                                                                      Steve H.

The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the beautiful, safe surroundings and Jennifer, the owner, was so accommodating and friendly. A bit of a walk to the main strip, but nice after a dinner on the beach. We definitely recommend this accommodation. We also ate at the Dragonfly restaurant on our last night and it was amazing.

                                                                      We stayed at Casa Ela for a week and loved it! It was the perfect location, close enough to walk to town and the beach but far enough to get away from the hustle and bustle. The villa was well set up with a kitchen fully equipped, your own laundry and a private patio area. This was our fifth time coming to the Tamarindo area and this was the first time we had a restful sleep. We were starting to think that uncomfortable beds was just apart of visiting Costa Rica. NO! The beds were sooo comfortable! Thank you Jennifer!

                                                                      We loved the set up of Casa Ela. There are four private villas that share a common pool. We met some nice people during our stay. We rented a golf cart for a couple of days so we could sightsee the area around. We highly recommend this spot!

                                                                      Thanks again Jennifer for a comfortable and wonderful vacation!.......shhhhhh (don’t tell too many people).

                                                                      Nice seclusion

                                                                      Tina F.

                                                                      Enjoyed our family vacation here. It was nice to have a 2 bedroom, 2 bath with kids. We cooked a few meals and the king beds were very comfortable. We had all the necessary conveniences. The bungalow is only 10 min. walk from town and beach but very quiet, which is nice during the busiest time of the year, Xmas-new Year. Jennifer is right next door and was able to answer any questions for us. Would definitely stay here again!

                                                                      The property was wonderful! The bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. Plenty of living space. We truly appreciated the air conditioning when not outdoors. The pool on the property is fantastic. Beautiful private setting. The beach and many restaurants are within walking distance. A car is not necessary. Jennifer was wonderful!! She provided us with many awesome recommendations including restaurants and excursion recommendations. Great stay and we look forward to returning.

I remember you said you have rented many properties on VRBO and we are glad ours exceeded your expectation. We hope to have you back one day at Casa Ela!

                                                                      julie m.

                                                                      My family of four stayed here over Winter break, Dec 27-Jan 10. We had a wonderful stay, we did not rent a car as we preferred to walk everywhere. We did rent a golf cart for a couple of days to tour around the area ($50 a day). The property owner was very friendly and had great recommendations as far as dining and adventures!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Tamarindo is one of the most popular tropical destinations in the province of Guanacaste, just one hour’s drive from Liberia International Airport. This quaint, friendly beach town on Costa Rica’s north Pacific coast offers various Tamarindo vacation rentals and is home to various surfers from around the world. The famous surfing movie – Endless Summer – was filmed on the beaches of Tamarindo and is the perfect beach for new to experienced surfers and admirers. Tamarindo has managed to maintain its Costa Rican culture while welcoming visitors from around the world every year, who travel here for eco-tourism, relaxation, surf and fun. Safe, kid-friendly and centrally located for easy access to volcanoes, waterfalls, lakes, rivers and national parks, it’s no wonder Tamarindo’s tourism industry has been booming in recent years, bringing with it an influx of excellent restaurants and boutique-style shops featuring local designers, jewelry, and handmade souvenirs. You can also visit outdoor markets with local artisans and food (Saturday’s only), organic restaurants and more! Tamarindo is home to some of the top surf breaks in the country, attracting pro surfers, beginners and everything in between. It’s clear the surf culture of Tamarindo has stayed strong – the laid-back vibe here is visible in the smiling faces and friendliness of the locals. The long, clean beach is great for watching the sunset and the beachfront road is lined with cafes, restaurants, boutiques, vendor stalls, live music and surf shops. Tamarindo has a healthy nightlife, excellent restaurants serving food from around the world, supermarkets, several banks, pharmacies and clinics, a post office, internet cafes and yoga studios, and everything within walking distance. Also, just a short drive from your Tamarindo vacation rental are various unique attractions such as the largest labyrinth in the world made out of cactus, or a 400lb pig that relaxes at a beachfront restaurant and swims, and more!
