The main house offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a detached guest house that is one bedroom and 1 bath. It offers all the comforts of a home away from home which includes a large comfortable living room, outdoor bar/lounge, gourmet kitchen, high wood finished ceilings, and a dining room in an exquisite interior. Casa Oasis is surrounded by a covered perimeter balcony which opens on a large spacious deck which includes a swimming pool, jacuzzi, BBQ, with plenty of shaded areas in the front and back for lounging. It is truly the perfect set up for a family vacation.
Playa Langosta is located around a half mile south of Tamarindo. It is nestled in a quiet residential community that although is not gated, is very private and thought of as the perfect place to stay when visiting the Tamarindo area. The beach is beautiful and the natural surroundings are well preserved. There is good surfing and other beach activities. Because of it's proximity to Tamarindo, there are plenty of tours and activities that can be easily attained.
A maximum of 8 people can stay at one time. There is no smoking permitted inside the home, but outdoor smoking is fine. There is a property manager that will be available for any problems encountered during your stay. Please be respectful of this unique property.
Note: There is a cat on the property that cannot be relocated. He can be treated like a pet if you like cats and you can let him inside or you can leave him outside for the stay.
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
Our group of 6 stayed the first week and then another group of 8 stayed the second week.
The home is beautiful and well cared for. The walk to the beach is about 3 blocks and the estuary is really awesome.
You are close to Tamarindo (can walk via the beach) and many really nice restaurants and a great fish market.
The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is up to date. We would definitely stay there again!
PS The cat is a real character!
The house is comfortable, spacious and beautiful! It was a great place to relax in the evening by the pool or in the "backyard" patio after a busy day of activities. Just a quick walk to the beach. Great to walk the beach to Tamarindo at low tide (or spend hours exploring the tide pools). Just a $5 cab ride to/from Tamarindo. Maria, the property manager, was helpful with recommendations for surf lessons and restaurants. My daughters loved Princess (or Prince?), the resident cat! We enjoyed surf lessons, scuba diving, snorkeling, boogie boarding, zip lining and lots of amazing food in the Tamarindo restaurants. I've already recommended this home to friends who are planning to visit Costa Rica!
