The condo is exactly as described. It is very close to the beach and to the main street in Tamarindo. It was also clean, spacious and comfortable. We loved our time there!
Great spot! Lovely condo!
Un lugar muy cómodo y limpio con piscina y seguridad las 24hrs. La cocina bien equipada y todo el apartamento cuenta con aire acondicionado. Adicionalmente está muy céntrico (hay un supermercado a los 50 mts), y al mismo tiempo, lejos del ruido en la noche. Excelente relación calidad/precio.
Maria is a great host, the apartment is large and spacious and well fitted out. We wanted to self cater and had no problem in doing this with what was provided. One super market is less than 50m away and another (arguably better) a couple of streets away. Its a gated complex with a guard so feels secure. Its up a quiet street but less than a minutes walk from the heart of Tamarindo so is really ideally located. Would recommend. Our bags were lost by United flying into Costa Rica (seriously, try and use a different airline), and Maria was really helpful talking to the airport for us and, eventually, bags were delivered.
I had some miscommunication with Maria and didn't end up staying in her condo. She took very long to respond to my initial request, and ended up accepting it late in the day after my group had already made other plans.
However she seemed helpful in helping me get a refund, which I ultimately had to do through AirBNB(and was granted). I'm sure her place is nice and she seems like a good host, but a more timely acceptance of the initial request could have avoided any problems.
Unfortunately, I was only able to join at the tail end of a 4 night stay, but the night I stayed was pleasant. It was perfect for my friend and myself who wanted to stay local and very close to the beach. The reservation was under my name but Maria was very accommodating in arranging for my friend that was arriving earlier. Maria was so very prompt every time I had a question.
Sorry you have had problems with flights and enjoyed so little.
I hope to see you again!!
We had a great experience staying at Maria Fernanda's, she made it very easy for us to get the keys to the apartment even as we arrived late in the evening, it's easy to stay in touch with her through whatsapp as well. The apartment is clean & spacious, and the location is prime! I would definitively stay again at M. Fernanda's apartment.
The description was accurate but our stay was riddled with problems. In the unit we reserved, there was an electric short in the bathroom that shocked us when we used the sink or the shower. So, Maria moved us to another unit. There, we didn't have internet for 24 hours and then we didn't have running water for our last day. While Maria was easy to contact and eager to troubleshoot our problems, it was a frustrating stay for us.
We had a wonderful time at Maria's condo! Although we never met Maria, she was very accessible by text and the Airbnb messenger. She followed up with us throughout our stay to make sure things were going well and was quick to respond to our inquiries.
The condo itself is in a great location, about a block from Tamarindo Beach. There are nearby restaurants, grocery stories, pharmacies, etc. Everything you need is within walking distance. The complex feels very safe; it's gated and there's security. The condo is air conditioned, very quiet at night and there were no mosquitos or bugs whatsoever.
Maria provided us with excellent recommendations and helped us find a great tour group for daily activities. I would recommend staying here to anyone visiting Costa Rica!
Maria was an excellent host and her condo was in great condition with many amenities. The proximity to the beach and area shops/restaurants make this a great location to stay in Tamarindo! You won't be disappointed!
Thanks!! i am glad to know you had a great stay!
