“Casa Sereno, the place to leave your worries behind”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This villa is designed for people who love nature, the gorgeous flora of Costa Rica, and the infectious happy disposition of the Tamarindo people. No need for a car, one can walk any where. Sebastian and Juan will assist you with grocery trips and suggest day trips to enjoy the beauty of Guanacaste. Local farmers market, Pedro the fisherman, eclectic restaurants and many shops filled with trinkets to fill your suitcase are all a part of the charm.
Casa Sereno is fully equiped with its state of the art kitchen and comfortable living areas. The various outdoor patios give guests the opportunity to escape to a nice reading nook or dip in the private pool. We have been making this villa our home away from home for a month for the past 4 years. There is no reason to look elsewhere. This is IT.

“Tamarindo Vacation”
Reviewed 8 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We spent 2 fantastic weeks at this property in Tamarindo. JuanRo and Sebastian, the concierges, were incredibly helpful with lining up excursions, recommending restaurants, and taking us grocery shopping. The villa and pool were beautiful and private. The use of the Beach Club was also a bonus. We would often spend our mornings hanging out at our pool and then would head down to the Beach Club for the afternoon. The beach club has a lovely pool area, decent restaurant (with amazing deserts), and of course lounge chairs on the beach. We did not rent a car while we were there and I didn't feel like we ever needed one. The town of Tamarindo was a 15 minute walk, the beach club about 7 minutes. All excursions picked us right up at our door. We had an absolutely fabulous vacation and can't wait to come back to Costa Rica!

“Terrific place to stay”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The location of Casa Sereno couldn't be much better. It's just a short what to a picturesque beach and close enough to walk into the town of Tamarindo in only a few minutes more. However when you're at the house, inside or on the patio, it feels like you are in a world of your own. The layout and amenities of the house are all you could ask for, spacious but cozy with enough room for all of us to hang out. When you add the fact that whenever we asked a questions or for assistance from the property managers, Bob & Karla, our wants and needs were met with immediate attention. I can't say enough good things about those two they where friendly, helpful, and full of good advice. Staying at the house also grants you access to the Langosta Beach Club, and we ended up spending some time there, including a couple of meals, and just like everyone one else we met in Costa Rica they were friendly, attentive, and a pleasure to meet. Being served a cold drink under a shady tree next to the a gorgeous beach at sunset was awesome! Don't miss it.
We plan to be back in Costa Rica as soon as possible and I'l sume we'll make a stop at Casa Sereno a part of that trip too.

“Paradise in Tamarindo”
Reviewed 3 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We (wife, myself, and 2 daughters 12&10) drove down from Borinquen Resort @ Rincon de la Vieja the afternoon of Sunday November 18th. It took a little over 2 hours, probably no more than 75 minutes from Liberia airport. We arrived at the condo entrance for Bob Wilson and had a bit of a language barrier with the security guard. However, he called someone who arrived in minutes and all was well. Bob came out and we followed him a couple hundred yards up the road to the private, gated community of Playa Langosta.

As we entered the home we could see straight thru the foyer/living room out to the lighted, tropical backyard and pool area. Amazingly serene and exactly what you see in the pictures. The rest of the downstairs is also perfectly represented. In short, the home is beautiful and a bargain. The upstairs has two nice en suite bedrooms with private indoor/outdoor showers.

The home is well situated on the outskirts of Tamarindo (literally a 2-3 minute drive) and is certainly walkable although it would be a dusty walk due to the fact that the roads are not paved but are more of a hard pack/gravel consistency. I thought that only added to the charm and made the whole town seem unspoiled.

You are only 3-5 minute walk to Langosta beach (?) which is not really a swimming beach but rocky, unspoiled, and a great place to see the sunset. You can either walk to "Tamarindo" town beach or set up at the Playa Langosta Beach Club (included with your rental) although they will not allow you to bring the lounge chairs down to the beach. You have to sit a tables and chairs. A bit odd and really annoying for a "beach club" not to have lounge chairs. No biggie, Pura Vida, eh? We actually spent a morning down by Witches Rock surf camp where we rented 2 chairs and umbrella for $10 and watched the surfers for a couple of hours.

In short, this is a great home for a family or 2 couples travelling together. We especially enjoyed our breakfast and coffee in the backyard retreat listening to the birds and howler monkeys.

Thanks Bob Wilson for a magical family vacation!

“fantastic accommodations”
Reviewed 22 May 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We spent two weeks in Tamarindo over christmas. The accommodation was excellent. The condo is very well equipped. The location is great just a short walk down the beach to town. Bob is excellent at making arrangements for different tours. We did the horseback riding and the jungle tour. The plunge pool is great after a day at the beach. We loved the outdoor shower.
Book it you'll love it!!

“Great Place, a few changes I would make”
Reviewed 7 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

The place is beautiful first and foremost. It is sturdy, solid, great finishing touches, high-end fixtures and gated security. Pool area is relaxing, patio is quaint and private. The outdoor showers are very cool if you have never experience this. The interior does look different from the pictures as original owner wanted all of her belongings back so they have re-furnished the place. No big deal.
Spent 3 nights and had a couple of minor issues but they were resolved quickly by Bob and his team - very professionally and he personally checked in on the status during and afterward. Very pleased with result.
A recommendation: brochure info says 10 minute walk to town but when you get there you are told "I wouldn't walk, it's too far". Maybe that was because we had my 70+ year old parents with us. People do walk it, but it is not "ideal". The walk is not smooth - it is rocky, rutty, dusty and too far. The road condition is not a "property management" issue more a Tamarindo issue. The Beach Club is also not as close as we thought (not as far as town). You can walk it no doubt, it just won't be pleasant on that road and you'll be covered in road dust. I do believe you can access the Beach Club from the beach side which would be a much better walk, I just felt doing this was like going around your ankle to get to your thumb.
Would I stay here again if we went back to Tamarindo? Yes, most definitely, but we would have rented a car for our stay instead we relied on a tour company to move us around Costa Rica (Odyssey Tours is AMAZING people!!). However, we won't go back to Tamarindo - not our scene as it is too busy for our family and too Americanized.
