Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most amazing time at Casa Mono Malo! The location is absolutely perfect because so close to town, but had the privacy of a secluded beach. Tamarindo had great restaurants, beaches and easy access to anything you really need or wanted to do. The best feature about this house is the pool patio area- the more unbelievable views, many seating options, and a large infinity pool which overlooks the beach. The beach was rocky so not a swim beach, but a great stroll beach especially for tide pools. We were all in heaven and the kids truly loved the pool so much and were in the pool every time we were at the house. The staff was great and the rooms were clean and well maintained. We easily fit 2 families (2 parents rooms and 2 kids rooms) in the house with ample room for everyone. The air-conditioning was key in the bedrooms and Tv room especially with the 90+ degree days. Thank you for a fabulous family vacation.

Fantastic home and all-around experience

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning home, grounds, and location. Above expectations, even from the pictures. Concierge (Andrea) was extremely helpful and valuable as well as the staff. We had 3 couples stay and had plenty of room/privacy. Highly recommended.

A lovely home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

From our 78 year old to our youngest 9 year old, we all loved our stay at the beautiful Mono Malo. Everything was perfect, including being pampered by Lisette and Pepe. What a wonderful home for a family vacation in Tamarindo. The biggest problem we had was not wanting to leave our comfort and beautiful gardens to go beaching, surfing and zip lining. We all agreed that we want to come back again and enjoy the hospitality and comfortable home. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Amazing House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house! We have rented many oceanfront homes and this is one of our favorites!! The pool is wonderful and very large. You can see it from Google Earth! The teens really enjoyed the apartment above the garage. The management was also very helpful.

The only thing against the house is that they don't warn you that the upper level is not part of the rental. You can see it in the pictures and they don't let you know until you arrive that it is not part of the rental. Still, a great rental!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the excellent review Coleen and thanks for staying with us at Mono Malo! A quick note in regards to the confusion re the upper level: "The only thing against the house is that they don't warn you that the upper level is not part of the rental. You can see it in the pictures and they don't let you know until you arrive that it is not part of the rental." For clarification...we are a bit confused because we are 100% forthcoming with all of our guests!! We specifically do not have photos of the upper level of Mono Malo online? That area is a small room that is only used by the owners as an office and storage area for their personal belongings and has never been marketed/advertised as part of the home for rent. Again, thank you and we hope to see you again soon! ~Brian Bratton, Mono Malo

Pura Vida~ Casa Mono Malo

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days in Tamarindo at Casa Mono Malo. We were two families of 8 and we fit comfortably with 4 adults and 4 teenagers. The open kitchen and living space was ideal for entertaining and relaxing. The views are spectacular and no picture can ever describe the beauty of this property. We have been to Costa Rica many times and rented amazing homes, but no view has ever compared to the one you have here. There are no words to describe the sunsets. They were breathtaking.

The beach was beautiful, but very rocky. No swimming, surfing, or boogie boarding can be done directly in front of the house. You are in walking distance to a nice beach area or you can drive into Tamarindo for surfing. This was a bit of a disappointment for the kids because we thought we could enjoy the beach without leaving the house.

The main house has 3 bedrooms. The master has a connected bathroom with outside views from the shower with its own air conditioner unit in the bedroom and bathroom. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom and has an open outdoor shower. There is no air conditioner in this bathroom. There is no air conditioner in the kitchen, but there is a living area with air, seating, and a television. There is also a separate apartment style bedroom with its own kitchen area and bathroom. This is separate from the main house and above the garage. The kids loved it! It also had its own Wi-Fi.

The staff was very attentive to every need including scheduling a deep tissue massage (twice)on the property where you can hear the ocean breeze, restaurant reservations and excursions. The white water rafting is a must. So much fun! The property was very well maintained. We had a daily housekeeper who was awesome and the pool and outdoor living area was cleaned every morning. There was also a night time security guard so we felt very safe throughout our stay.

The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. The outdoor kitchen/grilling area was also well stocked and had a gas grill we used a lot. Really nice beach towels were also provided. All the bedding and bathroom linens were very clean and very well maintained!!

We hate we had to leave and definitely miss waking up to the sound of the ocean!

We loved Mano Malo

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing even better than the pictures. We had 3 kids with us, 2 4 year olds and a 7 year old. It's a great location for kids they loved the pool and at low tide they played in the tide pools collecting seashells and hermit crabs. The beach was beautiful and not at all crowded. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wish we were still there!!

Great Place to Stay!

Loved the house. The pictures don't do it justice. The pool area was magnificent. The dining/ kitchen opens up to the outside. I would definitely stay on this property again.
