Larry and Diane are ready to welcome you to enjoy one of their three condos at Cocomarindo. They live in the Midwestern United States but choose Cocomarindo as their home away from home during the winter months.
Larry Davidson and Diane Dybevik purchased this condo in 2007
We chose Costa Rica as our vacation home because of the fabulous weather. We enjoy the guaranteed sunshine from December through April. Some tenants also come for the "green season" from July through October.
Cocomarindo has many tenants that return year after year. The phrase "See you next year!" is common and a sign that it is a wonderful place to enjoy the Costa Rican sunshine and laid back culture.
The condo is located a few blocks from the beach and is in a gated complex of 90 small units. The complex is a mix of expats and ticos, many of the units are short term rentals. Overall, the condo was quite pleasant, although it is starting to show it's age. It's a small 1 bedroom with a small kitchen and sitting area. We spent most of our time in the very large pool, which is also starting to show it's age with missing tiles and cracked pavement. Don't expect 4 stars this place is far from it. It is a quiet little condo complex in a typical tico neighbourhood which was very refreshing. The other condo owners and people staying there where very nice and we enjoyed our time there.
Condo was just a described, very neat and clean. Harvey picked us up at the airport, which was nice to have that worked out before hand. He drove us around town and showed us where some things were. He would not stop at the grocery store for us, which would have been nice since we were arriving with nothing. There is a convenience store next door if you need little times but it's expensive. While driving around town, Harvey told us about the water shortage and we might experience times where the water is turned off for a little while. The other residences at the community, said they had not experienced any of that. When in doubt, ask your neighbor. It would have been nice to have a map of the area left in the room(I did leave our extra one). Security guards at the front gate are not very friendly or helpful. We took taxi in and from town, which are $2. I left several of the taxi drivers cards that we used frequently. It's an easy walk into town for anything that you need. Several of the other residence, rented golf carts to drive back and forth. The beach is just down the road and is a nicer walk when going into town.
Los Pelones is a great place to eat breakfast. $7 for a big plate you can split with someone. The gelato place is also really good but a little pricy. Auto Mercado is the best grocery store. The Lookout is a great place to eat and get craft beer made right there and Aqua Sport is a great place to watch the sun set into the ocean. The sun sets into the mountains at Lookout. Zi Lounge has the best Mojitos for 4 dollars and the best drink specials all day long. They also do some good food specials off and on. We had a few $1 tacos one day as a late lunch. The locals are pulling large red snapper by the baskets full every day along with lots of there seafood. Ask around and you can get the freshest seafood if you want to cook yourself.
We used Mardigi Tours for our excursions. They were great and will pick you up at the front gate. We did three different excursions with them. Jose is one of the best guides we had. Their office is at the next beach north. You can book their tours in town with another company but they will add on 10 bucks for their fee. Call them direct or go on line.
Overall, the community is very friendly and clean. The condo is the perfect size for a couple on vacation. The only thing I would suggest is beach chairs for the pool and beach. Bagged chairs are not ideal for the pool or the beach.
My wife and I stayed for 10 days at Diane and Larry's Cocomarindo Condo, the Condo was cosy, comfortable, tropical feeling, and had everything we needed for a great stay in Coco Costa Rica and I would definitely recommend the property. We enjoyed the choice of being able to cook meals in our room and enjoy the surroundings of the condo grounds and the pool. The property was very well maintained and the grounds were beautiful, Condo staffed worked extremely hard to keep the grounds and pool in top shape. We also enjoyed daily walks on the beach and walking into town to buy groceries and supplies. The local markets, restaurants and shops lets us get a really nice feel of what Costa Rica is about. The Italian Restaurant across the street La Caveja is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ate at. We enjoyed the restaurants down town for cocktails and lunches Zi lounge was one of our favourites. Diane was very helpful informing us on local attractions and trips to make our Costa Rican experience memorable, her property manger Harvey picked us up at the airport and gave us very informative tour on the way to our Condo about 20 minutes.
We would definitely like to return to Cocomarindo.
I loved Playa del Coco and our small apt. Same rates as hotels in the area but with a kitchen and amazing pool--YES PLEASE! My husband and i loved it. The owner was very easy to get a hold of and helped with our transfers. This owner is one of the best ones I've dealt with! We also loved the beach nearby. Clean, lots of space, and short walk. There wasn't one downfall for this complex. I do have to say its a 10-15min walk into town, which was no problem for us- unless its midday in dry season and I'm a great walker/fit/ etc but the heat gets to you and makes the walk harder. in the morning and evening when it was cooler the walk was much more bearable. However in the hot sun we walked the beach into town and cooled our toes as we walked and found it ok. Everything in the apt is there- including garbage bags! The blender was used many times...
Thanks so much for a great stay, loved the apt!
I have to say this was our best vacation we have taken. The pool was awesome, the beach was close and the condo had everything we needed even a blow dryer and I didn t have to pack beach towels. The wifi was great and so was the air conditioning. Loved the bakery that was close and so was the fruit stand. Don't forget to try the Italian restaurant across the street great Pizza. I hope we can come back soon!!!!!
We celebrated our retirement for a month at Coco Marindo and had a wonderful time. Wifi great, air conditioning great. Close to town and beach and the pool was awesome. Met wonderful people and made many new friends. The condo is clean, market close by and so is a bakery. Security guard on premises at all times. Had a great time.
