Six Stars !
"Five stars is not enough. The property is pristine, the breakfasts are outstanding, and you are walking distance from a vibrant town with many English speakers. Jolene and Gary go out of their way to make sure you have all that you need, and ensure that you have a wonderful time. Just imagine that you are being hosted by some of your closest friends whose every desire is to make your visit a remarkable get away - that is who Jolene and Gary are! They will give you details of the best places to eat, play, and enjoy. They are from California and have lived in Villa Andalucia for 15 years - no language barrier for English speakers and no shortage of knowledge about Costa Rica. Their son Brooks is very personable and will take you to great snorkeling spots and teach you surf boarding and spear fishing. A great excursion is the river boat tour of the wildlife at a nature preserve about an hour away - crocodiles, white face monkeys, iguanas, native birds, howler monkeys. It also includes a hands on cultural tour of restored dwellings and historic early period cooking, sugar cane production, that was well done and fun."

Good way to see how the locals live on permanent vacation
"My wife and I visited Casa Boaz on our honeymoon and had a good time in Tamarindo. We stayed in the Casita Romantica, which was plenty of room with a full kitchen and bathroom. The property itself is great for nature lovers, as there is wildlife all over the property, which you will want to become comfortable and acquainted with if you're going to enjoy Costa Rica, because it's everywhere. The pool was nice and cool and the outdoor shower was key. Dee was kind enough to allow us to use the surfboards for a few days, and we had a great time at the beach. She pointed us in the direction of some very good restaurants that you likely wouldn't find otherwise. She was very helpful.
Casa Boaz would likely be perfect for a large group of people who wanted to stay together, but also wanted their own privacy. The property isn't too far from the town, and as long as it's not raining (muddy roads), it's not that bad of a walk. Otherwise, I'd rent a car, bike or ATV to zip around to some cool spots. Thanks again, Dee."

"Horizontes Del Mar was the perfect property and location for us. We were a party of 7 adults 32-39 years old and it was spacious enough for all of us. The condo itself is decorated beautifully and what makes this unit so special is the private sun roof deck with BBQ grill. We had the perfect sunset view and saved money by cooking and barbequing as much as possible. We would all definitely come back and stay in the same unit. The pool and beach is right there and very accessible and so is the town either by walking or taking a very short taxi ride. The staffs at Pura Vida Luxury Condo are very nice, attentive and helped us with the best experience possible. We would also recommend staying 2 weeks if possible as the week flies by. Thank you Bob and staff for a wonderful vacation!"

"My husband and I had a lovely two weeks .
We had the privacy we desired , access to the beach club
and appliances that worked .
Close enough to everything but far enough for a quiet oasis.
The private garden and dipping pool were a pleasure ."
