Third trip to Costa Rica and I have to say that so far one of my favorite experiences has been my stay at Beach Walk. The location is perfect for someone looking to experience the peace and quiet that Costa Rica has to offer but is looking for a quick location to nearby attractions. The drive into Tamarindo is only about 15 minutes. Lola's (one of my favorite beach side dining locations) is a quick walk down the road on Playa Avellanas; a gorgeous white sand beach. The home itself is absolutely stunning. It has all the modern comforts of home. Its beautiful Spanish style architecture lends itself aesthetically well t its beautiful surroundings. The outside patio is absolutely wonderful. I spent most of my vacation lounging on its outside hammock feeling the warm breeze while I listened to the howler monkeys that live on the premises! The grounds are immaculate and Omar, the local caretaker, takes great pride in making this place shine. The pool was just installed and it was absolutely heavenly for the hot Guanacaste days. Nick, the property owner is a terrific guy. Incredibly helpful and very friendly. He will go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. Its the little things that make a difference between a good stay and a great stay. We had already traveled for a week prior to this stay and when I let Nick know I may need fresh towels he immediately acted and made sure there were fresh towels waiting for us to use. We ended up getting into town quite late and were a little unsure as to how we were going to find the place in the dark. To our surprise, Omar was waiting for us waiving a flashlight to let us know where the house was. When we showed up not only was the place sparkling clean but he had left two bottles of wine waiting for us. Overall a terrific stay. I would highly recommend it and look forward to staying here again.
