Nick made our group feel incredibly welcome...and he did it all while being out of the country! He was on the spot for all our pre-trip communication and helped us with everything from car rental recommendations to a personal chef to surf instructor. Upon arrival, he arranged for us to meet his girlfriend at the nearby hotel she owns. The meet up, key hand off and house walk through was flawless. Nick's place is immaculately cared for and a gem in Tamarindo. Don't stay anywhere else! It is better than the pictures and description. We rented both the main house and upstairs apartment for one week (6 adults and 3 kids and it was plenty of space). Then my wife and I and another couple stayed in the main house for a second week.
This house was amazing and we still believe it to be the best in town based on price and location. Nick met us on the street and helped direct us to the house. It was gorgeous. Mary came every day and did the dishes, picked up, and any laundry we requested. She was a really sweet, kind lady. We spent most mornings walking straight out to the beach and relaxing or horseback riding on the beach. This house will be a repeat if we come back to Tamarindo!
The studio was amazing, Nick and his staff were always helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here. Definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a cosy place to stay right on the beach.
My Boyfriend & I loved Nick's place. It was just as the description & more! Nick was super responsive before & during our trip. He was so friendly & provided lots of information. The place is clean & right on the beach. It is only about a 10 minute walk into town so it is really quiet but super convenient at the same time. Loved that there is a proper, clean kitchen to cook as well. Mary the helper even helped do our laundry while we were there. If you want to be in the Tamarindo area, definitely stay at Nick's.
We came in last minute after finding that our hotel did not have enough space for our family. Nick was very quick to respond and very, very helpful and very kind. He really went out of his way to take care of us on multiple occasions. The house is fantastic. Perfect, picturesque location at the quiet end of Playa Tamarindo but close enough to the 'bustle' of town to enjoy yourself. Best way to describe our experience-- we are already planning our return and are booking Casa Palmas for that trip.
Casa Palmas was fantastic. It is exactly as expected from the listing, a lovely and comfortable home right on the beach.
Nick went above and beyond to help make our stay fantastic. He arranged shuttles for us and helped us book activities in Costa Rica. I highly recommend the surfing lessons-- the instructor, Alejandro, comes right to the house and brings all the necessary equipment. He's a great teacher and all six of our group (adults who had never surfed before) were up riding waves pretty quickly.
Nick also employs several people to keep the house tidy and comfortable during the stay. All of them were just as warm and welcoming as Nick.
I highly recommend Casa Palmas. I will definitely be back!
Nick's Studio was a perfect spot for my girlfriend and I to stay while in Tamarindo. It is in a great location about 100 yards from the closest restaurant and a 5 min walk to the heart of Tamarindo. We stayed three nights and had a great time. Nick was even kind enough to set up transportation to and from the airport.
Nick couldn't have been a better host, greeted us the moment we got to the house, explained everything we needed to know in full detail. Any time we needed anything he was just a phone call away and helped us find the best adventures and arranging transport.
The place itself is exactly like the pictures, if anything it's better in person! RIGHT on the beach and just a 7-10 minute walk from town, it's secluded enough to have privacy from the hustle and bustle of downtown which was a nice escape at times.
If I come to Tamarindo again, which I am sure I will, I would stay at Nicks place in a heartbeat.
We had a fantastic time at Nick's beachfront house!! Nick is highly accommodating and responsive, so that made the stay very smooth. The loft itself is pretty incredible: it overlooks a beautiful beach scenery, with the beach itself being literally 10 seconds away. The loft is also very cute, and is equipped with an A/C (very important :)) and everything needed for cooking/enjoying cocktails. One of the very special things about staying at this loft was having the helper (who was incredibly nice) clean every day. We really enjoyed coming home to a freshly-cleaned place :) Thank you for everything, Nick!!
The house worked perfectly. The location is fantastic. A quiet part of the beach, but close enough to the action to be ideally located. So close to the beach that you could actually stay on the porch and feel like you are on the beach, but have the comfort of the house. Fantastic. Nick arranged a chef for us one night that was a truly great experience, one of the top five meals of my life and I am something of a foodie. The house worked well with great wi-fi. The help was efficient but unobtrusive. Everything worked great, could not have been more pleased.
