Villa Verde is a family friendly, 3 bedroom 3.5 bath hideaway, with comfortable, tropical furnishings, and handcrafted Costa Rican furniture. It is fully furnished. All rooms have A/C, ceiling fans, and FREE CABLE and WIRELESS INTERNET WiFi access.
It is only a 3-minute walk to the beautiful TAMARINDO BEACH; perfect for beach COMBING, SURFING, and SUNBATHING.

About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
I can only write of high praise and acolytes for Shannon’s condominium in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. I rented the condo for a weeks stay in January 2011. I shared my stay with 2 of my male friends and what a perfect way for the 3 of us to spend time together. The condo was big enough to accommodate us but was also close enough to down town that it was just so very convenient. No reason even to have a car.
We all took advantage of the fully stocked kitchen for many of our meals, had restful nights sleep in the master bedroom’s huge comfortable bed and enjoyed time lounging buy the pool. A great value in a beautiful town.

A great place to vacation!
great condo, great location!
Upon entering is the living room and combined kitchen area (a bit small for 4 people but very adequate). It is very well layed out with a bathroom on the main floor and a private bathroom with every bedroom. The location is absolutely the best in Tamarindo! 2 blocks to grocery store, beach, restaurants, shopping and an amazing coffee shop-The Princesa Cafe!!
Shannon has provided you with every appliance you will need, books,movies, beach towels, iron and board etc. There is nothing negative I can say about this condo. It was very clean and Shannon was amazing to deal with-very accomodating!! We did not have any issues with the power going out or the airconditioner, everything worked perfectly! When we come back to Tamarindo,
I would definately stay at this condo again. It's a quiet condo, but walk up the street and that is where all the noise and action is, so you get the best of both worlds! I highly recommend this condo!!!
Great Value, Excellent Location, Incredible Owner
The condo property’s garden has a pair of iguanas, named Pete and Tina (you’ll almost certainly see them), and we discovered that what we thought were neighborhood dogs were in fact Howler monkeys. That’s a sound you’ll need to hear for yourself.
That condo property garden is a major feature, with good reason. It’s cared for by a full-time gardener during the day, and has a great pool and patio. We spent most evenings chatting with neighbors out there. Some of them were also visitors (short term and snowbirds alike), and some were full-time residents. All were friendly.
A car is not required in Tamarindo, unless you want to rent one just for the day to see the area. We did just that to pick up friends at the airport in Liberia.
A block from the condo is a great bar/restaurant, with excellent food including a tuna salad that features seared Ahi Tuna. My daughter scarfed it down in no time flat.
Then there is fresh fish. On three occasions we walked one more block to purchase mahi-mahi from a local beachfront fish vendor. $12 per kilo for fresh fish that at least on one day was only two hours old. Made killer fish tacos using Shannon’s well-equipped kitchen and stuffed six people for a total of $20. You owe it to yourself to try some.
We also enjoyed having Internet access via wi-fi (in fact, in my line of work no Net access means I am unable to stay). Shannon literally switched Internet providers when we reported an issue with the original one. Wow!
Which is in the end the ultimate recommendation: Shannon is easily the most proactive owner that I have ever dealt with, and I do a LOT of travel. You will love the communication before the rental, and in the unlikely event that you need her assistance during the rental she will be all over things!
Great condo, location in Tamarindo
One of the best things about the condo is the location, It is a short (5 min with our three kids) walk to the beach. We walked everywhere. There are several really good restaurants nearby (La Esquina, Kahiki, Las Baulas) and all are in easy walking distance. There is a market (Super Mercaso 2001) about three blocks away that is a little pricey but it is good if you need to pick up one or two things. Another market is Supercompro. It is less expensive and I also walked to that one.
There are several really great beaches around Tamarindo (Playa Avellanas, Playa Conchal, Playa Langosta) but the beach right by the condo is very nice, too. Walks on the beach in the morning and evening are not to be missed. Neither are the sunsets. So beautiful. The condo has a nice pool and ALejandro who works there 6 days a week keeps it clean. We enjoyed getting to know him. He practiced Spanish with the kids which was fun for them and they taught him some English words.
We felt like the condo's owner (Shannon) and the property management company were very good about answering our questions and helping us if we needed it. Shannon always got right back to us and offered good tips and advice.
Tamarindo is a very laid back beach town and we really liked it. It is a relaxing place and welcoming place. We felt very safe with our kids there. They loved seeing the monkeys and iguanas. There are a few that hang out right by the pool. There is a balcony off the master so we could sit up there and watch the kids swim and enjoy the view.
I would recommend this condo for sure. We did not rent a car for the majority of our stay. You do not need to really. We did rent one for one weekend which made it easy to explore the other beaches but if you plan to stay in Tamarindo a car is not needed. We did a sailing tour with Blue Dolphin that met right on the beach by the condo. Again, we just walked over there. It was a fabulous day and very well done trip. I highly recommend getting out on the water for something like this tour. We were able to eat, snorkel, enjoy the views and sunset. Just amazing.
This stay will always be a great memory for our family. Thank you, Shannon
Fantastic 3 week stay at this property
