About Dean Bronizewski

About the Owners,

We are a Calgary, Alberta, Canada family. We have visited Costa Rica 3 times in the past couple of years and felt it was beautiful place to set up a second home. I work for a utility company and my wife is a business entrepreneur with 3 Montessori preschools. We would like to visit Costa Rica a couple of times a year and provide a place for other to see this beautiful country, at least once.


Dean Bronizewski purchased this condo in 2015

What makes this condo unique

This unit is located in a small condo complex with only 16 units around a beautiful large pool. The other owners are friendly and always willing to help if needed. The grounds are kept in good condition and there is a washer and dryer available for long term renters. The view from our second story unit is in a private area of the complex so you are mainly all to yourself. The units were built in 2009.

Located one block from the beach and only a 2 minute walk to a grocery store, restaurants, coffee shops, vet clinic, tours, yoga and a spa. The community of Las Palmas is a quiet area of Playa de Coco off the beaten path but still only a 10 minute walk to the main street where there are many shops, restaurants, bars and people. An ideal location for all age groups.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Review #11369837 “A beautiful place in a wonderful area - I recommend it.”

We were referred to this place by a friend and it was one of our first time renting a vacation home instead of a hotel. The property managers (Dean & Sandy) were accommodating and were there to make sure our stay was enjoyable and everything was taken care of. We did have a slight problem with one of the toilet but they had the repair guy there within hours to fix it.

The condo is much more spacious than it appears in the pictures. There are 2 queen size bedrooms with lots of space and each has it own full washrooms. The washrooms are a bit tight but lots of room for their purpose. The patio is on the second floor and not facing a another suite so there is privacy and it quite spacious for those late night relaxes or reading a book. There are all the supplies that you need to cook meals and a few spices as well. There is no dishwasher but it is easy to wash plates or we bought paper plates. The pool is large and it is cleaned every day - seen the guys out there early in the morning. The furniture has recently been updated, the beds are really comfortable (we slept in both as the morning sun was bright in the master bedroom and we moved) and the condo is in excellent condition. Loved the new fluffy towels in the bathrooms.

The location is ideal - a 2-3 minute walk and you are at coffee/breakfast shops, grocery store, 2 restaurants, a massage place ($50 for an hour, mani/pedi $10), consignment store and tour centre. Downtown Coco is about a 12 minute walk where there are many shops, grocery stores restaurants and bars - even a casino if that interests you. It is not too large so as to be busy - just remember that pedestrians are 2nd here. The beach is a block/block and a half (depending on how you go) and we walked this every night and never once was worried about our safety. The beach has a lighted board walk for most of the way but after that the beach is pretty well empty. The community (Las palmas) has lots of street lights and there are security guards throughout the area - always felt safe.

If you want any suggestions or ideas on excursion - the owners or the property managers are more than ready to help you and provide tips for your stay. There is a book on Spanish in the condo but it is seldom needed as most people speak some or good english.

Remember that you don't have to tip as it is built into all the prices (food, taxi, drinks, etc.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Costa Rica for the Ironman 70.3. This property has everything we needed - close to race venue, grocery store and restaurants within walking distance, air conditioning, clean and fully stocked kitchen, spacious bedrooms and living room. Dean was extremely helpful with airport transports and general information. He responds to emails immediately and is super friendly. We had an amazing time!

All in all was a great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent 10 days here ,and enjoyed ourselves . The property is well looked after we did have a small problem with the air conditioning not cooling very well towards the end of our stay , but I believe it needed to be recharged with coolant which was going to addressed. Would recommend as a place to stay while in Coco beach!! 👍👍. Pura Vida

Nice property, well kept

  • 4 of 5

Stayed a month, and had a great time. The property is nicely located and well kept. The condo itself is in good shape, well situated in the complex and well decorated. It has most of the things you would expect and need in the kitchen. A nice addition would be a table and some chairs on the balcony so as to allow some meals to be taken outside as most of the neighbours do. But overall I recommended it.

Very enjoyable and laid back month in Coco

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place that was close to the beach and town where I would not need a car and this condo checked all the boxes. It took 15 minutes to walk to town from the front door and 5 minutes to walk to beach. Used the pool at Las Palmas every day very convenient. Managers Dean and Sandy kept in touch several times to make sure everything was running smoothly and if we had any questions. Thanks again for a very enjoyable month!
