Tamarindo house description
Welcome to Casa Aigua! Casa Aigua is unlike any other property available for rent in Tamarino, Costa Rica. We just lowered our rate from $550 per night so take advantage! Our property is located only a short 5 minute walk to either the beach or into the heart of town, and features two houses on the property. The main house with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, has been completely renovated to include a very luxurious master bedroom with a master bathroom on-suite. Additionally, there are two separate one bedroom/one bathroom units on the main level of the guest house. These units walk right out to the pool. Our property is then ideal for either a single family or two couples, but can accommodate a larger group of friends or family who want to forgo the standard hotel experience. If you choose to only rent the Main house (from $375 per night), you will need to contact us directly for availability through our main website at: www.staytamarindo.com
Our gated property begins with a prominent cast iron main gate which opens to a beautiful flower lined driveway leading to the property. Once on the property, the main house and guest house are set within native landscaping, featuring banana trees, mango trees, and palms. Centered between the two house is a beautiful pool and jacuzzi. Depending on the season you may just see the howler monkeys cross right over our roof tops!
The entire property features:
- air conditioning
- cable TV
- maid service
- full linens and towels
- washer and dryer
- oven/fridge/microwave/coffee makers
Heather and I first traveled to Tamarindo on our honeymoon, in July 2012. After visiting Tamarindo we fell in love with the town and the people and purchased the home we honeymooned in to be able to share the experience with others. We have since stayed at Casa Aigua four times, and have continued the renovation begun by the previous owners. It is our goal for anyone that stays at our place to realize the beauty of Costa Rica and have as wonderful of an experience as we always do.
Our property is quite spacious and will more than adequately house 14 guests. We have even hosted larger parties if needed, so please contact us in these instances as additional fees are required. We also have an on-site property manager. Charlie, who lives in the upper apartment of the guest house and is there to maintain the property and to better assist you on your visit. Guests are encouraged to have Charlie arrange their tours, ask questions, and even cook a gourmet meal if they are so inclined. Charlie will never hinder your vacation, but is there as a tremendous asset who knows everybody in Tamarindo and can set you up with whatever adventure you seek. Heather and i are very grateful that Charlie is there on all of our visits.
Lastly, please know that we truly do hope that each and every guest that stays with us enjoy their visit. While we are new to VRBO we have already had several guests which have had an incredible time staying at Casa Aigua . The property is beautiful and well maintained. It is also centrally located and is only a 5 minute walk to the beach or to the city center. If you choose to stay with us, we can arrange for transportation for Liberia airport directly to our front door and will promise to deliver an experience that will make you return year after year.
Please do not hesitate to contact us, and please visit our main site.
Our property is perfect for a family vacation, group of friends traveling, or a honeymoon just as we first visited. It goes without saying if you are visiting Costa Rica you should experience several adventures, and charlie will be there to ensure your adventures are top notch.

Very good experience
Very good experience
We were more than pleased with our rooms. Super clean and fresh smelling, clean comfy rooms, super comfy bed, The bathroom was also very nice. Superb customer service. I'd give this place six stars if I could. Charlie the caretaker was great, and helped us arrange adventure trips in the local area including zip-lining and an ATV tour. The rooms where beautifully decorated . The property was very clean and the new hot water system was excellent. The property was very close to everything and i was glad i did not rent a car since, i was able to walk everywhere. The owners were very helpful and even provided a guide about Tamarindo and helped arrange transportation from the airport. It was a great experience for me. Overall the place was as clean as possible and well stocked with all the essentials. There is an unbelievable amount of food, all within walking distance so we didn't need the kitchen.

I recently stayed in Casa Aigua for a family vacation. Casa Aigua is a nice house, with nice details, spacious and perfect to spend some days at the beach! It's close from the beach and Tamarindo downtown. However, when we arrived at the house, Charlie, the property manager, didn't have the best attitude, showed us around, didn't explain anything about the house. Meanwhile, we noticed the house wasn't clean, specially the bathrooms and the jacuzzi and pool. You could notice the water of the jacuzzi wasn't change. It's a shame the trees and green areas of the property aren't well maintained, it looks abandoned. Also, the day we arrived Charlie, told us, that there was a problem with the water, but that we shouldn't worry about it, that the next day someone was coming to fix it. However, the last 2 days we didn't have water! and the other days we barely had water, and when we asked Charlie, he just ignored us and wasn't attentive to this big problem. Since we didn't have any water, we left early morning instead of staying till 2pm ( our check out time) because we couldn't do anything without water or clean ourselves if going to the beach. The owners, who were really communicate and really nice to us while talking via email, should pay more attention to their property and the person they choose to put in charge to, because it's a beautiful house that will loose its complete charm if this continues. And Charlie should have a better attitude when receiving his guests and the needs or questions they have. Thanks!

Owner response: Hello, First thank you for your review and I appreciate your feedback. Heather and I have taken many steps in the last 6 months to try to add to each guest's experience at our home away from home. We have visited the property 6 times in the last year so we are very active home owners. Recently we upgraded the hot water system in the main house to include a 50 gallon solar water heater to provide better water service. Additionally, we added a completely new water pump system and a new pool filter; all in hopes of providing great service to the people who choose to stay in our home. Unfortunately, the local water provider we have a contract with is unable to provide enough water for our property of late and a new contract with the competing local water company has been added to ensure there will not be a shortage of water in the future. We will take note of the not optimal cleaning, and work with the cleaning company to provide a better service. In my opinion, Charlie does an excellent job maintaining the property and waters daily to keep our flowers and trees looking lush and beautiful during the dry season. However, with your review we will gladly discuss this topic with Charlie. It was also brought to our attention that you had 22 or 23 guests on the property when our agreement was for far fewer. The property is not intended to accommodate that many people, and I would suppose some of the short falls you mentioned were a result of your group over using the space. As indicated by your review I am always available to travelers by email and phone and would have appreciated an email from you during your stay so I could have had an attempt to remedy your troubles. We would have gladly had the cleaning service return, since the cleaning they performed the previous day was not adequate. In the past guests have contacted me about items they needed once they arrived and I was able to fix any troubles. Thanks again for the time you took to review our property and the kind words you did say about our spacious home with a great location in the heart of Tamarindo. Cheers Chad

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We first visited Tamarino and Casa Aigua on our delayed honeymoon in July 2012. We fell so much in love with the property, the beaches, the town, and the people that we purchased the place from our friends in October.
Why the Owner Chose Tamarindo:
I may be bias but this property is absolutely amazing. The family before us completely renovated the property, adding a master bedroom and on-suite bathroom in the main house. The entire property is beautifully maintained, and the location is perfect. We have traveled to Tamarindo 4 times since October, and have only had a car 1 time as a result of flying into San Jose. There is really no need for a car with our location unless you appreciate the convenience factor a car provides. We are expecting in June 2013 and hope to move to Tamarindo a couple years after to continue renting our property with a more hands on approach. So anyone who stays is truly staying in our home away from home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property is a gated residence with an on-site manager who is there to make your stay the best it can be. We have every amenity a traveler could hope for including pool side WIFI incase you still have to work while on vacation. It is our goal to make sure everything you could wish for is met.
