"This condo is first rate in all aspects. The furniture, the appliances, the AC, the beds…. Very, very comfortable.
The two King Suites each have an view and private, large balcony- the views and sunsets are amazing. The third bedroom looks out on the ‘other side’ of the bay and the view there is really nice itself.
Internet access was easy, reliable and fast. There are two flat panel TVs and, using the menu to switch to SAP mode made quite a few channels work in English (and impressed my 11 year old daughter immensely – one for dad!).
There is a guard to monitor the comings and goings. The condo is located on the top floor. There is an elevator and you can hear the ocean from both floors.
Now:…. The trek to and from the beach, while short in distance – maybe 2 blocks - is quite steep. Doable but you are going to feel it. It wasn’t a detriment for us and you can easily drive the very short distance if need be.
Around and About
The beach itself is very nice, not too crowded and certainly not overcrowded. A pleasant surprise.
The Condo is in a very nice neighborhood. Very comfortable and safe with a nice little shopping center nearby.
There are lots of fun little daytrip events right there. Surf lessons, snorkeling, zip lining, hiking, restaurants, shopping…... fun, easy.
Across the way is the Monkey Bar. If you go there and ‘buy a drink’ you can use their pool. They actually have three pools and the main one has a wet-bar, nice tanning lounge chairs and a super view of the ‘other side’ of the bay.
There is a restaurant called Coco Loco just down the beach… as short drive or a long walk. Great food, arrive an hour before sunset to get a table on the beach. That sunset you get won’t disappoint.
Special Places (Kenny/Phem) were great to work with. Clear and fast communication. Understandable paperwork. Good/relevant information about local events. Their office is about a block away from the Oceanica 807 so that was convenient as well. We arrived on Sunday night about 715pm… they were there and ready to go. Super easy.
We highly recommend this area of Costa Rica (not that we are big CR experts). We are so happy that we have already recommended this area and this unit to our friends and, I know it’s cliché’, but we are already planning a trip back for 2017 and will look to stay here again."

"we really enjoyed our Christmas holiday time with the family in this spectacular home and setting. We loved the Spanish style to the home. We were happy spending the entire day- starting with coffee in the rockers overlooking the jungle with all the birds on the top balcony. We loved the pool and patio area in the afternoons- very hot, though- but just the way we like it. We had our cocktail hour on the balcony at kitchen level, watching the sunset and enjoying the increased activity in the jungle. We enjoyed viewing the howler monkeys in the trees and all the different birds. In the evenings, we had our dinner by the bbq at another balcony/patio with the large round table . It cooled down in the evenings- but we were happy to use the air conditioning in the bedrooms at night. Going to the beach was simple- a ride down the hill to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Very simple to park along the beach edge, where we set ourselves up for the day with chairs and cooler. It's a bit of a ride into town so we tried to stock up as much as possible. The road can be quite steep up to the house so a 4 wheel drive is useful. At this time of year, it was dry and not a problem. The home and location met all our expectations and made for a very memorable vacation in Cost Rica!"

"My family (four kids ages 14-4) stayed here for the month of June. We absolutely LOVED it! What a great house in a beautiful location! It is quiet and secluded which is just what we wanted during our stay. It was within an hour drive of some great places to visit (Tamarindo to the north and Nosara to the south which are both fun places to visit but I was glad we weren't staying there - too touristy for us). There are plenty of great beaches in-between.
The home itself is clean and comfortable. Well equipped and furnished with everything you would need. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals (since we were there for a month we made most of our meals at home). Bridget (the home owner) and Mario (the property manager) put us in contact with a local fisherman so we had fresh fish which we prepared. It was delicious. We spent hours in the pool - it was always the perfect temperature an so refreshing.
Bridget (and Tom) are a pleasure to work with - so kind and responsive. We met Bridget while we were there and she is a lovely person. Such a pleasure to meet her!
The property manager is fantastic. He understands a lot of English and helped us with our Spanish immensely. If we had a question about the property or the surrounding area he was able to answer all our questions.
I would HIGHLY recommend staying here without any reservations. We LOVED it!"

"We arrived at Montelaguna Residence on February 1st, 2015 and departed March 31st.
This condo unit is one of the most beautifully appointed, well-equipped condos that we have ever had the good fortune to stay in. There is every available kitchen utensil, bath towels or any other amenity you can imagine. The beds are comfortable and the layout of this condo is superb. Because of the beautiful long balcony accessed by the master bedroom, living room and dining room sliding doors, made the use of the air continuing unnecessary. Beautiful stainless steel appliances including an ice-maker water maker fridge which we found quite useful.
Great supply of reading material, movies to watch and cd's to play.
All in all, with the addition of the huge private pool and with the luxury of choosing Samara Beach or Carillo beach which are only a stones throw away, this property was pure bliss.
And for the above reasons, that's why we have already booked this unit for next year!"
