About The Owner

I am an orthopedic surgeon from So Cal who has traveled and surfed in Costa Rica for years. I will retire there someday, but in the meantime, will rent out my tropical oasis for vacationers to enjoy. I hope to add onto the home in the future - maybe 2 more levels. This home has great potential.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Guanacaste

I have been traveling to Tamarindo for many years and always wanted to buy a home in the area. I love Costa Rica and Tamarindo is the best area to visit. Playa Langosta is a beautiful beach that is located near the Tamarindo area. It's a great place to own property.

What makes this house unique

The property offers a close beach proximity and privacy. It is close to the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo, but retains tranquility. The house is the perfect place for a family vacation. There is a huge living room with kitchen and living room islands that is great for entertaining small crowds. There is also a wine refrigerator. The home interior is exquisite and the exterior is very functional with a beautiful tropical garden and pool/jacuzzi.

A true Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Casa Oasis. We arrived a little later than planned after driving from Arenal/La Fortuna, and Maria was able to get a guard from another house to let us in. We didn't really get a tour of the house/facilities, but the writeup Peter sent prior was extremely thorough, so we got the gist fairly quickly, which more than enough space for our group of 6... + Prince the cat who lives at the house. The house itself was well decorated, extremely spacious, and amazingly comfortable for all of us. The pool was great (we did not use the hot tub since we were more than comfy with the pool). The house is just a short walk to the beach, to Matty's, and the pizza place (the name escapes me at the moment), a yummy tapas place (Bokas), and a small grocery store. It is close to Tamarindo (we didn't really want the hustle and bustle), and very close the the Langosta Beach Club and Revive Wellness center which is where my daughter and I spent time while the boys went to look for more monkeys in the mangroves. They were also fascinated by the gecko's and iguanas and birds we could see from our lovely oasis - pool area surrounded by palm trees, and enjoyed lounging midday/late afternoon in the shade and the pool. It was also only short jaunt to Lola's/Playa Avellanas where we went to watch the sunset. (NOTE: Lola's stops serving food after the sun sets, so if you are planning to go there for dinner, get there a little before sunset.) Would recommend Casa Oasis to anyone who wants to stay near the Tamarindo scene, but not in the thick of it.

A True Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending 7 nights in Casa Oasis. This house had everything our family needed- plenty of bedrooms, several sitting areas both inside and out, and a full kitchen. When we were in Costa Rica, it was is in the high 90's every day, and it was always a pleasure to come back to the house, have a dip in the clean pool, and sit in one of the lovely outdoor shaded areas with our best friend for the week, Prince the Cat. If you are a cat lover, prepare to fall head over heels in love with this very sweet boy.

This house is in a great location- Langosta- about a 15-20 minute walk from bustling Tamarindo. For us, we enjoyed being in a quieter area, but having access to the more lively part of town within minutes. With that said, right near the house, there are some restaurants if you don't feel like venturing out. There is Matty's, which is great for breakfast or lunch, Bokas, which has tapas and cocktails, and our favorite, El Sapo, which had outstanding Italian-style pizza. There is also a little market just down down the street for some essentials, food, water, and alcohol.

There is beach access about 2 minutes from the house, and we found that the most beautiful part of the beach was about halfway between Langosta and Tamarindo. This area had very few rocks and good sand and surf, plus it was much quieter than in Tamarindo. With that said, we enjoyed going to Tamarindo also for the activity, restaurants, and nightlife, and if you are feeling lazy or it is late at night, you can get a taxi for $5 to/from the house.

We would gladly stay at Casa Oasis if we were to return the Guanacaste area- it suited us perfectly. We felt very safe there, and it was a clean, comfortable house. I would highly recommend staying here for a quiet neighorhood minutes away from fun!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were really happy with the location of the house and the house itself. We tried most if the recommended restaurants on the list provided by the owner Peter. All were great! Our two favorite were La Esquina and Pangas. House is a good distance from the party area and we always felt safe. The house cat Prince is the most charming cat I've ever met. He's very loving and was always waiting for our arrival. Next time I'm in Tamarindo I will definitely stay at Casa Oasis.

