The home is a study in excellence and attention to detail. You will immediately be struck by the travertine limestone floors and vaulted solid teak ceilings.

There is a full laundry room with Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer. The air conditioning is 2-zone Trane central air.

You will be just far enough away from the center of Tamarindo to escape the noise and congestion but only a 7 minute walk on the road or beach. It is a comfortable walk to over 40 of our more than 60 restaurants. The list of available activities in the area is almost endless and include surfing, sailing, snorkeling, diving, sunset cruises, sport fishing, horse back riding, canopy (zip line) tours, hiking, bike tours, quad (ATV) tours and many, many more include my favorite which is just kicking back and enjoying Pura Vida (The good life)

About Bob Wilson

We hail from Central New York, just outside of Syracuse. Our family vacationed in Tamarindo, and although we have visited many wonderful places, we found that Costa Rica holds a raw and wild beauty. Needless to say, we were reluctant to return to the land of ice and snow. It is always warm and welcoming in Tamarindo!

Bob Wilson purchased this condo in 2014

Nice Villa. Great location to town and beach.

The property is comfortable and convenient. We walked all over Tamarindo. Our guides, Guildo and Sebastian were amazing. Please ask for them. You will not be disappointed.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our spring break week at Ibis #9. There were 4 adults and 4 children in our group. We absolutely loved it! It was spacious, comfortable and convenient. Everyone was so helpful! We arranged for airport transportation through Stefano (about an hour drive from Liberia) and the driver let us stop for groceries on our way to the condo. Once we arrived, Camacho carried all our luggage up to the condo. Everything we needed was available in the condo. I did bring a small bottle of laundry detergent, which allowed us to bring fewer clothes, wash as we needed, and return home with clean clothes! Bring shampoo, conditioner and sunscreen (very expensive locally). The unit is exactly as pictured in the photos. The main room and kitchen are plenty big and it never felt crowded, even with 8 of us. The 'cold-pool' out on the deck was very refreshing and fun for the kids. We spent a lot of evening time relaxing on the front deck, which had plenty of deck furniture. The wifi worked great, which made my 16-year old happy. Any time we wanted to plan an excursion, or needed directions, the front desk staff was incredibly helpful. They planned everything for us and would tell us exactly where to go. We did the sunset cruise (amazing), learned to surf, toured the estuary and did some fishing. The front desk lined up all of our transportation. The Beach Club across the street was perfect. It's an easy walk to the pool or the beach. The restaurant on site served great lunch and the staff there was also very friendly and helpful. My kids were stung by jellyfish, which is apparently pretty rare (and wasn't very painful), but the Beach Club staff immediately tended to them, bringing vinegar to sooth the sting. The beach out front of the Beach Club is beautiful, quiet and great for swimming in the ocean. The condo is the perfect distance from town. It's an easy walk, and there are great restaurants and shops in Tamarindo. We spent many evenings walking to town to find a good dinner restaurant, and then walking back to the quiet of our condo. We slept great in the condo, with the exception of one morning when the holler monkeys out back were quite active. It was fun to hear them though. There were plenty of extra blankets and towels available in the unit. I would highly recommend this rental and look forward to our next visit to Costa Rica!

Can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

Ibis #9 was a wonderful place to celebrate my wife’s 40th birthday at and Bob’s entire team was extremely helpful during the booking process and through our entire stay. Our group of five adults loved staying in the spacious condo and we truly enjoyed having such a beautiful place to call home during our one week trip.

After reserving the condo we received a welcome email with general information and a long list of various tours to choose from. Stefano answered all of my group’s questions and we booked three tours plus airport transportation. Upon arrival, our driver picked us up and took us to the grocery store for the essentials and then over to the condo. We were greeted by Robert, who gave us an overview of the area, their services and the property. Ibis #9 is every bit as beautiful as the photos online and has an extremely warm feeling with the combination of the wood, granite and tile throughout. The balcony is definitely a highlight and we spent many evenings there reminiscing about the day’s events. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the essential cookware and the appliances are adequate. The wireless internet and satellite/cable TV worked very well and the stereo system with ceiling speakers in each room was a nice plus. Any of the small issues we had were immediately addressed by the maintenance staff who also keep the building very clean and the groundskeeper maintains a well-manicured property. Membership to the beach club across the street is the perfect complement for the property giving you all the amenities you could find in a resort with a very personable staff willing to accommodate all requests.

All in all, the property was perfect for what we wanted: spacious, luxurious, close to town but far enough away and with access to the beach right across the street. The staff was very helpful in both planning and arranging additional tours while we were there and a trip highlight was having Chef Frank cook an amazing dinner for us in the condo on my wife’s birthday. We all look forward to coming back. Costa Rica is an amazing place to visit and staying at the Ibis #9 only enhances the Pura Vida experience.

birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

the place is awesome, bedrooms have plenty of room. we had a total of 5 girls sharing the place and it worked out great. The patio was nice to sit out on in the morning or when we came back. The house is in a perfect spot, you have a little walk to 'downtown' but its a fun walk. Theres a grocery store near and beach is right across the street. we did run into an issue with the AC unit for the rooms but management was pretty quick to get the issue resolved. Again its an awesome rental and would recommend it!! (PS there is an elevator available if youre unable to make the climb up the stairs)

Family Vacation in Costa Rica

  • 4 of 5

My family just returned from a beautiful 10 day stay in Tamarindo Costa Rica. We booked Ibis #9 based on the gorgeous photos and wonderful reviews. The manager and staff and the condo are nothing short of amazing. Everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating to any request we might have had. Juan helped us arrange our transportation to and from the airport as well as book many tours for us. In addition he took my husband into town for grocery shopping and even picked us up a few things prior to our arrival since came in late with children on the first evening.

The photos are exact and the condo and balcony area look just like them. Beautiful kitchen, lounging area and plenty of space for our family of 4. For me, sleeping was a little difficult, I think construction in Costa Rica is different than the states and you definitely hear the birds through the building in the morning. We aren't late sleepers anyway but we definitely rose with the sun here. We had a few issues with the secondary toilet during our stay so we opted to just not use it anymore. The condo is stocked with everything you will need to cook all the meals you can think of but we opted to hand wash all our dishes as the dishwasher just never seem to get anything clean. All minor items.

The proximity to town is perfect! We walk everywhere and loved every second of being able to explore the area. The beach club across the street is a HUGE asset and perfect for lounging by the pool or an active day on the beach. The location could not be better!

Luxury condominium

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this lovely condominium the last week of July with our 4 adult children. The unit was well-appointed, beautifully decorated, and the kitchen was well equipped. Only a short walk from Tamarindo, and adjacent to the Tamarindo nature preserve, the building is quiet and feels secluded. One of the best features was access to the Langosta beach club across the street, which was the perfect beach retreat, complete with pool, restaurant, bar, plus beach gear and lessons. Our family wanted a vacation where they could relax and enjoy a beach vacation, so it was important to us to have the beach club amenity.

Two restaurants we recommend are ether Shrimp Hole and Seasons. Both featured fresh, fresh seafood!

The concierge contacted us when we booked our week and sent us a comprehensive list of activities to help us plan our trip, which was a nice touch. Once we arrived, they took care of our needs promptly. We had some issues with appliances that were not working, but Bob, the property manager took care of our concerns as soon as we called. He went above the call of duty when our daughter had an issue with her eye and needed to see a doctor. He sent his wife, Veronica, who took her to a clinic, stayed to translate for her and then went to a pharmacy to pick up medicine. They were all very caring, which we really appreciated.

We recommend this property and hope we can return someday.
