About The Owner

We are a family of 4 living in southern California. I've been a rental property owner for 15 years and a vacation rental owner for 7 years. We love to travel and explore all there is to see while on vacations.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Guanacaste

Searching for investment property we felt Costa Rica was a promising location. Having visited the Tamarindo area a few times we were very impressed with the upscale feel of Playa Langosta. The area is generally very quite and peaceful. Across the Rio San Francisco estuary (a few blocks away) you have miles of uninhabited beach to yourself.


What makes this condo unique

Being on the south side ocean facing upper floor of the complex allows for incredible ocean and sunset views. This is one of the most raved about qualities from our guests!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner


It was wonderful, thank you! The condo was great right down to the boogie boards:) The property management company was extremely helpful and much appreciated!

Fabulous View and Peace Away from the Increasing Chaos of Tamarindo but Problems

  • 3 of 5

Tamarindo has a lot of energy. More every year. In general it is positive and fun loving but is not really peaceful. Playa Langosta just around the south point is quieter and a little more upscale. The surf break there can get really good and it is generally a little larger size than the Tamarindo breaks, but not near as good as Playa Grande.

Our rental was a 6 story condo overlooking the south point and much of the breaks of Playa Langosta. No noise from Tamarindo. The condo was well appointed and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment. The view and breezes were fabulous.

We had a problem which was very inconvenient. The internet connection to the WiFi quit working after the 4th day and never returned. The WiFi signal itself was sketchy but for half of our time we had no internet connection to the Wifi despite receiving the signal. I attempted to call all of the numbers listed and left messages in spanish and english without response. That was worrisome. The guard knew nothing.

We had a 6 hour period without water. Apparently the whole building had no water for awhile. That was fairly quickly addressed.

I have come to expect some infrastructure problems in Costa Rica but the lack of response from the 'covering' personnel is worrisome. There are many condo options in Playa Langosta, I would recommend one diffferent than this one.

Owner's Response: Wow this the lowest review we have received in 9 years. Most of the 28 reviews are 5 star rating with some 4 star. I would agree with guest, at times the wifi service is spotty and could be a concern if needing fast wifi service to conduct business. We need to remember this is a 3rd world country. I had a similar wifi experience on a recent river boat cruise in Europe. I would recommend you view addition review or inquire with me for additional questions. I'm happy to help whether you rent with me or not....

Property has a great view and location!

  • 5 of 5

Property is in a great location, property was clean accessible. The internet is hit or miss and that was disclosed to us up front not surprises there. There are plenty of places to sit down and Wifi access. Overall the time we spend at the property was tremendous. After walking along the beach all day can emphasize how nice it was to come back and relax at the pool which by the afternoon is shaded. Coffee place next to the complex convenient. All in all a great relaxing trip we look forward to coming back next year.

Perfect spot for a family

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Well furnished. Highly comfortable. Can't ask for any better for a one week stay for a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The view is awesome from when you wake up to the beautiful sunset.

The beach of Tamarindo is beautiful. The access is a 5-10 minutes walk, 2 minutes if you have a car.

Beautiful ocean views in a nice, quiet complex...

  • 4 of 5

The pros: the condo is in a nice complex with an attractive pool and hot tub that we enjoyed almost every day, most of the time having it all to ourselves. The condo has almost everything you need (except food...which is shockingly expensive). The master room is spacious with a nice size bathroom. I would have opted for different sinks as the bowls take up much of the counter space but there is a shelf below the sink too. The owners provide hand, dish and body (liquid) soaps and laundry detergent and fabric softener, plus the linens and beach towels, all included in the rental fee. The kitchen is well stocked with the essentials you need to make your own meals "at home." The views from the balcony are just beautiful! There wasn't always a breeze so it was sometimes too muggy with bugs around to enjoy but other times it was absolutely perfect. All the people we met at the complex, around town, and on tours were very nice and helpful. The owners were also a pleasure to work with.

The cons: the beds in the second room do not have the foam topper that the master bed has so they aren't as comfortable for adults (headboards aren't attached to the beds). The sheets and towels have some stains (the spare king-size sheets have a tear in them), several of them just need to be replaced. The condo has a few maintenance items that need to be addressed, mostly normal wear and tear, hard water, and a humid environment. There is an issue with a window/door leaking in the master bedroom when really strong winds accompany storms. We were without water 3 times so I would definitely recommend putting water in bottles and pots to keep on hand. We only lost power once, just for 10 minutes. The roads to the condo are rough so be prepared to experience the "Costa Rican car massage." The pool wasn't always cleaned so we spent a few hours skimming the pool (had we mentioned this to the maintenance staff, I'm sure it would have been addressed). Even after resetting and rebooting the modem and wireless router, the wireless internet in the condo rarely every worked so we were often using the wireless internet from the complex instead.

Other important info: taxis into town are anywhere from $5 to $10 one way (higher fare is to go to the Auto Mercado which has the largest selection around and gluten free items). Do NOT change money at the airport! Everywhere we went accepted US dollars.

Overall, we really enjoyed our 2 week stay at this well-priced condo!

Car: not necessary

Playa Langosta lies approximately 3/4 mile south of Tamarindo. On the map see area to left of Tamarindo. It's really just like a large cul-de-sac with a street in between. Beach access is 1/2 block down the street and 75 yds through a national park. Langosta beach main swimming and surfing area is a 6 to 8 minute walk down the beach. This is where the San Francisco estuary meets the pacific. The Naxos Resort is next to the Pennisula condo's on the map if viewed through a closer zoom.

Other Activities: bogey boarding, zip lining

Golf: Hacienda Pinilla, 20 mins drive south towards Playa Avellanas. This is an 18 hole course with most holes on or near the Pacific ocean.
