Casa Bambora

Reviewed September 28, 2012

The studio we rented for one week at Casa Bambora was completely equipped and very clean and well maintained, as was the rest of the property. We immediately felt at home and finding a washer and dryer after being on the road for a month was a huge bonus!

The house is situated in arguably the best spot in Tamarindo, with gorgeous views in all directions of ocean and jungle. It's a minor hike up the hill to get to but well worth it when you get there.

Again, Joey was a wonderful host, always able to provide answers to any questions we had and with suggestions of the best places to eat and visit. Sitting around the wonderful pool enjoying the lovely gardens, we felt very comfortable and relaxed.

It is also worth mentioning that our two dogs were welcome!

Thank you Joey and Lauren for the most relaxing and enjoyable week of our trip thus far.

My wife and I stayed in studio 2b for 4 nights on our honeymoon and absolutely loved the place. Even with the "big" earthquake that hit town, Casa Bambora was fantastic. Joey made us feel right at home at every turn and the room was great. Ask him for his advice on food, tours, and activities in town and you won't be disappointed. The catamaran snorkeling tour was fantastic. When we weren't enjoying cooking dinners in the kitchen we enjoyed hitting up Nogui's Cafe for the best ceviche and shrimp tacos I've ever tasted. The views from the top observation deck at Casa Bambora were great and the pool was a nice way to cool off and chill out after running around in town. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at Casa Bambora with a couple of high school buddies. The place is great! Our apartment was clean and super nice. We cooked a lot there because the kitchen (both indoor and out) was fully equipped and made everything easy. The fridge near the pool can also be conveniently used to keep some spare beers around when you're hanging out post-beach. Joey and Lauren are awesome. Lauren hooked us up with some surf lessons the first day we got there, so we also got to meet Rodney the Legend. Rodney has some great longboards to learn on and is quite the character. Dig the vibes and enjoy Casa Bambora!

My partner, her 12 year old son and myself stayed at Casa Bambora for 6 days following visits during the same trip to Dominical and Manzanillo. The place itself is nested on top of a hill just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo to provide privacy, quiet, and some spectacular views from the observation deck and our second floor balcony. Howler monkeys making their early morning chat, birds of all kinds, and highly maneuverable bats in action after sunset also served to enhance our stay!

In reference to our hosts, Joey and Lauren were warm, helpful, gracious and friendly throughout and have gone to great lengths to think of every thing a person could need for a Costa Rican Holiday. We were not disappointed.

As a side, if you have security concerns this has also been very well attended too. All considered, you will not go wrong with Casa Bambora!

Room Tip: The rooms vary in size and view so talk with Joey about what he has to offer!

My Girlfriend and I stayed for 10 Nights in Casa Bambora. The flat was very clean and confortable. The kitchen is good equipped. We liked to cook there. The Pool Area is also very nice and a good place to spend some time. Its a really good atmosphere there.
Joey, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. Thank you for the nice time. We will recommend your place in Switzerland.

Casa Bamabora definitely lives up to the hype. We found it to be the ideal place to stay in Tamarindo. The views, location and hospitality were all top notch. Joey and Lauren were great hosts and graciously met all of our needs. They provided great tips on places to go and restaurants to try. The rooms were clean and spacious. It was a great place to come back to and relax after a day at the beach. As others have said, the pools and outside kitchen/bbq are fantastic as well as the views of the surrounding town and Pacific. I definitely recommend Casa Bambora and would consider it a mistake not staying here when coming to Tamarindo.

We spent the week of July 4 at Casa Bambora. It was wonderful!!! Joey is a great host and the place is fabulous. We stayed on the 3rd floor and the views were amazing. We could see the ocean from the balcony of our room and for a better view, we just went up stairs to the top balcony. You can see everything from the top balcony. The swimming pool and the puppies add a nice touch and makes you feel at home. This is a great place to stay when in Tamarindo so we certainly recommend Casa Bambora.
