Excellent location

Stayed here for a week. Manager very accommodating and easy to deal with! House met all expectations. Perfect walk to town and restaurants. Favorite part was the surf as well as watching howler monkeys!

The house is as advertised. Right on the beach. Clean, user friendly, lots of modern conveniences. We LOVED the howler monkey family that live on the property. Being able to walk the beach to town, restaurants, shops if we wanted and not having to walk the street was fabulous, but walking the street wasn't bad either, just not as beautiful and quiet. The 1 walk each way, every morning was a fantastic way to start your day. The weather was great, the water extremely warm and everyone very friendly and helpful. We wanted to see the sunset off the ocean and not the "bay" so walked to the far west side either at low tide or over the top of the hill. Real easy and way worth the walk. Fun condos, hotels and house on this side.

What probably was the best was the overall best location of this house. Never crowded, wonderful to learn to surf and only a 40 minute ride from the airport.

I would caution any one coming at Christmas. The crowds were so interesting to mingle with because every nationality was represented but the outdoor disco music that played between Christmas and New Years was some times difficult to handle when it went from 9 AM to 2 AM LOUD, like it was right next door but really was in town. Water carries sound :( In the beginning we thought the howler monkeys were loud but.....

It didn't hamper our stay but would have liked it better at night to hear the waves and not the banging of the music.

We will go back and will try to stay in this house again. You can be right on the beach (rarity), take a 30 second water taxi ride over to playa grande to see the turtles, 15 minutes to Ziplining with Monkey Jungle, see sunsets without leaving your area, go out to what ever kind of food you can imagine within a 10 minute walk and even walk to the Automarket grocery, if you don't mind a little further walk, or 5 minutes to the little market/store.

We were able to drink the water 1/2 way through our stay without issues, we cooked most days and nights and had a great time.

Places great to eat

Shrimp Hole by 2001 grocery

El Blula- Italian , great Pizza

Falafal - great greek salad

Wicked Jack area where they rent surf boards

Nugi's for happy hour

We NEVER got in a car or taxi after we were dropped off day one, except to Zipline

We loved our stay at Casa Del Mar! It's an ideal location...RIGHT on the beach...close enough to walk to downtown Tamarindo but far enough away (to the south) that it's very quiet & peaceful. We loved watching the sunsets & falling asleep to the sound of the surf! Directly in front of the house, is great surfing for long boarders & beginners. Walking distance to the south is Playa Langosta which is great surf for more advanced surfers. The gardens at the house are very lush & maintained full-time by Celadonia (a very kind man!). There's also Anna, the housekeeper, who does your laundry (a huge vacation perk!) and provides fresh towels daily. We were often out & about when she came by. The property is gated & very secure with a place to park a rental car. We also loved the wildlife that visited the property...monkeys, a giant iguana, birds & some other creature (a coati maybe?). The house itself is great...perfect size for the 4 of us, a well-equipped full kitchen & a very open beach feel. This was by far our favorite vacation stay! We will definitely be back!

Perfect House and Location on the Beach in Tamarindo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this house during our vacation in January of 2012. Living in the Northwest, we were looking for a vacation spot on the beach, with warm temperatures, and lots of sunshine. The house was perfect for our needs! It has a raised roof / ceiling to enjoy the tropical atmosphere. The open floor plan with kitchen, dining and living area looks out to the large patio and beach to the front. The property is secure - along with parking if you decide to rent a car - and is directly inline with 'monkey path'. We really enjoyed the 'Lion's roar' in the morning as the Howler monkeys traveled through. The beach offered great access to restaurants, shopping and beach walks directly from the front patio! We can't say enough about the house and Tamarindo with its great restaurants, fun shopping, and friendly atmosphere. Whether you're looking for peace and quiet, a ride through the jungle on quads, great golf courses, or nice local restaurants, we felt this house and location provided our access to a tropical paradise. No question, we will be back again to see all the sights we didn't get to see the first time!
