  • Cute property. Clean and quiet.

    "We loved having this casita to ourselves. It was a two bedroom with plenty of living space. Kitchen was a good size. Washed and dryer next to kitchen was a nice touch. The walk to the beach was about 10-15 minutes. We wish we could have used the outdoor space more but it was too hot! Shelley and Robert were super helpful as were the the folks at Horizon Pacific who help manage the property. We would definitely recommend this to future travelers. PURA VIDA!"

  • 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."

  • Pura Vida discovered!

    "If you aren't particular about the brand of chocolate, on your turned down pillow, and you want to know where to find the "real" Costa Rica, Casa Boaz is the place. We spent a week there, during rainy season, and discovered something new every day, thanks to the amazing host/owner, Andy. Although nestled in a quiet, off the main road location, Casa Boaz was easy to find. We discovered a beautiful, private, boutique hotel, immaculately maintained, and perfect for our small family, of three. Our seven year old daughter loved the pool! No cookie cutter hotel rooms here, each "casa" has its own distinct ambiance, and charms. We had more than enough room for the three of us, in our one-bedroom condo, and had our own fully equipped kitchen, AC, fans, hot water, and all the necessities. We liked the feeling of being "out of town", but just steps from the action, in Tamarindo. The hotel is a fantastic facility, and very comfortable, but only a small part of what makes Casa Boaz, the best place to stay in Tamarindo. The owner, Andy, was amazing, he was a big reason we were able to enjoy far more, than we would have, staying in a generic resort. Andy's bio says he spent a long time in Vail, CO, where he certainly learned what "World Class" service means. He's surfed every inch of every beach in the area, and guided us to places we would never have discovered without a "local's" knowledge. We were lucky that he had the time to really help us discover a lot of the country, outside of Tamarindo (we spend three weeks in CR, and followed his guidance to the letter, it was perfect). We hired him to teach our daughter to surf, and he had her riding waves in minutes. He was able to teach me, how to help her get going on the waves, and she can't wait to go again (but only after ski season is over in Bozeman)! The best part of Casa Boaz was the food! I grew up in Chicago, I am a deep dish guy to my soul, but Andy's New York style thin cheese pizza, rivals any thick crust sausage patty pizza, from Lou Malnotti's, I have ever had. Simply amazing, and worth the trip, if you are a true pizza aficionado! We also were privileged to get Andy to cook for us. We bought the ingredients, he knew where to get the best stuff, the beer, and wine; and were treated to a couple of the best meals we had during our entire trip. Staying at Casa Boaz was the best move we made, during our trip, and the vacation would not have been as incredible without a stop at Andy's place."

  • 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!"
