                            Lucky us!!! We got to stay in Heidi's beautiful comfortable condo for the month of January. The condo was very spacious and so comfortable. I really appreciated the large kitchen with a big island as I love to cook. We bought fresh seafood for a local and fresh vegies and fruit from the Saturday Farmers Market. The condo is in a great location. Just a short walk to the beach yet far enough away that is was very peaceful. I hope to return again someday. Heidi was very responsive and nice to work with.

                            My family of 5 loved this place. Our three sons (ages 14, 12, and 9) were happy to have the extra space in this big home. The pool was refreshing for a quick dip. This home had a great kitchen and had all necessary cooking supplies. We were pleased to see everything so clean and the AC provided great relief to the heat outside. It was a quick ten minute walk to the beach which was perfect for beginners learning to surf. Heidi was wonderful and answered endless amounts of questions for me. She has a binder in her place listing suggestions for good surf rentals and restaurants. We loved the Sodas Las Playas which served delicious Costa Rican meals and cheap prices. Only $6 for a huge lunch. The kids loved it. I hope to go back to Tamarindo again someday. I would love to stay here again and will recommend it to others.

                            This is a lovely condo in a great location. It is very close to the beach and all of Tamarindo's wonderful restaurants. It has a very big and comfortable living room where you can rest after a long day at the beach. The front porch was great for drinking our morning coffee and watching people walk by. This would be a great condo for a large group of friends.

                            A couple friends and I took a girls' vacation and stayed at this condo in July. I concur with previous comments, it is big! Super comfortable, really safe, good location. Noel the night watchman/security guard was so helpful and so sweet, it was a pleasure to come home to him at the end of every day! I also concur with previous comments regarding DEET. Even if you're someone who rarely gets bitten, bring DEET everywhere you go. No need for it in the condo, of course, but those biting bugs are waiting just outside. As are the monkeys and parrots and iguanas. I can't tell you how much time we spent just enjoying cold drinks out on the balcony, watching the monkeys in the trees across the road. So cool. Tamarindo is completely walkable, there is no need for a car in town. If/when you do rent a car to go to other beaches, Arenal, etc., get a 4WD. We learned the hard way (sliding backwards slowly down a narrow, muddy road) that a Corolla is not the best option. Definitely stop at the Wild Panda -- AMAZING, fresh, fruity cocktails and great food. I really miss that place. It's on the main road just down the street from the condo (someone can point it out if you don't spot it). La Baula is also great, as is the falafel place just down the road. On our last day we did the Blue Dolphin sailing trip and it was great! Even though it POURED rain for the last half the trip (lightning, thunder, etc.) we still had a great time. We saw whales and turtles from the boat, and a baby octopus up close when we were snorkeling. But avid snorkelers be warned, the snorkeling here not that impressive, even in good conditions. I had been forewarned not to expect any good snorkeling around Tamarindo, and that turned out to be true. Maybe there are places I don't know about, but just don't get your hopes up on that front. But the water is so warm! Go surfing instead, we took lessons from a guy we just happened to meet in the water one day. Sore shoulders and pecs the next day, but really, really fun. His name was Eduardo and he has a Facebook page at Eddysurfcostarica. My friend and I didn't know how to surf but he got us standing up and riding waves in a matter of minutes. Finally, don't wear anything you can't bear to get a little muddy. The roads around town are mostly dirt/gravel, and it rains regularly. Your flip flops will leave mud spatters up the back of your legs, it's just a fact.

                            This condo is a great homebase! Myself, my wife, and our four daughters stayed here for the month of June. The condo is much larger in person and has everything you need including AC in all rooms. It was also clean which is important to our family. The kids used the pool often and it was clean and safe. Heidi, the owner, was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only was the process of renting the condo easy, but she checked in with us multiple times on our trip to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. The property mgmt company also took care of the couple of items we had promptly and courteously. Noel, the security guard, was an absolute delight. He helped us out whenever he could and became part of our "extended family". We used the boogie board and surfboard that Heidi provides for her guests. I would gladly rent this condo again in the future. Here are a few recommendations for Tamarindo during our month stay: - Bring deet insect repellent. We brought 30% deet and it worked great. - You DON'T need a car. Save the money! You can walk to just about anywhere in Tamarindo within 10-15minutes. We only rented a car for our side trip to Arenal Volcano and Monte Verde rain forest. - Arenal should not be missed. Tons to do and stunning scenery! - If you're going to surf, get surfboards from either Matos surf shop (the guys are awesome there) or Surf Culture (Tito is the owner and super nice also). Both of these shops went out of their way to help my family enjoy their surfing/boogie boarding to the fullest. Restaurants: - La Baula's was our favorite place to eat. Phenomenal pizza, great atmosphere, and good prices. Just down the road from the condo. Staff there was outstanding. - La Pachanga was also a favorite of ours. Great food and the chef/owner is super nice. - FT's (across from Witch's Rock Surf School) has amazing burritos and fish tacos. We ate here 7-8 times during our stay. - Other restaurants were good or average. Trip Advisor does a good job on fairly accurate rankings. Heidi's recommendations are right on also. Thanks again Heidi for a great place to stay. We will cherish the memories we created for a lifetime. The Krueger Family

                            We wanted to send a quick note to express our deepest gratitude for allowing us to rent your home. Our three girls absolutely enjoyed having their own room, my youngest loved the swimming pool after a long day at the beach. Your recommendations were spot on! We enjoyed some of your favorite places like Noguis and Walters. My husband loved the Falafel restaurant! We loved the Guachipelin excursions and the shuttle service to the condo on Easter was fantastic. Although this was our first time to Costa Rica, it will most certainly not be our last. My husband and the girls are already talking about vacationing there next year. Thank you again for your hospitality, advice, and welcoming us in to your home, David, Susan, Sierra, Savannah & Ashlyn

                            Our crew of 5 had plenty of room in this spacious house. A large kitchen for our daily breakfasts, 3 bedrooms for everyone to get away from each other and relax as well as three bathrooms which spoiled us. We chose to pack up the car and drive to the beach, but you could walk if you were traveling light. We were able to walk to dinner a few nights to great nearby places. Good security. There's a pool on site, but there's so much to do in Tamarindo we never made it to the pool.Washer and dryer at the home were very useful. Owners very helpful from the time of inquiry to our departure and exchanged tips on where to eat and visit.

                            What a vacation! Location is great, the size of the condo was comfortable for my group of seven adults, it's clean, and quiet. You are less than a 5 minute walk to beach and minutes to some of the best restaurants and bars (You must go to Season's across the street!). Although safety was never a issue, the security guard who works the evenings provided that additional safety when accessing the grounds. I'd say that the condo is perfect for vacationers who want to be able to relax away from the noise in town and at the same time be a short walk away from the nightlife of Tamarindo! The property management company and owner were very responsive to all emails. The owner mailed me a packet of information about local attractions and things to do. She also gave us great pointers on different surf breaks up and down the coast. Overall, it is a perfect place to stay when visiting Tamarindo! Thanks, Heidi!
