    "First the good: the view is spectacular, and no photos do it any justice. The view, the pool, the location close to so many great beaches all make this a great place to day trip and see the Guanacaste area, provided you have a car. 4WD recommended, but not essential. The pool was great! My 6 year old daughter went from tentative swimmer to a fish in 6 days, and her swimming instructors couldn't believe it. Nice views, comfy beds (with a caveat below), and a tasteful decor. For 3 of us, it was the right size. Now the bad: first of all, the owner disappeared about two weeks before our arrival. I wrote several times asking for directions, etc. and no reply. Only when I was already in Costa Rica and filled out the form for prospective renters did I get a reply, the night before our arrival. Personally I don't like to travel this way. Maybe I've a lot to learn about "Pura Vida." As I said, the place has a great view, but is poorly equipped for someone with experience staying in VRBO properties. With so many photos of the kitchen and guests dining on the patio, I expected more. The kitchen is stocked as if a bachelor lived there - more George Foreman grills than wine glasses, and that's no exaggeration. There is basically one set of dishes, matching coffee mugs, some silverware and not much else. As someone who likes to cook I was extremely disappointed with so barren a kitchen. No mixing bowls, no potato peeler, no measuring cups, nothing even the most basic of kitchens would have to make a decent scratch meal. No spices, not even salt and pepper. I'd have gladly traded the cute welcome flashlights for a few spices and essential kitchen tools. Carlos was mostly helpful, but it always seemed like asking him for something was a little inconvenient for him. We did not realize that once we went through the stocked two rolls of toilet paper we'd have to buy our own. The Wifi was on and off; this must have impacted Carlos as well, as this was the one problem we had that carried a certain sense of urgency. That said, the TV was nice, and I encouraged our girl to watch her favorite cartoons in Spanish. No bedspreads on the bed. Just a topsheet. Hope that suits you cause that's all you get. And the poolside grill? Just a piece of aluminum grating. Seriously, another $300 on some more essentials and this place would rock; maybe the current renovation will help. I'm ranking at 3.5 stars; round it up to 4 only for the view and the pool."

  • Best Vacation We Have Ever Been On!

    "It's been nearly a month since we went for a week long vacation in Costa Rica. I can't begin to verbalize how incredible our experience was. My family and I have spent the last month talking about how much we loved and miss this condo. The condo is located just outside of Tamarindo, but makes for a relaxing walking down the road/beach or a quick $5.00 taxi ride into town. The place itself was luxuriously immaculate. From the second we walked in, we were in paradise. The balconies presented the most beautiful view we have ever witnessed and an endless sea to sip on a glass of wine while enjoying. We woke up a couple of the mornings to giant iguanas right outside our patios. Incredible! The condo provided a large living space to enjoy ourselves. We enjoyed tons of outdoor activities, locally & at Rincon De La Vieja. We got to enjoy the ziplining, horseback riding, white water rafting, catamaran sunset cruise, the estuary tour and tons of other amazing things! We have NOTHING but amazing things to say about this place. You will NOT regret renting it! Thank you Syd for providing us with a memory that will last a lifetime. We can not wait to come back to Costa Rica. And when we do, it will be right here in this condo!"

  • Five Star Paradise

    "This is a wonderful property in a perfect location. Above all the staff are wonderful and very helpful from the time you arrive until your departure. The rooms are beautiful and the entire place is well taken care of. Located across from the Beach Club, the beach is pristine with a beautiful pool and food/ and drink to help you enjoy each day. We walked everywhere, either to the stores, restaurants or bars and just fell in love with Tamarindo! I highly recommend you give this place a try and discover for yourselves how wonderful you'll feel after a vacation here!"

  • Gorgeous view, Great location, All the amenities to keep you cool, comfortable and relaxed.

    "What a gorgeous view to wake up to every morning or watch the sunset at night! This condo has everything you need to make you feel right at home. A porch with grill, living room, kitchen, two gorgeous bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a large tub and multiple showers mean you have all the space you need to enjoy your stay. It offers a great location close to many great beaches and within an hour or so of the lush green mountains. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and it was a blast. We went up to the cloud forest of Monteverde, snorkeled at Ocotal, spread out on the white sand beach of Conchal and rode horses and swam in waterfalls of Guachepelin. Staff are friendly and very helpful at the gate and on the property. Pool and tennis courts are first class. Supermarkets are close by and the kitchen is full appointed. We were not left wanting for anything. Our neighbors were super friendly and helpful too. We can't wait to go back... Pura Vida!"
