About Casa Monacita

Hola and Pura Vida :)

First off - thank you for your interest in my Casa!!

My name is Mona and, born and raised in Germany, I have been living in the US since 2008.

While moving back and forth between the US East & West Coasts, a long needed vacation - in form of a kickboxing 'reboot' camp - took me to Tamarindo for the first time in 2013.

Despite having traveled the world quite a bit, it didn't take long to realize that this must be one of the most beautiful spots in the world! Beautiful not only in terms of scenery but also very much for its great people and relaxed lifestyle.

Taking in the 'Pura Vida' spirit has been a truly life changing experience for which I couldn't be more grateful.

Still leading my 'normal' US life with a stressful day job and the notoriously endless ToDo list, Tamarindo has become my home away home helping to keep that precious 'work life balance'.

Casa Monacita purchased this house in 2014

Why Casa Monacita chose Tamarindo

It's one of those 'it all started as a crazy idea' stories... Needless to say that I fell in love with the Casa the first time saw it, being impressed by it's solid built, great location and views.

From the first visit, it took only 4 more months until I proudly waved MY keys in the air.

Despite usually not leaving investment activities to fate, it was a truly 'meant to be' experience.

What makes this house unique

This property excelled expectations on so many levels - walking distance to the beach, breathtaking views from EVERY part of the house, homely atmosphere, solid construction, seemingly endless potential.... all in my favorite place in the world - Tamarindo.

Wonderful outdoor living and view

  • 4 of 5

The best thing about this property is the views from the outdoor common areas. We stayed in the casita, which at first was dissappointing. The view is of the hillsides, not the ocean, and there are a lot of stairs to get to it. However, once we were there for a while, I realized that the casita's privacy made up for the disappointing aspects. The roof of the casita had a great ocean view, and we spent a lot of time up there. The upper units had better views and fewer stairs, but in the end I preferred the casita because of the privacy. We also had a kitchenette which was stocked with enough cookware and dishes for basic meal preparation.

There was a very high outdoor covered patio for watching sunsets and it had the best view. From the casita it was about 3 1/2 flights of stairs up, but worth every step.

It's an easy walk to down the beach and town, but the hill to get back might be formidable for some. However, I lost weight during my trip to Costa Rica, and I attribute it to the stairs and hill. What's bad about that?

Best of all, the owner's mother, Iris was in residence, and she was a pleasure.

We loved it and you will too

  • 5 of 5

This is absolutely the place to stay if you're wanting to go to Costa Rica. Pat and Eryn are wonderful hosts! Yes the house is on a very steep hill (but you need to burn off all the food and beer you drink while in Costa Rica) plus with it being on a hill you get a wonderful breeze that you don't get if you're below the hill. Monkeys come to visit at sunset and you have a dog and cat that greets you when you are there. The house is amazing! The pool is much needed after the climb up the hill and to relax and watch the sunset. Tamarindo has a friendly and alive type atmosphere. Hope you all have as much fun as we did.

Property is amazing with even better views than the photos provide.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Mona, Patrick and Eryn (oh and Bondo the dog :-) for a wonderful holiday. Our family really enjoyed ourselves and were just amazed by the stunning view! The highlight had to be the Howler Monkeys visiting us on the property as the sun was setting on the ocean! Pura Vida!!!

Great location but...

  • 3 of 5

We spent a week in one of the units at this location - its called La Casita. Didn't know there was a big difference between the units but there is! There are about 4 more flights of stairs to get to La Casita, no view from the unit and no internet inside the unit - although I specifically requested wireless internet. In addition, some nasty sewage smell right outside the unit. The caretakers were very generous with letting us occupy their space so that I could access the internet and get up to date with my work. Owner should advise in advance if they cannot met our simple requirements.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was by far, one of the best vacation spots I have ever visited. Joanna, the property manager not only helped arrange our activities during our stay but went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and having a good experience. Having someone like Joanna on site makes visiting a foreign country a lot less daunting to novice travelers.

Our room had the most beautiful view but at Casa Monacita, every room had a great view of the forest and the beach in the background.
