About Carlos Vargas
I live in a separate house on the same Condominium with my girlfriend, her son and 2 small dogs (a Yorkie and a Schnauzer). We love sports, good family and friend time, travelling, movies, eating good food... We work in our own businesses and normally are available in the condominium. If we were not around and there is anything required, at least one of us will normally be flexible to drive home and attend any special need! Count on us for any tips or help necessary to make the best out of your stay.
Carlos Vargas purchased this House in 2017
Why Carlos Vargas chose San Rafael Abajo
It's a gated community, very secure, very peaceful, near airport and near city. It is a great stop when arriving to CR or the day before leaving. The house is just 2 kms away from the main highway that goes to the Pacific beaches. 1 hour away from the first Pacific side beaches. The property is walking distance from a convenience store, a drug store, restaurants etc and the weather is normally sunny and warm!

Is always good to be back in this place! In a really good location near to the airport.
I really enjoy to staying in this place!
Thanks Jordy! A pleasure to have you. Take care :)
We enjoyed our stay at this unit!
Great experience! Owner very nice and fast to answer questions.
Beds linens and towels were clean. Very safe gated community.
Near activities and airport. A little less equiped than other HomeAway houses/condos that we rented before.
Lovely modern apartment in a gated community
The pool is refreshing and solar heated. It felt great! The apartment has a microwave, toaster oven, full stove/oven, refrigerator - all the modern conveniences one would expect to find in an American kitchen.
There are two parking spots that go with the apartment. That was great! They fit compact cars nicely. You could probably park a minivan there, but I'm not sure.
There is a small clothesline out back which was very handy for drying wet swimsuits.
The bedrooms are spacious. We had 8 people staying there and found it comfortable. I don't think that the photo in the description that shows an alcove with a sleeping area is in this apartment. There are three bedrooms. Two have double beds. One has a double bed and a bunk bed with a trundle bed underneath. It sleeps 10 people.
It was about 30 minutes from the Vamos Car Rental / Airport area. It was an easy drive and could be driven in less time if you had a better knowledge of the route. I liked the gated community. We felt secure in a foreign city.
Thank u Rebecca! It was great to have u and I am glad to read this detailed and good review. Welcome back anytime!
Safe location that is about 35 minutes to the airport. The air mattress deflated during the night.
Safe, but not comfortable for more then 7-8 people
Hi Kim. Thanks for the review, I do not agree with that. A deflated air mattress does not mean 7-8 people will not be comfortable. There are 5 real beds with capacity for 8 people in total in the house. The air mattresses are intended for occasions when there are 9 to 12 guests. It unfortunately failed for the first time during your visit. Any air mattress that fails will indeed be replaced and 12 people can be comfortable in this place.
The place was beautiful and secure but was not clean and that well equiped for cooking.
We loved the place but it was not as clean as we expect and the kitchen equipement is very basic.
A comfortable house, with a great location.
The house had everything as described. The location was perfect for moving around into San Jose and also ideal for taking off to the coast. The place was safe and it had some stores nearby to buy food and other amenities. Carlos was also very helpful specially with payment options. Will definitely look it up once again when I am back in Costa Rica.
