“Best part of Tamarindo was here!”

Our stay here was the best part of Visiting Tamarindo! We were a group of 6 travelling together and loved everything about the house. The house is about a 20 minute te walk to Tamarindo and after spending a long day on the beach it was nice to come back to the house and jump in the pool and hang out all night. Joost provided us with beach chairs, a cooler, umbrella and boogie board which was awesome. The beds are basic beds but the rooms are very spacious with bathrooms in each room. The house is very spacious groups. Joost was very responsive with our questions and it was nice to have him within a few minutes from the house in case we had any questions.

“Casa Colonial is even more beautiful than in the pictures.”

We loved our stay at Casa Colonial. The owner, Joost, was so accommodating and helpful to us, and he made some great recommendations for restaurants and tours. He also arranged a shuttle from the airport for us with Ivan who was very friendly, and took us to the grocery store. For swimming, we preferred the beach in Tamarindo which is a bit of a walk (about one mile). But it was nice to have a little space from the crowds and night life when we went home at night. Our family of four with two adult children really enjoyed relaxing, cooking and playing games there.

“Great first trip to Costa Rica”
Reviewed 6 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We were there 17-27 January 2015. Joost met us at the house (we rented a car, get the GPS!) to hand over the keys and give us a briefing on the house. OK so when we first arrived at the house, it looked a bit more weathered than the pictures presented. Granted it is on a dirt road and is an open air design so you can expect some dust. However there was some things that could have been cleaner.
However, after a quick email to Joost of some of my concerns, he was back that evening to fix some of the first things on the list, With 4 more adults coming soon, we thought we could use some more comfortable seating; he brought his couch from his place. A bit of an ant problem was fixed the next day. knives were dull but he sent someone over to sharpen them and I want to send this guy my knives since the house knives were razor sharp afterwards. By the time all the guests arrived, the place was fantastic. Since I booked it, my neck was on the block and the place presented great for the rest of the guests.
Even though the beds are just mattress on frame, they were quite comfortable. One room has two twin beds which squeak a bit when you roll over. Linens and towels were great. Joost even bought some beach towels and chairs. He had a roller cooler and three bicycles. The pool was a perfect refreshing temperature. Don't wait until near the end of the trip like me and try yellow and purple pool lounger; absolutely removes and stress. Watch for the Iguana that looks down from the gutter above the sitting area down onto the pool and we had multiple days when the howler monkeys hung out in the trees next to the house.
It is only a 5 minute walk to the beach but there are lava rocks there making swimming difficult. Fortunately another beach easy access point is 6-7 minutes from the house (or just walk down the beach from the first access) and a quick wade through the estuary and you have an all sand beach with great waves to surf or body surf. Bring the boogie board from the house if you want. This access also takes you right by a well stocked little store.
Bottom line: Joost went way beyond my expectations to ensure we had a great time in Costa Rica.

“Awesome Stay in Casa Colonial”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a great week staying at Casa Colonial in Longosta - The home was very nice, clean and comfortable and the private pool was a real plus. This is one of those really nice homes .... like you see on House Hunter shows on HGTV - I would describe this home as one of our best stays anywhere. Another plus was that the owner included 2 adult bikes for us to ride so we did not even need a car.
