About Coastal Property Management
Coastal Property Management has managed Casa Ix Chel since the owners purchased it and renovated it for their family getaways to Costa Rica. The company is happy to play host and concierge to numerous groups that make memories at Casa Ix Chel annually.
Coastal Property Management purchased this House in 2006
Why Coastal Property Management chose Tamarindo
The property offers groups lots of space. The two cabinas are completely independent from the main house with kitchenettes and full baths. We love having dinner outside by the pool after firing up the barbecue. Also, we feel blessed to be able to watch Howler Monkeys passing through the trees both in front of and behind the house.
What makes this House unique
This private gated compound is perfect for families & friends who want to vacation together but don't want to give up their privacy. In addition to the spacious main house that sleeps 10-12 people, the two free standing detached studios offer everything for in-laws, couples or teens need (kitchenette, breakfast table, private bath, queen bed, sitting area, TV) so they can spend as much or as little time as they prefer on their own but still be only steps away from the main house and the pool.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Great house great location
Could not have asked for a better house not location. Quick 2-5 min walk to the beach. House was amazing. Pool temperature was just perfect. More than enough rooms and bathrooms for larger groups. Host was just a call away when needed. Gulf cart rentals are a great plus and the house has gate with lock so they are secure over night.
great large home near beach
We had 13 people from 2 families. That house was great for us all and close to town and Playa Tamarindo. The house could use some updating and maintenance. Pool tiles are coming off and garbage disposal broken. Also can use a good deep cleaning. Overall was great
2nd time renting this house
This is our 2nd time renting this home. Great location. Good for a large group. Lots of room to spread out and privacy. Bedrooms all have private bathrooms. Things around the home are a bit worn, but if any problems, contacting the rental agency and they were very quick to respond and remedy the situation. Everyone was welcoming and professional.
We also used their recommended agency for transportation to and from Liberia airport and for arranging a sunset catamaran tour, zip line, and ATV tours. They were great. Always on time to pick up our group and very personable.
Nice to hear it. It was a pleasure to serve you in your 2nd time with us and we hope a 3 rd time. Here you will have a house.
Thank you for your visit.
Great place for large group. Pool very well maintained. Easy walk downtown and to the beach.
Coastal Management easily reached and minor problems taken care of right away. Highly recommended
It was a great pleasure to host Rhonda! She was very kind and friendly also took care of our apartment as it was her own! Big recommendation!
Trip to Costa Rica Stayed at Casa Ix Chel
Our overall impression of this house was disappointing. After reading all of the reviews, we thought we were in for the vacation of a life time. Not so much. This house does not have the charm that it looks like it has in the pictures. We were there on a very busy week so I do understand why somethings were not taken care of but... we also paid prime dollar to stay there this week. I felt like we paid way too much for what we got. The plumbing was backed up the entire week we were there. We called the agency. They sent someone to try to fix it but it was never fixed. The plumbing would back up into the master shower in the main level. The smell was horrible. We could not use that shower at all. The third floor is very hot. It does have an air conditioning unit but it did not work. It was leaking all over. We did call the agency about this but it was never looked at. We could not have anyone sleep up on the third floor. It was way too hot without air. The whole house could use some cleaning and painting. There was a little bit of charm in all of the windows and wood work on the ceiling. We could not get the dishwasher to work so we had to hand wash dishes all week. Not a big deal except that the smell from the plumbing backing up would come up the sink too. It was a horrible smell. The life saver in the house was the pool. The kids loved it. The location was OK. It was a walk to town and to the beach. The towels in the bathroom were not very new or nice. They look like they have been used a few times too many. Again, I would not complain as much as I am but we paid A LOT of money for this house for a week. We had certain expectations and this house did not meet very many of them. I will say that when we asked for the house to be cleaned half way through our stay, the cleaning ladies were great and made the house smell and look more livable. I sure hope the people that stayed after us had better luck with the plumbing and air conditioning.
Cleaning crew and management
From the beginning everything look fine,but the lasts day of our stay one of the cleaning lady's went inside the house and I questioned her who are you?and she said iam here to start cleaning,because the checkout is at 10 am,and the lady was very rude ,complaining that we had use towels totally rediculous.thas what they are there for.they had giving us the uglies towels that you can imagine.the lady had hid the nicer towels and we had found them.
One of the manager on duty was also very rude! And he also came in in a treating me with fines if the family members would not leave I informed him that arrangement was done previously for our departure at a agreed time ,the condition of some of the utility's was very bad condition refrigerator tv air conditioning and some of the patio furniture outside, and this manager ruin my traveling plans he enbarrasss me in from of all my family total disappointment!at the end.
I am sorry for any inconvenience that you felt. Our contractual check-out time is 10 am and as we had other guests coming in that same day at 3pm, it was important for us to start cleaning at the appointed time as I am sure you realize how big the house is. We did agree, after speaking with you, that you would check-out at 12:00 and you actually did check-out at 1pm. Again, I am sorry for any inconvenience to you. We have purchased all new towels for this home and have repaired the damaged chair for the new teak furniture on the pool deck. I hope you come back and visit us again in the future.
