First of all Brenda and Brian are awesome. They setup the shuttle pickup from Liberia Airport and all we had to do was find the sign with our name on it and off we went without a problem. We got in later at 9pm and they were still nice enough to meet us to give us the keys and show us how everything worked.
Also they baked us a cake how cool is that?! Awesome for breakfast haha!
The place is very nice as shown in the photos and walking distance to all the beaches, restaurants, bars,shops, and banks.
Absolutely no complaints i recommend this place to anyone who comes to tamarindo and wants a secure place to rest your head and keep your things while you're out checking out this beautiful place.
The pictures do not do this place justice! Beautiful condo, super clean, with really nice clean bathrooms (very important to me).
Brenda and Brian were great hosts, they met us at the condo the night we arrived and took the time to give us recommendations on what to do, what beaches to go to, and recommended we eat at the restaurant right next door, which we wound up going to 3 of our 4 nights because it was so good.
The location is great, just a few minutes walk to the beach and places to go out at night. Tamarindo was great and looking forward to staying here again when I come back!
Brenda and Brian's condo was spacious, clean, and perfectly situated just a 5 minute walk to restaurants, bars, the beach, shops, and cabs. The condo is very safe with a gate and built-in alarm system. We loved having the private pool out back to relax after our excursions. Brenda is incredibly accommodating and helped us with a lot of logistics and activity planning. She was always quick to respond via email and called a few times during our trip to check in.
Tamarindo is a great beach town with plenty to do. We were there a full week and never got bored. Brenda will hook you up with a great family run tour company, who shuttled us to and from the airport and took us on a day-long excursion to Rincon de la Viejo. We rarely used cabs in Tamarindo except to go see different beach points. Everything is very walkable and the locals are friendly and willing to offer their recommendations.
This was a very last minute trip and we completely lucked out! I would recommend booking La Ventola to couples, families, or groups!
Response from Brenda:
Hey Stephanie..................just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your review! We hope that next time you come for a visit we can actually meet and get together for a drink..................
My family and I had a great time in Tamarindo and in no small measure, it was because of the convenience and comfort at Brenda's place. though not close to the beach, the place is very central . we enjoyed the live music at the hotel opposite and sampled some excellent food .all very close by.
would definitely recommend for a family. Thanks Brenda!
We would just like to thank Brenda and Brian for the great time we all had in Tamerindo. The house was perfect for us and child friendly which is our most important concern. The place was clean and tidy when we arrived and the boys had a great time on the beach and in the pool so we would definitely recommend to families as everything is within easy walking distance so it was nice to have a couple of beers watching the sunsets and not have to worry about driving home.
My Brother came for easter to Costa Rica, we were looking for a good place that could match as much as possible our modest budget, so I found Brenda's place which is just way too much, very nice and she treat us super!
I really recommend her place, you can't just get something not even similar for the price you pay here.
Great place close to everything. Beautiful apartment, two stories, comfortable, clean and a beautiful pool that is lit at night. Great landlords that are more than willing to help! They even brought us to the bus at 5AM to catch the bus to san jose! Great overall experience and would recommend without a doubt.
