My brother and I were looking for a place to stay during our week in Tamarindo, and we were lucky to find a cabina with a kitchen, private bathroom, and two beds at Harry's. The location is perfect- it's a short walk to the beach and downtown, and far enough from the bars that it's very quiet. We went during...

We traveled to the Tamarindo area in mid February and spent an incredible 7 nights at Harry's El Escondite. From the second our van pulled up, Harry came out to greet us and gave us a very thorough tour of the property and made us feel right at home from the get go. He was always around to answer any...

My boyfriend and I had an exceptional time at Harry's. Harry was an excellent host, he makes sure you know what to do and where to go. Perfect location, minutes from the beach and restaurants but just far enough that you get peace and quiet during the evening. Our time here was great and we would definitely stay again.

My husband and I spent two relaxing weeks in the Orange Cabina. We couldn't have asked for a better place. The room was clean and comfortable. The layout allows for privacy, but also allows you to meet and mingle with the other guests. We enjoyed meeting everyone and appreciated their willingness to share their Tamarindo knowledge with us. Harry is...

Spent 4 nights in Tamarindo at this lovely spot. Our host and owner of the property, Harry, was very welcoming and provided us with helpful information re dining and surfing. The cabina was clean and comfortable, everything we needed was on site or just a short walk down the hill. We hope to be returning soon. Love from Canada!

We only spent 3 days at Harry's, and regretted every day that we spent in Costa Rica at places OTHER than Harry's. We are already anticipating our next visit to Tamarindo, and Harry's is the only place for us! Keywords for Harry's: Clean. Simple. Quiet. Fun. Easy. Pura Vida. Kevin and Jenine. See you next time Harry! give Don't (the...

Harry has created a little private paradise on the hills close to the beach. Always a pleasure to stay here with a really cool owner and a chance to mingle with different guests. The attractive pool really helps me during my stays in Costa Rica as the average temperature is often higher than my comfort zone.

Stayed 2 weeks during the Holiday season and even if Tamarindo gets crazy during that time, we were still able to relax at Harry's place. We did appreciate having movies to watch in the evening, after a long day at the beach and bikes were very helpful to get to the grocery store. Thanks Harry, we will probably see you...

We were in Tamarindo the week after Christmas, one of the two busiest weeks of the year. Traffic was lined up on the main road, crowds out every night, but Harry's was our little island of tranquility, surrounded by trees, only five minutes from the main road with its restaurants, stores, and bars. Harry made us feel quite welcome, around...
