This is our third visit to this property, and once again, it did not disappoint. It is a beautifully appointed, clean and modern home with all the necessary amenities for a short term or long term stay. There are two large bedrooms on the upper level each with a bathroom agarden shower (quite a delight to shower under the palm trees to the sounds of birds and the occasional howler monkeys - and . .completely private!). The second bedroom has trundle bed in the event you have extra guests staying. There is a third bathroom (ensuite) on the main floor. The kitchen has everything you need - pots/pans/cutlery/dishes, etc. with top of the line appliances (including a dishwasher). There is a large living room and dining room with a lovely patio table in the event you wanted to enjoy the outdoors while you dine. The outside grounds are spacious - very nice green space and a plunge pool if you wanted to cool off (although the water temp is quite chilly so we opted for the ocean instead!). In terms of location, you are about a 3-5 minute walk to the beach - and from there, you can either walk down the coast along some beautiful sand and rock beaches or in the opposite direction to Tamarindo. I would recommend bringing good water shoes as some parts of the beach have lava rock which could be nasty on your feet. Portions of the beach are either all sand or rock, so again, be watchful of where you are swimming. The walk into Tamarindo was about 15 minutes - either by beach or by road. There's some cute boutiquey and also touristy shops within Tamarindo and a whole host of great restaurants. There are also several small grocery stores near the property or closer to town. There is a much larger grocery store - Automercado (sp) - but you need a car to get there (approx. 10 min drive) and it can be quite pricey but has everything. You also have access to the Langosta Beach Club - which has a wonderful swimming pool, spa, workout room and of course, the beach with lawn chairs, restaurant, etc. - quite the nice perk. In terms of your hosts, I have to say that Jamie and Beth are wonderful to work with. I corresponded primarily with Jamie and he was quick to respond and extremely helpful with the myriad of questions I had. All in all, it's a wonderful property and very peaceful. We have been to Tamarindo 5 years in a row and did stay at other properties (condo, townhouse) before finding this one - and this beats all of them by far.
