Tamarindo Condo Rental Photos and Description
Accommodates 6 guests very nicely, with two bedrooms and a comfortable sofa-bed.
Casa Papaya is located in a quiet, safe, and low-density residential neighborhood of oceanfront estates and elegant condos. There’s green space on three sides of the condo, providing a home to howler monkeys, tropical birds, and iguanas. On the fourth side, across a seldom-traveled road, is a canopied park with a winding path to the white-sand beach of the Pacific Ocean, only 100 yards from the condo. Just follow the sound of the surf…
This is a luxurious residence in every respect. The furnishings and décor are tasteful and of high quality. The Venetian-stucco walls, teak moldings and doors, cast stone floors, and ceilings planked in tropical hardwoods combine to fashion a wonderfully warm and welcoming vacation home.
Our building, La Esquina, is an intimate, 10-unit complex, showcasing Moroccan architecture, Mediterranean stucco, and columns, arches, tile, stonework, and carved teak beams throughout. The gardens are professionally landscaped and maintained and are alive with tropical flowers, plants, and trees. A beautiful, mature banyan tree accents the pool and provides generous shade.
The guests at La Esquina are typically families with children (of all ages) or adult couples. We work hard to keep our neighborhood and our condo free from the chaotic din that often afflicts rentals in nearby Tamarindo. To each his own, but La Esquina caters to guests who want to spend a relaxing vacation without having to deal with a live band and an all-night keg party next door.
Casa Papaya’s kitchen is a chef's delight. It features granite countertops, hardwood cabinets with pebble-glass doors, modern stainless-steel appliances, a 3-stage water filter, a garbage disposal, a very full complement of countertop electric appliances, and complete sets of matching kitchenware, cutlery, serving ware, glassware, silverware, and dining ware.
We live here much of the year, so we maintain the condo, and especially the kitchen, as thoughtfully and thoroughly as we maintain our U.S. home.
The pool is just 15’ from the private, shaded porch.
The rooftop patio provides 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean and the green hills of Costa Rica. It's the perfect place for sunbathing, napping, watching sunsets, and star-gazing. And yes, you can actually see the legendary Southern Cross constellation from the rooftop!
The entire complex, including the large parking area, is walled, gated, and guarded 24/7.
Casa Papaya has its own wireless, high-speed Internet. No shared bandwidth.
The washer and dryer in the condo are for the sole use of Casa Papaya's guests.
You'll find nothing but fresh, cool air, thanks to Casa Papaya's central a/c and eight ceiling fans. Casa Papaya has been strictly no-smoking from day one, so the air is clean and pure.
The condo is located only one mile from the renowned shopping and restaurants of Tamarindo, a town that is described by.residents as having the widest selection of restaurants in Costa Rica, other than in the capital itself.
The published rental rates include everything--maid service, taxes, cleaning costs, utilities, etc. No hidden charges!

Here we are enjoying ourselves in a tidal pool on our beach, Playa Langosta. I'm a retired teacher and a part-time college professor. My wife recently retired from the school system and now grows and sells tropical plants.
We're proud of our Costa Rican home, and because we live there much of the year, our guests can be assured of enjoying a well maintained and fully equipped vacation residence.
Our condo offers our guests the best of both worlds. We're located in a quiet, safe, residential neighborhood, while just one mile away is the alluring, festive tumult of the town of Tamarindo. Tamarindo is fascinating fun, lined with restaurants, stores, surf shops, clubs, and street-vendors. It offers amenities such as realtors, several banks, medical and dental services, attorneys, and a post office.
Our location gives us the best of both worlds: the quiet tranquility of Playa Langosta but with close access to all the good things Tamarindo offers.
