Tamarindo Studio Rental Photos and Description
Quality cabinas, surfboards and bikes. Surf lessons and guide available.

Harry's El Escondite offers 1 of 4 secluded studio-apartment style house in famous Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica and is a favorite 'hideout' for both returning surfers and first timers. The cabina is situated around a pool and garden setting on a single 1/4 acre property. El Escondite has accommodations for individuals up to a party of 3 in a cabina.

All guests get free use of surfboards and bicycles. A surf guide and lessons are also available for those new to the area or to the joys of surfing.

El Escondite is located at the end of a quiet and private dead-end road; just a short walk to the surf breaks and the attractions in downtown Tamarindo.

A cabin can sleep up to 3 people and has a kitchen, large bathroom with hot water, air-conditioning and cable TV.

El Escondite also has laundry facilities, phones and wireless Internet access.

A pool, BBQ, hammocks, and a 2nd floor sundeck with lounge chairs round out a perfect place to hangout after surfing.

In the beginning I came to Tamarindo Beach to take time off from skiing. A knee injury had forced me to leave my home in Whistler, B.C. to pursue other activities during the winter. I tried surfing while recovering here in Tamarindo and ended up preferring the waves over snow and the beach over the mountains. Over the years I've grown to love this small beach town and eventually decided to move down permanently. El Escondite means 'the Hideout' in Spanish and that was the start of Harry's hideaway.

Harry purchased this studio in 2001

Tamarindo Beach in Costa Rica has a unique combination of consistent off-shore winds for surfing and easy access to amenities and services without the need for a car but still having the feeling of a small laid back community. There are plenty of bars, restaurants, banks, shops and surf breaks; all within walking distance.

The 'El Escondite' grounds was established in 2001 and over the years has been expanded, renovated and improved to keep up with needs of clients. The cabinas are Tico style with outdoor living kept in mind yet has all modern the conveniences expected from a quality hotel. Relax and hideout at this quiet, private and secluded villa. All guests have free access to surfboards, bicycles, beach towels and bamboo mats.

For an authentic surf vacation, kicking back,and a safe central home base Harry's is the best choice. Its apparent Harry is a well connected and respected long time local and can often pass this advantage to his guests. If your into surfing and socializing harry's usually in for a few waves and a few beers at sunset. If you want privacy/quiet you can get that too. Harrys offers all the amenities of the expensive hotels in town at a fraction of the cost with a much more personalized service. Harry's is cosy, cool, clean and set up.

Harry's place rocks! We stayed in the orange cabina and it was great! We loved it, our home away from home. Highlights include, luxury pool, private patio with awesome hammock, location (quiet and chill), and Harry's great!

Each cabina was made with great care and quality. You won't be disappointed in this escondite!

Harry's place was great! My wife and I stayed in the blue room which was equipped with all of the modern commodoties you could possibly want. One of the best parts was the free use of the boards, bikes, and pool. It was also great having Harry available to answer any questions or point you in the right direction; to the beach or Noguis bar and restaurant. I highly recommend harry's place for fun in the sun. Thanks Harry for everything!

Harry's El Escondite is a quaint, rustic accomodation that is ideal for lodging in Costa Rica. It is close to the beach and stores and town. You can take the bike and be at the beach in 4 minutes or walk and be there in ten. I recommend staying here...it has everything you will need. Thanks Harry!

Harry's El Escondite is slightly off the beaten path... just what I needed. Minutes from the heart of Tamarindo and the beach, Harry's is a great place to spend hot days in a hammock listening to great music or just chill out.
Harry is very helpful in helping you get what you need and was an amazing host. Bikes and bords are also available.
I look forward to commimg back.
Thanks harry!
