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.
The condo was everything we expected, the view and sound of the surf was great and it was a very short walk from the condo. The AC worked great and RMS was very helpful. We defiantly recommend this unit.
This condo is an ideal location -- close to SO MANY great restaurants yet away from the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo. Langosta Beach is almost your private beach where you can enjoy good size waves and watching the surfers enjoy themselves. The pool is great for cooling down at the end of a long day and a great spot to enjoy Tamarindo's amazing sunsets. During our week-long stay we enjoyed a catamaran/snorkeling trip aboard the Marlin del Rey, zip lining at Pura Aventura, surfing lessons on Tamarindo Beach and a trip to Rincon de la Vieja national park for viewing monkeys (spider, white faced and howler), volcano fumaroles and bubbling mud baths. This was our second time in Costa Rica and it never disappoints. The condo is well equipped, extremely clean and so comfortable. Just one word of caution...remember to remain vigilant. The condo on the first floor was broken into while the occupants slept and robbers stole $5K worth of electronics. This unit is on the second floor and much more difficult to access from the outside.
This place came as advertised and more. The place was exceptionally clean, very spacious, had all of the things you would ever need, and was the perfect place for our family of four. The gardener kept the place looking great and the pool was a good size. It was also quite private as often we were the only ones using the pool. The beach is about 2 minutes away; although you can't really swim in the ocean right in front of the condo you can walk about 5 minutes south along the beach and find a nice swimming area. The outdoor balcony is huge and is great for relaxing and getting some cover from the sun if you wish, while still being outside. The host was very responsive and provides lots of information to aid in your stay. The condo is about a 15 minute walk to Tamarindo which offered a great getaway from the busyness while still be close enough to the action. We would definitely go back to this place again.
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.
Horizontes del Mar condo has the best beach side location in Playa Lagosta, which is the most upscale residential area of Tamarindo. Walk for miles along the beautiful beach. The Barcelo Resort and the entrance to Langosta Estuary, a popular area for surfing & swimming are 50 yards (45m) away, with warm water year-round. Walk to fine international cuisine at Taboo Restaurant 1 block away or at the Langosta Bistro or Cala Luna Resort 2 blocks away. Tamarindo, a 10 minute walk or a short drive, is the most developed beach town on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, with an international population & over 50 restaurants, shops, galleries, & many services.
There are many activities in the area, featuring ecotourism, which you can do on your own or with expert guide services that will pick you up and escort you. We can make recommendations & arrangements.
