  • A week in paradise - wish we were still there!!

    "What an amazing experience we had at Casa Paquita. First of all the house...It could not have been more perfect for the 4 families that stayed there. The kids loved the bunk room and the parents appreciated the well built (thick!) walls that kept their early mornings quiet. My husband and I stayed in the master suite which has a balcony and beautiful views of the pacific. We loved the beautiful woodwork and exquisite handpainted tiles throughout and the house had plenty of room for all of us. And the pool! The pool was perfect!!! An infinity pool overlooking the pacific was the perfect place to sit drinking our morning coffee, playing in all day and then watching the magnificent sunsets. Endless hours of entertainment for the kids (and adults) and Christian, the groundskeeper, kept it looking beautiful every day!! Paola, the property manager extraordinaire, was so instrumental in making sure our stay was perfect. She and I emailed back and forth many times before we arrived as she assisted us with the planning of out excursions, securing a car rental and making dinner reservations. I cant imagine trying to book this trip without her! When I suggested an activity, she provided us with the very best there was to offer (Pura Adentura for ziplining, Anteres for a sunset boat tour, Sabrina for surfing and Action Advenures for kayaking were a few of her perfect suggestions!) A BIG thank you to Paola, you made our trip a memory!! And then there was Naomi - wonderful, sweet, loving Naomi!! She was our cook and housekeeper but so much more. Besides being an excellent cook (her empanades, tortillas steak, fish, plantains..!!!! The list goes on an on..) she felt like a part of the family. We all fell in love with her for her kindness and caring ways. Thank you to Rich, Paola and Naomi for a wonderful vacation - when we return to CR, we will return to Casa Paquita - absolutely perfect!!"

  • Will return

    "The house is as advertised. Right on the beach. Clean, user friendly, lots of modern conveniences. We LOVED the howler monkey family that live on the property. Being able to walk the beach to town, restaurants, shops if we wanted and not having to walk the street was fabulous, but walking the street wasn't bad either, just not as beautiful and quiet. The 1 walk each way, every morning was a fantastic way to start your day. The weather was great, the water extremely warm and everyone very friendly and helpful. We wanted to see the sunset off the ocean and not the "bay" so walked to the far west side either at low tide or over the top of the hill. Real easy and way worth the walk. Fun condos, hotels and house on this side. What probably was the best was the overall best location of this house. Never crowded, wonderful to learn to surf and only a 40 minute ride from the airport. I would caution any one coming at Christmas. The crowds were so interesting to mingle with because every nationality was represented but the outdoor disco music that played between Christmas and New Years was some times difficult to handle when it went from 9 AM to 2 AM LOUD, like it was right next door but really was in town. Water carries sound :( In the beginning we thought the howler monkeys were loud but..... It didn't hamper our stay but would have liked it better at night to hear the waves and not the banging of the music. We will go back and will try to stay in this house again. You can be right on the beach (rarity), take a 30 second water taxi ride over to playa grande to see the turtles, 15 minutes to Ziplining with Monkey Jungle, see sunsets without leaving your area, go out to what ever kind of food you can imagine within a 10 minute walk and even walk to the Automarket grocery, if you don't mind a little further walk, or 5 minutes to the little market/store. We were able to drink the water 1/2 way through our stay without issues, we cooked most days and nights and had a great time. Places great to eat Shrimp Hole by 2001 grocery El Blula- Italian , great Pizza Falafal - great greek salad Wicked Jack area where they rent surf boards Nugi's for happy hour We NEVER got in a car or taxi after we were dropped off day one, except to Zipline"

  • 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!"

  • relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting with a perfect place to stay with family and friends

    "This is a wonderful property with all the amenities of home. Peaceful and relaxing. We traveled with our "kids" ages 22-24 and they were beyond thrilled after a day of surfing and fun in the sun, we could cook meals and wait on them while they enjoyed a swim in the beautiful pool. There is even an adorable iguana that will watch on as you enjoy the early evening swim. The town of Tamarindo is very close enough to walk or catch a $5 dollar cab ride. The guards at the gate are so helpful and will call cabs for you ( they do not all speak English, but with a little high school Spanish and with their kindness the cabs always arrived). The property is also walking distance to the Langosta beach Club.....indulge in a day there. I really can't say enough about our stay. The property worked perfect for us. Scott and Marybeth are wonderful hosts and make arrival and departure a breeze. We would definitely stay again. In fact, we didn't want to leave. Pure Vida."
