Casa "Lucky Monkey House 2" is located just a short 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk to the beach in Tamarindo, made famous by the classic surf flick "Endless Summer". From the property perched on the hill above Tamarindo Bay, the ocean is visible beyond the seascape sunset. The ocean is visible beyond the trees even from the ground floor and the view from the higher floors looks out over Tamarindo bay and toward Langosta. This wonderful three-story house is set in a grassy courtyard with a small shared pool. The large living area in Lucky Monkey 2 opens to a patio next to the pool through 2 sliding glass doors. The large ground floor living area of is convertible by a wooden retractable wall, creating a 5th bedroom with pull out bed and private bath. Also on the first floor is a beautiful fully equipped kitchen, with stunning granite counter tops and giant windows that flood the room with tropical sunshine. The Lucky Monkey 2 has four bedrooms and the living room has a retractable wall with a full bath that can be easily converted into a fifth bedroom. LM2 can fit 10 people if they are all couples or if they share beds. The entire top floor is a matrimonial suite, complete with Jacuzzi tub, a California king, and some living room furniture. The other three rooms on the second floor have queen size beds and the convertible room on the lower level has a pull out standard size bed. There is a separate parking in the back and a private entrance. The dishwasher, refrigerator, and stove with oven are all stainless steel. All the appliances, cooking and serving items have been tastefully chosen. A laundry room with washer/dryer and laundry sink open off of the kitchen with a half bath at the base of the stairs. An arched doorway with relief ceiling leads from the living area to the hall and the base of the majestic stone stairway that curls around itself as it leads to the second and third level. There are three bedrooms on the second level. Two identical rooms with queen size beds share a bathroom between them and each open on to a rounded patio overlooking the tropical forest foliage. One has an ocean view overlooking Tamarindo Bay and the pool. The forest foliage to the back and side of the house is often frequented by a friendly group of monkeys. Up another flight of stairs is the fabulous master/matrimonial suite, which makes up the entire third level of the house. A double sized patio door makes almost an entire glass wall facing the sunset. From this height, the beach at the south point of Tamarindo Bay is visible, including Captain Island and the seascape horizon. A spacious bathroom doubles as a spa with a Jacuzzi tub on one side. During certain times of the year, a four wheel drive car may be needed to access the house via car. Tucked at the end of the street, this is a perfect spot to escape the world and enjoy the peace, quiet, and serenity that await you!!!

Our stay in Costa Rica
Posted Mar 04, 2020

The homes are gorgeous and spacious. They offer a view that is short of just spectacular. My only issues are that some of the outlets don't work, some showers do not properly function and some of the appliances were also not functional (blender and a coffee maker). There has to be a better handle on maintenance.

Response:We appreciate the review. Glad you enjoyed the house. Roads are truly a challenge in our area especially during the rainy season. Unfortunately not something we can control ourselves. We hope you can visit again and book with us soon again!

Perfect!! Just PERFECT!!!
Posted Apr 18, 2017

The apartment was just GREAT!! Everything clean, fully equipped, A/C working great in every room, comfortable beds, surrounded by nature (including monkeys next to the house)... Loved it!!

The only detail was the last 50m to get to the home, it was a hard road even for a 4x4.

Casa comoda en tamaño pero de dificil acceso
Posted Sep 23, 2016

La casa es comoda en tamaño, pero tiene un acceso dificil para vehículos pequeños (automóviles), las persianas de las habitaciones estaban dañadas y no cerraban por completo, la piscina es pequeña para compartir con por la cantidad de personas que se pueden hospedar, no se informa que el parqueo se debe de compartir y los vehículos deben de quedar en la vía pública.

Great Time
Posted Mar 03, 2015

Wanting a more intimate setting for family, this was the perfect bill. We had a great time. There was a couple of issues that came up, but the management took care of them in a timely manner. Only issue that i had was with the anemities. It states that there is a jacuzzi. A small tub with jets does not a jacuzzi make. Just saying. Other than that, it was a very nice experience.

Muy bueno
Posted Sep 23, 2014

La casa es bastante cómoda. En cuanto al mobiliario de exterior si requiere ser mejorado y algunos detalles com una ducha que no servía y cosas pequeñas que con un mejor mantenimiento se solucionan. El acceso si es un poco difícil y costaba entrar ya que por las lluvias los carros patinaban, se debería valorar tirar piedra o hacer algo.

Great value, lots of space.
Posted Mar 10, 2009

Website pictures don't do any justice to the house it was very spacious. Walking to town is a short 10 min. walk but walking back is a different story, the house is located on a somewhat steep hill. A cab ride back will cost about $4-$5 but renting a vehicle is the way to go, it makes it a lot easier to get to the supermarket and such.
The town is being develop very quickly, and you can experience monkeys hanging out on the trees outside the house, at the same time a couple of small field mice made their way inside the house, this being a huge no no in the States but taking our surroundings into consideration is to be expected.
Great place!! I highly recommend it!!

Tamarindo's Luck Monkey House
Posted Mar 05, 2009

Great stay at a great house near the beach in Tamarindo. Lot's of space, clean and comfortable. House staff were great and attentive and were good at solving any minor problems and answering questions. Good base to explore national parks in Palo Verde and Rincon de la Vieja and beach towns down the Nicoya coast. Not bad drive from San Jose, but better if you come down from Liberia. Great seafood and fishing and the surfing was the best for older people trying to get it up on the water ! Thanks for a great stay. We will be back ! p.s. and now we know why it is called the lucky monkey house. There was a big family of howler monkeys that would visit us in trees near the house in the late afternoon and sometimes in the mornings ! They were our closest neighbors for the week ! Also saw sea turtles and manta rays, plus lot's of cool birds. What a wonderful country and people. Pura Vida ! All the best, James
