About shawn bard

I live in Charleston, SC. I graduated from the College of Charleston, love fixing up houses, racing cars and going to Costa Rica

shawn bard purchased this villa in 2002

Why shawn bard chose Tango Mar

we wanted to buy something fun. a change from the sort of Real estate we are involved with in Charleston.

What makes this villa unique

relaxing by the pool, swiming in the ocean, playing basketball at the house, playing golf on the tango mar course, horseback riding to montezuma having whole fish on the beach and about 3 margaritas and horseback riding back home, walking on the beach, reading by the pool, the morning coffee on the porch (any of the 4 awesome porches we have on the property) napping, partying

Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Rented all three units for 2 weeks. In its day this place was beautiful upkeep needed however very functional and indeed rustic. This we knew going in so no surprises there. The layout of the buildings is excellent and close to tango mar (very expensive resort) and best just a short walk down to the beach. This place cleaned up and repaired could be a real beauty as it apparently was at one time. The beds are very hard and need new mattresses. The upstairs unit in the main house is the nicest and the best bed of the complex. Love the layout and the feel of the jungle and open kitchens. Very nice rustic compound. Road extremely rough as are many in the Nicoya peninsula.

Beautiful Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

This was a vacation with nine recently retired family members. Although it was quite a bit of travel from San Jose by shuttles and ferry, we were very happy when we finally made it to the property. Sonja, our hostess met us at 11 PM to help us settle in, she was fantastic throughout the week, checking in on us daily as well as arranging tours and assisting us with anything we needed. The cottages were rustic but comfortable, outdoor kitchens and decks provided the opportunity to enjoy the climate and nature. The swimming pool was beautiful and we spent time there every day. All kitchens were stocked upon arrival with coffee, juice, beer, wine, water, milk and fresh fruit. Our first morning we walked down to Tangor Mar resort for breakfast. The proximity of this property to the resort is a bonus, you can enjoy their beach, bar and restaurant for lunch and dinner as well.. Food and service there was delicious. The beach is fabulous, great for swimming and walking. It is a bit of hillside walk with steps to the beach, but you can enjoy the monkeys along the way! The fishing is fabulous, you must have Sonja book a trip with Octavio and Jose. We caught rooster fish, large mahi-mahi and many red snapper. Octavio arranged for the snapper to be cooked for us at a local restaurant, H&B, arranged our transportation there and joined us for dinner to share local lore. The snapper was prepared perfectly and we were able to grill the rest of our catch at the property which has an outdoor grill and picnic table. Octavio and Jose also took us on the day trip to Isla Tortuga which included snorkeling, beach combing and a gourmet lunch prepared by our Captain. We also dined at Cristina’s where we were able to request a local lobster dinner which was fabulous.

Be sure to use Costa Rica Shuttles from the airport, drivers were fantastic and very accommodating. Sonja arranged for us to rent a car locally to get to grocery and local areas,

This property provides a true Costa Rica experience and is Paradise Found.

We went December 26, 2017 through January 2, 2018. Weather was perfect.Hate to leave

  • 5 of 5

I took my family for a graduation trip for my 3 kids that graduated from college. We were worried that when we arrived it wouldn’t look anything like the pictures. When we arrived Sonja was waiting for us and showed us around. It looked exactly like the pictures. She had left a fresh fruit basket with a bottle of wine, a bottle of water and soda along with a few beers at each house. I would recommend this place to anyone. The pool and slide were awesome! Sonja and Morrison the grounds keeper came every day to check to see if we needed anything and to clean the grounds. We saw white faced monkey’s, Howler Monkey’s, and many variety of birds including parrots that would fly by every day. There was a waterfall about 5 minutes away and the hike was easy. The beach was beautiful as well. We will be going back.

This is paradice found

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible vacation. The house was perfect for our family, lots of room and had everything we needed. If the kids weren't playing in the pool they were in the water at the beach. It was nice having the resort so close with access to the restaurants although we BBQ fish at the house most nights. Monkeys in the trees, iguanas and lizards all over the place, my son caught a turtle and we even saw a jaguarundi. Sonja checked in every day and helped with anything we needed. The grounds keeper was there every morning to skim the pool and clean the patios. With everything that you get with this rental its a great bargain. We will be coming back. Thank you. Tom

This was great for our family! We had three seperate families with kids that were young. The pool was great and it is just a short walk to the beach. Short hike to the waterfall and saw monkeys on multiple occasians on the property. The host, Sonja, was amazing. She was very informative and helped us with everything beforehand and once we got there. Would definitely stay again! I would recommend a rental car which Sonja can help with. We didn't have one when we went 4 years ago but did this time and it makes a huge difference being able to get around.

Family Compund

  • 5 of 5

Great unique compound for a family retreat with some room to spread out. Three structures and a pool right up from the beach. A little on the rustic side but no complaints for the value. Owner and local manager were a pleasure to work with.
