We rented a condo from an owner that doesn't spend all winter at the apartment. We had a ground floor unit next to a pool. This unit was modern and only a few years old. I understand that some other units are not furnished as well, so I guess we were lucky. Situated about 10 minutes drive from Tamarindo (yes... More

This was a great place, with a really good location just outside Tamarindo, but not in the boondocks. It is actually a condominium development which still has unsold units. The developer rents those units to tourists. Our units (we reserved two) were almost new, and were clean and fully equipped. The grounds were clean and well maintained and we loved... More

A lovely gated community/hotel just ten or so minutes from Tamarindo and surrounding beaches. It was very peaceful and quiet, pools were great, owner gave us lots of recommendations of things to do and see. Units are super clean and very spacious. Overall highly recommend!! But probably not good if you don't have you're own means of transport.

Our first stop in Costa Rica was perfect after a long, dark drive from Liberia near midnight. Security was waiting and aware of our arrival. One personal lead us to our unit. We open the door to a modern, clean 2 bedroom unit on the 2nd floor. The air conditioning was welcomed after a long day of traveling. The Oaks... More

Thanks for the great review. We have been collecting reviews from our guests of their favorite beaches, tours, river rafting, volcano, zipline, turtle watching and so on, and are providing that information free on check in. It should be in the information book in your apartment the next time you come, or you can ask in advance and we can... More

Upon on arrival we were very pleased with our unit, it was very safe, clean with many of the conveniences of home.

Absolutely loved this place. I really like the fact it's a little bit removed from Tamarindo (less than 10 min drive), but close enough to enjoy all it has to offer. Accommodations are great. It's a two bedroom condo. The kitchen is fully equipped for those who like to cook, and there's a market just down the street. Each room... More

We stay at the Oaks while we are visiting Costa Rica's Pacific coast beaches quite a few times a year and am always happy with these condos. They have everything we need as a family and the location is perfect. We like to visit Playa Flamingo, Playa Grande and several other beaches and towns besides Tamarindo and this is perfect,...

We stayed at The Oaks for the month of February and enjoyed our stay immensely! The buildings, pools and grounds are kept pristine. We found the location to be ideal. Close enough to everything but away from the hustle and bustle at the same time. There were many great beaches that you can go to within a 30 minute drive.... More

First let me share the setup of my trip. Had to find a last minute condo (2 days prior to trip) at a reasonable price that could accommodate a kid, dog and a disable senior citizen so needed a first floor apt.

The Oaks was my home for a year while I was teaching English in Costa Rica. I was quite happy with all the amenities that were available to me at the property.
