Recent Tamarindo reviews
Tamarindo in March fantastic
"I echo the other reviews in stating this house and location are great. The house is up the street a block from the main strip through a small town. The house was perfect for our two families of 10 total, beds were great. A/C was great and pool area wonderful for hanging out. Modern grocery was five minutes away, and town was small but very laid back with lots of options to eat. We liked we could put both rental cars in the garage and come and go with two sets of keys and garage door opener. Almost every morning the howler monkeys would come through the trees which was a huge bonus. We cooked in the big kitchen several times and maid service was nice to have. W/D made clean up from the beach easy. The beach was walking distance and you can rent chairs and awnings right there as well as beers and sunset empenadas. Truly a relaxing time watching the kids boogy board and surf. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Next time I will really debate whether we needed rental cars, hardly used them."

"We stayed at the condo, for 2 1/2 weeks, and were able to get the feel of the condo, building, and the community. All were very relaxed, safe, and made us feel 'at home', in an exotic country. The condo lacks for nothing, with lots of extras, in the way of a paper-back library, storage room with all sorts of toys and beach items, and even a full spice rack, for your exotic cooking nights.
Its about a 20 minute hike into Tamarindo, but as you can do most of it along the beach, it is hardly noticeable. If you don't mind a little walking, you don't need a car. WE would definitely stay here again."

"We rented the Casita for a week for our honeymoon. It was positively wonderful! Very peaceful, great location. The Casita (studio tree house) is very comfortable - kitchenette has everything we needed (microwave, stove, toaster oven, fridge, sink, coffee maker, etc) and there is a nice gas grill in the patio below the house. Donna was very helpful in arranging transfers and helping us get set up - she also suggested that Jose (driver for transfers) stop with us to get groceries on the way from airport, which was super useful. Later on, we found very good quality groceries at the auto-mercado across town (walked there, took a taxi with the groceries to come back). The beach is clean and beautiful, water wonderfully warm, and just a perfect little walk up the beach to great yoga studio, shops, restaurants, etc. We would totally love to return here another time - to rent the casita or the house. Lovely!"

"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."
