About Mika

We fell in love with Costa Rica for its perfect weather, spectacular views, enchanting wildlife and matchless beaches. But as lovely as all of these are, what really drew us in is the friendly, peaceful nature of its people. We love living here in Tamarindo, and showing others the great hospitality that Costa Rica has shown us.

Mika purchased this house in 2013

Why Mika chose Guanacaste

Casa Amor is the eye of Tamarindo.

From here all you see is out. You’ll find boats to your west, town to the north, beach to the south, and forest to the east. You are walking distance from everything in Tamarindo: the grocery store, the Saturday farmer’s market, and the town’s best nightlife. When the day ends, you’ll have the ground-level view of the best sunset over the Pacific.

When it comes to the beach you really can’t stay any closer than this, and with Amor, you can’t do it with more style or comfort. This really is the Costa Rica people rave about. This is where you fall in love. This is your home abroad in Costa Rica.​

What makes this house unique

Stay in love, and stay on Tamarindo beach , by booking Casa Amor in Tamarindo. The reviews are in. Once again Costa Rica has been ranked the Happiest Place on Earth. (Sorry Disney.) The way we see it, there’s nothing happier than watching sunsets over a glass of wine from your own hammock at the edge of the world. In Casa Amor you can do just that. In fact, from your new home abroad, there’s nothing you can’t do. Take over the world if you want, and do it all with love.

From the open-air his and her showers, down to the wood-slatted floors, and all the way into the hand-crafted tile bath, no detail has been overlooked. Here’s a day at Amor: count the bamboo runners in the eaves until Papagayo winds rock you to sleep in the hammock.

Casa Amor on Tamarindo Beach!!!
average rating of 4.964286 based on 28 reviews

Most amazing nine day vacation ever. Right on the beach. Beautiful house. Staff and service great.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a family of 5. Casa amor was right on the beach and right next to the pool. Ilse and the staff took great care of us. The house was impeccable and cleaned daily. We were walking distance to town and felt completely safe. The early morning walks or runs on the beach were my favorite part of the day. The surfing was spectacular which we did daily. Great for advanced or beginners. The amenities at ochos bungalow had it all. The lounge and bar were awesome for night and daytime drinks. Ilse could book all of your excursions which were at most 2 hour as away. The full kitchen we used daily for morning breakfasts or dinners on the lanai. My whole family were completely relaxed. We would come back with more of our family and rent out more bunglows.

Beautiful barefoot beach bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This casual beachfront oasis was a true highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. We stayed in the 2-bedroom "Casa Amor" right on the beach for three days of our trip. These casual accommodations were just as they look in the pictures. Such a refreshing contrast to the scores of condominiums and traditional hotels lining Tamarindo. Our family of five - including three teenagers - loved this spot more than any other during our week-long vacation. Breezy porch. Relaxing hammock. Outdoor attached airy bathrooms. Otto, the resident crocodile, greeted us on arrival and a family of howler monkeys showed up shortly after. We made fast friends with the funny, warm and knowledgable host Ilse. She made terrific recommendations and took care of all the details. ATV adventure one morning to Playa Conchal. A snorkeling sunset cruise on a sailboat full of beanbag chairs and live music. Dinner at the Dragonfly. We rented surf boards from a place right up the street and surfed every day. Truly a trip to remember. Tamarindo is a vibrant, bustling town and a terrific stop on your trip to Costa Rica but staying here added a relaxed vibe and something more authentic than we would've experienced at a more traditional spot. Highly recommend!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

I had big expectations about Casa Amor and boy they were exceeded. Right form the entrance while the guard calls you by name and two fellow associates are expecting you at the Bar to take care of your car luggage and check in, I new this was going to be a different experience for us my wife and two girls.

The rooms are beautiful, spacious and well organized. Leans are clean and soft the room temperature comfortable but above all the view.

Lots of wild life to see and hear howling monkeys, cariblanco monkeys. We were on the beach and loved Tamarindo.

Wonderful First Time in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Amor on Tamarindo Beach. As we had a party of 7, we also rented one of the bungalows. The house, bungalow and property were very pretty and unique which suited our family very well. Ilse, the concierge, did an amazing job both in advance of our arrival and during our stay. She managed our transportation to and from the airport as well as recommended and booked restaurant reservations and other activities. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for something a little different and fun!

Well done!

  • 5 of 5

Places like Casa Amor are the reason I will continue to use VRBO. It was the perfect blend of a providing a local and authentic"feel" without sacrificing amenities found in a more traditional vacation destination. The home, perfect. The people, wonderful. To start . . .the home is literally, on the beach. . . an increasing rarity in Tamarindo due to increasing zoning restrictions. As shown in the pictures, the outdoor living and views are second to none. I think however what makes this destination unique are the people. Ilse our host, was incredible. So many things that she did were simply above and beyond. The owners Shon and Mika clearly take great pride in what they are doing . . . and are constantly working to ensure a positive experience. Wonderful people. Our family has 3 boys of varying ages. All had a great time playing together and with the other guests.

Thanks to everyone!
