Just an awesome place to spend a few days in the sun. Gorgeous and spacious apartment right on a beautiful beach. Can enjoy the sunset, the beach/ocean views, monkeys, and iguanas right from the apartment. Nick was a great host and set us up with surf lessons, volcano trips, horse riding and turtle watching trips all at the last minute. Honestly couldn't be a better location. It feels private and a little remote but is a short walk along the beach from great bars and restaurants and an easy walk to the grocery store. Appreciated the security guard at night. My girlfriend and I would definitely go back as soon as possible. Loved it.
Nick was a very friendly and accommodating host. His place was beautiful, clean, and located right on the beach. We loved waking up every morning and looking on the incredible view of the waves right outside our back door. Little luxuries like having a land line telephone there to make local calls, and having a mini super just right up the street were very nice touches as well. The grounds that Nick's casa were located on were gated and very secure and on Playa Langosta which was much more peaceful and less populated than the main strip of Playa Tamarindo, though still an easy walking distance into town. If given the chance we would love to stay at Casa Palmas again.
Nick's studio was an awesome compliment to a stellar trip to Tamarindo and the Guanacaste region. The private beach access and on-site security was well appreciated.
Nick made us feel very welcome and at home, took care of all airport transfers to/from the airport, and helped us with an AMAZING surf instructor (Alejandro from Seafari was awesome!) Very clean, safe, and well-attended to house just steps from the beach. This particular beach is very quiet, but just minutes away from the action (or even quieter beaches, if you walk the opposite way). The pictures are exactly how it's described, the perfect location for Tamarindo. Maybe a 5-10 minute walk to the happening restaurants and bars in Tamarindo, but as another guest may have mentioned, our favorite spot was just right on the back patio with a beer.
We just returned from Tamarindo after staying in Casa Palmas for one week.
The house is beautiful and 'as advertised'. Steps from the beach and contained all the necessary amenties. We had a little trouble finding the place, but Nick responded promptly by phone and met us in town and we followed him to the house.
The house was very clean and working properly. Nick spent about half an hour going through all the features of the house. it contained everything we needed to stay comfortably, and we were given many recommendations of both places to eat and things to somewhere we were there.
The house is right on the beach, at the quieter western edge of Tamarindo , and we were able to walk to restaurants along the beach.
My family had a very enjoyable and relaxing time at this property, and would not hesitate to return to exactly this spot for another vacation.
Nick was a great host on our first visit to Costa Rica! The place was just as described and had an excellent view and access to the beach. Nick set us up with surfing lessons right away and was available whenever we needed anything.
Wow - Casa Palmas was the best! We have traveled to Costa Rica many times, and this this without a doubt the best place where we have stayed. Not only is the house incredibly comfortable, but the location is truly spectacular.
Nick was a great host, and we will definitely be coming back to stay there on our next trip.
This is the best place in Costa Rica. We took day trips but realized we were in the best place right on our porch. Nick is a wonderful host and his team that takes care of the place are friendly and give a feeling of home. We will be back!
Nick was great! The house was fantastic. I did not see online or while walking the beach a better house. Great value for the price. We plan on returning often.
Nick and Helene were fantastic hosts. They made sure all of our needs were met, gave great advice about local surf spots, and were super friendly! The apartment was clean, comfortable, and (literally) steps from the beach. More like a 1BR than a studio--very spacious. Thanks for a great stay!
