  • Very nice location and very nice apartment, spacious and great location.
    Check-in and check-out was very smooth.
    Scott and the people helping him to run the apartment smoothly where very helpful, we were contacted right away and made sure everything goes as per plan.
    Highly recommended.

  • Scott and his team were great to work with. Scott was very receptive as was his team. The location was great for our group of 6 young people. The condo is within walking distance to everything that we needed and took us under 10 minutes to walk to the beach.
    It is also VERY close (across the street) from a dance club that is VERY loud when they have their parties (Tuesday & Saturday nights when we were there). It wasn't too disruptive to us, but I could see how that would be a challenge for some folks who may have small children.

  • Scott was very responsive over email and connected me with the property manager. The property manager is literally a 1 min walk from the condo and has the ability to pickup and dropoff keys even outside business hours. The location was excellent and we could walk to the beach within a minute and there were plenty of great restaurants nearby. The supermarket is right next door along with a bank 1 min walk away if you want to get some colones but every place took dollars too. The unit was on the 3rd floor (no elevator) and was spacious. Had no problems with the place and was great to have AC units in each of the 3 rooms and the living room. There are a few clubs nearby that play pretty loud music on certain nights but this is what was expected with this location so close to all the happening spots. Would easily come stay here again if I come to Tamarindo again!

  • Scott's place was great. The location was perfect and it was exactly what we were looking for. It was nice and secure and the night security guards were great. Tamarindo (email hidden) and I would definitely stay here again.

  • Scott's place was in a great location. Only minutes away from town and the beach. It was also very large! His property manager was also a pleasure to work with!

  • Is a really good place, central, close to everything in Tamarindo (especially the beach). The place was really clean when we arrive and with all the require stuff if you are planning to cook. When we arrive one of the air conditioning units was not working, we call the person in charge of the apartment and told us that the technician would be the in an hour, we wait for him for 2 hours and did not arrive, The next day when we were not there somebody fixed the air conditioning unit, I did not expect that someone was entering the apartment when we were not there.
    From the rest, was excellent, really good option in Tamarindo.

    Hi Jonathan - thank you for the details on the AC unit. For the inconvenience, I would like to offer a free night to you should you ever want to return. Same applies to any family or friends that you refer. thank you!

  • We found the condition of this apartment very disappointing, and not as portrayed in the photos. There appeared to be significant deferred maintenance, to include walls in need of painting, broken floor tiles, a broken window fixed with duct tape, and a missing remote for one of the three bedroom's air conditioners. It is a three bedroom apartment, but only one room can comfortably be slept in, due to no air conditioning in one, and the fact that the arc light from from adjacent supermarket shines right in the window (at eye level in bed) in the master bedroom.
    Overall the apartment did not feel clean or pleasant, so much so that we left after spending only one night of our three night reservation there.
    The property manager said he understood our concerns and would reach out to the owner and did not do so. When we reached out to the owner, he was unaccomodating.
    All of that said, if you are looking for a relatively cheap place to crash and interested in spending all day at the beach, this place could be ok for you. If, however, you're looking for something that feels homey, I would not recommend it.

    Hosting Lauren was my first bad experience on Airbnb in my 3+ years experience. Everything started fine but about a week after check out she sent me a message saying that she needed to leave early and only stayed one night. She began with "we got our car broken into" and then switched her story into "your place was not as advertised and in bad shape". Lauren had the opportunity to either call or email me during her stay and or have my local property manager do the same, none of which occurred. I sympathized with Lauren and said for a penthouse level 3 bedroom condo for $125 per night, 1 block to the beach, how could you not be happy like my past hundreds of guest? I even offered to send her a refund of 45% even though she was beyond the cancellation policy but she refused to accept that refund. I think Lauren probably came into Costa Rica with the wrong expectation of price / amenities and or had a change of plans and wanted to make up problems so she would could get a full refund post cancellation policy. I caution renting to this person and hope this not deter anyone from enjoying our families vacation condo. Thanks.

  • A perfect place to stay in Tamarindo. Great central location in Tamarindo (2 min walk to beach), rooms are a good size and very clean throughout. Air cond. in every room and free Wi-Fi are great features. Scott was very good with communication prior to stay and Kattia the property manager, was also very good with answering our questions during our stay. We would definitely recommend this place and would book again in future.

  • My friends and I had a great time at Scott's place in Tamarindo! The beds are super comfortable and it's so close to the beach! Literally around the corner! In the afternoon the sun hits the pool area so once you're fed up of the sand and the tours saleswomen, the pool is the place to be! Thanks so much to Scott for letting us (email hidden)! PS. Grocery store is literally outside the door.

  • I loved Scott's place! I traveled with 3 other ladies and there was more than enough room for us to be comfortable. The condo is in a perfect location for us as we didn't rent a car and were able to walk to the beach and any bar or restaurant. Tamarindo is full of life and friendly people. Traveling outside of the town is easy as well as there are any number of tours that will pick you up and take you wherever you want to go.

    Scott (email hidden)! Very responsive and genuinely interested in making sure we had a great time. I highly recommend (email hidden) and if I ever go back to Tamarindo, his place is where I'll be.
