About Gerald Yuska

2006 marked our first visit to Costa Rica. I was advised by a friend to book something on the Pacific. We consequently put deposits on two condos which were a 20 minute drive to Tamarindo but which FORTUNATELY fell through. There was supposed to be a Mall and Marina coming to the first area, Paya Flamingo, which we considered for purchase in 2006. It's 2017 and that development never happened but it was a great selling point for those who bought the story.

We returned to Costa Rica in 2008 but this time booked a Condo in Playa Langosta with the absolute agreement that we were returning for the beauty and would “absolutely and positively" not look at condos. Obviously, that didn’t happen either. The condo we booked in Langosta was too long of a walk on a dirt road in the 88-95 weather with the sun beating down on you so we opted to diove to Tamarindo rather than walking. We were scheduled to return home in two day when we finally got to see the Impressive LaPerla Condo Building perched up on a hill that was under construction. When I saw it was 2200 sq. ft., a 50% deposit was easy to part with immediately in 2008.

We didn’t close until July 2011. On our visit first vacation in 2006, we drove to Tamarindo everyday where there’s a town, people, activity, surf, mos: Where there was something going on. Also, having two sons, we needed to find a place that would entice them to come. Tamarindo has the right surf for beginners. It sits between Playas Langosta and Playa Grande, best choices for the advanced surfers. You can walk along the seashore to Playa Langosta or walk across or take a $2 boat ride across the Estuary to Playa Grande. Grande for the really advanced surfers. The water is refreshing and warm everywhere. It's sunny every day. You can walk to grocery stores, Medical Clinic , even a tennis court all of which are between 2-6 minute walk. There’s even a Casino, but more important, Cafe Tico for avid coffee drinkers.

Gerald Yuska purchased this condo in 2008

Why Gerald Yuska chose Guanacaste

This property was the most desireable because of the short walk to town, the guarantee of a good night’s sleep away from the noise and activity of the town, it’s appeal to our children, now adults who love getting away from responsibilities in their adult lives. . It’s location up on a hill provides spectacular views of the Pacific and the nesting of the Howling Monkeys in trees across the street, almost more important than the view. It’s size, 2200 sq. ft. and Contemporary style but most important you’ll get a good night sleep on these New pillow-top mattresses or even the Italian sectional. It's quiet all day, especially important at night. You'll want a good night's sleep to get the most out of your vacation. It's just far enough from the noise of bars, traffic and restaurants. A Safe, Quiet location with 24 hour Security Guards and just far enough away from the bustling activity of the town. Downloading a Spanish ap would be helpful.

What makes this condo unique

The first condos we considered had Tunnel Vision like most condos everywhere with the exception of the LaPerla Condos. It's wall size windows in all rooms provide amazing, panoramic views. It reminds me of ‘Frank Lloyd Wright’s unique “one-with-nature" Design. The 15x15 round deck off of the kitchen is equipped with very comfortable, quality chairs and table. This is where you'll spend a lot of time relaxing and taking in the views. Exceptionally large canopies provide total protection from the direct rays of the sun. You can sit outside all day without needing any artificial protection from the sun and at the same time see and hear Ocean Sounds. You may be lucky enough to look down from the decks and see a few stray cows on the road below. The howling monkeys nest and swing from the branches of the trees to the right of the deck. You'll see iguanas along many roads a acs they scurrying up trees upon your approach. Plenty of iguanas everywhere but they,ll run away if you come anywhere near them so Not to Worry.

Bedrooms: Taking into consideration the hot climate, I thought it best to encase the king mattresses and all pillows in allergenic covers plus the usual fitted sheets.

There are plenty of blankets in case you put the air-conditioners up too high. There are screens on the doors if you don't like air-conditioning. You may enjoy the ocean breeze at night or during the day, throughout most of year. September and October, especially, will probably be rainy, amazing downpours that last 10 minutes or so and the Reliable Sun comes out. It's not usually the best time to be there. The year I was there in October, I really didn't experience the noindorm so I was told. I found the downpours amazing, something I've never experienced so I go down many different times of the year.

I have a wonderful, very trustworthy and amazing property manager that I trust completely. She was recommended by some Americans who own a condo in

Notes:
Tamarindo is the only place to be here on the Pacific in Costa Rica, Guanacaste is the province which includes Playa Tamarindo. In 2006 we put deposits on two condos in Flamingo and Potrero which both didn't work out. Returned in 2008 for the beauty with the agreement absolutely not to buy. I guess that wan’t absolute. 2006- Every day when we stayed in Flamingo we drove to Tamarindo where there was something going on, people walking around, a beach with great surf, shopping, restaurants and coffee shops. We thanked God, the deals fell through in 2006. Tamarindo is our 2nd home. The people are friendly, helpful and kind. It's the most beautiful place I've visited. You'll get plenty of Vitamin D which is all they're talking about on the news in Connecticut. So what's wrong with that. You'll sleep good at night in our condo where there are no loud noise from bars, traffic etc. It's safe and secure with 24 hour security.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The property was great just a 10min. Walk from downtown Tamarindo. We had a group of 6 and the property was just what we needed. The property manager and staff were very helpful. I would definitely recommend this property to others. It was spacious, clean, and it just felt like home away from home.

