Unit 84 directly overlooks the large semicircular pool that is the heart of The Oaks, with a private balcony on the third floor of building 15. Watch your friends and neighbors arrive, then head down to the pool and ranch area to socialize.
The Oaks is an exclusive gated community only ten minutes from Tamarindo, Flamingo and Playa Grande, in the heart of Guanacaste's Gold Coast. The Oaks features spacious 2 bedroom condominium units built with exquisite attention to detail. Personally tour top quality construction that you can see and touch, surrounded by native oaks, over 70% of which have been carefully preserved, a rarity in this zone.
The Oaks is located within a 31 acre community on gently rising land with panoramic vistas.. The Oaks also is close to Costa Rica´s best beaches, golf, surfing and fishing, plus Tamarindo´s active night life and amenities. Unit 84 features two flat panel Panasonic plasma TVs, Cable TV, Wireless Internet, thee Carrier mini-split air conditioners and more, Security 24/7, Tours to the main national parks, enough parking spaces and plenty of gardens to enjoy.
The Oaks is located on the best paved asphalt road in the area, only minutes from the best of the Gold Coast. A bus stop is directly in front with scheduled service to all points each hour. Your rental car is a luxury but not a necessity, as many guests have found. Drive one minute south and there is a new gasoline station. Three minutes south, a huge Mega Super grocery for cheap shopping, plus a Fischel pharmacy, a computer store, a dentist and a veterinarian. Five minutes south is the cross roads of Villa Real. Continue straight five minutes to the J W Marriott Resort (think golf) and world famous Avellanas beach and Playa Negra. Surf's up! Turn right to Tamarindo, and in 3 minutes shop at the high end grocery Auto Mercado. Fresh sushi and imported wine. Two more minutes past Pangas beach front restaurant and you are in bustling Tamarindo for people watching, shopping, dining and the most famous surf beach in Costa Rica. But wait. You have been there, done that. Turn right out of The Oaks instead. Go north three minutes to the cross roads town of Huacas. Another supermarket, another pharmacy, shops, a medical center and a gym! Turn left and in 10 minutes you are on the turtle nesting beach of Playa Grande. Or, fork off to the road less traveled, secluded Playa Pirata, located on one of Costa Rica's famed dirt roads. But you would rather stay on asphalt roads. No problem. From Huacas, turn left and then right toward Brasilito/Flamingo three minutes to the Westin Resort and Spa at Reserva Conchal for another high end resort, two resorts within ten minutesof The Oaks! Two more minutes to Brasilito for a shell beach (Playa Conchal), ideal for snorkeling and diving. Six minutes more to the original white sand beach, Flamingo. A more mature crowd than Tamarindo, Million dollar homes and million dollar sunset views over the ocean. Must go to CocoLoco beach front gourmet dining, spectacular sunsets. Love it. Or, before you reach Flamingo, veer off toward the right to funky Playa Potrero, where cover bands and beer make for a great Wednesday night out. Keep going, not far, and you find the famous "dog beach" Playa Danta, with a high end development, Las Catalinas, and a beach front restaurant.. If you have read this far, you know the deal. The Oaks is ten minutes outside Tamarindo, but in the ideal spot to explore the best beaches and features of the Guanacaste Gold Coast.TripAdvisor property ID 4290786...Read more

This is the first review I have written for a vacation rental and after a week at "The Oaks" I felt the need to do so. We absolutely loved our time in this condo and would highly recommend it to families or couples. We are a family of 4 with two active little girls 6 and 3 years old. With the Oaks being located between all the best beaches we were able to visit the more family type beaches with the girls in the morning and then go to the more active ones in the afternoon. (as a couple while our girls napped with the sitter.) When the girls woke we had the choice of two different pool areas that were kids friendly - one even had a beach type entry into the pool. Even though it was busy we always were able to get chairs by the pool. One day when the girls were napping we went to the third pool that is adult only just so we had a break not only from our girls noises but from other kids as well - very nice! The condos had a fully equipped kitchen and the grocery store was just minutes away so it was very handy and much more economical then feeding the four of us on tourist priced restaruants every night. The only complaint I seriously had was that I couldnt stay longer - oh other than we stayed on the third floor and we got tired of the stairs - if you dont like stairs get a lower floor - ha!
