  • Paradise

    "Congratulations! If you are reading this review, you have just made the best discovery you will ever make. My husband and I found Casa Doshack four years ago, and we have returned for longer and longer stays each winter since that time. It is truly a perfect little cottage in the midst of a tropical paradise. Located directly on the quiet end of a long, beautiful beach, Casa Doshack has been (and will continue to be) a wonderful place for us to relax, recharge, and enjoy a peaceful break from our busy lives at home. Here is a sample of our typical day at Casa Doshack: We rise early and take a run or walk on the approximately 1½ mile beach, which is nearly deserted at sunrise. Then we drink coffee and visit as we sit in rocking chairs on the veranda, which looks out over the ocean. We spend the mornings reading or writing or taking pictures of the exotic wildlife, which surrounds us in the beautiful garden. We usually go for a swim in the ocean or take another walk along the beach. Then we prepare lunch in our fully-equipped kitchen and eat at the big table on the veranda, or we wander down the beach to one of the many restaurants in Tamarindo. After lunch, we have time for more reading or we take a snooze in one of the hammocks in the lanai on the edge of the property overlooking the beach. Sometimes we go on an excursion in the afternoon, or we stroll into town to pick up groceries, visit the Farmer’s Market, or shop at the many boutiques and gift stores lining the streets of Tamarindo. We always make time for another swim and another walk. At dusk we make our way to the beach for a view of the gorgeous sunset. In the evening, we prepare dinner on the grill and dine on the veranda or stroll along the beach one more time for dinner at a restaurant. We look forward to settling into our comfy bed where the sound of the ocean and the feel of the breeze lulls us to sleep. Kathy Doshack, the owner of Casa Doshack, goes out of her way to take care of her guests, arranging activities and transportation and offering great advice and information. Her cheerful housekeeper Illeana keeps the house in order and will cook wonderful Costa Rican meals upon request. The friendly gardener Manuel entertains us as he maintains the pristine garden. To give an adequate description of the virtues of this wonderful place would take many more paragraphs, but you really need to experience Casa Doshack for yourself to understand its magic."

  • Retreat like Property!

    "We have traveled extensively through Costa Rica and have now found our favorite place in Nosara/Playa Guiones: Casa Radl! This property has it all. It is safe, which is an absolute MUST in Costa Rica, it is right by the beach, it is reasonably priced considering it sleeps up to 12 people, it has a huge pool with an outdoor lounge/kitchen/dining set up for a large group, there are bicycles provided to get around, the housekeeper and gardener are loyal and so helpful and one feels secluded even though the walk to local restaurants, markets and shops is a short one. Casa Radl is the perfect retreat for anyone who enjoys tropical living."

  • Great Condo in Tamarindo

    "Our family stayed 5 nights in Tamarindo in July. We loved the layout of the condo and the resort amenities were perfect. The condo was close to some great restaurants all within walking distance. We didn't use the hotel restaurants as there were too many great choices nearby."

  • Casa JJ

    "We were welcomed by the owners, Jorge and Jessie, and given a detailed explanation of the property- security, pool, kitchen equipment, air conditioning etc. They took the time to walk us to the near-by grocery store and introduced us to the owner and security guard we met on the way. We were left with detailed instructions as to procedures to follow in case of any problems. The house was clean, spacious and had adequate supplies of towels, dishes, pots etc. for the six adults present.We would have liked there to be a safe for our documents when away from the house. The short walk to the beach through a jungle/wooded area provided privacy from the beach. The pool was refreshing and used at night as well as during the day to cool off from temperatures of + 36 degrees. With strong winds, we lost power for periods during two days but a short walk to Wil-Mart and Seven restaurant provided us with anything missing. The gas stove and water system still worked. In the backyard we were witness to geckos, howler monkeys, black eagles, parrots and large blue birds and iguanas. We would have appreciated a local bird book. It was quiet and a perfect place to relax and we felt safe. The beautiful beach was surprisingly empty and we enjoyed the lovely sunsets. We definitely would return."
