Great place to stay. Harry the owner is a very cool guy and he lives in one of the cabanas. He also has a few bikes and tons of surfboards that he lends out to guest for free. We had a full kitchen, google tv, wifi, own hammock, and a pool. 5 star value. 10 min walk from beach and... More

Harry has got it figured out. Everything you need to have a great time. 3 cabinas around a nice pool, a short walk from the beach. We delighted in using the bicycles and rode everywhere. He has a nice collection of surfboards for you to use. Everything is very clean! We liked it so much we came back for 2... More

Our recent stay at Harry's in Tamarindo was long overdue and was perfect. We could have hung out there for much longer than the 7 days we had. Harry is a great host. Super friendly, mellow, connected in the community and was able to recommend the best eating establishments, beaches, tours and who to contact to get where we wanted... More

We stayed at Harry's Escondite for three nights and we wish it could have been longer. Harry is a great host with helpful information on where to eat, the best happy hours, and best of all you are centrally located within walking distance to everything right in Tamarindo. If you don't want to walk Harry has bikes for you to... More

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
