About this listing
This cabin is 650 square feet, with a kitchen, bath and two single beds downstairs and upstairs is a queen sized bed, futon (sofa bed), a/c unit and a balcony from which to enjoy the cool morning as you sip some excellent Costa Rican coffee.
Your stay will be in a private bungalow, no other guests on the other side of your wall! You'll have a full kitchen where you can cook, or you can just keep your "fluids" in the refrigerator and go out for your meals! The downstairs has the bathroom and one large open area with the kitchen, dining area and two single beds. This cabin is designed for sleeping four.
We live on the premises, so access will be simple if we know your arrival time? Please be sure to communicate your ETA with us so we can plan our day.
The gate to the property remains locked, so be sure once you are in, you know how to get out. Please keep the gate closed and secure.
Interaction with Guests
Bob and Sue can usually be found hanging around the courtyard or doing some chores. If you see us down in the courtyard, feel free to come out and get to know us.
We are a short walk to the beach and to town, but far enough away to miss the noise of the nightclubs. You can easily walk to the local grocery and eating places, so a car is not essential. There are things to do when you are not on the beach too. Mini Golf, Poker, or just watching sports at the local bar! Ask us and we can help you find things to do!
It's an easy walk to the beach, to shops, to places to eat and it's a great way to explore the area at the same time! We have bikes for rent as well, so ask us if you would like to use those.
There are lots of excursions you can book and many will pick you up right at the cabins. There are fishing trips, zip-lining outings, rainforest explorations... Day trips!
Other Things to Note
We would be happy to help you arrange pick up at the airport if you let us know in advance. Sometimes people like that extra level of security in knowing they will get to the right cabins!
We know some visitors will want to party a bit, but if there are others staying in cabins next to you, please keep the noise down and at a respectful level. If you want to party, just get some friends and rent the whole place!!! Then all you have to contend with is Bob and Sue!!! No drugs allowed.
We felt right at home from the minute we arrived on Bob and Sue's property. They know everyone in town. They had feat recommendations for surf lessons and sunset tours. We loved their dog and cat. Tamarindo is a Super friendly area to stay in, and we felt part of the local scene with Bob and Sue. Their cabin was clean and functional, and we had access to the whole courtyard.
Excellent séjour! L'endroit était sécuritaire. L'air climatisé fonctionnait très bien. Bob et Sue étaient très accueillants. Merci!
Bob and Sue's place in Tamarindo is a little bit of heaven. The cabins are a very short walk to town but far enough to keep all the noise of Tamarindo away. Cabins are cute, fully stocked (Sue even provides awesome homemade soaps) and include AC. Bob and Sue are very well connected with the locals (and liked by all who meet them) and can set you up with terrific deals on the best activities. Additionally, hanging with Bob and Sue at the cabins is a treat. They are both so warm and friendly it's like visiting with old friends. Their dog, Bella, and cat, Buster, provide entertainment as well - we enjoyed watching the two banter with each other and I was grateful for a friendly kiss from Bella each morning. Highly recommend -- we will return.
I stayed in Cabin #2 for a full week with a total of 4 people. I originally booked one of the other cabins due to it just being my boyfriend and I. Bob and Sue were extremely accommodating with transferring us to this cabin as it had the extra 2 beds that we needed for the extra 2 people.
Bob and Sue greeted us on our arrival and they gave us a tour of the place. Cabin was stocked with bath towels and even beach towels to use for the week, which turned out great. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The upper bedroom had the AC, which worked perfectly and also had a futon. The property felt safe with it being gated with only access through a key or a combination lock to get into the premises as well as having a key to our own bungalow.
This bungalow hit home with my boyfriend and his family as they come from a military background and this bungalow was named after Bob and Sue's friend Bill who had served his country. "Bill's Bungalow"
We all enjoyed our stay in Tamarindo and cannot say enough good things about the hosts.
Bob and Sue really know how to make you feel welcome in their blue wooden cabins. We stayed in #4 enjoying the nice job Bob did with the remodeling. Though "cabina" will trigger your perception into "back to basic" this blue cosy wooden house is fitted with A/C, two small terraces, large fridge, hot water shower and a stove with 4 burners. Clean and well maintained. Gated property. Bella the dog is a friendly companion. To the beach is a 5 minute (or less) walk so the noise of the beach bars will not bother you. If you are a surfer bring your board, especially surfing at Playa Grande at Taco Star is awesome. Enjoy! We did 100% :-)
Bob y Sue saben realmente cómo te hacen sentir bienvenido en su azul cabañas de madera. Nos alojamos en el #4 disfrutando del buen trabajo hizo Bob con la remodelación. Aunque la "cabina" se activará su percepción en "regreso a lo básico" esta acogedora casa de madera azul está equipado con A/C, dos pequeñas terrazas, nevera grande, ducha con agua caliente y una cocina de 4 fuegos. Limpio y bien mantenido. Propiedad Privada. Bella el perro es un compañero agradable.
A la playa se encuentra a 5 minutos (o menos) por lo que el ruido de los bares de la playa no le molestará. Si usted es un surfer toma su tabla, especialmente el surf en Playa Grande a Taco Star es impresionante. Disfruta!
Bob and Sue welcomed us with open arms ever since we first booked their Tamarindo cabin. They were easy to communicate with leading up to our trip, as well as during the times of our stay. Both were very accommodating and they genuinely wanted to make the most our vacation by providing us great suggestions/resources for activities and restaurants. They had connections to local people/companies, which allowed us to book tours and activities very easily.
The cabin came as advertised and was furnished with everything (air conditioning, refrigerator, towels, dishes, beds, etc.) you needed for your stay. It was a short walk (10-15 min) to the beach and to the downtown area of restaurants, bars, and stores. We also felt safe the entire time of our stay.
Our whole experience was fantastic. It was great meeting Bob and Sue, as well as their friendly pets Bella (dog) and Buster (cat). We wished we could have stayed longer! Our only regret was not getting a picture with our awesome hosts.
Bob & Sue are fantastic hosts. They waited for us to hand us our room keys and make sure we were comfortable since we were arriving late. They were very helpful in giving us hints and tips on places to visit.
The room itself was great, very spacious and with all you need for a great stay. Location is perfect: you are in Downtown Tamarindo wich offers all commodities you can expect (supermarkets, drug stores, bars & restaurants, etc) but also within a short drive to many wonderful, hidden, off the beaten path beaches.
All in all, a perfect stay!
