  • This IS the place to stay!

    "We stayed a week March '16. It is hotter than the hubs of he-double-hockey-sticks, so be prepared! The property has security, very well manicured grounds, is small and quaint, off the beaten path, literally a few steps from the pool, and 1 minute walk through the locked gate to the ocean! The accommodations are great - private laundry rm - soap included, 2 single beds in one bedroom, a queen bed in the master with a master bath. Living room, dining and kitchen are spacious and have all that you need. 2nd bath off the living space that the teenagers used. Lots of towels! Kitchen is well stocked - dish soap included. There is a charcoal grill on the patio, but charcoal is more expensive than at home (Minnesota) and the fluid is a gel that is barely sufficient. The only thing I would improve on the property is the outside chairs as they have probably seen their better days, but were still functional for coffee in the a.m. and wine in the p.m. while listening to the ocean. You will see iguanas and geckos on property, as well as some birds. This property is off the beaten path, but still very close to town - 3 min drive. Be sure to hit the farmers market right down the road from the property on Saturday a.m. - pineapple is to die for! Beach walks are a must - go during low tide to check out the tide pools. If you have a car, go to the town of Guatil to check out the hand made pottery (the office can direct you) - 1st house on the left in town is Edwin - he is fantastic! He will give you a full tour and explanation of their pottery making process that has been handed down over generations. He took us to the backyard and there were iguanas in his mango tree as well as a Howler monkey! Awesome! Ask questions! Be sure to check out Tamarindo Beach, the boat tour in the Nat'l Park is worth it - monkeys eating from our hands and on our heads! This is a very popular area for surfing. The roads suck, period. Rent an SUV for sure. Don't eat at the Bocas restaurant - overpriced for what you get. Cooking in the villa saved us a ton of money, but groceries are not as cheap there as they are here. We went to 3 different grocery stores - all were comparable, but be prepared, they aren't like at home! We did have a couple maintenance issues in our villa - staff was prompt in repairing those items. CR is experiencing a major drought, we ran out of water, they bought 10,000 gallons, pump went out, hand repaired, up and running again. Would stay again!"

  • Great house located in a wonderful area

    "We absolutely loved the house and our stay in Tamarindo. The house is wonderful and is located in a quiet and secure neighborhood just a short walk from the beach and everything that Tamarindo has to offer. Loved the pool especially in the morning where we had coffee and watched the local wildlife. The use of the beach club was an excellent added feature and we used it everyday and the food is very good there as well. House has everything you would expect and the local management was very good to work with and handled check-in and check-out very smoothly. Linda is great to work with and I highly recommend this property. Thanks, Linda"

  • 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."

  • Wonderful vacation!

    "From the moment we contacted the owner regarding our vacation up until check out, we were impressed. The house was just as described and fit 9 of us comfortably (2 families = 4 adults and 5 children). The house was perfectly located in Hacienda Pinilla with access to the JW Marriott as well as the hacienda pinilla beach club. Cynthia was very accommodating and helped us with dinner reservations as well as setting up activities. Would highly recommend Pangas and Green Papaya to eat, both located in Tamarindo. The highlight of the trip was taking surf lessons with Rafa. Also, the housekeeper was a wonderful addition as she cooked authentic Costa Rican food and cleaned during our stay. We did pay to rent the golf cart, but found that we used our rental cars instead."
