Tamarindo condo description
**TRUE OCEANFRONT! - RARE FIND in TAMARINDO/LANGOSTA AREA!!** 50 meters from the water! Ocean Surf and Sunset Views from almost every room, as well as from the private patio area and the pool! Fantastic 1500 sq. ft. 2 BR, 2.5 Bath Condo, directly on Playa Langosta Beach, Guanacaste Province, North Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Walking distance to Tamarindo.
Gorgeous, new Spanish Colonial style building at the end of 'Million Dollar Row'. Inlaid pebble mosaic tile floors, etched 'glass' concrete walls, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including BBQ, Kohler bath fixtures, high trayed and arched decorative ceilings, local art, big screen plasma TV, DVD, cable, internet, Boogie board, sand toys, coolers and beach towels all available for your use. Steps to the oceanside infinity pool with fountains. Very Private Lanai. You will feel like it is your own private garden with a little path that leads you straight to the beach.
The sand and ocean are stunning here! Tidepools and shells and at low tide you can walk along Langosta beach north all the way across Playa Tamarindo to the estuary across which is Playa Grande, or down the beach to the south across the Langosta estuary to Playa Avellanas where the Marriott hotel is located. The best swimming & surfing on Langosta is right next to us in front of the Barcelo hotel, enjoyed by tourists and locals alike.
Located just 1 mile south of the busy beach town of Tamarindo with it's shops, beach vendors, surfing, bars and discos, the location could not be better. You are away from the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo, but close enough to walk to town if you like. Close by are great restaraunts, some with live music and there is a Casino 1 Block south at the Barcelo Resort. Sportfishing, kayaking, horse back riding and numerous tours available and easily arranged from this area.
Maid service is provided two times per week, and can be arranged daily for an extra charge. 24 hour gated security.
This is our home, not just a rental property and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Great stay in Langosta!
Great stay in Langosta!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Horizontes del Mar. The sunsets are outstanding. The condo is very big, private patio and is very well appointed. Having a car was helpful for grocery shopping and day trips to different beaches in the area. We stayed there with our 18 month old and she loved it. The property management team was excellent, and the staff at the condo were incredibly friendly and helpful.

Very Nice Place on the Beach

The condo was just exactly as advertised, very well furnished and equipped with everything you need. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. Spent lots of time in the pool and poolside admiring the waves and the sunsets. A little surprised that the housekeeping had not been completed prior to our arrival and that the minor repairs (light bulb, loose cabinet door) we requested were not addressed prior to our departure. It was great to have the store a short distance away. Super place to relax and do nothing.

Owner response: I am so happy to that you enjoyed your stay! I know the sunsets by the pool are amazing and Playa Langosta/Playa Tamriando area is definitely is a great place to kick back and relax. :) I am sorry the room was not ready when you arrived. I have brought this to the attention of the property manager who was accommodating both a later check out and your early arrival - we do try to work with people's various flights etc. and are not really stringent with check in and check out times for guests. However, it would have been so much nicer for you had it been properly prepared. Thank you so much for your feedback. We are very happy you enjoyed the condo and we welcome you back to stay with us any time! Best regards, Carla
Great value and Location!!
Great value and Location!!
Really nice condo right on the beach. The building staff was very friendly and helpful especially the gardener. Great guy!!! Condo had eveything we need, fully stocked, nicely furnished, very cozy. The only negative was the maid service, she could definately be more thorough with the cleaning. If i was the owner i would replace her, if she cleaned better i would have rated the property excellent!!!

Great place to stay
Great place to stay
The condo was wonderful. My husband took me to Costa Rica for my 50th Birthday and it was the best experience I have ever had. The Condo has everything you could need to be right at home. The staff is very helpful and gracious always there when you need them. I highly recommend staying here. I can’t wait to go back we already miss the friendly people & great culture. Pura Vida!

Hi Carla, This is just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your condo in January. It is beautiful, as is the setting. Very peaceful and private. We spent lots of time on the beach, on the patio and by the pool. It was sunny and warm (hot) every day. A most welcome relief from the cold and snow in Michegan. The RPM staff people were pleasant and helpful. We had a great time. Thank you for making the condo available. We spent a week in Jaco after Langosta. The beach there is very different. No shells and not as scenic. Not as hot, cloudy skies some days, and some rain. The towns are quite different as well. We enjoyed both spots very much but think Langosta was more relaxing. And your condo was truly the most elegant! Thanks again. Ann and Jim

About the owner: Carla and Ruth are business partners, investing in real estate properties. Carla, an Interior Designer and Realtor and Ruth also a Real Estate Agent. We work well together, complement each other's strengths and appreciate having homes such as this one in Costa Rica.
Why the Owner Chose Tamarindo:
Once you visit Costa Rica you understand why people visit and just never leave. The country is diverse and beautiful, the people friendly, the food fresh and fantastic. Mariott just opened a gorgeous new hotel, Four Season's is close by, RIU just opened a 5* resort. The surfing in the area is among the worlds best. There are 4-5 different beaches in either direction within 30 minutes by car. Great value, yes even today, for vacationers and for real estate investors. Fantastic artisans, jewelry, carvings, turned bowls, leatherwork at very modest prices. Fabulous gourmet restaurants for half the price of a North American cities. Excellent organic coffee, produce, fresh fish, meats, cheeses and breads at the grocerias.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There is nothing like waking up every morning to the ocean views out our windows and the beach just a few steps off the patio. The privacy of our condo unit is exceptional being an end unit on the ground floor. Nothing blocks the ocean view and no need for anyone to walk in front of it, unless it is Pablo the garderner! Wildlife is everywhere, a short stroll takes you up into the jungle and mountains, to town or from our beach, Playa Langosta, to Tamarindo Beach! You don't have to have a car rental as all essentials are walking distance.