Great condo in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this condo. It is roomy and modern. Good views and a close walk to downtown. Connie was very pleasant and easy to work with. Her manager Wilberth was also good to work with. He even helped us arrange our transportation to and from the airport. We rented a golf care one day and explored some the areas that are a bit out of town.

Excellent - Modern fully equipped great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 fabulous days/nights at this location. First of all, Connie, the owner is so attentive and extremely accommodating. The condo itself was perfect. 3 bedrooms, 2 of them are en-suites which suited us perfectly. The kitchen is fully equipped and had everything we needed. It is a very secure fenced in location with a guard at the gate 24/7. The pool and gym facility is steps from the building and is absolutely perfect. The pool is clean and perfect temps and the gym is well equipped. My husband used it daily. You can easily walk into the quaint town of Tamarindo. Loads of shopping, eating out, beach activities and more. We had the most amazing time and didn't want it to end. Our daughter surfed twice while she was there. My only comment there, is be extremely diligent with sun screen. The sun is deceiving when the wind is blowing and you're playing in the ocean. Finally, Wilburt who is the property manager, is very helpful and will ensure you have what you need when you arrive and is available for questions via snap chat during your stay. Book this condo.. trust me you won't regret it. We will definitely be back. Thanks a million Marc, Mary and Kiera

Owner's Response: Dear Marc, Mary and Kiera, Wow. What a review!!! I feel the same as you and love your description our condo which I will have to incorporate in my description. We almost made a major mistake of buying real-estate in nearby towns. Our sons said they would never go to Costa Rica if we made that mistake. I, too, would have been bored to death not being able to watch the surf, the surfers, my favorite walk to the best coffee cafe paralleled only by Italy’s, great restaurants etc. etc. etc. and all within walking distance. Hello, Kiera, “ You must have an enviable tan which is the Upside for your discomfort. Take care, Connie Connie

Amazing Condo and vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and had an amazing time. The property and condo was very nice and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Connie and Wilberth were extremely helpful and we cannot wait to come back. We highly recommend this spot!

Owner's Response: Your review has fulfilled our goal of providing an escape/retreat from responsibility and a Perfect Way to begin a Wonderful Life together at our “Home Away from home.” We chose Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica for it’s location on the Pacific; for the town amenities and safety; for the reliable year round sunshine, the native people and ex-patriots and the many tourists but most important of all a location that our sons would want to go to often. Playa Tamarindo has fulfilled our goals and then some. Connie

Fantastic accommodation. Location. Short walk to beach & restaurants.

  • 4 of 5

Great spot for a family get away. Condo well equipped & spacious. The patio/balcony was a huge hit with the kids. We rented a golf cart to get around & were told that we could not use property charger. This should be addressed.

Overall experience was great. We will most definetly return.

Owner's Response: Dear David, Thank you for your response. I am so glad you found our condo to be "fantastic". I love going there almost as much as my sons and their friends. Definitely I will look into the recharging issue. My son is there now so I will ask him to address this and will get back to you with the solution. Thanks once again. Great way to begin 2017. Regarding the Golf Cart. There’s no longer a recharging issue. It’s been rectified. Thank you for the suggestion. Sincerely, Connie

Spectacular condo in fun, laid back beach town

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and nearly new condo is ideally located just above town and beach. Lots of space to spread out between prive bed/bath areas, huge living/kitchen area and large outdoor patio. Nice pool area when you want a private break from the huge beach. Owner was very responsive and made logistics easy.

Amazing strip of casual beachside restaurants and bars that take a full week to explore. Tons of activities within walking distance - surfing, fishing, horses, kayaking, etc. Short rides to zip lines, turtles, snorkeling, ATVs.

Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Dear John, Thank you for being our guests and enjoying what I enjoy there. Love the spaciouness of our condo, the town, Cafe Tico for coffee, and like you said, so many restaurants right on the beach, no high-risers, no obstructions to accessing the beach, warm water, viewing the surfers and boats. It’s by far that Playa Tamarindo is our favorite place to be as well. Walking that beach or enjoying a meal at one of the restaurants is one of the main forms of entertainment that is always amazing. My sons have have confirmed that if we’d purchased in other locations we’d considered they’d have not interest in vacationing there. I’d be bored with those places as well. Thank you once again for your response,, Connie .
