About Heidi

I have been traveling to Costa Rica since 1996 & am happy to help you plan your perfect Costa Rican vacation.

Heidi purchased this house in 2008

Why Heidi chose Tamarindo

The water is always warm, the beaches & town are clean. They recycle, you can drink the water, use the USA dollar & almost everyone speaks English. Tamarindo is centrally located & you can walk everywhere in town. You do not need to rent a car. There is a bank 2 doors down with ATM.

What makes this house unique

All beach towels, ice chests, TV/DVDs and wireless internet + washer/dryer are included. There is a safe in the front bedroom and lock boxes in the back bedrooms. We have a nice pool area to enjoy when you're not using one of the three balconies and a gas BBQ on the side deck for renter use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We bought this penthouse so we'd have a great getaway that we could also share with others. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Heidi & Robert

Great trip to Tamarindo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay in Tamarindo! The town is very casual, easy to navigate without a car, beach and restaurants within walking distance. The condo is very roomy, has everything a family needs and Heidi is very helpful and responsive! One suggestion would be to bring cash as some excursions don't take credit cards.

First time we tried home away and the personal service by Heidi was beyond helpful. Heidi responded to every question and offered advice about the area and activities, could not be more grateful!

Another enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks once again to Heidi. Easy to communicate with and the condo is fantastic! Plenty of room for the 4 of us that stayed. Very safe area, not a thing to worry about. There is even a gated space for a rental car of ATV. Everything is within walking distance and the breakfast sandwich at La Bodega is the best. Highly suggested if you will be staying in Tamarindo. :)

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week with family and friends in this spacious and wonderful condo. Nice and quiet and relaxing area. The pool was great and private. Gated area gave that extra sense of security. Loved every second there. Highly recommended for all ages.

Absolute BEST place to stay in Tamarindo!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 3rd time staying in Heidi's penthouse condo! The best of everything! Fantastic location, fully equipped, pool, laundry, etc! Quick 5 minute walk downtown & to beach! Close to lots of great restaurants! Everything is within walking distance, no car needed in Tamarindo! Excursions pick you up right at your door! Condo is quiet, safe & has everything you need! Heidi, the owner, is perfect to deal with - very informative & helpful in all aspects! The condo has a lovely pool and is gated for xtra security. The airport shuttle brings you right to your door. You can walk to anywhere downtown, including grocery store. Super easy to get around. You will not go wrong with renting this unit. Choices of first rate restaurants within 2 minutes of condo - Italian, French. I use Xplore for my excursions, ask for Eugenio! He is the BEST guide in Tamarindo!! Enjoy the $30 massages on the beach, be sure to visit El Be's and tell Melissa that Alice sent you! Definitely do a catamaran sunset cruise. Most of all, relax and enjoy yourself....afterall, you are on Tico Time!!
