The SpaceWelcome to Casa Aigua! Casa Aigua is unlike any other property available for rent in Tamarino, Costa Rica. We just lowered our rate from $550 per night so take advantage! Our property is located only a short 5 minute walk to either the beach or into the heart of town, and features two houses on the property. The main house with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, has been completely renovated to include a very luxurious master bedroom with a master bathroom on-suite. Additionally, there are two separate one bedroom/one bathroom units on the main level of the guest house. These units walk right out to the pool. Our property is ideal for either a single family or two couples, but can accommodate a larger group of friends or family who want to forgo the standard hotel experience.
Our gated property begins with a prominent cast iron main gate which opens to a beautiful flower lined driveway leading to the property. Once on the property, the main house and guest house are set within native landscaping, featuring banana trees, mango trees, and palms. Centered between the two house is a beautiful pool with all new stucco and a brand new deck and privacy fence added January 1, 2016. Depending on the season you may just see the howler monkeys cross right over our roof tops!
The entire property features:
- air conditioning
- cable TV
- maid service
- full linens and towels
- washer and dryer
- oven/fridge/microwave/coffee makers
- new outdoor wood burning grill, for your catch of the day added 1/1/16
- brand new deck and privacy fence added 1/1/16
- brand new table for 12 added May 2016
Heather and I first traveled to Tamarindo on our honeymoon, in July 2012. After visiting Tamarindo we fell in love with the town and the people and purchased the home we honeymooned in to be able to share the experience with others. We have since stayed at Casa Aigua more than 10 times, visiting at minimum twice a year, and have continued the renovation begun by the previous owners. It is our goal for anyone that stays at our place to realize the beauty of Costa Rica and have as wonderful of an experience as we always do.
Our property is quite spacious and will more than adequately house 12 guests. We have an on-site property manager, Charlie, who lives in the upper apartment of the guest house and is there to maintain the property and to better assist you on your visit. Charlie is a Captain on a fishing boat in Tamarindo, and so at times he may be working during the day but we can always assist you if you have questions. Guests are encouraged to have Charlie arrange their tours, ask questions, and even cook a gourmet meal if they are so inclined. Charlie will never hinder your vacation, but is there as a tremendous asset who knows everybody in Tamarindo and can set you up with whatever adventure you seek. Heather and I are very grateful that Charlie is there on all of our visits.
Lastly, please know that we truly do hope that each and every guest that stays with us enjoy their visit. While we are new to VRBO we have already had several guests which have had an incredible time staying at Casa Aigua . The property is beautiful and well maintained. It is also centrally located and is only a 5 minute walk to the beach or to the city center. If you choose to stay with us, we can arrange for transportation for Liberia airport directly to our front door and will promise to deliver an experience that will make you return year after year.
Please do not hesitate to contact us, and please visit our main site.
Our property is perfect for a family vacation, group of friends traveling, or a honeymoon just as we first visited. It goes without saying if you are visiting Costa Rica you should experience several adventures, and Charlie will be there to ensure your adventures are top notch.
Update Jan 2016: We hope you have found the updated information above helpful. We have now owned and rented our property for the last 3 years. We have had some amazing experiences as owners, and some experiences that we have learned from. Casa Aigua is truly our home, and we hope that all guests understand we do the absolute best to continue to improve our property to enhance your experience. To that degree, our home is not a Four Season's resort. It has been our experience, that travelers who are looking for an incredible adventure, to explore Costa Rica, and to enjoy all of its magic are the travelers that are best suited for our home. Those who seek a more catered experience, should look to some of the all inclusive resorts in the area. We continually bring new towels, linens, and housewares to keep our property up-to-date. Additionally, for the 2016 season, we added a brand new deck and privacy fence, a new outdoor wood burning grill, fresh paint, and all new stucco around the pool and grounds. These additions are in addition to previous upgrades: solar hot water heater in the main house, new couches in the main house, all new teak lounge chairs (built by Charlie), and new king bed in an apartment, new window coverings, all new tvs, upgraded internet service, and a new washer and dryer. Update 5/1/2016 we recently added a beautiful custom built table suitable for 8-12, new sleeper-sofa covers for both apartments have been created to match the new couches in the main house, and an increased water capacity for the property for the dry season has been added. We only mention these items to demonstrate our commitment to your experience.
