About Tracy & Chad
I am a 39 year old American from corn fields in Illinois, USA. I moved to Tamarindo in 2002 at 22 years old. I currently own and operate several rental properties, a surf & tour shop, along with a surf camp in Tamarindo. I love the outdoors, and all adventure sports, which Tamarindo is a great place for these activities. My wife, Tracy, has lived in Tamarindo for 4 years and is originally from the OC in California. We both have several decades of experience in hospitality and service and love meeting new people. We love Costa Rica and the Pura Vida lifestyle Tamarindo offers!
Tracy & Chad purchased this House in 2019
Why Tracy & Chad chose Tamarindo
The property is located one block from the beach and one block from the center of town. The location is amazing. Close enough to walk to but just far enough away to enjoy the privacy and tranquil Pura Vida Lifestyle. The house is great for hosting both small families or large groups. Lots of space and plenty of beds. Enjoy the large backyard with pool, sun patio, BBQ, and covered Patio. This property will not disappoint!!

Awesome place! Incredible host!
Chad was very accommodating and always responsive to our needs. Loved the location, the house and the owners. Highly recommend!
This is the house to stay at!!
My family of 4 rented this property from December 25 - January 6/2020 and couldn't have been more impressed with this house. We actually were the first ones to rent after Tracy and Chad completely renovated the house. It is amazing as to what they have done! It is in a perfect location with a 2 minute walk to the beach and only a 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants. What I really enjoyed about this property is the beautiful backyard and the pool to cool off from after being either on the beach or coming back from an excursion. Furthermore, be prepared to see some animal friends visit from iguanas to howler monkeys in the trees above. The house is gated and very safe although from the street, it might not look inviting but it truly is a gem once the gate opens. The listing states that it can sleep up to 16 which I can see enough beds for, I would see this perfect for 2-3 families that would have lots of space in the open kitchen area and the back yard. Tamarindo is a great town that has many restaurants (green papaya is great) and an awesome beach where you must try surfing. I would recommend renting boards or surf lessons from Iguanas surf shop. Leo who helps keep things clean outside is amazing and will help you with anything that you need. Gloria who is the housekeeper also will help with anything that is needed inside the house (only speaks Spanish). If you are buying groceries, I would recommend shopping at the grocery store slightly out of town or in the neighboring town of villarreal although the 3 grocery stories close to the house are very convenient in case you need a few items. I'm blaming the backyard for my frequent need for more cervasas. I highly recommend this house as we have rented in many other countries and this is one of the best.
Great location in Tamarindo
Our family of four stayed at Casa Redonda for 5 nights over Spring Break and loved the location in Tamarindo. We could easily walk to restaurants, bars, shopping, beach, and the market. The road out front was getting re-paved, so we did have to park our car off site one night but it was no problem. The paved road out front will be a major improvement for the property once it is complete. Less dirt/dust making it's way onto the property grounds. The interior of the home functioned well. We have teenage boys and they took one room and my husband and I had the other. We spent a lot of our time at Casa Redonda outside... eating, BBQ, and pool. It was great to have boogie boards and beach chairs available to us and we definitely used them! A great trip. Thank you!
Our Home Away From Home!
Thanks Mike and Kathe for another amazing stay in Tamarindo. Can’t wait to return. We will definitely be back. Your house in Tamarindo is perfect for us.

Great location, perfect for family of 4
So, just returned from Tamarindo after a 15 day vacation. Serious withdrawals. Frown... Sorry, about the home. It's on a dirt road that used to be paved back in the day. Very convenient to everything Tamarindo has to offer. House itself was good but the back yard was great. Pool, Fauna, Wildlife were superb. Pool cushions and chair pillows were dated and moldy. Could use replacing. Other than that the outdoor area was everything it billed up to be. House itself in good shape. We had toilet leaking issues in the main bedroom which when reported was promptly fixed. One of my daughters beds broke in the middle of the night giving us all a scare not knowing what happened. Foot board screws came out. Never got fixed while we were there so I had to put a desk drawer under the frame so she could sleep in it. kitchen utensils were dated but functional and as mentioned linen and towels were old. New stuff has been purchased but we did not see them. Couple of small issues. Muricio and Maria took good care of the house. Most of the time after Muricio left I would have to go back and re-clean the pool. Maria told us a few stories with several different versions which left us scratching our heads. Their both super people who work very hard just take what is said with a grain of salt. Our last full day there both were over at the house cleaning for at least 3-4 hours. Kind of got on our nerves as we wanted to enjoy this last day. They took the pool cushion covers off and we could not use them so they could wash and clean for the next arrivals. Didn't care for that either. Wish they arrived earlier in the day, did what they had to do and then leave. Just seemed a bit of overkill. House location is awesome. Beach a 3-5 minute walk away. The hostel across the street is a bit noisy. Several nights we would hear the music till the wee hours. Traffic outside your secluded home can be a bit noisy as that seems to be a main vein to Longosta. Stores and restaurants and shops all within walking distance and extremely convenient. All and all a very relaxing stay and highly recommend the house. With just a bit of effort this place could be fabulous. It's a very nice home in a great location. Thanks for the memories.
David thank you for staying with us at Casa Redonda. Thank you for the review. Most of the things you mentioned have been addressed. New bed in the bedroom to replace the broken one. All new linens. New cushion cover on lounges in pool area. Also now new kitchen appliances Stove and Refrigerator. Sorry we can't do much about the road we have been trying to get it paved for 15 years which by the way was never paved for as long as I can remember maybe 25 years. Yes we sometimes have a problem with the toilet because the water pressure in Costa Rica varies so much that you have a problem adjusting the toilet to work properly. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and would recommend the house to other people to stay. We do take pride in the house and try to make it as comfortable as possible.
Awesome central location and backyard with pool is perfect
Only concern would be the need for upgraded beds, linens, towels and cushions for outside chairs. Also regular checking for ants in bedrooms. Thank you for referral to Luca the driver he was reliable and reasonably priced. Housekeeper Maria and gardener were fantastic and really added to the experience.
Location! Location! Location! We are located just minutes from the center of town and all the restaurants, bars, and shops. You have three Grocery stores with in a minutes walk. No rental car is needed as we are so centrally located you can get to everything by walking. Tamarindo is a beautiful white sand beach. With great waves all year long.
