Friendly, social, love to travel,
Wine & Dine, meeting nice people all over the world.
We really enjoyed our stay with Joah. His house is beautiful and comfortable. We spent a lot of time in the lovely pool! He was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, even giving us a lift to the supermarket because we didn't have a car. The house is perhaps a 20 minute walk to Tamarindo centre where there are lots of bars, restaurants and shops. The beach is also a short walk from the house.
We would highly recommend staying with Joah.
Joah was very nice and very accommodating. He greeted us at the villa to check us in and then came by when we were checking out. He called after our first night to make sure everything was okay, which was very sweet and comforting. He was very accessible in the event whenever we had any questions about the villa. The villa was very nice, clean and well-kept. It is a great location, felt safe throughout our stay. Close to Tamarindo and other beaches, but apart from the crowds. Kitchen was well equipped, which came in very handy. The pool is small but nice for an evening dip!
My friend and I had a marvelous stay at Johanny's place. We arrived in the evening, and all the candles in the house and outside by the pool were lit - really beautiful! The house is amazing, the kitchen is so practical, we saved a lot of money cooking ourselves instead of going out to eat. Johanny is very helpful in suggesting where to go and what to do in and around Tamarindo - he also lent us a guide. If he's around, he won't hesitate to chill with you outside by the pool, maybe a shot or two or three of limoncello will be shared... :) I had an incredible experience in Tama and being in this house had a lot to do with it! Thanks Johanny and see you soon I hope!
Johanny was a great host. He was very friendly and made us feel very welcome in his home. He was happy to help with local knowledge and even helping us by providing recommendations for the next stage of our trip.
The villa is beautiful and located a short taxi ride ($4) from Tamarindo. The area is very quiet and peaceful and we felt very secure.
We stayed in the room with a private balcony which was lovely, but the sea view is only slightly visible through the trees at this time of year!
The only critisism I would have is the price of the air con ($15-$20 extra per night). This was made clear to us before we paid so was not deceiving, but we did feel this was a very expensive price to pay.
Overall we had a great stay and I would definately recommend this villa.
This place is awesome! Highly recommend it. The house is spacious, with a nice pool area, grill, and surround stereo system. The owners, Brent and Joah, are super friendly and were very helpful in organizing everything. The house is located in Langosta, inside a secure gated community. 4 minute drive to Tamarindo, where there's a lot of surfing shops and fun restaurants and bars. If you want to relax and have a good time in Langosta/Tamarindo, this is the place to go.
The reservation was canceled 22 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Beautiful place, awesomely close to the beach. Short walk to Tamarindo centre. Real relaxing, would come back in a heartbeat!
We spent 3 nights in the villa of Joah and Bert. Villa is located in the luxury area of Tamarindo on the playa Lagosta. The place is really quite and safe. Villa is beautiful and nice decorated. We had a big room with terrace and private bathroom. The only thing that all places to eat, to drink and have fun are on the playa Tamarindo. But if you have a car it's not a problem because it's just 5 min driving.
The guys are very welcome, friendly, helpful. They advised us all the best places of Tamarindo where to have a nice dinner and party places.
Thank you, again!!!
Our stay with Bert & Joha in February was amazing! All we have are great things to say about our stay in their beautiful condo in stunning Playa Langosta. My husband, my 5 month old daughter and myself stayed in one of their rooms for 5 nights, the condo is very secure gated area, with a clean kitchen, pool etc. Bert and Joha are very accommodating and made our stay very comfortable and memorable....they were very helpful at recommending places where we should buy our groceries, what restaurants to eat at and where to go on the beach. We recommend their place to anyone, we give it a 5 star! We will hopefully come back next year, Pura Vida!
Bert and Joah made me feel so at home in Tamarindo from day one and during the 2 months that I stayed with them in their lovely place (which looks like a castle, even better than in the photos). We quickly become good friends and living with them is a wonderful experience! The house is big and located in the calmer part of Langosta only 15 minutes walking from the action in Tamarindo. Langosta beach is 200 meters away and in my oppinion more beautiful, wild and with less people than Tama. Especially in the morning at high tide. You can walk the beach all the way to Avellenas at low tide. Ask Bert for tips about where to eat, go out etc - he knows great places and is super helpful. I have only good things to say about this house and the hosts, really! Please pay attention - it's not a party house, but definitely a place to chill out, relaxe and enjoy. And if you're lucky Bert might cook for you. He's a great cook! And Joah can teach you some latin dance moves. Try to book the bigger room with a balcony, it's the nicest one. There's a supermarket just around the corner but for fresh meat and greens it's better to go to Tama. I loved my stay here and I would happily be roomies again in the future with these guys. This house is warm, welcoming and full of love for sure and if that sounds appealing to you then this is definitely the best place in Tama. Don't wait, just book it!
