Brenda Marafioto purchased this Condo in 2017

Why Brenda Marafioto chose Tamarindo

We fell in love with Costa Rica on vacation two years ago. Since then, we have traveled back over seven times with our children to surf, paddle board, and explore all the natural wonders Costa Rica has to offer. Costa Rica surpasses every other destination as it offers something for everyone: beaches, surfing, kayaking, zip lining, fishing, volcano tours, ATVing, golfing, horseback riding, and so much more. You can travel and enjoy the ocean all year round as Guanacaste is the driest Province of CR, so it usually doesn't rain all week in rainy season. It is a safe and friendly country where everyone is helpful and most speak at least a little English. When searching for a home, Casa de Valencia always stayed on top of the list of condos we visited. It is steps away from the beach, so it's great for a morning stroll or to catch the famous Tamarindo sunsets! It is close enough to walk to town but far enough from the disco club of downtown so you have peaceful night. The pool and garden is very luxurious and it feels like COSTA RICA!

The beach access was right across the street and I'd say less than 100 meter walk total. The location was great, easy to get into the heart of Tamarindo but secluded enough for some peace and quiet.

                                                                      Very clean house

                                                                      Kids have a blast in the pool and at the beach!

The owners were accessible and responsive. The house was clean and comfortable and we all enjoyed it. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The guards on duty were an added bonus. Wireless only works in the main area of the home, but we were happy to have it.

                                                                      Would definitely stay here again!

The house was extremely comfortable, the social area of the pool was awesome as well. This is definitely a place we will go back to. Fully recommended!
