Houses with a view

The houses on this ocean front hill have a great view of the beach. This is typical of the scenery north of Tamarindo about 15 minutes. Tamarindo is on a long stretch of beach. The coast north of Tamarindo is dotted with coves, small beaches, and rocky peninsulas.

This photo was taken in the Playa Flamingo area. Tomorrow I will show you how the people who live in the houses up this hill reach their homes. Playa Flamingo is very scenic, although my wife and I decided to buy our two condos in Tamarindo because we like to take long walks along the beach and we wanted to be right on the beach.

If you have not done so already, I respectfully recommend that you check out the photos of Varenna, Italy that we have posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. Varenna is located on the eastern shore of Lake Como, an Alpine lake north of Milan. I think Lake Como is one of the most beautiful spots on earth.

This is pretty much our idea of the perfect place for our dream house. Oh gosh, can we understand why you moved there!

There must be wonderful views from the top of that hill.

These are single homes, yes? Can't wait to see how owners and visitors get to their palatial destinations.

I'm sure they do have some lovely views! What a beautiful perch for a house.

This is just beautiful, like living in paradise.

I'm sure they have enviable views from up there, but like you, I'd prefer to be right on the beach.

DREAMY beach! I'd love to spend a holiday on that green hill...

The view must be spectacular. Don't know why but I haven't been able to get into your site for days now.

Although I'm not sure about the architecture, I would love to live in the house on top! :-)
