BEST VALUE for something truly nice in PLAYA GRANDE. Our beautifully appointed, fully furnished home provides a wonderful and relaxing getaway in a private, gated, quaint, laid back beach community separated from the congestion of Tamarindo. It is within a short 5 minute walk to a beautiful, pristine surfing beach, several great restaurants, bars, and a grocery. Tiled roof, floors and counter tops throughout. Relax on the covered patio where Iguanas and colorful birds perch and will eat from your hand. Monkeys and parrots play overhead. Also, within walking distance, a beautiful estuary provides fishing, boating, and offers a water taxi which takes you on a 5 minute ride to Tamarindo for dining, dancing, gambling, shopping and souviners. You may also choose to walk to Tamarindo via the beach (possible only at very low tide) . Dual vanities in bathroom. Maid service included (Mon/Wed/Fri)! We invite you to stay in comfort while you are in Playa Grande. Mi casa es su casa). AWESOME BEACH!!!!! Read our reviews. Two beach-cruiser type bicycles are included with this rental. Casa Mambo is close enough to the beach to hear the waves crashing when they are big! It is an easy and very short walk to the beach from the house (or an even quicker bicycle ride),

I have been going to Costa Rica at least once a year since 1987 and continue to love this place tremendously! Always look forward to my next trip to Playa Grande. My parents also love Playa Grande and stay at the house for a full month each year.
Hank Townsend purchased this villa in 1999
Most pristine beach in all of Costa Rica in my opinion. Very laid back community which you will feel apart of very quickly. I hope you get to experience Casa Mambo.
'feels like my own little Costa Rica home' as stated by one of our many regularly returning guests.
Since the photos were taken, we have installed drapes and curtains throughout the house for your privacy.
Me and two buddies rented out Casa Mambo for two weeks and had a blast! The house was excellent and the maids were great too. We had air conditioning in each room which was just another great perk of this place! Would highly recommend for anyone who is looking for close proximity to the beach and world class surf. The waves are great all summer with off shore winds in the morning and barrels up and down the beach. The store is right next to the house and the food at both Restaurants (Los Malinches and The Great Wallitinis) is awesome. We can't wait to go back again next summer
My family and I had a wonderful stay during the 2016 Christmas Holiday! The surfing at Playa Grande was awesome and just a short walk from the condo. Lots of places to eat and drink within walking distance and Tamarindo is about 30 min. away by car a little closer if you walk down the beach and catch the water taxi. My nine year old daughter loved it! Pura Vida!
CASA Mambo was a great spot for us. There were multiple restaurants within walking distance and the beach was just a 5 minute walk. It is one of 6 casitas that sit around a pool but the foliage around the houses is thick enough that it doesn't feel like they are very close other than the one immediate neighbor. When we were there only one other casita appeared to be occupied so we had the pool to ourselves each time we went out. The drive from Playa Grande to Tamarindo is kind of far, but there are water taxis on the beach that will take you across the estuary for just $1 per person. Hank and his property managers were great in answering any questions we had. The only downside was the dirt road to the house, it was pretty bad with potholes that were flooded some days, so we were glad to have an SUV- some of the locals we talked to out there said the road was supposed to be repaired soon so hopefully it's not an issue much longer. Overall a wonderful experience.
Very clean, pretty well stocked casita. Property managers were very attentive and helpful. One of the nicest vrbo properties we've stayed in. Only issue was road driving to property which was a mess. Apparently due to recent hurricane we were told. A heads up on that would have been nice though.
Casa Mambo was such a delight. The house is furnished with everything you need including bikes to jaunt around on. The kitchen makes it easy to fix meals and stay in for quiet evenings. The property manager and owner were very accommodating and made the stay stress free and relaxing. I can't wait to go back! Thanks
Your home was the perfect size for the four of us with plenty of living space & full service kitchen, although we found the walkable restaurants so yummy we didn't cook in like we anticipated. The privacy was unmatched & the pool out back was refreshing and certainly welcomed each day after experiencing the surf. Speaking of the surf, local Frijoles Locos set us up with a surf guide, picked us up with surfboards on board, and guided us to the perfect waves (5minute drive) for our groups variety of surf experience. They were a great combination of guide, teacher, and coach, and fun to surf with. Overall, your place is highly recommended and equipped with everything you'd expect but often lacking, Casa Mambo has it!
