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!

What makes this condo unique

Casa de Valencia was previously owned by Kenny and Anick, they kept the place beautiful and in perfect shape. We intend to keep it that way. We want to make your vacation easy and enjoyable, so we have supplied everything we think you could possibly want at Casa de Valencia.

Perfect combination of access and privacy

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at Casa Valencia on our first trip to Tamarindo. 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.

Great place-highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here while visiting tamarindo for a wedding. We couldn't have been happier. 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!
