About the property

Condominium - 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 2.5 Baths - (Sleeps 4-6)

Our beautiful tropical paradise is located in 'la buena vida condominiums', a just completed luxury condominium project located on Calle Guanacaste, one of the two main streets in Tamarindo, just a short 5 minute walk past shops and restaurants to the beach. The unit is located in the rear of the complex away from the street, with its own back door access to the pool and BBQ area. The unit abuts a public 'greenway', a wooded area frequented by howler monkeys and many species of tropical birds, including parrots and parakeets.

Playa Tamarindo is one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches, and is great for kids and adults alike with excellent boogie-boarding and learn to surf lessons (and great shelling!) with 3 grocery stores right nearby, you can cook for yourself in our fully equipped kitchen (or on the outdoor gas grill), or visit any of over a dozen fine restaurants within waking distance of the condo. With easy and reliable shuttle service from Liberia Airport, and banks, post office, shops, etc. right nearby, it is not even necessary to rent a car to experience Tamarindo. Excursions are available to nearby villa Baula National Park or as far away as Monteverde Cloud Forest or Arenal Volcano.

We are sure you will enjoy our bright and spacious condo overlooking the pool, secure in our quiet, gated complex with 24 hour guard. and everything is brand new!

Guestbook comments from the owner

hola from the seattleites. we are greatful for you letting us stay in your beautiful and very tastefully decorated condo. we found the place to be very well located and equiped with all the modern conveniences while still having a local flair in the decor. we also loved using the pool. cynthia was very helpful making sure we were settled in- calixto also. things we loved doing in tamarindo: surfing (look for henry at the playa), zip lining, nighttime music at club pacifico, and the venezuelan food shack in the food court. we will definately recommend this place to everyone back home.

What a wonderful 10 days in Costa Rica! The condo itself is clean, spacious & exceeds expectations. There are 9 units and this condominium has the best location with a 2nd floor deck overlooking the courtyard and pool. Perfect walking score, to the ocean, restaurants (food is fantastic!), shops & all of Tamarindo's amenities. If this sounds like it was written by a real estate broker, it is! The neighbors are wonderful, too, gracious, welcoming & helpful.

Thank you to Ray & Karen for sharing their home with others to enjoy the beauty of Tamarindo, Cost Rica!

excellent unit and location

  • 5 of 5

Ray was gracious enough to let me stay in his unit for two and a half months and I had a wonderful time being there. His condo is very clean and spacious and is within a short walking distance to the beach, market, restaurants and shops. The property management team at Coastal properties is excellent. They are helpful and friendly and make you feel very welcome. I cannot say enough about Brian, Sky and the rest of the management team. Was extremely satisfied with every aspect of renting this beautiful condo. Thanks Ray. I will return with pleasure and looking forward to once again being in Tamarindo.

Amazing time at La Buena Vida Condominiums

  • 5 of 5

Condo: Amazing condo! GREAT location, clean and cozy, plenty of room, had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable, the showers had great water pressure and hot hot water, air conditioning in each room so you could adjust temperature to your liking. Everything is within walking distance: grocery store 3 minute walk, beach 6 minute walk, bars and restaurants all in between. The balcony over looks the pool and is perfect for having breakfast and morning coffee out on. If you're outside early enough you can hear howler monkeys. Pool is clean and refreshing and perfect any time of the day. If you ever need any help Calixto (the handyman) is always around or just contact Hidden Coast Reality. The condo surpassed our expectations.

Tamarindo: Small town with plenty to offer. Plenty of places to eat, but no inexpensive sodas. Had an amazing dinner at The Lazy Wave. The restaurant is open air so go on a cool or comfortable evening. Super cool vibe and AMAZING food. We ordered (to split b/w two ppl) sting ray, goat cheese w/ pesto, lobster soup, tuna tar tar, pitcher of sangria, and two cocktails for $100. Stores are a little overpriced so it's better to go to the market in San Jose if you have the time, but if that's not an option there are plenty of stores to pick from. Mostly spent my time surfing. Got lessons from Costa Rica Surf Club for $35. Included a 2 hour lesson with an instructor in the water and a 2 hr rental the next day by yourself. Daily 2 hr rentals here were $8.

Thanks again for everything Ray. We had an amazing time =)

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous condo is very comfortable, clean,

and roomy, with a nice little balcony for morning

coffee and relaxation after the activities of the day.

The condo is situated at the back of the small

complex, so it is quiet, secure, and private. The

kitchen is well-appointed and the bathrooms are

spotless. The short walk to lovely Playa Tamarindo

is easy and pleasant, with many interesting shops

and restaurants on the way.

I can hardly wait for our next visit in January 2010!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in January 2008. Planning to go again January 2010. Owners were very helpful with information about the area and things to do. Plenty of room in the condo for 4-6 and the 2 bedrooms each have their own bathrooms. Short walk to a long, beautiful beach. Fresh OJ to purchase on the way to the beach and a fresh fruit smoothie to purchase for the walk back!
