Overview

About the property

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

If you are planning on staying during Spring Break or the semana santa but for longer than a week, please contact me so we can discuss a better price. (I just want to make sure not to rent to responsible quiet people)

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.

The condo is located just off the main road to Playas del Coco, close enough to enjoy all the action, yet still able to enjoy a sense of privacy. 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. There are 2 air conditioning units, one in the main room and one in the bedroom. The main room is open, combining kitchen, dining and living room areas. The kitchen is fully equipped and features custom cabinets, stove, oven, fridge and microwave. There is a 32 inch LCD TV in the living room and a 20 inch LCD TV in the bedroom. Cable with international multilingual stations and wireless internet are included. Pool lounge chairs and chairs to sit at the table in the tiki hut are included as well. There is also a safe in the condo to store your valuables.

It is not necessary to rent a vehicle as everything is nearby. Bicycles, dirt bikes, scooters cars, SUV's and golf carts are available for rent in downtown.

We offer transportation to and from Liberia airport for $50 US each way for 2 or 3 people and if you have a lot of luggage or want to share the ride we can send a van for up to 6 people.

Located 25 minutes from the Daniel Oduber Quiros airport in Liberia, and close to the many attractions of Guanacaste.

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 Guanacaste

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.

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.

Feedback

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!

Great condo and pool in convenient location near Playa Coco

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cocomarindo (Property 702259). It was neat, clean, had a very comfortable bed and all amenities we needed (including two TVs to allow for sporting events on two different stations). The area was quiet and very secure. The pool was unbelievable!! Will gladly consider this option again in the future.

nice big pool in quiet secure complex 5 minute beach walk from Coco

  • 5 of 5

Sebastien is a great host and Coco Marindo is an awesome property. The bed is comfy with blackout curtains for lazy mornings. The bedroom looks out onto jungle. The wifi, cable tv and air con are all in good working order. The complex has 24 hr security and an in-room safe. A nice walk down the beach takes you to the main part of Coco. All the restaurants and bars are there and it is nice to visit but I liked being away from it when it was time to sleep. Pool is big and has outdoor showers. We stayed here twice on our trip for a total of a week. We caught barracuda and black tip tuna and cooked plenty of awesome meals in the well equipped kitchen. Definately recommend this awesome property and host.

Une semaine exceptionelle en famille au Cocomarindo

  • 5 of 5

Tout le processus de location a été facile du début a la fin.

Le condo est parfait et contient tout ce dont nous avons besoin. Le site est très bien entretenu et sécuritaire.

Tout est a distance de marche, Resto, bar, plage etc...pas besoin de voiture .

Le locateur a arranger le transfert de l'aéroport au condo pour nous.

Les excursions proposées dans le secteur sont toutes super.

Le locateur est tres responsable et disponible. Il y a eu un problème avec le wifi et meme si il n est pas dans le pays il a tout fait a distance pour nous aider.

Vous pouvez y aller sans craintes. Tout est parfait et le locateur est d'une honnêteté et d'une disponibilité extraordinaire.

Nous y retournerons surement.
