“Great house, great location!”
Reviewed February 11, 2018 for a stay in January 2017

We're a little late writing this review - we stayed here in January 2017. It was a great experience!

The house is as shown in pictures - really great condition and the pool is right outside your door. Mauricio is the caretaker and lives on site. He does an amazing job and is so kind. We loved him!

The beach is only a couple of minutes away by car. We didn’t walk as the roads are quite dusty and walking that with our two girls didn’t seem like a good idea :)

Jeffrey is always available by phone and is super helpful. He helped organise some tours for us, including a great rate for our family to see a sea turtle lay her eggs!

The only downside was that one of the AC units in the rooms wasn’t working well. It would take all day to cool the room while the others cooled to our comfort within 30 minutes. Also, the oven didn’t work. One weekend, there was a group that rented the other houses (plus a tent!) and partied until late at night. Less enjoyable but it was just 2 of our 10 nights there.

The house has one bedroom downstairs and 2 upstairs that are connected by an outdoor deck area. We spent a lot of time there! Our first morning, we were woken by howler monkeys - couldn’t see them but what a sound! Then, the next day at about 4:30, we were sitting by the pool and we heard them again. Then we saw them! They were climbing in the trees all around us. They were back 3 days in a row, so close we felt we could touch them! So amazing.

If you want a great homebase while you explore Tamarindo and all the great beaches, this is the perfect place!

Thanks Jeffrey and Mauricio!

Jeffrey!
Top Notch accomadations. Beautiful, secluded, fabulous home. Had a total of 12 family members staying in the immediate area.

Experience Avellanas by far the best of them all!

Quiet, relaxing, and convenient to fabulous local restaurants and grocery store and a short drive into Tamarindo.

And don't even get me started on the walk to the beach.

Jeffery, you will get tired of us before we get tired of Experience Avellanas!

Pura Vida Jeffery!

This place was way more than we expected. Very clean, secure and affordable. The host Jeffrey was helpful and gave us tips about the best places to take tours in the area.
Will definitely visit again, to kickback and enjoy ourselves.

Very beautiful, comfortable, safe and quiet spot. We thoroughly enjoyed having this retreat to come home to for mid day naps and for "space" you don't get at a hotel. Thanks Jeffrey...Pura Vida!

“The Best!”
Reviewed March 3, 2017 for a stay in April 2016

This spot is comfortable and easy to get to. The guard was very helpful and owners were very easy going. Nice private pool for the people staying there, bbq pit, music in the background at the pool. Always able to sleep well because every room has a ac. Full kitchen with pot& pans, plates, cups, silverware, and coffee maker. My husband surfs and said this spot is perfect and takes little time to get to the beaches. Felt like I was at home in my own spot in Costa Rica. Planning to stay there again.

“Fantastic House, Beaches”
Reviewed March 23, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

When it comes to beach vacations, me and my wife are hard to please. With that said, this Avellanas house exceeded our expectations.

The house was fantastic. It included everything we needed, and the pool temperature was perfect.

The beaches near the house are just phenomenal. Lots of surfing and water sports.

This is an outstanding vacation spot, fully recommended!
