Property description

Welcome to Casa Aigua! Casa Aigua is unlike any other property available for rent in Tamarino, Costa Rica. We just lowered our rate from $550 per night so take advantage! Our property is located only a short 5 minute walk to either the beach or into the heart of town, and features two houses on the property. The main house with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, has been completely renovated to include a very luxurious master bedroom with a master bathroom on-suite. Additionally, there are two separate one bedroom/one bathroom units on the main level of the guest house. These units walk right out to the pool. Our property is ideal for either a single family or two couples, but can accommodate a larger group of friends or family who want to forgo the standard hotel experience.

Our gated property begins with a prominent cast iron main gate which opens to a beautiful flower lined driveway leading to the property. Once on the property, the main house and guest house are set within native landscaping, featuring banana trees, mango trees, and palms. Centered between the two house is a beautiful pool with all new stucco and a brand new deck and privacy fence added January 1, 2016. Depending on the season you may just see the howler monkeys cross right over our roof tops!

The entire property features:
- air conditioning
- cable TV
- wifi
- maid service
- full linens and towels
- washer and dryer
- oven/fridge/microwave/coffee makers
- new outdoor wood burning grill, for your catch of the day added 1/1/16
- brand new deck and privacy fence added 1/1/16
- parking

Heather and I first traveled to Tamarindo on our honeymoon, in July 2012. After visiting Tamarindo we fell in love with the town and the people and purchased the home we honeymooned in to be able to share the experience with others. We have since stayed at Casa Aigua more than 10 times, visiting at minimum twice a year, and have continued the renovation begun by the previous owners. It is our goal for anyone that stays at our place to realize the beauty of Costa Rica and have as wonderful of an experience as we always do.

Our property is quite spacious and will more than adequately house 12 guests. We have an on-site property manager, Charlie, who lives in the upper apartment of the guest house and is there to maintain the property and to better assist you on your visit. Charlie is a Captain on a fishing boat in Tamarindo, and so at times he may be working during the day but we can always assist you if you have questions. Guests are encouraged to have Charlie arrange their tours, ask questions, and even cook a gourmet meal if they are so inclined. Charlie will never hinder your vacation, but is there as a tremendous asset who knows everybody in Tamarindo and can set you up with whatever adventure you seek. Heather and I are very grateful that Charlie is there on all of our visits.

Lastly, please know that we truly do hope that each and every guest that stays with us enjoy their visit. While we are new to VRBO we have already had several guests which have had an incredible time staying at Casa Aigua . The property is beautiful and well maintained. It is also centrally located and is only a 5 minute walk to the beach or to the city center. If you choose to stay with us, we can arrange for transportation for Liberia airport directly to our front door and will promise to deliver an experience that will make you return year after year.

Please do not hesitate to contact us, and please visit our main site.

Our property is perfect for a family vacation, group of friends traveling, or a honeymoon just as we first visited. It goes without saying if you are visiting Costa Rica you should experience several adventures, and Charlie will be there to ensure your adventures are top notch.

Update Jan 2016: We hope you have found the updated information above helpful. We have now owned and rented our property for the last 3 years. We have had some amazing experiences as owners, and some experiences that we have learned from. Casa Aigua is truly our home, and we hope that all guests understand we do the absolute best to continue to improve our property to enhance your experience. To that degree, our home is not a Four Season's resort. It has been our experience, that travelers who are looking for an incredible adventure, to explore Costa Rica, and to enjoy all of its magic are the travelers that are best suited for our home. Those who seek a more catered experience, should look to some of the all inclusive resorts in the area. Managing a home in Costa Rica, means you cannot just run to Target to get supplies, so we visit twice a year and show up with 6+ boxes full of supplies each trip. We continually bring new towels, linens, and housewares. In Dec 2015, we brought down all new coffee makers, towels, plates and glassware, silverware, some pillows, throw rugs, and bedding. We will always continue to make these efforts. Additionally, for the 2016 season, we added a brand new deck and privacy fence, a new outdoor wood burning grill, fresh paint, and all new stucco around the pool and grounds. These additions are in addition to previous upgrades: solar hot water heater in the main house, new couches in the main house, all new teak lounge chairs (built by Charlie), and new king bed in an apartment, new window coverings, all new tvs, upgraded internet service, and a new washer and dryer. Update 5/1/2016 are in the processes of adding a beautiful custom built table suitable for 8, new sleeper-sofa covers for both apartments have been created to match the new couches in the main house, and an increased water capacity for the property for the dry season has been added. We only mention these items to demonstrate our commitment to your experience.

Experiences we have learned from, include a recent stay from our family. Their only constructive criticism, was on the topic of our maid service. Our ladies do their best to clean our home and have it up to the standards many of us have. The hard water in CR, poses a challenge for shower glass and we continue to try to improve that process by bringing down supplies from the US. Understanding this, we hope you will find our place in excellent condition, but again if there is something that needs improved we will do our best to fix the situation. We will be visiting our property soon and will continue to make improvements. We believe our house is in the best condition it has ever been in and we hope you love our home as much as we do.

Thank you,
Chad, Heather, and Calvin.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We first visited Tamarino and Casa Aigua on our delayed honeymoon in July 2012. We fell so much in love with the property, the beaches, the town, and the people that we purchased the place from our friends in October.

Why the Owner Chose Tamarindo, Costa Rica:
I may be bias but this property is absolutely amazing. The family before us completely renovated the property, adding a master bedroom and on-suite bathroom in the main house. The entire property is beautifully maintained, and the location is perfect. We have traveled to Tamarindo more than 10 times since we purchased in 2012, visiting a minimum of 2x per year. We have only rented a car 1 time as a result of flying into San Jose. There is really no need for a car with our location unless you appreciate the convenience factor a car provides. We had our first child in June 2013, and brought him down for the first time when he was only 10 weeks old. We hope to move to Tamarindo in a couple years and to continue renting our property with a more hands on approach. So anyone who stays is truly staying in our home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property is a gated residence with an on-site manager who is there to make your stay the best it can be. We have every amenity a traveler could hope for including pool side WIFI incase you still have to work while on vacation. It is our goal to make sure everything you could wish for is met. ***update 1/1/16 brand new deck, privacy fence, and stucco work.
