About David Moon

Hola! My family and I love getting away to the beaches and ocean for family time. We enjoy swimming, beach days, surfing, picnics and cooking.

David Moon purchased this townhome in 2012

Why David Moon chose Tamarindo

We fell in love with Tamarindo because of the mellow surfing and safe beaches. We are located near a "blue zone" with easy access to fresh organic fruits and vegetables. We are centrally located to easy access to other beaches and surf breaks.

What makes this townhome unique

We chose our home because we have access to all that we need within walking distance and still keeping the small town vibe. There are many amenities within walking distance, gym (2 min), daycare (2 min), bank (4 min), car rental (4 min), supermarket (6 min), surf shops (7 min), restaurants (2 min), pharmacy (8 min), shopping (8 min), beach (10 min). For surfers, it is a 13 minute walk to the rivermouth. The rivermouth works on all tides and very consistent.

Great condo in Tamarindo!

  • 4 of 5

We were 3 adults that stayed for 4 weeks in January 2018. On arrival it was clean and well stocked. There was plenty of bedding, bath towels and beach towels. It had beach accessories that we appreciated very much after talking with other travellers who didn't have any of these things (chairs, water thermos, cooler, beach mats)! Rooms were spacious and each had its own bathroom (luxury when travelling!). The pool area was clean and well maintained. It was nice to have an outdoor shower to rinse the sand off before we came inside. The location was a convenient 10-15 min walk to the centre of town, but just far enough away from the noise that can happen from the bars and restaurants. Be prepared to have sleep sometimes interrupted by howler monkeys in the back yard!!!

The only downsides we found was that the couch only seats 2 adults (we were 3) and the internet was VERY unreliable. It was out more than it was working and made it very difficult to plan excursions and look things up online. If you NEED to be in touch with work or home, you may need alternative WIFI. Luckily, we had friends staying nearby, so we used theirs quite often. We spoke with the property management people to see if there is something that can be done and they said it was because of the wind in CR :-/ Don't think this is the owners fault, just a product of internet issues in CR!

Overall, it was a great place to stay. Highly recommend it (reluctantly, as I was hoping to keep this gem in my back pocket!!!!)

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you and your family had a great time. We put great attention to our home and hope that others can enjoy it as well. We appreciate your input. We are considering purchasing another chair to add to our living room area. Our sofa is a full size sofa bed and another chair could make it more cozy. The internet consistency has always been an issue in our region. The region is prone to rolling black outs and interrupted internet service. Costa Rica is still a developing country and claims a 100% renewable energy consumption. In light of this, we have recently increased our internet bandwidth speed and upgraded our WIFI coverage with signal boosters. Thanks again for your stay and please consider us again in the future! Sincerely, David
