(ADD the 1 bedroom CASITA for up to 16 ppl at a small extra cost or free sometimes)
The pricing quoted in this advert is for the whole house only - contact me for other options.
We charge by guest numbers. That way small groups can still rent the house. We think it's fair. More guests, more cost involved.
If this is still not clear...if you book the whole house for 4 guests and want to invite 10 guests, obviously the price will go up. More guests more cost. Can't make it clearer than that.
Please note there is a minimum $5,000 per week net charge minimum in January after 6 Jan
More than 5 sleeping and the price rises.
And a $6,000 per week net charge minimum at Xmas and New Year.
More than 5 sleeping and the price rises.
Max number of people is 'usually' 10-12 and that may mean the caretaker staying in the casita on the property. Hardly ever in fact. You will still have exclusive use of the house, pool, garage and garden.
Our neighborhood is all above a million dollar properties which is a lot for this country. A lot of 'wow's when guests arrive.
We have a 5 star rating on our properties.
DO YOU WANT …
AMAZING LOCATION (not miles up a dirt road or way out of town!)
AMAZING OCEAN VIEWS (amazing ocean views in town - even our neighbors are amazed when they see our views compared to theirs! And their houses are for sale from $1.2m to $2.5m!)
the ability to walk to the beach & major surf schools in 5 mins/400m (past monkeys, birds, lizards, etc.) plus restaurants, bars, shops IN Tamarindo town itself. You can leave the car at home and walk or get a cheap taxi ride home ($3) or just not bring a car. Or hire a golf cart for that vacation feeling. (We get great deals on golf carts for guests)
You can also walk to the back end of town, Avineda Central (Sharky's, Dragonfly, Seasons, La Esquina, La Baula, Mini Golf, Wok n Roll, The Patio, Falafel Bar, NO1, Long Boards, Green Papaya, Artificial soccer pitch, Skate park, basketball hoop, gym, Thursday night market, etc. etc.) in under 5 mins via the back way, not shown on the map. Either a short path through the forest where you are almost guaranteed to see howler monkeys up close and then a paved, lit road, OR, a straight paved, well lit road. The forest route is slightly quicker.
A tranquil location where you can hear the waves but no traffic...and no near noisy neighbors.
in a huge house – 360sqm or almost 4000 sqft with 2 floors of great ocean views… including fantastic views of 4 beaches (Tamarindo, Grande, Ventanas, Langosta) and the whole of the pacific ocean horizon…..with uninterrupted sunset views every day!
A big pool (10mx5m) with a purpose built water slide (hours of fun for the kids) from the 2nd floor of the house. Not a condo, so a big PRIVATE pool.
A huge modern 2nd floor roofed but open sided entertainment/chill out area in which to relax and chill out with a 55inch Sony Bravia TV and Roku (internet TV streamer like Apple TV) You can easily 'throw' or 'cast' your content to the TV from your tablet/laptop/smartphone. Or watch Netflix, Hulu, etc.
2 MASTER SUITES (with king beds) each with dramatic views over 3 beaches…. Tamarindo, Grande/Ventanas and Langosta/Avellanas....and 3 MORE BEDROOMS (including another queen room with ensuite and a double twin which forms a King) + 4.5 BATHS in total. (3 bedrooms with ensuites). No stepping over each other here. No one needs to sleep on a couch or a sofa bed! Or wait for a bathroom.
Downstairs is a fully enclose-able(with AC) modern/shabby chic area while upstairs is like staying in an ultra modern villa with open sides and a fully enclosed master suite with AC. all enclosed areas have AC except bathrooms which have fans.
We have just finished our major renovation - polished concrete floors, lovely new finishes inside and out and all modern white tropical style with lots of natural wood touches. The people who did Sunset House and Casa Alang Alang did ours. See photo descriptions for details.
Very few bugs! Places lower down and closer to the beach and the estuary have a bug/ant/mosquito problem (just read the reviews on tripadvisor!). The estuary is basically a mosquito factory all year round.
This house is designed for bringing the outside in (with as few bugs as possible!) so open windows, ocean breezes, open entertaining areas and use of ceiling fans rather than having the A/C on 24/7. Bedrooms have bug screens on windows where possible and where they don't interfere with the view. We hardly ever see a mosquito!
Of course sometimes it's just toooo darn hot and you have to close all the windows and put the AC on. All rooms have AC including the very large downstairs living area.

This is our only property (in CR) so we can give you our full attention if you have a problem, unlike some agencies that handle lots of properties and don't offer a personal service.
This is 5 star accommodation and at this price you will not find anything more luxurious with these qualities, amazing views, size and location... IN TAMARINDO TOWN. Maybe outside of town but who wants to drive miles every time you want to go for dinner? Also, the driving at night is challenging due to no street lights anywhere out of town!
There are nice large bathrooms, some with double basins, 24hr hot water, large showers/tub, nice bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen with stainless everything... dishwasher, US style fridge freezer with ice and water dispenser, microwave, gas hob/oven, toaster, rice cooker, liquidizer, coffee machine, nespresso-style Britt capsule coffee also, etc. etc.
Even washing the dishes is a pleasure while you look straight out at blue skies and ocean! See the pics.
