This is the perfect place to come to escape the cold, dreary US winter and relax.
Come stay with us in our Surf House - 2 blocks from a gorgeous surfing beach and 2 blocks from another beautiful swimming beach. I moved down to Costa Rica from NYC (trading in my high heels for flip flops!) to surf every day and enjoy the beach, and I hope you can do the same. We have a large house, and have 2 sunny airy bedrom suites - each with your own private bathroom - available.
The huge sunlit master bedroom overlooks our private pool, and opens up onto a balcony with a beautiful sun deck, which can be used for reading, relaxing and/or morning yoga! This room has 2 twin beds, or they can be combined to make 1 larger queen size bed. The smaller of the 2 bedrooms has 2 full size beds - as bunk beds.
This is a great solution if you're traveling with your family. You can take over our 2nd floor and the 2 rooms are very close, but not adjacent! You can have piece of mind, knowing everyone is in 1 space, but you won't hear any commotion.
Playa Langosta is a upscale area that's part of Tamarindo. It's a great neighborhood to stay in to enjoy Costa Rica, surf at the nearby breaks in Langosta, and walk on Tamarindo Beach, while being a little separate from Tamarindo. (In other words, you won't hear loud music at night from the clubs!) It's a 1/2 mile walk to Tamarindo to go out and you're welcome to use our bikes while you're here.
Breakfast included. We will serve you a delicious hot, hearty typical breakfast. Please let us know if you have any food preferences or needs.
Tamarindo is an amazing place to surf. If you are interested in surfing or learning to surf, my husband is a professional surf instructor and would be happy to take you on surf tours to the fantastic surf breaks nearby, or to give you lessons - if you're just starting out.
Lastly, I'm from NYC. My husband is a Costa Rican surfer. This combination ensure we'll be able to pamper you - the way you want - but you can also get a taste of the REAL Costa Rica. If you're here during the US Winter, we'll can take you to a typical Costa Rica Fiesta, including the Rodeo. It's a LOT of fun and very authentic.

Great trip! Carlos, Helena and Margaret were terrific hosts. The house is only a short walk to both Playa Langosta and Playa Tamarindo, and just a little further to Tamarindo proper. Peaceful and quiet, but with access to anything you might want. Highly recommend!
Helena and Carlos were fantastic hosts. The four of us had gone to Costa Rica a bit unprepared (we were busy writing exams beforehand) but Helena and Carlos really stepped up and helped us out. They were more than willing to give us suggestions and help us set up any activities we wanted to do. And Carlos gave us a great suf lesson to boot!
The place is in a great location. It is a 10-15 minute walk from central Tamarindo, which was nice. The walk every night was great--and being close to the action but a bit detached was nice. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were nice, the showers worked well, and the breakfast (fruit, eggs, coffee) was so good. A very nice start to every morning! Oh, also, you have access to a fridge and the family kitchen (if you want to do some cooking for yourself like we did)
In short, the four of us would all highly recommend Helena, Carlos, and little Margarita's (their daughter) house. You will not be disappointed!
