About the property

La Casa De Papp, is house located in the little town of Tamarindo, Costa Rica only 45 minutes from the Liberia Airport.

The house has a total of 2 bedrooms. The Master bedroom has its own entrance and is equipped with a en-suite with his and her sinks. Quality bed linen is provided for all bedrooms.

There's A/C in every room with separate controls for each room, but for those who don't enjoy A/C there are ceiling fans in each bedroom and three in the main living room/kitchen.

The kitchen has beautiful granite counter tops. The villa benefits from two separate dining areas, one in the main living area and one outdoors on the lovely new patio set. You will find everything you need to prepare an amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner. Including a blender for those afternoon shakes and beverages. A microwave, coffee maker, toaster and water cooler to keep refreshed in the southern heat. To set the mood the house has candles thru out and hot water because we all know even if its 30 degrees we all love the option to have a hot shower.

Out Door Space


We travel to the tropics to enjoy just that, 'The Tropics'. The villa is designed so our guests can enjoy it's green surroundings and catch the tropical breezes. Therefore there's lots of outdoor space to lounge and relax. A spacious 'L-shaped' terrace practically surrounds the house. Spend a few hours in the hammock and you'll never want to get out.



The great thing about our location is that the most important thing is just a short walk away....the beach! In fact it's no more than a 8 minute walk. Lots of restaurants close by. There is a small convenient store (Super 2001) which you can buy everything you could possibly want and both only minutes from the house.

Casa Papp is the perfect choice for those who want a sense of privacy during their vacation yet maintain proximity to the nightlife, restaurants, and the beautiful beaches of Tamarindo.

About Corey Papp

I was born and raised in small town Airdrie, Alberta, Canada. I am very active and love the outdoor life. I like to keep involved within the community and love meeting new people. I previously worked for Sun Media. (The Calgary Sun) Started my career there as a creative artist in their Art Department and over the years made my way up to Assistant Manager which at the position I was responsible for over 25 Newspapers for Western Canada. This past January Sun Media had made major changes threw out its corporation which in the end I was no longer needed. I truly did love it working there but because of their changes that changed my life drastically. Making the decision to purchase a house here in Costa Rica and pursing my dream as a Freelance Graphic Designer and now Property Manager.

If your like myself and have a love for traveling and adventure this is where you want to be. Everything from relaxing on the beach, horseback riding, ATV, Zip lining, Sailing, Kayaking, Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Trail Hikes, Beach Volley, Deep Sea Fishing, Mud Baths, Hot Springs, Waterfalls and the list goes on and on.

I like to live life to the fullest and I truly believe there is not better place on earth to do so! Come see for yourself. You just might fall for Costa Rica as hard as I did!

Pura Vida!

Corey Papp purchased this house in 2013

Great place.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Casa Papp. Just right for two couples.

We found the house to be far enough from the action to be quiet but close enough to walk to it.

Very well stocked for all our needs.

Owner's Response: Great guests treated our home as their own. Like Sandy mentioned it's a walk into town with amazing live music and on your walk home it's monkeys and birds. PURA VIDA

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We stayed at Casa De Papp. It was awesome. Felt like home. The home was comfortable and clean. It is close enough to the middle of town that you can walk and many people do. But it was still fat enough away that you aren't right in the middle of the noise and nightlife. The beds are comfortable. The A.C. works great and they have just about everything you need there. We even had one of the monkeys hang out in the tree over the patio all day one day. If you're looking for fancy resort style accommodations, this isn't for you. If you're looking for someplace that feels a bit like home, this is the place. We loved it and will certainly be looking to stay here again when we go back in August.

Thanks for sharing your home!

Amazing trip

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, was the perfect size very clean and well taken care of! Even the security around the property made me feel very safe with my 5 year old daughter this was our first trip and was a concern of mine however was very very secure and felt safe!!! The beach is a close 5 minute walk!! Snorkelling gear and much more fun activities for you to access at the home! I can not say enough good things, the owners are extremely sweet and laid back people we appreciated them very much!! Will definitely be going back on a more regular basis!!

Casa Papp was more than I expected. This beautiful home had everything you need to make your vacation comfortable and then some. The home is tucked away in a quiet serene area within a 5 to 10 minute walk to the beaches, town, shops, restaurants and bars. We enjoyed sitting on the screened porch in the evenings and watching the lightning bugs in the massive umbrella trees that canopy the property. The mornings brought many species of singing birds and monkeys making their through the jungle. The owners were very accommodating and provided us with many helpful tips to make our first time to Tamarindo a great experience!! I highly recommend you consider Casa Papp for you travel destination!!

Survived El Niño!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year visiting Casa Papp. Corey had taken a couple of our suggestions to make it even more convenient and comfortable! We enjoyed again the tranquility and easy access to beach, restaurants and shopping. El Niño related drought and high winds caused a couple of interruptions in electricity and water service, but Corey and Graham got us through it with flying colors. Looking forward to visiting again next year!
