All of the rooms in (CLM1) and the master suite have king size beds (5 including the master suite/ which also has a standard pullout couch), plus their is a standard pull out in the largest room on the second floor along with the king size bed (good for parents that want to keep their children in the same room or family members who don't mind sharing).

This large ground floor living area is convertible by a wooden retractable wall, creating a 5th bedroom with a pull out bed and private bath. Also on the first floor is a beautiful new kitchen, with stunning granite counter tops and giant windows that flood the room with tropical sunshine. It is not uncommon to see a troop of friendly monkeys in the trees next to the houses. It is a steal for the price and you'll have a time to remember.

It is located on the 3rd level of (CLM 1). It has a beautiful kitchen and dinning area and large master bath with stack washer and dryer.

The suite has a 220 degree panoramic view of the ocean, Playa Grande (where the sea turtles come to nest), Tamarindo Beach (where professional surf lessons are available), the tamarindo bay, the Estuary (full of abundant wild life), La Playa Pinilla (famous for the Pinilla Golf Resort) and Captains Island. The beach is a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive. There is plenty of night life and great food and tourist attractions!!!!!!

Awesome house...perfect spot !!!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best trip I’ve made to the Costarican beaches. We’re a family of 15 and decided to check out the Tamarindo area in Guanacaste , Costa Rica. We chose Lucky Monkey based on location, space and luxury. Best decision ever, this house is awesome, there’s space for everything , huge rooms all have bathrooms, spacious balcony’s with perfect sun set views, big kitchens and living areas, huge terrace for BBQs next to a perfect pool in the middle of the property. It’s absolutely what your looking for to enjoy a beach vacation, this house is also located 5 min from Tamarindo beach and no more then 30 mins from beautiful beaches like , Avaellanas, Playa Grande, Brasilito, etc, make sure you visit these places, you’ll enjoy it !!!

I highly recommend this house.

The owner never reported our reservation and so the problems started piling

  • 1 of 5

What happens when the owner never reported our reservation and the office won't give you the keys to the property? We were a party of 15 including children and at 8 pm we had no place to go.

Finally somebody did something about it and we were given the keys.

The house is dirty, bathrooms that doesn't work and they smell terrible, half the blinds are on the floor, the garage was in use by other customers...

It's a shame because the house has a lot of potential but owners and administrators have done not much to make it a good experience for us.

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

We are a large Costarican familly who spent our new year vacation here and had a great time. The place is spacious, with so many rooms and bathrooms making it really comfortable for big groups. The views are fantastic, and the location of this place made it really easy for us to go to the different places this beautiful area has to offer. We plan to go again, and we are all looking forward to it. Totally recommend it!

Wonderful time

  • 4 of 5

I looked for a long time for a rental for my family as I wanted a more intimate setting for my vacation. This house was perfect. The management took care of every issue that came up. The house and pool area are very nice. Glad the driver pointed out the shortcut thru the woods to get to town. That was a tremendous help. The 1 thing that I have issues with falls under amenities. 1st- a small jaccuzzi tub is not a jaccuzzi. That is a jetted tub. Other than that we had a great time and I would recommend this property to anybody. Thanks RPM

Endless, beautiful beaches,

  • 2 of 5

We rented both homes for our group, beautiful homes in need of repair. We were handed 14 keys without any designation. The doors to bedrooms did not close correctly, blinds were missing in each of the 9 bedrooms and living rooms, 1 of the showers is broken so you cannot take a shower, refrigerator in LM1 does not work properly and air conditioning in LM1 is not adequate. There are other structure repairs which need to be made and red ants were a problem. Unfortunately, there was a break in and 2 computers and a cell phone were stolen. The slider door was actually removed from the frame. The homes are close enough to town and beach to be very convenient, the place just needs some work and additional security measures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great value, lots of space.

Reynaldo P from Key West, Florida recommends this property

Stayed 6 days in February, 2010

Website pictures don't do any justice to the house it was very spacious. Walking to town is a short 10 min. walk. A cab ride back will cost about $4-$5 but renting a vehicle is the way to go, it makes it a lot easier to get to the supermarket and such.

The town is being develop very quickly, and you can experience monkeys hanging out on the trees outside the house, at the same time a couple of small field mice made their way inside the house, this being a huge no no in the States but taking our surroundings into consideration is to be expected.

Great place!! I highly recommend it!!
