Eight friends were heading to Costa Rica and needed a spacious place to stay. This gorgeous home fit the bill. From the start everything was easy as working with Stay in Tamarindo was wonderful. The constant communication to see that our needs were met was appreciated. The house is absolutely beautiful and we loved every single feature it had to offer. The main room was tasefully decorated with plenty of space for all. The sliding doors in the main room and each bedroom facing the pool were a nice touch along with the automatic shade to be used at night to block out the sun in the morning. The beds and the furniture were comfortable and shower amenities good. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything needed for preparing a meal at home. I would recommend however, more plastic glasses for the pool area. The pool was enjoyed early morning and late afternoon when we returned from activities. The house location is perfect for day trips and shopping (about 20 min. to Tamarindo), and going to the Beach Club (by car about 5 min). The Beach Club is gorgeous with infinity pool and lovely, clean beach. The $10 entry fee is credited to any drinks or food you buy. Food and service are excellent there. The house itself is 5 star. As stated in a previous review, the real thing is better than the pictures. We will highly recommend this house and if back in the area, will stay here again!
We spent a wonderful week at Casa Rebecca with our family, 10 in all - 6 adults and our 4 grandchildren, all 8 and under. The house easily accommodated all of us, and the kids' room was just perfect for all four of them. When not at the beach or on day excursions (Palo Verde National Park boat cruise and Rincon de la Vieja National Park), the pool was the perfect place to end the day. The outdoor shower was also a big hit. The Beach Club is lovely too - beautiful setting right on the beach plus a large pool, and only five minutes from the house. The management staff was very responsive, and the house was cleaned twice while we were there, too. It is about a 20 minute drive from Tamarindo, but we consider that a plus, as the town is very busy.
This house was a wonderful and luxurious retreat for my family. Best of all, it was located within close proximity to Playa Avellanas (about 5 minutes to 12 minute drive, depending on which side of the beach you go to). I would happily stay here again!
Ok, so the location is close to everything Tamarindo. Beach, amazing restaurants, Tamarindo town, beach club, Marriot, etc... Gated community, beautiful homes spread far apart, you are in your own world inside the house and around the beautifully tiled pool, and when you want to hit the town, restaurants or stores it is just 10 min away. The house is really well designed and everything is the highest quality. I really didn't want to go home to my dumpy little shack in Encinitas after staying at 49 Las Brisas. Cannot say enough, and big thanks to whoever owns the place!!!
We stayed here the first week of January with another family (total of 8 people). It is really an amazing property! I definitely give it FIVE STARS!! Very spacious and comfortable. Clean! The beds, bedding and pillows were very comfortable. There are televisions in each bedroom. Loved the great room and kitchen area - it opens up to an indoor/outdoor patio and deck where you can barbeque. The beautiful pool is warm and inviting - it's surrounded by low palms which gives the backyard complete privacy. The home is beautifully designed and decorated, stocked with everything you would ever need! All of the bathrooms are very modern and include the waterfall-like shower heads. We took full advantage of the outdoor shower that is attached to one of the bedrooms.
The property is very centrally located. We drove down to the Beach Club every day and enjoyed beach excursions to the south and north. We drove in to Tamarindo a few times during our stay and it is just a short 12-15 minute drive. We ate dinner out every night and the restaurants are very close.
We had the best time here! I wanted to stay longer but the kids had to go back to school! Next time I will book for longer than a week :) We are looking very much forward to visiting again!
