Reynaldo P from Key West, Florida recommends this property
Stayed 6 days in February, 2010
Website pictures don't do any justice to the house it was very spacious. Walking to town is a short 10 min. walk. A cab ride back will cost about $4-$5 but renting a vehicle is the way to go, it makes it a lot easier to get to the supermarket and such.
The town is being develop very quickly, and you can experience monkeys hanging out on the trees outside the house, at the same time a couple of small field mice made their way inside the house, this being a huge no no in the States but taking our surroundings into consideration is to be expected.
Great place!! I highly recommend it!!
Tamarindo is located in Guanacaste Costa Rica. It is a small quaint beach town located on the northern pacific side of Costa Rica. The town was made famous by the classic surf flick called 'Endless Summer'. CASA 'Lucky Monkey' is located just a short 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk to the beach or center of town in Tamarindo, the property is perched on a hill above Tamarindo bay, the ocean view is visible beyond the seascape sunset and is even visible from the ground floor and the view from the higher floors has up to a 220 degree panoramic view of Playa Grande, the Estuary, Tamarindo bay and even all the way to Playa Pinilla. Tamarindo has all the amenities of a Costa Rican beach town: surf, sand and sun. But it offers much more to many more. It is the ideal place for honeymoons and weddings, couples, and families, and wonderfully suited to eco-adventure. There are tours, scuba diving, fishing, hiking, all beach, all water sports, golf, tennis, canopy tours and much much more
