Best ocean views from all patios
"Just returned from a wonderful week. Our penthouse unit was perfect for our group. We were celebrating our sons 50th birthday. He brought a friend with him to enjoy some of the activities in Costa Rica. The constant sound of the ocean will be missed. The apartment is well equipped and quite comfortable. One suggestion to the owner would be to have flash lights in the 3 bedrooms should the power go out which is common in Costa Rica. We lost power only once for a couple of hours. Cleaning service came twice during our stay which was an unexpected bonus. Security is very tight within our complex...guards on duty 24/7... The pool area is great place to meet other guests and owners who will share with you best of tours to take. Rental agency can arrange all the tours. I do think a car is a must since town is more than a mile down a dirt road...cab costs $5 should you not have a car. All and all we loved the location of this unit and would stay there again."

"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."

Great condo, great property managers and unbeatable location
"My family of four spent five days at this condo. Pictures don't do it justice. Inside is modern, wifi strong and balcony view over the pool to the ocean is fantastic. You get to use all of the resort amentities which is a big plus. Location in the heart of Tamarindo is perfect to do and see whatever you want to do. Property managers were great to work with, even let us stay through the day or last day since we had a late flight and no one had rented it for the day we were leaving. Extremely nice and helpful. Provided for a wonderful vacation."

"Our stay was truly one-of-a-kind! The views from the Diria were incredible. The units provided everything we could have needed. The staff took great care of us. We are forever grateful for the great cleaning service they provided - clean fresh towels, neatly-made beds, and clean dishes. The really took care of us, to ensure we had a great stay. One of our friends organized a trip for using Blue Water and our trip was seamless. Tony took great care of us and made this one of the most memorable trips ever! We will definitely be coming back and asking for Tony again. He was so attentive and provided a great experience for us in Tamarindo. He went above and beyond his work and we are truly grateful for his hospitality. With such a big group i was worried about how our activities would play out, but he was able to accomodated all of our needs. I highly recommend staying at the Diria, the views alone are remarkable, and using Blue Water (ask for Tony)!"
