Went to CR for a short trip for a wedding and found this little gem that had everything we needed! Big bed, little kitchen, hammocks, pool and our own fridge to fill with Imperial! There was only another couple staying there at the time, but it really felt like we had our own private and quiet oasis in the busy...

We've traveled to Tamarindo 3 times and stayed at Harry's the past 2, and will not stay anywhere else. Harry's is the place to be if you want a simple and local feel. Harry will point you in all the right directions for anything your looking for from places to eat, surf, fish, or just about anything else your looking...

My husband and I enjoyed the Green Cabina and all of El Escondite's amenities. Harry provided a huge selection of surf boards and bikes! He even had a soft rack so we didn't scuff up our rental car with the boards. We felt very safe at Harry's and felt safe leaving our belongings behind while we were out. The Green...

Harry provides a true hideaway, just up the hill from busy downtown Tamarindo. We have been two times, and hope to return again some day! At Harry's, you're just a quick bike ride or walk away from the beach/downtown, but you're in your own private, peaceful atmosphere where you can relax and unwind. We have enjoyed many great meals there...

We spent 10 relaxing days lazing the hours away at Harrys and Tamarindo. Booking was a breeze, Harry was on it rapido. We showed up and Harry was waiting for us with all the info we needed, we then sat down to meet and greet the other guests (Bren, Cindy and Russ, great people). From there Harry introduced us to...

I would like to thank Harry and Don't (best dog ever....so chill) for one of the most relaxing and pleasurable vacations I have had in years. Harry's hospitality, the cleanliness of the cabinas, the welcome coffee and water and the amazing pool made this a perfect escape pad. Having surfboard and bikes available also made this one of the reasons...

We had a great time staying at Harry's. The place was super clean and had everything we needed. Harry is very nice and helpful on where to go and what to do. We really enjoyed the free bikes and surfboards that were both in very good shape. The pool and upstairs deck are in great shape and perfect for relaxing...

From the time I booked until the time I left Harry was there for everything I needed. Even though I was the only guest at the time in Green, Harry checked up each day, provided local knowledge, and was always colorful. His place is a very short bike ride or 10 minute walk to the beach and the entire place...

Just got back from our stay at Harry's. Upon arrival we received a thorough tour of the Cabina and property, both equipped with everything needed for our week long stay. The property is well kept, quiet and secluded - perfect for relaxing after a day at the beach or walking around town. Harry was available to answer any questions we...

We stayed at Harry’s for 9 nights at the end of April, in Blue and then Orange cabina. We highly recommend it! Harry’s been very friendly and helpful. He gave us a tour of the place when we arrived, showed us surf spots and was always up for a chat about nothing and everything. The place is clean. Pool feels...
