A two bedroom beach cabina including a full kitchen. Its perfect for a couple or two couples and or small family traveling together.

The space

Quaint affordable apartments... Casa Camaleon is the perfect location for a couple or even a family traveling together. The location is quiet, tropical and steps from the beach sand as well as the famous surf break "Playa Grande". Our private and fenced property, in the gated community of Palm Beach Estate, is nestled amongst huge teak trees where you will find the apartments to be the ideal distance to town and beaches. We are away from the bustle but only a short walk to all things busy when you need it. Our newly renovated apartments are fully equipped with kitchens, private bathrooms with hot water, split a/c units, overhead ceiling fans, private porches with dining tables for meals outside. Free wireless internet. Outdoor rain shower. Surfboard and bicycle rentals available onsite.

We also have a local fish truck, organic fruit and veggie truck and German bakery truck that all come by on separate days during the week. Their stuff is fresh and always good. A mini super is conveniently located just a short walk from Camaleon Cabinas. The Supermarket has just what you need to stock your kitchen. If you want to go to Tamarindo for shopping or exploring etc. there is a water ferry which you can catch from the beach where you surf within a 6-8 minute walk from Camaleon, for about a dollar a person and you get dropped right in Tamarindo.

What better scenario than befriending your Airbnb hosts!!! Kristi helps run the rentals for Sharr and because of them, we had an awesome experience in Palm Beach. Kristi is the best!! Responsive, caring, accomodating, professional and a whole lot of help and fun. This is a super chill location minutes from beach access - fun, safe neighborhood to ride bikes - gorgeous surrounding beaches and water taxi away from Tamarindo. If you're looking for something a lot more relaxed in the Tamarindo area - this is where you should stay!

I came with a group of 8 friends and we rented two of the casas. We had an amazing time and enjoyed having a place where we could relax, cook, and hang out together that was so close to the beach. Sharr was helpful in providing pre-trip directions and Murat, the onsite manager, was extremely welcoming. Great location with privacy and space that is located just a short walk away from the beach, a small grocery store, and whatever else you may need.

Case Cameleon is in the Playa Grande area which is great for surfing but is somewhat undeveloped and isolated. The bed was comfortable but it's a no-frills experience. The nature of the rooms make it easy for critters to enter and you'll find it difficult to keep them out of the room, specifically in the kitchen. Murat- the property manager was very nice and helpful. He stepped in to assist us when we had issues with our rental car. He also helped me get my laundry expedited and talked us through navigating the area.

Good relaxation, good animals, good water,a/c and wifi. owner was very helpful. Walking distance to grocery, restaurants and beach. I haven't been to Grande in 20 years, so glad to see a utopian community down there at the end of the dirt road, to me this is what costa rica is about.

Had a great experience! Sharr and Murat, the property manager was super helpful with things to do, arranging tours, renting surfboards, and answering all of our questions right away. Do the turtle nesting tour, we really enjoyed that. The area and beach is super quiet and chill, which was perfect for my boyfriend and I. Head over to Tamarindo for a night out and good restaurants. It's better to have a car to get around to different areas and to buy food. The casa is nice and simple. Don't leave any food in the kitchen because the ants will get to it asap.

Casa Camaleon was such a sweet little getaway and was just as expected. It was clean and quiet and secure with bright colorful hammock out front and little table on our little patio where we enjoyed every breakfast. Murat, the property manager greeted us and was so generous and helpful. He gave us day trip tips and local info and advice and checked in with us periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you Murat! There was a tiny grocery store with a couple minutes walk to buy salt and pepper, coffee and other food items, bug spray etc that you need. All in all, a great experience...we will be back!

Casa Camaleon is beautiful (built with love and care and a wonderful eye for style): quite, by the beach, part of a wonderful little community, and near "the big city" of Tamarindo! My husband and I could not have asked for a better place to stay! We particularly enjoyed the fruit/veggie truck that visits the Casa twice a week and provides a private farmers market. We also really enjoyed Seven/Wil-Mart/the Cave and the local massage options.

If I can surf every day its a day well spent. The ocean is a place that lets you leave feeling new. I cannot live without it.
I am so grateful to have found my home here. It is near perfect paradise!
