My wife and I live in Arizona, USA, and try to visit Costa Rica as often as we can. I operate a Daily Photo website for Tamarindo and Costa Rica on which I post a new photo and information about Costa Rica every day.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2007
My wife and I have travelled to more than 50 countries. We fell in love with Costa Rica and Tamarindo so much while vacationing at the Tamarindo Diria Resort that we bought a condo in a new building being built on the grounds of the Tamarindo Diria Resort. The location is ideal, right in the middle of Tamarindo, with easy access to the best part of the beach and dozens of restaurants and shops nearby. The condo is set back from the street so that it is quiet even though it is in the middle of Tamarindo. Guests enjoy access to the amenities of the Tamarindo Diria resort, and the grounds are gated and guarded.
We chose to buy in this location because my wife is a "foodie" who enjoys a variety of fine dining. Tamarindo has more than 50 restaurants. Even though they are casual and tropical/open air in decor, the cuisine is international, with many of the chefs coming from Europe. We prefer the variety of the restaurants in Tamarindo to a master-planned resort community, where guests would feel confined to dining in a resort dining room. An article in Forbes Magazine in 2008 quite properly described Tamarindo as Costa Rica's "most popular beach resort."
Our condo is unique because it has the best location in the heart of Tamarindo and is more luxurious than the other condos in the area. Our condo is in the newest building on the grounds of the largest resort in town. The condos at the Diria are the only condos in the main part of Tamarindo that are part of a resort with beachfront access, and the Diria Resort has the largest beachfront access and a perfect location in the middle of Tamarindo beach.
The beach is about 100 yards from the condo and is an easy walk past the large swimming pool, down a walkway, then through the hotel lobby and the resort's beachfront pool to the wide, gently sloping beach that is perfect for swimming and surfing.
Our unit is unique because of its modern design, luxurious features, and it is positioned to take advantage of the views of the ocean, beach and sunsets.
There is a wide variety of condos in Tamarindo, ranging in price from less than $100,000 to more than a half million U.S. dollars. This condo is at the top of the market. When renting a condo over the internet you want to sure that you will get the amenities and value that you want and will not be disappointed with a budget unit. This is a luxury condo.
Spent an excellent four days at Dave's condo with the family in late November, 2013.
It is a clean, spacious, well-appointed two bedroom condo on the fourth floor of the 7-stories Matapalo condo within the Tamarindo Diria Resort complex. The 100+ sq.ft. balcony looks down to the family pool and over the treetops of the compound and out towards the ocean. It has a patio table and chair set which I spent hours just enjoying the cool breeze and chilling. My mother also loved sitting there and chat about the latest family stuff.
The master bedroom is spacious and looks out to the ocean. The ensuite bathroom is huge. The secondary bedroom is at the back and good for sleeping. The bed is a little "bare" but still comfortable so no complaints there whatsoever.
We made good use of the kitchen for simple breakfasts. The coffee machine (my lifesaver in morning) works well, and the blender was put to good use for making ice-cold pina colada's!
The necessities of modern life - TV's, internet connection (outstanding speeds) and telephone all worked well.
The location of the condo was central in Tamarindo. Being a small town, it's walking distance to almost every place one would want to go - good restaurants, small supermarket, and all the in-town surf shops.
Dave the owner was excellent in communicating with me on request for more info, signing the lease agreement and so on.
If I ever make a return trip to Tamarindo, this would be my absolute first choice.
Planning our family trip to Costa Rica, I wasn't sure exactly where to stay. Tamarindo is a perfect little town with enough activities to do nearby, but still enjoy a relaxing vacation. You definitely don't need a car, either with everything very nearby. There is even a small grocery around the corner. This condo was in an amazing resort, so we had the best of both a condo and a hotel. You can run a tab at the hotel to enjoy all the bars and restaurants, without having to pay all the time. The condo was very clean. The kitchen was amazingly stocked. The owner was helpful in providing suggestions and having the management company pick us up from the hotel. The pool is fantastic and with the lush gardens surrounding it, you can even be in the shade while in the pool. I was worried about having to cross the street to the beach. However, it is really a short walk and there is a large speed hump for the crosswalk with a guard to stop the traffic if needed. It is a very secure resort as well. It was an excellent choice I would reccommend to anyone, you won't be disappointed!
The condo was so much nicer than I expected. It is a five minute walk through the pool courtyard, across the street, then through the Diria Hotel lobby and pool area to get to the beach. The beach is great for kids, slopes out very gently, there are waves, but they break far out and come in gently. My 2 and 4 year old could play in the water. The beach is very large. Condo property feels secure, has gated entrance. We shopped at the Automercado for groceries. The condo was well stocked and so nice. Great washer/dryer. View from balcony is of the ocean. There were beach towels, cooler, boogie board and chairs to use. This is the nicest condo we have stayed at and have used homeaway/vrbo mant times. Dave was great to work with and very helpful, provided directions/recommendations for the area. Would love to come back to see the other things we didn't have time to see. Recommend Monteverde (cloud forest-4 hour drive), Rincon de la Vieja (volcano/yellowstone-like-2.25 h drive) and do the estuary tour. We booked on the beach, saw howler monkeys, alligators, birds! Diria has large pool with sloping sides. Lots of chairs, didn't use it, went to the beach as it was so nice. Friendly staff.
Rent a 4 wheel drive if you plan to travel to volcanoes! Very bumpy roads, with potholes and very large gravel. Loved it!!!
First time in Costa Rica and 1st time using VRBO. Both great experiences! This was a beautiful condo that looks EXACTLY as depicted in the photos! In a great location right in the center of Tamarindo which has a gorgeous beach and loads of terrific restaurants! Loved having the full kitchen so we had the choice to eat in or out and the owner even provided a cooler that we were able to bring our Margaritas and lunch poolside. The pool at the condos was spectacular and the chaise lounges were plentiful. Even has a pool bar for anyone interested in purchasing a drink or food!
Took an all day trip to Rincon de Vieja booked through Xplore Costa Rica which has good reviews on Tripadvisor and located right in town. Fun, full day of horseback riding, waterslide, mud baths, hot springs and zip lining with a great buffet lunch!
Would love to go back someday and stay near the rainforest/cloudforest in order to see more of this beautiful country!
Would definitely recommend this condo to anyone staying in Tamarindo! Thank you Dave & Julie!
Great location and view, super security. Free long distance calls and internet.
We had an amazing time while staying in Tamarindo, this condo made it so easy to get anywhere, it's centrally located. The condo is decked out with everything you will need and has a relaxing feel to it, so nice to come back too after the beach, dinner, pool, etc. The views are nice and the beds are comfortable. Plenty of room for a family. The comlex offers awesome amenities, we loved our stay here!
The condo is located on the grounds of the Tamarindo Diria Resort, which is located on the beach front in the center of Tamarindo. The condo has the best beach front access of any condo in Tamarindo. It is a short walk through the grounds of the resort to the private beach front access to the best part of Tamarindo's famed beach. There are restaurants and shops on the grounds of the Diria Resort, which is also located in the heart of the shopping and restaurant district of Tamarindo. ...
