  • Tamarindo is wonderful

    "My wife and I spent two wonderful weeks here in January 2015 and couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to stay. At the south end of Tamarindo Beach across from Langosta Beach Club, it was the perfect spot to be close to everything. We had full access to LBC and were treated like royalty. We were an easy walk along the beach to Tamarindo. The staff were great - Juan took us to the main grocery store twice and waited while we shopped. The unit that we had at Ibis was perfect - both bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, the kitchen and laundry facility had everything you could ask for, and the living room and deck were comfortably furnished. The remote for the TV in the living room never did work but what little we watched, we could watched in the master bedroom. Stefano was the other person at the front desk and both he and Juan were friendly and informative. Definitely a repeat vacation"

  • 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!"

  • Awesome Vacation Home in Tropical Beach Paradise

    "First time to Costa Rica and was not sure what to expect. The house is great. Clean and well kept with modern amenities and set up. The family felt comfortable eating at the house or walking to one of the many near by restaurants. We rented a car but only used it to explore far off beaches because it's a short walk to the local beach. Beach was awesome with plenty to do. Surf, swim, explore or layout. All close to the house. After long days at the beach we were able to go back to the house and enjoy the pool, outdoor grill and just a relaxing environment. The area is great if you want to go for a walk or jog. Plenty of forest areas to see parrots and monkeys. The management company was also very helpful. Checking on us to make sure everything was okay. Will plan to go back and stay at the house again."

  • The house was amazing

    "We loved the house it was vert nicely decorated and felt vert safe as it is gated and there is gaurds walking around checking things out. Not intrusive either. The iguana in the trees around the house and pool were very entertaining. The house was not on the beach but a very short walk down to the beach and the beach club was wonderful."
