Why Rick & Jacquie Frederick chose Playa Langosta

Living in the northeast United States offers a many short and long term vacation opportunities and for many years our family enjoyed winter weekend ski trips, February and spring break vacations to many warmer destinations. Now that our children are grown and not within easy access for my wife and I, we found ourselves desiring a place to go that everyone would want to come and enjoy. After 4 trips to Costa Rica this year, we decided to buy this wonderful villa.

What makes this condo unique

Our Villa is located in a very quite residential community of Langosta, this affords our guests with relaxing accommodations, secluded uncrowded beaches but within a short walk or taxi ride 1 km to Tamarindo where the nightlife, surfing, shopping and many other activities await your pleasure.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I stayed in La Esquina #3 for two weeks in March, and it is everything and more than in the description and photos. We have been in Costa Rica before touring all over the country, and this vacation we decided to stay in one place to soak in the atmosphere. Sometimes it is the right thing not to have an agenda, and to let things fall in your lap naturally. 

 The gated condo is in a very safe residential area - twenty-four hour security guard - within a short walking distance for beach access, and only a mile from Tamarindo, where it is a bit livelier with the younger crowd. We found excellent neighborhood restaurants - our favorite is Walter's Fish and Cheeses, which features homemade fresh pasta, Italian wine and two marvelous, welcoming managers/chef. We fell into conversations with friendly, helpful local people everywhere. A small grocery store is within two blocks. We bought our wine supply at Walter's because we discovered that the bottles at the grocery store remain too long on shelves in the heat. There are fine restaurants in Tamarindo, too, and we loved the seared ahi tuna tacos, grilled sea bass and smoked salmon selections. The Saturday local farm market is a destination for fresh fruit, local cheeses and vegetables. Search, be adventuresome and you will find what you desire in food and experiences. 

 This spacious and well-furnished place with AC, Wi-Fi, washer/dryer and household amenities is perfect for two to six people. We looked forward to sunsets on our deck - the rooftop area is fine for viewing, too - and cool breezes coming in from the ocean. When you hear the waves breaking on the shore in the distance, it is a delightful reminder of nature's way. 

 The complex is quiet and family-friendly. The large pool became our late afternoon spot. There is nothing like soaking up the last of the rays surrounded by lush plantings and palm trees in the well-maintained courtyard. We rented a golf cart to get from point A to B, and hired Costa Rica Best Trips for airport transfers - they also took us on a tour of the national park/coffee plantation. Some people do rent a car, although you can manage without. I found the 6 am beach walk back and forth to Tamarindo good exercise, and apparently, so did other folks, too. 

 All in all, residing at La Esqina for a short period of time where attention to detail is evident rejuvenated us, and more importantly, made us appreciative of such a peaceful and eco-friendly country.

Beautiful Place, Easy Check In/Out, Would Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo, and especially appreciated the ease of check in/out. The property management company (once we found the correct location...there are two, and although we followed the instructions that were sent to us we still had to make two stops) was friendly and the check in process easy; they simply gave us the keys and some information about the area, and we were on our way. The complex is gated, and the security guards were efficient and very friendly. The condo itself is gorgeous, clean and well-appointed. The Master bedroom is warm (sunny side) but the A/C is nice and cold and the ceiling fan helped keep everything comfortable. The pool is well-maintained and very refreshing after a warm day. The beach is literally across the street, although this stretch is quite rocky and not good for swimming. I would still recommend this location as it is a little quieter than 'town' but still close enough to walk if you'd like. Added bonus: a small grocery store right around the corner for basics. Overall, highly recommend and would stay here again.

Four Days in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Great two bedroom condo. Well appointed with all of the amenities needed for a very comfortable four night stay. Felt like home away from home. Easy to cook or grill meals in, or find local restaurants to dine out. Perfectly located in quiet Playa Langosta, only a 3 minute walk to its sparsely populated beaches. If you are looking for a little more activity, you can take a short ride or long walk to the center of very busy Tamarindo and its well-populated beaches. Property managers and owners very easy to work with. I would highly recommend.

This was my second stay in Langosta, and I must say - I am ready to quit my job in the states and move here. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else when visiting Costa Rica. The condo will instantly make you feel at home. Before heading to beach (which is right in your back yard!) I would wake up early every morning, make a pot of coffee, sit on the balcony to enjoy the early sun rays and listen to local birds sing. The neighborhood is very welcoming to visitors, and most business's speak english. The grocery store, only a couple blocks down the street, has everything you will need and accepts american bills. There is also a strip of business' a block from the condo to fulfill your adventure needs. You can rent bikes, surfboards, bodyboards and even golf carts, etc! This location is truly an ideal situation for the adventure goers as well as the beach bums. Tamarindo is only a walk away, either by beach or street. Cabs are also very accessible and cheap. Tamarindo is full of cool shops, restaurants, bars, and has an amazing night life. Our go-to spot was Witches Rock. A very cool bar on the beach that all the surfers hangout at in between tide changes. Don't forget to order the chiliguaro! The locals could not be friendlier with their "pura vida" life style and are very welcoming to tourists. When our day came to an end we would sit on the roof (with a table and chairs) to watch the amazing sunsets and listening to waves crash against the shoreline. When the sun was finally swallowed by the ocean, we would always head to the pool for a night swim. It was perfect way to finish our adventures. This was by-far the most unforgettable trip I have ever been on and I cannot wait to come back to this beautiful country. I will most definitely be staying here in the future! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Favorite vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Two time renter here! This is the ideal location for someone seeking both relaxation AND adventure. This condo truly has it all. Spacious rooms, amazing views, a luxurious pool. Not to mention it's a very short walk away from top vacation necessities: a grocery store, locally owned restaurants, and of course the beach. The ocean is basically your backyard. There is so much to see and do in this area, and the town of Tamarindo is only a short distance away. Get your cameras ready (and your sunblock), you are going to see some of the most beautiful things and explore some of the most exhilarating nearby spots. Already looking to plan another trip.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here multiple times and love it even more each time as I get more familiar. The area is private and secluded but perfect walking distance to the beach and town. The views are beautiful and the stretch of beach is in an awesome cove and a surf haven. Plenty of places to stop for drinks and food along the beach (go to Witch's Rock for a chili guaro and Imperial). Coming back for rooftop sunsets and a dip in the pool is unbeatable.
