Property description

Alegro Family Vacation Condo is an Award winning, top rated, garden view vacation property that is constantly updated and refurbished. It's at 3000 feet with good breezes through the Santa Ana valley, just west of Escazú, Costa Rica.

NOTE: Coming by mid year, extra features like a gas BBQ on the patio, new patio umbrella & top quality bread machine to create an even better kitchen and living experience.

Even though it's easier to have a rental vehicle (Parklands can have you welcomed at the airport and shuttled to the condo, as well as get you honest quotes and have the vehicle of your choice delivered to the condo) Optionally: Buses are every hour during the day. Walking distance to upscale small supermarket/deli/bakery and restaurants. Van & Driver quotes are available for small groups and fun day tours from the condo organized by Parklands' Travel.

Alegro Family Vacation Condo has premium features for couples, families and small groups of friends. This lodging option is Peaceful, Relaxing, Comfortable and Safe - A beautiful quality upscale condo in the green belt, on the western edge of the city, with second-to-none customer attention, just 20 minutes from downtown San Jose, and 50 minutes from Pacific Beaches.

Alegro Family Vacation Condo has a garden view and is conveniently near a children's playground, but located safely away from the pool. The two adult and two children's swimming pools are just a quick one minute walk, but they are far enough removed to avoid the annoying noise, group parties, and loud conversations that poolside condos suffer!

Start your Costa Rican day with a great coffee or juice under the large umbrella on your spacious private terrace with a view of beautiful landscaped tropical gardens and the play area. With the morning year-round sunshine, walk in the green zones, later, relax in the swimming pools, grab a game of tennis, freshen up, and head out for some shopping at the supermarket/deli/bakery or a great lunch at one of the restaurants/cafes just 10 minutes safe walk away, then head home, call in local grilled chicken, or pizza, light the candles, pour the wine, and just sit back, snuggle between Alegro's big cushions and enjoy a great movie or mini series on the huge 50" flat-screen TV, before relaxing in a wonderful bed with a great book, and then getting a fantastic night's rest.

Alegro Family Vacation Condo is located in the fast-growing south-west of San Jose, with direct easy access to Prospero Fernandez Expressway and Caldera Highway (Route 27) - the fastest highway in Costa Rica. The condo is just 6 minutes west from the Forum in Lindora/Santa Ana, 12 minutes west from Multiplaza Escazu Mall, and 20 minutes west from Parque Sabana Sur, downtown San Jose. You will also be about 15 minutes south from SJO - San Jose Airport, and less than 50 minutes from the Pacific Coast. Alegro Premium Vacation Condo has a unique location, with amazing (can't get lost) fast expressway access via the new 27 highway. With your rental car or by taxi, you feel so close to the most modern zones of San Jose, but then you realize just how close you are to the volcanoes and the Pacific beaches for day trips, too.

Alegro Family Vacation Condo is ideal for couples, families or small groups of friends...with it's outdoor patio with BBQ for dining under the umbrella, two bathrooms, two private bedrooms plus a den area, and two more couches that can be converted into sleeping space. Sleeps 1 to 5 ideally, and up to 8 (and could sleep up to 11 for a small group short-stay for a night or two of debrief before heading to the airport or for the first nights to recover and brief after arriving in Costa Rica).

This modern vacation condo enjoys modern ceiling fans and corner fans throughout, good screens are on all windows for your comfort and safety, a nice landscaped garden view towards the kids play area, BBQ areas, and the pool. It's very clean, tastefully furnished and comes with a modern fully equipped kitchen.

For fun, there's international cable TV on three flat screen TVs, BluRay movies, wireless broadband internet, free secure parking for your rental car, and even a washing machine and dryer.

As a Parklands Central Valley guest, you will enjoy complimentary access to the beautiful swimming pools (kids and adults), kids play ground, tennis courts ($), basket ball courts, doggy park, park lands and lagoon (feed the ducks!), running trail as well as to the charcoal BBQ Kiosk areas near the pool (with advance reservation). Guests get 20% off the menu at the local Italian/Mediterranean restaurant, just 10 minutes walk from the condo.

Optional daily housekeeping can be arranged. Weekly housekeeping is often included in extended stays but must be requested and included in any quote.

Please message us for more info if you see Alegro Family Vacation Condo is booked for your dates, Parklands also exclusively offers the beautiful Cedro Premium Vacation Condo in the same building on the 7th (top) floor (with elevator), as well as other modern premium condos in Costa Rica's Central Valley (Real Cariari & Downtown / Paseo Colon / La Sabana - in San Jose/Central Valley of Costa Rica) as well as Panama.

Parklands Group's good value premium condo rates are hard to beat when it comes to the quality! Amazing facilities, comfort, security and free recreational activities that are all included.

Owner info

Parklands Group

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We started by buying a condo and began creating and designing a beautiful living area inside, to match the beauty of the landscaped park lands outside. As more and more folk chose to stay, we improved what has become Alegro Family Vacation Condo. We also created more beautiful properties throughout the Central Valley and a range of complementary services so our guests wouldn't need to worry about their stays. We are professional travel planners for anyone needing authentic honest help in Costa Rica & Panama.

Why the Owner Chose Guácima, Costa Rica:
We loved the location, the 24/7 safety for kids, and the beautiful green tropical landscaping, play ground, pools and parks as well as the way you can walk 10 minutes safely to the supermarket open from 6am to 10:30pm, and the cafes/restaurants, too. We liked the condo having a spacious outdoor patio was a real bonus for outdoor dining and drinks. We added a Gas BBQ. And the umbrella gives guests privacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
While it's easiest to have a vehicle, this is a modern secure lifestyle complex, with pools, parks and space that is safe and there is public bus available each hour during the day. We love the view of the kids play area, landscaped gardens and park with pond, the large condo patio, too :-) We love the close-ness to everything. A day trip to the Pacific beaches, just minutes from the coolest mall in the country, and all the other modern amenities of the capital and airport. We love the safety, the green spaces, the clean air, and the weather. Close to San Jose (and with fast access) but not right in the city.
