The Space

We live in playa Langosta, Tamarindo, in the same street of Hotel Cala Luna and are at a 10 minutes walking distance from Tamarindo center.
Our house is a beachfront home … just cross the street and you're on the beach. It has private parking space.
Our villa has it's own private garden and private pool. There is a barbecue outside in the garden.
There is a large kitchen,dining room, and living room with television and a sofa bed.
Kitchen includes dishwasher, oven, microwave, blender, coffeemaker, ...
Wash machine and dryer are at your disposal.
This room is the smaller room in the house (check other ad for bigger room) with a private bathroom, but without a private terrace.

A/C system in the room optional.
All rooms have fans.

Langosta Beach (in front of the house) is a beautiful, but somewhat calmer beach than Tamarindo beach which is 5 minutes from Langosta.
Playa Langosta has a very good and famous surf break, so if any of you are surf fans, you're super close to good surf sessions.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • My friend and I had a marvelous stay at Johanny's place. We arrived in the evening, and all the candles in the house and outside by the pool were lit - really beautiful! The house is amazing, the kitchen is so practical, we saved a lot of money cooking ourselves instead of going out to eat. Johanny is very helpful in suggesting where to go and what to do in and around Tamarindo - he also lent us a guide. If he's around, he won't hesitate to chill with you outside by the pool, maybe a shot or two or three of limoncello will be shared... :) I had an incredible experience in Tama and being in this house had a lot to do with it! Thanks Johanny and see you soon I hope!

  • Our stay with Bert & Joha in February was amazing! All we have are great things to say about our stay in their beautiful condo in stunning Playa Langosta. My husband, my 5 month old daughter and myself stayed in one of their rooms for 5 nights, the condo is very secure gated area, with a clean kitchen, pool etc. Bert and Joha are very accommodating and made our stay very comfortable and memorable....they were very helpful at recommending places where we should buy our groceries, what restaurants to eat at and where to go on the beach. We recommend their place to anyone, we give it a 5 star! We will hopefully come back next year, Pura Vida!

  • Johanny and Bert were fantastic hosts! My boyfriend and I stayed at there place for two nights. The house was beautiful and the room was perfect. It was a great location, conveniently located across the street from the beach and next to a small convenient store.

    I strongly recommend staying here :) Overall, very chill and perfect place. I know when I come back to Costa Rica I will be paying a visit to them.

  • We stayed here for 10 days after months of traveling to relax and chill out. Everything was perfect. Johanny and Bert were so hospitable and really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at home. We had such a wonderful time and would absolutely revisit and stay again with these beautiful people. I couldn't speak highly enough of them.

  • Bert and Joah rock as hosts! They were very accommodating to all our needs and assisted my wife and I with valuable local information. Additionally, all their given information was spot-on. After our stay, I consider Bert and Joah no longer as hosts, but friends instead. Additionally, Bert and Joah's communication via this site were excellent as I had many questions prior to my arrival.

    As far as the accommodations go, they were comfortable, reasonably priced (considering the area), and clean. All of the pictures posted on this site were accurate. We were able to save quite a bit of money cooking with the full kitchen and BBQ. I'm not sure if it was advertised, but there are separate bathrooms for each room. The pool and patio area were awesome to cool down or for a nice comfortable nap. I don't think it's mentioned here but the house also has a nice speaker system throughout the rooms to wind down and listen to some tunes.

    The location is a slight walk from Tamarindo (10-15 minutes) . Be prepared for a walk or taxi ride for a night out or groceries. However, the area where the house is located is very secure and very close to Playa Longosta (far better than Playa Tamarindo in my opinion).

    Overall, my wife and I had a wonderful time at Bert and Joah's house. I would definitely stay there again and/or recommend their house to a friend. In fact, if I was there for 6 months, I would rent the room for the entire time!

  • Perfect Place in Tamarindo.
    The area is really nice, close to the beach, and in that area, you can enjoy a wonderful sunset every day. The room and house was really clean. Everything was as shown in the pictures.

    About the Host, Johanny and Berth were really kind with us. They advised us with really nice Vegetarian options in the town, also some reference where to buy basic stuff around.

    Our only problem was that we were not able to book more days =)

  • Joah and Bert were amazing hosts. Very prompt, always willing with helpful information on the neighborhood, restaurants and anything else you needed. The apt is lovely, modern, clean with nice finishes throughout. The pool came in handy as well if your just relaxing on the patio. Location wise is a stones throw from the beach, close to Tamirindo nightlife, but quiet enough for relaxing. Could not of asked for a more perfect apt, hosts, or location. I'd return anytime.

  • Wow. Don't even know where to start. We had an amazing stay at Johanny's place! The bed was extremely comfortable and the house was spotless. The room was large and we had plenty of space to relax. We were greeted by housemate Bert with a smile and drinks, which we enjoyed outside by their pool. We even saw a monkey outside of their place one morning while hanging by the pool.

    The hosts were very nice and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and beaches in town. We would definitely stay here again!
