About the property

Luxury Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, steps to 2 beautiful beaches. Tax included

CASA DEL MONO PEREZOSO (House of the Lazy Monkey), also known as Colibri 6-4 at Tamarindo Preserve, is beach luxury in a relaxed atmosphere, surrounded by nature. Howler monkeys are often spotted in the trees not far from the home.

Your rental INCLUDES FULL PRIVILEGES AT THE SPECTACULAR LANGOSTA BEACH CLUB, situated on the most family friendly, pristine beach in the area. Highlights at the Beach Club are a large infinity edge pool, an excellent fitness center, palates and yoga studio, and a wonderful restaurant and bar... all with fabulous ocean views.

We greet you with fresh flowers, fruit and coffee! Unlike most condo rentals in the area, our spacious and cheerful villa is a free-standing home surrounded by a very private, lush tropical garden. It's located on 'The Point' in beautiful Tamarindo Preserve, between Playa Tamarindo and Playa Langosta. This gated community is just steps from the quiet, immaculate beach.

Inside you'll find natural Travertine stone floors and central air conditioning, as well as teak wood ceilings and cabinetry. The custom, handmade furniture was selected for comfort as well as its tropical motif. Also included is wireless internet. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors in the living room and dining room open to the private garden patio. The two upstairs bedrooms have very comfortable beds with high-count linens. Each has it's own bathroom with two sinks and a lovely private garden shower. One bedroom has a queen-size bed and the other has two twin beds that can be pushed together if preferred. Our wonderful property manager is always very responsive and accommodating. Personal attention is an important feature of your rental.

You'll certainly enjoy all the comforts of home. Our goal is to make your vacation a truly memorable one! Please visit our website (scroll down to the LINK -- under the Owner Info section and above the Photo section) and video (click the tab above the photos at the top of this page) as well as the wonderful 5-star reviews from our clients.

Why Linda chose Tamarindo

Beautiful Playa Tamarindo is located in the province of Guanacaste, on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. It is approximately 45 minutes southwest of the Liberia airport (LIR) and a 15 minute ride from the small Tamarindo airstrip. The villa is located at a superb location at the southern end of Tamarindo, between Playa Tamarindo and the immaculate Playa Langosta. A large variety of activities are readily available. The many wonderful restaurants in the area are highlighted by local, as well as European and North American chefs. The atmosphere is always casual, and the food is terrific. Banks and shopping are nearby for all your ATM, grocery, pharmacy and sports needs. Art galleries showcase talented local artists and craftsmen.

What makes this villa unique

The area is known for its world class surfing and sport fishing. Canopy and zip line tours, rock climbing, white water rafting, kayaking, golf, sailing, beach volleyball, hiking, horseback riding, bird and turtle watching, mountain biking, ATV's, snorkeling, scuba diving, gambling and nightlife can all be enjoyed in Tamarindo or nearby. The well-known volcanoes and rain forests are a short excursion, and of course... don't forget the monkeys!

Guestbook comments from the owner

In response to the Jan. 3 guest, the next guest placed this review in our guestbook... One week is not enough! We are happy to report that Casa Mono Perezoso and Tamarindo are also wonderful places to do absolutely nothing. Our only hint of activity was a drive to the south for a quick visit to Avellanos and a really superb lunch in Playa Negra. Beyond that, we enjoyed the beach, the pool, and being lazy. We cooked the best snapper and steak. Planning a return!

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is spacious, clean, and quite comfortable, with lots of light on all sides. Beds had good firm mattresses, bathrooms were well appointed and A/C worked well (thankfully - it's hot even in December). The plunge pool in the back is a lovely amenity and provides a good, shaded sitting area to read in the mornings. The gardens are lovely, with bougainvillea and other tropical flora on several sides. We also had a nice visit from tropical fauna like iguanas on a few days -- outside the house, of course.

The owners and Willy, the property manager on site, were unfailingly responsive and friendly, and worked closely with us to make sure the stay was excellent and fit our timings.

Location is excellent - only a 12 min walk from Tamarindo town and a five min walk from Langosta Beach "town". Definitely recommend catching the sunset on Langosta Beach.

The other superb aspect of this property is that it comes with membership in the Langosta Beach Club, a seven minute walk on the beach from the Villa (but it's on Tamarindo Beach, not Langosta Beach). That turns out to be a very valuable amenity that comes with the property, as you can sit on a lounge chair or reserve a cabana at their poolside, get food and drinks, have a massage, use the workout room, and generally relax in style and comfort on their long stretch of Tamarindo Beach. They'll even organize tour or other activities if you want to.

