  • had a great time. perfect location

    "this place was perfect for us. my friends and i went on a surf trip and wanted to stay in tamarindo. so balcones de pacifico was exactly what we were looking for. access to the condo was extremely easy. it has a little parking lot which has 24 hour guard watching over the gate and cars. so if you have a rental car you dont have to worry about vandalism or theft while its parked here. as for the place itself, its fully air conditioned, has a functional kitchen if you decide you want to make meals for yourself, and is just off the main road that goes through tamarindo.. if you go right it takes you the best restaurant in town (patagonia) and a nice little shaded beach access point. if you go left it takes you to a slew of fun bars, supermarket, a bank, and other restaurants as well... all within walking distance. tamarindo has everything you would want.. beautiful beaches with sunsets, great food, cool souvenir stores, and fun nightlife. if you are looking to travel and see some cool beaches and stuff go to playa avellanas, playa marbella, and playa grande. also a really cool waterfall about an hour away called llanos de cortes. if you have any qiestion or concerns, the property manager and the owner had a pretty fast response time via email. no issues. i only have one negative. as someone that lives wrinkle free, i did not see an iron. but other than that i would definitely come back. i hope your stay was as pleasant as mine. Pura Vida!"

  • Lovely home, some service improvements needed

    "My family and I recently stayed at Casa Temoana, and here is a summary that might be useful for others considering it for their vacation. The House: The house itself is very inviting, with well-ventilated open spaces all around. This is a two-story house, where you have the rooms in the second floor, and a master room and the social areas on the first floor. A big open kitchen, with all necessary appliances, a rustic wooden table as dinning space, and lounge area, good for a chat with friends or to play games at night, creating an appealing laid-back environment. This is not a luxurious house, as compared with other houses in Hacienda Pinilla, and there is no central A/C, so for those of you that suffer under high temperatures, this might not be the best option (rooms do have A/C). The Pool and Rancho: The pool and the adjacent “rancho” is where you will spend most of your stay. The water temperature is just perfect; you can spend all day in here. A small part of the pool is shallow, just perfect for little kids, and the rest of the pool is just deep enough to be able to stay cool, but allows you to stand without problem. The Rancho is an open area with a hammock, a table, some chairs, and a BBQ. The hammock is just great to read, and feel the breeze. The Service: We found the service to be sub-par. House cleaning was only provided some of the days we stayed; there was no toilet paper (we had to buy our own); we invited two friends for dinner and were told by the house keeper that we would have to pay extra for this; the pool was not cleaned on a regular basis (we had to clean it ourselves); the laundry room was locked so we couldn’t use the dryer for our towels, and an overall hyper-vigilant attitude from the house keeper that we found unacceptable at this price range. All in all, we had a great time at Casa Temoana; however, we think they need to improve the service in order to be competitive with the other rental houses in the area."

  • A perfect vacation spot

    "Our family has traveled quite a bit over the years, so when my 20 year old son summed up our time at Villa Artemis as "the best vacation ever" I knew that we had found a gem. The house is spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. The layout with 4 individual bedroom/bathrooms on two levels, a central living area/kitchen, outdoor side porch with hammocks, and pool overlooking the beach is ideal, providing just the right amount of personal space. The view of Tamarindo Beach and beyond is nothing short of spectacular, especially at sunrise and sunset. When we arrived, there was fresh fruit and coffee waiting for us and William (the rental agent) and Minor (the groundskeeper) are extremely friendly and helpful. We spent time on the beach, went to the rodeo in Villareal (a few kms away), chartered a fishing boat, and some of us took a day trip to the Rincon de la Vieja National Park (two of my three adult sons could not be torn away from the house). Not only would I recommend Villa Artemis to a friend, I already have! As others have said in their reviews, this was our first trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica, but will certainly not be our last."
