We loved our stay in the 1st week in April at Casa Bambora. Joey is a great host, cost was right, accomodations, pool, outdoor communal kitchen was ideal. Perfectly located in Tamarindo Costa Rica. 5 min walk to town, 10 min walk to beach. Costa Rican people warm and welcoming. Would definitely stay again. Great bang for your travel buck....

There were two of us that stayed at Casa Bombora in March. It was our first time to Costa Rica and we couldn't have found a better "laid back" place to stay. The owner Joey was very prompt in responding to my initial e-mail and following up with questions we had. The room is not you 5 star hotel however...

My sister and I stayed at Casa Bambora for three nights. It was a TOTAL haven! Joey, the affable, barefoot owner, is a sweetie, as are his two marvelous concierges, married couple Jenn and Jarred. We were treated like family, and made to feel at home from the get-go! No request was too small, or too trivial. Jenn even did...

I was here for almost three months(end of December-March) and enjoyed it very much. The studio 2B (where I lived) was just perfect with a great balcony where I could hear and see many birds each morning. However, the most important aspects of this place are the owner (Joey) his girlfriend Yendry,the assistant managers Jennifer and Jared, and Pablo the...

Our stay at Casa Bambora was absolutely wonderful. Everything there was exactly what we expected. Our shuttle from the airport was pre-arranged by owner Joey and we were delivered right to the door where we were immediately met and given a tour. We stayed in the 1st Floor Studio which was wonderfully convenient to the communal area and yet still...

We spent six weeks at this lovely little gem and loved every minute. It was absolutely perfect for our wants and needs. Our little studio on the first floor was simple but totally adequate, and we used the outdoor kitchen area/bar almost every day. Enjoyed eating outdoors and also the company and camaraderie of the other guests as they occasionally...

I have stayed at many hotels & VRBOs in Europe, Central & South America. Few have come this close to a perfect fit. The studio is large enough for two people to be self occupied. Several US TV chanels. The modest kitchen is complimented by a large communal one, with grill & seating outside. Noise doesnt seem to travel around...
