The condo was just as it was described! It is on the fifth floor and you can see the water from the balcony! Beautiful view! We saw monkeys off in the distance each morning. The beds are firm but comfortable, and our 14 yo son slept fine on the couch bed. There are three main entrances to the beaches in Playa Langosta, and each is within walking distance of the condo. The beaches are each unique and offer something totally different. The kitchen is well stocked. We cooked breakfast each morning and ate on the patio. The BEST grocery store is the Auto Mercado. We used Natives Way for all of our excursions. We loved Cafe Tico and ate lunch there twice. We also enjoyed pizza on our last night at Pizzeria La Baula. We loved having a washer and dryer in the condo! Thank you Leonard family for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!
This was the perfect fit for my family as there are 6 of us and we fit comfortably in this amazing condo:)
Pura vida at its BEST!! Our first trip to Costa Rica could not have been better. The condo was gorgeous with comfortable furnishings, incredible views and perfectly located. The secured gated building has dedicated parking. The landlords provided multiple lists of activities, restaurants and sites. Our family learned to surf on the most desirable surfing areas in the world. We went zip lining, explored shops, ate amazing food and enjoyed meeting the friendly people of Costa Rica. We ate breakfast on one of the two balconies and played board games watching the sun set. Wake to the sound of the monkeys playing in the trees. The condo pool is lovely and the perfect way to relax after a morning of exploring. Don't hesitate plan your trip, you will never regret it.
We rented this condo after reading the glowing reviews from previous guests, and were pleased to see the reviews are spot on! The condo is spacious, beautifully decorated, and our family of four felt very at home here. It is a short walk to the town of Tamarindo (either on the road or via the beach!). We enjoyed walking on the beach to town so much that we returned our rental car on the second day (as it wasn't needed at all!). One evening we decided to take a cab back to the condo, as it started to rain--and it was a cheap ride ($5)---so really no need for a rental car if you aren't planning on exploring on your own. The activities we purchased (adventure trip to Rincon de la Vieja, estuary tour, and sunset sailing) included transportation in the cost. We also took paddleboard/surf lessons while we were here (with Nicholas at the Langosta Beach Club---he's great!!). Jairo at Langosta Beach Club helped coordinate all of our activities--and he was extremely helpful and friendly! A couple of days during our 10 day stay here (initially we booked 8 nights--but loved it so much we extended our trip two additional nights) we simply relaxed by the beautiful pool here at the Peninsula. In addition to the beauty inside the condo, the grounds are exceptionally maintained, and the staff all made us feel welcome. Another big plus was daily visits from howler monkeys (two of the afternoons we counted over 20 at a time!!) in the trees outside of the condo (beside of Walter's Fish and Cheeses (a great place to eat/visit with incredibly friendly owners!)). Nicole (the condo owner) also provided a very informative binder that she created for her guests. It included all kinds of info, from emergency numbers, restaurant and tour recommendations, to beach access, etc. Both Nicole and Leo (from Blue Moon) were extremely responsive and helpful when questions arose while planning our trip, and while we were here. We look forward to our next opportunity to visit Costa Rica (and will definitely be returning to Peninsula when we do!). Pura Vida!! I haven't felt this relaxed in years!!
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay in Langosta/Tamarindo. The condo was beautifully furnished and was equipped with everything we could possibly need! It had a gorgeous view from the balcony, and the complex had a wonderful pool to relax by when we were not out by the beach.
The condo is in a secure gated community, is within a short distance to the beach and within 15 minutes to town where there are many restaurants to choose from. The owners were wonderful and gave us many tips for places to eat and things to do/see. We are definitely planning a return visit!
Great weather, beautiful beaches, and a good place to learn to surf. Friendly locals, very helpful, lots of great places to eat, small town where you can walk everywhere.
Peaceful, Easy Feeling.....the vacation of our dreams!

We have been wanting to go to Costa Rica for quite a while and when we finally decided to visit this wonderful place, we wanted to be sure to stay somewhere that offered all the comforts of home and then some. This condo was not only beautiful with its gorgeous decor, but it was incredibly comfortable. Everything from the sofas and beds, to the patio furniture were comfy and cozy. We loved having the full kitchen to cook breakfast (on most days) before heading out for whatever adventure awaited us. The patio and view from it are awesome. The bathrooms are both very large and the jacuzzi tub in the master is wonderful. I found myself there a few times with a glass of wine. My husband and son both loved the fact that there was Netflix available to watch some TV when we had down time and we all loved the condo pool. It was a great size with lots of lounge chairs.The condo has 24 hour security with a gated entrance, so we felt very safe and sound too. The condo has everything you could want....extra bath towels, beach towels, hair dryers, lots of cookware and some essential kitchen gadgets like a corkscrew. :)
The condo is in THE BEST location. It's not in the middle of the liveliness of the main street in Tamarindo, but is close enough to walk if you wanted (we usually drove though, which takes 5 or 6 minutes). It's next door to some great restaurants--El Sappo for Pizza (we went twice) and Walter's Fish and Cheeses (a cute little shop run by the nicest man who will make you a plate of delicious smoked fish, meats and cheese). We also very much enjoyed the resort across the street, Cala Luna. I had a massage and facial there (all outdoors in a private, beautiful setting) and we spent some time at the pool/bar there and watched the sunset from their beach access area. So breathtaking. The staff there is beyond friendly.
In town, there are so many places to eat, so many happy hours to enjoy and lots of areas on the beach for having fun. My 12 year old son took a surf lesson one day and other days just had fun on a boogie board.
You can really make this vacation what you want. This spot is perfect for families like ours who want some peace and quiet (I actually finished reading a novel on this vacation!), but it also offers many adventures that are close by. I would highly recommend Peninsula #56 for all of the reasons above and the owners are extremely helpful, friendly, thoughtful people. Top notch! We would stay there again for sure!
