Banyan from the beach
CBANY- Casa Banyan, standing just a few yards from the warm Pacific, and surrounded by its own walled tropical garden, is a traditional 3-story beach house adjoined by an independent bungalow apartment. A large gated parking area on the street side and an 18-meter lap-pool on the beach side complete this little piece of paradise.
Terra-cotta tile, solid wood and floor-to-ceiling windows give the main house at Casa Banyan a sunny and organic feel. On the first floor, past a generous foyer are two spacious bedrooms rimmed by windows and a wooden staircase leading to the second floor. Each ground-floor bedroom with private baths, sleeps two; one in two twin beds and the other in a queen-sized bed.
The second floor of Casa Banyan contains a kitchen and small television room with comfortable family-style furnishings and is walled to the west entirely by windows and glass sliding doors that display the Pacific panorama. A third floor loft bedroom tucked into the peak of the roof is accessible by a stairway in the TV room. It contains a queen-sized bed and boasts a small sunset-view porch.
A deck spans the length of the second floor and is furnished with an outdoor dining area, grill and rocking chairs. A catwalk connects this elevated outdoor area to a bali-style rooftop lounge on top of the beach-front bungalow.
The studio bungalow is a second completely independent living area that can sleep a total of four. The small complete kitchen and living area with a futon couch is separated from the bedroom area by a low wall. A full bath at the back of the bungalow opens off of the bedroom.
The west end of the property at Casa Banyan directly borders the beach, making it the perfect place for your family reunion, surf get-away or small beach wedding. The sandy beach in front of Casa Banyan is deal for swimming, safe for children and is popular among the local long-boarders.
Don't miss the chance to enjoy this homey beach-house with a touch of class.

Larry K. from Victoria, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2016 We are reluctant to give Casa Banayas a good review in case someone takes it away from us next time!Fantastic location and great 2 family accommodation. Well maintained and serviced with well stocked kitchen. Only thing missing was a kettle!Plan to return!
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Hi Larry - thanks so much for the great review! Casa Banyan is a great house in an amazing location. We hope to see you again soon!
A guest from Richmond, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 Unbelievable location and property. Beautiful views, great pool. Needs a lot of "spiffing up"--looking stale and dated. Needs more furniture on covered terrace--more sofas and more comfortable furniture. Inside needs new mattresses and beds and also more comfortable furniture in TV room. Although it's a top end location you're getting C+ quality ammenities. If they're going to charge this price, they need to improve interior quality. Also lots of broken pots poolside and there should be chairs to put out by beach in shaded palm tree area. Seems to have gone downhill over last few years. I would recommend to a friend only if significant changes and improvements are made in quality of furniture and accessories. But if you're in to basics then the location is unparalleled. But, for a 5 Star price you're not getting a 5 Star accomodation.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thank you for the review and feedback. The owner is going to be putting in some more comfortable mattresses and is continuing to make improvements. It is truly a great location right on the beach and you can't get much more centrally located. Thanks again and we hope to see you in the future.
A guest from Liberia, Guanacaste recommends this property. Stayed for 29 days in August, 2015 La propiedad es funcional aunque discreta, con un acceso a playa increíble, mucha tranquilidad y cerca de todo lo que se necesita para compras, servicios y demás.
David B. from Fremont, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2015 Great location on Tamarindo Beach. Easy walk to town. The house is beautiful. We had a group of ten people staying here and everyone was comfortable. Only negative is that with a large group the house can get noisy.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thanks for the great response and glad you had a wonderful time. We hope to see you again.
Codie B. from Los Angeles, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2015 We loved the house overall, but were promised wifi which never worked while we were there. That was a bummer since we were there for our wedding with 80 guests staying in Tamarindo and no way to communicate with them. Also, it wasn't explained to us that there would be 24 hour security or that there were hours at which we could entertain. Though there was a guard walking the premises who OFTEN opened the gate for guests, he wasn't always reliable. With no doorbell and a huge gate to the property, this was difficult. At best, we could stand in the window looking for guests to arrive - but again, we didn't have wifi to communicate when our friends and family showed up.The guidelines read that condo rentals had pool hours, but at our house, when we were in the pool after 10pm, the guard would turn off the pool light WHILE we were swimming. It was very confusing since we weren't alerted to the guard (who only spoke Spanish) or to any outside/pool hours.The property was also very well set up for our wedding day but we didn't know that - meaning, there is a completely separate and secluded suite which would have been perfect for me, the bride, to get dressed and never see the groom or grromsmen. Instead we paid for a hotel room, which wasn't necessary.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thank you for the review. The internet company was having issues throughout the week and took awhile for them to get it all sorted it but it appears that their improvement have been completed and the internet service has been more consistent recently. Making future guests aware of the wedding day separate suite is a great suggestion for future guests/brides. Congrats on your wedding and we hope you will come back and visit us again.
