  • Casa Surfside lived up to all our expectations

    "We enjoyed our visit to Casa Surfside! It is certainly a very comfortable Casa on a beautiful Surfside location. As first-time visitors, there is always some anxiety about "will it be as described – what did negative aspects were not mentioned" – etc. But Casa Surfside was just as described and lived up to all our expectations. We are hard-pressed to find any negative aspects – I didn't find any gold doubloons in the beach sand, and I couldn't use Mark's kayak, but otherwise we had an excellent holiday and Jorge and his minions do a good job in maintaining and providing for a comfortable stay. We hope we will be able to return before too long."

  • Fabulous condo and property!!!

    "We came to Tamarindo for our annual girls getaway. This condo was perfect and the property was heavenly! We had breakfast on the terrace daily and the views from the terrace made you feel like you were in a secluded tropical oasis. There's even a view of the ocean as you shower in the master bath. Amazing! The condo had everything we needed: beach towels, washer dryer, laundry detergent, diswasher, huge refrigerator & freezer. The pool areas (2 of them) were at least double to size of the Diria Hotel and 5x better! Restaurants, the beach, and activities were within 5 mins walk of the condo. You don't need a car, unless you plan to get out of the Tamarindo area frequently. There are two mini marts within walking distance and a larger and really nice supermarket 5 mins drive. Taxi there costs $2-$3. I travel alot during the year for work and fun. This is one of the best properties in which I've stayed. I highly recommend this property."

  • Perfect location on the island!

    "This was a great place for a quiet girl's trip, a couple, or small family. We were three women who wanted a Caribbean vacation AWAY from the resorts and cruise areas. The home was clean, and in a perfect location for the ocean breeze. Travelers should know you must walk along a trail to reach the property, but the view, quiet location, and breeze is worth the walk. The caretakers were very kind, accommodating and was even waiting for us with a light when we were not back before dark. The kitchen had basic supplies for cooking, although we had a little trouble with the propane tank. Santiago was quick to get us another one and help us connect it. One air conditioner worked well, but was very noisy. The other didn't work. The property manager quickly sent a repairman, but it was unrepairable. Sleeping was a bit warm in that bedroom! My only suggestion is to provide some sheets with a higher cotton content (I'm being very picky here). If you've looked into this area, you know that this island is still off the beaten path which has advantages, and some disadvantages. The people are extremely kind, but there was a mugging the previous month so be cautious walking at night. We (three women) felt very safe during the day. A local, named Rene', was a good guide if you want to take a day trip or go out at night. There was also quite a bit of trash everywhere, but the area around the home is relatively clean. On a calm day you can snorkel down the path, and the Firefly restaurant was a wonderful place to get a meal. The water taxis are easy to use and can take you anywhere in the area for a low cost. This was a great place for our adventure! Highly recommended!"
