Harry's cabinas are clean, comfortable, and at a great location close to the beach. The setup is ideal for getting to know your neighbors yet also enjoying your private retreat. The combo door locks are a nice feature and Harry even provides you with a little mnemonic :) Harry is friendly and funny (!), open to providing insights and hanging... More

We really enjoyed our two weeks stay at Harry's. He was a perfect host, offering any advise or direction that you may request. We were lucky enough to be graced with Harry's excellent cooking skills, as he prepared tuna pokey (hope I have the name correct) for us one evening. It was one of the best meals we had on... More

Harry's was so comfortable and inviting, This place is just a short walk from the middle of Tamarindo. If you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere, comfortable bed and a cool pool Harry's is the place. Nice shady, cool pool and deck with the awesome sounds of the monkeys and the birds. The beach and restaurants are close but not... More

We loved staying at Harry's place. We had everything we needed there, surfboard and bikes included! Even wax for the surfboard was offered to us. :) We enjoyed chilling by the pool everyday. This is is really a special place and the prices are amazing! We will be going back there again in the future for sure.

We stayed two weeks in the orange cabina the first of November. We loved using the deck each and every morning. Also enjoyed using the pool and getting acquainted with the other guests. Listening to the monkeys and watching the birds. We enjoyed that the cabinas were out of the way and only a short walk to the beach and... More

My wife and I stayed at Harry's at the start of our honeymoon. His place was the perfect fit for us! We stayed in a large private cabina, with everything we needed. If we wanted to cook, there was a kitchen with all the appliances we needed! Great pool just outside our cabina in the middle of property. If you... More

Harry's place is tucked away about 10 minutes walking from the main drag and the beach which is a pro or a con depending on what you are looking for - we enjoyed the secluded feel and quieter neighborhood! The rooms are very spacious and we took full advantage of the kitchen for breakfast and cocktail hour. The pool was... More

I stayed at Harry’s el Escondite for seven nights, and it was exactly what I was looking for out of a condo. The price was right, and it offered all the amenities I needed. I would wake up in the mornings, grab a bike and board, and ride 5 minutes to the beach. Would come back after a few hours... More

Harry has all your needs covered when you visit Tamarindo. His Cabinas are neat, tidy and tucked away on a dead end road. He has a large collection of Surfboards to match users surfing skills and conditions. Harry is very helpful with information in the area. Meeting Harry was like having one of my Buddies living in the area with... More
