About the Property

studio, 1 bath, Sleeps 3

Located on a quiet hilltop in Tamarindo with spectacular unobstructed ocean and forest views, Casa Bambora is just 5 minutes walk from the main strip in Tamarindo where you can find a wide variety of restaurants and stores, and just 10 minutes walk from world famous Tamarindo beach.

A Studio at Casa Bambora can accommodate up to 3 people and is equipped with a full kitchen, AC, 32' HD TV with cable, wireless Internet, private bathroom with hot water, king size bed, private balconies and more.

Up on the fourth there is a furnished observation deck with an amazing 360 degree view, great for coffee in the morning while enjoying the panoramic ocean views and wide variety of birds that visit frequently or a cold drink while enjoying the spectacular sunsets over Tamarindo bay!

Down on the first floor is Casa Bambora's bar. With fully equipped kitchen and BBQ area, this is where the guests enjoy spending the majority of their time socializing and cooking up the catch of the day, or just relaxing to the soothing sound of the waterfall at the pool which is surrounded by a tropical garden with plenty of hammocks and chairs to lounge around in.

Guests at Casa Bambora also have access to laundry facilities as well as onsite parking and myself and staff here at Casa Bambora will make you feel right at home and are happy to give you advice about anything you need to know about the area, best restaurants, tours, places to visit, etc...

Having bought the property in 1992, I was able to have the pick of the best view lots in Tamarindo with the easiest and closest walk to the town. Casa Bambora is just high enough to see over the tree tops and is one of the only lots in Tamarindo with unobstructed views of the San Francisco Estuary in the Las Baulas National Park as well as spectacular ocean views that span Playa Langosta, Tamarindo and Playa Grande.

One of the great things about Casa Bambora is it's location. Having bought the property in 1992 I was able to basically have the pick of the best lots in town. It's just far enough from the Tamarindo nightlife that you can get a peaceful night sleep unlike the rentals down in the town and just high enough where you can see right over the treetops and you get a great breeze and an amazing ocean and mountain view and still just a couple minutes walk to town and only 10 minutes walk to the beach.

Other Activities: canopy tours


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: I'm from Huntington Beach, California. I spent many years traveling to the tropics, mostly Hawaii and mainland Mexico to surf in the warm clean water. I finally made it to Costa Rica in 1992 and discoverd Tamarindo. It was everything I was looking for and more. Nineteen years later I'm still here and still loving it. Pura Vida!

Why the Owner Chose Tamarindo, Costa Rica:
I came to Tamarindo in 1992 on a surf trip and fell in love with the place! After having spent the previous 12 years traveling to Hawaii, Mexico and Fiji for surf, I finally made it to Costa Rica, a good friend of mine had been to Tamarindo and told me that it was similar to Hawaii, but less crowded and more affordable and I should check it out. Back then the population was less than 100 people, it was quiet and the weather was great as well as the surf. I knew right away this is where I wanted to live. Real Estate was still inexpensive and I basically had the pick of the litter as far as lots were concerned. It's been 19 years I've seen lots of changes, but I still couldn't think of a better place to live.
