About Bob Wilson

We are from Pennsylvania. One of our children received an advanced university degree in Costa Rica. We fell in love with country and culture while visiting.

Bob Wilson purchased this condo in 2008

Why Bob Wilson chose Tamarindo

Tamarindo is the most dynamic community on the famed Gold Cost of Costa Rica. It is an old surfing town that has grown up into an eco-tourist and wonderful family destination. Some of the world’s finest surfing can still be found here. There are over 50 restaurants including 8 which I would call “World Class”. In addition to every possible water sport like sport fishing, scuba, snorkeling, sunset cruises, jet skis, sailing , there are also horse tours, quad tours, canopy (zip line) tours, hiking, shopping, bikes and scooters. There is the best beach in Costa Rica on which you can walk up to 5 miles. The water is warm and beautiful. Number 1 is the Tamarindo Preserve. We are located across the street from the Beach Club at Tamarindo Preserve and you have full membership privileges as long as you are renting.

What makes this condo unique

Number 1 is the location. We are located across the street from the Langosta Beach Club and you have full membership privileges as long as you are renting. The Club includes a complete fitness center, large infinity edge pool overlooking the best beach in Costa Rica, Yoga and Pilates not to mention the sunset bar. Our condo building is only 10 homes including 2 penthouses. It is gated with its own parking and 24/7 security. We are also only 100 yards from the beach.

Gorgeous Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Ibis on the Beach in penthouse #10 on the top floor. The condo was beautiful inside. The a/c worked great in both the main room and in the bedrooms. The large outdoor patio looking towards the beach (although you can't see the beach) was lovely but can be a little noisy with traffic. We loved sitting on the balconies overlooking the nature preserve in back. Across the street is the Langosta Beach Club which is included with the condo so very convenient. It has a restaurant, bar, pool, chairs on beach, and towels. Beach is very nice.

Condo is only a 10 min walk to town where you'll find shops, restaurants, and small supermarkets. No need for a car. We took a shuttle from LIR airport (1 hr drive) thru 506 Transfers (family owned..awesome people). No need for taxi. Condo location is perfect...away from all the chaos but within a short walk of town.

We booked a number of excusions thru Stefano. Used 506 Transfers for awesome trip to Arenal to zipline, hot springs and La Fortuna waterfall. 506 Transfers also took us to Tenorio Adventures where we went white water rafting which was a blast. Can't say enough good things about 506...Sebastian and Guido! We took a kayak trip on estuary in Tamarindo which was fun. Another highlight was hiring Chef Frank with BellyFedBetter who came to the condo and cooked dinner one night. Highly recommend him! Food was delicious!! We had hired the chicas to cook a traditional meal the night we arrived but unfortunately they never showed up. We also booked surf lessons for the five of us. The lessons were a lot of fun. Unfortunately, only one of two instructors showed up. All that being said, we would do it all again. The trips were easy to set up through Stefano, and he answered all of my many questions. Our stay was a nice mix of excursions and time on the beach.

Our favorite restaurants: Seasons (cash only) and Dragonfly Bar and Grill. Will want reservations for both. Heard Panga's was also very good but didn't make it there (need reservations). Had good pizza at Pizzeria La Baula. Surf Shack is a great spot for lunch. Volcano Brewing had great beer. Good breakfast spots: La Bodega, Cafe Tico, and Nogui's. Heard Nordico Coffee House was good too but never made it. Most restaurants and supermarkets took credit cards but smaller places only took cash. Every place took dollars. All of our excursions were cash only.

Bottom line: Highly recommend this condo! Enjoy!

Perfect Space and Location!

