Quiet location with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Monte Perla #1 Dec. 20-29th 2016. The condo had just been repainted, there were new mattresses on the beds, new linens, curtains, etc. Had amazing sleeps!! Having 3 air conditioners (each bedroom and living room) was great as everyone liked a different temperature for sleeping. As we were 4 (2 adults, 9 year old and 15 year old) our teenager decided to sleep on the hide-a -bed which he found fine. We were able to prepare our own meals without any issues. There were many pots and pans that were in good condition, the kitchen was clean. We enjoyed viewing the sunsets from our patio - it is a truly amazing view being up on the hill looking out on the ocean. We spent many hours at the pool with our kids in the late afternoon. It was very clean with lounge chairs to enjoy either the sun or shade. They cleaned the pool daily. As it is a smaller complex the pool area is quiet. It was nice not being on the main street. You could not hear all the noise from the clubs and concerts that were going on. It was a nice walk, no more than 5 minutes to the beach and shops. We did work up a sweat coming back up the hill in the afternoon heat, but the pool or a "refreshing" drink took care of that. The supermarkets are very close by to get groceries. The owners were in contact by e-mail making sure everything was up to par. A small issue with a blocked condenser hose on the air conditioner was dealt with within a couple of hours by the property management. The owners also followed up with us to ensure again that it was corrected to our satisfaction. The building is well constructed, you do not hear any other people from the other units. It appears to be maintained well, there is onsite security during the night and it is gated. The safe in the condo worked well and held everything we needed - just remember the code needs to be 6 digits long! The closet in the master bedroom was very large and there are dressers in the bedrooms. The washer and dryer were great to have! We have stayed in many rental properties and this property met our expectations and is priced fairly. We would not hesitate to rent again! We had Christmas dinner at Pangas restaurant - amazing and classy being on the beach - walking distance from the condo towards the estuary.

Stunning views, great pool, effective floor plan, large windows and great outdoor eating area

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this complex and would recommend it to others. The pool is a lovely oasis, sheltered from the hubbub of a bustling, fun tourist town. It was so nice to be up on this hill to enjoy the ocean breeze and take in the sunsets. I had a six month old baby at this location and found the layout to be good for naps without having to tiptoe around. I would highly recommend this place on the basis of the fair and professional owners and management; they are dependable and trustworthy, something that is the most critical in renting a VRBO.

Poorly maintained rental condo...........

  • 1 of 5

Enjoying the last few days in Monte Perla, Tamarindo, Costa Rica! It will be 27 nights that we spent here! The ocean views, sunsets, and in general countryside is breathe taking, however the condo did not live up to expectations at the price charged! The entire condo needed amake over....

Shall I start at the beginning when I was checking out the condo only to find that I had to finish the wash from the people before me, fold and dry towels & sheets and the front door which had lost its seal & we woke up one windy morning with piles of sand on the inside . .

I was embarrassed to have my sister-in-law stay in the spare room, as the curtains were so badly stained & dirty! And the room had a funny smell to it. The closet in that room is a joke, as the rod couldn't hold any thing over a couple of shirts.

The kitchen was lacking in several areas for long term renters. Not enough plates for 6 people, not a full set of drink glasses, wine glasses or even coffee cups. Had to wash some pots before I even used them and the fry pans needs to be replaced as the coating is peeling. I even had to purchase dish cloths.The ceramic tile was easy to clean but with so many pot marked chips in it, it looked dirty all the time.

The patio would have been great to sit at if the outdoor ceiling fan worked! The furniture there had seen better days, especially when you look around at what the other condos have! The screen door would have been nice to use if the screen was repaired.

Tv worked, good wifi, poor window coverings for keeping the sun out at night or maintaining a dark room for extra company sleeping on the sofa.

The master bedroom was spacious, but lacked a proper dresser to put away your clothes. Again, the curtains were filthy! Owners should really invest in new sets of beds, foam mattresses were deteriorated to the point of being rock hard to sleep on, consequently my husband slept on the couch which was newer with comfy cushions. The master bathroom showed signs of some kind of water damage, on the ceiling which looked dirty & showed the further lack of up keep needed.Oh, did I mention the safety deposit box that doesn't work and we contacted the property manager he never showed his face or responded.

Monte Perla is a nice place to stay in Tamarindo, but just not in unit # 1 for the rental price!...

