HAPPY IN TAMARINDO
"Our family of 5 just returned from a week (Nov, 4 - 11) at Casa Blanca. The accommodations were very clean, spacious, well appointed and well equipped. The grounds are gorgeous and we spent many happy hours just relaxing on the covered patio reading, listening to the howler monkeys and tracking the resident iguana. The location is far enough off the beaten track to be quiet but close enough to be convenient. The beach is a short walk across the road. Beware that in November when it is quite rainy the road and beach access are very muddy and beach thongs are the only practical footwear. The condo grounds are gravelled, paved and clean. The management company are very friendly and helpful. We did not rent a car so needed to rent taxis to get groceries and get to restaurants on those very rainy nights. Although there was lots of rain and thunderstorms they were mostly at night and seldom interfered with our plans. The beach is extensive and awesome and the surf calmer than many other locations. A great place to learn to use a surfboard with lots of available instructors. There are a great many reasonably priced restaurants with wonderful food. The area is very multi-cultural and friendly. A special experience was flying back and forth with Nature Air."

"This is my second visit to Villa Paraiso, the first one having been just as amazing. The pictures don't do justice to how gorgeous the house is - our group rarely left the house. Rosa, Luis, and Jesus were incredibly accommodating, making sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I already miss Rosa's delicious breakfasts! I'm counting down to the days when I can take my third trip to Villa Paraiso - if you're looking for a place to stay in Tamarindo, look no further and book Villa Paraiso!"

"House is really nice and comfortable. We had a great time there and it has everything needed to spend a good time among friends. Great host, house is close to Langosta beach, close to Tamarindo beach and location makes it easy to travel around other places in Guanacaste. Fully recommended for a sweet vacation."

"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."
