  • Absolutely a beautiful place to stay!

    "Casa Tangaroa is an absolutely beautiful place to stay! There was three generations of our family together for vacation and this hous was perfect for us. With plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, everyone had their space. The views are amazing! The kitchen was perfect for the cooking that we did do, and meals on the deck, looking at the scenery was a great way to start or end the day! We all loved the pool, it was so nice to swim & cool off and plenty of room for all 8 of us! Steve the house manager was very helpful with everything about the house AND helping us set up our activities! We were all so pleased with the house and would definitely recommend it!!!"

  • A little bit of heaven off the (literally) beaten path

    "My 18 year old daughter, her friend and I just spent 10 heavenly days at Maison Marazul. The house and property were wonderful and perfect for our little group. The two suites are set up quite independently of each other and gave us the space an adult and two teenagers require. The property is right on the beach, with just the right amount of landscaping to keep the house private but still be able to see the surf. From the comfort of our loungers we spied iguana, geckos, monkeys, squirrels, parrots,magpies, heron and hummingbirds . Every evening we sat on the loungers at the beach and marvelled at the stunning sunsets. We had a mix of active days and relaxing days. On the relaxing days the hardest part of my day was choosing my spot! Chaise by pool, chaise on the lawn, chaise on the beach, arm chair on one of 3 porches or the hammock (pick the hammock!!!). Hide tide or low tide the beach was always great. At low tide you can walk the beach for hours in either direction. The tide pools are so interesting and big enough to relax in! You can't swim right in front of the house, but there is a small swimming area two minutes away ( in front of Florblanca resort) or Santa Theresa beach is a 10 minute walk away. The kitchen is completely equipped with everything you need to prepare full meals. They had salt, pepper, sugar, oil, vinegar and lots of spices available for use. Generally we ate breakfast and lunch at home, then went out to many wonderful restaurants for dinner. There is a binder full of information in the house with great restaurant and activity suggestions. Our concierge Tania set up two great excursions for us, zip-lining in Mal Pais ( the family who runs it are so much fun) and a snorkelling/touring/fishing tour with a great guide named Micho. The girls had a great surf lesson with Taylor (expat Canadian) from Surf 360 in Santa Theresa. We rented a 4x4 Daihatsu Bego ( arranged by Mario the property manager) and wouldn't have enjoyed the vacation as much without it. With the car we checked out Hermosa beach, the falls at Montezuma, Santa Theresa and Mal Pais. There was so much more we could have done but it was hard to leave the wonderful house! I would love to go back....right now! The 3 house staff deserve a big thank you. They keep the house and the gardens clean, beautiful and safe. I don't recommend the house for families with young children as the second and third rooms are accessed from outside the main house."

  • A wonderful vacation

    "I stayed with my two children, their spouses, and two grandchildren for 8 days in this beautiful slice of heaven. The house was beautiful, right on the ocean, and fully equipped. The check-in and check-out procedures were efficient and friendly. While the bedrooms were air conditioned, the main house was not. That did not provide any problems, but visitors who need cool spaces should take note. We used the pool a lot as an alternative to the fairly rough surf which was great for the surfers, but not so good for the children. We enjoyed walking on the beach to Dominical which was about 20 minutes away but not accessible during high tide. Taxis were inexpensive and available; however, we ended up renting a car there for better travel options. I look forward to returning."

  • great stay at the beach

    "We enjoyed our stay very much. the weather was perfect. the house was very comfortable, and had all the amenities of houses in the US (including A/C). the house is beachfront, and the plunge pool was very refreshing. the location was perfect - Esterillos Oeste, while small, has everything you need for an extended stay - variety of restaurants, small grocery store, fresh fruit, and the freshly caught fish. not a bad drive from San Jose about 1-1/2 hours, and close to both Jaco and Manuel Antonio. Both Kate and Dave were very accommodating to every request we made. If we return to Costa Rica, we would certainly consider staying here again."
