  • 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!!!"

  • Fun Family Week

    "Hi Heidi - we’re back and we all had a great time. Your place worked well for all of us especially with all the space. Your suggestions were good - Tamarindo Shuttle Company was prompt in our airport transfers and did our all day tour to Belingqua (sp?) with a horseback ride, huge 12 station zipline and pool. We ate twice at Pechanga and once at Patagonia - all very good. The grandkids did two 2 hour surfing lessons through Banana Surf -the instructor was great with the kids and the beach was perfect for learning. Also did a 4 hour snorkel trip set up by Tamarindo Shuttle. All in all a very fun relaxing week. Thanks."

  • Very clean and comfortable condo in Tamarindo!

    "We really enjoyed staying at Tamarindo Azul in January 2016. The condo has two large bedrooms with king beds, one bedroom has an attached full bathroom and the other can easily use the full bathroom that is the next door to it in the hall. It was nice being on the top floor of the building, as the view is great and the ceilings are vaulted. We didn't mind the walk to town/beach, which is approximately 1-1.5km, depending on where you're going in town. There are a couple hills on the way back up to the condo, but you can also easily grab a cab for a few bucks on the way back up from town. Every cab knew right where "Tamarindo Azul" was when we decided to take a cab back. We only ever saw one other couple using the pool a couple times, even though it was high season, and we pretty much had the place to ourselves for the week. We also had other family members staying in a nearby property, and we were much happier with Tamarindo Azul than they were with their condo. They had much smaller beds, some plumbing issues in the shower, and a lot of dust because they were at street level."

  • One of the best Vactions ever

    "My family of 8 visited Costa Rica in July 2016 and stayed at Casa Marbella. It is a beautiful, spacious house and well-appointed. The beds were great and I slept like a baby. Plenty of restrooms for my wife and three daughters. There are two masters with huge bathrooms. Our large family never felt cramped. Overall a great house to spend your vacation. I was anticipating the house being located more in the jungle but it is actually in a subdivision and you had to go through 2 guard gates. Although the backyard does have some trees and vegetation it was not as dense as I thought it would be. We did see the fruit bats that camped each day on the front porch awning. Also saw a tarantula. Neither the bats nor the tarantula paid us any attention and I thought it was actually a cool experience. Didn't see any monkeys at the house. The pool was a lot of fun but we only used it 3 or 4 times and never for any length of time. It is a bit narrower than the pictures looked to me. But we spent a lot of time at Playa Avellana and the Beach Club. Playa Avellana is so sandy and soft. The Beach Club beach is a bit rocky and I stumped my toes a few times under water. The Beach Club and Playa Avellana are about a five minute walk from each other. The water temperature is enjoyable and when I had enough of the ocean, I never really got too hot sitting on the beach either. Maybe that explains why we were at the beach for almost 10 hours one day. We loved the beaches. Sunsets are beautiful. I recommend eating at Lola's at Playa Avellana also. Sooo good. We ate at home most nights and the kitchen was more than adequate. Food prices are bit expensive, more than the US I thought. But it is a tourist area. The golf cart came in handy when going to the JW Marriott and the Beach Club. I'm also a runner so running inside the property was no problem and I found some cool routes. All in all, this house is great. A cell phone was provided which was a nice touch. Cyn, the property manager, was great and booked a lot of excursions for us and plugged the routes into the phone so we wouldn't get lost. I highly recommend Pura Aventura for ziplines. We also went scuba diving at Catalina Island and saw 3 bull sharks and a group of manta rays. What a great thrill. We used Aqua Rica and Billy was great to dive with but they did have to reschedule us. Small inconvenience. But if you visit Costa Rica, be aware the roads are really bad. Recommend a SUV is you rent a car."