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse FAR exceeded our expectations! The photos online must be a bit dated because all of the furniture was different from what was shown - for the better in my opinion with a more modern feel. It truly felt like home away versus a vacation rental. It came fully stocked with quality pots/pans/serving dishes for all of your entertainment and daily living needs. This rental comes with access to a gorgeous beach club literally right across the street so it was nice to run up whenever we needed something without losing precious beach time. It also had wi-fi so we could keep our phones on airplane mode and still receive and send text messages when connected without occurring additional charges. It was located on the edge of town so just a quick 5 minute walk up the beach to dinner every night. Tamarindo is a very casual town where you can "come as you are" to nearly any store or restaurant. We felt safe and relaxed at all times! We were glad we decided not to rent a car as you really don't need one at all. A cab ride is only $4 if you needed it to carry groceries back or were going to venture further out for dinner. Gil and his son Sabastian were our drivers to and from the airport and on our Adrenaline Day Excursion. They were WONDERFUL! They greeted us with beer and water for the 1.5 hour drive to the condo and even made a stop at the grocery store so we could pick up a few things for the week. Sabastian spoke great English so he accompanied us into the grocery store helping us make recommendations and pay with the correct currency. He shared lots of knowledge with us about the culture and island every time we rode with them. When Gill picked us up to take us back to the airport he even remembered to bring us sugar cane to sample as we had been talking about wanting to try it. I think they are the designated drivers for this property but I would make sure to request them again should we return just in case! Overall our week in Costa Rica was amazing and we would definitely stay here again next time - it's hard to top!

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

Just sadly returned from our Costa Rica trip! The photos do not do the place justice! No expense spared with the property! The staff at Ibis on the Beach were all so warm and helpful.From answering simple questions to arranging wonderful adventures! The beach club across the street was fantastic also. Will certainly be back! Pura Vida for life!

We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this unit and my sister-in-law's family rented the other unit. We wanted to be close to each other but each have our own space. It was perfect. Unit 9 and 10 are almost identical and they are both on the 3rd level right next to each other. The staff were awesome and they were so helpful with planning everything from drivers to activities. We did zip-lining, quad tours, river tours, and rented a golf cart for exploring. We also hired the local ladies to cook for us for breakfast and Chef Frank for dinners. I recommend hiring them to cook for you. It was awesome. These units were great because you have access to a pool/club right across the street and also have beach access as well. The bartender at the club was outstanding and totally took care of us. We would do activities in the morning and then play at the pool/beach in the afternoon. I highly recommend the pura vida cocktail. Yum. Also, the beach is VERY kid friendly with hermit crabs, sand dollars and warm water. Make sure you visit the beach during low tide because it's truly magical. Our kids loved this vacation.

Amazing property!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here with my sister and brother in law and my parent-in-laws, who were celebrating their 70th birthdays. Honestly, the whole experience was fantastic. We are pretty seasoned "homeaway-ers", having stayed in properties all over the US and Europe, and I have to say, this was way up there in terms of the quality of the property, the professionalism of the staff and the amenities. The house is extremely well stocked (crate and barrel / williams sonoma, etc.) and has nearly everything you need including a decent blender if you like to make smoothies or margaritas! The beds are pretty comfy (pillows are a little wonky), but the bonus of having a bathroom en suite in each bedroom makes traveling with a group so much more comfortable, not to mention the beautiful balcony's two of the bedrooms have - perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and looking at the sunrise over the preserve behind the property. Access to the beach club across the street was included and it was key to our experience - we reserved a cabana for at least half of the day, each day we were there and it was perfect for us to be able to sit by the pool, yet be on the beach and just relax... The walk into town on the beach is 5-7 minutes and if you take the road it's about 10 minutes. There is an excellent farmers market just down the way on Saturdays (highly recommend) and a surprisingly well stocked grocery store that the property staff will drive you to for a nominal fee (alternatively, we rented bikes from them for $10 a day that had baskets and just rode down and shopped, it was less than 3 miles). I would caution anyone that is used to "resort-town food" that this area offers more standard fare. Most of our experiences with "nicer" restaurants were pretty average, but Season's by Shlomy was the most standout... We absolutely loved the area - the people are insanely friendly, including the staff at the condo, who were absolutely LOVELY. Totally recommend this property if you are considering the area - with the inclusion of the huge balcony that has a private hot tub, the beach club and the perfect proximity to the beach and town, I'd be hard pressed to imagine a better choice.

Beautiful! Everything we needed right there

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this unit was nice. It was well managed with assistance available in everything from parking to luggage to restaurant reservations and recommendations. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. This condo was equipped with everything we needed and it was all high quality. Couldn't. Have asked for a better place to stay. Cannot wait to go back.
