About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Casa Doshack is a comfortable family home that is truly BEACH FRONT! Located on the southern end of Tamarindo Beach, midway between Tamarindo and Langosta, Casa Doshack has its own tranquil oasis 30 feet above the beach, ensuring absolute privacy. This ideal beach home is situated in a tropical garden in a quiet, secluded neighborhood across from Isla del Capitan and three doors away from Hotel Capitan Suizo, one of the premier hotels in Costa Rica. Yet just a few steps down to the white sands of Tamarindo Beach puts you in the best location for sunning, surfing, swimming, kayaking to Isla del Capitan or a moonlight stroll after dinner. Walk two minutes to Hotel Capitan Suizo and its world-class restaurant or walk ten minutes to the heart of Tamarindo for shops, restaurants and night life. Best of all, from the Rancho of Casa Doshack, you can look out over the whole of Tamarindo Bay to check out the waves, watch the fishing fleet go out and return each day or simply read, relax and monitor the daily activity of the beach. Your faithful companion will be Missy, a white lab still in her puppy years. Besides delighting our guests she guards Casa Doshack against home raccoons!

Casa Doshack is a 3 bedroom house. The upstairs has two bedrooms and two baths, air-conditioning in the bedrooms, a full kitchen and a 550 square foot terrace for your outside relaxation and enjoyment. Each bedroom has its own private TV and the master bedroom has a private dressing room/bathroom suite. The downstairs apartment is a large studio with air conditioning, a small but fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom and TV. The apartment has its own 200 square foot private patio and separate entrance.

Casa Doshack has hot water, security boxes and daily maid service. Off-street secured parking is available on the property.

Enjoy days of swimming or surfing, horseback ride through the surrounding rivers and hills, savor the local fiesta scene, and then relax with a private massage on the Rancho overlooking the beach. All these things and much more are available to guests of Casa Doshack.
PLEASE NOTE: This a very popular property - I am very blessed to have many returning Guests and the house is often booked solid during the high season. However, I NO LONGER MAINTAIN THE VRBO CALENDAR, so please contact me to check for availability. Thank you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: My name is Kathy Doshack and I have lived in Tamarindo since 1991. I am fortunate to have my daughter, Donna, living nearby and two lovely Costa Rican granddaughters. I have been involved in Tamarindo community organizations for many years and in addition participate in a local art group, walk the beach every morning and regularly walk the hills surrounding Tamarindo.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Langosta, Costa Rica:
I retired to Costa Rica in 1991 settling in Tamarindo when it was still a sleepy fishing village. Although Tamarindo has developed since then offering a wide range of services, the beach itself remains the same, timeless and beautiful. I love the fresh air, warm days and nights and the variety of flora and fauna available here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hanging out at the Rancho is a singular experience. Restful, swinging in the hammock reading a book or watching the world go by on the beach just a few feet below. This vantage point allows for bird watching, iguana sightings and monitoring of the fishing boats going to and fro.
