My wife, daughter and a her friend stayed here for 2 weeks this last winter. We had a lovely time and this place was everything that was advertised and more. Very well maintained. Freddy was not only a great caretaker but became a good friend. He made sure we were happy with everything. We really enjoyed the horses and riding on the beach and through the forest. I simply cannot say enough good about this place. If you choose to go here you will not be disappointed.

We miss you Freddi!

  • 4 of 5

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at Rancho Tambor and I must say the second time was even better than the first! You can find many nice vacation rentals in this area but that was not the reason we decided to have a return stay here. The house is great and the pool is fabulous....not to mention having access to horses whenever you feel like going on a horseback ride on the beach! However what drew my friends and I back was the property caretaker Freddi and his family. For an out of country experience we've never felt safer than when we stay at Rancho Tambor. When we leave the house Freddi has stayed there keeping watch for however long we may be gone and always has the true "Pura Vida" mentality. Once again the property was great (in need of a little year to year maintenance here and there) but the true experience is the love and care we felt from Freddi and his family! Thank you for another true Costa Rican experience!

We had an excellent time. Week of Jan 18 – 28th, 2012. The weather was perfect, and it was so peaceful to relax by the pool and enjoy the jungle life. Freddy took us out riding 4 times during our visit. Each time was in a different direction. The horses were fun and well behaved. We were very comfortable and our stay in Costa Rica was the best. The only bad thing was, “we had to leave!”

peaceful oasis

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful peaceful home away from it all! We were surrounded by nature and the wonderful people of Costa Rica for 7 days. Loved the pool, open air house,horses and our friend/manager Freddy and his family. Maryellen was wonderful to work with, would recommend this home and location to anyone who wants to relax,enjoy nature and get away from it all. Would love to return again!

Excellent place to relax

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stay a week in december.

We love the place, very confortable, the pool is great, and the jacuzzi in the bathrooms are great to relax.

Very nice beaches close by (with a car), "La Joya", "San Juanillo", "Junquillal", "Avellanas".

Excellent for doing mountain bike, running, horse riding.

I dont recommend for small children because of the pool. but for children that know how to swim or adults the pool is great.

Peace and Quite near the beach

  • 5 of 5

The home is very nice and fully equiped, there was even a drum set. The two apartments were also nice since we had two couples. The location is not far from the beach, and the beach is not a tourist place so only a few local were ever on the beach with us. Black sand and miles to walk with no worries. Freddy the grounds keeper was great and helped with everything. The pool was nice to return to each day and only problem was that we had to leave. Tamarindo is about 45 minutes away and the Iguanazul reseraunt is 20 minutes and great food and sunset views. I would return to this place again and again if possible. The owner was also very helpful with information since it was our first time in Costa Rica. You will love it!
