9 bedrooms 1 convertable , 8 full bathrooms 1 half, sleeps minimum 2 maximum 24

(Will Beat Any Price of Comparable Listing)The Lucky Monkey is a very unique property . First, when looking at the first picture of the Lucky Monkey in the ad the building located at the front left is Lucky Monkey 1 or (LM1) and the building in the back right is Lucky Monkey 2 or (LM2). They are on the same piece of property and they have a shared pool in the middle . (LMI) has 5 BRs with a 220 degree panaramic view and sleeps 14.

It has separate parking in the back and a private entrance. (It has a spectacular view of Tamarindo Bay & about 120 degree ocean view from the top two levels, ocean is visible from the lower level.

Casa Lucky Monkey # 1/ Master suite: Lucky Monkey # 1 is the biggest of the 2 houses & has four bd. rms. on the first two levels and a master suite on the third level. The master suite has a separate kitchen and dinning area, private entrance, separate parking in the back, but can easily be combined to the rest of the house by opening/closing one security door with a deadbolt lock. It also has a separate set of stairs. All of the rooms in (LM1) and the master suite have king size beds (5 including the master suite/ which also has a standard pullout couch), plus their is a standard pull out in the largest room on the second floor along with the king size bed (good for parents that want to keep their children in the same room or family members who don't mind sharing).

Casa Lucky Monkey # 2: Casa Lucky Monkey II -4/5 bedroom spectacular House 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk to Tamarindo beach, made famous by the classic surf flick 'Endless Summer'. From the house perched on the hill above Tamarindo bay the ocean view is visible beyond the seascape sunset. The ocean view is visible beyond the trees even from the ground floor and the view from the higher floors becomes progressively scenic. The living area opens on to a patio through 2 sliding glass doors to the pool. This large ground floor living area is convertible by a wooden retractable wall, creating a 5th bedroom with a pull out bed and private bath. Also on the first floor is a beautiful new kitchen, with stunning granite counter tops and giant windows that flood the room with tropical sunshine. It is not uncommon to see a troop of friendly monkeys in the trees next to the houses. It is a steal for the price and you'll have a time to remember.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Great value, lots of space.

Reynaldo P from Key West, Florida recommends this property

Stayed 6 days in February, 2010

Website pictures don't do any justice to the house it was very spacious. Walking to town is a short 10 min. walk. A cab ride back will cost about $4-$5 but renting a vehicle is the way to go, it makes it a lot easier to get to the supermarket and such.

The town is being develop very quickly, and you can experience monkeys hanging out on the trees outside the house, at the same time a couple of small field mice made their way inside the house, this being a huge no no in the States but taking our surroundings into consideration is to be expected.

Great place!! I highly recommend it!!

EXCELLENT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
I vacationed in quite a beautiful country at a very beautiful villa called the Lucky Monkey in Costa Rica. Costa Rica borders both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The Lucky Monkey is located in Tamarindo, a town of beautiful nature, amazing beaches, restaurants and cafés. All of these gave me the possibility to have fine dining and vacationing. There were different types of cuisine from Mexican to Asian. There were places for golfing and tennis. I was impressed with organized local tourisms and very educated tour guides. We enjoyed a special tour on a river where I could see huge alligators, iguanas, and birds, but the best part of the trip was staying at the Lucky Monkey Villa. Two beautiful 3 story buildings with a swimming pool in between them with spectacular views of the beach and ocean. The villa is located next to the attractive park zone. I could hear singing of the birds and hollering monkeys. I can see them and holler with them from a balcony. I can see the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and the town. My room was spacey and comfortable, tastefully decorated with all necessities. Thank you Lucky Monkey owner for a beautiful place to stay during our well-organized vacation.

AWESOME HOUSES! HAD A GREAT TIME.

  • 5 of 5
This was our very first visit to Costa Rica and much to my surprise, the experience could not have been better. The suites were clean, the beds comfy, the property and pool well maintained. The management took very good care of our group with lots of options and ideas for our entertainment. Our days were blissful starting with waking up to the sounds of birds, having our first cup of coffee on the terrace with a view of the ocean. In the evenings the sunset, the breeze and then all those stars were remarkable. We even took a day trip to Liberia with the bus trip being almost the highlight. We had the fortune of hearing the monkeys in the woods behind the houses. Seeing them in their natural environment was way better than seeing them on a tour. As you can tell, we would highly recommend the Lucky Monkey. It was beautiful, peaceful, restful and allowed us to be still, to truly enjoy the moment. But amazing how fast the time went.

