About The Owner

I am an orthopedic surgeon from So Cal who has traveled and surfed in Costa Rica for years. I will retire there someday, but in the meantime, will rent out my tropical oasis for vacationers to enjoy. I hope to add onto the home in the future - maybe 2 more levels. This home has great potential.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Playa Langosta

I have been traveling to Tamarindo for many years and always wanted to buy a home in the area. I love Costa Rica and Tamarindo is the best area to visit. Playa Langosta is a beautiful beach that is located near the Tamarindo area. It's a great place to own property.

What makes this house unique

The property offers a close beach proximity and privacy. It is close to the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo, but retains tranquility. The house is the perfect place for a family vacation. There is a huge living room with kitchen and living room islands that is great for entertaining small crowds. There is also a wine refrigerator. The home interior is exquisite and the exterior is very functional with a beautiful tropical garden and pool/jacuzzi.

Beautiful, spacious house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is comfortable, spacious and beautiful! It was a great place to relax in the evening by the pool or in the "backyard" patio after a busy day of activities. Just a quick walk to the beach. Great to walk the beach to Tamarindo at low tide (or spend hours exploring the tide pools). Just a $5 cab ride to/from Tamarindo. Maria, the property manager, was helpful with recommendations for surf lessons and restaurants. My daughters loved Princess (or Prince?), the resident cat! We enjoyed surf lessons, scuba diving, snorkeling, boogie boarding, zip lining and lots of amazing food in the Tamarindo restaurants. I've already recommended this home to friends who are planning to visit Costa Rica!

Casa Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Great house in nice location. Everything listed was as it had been disclosed. The nine of us enjoyed every minute. The cable went down and DVD was not working but playing cards, talking with family and reading was not a bad compromise. Everyone loved the resident cat and the surprise visit from a neighborhood raccoon. the store down the street is a nice convenience. Better prices can be found in town but nice for those last minute items. We will be back to CR.

Charming house

  • 4 of 5

We were 5 adults (7 during a few days) who vacationed during two weeks at Casa Oasis. This casa is ideally situated, 5 minutes from Playa Langosta and within easy walking distance to Playa Tamarindo. We decided against renting a car and never missed it. We only occasionally used a taxi (4$ or 5$US) when groceries were too heavy.

Every day, preferably in the morning, we walked to Playa Tamarindo, not only for the walk itself but to take advantage of its shops and good restaurants. In the early evening, we favoured Playa Langosta for its wide, deserted expanse and to take in its beautiful sunsets.

Casa Oasis is very charming with its open concept, cathedral ceilings, warm wooden beams and it's well-landscaped and shaded gardens. Not surprisingly, we lived mostly out of doors, breakfasting on the front terrace, dining in the rear and spending the hotter hours lounging around or in the nice cool pool.

To note: we were visited by an intruder who must have jumped over the wall and gained entrance through a partially open bathroom window. The culprit must have been interrupted, for only a small amount of money was missing. Lesson learned: we kept the window closed and always locked whatever patio door when no one was on that patio.

All this being said, we would like to add that Casa Oasis could benefit from the " loving" touch of its owner. Foremost, the hot tub was much too hot to be enjoyed and neither the "pool boy" nor any of us could control it except to shut it off, if only to save energy. Also, a thorough house cleaning and some upkeep seem required. The kitchen and bathroom floors show water damage; the sofa and curtains are dusty; and the wiring behind the TV and VCR is an unsightly web trapping dust balls. The guest house must not have been used recently as there was a broken light bulb in the ceiling socket and we mopped and dusted both the room and the bathroom before using it. Although the large master bedroom had ample closets, the other bedrooms lacked hanging facilities: a few hooks on the wall or a coat-hanger would have helped.

Despite these minor drawbacks, we spent an enjoyable stay at Casa Oasis and have warm souvenirs of the house and it's surroundings.

Finally about Prince: he/she is an amazing animal commanding respect if only because of its ability to endlessly adapt to new families. And he/she can effectively convey its needs, making it endearing even to those who are not cat people.

