Overview

Tambor House Rental Photos and Description

This beautiful 3 bedroom Spanish style bungalow is nestled in a little subdivision that backs onto a small river. This 948sq.ft home features an open floor plan with the living room, dinette and kitchen all flowing together. In the front, a spacious veranda finished in ceramic tile is great for sitting and enjoying the scenery. Out the back door, stepping stones lead to a circular patio with firepit in the center, all shaded by a mango tree. Just 2 minutes outside the town of Paquera, this area is a haven for birds and wildlife. Howler monkeys and white faced monkeys frequent the property and over 150 species of birds, including parrots, hummingbirds and cuckoos visit regularly. Relatively untouched by development, this region is still quite typical of Costa Rican life prior to the tourist boom. Oxcarts are used to haul material and horses are not uncommon. Just two minutes up the road however the new medical center, banks, supermarkets, and restaurants are all easily accessible. Just ten minutes away is Playa Organos, a great beach where they have night kayak plankton bio luminescence kayak tours!

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

About Michael Phelan

I live in Edmonton, Alberta Canada but I love this wonderful part of Costa Rica. My daughter, son in law, and my grandson live in the capital San Jose, so Costa Rica is really my second home. Come down, enjoy the house, and this beautiful area and the great people of Costa Rica.

Michael Phelan purchased this house in 2012

Why Michael Phelan chose Tambor

We looked long and hard and finally settled here because of the great blend of nature and close proximity to all of the services in the town.

What makes this house unique

Whether you are walking to the convenience store 100 yards from the house, or driving the winding roads down to the beach, you know you are truly in a different country and not an all inclusive that is identical to every other all inclusive the world over. Its fun to 'explore' and bit. It is also very safe in this area. It is quite quiet and the local people are very friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the house near Paquera for a week in February. It was beautiful. The weather was around 30C degrees and wonderfully sunny. The small town of Paquera is nestled on the Nicoya Peninsula and it is a quaint little town off the beaten path. It is a short drive from beaches, nature reserves, golfing and sport fishing.(never had an Iguana attack my golf ball before). The house is brand new and accommodated us, a family of four, very comfortably. We enjoyed having enough room to relax after a long day of exploring. We were enthralled by the nature walks that we took down the road outside the house, there being a boisterous group of howler monkeys in the neighborhood. It was the trip of a lifetime and we would gladly return!

Birders Paradise

“A Birders Paradise”

We went for the Birds and it was HEAVEN. Even if you aren't a big Birder, you can't help but be in awe of them all around you in the Paquera area. The Monkeys are great too. Beautiful beaches just minutes away. Amazing photo opportunities for anyone who is camera happy. :)

Very friendly locals, they couldn't have been more helpful. It was a very relaxing stay. The house is modern, spotlessly clean and well located to the stores and restaurants. I highly recommend this house and vacation spot to anyone.

Car: recommended

This laid back area of Costa Rica is like life may have been almost a hundred years ago. Not many tourists and a very 'typical' Costa Rican feel to the pace of life. Oxcarts are still used regularly to haul goods and horses are not uncommon. Not much English spoken in the area, which adds to the cultural experience. Paquera and the lower Nicoya Peninsula have not yet been overly developed, even though two of the best beaches in the country, Santa Teresa and Montezuma are here. Curu Biological Reserve is just 10 minutes from the house. From there, take the 10 minute boat ride over to Isla Tortuga for the best diving and snorkeling on the peninsula! The closest beach is Playa Organos. It is a beautiful 2 kilometer long stretch with a fair sized river on one end that flows into the pacific. An absolute must is the night kayak plankton bio luminescence tour! It is in the Playa Organos area and can be booked through Bahia Rica Tours. Isla Tortuga can be seen from Playa Organos with a sharp eye or binoculars. A little further down the coast, the busier tourist towns of Montezuma and Santa Teresa are always lively.

Notes:
Henry and Hilda, my neighbors will direct you to any and all other services or activities you are interested in. The best restaurant in Paquera is at the Hotel Ginana; great food and even prices! For seafood you have to hit 'Las Vegas'. Their seafood combo has a ton of lobster, crab, shrimp, clams, etc. all for $20!!! Taxistas are plentiful so don't worry if you didn't rent a vehicle. Playa Organos is our favorite beach, about 10 minutes away. It is quiet, mainly just a few locals, but if you want something livelier, go down the coast a bit to Montezuma and Santa Teresa. Much more tourists and here is where the night life is!
