Why Hans Millefanti chose Guanacaste

Tamarindo is a great town with a beautiful beach. Great for surfing and swimming. Tamarindo has all the services one would want--shopping, great restaurants, banking and nightlife. There are so many great outdoor activities: Canopy tours, catamaran tours, ATV, horse back riding, surfing, scuba diving, volcano day trips, white water rafting to name a few!

What makes this condo unique

"CASA COLADA" it is located a couple of minutes from the beach and down-town but far away just enough to avoid the little noise from bars and restaurants. It is the only condo complex in town at this price range, featuring 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms built on 2 levels and 90M2 of total space.

Perfect holiday in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Colada is fantastic spot, located just a 5 minute walk from the the beach. No need for a car as you can walk to everything, which is fantastic.

My husband and I absolutely loved that this was a ground floor unit. So nice to be able to be steps from the pool and the outside dining area. It made is so much easier to grab another frosty drink!! Glad we didn't have to walk up a flight or two every time we needed something.

This was particularly nice when you have groceries too. So great to be able to go to the store (5 min away) and get fresh fruit, veggies, and anything we needed to make breakfasts, lunches and pool snacks.

We preferred to eat dinner out. Dinners can get expensive if you are eating right on the beach.

Our suggestion is to go to one of the few "sodas" for authentic, delicious food that is much cheaper. Our favourite was next to Surf Shack Burgers. Speaking of Surf Shack burgers - you have to try the chocolate, peanut butter, bacon milkshake. Amazing!

Back to Casa Colada!...The living space is cute and cosy and has everything you need (tv and wifi). So awesome to have the wifi extend to the pool area too!! Bedrooms were comfy and having 2.5 bathrooms was great! We loved the 24hour security and the Property Manager was a huge help for everything we needed.

Loved that they had chairs, beach mats and umbrellas too! It was great to be able to take these to the beach. You don't usually get that perk with most rentals, so this was an unexpected wonderful treat!

We absolutely loved our 10 day stay here and will return again next year for sure!!

Great Place By The Beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Casa Colada.

Our family was able to take advantage of all the activities close to the beach as well doing a little touring in the area. The accomodations were well priced for the area. The location was just a few minutes from the beach, and it was in a secure development with 24 hour securiy. We were travelling with children, and we always felt safe.

There were two pools in the complex where we could cool down after a fun day in Costa Rica.

The property was clean and the property management was very responsive to our needs.

I would highly recommend Casa Colada.

Spacious, affordable and great locatoin

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I stayed in this condo for a week in January 2016. The unit was very comfortable, clean and just a short walk to downtown Tamarindo. It was also quite a good price. The unit is pretty exactly as it looks in the pictures, with 2 bedrooms on the upper level, each with their own bathroom which is a nice thing to have to 2 ladies! The location is excellent, being a short walk to the beach and downtown. Its also very close to the Farmers Market that happens on Saturday mornings by the beach.

There were a couple of times when we had no water, but it didn’t cause too much problems and didn’t happen in the evening when we spent most of the time at the condo.

One problem I experienced was not getting confirmation of my payment from the manager. Three days before we were to be leaving I hadn’t received confirmation of my payment so I tried contacting the manager by email. By the next day I had received no response and I started to get worried. I tried phoning him using the phone number in the listing, but just got a generic voice mail so there was no way knowing it was actually his voice mail. After that I really started to get worried so I contacted VRBO. They were very good and after speaking with a call centre agent, I was transferred to security who took all my information and assured me they would do every thing they could to contact the manager or owner. VRBO was very good and took my concerns very seriously. After all of that I remembered that the manager had realtor phone number in his email so I tried phoning that number and finally was able to reach him. He indicated that his computer but he assured me that he would provide confirmation and would meet us at the condo. In the end he did meet us there and provided confirmation of my payment.

Once we arrived, the manager was helpful with sharing information about the area and responded quickly to inquiries we had.

The only other issue with this rental is the fact that we had to wire the money. It was a pain to go to the bank twice, to pay the deposit and the rest of the payment. This payment method also means lots of fees, both at the bank and as part of the payment. As well, you have to wait a long time to get confirmation of your payment.

Overall, I would recommend this rental if you are looking for a spacious, affordable place which has a good location. It isn’t fancy but but it was everything we needed

My stay

  • 4 of 5

I rented this apartment for 5 days, staying with my son. I found the apartment very clean, the 2 TV in working order and what is somewhat unusual lots of English channels. Hans the rental manager was most accommodation, I found him honest and willing to assist if needed.

The site is safe with a 24 hour security guard at the front of the complex.

The desposit was promptly refund upon inspection of the apartment.

Casa Colada Review

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a cozy and comfortable rental property in beautiful, sunny Costa Rica, look no further…Casa Colada is it! I enjoyed my stay earlier this year and I would definitely go back.

The condo is a 5-minute walk to the beach and close to the heart of Tamarindo. It is so nice to be able to walk everywhere. The condo is very safe since it is located in a gated community with 24-hour security. The town of Tamarindo is very safe too. The unit is quite spacious and has everything you could possibly need. With 2 bedrooms , each with its own bathroom, it is perfect for 4 people. It has A/C and there is a nice cross-breeze on the main floor in the mornings and evenings. Complete with a stove, fridge, washer and dryer, it truly feels like a home away from home!

Tamarindo has a beautiful beach with amazing sunsets. Be sure to check out happy hour at 4pm at most of the beach bars and restaurants. You can also take or taxi or rent a car to see many surrounding beaches. There are also lots of excellent restaurant options in Tamarindo ranging from casual to fine dining. If you love coffee, there are some wonderful coffee shops which showcase one of Costa Rica’s treasures! The main strip also has great shops should you require some retail therapy or if you are looking for gifts. Everything is walking distance and the town has anything you could possibly need.

Enjoy your visit and as the locals say: Pura Vida!
