A lovely place for two

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We loved being on the beach...just a short walk down a path and a few stairs and we were right there. It was a little bit of a distance to walk to the main centre of tamarindo but we got used to that very quickly. The apartment was small but well kept and clean. Would have liked a comfy couch instead of a futon in the tv area but again that's only minor. We did miss having a stove and it caught us off guard since we picked up our groceries before we saw the place. We made do with the toaster oven and electric fry pan which was fine. Donna was the best! She was very accommodating and helpful. Thank you Donna for making our stay stress free!

Private, Romantic gem!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I spent a couple nights at this comfortable little home located on a semi-private beach, away from the hustle/bustle, but near wonderful restaurants, markets, etc. We were delighted to enjoy 10 monkeys, welcoming and entertaining us in the back yard the first morning of our stay, while enjoying Costa Rican Coffee and pastries, as well as delicious fruit we had purchased at the nearby mercado. The beach was lovely. We enjoyed beautiful sunrise and sunset views at charming beach front restaurants that we walked to from our "home" along the beach.

The house is not fancy, but cozy and was very clean. The owner/managers were very responsive and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this place and hopefully return again in the future.

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We compared this property to others we have stayed at and loved this location. Perfectly placed between Lagosta and Tamarindo. You are intimate with the beach and away from the touristas. Donna, was incredibly helpful when we needed a little coaching with situations that were not familiar to us. Big kitchen, sitting area and porch. Can hear the ocean.

Beautiful and private piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week at Corona del Mar and loved it. It was our first visit to Costa Rica but won't be our last. This is an excellent location in Tamarindo, at the quiet secluded end of the beach. Donna was very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and activities as well as arranging kayaking and zip-line trips. We had a beach-side unit with a lovely spot to sit and have morning coffee while watching the ocean (and local wildlife) a family of monkeys came to visit along with iguanas and a variety of birds. The kitchen is small but has all you need to make breakfast or have a few snacks on hand. Great restaurants and shopping is only 10 minutes away. The beach is just down the steps. We rented a car at the airport but would probably choose not to next trip. I would definitely recommend the beach-side units here and plan to return.
