  • Wonderful Location!!! BEAUTIFUL VIEW!!!!

    "Just got back from a week in Tamarindo, Costa Rica at the beautiful Diria Condo. There were two couples, and was so nice for each of us to have a master suite! Perfect Location... We could walk Tamarindo Beach, around to Playa Longusta Beach, take the boat across ($1 each way) and walk on Playa Grande Beach (be sure to take water with you and LOTS of sunscreen). The views were just beautiful from the balcony. The sunset photos I took with my cell phone on the beach were just beautiful, though pretty sunset from the balcony. The first morning that the "nature alarm clock" went off I sat up straight in the bed and screamed (and hit my husband awake). Sounded like an old furnace in a horror movie, but ran out to the balcony to see it was the howler monkeys playing in the trees and eating some type of berries off of it. There were around 5 that hung out there each morning (one with a baby that was fun to watch play). They did leave a gift of poop on our lower balcony... LOL!!!! The condo did have everything we needed... Joel even got us an ice chest before we arrived and we used it every day (the Imperial Light is close to taste of Coors Lite and the Lemon Rock is close to Bud Light Lime). Also you can get Cokes, Fanta, bottles of water, milk, etc. at the grocery store (and bags of ice). The worst thing was the 106 steps from the pool/town level, up to the top bedroom. I did thankfully prepare for the trip by going to the local hospital 3 weeks prior and started walking their stairs. Otherwise after the first day there I would not have been able to walk... LOL!!! HINT... DO IT!!! We rented a car from Dollar Car Rental (they picked us up at the airport and shuttled us to their place to pick up the car). Got a 4-wheel drive SUV. As you will read, it is true that a lot of the roads are not paved, dirt, rocks, and we were so thankful for the SUV, but never had to use the 4-wheel drive. We drove to Borinquen and did their 2-in-1 Adventure for $60. 4-wheeler ride (or horses), overlook, waterfalls, and best 12 ziplines in the world! From condo could walk to everything in town. Lots of places to eat. Even went in the casino for 30 minutes and our group won $675!!!! The beach is beautiful, but there is a riptide, so be careful! The Costa Rican people were so nice and we made some new friends who begged us to come back!!! You MUST go visit Costa Rica!!!"

  • Very Relaxing!

    "This place is a little hidden gem! The pictures truly don't do it justice. We took our two teenagers here for spring break/senior trip. We didn't know that spring break was the busiest week in Costa Rica. Most of the people that live in Costa Rica get that week off as well. BUT that is what was so great about this house. It is VERY private, clean and comfortable. The week we went was very hot. We would go to the beach early in the morning until around 11 (when it would start to get crowded) then we would go back to the house and chill at the pool and the shade until around 4:30 and then go back to the beach to play in the waves. Tamarindo was pretty crowded but the kitchen had everything we needed and we ate most of our meals there. The grocery store is very close and had just about everything we needed. I would recommend this house to anyone who asked about going to Costa Rica. Thank you so much for sharing your home, we loved it!!"

  • Wonderful Tamarindo 'Hideaway'

    "Every bit of information about this excellent 2 bedroom home was absolutely 'right on'. It was off the main street area, but just a half block from 'the action'. My wife and son and I were able to walk to many of the nice restaurants and the beaches nearby. The two bedrooms are very large and are air conditioned, which was nice in August. The large living and dining area was not air conditioned but we did not spend that much time in there. We enjoyed our morning breakfast and coffee on the wonderful pool deck. When we arrived we had some issues with the WiFi and the coffee maker did not work. We reported this to Maria, the property manager, and she promptly had technician come and fix the WiFi the same day. She also brought a brand new coffee maker for us to use that day. Very responsive to any questions and those were really the only two minor problems we had. It is very comfortable and we would definitely stay there again. Some of the restaurants we liked were Dragonfly, Bamboo, and Pizzeria La Baula. We also spent one day at the Playa Langosta Beach Club and for $10 per person we were treated like members for the day. Lounges on the beach, pool privileges, etc. Great time there in Costa Rica."

  • 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."