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing your review. Your comments are valuable to us, as they help us in our committed effort to ensure a worry free stay. We are sorry to hear that your stay at our condo did not meet your expectations. In your review, you state that the condo was not ready when you arrived and that laundry had to be done. This is the first time we have heard of this. It is our expectation that any guest upon check in notify us immediately if the unit appears dirty (as outlined in the rental agreement). We are investigating this issue to further prevent this from occurring. Please know that this isn’t a common problem. Rest assured our housekeeping staff works hard to provide a clean environment for guests. We appreciate your comments regarding upgrades to the property. Our commitment to investing in our property will continue this winter with fresh paint and new window treatments. We will also be purchasing some additional kitchen items as well. At times we have had items go missing/broken and as we are not in the country we are unaware of the issues until it has been brought to our attention, thank you for doing so. We have reviewed the door sweep, safety deposit box, and outdoor ceiling fan and all are in good working order. I do note that there are two switches that control the fan, which may have caused some confusion. Thank you for staying with us, and again our most sincere apologies.

Our experience was lacking.

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived, one of the bedroom air conditioners was not working. (The thermostat was set on 59 so I new immediately it had not been working for the previous occupant). Since it was 92 during the day and 82 at night an AC is a requirement for sleeping. Ultimately my husband and I had sleep in the air conditioned den on a small lumpy sofa bed (with our feet dangling off) for the first 3 days. The local property manager wouldn't return calls so we had to reach out to the owners to finally get it fixed on the third day. I was informed it's a part-time venture for the local property manager, so I guess it's not a priority. The owners verbally offered a price adjustment, but it never materialized past the talk stage.

Overall the condo needs a $1000 refresh with paint repair, drapes, door adjustments, baseboards, etc. The complex is also getting tired and needs a help to repair some of the cracked steps, standing water, dead landscape, cracking walls, etc. Five years ago this might have been an A+ property, but now it's time to handle some maintenance items.

There were some other issues with the cookstove and one of the toilets, but I think you get the idea.

On the plus side it has the best water pressure we've ever encounter and lots of hot water.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, it is unfortunate that you did not enjoy your experience. We have three separate air conditioning units in our condo, one unit in our master bedroom stopped working at the time of the guest’s arrival. We stayed at our unit shortly before this tenants arrival, with no bookings in between our stay and this tenants stay, and we had the air conditioner in the bedroom repaired during our stay. Unfortunately, the repair did not last, and once this guest notified us, we immediately had taken efforts to replace the a/c unit in the bedroom. Both bedrooms in the condo have brand new air conditioners installed and work very well. We have spoken to our property manager, who has a physical location and has a number of employee’s who are available to deal with any concerns, who was unaware of this guests calls which were not returned. We apologize if any calls were not returned as we expect and strive for good communication with all of our guests to ensure their needs are reasonably met. At any time we can be contacted by phone or email. I personally spoke with these guests a number of times during their stay and believe their concerns were dealt with promptly and reasonably. Unfortunately, it did take longer then we liked to replace the air conditioner as we were contacted on a Saturday night, and the replacement a/c could not be installed until Monday morning. Our Condo building is undergoing seasonal repairs that don’t typically happen until the start of the dry season. The rainy season has just ended, and there was some wear and tear caused by the Costa Rica rain that was unusually late this year. Thank you again for your feedback, we have taken notes about your concerns as we strive to make it a comfortable stay for all of our guests!

This was our first time to Tamarindo and Monte Perla was the perfect place to stay! Waking up with a perfect view to the beach and a cup of coffee couldn't have been more perfect! This condo had it all! Two very comfortable bedrooms, we stayed two adults with my two boys, which loved the idea of a sofa bed so they also used the one in the living room. All bedrooms have air conditioning as well as the dining room, living room and kitchen! That's a huge plus for the hot temperatures in Tamarindo! The kitchen was FULLY equipped, I even found some gadgets I didn't own ( And I thought I had them all). There's a bathroom in each bedroom, they are very spacious. And you can cook watching the sunset, that was the best part at dinner time! I just loved it! The condo was exceptionally clean! Extra towels and linens are provided in the closet! There's nothing else I could have asked for!

It is well located, at a small hilltop, so you don't hear the disco music from the Tamarindo night life. The supermarket is just a 4 minute drive and the nearest beach is a 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk.

I'm definitely coming back to Monte Perla and renting this condo! It was well worth it!

I contacted the property managers by email and phone and they were super kind and helpful!

I highly recommend you stay here! Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
