About the property

1 Bedroom, gated, 5 minutes walk from the beach and 10 minutes walk to downtown

Very clean, condo with the biggest pool in Coco.

This gated community is beautifully landscaped, only 300 meters to beach, and a 5 to 10 minute walk to the center of town, restaurants, bars, clubs, cafes, shops, groceries, fruit stands, touring/adventure companies and hospital. A taxi is only $2 to town.

Also, beside the complex is a convenience store, a soda (local restaurant) and across the street is the best Italian pizzeria in Coco and a language school if you want to learn spanish.

It features a walk-in pool with swim-up bar (not mended, you bring your own drinks and ice), jacuzzi, bridge and waterfall, and has 24-hour security guards.

This is a 2nd floor condo, no one above you to make noise walking around or sliding chairs in the middle of the night. The unit consists of 1 bedroom with a queen bed and a double sofa bed. We just replaced all the furniture with custom made furniture in April 2017 (not showing on pictures, We need to take new ones when we go in May) All linens and towels are provided.

About Sebastien Ferland

We are a youngish couple from Canada, currently residing in Stayner Ontario. I grew up near Quebec city and my wife near Vancouver. Work brought us to Calgary, where we met more than 7 years ago. We love to travel, the ocean the sun and to disconnect from what we refer to as the real world.

Sebastien Ferland purchased this condo in 2015

Why Sebastien Ferland chose Coco

On our first trip to Costa Rica, we fell in love with the place, the weather and people. We felt totally relaxed and noticed we were smiling all the time. It felt good to be away from the rat race and just enjoy life for once. We knew after experiencing this that we wanted to keep coming here and have a place to call our own so we purchased this property for yearly vacations planning to retire there in the future.

What makes this condo unique

We chose that property for many reasons. The beautiful pool and garden with a swim up bar, the largest in Playas del Coco. Then the location, it is walking distance to everything. The local people, who are really friendly and helpful. Safety, everywhere we go, even walking back home at night we feel safe. The monkeys, in the backyard trees and in the trees all around town. Access to beaches, Coco beach is just a few minutes away, Playa Ocotal is 3 kms, Playa Hermosa is 10 kms and there are many more. The weather, it is one of the driest areas in Costa Rica so there is lots of sun(200 day guaranteed), not much of a rainy season and the temperature doesn't fluctuate much all year.

I definitely want to stay here again!! The owners are so helpful and quick to respond

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here for almost a week. It was my first time using homeaway and first time traveling to Costa Rica. The house was super clean, had lots of towels and kitchen items (even a rice maker!), and the A/C and internet worked perfectly. The pool is GORGEOUS and feels luxury. The condo complex was safe and comfortable. We liked how the condo was tucked away enough yet easy to get to the ocean, town, and supermarket. The owners were very quick to respond to emails which was really helpful. They made a great recommendation on car rentals as well. I would suggest that you ask lots of questions before arriving if you won't have phone service just to make sure you know everything (key code for door, wifi password, address of condo complex, etc). This is the best option! I highly recommend going to Zi lounge as well. VERY nice and fun employees most speak English. A lot of places if not everywhere in Costa Rica takes American dollars and usually credit cards as well. Rent a car! It's an adventure! We used Economy. Go to Playa Flamingo the beaches are amazing! Try Soda Los Pelon (restaurant on the main rode). Really amazing tradition Costa Rican food. Go to Diamante for the day. We took a shuttle (which is organized by Diamante and is only $20/person). Do the adventure pass. Zip lining is amazing and the staff is SO sweet!

We loved it. It was like a home away from home. Everything was clean and it had everything we needed.

Very happy

  • 5 of 5

Sebastien's condo is clean and well-appointed. Everything works as it should. The grounds of Cocomarindo are so beautiful and lush and maintained daily. The staff is friendly and helpful, and a security guard is present around the clock. I had no trouble doing mid-week laundry, as there are two up to date washing machines and dryers in the complex. Playa del Coco is funky and fun, and there are countless options for meals. We frequented the two Sodas near the beach and bought lunch daily at the local bakery. Playa Panama, a twenty minute drive north, is quiet and lovely; fine sand beaches, clean, calm, and clear water. More action in Tamarindo isn't far away. For anyone considering Guanacaste specifically or a peaceful getaway in Costa Rica in general, I recommend highly Cocomarindo.

A Hot Time in Playa del Coco

  • 5 of 5

Sebastien was a great communicator before, during, and after our stay in his condo, so we didn't have to worry about anything (including our taxi rides from and to the airport in Liberia, organized by our host). It turned out to be extremely hot (and not dry, as we'd read it would be before going), so the beautiful condo pool (surrounded by well-watered foliage) and the condo AC and ceiling fans were very much appreciated! The other condo owners/renters--mostly Canadians and Americans, but also some Latinos--were very friendly, too. We checked out all three of the big grocery stores downtown for our supplies, and also got a few items at the nearby smaller store. We were two 'young seniors' with our young adult son, and we had room to operate (and enough bedding, towels, and so on); the condo would be roomy/perfect for two. The location in Playa del Coco is good--not too far from the beach, a nice walk downtown, and right across the street from a wonderful authentic Italian restaurant. (Many evenings, we picked up a freshly-fallen juicy mango on our way back through the COCOMARINDO community gate.) All of the food (and fresh fruit drinks) we had was really good; we ate mostly in Playa del Coco, but also once each in Playa Ocotal and Playa Hermosa! We enjoyed a local boat trip with a stop to swim at a lovely beach, a well-planned all-day trip to Nicaragua, and a canopy zip-lining afternoon not too far from town, all of which were reasonably priced and easy to organize at a travel company downtown.

Mixed reactions

  • 3 of 5


The apartment was small but very well equipped, maintained, and furnished. The driver (from the airport) left immediately, so I was left to find my way around. There was not much social life in the complex, nor any indoor meeting area. The stores are over a mile away, so your own transport is certainly advisable. The large, exotic, serpentine swimming pool is really great. The bay is handsome but the closest beach is drab. My stay was OK, because I like to swim, speak Spanish, get on well with the local people, and don't mind being on my own.

Owner's Response: Good Day, thanks for your review. I will make sure that the driver show the proper door for the next guest and I apologize for that. As It was during off season, I can see that the place was a bit more quiet and without much social live. We normally go during high season and its much different. As for distance from town, we personally like being 5-10 minutes away as it is much more quiet. We hope you still had a good time and will correct that issue with the driver.

Clean and comfortable, close to beach & town

  • 3 of 5

The condo was clean, comfortable and quiet. The pool was very nice and well maintained. Sebastien was very quick to answer any questions we had and was very accommodating. We walked to beach, stores and town. Taxis were always available and inexpensive. We had a rainy week in October but will visit again in the dry season.

Owner's Response: Good Day Lori, Im glad that you liked the Condo and the location. As for weather, during rainy season it is always possible to have rain but at least it made you want to come again during dry season. It was nice having you as a guest and hopefully we get to see you again!
