About the property

Gated 2 Bedroom Condo, minutes From Secluded Beaches

Accommodations: Bungalow (approximately 900 sq. ft of living space), 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms (Minimum 3 day stay, weekly or monthly basis).

This family oriented unit features 2 bedrooms – one with queen bed & one with 3 single beds (includes air conditioning in both bedrooms for night time use), 2 ensuite bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, outdoor patio/covered pergola with table/chairs. The complex includes Wi-Fi & a shared pool area. The local grocery stores are very well stocked so you can enjoy the quiet & solitude of home cooking or you can choose from one of the many restaurants located within 10-15 minutes.

Our location is 10-15 minutes from several very secluded beaches, and 20 minutes from many more popular beaches. We are 1 km inland from the Pacific Ocean & the humidity level is less than the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. The sandy beaches are beautiful, quiet & the water is warm year round.

Flights into the area are best booked through Liberia which is a brand new airport about a 1 1/2 - 2 hour drive away, mostly on paved roads through the true rural setting of small towns, cites and agriculture of Costa Rica.

Rentals are available nearby for …. quads, horses, fishing boats, surfboards, boogie boards, scuba equipment… the list goes on. Go on ocean/jungle/river boat tours, zip line through the canopy; enjoy horseback riding on the beach, turtle or bird watching, wind-surfing, sea kayaking, deep sea fishing; take a surf lesson, visit a wild life reserve and beautiful waterfalls. We are also situated 10 minutes from the world renowned Nosara Yoga Institute. Enjoy some of the most captivating coastline scenery on the planet!!

If you want to experience a rural Costa Rican setting, away from the hubbub of a typical holiday, this is the location for you. We are situated in a small rural community of approximately 200 friendly local residents. We are located mid way (15 minutes) between two beautiful tourist towns, Samara and Guiones. There are 19 condos inside a gated and secure community. There is very little crime, but we do have night and day security.

In order to experience all there is to offer, a vehicle or ATV is a must.

For larger families/groups/retreats, other condos in this complex are available for rental and arrangements can be made to accommodate more people.

Maid service is available upon request on a weekly basis.

Thoroughly enjoyed this relaxing vacation and will definately rent this Condo again.

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I really enjoyed our quiet, relaxing stay at this condo. It was clean and well equipped. The other owners in this complex and the locals were so friendly and helpful.

A vehicle is a must in order to visit all the beautiful, local secluded beaches. We chose to eat out most evenings and were impressed with the variety and quality of the many restaurants in the area. We also enjoyed the pool area at the condo. The owner was very easy to deal with and provided lots of info via email. We will rent here again.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The property exceeded our expectations, was clean and the complex well maintained. We had a minor water leak issue which was easily dealt with. The neighbors were all very friendly and helpful. Good value for the price.

Owner's Response: The water leak from the hot water heater was unfortunate especially after a long day of touring and sightseeing. Thanks for your assistance in rectifying the situation. We too think a lot of our neighbours down there and we heard from them how much they enjoyed your visit too. Hope to hear from and see you again.

Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay. It had most of the amenities we were expecting. We were disappointed that the wifi seldom worked and that the air conditioning conked out after the second night. The location was great. The swimming pool and area was great for hanging out. The patio was not set up for lounging with just one rocking chair. The kitchen was well equipped and the washer and dryer came in handy. We would definitely return

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our condo. We are trying to rectify the Wi-Fi situation as it seems to be a common frustration. Hopefully in the next week or so we will have a repeater installed in our corner of the complex so the reception is better. We were sorry to hear about the problem with the AC. Had we known about it earlier, we would have made contact with the repair man and had it taken care of right away. There is a teak table and 4 chairs that we move under the pergola and that is where we spend most of our time outside. Thanks for your feedback about this as we are looking to get more furniture for deck as well. We appreciate your business and your feedback. Hope you return again.

Secure and centralized location

  • 4 of 5

Booking with the owner was easy. For the price, you get a great value with this condo. It is in a gated community that has access to multiple beaches. Most of the residents in the complex are Canadian and ALL were friendly.

YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED a rental vehicle and if you want to access all of the local beaches, you NEED a 4 x 4. We had a sedan and could not access every beach. You are 25 minutes to Samara beach and 15 minutes to Nosara/Guiones. Our favorite close beach was Garza as they have a restaurant (Restaurante Bahia Garza) that is on the beach and you can eat/drink and sit on chairs/tables they provide.

The condo itself is clean and well appointed. Having a washer/dryer was great. The pool in the complex is smaller, but only once was it too busy. There are trees around the pool to avoid the hot sun when you do not want to go to the beach. As others have said, internet is spotty and very slow.

It was a good stay for our family of five and would recommend to others.

Quiet casita

  • 4 of 5

This house was the perfect size for our family of five (parents, and three kids aged 11, 8 and 5). It is out of the way, so quiet and peaceful, and between Samara, Garza, and Guiones. The house was very clean and welcoming when we arrived, complete with flowers with our towels. The caretakers, Marcelo and Luz, were ever available.

As another reviewer mentioned, there is no wifi in the home. One must stand outside the neighbor's house across the street to connect. At first, this seemed like terrible news! But it actually allowed us to truly disconnect, and that was really nice.

In spite of the very clean house, when we arrived, the kitchen had ants. This is a common thing in humid climates, but for someone looking forward to cooking, this worried us. The caretakers sprayed Raid, which initially helped, but the ants never went away and grew in numbers as our stay went on. We kept the kitchen garbage in the freezer and all food in the fridge. The pans are not in very good shape, so that combined with the ants, we did not cook as we had hoped.

I don't know that our family has ever slept so well as in this house - super quiet and peaceful. We had cereal or leftovers for breakfast, stay out all day exploring beaches and the landscape, showered in the late afternoon, and out to dinner each night. We fell in to a great rhythm, and our family in the end really enjoyed our stay here. The owners were also very available to us via email both prior and during our stay, and were super helpful. I would absolutely recommend this house for families.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your time at our condo. We are surprised to hear about the condition of the pots and pans as they are actually a good quality Lagostina brand, but we will have the staff evaluate to see if they need replacing the next time we visit. We will also ensure that our caretaker sprays the perimeter of our condo on a more regular basis for the ants which are very common in our area of the tropics. We have not personally experienced the ants to the extent you have noted, but perhaps they are worse in the rainier season. I am glad we were able to communicate during your visit and work our way through your concerns.

Quiet in the country

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this home. It is very spacious, bright and clean. The gated community is safe for families. For anyone staying here, you will need a a vehicle, preferable a 4x4. One thing of note, the home does not offer WIFI. We had to use the Neighbors and stand in the lot across the street. It was a disappointment. However the rest was as advertised and we had a great stay.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the complications with the WiFi as our complex has shared WiFi so the booster situated next door must not have been working properly. Hopefully you will return for another stay.
