About the property

2-storey, 3-BD, 4BA house, shares pool, garden area with 7 other Bayside units

This bright, airy and elegantly furnished house in the tranquil and secure Los Delfines Golf and Country club property has everything: Marble and granite counters, tile floors, wood cabinets, spacious walk-in showers, AC and high-speed wireless internet throughout, and private beachfront patio with gas BBQ. There is a Smart TV with Netflix and the house is fully equipped for cooking and laundry.

The three bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms are all located on the second storey.

The huge master bedroom has a comfortable, high-quality king size bed, a12-foot wide by 5-foot high set of windows overlooking the ocean, gardens and pool, masses of drawer and cupboard space and a safe. Its en-suite bathroom has a 9-foot wide marble counter with 2 sinks and a huge fully-tiled walk-in shower with windows that let you take a shower in the late-afternoon sun.

The queen bedroom has a high-quality comfortable queen-size bed and a full en-suite bathroom with large fully-tiled walk-in shower.

The twin bedroom has 2 high-quality comfortable twin beds and a full en-suite bathroom with large fully-tiled walk-in shower.

The second storey landing has a seating area with a set of upholstered rattan furniture composed of one two-seater sofa, two armchairs and a glass-topped table, perfect for a game of cards or a quiet read.

The ground floor contains the living and dining areas, walled with windows looking out onto the garden, pool and ocean, the kitchen, a full fourth bathroom and a laundry room.

The covered patio opens onto the garden, pool and beach, is furnished and well-lit and houses the BBQ.

The garden area has lush landscaping surrounding a beautiful swimming pool. Walk a few seconds across its grassy lawn and onto the sand of Tambor Beach.

The Los Delfines property backs the middle portion of 5.8KM long Tambor beach, which rings most of Bahia Ballena (Whale Bay). These provide an amazing mix of habitats for an extraordinary variety of animals from whales and nesting Ridley turtles to howler monkeys, deer and caymans. And then there are the birds, a vast array, from tiny irridescent hummingbirds to spectacular roseate spoonbills and scarlet macaws. Bring your binoculars!

A superb beach for walking and running, Tambor makes striding a pleasure with broad flats of firm, warm, wet sand. Its gentle slope also affords long rides for boogie-boarders and body-surfers. And safe too! Great for young children to build sand castles. Board surfers go 33 KM to Malpais/Carmen/Santa Teresa for the big waves and beach breaks.

About Sebastian Pecher

We are not in the habit of talking about ourselves but our children have informed us that we have to say something, so, here goes.

We are a recently retired couple (social worker and lawyer) who have 4 children and 5 grandchildren, all living within a mile of each other (and us) in Montreal. We have always loved nature and animals and the house was filled with them as the children were growing up.

Over the years we have found the winters in Montreal getting longer and longer. We have been told it is our age and I am inclined to believe it. In any case, it is true that we are getting older and older. For many years we have been trying to escape the snow and cold by coming south for one or two weeks. Of all the places we have visited and stayed, we kept finding ourselves back in Costa Rica and, in particular, at Tambor beach.

3 years ago, we decided to look into rentals instead of going to the hotel. All of a sudden we found ourselves the owners of #4 Bayside. This is our haven and we are happy to have you and your family share it with us.

Sebastian Pecher purchased this house in 2014

Why Sebastian Pecher chose Tambor Beach

It is literally on the beach. The beach, at 5.8 kilometres long and with a very gentle slope, is fantastic for walking, running, boogie boarding and body surfing. The ponds, which are part of the golf course, provide the perfect opportunity for bird watching and sighting turtles, caymans and many other critters.We rise with the Howler monkeys and Scarlett

Macaws and we go to bed to the call of the Pauraques.

What makes this house unique

We don't want to bore you with repetition.

I absolutely do not know where to begin. We arrived after dark, so we could not see the surrounding property until the next morning, but when we were shown around the condo upon arrival, I was totally shocked. This condo is absolutely gorgeous. The downstairs area has a flat screen TV and beautiful rattan furniture. It has an open floor plan, which I love. The kitchen has everything you could possible need to cook at home. One of the 4 bathrooms is right off the kitchen. The patio doors, off the living room and kitchen area, open right out on to a tiled patio, where again there is brightly colored rattan furniture. The 2nd floor, where the 3 bedrooms are located, has a small sitting area out near the staircase. Again, there is brightly colored rattan furniture. Great area to sit and read or maybe play some cards. The master bedroom is hugely spacious, and looks out over the pool and ocean, which we found out the next morning. A huge bathroom sits right off the master. It has double sinks and a shower you could do a square dance in. The other 2 bedrooms, although smaller than the master, are more than adequate and each has their own bathrooms.

After our first night, we woke to the most absolutely gorgeous view. The swimming pool is a matter of feet from the patio door. The ocean is just beyond the pool. The area is beautifully landscaped, almost looks like something out of a travel brochure. We met a few of the people that live around the area, and they were all so nice and helpful with information about the area. The beach is a great walking beach, very smooth and not many rocks at all. The area is abundant with monkeys, just down about 3 houses and beautiful birds. If you visit, you will find out that they are up early and just before dusk they fly through and they really let you know that they are around. LOUD but lovely.

We did cook at the condo, but we also visited many of the local restaurants. Henry's Pizza had good pizza, not exactly what we are used to, but it satisfied the pizza craving They also had ribs, that were good. Tambor Tropical is a beautiful resort with a great restaurant. Tango Mar is another beautiful resort with a great restaurant and stunning views. We definitely liked the area and would visit again.

Owner's Response: Il nous fait plaisir de constater que votre réserve principale (loin de tout) porte, non pas sur les lieux loués eux-mêmes, mais sur la situation géographique du club de golf Los Delfines à Tambor, au pied de la Péninsule de Nicoya. D'une part, certains aiment justement la sérénité qu'apporte cette situation. D' autre part, 'tout' nous paraît un peu fort. Ici, avec rien de plus que des jumelles, on n'est pas loin de 'tout'.
