I stayed here for four nights with my girlfriend in one of Harry's cabinas and loved it. It's close to the beach, yet very private. The cabina's are spacious and clean, the AC is brand new, and there's a stove and fridge, tv with tons of movies (we ordered food in and watched the Big Lebowski one night after a...

It was a private and personal setting, while giving an opportunity to get to know the adjacent staying couples. It is close to everything. El Escondite has a great pool, large patios and a shady garden to relax. Harry provides just the right dose of care in a casual environment to make you feel relaxed but within reach of any...

We stayed with harry for 4 weeks and absolutely enjoyed every minute! Our cabina had everything we needed and the grounds were stunning. We had a gas oven too so i was able to make fresh banana bread every week as well as a key lime pie from the limes on the property. The bikes were an added bonus which...

Harry's El Escondite is a gem. So glad an accommodation search turned up Harry's. Right up our alley. Close without being in the middle of the hub-bub. Our cabina had everything we needed and nice extras, like Google TV and all the movies you can watch. Harry will share his wealth of advice and won't steer you wrong. My last...

Dont think we could have chosen better accommodation for our 2 week trip to Costa Rica. Only a 10 minute walk from all the restaurants and the beach but still has a secluded vibe which we both loved. Harry was the most laid back person ive ever met and was so helpful with restaurant recommendations and even some life advice...

Harry's cabinas are clean, comfortable, and at a great location close to the beach. The setup is ideal for getting to know your neighbors yet also enjoying your private retreat. The combo door locks are a nice feature and Harry even provides you with a little mnemonic :) Harry is friendly and funny (!), open to providing insights and hanging...

We really enjoyed our two weeks stay at Harry's. He was a perfect host, offering any advise or direction that you may request. We were lucky enough to be graced with Harry's excellent cooking skills, as he prepared tuna pokey (hope I have the name correct) for us one evening. It was one of the best meals we had on...

Harry's was so comfortable and inviting, This place is just a short walk from the middle of Tamarindo. If you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere, comfortable bed and a cool pool Harry's is the place. Nice shady, cool pool and deck with the awesome sounds of the monkeys and the birds. The beach and restaurants are close but not...

We loved staying at Harry's place. We had everything we needed there, surfboard and bikes included! Even wax for the surfboard was offered to us. :) We enjoyed chilling by the pool everyday. This is is really a special place and the prices are amazing! We will be going back there again in the future for sure.
