Stayed for a month and enjoyed Casa Pio. Property manager Beto was very attentive, responding to our requests for towels/sheets etc. As the photos show, this is a basic property, nothing fancy,but it met our needs. Nice location; about a 6 or 8 minute walk to the beach or the grocery store-or another few minutes to the main drag. No need for a car if you're staying in Tamarindo. We had suggested the host Grant to put a toaster oven here & he did, a nice touch that we used a lot. Upstairs AC worked great. Just be aware if you're tall, the bedroom ceiling slopes down. Not a big deal as my wife stayed on the low side at night. Also, be aware the stairs leading up to the bedroom are on the steep side, use caution if you have leg/hip issues or drink too much. Wi-Fi worked great. Plenty of hot water & we drank the tap water with no problems. Fridge was full size & kept everything cold. The 2 burner stove top took a while to heat up but got the job done. Nice to have laundry available on site too.

Grant's place is great! It's clean and updated and well-equipped for cooking. Beto, the caretaker, is super helpful! You can walk to the beach in about 5 minutes. It's off the main drag so it's quiet and very safe. There is laundry facilities on-site. The only thing it's missing is a pool but otherwise, a fantastic rental and I will definitely come back!

Myself and 2 of my buddies had the pleasure of spending 10 weeks at Casa Pio this summer. I can honestly say that our expectations were exceeded on every front and that we would not have had as good of an experience in Tamarindo if we'd stayed anywhere else, even if we'd splurged on a much more expensive place. Grant is an extremely accommodating host and his caretaker, Beto, was always around to make sure that we were fully taken care of. He took care of our laundry, gave us new sheets and towels every week, always resupplied our toilet paper and paper towels, and even treated us to a home-cooked dinner one night. By the end of the trip all 3 of us had come to think of him as a very close friend. The amenities of the unit were also superb: great AC unit, hot/cold shower, hot plate for cooking, blender, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, etc. We brought an air mattress so none of us had to share a bed for 10 weeks, but the queen bed upstairs would have been perfectly suitable for 2 if we didn't have it. It's also located in a very safe spot, surrounded by super friendly neighbors, and a 2-3 block walk away from the world class beach. I'm doing my best to do this place justice, but it's hard! It couldn't have been a better living situation if we'd drawn it up ourselves, and that's not even including the fact that it cost less than all the other options we were looking into. I'll always be very thankful to Grant for showing us such a good time, and I look forward to coming back and staying at Casa Pio again in the not-so-distant future.

I spent a little over a month at Casa Pio (Feb27-Mar30) and totally enjoyed my stay. The property itself is in a great location and only a few minute walk to the beach and all amenities! The apartment has working ac (both upstairs and down) hot water, and laundry facilities onsite. It has everything you need for cooking and cleaning as well. During my stay I was fortunate enough to meet the owner Grant who is very friendly and will help make your stay a comfortable one. I would definitely return to Casa Pio! Thanks Grant!

I live in Bryan/College Station, TX. I work for a demographics firm that does enrollment projections for Texas school districts.
When I am not working I like to travel down to Costa Rica and visit my property in Tamarindo. I love Costa Rica because of it's sheer beauty and the wonderful people.
I have a main house on my property along with two newly remodeled apartments. I have my apartments for rent to travelers who want a comfortable place to stay, with all the American amenities.
Hopefully one day I can live in Costa Rica long term and enjoy a pura vida lifestyle!
