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!

Loved your property
I was a little nervouse to rent instead of staying at a hotel in a country I hadn't been to before. I am so glad we did. This property is perfect. It is very nicely stocked. The patio is great for coffee in the morning, the other ones great for dinner at night. The pool area is wonderful. Very close to the beach(lots of monkeys on the way) and just a short walk to town. The grill works great. Brenda is easy to reach for anything you need. If you are looking to do a tour Jamal(who she recommends) is fantastic. Would definently come again was very sad to leave!!
Third time and can’t wait to go back again
The house is perfect! It has plenty of towels, dishes, books, movies, .... it has everything. The location is the best spot in Tamarindo. We were minutes from the beach by foot, and town was a easy quick 10 minute walk. If we wanted to have a pool day it was steps away. The property owner was quick to respond to questions and the property managers were accessible 24 hours a day.
I highly recommend Casa Blanca.
All items needed in the beautifully decorated unit. Gorgeous setting on the patio and pool area. Personnel on hand for area upkeep and security monitoring. Maintenance quickly responded when needed. A great guide available for excursions and questions. Cleanliness of beach...beautiful! Fun, laid back restaurants on and off beach. Easy access! Wonderful time!❤️
Thank you Liz! We are so happy you and your group had a great time! We loved seeing your updates on Instagram during all your adventures and beach time - it looked like y'all were having so much fun. We would love to host you again anytime! Pura Vida!
Great place to stay in Tamarindo!
We stayed at Casa de Valencia for 2 weeks over the Christmas holidays this year. The locations is great as it’s close to town and 2 min to the beach. The condo had everything you need for a great Tamarindo vacation. Brenda and Kevin are great hosts and very fast to respond. We stayed with our 3 kids Ages 7,7 and 11 and they loved the pool and easy access to the beach. Can’t wait for our next stay at Casablanca de Valencia! Thanks again Kevin and Brenda for a wonderful trip!
Thanks Ryan! We are so glad you enjoyed your trip. We definitely want Casa de Valencia to be a perfect family destination and do our best to pay attention to all the little things to make the experience great for parents and kids! We look forward to welcoming your family back in the future. Pura Vida!
A Beautiful Home in a Beautiful Country
We spent a few days in Costa Rica before taking our oldest son to college for the first time. We had such a great family vacation and our time in Tamarindo was wonderful. The food, the people, the beaches... all amazing! But one of the biggest reasons we enjoyed it so much was our stay in this beautiful home. We loved everything about Casa de Valencia! The home is ideally located across from one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen and close enough to town to walk to restaurants and shops. It was so comfortable and cozy and had everything needed for a "home away from home." The pool was amazing and the grounds so relaxing. Brenda could not have been more helpful, not only with the home, but with suggestions for dining, activities, and off the beaten path finds. We highly recommend Tamarindo, Costa Rica and staying at Casa de Valencia... you will not be disappointed!
Thank you Kevin, Brenda, and Dana for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had an incredible time and are so grateful for all the help along the way. Cannot wait to go back!
