Our stay at Casa Bambora was great. The location can't be beat! Sitting on top of the hill you get beautiful sunset views, while enjoying some peace and quiet. It's a short walk into the town but away from the noise. We stayed in the 3rd floor studio and it had everything we needed for our week stay. The common...

The Casa Bambora was perfect for our stay in Tamarindo. Joey has outdone himself in creating an amazingly peaceful paradise within a 10 minute walk to town by way of a dirt path. We were greeted in the parking lot and received assistance with our luggage from Joey and Jared. Our third floor room contained everything we needed and an...

We've traveled all over the world, sometimes stopping at elegant resorts, other times little apartments.....and Casa Bambora ranks at the very top of our list of favorite places. Joe has created a peaceful and beautiful little spot that provides laid back comfort with wonderful views, and easy accessibility to Tamarindo town and beaches. The rooftop deck was our favorite place...

First time staying with Joey after many places in Tamarindo. This is off the beaten path enough for some peace and quiet yet an easy 5 minute walk into the heart of town for food and the beach. Joe, Gendry, Jarred and Jen make you feel like family and give you 25 years of Tamarindo experience for all the best...

My husband and I stayed at Joey's spacious apartment 2B for 8 nights. We loved the fantastic views of the mountains and deep blue water on 3 sides. Every morning we lingered over our breakfast on the balcony listening to the birds and howler monkeys, and absorbing the colors of his plumeria and tropical foliage. His pool was always crystal...

We spent 17 days (Dec 30 - Jan 16, 2017) at Joey's wonderful getaway spot. The rooms are lovely esp. the "honeymoon suite". We made friends, enjoyed the beautiful pool, ocean views, and have many sunset pictures from the room balcony and the roof terrace. We loved the birds! We walked or drove into town and explored 17 beaches during...

We stayed at Casa Bambora for 10 nights over the holidays. We had 2B with the three private balconies. First of all, this place is a beautifully matured complex away from the crowds and noise of town. Joey has put his heart into the grounds and buildings and built this place from the bottom up before Tamarindo exploded into a...

Rented room 2B. Great spacious room with views on three sides. Ocean and jungle. SUPER clean and Joey is great if you need anything. BBQ and pool onsite. Great environment for couples and super private if you want to be. Short walk to town down a cute path. AMAZING views from our room and roof top. Thanks for everything!