Jeannine K. from Carson City, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in December, 2014 Very smooth and easy transaction! Roomy house and beautiful grounds. Pool house was a hit with the 4 teens in our group.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations So glad you had a great time. We hope to see you again soon!
A guest from Ancaster, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2014 Fantastic ! Great staff, easy check in, ultimate beach front location. Relax by the pool stroll down the beach for a massage, short walk along the beach to town. If your looking for a great home base in Tamarindo this spot will be hard to beat.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thanks for the great review and so glad you had a great time!
Todd h. from Woodbine, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2014 The place is great but the bedrooms are very noisy, the Attic bedroom is the worst.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thank you for the review and we appreciate the comments. Regarding the attic bedroom, this room is a loft style bedroom with lower ceiling but is well maintained. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know and we can answer them.
A guest from Woodbine, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2013 A group of my friends stayed in the house at the end of February. It was a great house for a group of people. The location was great. It was right on the beach and just a few steps to the first resturtant on the beach. With many more places just steps away. We made many walks up and down the beach to the bars and resturants. The pool/patio area was awesome. You could sit and enjoy pool time and also watch the sufers in the ocean. The staff was great and very helpful! I would love to stay at this place again!!
Peter and Nichole W. from Vancouver, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in February, 2013 Banyan is an perfect house for a family vacation. It sits on swim friendly beach and is a close walk to town for activities, food, and shopping.The pool is incredible and so are the grounds.The attendants (pool/gardener and housekeeper) are very professional, friendly, and easy to work with! Both took care of our needs and always checked to see if we needed anything else.The upper-covered patio is a great place to relax in the evening and watch the incredible Tamarindo Sunset!No complaints, we will definately be back and rent Banyan again!RPM is GREAT to work with and did an great job from initial contact to exit.Pura Vida!
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Glad you had a great time and enjoyed this amazing home. Looking forward to seeing you again!
A guest from Walnut Creek, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Casa Banyan is beautiful. The location was excellent, on the beach and a close walk to town. We enjoyed the lap pool and the wonderful lanai above the bungalow. The cleaning and maintenance were delightful and professional. My only suggestion is a walk through with RPM upon arrival. We were not familiar with some of the appliances. The oven was a bit intimidating and difficult to use (light). Thus we never used it. The accident with the BBQ was very scary and I feel blessed and lucky that my husband was not hurt. It was a bit too close to catastrophe. The propane tank on fire and the small explosion could have turned our vacation into a nightmare.
frank h. from oak lawn, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2012 Best house I've ever rented. Great on duty staff and great location. 10 min walk downtown via beach. Nice town and the people were very nice.
4 Couples Stayed at Casa Banyan - Feb 26/12 to Mar 4/12
Rob Q. from Elora, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2012 Beyond expectations! Highly recommend - just a short walk along the beach into town. The pictures do not do it justice.Only improvement, it would have been nice to have been provided a tour upon arrival to let use know how everything worked. Perhaps this did not happen as we arrived on a Sunday
This was a great vacation house for a big group! Loved it!
A guest from Edmonton, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2011 Great house and service staff - everyone was extremely helpful to answer all of our questions and requests. We had some minor problems (air con not working, bathroom leak) which were attended to very quickly. Overall a great experience - thanks!
A guest from Seabeck, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2011 I stayed with four of my friends from college and the house was perfect. The only complaint that I had with the house, was that the care takers house did not have any AC. Overall, I would recommend that you stay at this house.
Christiane C. from Mississauga, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2011 I would highly recommend Casa Banyan for a small beach wedding or a simple vacation getaway for anyone! The house is stunning, the photos really don't do it justice! The property management and staff were all outstanding. The house has every amenity possible, the grounds are beautiful and the pool is outstanding, all right on the best part of Tamarindo beach and just a few minutes walk to everything! 5 stars all around!
A guest from NY, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2010 Great house, friendly, helpful staff, would highly recommend. Pipe burst in guest house 3x and no hot water in guest house during entire stay, but did not deter from a great trip and a beautiful home.
