About Carmen Liu

Hi! We travel down to Tamarindo regularly to check in at our place, upkeep it and take care of it personally. It is a fully functioning house with small details that makes a home away from home. Ask us more about Casa54 and all our favorite activities and eateries nearby!

Pura Vida. Hasta Pronto!

Carmen Liu purchased this condo in 2009

Why Carmen Liu chose Guanacaste

Eco-minded community & eco-driven tourism. Ranked the happiest place on earth. Laid back small town vibe that is being protected from overdevelopment and sell outs. Great surf in wet season, absolutely stunning at Christmas dry season.

Book here for your Tamarindo stay

Booking, paying, arriving to Tamarindo etc was easy with this rental! It is very clean and the washer and dryer is always nice amenity! The location is not beach front, however, the walk is easy and not far from the beach, shops and food. My friend and I rented a car since we traveled to 3 different cities in Costa Rica but next time we are utilizing the shuttle services the VRBO owners recommend. Bring cash because while most places take credit cards, most do not. They do have ATM's for if you do run out, but it is a hassle. That is one thing my friend and I wish someone had told us so now I am telling you! The beach experience wasn't as nice as it was in Samara (the city we were in before we drove up to Tamarindo) because the local vendors were constantly walking up and down the beach all day asking you if you want to purchase something. But besides that, Tamarindo is a fun place to stay in Costa Rica and about an hour and a half max from Liberia airport. We enjoyed our time at this location and will be back I'm sure!

First trip to Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and first time using VRBO. I must admit I was nervous at first but I sent payment to Frederick via PayPal and everything turned out great. The place was as pictured, clean, within walking distance of the beach and everything else Tamarindo has to offer. Frederick was always available to answer any questions and provided great help. We arrived after 5 pm and picked up the keys from the lockbox without any problems. The Condo has everything you need including beach towels. The beds could be a little more comfortable but were sufficient. Having the washer and dryer available was nice. One piece of advice---DO NOT RENT A CAR. The rental car will be triple the price quoted online once you arrive due to MANDATORY Costa Rica insurance. You can pay for a shuttle and rent a golf cart once your there. Also you can plan many excursions at a kiosk near the beach with a guy named Marco and transportation is included. Food at most places was good but not cheap, around same price as here in US. The tour to Rincon de Vieja included zip lining, horseback riding, hot springs, tubing and is awesome. Also the Sunset Catamaran cruise was very nice. I never felt afraid for my safety the whole time on this trip. We had fluent Spanish speakers with us so we were able to pull over and ask for directions, so if you don't have anybody who speaks Spanish and are renting a car, make sure to get directions from Frederick before leaving. The driving is different because there are not as many signs as what we have in the US. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your place Frederick and I look forward to coming back. Grab your shorts and sandals, book Villa Verde ll with Frederick and go to Tamarindo. You'll be glad you did!

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was an awesome place to stay. close to the beach, close to restaurants, no need to drive anywhere. We meet loads of great people; visitors like myself and so many great local folks. The condo looks like the photos on VRBO. The security is great and they open the door for you every time you exit and return. They are there 24 hours a day. Nothing stolen, and so much gain! Meaning - meeting folks from different countries is a blessing. The world is a great place! Thank you Frederick to allow me to rent your beautiful condo in Tamarindo!

Perfect locale in Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5

This little condo was perfect for our girls getaway. We were a short 5-10min walk from the beach, restaurants, & shops. You can setup surf lessons anywhere in town, as well as scuba and other exursions. The condo was perfect size, 3 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, and a futon. The washer, dryer, stove, and fridge were really awesome to have. I would definitely recommend staying here over a hotel. All you need is to show up with a swimsuit & a pair of sandals, & a smile. Tamarindo provides the rest!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this rental property and I would recommend it to anyone!! It was spacious, clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and in a great location, meeting every traveler's needs. The kitchen was ideal as it allowed us to cook in when we pleased, and the washer and dryer was a great amenity for when we needed to wash our clothes.

The community was beautiful boasting two pools, vibrant flowers, and friendly neighbors.

One of the most important features is that whether or not you have rented a car, the condo is a 5 minute walk to the beach. It is also a quick walk into town, where there are a ton of restaurants and surf and sovereign shops. A coffee shop and grocery store are also close by.

The property management company who helps with rentals was also very responsive and helpful with all our needs.

Complete relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The location of this rental property is ideal. I would totally recommend it to anyone traveling to Costa Rica. This property’s location and close proximity to the beaches as well as to the center of town are ideal. It offers a nice launching pad for day trips to the beach or other local communities. Any amenity that one could ask for is located just a few minute walk down to the beach or into town.

The property itself was surprisingly large consisting of two levels, the property was immaculate, comfortable, nicely decorated, with a full kitchen, and with two and a half baths it’s ideal for multiple travelers. A washer and dryer in the unit was also a nice plus. If the beach were too much for you, you could always use one of the pools located inside the gated community.

A small coffee shop and a grocery store are also close by. The property management company who helps with rentals was also very responsive and helpful with all our needs.
