We are still on cloud 9 from our wedding week at Casa Puros Dieces! We are from LA and had our destination wedding at Casa Puros Dieces. It was the perfect place for our group of 12 to hang out, relax, bond and have our wedding ceremony and reception.
The house is very spacious and so unique with its outdoor common areas, the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean and those amazing Costa Rican sunsets! The house has several split levels with the common areas being on the main level. Every bedrooms has its own AC unit and private bathroom. The bedrooms are spread out between the main level, middle and lower levels so each has a good amount of privacy.
The house is in a great location, quiet, safe and a short walk to the beach, surf shops, retail stores, restaurants and bars. The road up to the house is a steep dirt road so the walk down is easy, but steep on the way back. We rented a couple golf carts for easy access to and from the house. I would definitely recommend a golf cart, taxi, or car at night since the road is dark and steep.
Danny, Dinorah and the rest of the full time house staff were incredible. They came every day and cleaned the whole house, top to bottom. It was always spotless.
The kitchen was fully equipped to accommodate all 12 of us. One of the best things we did was hire Cris and Rick from Sunset Catering in Tamarindo to come to the house to cook breakfasts and dinners for the week. Their food was amazing! It was such a treat to have home cooked meals at the house and not have to worry about going grocery shopping and planning out meals.
The staff at Stay in Tamarindo, especially Adriana and Cristina were wonderful. We communicated via email and they were always happy to help answer all of our questions and concerns. We can't thank them enough for helping us plan a fun stress free, and memorable week in paradise!
Can't wait to go back! Pura Vida!
A large group of us stayed here for 5 nights for a wedding and really enjoyed our stay. We had a pre wedding cocktail party here. The property is amazingly beautiful with an infinity pool overlooking the ocean. The staff was very helpful. Dinora, Jessica and Danny took care of us very well. (It's wonderful to have someone cleaning up after you!) We arranged for a catering company, Tamarindo catering To come in and make breakfast for us each day which was a great idea. Roman and Maura made great breakfast! They also catered our cocktail party with excellent service and delicious food.
The rooms were comfortable but could use more lighting. There are a number of internet zones which is great but the internet service was a bit cantankerous (this is Costa Rica!) We absolutely loved the house but there were a few glitches - the dryer did not work well, the hot tub did not heat up. (They said a part was on order). There is an ugly cell tower between the house and the ocean (but we all want good cell reception!!), the road up to the property is a rutted dirt road which can't really be fixed until after the rainy season. We rented golf carts which really worked out well.
The staff and our rental contact were very responsive and helpful. We arranged for massage therapists to come in two different days and do two massages at a time. They were fabulous!
The floors are cement and got very slick with water from the pool. We had a toddler with us and the house is not toddler friendly. There isn't a lot you can do with stairs and living rooms open to the pool but if you want to bring a toddler you should be aware. Constant vigilance is required!
The place is really amazing and beautiful and we would come again in a heartbeat. We had a wonderful time. We watched birds and butterflies and iguana from the pool and could hear the howler monkeys. It truly is a paradise!
This house is a dream. The bedrooms are very nice. The common area is awesome! Outdoor kitchen and living rooms right off the pool was great. Two refrigerators and all the cooking utensils you could ask for. The pool is gorgeous and we had a family of monkeys visit us one day just 10 feet away in the trees. There is also a full staff that we were not expecting but were very happy to have. Two ladies cleaned for us for 5-6 hours per day, a handy man was there to fix anything we needed and a security guard sat out front all night. They were all very nice and we hardly noticed them working around the house. The hot tub was not working the first two days but they were able to get it fixed for the second two nights we were there. No big deal at all. Just can't say enough about this place and how much we enjoyed it.
Hello! We stayed at this villa for a buddy-moon after a wedding in San Jose. We simply loved the villa. It is really big. We were 14 people and there was so much space that you had lots of privacy. The bottoms are so beautiful as most of them are partically open air. The rooms are simply decorated in minimalist style which complements the villa perfectly. The villa is in Balinese style which makes it very relaxing. The view from the pool is amazing and the location couldn't be better as it is 10min walks from the beach. The staff is also very nice and Adriana from the central office is amazing. I hope to be back!
We had a group of 12 stay for a week. Tons of space, beautiful home, well maintained. Both the common areas and bedrooms were beautiful. The pool and the view of the ocean are priceless. Extremely well equipped kitchen. Daily laundry and cleaning are included in the price. Wireless internet worked well throughout the property. Jorge and his crew were fantastic - unobtrusive but very helpful when needed, friendly, and kept the place spotless, which was no small task considering we had 7 children in our group.
We've rented vacation homes in many tropical locations and this was the most beautiful property we've ever rented. Highly recommended for both the home and the people.
