Beautiful home as advertised and perfect for a large family and/or friends. The house is within walking distance to Tamarindo beach and from the Tamarindo "downtown" but far away enough from the all the downtown noise. Host was quick to answer all my questions and the house maintenance people helped with minor questions/issues. Perfect place to explore the Guanacaste "Gold Coast". Playa Langosta is just a few minutes away and other very pretty beaches like Conchal & Flamingo within 1hr distance. Would love to stay here again and would recommend it to others.
Casa ix Chel is a beautiful, livable house - perfect for a vacation Tamarindo. Two blocks from the beach. Very private, beautiful garden. We lived in the pool, which was cleaned every day. A private bathroom for every bedroom. A large, well appointed house, with two living rooms and lots of seating. All the amenities of home everywhere. Sharon was responsive and charming - a great virtual 'host'. We definitely appreciated our time at this property.
Lovely, spacious home on a pretty quiet street, close to dining and shops and just a couple blocks from the beach. House was in good condition, but the A/C for the main dining/living area was pretty loud and didn't appear to do much in the way of cooling off the room. It needs servicing. The dining room has no windows that open, so it would get uncomfortably warm. This was not the case for the living room, as it had plenty of ventilation despite the non-functioning AC unit. A/C units in the bedrooms all worked great, however, and plentiful ceiling fans throughout the house worked great for cooling things off, as did the pool. There was a small issue with the pool in which water was draining out daily, which meant one had to fill the pool from a hose every morning for a couple hours. This was not a big issue in terms of using the pool, but I hope the owner fixes this because it's an incredible waste of water. One other thing that bothered me was a smell coming from under the sink in the kitchen. It had the smell of dishwater that had sit for a while and soaked into the wood. The odor permeated the kitchen and would sometimes waft into the living space. This should be looked after.
Despite a few minor issue with the house, we enjoyed our stay and were happy with the location and quality of the home. Assuming the owner fixes the A/C unit, leaking pool and smell coming from under the kitchen sink, I would recommend this house for a large family or group of people.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
