Beautiful home, great view, walkable to Playa del Coco

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at Casa Provence and really enjoyed our time and stay at this beautiful home. We found the home to be very comfortable and spacious with an incredibly inviting pool. The pictures do provide an accurate preview of the house overall, but we thought it was even better in person. We had enough of everything – kitchen was well stocked (but honestly preferred to eat at the great restaurants in Coco), linens, and laundry facilities. The house was about a 10 minute walk to downtown and just a little farther to the beach. There are several grocery stores just a few minutes away – very convenient.

Corby was very gracious in meeting us with our late arrival (delayed 3 hours in customs) and insisted that we take the time to run to the grocery store before heading to the house so we could just relax when we got into our home away from home.

The separate bedrooms worked for our young adult children and would be great for separate couples. The internet is adequate to stay connected and the tv had enough channels from Miami that we didn’t feel completely disconnected from the US.

We would highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone wanting to enjoy all that Playa del Coco has to offer but wants some private space, too.

5 month stay - Dissapointing

  • 1 of 5

We stayed at Casa Provence for 5 months on a lease. When we checked out after our 5 month stay, the owner and the property manager overcharged us for some damaged and broken items. Here are some examples. VRBO policy prevents me from listing the amount that they charged us but I will tell you that they charged us up to 5x the actual cost of items.

1 sheet with wine stain -

Cotton blanket with stain -

A cheap plastic planter/container -

Refinishing the top of the kitchen table (we barely used it) -

3 days of cleaning service, the house was professionally cleaned every month. It never took more than one day to clean the whole house thoroughly.

These are just some examples of how they tried to justify keeping our very large security deposit. We asked for pictures of the damage and copies of the receipts for the replaced items and they refused.

Their advertisement stated that the house is in a gated community, and was very safe with 24 hour security. The housing community was developed to be gated but there is no gate and the guard shack is never manned. The windows and doors do not lock properly and they rely on putting sticks in the tracks of windows and sliding doors to secure them.

We reported the oven as inoperative on our 2nd day at the property, 5 months later and it was still not fixed.

Save your money and pick one of the many beautiful homes in the Coco area listed on VRBO.

I cannot recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We're disappointed that you chose to air your disagreement with what you were charged for cleaning and damage to our house as a review on our VRBO listing. Especially given the time that our property manager (Corby) spent corresponding and meeting with you about this. As you know, having spent considerable time in Costa Rica, household items are substantially more expensive to purchase in Costa Rica as compared to the U.S., especially since this area is a resort area. We were very fair with what we charged for damaged and broken items in our house, even to the point of not charging for everything. Per your request. Corby saved and turned over to you the damaged items that you were charged for. This was all documented via photos which copies were sent to you. Corby also took pictures of the condition of the house after you checked out and reviewed the pictures with you when you questioned the amount of cleaning required to bring the house back to the condition it was in when you checked in. You also failed to mention that the monthly maid/cleaning service was paid for by me as a above-and-beyond service to you. You stated that we advertise our house as being in a gated community with 24-hour security. I've reviewed our VRBO site multiple times and cannot find where this is stated. All of our windows and doors do lock properly and, as you are aware, we use the "stop sticks" as an added precaution, which is common for sliders and windows such as the ones installed in our house. We take the security of our guests and their belongings very seriously. Corby and she has no record of any report of an issue with the oven. She also has no record of any repair being made to the oven. I know for a fact that the oven works, since we used it when we stayed at our house after you checked out. Corby has always been very responsive to everyone that has rented our house. Finally, it was not mentioned that a large portion of the "very large deposit" was used to pay the utility bills for the last month of the rental. Your correspondence with Corby, indicated you really enjoyed renting our house up until the point of disagreeing with what was not refunded from your damage deposit. As all other guests at our house know, it is very rare that we have ever charged anything for damage. We understand that sometimes little things just happen. In this case, it was more than just some little things happening.

Very nice house. Price/performence was great. Very close to town.

  • 4 of 5

Property management was excellent. Arrival/departure key hand off was smooth. I rented this instead of condo because it had 3 bedrooms and 3 + 1/2 baths. No sharing removes internal conflict! Getting car in/out of driveway was interesting, but not terrible. But hey, this is Costa Rica, you have to have a little excitement!

Beuatiful Home with a Great view !

  • 5 of 5

Home was fully furnished with clean and organized amenities. Home had 3 bedrooms the basement room bed was a double bed which was a little small for the couple that drew that straw , could use some shelving or other storage means. But overall for 6 people we found it to work great and convenient for going places. Very clean home affordable and would recommend it to friends .
