  • Absolute Heaven

    "The stars reflected like little lights in the smooth sheets of water that washed up on the beach in front of the house the evening we arrived. That is when I knew we were in for something special staying at Sand Dollar Cove. We were given exacting instructions on how to get there. The roads were easy to navigate and were in good condition, though the trek is not for the feint of heart. We wanted to get away from it all and enjoy time with family and friends in a setting ripe for adventure and SDC was the perfect fit for us. Our party included four adults and six children, four of whom were teenagers. We spent our days reading in the hammocks (great collection of books at the house - thanks!), sitting on the spacious porch overlooking the beach, boogie boarding, playing in the waves and riding the bike along the beach all the way to the estuary. In San Francisco de Coyote, we discovered a bakery and got to know the local grocer; he made us special drinks & helped us find food for all those teenagers. Pat (the manager) made sure we had all we needed and helped arrange to do a kayak trip through the mangroves. She had great recommendations for restaurants that were a short drive away. Cheo (the caretaker) brought us fresh eggs every morning, made pinto gallo & fresh tortillas for us, fried up fresh fish and made enough arroz con pollo that we actually had leftovers! (no small feat with a house full of teenagers) Cheo's son took the kids fishing one morning and Cheo made a bonfire for us on the beach. The howling monkeys woke us in the morning and we quickly adapted to the local habit of going to bed with the sun. By week's end, we felt like locals and could have stayed forever."

  • Great vacation in Langosta Beach.

    "We stayed in two different units in this building in late January. For three nights we stayed in a ground floor level apartment, for the second half we moved up to a second floor unit. Both apartments have similar two bedroom layouts. Ground floor had a large patio and the second floor had a large balcony. There were plenty of linens, towels, beach towels, fully equiped kitchens, washer/dryer, ceiling fans, comfortable furnishing and air conditioning. They did provide a roll away cot. The building rep Bob Wilson met us when we checked in and gave us useful tips about the condo, the beach cub and the general area. There was a concierge in the lobby during business hours. There was someone stationed at the gate 24 hours a day. We felt completely safe and secure. The street in front is not paved, it is a tar covered rocky road. It is quite busy for such a remote and quiet area. Not heavy traffic, just a light constant stream of cars, buses and motorcycles. The buidling backs onto a nature preserve. We did see monkeys right outside our balcony. There were plenty of birds as well. Howler monkeys early in the morning. One negative of this locations was there were a couple of nights when our bedroom was overcome by a terrible skunk odor. It passed, but it did wake me in the middle of the night. The sliding doors to the balconies and patios don't quite seal so you have to be prepared for visiting bugs (waterbugs and mosquitos) and even small iguanas (or lizards?) scurrying though the apartment. Te groud floor unit was a little worse for the wear. The freezer leaked water from the water dispenser so every time you opened the freezer door water spilled on the kitchen floor. This was annoying. All of the burners on the stovetop did not fire up. The second floor unit had great A/C except for the second bedroom, it was very warm and coldn't be cooled down. The housekeeping staff was excellent. The building is very well maintained. Every morning they sweep the outdoor pathways as well as the inside lobby and staircase. They were painting the lobby when we were there. The elevator was not in service but that was no big deal as we were on the ground level and the second floor."

  • Wonderful vacation!

    "From the moment we contacted the owner regarding our vacation up until check out, we were impressed. The house was just as described and fit 9 of us comfortably (2 families = 4 adults and 5 children). The house was perfectly located in Hacienda Pinilla with access to the JW Marriott as well as the hacienda pinilla beach club. Cynthia was very accommodating and helped us with dinner reservations as well as setting up activities. Would highly recommend Pangas and Green Papaya to eat, both located in Tamarindo. The highlight of the trip was taking surf lessons with Rafa. Also, the housekeeper was a wonderful addition as she cooked authentic Costa Rican food and cleaned during our stay. We did pay to rent the golf cart, but found that we used our rental cars instead."

  • AMAZING FAMILY VACATION!!!

    "What an AMAZING VILLA!!.....1st Time using Homeaway and hope our future stays around the world will be as Amazing as Villa Jazmin. The only problem is you don't ever want to leave. Villa Jazmin is in the center of everything, you don't ever have to go to far for activities or entertainment. Costa Rica will be a hard vacation to top for future Family Trips. Cathy Thank you soooo much for sharing your Amazing Villa with us....it was 10 days in Paradise. Tamarindo is safe and relaxing, the people are all soo welcoming, friendly and helpful. We will definitely be coming back or buying our own villa next door :-) Lawrence Family Northridge, CA"
