Wonderful Vacation!
Posted May 10, 2018

The penthouse is in a central location to restaurants, shops, bars and the beach. It was very spacious for our group of 5 and we have a private gas BBQ on the back deck, which was perfect. Loved having a washer/dryer in the condo. Everything you need, even beach towels and ice chests were provided. The pool and outside shower were perfect at the end of the day! Our favorite Italian place was just across the street--Pachanga. We would come back. The property manager even arranged a private shuttle for us to/from the airport.

Great Location!
Posted Apr 16, 2018

We had a great stay with more room than we needed in this spacious penthouse. The balconies are ideal to drink coffee in the mornings, drink a cold beer in the afternoon or just relax and read a book. We used the outside shower and pool at the end of every day and could walk to the beach & restaurants. We didn't use the Gas BBQ, but it was nice to have.

Wonderful Month!
Posted Aug 10, 2016

The condo was very spacious with a large kitchen and gas BBQ and had plenty of beach towels, ice chests, etc for the beach. The pool and outside shower were wonderful for hot days or the end of the day. There is a large movie collection for lazy nights and Air Conditioning in every room. It is walking distance to everything, including the beach, 3 stores, a gym and yoga studio. The center of town is 1-block so you can walk easily, but you don't hear all the bar noise. Love it and plan to come back!!! RPM was great to deal with and very responsive when needed.

This condo is centrally located to town & the beach. It had tons of room for our group, with great outside balconies & a wonderful pool to relax in at the end of the day. The kitchen had everything we needed, even multiple coffee makers! I would highly recommend this condo for any vacation. They also provide all beach towels & supplies for the kids to enjoy.

Great Value In Tamarindo
Posted Apr 10, 2014

My wife and I are in are mid 30's and we stayed at this property for 7 days. Had a great time! If you are looking for a large, affordable, quiet place that is close enough to the excitement of Tamarindo then this is a perfect rental. It is a 3 minute walk to all the restaurants/bars, grocery stores and the beaches that Tamarindo has to offer. The property is secure and friendly. I would recommend a stay at Buena Vida #9!

Awesome place to stay!
Posted Apr 01, 2014

My family of 5 loved this place. Our three sons (ages 14, 12, and 9) were happy to have the extra space in this big home. The pool was refreshing for a quick dip. This home had a great kitchen and had all necessary cooking supplies. We were pleased to see everything so clean and the AC provided great relief to the heat outside. It was a quick ten minute walk to the beach which was perfect for beginners learning to surf. Heidi was wonderful and answered endless amounts of questions for me. She has a binder in her place listing suggestions for good surf rentals and restaurants. We loved the Sodas Las Playas which served delicious Costa Rican meals and cheap prices. Only $6 for a huge lunch. The kids loved it. I hope to go back to Tamarindo again

One of the best places I've stayed
Posted Apr 01, 2014

We came for a friend's wedding in March & stayed for a week. It was the perfect location to get to town, to the beach, to the wedding events & still get away when we wanted to. It was a huge condo with a lot of space & great balconies to realx on. The condo is fully set-up for the perfect getaway. You don't need to bring anything but your clothes and flip flops. I highly recommend this place!

Great condo & great place...
Posted Apr 01, 2014

Bottom-line up front: great condo, great place to vacation. Our group of seven visited Tamarindo in for a week of surfing. We wanted a nice place to stay within walking distance of the main area of town and the beach, but far enough away from the late night music for peace and quiet (we're all busy professionals who wanted rest and relaxation, too). This condo was perfect. It's quite large and very clean. The tiled showers and walk-in closets are huge. Lots of areas to lounge in. The condo area is secure by gated access and has a night watch, which may give some travelers piece of mind. The owner, Heidi, was on top on of everything. From travel/local area info to receiving the keys, to the comfort of the condo, it was excellent. There were a couple of very minor maintenance needs that were immediately addressed-- good luck finding this in a typical hotel. For this reason alone I would absolutely stay here again without hesitation. [Heidi, thanks!]

Perfect for our family
Posted Apr 01, 2014

This is a lovely condo in a great location. It is very close to the beach and all of Tamarindo's wonderful restaurants. It has a very big and comfortable living room where you can rest after a long day at the beach. The front porch was great for drinking our morning coffee and watching people walk by. This would be a great condo for a large group of friends. We loved it so much, we are coming for 9-months next year while our kids attend Spanish school.

Great stay
Posted Apr 01, 2014

We stayed over a long weekend in Feb & had a great time. The condo was spacious, quiet & very close to town. We loved that we didn't have to rent a car & could walk everywhere. This was the perfect location for our group & everyone had their own room and space. Thank You!!!

Lucky Us!
Posted Apr 01, 2014

Lucky us!!! We got to stay in Heidi's beautiful comfortable condo for the month of January. The condo was very spacious and so comfortable. I really appreciated the large kitchen with a big island as I love to cook. We bought fresh seafood for a local and fresh vegies and fruit from the Saturday Farmers Market. The condo is in a great location. Just a short walk to the beach yet far enough away that is was very peaceful. I hope to return again someday. Heidi was very responsive and nice to work with.
