  • Great location!!

    "This Condo is huge and was plenty of space for us 3 couples. The location is very close to the beach only about a 10 minute walk. There is a small grocery store at the bottom of the hill which has most of the essentials. The list of food recommendations was great we tried out so many. Las Baulas pizza was great. La Bodega across the street for breakfast and coffee is excellent!!. We did the wok n roll and everyone loved their Sushi. The surf shack has some of the best burgers and fries I have had. All the restaurants have Costa Rican service which is relaxed. Plan on being in any of the restaurants for 2 hours unless you go before 6 so don't arrive hungry! For our local cuisine we talked with someone in one of the downtown shops and she recommended we eat out of the back of this women's car. Apparently all the locals eat what she brings. It is a traditional rice/ beans, Plaintains, a slaw of some type and vege, pork, chicken or beef. She parks under a tree downtown near the Diria Hotel. The cost is only about 4 Us dollars per meal. She is there only at lunch. We got lunch from her twice it was so good. If interested in it ask some of the locals they will direct you. Not well stocked to cook as we only found two spices in the house. We opted to eat out instead. I did find that food is kind of expensive here. A small jar of peanut butter will run you over $6.00 so if you don't want to eat every meal out maybe bring some small items from home. Also we were there at a busy time of year and they seem to have some type of rolling blackouts. We would lose power in the evenings for a few hours so you may want to plan ahead. Also we were in Tamarindo for New Years and we had so much fun walking on the beach at midnight with probably 10,000 others watching the fireworks and all the paper hot air balloons being let off it was so beautiful!!"

  • The Beach Nest ~ Wonderful!

    "We came home (Bellevue, WA) last night from out stay at the Beach Nest. WOW what a wonderful experience. We have been to Tamarindo before but this penthouse is the best. The moment you enter you know you are in a special place. The renovation is first class. We were two couples so the two master suites was perfect, in fact it was hard to rate one suite over the other. The kitchen was great, since we like to cook in for about half of our meals. The living area is beautiful to look at but also very comfortable. The balcony area is a definite plus, since the sunsets are the VERY BEST from there. We watched a sunset from the beach also but it was still better from the balcony. There is balcony for the upstairs suite also which a great place to lounge while reading a book or just taking a nap. It was very warm this year so we appreciated how well the air conditioning worked through out the penthouse. Joel was wonderful as always (our 3rd time with him), he gave us an update on the restaurants and made sure we were taken care of upon arrival and arranged a driver to Liberia for our departure. Nothing unexpected which we really appreciate when traveling. We arranged our own sunset cruise on the Antaris sailboat, I would highly recommend this cruise, it is truly unforgettable; great food, live guitar music and the bean bag chairs on the deck were wonderful. Costa Rica and the Beach Nest...AMAZING!!!"

  • Great unit, grounds and location

    "This was a great rental. The unit is very nice with three bedrooms, a good sized kitchen, comfortable living room and a small table by the window that made for a comfortable computer work station to keep in touch. There is a good washer and dryer and the kitchen was well stocked. The TV was a good size. There were plenty of shower and pool towels. There are two safes that make locking things up easy, which is important for peace of mind. This is one of five units in a gated compound surrounding a pool. It is the only second floor unit, so it is quiet and quite private. If I could change one thing, it would be to replace the french doors between two of the bedrooms with a wall, but if you have little kids the doors are probably better to give them more of a connection to their parents. Outside was even better. There is a large table (seats 6) on a patio overlooking the complex. There are trees all around, so it has a nice view but it also private. We had breakfast there every morning and a few dinners as well. There is also a side patio down a level, with two chaise lounges. Down by the pool there are another few chairs and tables, so there was usually no issue getting a spot to relax. The pool was great for the family. Warm, clean and a good size. A bit too short for lengths, but ever so fun for lounging, made up water polo, diving for object or just floating and watching the iguanas or monkeys. Really idyllic. Finally, the location was just as good as the unit and grounds. It is on a quieter street on the far side of Tamarindo. It is a couple of hundred yards past the bars and restaurants, so it was quiet at night, but close enough that walking into the heart of Tamarindo for dinner was a pleasant stroll. It is across the street from the beach, but there is a pass through right across the street from the compound so you're on the beach in a minute or two. The beach is really nice. Flat, fine sand, with spectacular sunsets. We've rented a ton from VRBO and this was one of the better units as it was great for the unit, the grounds and the location. We loved it."
