  • Beautiful, sunny condo, close to beaches

    "We stayed here for 15 days in the second half of December. First, the condo was nearly perfect, very clean and modern. The kitchen was very well equipped with most of the basic things you would expect. One bonus: a knife sharpener! (I hate the beating knives usually take in rental places and they are usually dangerously dull to work with.) There was a dining area with two tables (?), neither of which we ever used. Whenever we did eat in, we always ate on the balcony overlooking the pool. The bedroom was spacious, and the Jacuzzi in the corner was really great. I didn’t notice in the listing that there were two bathrooms, but we were glad to have the extra one. There is a huge walk-in closet with tons of towels (beach, pool, regular bath and hand towels, and some very plush bath towels). The living room was fairly small but cozy. It’s not like we go on vacation to sit inside and watch TV. There is a medium-sized flat-screen TV, but the one time I did try to watch it the reception on most of the channels was fairly poor. Wi-fi reception was excellent! Security was good, with very friendly guards at the main gate. One drawback: the safe in the room did not work correctly and could only be accessed with a key, not a code. The pool is excellent and looks better than the pictures in the listing. There is a good gas grill which we used a couple of times (although, if you’re tall like me, watch your head so you don’t bang it on the concrete vent above it). There is a small workout room on the top level, and yes, you can see the ocean from there, but only if you get on one of the treadmills or other machines and are tall enough to see through the tiny windows. Seem a waste of what could be a great view. The neighborhood has some great restaurants within a block or two. Sabo has great wood-fired pizza and the whole staff is Italian. Walter’s is an amazing Italian deli right next to the condo. (They have a fresh soft cheese filled buratta that you have to order a day in advance. Get it!) There’s also a tapas place, Moko’s(?), that has excellent food. The walk to Tamarindo on the main road takes about 15 minutes, but can be very dusty and windy when it’s not the rainy season. Also, if you can arrange your own transport from the airport in Liberia, do so. The service the condo uses arranged a private shuttle for $80. There are $20 shuttles from the airport to and from Tamarindo, and you can get a cab to the condo for $5."

  • Great place and great price

    "Harry's was very clean and had everything that it said and that we needed. Harry is very friendly and helpful on where to go and what to do. His free bikes are awesome to get around and we really enjoyed the free surfboards that r in better shape than all the rental shops in the town. The pool is perfect for relaxing with a drink after a long day on the beach. I highly recommend staying at Harry's and I will defiantly be staying there again."

  • Incredible retreat in perfect surroundings.

    "If you are looking to Costa Rica, look no further! This Villa is perfection. Spanish architecture with old world flair, gorgeous and well appointed immaculate suites which exude warmth, class and charm. We loved the rocking chairs at sunset, the enormous round table for dinner, walks on the beach, frosty drinks by the pool...... and gazing out to the surf and wild horses from the infinity pool. Mary who is the Property Manager is simply incredible, she organized every pick up from the airport to all of our excursions. From spa day's at Spa de Eros, to snorkeling and sunset sails, dinner reservations at Daveena's (a must do) to day trips. She arranged for Chef Pascal & Camille to cook us incredible meals, morning and night. We've stayed in some of the best resorts and hotels in the world and her attention to detail was beyond the best of the best. This is a first class vacation in a phenomenal setting and I can not thank the owners enough for making our experience one that we shall never forget. It was beyond perfection Xxx"
