Overview

About the property

La Esquina #7 is located in a quiet, safe, and low-density residential neighborhood of oceanfront estates and elegant condos. There’s green space on three sides of the condo, providing a home to howler monkeys, tropical birds, and iguanas. On the fourth side, across a seldom-traveled road, is a canopied park with a winding path to the white-sand beach of the Pacific Ocean, only 100 yards from the condo. Just follow the sound of the surf…

This is a luxurious residence in every respect. The furnishings and décor are tasteful and of high quality. The Venetian-stucco walls, teak moldings and doors, cast stone floors, and ceilings planked in tropical hardwoods combine to fashion a wonderfully warm and welcoming vacation home.

Our building, La Esquina, is an intimate, 10-unit complex, showcasing Moroccan architecture, Mediterranean stucco, and columns, arches, tile, stonework, and carved teak beams throughout. The gardens are professionally landscaped and maintained and are alive with tropical flowers, plants, and trees.

La Esquina caters to guests who want to spend a relaxing vacation without having to deal with being amongst the 'party' although that is only a mile down the road if you want more 'action'

La Esquina #7 has a kitchen that is a chef's delight. It features granite countertops, hardwood cabinets with pebble-glass doors, modern stainless-steel appliances, a 3-stage water filter, a garbage disposal, a very full complement of countertop electric appliances, and complete sets of matching kitchenware, cutlery, serving ware, glassware, silverware, and dining ware.

The pool is just steps from the private, shaded porch.

The rooftop patio provides 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean and the green hills of Costa Rica. It's the perfect place for sunbathing, napping, watching sunsets, and star-gazing. And yes, you can actually see the legendary Southern Cross constellation from the rooftop!

The entire complex, including the large parking area, is walled, gated, and guarded 24/7.

La Esquina 7 has its own wireless, high-speed Internet. No shared bandwidth.

The washer and dryer in the condo are for the sole use of the guests of La Esquina 7.

You'll find nothing but fresh, cool air, thanks to the central a/c and eight ceiling fans. La Esquina 7 has been strictly non-smoking from day one, so the air is clean and pure.

The condo is located only one mile from the renowned shopping and restaurants of Tamarindo, a town that is described by.residents as having the widest selection of restaurants in Costa Rica, other than in the capital itself.

We look forward to having you as our guests at La Esquina #7 in beautiful Playa Langosta!

An idyllic home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended! My family of twenty-somethings and I enjoyed an unforgettable few days in stunning Casa Papaya! Well-equipped, extremely convenient, close to amenities, close to the beach, and affords every comfort one could imagine, including a beautiful covered patio opening onto the complex pool and private, sheltered barbecue area leading off the kitchen area. Beautifully furnished and decorated! A wonderful holiday! Undiluted PURA VIDA!

Thanks to the staff of Blue Water Properties, and to the friendly staff and guards at the complex.

Over the top Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

What an idyllic, comforting place to enjoy Pura Vida in Tamarindo. This was our second visit and second stay in this condo. Bill and Beth were graciously helpful and provided us with all of the information we needed to have a terrific stay. The condo was immaculate, the beds extremely comfortable. I slept well every night. The kitchen is quite functional and lacking no utensil. The pool was heavenly and we enjoyed early morning and late night swims. The condo is also within easy walking distance of Tamarindo and just steps from the majestic ocean. The decor is tastefully done and adds warmth and comfort. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the rooftop and also appreciated the daily warm greetings of the various guards. You will not be disappointed with this magical place. PURA VIDA!

Owner's Response: Beth and I were very happy to hear that you enjoyed everything about your visit, especially watching the sunsets from the rooftop patio. Watching the sunsets from up there has been a nightly tradition for us, ever since we bought Casa Papaya new in 2005. In fact, a few years ago we had a big party up there to celebrate our 36th anniversary, and the sunset was one of the best we've ever seen anywhere. We're delighted you returned for a second visit Kimberly, and we hope you'll come back again and again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed by our stay at Casa Papaya. Bill and Beth were extremely quick to reply to emails about reservations, date changes, questions, logistics, etc. The house was well stocked with towels, linens, and any kitchen utensils or cookery you might need. The guards were friendly and called us cabs whenever we needed one. We opted to take cabs rather than walk downtown in the heat. The pool is great and very refreshing, and the house comfortably fit 6 of us. I would strongly recommend staying at Casa Papaya if you are looking for a place away from the craziness of downtown but still close enough to split cabs. While you do need to take a bit of a walk to most restaurants in the downtown area, the bistro across the street is wonderful and only a few second walk away!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Alyson. We didn't know that the guards would call cabs. We'll pass that along to our future guests. We're happy to hear that the place was roomy enough for all six of you. We've been there ourselves with a total of six in the condo, and it felt comfortable, although four people is ideal. Please come back and visit us--it was a pleasure having you as our guest.