Nice Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Great gated property off the edge of the hustle of little Tamarindo. Less about the town- more about the house.... Well located. super outdoor area with an awesome pool with jets. the hot tub we didnt use since it was already hot out. Nice kitchen with adequate supplies to get essential cooking done. dishwasher. AC throughout worked very well and was a super addition. We found the lighting throughout to be a little on the dim side, especially in the kitchen area but it was adequate. Rooms were good size and the living room was a super space for gathering. Their were eight of us and we all had a bed. The little outbuilding has a bedroom and bathroom and is a cute addition. It had its own AC. Everything was very clean and in good order. The locks and keys were a little bit of a chore as they don't all match but we figured it out. The furnishings could use an update and/or a womens touch as they were just a little sparse. The courtyard was awesome with trees and plants. There is a grill in good condition but we did not use, and an outside table area. The owner was very accomodating and friendly. We had a few hiccups with travel that would have caused big problems but the owner was willing to be flexible- turned out we were able to make our scheduled visit as planned. The property manager was not around on the weekend but let us in quickly and answered the basic questions. The cat was a nice addition and added a little homeyness to the property. Its a fun place, and helped give us a great trip. We would recommend it and could stay again. We hit Rosa's and recommend it (worth the drive) and there is certainly no lack of places to eat in Tamarindo. Just not enough days. We had cars and would recommend the convenience. Enjoy!

Oasis minutes outside of busy Tamarindo!

  • 5 of 5

We found this listing with a few others on the site and enquired about staying from March 25th to April 6th. Peter promptly got back to me and answered all of our questions about Langosta Beach vs Tamarindo. A little apprehensive to be away from all the people. However, this lovely area is only minutes away by car and certainly walkable to Tama. There is a wonderful little Fish & Cheese store with great Italian wines, seafood and deli items. As well, a small mercado for regular fare at the end of the road. There are the beach clubs and a couple of other restaurant places right in Langosta Beach and the beach is 2 little paths from the house! We were here for our niece's wedding at the Langosta Beach Club and so hosted a shower at the house. Maria, the house manager, got us help for the day to clean and prepare for the event. As well, since everyone else in hotels, we were able to have a few small family dinners in the quiet home setting away from all the crowds. We loved cooking and found everything we needed in the well stocked kitchen. The bedrooms and beds were great and the cat quite amusing. By the way, don't leave food around as Mr. Prince is happy to jump up on the counter and lick the butter or grab a snack of fish!!! Since we were here just after Easter (where the town population swells by about 25,000 people), there was a water shortage. The Esplendor atop the hill in Tama had water shut off at about 2 pm in the afternoon whereas ours down in Langosta was not off until later at 6 pm for the rest of the evening. It was the day we had the shower so lots of girls and cocktails. No problem, we got a pail of pool water to flush build up in the toilets! All prep had been done so left dishes for the next day. We enjoyed the pool and the patio furniture poolside, the house, the gates...just about everything. Anything we needed promptly appeared from Maria, well worth the stay and we were sad to leave. Thank you for sharing your home Peter!

Owner's Response: The one thing that I really like about this review is that they appreciated that everything that I and the property manager team could control to make a great stay, we in fact did control. The water issue has been addressed with 2 extra tanks available that have been purchased. It usually lasts a number of days, but it won't last an entire stay. So if there is an issue, there is a water truck that we can call and deliver water to the house the very same day. Until this occurs though, it's a good idea to improvise for a few hours as this group did. Hopefully we will get more rain the upcoming rainy seasons and the wells that Langosta draws from get filled so we won't have these issues in the future.

Great vacation property, lots of private patio & pool amenities

  • 5 of 5

This property offers very good housing besides providing lots of outdoors and patio space to enjoy the Costa Rica experience. There's three individual patio areas attached to his home (one in the pool area, a larger one centered in the back between the housing units, and a smaller one on the side that provided the best breeze during our stay). There was more than enough patio furniture to host many/all guests at either of the two main patios.

The large variety of mature tropical trees provided lots of natural shading. The walls around this property and the solid gate provided total privacy. The amenities within the house provided for everything we desired and each room has individual A/C units. The house is close walking distance to a beach, a market, and restaurants.
