This was our second time staying here and we loved it as much as the first time! We LOVE how spacious, bright and clean it is and let's not forget about the view!
This apartment is perched almost at the very top of the Tamarindo Hill overlooking the ocean (from almost every room in the house). Having been twice now and having seen the amazing views and sunsets around Tamarindo, this one beats them all without blinking - hands down! It is literally a 180 degree view of the ocean and the tropical jungle below and the windows are all almost floor to ceiling sliding glass door so the view is unobstructed from almost every part of the house. The sunsets are truly breathtaking.
This place is such a great value for the money. Yes, you can get something more high end luxurious probably with an amazing view but you are going to pay for it. This place is such a great deal, comfortable with good mattresses, clean and a million dollar view for a steal. Sleeps our family of 6 very comfortably!
There is a big hill at the last 100 meters or so coming back to the house but that's a small price for the incredible view. Other than that last stretch of hill it is very easy to walk to and from the apartment into the center of town or to the beach. Both about a 10 minute walk (or 2 minutes by car!). We also passed monkeys repeatedly on the road between the apartment and the center of town on many of those walks - another perk. We also love being just outside of town on such a peaceful paradise with cows and horses often seen grazing on the fields in front of the building but only minutes to the center of the action.
Finally, there are also loads of great restaurants only a couple minutes walking from the condo.
We can't recommend this place enough.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Tamarindo. We had numerous restaurants want us to make sure and stay for the sunset....we would always respond that we have the best sunset seats in town and then we would point to the condo we were staying in... their response was always the same....yes, that does have a grand view...enjoy! The condo is a two level penthouse unit with plenty of space for friends and family. The views of the ocean and the entire Playa Tamarindo are amazing. The unit is located conveniently to the town (easy walking distance) but far enough away to enjoy the silence of the evening. The pool area was a nice respite in the afternoon to cool off and relax. The hosts are warm and welcoming and available to answer questions and provide guidance when needed. Enjoy!
This was my third visit to Costa Rica and first experience renting a penthouse which was really great. The unit was extremely spacious, clean and very well located with the most stunning views overlooking all of Tamarindo beach. The upstairs bedroom has it's own private balcony and full bathroom, making it a great place for a girls trip or family vacation. I would rent here again in a heartbeat!
This place was great! The location was great-absolutely breathtaking views and set apart from the hustle & bustle of downtown, but a quick trip in when you want it. I have to mention the views again because they were stunning!!! The condo is well equipped & was perfect for our group of one family (with 2 kids) and another friend. The top level was the perfect private retreat! Looking forward to our next visit!!
Everything is exactly as advertised at this apartment. The views are spectacular, and the property is kept up in great condition. I wouldn't consider it a luxury apartment , but certainly much better than basic comfort. The A/C worked great, and they provided maid service three times a week. The washer and dryer were an unexpected convenience.
Jenn and her manager, Christina went above and beyond the call to make us feel welcome, and to help us with dining suggestions and booking excursions. There was a minor issue with the elevator one day, and they were right on it, and made sure it didn't become a bigger issue. All the people and places they put us in touch with were exemplary.
As pointed out in the description, "the hill" can be a bit daunting in the heat and humidity. Younger adults may not have an issue with it, but we did often drive the quarter to half mile down to the edge of the main strip, so we wouldn't have to walk up on the return.
We were amazed at the number of really good restaurants in such a small town, quite a few of which are right down on the road at the bottom of the hill. The beach is probably less than a mile.
We were lucky enough to see a family of howler monkeys, one day, come over and feast on the fruit tree near the pool.
We definitely enjoyed our stay, and would stay there again.
We had an amazing time in the Tamarindo Penthouse! The owner Jen and our contact Christina were SUPER friendly and SUPER helpful in getting things arranged. This was our first time to the area, and they provided all the info, made arrangements for us and helped us getting the best local deals. The house itself is in a great location, not far from the beach and the heart of Tamarindo. The views from the balconies are stunning. The pool is a nice way to cool off after a warm day at the beach. The apartment is spacious and clean and was the perfect fit for our (large) family of 8! Thank you for making our stay so wonderful.
Outstanding accommodations, spectacular views and lovely hosts. This spacious 3 bedroom condo has 2 huge balconies with a panoramic view of Tamarindo and the Pacific Ocean, and is within walking distance to the town and beach. The hosts are very kind and helpful. If you are going to Tamarindo, it's the place to stay. We are definitely going back. Thank you.
