Beautiful, private property on the beach. Lots of wildlife around. The house was very clean.
There was always someone nearby on site if we needed anything. We would definitely go back!
Small house right on the beach
Had a great time here, lots of fun watching the howlers and iguanas right in the back yard. Owners are wonderful and their staff takes great care of you.
Very old but cozy
Great location and cozy but serious upgrades needed..The water pressure was very bad especially with showers due to lack of temp regulation by removing the shower heads it helped.The grill must of been found in someones garbage being broken and rusted thru. The kitchen was old/outdated and very under stocked (very small cutting board,4 forks,6 spoons,4 tall glasses,no stainless steel cleaner pad but great blender and love the chickens and monkeys)..Considering the profits from renters the kitchen cabinets,counter tops sink, lighting and grill need replacing as soon as possible..For the price I would not stay there again unless the upgrades were made..
Unique and Private!
We really enjoyed our experience in Tamarindo. If you enjoy privacy, wild life and authenticity then this rental is for you! The house is located at the edge of the touristy area of the town, a couple blocks before continuous sidewalks end. We felt very safe at the house as there was always either a gardener or security guard on the property who were very friendly. You have private access to the beach which was also a great place to find shade. This end of the beach is significantly quieter and there is rarely anyone else around. The cons were the beds were not comfortanle, the shower was either too hot or too cold, and there were many ants, spiders and occasional geckos in the house. We understand critters are not irregular to find but it takes a bit to get used to. We did not get any bug bites so we just ignored them. The property is like an iguanana sanctuary. We were also lucky to see a family of howler monkeys on our last day. We had a unique and memorable experience staying at this rental!
We loved our stay and this place was perfect
The house is great, plenty of room, comfortable, clean, quiet and safe. The best part was all animal life we saw in the backyard- Monkeys, iguanas, squirrels, all kinds of birds, and geckos! The people running the place and maintaining it are awesome. We loved their little dog, who greeted us every day. They also own one of the best restaurants in town (gotta try the banana and coconut cream pies!) We highly recommend this place and had a fantastic time.
If you're only planning on staying in Tamarindo, you won't need a car. Their place Is located right on the beach, with a big grocery market near by and all the shops. Restaurants are just minutes away.
However, some amazing beaches and parks are worth the drive - definitely rent a SUV for traveling around Costa Rica!
Great location with easy beach access
I stayed here for a solo surfing trip and had a really relaxing stay. The house had way more room than I needed for one person, but it made for a nice getaway. I imagine it would be perfect for a couple or a small family.
The location is excellent for walking right out front to the beach to surf the river mouth or just enjoy the beach. I spent most of my time up at Playa Grande or down at Avellanas, and being at the edge of town made for a really easy pickup to head out of town.
The only downside is it could be a bit loud at night with all the wildlife around, but that comes with the territory of being right by the estuary, and I was still able to get plenty of sleep.
The owners and onsite security were helpful, helping me out when my key happened to break inside one of the locks.
Overall I'd recommend for the beach access and being a bit outside of town, while still within a very short walk to the restaurants. Thanks!
Due to privacy, we don't allow other guests to the house
