  • Family Bonding Time

    "Renting the villa through Kenny and Annick was a breeze. We emailed, made two payments and voilà, we were booked! Getting to the house was also a breeze. Our driver (we had booked in advance through the owners of the Casa) was waiting for us at the airport. He took us to the office where we retrieved keys to the condo. He dropped us off at the gate of the complex. Nelson, the guard on duty that day, helped us figure out the keys and helped with the luggage. The condo was ready for us: it was air conditioned, clean, furnished, had fresh linens and had every kitchen tool needed to cook our meals (except maybe some bbq tongs, which we ended up buying) plus some spices. The kids decided who would get which room and then changed into their bathing suits. We were off to the beach!!! Tamarindo Beach is very large at low tide and quite long. Walking it from one end to the other takes about 20 minutes if you walk briskly. The walk from to the condo to the beach is so short that the kids would often return to the condo during the day for a break from the waves. We took advantage of the pool at the complex where most of the neighbours were Canadians like us. The ocean water is so warm and it didn't even rain once. Every morning, my husband and I would get up early to walk on the beach. We either walked up to the Estuary or to Langosta beach all the way to the Barcelo. Either way, we would pick up a few items from the grocery store before returning to the condo. We would put together a nice breakfast which we ate at the patio table as we did all our other meals. We usually shopped at the Super 2001 and the Langosta store but went twice to the auto mercado. Food in Tamarindo is much more expensive than we had anticipated but we saved by eating at the house. The house is very well situated: close to the beach, walking distance to center of town and adjacent a lush park where monkeys like to hang out. Visiting the garden were racoons (in the evening for a quick hello), a few geckos, iguanas, birds, huge grasshoppers and a few bats. Every morning, the gardener would hose down our patio area and water the plants, leaving the area clean and welcoming. A cleaning lady came 3 times during our 12 day stay. Though we kept the condo clean, she made it so much cleaner by washing the floors, the towels, the sheets (once during the stay), cleaning the counters and dusting, cleaning the washrooms. The staff was always very friendly. We felt safe at all times."

  • A quiet place in Tamarindo

    "We visited Tamarindo with our three teenagers. I would like to make a distinction between the house and the service from the property management company. Bob and his staff were very helpful and really made our stay in Tamarindo easy and enjoyable. They are a 5/5. Our flight arrived late, but Bob was there to meet us with tips and reccomendations. Our tour questions were answered quickly and booked efficiently. Wonderful service! The house has a comfortable layout and the pool is a real treat on those hot afternoons. Air con, washer and dryer and wifi are great to have and all worked. The location is very quiet, which is nice. The house, however, could use some updating. There are stains on the living room couch, and the beds are not comfortable. The loungers by the pool were rotten, but the staff replaced them when I pointed that out. One of the air con units had leaked all over the floor, but maintenace was there quickly to fix it. One thing the picture doesn't convey well is the front yard is really just the pool and it is in the front of the house that overlooks the cul de sac. Its high enough and there is a small hedge so there is privacy. The area is pretty quiet as well. It's not a quick walk to the beach and if you have little kids you'd want to consider that. It's a balance between a quiet neighborhood and proximity to the beach. The walk down the road is very scenic and enjoyable. Overall, we certainly enjoyed our stay and I very much appreciated the manager's service and on our next trip to Costa Rica I will be contacting Pura Vida Property Management. The location is quiet and amenities are convenient and the house is clean. Owners of the house need to do some sprucing up considering the asking price of the rental."

  • Great Place, Great Manager

    "This was a beautiful house. The four bedrooms are all like suites, only 2 units have to share a bathroom. One unite stands alone like a carriage suite. The house is on a road outside Tamarindo. It was a very peaceful stay. The manager, Julius couldn't have been nicer. Great communications via email and in person. He was always just a phone call away."

  • Wonderful home in Pinilla

    "My family of 6 and two other families (13 in total) recently stayed at this awesome house in Pinilla. The house and location met all our high expectations of a property in Pinilla. Close to beach access, beach club, restaurants and a bunch of amenities around the area. The golf course is right behind the house. Tamarindo (very famous beach and surf town) is a close drive away, so restaurants, night life and supermarkets are around the corner. Our party really enjoyed the pool and outdoor rancho, which is fully equiped with a BBQ, fridge, microwave, etc. Pool table at the lower level was also a big plus. The house is huge and it offers several living areas to enjoy. Highly recommended for large families or gorups of friends. Overall a great stay. We will definitely come back!!!"
