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.

Great location, great accommodation, property managers were great too.

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to stay if you want to be close to the beach, but not in the middle of all of the noise and traffic. We were told by several people that this condo complex has the best pool in the town. Very convenient to grocery store and right next door to a very good restaurant (Boka). There is a "coffee shop" about ten minute walk away that you can get smoothies, breakfast, lunch and snacks. A/C worked very well. Nice balcony. Washer/driver convenient. Good water pressure. I emailed the owner Rick several times and he was great in answering some inane questions. He recommended transportation service that was incredibly reliable (best trips). I would stay at this place again in a heart beat. Nice to have beach towels. Also really liked having a safe in the condo to put passports, wallets, valuables. Also there is an elevator so you don't have to drag your bags up the stairs. Lots of great places to eat that were an easy walk. Highly recommend.

The condo was beautiful! It was even better than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect vacation home for us. It had everything we could want. It is conveniently located just steps away from the beach. There is a grocery store and restaurants nearby and if you don’t mind a short walk you can go to Tamarindo for restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, night life, or excursions.

The beach is amazing but the pool and grounds are simply amazing! The pool is clean, cool and relaxing after a fun day exploring.

If you are thinking about a visit to this area you can’t go wrong with this delightful place!

Perfect location for a magical vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great family vacation in Playa Langosta and this was a perfect location. It's a little outside of town so away from the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo but close enough to easily get to where you want to go. The interior of the condo was perfectly decorated and had all the linens and supplies you would need, including beach towels. The pool was perfect and offered a bit of shade, which was nice. We also rented a golf cart for the week which was very fun and made it even more easy to get into town. The beach across the street was a great place to explore. We enjoyed the beaches in Tamarindo a bit better because it was a great spot to surf and play in the sand and there were so many restaurants along the beach we enjoyed trying out many of them. We also loved the beach a little outside of town by the Volcano Brewing Company. They had awesome live entertainment and the perfect spot to watch the sunset. We would also recommend the Waffle Monkey for breakfast in addition to Waterman's Surf and Sport rentals to coordinate any activities you wanted to do in the area. They were very friendly and accommodating. We are already planning for a trip back next year. This is our new favorite vacation spot!

Clean, tasteful and conveniently located condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Rick's condo, which was both comfortable and elegant -- powerful showers, excellent (if somewhat loud) air conditioning, great mattresses, and plenty of linen. Tamarindo and Langosta beaches were a short walk away, but we prferred to drive because the road was unpaved and dreadfully dusty. Except for the huge grasshoppers that lined the corridors and stairwells at dusk and made our kids nervous, our visit was very pleasant and relaxed!

Not as expected

  • 3 of 5

The unit is located about 200 mts from the beach on a particularly dusty road. Size is nice, but neets major improvements like new towels, bath rugs, dishes, etc. The condo complex needs major maintenance also. Pool area is nice but full of dust. Air conditioning did not work well as well as wifi signal.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that your visit did not meet your expectations. The dust caused by the dirt road can be inconvenient during the dry months, it is not something that is unique to our complex, the area or Costa Rica in general, as 70% or more or the county is accessed by dirt roads. Internet in the Tamarindo area is typically reliable by their standards, though their system does become overburdened during the higher activity demands of high season. Specifically our condo has two WiFi routers to provide best possible access given thick concrete interior walls. Thank you for your important feedback as this is helpful for us to identify and understand where we can make improvements to our home and create the best possible vacation experience for all our guests.
