Overview

About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Bathroom sleeps 6)

What do you get when you give a 1650 S.F. split level Penthouse 80 ft above THE DIRIA HOTEL with its pools and stunning gardens that are front and center on the white sand beaches of Tamarindo to renowned architect Xyanna Bateau to design and decorate from scratch WITH NO BUDGET? You get an ethereal, hauntingly memorable masterpiece dubbed THE BEACH NEST by the creator.No Company I know of meets you personally like I do on arrival, checks you in, tells you about Tamarindo with a lot of valuable inside information, all the best dining options with a map where you can walk to everything within 5-10 minutes. You only need to call me at 858-324-1030 24/7 in Tamarindo or from anywhere in World. I pick up the phone within 3 rings or call you back right away.

As the author of this description, when I first saw THE BEACH NEST I mumbled “ I’ve never seen anything like it” (and I honestly hadn’t). The theme of the property is an airy Tropical Indonesian style with a Balinese motif and can put the observer and occupant in a dreamlike trance to start their special holiday. Does this magnificent getaway fit in with the Pura Vida which C.R. is famous for-I think so. The Architect/Designer has captured the essence of elegance throughout. However it is also practical and designed for water toy storage and with wet people in mind. You see Title block and all marble and wood floors with hand carved wood accents in abundance and then you feel amazement.

The living room has a wonderfully unique, long curling sectional where the sections convert into a comfortable bed . I then stepped up to an elevated Dining Room that I thought was really hip. There are two Master suites, one on each floor with King size beds, a full kitchen with everything a chef could desire and a nice laundry room are other amenities that make you feel at home. This Penthouse is unique and in a class by itself.

In this habitat fit for royalty the piece of resistance was a combined 40 Feet of spacious balconies on Two floors with panoramic views of the Sea and Coast from every spot. That is when I went “wow” for the 2nd time. The wide Tamarindo beaches are steps away.

I found antique columns everywhere and heavy grained cedar paneling. I felt the many original Costarican art works fit in well with everything else. You overlook a 10,000 sq ft pool and gardens directly below. THE BEACH NEST sleeps 6. All of the wonderful hotel amenities are available to you; restaurants, pools,room service, massages. Your wish is our command. We provide complimentary maid and laundry service. Nannies, chefs, private Tour Guides and much ,much more are available to our guests during your 5 star stay. We provide a level of service that will far exceed your expectations. Contact us and spend a memorable and affordable vacation with us and receive the TLC you deserve. I'LL BEAT ANY PRICE FOR A COMPARABLE PROPERTY, LET'S TALK.

About Joel Hookerman

I am a businessman nearing retirement that loves surfing. When I'm not in Costa Rica I can't wait to get back. I've traveled all over the world to many of the so called garden spots but this is the first place I encountered where I wanted to own live in.

Joel Hookerman purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Joel Hookerman chose Guanacaste

I fell in love with The Diria Condominiums. When the R.E Agent showed me this multi level Penthouse it blew me away. I spared no expense in what I feel was a labour of love furnishing it. We have 50 feet of balcony on two floors with unobstructed views of the ocean and entire Guanacaste coast. We overlook Tamarindo beach and miles of wide white sand beaches with few rocks. I surf literally right in front of my property. I can use all the amenities of the Hotel including Room Service. It's gated, with 24/7 security and quiet as a tomb at night the way i like it. My Penthouse is 80 feet above sea level and the views lift my spirits every time.

What makes this townhome unique

A 10000 sq foot pool and additional 50 meters pool for laps directly in the heart of Tamarindo Beach, walking distance to everything. A revered Architect/Designer did this property and I love her work which I affectionately call the Beach Nest. You will cherish the ambiance and embrace the tranquility you feel sitting on our spacious balconies with a glass of our best wine and looking out at the Coast and the emerald blue sea.

Perfect location with a gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent my 40th birthday in this condo and it couldn't have been more perfect! We actually got engaged on the balcony!!! This condo has the best view and is located in the best place possible for those who want a quiet place to stay but want to be in the middle of the town where all the restaurants, shopping and bars are. This place was perfect for us! The monkeys even made an appearance in the tree right next to our balcony. If you are looking for a romantic place to stay within walking distance of everything this is it!

The beach Nest is an ideal accommodation for a family of 4-6 or pair of couples traveling together.

  • 5 of 5

The location was right in the center of town putting everything easily walkable. It was very well appointed, unique and charming as advertised. Joel is a helpful host and the condo resort amenities available to you are a nice plus also.

Thanks for sharing this space Joel! Hope to return one day.

Beautiful unit, amazing view

  • 4 of 5

The unit was wonderful. The view was spectacular. Everything needed was accounted for. Joel was a wealth of knowledge and answered any questions. He arranged pick up at the airport and drop off which saved the cost of car rental (you don't need a car in Tamarindo). The novelty of the howler monkeys on the roof wore off after the first night but you cant do much about that. If you are a light sleeper like my daughter, you may be a bit lacking. We loved the unit but will try out the second floor on our next visit. Thanks Joel.

Awesome.

  • 5 of 5

Tamarindo is great. Quiet and quaint, is sleepy little condo and town are perfect for relaxing and getting away from The Hectic lifestyle of the US. 6 days wasn't enough. The View was killer from the balcony of this condo. The rest of the condo was beautiful, but I barely spend any time inside the condo. Too much to do at the pool and Beach. Perfect surfing waves. Go. Go. Go see this place.

Steve,

Louisville KY.
