Why Jennifer Richter chose Guanacaste

This property offers all the commodities of your own home, set conveniently in Tamarindo's residential area within walking distance to Tamarindo Beach and the town's center. You can find restaurants, shopping, beach activities, pharmacies, grocery store all within walking from the condo. Casa Ela #3 offers more privacy compared to other condos in the center of town as they are individual homes, only 4 total and share a pool and common area. You will hear monkeys and wildlife just outside your windows in the trees and Casa Ela far enough away from the town's lively nightlife that you won't know you are in Tamarindo's center.

Casa Ela - everything you want in a rental

  • 5 of 5

Our first time booking a rental home as opposed to a hotel and I couldn't have been happier.

I had some questions specific to the property and Costa Rica in general and Jennifer emailed and spoke with me on the phone and answered everything I asked. Booking was easy and straight forward.

The home was spacious for our family of four - 2 adults, 4 year old and 8 month old. She had a pack n play and high chair for rent which made traveling with the baby so much easier (less to bring from home). The washer & dryer came in handy more than once. Plenty of linens and beach towels. We used the pool a few afternoons but spent most of the time at the many different beaches within a short drive from the house. 10-15 minute walk to town where you'll find tons of restaurants, souvenir shops, surf shops etc. Property was clean and everything you see in the pictures.

If you're thinking of visiting Costa Rica, go! If you're thinking of booking this property, do it!

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

We looked extensively for our accommodation for our two weeks in CR. THIS place is and was everything and more than we had hoped. Jennifer seemed like she was right by my side answering all questions prior to booking. She made our selection so easy. The house was private and gorgeous and a lovely walk (two directions) down to the shops and surf. We have a 10 year old who really enjoyed that every day. The house was exceptionally clean, exceptionally decorated and had everything we needed. I couldn't pick fault at all with anything. I run a few of my own VRBOs and I learnt a thing or two about this place.

Jennifer is well connected in Tamarindo and pretty much organised our tours and reservations and was a great guide on all fronts. The pool is beautiful and clean and private too! The howler monkeys were out on occasion which provided us with entertainment for sure! I really can't rate this house enough. This is the only place we will come back to. Oh and the WIFI was always working and quick!

A perfect location in Tamarindo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Ela for five nights. This was the perfect location and place for our family. I liked the short walk into town, but it was nice being far enough away from all of the noise--we felt like we were in our own villa. We were in the ocean all day, then would come home for a swim, went to dinner and then came home for another swim. Perfect!

The house was beautiful, comfortable and quiet. Jennifer and her family were very gracious and helped us with finding activities to do while we were there. If you stay here, be sure to take a morning walk up the hill from Casa Ela. It is a nice, shaded walk and we were lucky enough to see howler monkeys above us. Great place!

A Wonderful Place to Stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was a little apprehensive about coming to Costa Rica and the condo where we would be staying. When we walked through the gate of the small condo complex, we knew we had made the right decision choosing Casa Ela. The landscape, pool and condos were lovely. The condo was beyond our expectations that we had seen in the listing. It was very spacious and the decor was done in excellent taste. Everything was very clean. We had all the comforts of home and then some. It was so nice to also sit outside on the comfy outdoor sofas and have our coffee every morning.

Jennifer, Tito and even Luna were so willing and helpful to answer any questions we had about where to go and what to do and went above and beyond to make reservations for some of the day excursions we wanted to take.

We would without any hesitation go back and stay at Casa Ela and will recommend it to our friends that are planning a trip to Costa Rica.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Ela for 2 weeks at the start of April. We had a great time and really enjoyed it. Jennifer was a gracious host and was always ready to help us with tips on everything Costa Rica can offer. The beds were super comfortable and having our own cooking facilities gave us the opportunity to eat in when we wanted to. The wifi was fast and convenient. The location is just far enough away for peace and quiet, yet close enough to get to all of the Tamarindo action when desired. A really good experience.

Tamarindo is one of the most popular 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 that has a large surf community. It 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.

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.
