About Gerald Faldyn

Jacob visited Costa Rica in 2013 and fell in love with the beautiful country, beaches and tropical forest and the friendly people and decided to purchase the apartment complex with hopes of eventually living in Costa Rica.

Gerald Faldyn purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Gerald Faldyn chose Quepos

Palmas Suenos is small and quaint and offered a good starting point to learn the rental business and customer support that goes with it.

What makes this apartment unique

Palmas Suenos is located just outside of Quepos and Manuel Antonio. It offers a very quiet tropical forest setting at a very reasonable price. Elias Chinchilla, a Costa Rica born Tico, is the Apartment Manager and lives with his wife and daughter in one of the apartment units and provides a personal greeting to each guest. His presence also offers a level of security since he is there every night. Wireless internet, cable TV and hot shower water are all included at no additional cost.

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was mediocre overall. It is quite run down; a little maintenance would go a long way.

One of the reasons we chose the apartment was that it advertised a balcony/patio. There is no balcony in this (2nd floor) unit, so there is nowhere to sit outside the huge patio doors. Some of the units have balconies; some do not.

The apartment complex is far out of town - you will be reliant on taxis or the bus if you don't have a car. This is inconvenient if you are here for a short stay and are not cooking your own food.

A few days before our arrival, I emailed the owner with a question. He never did respond.

For those reasons, we would not stay here again. There is not enough of a draw for us to return.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Elías and Vicky were fabulous hosts. I couldn't have have asked for a better experience or stay. The apartment is quite comfortable. I would recommend having a car if you're going to stay there though as you'll be relying on taxis to get to Quepos and MA if you don't.