Owner's Response: We have just remodeled the kitchen and bathroom so the house is in even better condition. The dust is a problem during February and March from the Papagayo winds and cannot be helped as it's this way in all of Tamarindo/Langosta. I wish that I could have had the floor fixed prior to this group's rental, but there were too many back to back rentals and I didn't want to cancel reservations over a minor issue, which is how they described the floors anyway. If there are any inconveniences during your stay, then please contact the property manager as they will be dealt with in a timely fashion. And please keep in mind that petty theft is a problem throughout the communities of Tamarindo/Langosta. The house instruction sheet does state to lock up when you're not around the house as this would be the same situation that you might find in your own country as well. What I've found is that homes in Costa Rica require constant care as upgrading from a harsh climate. From a new roof to new flooring to a remodeled pool deck, I'm always upgrading something. Oh, and the jacuzzi has been fixed too. Enjoy!

By the Beach

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean except that the couches had a lot of spots on them. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook and for six of us to eat, but the Teflon on all of the pans was damaged which is a health concern. The pool was very small. The drain in the main shower was backed up and it took a couple of days to fix. The hot tub was warm, not hot, which seems to be common in Costa Rica. The cat Prince knows how to get in when the doors are closed. He really is an amazing cat. There were not a lot of bugs at this property. It was nice and in a beautiful neighborhood. There is a small store half a block away which is very convenient. The walk to the Playa Langosta beach is very easy and the beach is amazing with an inlet from the river to swim in. The beach itself is more suited to surfing due to the large waves. Tamarindo's beach, which is about a 20 minute walk had smaller waves and was fun to body surf in. The water was very warm and pleasant.

Owner's Response: Sounds like this group had a good time despite a few inconveniences. Understanding that you are in Costa Rica is important when traveling there. There are problems that occur from time to time that require attention like clogged pipes as there was recently a huge earthquake that shook things up good. The clog was worked on immediately and did get resolved and we would request that a group accommodate by using another shower as there are 3 of them in the house... I did just upgrade the cooking pots and pans situation as I purchased Cuisinart stainless steel pots and pans and a ceramic frying pan. This gives the option for use if a group does not like teflon. Teflon scratches easy, so this should solve that problem... The spots on the couch were from prior renters. This group that followed arrived early and there was not time to professionally clean the couch as it needed for their rental. The house is located in a beach community with dirt roads so the couch will get dirty from time to time. We are in the process of getting the couch lined, so it will be much easier to clean in between renters. This should resolve that problem. I can't do much about the pool as far as size is concerned, but it's meant to be a dip in cooling off pool and most renters love it - as I do when I use it... Finally, I just purchased 18 new acrylic wine and spirit glasses as well as new smaller appliances that needed upgrading like the blender, toaster, and coffee maker. I also bought a mattress topper for the queen size bed to make it a little softer for better comfort. I appreciate the feedback and am serious about making sure legitimate concerns are addressed and improvements made where necessary.

Great house in an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Oasis is a perfect place to get away. We rented the house with another couple (4 adults in total) and had plenty of room to lounge around, have fun, and have your own space. The master bedroom is great with a terrific changing/closet area. The pool is perfect when you don't feel like making the 5 minute walk to the beach and Ronnie the pool guys is SO sweet! Maria, the property manager is very helpful and attentive. One of the other people we were traveling with had their bags lost at the airport and Maria jumped right on the phone to assure that they would get to her. A few hours later and the bags were at our front door! The locations of the house is ideal, very close to Playa Langosta, which is lovely and less crowded then Tamarindo. However, if you are seeking some night life, restaurants, bars, shopping etc. Tamarindo is a short walking distance and quick bike ride. Overall, we had a terrific time at Casa Oasis, we will definitely be back soon!

P.S. Prince the cat is a pretty funny little guy. He brought crabs to the front door every morning and sun bathed all afternoon. We are generally not 'cat people' but he was a really sweet guy.

Perfect destination for surf, exploration, and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of staying at Casa Oasis for a guys surf trip. The house located on a quiet street that is within walking distance to the beach, fun surf, and a quick drive to town. The house is well-maintained, comfortable, functional, and has all the necessities one would need to either stay in to cook/bbq or use as a home base while out exploring the beautiful countryside. The jacuzzi was a great touch after a long day of surf/hiking to sooth sore muscles. Maria(property manager) was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Great place, Great trip!
