“Amazing Home & Impeccable Service”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I cannot say enough good things about this house. It was very spacious so that large groups are able to have their own space, but an excellent open air 'family room' for all to relax together. The pool was amazing and was used almost constantly. The staff (Jorge, Dani, Gilda, Denora, Julia, Jessica, and Kendi) were amazing, super helpful, and extremely friendly. They also prepared an amazing Costa Rican breakfast our last morning there. Christina Gonzales provided excellent guidance and recommendations on which excursions would be suitable for our large family. Overall, everyone had an amazing vacation that had the right mix of relaxation (at a beautiful home) and adventure.

“This house is perfect for a large family vacation”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had nine adults and 5 children, ranging in ages from 7 to 10. With its many rooms, bathrooms, and open spaces, we had plenty of space. Every room and bathroom was nicely decorated and comfortable. The pool was very nice with a spectacular view of the ocean. We had Tamarindo Catering provide a traditional Costa Rican dinner, a traditional breakfast, and a barbecue buffet. All of these were terrific. Cristina Gonzales, the tours and activities coordinator was fabulous. No question was too small for her to answer. She directed us to a sunset cruise with snorkling, zipling with the monkey museum, and the waterfalls. We enjoyed all of them, though, we thought the drive to the waterfalls was a bit long for what was there. I can not say enough about the wonderful staff. Gilda, Jorge, Dani, Denora, Julia, Jessica, and Kendi were tireless in making sure everything went well. They were so pleasant to work with. They were a large part of what made this experience so terrific.

“Amazing home, views and great”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our family spent a magical week in this perfect home! It was perfectly appointed, cool, open, and immaculate! We even saw monkeys in the surrounding trees one day + friendly iquanas! The experience here surpassed all of our expectations! All of the staff -DeNora and Jorge , Dani, Julia, Jessica, and Kendi and the chefs too were fabulous! No one wanted to leave - we are all day-dreaming today instead of working - trying to come up with a reason to come back to Tamarindo and Casa Puros Dieces as soon as possible! Thank you so much for helping to make this vacation as easy and memorable as you did! Pura Vida! Tracey

“Beautiful home, perfect for large groups!”
Reviewed May 30, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This home is absolutely spectacular! It has a fantastic flow to it with a very large central open floor plan which is key for entertaining. The bedrooms are well air conditioned and the breeze in the common areas is sufficient to make it comfortable. The view is spectacular minus the cell phone tower. Pool is wonderful after a long hot day at the beach. The home is located on a steep hill so make accommodations to get up and down the hill unless you are in good shape. Our only complaints were that the master bath is not very well lit and the bedroom itself didn't have blackout shades. We were promptly woken up around 5:30am by the sun streaming through the large windows. We also killed two scorpions in the room but really this comes with the territory of traveling to Costa Rica. This is also the only room with a television in it. The day manager and cleaning staff were wonderful. The office staff was quite polite as well but we did have a few snags in communication. When booking we asked for a pack and play and were not informed of the extra charge until we were making the final payment. Additionally, we were provided with conflicting information by the house manager and our concierge which was a bit confusing but resolved quickly.

Thank you Patricia! We're happy to know you liked the house and enjoyed your stay!
Thank you for your suggestions for the master bedroom, we'll pass them on to our Operations team so they can work on that.
Apologies if the cost of the pack & play wasn't given to you immediately and if there was any miscommunication between the house manager and our concierge.
We hope to have you back soon! Pura vida!

“Amazing Vacation Home”
Reviewed May 17, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This house was all you could ask for. The service from beginning to end was phenomenal. They had a full staff there on the property to help clean, fix, plan all of your needs during your stay. We were thoroughly impressed with the house as well. It accommodated all 8 couples that were traveling with us and still felt like we all had our own space. I would come back to this house in a heartbeat. It made our trip.

“Beautiful House Perfect for Large Groups”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Just got back from a 1 week stay in Tamarindo at this beautiful house. I was in charge of organizing a trip for a birthday party - group size: 20. This house was perfect for us. It is slightly off the main thorough-fare to provide privacy, but close enough for quick access to the beach, restaurants, etc. For large groups, a spacious central area is key for good group dynamics and this house has it. There is a large central area right next to the pool and kitchen that easily accommodates 20 people and allows great group dynamics while some swim, some relax on the couches, and others are having a bite to eat or pouring drinks. The views are spectacular. For surfers, you can easily see the breaks in front of the house to scope out surf conditions. The rooms are well organized off the main area for privacy. The common areas are not air conditioned but have good breeze blowing through (common for accommodations in Latin American countries.) The bedrooms are amply air conditioned with their own dedicated units. We had a private chef cook almost all meals for us at the house which worked out great. The house staff is accommodating and takes care of cleaning the house each day including kitchen, dishes, and rooms. A few tips from my trip:
1) A day house manager is included as part of the rental cost. There is an option to have a night security for a nominal fee. While we never had an issue with security needs, it would nice to have a staff member at the house 24-7 to provide access for food delivery people, cab drivers, and generally keep an eye out for their arrival and departure.
2) Send your guest list along with preferred sleeping arrangements to the Stay in Tamarindo staff before your arrival (i.e. couples vs. singles, etc.) They can help you plan out how to accommodate everyone and even make additional beds available if needed.
3) Golf carts can be rented for a nominal fee per a day. Allocate 1 cart for every 4 people, so if you have a full 20, rent 5 carts. The house is located on a very steep hill. You will not want to walk up this hill after a night of eating and/or drinking, nor lug beach gear up or down the hill. Other people wrote about the steepness of this hill in their reviews, but it is hard to conceptualize how little you will want to walk up and down it until you get it. Highly recommend the golf carts.
