  • Make Sunrise Your Tamarindo Vacation Relaxation Headquarters!

    "My friend and I enjoyed a Tamarindo vacation during the first week of September 2014. We stayed right across the street from the beach in the Sunrise Condos. A beautiful view of the spectacular pool as well as a glorious blue ribbon of ocean and swaying palm trees could be enjoyed while sipping cocktails on thirty eight's balcony. Sunrise Condos was a perfect base of operations...we'd stroll to grocery stores to pick up breakfast and lunch provisions...and then dine out...many delicious restaurants within walking distance, all featuring outdoor dining (which I love) on covered patios or terraces. Nothing like enjoying a piece of homemade coconut cream pie while watching the surf crash in the moonlight! I would definitely recommend our accommodations...thirty eight was clean, comfortably furnished with plenty of closet space and towels, and featured little extras that made it feel like home...a beach bag to tote your stuff to the beach, a small paperback "borrow one, leave one" library, and recent issues of several popular magazines. Ate most meals on the balcony...comfortable cushioned wicker furniture, a balcony ceiling fan, and the great views mentioned above made it hard to leave. The kitchen is fully stocked with ample glassware, dishes, glassware, more pots and pans than you'll ever need with all the great Tamarindo restaurants, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, and blender. The pool is clean and the cascading waterfall feature (wonderful for a shoulder massage!) lifts it several steps above ordinary. Sunrise features a 24-hour security gate to add to your sense of comfort and well-being. One of the most relaxing vacations I've ever been on...you won't be disappointed!"

  • Perfect Setting, Home, and Owners

    "Our rental home was perfect for us. Two bedrooms. We had the girls use the master bedroom because of the extra futons. Both bedrooms had decks, bathrooms, showers, and ACs, which we did use at night. The first night I thought someone was moving furniture in the house, but it was the male howler monkeys making their presence known. They sound like gorillas!! Soooo cute though. Downstairs is spacious with a big dining room table, a living room, and fully supplied kitchen. There was a kitchen bar with two stools. Internet and country phone service was provided by the owner. Internet service was unpredictable. At times, we borrowed the wifi signal from the condos next door but that was spotty as well. I didn't care but my wife and one daughter were frustrated. If Internet or texting is important to you, then it may be worth researching options with your cellular company. I was looking forward to disconnecting from the world, so I did.........except for the occasional Facebook post or sports update. The house is very secured with multiple locks, a fence, security system, and neighboring security guard for condo association, which is where you have pool access. What a nice pool as there is shade and fresh water when you need a break from the beach. I awoke around 600am every morning out of habit. My daughter and I would take a run on the beach or on the roads. The house is a 1 minute walk to the Pelada beach, which is quiet, beautiful and with big waves. Great boogie boarding. Some surfing but there is a lot more surfing on the next beach, to the south, Guiones, which is more than a mile long and has a lot of action going on compared to Pelada beach. There is short trail to connect the two beaches. Groceries. We opted to eat out almost all meals. In hind sight, we should have visited the local vegetable and fruit stand on day one. Fresh fruit for our morning smoothies and veggies for our lunch salads were within minutes but we didn't stop there until day 5. Go there on Day 1! Mark and Paige are top notch owners. Communication during the whole rental agreement process and before/during our stay was exceptional. Eduardo, the local manager, is nearby for any day to day issues, but we had none. Could write more but space is limited. Thank you Paige and Mark! Pura Vida!"

  • Nice house, great location

    "Villa Buena Vista is a lovely property in Potrero Costa Rica. Jorge the property manager is very helpful and the directions to the house were great- thanks! Ernesto and Anna Maria(?) his wife are wonderful and are on the property full time to help out, clean, etc. Loved the house dogs- rusty, jack, Skye and I forget the big ones name- they are so friendly and they hung out with us on the deck every day! The house itself is set up on a hillside with amazing views, 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 1 half bath. Can walk to the beach but it is about a 1/4 mile so we drove- beaches are nice and pretty private. The house has a pool which we used every day- covered cabana, table & chairs and barbecue at the pool site. Birds all over and beautiful parrots everyday. Monkeys too! Only suggestions I would make- can use some new pots and pans for cooking - they are old and the non stick is pretty much all worn off. Need a new toaster too- it started sparking and did not toast well! Overall a nice place to stay Air conditioning in the bedrooms but not the living areas, however there are ceiling fans and even though the temperature was in the 90s during the day, it was much cooler in the morning and evening, besides who spends time in the house when outside is awesome! We spent all our time on the deck enjoying the view and birds. Table and chairs on the deck so we always ate out there. Potrero is nice and quiet and a short 30 minute drive to Tamarindo if you feel the need to see a real touristy beach town and Playa Flamingo is a short 10 minute drive- smaller than Tamarindo but still enough restaurants, shops and bars"

  • Wonderful Holiday!!

    "We initially started planning our Holiday with Pam and had nothing but exceptional customer service; she was so prompt at responding to any questions or concerns we had and made sure everything was taken care of before we arrived. Upon arrival we were in awe of the beautiful accommodations; private rooms and on suites as well as a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean with comfy lounge furniture. We spent a lot of time at the pool and beach which was only a two minute walk from the Villa. All the staff were Amazing! The chefs prepared delicious meals, baretender served up great drinks; even none alcoholic ones for the kids. The pool was always clean and laundry was returned washed and folded within an hour of leaving it out! If you want an exceptional, all-inclusive and relaxing Holiday this is the spot! I look forward to visiting Barefoot Vacation Villas properties in the future. "Pura Vida""
