About this listing
Your stay will be in your own private bungalow! You have a complete kitchen with full sized refrigerator. Upstairs bedroom and downstairs living area. There is a front porch and an upstairs balcony.
There are 3 nearly identical rental cabins situated together, so you very well may meet other travelers.
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. Upstairs sleeping area that can sleep 3 (one king bed and a single bed) and downstairs is a sofa bed where an additional person or two might sleep. Occupancy is 3, but 5 can sleep at an additional fee.
We live on the property, so access is easy as long as we know your arrival time. Be sure to communicate that and we will be happy to arrange our day.
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!!
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 Super 2001 grocery is a short walk, so finding some food or beverages to keep in your cabin will be easy! Kahiki is a short walk and the food is good, but one of our favorites is down our street away from town and it is special. That is called "Seasons by Shalomi". Don't miss that!
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 town is pretty easy if you are a fair walker. We also have a bikes we will rent for the day if you'd like a little easier way to see the town!
If you want to see some other parts of this beautiful country, There are plenty of tour companies 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!
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.
We just ask that you keep the other tenants in mind when partying in your cabin. Try to keep the noise down especially after 8pm and before 8am.
Also, we keep the gate to the property locked. Be sure you know how to get back in if you are going to be out!! And please always close the gate behind you and re-lock it.
Bob and Sue were the perfect hosts, they were kind, friendly and very welcoming
Bob & Sue's cabins have that cottage & homey feeling to it. Furthermore, it is in a safe neighbourhood, close to main strip and the beach. Bob & Sue are kind, informative and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely love to come back.
Lot's of space in this 2 story house, nice open concept upper and lower half. Secure environment, it shows that it must be one the Bob & Sue's top priorities. Bob & Sue were friendly & caring hosts. They demonstrated a genuine interest in sharing all that Tamarindo has to offer. Bob & Sue warmly greeted us and continued to ensure that we were well looked after.
Awesome time, bob and sue are as nice as they come. They have an awesome dog named Bella too.
Bob and Sue were completely delightful. My boyfriend and I feel like we have made some true friends in Tamarindo. We were treated like family with a BBQ early in our visit and any help/ assistance we needed in our stay they were there for us!
The place was very clean and had everything we needed in terms of soap in the shower and the basic cooking supplies and dishes. Air conditioning kept the place cool and comfortable.
It felt wonderful to be a part of a little cabin community for our week stay. I would not hesitate to recommend their blue cabins for a short or longer stay in Tamarindo. I really appreciate their hospitality and feel lucky I got to meet them!
Before making the reservation I confirmed with hosts that the wifi worked well. When we arrived it didn't work at all so we ventured around town to find a new hotel. town was very full but we found one for the last 2 nights of our stay. Bob agreed that we should have a refund since wifi is integral for our jobs. The next day we were at first refunded $200 out of $336 which was a bit pricey for one night considering no wifi as promised but we needed to move and we all agreed on it. The hosts didn't seem thrilled we were leaving but they knew wifi was vital to us. we moved to hotel Flores where the wifi was remarkable. The 1 night at the cabin was fine but basic. bed was comfy, only AC upstairs though and no hot water. In general, nice hosts but paying $100+ a night for a basic cabin, no wifi, no hot water and isn't something I think is fair deal. I have a dog and love dogs, but their dog would bark at us every single time we entered property too. I think if they can get the wifi thing going and hot water it would be a value better.
It is really too bad that the internet company was repairing the internet when you were here. Typically it is strong and quick and we had missed having it terribly as well! Regarding the hot water, the shower is on an instant-hot system, so the slower the water runs through the shower head, the warmer it gets. Sometimes people don't notice if the hand held sprayer is also on, and if it is the water flow is altered as well. We are glad you found a place that had internet! Most of our friends said nobody had it that weekend!
