Why Tamarindo?: Central to so many things (Tours, Restaurants, Groceries, Beaches)

This is the town in the Pacific North West of Costa Rica for being able to find and plan activities. Other coastal towns in the area don't have nearly as much to offer in the way of activities, restaurants, etc. Tamarindo is one of the top tourist destinations in the country. It is large enough to keep families, surfers, nightlife seekers, all happy.

About Laurie & Larry

Our goal is to do a good job exploring this great world of our in the time we have here.

We are open to trading time at our properties during the off peak seasons. All our properties are fantastic to visit year around.

Laurie & Larry purchased this condo in 2006

Why Laurie & Larry chose Guanacaste

Why book our condo

Very central downtown Tamarindo location (restaurants, groceries, shopping, tours), immediately across from the beach

Once you arrive you do not need access to a your own vehicle as the condo is so central to everything

You get a full kitchen, complete with microwave, oven, fridge, dishwasher, blender and regular dishes, utensils, etc.

2 bathrooms in the condo

Air Conditioning

Internet access (both a private wi-fi connection and a shared condo complex Internet connection that allows for some redundancy.)

In condo washer/dryer

Large (42”) TV – with Xbox/DVDs

Access to a large on site swimming pool, which the condo overlooks

Beach/Pool Towels

Elevator to our 2nd storey condo

On site property management

On site cleaning staff that cleans the condo approximately every 3 days (daily service is possible for extra money - to be worked out with property manager directly).

Built & managed to North American type standards so it is very unlikely that some type of Costa Rican critter will be found in the condo, unlike some of the less expensive places around town where it is not unusual to find cockroaches, ants, spiders, crabs, and possibly even snakes living with you in your accommodations.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Paypal as well of the bank wired funds as payment methods

Guide books for the area, some pool toys for children, pool towels, a safe in the room that will fit most laptops

A number of major things you don’t get at most other places, especially at the price we quoted you.

There is a king size bed, and 2 queen size beds in the condo. The king bed is in the master bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom, another queen size bed in the 2nd bedroom. One of the beds is a pull out couch in the main floor family room.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this property because we can walk to everything. Including our favorite evening activity of walking from our condo to the beach to see the sunset, or just enjoying it from our balcony.

Larry's favorite daytime activity is kayaking in the estuary. Laurie's is biking around town.

Our condo is also wider than some of the other condos within Sunrise so it made it easier to buy larger furniture and to allow for a sofa bed in our family room.

Sunrise, Sunset & The Beach

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Sunrise #6. Really enjoyed the location - the beach just across the street, the swimming pool, internet, well equipped kitchen - a perfect home away from home. Enjoyed morning coffee on the patio overlooking the pool, listening to the howler monkeys and the sunsets in the evening. Very well located - close to grocery stores, restaurants and the beach. Staff were very helpful. Many tours of the area can be arranged. Condo is spacious, comfortable and secure. We look forward to a return trip. Info on "What to Pack" really helped plan our trip and the weather was perfect.

a magical vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

This condo is an absolute gem of a vacation destination. It is the absolute closest you can get to the beach without actually sleeping ON the beach. The condo had all the amenities you could need, is close to great restaurants and shops as well as being just a short jaunt to the supermarket. The staff were extremely helpful and the owners communicated with us throughout the week to ensure our satisfaction. I would highly recommend this condo to my friends and family and I already have !

We really enjoyed it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Tamarindo. We spent 5 nights in the condo, and we really enjoyed it.

Larry and Laurie were very professionnal, answering questions and explain us all the rental details. Once we got there, it was very easy, and the condo was very clean.

It is perfectly centrally located, very very close to the beach. We really enjoyed the balcony, the view on the pool, and the pool itself! There is 2 large bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, perfect for 2 couples searching for privacy.

We had an amazing time in Costa Rica!! Larry and Laurie were a pleasure to deal with, answering every question we had. The condo is beautiful and had everything you could ever want while on vacation - I really appreciated the blender!! Very roomy and clean. It is just steps away from stores, restaurants, surf shops and of course, the beach. It was also a very safe place to be.

This was our first time in Costa Rica, but certainly not our last!! We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

A great location in the heart of Tamarindo. Close to shopping, restaurants, tour guides and right across the street from the beach.

The condo was great, both the unit itself and the grounds. We loved sitting on the balcony in the mornings having a leisurely breakfast and overlooking the pool. The owners and the staff in Tamarindo were very helpful.

It is a great place if you just want to go and relax. But also a great place to explore and take an adventure. There is all kinds of wild life to see, from sea urchins, star fish, sand dollars, crabs, all kinds of birds, lizards, monkeys, all within walking distance of the cono. And even more to see if you take one of the many tours offered.

When we got back home I couldn't wait to show off my pictures and tell eveyone what a great time we had. I have recommended the place to family and friends and can't wait to go back myself.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. Costa Rica is a lot more natural than North America. The beaches in Costa Rica are like they were in Canada/USA a couple hundred years ago where you can still see a crab, or other wild life at the beach.

Wonderful Costa Rica Condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with 2 other girlfriends at The Sunrise Condominiums for a week. It was spacious and clean with a large terrace, and in the perfect location – right across the road from the beach. It was so convenient we didn't have to worry about lugging a day's worth of stuff every time we went to the beach. We could easily return for lunch or to pick up anything we forgot. The pool was clean, the staff friendly and having security was nice. We took a number of tours while there, all arranged through the property manager. The condo was close to all amenities and we had dinner out a few times within close walking distance. Tamarindo is a lovely town with friendly people, most of whom speak English. If you like surfing or want to learn, it's the perfect place.

Owner's Response: We love the location for the exact same reasons. In fact, we don't rent a car when we stay at the property unless we go on a major supply run. We almost bought at a more remote beach about 20 minutes away but we had trouble booking tours, getting a taxi, finding restaurants within walking distance, from that other beach. The town of Tamarindo had the best selection of amenities in the area by far for a beach town. Our condo complex is built as close to the beach as it is legally possible to build since about the mid-1970's.
