This is a long time coming. Sorry Joey! My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 months from March 15 - June 13th. All and All, Joey's place is perfect. You get #1 the best view of the ocean in all of Tamarindo. Every day the sunsets were perfect. From your rooms' balcony, you basically have a 270 degree view... More

Absolutely the most beautiful place to stay in the Tamarindo area. I recommend springing for the top floor, which has panoramic views of the Pacific and incredible sunsets. Casa Bambora sits perched on a hill above the rest of Tamarindo, which gives it unmatched views, yet is is a short 5-10 minute walk to anywhere in town. Each room has... More

This was our first time to Tamarindo (3/27/14) and we absolutely made the right choice by staying with Joey at Casa Bambora. Everything you could possibly need in a vacation stay, Joey provided. The meticulous grounds, fabulous pool (our daughter's favorite), amazing views, laundry ( added bonus in my book), and a clean and comfortable studio. The outdoor bar/grill community... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Casa Bambora for two weeks in March, 2014, to celebrate my 50th. We were very happy with the place. It's close enough to town to walk, but far enough to be quiet at night. Joey was very helpful when we need questions answered or advice given, and took care of all our needs. Our... More

What's to say that everyone hasn't already said?! Casa Bambora is an exceptional home away from home. Joey keeps the rooms very clean and the amenities (kitchen stocked with cooking/serving utensils, grill for all to use, overflow refrig with goodies left by other guests and spices galore) make it so convenient to cook and grill at "home." Repeat guests abound... More

We are enjoying our stay. Joey, our host, has been kind and helpful. Also helpful are the guests who are here on repeat visits. Close to restaurants, town and the beach. Also nice indoor and outdoor kitchens and pool. Views are amazing!
