Early in our property search, we had the good fortune of connecting with Christian Cavanaugh with Hidden Coast Realty. His initial response to our inquiry was comprehensive but, most importantly, kind. It was the style of his communication and responsiveness that set him apart from the rest. He took our search seriously and made the process easy.When we finally met in person to start showings, it was like meeting an old friend with all the best connections, where we hoped to relocate our family. In-person, Christian was an even better communicator; with such positive and chill energy, he could make you think the sun was shining even on a cloudy day. Any additional questions we had on properties were promptly and thoroughly answered. He accompanied us to the home and business we bought three times without hesitation.Once we went under contract, the communication remained strong. Then, we had the pleasure of meeting his great associate, Bruno Grenier, who worked diligently and helped negotiate on our behalf through closing. Christian and Bruno are a solid team who are very responsive when you need it most when making an international move. Unsurprisingly, their local contacts work in the same style, from legal counsel to a great local builder.Christian and his team are a hidden gem that we could not recommend more highly to anyone looking for the best agents in town. Hidden Coast Realty is the agency you want to buy a home from here in Guanacaste. They are so much more than just realtors and undoubtedly have their client's best interests at heart from start to finish and thereafter. Thank you for making our dreams come true and being such genuinely wonderful people!
Working with Hidden Coast Realty Tamarindo was an absolute pleasure! Their expertise, dedication, and attention to detail made this entire somewhat challenging homebuying process possible. Bruno and his team bring a unique blend of local expertise and global professionalism to the real estate scene. Their in-depth knowledge of the Tamarindo area helped navigate and eventually find the property fitting our profile perfectly. Furthermore, their understanding of the complexity of real estate transactions and ability to coordinate all aspects of legal, banking and property management made the entire process remarkably transparent and streamlined.In conclusion, if you're in search of a real estate partner that is genuinely committed to your unique needs, Hidden Coast Realty Tamarindo is the team to trust.All the Best, Senderos 10C

Cristian fue mi agente de bienes raíces para la compra de un lote y la experiencia fue excepcional. Desde el principio, mostró gran profesionalismo y transparencia en su comunicación. Su conocimiento del mercado y dedicación para encontrar el lote fue excelente, pero lo que más me impresionó fue su capacidad de ir más allá de lo esperado para asegurarse de que todo el proceso fuera lo más sencillo y sin contratiempos. Siempre estuvo disponible para responder preguntas y solucionar cualquier problema, incluso aquellos que no estaban directamente relacionados con su trabajo como agente de bienes raíces.Gracias a Cristian, encontré el lote perfecto y lo recomendaría sin dudarlo como agente de bienes raíces. Si estás buscando un agente de bienes raíces que vaya más allá de lo esperado, Cristian es la persona indicada para ti.
Hidden Coast Realty advised us on our real estate purchase in Coasta Rica to our complete satisfaction. - Joost Hauwert is an ultimate real estate professional. He knows exactly what to look for in a property in Costa Rica. He is very dedicated and reliable. He has continued to advise us on many issues beyond the purchase of the property and is already assisting us with another, much larger project. FIVE STARS and a very big recommendation.
We had a great outcome buying property with the assistance of Christian, Bruno and the team they assembled to support the process. Living in the U.S. we lacked experience and had concerns about our ability to educate ourselves on the nuances of buying in Costa Rica. That's where Hidden Coast excels - from identifying potential property to closing the purchase, it was seamless and transparent. Highly recommend!
Our experience with Hidden Coast and Bruno Grenier was nothing short of extraordinary. We purchased property that needed quite a bit of legwork to put together and also keep together. We ran into some unexpected issues that kept us from being there and Bruno put in a ridiculous amount of time and effort to pull it all together. I don't even know when he sleeps as he seems to be working all the time. The amount of problem-solving skills this guy possesses is truly a gift. I can't even thank you enough for the amount of help you provided us to keep it stress-free on our end with everything we had going on.
As Canadians we had the most incredible experience purchasing a condo in Tamarindo from Hidden Coast Realty!Christian Cavanagh and Bruno Grenier not only found us a place and negotiated the price…but continued to assist us in acquiring a bank account in Costa Rica, purchase appliances and furniture, hire contractors to do renovations and also promote it as a rental property. (We plan to eventually retire there in the winter!)Their professionalism and integrity, as well as their support and friendship has been unparalleled!! There is no way we could have managed without them!!We are truly indebted to Bruno and Christian for helping us realize our dream!! They are simply the best!!
I have lived in Tamarindo for many years and have purchased/sold multiple properties over time. I recently purchased a lot in town with Bruno and it was a real pleasure to work with him. Timely communication, efficient and a very smooth transaction. I would definitely use him again in the future.Nir Naor
Christian helped us find a great long-term rental that was exactly what we were looking for. He's super responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommend him.
If you are looking for a reliable, honest, hard working realtor this is the place! Everybody here is very friendly and polite and willing to help. Christian has helped me with several things and I have never been disappointed! We have worked on things large and small, as soon as I tell him what I am looking for he immediately starts working on it. One thing I like about them here is that they are honest with you. They will not just tell you what you want to hear to make a sale like so many do. They are here for the long term relationship not the one and done sales. The team works together to find what you want. If you’re looking for a management company, a rental property or looking to buy, this is the place!!!
