“This is the only condo I'll book from now on..”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2015

we were a group of 4 couples and we reserved the entire place out . It was absolutely ideal and more than we anticipated. Everything they advertised was true. Not overstated or misrepresented. Sparkling bathrooms and new up to date amenities. This condo "the GECKO" is perfect for 2 people and feels like an exotic apartment. Fast wifi, location was truly walking distance to beach and restaurants. Even a restaurant right outside this condo . Good eats! never needed to drive.. The the pool is extremely private and clean with a nice waterfall feature. And fun bbq rancho area was clean and convenient too. Grilled out like at home! The reservation host Lindsey helped with the reservation confirms and Chad the onsite manager told us where to find restaurants and learn to surf. I felt very safe, secure and definitely had much fun. Will be back!!

“Do not pass this condo up!”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2015

We have officially stayed in all 3 of Iguana Surf's Condos now and although they are all very different design wise, they are all amazing. My personal favorite is Casa Gecko just because of the design layout and pool view, and for sure our kids favorite is the newest condo, Casa Chameleon for its awesome modern interior design. As we wrote on the other review, we only have great things to say about these condos and the hosts, siblings, Chad and Lindsey. We are very thankful they were able to accommodate us even when the 2 bedroom was booked out they figured a way for us to be able to come back and stay for our last night in Costa Rica.

“Great condo and great location”

Reviewed 11 May 2013

I stayed at Casa Gecko for 4 weeks this past March and april. The condo is very spacious, nicely decorated, very clean (place, sheets, towels, etc), and it has everything you need for a short or a longer stay and the service is very reliable. There is a common laundry, pool, BBQ and yard and a nightly guard. You will be about 100 yards from playa Tamarindo! There is a friendly bar next door which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is a great location, close to everything (grocery, Saturday farmer's market, coffee shops, pilates, yoga, surf shops, Spanish school, restaurants, ...) yet not in the middle of them. The owners are very nice. They are available if you have any requests and they make sure your requests are addressed. I highly recommend this condo.

“Honeymoon in Costa Rica”

Reviewed 27 Dec 2012

My husband and I recently stayed at Casa Gecko for our honeymoon. The location was perfect, just a block from the beach and Tamarindo circle and having our own pool to relax beside offered us privacy when we wanted it. The manager, Megan was fabulous! She had answers to all of our questions and was always willing to help! In fact all of the staff were quite lovely. The Condo itself was beautiful and always clean! This was a great place to stay and we would come back again in a heart beat!

“Perfect Location in Tamarindo”

Reviewed 1 May 2012

My boyfriend and I just stayed here last week and it is perfect for two people. We absolutely loved the condo. It's very spacious, well decorated, immaculately clean and very comfortable. The pool is steps outside along with the BBQ as well as Kahiki Restaurant that has great food (breakfast burrito!) and sports (Lakers playoffs!). This spot is a 5 minute walk to the beach and around all of the restaurants and shops. After roughing it in Monteverde and arenal the king size bed, A/C, flat screen TV and other amenities were so nice. Megan was very cool and we'd definitely come back.

“Best place to stay in Tamarindo!”

Reviewed 28 Mar 2012

I rent Casa Gecko for 2 weeks. From the minute I contacted Meagan for a last min reservation the service was great. When I arrived I was surprised how much better the apartment is than it looks online. The studio is spacious and well decorated and feels like home. There were even some small kitchen items supplied that made it easier to just move it. The pool is right outside the door and the patio and BBQ along with hammock were perfect. A small grocery store is a 3 min walk. Being on the edge of town turned out to be the perfect spot to avoid the noise of the bar scene and it was only a 3 min walk to a less occupied beach. Meagan and her staff made my stay in Tamarindo a very comfortable one. And although there are possibly less expensive places to stay, Casa Gecko had everything. A complete no worry place to stay.

“Heaven in Costa Rica”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2012

We stayed here in January 2012 and were overwhelmed with the beauty and serenity at this condo. The moment you arrive you are relaxed and carefree. The condo had everything we needed with great attention to detail of making the guest feel comfortable. Outside we could see the monkeys right in our backyard and enjoy the peacefulness of Costa Rica. We only had to walk a little way out of our condo area to find stores, and great food. Recommend for sure!!

“Wonderful Honeymoon place!”

Reviewed 22 Jan 2012

My husband & I stayed at the Condo for our Honeymoon in Jan of 2007. It was wonderful. The condo was clean, comfy, and a perfect place to spend our honeymoon. It has a full kitchen if you want to stay in cook. The glass shower is pretty neat, too. The private pool was awesome. We spent many hours there. It is just a short walk to a grocery store so we stocked up on drinks and snacks. We walked to the beach everyday--just a block walk. Walked the beach and found places to stop and eat & drink. With the resturant & bar right next door, we were never far from food or drink. The staff is amazing! It was very easy to book an adventure outing at Iguana Surf (right next door) and to rent surf boards. Everyone should try to a surf lesson. Thanks Chad & Devon for being great owners of such a wonderful place! We can't wait to come back.

“Perfect location! Walk to beach and downtown.”

Nicely furnished, very comfortable bed. Nice kitchen for staying home for eating and entertaining. Great patio and pool area. Also close to a great restaurant literally next door!
