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."

"We had such a great time in Costa Rica last week. Wish I was there now! Thanks to Val for opening up your home to my family. We all loved your place! It was so nice and way nicer then the pictures you have online. My wife who is fussy about everything loved it there. You had everything we needed. I even left a few extra beers for the next person that comes. Truly wonderful accommodations. We tried all your restaurant recommendations too. They were all good. Only negative I could find was the ride from the main gate (10 min) to the 2nd gate but in the end it was worth it. The surfing is awesome at "little hawaii" which you have the easiest access to from this villa. We had some much space too in your condo we truly felt like we were right at home. Loved the beach club there which you need to pay $20 per family. You can use it for a meal credit, drink credit or whatever you want. We went there everyday with the kids and they loved the pool. For me it was ideal because I could surf and hang with my family and not feel like I was leaving them for long."

"My family and I had a great stay at Sunrise 12 penthouse. The views are great, the location ideal (right across the street from the beach and in the center of town). We were able to quickly get to anywhere we needed to be. The condo was great--comfortable furniture, GREAT beds, and great kitchen. Although we chose to eat out a lot, the kitchen is fully equipped to make your own meals at home. I greatly appreciated the kindness and patience of the team at Blue Water Properties/Blue Water Adventures who help set up our airport transfers and tours. Great service, efficient! We'll be back for sure! Pura Vida!"

"We stayed at Ibis #8 for 2 weeks, from Jan 4-18th. As other reviewers have pointed out, the unit itself is very well appointed with high-end appliances, sturdy furniture and all of the modern conveniences one would expect from an upscale condo. The condo itself does not have any amenities onsite (pool, gym, etc.) - these are located directly across the street at the Langosta Beach Club. Ibis guests have full access; the club is also features one of the nicer restaurants in the area. This is the quieter, more scenic section of Tamarindo beach, which may appeal to those seeking a slower pace.
Sebastian (the concierge) was very friendly and approachable. He always greeted us with a warm smile and was great with our kids. Bob handled a few issues that came up and he took care of them promptly. The security/groundskeepers/housekeepers were all very friendly and helpful. One of them kindly fixed a broken strap on our luggage, which we really appreciated. The crew at the Langosta Beach Club were also very fun and energetic.
Some might find the location a bit remote (you will need to drive or walk 5-7 mins to get to Tamarindo, down a busy dirt road with no sidewalks) but we liked the fact that it was quiet and relatively secluded. We were a bit disappointed with the dust and road noise that came from the adjacent Langosta Road. Apparently a paving project is imminent, so the dust issue may be addressed soon. Nevertheless, if you are a light sleeper, I would suggest looking for a unit facing the rear of the building, which faces the Tamarindo Preserve.
The unit boasts comfy beds, a pull-out sofa sleeper, nice plumbing fixtures, tasteful decorating, modern appliances and three separate decks. The WiFi is not particularly strong - barely enough for Netflix, fine for e-mail and social networking. There is no VoIP line in the unit, so you will need to rely on mobile or Skype for making calls.
Overall, this unit served us well and we were not disappointed. We would recommend it to others, seeking a quieter location in an small & modern building."