Christian has been wonderful and 100% responsive for any issues we have brought to his attention. He as made renting this property a wonderful experience and i would recommend anyone to use his service in the future. It has been a complete pleasure doing business with them
I highly recommend Bruno as a real estate agent. I had an unusual property for a unique potential buyer that other agents were not interested in putting in the time and work to market and sell. Bruno took on this challenge and helped sell my property in a quicker time period than I expected and for full asking price. His experience, professionalism, contacts, work ethic and personality all contributed to making the process and the sale a good and profitable experience for me. Bruno was a real pleasure to work with and always was available to provide his helpful insights and knowledge. I feel fortunate to have found him to sell my property.
Great guys, super Pro and well connected Ended up finding me my ideal spot to built my dream house.
We recently purchased an ocean view lot from Hidden Coast Realty and were very pleased with their knowledge of the area as well as their professionalism throughout the entire process. Both Joost, the owner and Steven, the local agent were very thorough and easy to work with while ensuring we found the lot where we will build our dream house. I highly recommend Hidden Realty for your next CR purchase…Pura Vida !!!
Bruno and the team went above and beyond to find our dream beach house for our group of 8 ladies that have of course varying tastes in architecture and amenities. He was able to pinpoint what was most important to our group and he was able to find us the perfect home to enjoy with all our families. From beginning to end, Bruno overextended himself along with the rest of the Hidden Coast Realty team. When we initially were reaching out to various realtors in the Tamarindo community, Bruno was the first to respond, has had open communication throughout the entirety of the sale, and has held our hand through every step of the process of purchasing our first home in Costa Rica. If you're looking for a great Realtor and group, this is definitely the place to look!
There aren't enough stars to properly rate Bruno and Hidden Coast Realty. Start to finish above and beyond knowledge of the area, friendliness, and listened to us so he knew what we were looking for. Bruno has gone beyond finish. Our new best friend in Costa Rica, helping us with every connection and service we need to get our new house into the vacation rental market.I wouldn't go anywhere but Hidden Coast Realty.
Second Post: This is the second time I've used Hidden Coast Realty, and nothing has changed (see my first post below). These guys are knowledgeable on every property in the Tamarindo area, they are always the first to know when a property comes on the market, and they know the value of every property in the area. If you’re selling, they’ll get the best offer. If you’re buying, they’ll get you the best price. If you’re unfamiliar with the area, they’ll walk you through the buying/selling process and give you excellent advice along the way. Take my advice don’t shortchange yourself by using another realtor.First Post: Hidden Coast Realty is the best realty I’ve ever worked with. I’ve bought and sold many properties and no other realtor has come close. My realtor was Bruno Grenier, and this guy was friendly, knowledgeable, and always familiar with the area/property I was interested in. I can’t say enough good things about them. Do yourself a favor and give these guys a call before you look at any property. I highly recommend them.
I have used Bruno’s and Hidden Cost Realty services for the purpose of both renting and later buying/purchasing property and I was beyond satisfied both times. I cannot praise Bruno enough for everything he has done for me and the high quality service he provides. Bruno’s humanity, humility, professional skills bound together with grace, personal attention to detail and kind manner are simply unmatched. Bruno was able to bridge the gap between the Costa Rica tico time and my western desire to tackle things in a timely manner when it comes to the property I can now call my own. He tended to my requests promptly at all hours with his precise and calm demeanour, which I am certainly most thankful for. Bruno has a special skill of somehow marrying the pura vida attitude with a dedicated and exacting approach you’d expect from a Swiss watch as the saying goes. I’d put my trust in Bruno wholeheartedly any day without hesitation, as I know the outcome will be most agreeable. Thanks to Bruno and HiddenCostRealty, I was able to find a place to call home, jump through all the hoops and secure it with just the right person on my side to make the job smooth and satisfactory. I will certainly be a return customer should the need arise again.Show quoted text
Joost, Christian and the entire team at Hidden Coast Realty have done a 5 star job. Really they have gone far beyond 5 stars. Joost took us to a number of properties. We made an offer on a house that did not go through. Joost reassured us that is wasn’t meant to be. Which led us to the best find ever. A 2 bedroom 2 bath steps from the beach. We were in the U.S. when our offer was accepted. Since we were outside of Costa Rica we relied heavily on Joost and his long term experience in Guanacaste. He did not disappoint. We arrived 10 days after closing meeting Christian with keys in hand. Joost had taken it upon himself to cover the utilities and pool maintenance until we arrived. What a relief to arrive in our new home with power, water, and a clean pool. Besides walking us through the purchasing process and numerous financial forms, Hidden Coast took the time to walk us through how we can pay our utilities, property taxes, home owners insurance, arranged their handyman, Reynaldo, to install an outdoor garbage container, and other necessary fixes, acted as translator to the air conditioner service men, and more. This is truly beyond any level of service we have received from any agent in the US. After seeing listings with 5 other agencies in Tamarindo, I can tell you do not waste your time. There is only one team you should have working on your behalf, Hidden Coast Realty.
You could not ask for a better realtor than Bruno Grenier. At every step of the process, Bruno went above and beyond our expectations. Our list of requirements was long and specific, and over several days viewing properties in person with Bruno, we grew to appreciate his meticulous attention to detail, keen understanding of the market and valuable advice. After we left Costa Rica, we placed our trust in him to find the perfect home for us, and he proved that our trust was well placed. After the sale was complete, Bruno continued to be an invaluable help in obtaining all the goods and services we required. If you’re looking for an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and hard working realtor who you can trust to faithfully act in your best interest, call Bruno Grenier.Sincerely,Lara HorganLaguna Niguel, CA
