Why Bob Wilson chose Tamarindo

When I saw this home, I knew it had the potential to be what I dream of in Costa Rica. It allows for the privacy and ability to enjoy indoor/outdoor living that is unique to this area all year. I needed to make a substantial investment to bring it up to the level of luxury and convenience that I wanted. I believe that in looking at the photos, you will agree that we have achieved that. I know you will agree when you visit.

What makes this house unique

The home is very private and can accommodate a large family or group. At the same time, it is within comfortable walking distance of virtually everything.

Casa Feliz is a DUMP!!! Owner should be embarrassed

  • 1 of 5

We returned from Tamarindo last night with two other families. We are a group of 10, five adults and five children ranging from 14-19 years old. We arrived at Casa Feliz a week ago and planned to stay 7 nights. It was so horrible, we packed up and found another house in Tamarindo after our second night and we would have left earlier, but we couldn’t find a house large enough to accommodate our group.

It is a prison (not literally), but it is the only way we can describe it. There was NOTHING redeeming about the place (NOTHING).

We had a great week despite having to stay two nights at Casa a Feliz.

Bars on every window, razor wire on the fence, no indoor area to sit and gather, other then a wood kitchen table and bench seating, pool deck is unsafe to name a few.

If you’re going to take a vacation in Costa Rica, do yourself a favor find another place to stay

Spacious, great location, reasonable, well managed

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 friends was very happy with our stay at Casa Feliz. The house was nice and spotless, and even the smaller bedrooms were good size. Besides a full kitchen there was an outdoor grill and semi-kitchen. The neighborhood seemed safe anyway, but the house was fully gated so we felt completely secure, and there were safes in every room for valuables. The price seemed very fair compared to comparable places we considered.

The house was close enough that you could walk to most places in town, though I would still recommend renting a golf cart. We rented one from the people who manged the house so it was waiting for us when we got there, and we didn't have to deal with returning it on the last day.

The management company was very helpful all around. They arranged transportation from/to the airport (huge help if you don't know the town, as the streets don't seem to have numbers) and also lined up most of our activities. We had a few small issues with the house, and they sent someone over right away to fix it. The local phone they loaned us was helpful.

All and all we were very happy with Tamarindo, with the House, and with the service that came with it. Will definitely return in the coming years.

Could have been better for us

  • 2 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Feliz as were down there attending the wedding of our son. The pool area was a real delight and was the best feature of the home. Unfortunately, we had some problems with the home that caused us to expend our own resources or time to get addressed.

1. WiFi - the WiFi in the home did not work and it took almost the whole week to get fixed. This was a real problem for us as many in our group were dependent on it to communicate with each other as we did not purchase cell phone data plans. We would not have rented the home if we knew the WiFi was not working in advance.

2. Air conditioning in Bonita suite never worked and was very uncomfortable for my sister and brother in law.

3. Euphoria Suite - this unit had several issues with it and our lovely in laws were gracious to endure it without complaining too much. The shower was not usable as there was no water pressure. The ceiling fan could not be used as it was turning very fast and was out of balance and we were fearful it was fall off the ceiling. There was an Iguana nesting in the wall/ ceiling area and was very disturbing at all hours.

4. Rental cars - The other problem we had was with the rental electric cars. We lost a day of use to get #36 as the head lights went out and we could not use it on evening and had a dangerous ride home. This same unit had one tire that was low and we had to get it over to you to get it repaired as well. We were not given any compensation for these problems.

5. Key to front gate - when we got to house we were given a huge pile of keys (20 total). It took us several days to figure out what key went where. The biggest issue was there was only one key out of the 20 keys that went to the front gate. This turned into a logistical problem with our large party of family and friends going and coming.

There is only one word to describe this house, the service we received and the location.... AMAZING. We went to Tamarindo to celebrate my 30th bday, there were a total of 10 people on this trip. From the time of arrival to the time of departure we had an amazing experience here. This house was big enough to accomodate everyone. The pcitures on line are exactly what the house looks like... beautiful! We were minutes away from amazing restaurants, shops and the ocean. The house had everything from bedding, towels, kitchen appliances (pots, pans etc) that enabled us to cook when we didnt feel like going out. The service we recieved while staying at this house was over the top... We had a concierge come in and book all of our excursions for us so we didnt have to book them in town. She was amazing and very helpdful. I would come and stay here again any day. This place was amazing and I would recommend it to anyone!!

An Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented Casa Tres Bonita in Tamarindo with a group of friends. The stay was absolutely incredible! The house was super clean and in great shape, and had everything we could have ever needed! We were even able to take advantage of the cooking facilities/pots/pans and dishes on a couple of the nights to make our own dinners. Everything (restaurants, beach, convenience store, shopping) was within close walking distance from the house which was also great. Bob went above and beyond to organize some sightseeing tours for the group as well, which made our stay even more relaxing!

I would highly recommend it!

casa tres bonitas: heaven for everyone

  • 5 of 5

casa tres bonitas is a beautiful vacation home, i felt unworthy. it is newly renovated and has all the amenities you need to vacation in comfort. the pool and communal spaces provide a great place to relax, socialize, and plan out the day. it's a perfect fusion of relaxation and adventure. the house is secluded so you have privacy if you want it. conversely, it's in close proximity to everything you'd want to do... beaches, rain forest, restaurants, bars, etc. everything is within walking distance which was awesome since i stopped running once i got married. we spent most of the day exploring the local culture and terrain. by day's end, we were exhausted but it was refreshing to know we could come back to tres bonitas to recuperate. i highly recommend this property if you like to vacation in luxury at a very reasonable price.
