  • Slice of heaven

    "We recently returned from our stay at Naxos in Playa Langosta. The condo had everything we needed and the views were spectacular. The condo itself was very nicely decorated, the beds were comfortable and we always felt very safe in the gated condo. The pool area is gorgeous and most of the time we had the entire area to ourselves. We used the BBQ on many occasions and it worked wonderfully. This condo is a very short walk to the beach or if you take another 5 minutes past Barcelo Langosta there is a really beautiful sandy beach where you can spend the day watching the surfers and swim. We never walked to town as we had my father with us who had bad knees but it would not have been difficult along the beach at all. It's just a $5 taxi ride to Tamarindo and taxis are everywhere so we never had any problems getting a taxi when we needed it. I corresponded with Donna many times prior to our arrival and she was always very helpful and informative. If you're looking for a place that is clean, comfortable, safe and relaxing look no further."

  • The best

    "Our family of 6 stayed at this villa for one week. Verda was wonderful to deal with - very responsive and warm. The villa itself is stunning. The decor beautiful and tasteful. There was enough space that 6 adults were able to feel privacy and not be in each others face all the time! There was a welcome basket when we arrived that included hand made coasters with our names on them as well as a bib - Verda had remembered that my daughter is 28 weeks pregnant! Little touches like that were evident throughout the villa - beautiful pictures, lovely glass art, bright and cheery. The view from the outside living space is spectacular and we spent most of our time out there if not at the pool just several steps away where there were very few people, if any. The beach is kind of small, and not the most lovely beach I've ever seen, and its a bit of a hike back up ( some of our gang drove down) however that was not an issue for us as we were happy to hang out at the pool and outside the villa. The kitchen is extremely well equipped - we used the BBQ several times and had lovely meals in the beautiful dining room. All appliances were great and there was a ton of space. I would highly recommend this property!!"

  • Great get away

    "We found this to be just what we were looking for. We found the accommodations great- well stocked kitchen so we could dine here when wanted. We walked to the fish store and grilled our fish - or enjoy some of the fun restaurants close by. Or a short walk to the bakery for fresh bread or sweet treats or smoothies was also a nice option for some. Having the local fresh fruit was also a highlight. We love having the pool - a place to relax-cool off-and read our books. The beaches with the sunsets-- of course spectacular. The club at Mar Vista which is close and beautiful view- and also offering Gluten Free options. Love it- and hope to be back to enjoy it again. Thanks for providing us a nice option- affordably and with a very pleasant place to stay!"

  • Quiet and peacefull

    "Pro’s: The house sits on a beautiful and peaceful piece of beach. On average I’d say there were no more than 20 other people walking/playing on the 3 miles of coast. The ocean is warm, waves were perfect for a 4 year old and the undertow was light. Boogie boarding was a daily ritual. The pool was engineered perfectly, shallow part for kids, deep portion for adults and a nice sitting area in the other corner. Weather was consistent, ~95, ~75 no clouds. Thank goodness for the new AC and fridge. The house sits perfectly on the plot. The house was clean and Thomas / Janet were always there by 9am to tend to other matters. Joan, Dervin and G were accommodating and great to work with. They had the screen doors repaired and lubed as they didn’t move well. Neutral: The house has a security system and a local nightly security guard. I appreciate safety but at the same time it made some of us uneasy. The security system is loud! No shortage of little bugs and ants. They don’t bite but you’ll find them in the kitchen and we would find ants crushed in the bed with us. You’ll hear critters running on the roof in the AM - the roofline and walls are sealed very well, no worries. Con’s: The house is showing its age. It’s built very well, just needs a good craftsman to give it a once over. Our bedroom had some paint bubbling off the walls, some doors are warped and really loud, the shelving system in two of the bedrooms were pulled off the wall. We found 2 cockroaches, 1 in our bedroom and 1 in the common bathroom that we quickly killed. The dishwasher was serviced 4 times and never worked properly. The lounge chair brackets were rusted or broken on two of four. The umbrella could only be used about 5% of the time because it was flimsy – it flew out one day and needed to be repaired by Thomas. The wi-fi had difficulty connecting with our Apple devices. Weirdly enough, the one Android phone and Windows computer connected without issues the entire trip. The 4 iPads and 5 iPhones only had wi-fi for ½ the trip. Overall, it was a quiet and fun house to visit – you rent it for the great pool, good ocean view, laid back local establishments and relaxing area. When I have time I will add notes to my trip advisor page."
