About Vicky Sweetlove
My name is Vicky Sweetlove and I live in the UK just outside London. I have lived in the London area for about 30 years and have two children now grown up my daughter aged 24 and my son 27 years old. I originate from North Wales where my mother came from and my father from South Wales and adore the beautiful countryside, beaches and mountains of Wales. That is why I chose to buy a house in Tamarindo Costa Rica as it reminds me so much of North Wales only much warmer, it reminds me of how Wales used to be a more relaxed way of life. I am now following my passion in my life and teach courses all around the world. I did work at City University Business School in London for a Professor of IT when computers and emails were just coming in to their own and mobile phones were just starting out so the world has changed very much over the last 35 years.
Vicky Sweetlove purchased this House in 2015
Why Vicky Sweetlove chose Tamarindo
I found my dream home in Tamarindo after searching all around the world for 10 years for a place that was wamer than the UK in the winter and that I could feel at home in and safe. Casa Sunshine did this for me when I first came to this part of Costa Rica I knew immediately this was the place for me to live and be happy and decided to purchase the house last year. It ticked all the boxes for me with it being a detached house in a gated community with onsite manager and beautiful pool area with Jacuzzi and all the amenities that you need are all within a 5 minute walk including the beach and great restaurants.
What makes this House unique
The house has a lovely porch and verandah where you can relax at any time of the day but best of all there is a downstairs half bathroom as well as ensuites to the bedroom. Tamarindo offers so much whether you love the surf and sea or whether you want to sight see or enjoy a boat ride to another beach with the most beautiful shells I have ever seen on Playa Grande. You can find fresh organic foods in the supermarkets and eat healthiy breakfasts and enjoy the wonderful fresh fish that is in abundance in the local restaurants. Tamarindo is one of the best places in the world that I have ever visited and I am glad I found it.

Everything was great.
Landscape was beautiful
Pool was super nice.
Can't say enough on how nice the property was designed.
Although definite walking distance I wish it was a bit closer -- with the heat we normally drove and parked.
Septic needs to be upgraded, felt weird disposing toilet paper in trash.
A little oasis in busy Tamarindo
Casa Sunshine in Pueblo Colonial was our last stop of a 2 month stay in CR and we thoroughly enjoyed our 19 day stay there. Once you step inside the gate there is a feeling of quiet enjoyment from a very busy town. Margaritha, our on-site host, greeted us and couldn't do more to make our stay such a pleasant experience. She was knowledgeable and very helpful in planning our schedule for touring the area and planning our shuttle to the airport. The unit was spacious which permitted us to have friends join us during our stay. The good sized pool was a welcome feature after a day at the beach, touring or just exploring around town. We prepared many of our own meals and found the kitchen well equipped. The communal gas grills were in excellent condition and we used them many times. All-in-all a wonderful visit....thanks for sharing your house with us Vicky!
I am so pleased you enjoyed your visit and Margaritha making you feel welcome also enhancing your stay. I look forward to welcoming you again on your next visit to Costa Rica
Beautifully appointed. Margaritha who manages the property great to work with. Beautiful pool. Property as advertised. Would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for your lovely review and I look forward to your next visit
A Warm and Friendly Village
The neighbors were wonderfull!! They acquainted us with the area: where to eat, to shop, to tour, to bank, etc. The "village," as we call it, was so nicely laid out with plenty of trees for shade as well as privacy. Margaritha was so helpful and, of course, very knowledgable about the area.
Casa Sunshine is a very lovely place in a very warm place! We appreciated the air conditioning, as well as the FANS! Thank you! The facilities were certainly adequate, except for the counter tops. The stones made it hard to wipe clean and items tipped easily if not placed just right.
The accommodations themselves were great - loved the views, the balcony and porch. The stairs were difficult for Jean, who has had two knees replaced, and her cane was needed to go up and down. A railing would have been helpful for her.
Obviously, the sanitation system required adjustment but everyone had to deal with that.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay very much and were grateful for getting to know a little bit about Costa Rica/Pacific Side! Thank you!
Hi John I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Sunshine and hope you come back
Tamarindo Villa Oasis
This colonial style villa is made up up stand-alone casas with a shared pool, and beautifully landscaped commons. Very comfortable inside, with ground floor patio and upstairs balcony. In-suite laundry was a bonus. The villa is secure, and reserved parking is just outside the main gate.
About a 10-15 minute walk to the main drag(s) and beach, it was nice to be a bit off the beaten track in busy Tamarindo. Great restaurants even closer - Dragonfly, Barefoot, and Negra Surf Shop stood out.
Lots of beaches to explore nearby by car - Flamingo, Placeda and Langosta were all great, although we never met a bad beach of the dozen-plus we visited!
So happy you had a wonderful time, it truly is a beautiful place with amazing beaches.
Beautiful property; great location
We loved our stay! Close to town, and to the general Tamarindo area; we rented a car so were able to take day trips. We also spent time on the property, by the pool. The villa is well-maintained and beautiful. Highly recommend it.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you revisit
There are yoga and pilates classes within a 5 minute walk as well as a gym with classes and surfing. A local artist giving art lessons on a daily basis and an abundance of shops to suit everyone. The local beach is within a 5 minute walk. Plenty of local fish restaurants and good choice to suit eveyones tastes including hamburgers.
Conchal beach is a 20 minute drive away as is Flamingo beach resort and the Tamarindo Labarynth which is the only double labarynth in the world.
