Playa Langosta house description

Great place to enjoy the Costa Rica experience. See the sunrise as you listen to the Howler Monkeys, exotic songbirds, and breaking waves from the spacious balcony or patio of this newly remodeled and landscaped home. This home has two units, each consists of two bedrooms, two baths, and a living room/kitchen area. Flat screen TVs and WiFi are provided for your use. The bedrooms, baths, living rooms and kitchens have modern contemporary finishes including Venetian plaster accent walls as well as all new appliances, ceiling fans and A/C units. Sleep comfortably in new queen size pillow top mattresses. Relax in the new dipping pool with built-in benches surrounded by palm trees. Park up to 6 vehicles in gated driveways on both sides of this large property.

All this in the quiet community of Playa Langosta, on the outskirts of the resort town of Tamarindo. Walk 50 meters to the neighborhood grocery store, then onto a tree-lined path to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Swim, surf and boogie board in the warm Pacific Ocean and explore tide pools during low tide. Sunsets on the beach are spectacular and the perfect ending to each day.
In Tamarindo you can visit the local shops and restaurants, and experience the nightlife.
You have the option of renting both units if you need additional room for a larger group.
The Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel manages the property and provides concierge service to our guests.

                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About: We are a beach-loving family who have lived in Laguna Beach California for almost 30 years. Our daughter visited Costa Rica, and fell in love with it. She also fell in love with a 'Tico'! They lived together in the property for 5 years before moving to the States. This is our second home, and a home-away-from home for our daughter, son-in-law and grandsons.

                          Why Playa Langosta:
                          For us, Casa Laguna Rica is located in the most ideal spot being so close to the beach, in this quiet community It is far enough away from the busy downtown area, yet close enough to walk to all shops, restaurants, and entertainment. The house is perfect for Costa Rica living. The pool is in a private setting in the backyard, and newly remodeled for the utmost enjoyment.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Location, location, location! The house is just steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. You can check the surf at any time of the day, walk across the estuary and to the beautiful national park/beach and catch every sunset. The nearby resort town of Tamarindo offers a variety of restaurants, bars and shopping.
