Nice beach-view condo
"This is a good condo for family vacation. The views of the ocean from the balconies and bedrooms are very nice. The kitchen is functional.
There was an initial setback as the water was turned off. This was a major inconvenience as we arrived at 10 pm after a five hour road journey with three kids. No one could not use the bathroom until the next morning. The rental property management company knew of our arrival from owner/VRBO as well as my own phone conversations with them, so this was unexpected. Throughout this, the owner was helpful and worked to get the water turned on at 6:15 am instead of 8 am that the emergency contact had provided as the ETA. No one at the property management company apologized when I stopped by their office the next day with another question about the location of the safe - they didn't know where the safe was. These and few other things did not leave a good impression on us about the people that manage the property.
After the effect of this initial experience wore off, we were able to appreciate the condo. The swimming pool is nice, the beach right next to the condo is awesome for quiet strolls and collecting shells. The sunsets are gorgeous. We had a very good time staying here. Tamarindo is the nearest town for activities like surfing, swimming, renting a car, dining and so on. The condo is about a few minutes drive from Tamarindo downtown. Most people either spoke enough English or we able to get by with very limited Spanish. The people are very friendly and the places felt quite safe. The condo has security guards who were helpful and nice. Right next to the condo there is a small grocery store for basic necessities.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and if we visit Tamarindo area again would consider staying at this condo again."

"WOW!! The views of Potrero bay from the penthouse suite were magnificent!! Mike & Irma are truly wonderful people. Breakfast every morning was a culinary delight. Mike's knowledge of CR and passion for its flora and fauna were immensely appreciated by my husband and I.
We can't wait to return to the "Twin Dolphins" in 2016.

"We just came back from our trip to Playa Hermosa yesterday. The condo is exactly as described. It is spacious, clean, and great location. Our family of 4 had more than enough room to spread out! Playa Hermosa is a small beach town. We went in July (rainy/low season) and were often alone on the beach even over a Costa Rican "school break" weekend. Johan was very responsive and his group in Playa Hermosa is on call if you need them. I accidentally locked up our things in the safe and couldn't get it open. They were over within 5 minutes to help me out.
Hope we can visit again!"

"we really enjoyed our Christmas holiday time with the family in this spectacular home and setting. We loved the Spanish style to the home. We were happy spending the entire day- starting with coffee in the rockers overlooking the jungle with all the birds on the top balcony. We loved the pool and patio area in the afternoons- very hot, though- but just the way we like it. We had our cocktail hour on the balcony at kitchen level, watching the sunset and enjoying the increased activity in the jungle. We enjoyed viewing the howler monkeys in the trees and all the different birds. In the evenings, we had our dinner by the bbq at another balcony/patio with the large round table . It cooled down in the evenings- but we were happy to use the air conditioning in the bedrooms at night. Going to the beach was simple- a ride down the hill to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Very simple to park along the beach edge, where we set ourselves up for the day with chairs and cooler. It's a bit of a ride into town so we tried to stock up as much as possible. The road can be quite steep up to the house so a 4 wheel drive is useful. At this time of year, it was dry and not a problem. The home and location met all our expectations and made for a very memorable vacation in Cost Rica!"
