Dias muy agradables

  • 4 of 5
Fueron los que pasamos en la casa de Anick y Kenny. A pesar de que al principio sobre todo eran lluviosos, como la casa está muy bien acomodada con la piscina al lado, los chicos disfrutaron mucho. También es muy agradable estar tan cerca de la playa, y Tamarindo es un lugar que ofrece muchas alternativas para pasarlo bien. Muy recomendable!!!

Great Villa

  • 4 of 5
The house was absolutely as posted online. Its a calm pretty little place with adequate bedrooms for 6 adults. The kitchen was well equipped, there were plenty of linens and towels etc including beach towels which was great. The villa is clean. The pool is clean an refreshing and there is security on site who are helpful if you have questions. The compound is small and the villa outside spaces are private enough to chill alone if you wish.

The owners were amazing at helping us get set up. They answered all questions and helped us set up a shuttle from airport. They were totally available by email on the lead up to our trip. RPM property mgrs. were a little glitchy for us hence the 4/5 review. May just be "tico time" attitude :)

The location was great for us - out of town enough to be quiet but an easy walk to get to all activities. Ensure that you bring a flashlight - the road is dusty and can be muddy if it rains. The Langosta Beach Club right down the street was an amazing place for us to hang. The beach is very close - again walk across the street down the access road and there it is :) Its an easy inexpensive cab ride into town. Figure how how much before you get into the cab.

Be aware that many people in the area (RPM included) are very helpful when assisting you in setting up tours (they get a kickback) - its actually easier to walk into town and set up the tours yourself - you can negotiate a better rate.

We would recommend RTV with Action tours (by villa Amarillo) and Marlin Del Ray catamaran.

Great food at Langosta Beach Club and make the trek to the far end of town to the Paris Bakery to get amazing croissants and pastries and quiches :) Grocery - as noted is expensive - its probably better to cab or drive to one of the major grocery stores outside of town and stock up once at the start of your trip - vs numerous trips to the small local (expensive) stores.

Use trip advisor to negotiate the numerous restaurants and activities.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, a lot of great info for next guest! Sorry if you had glitches with my manager, i have contacted them and they gave their excuse to you for not being able to offer 100 % satisfaction. I,personally,don't bother if guys like RPM take some fee when finding a tour for me. I consider it like a small tip, because it is not so big difference in price. But i can understand people who like to shop and bargain, to seek for best price. Hope you will come back!

Another great trip to Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5
My family just got back for our trip to Tamarindo. We have been to Tamarindo now 4 years in a row. The first 2 years stayed across the street from Casa Valencia the other the 3rd year stayed in a high rise in town. We really enjoyed the quiet relaxing time at Casa Valencia, the home is beautiful, kitchen has every utensil you need, the grounds were beautiful, saw monkeys every day, the pool was very nice and the maids , guards were friendly and provided a great service. You are about a 2 minute walk down a trail to Suizo beach, we were lucky and got a good swell so we surfed twice a day. The nice thing about having 4 homes there that share the pool was me were able to meet a few really nice families and hang out with them. Great atmosphere.

Thanks Annick and Kenny for providing a great place to stay at a great price. We did alot of searching for homes and finally decided on Casa Valencia. What a great choice and we look forward to coming back next year.

Location is good - 1 minute walk to the beach and 10-minute walk to main town area. Unit is comfortable and great for families with young kids or teens. However the road to town is dusty and very muddy after it rains. Not sure this is safe for young children. Tamarindo is one of the most expensive places I have ever visited (note: I have traveled to over 100 countries) and frankly very overrated. Take the price of almost any item you buy in the U.S. (can of coke, suntan lotion, beer, snacks etc) and triple or more the price. Example a can of Coke in the US in a supermarket is about .30-cents - Tamarindo (Costa Rica as well) cost is $1.25. Bottle of suntan lotion in US $6 - Tamarindo $24. There were 3 of us (myself and my teenage Sons). Breakfast is about $65, Lunch $75 and dinner never less than $100 - these are basic restaurants with simple food The 10-day trip including airfare from the US (airfare $700 each) costs us over $12,000 USD. Therefore, do NOT listen to the people or ads making Costa Rica out to be a "budget destination". Far from it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your reply. I was hoping more a review on the condo rather than on the Costa Rica retail Prices, but i understand it is a part of the vacation. Just keep in mind that there is no Walmart in Tamarindo, but if you compare a touristic destination in US and one in Costa Rica, price are very close.

Beautiful, quiet and elegant

We love Casa de Valencia and have returned many times. It is a lovely home, well furnished with a great super stocked kitchen, large flat screen tv and just plain comfortable. It is great for families or for 2 couples. There is a new BBQ by the pool which we also loved. Walk to town, the beach is steps away just across the street. Quiet secure complex with 5 or 6 homes. Highly recommend this property!

From the Owner

Costa Rica surpassed every other destinations as it has a lot of attractions, beaches, sports like all year surf, eco-tourism, no really bad weather. Very hot sea so you don't need wetsuit for watersport. You can go there all year round as Guanacaste is the driest Province of CR, so it usually doesn't rain all week in rainy season. It has a really negligeable violent crime, and feel really safe. When searching for a home, Casa de Valencia always stayed on top condo we visited. It is really close to the beach, so if you forget something at the house, you just don't loose much time for going back for it! It is far enough from the disco club of downtown so you have peaceful night. Garden is very luxurious and it feel COSTA RICA!

Casa de Valencia was previously owned by Debra, she kept the place attractive and in perfect shape. We intend to keep it that way. Most condo you visit lack of glasses, towell or sometimes miss maintenance, all things you will have plenty at Casa de Valencia.
