Comparison with other condos: There is a wide variety of condos available in the Tamarindo area. If you look at the website for the leading real estate agencies in town, such as Century 21 and ReMax, you will find that condos can be purchased for less than $100,000 or more than $500,000. When renting condos on the internet, you want to make sure that you get the location and quality that you want.
This condo is the top-of-the-line. It has the best beachfront location and luxury furnishings. Other condos are across the street or several blocks from the beach. This is right on the beach. You hear the waves from the condo.
Location within the building: Our condo is on the second floor, which gives a better view of the ocean and more privacy than ground floor units. It is the second floor on the ocean side, but the first floor on the parking lot side, so there are no flights of stairs for carrying suitcases or groceries. Our patio is positioned both west and north to take advantage of the best view of the beach, ocean and sunsets.
Dave, thanks for sharing your rental with us. It was perfect for 2 couples, close enough to walk to the beach and Tamarindo. My husband really appreciated the boogie boards that you provide. Having a washing machine was perfect since we were on our second week in CR. We all appreciated the fully equipped kitchen, big showers and the outdoor patio facing the beach. It was so nice to be able to jump in to the refreshing pool when we needed a cool off but didn't want to walk down to the beach. The management company was great with storing our luggage until check in time, tour set ups, arranging to pick up family at the airport and allowing a late check out. Thanks again, having a great place to stay made this trip relaxing and memorable.
We stayed at this condo for 10 luxurious days in November 2015. The condo has 2 bedrooms, 2-1/2 baths, with a beautiful open floor plan. It is very beautifully decorated, well cared for, and has all the linens, cooking utensils, etc. that you need. You'll want to stop for groceries at the AutoMercado outside Tamarindo, as that is where you'll get the best prices on groceries. There are a few smaller places nearby for smaller purchases. The A/C works great. Having a washer & dryer in the condo was a big plus, so you don't have to pack so many clothes and to get that "sea smell" out of your swimming suits & other beach gear. The pool is great, and a welcome respite from the afternoon heat. Our favorite thing to do was to just sit on the patio and enjoy the sounds of the surf and the ocean views. We also enjoyed long walks on the beach. There are lots of great restaurants in the Langosta and Tamarindo areas, so bring your appetite!! There are also lots of fun activities to do in the area, including snorkeling, scuba, ziplining, wildlife tours, and more. The property management people are great, and will schedule all the trips you want. They will even arrange for you to be picked up right at the condo. This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and we're so glad we did at this condo....really made it a memorable trip!! Pure Vida!
My wife and I have spent a week or more in this apartment in five of the last six years. Can't say enough good about it. It's location outside of central Tamarindo is tranquil but is only five minutes drive from the town's restaurants and shopping. It is beautifully furnished and has a completely equipped kitchen. We love to sit on the covered patio with a glass of wine and watch the sunset. The building is right on the beach (which is never crowded) and has an ocean view. The condo building has beautiful pool next to it. I should add the the building has good 24/7 security and gated parking. The local management company has responded promptly to the few small problems we've had. We expect to return in 2016.
We spent 2 weeks in Dave's condo in July 2012. WE LOVED IT! What a beautiful, modern, spacious condo with great amenities. The unit had wifi, a US phone, local phone as well as being furnished with all the necessities of a family coming from the US. Dave put together a list of recommended activities and restaurants that were used daily and much appreciated. Beautiful sunsets daily from the balcony, pool or down on the beach!
This condo is just as described...very very pretty, well appointed, georgous patio with wonderful views. It is in a beautiful area, and not too far from the town. Having the phone to US and WIFI were wonderful amenities, as was the beach chair, towels, etc. The condo was spotless, well maintained. Dave the owner was wonderful in providing information on the area for dining, sightseeing, etc., along with very helpful local tips. We enjoyed the beachfront restaurants in town, never had a bad meal! We had a great week and are looking forward to returning next year. I highly recommend this property!!!
The condo is the perfect place to come back to after a long day of excursions or a beach day. The views were incredible and the pool is just the right temperature for relaxing. Getting to and from the town is not a problem if you don't have a car. If you don't want to walk, a taxi is always available for about $5.
Overall the clean, cool space to retreat from the steamy Costa Rican weather. The condo staff were very friendly and always willing to help out. We had a great time!
