  • Enjoyable and Relaxing

    "We truly enjoyed our stay at El Destino. We had two families with three kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. The penthouse was well maintained, clean and had all the necessary amenities. Even though we stayed during Cost Rica's busy Easter holiday week, the beach was still pretty much ours, quite and relaxing. The grounds were well maintained, the pool was wonderful and the beach with its breath taking sunset were gorgeous. The beach had some nice waves to do some body surfing or boogie boarding, yet shallow enough that we didn't need to worry about the kids at all. There were a number of very good restaurants and a grocery store within a short walk, so we didn't feel a need to rent a car. The owners and the property management were wonderful to work with on excursions and there are plenty to choose from. The owners had a great book on excursions, restaurants, and other to do's in the area, which was great. We spent the majority of our time either on the beach or pool relaxing. No issues with security or not feeling safe during our entire trip. This was our first VRBO and definitely something we'll do again."

  • Beautiful home with a nice lake view

    "It is indeed a beautiful home with a nice lake view (and volcano view on a clear day). We enjoyed the wide open living areas and nice, big bedrooms. Unfortunately, its location is not ideal if you plan to spend most of your time in the La Fortuna area, where most of the attractions and activities are. Even though distance-wise it is not too far, it will take around an hour each way because of the narrow, winding road. Another issue we had was the bedsheets do not look clean because of the wear and the stains. We also found some hair in one of the beds and the bed covers of the twin beds had lots of short hairs (guessing pet hairs?). Otherwise, it was a really nice home. Stephanie was very nice and responsive in all our communications. Jorge was there to meet us despite a delay on our arrival, was always available to answer our questions, and helped us resolve an issue with the wireless router/internet service. Overall, we had a good time at the house. Thanks, Stephanie and Ron, for sharing your beautiful home with us."

  • Best view in Tamarindo, Booking again next year

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The best feature after the view is the infinity pool, which was the perfect temperature. We were a group of 12, mostly active senior couples, from NY, CA , SC and London, getting together to enjoy a vacation in a beautiful spot. We all enjoyed the 2-hr trip up the estuary viewing crocs, howler monkeys, many species of bird and sea creatures.<br> The layout of the house affords exceptional privacy, high-end details and furnishings, and very helpful caretakers who took care of our every need and question. Tennis was walking distance with excellent facilities. Favorite restaurant was Nogie's on the beachfront; incredibly fresh seafood, good service, moderate prices, great view - ate there three times!"
