Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: The owners fell in love with Costa Rica when Andrew and Courtney were engaged on the beach at Tamarindo in March of 2010. They furthered this love affair by marrying in January of 2011 in Manuel Antonio on the southern Pacific coast. The couples dear friend Walker also found the country special while attending the wedding. Five months later, the three of us owned our little part of paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Tamarindo, Costa Rica:
Quite simply, this condominium is in the very best location in Tamarindo. The condo is well decorated and offers all of the comforts needed to rough it for a vacation. The large pool and proximity provides a family friendly vacation option for us with children ranging from newborn to 12 years old. As avid fishermen, Tamarindo provides ample fishing options, however the dining and shopping option are second to none in Costa Rica.
