Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had an absolutely wonderful time at this property. Was great amount of space and the pool was so lovely, house was well equipped and updated. Not far from town or beach, but i would recommend renting a golf cart to make it a bit quicker. Yira was a fantastic host. She arranged transportation to and from airport for us and answered all of our questions promptly.
Will definitely be staying here again when returning
Perfect home for a group. Great location and the house has it all
This was our first trip to Tamarindo. It's a small village that is super casual and there is a ton to do there. Everything is within walking distance and the terrain is pretty flat. The house is several blocks from the beach in an area with a lot of big, nice homes. The house is in a great location.
We had more than enough room for our family of five. It was big, open, modern and spacious.
It was clean, and a cleaning lady came in mid-week which was appreciated given that we had tracked a little dirt and sand in due to trips to the beach. The home is beautifully decorated. The pool is warm and clean. The landscaping around the pool felt like a fancy resort- it couldn't have been more beautiful or perfect.
My favorite part was waking up early to the birds and monkey sounds and sitting by the pool with my coffee and book.
We had plenty of towels and appreciated the washer and dryer. They also provided beach towels which was a major plus.
There's a charcoal grill that we used to cook our fresh mahi mahi that we caught on a fishing excursion.
Yira is an awesome property manager. She checked in and helped us with questions and helped us to book local activities. She was proactive and responsive. I felt like she was a personal concierge. She was there to meet us when we arrived and showed us around the house, told us where the grocery stores are located. She made our trip worry-free and enjoyable.
Amazing vacation home - all around!
This was our first trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica as well as our first time renting a home for a vacation and the experience was absolutely amazing. The house was beautiful, modern, had a great location and had plenty of room for our family of six. The house was clean, and beautifully furnished. The pictures represent the home perfectly! The process to book the home was very simple and within minutes of booking our vacation home, Yira reached out to let us know she would be our contact for all our needs. Yira was incredible! Her response time to all of our questions was extremely fast. She helped us in every aspect of our trip. From arranging transportation to booking tours and excursions. She put our minds at ease. Yira greeted us upon arrival, provided us her cell phone number and let us know we could reach out to her any time day or night. The house is located about 10 minutes walk from downtown and another 5 minutes to the beach. There is a brand new grocery store on the way about 7 minutes walk. The house has all the amenities you would expect, including washer and dryer. They also provide beach towels, which is nice as it saved us room in our bags. Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend this property to all!
Perfect Home for your Vacation
This was our first trip to Tamarindo and first time renting a home versus vacationing in an all-inclusive resort. We absolutely loved this home, it was everything the pictures showed and what was described on the VRBO website. It is very clean and very well taken care of. From the moment we booked the home to the moment we left, Yira took care of everything for us. She is truly amazing and makes your vacation seamless. The house is located up the street from the main drag of Tamarindo, but a short walk lands you in the heart of the town with excellent beaches, shops, restaurants and grocery stores. I would highly recommend booking a golf cart prior to arriving for your vacation, we did not and they were all booked until midweek. Once we got our golf cart we were able to explore different beaches and areas of Tamarindo that would have been difficult to reach on foot, but not impossible. Yira booked all of our excursions for the daily trips we wanted to take, as well as our transportation to/from the airport. The house offers all the amenities and kitchen dishes needed to make meals yourself. Beach towels are supplied which was a huge benefit since the pool and beach are right at our fingertips. It was very nice having a washer and dryer also. The garage offers space for 2 4 people golf carts with electric outlets so they can be charged at night and ready for the next day. The housekeeper comes midweek which was great and much appreciated. We had 4 adults and 3 kids in our group and we never felt crowded and the kids enjoyed having their own room together since the one room offers all twin beds. Lastly, the pool was amazing! We all enjoyed the morning time sunshine with coffee and the evening sunsets to cool off after a day at the beach. You will not be disappointed when renting this home for your vacation. Yira will take great care of you and all of your needs. Pura Vida!!!!
Great Vacation Home
Everyone enjoyed staying at Casa Barcelona. This house was beautiful. House was well equipped and extremely comfortable. Did have an issue with a toilet leaking, but once we notified Yira, she had a crew there in a matter of minutes and within an hour the hose was replaced and leak fixed. What can we say about Yira. She was amazing. Her directions to her office were spot on and was there to answer any questions. Yira set up all of our tours and made sure that we had an enjoyable experience. The house is located within walking distance to all of the shops, restaurants, and beach. The Hacinda Robles Canopy Tour was amazing and so was the ATV Tour. Also enjoyed the Sunset Catamaran. On our next trip to Tamarindo we will definitely book Casa Barcelona again.
Yira the property manager, only made the experience even better!
This was our first trip not going to a resort or hotel on vacation. We looked into Tamarindo and found this location. A little worried about using VRBO it was quickly removed by the fast response from Yira the property manager(PM). She answered all our pre booking questions and arranged transportation from the airport to the home and back at a reasonable price.
The home was beautiful! The VRBO pictures online represent the home perfectly, almost every window was a sliding door if you wanted to let the fresh air in, very bright and spacious! As a family of 5 we had enough space to live comfortably without stepping over each other.
The house is a little bit of a walk from the main strip but manageable. With 5 of us and friends staying in other parts of town we rented a golf cart. It allowed us to venture out a bit further than we could on foot. The house has a garage with an electrical outlet to plug the cart in overnight.
We did have a few issues. The water went out for awhile and Yira was on top of the situation sending a maintenance person out. After investigation realized a root damaged the main pipe. It was fixed quickly! Sliding door screen wasn’t working properly, fixed!
I would recommend going to the supermarket and getting your basic food needs for the house.
The house had all you needed to cook in the kitchen, I would recommend bringing your own dishwasher pods. The dishwasher was probably the only item in the entire house that needs to be updated. There were plenty of linen, towels, etc. a washer and dryer to use so no need to pack as many clothes as you would going to a resort since you can wash! Bring some washing machine soap pods!
The back yard was beautiful! The pool was nice and relaxing, the kids enjoyed the pool in the morning while my wife and I had our morning coffee.
This place was absolutely great for the price! We looked at other locations in Tamarindo after returning home. They may be closer to the beach but, this houses, exclusivity and experience would be hard to beat. We will be back because it felt like home! Yira was wonderful I cant give her enough praise! She felt like a friend not a manager!
I would mention more about the town but I really wanted to make sure I covered our experience at the house.
The only thing I didn’t like was the week went by too fast! Next visit we hope to stay 2 weeks. Pura Vida!!!
