-Katie & Happy were immediately accommodating, even offering laundry services upon learning I'd been traveling for a month. The place was fantastic-- maybe my favorite place in terms of the bed, decor / amenities, and overall great vibe of the place. For the price, it was wonderful to have my own space after traveling. Will definitely stay here from now on when in Tamarindo. Highly recommended. Thanks guys!
-Steven-Wonderful apartment. Perfectly furnished and extremely well equipped.

Clean, spacious, quiet place to stay. Large walk in shower which was really nice. Clean up service daily. Located very close to town and beach. Theres a cafe and grocery store just down the hill which was very convenient. It was pretty warm and muggy while I was there in November…

Katie & Happy have real nice house close to beach, downtown and all near by attractions. This big house on the hill has several apartments clean and comfortable, every one of them has separate entrance. They’re nice couple from US enjoying life in pura vida.

The location is tricky to find. You have to walk up a steep hill. Happy is not always available.

Quiet, great location, and very clean. They had daily housekeeping and with all that sand from the beach was ideal. Very hospitable, available for questions and made our stay easy and comfortable. The entrance is a slight uphill but doable, careful if you have arthritic knees and…
