  • Paradise at Casa Paquita

    "Our group of 4 adults spent the week of February 7th 2015 at Casa Paquita. The property was fantastic with a great ocean front location. The beautiful pool was a center point of activities where we enjoyed swimming, dining, and fantastic sunsets all with beautiful ocean views and well manicured gardens. The back yard is lushly landscaped with paths leading down to a gate to the ocean. The ocean itself is offers fantastic views and is great for exploring, but the waves come ashore across volcanic rock making swimming directly behind the property impossible. There are some small safe entrances to the ocean nearby and large swimming beaches within walking distances. The living area and kitchen were inviting and well maintained. The upstairs patio offers another great area to relax and enjoy fantastic views. The property, inside and out, is multi-tiered with numerous areas for groups to congregate. There were only 4 of us, but we commented how members of a much larger group could find many places to enjoy a little privacy. The bedrooms are very large and comfortable with vaulted ceilings. The construction quality of the house is top notch, but I found the flamboyant use of tiles in the bathrooms is a little over the top. This is definitely not a new house, but it is well maintained. The housekeeper, Nohemy, was unbelievable. She took care of the property, our laundry, dishes, and breakfast all while helping keep a watchful eye on the property. On the last point the property felt very secure with an electric gate securing the front and a tall, but very nice, fence securing the rear. Finally there is a very sweet and aging dog named smokey there who will bark at strangers, but learns guests immediately. Smokey will keep her distance if desired, but we tried to adopt her during the stay and greatly enjoyed the company of this pet. I have to give final credit to the gardener and pool service who were there daily to keep the place looking its best. I would absolutely go back to Casa Paquita and recommend it to anyone considering a trip to this area of Costa Rica."

  • Love it!

    "The condo was an awesome place to stay. close to the beach, close to restaurants, no need to drive anywhere. We meet loads of great people; visitors like myself and so many great local folks. The condo looks like the photos on VRBO. The security is great and they open the door for you every time you exit and return. They are there 24 hours a day. Nothing stolen, and so much gain! Meaning - meeting folks from different countries is a blessing. The world is a great place! Thank you Frederick to allow me to rent your beautiful condo in Tamarindo!"

  • Beautiful Home! Perfect Location! Beautiful Beaches!

    "Vacationed for a week with another couple, our first trip to Costa Rica. All agreed the home met all expectations: clean, well furnished, comfortable, and the splash pool in the back yard was perfect after our walks to town and back along the beach. Appliances, grill, dining room or outside table were very inviting for eating at home, but we passed on any cooking-in to sample the variety of restaurant in Tamarindo, Langosta, and Lolla's and the Marriott on Playa Avelinnas. It was only a short walk cutting though the Capitan Suiza Hotel or the Beach Club to get to the beach, and having access to the club as part of the house was super convenient (pool, food, massage and exercise room). Linda recommended and we used almost exclusively Tamarindo Traval for our excursions and trips around the area. Fantastic week all around."

  • 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!!"
