Langosta surroundings: Tamarindo is the premier beach community in Costa Rica’s Northwest province – Guanacaste. Centered with a stunning one and a half mile crescent beach, Tamarindo is usually the first stop on many visitors itineraries and with good reason. It’s a real town with a dynamic international community of artists, writers, photographers, travelers, surfers, and sun-worshipers. It’s a vibrant beach community with fifty- eight restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, shops, yoga retreats, galleries, spas and a full assortment of recreational opportunities.

Tamarindo is a bustling, cosmopolitan Costa Rican town that contains a mix of Costa Ricans, Europeans and Americans. It is the perfect place to make contact with the heart and soul of Costa Rica that makes living here so worthwhile. And it’s easy to get to - just forty minutes by flight from San Jose or seventy minutes by car from the Liberia International Airport

Tamarindo beach: In recent years the village has become one of the most popular seaside destinations of the country and has experienced growth and development. Therefore, the village offers the accommodations you need to enjoy unforgettable holidays such us a domestic Airport, a variety of boutiques, restaurants and bars, as well as bakeries, supermarkets, car rentals, banks, excellent doctors and pharmacies, two Spanish schools, real states, beauty salons, gym, etc.

Due to the fact that Tamarindo Bay has some of the most tranquil currents of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and therefore considered as one of the safest beaches, it is ideal for swimming and other water sport activities. The place is excellent for kayaking, surfing - or boogie-boarding, snorkeling and diving. Sailboat and catamaran trips are also available. They offer special Sunset-Trips in which one can often enjoy spectacular and famous sunsets of this bay. The surrounding areas of the village are great for bicycling and horseback

Birds, howler monkeys, squirrels, gray iguanas, geckos, armadillos, skunks and raccoons are some of the animals that can be seen almost daily throughout the house garden.

About andrea centenaro

Several years ago we met here in this piece of paradise. We got married in 2004 and some years ago our family got bigger with the arrival of two beautiful boys.

We lived in our house since we got married until 2010 and enjoyed this beautiful stage of our life in a place which is unique in the world for its beaches, wildlife, international community that is Playa Langosta and in a house so simple and beautiful that we designed according to our taste.

andrea centenaro purchased this house in 2004

Why andrea centenaro chose Guanacaste

Now our house is available for you to enjoy it with all its positive energy.

During sunny mornings, enjoy breakfast with fresh Costa Rican coffee and the wide variety of natural juices that this country offers, watching the birds that pass in our garden or bathing in the pool.

Read a book on the upstairs terrace at sunset with the sounds of monkeys in the trees surrounding the house.

Have a tropical cocktail in the pool before a delicious dinner watching the stars.

In the warm afternoon after returning from the beach, take a refreshing splash in the pool then prepare a delicious fresh lobster BBQ while listening to good music from our stereo.

These are things we did and are part of wonderful memories that we share and suggest to make and your stay truly enjoyable, memorable and unique to the location and the facilities that the home offers.

What makes this house unique

In Tamarindo we own a spa, a women’s clothing and accessories boutique and a concierge service.

So in choosing Casa Brisa del Estero, you are not just renting a beautiful villa near a beautiful beach, but are also hiring tourism specialists who are at your disposal to help every wish become reality.

Happy holidays

Beautiful Villa in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic 2 double bed roomed villa each with own bathroom.

Own pool within its own sculptured gardens with regular visits from hummingbirds, iguanas, lizards and howler monkeys making it a unique and memorable experience.

2 weeks here was never more relaxing!

Only 5 mins taxi from main town so easy access to great facilities including some first rate restaurants.

Cannot praise enough - we will be back!

Perfect for two couples or family of four

  • 4 of 5

The house presents itself pretty much as the pictures on the VRBO site. We used Andrea to arrange some events for us. He had us work thru the individual who managed his SPA and that worked perfectly. We arranged for a full day Rainforest Canopy Tour, a snorkeling/sunset tour, a SPA day for the ladies and a golf day for the men. For each event except the SPA day, we were picked up and returned to the house and we were very happy with the tour companies they suggested. The house is very comfortable and having the pool was great on our non-beach days. WE also enjoyed the monkeys out back. They did't show up every day but when they did it was either around 6 am or 6 pm. I agree with an earlier review of the Pizza restaurant. FYI, for a $25 per person charge you can also eat at the all inclusive resort across from the pizza place. It was super buffet and a good value. We spent our beach days at the Tamarindo beach. It's about a 10 minute drive. The only thing we used our car for was to travel to Tamarindo for our beach days and evening meals. The walk to Tamarindo is about 20 minutes and very dusty. Also, it wasn't a walk we wanted to do in the dark. Best meal of the trip by far was at the Playa Langosta Beach Club. While it was pricey, the food was superb. The only problem we had was getting used to the finicky locks on the doors. It would seem that this would be a quick and inexpensive fix. Overall, I would readily suggest this property to my friends and family.

Perfect For Small Family or Group

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived and walked in the backyard to find 15 monkeys foraging in the trees, we knew the house would be perfect for us. Being a family of 3, myself, wife and 7 year old son, we had plenty of room to hang out. Trying to go beyond 4 people would probably start to get get tight.

While its apparent that the house survives in daily 90 degree heat the owners do a very nice job of maintaining the property. The beds are comfortable and the linens are a nice quality. Plenty of hot water.

In the past we've stayed both closer to Tamarindo and in Playa Langosta. We think the location of this villa is excellent for access to just about everything.

Hopefully, when you go, the pizza restaurant across the street from the all inclusive called RistoPizza is still in business. I live near New York City and this is one of the TOP 5 pizzas I have EVER had.

We stayed 5 wonderful weeks at Casa Brisas. Enjoyed every minute. And why not? We were 100 yards from the Sports Bar, 200 yards from the little grocery store and 2 blocks from the beach. The house was great. The pool (which we considered a lucky strike extra) was a must. Go for it!
