  • Beautiful beach

    "We stayed at this condo for 4 days to visit the community. It's a lovely, out of the way place. The beach is long, beautiful, and clean. It's a good surfing beach sometimes too. Walking in the hills above the condos we saw howler and spider monkeys. The condo is well equipped and comfortable. Make sure to stock up on food and toiletries before arrival as stores are a ways away. The manager was very helpful as are the owners. Overall, a great vacation spot!"

    "My husband and I enjoyed a week at Ron and Gail's lovely home away from home after two weeks of traveling through Panama and the interior of Costa Rica. Ending up Beachside was the icing on the cake. The unit was perfect for us as it blended so well into the natural beauty of the area. The variety of wildlife right outside the door was astounding. We enjoyed the company of a large family of Howler Monkeys the second evening we were there from inside the screened porch for the better part of an hour. Every comfort and convenience was provided for within this unit that was necessary to relax in paradise. Everyone we met everywhere we went was kind and welcoming. I cannot say enough good things about the Management Team and the Security. It was truly one of the happiest places we have ever been. Thank you Ron and Gail for sharing with us. All of your travel tips were greatly appreciated and helped make this the vacation we really needed and thoroughly enjoyed. We hope to be back very soon for some more Pura Vida."

  • Great location, beautiful beach

    "Working with Sid was easy. he was very respectful of our privacy, but would respond any time we had a question. He has an absolutely beautiful villa at a reasonable price. We stayed in the larger villa on the middle floor. It was spotless when we arrived. We cooked in-home several times, and were not lacking for kitchen supplies for beans, rice, breakfasts, tacos, etc. Everything was there, and in good working order. He even had a colander. He gave us alternate directions to get to the Villa from SJO in order to avoid construction. He referred us to a pretty good tour operator who offered nice excursions for reasonable prices. His maid, Maritsa, was sweet and a great cook. She made us comida tipica one evening and it was REALLY really good. You should ask for her to cook for you. She was super timely with laundry - which meant we didn't have to pack as much! The villa itself is nestled in a hillside with a great view in the morning of the mountains. The pool below is a play-pool, which means that the water was quite warm in our week of travel. Still, after being beaten up by the ocean, it was very nice to just float and relax in the pool. The tropical landscaping around the property is very pretty. We saw a few interesting birds, and very pretty flowers. On our last morning, the howler monkeys gave us a show in the trees just outside the perimeter of the property. The walk to the beach is down a somewhat steep walk. You'll want to wear shoes. After being tossed around the ocean, the walk back up the hill can be a bit tiresome. It would be difficult for someone who lives a sedentary life, but just stop to breathe and you'll make it. Bring bug spray. Bring sunscreen. Bring shampoo. Sid provides shower soap, but it's what's available locally. The pix don't show bathrooms, but they were all very nice. Nice bath towels and linens. Beach towels were thin, but hey, dry off on the beach in the sun! The A/C worked just fine. In the hot week we were there, we opted to use it. Sid has you put down a cash deposit for damage. Just use the coasters to protect the finishes, and treat the place respectfully. He provides all the basic necessities and many nice amenites. Enjoy!!"

  • Amazing time!

    "The condo is everything described and more. Carol was great to work with arranging this vacation. She sent her recommendations, plus maps and how to get around. Made this easy as pie. Alban, the groundskeeper, is friendly and will show you the local animals & vegetation. As well, Alban keeps the pool very clean and the yard immaculate. The private pool is a bonus after wandering the town, the beach, and the walk up the hill. There is night time security which are friendly and will give you a hand anytime. The kitchen has everything you need but be aware of the water shortage at times during the day. Housekeeping was excellent, friendly and thorough. This vacation was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation so far. We will definitely be back! Thanks Carol!"
