Playa del Coco condo description

This is a 2nd floor balcony condo with giant near full wall mirrors in the living room and master bedroom. No one above you to make noise walking around or sliding chairs in the middle of the night. Two bicycles with locks are included so you have transportation to and from town for grocery shopping. Fishing poles, fins and mask for snorkeling, air mattresses for pool, frisbees, a coffee maker, rice maker, blender, coffee bean grinder for fresh coffee, security safe for storing valuables, all included. This is only condo with such amenities right in front of the largest pool in the area.

A reverse osmosis water treatment has been imported from the US and installed in the kitchen so there is no need to buy bottled water. You have everything you need here at your fingertips.

Master bedroom has a queen bed with lamp stands on either side with lamps on top. There are separate ceiling fans and air conditioning units in the master bedroom, guest room, and main living area.

The balcony has 4 chairs, a table, and small circular table for guests. Upstairs balconies are substantially larger than downstairs units that don't have the privacy with people walking by, and the greater likelihood of something you may not want entering your dwelling (occasional iguana, visiting cat, or insects).

The beach is physically just a block away although the walk there is circular amounting to a couple blocks walk.

Grocery stores and restaurants are all within a mile and easy to get to by bicycle or walking. Taxi is only $2 to town.

Cocomarindo condo is a gated community with 24 hour security and guards at the entrance screening all visitors entering the complex.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Playa del Coco is more of a native town than tourist center. Described as a scruffy fishing village by a well known tour book, and not a polished Acapulco. You will find yourself mixing with natives of the area. The Mapache boat departing Thursdays is one of the best ways to see the beaches, go snorkeling, kayaking, and sun bathing on pristine beaches away from Coco.

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: I have been coming to Costa Rica since 1965 when I was in college. In 2004 I decided to purchase a upper condo in the newest development in planning in Coco at the time, Cocomarindo. It took years to complete but was finally finished in 2008. I speak Spanish and welcome guests from anywhere.

                  Why Playa del Coco:
                  This gated complex is about as close to the beach as you can get and own property. The state owns the first few hundred meters. Being an upper unit in the complex, it is more quiet, private, and has a prettier view from the balcony. It is the only unit offering the amenities we do: near full wall mirrors in the living room and master bedroom. Not caring to smell the odors of foods cooking we put in vents that exit to the exterior in the kitchen and bathroom, added amenities such as bicycles, snorkeling equipment, air mattresses and frisbies to make your stay more enjoyable.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The tropical gardens inside the complex are extremely well groomed and the pool is cleaned every morning and kept clear and balanced chemically so it is seldom if ever cloudy. The complex is well maintained with 24 hour security.
