June Stay in Tamarindo
This property is all about location! It's a great spot. We had 2 families equaling 11 people. The layout worked well for us. It was nice having Evila for a few hours per day to keep up with the cleaning.
The manager is having some health issues so the booking process was a bit cumbersome. The owner stepped in to make sure we had everything we needed. We are an independent group and don't require much once we're settled in.
We all loved Tamarindo - would go back.
Paid in full
The company pays the owners 3-5 business days after you check in now, which is different than before according to VRBO- as well as Joel and Daniel. This made the owners upset, and I can understand why if they are used to getting paid differently.
We paid in full months in advance using a credit card we have been with since 1992, and were accused of using a foreign credit card because HomeAway has their corporate location set in Ireland, which is what printed on the credit card statement provided to show proof we paid- not to mention the VRBO app saying we paid in full. Also have all email receipts. We paid.
They used all kinds of threats to try to coerce us to pay again which should have never happened as it ruined our vacation. These guys called and emailed us daily and through the night. There is another review on VRBO that says the same thing so it wasn’t just us.
As far as the property, the kids beds were hard, the hot tub didn’t work, and the elevator was super hot and sketchy so four flights of stairs was the norm.
I wonder how many people have fallen for this? So sad. What a waste of thousands of dollars.
We don't have a HOT TUB, its a cold tub. Elevators are not air conditioned. Their payment initially didn't go through. VRBO could not let him stay without paying. We just got off on the WRONG FOOT. We will give him a substantial discount if he wants to come again and kill him and his group with kindness. Of course he gets a FULL_TIME housekeeper.. We've had a lot of good reviews. From now and I will confirm all payments. we have thought about it and apologize to Mr A. Please give us another chance to serve you?
Beautiful home - just needs a property manager who takes care of the issues
The location is perfect, very nice home with lots of space, beautiful views. We had a great time and loved Tamarindo. Everyone is very nice down here. Surf was so much fun and waves every day. There were several issues with my experience with this home, mostly surrounding the property manager Joel Hookerman. From the time I booked the place and paid the full large fee for the 6 days we were staying there. I have used Homeaway and VRBO many times with no issues and very seamless transaction. Joel would call me after 12 AM while I was sleeping. He asked me at least 6 different time if I paid even a few weeks before our stay, it caused a lot of unneeded stress. We arrived at the condo on 4/22. We contacted Joel and he arrived. Each day we had maid service which was great, but she would come at 9 am and stay till 11 or 12 – so it was a little awkward while we were making breakfast and relaxing. One of the amenities we wanted was a hot tub, that is what we all really wanted after a long day of surfing. Upon arrival we realized the hot tub would not get hot, I called Joel and asked if they could fix it, I was told they need a part and it will take 3 weeks. There was a nest on the fan on the main balcony and 3 birds were living there, there was bird feces all over the porch and on most of the furniture on the balcony, as well as the guest room balcony. Someone taped the fan control, so we could not turn it on. The maid would clean up the feces every day. One night I sat in fresh feces. A bird died on the outside couch. I called Joel, he asked if I killed it, who says that, and he the birds never bothered any other guest and he was fully aware. He also stated the birds only poop in the nest, whci is absurd and they moved the furniture away from the fan. After I alerted him of the dead bird, he never sent anyone to remove the nest. For 2 days, the building had an issue with pipes and shut off the water, we couldn’t flush a toilet, drink water or shower. I called Joel again, he said he would call someone, his suggestion was we can always take dip in the pool. I could not even believe he said that. So, my guests had to shower outside at the pool shower. The property manager is not doing a great job with taking care of the place. I think VRBO should refund some of the fee, maybe half, for the unsanitary conditions, non-working hot tub and the 2 days without running water, especially we had to travel on flights without showers.
This was a very difficult guest who has some nerve. No one could satisfy them. . a lot of exaggeration. Go someplace else..Nobody provides service like we do. I've never had a review like this for my 2 million dollar Penthouse. Joel
Great retreat in CR
The place was just as described and Joel was very helpful. I look forward to returning to this place for years to come!
Great location & beautiful property
A group of 10 of us (5 couples) stayed in Sunrise Villa # 28. It was very clean and spacious and having Evila as our housekeeper daily was a real treat! The property is in the heart of Tamarindo, right across the street from the beach which was nice if you wanted to go back and forth quickly and easily. You can walk to anywhere you need to go from this location! Joel was very responsive during the entire process and always answered his phone. My only complaint was the hot tub was not hot otherwise we enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely stay here again!
This is a 2 story Penthouse with 5 bedrooms as close to Tamarindo Beach as you can get. You can see the entire coastline from this breezy, dreamy location. Below are miles of white sand swimmable beach frontage where the waves break clean making it an ideal spot for learning how to surf. This is the center of Tamarindo and you can walk to everything.. The all-tile pool is huge with a cascading waterfalls visible from both floors of the Penthouse. There's nothing like Roma in all of Guanacaste.