Great Property, But Not Perfect

  • 3 of 5

I would first like to say that this is a lovely property, the home is tastefully furnished, clean and in a great location - easy walk to the beach and about 15 min walk into Tamarindo either by beach or by the roads. It has all the amenities you need and the plunge pool is welcomed on a hot day. We've stayed on the Point before and this was the first time in this unit. So why the 3 stars? Unfortunately, there was a problem with the septic/sewage system while we were there that resulted in pretty disgusting smells going through the house at various times of the day. While both Linda and William (the on-site manager) were very responsive to our calls, unfortunately, it was still unresolved by the time we left (we were there 9 days). There is also a lot of construction going on in the area (they are fully developing the property on the Point) which could be contributing to the issue - but also note, due to the construction, there is some noise throughout the day - it's not crazy disruptive, but, it's there. Linda had mentioned that they were having an expert check the unit (note: a neighbor in the complex indicated the same issue, so it may be more widespread) to try and resolve it. If you are planning to stay here, you may want to make sure this has in fact been resolved. Otherwise, everything else - no complaints.

Owner's Response: Thank you for visiting our home Therese. As I told you before, I am truly sorry for the inconvenience! For the benefit of future guests: As stated in this review (the only review of our home that was less than 5-STARS), our community had an unfortunate septic system problem during Therese’s visit. The odors were occasional and we worked diligently with an engineer and plumber to alleviate the problem. Repairs are expected to be completed today. ** PLEASE keep this in mind rather than negating our home from your rental options. Regarding construction, we have been told by other guests that the noise is minimal (during daylight hours only)… and certainly minimal compared to the nightlife noise in other Tamarindo rentals. ** As you may have read in our previous reviews (again, all 5-stars), our on-site manager and I respond to our guests quickly and do our very best to make your vacation as relaxed and comfortable as possible. My husband and I appreciate a streamlined vacation when we travel and we work hard to offer our guests a personalized, enjoyable experience. As noted in our reviews, our home is very clean and comfortable, our on-site manager is wonderful, the location is great and the beach club is an added bonus. Thank you for understanding! Linda

Costa Rica

We loved this place and would go back in heartbeat. The house was fully equipped as if we were at home. The plunge pool was great for morning dips and late night swimming. Lots of birds and Monkeys. Don't expect too much on the internet connection. Still 3rd world

The house was well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very lovely, in a gated community in an area that is still being developed however there was no disruption to us. The garden is lovely and has a resident iguana. Keeping the lights on in the bathroom is essential as the showers are open at the top and bats will come in at dusk and hang from the light fittings! The little pool is lovely and the free access to the beach club is a great asset. The house is a 5 min walk from the club and a 10min walk from the town although taxis are plentiful if like us you are there in the rainy season.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review and helpful tips. My apologies for any inconvenience regarding the bats! For the benefit of future guests, here’s an update: They’re gone! The bats carried their vegetarian dinner from nearby trees into our garden showers for a couple of weeks but we found an easy and safe solution. We installed a shower curtain between the shower and the plant area. The bats fly elsewhere if the curtain is kept closed at night, but guests can enjoy the open feeling of the garden shower during the day. Thanks again for visiting our home! Linda

Beautiful property with access to Langosta beach club

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Linda's place. Check-in was easy with her property manager assisting. The home is beautiful and tastefully furnished. It has a pretty plunge pool in the back, perfect for cooling off after the days activities. The best part was having access to Langosta Beach Club. We hung out there for part of each day and enjoyed the food and drinks, sushi bar, work-out room, pool and surfboard rentals. We even had dinner one night at the beach club. The food was delicious. Also enjoyed meals at Patagonia, Noguis, and El Sapo RistoPizza (very authentic Italian pizza!) Everthing is in walking distance (10-15 mintues). Highly recommend this place!

Comfy, safe stay with member access to Longosta Beach Club!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Linda's place in Tamarindo for spring break - a family of four with kids ages 10 and 12. The condo was super comfortable and gated for a safe, private place with a parking spot, beautiful outdoor showers, and all of the comforts of home.

A typical day was spent with family breakfast at the condo, then a short drive to the Longosta Beach Club which was an absolutely fabulous place to hang out during the day. We rented a cabana each day and had lunch there at the Club. We body-surfed, swam in the pool, and met lots of other families enjoying a lively but not over-crowded spring break.

I highly recommend Linda's place. Having the car was really nice. You could walk to town or to the Club, or rent a golf cart instead, but we used the car a lot.

We spent the first part of the trip up in Rincon de la Viejo at Blue River Resort zip-lining and horse-back riding, and Tamarindo was the chill, beachy, second-half of the trip. It was really great!

There's a big American-style grocery store in Tamarindo, but we really loved the Italian Fish and Cheeses market across the street. What a unique place!
