Luxurious penthouse- kitchen, cable, gas grill, a/c, private terrace w/Jacuzz
ESQ10 - Just across the street from the beach, this luxurious 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath penthouse condo is located on the top floor with a private jacuzzi off the living room. It comes with custom kitchen, cable TV, gas grill, A/C, and shared roof top terrace.
La Esquina is a unique property consisting of ten luxury condominiums in Tamarindo contained within a gated complex just a few minutes’ walk from the famous waves of Langosta Beach. A fabulously wild tropical garden surrounding the antiqued walls of Spanish-style architecture gives La Esquina, from the outside, the appearance of a storybook castle. Inside the walls of the property, the two structures which constitute La Esquina share an ample enclosed parking area in the back and long pristine pool which stretches the length of the buildings on the street side and is masked from the road by the property’s wall and tropical tangle of flowers. La Esquina is a haven of privacy.
Each residence is individually decorated, but the simple lines and earth tones of antique-style architecture create an overall sense of classic elegance, and the luxury of simplicity. The fully equipped kitchens are compact in design, each including a small exterior patio where a state-of-the-art gas grill is located. A common living room and dining area adjoins the kitchen in each of the units and opens through sliding glass doors onto a patio where the interior world of quiet meets the tropical garden and the sound of the sea. The bedrooms are furnished in rich comfort and each open onto a small porch where the songs of crickets and frogs blend in the warm night breeze.
The units vary in size from two-bedroom residences to the spacious three-bedroom penthouse with open-air deck and private Jacuzzi and are crowned by a rooftop terrace that affords a view over the treetops. From this partially shaded sun deck, the Pacific stretches to the horizon. Spectacular sunsets, a galaxy of stars, and the majestic march of the sun are all played across the screen of the sky from this rooftop terrace.
Located just a mile south of Tamarindo’s bustling center, guests at La Esquina have easy access to international cuisine, a variety of adventure tours, shopping, spas, and the area’s pristine National Parks. This haven of comfort and quiet has something for every occasion: a romantic honeymoon, family gathering, reunion of friends, or a surf trip long dreamt-of. Let the endless beauty of the beaches at your doorstep create memories that will last a lifetime.
Additional amenities include: outdoor shower, nearby tennis courts, elevator, close to town, cd player, nearby grocery, cookware, nearby post office, washer & dryer, nearby fedex, ice maker, near beach, local fiestas, nearby restaurants, coffee maker, nearby bank, nearby internet cafe, nearby medical services, night guard, maid service, nearby atm, golf course....Read more

We stayed in #10 for two weeks and had a fabulous time. There were a few minor issues with the condo however, RPM staff dealt with them very quickly. The unit is very spacious and has everything you need for a great relaxing vacation. I would recommend the condo without hesitation. I would also like to say Lola at RPM was fantastic to deal with during the booking process and during our stay ! Thanks Lola
So glad you had a fabulous time and thanks for the great comments about RPM and Lola. She is great
“great place to stay”

We stayed at La Esquina#10 for about 4 days in Feb 2013. Very nice condo, well furnished, clean, and everything in working order. The RPM staff was very helpful and just a couple blocks down the road. Only things to consider: the beach is very rocky for swimming - but very good for beach combing exploring. The beach at tamarindo is nice, but a 15 minute walk, which is also how long to get to most restauraunts/stores. Does make this a nice quite place to stay though. Highly recommend.
Thanks for the great review and feedback. Hope to see you again!

We rented a very nice three bedroom unit on the third floor with great views. The service at RPM is outstanding, and I'd definitely rent from them again. The only downside to this unit in La Esquina is hardly be blamed on the owner or the manager, but the road outside causes a lot of dust, which covers shrubbery, lawn furniture, and even permeates the pool. It's too bad that they can't control that dust!
Thanks for the comments and feedback. The road can get dusty at times and molassess is put down to control the dust. Hopefully it will be paved in the near future!

We fell in love with Tamarindo as a result of our stay at La Esquina. The condo was very spacious; 3 bedrooms very comfortably accommodated all 7 of us. It was well equipped and it anticipated our needs from the gas grill on one of the balconies, to the hot tub on yet another, and it even included beach towels. We spent each evening enjoying birds, holler monkeys and the sunset on the palapa. We loved this place so much that we plan to return next summer with an even bigger gang of people.
Thanks for the review - we're so glad you had a great trip. When you come back next summer, be sure to give us a call! We'd love to serve you again!

This place is awesome--beautifully furnished and tons of space. We really enjoyed the private balconies, and sunsets from the rooftop deck were incredible. We loved everything about our stay here. The pool was great, the beach was just across the street, and restaurants were nice and close (but you'll want to get a car, it's a little far to walk and the roads are dusty). Also, the property management folks were friendly and very responsive. I'd highly recommend La Esquina #10 to anybody!!

The property is great. Everything about the condo amenities, its condition, etc were just as described in the on-line information. We booked a sailing/snorkling trip and a zip-line trip through the condo office and both were fantastic. The beach can be reached easily by walking a short distance through a "green zone" of trees where monkies and iguanas can sometimes be seen. The beach itself is nice although there are large rocks in the surf throughout much of the area. The only downside I'd mention is that the condo is located at the edge of Tamarindo about 1.5 miles down a dusty road(at least during the dry season - we were there in March). You can't really walk back to town as there are no sidewalks and the dust gets kicked up by every passing car. We didn't have a car and needed to take a taxi back into town to get dinner, etc. There are some nice restaurants in the town. I can recommend Nougai's as a casual restaurant with some typical Costa Rican style dishes. Also, Carolina's is a nice place that offers upscale cuisine at a reasonable price.

Really excellent place! Literally 500 feet from a fabulous beach (Longusta). Three large bedrooms with private balconies and bathrooms. Wonderful outdoor space. Very up to date, overall. I would LOVE to stay there again!

Elevator was not working, up in the third floor meant going up and down the stairs with cargo.
Besides the place was dusty, thus as in the past spraying molasses on the road settles the problem.
Guards should be more helpful with the ladies, at least assisting in loading unloading the vehicles within the building´s parking area.

Just far enough out of the city to miss all the noise , the codo was huge and beautifully appointed and we really enjoyed the tea pool on the patio, what a cool idea!Three good restraunts you can walk to and the beach was 100 ft away through a park . We walked about 1000ft to the south to a huge sandy beach with no one on it that went for miles. Loved the place the food was way better than Mexico and the people were very helpful and friendly . Note when renting a car get a SUV the bigger the better as the roads are fairly rough and always keep the tank full as there are not many gas stations in Costa Rica and none by any of the beach towns.
