Tamarindo Property Description

Welcome to “La Caja de Joyas” or “The Jewel Box”, our family’s private and relaxing vacation property. We are located in the quite community of Playa Langosta, Tamarindo. Playa Langosta is an upscale community with a variety of shops and services as well as an amazing beach suitable for family swimming and some of the best surfing in the area. You can beach walk for miles or just relax and enjoy the amazing climate and rustic feel of the area. A short walk, 2 minute drive or taxi takes you into the commercial center of Tamarindo where there are many more shops, clubs and restaurants lining the beach. When not at the beach book an adventure tour, enjoy an afternoon/sunset sailing cruise, go turtle watching, take in a fitness class or just relax and enjoy a frozen Mojito, one of our favorite guilty pleasures while watching the evening sunsets. Or enjoy some delicious Costa Rican coffee at one of the specialty shops close by. You can also attend the Saturday market where local produce and arts and crafts are offered up.

Let us help you get to some of the best Costa Rican attractions, volcano areas or ancient ruins. There are lots to do for whole family. Our property is a wonderful mix of Spanish style architecture combined with a clean and modern interior. Rental rates include taxes, all utilities and cleaning prior to check in and at check out. The property is also cleaned when unoccupied to ensure it is kept in the best possible condition. Floors are tiled and countertops are granite throughout. The tray ceilings and custom cabinets and doors add additional interest to the overall attractive interior. There is plenty of space in the open concept kitchen/living area with room to relax, entertain or socialize with family and friends.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Almost limitless options for shopping, restaurants, tours, activities of all sorts. Tamarindo is well developed but retains a very rustic non commercial feel to it. Beaches are amazing, weather in this spot on the Nicoya Peninsula is some of the driest, nicest weather in all of Central America. It is what attracted so many to this location after the International Airport was opened in Liberia, about 45 minutes from Tamarindo.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      This condo it is so closed to the white sand beach of Langosta, the estuary and ocean breezes, the sea birds, amazing sunsets, a real natural paradise. The Leather Backs turtles (largest in the world) nest in Playa Langosta and howler monkeys are known to visit our terrace from time to time and are always close by! Langosta is Spanish for lobster and they can be caught right off the local shores.
