Tamarindo studio description

The Garden Apartment is at CASA DOSHACK, VRBO 198773, (Please check this site for fantastic reviews.) and is truly beach front! Located on the southern end of Tamarindo beach, midway between Tamarindo and Langosta, the property has its own tranquil oasis 30 feet above the beach, ensuring absolute privacy. This ideal beach home is situated in a tropical garden in a quiet, secluded neighborhood across from Isla del Capitan and three doors away from Hotel Capitan Suizo, one of the premier hotels in Costa Rica. Yet just a few steps down to the white sands of Tamarindo beach puts you in the best location for sunning, surfing, swimming, kayaking to Isla del Capitan or a moonlight stroll after dinner. Walk two minutes to hotel Capitan Suizo and its world-class restaurant or walk ten minutes to the heart of Tamarindo for shops, restaurants and night life. Best of all, from the rancho of Casa Doshack, you can look out over the whole of Tamarindo bay to check out the waves, watch the fishing fleet go out and return each day or simply read, relax and monitor the daily activity of the beach.

The Garden Apartment sleeps 2. The main house sleeps 4. THEY CAN BE RENTED INDIVIDUALLY OR TOGETHER.

The Garden Apartment is a large studio with air conditioning, a small but fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom and TV. The apartment has its own 200 square foot private patio and separate entrance.
It has hot water, a security box and daily maid service. Off-street secured parking is available on the property.

Enjoy days of swimming or surfing, horseback ride through the surrounding rivers and hills, savor the local fiesta scene, and then relax in a hammock on your private rancho overlooking the beach. All these things and much more are available to guests of the Garden Apartment at Casa Doshack.

                      The garden apartment is located on the nicest part of the tamarindo beach. The swimming is excellent and the surf is great for boogie boarding and surfing especially longboards. The view from the property looks back across the whole bay. The location is spectacular.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1990

                      About the owner: I retired to Costa Rica in 1991 with my husband and daughter, Donna. Donna and her husband, Greidin Lopez, have two daughters, Kati and Mariana, the joy of my life. I love Costa Rica and Tamarindo and all the wonderful and supportive friends I have made here. I am active in community affairs, try my hand at painting and my new interest is photographing birds, and Costa Rica is a wonderful place to do that.

                      Why the Owner Chose Tamarindo:
                      When my husband and I looked at this property, we walked out to the Rancho, looked over the beach and came back and bought it. That took about two hours. I never saw the inside of the house. After actually moving here, my husband and I set about making Casa Doshack out own.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                      Casa Doshack is a beautiful property to really enjoy. Situated 30 feet above the beach, you have the advantage of being on the beach but the privacy of your own special space. The neighborhood is off the main road so quiet and homey. I love to be able to have a cup of tea in the morning on the rancho or invite friends over for a glass of wine at sunset. If I get tired in the day, I will take a nap in the hammock. What could be better?