Best place I've ever stayed in Costa Rica
  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely amazing time at the Lucky Monkey! The location was beautiful and very conveniently located to the downtown area. The management team was extremely helpful, and really contributed to our great time. We would highly recommend this house to any group looking to hangout poolside and have a good time. Will definetly be back!

WEDDING STAY AT THE LUCKY MONKEY- STAY AWAY

  • 1 of 5
Pros: The size of the house allows for large groups.

Cons: When we arrived, we were given what seemed like 100 keys which weren't labeled. It took us quite a long time to figure out which keys went where. Some went to nothing and some places we never did get keys too. We never were able to access the rooftop terrace despite many requests to obtain keys. When we first got to the houses, one of them REEKED of pesticide and there were dead bugs throughout the house. We lost power a few times and on two occasions guests tried to re-set the circuit breaker and got shocked bad enough to cause pain throughout the day.

The worst part about our stay, however, was that on our last night, both houses were broken into. We collectively had about 14,000 dollars worth of cell phones, ipods, laptops, gps's, jewelry, etc. stolen. We spent the last night of our wedding celebration week filling out police reports. Its central america and these things happen, unfortunately. However, I do place responsibility largely on the owners of the LM houses because the sliding glass doors did not have locks- they had bolts on the inside. On our first night, we got to the house and NONE of the keys worked to the 2nd house and the management company couldn't find them at the time so they sent someone to get into the house for us. As the man demonstrated, it was possible to break into the house without a key. It took him about 15 minutes to pop the bolt out from the outside. This is how both houses were broken into on the last night. When I returned the keys the next day and told the property manager what had happened, his response was "Yeah, those sliding glass doors are pretty cheap- they always get targeted." Hmm.... wish I would've known that before booking. Furthermore, there was only 1 small safe in each house- definitely not enough to store everyone's valuables. There needs to be a safe in every room and the security of the house absolutely needs updating. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND staying here unless these changes have been made. The location is also poor- it takes about 30 minutes to walk to the downtown area- and its not a pretty walk- which forced us to drive most of the time. With so many options on VRBO, I would look elsewhere.

Note: the owner did refund 25% of our stay due to the robbery, which we split between our guests.

Owner's Response: This was truly an unfortunate incident at the Lucky Monkey. We have now taken all precautions and have remedied all issues in this review. First, in August we installed a top of the line professional alarm system with a private response team which should alleviate any security issues like the one’s experienced in this incident. We have also installed two more safes, one in in each house to total four, which are large enough to accommodate any type of large laptops and electrical instruments of equal size. We have gone through the houses completely and remedied any other of the issues brought to our attention in this review. The key issue was a mistake as the clients were given all of the keys instead of the normal set designated for the guests. This set is much smaller and much easier to manage. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our guests. Thank you and we are more confident now than ever that you will thoroughly enjoy your stay at the Lucky Monkey.

COULDN'T HAVE BEEN HAPPIER WITH THIS PLACE

Couldn't have been happier with this place
  • 5 of 5
Our party of 20 stayed here early this year February and we're planning to go back next year. The place is ENORMOUS and couldn't have been better suited for a large party. Our vacation was a family reunion. The two houses are connected by the backyard which has a pool. This was the favorite place to congregate for everyone. There was plenty of privacy which was an initial concern for my wife. As soon as we arrived she was instantly relieved at the set-up. Everything was clean and modern, which was exactly what we wanted. Management team perfect, walk to town 10 minutes max.

We'll be here again no doubt about it. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

GREAT PLACE. LOVED IT!!

  • 5 of 5
This place was fantastic! We had a large party and the Lucky Monkey was perfect. The houses are connected by the backyard which has a pool. We had the option of getting both houses or just one. We took both and had the best reunion. The houses were very clean and had views of the ocean from many of the rooms. The management was very helpful and the house had everything we needed.

We'll be back again.
