Tamarindo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Luxury beachfront eight-bedroom villa in a private community in Tamarindo, Costa Rica.
A perfect choice for big families or groups of friends, Villa Morabeza is a modern gorgeous villa equipped with all the goods to make your next surf trip an amazing one.
With eight bedrooms that accommodate a total of 20 people, Villa Morabeza is an excellent place to stay for groups who want to be close to the action of Tamarindo, yet have a quiet sanctuary as a home base. Tucked away in a private gated community on the beach at Playa Langosta, the property is only a 5-minute drive to town.
The villa’s design is impeccably modern with an island chic vibe. White walls and clean lines meet accents of light wood and woven rattan. The 12-foot high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows fill the indoor spaces with light and take full advantage of the beautiful ocean and pool views.
With a spacious layout, the property has plenty of spots to gather and create memories with your whole group. After a morning surf (or two), spend the day lounging around the pool and then settle into one of the outdoor patios with a cocktail in hand to watch the epic Tamarindo sunset before gathering around the 18-foot dining table for a group dinner.
A couple extra perks include a botanical all-natural system that protects the property from mosquitoes and other pests, as well as a purified water system with unlimited drinking water on tap. And let’s not forget the daily breakfast, housekeeping, and the surfboard storage area where you can conveniently store your traveling quiver.

Tamarindo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
On the northern Pacific Coast in the province of Guanacaste, Tamarindo has become one of the most developed and accessible beach towns in Costa Rica. Whereas many beach towns in the country are quiet and rural, Tamarindo offers a more lively experience complete with an abundance of restaurants, bars, beachfront lounges, and a buzzing nightlife.
Villa Morabeza gives the best of both worlds – it’s tucked away in a quiet private community on the beach at Playa Langosta, yet only a 5-minute drive to the action of Tamarindo.
The Tamarindo area has seemingly endless activities and adventures to be found. Of course, it’s a prime area for surf, but you can also get into sportfishing, mountain biking, snorkeling, ziplining, diving, golf, volcano tours, and more.
You can either fly into Liberia Airport (LIR), which is the closest option, about an hour and 15-minute drive to Villa Morabeza, or alternatively you can fly into San Jose Airport (SJO) which is a 4-hour drive. You can rent a car (which we recommend if you would like to explore the area and have total flexibility), or airport transfers can be arranged for an additional cost.
Tips for Renting a Car
For the most freedom and flexibility on your trip (especially to explore surf breaks), we recommend renting a car. For car rentals in Costa Rica, we highly recommend SIXT.
Here’s why in a nutshell: In Costa Rica, there is a mandatory third-party liability insurance for rental cars. Unfortunately, many companies and websites do NOT include this insurance cost in their quote you reserve online, so you could book a great-looking price online (like $5 a day) and end up having to pay an additional $12 – $27+ per day when you pick up your car, which can literally double or quadruple the cost of your rental car. (This is why most car rental companies in Costa Rica have terrible reviews.)
On our last trip to Costa Rica, we spent hours researching to try and figure out the accurate and best pricing for car rentals, and SIXT came out the winner. SIXT has clear pricing that includes the mandatory insurance (so there are no surprises), they have the best prices we found, and we ended up renting with them multiple times and had great experiences.
