Why eve baldwin chose Playa Langosta

This property is located in the most exclusive neighborhood of Tamarindo on Playa Langosta, otherwise known as "Millionaire's Row" away from the "hostel type atmosphere" of Tamarindo, yet within walking distance to all the nightlife, shopping, beaches, restaurants and more Tamarindo has to offer. Casa Bruja is an exclusive, private, beachfront property consisting of 1 main house and 3 detached private guest bungalows (one Sm studio and two Lg 1-bedroom bungalows) w/private decks & ocean views. We are the only private property adjacent to an eco-park/green zone filled w/banana & coconut palms, flowering vines and tropical fruits, the best of both worlds: Ocean meets Jungle! We have a huge clean swimming pool, outdoor showers (indoor too) hammocks, beach chairs and plenty of space for socializing and/or private + secluded areas for those wanting a quiet place to relax and read a book. We have private, secure, on-site parking, laundry facilities, 24 hour access, WiFi, modern decor, new appliances with tasteful furnishings. Our own private beach path leads you through lush tropical foliage teeming with wildlife like monkeys, Iguanas, exotic Birds and more only steps from the water. Playa Langosta has some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world! Totally convenient and hassle-free with no issues and everything works! Our staff are polite, and friendly, but not "too" friendly" and we're always available to help with any concerns or questions you may have day or night.

The pictures simply cannot do this property justice.

  • 5 of 5

We landed in CR on possibly the hottest day in the last year. Our bungalow was appointed nicely, very clean and cooled off quickly. The infinity pool that looks out over the ocean was perfect. Waking up to the sound of the waves crashing 30 yards away was exactly what we hoped for.

Quiet and somehow still close to Tamarindo nightlife.

Coffee and cupcakes in the morning.

I could go on and on about the wild life, iguanas and birds and a particularly friendly squirrel. We are animal lovers and it was great to have the hosts pets on the property. The one drawback was the difficulty getting out to do things because it was so comfortable to just hang at the house. When we did go out to the beach we had everything we needed, chairs, cooler, umbrella, etc. provided by Eve and readily available. A wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you so much for the amazing review! That's been our best review yet! I'm SO delighted you had such an amazing time here a Casa Bruja Beachfront Bungalows! Casa Bruja is a fairly new listing (Jan 2017) and I'm a fairly new property host so I've had my fair share of "bumps in the road" while renovating and improving my property this past year. My staff and I work very hard to make sure everything is as close to perfect as we can get. Casa Bruja is truly a labor of love and I have the battle wounds to prove it! It really feels good when someone appreciates all the hard work that's been done! It's even more rewarding when guests like yourself leave happy + relaxed having had a wonderful experience and shared memories that last a lifetime. Happy guests: That's what makes it all worth while! Casa Bruja is a magical place and I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully we'll see you again someday.... Pure Vida

Beautiful home, great location

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I stayed at Eve's home in Playa Langosta for a few days. The property was beautiful, clean, had a pool and was right on the beach. The walk into Tamarindo to the main bars/restaurants was about 20 minutes which was perfect for us. One complaint was that it was difficult getting in touch with the host. The night before our reservation we still had not received an email from her with the address. I had to make an international call to customer service to try to receive the information, but they were unable to give it to me, which was very frustrating as we did not know how to get to the home. Luckily we were able to get in touch with the property manager, Cinde, who was extremely sweet and accommodating. We met her at the hotel she owns in town and she drove us to the property and gave us information about good restaurants and bars. We were very happy with the stay, but one thing that might not be clear from the description is that there are three 'casitas' on the property so there might be other families staying there at the same time. There were also housekeepers there daily and the property manager. We were fine with other people there, but a couple or families might be looking for something more private.

Owner's Response: Hi Kelsey, I'm glad you enjoyed casa Bruja and had a wonderful time! I apologize for the communication issue. Being that it was Easter week, I too was on vacation with my family elsewhere. A "welcome email" w/check-in instructions, contact info, local information, etc., was supposed to have been automatically sent to you prior to your arrival. These "welcome emails" are electronically generated and sent to every incoming guest. I don't know why you didn't receive one and I'm sorry for the confusion it initially caused you. Depending on the site you booked with, I've noticed, a few listing sites (won't mention names) fail to sync/consolidate and/or include the same rental info on the several other affiliate "sister/sites" they also manage and as a result the guests don't receive all the information a host thinks they have amply provided. Whatever the case may be, again, I need to address the issue + prevent it from happening again. I'm relieved to know that everything worked out smoothly and my that my amazing property manager Cinde took care of you and treated you right! Hail to Cinde! She's the Best! Yes, there are three different bungalows on the property and depending on the season they may or may not be occupied in accordance with other guests. Often I will have families rent out all three bungalows, so as not to have to "share" with other vacationers considering the ideal location and beautifully property. The housekeeper and gardener are on call during daytime hrs between 8a-3p in order to clean and maintain the landscape as well as attending to any special needs/or requests of guests that may arise. All exclusive beach front properties employ round the clock staff, including guards and ours is no different. Of course if a guest prefers total privacy, that can be easily arranged as we're in the business to provide our customers with the special treatment they deserve and we will always make every effort to accommodate the requests of our guests, no matter how outrageous! Thank you for choosing to stay with us here at Casa Bruja Tamarindo Beach Bungalows and hope you cherish the experiences you had in Playa Langosta always, and the fond memories spent in Costa Rica bring a smile to your face every time you remember them. Hope you can visit us again someday! Pure Vida, The magical Casa Bruja
