“Fabulous place and first class hosts”
Reviewed April 15, 2019 for a stay in April 2019

Titziana and Jim have done a fabulous job with this little piece of paradise. Right in front of the beach, you can watch people of all ages learning to surf in the protected waters in front of the house. The apartment has everything you need for a couple of family of four. Jim and Titziana are the best hosts, very knowledgeable about their adopted community in Tamarindo.

“Paradise!!”
Reviewed March 20, 2019 for a stay in March 2019

The owners have done an excellent job preserving the natural beauty. Their hospitality is first class. The house is clean and private. The location can't be beat, pretty much private beach but an easy walk to town. I highly recommend Blue Lagoon for your next Tamarindo trip!! Thank you Jim, Tiziana & Kona for share your piece of paradise with us! We will be back!

“One of a kind place; one of a kind hosts; one of a kind Kona !!”
Reviewed February 19, 2019 for a stay in February 2019

A lovely, over-garage apartment just a few steps off Tamarindo Beach became home away from home two weeks ago. Hosts Jim and Titsi (Teetsee) could NOT have been nicer to Cheryl and I and we both immediately fell in love with Kona their mountaindoodle. The residence is NOT part of the main house (which I prefer) and the compound has a secluded, get-away feel to it with all the privacy and security you could ask for. (the parrots, monkeys and iguanas were the only intruders!) The pool was awesome on hot days, the al fresco dining area was wonderful at night listening to the waves... and the beach is GORGEOUS!! Jim and Titsi were more than helpful in pointing out the best restaurants and bars - most all within walking distance. Of the three locations we visited in CR during our two week trip - THIS location is where we'd love to return. Thanks guys for a bucket-list visit to paradise! Hug Kona for us !!

“Peaceful monkey niche”
Reviewed January 22, 2019 for a stay in January 2019

When the big gate swings open this property is safe and surreal. Truly an oasis, nestled next to the ocean, you're instantly in vacation mode. You're perched up on a loft with a big porch, listening to monkeys and looking at the ocean.

Costa Rica doesn't get much better! This peaceful, slice of heaven is away from the hustle, but close enough to walk down the beach and experience the town of Tamarindo. Walk down the street, rent a board and you can surf every morning! Half mile down the beach are jet skis, volleyball, yoga, alligators and great resturants. The owners, Jimmy and Tiziana are easy going and accessible, yet share their space professionally.

The space is clean and the kitchen is well equipped, everything you need. Garlic crusher, bullet, filtered water, etc!!! My boys loved the Apple TV and the big porch, best of all their adorable dog, Kona. Can't wait to come again.

“Perfect beachfront oasis!”

person found this review helpful

Jim and Tiziana are such a genuinely nice, helpful, and warm couple who are so generous to share their gorgeous beachfront home with lucky travelers! Well kept, clean, and with everything you can hope for! From the second the gate opens off the drive, you feel like you are royalty! It’s so easy to walk into town by the beach or roads, but you may never want to leave- between the hammock, pool, and beach view right from the house! For when you do venture into town, definitely take up Jim and Titziana on their recommendations- their suggestions for food and things to do are excellent!! Thanks for the best stay!

“Oasis”
Reviewed May 29, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Jim and Tiziana were the most wonderful host during our stay at Blue Lagoon! Great recommendations on activities, dinning, and getting the most out of our stay. We spent 9 days exploring Costa Rica and did more than most people who live there have done and did not have one bad experience! Along with all the available activities, Blue Lagoon is a great spot to hang out on the beach and watch a beautiful sunset! If you are looking for a relaxing vacation or an adventure full of activities I highly recommend the stay at Blue Lagoon. Have not had a better host and can not wait to go back to visit.

“Perfection!”
Reviewed May 24, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Beautifully kept and landscaped property with a spacious, charming, and comfortable apartment. Beach front location cannot be beat plus access to a great pool. Short walk down to numerous restaurants on the beach and an easy walk into town. Hosts very welcoming, friendly, and helpful in suggesting activities, transportation and recommending vendors for souvenirs. Fun area with tons to do. Can be as relaxing or as active of a beach trip as you like. Beautiful view of the sunset each night. 10/10!
