We stayed at Harry's for 3 weeks and we would not even hesitate to look into other places if we are ever able to return.
Having Harry there to pick his brain for places to eat (and drink), when to surf, what to do, what bugs were harmless, when the market was, etc, was something we could not put a price tag on.
The cabana was clean, comfortable and even came equipped with some friendly little geckos to gobble up any bugs. The google tv system was awesome for a relaxing evening watching movies, there was a hearty selection to chose from.
The outdoor kitchen was fantastic to have BBQs in with other friendly guests we had the pleasure of meeting.
The pool is extra deep which means it stays nice and cool and was very handy to have to cool off in the mid day heat.
The cabanas are very close to the beach but it was also great having the bikes to zip around on. The use of the surfboards saved us a bundle too. There was a great selection of boards for all abilities!
On the property there is a lemon, mango and grapefruit tree. We had monkeys come right into the mango tree that we could watch from the outdoor kitchen. It was great being surrounded but the native wildlife.
Tamarindo is such a great little town. We felt like all the restaurants and shops really truly appreciated our business. Everyone we met from there was so friendly and welcoming. The quality of the restaurants surprised us.
I would recommend this place without hesitation to anyone looking for a real local experience. We hope to be back!!!

Feel like a local experience! 4 clean and well maintained cabinas. Colour coded according to size. Dip pool right outsdie your door was a life-saver after a hot day on the beach. Short walk to the beach along a residential road. Shared BBQ deck area allows you to interact with the other travellers. Free surfboards and bicycles and local advise from the proprietor made this stay exceptional. Longong to be back! See you soon Harry

Room Tip: Keep your door closed so the gecko's dont' take over :)

Harrys place is amazing! A great get away from the small hustling and bustling city of tamarindo. Its location is a short walk away from town but isn't as noisy as being in town. The accommodations were great and every amenity was provided. Harry was an excellent host and guide of the area. His knowledge saved us time and money. The bikes and surfboard were excellent to have a different choice everyday. The cabinas had A/C and tons of movies and shows to choose from. I cant wait to get back there!

I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The cabinas were excellent and provided everything we needed. The pool, gardens, hammocks, and lots of shade provided the ultimate relaxation environment and the upstairs deck and BBQ were perfect for dinner and drinks. Harry is so righteous, was great to hang out with, and provided us with all sorts of excellent advice. The availability of bikes and surfboards was a huge bonus and saved us some cash. All in all it was a fantastic spot and I can't wait to get back there.

Ah what is there to say about old Hair-ball's...the place was amazing. It suited our every need. Harry really takes good care of his guests and has the best dinner recs. A truly knowledgeable guy about everything from surf breaks to happy hours. We all had a blast jumping into the pool and cooking up fresh fish on the deck. Surfboards and bikes were super convenient to take out of the shed and down to the beach. The cabina we had was perfect size and the A/C was nice after a bike cruise. Also there are a ton of movies/music/tv on deck if you are staying in. Hope to go back.
