast compound that sleeps nineteen people.  

The living area seats twelve for dining at the ironwood long table or relaxing in comfort and style and can be opened or closed partially or completely depending on weather conditions. Once opened, the spectacular views from the main terrace are perfect for outside dining or enjoying a cocktail while viewing an amazing tropical sunset. Warm wood, wicker and gleaming tile create a tropical feel that extends to the endless horizon.

Divided by an outdoor terrace and breezeway, there are plenty of opportunities for privacy but with a communal ideal. With a total of eight bedrooms (six kings, seven singles) nine baths and two fully equipped kitchens there is room for everyone. 

The two pools are one of the highlights of the property and include a 21m  overflowing lap pool with integrated jacuzzi ending at a wood deck with double loungers for hanging out. The pool on the main floor overflows on 4 sides giving the impression of a giant mirror looking towards the ocean.

Simple, uncomplicated but undeniably luxurious, this is your destination for Costa Rica.

    We spent a glorious week at casa Alang Alang. It surpassed all our expectations. The house looks fantastic on the website but it was even better in real life. It is finished to a very high standard with wonderful workmanship. It was a huge joy to stay in. The beach was very close yet it was wonderful to retreat up the hill and watch the view from above. The views from the house are truly extraordinary. The house layout ensures total privacy with loads of wonderful relaxing areas therefore it is ideal for large groups as everyone still has their own space. The pools are very special , we particulary enjoyed jumping between the two! We had ages three to seventy five and everyone loved this holiday . Daniel the concierge could not have been more helpful he organised a couple of brilliant trips for us, suggested restaurants and took us food shopping. He also arranged a very successful nanny and cook. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We would highly recommend Casa Alang Alang and its staff the whole thing is truly amazing. Sophie (England )

    We spent the most amazing time at Casa Alang Alang. It is even better than the photos. The villa is amazingly designed. There are gorgeous views from every part of the property. There are so many different areas to lounge in and take in the breathtaking scenery. The property itself is also a joy to look at. It oozes quality and has been beautifully constructed. I enjoy sitting in the shade and there are lots of shady places to sit, but if you do want sun there are also sunny spots to soak in the rays!

    We were a party of 16 people ranging in age from 3 years old to 76 years old. The house was absolutely big enough for us all to enjoy each others company without feeling on top of each other. The games room was a perfect place for a group of children to sleep. All of the bedrooms were beautiful with spa like bathrooms and huge closets.

    The property is fantastic for slightly older children (over 8?) but is not particularly toddler friendly as there are 2 swimming pools on different levels so unless there are lots of adults around it can be difficult to police (we had a 3 year old and a 5 year old in our party). Also, as you can see from the website, you can actually jump from one pool to the other. This is obviously dangerous for very young children but fantastic fun for older kids. I had been nervous about my 8 and 10 year old children doing this but they loved it and it is no more dangerous than a regular diving board. (I even had a go at jumping as did many of the adults in our party!)

    It felt easy to make sure the older children were safe as the pools are very central to the living areas, and being infinity pools you can see what is going on in them very easily. Of course, you can never be too careful with younger children. We organized a babysitter while we were there and she was great at keeping an eye on the younger children. There is also a hot tub connected to one of the pools and a shallow area in the pool itself, this made a great area for the young children to play in.

    There is also a trampoline and a table tennis table which provided hours of fun. The beach is a 5 minute walk away down a dusty steep hill. The 76 year old in our party was able to walk up and down the hill, but it was tiring to do in the heat of the day. The 3 year old also found it tiring and wanted to be carried. A stroller would have been useless on this road. The 5 year old did this no problem.

    The little town of Tamarindo was a fun place to be. It felt safe (as long as you were sensible with wallets/phones on the beach for example). It had some cute beach bars and shops and was really fun to walk around.

    The staff at the villa were wonderful. Daniel acted as a concierge for us and organized amazing trips, babysitting, someone to help with cooking etc. He was extremely efficient, courteous and proactive.

    We would absolutely love to come back to this amazing property. We have been lucky enough to go on some wonderful vacations but I personally think this was the best yet. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Casa Alang Alang!
