Back to our condo

Upon returning from my walk along the beach that I have shown during the last few weeks, here is the view of our condo building that awaits me from the beachfront gate that divides our condo from the beach.

All of the condos on the first two floors are two bedroom units. The third floor are three bedroom penthouse units that have interior stairs to a fourth floor master bedroom suite with a patio for the master bedroom above the main patio/balconies.

One of the penthouse units is listed for sale for a little over one million U.S. Dollars. That may raise some eyebrows for prices in a developing country, but Tamarindo is full of foreigners and the housing is marketed primarily to Americans and Canadians. And the prices compare very favorably to the price of condos right on the ocean in California or Hawaii. It is possible to buy condos in Tamarindo in a price range from less than $100,000 or more than $1 million, depending on location (particularly distance the beach) and amenities.

Our condo is on the second floor just beyond the pool. We like that location because the view of the ocean is better than the ground floor and we do not have the people hanging around the pool right next to our condo.

This week we are showing photos of the Atacama Desert on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site, including the highest altitude geyser field on earth, high in the Andes Mountains in Northern Chile.

The colours are just great and I also like the contrast to the greenery.

I think that you should have a CDP convention in this little spot of Paradise!

I've always loved the colors of your building.

A nice place. I see sunny spots and shady spots to enjoy the pool. My dermatologist would march me to the shady spots.

Strong colors and great design, your photo looks like a developer's brochure :-)

I'm amazed by the real estate prices you mention. I assume no local can afford to live there. :-(
I find that a bit disturbing. Does that create some sort of rich ghetto effect?

Beautiful location, I am glad you own the place like that one.
