BEST VALUE for something truly nice in PLAYA GRANDE. Our beautifully appointed, fully furnished home provides a wonderful and relaxing getaway in a private, gated, quaint, laid back beach community separated from the congestion of Tamarindo. It is within a short 5 minute walk to a beautiful, pristine surfing beach, several great restaurants, bars, and a grocery. Tiled roof, floors and counter tops throughout. Relax on the covered patio where Iguanas and colorful birds perch and will eat from your hand. Monkeys and parrots play overhead. Also, within walking distance, a beautiful estuary provides fishing, boating, and offers a water taxi which takes you on a 5 minute ride to Tamarindo for dining, dancing, gambling, shopping and souviners. You may also choose to walk to Tamarindo via the beach (possible only at very low tide) . Dual vanities in bathroom. Maid service included (Mon/Wed/Fri)! We invite you to stay in comfort while you are in Playa Grande. Mi casa es su casa). AWESOME BEACH!!!!! Read our reviews. Two beach-cruiser type bicycles are included with this rental. Casa Mambo is close enough to the beach to hear the waves crashing when they are big! It is an easy and very short walk to the beach from the house (or an even quicker bicycle ride),

I have been going to Costa Rica at least once a year since 1987 and continue to love this place tremendously! Always look forward to my next trip to Playa Grande. My parents also love Playa Grande and stay at the house for a full month each year.
Hank Townsend purchased this villa in 1999
Most pristine beach in all of Costa Rica in my opinion. Very laid back community which you will feel apart of very quickly. I hope you get to experience Casa Mambo.
'feels like my own little Costa Rica home' as stated by one of our many regularly returning guests.
Since the photos were taken, we have installed drapes and curtains throughout the house for your privacy.
Me and two buddies rented out Casa Mambo for two weeks and had a blast! The house was excellent and the maids were great too. We had air conditioning in each room which was just another great perk of this place! Would highly recommend for anyone who is looking for close proximity to the beach and world class surf. The waves are great all summer with off shore winds in the morning and barrels up and down the beach. The store is right next to the house and the food at both Restaurants (Los Malinches and The Great Wallitinis) is awesome. We can't wait to go back again next summer
Who knew you could find two and a half miles of glorious golden sand and surf on the pacific and share it with just a few crusty crabs and plummeting pelicans.Hanks costa rican haven was just steps from the beach,Wil-marts,surf shop and 4 different restaurants.My personal highlights boogie boarding while the big boys strutted their stuff surfing,eating best ever beer,tacos and fresh brownies at Taco staron the beach,french toast at Bula bula's,pizza at cafe del pueblo,and crocodile cruise up river,we saw so many amazing herons.The costa ricans were amazingly friendly,I cannot wait to return to this slice of paradise and have a mouth watering slice of pineapple.
Hank and Shawna were great to work with. Responsive and helpful. We love Costa Rica as a great chance to escape the snow of the North. The twice-a- week maids were very nice and it felt so good to have a clean place. Bikes were nice, but could use some repair. Overall, a nice place to hang out.
We were looking for a location that was out of the noise and activity of Tamarindo. Casa Mambo was a great value as we got a two bedroom for about the same price as a hotel in Tamarindo. Even though it was one of four properties sharing a pool. It was very private. There is a little grocery store just around the corner where we were able to stock up on drinks and snacks. We really didn't cook much at the house as there is a restaurant (Bula Bula) nearby that has a fun happy hour and the food is quite good. I would stay here again.
My family and I had a wonderful stay during the 2016 Christmas Holiday! The surfing at Playa Grande was awesome and just a short walk from the condo. Lots of places to eat and drink within walking distance and Tamarindo is about 30 min. away by car a little closer if you walk down the beach and catch the water taxi. My nine year old daughter loved it! Pura Vida!
CASA Mambo was a great spot for us. There were multiple restaurants within walking distance and the beach was just a 5 minute walk. It is one of 6 casitas that sit around a pool but the foliage around the houses is thick enough that it doesn't feel like they are very close other than the one immediate neighbor. When we were there only one other casita appeared to be occupied so we had the pool to ourselves each time we went out. The drive from Playa Grande to Tamarindo is kind of far, but there are water taxis on the beach that will take you across the estuary for just $1 per person. Hank and his property managers were great in answering any questions we had. The only downside was the dirt road to the house, it was pretty bad with potholes that were flooded some days, so we were glad to have an SUV- some of the locals we talked to out there said the road was supposed to be repaired soon so hopefully it's not an issue much longer. Overall a wonderful experience.
