Harry had the perfect cabinas for us three girls!! We had everything we needed including a kitchenette a pool and surf boards and bikes that we could use at our convenience. Which was every day! Did I mention, Harry has google TV set up in all of his cabinas! His property is well taken care of and clean. It's beautiful... More

Harry's place was great because Harry gets it! From the cold, deep pool to the digital movie library to the free bikes and surf boards, Harry has thought of anything you might want while on vacation. Harry, the well traveled man, has seen the good and the bad in places to stay around the world and has brought the best... More

Wow! Talk about a vacation to remember! Harry hooked us up with everything we needed during our stay. Whether it was surf lessons, places to go, things to see, or even some salt & pepper...he had it all. Our room was comfortable and roomy enough for the 2 of us. Tamarindo is a place we definitely plan on visiting again.... More

This place had everything we needed. Great room, clean and a nice little kitchen. The pool Harry has its the perfect thing for Costa Rica, deep and always cold. Harry himself is super cool, gave us a lot of good suggestions on food and surf spots. It is off the beaten track in the jungle area which is really nice.

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
