The Space

Introductory note. I have had great experiences with AirBNB guests and therefore have lowered my rates to reflect my happiness with the quality of person who comes through this site. Only 10 minutes from Tamarindo and Brasilito, 18 minutes from Flamingo, and 20 minutes from Playa Grande and 25 minutes from Playa Avellanas and Playa Negra, The Oaks is your perfect base for surfing, fishing, horseback riding, volcano tours and much more. Its location on the main paved road between Huacas and Villa Real, midway between the Marriott resort at Hacienda Pinilla and the Playa Paradisus resort at Reserva Conchal, gives you all the options that the Gold Coast of Guanacaste offers, including the restaurants and night life of Tamarindo, five great surf beaches and snorkeling at the clear shell beach of Playa Conchal. The Oaks distinctive entrance of three stylized twisting cement towers inspired by Gaudi represent the three species of oak trees native to Costa Rica, two of which are found on site, along with hummingbirds, butterflies and howler monkeys. An on-site concierge service helps with car rentals, tours and spa services. Condo 89 is a beautiful two bedroom two bath 900 square foot unit located beside the large walk-in beach style pool with swim-up bar and barbecue area, soothing infinity edge waterfall and underwater fibre optic lights. This second floor unit boasts two private balconies, one overlooking the pool with a table and two chairs for morning tea or evening drinks, and the other with a view of the monkeys just 50 yards away. The full kitchen comes complete with granite countertops, cedar cabinets, a full size Frigidaire stainless steel refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, and microwave and a ceramic glass top range.

The bright and spacious living room is furnished with a dining area and table and chairs for four persons, a sofa bed that can sleep two additional people, for a maximum occupancy of six persons, and a 50 inch flat panel Panasonic TV and DVD player. CableTica provides over 100 cable channels, including ABC and CBS's Miami affiliates, CNN, Fox, CNBC and ESPN. The unit also has free high speed wireless internet. The master bedroom has a queen bed with pillow top mattress, a 42 inch flat panel TV and overhead ceiling spot reading lights. The master bedroom has a private master bath with shower and jacuzzi.

  • Our stay at the Oaks was excellent. We had the pleasure of being there for a month. The condos are very well equipped with anything and everything you need. Robert and Alejandro go out of their way to make sure your experience is the best possible. If you stay here for an extended period of time you will want to rent a car which is easy since there are a ton of rental companies around town. It is a little ways outside of Tamarindo, about a 10 minute drive but it adds to the relaxation apsect being away from the hustle and bustle of the town. We would highly recommend staying here.

  • Me and my husband had a really good time staying at the Oaks. The apartment is just like the pictures. Very modern,clean and includes everything you need with a gorgeous pool just outside. Is a good startpoint to explore Guanacaste. The best way to get around is by car. We defently recommend to stay at the Oaks. Robert and Alejandro gave us the best tips to make our days speacial. If there´s anything you want to know they are the best to ask!

  • The Oaks is an awesome place to stay at, highly recommend the place. Robert was very helpful and gave my friends and I so many good tidbits about Costa Rica. Would certainly come back to stay at the Oaks. You will not be disappointed!!!! Must need car to get around, but everything is close with a car.

About
I am the developer of The Oaks and still have 5 condos available for vacation rentals, all with the best location around our largest of three pools. I found Costa Rica eight years ago and love it, especially the laid back sunny area where we live near Tamarindo. Key word, near. I married Roxana, my Tica wife, a little over a year ago, have two great Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs and in previous lives have been a lawyer and banker. From Richmond, VA, Miami and Southern California, "retired" in Costa Rica.
