  • Great Christmas family getaway

    "Our family stayed December 2016. 7 adults--2 couples, 3 singles. The 4 bedrooms worked fine. The one that has no privacy and that you have to walk through to get to the bathroom is a little weird. It was also odd that that bathroom didn't have a ceiling (which means not completely private) but there was another bathroom so that was ok. The beach is great. You can wade out a long way and still touch so it felt very safe. We did not sit on the beach. There were ants that sometimes felt like they were biting my feet if I was still but it wasn't that big of a deal. Some of us had irritation from something in the water but was only stung for an hour or less and then went away. There is a shower in the backyard just inside the gate that was very convenient to wash off before going in the house or pool. Many people walked the beach (but it was not crowded at all) and everyone was friendly. There is a dramatic difference between high and low tide. You can't walk as far during high tide. There is an inlet or estuary each way that you can not cross when the water is high. The pool area is great. The cabana and row of bushes provide shade and privacy. The balcony is lovely and shaded all day long with a great view. Jorge, the house manager, lives on the first floor of the house and he took good care of us -- got our groceries, shuttled us to and from the airport, and drove us to and from the Beach House restaurant (he had an emergency at another place he manages so we waited a long time and we could have had better communication regarding that though). We went jet skiing and snorkeling with his son Joshua which was very fun. We rented boogie boards and kayaks from the place down the beach. It would have been nice to have had some beach "toys" available at the house. We walked to Perla's restaurant (10 minutes). I walked the beach to the Beach House one morning (27 minutes). I walked to the restaurant to the right down the beach (12 minutes) but we didn't eat there. There is a convenience store that is a 10 minute walk. The groceries and restaurants were more expensive than we anticipated. The 7 of us had lunch at the restaurant at the airport (no one ordered alcohol) and it cost $175! 6 of us ate at Perla's with 3 drinks and it was $100. We spent around $350 on groceries which did include alcohol. Overall, we were very satisfied. Casa Surfside was reasonably priced for all ALL that we got -- togetherness, beach, pool, and fabulous view."

  • Wonderful view of the ocean!

    "We enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was nice to have two bedrooms and two baths for our family of four. The condo's pool and shared spaces were very clean. When we had an issue with a key breaking, Craig was quick to get us a new one. About a twenty minute walk to Tamarindo beach, which was beautiful. Lots of wonderful nature to see right in the area. The sunset from the ocean was looked forward to every night."

  • Idyllic vacation house

    "This is such a wonderful place at a perfect location. The house has all the comforts: roof-fans everywhere including outside; air conditioning in every bedroom; washer and dryer; Wi-Fi; linens and pots, and even a storage place for the surfboards, etc. We were 6 adults and 2 kids and there was space for everyone. Beach, restaurants, and mini-market are all within a few yards from the house. The owner lives close by and he’s very acquainted with the area. He was extremely helpful with all of our needs."

  • Fantastic condo, great service

    "This condo was beautiful. We were here for 10 days in Dec 2016. It was perfect for us, 3 adults. The owner is very nice and helpful. He makes sure the management company replies to every question you have. The management company driver met us at the airport in Liberia and took us to the management office. ( 1 block from condo) where a rep joined us to open/show the condo to us. We did not have any problems but if we did we had many people to contact. The condo is clean and decorated with new furniture and beds. The condo has a great patio in the shade. Walk out to the beautiful pool area - swim up bar. Very well equipped condo. We recommend this condo fully - absolutely no problems with booking or staying here. Very close to all restaurants in Tamarindo, no need for a car at all. All the staff at the condo complex are friendly and greet you with a smile all the time. We always felt very secure, this is a gated complex with 24 hour guards on the security gates. . This is a great condo with great service."
