“Perfect Family Escape”
Reviewed 7 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Casa Colorado made our family getaway a vacation to remember! The house is very well stocked, furnished and decorated. The two cleanings during our week kept the house feeling fresh. We felt very secure our entire trip. Steps to the beach, restaurants, markets and shopping. The backyard was the perfect retreat (as advertised) for our family to hang out, eat meals, play in the pool and really just spend some much needed time together. Great memories.

“Best Vacation Ever!”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016
2
people found this review helpful

A group of 8 of us (4 couples) stayed at Casa Colorado in early August and we had the best vacation ever. We knew the house would be great based on the pictures, but let me just say the pictures don't do it justice! Casa Colorado was perfect for our group, everyone had their own private bedrooms and bathrooms for when we wanted to escape but the great room and backyard were perfect for hanging out as a group. We all agreed that our favorite part was, of course, the pool! Great to come back to mid-afternoon after a hot day at the beach or take a late night swim after dinner! The monkeys and iguanas in the backyard were great entertainment throughout the week too!

No need for a car in Tamarindo, the house is a 5-10 minute walk to everything in town, 3 minutes to the beach and a grocery store. We also felt safe walking around at night and in the house itself.

Bob and the staff helped make sure our week was seamless--I would highly recommend taking advantage of the concierge service, they booked all of our excursions (ziplining, catamaran sunset cruise, a wonderful Costa Rican meal prepared in our home), helped with dinner reservations, and reserved all of our transportation to and from the airport. This was truly the vacation of a lifetime thanks to them! We hope to return!

“Could be 5 Star”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015
1
person found this review helpful

The home and pool area are beautiful as advertised, kitchen is fully stocked for cooking, home has decent wifi, location is in a quiet area, down a dirt road about a 10 minute walk to the center of town. Maid service is twice a week and very good. The pool service is daily and appreciated. The home would be a 5 star residence, but maintenance is lacking in a few areas. The double bunk bed room air conditioning is not working properly, our children referred to the room as the pizza oven. We called the property manager on the first day about the AC issue and never received a return call or visit. We did not pursue the issue. The TV in the family room has a bad jack and all the channels are extremely fuzzy, the BBQ works but only 2 of the 3 top racks are there and the burners are rusted out. The door to the master bedroom only opens half way as the door is warped and rubs on the floor. A few tile are missing on the wall to the master shower. All these are minor issues,(except A/C) but should be fixed for such a high quality residence that demands a premium for the stay.

“Tropical Paradise in Tamarindo”
Reviewed 16 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

I rented Casa Colorado for my family to come down and spend Christmas and not only did the house, but the location and local house staff far exceeded our expectations. Spacious open kitchen/living room dining area, comfortable bedrooms, a private casita perfect for grandparents or a couple in your group who wants extra privacy (my son & his girlfriend), and a backyard pool to die for! What a treat it was to come home every night from Tamarindos great restaurants and bars and all jump in the pool. Oh and location...a 5 minute walk to the beach and the main drag, convenient small mercado all while being in a tropical, safe secure location. If you get a chance have the chickas come in and cook a few traditional meals for you.

“The Best Vacation Ever!”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a wonderful time in Tamarindo! Casa Colorado was the perfect house for us. The location was ideal, just a few minutes walk from the beach and the town center. It was ideal to come home to a cool house after a long day in the sun. The backyard and pool were beyond gorgeous and we loved watching the monkeys in the trees. The kids had a fantastic time swimming and playing on the rope swing. The adults enjoyed eating at the beautiful teak table and lounging on the couches and chairs. Ring toss was a blast for all. The house is clean, beautiful, and spacious. It had all the amenities we could have wanted and more. The kitchen is modern and well stocked. Casa Colorado made us feel at home. We can't wait to come back!

“Beautiful Home!”
Reviewed 7 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

There were seven in our group that stayed at Casa Colorado for a week and we found it to be the perfect place for us. The property manager met us when we arrived to welcome us and show us the home. It is a short walk to the beach or the town and yet was a peaceful retreat at the end of the day. The people who cleaned the home and pool were meticulous and we were very happy with that. The backyard is literally a jungle. We really enjoyed hanging by the pool and watching the howler monkeys and iguanas. The home is beautiful and had everything that we needed for a wonderful vacation and we will stay there again if we can make it back to Tamarindo!

“Casa Colorado - Vacation Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 21 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My family and I stayed at the Casa Colorado during our spring break a couple of weeks ago and the Pura Vida team was very attentive to our needs during the stay. From the moment we arrived to our departure our trip was flawlesss with great memories that will last a lifetime. They arranged the arrival and departure transportation and we were taken to the grocery store on Sunday to buy short term groceries for the vacation. The team arranged Surf Lessons and Excursions that my teenagers are still taking about today. They were quick to respond to any questions about excursions, beaches, restaurants and Tamarindo.

Casa Colorado is a short walk to town which allows you to get your daily excercise and the home was clean and roomy enough that we didn't feel cramp like you normally do at a Hotel. A house cleaner came every 2 days to clean the house. We especially enjoyed a few evenings in the pool while watching the monkeys swing by in the distance. The internet connections was strong which allowed me to stay in touch with business and it supported 3 heavy teenagee users without any interruptions.

As a first time user of VRBO, I highly recommend Casa Colorado and Pura Vida for your Tamarindo vacation needs. My family is looking forward to our next trip to Casa Colorado next year.
