Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

House is really nice and comfortable. We had a great time there and it has everything needed to spend a good time among friends. Great host, house is close to Langosta beach, close to Tamarindo beach and location makes it easy to travel around other places in Guanacaste. Fully recommended for a sweet vacation.

Unforgettable Spring break

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! It is just a 30 second walk away from the gorgeous beach and the town provides plenty of places to plan excursions or eat the local food. The beds were very comfortable and the AC was so nice to have in the hot weather. I am definitely coming back!

Vacationing In Langosta Beach, Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love to fish and surround ourselves with outdoor pleasures. This area provides an array of opportunities for exactly that. Just a few minutes walk to the Pacific Ocean, the location of the property lends a perfect hub to explore the area rich in clear blue waters, an abundance of foliage and tree climbing wild life. The property owners are friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable of the area. They assisted us with our daily adventure decisions which was incredibly helpful. We did offshore fishing, horseback riding with mountain zip lining, cliff jumping, beach exploring and Catamaran sailing with snorkeling. All of those trips were set up by the owners. We set up sitting by the pool with our favorite beverage all by ourselves! We really enjoyed fishing locally on foot which provided a tasty lunch! We stayed in the 2-2 which was plenty roomy and actually is set up to accommodate eight or more. The room was well stocked and had a gas stove(which was nice), movies provided on DVD, and the wifi signal was strong. Oh, and their dog Roxy is a gem. We met a few locals and friends of the property owners and we very much enjoyed everyone. There is a small grocery store just a minutes walk from the properties real name, "Casa Neptuno" and a deli a few dozen steps further. There's a sports bar across the street that was very welcoming and had plenty of games and food for all ages. The area has multiple restaurants that offer great local fare or traditional cuisine. La Baula has great thin crust pizza that we all wish we could make at home. Most restaurants have open air seating and the on beach seating looks West at the setting sun. Perfect...It was the quiet of Playa Langosta and the colorful, beachy surf town of Tamarindo that was our home away from home, but that was surrounded by the beautiful country of Costa Rica. Enjoy it as we did and you will be compelled to write a similar review.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay, especially considering we went blind into this so to speak, from the time we arrived until we left, the owners and their attendant were awesome and made sure that we were well taken care of ! great waves a short walk away , what more could you ask for when coming from California than a warm water uncrowded right point. Acommodations were excellent , comfortable beds, internet, etc and nice and clean. we would definitely come back ! and if you are there check out the ziplining,the property is amazing in itself and the crew they have working there is top notch.

Awesome Spring Break at Langosta Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Langosta Beach House. When we arrived everything was in tip-top shape. Clean linens, cool house, and the beds were ready to be jumped into. The next morning we awoke to beautiful sunshine and a clear pool to swim in. We were there during Holy Week and Tamarindo was very crowded and congested so it was nice to be tucked away back at Langosta Beach and away from the crowds. As always, A.M. was a fabulous host and did some fine grilling and excursions for us. I highly recommend this place!