An ideal home base for fun and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our stay at Casa Papaya. Beginning with the detailed information provided by our hosts, we were well equipped to arrive with our two young children for March break. Bill & Beth shared their knowledge of the area by providing tips, directions and suggestions to accommodate any kind of visitor in a welcome email he sent me immediately after submitting our deposit. That was completely unexpected and something I referred to often throughout the trip.

We'd travelled to Playa Langosta before and our decision to return with our 4 year old kids is testament enough for the area. We felt safe and welcome in the area and although reports were that it had become "built up" since our last visit it only made this beach-side locale better. Grocery stores and any kind of dining are all within a short walk away. We'd expected to rent a car but didn't bother because we could easily get to Tamarindo on foot along the beach or in a cab and decided to lay low for our stay.

Guests in a neighbouring villa did the "adventure tour" version of Costa Rica and returned every evening and shared tales of their day over cocktails at the shared pool.

The villa is exactly as they'd described. We enjoyed the large pool right outside the back door and travelled across the road to a selection of beaches whether you decided to turn left or right.

With wifi, a bbq and plenty of linens, laundry and other creature comforts our family felt right at home.

Upon our arrival we had a few questions and Bill was just an email away to navigate our issues (I'd forgotten to write down the door code!).

This rental was one of the most hassle-free travel experiences we have ever had and would definitely refer people to book with Bill & Beth.

Our children especially enjoyed naming the two wild iguanas we spotted on the property Franklin & Johnny and watched them climb the trees in the courtyard with amazement. After the first day they were on a first-name basis with the security guard and were proud to offer an Hola! several times a day. It was a fantastic family holiday and thanks in a large part to our hosts who provided not only a beautiful, clean and comfortable rental but phenomenal customer service to boot.

Owner's Response: Thank you for all the kind words, Stephanie. We're glad Casa Papaya lived up to your expectations and that the descriptions we provided matched the reality. The iguanas in the banyan tree are always a big hit with guests, and children especially enjoy them. It's interesting to learn that almost everyone gives the iguanas names and that all the names are different. We were happy to hear that "Franklin" and "Johnny" helped keep the children entertained. We're glad that you were able to get around the area without having to rent a car. Many of our guests have reported the same thing, i.e., that having a car is a luxury but not a necessity. We hope you'll come back soon, Stephanie. Thanks again for being our guests at Casa Papaya.

Great Condo! Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy our stay at Casa Papaya! It was beautiful and exactly as described. Access to the beach was easy and the community was quiet and peaceful. The walk to Tamarindo was only 15 minutes away. We were able to enjoy the loud night life of Tamarindo, and then get away to a quiet community, which is exactly what we wanted. We were happy we decided to stay here. The pool was amazing, and we had the opportunity to see iguanas and monkeys up close! Bill and Beth (owners) were extremely helpful and we have no complaints. We will definitely try to stay here again if we travel to this area again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the kind words. We're glad everything went as you expected and deserved. During the last year, the howler monkeys have returned in large numbers to our area, and we're happy that you got to see them "up close and personal." Pura vida!

Best Vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to tamarindo and I'm definitely going back. The condo was perfectly located, just a couple of blocks out of town, but just far enough that when you went back to the house it was peaceful and away for it all. This it truly a great get away! The house has everything your could ask for, great accommodations, wonderful pool and steps from the beach and town. The private entrance with secure parking 24/7 was great! I really feel in love with Tamarindo and will definitely will be renting that unit again. The owners were amazing at providing great information about the unit and the amenities around town and had a very quick response time! Thanks again for sharing your condo with the world, we will definitely be returning!
