You will be surrounded in luxury and comfort at the new luxury, quaint villas at La Esquina, only 100 meters from the beach. Completed in January 2006, this gated 5 star villa welcomes you as you enter a naturally lush landscaped complex with all the amenities you would expect.

Pez Vela has 3000 spacious square feet of indoor/outdoor living. Located on the top/penthouse/3rd floor level(with elevator). Complete with a private open air/covered dining patio that seats 12+. I also is complete with a private dipping pool/hottub right on the private oversized terrace for perfect indoor/outdoor living.

This quaint complex has a gorgeous 90 foot garden swimming pool complete with lush tropical plants surrounding, lounge chairs and an outdoor luxury shower. Your condo is professionally furnished, offering 3 large bedrooms, a large great room for relaxing, a private terrace off of each bedroom with comfy chairs for reading/napping. It also offers a large, open, teak and well equipped, granite kitchen complete with an adjacent BBQ terrace.

Extensive use of beautiful teak wood adorn all the cabinetry complemented by locally quarried natural stone flooring and beautiful Italian granite counter tops throughout. The beauty and warmth of Pez Vela is only matched by the unobstructed views of the Playa Langosta coastline.

The beach is a short stroll down a garden path and is great for strolling, tide pooling or walking to the lively town of Tamarindo. Playa Langosta is a quiet upscale residential community, but only a 15-20 minute beach walk (or two minute ride) to the lively town of Tamarindo known for its fabulous surfing, dining, shopping and fun. There is also a great surfing beach at Playa Langosta that is about a 5 minute walk from the condo.

The place was great thank you so much for having us. The beaches were fantastic and the surf turned out to be consistent. Your apartment was very accommodating and perfectly located in my opinion. I will definitely consider you if i ever return to playa langosta.

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at our Playa Langosta rental and upon entering the condo, we were immediately blown away. The amount of space we had was incredible. I felt the pictures on the website were true to what the condo was. We were able to have a home away from home experience while on an amazing vacation to a beautiful country! We rented a car and so were able to shop at the grocery store and prepare delicious meals in the beautiful kitchen provided for us. The beaches and town of Tamarindo are a fifteen minute walk and worth it!! We loved La Esquina number five!

As nice as this property is, we were a little disappointed! When we first got there, the ice maker in fridge was not working, this was obvious as the last people left bags of purchased ice in the freezer. My husband took the freezer apart and disposed of the ice jam, but we could still only get crushed ice the entire time. The tap in the kitchen sink was very loose, so we had to be careful not to break it. Two of the sinks had clogs in them too. Some of the towels should have been thrown away as they have seen better days. The shower head in the master bath was really a joke. We tried to position it so as not to soak the whole bathroom. One day all the silicone they had used to repair it finally gave way and it was not useable. I emailed the property manager and apparently someone came in because there was silicone all over the outside deck. I assume they tried to fix it and put it back up. It was not useable then and we did not get an email stating anything until I contacted them. Then they told us it was unrepairable and would order a new one. We were not told when the cleaning ladies and the first guy who came in for the shower head was coming. Did not feel comfortable with this. The layout of this condo is great for three coupkes as there are three bedrooms with their own baths. The small dipping pool was great out on the deck, but the water was never clear the whole time we were there. The location was great! We walked pretty much everywhere even in the 32C weather. The only issue is the roads are very rough and dusty( dust even cam up to our third floor balcony) and people drive extremely fast and very close to pedestrians. One more thing, I feel the seat cushionson the deck have seen better days. The security guys at the front were very polite and friendly! Just being honest with this review, I feel it is better for people to be informed before booking a condo.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that a problem arose on your visit. Our property is very well maintained and we disagree with this assessment . While we do our best to keep everything in excellent working order, occasionally problems do arise. That is why we have PROFESSIONAL and LOCAL property managers who can help if something goes wrong. Our property managers are and were very responsive to the request about the shower head and the dipping pool. The issues were addressed straight away. They were emailed late on a SUNDAY, which is a day in Costa Rica that many people do not work, yet they were there first thing on MONDAY to address the issues. You emailed me, but the other issues you mentioned with the drains, the freezer or the faucet having issues were never brought to my nor our property managers attention to have remedied. There were another set of renters in the very next day after your departure. I checked in with them and they are not experiencing these problems. To yourself and any of our future guests, please communicate to us so that any type of problem can be remedied as quickly and promptly as possible. I have been in many fine hotels where things go wrong and it is how quickly things get addressed that count. Things do run a little slower down in Costa Rica, but they are all hard working people who aim to please and take great pride in what they do. And we do too.
We get many repeat visitors and get many thank you notes on what a fabulous place and location our home away from home is. While nothing can be perfect, we really do aim to please. We think that our new and repeat visitors will continue to enjoy this fine property and continue to come back year after year! Thanks.

