Recent Tamarindo reviews
"These pictures accurately reflect the property. The pool is nice, the house is very nice. There were 8 of us, 2 families and it was comfortable. It's within walking distance to Tamarindo. We did have an issue with the stove but Management fixed it right away. We had a great time and I would book this house again if we ever get back to Costa Rica. Pura Vida."

"Our stay at Casa Paquita was absolutely amazing! Invited by our son-in-law's family for a birthday celebration, the nine in our group had plenty of space and amenities to make every moment spectacular. Noemi, the housekeeper, made our stay especially remarkable. From awakening each morning to her delicious coffee, to bedding down each night in our spotless room, she made every waking moment a pleasure. She never tired of our constant requests to help us learn Spanish and we had many warm conversations with her to learn about the local culture. At our request, she made many excellent recommendations of little-known places to visit and prepared mouth-watering local dishes for us. She did our laundry, arranged massages by pool and even located a fishing pole for my husband to use on Casa Paquita's picture-perfect beach. Her warm, nurturing nature made her feel like a member of my family and I already miss her and Smokey, the house dog, greatly.
Casa Paquita itself is beautiful. The warm woods of the rounded doors and stairway show meticulous craftsmanship, as do the beautiful tiles throughout. The house is ingeniously built to harness the ocean breezes, from the three story fountain surrounded by the beautifully crafted staircase to the vented eaves in the upper stories and bathrooms. Although air conditioned throughout, conservation of energy has been thoughtfully incorporated into the construction of the home.
The infinity pool is well maintained daily and is a wonderful viewpoint from which to enjoy ocean views in pampered comfort. It was the central gathering place for the entire family throughout our stay. We enjoyed beverages using ice from the ice maker with no ill effects, either. The grounds are beautiful, perfectly manicured and shade portions of the pool. We even spotted the occasional iguana and monkey in the trees.Two outdoor showers were beautifully and conveniently located to wash the sand from our beach-soaked bodies.
Casa Paquita was easy to locate and only a short drive from Tamarindo. A small store is within walking distance and we were centrally located to explore the local beaches. The gated drive and courtyard made us feel safe and cozy.
Overall, Casa Paquita is a magical place to relax, refresh and unwind due to the Pura Vida spirit of Noemi and the other Costa Ricans, like Diego and Luis, our guides to Arenal Volcano National Park and Eddie and Roberto who guided us on the horseback ride of our life at Playa Conchal. The memories a"

"Every 2yrs we bring both sets of parents and a lifetime style trip. This year it was Costa Rica. We spent 8 days in CR w our last 3 here. It was the perfect way to end an amazing trip. The condo was located where you'd want it. Close, but still secluded. The management team setup surfing lessons, paddle board, private chef, all fantastic.
The beach in front is great for exploring, tide pools at low tide to enjoy."
