Beautiful views from every angle, infinity pool is quite large.
Very close to the beach but you can’t swim in front of the home because of the volcanic Rock, but you can walk up the beach to swim. Kitchen is very well equipped, we had a chef come and cook for 2 nights, that was awesome. Grounds are extensive and very well kept, staff cleans the pool and grounds every day. Master suite is beautiful, out door showers. Need a gold cart to get into the town of Tamarindo, it’s a long walk.
Fantastic home and all-around experience
Absolutely stunning home, grounds, and location. Above expectations, even from the pictures. Concierge (Andrea) was extremely helpful and valuable as well as the staff. We had 3 couples stay and had plenty of room/privacy. Highly recommended.
A lovely home in a great location.
From our 78 year old to our youngest 9 year old, we all loved our stay at the beautiful Mono Malo. Everything was perfect, including being pampered by Lisette and Pepe. What a wonderful home for a family vacation in Tamarindo. The biggest problem we had was not wanting to leave our comfort and beautiful gardens to go beaching, surfing and zip lining. We all agreed that we want to come back again and enjoy the hospitality and comfortable home. Thank you for sharing it with us.
We really enjoyed this house! We have rented many oceanfront homes and this is one of our favorites!! The pool is wonderful and very large. You can see it from Google Earth! The teens really enjoyed the apartment above the garage. The management was also very helpful.
The only thing against the house is that they don't warn you that the upper level is not part of the rental. You can see it in the pictures and they don't let you know until you arrive that it is not part of the rental. Still, a great rental!!
Thanks so much for the excellent review Coleen and thanks for staying with us at Mono Malo! A quick note in regards to the confusion re the upper level:
"The only thing against the house is that they don't warn you that the upper level is not part of the rental. You can see it in the pictures and they don't let you know until you arrive that it is not part of the rental."
For clarification...we are a bit confused because we are 100% forthcoming with all of our guests!! We specifically do not have photos of the upper level of Mono Malo online? That area is a small room that is only used by the owners as an office and storage area for their personal belongings and has never been marketed/advertised as part of the home for rent.
Again, thank you and we hope to see you again soon!

Pura Vida~ Casa Mono Malo
We spent 7 days in Tamarindo at Casa Mono Malo. We were two families of 8 and we fit comfortably with 4 adults and 4 teenagers. The open kitchen and living space was ideal for entertaining and relaxing. The views are spectacular and no picture can ever describe the beauty of this property. We have been to Costa Rica many times and rented amazing homes, but no view has ever compared to the one you have here. There are no words to describe the sunsets. They were breathtaking.
The beach was beautiful, but very rocky. No swimming, surfing, or boogie boarding can be done directly in front of the house. You are in walking distance to a nice beach area or you can drive into Tamarindo for surfing. This was a bit of a disappointment for the kids because we thought we could enjoy the beach without leaving the house.
The main house has 3 bedrooms. The master has a connected bathroom with outside views from the shower with its own air conditioner unit in the bedroom and bathroom. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom and has an open outdoor shower. There is no air conditioner in this bathroom. There is no air conditioner in the kitchen, but there is a living area with air, seating, and a television. There is also a separate apartment style bedroom with its own kitchen area and bathroom. This is separate from the main house and above the garage. The kids loved it! It also had its own Wi-Fi.
The staff was very attentive to every need including scheduling a deep tissue massage (twice)on the property where you can hear the ocean breeze, restaurant reservations and excursions. The white water rafting is a must. So much fun! The property was very well maintained. We had a daily housekeeper who was awesome and the pool and outdoor living area was cleaned every morning. There was also a night time security guard so we felt very safe throughout our stay.
The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. The outdoor kitchen/grilling area was also well stocked and had a gas grill we used a lot. Really nice beach towels were also provided. All the bedding and bathroom linens were very clean and very well maintained!!
We hate we had to leave and definitely miss waking up to the sound of the ocean!
We loved Mano Malo
The house was amazing even better than the pictures. We had 3 kids with us, 2 4 year olds and a 7 year old. It's a great location for kids they loved the pool and at low tide they played in the tide pools collecting seashells and hermit crabs. The beach was beautiful and not at all crowded. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wish we were still there!!
Playa Langosta is quite residential community located 1/2 mile south of Tamarindo. Because of this proximity,you have access to over 50 restaurants, shopping and a bustling nightlife but can come home to the tranquility of this beautiful setting for a peaceful vacation.