What a great location!! A 15 minute walk to Tamarindo and some of the best surfing/swimming beaches I've been to. Or a 2 minute walk down to the rocky, seashell riddled beach of playa Langosta. Amazing sunsets and the most EPIC LIGHTNING STORM viewing from the roof! The pools and facilities of the condo were great and the security guards are some of the most friendly and helpful people we met on our trip! Cannot recommend more highly!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent six weeks at this condo this spring. The condo and property are really beautiful and well maintained. The condo comes with everything you need, including plush bath towels. We loved the location as we could easily walk to the beach with our beach gear to enjoy hours watching the surf.

It's a quick 2-4 minute walk to a small grocery, a selection of restaurants, yoga, and the sand. The roof-view of the sunset was a daily event and also an opportunity to socialize with other occupants.

We enjoyed the Farmer's Market every Saturday morning for farm-fresh produce, freshly-caught fish, and local food and craft products. We often saw monkeys playing in the trees near the condo, as well as iguana's sunning themselves above the pool area.

The condo cleaning service was wonderful; we had them come once a week. We had a problem w the air conditioner and it was fixed immediately, so the property management firm is very responsive if you have a problem.

We loved our stay. The condo was wonderful. We had several sets of guests and everyone had plenty of room and was more than comfortable.

We can't say enough about this facility. The description and pictures match the experience.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at this beautiful condo. Everything is as shown in the photos and in the description. There is lots of space and everything you will need. We had a rental car, but really didn't need it. If we return, we'd definitely use taxis instead.

There's a small grocery store nearby where we bought items for making breakfast and snacks/drinks. It was super convenient. For dinners we went into town. Our favorite restaurants were Ttiki and Seasons. Both were delicious and priced appropriately.

The community pool was beautiful and never crowded. The beach is a short walk just across the street.

Great Place to Stay in Langosta

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently enjoyed 5 days in this beautiful condo in Langosta. It was just what we wanted to relax in luxury accommodations. The condo is very spacious with a great floor plan for a group rental.The kitchen was modern and fully equipped. The outside space was private and it was nice to cool off in the dipping pool. A perfect spot for an afternoon cocktail.The area was quiet. Everything we needed to enjoy ourselves was there from beach toys to game boards. We definitely recommend this penthouse villa for a stay in the Tamarindo area.

From the Owner

We purchased this property in 2006 after taking several trips to Costa Rica and falling in love with this eco-friendly(and friendly) country. We LOVE Playa Langosta because it is close to EVERYTHING but quiet(but not dead)! We love this small complex for it Moorish architectural influence and it is elegant but understated

From the Owner

Playa Langosta offer several very good restaurants, bars, a grocery store and small quaint hotels that have cocktails and dining. All of these are in walking distance to the condo. There is a great beach steps from the condo that you can tide pool in low tide and the shoreline is just stunning...for those who surf, there is a great break to the south of the condo (about a 5-7 minute walk). This condo offers fantastic indoor/outdoor living at its best. every room has a terrance and there are sturdy cushioned lounge chairs on each. My guess is you will fall in love with this place too.
