Very very comfortable. felt like home. Also location is good. Close enough to town and beach. The owner is a very nice. he was willing to put in the extra time to make sure your experiences are tremendous. I family enjoyed having a swimming pool in the living room.
Gorgeous house, stayed for just under a week with kids aged 9,7,6 and 4. The pool was great for a swim at the start or end of a day out, especially in the first jet lagged days when they were up at 3am and could swim without disturbing anyone. Pool is very deep although fine for us as our non swimmers wore armbands. House is decorated beautifully, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms and a well stocked kitchen. It was nice to be slightly out of the town but near enough for lunch/dinner/shops etc, it felt very peaceful. Joost was very communicative and welcoming, a great host. We are very happy we stayed here.
Casa Colonial de Langosta was the perfect location for our one week stay in Tamarindo. The house was amazing with plenty of room for our large group, and the amenities were top notch. Can't say enough about that pool in the middle of the casa - awesome! Jeff R, the property manager, was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on beaches to visit for surfing, snorkeling and basking in the Costa Rican sun. We were lucky enough to be in town for the once-a-month Street Food Fiesta which was a delicious experience of local cuisine. Our first visit to Costa Rica and Casa Colonial will definitely not be our last. Pura Vida!
Stayed at Casa Colonial in Langosta for 10 days over new years with my wife and three children ages 20 to 16. The house had everything you could wish for to relax in and cook your own meals. It is located between the two main beaches in the area. Langosta is a 5 minute walk to where we went every night to watch the sun set with a few drinks. The main beach is Tamarindo and it is about a 15 minute walk to the main section.
The house comes equipped with bicycles, beach chairs and umbrella, cooler on wheels, beach towels. The house even provided entertainment in the troop of howler monkeys that would show up in the trees and on our roof.
The owner Joost went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed and arranged for pick up to and from the airport. I requested a gas BBQ and he dropped one off later that day.
We are already planning a return trip with some friends in the future and will definitely rent this house again.
We were a family group of six, my older in-laws, my wife and I and our two young adult sons, so the 3 bedrooms (one king, one queen, and two twins) and 3 full baths (one within each bedroom) was just right for us. The pool in the center of the home is fabulous, refreshing in the early morning or after a long day at a nearby beach. The open air, open floor plan for the dining, living, and kitchen area works very well. Joost (our host) was helpful and available for questions or in the event that some need arose, and his property manager was equally helpful, especially in meeting us on arrival and orienting us to the home and the area. Far enough out of town to avoid the bustle and noise yet close enough to enjoy local restaurants, stores, and the beaches. Overall, a great value!
