This sub penthouse luxury condo on the 5th floor is situated 2 blocks off the world famous surfing beach of Tamarindo. This condo offers exceptional 180 degree ocean views from Playa Grande to Playa Langosta. The sunsets are unparalleled.

There are 2 king and 1 queen beds, sleeping 6 people very comfortably. Guests have access to the pool, BBQ/social area and private onsite gym. The condo kitchen is well equipped and we try to have all those little extras there for you--salt & pepper, spices, coffee filters, garbage bags, dish & laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner.

The unit offers the best of both worlds, being minutes from the main street of tamarindo and yet situated in a space that offers tranquility at the same time. Enjoy a beverage or dinner on the spacious terrace as you listen to the sounds of ocean and watch the surfers challenge the waves in front of the world famous Witches rock. All of life's stresses will fade away as you enjoy sights & sounds while feeling the ocean breeze from the terrace. You will be amazed at the peaceful feelings that fill your soul.

The condo is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the beach and bustling main street of tamarindo. A multitude of activities are available including fishing, water sports, eco tourism, fine dining, shopping and the tamarindo night life. When your day is done you can retreat back to the tranquility of your condo and relax in peace while you embrace the evening sunset.

The condo is finished with fine furnishings and high end amenities. The unit was completed to satisfy all and is tastefully decorated with attention to detail. Beautiful artwork adorns every room of this grand and luxurious condo.

In the large master suite, you will find a king sized bed with a pillowtop cover and egyptian cotton sheets. The bed is accented with a multitude of pillows and is sure to make you rest easy during your stay. In the morning you can open the blinds and see that beautiful ocean view from the bed; or in the evening enjoy a glass of wine in the large soaker tub while gazing at the sunset. The ensuite also has a beautiful, spacious limestone shower, and double sink vanity. With its own private balcony, the master suite offers intimate enjoyment of the tropical environment, where families of monkeys can often be seen moving through the trees. The master suite boasts a 51 inch television & ample storage.

The second bedroom has a queen size pillow top bed with fine linens and a 42 inch smart television. It has an ensuite bathroom that includes a large shower and plenty of storage. The third bedroom features a king sized pillow top bed and fine bedding eqivalent to the other bedrooms. These two bedrooms share a balcony that overlook the pool area & Playa Langosta. This makes sleeping 6 a very comfortable opportunity.

The unit faces west overlooking the ocean to maximize the sunset views. The floor to ceiling windows in all rooms provide breathtaking views.

The unit has a sleek gourmet kitchen with european cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless appliances. The unit is complete with its own washer and dryer. The living room has a 51 inch flatscreen television and blu-ray dvd player. There is wifi available in the unit for your pleasure or business.

LaPerla is tamarindo's newest condo development and offers a pool within the gated complex, (complete with ocean views) and a BBQ area and onsite gym for all guests. Security is on sight 24 hours per day and there is underground parking. The condo has an elevator so getting to the 5th floor with your belongings only takes seconds. This contemporary, modern building in the exclusive tamarindo hills location truly offers the best in Tamarindo.

Activities in the area: Tamarindo is a community located on the world renowned gold coast of costa rica. It offers spectacular natural beauty along with a multitude of activities. Water activities abound from swimming, surfing, long boarding, sailing, or fishing to name a few. Tour the estuary and see first hand the monkeys, crocodiles and many other species and exotic birds that make this home, or stroll up the beach to Playa Grande where the giant leatherback turtles nest.

There are many other adventures including rock climbing, whitewater rafting, diving, hiking the jungle, sea keyaking, golfing, zip-lining or deep sea fishing available in the tamarindo area. There are a multitude of restaurants and shops in tamarindo and a casino all easily within walking distance.

Tamarindo is easily accessible from the Daniel Oduber international airport in Liberia. The drive time is 60 minutes or a shuttle for $80.00 could easily transport your entire group. We would be happy to help with these arrangements.

We will be happy to assist you with your stay and have plenty of contacts in the area to help you with anything you need during your spectacular stay in Tamarindo at LaPerla. Pura vida!!!!!

About Norm & Cheryl Hodgson

We are a family that lives in Alberta, Canada. We all love the beach and relaxing on our terrace while viewing amazing sunsets. We enjoy spending time in "our Paradise" and experiencing all the unique things Costa Rica has to offer. We only spend 2-3 weeks/year in our condo but are looking forward to our future retirement when we plan to spend 3-5 months in Costa Rica.

Norm & Cheryl Hodgson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Norm & Cheryl Hodgson chose Guanacaste

We were looking for the perfect ocean property and LaPerla in Tamarindo offers a blend of it all. We are still amazed at the spectacular views that the unit offers and this is what sold us. The complex is truly unique in design and stands out from anywhere on the beach. The country offers a stable location with a healthcare system equal or better than Canada or the US.

What makes this condo unique

180 degree ocean views from the kitchen, master bedroom and main outdoor terrace are AMAZING! There is still a great view from the other two bedrooms and a direct view to the complex pool and BBQ/social area. The pool is far enough away that noise does not bother while relaxing on the terrace. There is a gym/workout area on site for guests with all new equipment in January, 2016 and additional equipment arriving in Spring. Monkeys can commonly be seen in the trees below. Quiet, peaceful enjoyment, yet just under 2 blocks from the main street of Tamarindo and the beach.

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us traveled to Costa Rica for the first time and stayed at this amazing Condo with the most breath taking views ever!...not to mention the spectacular Sunsets! This Condo is very well equipped with everything one needs for a very comfortable stay. We loved the short walk to the beach and all amenities! The restaurants were plenty and the food was great! There was a good variety of excursions/attractions to choose from, a great way to experience Costa Rica's great culture. The owners were very pleasant and I would (and have) recommend this Condo to family and friends in a heart beat! Pura Vida!!! :-D

Vacation with friends

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious condo with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, very comfortable for 3 couples. We were there with two other couples and the place is large enough that we weren't cramped at all. All amenities to cook meals if desired and a large selection of local dining options for eating out. Awesome covered deck to watch the sunsets and an amazing view out to the ocean. Pool and BBQ facilities are great and the overall quality of the whole facility is excellent. 24 hour security at the front gate which provides piece of mind and the beach out front is one of the best beaches I've ever been on. The sand is firm which is excellent for long walks or jogging. Swimming and surfing is great as the ocean floor has no rocks! The sand is smooth and you don't need water shoes. The quality of the condo and the beach makes this an awesome place to spend your vacation. We would highly recommend!

Fabulous Condo!! Incredible view!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this condo! The views were perfect and so relaxing-made it hard to leave! The sunsets were perfect. I loved listening and watching the holler monkeys across the street! Moreover, the beds were very comfortable (and I'm finniky!) -everything was comfortable. It is decorated beautifully with everything you need-really everything you need. This was really appreciated!! We stopped at the grocery on our way in and cooking and clean up were very easy!! The pool is a nice new addition. Cheryl was so wonderful answering my questions once we arrived. All in all a GREAT vacation! Our kids age 22, 21 & 17 loved it as well! We did many activities with Don at Get Lost in Costa Rica as suggested by owners and he was FABULOUS!! Cheryl and Norm were a great help in planning our trip.
