Fransico was a great host. We didin't rent a car, so he came pick us up to go to the appartement. He gave us a pretty good map to help us find everything around and he offer us towels. We found that the appartement look was ok. There is a beautiful pool with a amazing view to a valley. However, the appartement was not very clean. Particularly the sheets was stained. Also, the kitchen was not very functional, there is no spoon, no toaster (he said that the toaster was underneet the sink but we check and didin't see it) no soap to make the dishes and no hot water in the bathroom. The place is very good located, but the next time we will probably go to an hostel (there are so many around) they are cheaper and offer the same type of service. Tamarindo is a springbreakers kind of place, it was very fun and the beach was amazing!!
Frank was a great host. He met us promptly, gave us the tour, showed us what we needed to know and was there for whatever we needed or any questions that needed answering. We had a comfortable stay. We stayed for 3 weeks and Frank always had something for us to go check out. It was above and beyond just a place to stay. Frank and the neighbors in the complex made our holiday stay awesome with invites for xmas dinner and parties for New Year's Eve , at the apartment and on the beach and in town. The complex is very safe and secure and quiet. It's just far enough away from the downtown noise that you can get some sleep. The A/C in the bedroom was great. The pool is great to have steps from your back door. Great to cool off anytime of day/night. You can swim, drink, sun tan, BBQ. We had a rented vehicle at our disposal which was a big plus for us. The unit is a short walk to town. We'd definitely stay here again.

I stayed for (3) nights in April by myself. Francisco is a great guy. The room is quiet and clean and as described. The location is a short walk to the center of Tamarindo. I would definitely stay at Francisco's place again...and I would recommend it to any one person or couple looking for an affordable Costa Rican spot!
We had a little trouble finding this wonderful place, so make sure you get a good description before you go! But
Frank even tried to reach us on our (german!!) cellphone and at least we could enjoy this nice place: Nice, HUGE pool, spacios bed, WELL WORKING A/C.
If going to Tamarindo: We highly recommend a stay here!
A little off the beaten path but the pool and apartment which is fully equipped with a kitchen is well worth it.
Frank was a great host and even stopped by to bring us candles one night where the wind had briefly knocked out the power for a few minutes.
We were there for 2 nights and enjoyed being able to walk out of our room right on to the deck with the pool.
Francisco's apartment was perfect for our week-long stay in Tamarindo! It was clean, comfortable and looked just as the pictures did. The pool was awesome for cooling off during the hot afternoons. Francisco was a perfect host, too. He brought us to the grocery store, gave us a quick tour of town and even managed to set us up with a surf instructor for lessons! He was easy to communicate with. This place is perfect for 1 or 2 people who want comfortable and affordable accommodations in Tamarindo!
I really enjoyed my stay in Tamarindo and the apartment had many good points: It's large and comfortable for 2 persons, it has A/C in the bedroom and you can jump anytime into the pool, which is just in front of the living room. It takes about 10mn walk to the center of the city (ask about the shortcut). Francisco was very helpful telling us where to eat, being flexible about the check-in and check-out times, and getting us a deal to spend the afternoon on the boat cruise, including drinks, food and snorkeling. Thanks a lot!!
Casa la loma was simply great! The appartment is very secure and spacious. Very well maintained property and a super great swimming pool when you to need to shake off the heat! Frank was a great host! The appartment is just a few minutes walk to the main strip and the beach which also gives you a little peace and quiet from the downtown party scene. Thanks again Frank, we would definitely come back again!

Francisco was an excellent host. He arranged to pick us up and helped getting around Tamarindo. The Apartment was great and we really enjoyed staying at his place. He went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay.
Francisco and his partner were a true delight to have as guests in my home. Their presence lit up the house with joy and goodwill. He is also an Airbnb host in the Tamarindo area of Costa Rica. If he is half as good a host (of which I have no doubt) as he was a guest I would recommend anyone planning to visit that area to contact him.
I and my staff look forward to their return and expect that I will soon be visiting him in Costa Rica.
