As much as we loved Tamarindo and the small, quaint town, with the beautiful quiet and undisturbed beaches with amazing sea shells, staying at Harry's was what made the trip for us. He has 3 cabinas, all which all nice, well-equiped with everything you could need, a full kitchen, air-conditioning, and very comfortable beds. The pool was amazing! The water... More

This was our first time in Tamarindo and we couldn't have made a better choice than El Escondite. We spent a week in the Orange Cabina, and this truly felt like our home away from home. The cabinas are clean, comfortable, and have everything you could possibly need. Harry goes above and beyond to make sure that his guests are... More

This was our first time in Tamarindo and in Costa Rica and Harry's place and Harry made things super easy with good information, good internet for working and a quiet place just slightly above the town. The walks or bikes to the surf were nice and the cabina and pool were well set up to give privacy as well as... More

This was our second stay with Harry and we were again super happy with the accommodations. We stayed in the Blue Cabina, which is roomy, clean and had everything we needed, including a full kitchen and cooking utensils. We had inquired about a blender, and Harry made sure there was one in the room when we arrived. Each room has... More

Harry & his dog Don’t welcomed us with big smiles & barks when we arrived. He showed us around the property and gave us the low down on our cabaña. We had a chance to settle in a bit, and then it was off to happy hour at Nogui's! He is so knowledgeable about the area, and pretty much anything... More

We could not have had a better time on our trip and it's all thanks to Harry. His place in Tamarindo is perfect! The pool is just the right size for an afternoon float. The second floor deck was a great place to enjoy our morning coffee and watch the wildlife (monkeys are way too much fun)! But even better... More

Loved staying at Harry's place. It's clean, has good A/C, nice pool, plenty of free surf boards for all abilities, free bikes, tv, wifi, Internet, kitchenette the list goes on. My buddy and I went to Tamarindo solely to surf and his boards worked great for us. The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 instead of 5 out... More

First, Harry is a great host. He has been here for a long time and it pays off through his recommendations. If you wan to know where to get the best quality and good value-for-money restaurants, surfing lessons, fresh seafood, taxis, etc, he will do that and more. Second, the place itself is perfect. There are lights that automatically turn... More

If you are looking for an amazing host, great neighbors and a friendly atmosphere look no further than Harry's. I would highly recommend it to any traveler visiting the area. The rooms are great you can cook your own food in your kitchen or use the BBQ. There is also a very cool pool and Harry is awesome.
