Recent Tamarindo reviews
Very comfortable home away from home
"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."

"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."

"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."
