The Space

We are off the beaten track, so you tend to have a little more quiet here for wonderful sleeping. It is an easy walk to shopping, eating and the beach, so entertainment is not difficult!

Your cabin is fully contained. If you don't want to go out and want to just relax, just do it! You have your own kitchen and the grocery is on the way to the cabin, so come prepared and spend the day relaxing!

Guest Access

We have a common area that all guests can enjoy. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off the salt water and lots of trees and plants to enjoy.

Interaction with Guests

We live on the premises, so If you see us out in the common area, come out and say hello! We will usually head down to the beach at some point of the day, so tag along if you wish!!

The Neighborhood

We are situated just 600 meters from the beach, in a quiet area of Tamarindo. We are close enough to the bars and hot spots, but far enough away not to get the loud noises from the late night happenings! The grocery is a short walk, so finding some food or beverages to keep in your cabin will be easy!

We take your security seriously, so our gate is padlocked and you will need to tell us your time of arrival to be sure we are there to meet you.

Getting around

There are plenty of tour companies in Tamarindo that will pick you up here at the cabins. Costa Rica has a pretty good bus system to get you from San Jose to Tamarindo, or from Tamarindo to just about anywhere you want to go!

Getting around town is pretty easy if you are a good walker. We also have a couple bikes we will rent for the day if you'd like a little easier way to see the town!

Other Things to Note

To help keep the cost of renting our cabins low, please help us conserve electricity. Electric costs are quite high here in Costa Rica, so if you are leaving for the day, please turn off the AC, the lights and the fans. The cabin will cool down quickly when you return and you don't waste electricity! Thanks so much.

  • Bob and Sue were great hosts and their villas are such a short, short walk to the beach and near everything in Tamarindo. The cabin was pretty spacious, clean and comfortable. We only had issues with the shower, which did not have hot water and really bad water pressure.

    Response from Bob N Sue:

    We wish you would have mentioned the water issue. That could have been quickly remedied! Glad you are home safe and sound.

  • We enjoyed staying in Tamarindo at these townhouses. Sue and Bob were very hospitable and did everything they could to make us feel welcome. They gave us tips on the area and suggestions of things they'd done. The cabin/townhouse was very comfortable. The location is (email hidden)ry close to the beach and shopping.

  • We had an awesome stay with Bob n Sue! We are thinking of moving to Tamarindo area, and they were really helpful and willing to chat with us for a long time on multiple occasions about their experiences. They seem to really love owning these cute blue cabins! We loved our stay here! Bob and Sue will help you have a great Tamarindo experience. Super clean and cute cabins too. And quiet!

  • The experience was great! They (Sue and Bob) are great hosts, and their place is beautiful. Clean, comfortable, adapted for pets, full equiped for you to prepare your own meals and very quiet (if you are looking for a place to stay in peace and rest without being bothered).
    They are really nice people, and their dogs are also beautiful, we went with our "little" Lara, an Irish setter which didn't get to be friendly with them but was merely a matter of take the time to let the dogs "socialize".
    I highly recommend staying at their blue cabins, a place near to the beach and far from the routine.

  • Bob and Sue's place is awesome! We stayed there for a week and felt very comfortable. Not only was the cabin perfect for what we needed, Bob and Sue are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. They were fun to chat with and helpful with any questions we had about the town. I highly recommend staying at their cabins and have already made a plan to go back and visit!

  • Our stay with Bob and Sue was amazing. The cabin was perfect for our week long stay and very clean. The location is walking distance to great food, the beach and nightlife. Bob and Sue were also very helpful and had great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. We will definitely stay with Bob and Sue again on our next trip to Costa Rica.

  • Our stay in Tamarindo at the Villas Azules was very pleasant. Sue and Bob are very friendly and helpful. The property is gated and their two dogs helped us to feel safe in the bustling beach town. The AC was a godsend in the very hot dry season and the town offers much to do with great towns, shops, and a big beach with gorgeous sunsets!

  • The Blue Cabins were so cute! Bob and Sue are wonderful hosts who will make you feel right at home.
    We were really lucky to be able to book two nights here with such short notice. Our cabin had everything! It was so great to be able to make coffee in the little kitchen. Also, the full size fridge was great for storing all of the food we had acquired throughout our trip. The bedroom, which was on the second floor of the cabin, was spacious and comfortable.
    The cabins are a short and easy walk to the beach, restaurants, shops, and a supermarket.
    Bob and Sue made sure everything was good, giving advice on restaurants and arranging transportation to the airport. We were sad to only have two nights here, but I'm sure we will return someday!

  • Bob and Sue we're amazing hosts! We immediately felt right at home! They helped us book a great private surf lesson, do laundry and gave us doggy treats for their dogs. The cabin was great, well stocked, roomy, safe, and nice and cool at night. We didn't want to leave!

    March 2014
  • We had a fantastic time at Bob and Sue's, would definitely recommend staying at their place
