  • Fantastic stay

    "Kenny/Anick, The condo greatly met and exceeded our expectations! Your taste in home furnishings is impeccable! Beautiful pool and lush gardens, surrounded us! Great location for the beach, cheap and fine dining. Away from the busy Tamarindo night life! Fantastic nightly parade of howler monkeys and their babies! The location, safety and just over all experience was perfect! Pre trip communication was spot on with all questions and concerns addressed immediately. Thank you in allowing the use of your beautiful home. We will book again next year! Only the best, Deby and Chris"

  • Manage expectations and you'll like it

    "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."

  • Fantastic accommodation. Location. Short walk to beach & restaurants.

    "Great spot for a family get away. Condo well equipped & spacious. The patio/balcony was a huge hit with the kids. We rented a golf cart to get around & were told that we could not use property charger. This should be addressed. Overall experience was great. We will most definetly return."

  • Perfect for a group!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: House was exactly as described online. It was very clean and everything is provided for your stay. House is much more beautiful in person then in the pictures. Booked transportation through Stay in Tamarindo, they were on time and very friendly. Management was very helpful before, during, and after the stay. Would definitely recommend staying here, it is a beautiful town!"
