About Carol

We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and are outdoor enthusiasts.

Carol purchased this condo in 2006

Why Carol chose Playa Langosta

We purchased this property in 2006 after taking several trips to Costa Rica and falling in love with this eco-friendly(and friendly) country. We LOVE Playa Langosta because it is close to EVERYTHING but quiet(but not dead)! We love this small complex for it Moorish architectural influence and it is elegant but understated

What makes this condo unique

Playa Langosta offer several very good restaurants, bars, a grocery store and small quaint hotels that have cocktails and dining. All of these are in walking distance to the condo. There is a great beach steps from the condo that you can tide pool in low tide and the shoreline is just stunning...for those who surf, there is a great break to the south of the condo (about a 5-7 minute walk). This condo offers fantastic indoor/outdoor living at its best. every room has a terrance and there are sturdy cushioned lounge chairs on each. My guess is you will fall in love with this place too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great property and condo. Had all the amenities we were looking for!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was just off the main strip of Tamarindo, very quiet and relaxing area. We rented a golf cart to get to and from town. The pool and the dipping pool were great to relax in. The cleaning service did a great job half way through our stay. The property manager was very easy to reach with any of our questions and also set up a day excursion for us. Overall great stay and vacation!

The property is beautiful and the penthouse is great for families!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Just watch out for the humongous vases of shells that are placed on the floor in bad spots around the house. I bumped into one and it broke and cut me but they still charged me $25 for breaking it. Not too pleased about that but everything else was great! Also glad I brought a lot of bandaids for my cut.

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness! That is crazy! I am the owner and did not charge you. Who charged you $25? And how did they go about collecting it? This does not sound right nor possible. I will reach out to you and the property manager to get it all straightened out. I am sorry for however this may have happened

Perfect spot in Langosta

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for three couples. There were large tables inside and out to gather for meals and games. The dipping pool on the deck was very relaxing. We were the only ones at the common swimming pool most days. The spacious kitchen had all the necessary pots and pans for when we decided to eat in. The trail to the beach was just across the street. We could walk along the street or the beach to reach Tamarindo. This is a quiet neighborhood, with restaurants within walking distance. When we needed the dipping pool refilled, servicemen came to help quickly. We would stay here again!

Perfect for family of 8 people

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here for spring break and it was amazing. The condo is very spacious plus the outside porches were a nice bonus. We rented a golf to go to the beach and to drive into town. I would definitely come back. Before the trip I had a few questions and Carol was very prompt with responses.
