  • Loved the condo.

    "This condo was perfect for us! There were four of us, my husband and two grown kids (18 and 21). Although we did not spend much time in the condo, there was plenty of room and privacy. Having a washer/dryer is a dream, we could have packed way less than we did. The kitchen is wonderful, very clean, and while we did not cook we had coffee and breakfast items, which saved a little hassle and money. We booked a couple of trips through the hotel (zip lining and river cruise). Definitely take a look at the guest book, you will get lots of ideas where to go. Our favorites were Green Papaya, Dragonfly and Seasons. We took a trip to Playa Avellana and ate at Lola's -- great food there, and beautiful beach. Make sure you check hours and payment before going to some places -- Lola's was not open for dinner, Season's doesn't take credit cards, Green Papaya is closed on Mondays. As someone said the WIFI isn't too strong but it is available and you don't really want to be online too much. We saw lots of monkeys on the property and off, and parrots in the early morning (off the property). Neil (the owner) and Katia (from the property management company) were very helpful and responsive."

  • Perfect in every way!

    "Horizantes del mar was the perfect location for our family of seven to spend a week unwinding. Pura vida rentals provided the ultimate concierge service to accommodate every request we had: from arranging transportation, to surf lessons, atv tours, local meals prepared in the condo, and they even drove us to the grocery store. An added perk was they provided is a local cell phone to use so that we could contact them as needed or call local restaurants and taxis. The condo was in a perfect location. You walk out and turn left and have your own private estuary to swim in. It was truly unspoiled beauty. Each night, the sunsets from the rooftop were breathtaking. It was about a 15 minute walk along the beach into town or a $6 taxi ride. The condo itself was spacious enough for the 7 of us to spread out and have plenty of room. The rooftop patio truly sets this property apart. Aside from the amazing property, pura vida rentals was the best to work with. We spent a few days in the rain forest before coming to their property and they were willing to coordinate all of our transportation from the airport , to the rainforest, to the beach , and back to the airport. We had a family issue and needed a last minute airport trip from the rainforest and they accommodated that too. All the service providers that they connected us with were top notch and reasonably priced. We will definitely be back and working with bob Wilson and his team at pura vida rentals."

  • Beautiful House - Detailed review including the positives and negatives of the property

    "We spent the summer in this house and know it quite well! It's very safe here and despite prior comments it is in a fully enclosed gated neighborhood except for one path to the beach (i've walked it many times). It is also patrolled by security 24 hours. The house itself is really beautiful we stayed here with a 5 and 7 year old and it is well equipped for cooking and entertaining. There are 2 tvs one in the master bedroom, one in the living room. The living room has a DVD and Blu-Ray Combo. It also has a surround sound system that i never could get to work however i only spent 10 minutes trying. There is a stackable front load washer dryer system that worked well for us. The pool in the backyard is great as mentioned in a prior post it doesn't have full sun. Although it gets a good bit of sun throughout the day and with the heat here you don't really need direct sun. The house is also filled with some great books (i've read a lot of them). Also on the first floor is a 1/2 bathroom. There's a winding tile staircase to the second floor with the 2 bedrooms. Both of the bathrooms are showers (no tub) They are also partially outside so you must keep the door to the shower and also the door to the bedroom closed at all times. However, we loved the outdoor shower it's really nice to listen to the birds and the sounds of the tropics while you shower. We did not have a car while we were here and walked to town or the beach club everyday. You can walk along the beach by cutting through the back of the neighborhood or you can walk out the front and take a dirt road to town. We commonly walked out to the road and then cut through Capitan Suizo to the beach this is a little easier and gets you into town in about 15 minutes. The internet in the house is slow compared to the USA but pretty standard for Costa Rica. We are able to use Skype and stream media with one device at a time. The negatives are that the A/C doesn't work very well. There are 3 compressors in 3 zones. One for downstairs and 2 for the bedrooms upstairs. The downstairs A/C will work for about 3 or 4 hours set at 78 degrees and then it will freeze up. The kids bedroom only works for about 2 hours before freezing up and the master bedroom works for most of the night without freezing up as long as you remember to turn it off during the day. The other downfall is that the house is not sealed up well, so there are a few harmless creatures wandering in and out mostly geckos and ants."

  • Beautiful views, gorgeous condo..... amazing stay!

    "We just spent a fabulous week in this gorgeous condo and can't say enough about it. We found the location to be just perfect. it is just outside of the main center of Tamarindo. It's close enough to the town center that we could walk to it along the beach or along the road, but yet a little outside of the hustle and bustle. The people were very warm and friendly. Mike, the owner, and Lola, the property manager, were very responsive and easy to deal with. The property description is true and accurate. It really does have fabulous views! We enjoyed beautiful sunsets over the ocean while sitting on the covered terrace. I can't say enough good things about this condo. I highly recommend it."
