About The Owner

My wife and I live in Arizona, USA, and try to visit Costa Rica as often as we can. My wife and I have travelled to more than 80 countries and fell in love with Costa Rica and Tamarindo.

My wife is a 4th-generation Arizonan, as her ancestors came to Arizona in covered wagons in the 1880's to start a ranch that is still in the family. My father was a career U.S. Naval Officer, so I grew up on Navy bases in multiple locations. We are responsible people, and my wife is an elected member of the non-partisan Town Council of the town where we live.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Guanacaste

We initially wanted to buy a condo directly on the beach in the Playa Langosta area of Tamarindo, but this condo building was all sold out even before the cement was poured. We bought another condo nearby, but not right on the beach. We later were able to buy this condo in the Horizontes Del Mar building in Langosta, so we bought it because it is so rare to be right on the ocean, even though we already owned another condo nearby, which we later sold.

We chose to buy in Tamarindo because my wife is a "foodie" who enjoys a variety of fine dining. Tamarindo has more than 50 restaurants. Even though they are casual and tropical/open air in decor, the cuisine is international, with many of the chefs coming from Europe. We prefer the variety of the restaurants in Tamarindo and Langosta to a master-planned resort community, where guests would feel confined to dining in a resort dining room.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is unique because our building has the best beachfront location in the Tamarindo/Langosta area, and our unit has the best location in the building. Most condos in the area are across a street or several blocks from the beach (even some condos that advertise themselves as being beach-front). Our condo is right on the beach, with views up and down the beach and out to the ocean. The sunsets over the ocean from our patio/balcony are stunning.

Our unit is unique because of its modern design, luxurious features, and it is positioned to take advantage of the beachfront location. It maximizes views to the west and north, which is the most desireable direction for views of the beach and the sunsets. It is in the middle of the building, easy for parking access on the only level of the building that avoids a flight of stairs. It overlooks the pool area, without being directly above the pool.

There is a wide variety of condos in Tamarindo, ranging in price from less than $100,000 to more than a half million U.S. dollars. This condo is at the top of the market. When renting a condo over the internet you want to sure that you will get the amenities and value that you want and will not be disappointed with a budget unit. This is a luxury condo.

Our condo has the highest occupancy rate of any of the more than 180 condos managed by our property management company, and most of our guests are repeat visitors, many of whom come every year.

Clean and modern

  • 4 of 5

The local grocery store has everything you'll need. Not much to pick from for local restaurants at dinner time. The pizza place hours are hit and miss and the local deli is awesome, but closes at 4:30pm.

The property was everything I was looking for as a relaxing stay. Wifi worked well. Unit was nice and modern.

Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything we expected, the view and sound of the surf was great and it was a very short walk from the condo. The AC worked great and RMS was very helpful. We defiantly recommend this unit.

Ideal location to enjoy all CR has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is an ideal location -- close to SO MANY great restaurants yet away from the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo. Langosta Beach is almost your private beach where you can enjoy good size waves and watching the surfers enjoy themselves. The pool is great for cooling down at the end of a long day and a great spot to enjoy Tamarindo's amazing sunsets. During our week-long stay we enjoyed a catamaran/snorkeling trip aboard the Marlin del Rey, zip lining at Pura Aventura, surfing lessons on Tamarindo Beach and a trip to Rincon de la Vieja national park for viewing monkeys (spider, white faced and howler), volcano fumaroles and bubbling mud baths. This was our second time in Costa Rica and it never disappoints. The condo is well equipped, extremely clean and so comfortable. Just one word of caution...remember to remain vigilant. The condo on the first floor was broken into while the occupants slept and robbers stole $5K worth of electronics. This unit is on the second floor and much more difficult to access from the outside.

Perfect Family Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

This place came as advertised and more. The place was exceptionally clean, very spacious, had all of the things you would ever need, and was the perfect place for our family of four. The gardener kept the place looking great and the pool was a good size. It was also quite private as often we were the only ones using the pool. The beach is about 2 minutes away; although you can't really swim in the ocean right in front of the condo you can walk about 5 minutes south along the beach and find a nice swimming area. The outdoor balcony is huge and is great for relaxing and getting some cover from the sun if you wish, while still being outside. The host was very responsive and provides lots of information to aid in your stay. The condo is about a 15 minute walk to Tamarindo which offered a great getaway from the busyness while still be close enough to the action. We would definitely go back to this place again.

Fabulous vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Dave, thanks for sharing your rental with us. It was perfect for 2 couples, close enough to walk to the beach and Tamarindo. My husband really appreciated the boogie boards that you provide. Having a washing machine was perfect since we were on our second week in CR. We all appreciated the fully equipped kitchen, big showers and the outdoor patio facing the beach. It was so nice to be able to jump in to the refreshing pool when we needed a cool off but didn't want to walk down to the beach. The management company was great with storing our luggage until check in time, tour set ups, arranging to pick up family at the airport and allowing a late check out. Thanks again, having a great place to stay made this trip relaxing and memorable.

Pure relaxation with a fabulous ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 10 luxurious days in November 2015. The condo has 2 bedrooms, 2-1/2 baths, with a beautiful open floor plan. It is very beautifully decorated, well cared for, and has all the linens, cooking utensils, etc. that you need. You'll want to stop for groceries at the AutoMercado outside Tamarindo, as that is where you'll get the best prices on groceries. There are a few smaller places nearby for smaller purchases. The A/C works great. Having a washer & dryer in the condo was a big plus, so you don't have to pack so many clothes and to get that "sea smell" out of your swimming suits & other beach gear. The pool is great, and a welcome respite from the afternoon heat. Our favorite thing to do was to just sit on the patio and enjoy the sounds of the surf and the ocean views. We also enjoyed long walks on the beach. There are lots of great restaurants in the Langosta and Tamarindo areas, so bring your appetite!! There are also lots of fun activities to do in the area, including snorkeling, scuba, ziplining, wildlife tours, and more. The property management people are great, and will schedule all the trips you want. They will even arrange for you to be picked up right at the condo. This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and we're so glad we did at this condo....really made it a memorable trip!! Pure Vida!
