Guestbook Comment

Review submitted: November 14, 2007   Date of arrival: November 1, 2007

Harry: you rock man. your place looks even better in person than it does online. all the ammenities we could want- LOTS of boards and bikes too. but the most valuable service you offer your guests is your expert local knowledge.
from where to eat, surf, and grab a brew to how to solve computer problems, harry is on top of it. i would definitely reccommend harry's as a place for first-timers to costa rica. i couldnt be happier with my experience.

Great place

Review submitted: June 25, 2014   Date of arrival: June 15, 2014

Great place to stay. Harry the owner is a very cool guy and he lives in one of the cabanas. He also has a few bikes and tons of surfboards that he lends out to guest for free. We had a full kitchen, google tv, wifi, own hammock, and a pool. 5 star value. 10 min walk from beach and all of Tamarindo. Also has a really cool dog named Don't. Don't is a very smart and nice dog. He will bark at you the first time you meet him, but once he knows you are a guest, he never barks again at you. He leaves you alone, but if you call him over he will gladly let you pet him. All and all, the wife and I are really glad we stayed at Harry's. Just make sure you print out the map to the place, it won't come up on your GPS. We had trouble finding it the first time, but really easy if you know where you are going.

Happy travelers recommend Harry's!

Review submitted: September 3, 2013   Date of arrival: August 16, 2013

M and I arrived hot and grumpy to Harry's after a red-eye flight and long drive from San Jose. Spirits were immediately lifted to find a happy host, full supplied kitchen (including coffee and milk!), a nice little pool, and a higher tech media set-up than we have at home in the San Francisco Bay Area. There's a GoogleTV in each cabina stocked up with movies, music, and of course high speed internet... just in case if you're stuck inside during the rain. M brought his surfboards from California and in retrospect, we could have just used Harry's because he has a selection of well maintained shortboards, longboards, and foamies. Over the course of our week, we made friends with our cabina neighbors, grilled fresh fish up on the rooftop deck, surfed at a lot of beaches (we had a rented car), and went on a few boating expeditions. Bonus: if you're interested in ocean fishing, Harry connected us with Jason at Pedro's fishing, and it was a highlight of our trip!
