Costa Rica Beach Condo with Panaoramic Ocean Views of Playa Conchal

Our two bedroom, 2 bathroom ocean view condo has some of the best views in Costa Rica. Our guests enjoy a very private, quiet setting overlooking the best beach area of the gold Coast of Costa Rica. Just a short 10 minute walk brings you to Playa Conchal or walk 20 minutes to Playa Minas where Sea Turtles often nest on the sand. A 5 minute drive takes you to Pirates Beach ... a breathtaking sunset beach with an actual pirates cave on a small island. A 20 minute drive will take you to more beaches like Tamarindo, Playa Grande, Brasilito or Flamingo beach. It's not unusual to find less than 10 people at these natural beaches, giving you miles and miles of beach to walk or snorkel along the surf. There are no crowds to fend off ... or chairs to reserve ... or parking lots to navigate ... just sand to lay on, trees to sit under and the ocean to play in.

Our modern condo sleeps 6 and has all of the updated furnishings to make your visit comfortable, including a stainless/granite kitchen, custom tile bathrooms, washer/dryer, weekly maid service, WIFI, SAT TV, huge shaded balcony overlooking the ocean, private parking lot and a large DVD collection. Our small community has security guards, a private pool which you will normally have to yourself, a nice ocean view restaurant and bar .. which are also peaceful and relaxing ... no reservations needed. This property is not for those looking for loud crowded bars or night clubs squealing music late into the night.

Local activities include Sport Fishing, Surfing, Zip Lining, Canopy Tours, Volcano Viewing, Mud Baths, Birding, ATV Rental, Shelling, Golfing, Scuba/Snorkeling, River Rafting, River Tubing, Horseback Riding, Turtle Watching, Massage and more. Maybe even some time to relax.

Our condo has an intimate feel to it in a very quiet natural setting. No crowds around the development as there are only 18 units total. Come to relax and unwind in the best beach area in Costa Rica ... and feel like you have it all to yourself!

We are a 1-hour drive from the Liberia airport (LIR). Our property manager will meet and greet ... get you settled in ... assist with any tourist activities you like ... and make sure you're comfortable during your visit.

Kid friendly ... Adult friendly ... No Smoking Property.

About Todd Robinett

We needed a special place to go. A place we could forget about our jobs and stresses from around the World. A place that we could truly relax and fall off the grid for awhile. A place we could get to easily, but really be gone!!

When we found Playa Conchal, we found that place. We're from Minneapolis and co-own this condo between 2 families. We take good care of the property and enjoy sharing it with people who have the same interests. We hope you can come and experience our little piece of heaven on Playa Conchal.

Todd Robinett purchased this condo in 2006

Why Todd Robinett chose Guanacaste

Having travelled around the World more than once ... I knew when I took my first Costa Rica Vacation that this was a special place to spend more time. We found this awesome ocean view overlooking Playa Conchal and knew this was the pefect spot for a condo. After a year and a half of building, finally our condo was finished in 2006. Solid as a stone castle!! Luckily, development has been slow to follow. No Golden Arches or Starbucks here!! Just real fresh seafood, awesome rice & beans and great coffee! The ocean is warm and mostly tranquil on gorgeous Playa Conchal. No crowds, No stress, No wonder ... we love it!! Come spend your vacation at our Costa Rican Condo.

What makes this condo unique

The best part about our condo ... is 'falling off the grid' for a week or two. It's peaceful, natural, quiet and relaxing. Wildlife is abundant and the ocean and mountain views calm the soul. If you must check emails and CNN ... it's of course possible ... however ... not recommended!!

The weather is perfect most of the year. The Ocean is bathwater warm and clear. No crowds to deal with and some of the friendliest people on the planet. You really must try staying in Costa Rica at our condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Todd,



We are back home and we can appreciate with more objectivity our stay with you.... and the first word which comes is a great Thank you ! After you, we have been down south and it was the horror, crowd on the beaches, cars, noises, the inferno !



We had such a nice stay with you, the super well equiped flat, the quite and very well situated condo, the proximity of all the wonderfull beaches, Piratas, Minas where all the Family spent unforgetable moments alone or when we had a neighbour on the beach, the Costaricans who invited us for a beer or water melons... amazing and in the evening after a short swim in the pool, my pleasure was to sit in the terrace and look at the sea, the trees while listening to the birds and the monkeys !

..... and Todd, we did appreciate very much your reactivity and efficiency to answer our questions !



Todd and Pam, Thank you for making these holidays Magic for the Family.



Yours Sincerely.

Eric

The perfect sunny getaway

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to Costa Rica before, we weren't sure what to expect when we decided to fly down for our February trip. After we spoke with our hosts Todd and Pam, we were quickly convinced that we were making the right decision, both in our choice of locale as well as the condo itself!

We wanted a place that was close enough to the airport that it didn't feel like a long drive (this one is within 1hr 15mins of Liberia), but also removed from the hustle and bustle of busy tourist spots. This location met all our needs! The condo itself is an oasis of calm, located in a small community with its own bar and restaurant, so you are only about 2 minutes away from great food, drink, and conversation. There are small, charming villages nearby where you can stock up on supplies. There are *amazing* beaches within 1hr both north and south of the condo, but our favorite was only 10 minutes down the road (Playa Minas). We are still dreaming of that beach! No one there, plenty of trees and shade to enjoy, and the water in the cove is the perfect temperature (as was the breeze).

As for our condo experience, the process was seamless from the instant we booked. The owners were in touch to ensure we had all the information we needed, offered a lot of amazing suggestions on where to go and what to see on our trip, and put us in touch with their local manager Walner. He and his associates were so welcoming! They met us perfectly on time immediately as we got into town and took us to the condo and showed us around. The condo was even BETTER than we were expecting. You walk in to a nice cool tiled space with a good sized kitchen and full fridge (with washer and dryer--great for families with laundry!). To the left when you walk in is the "guest" room with the queen bed and the bunk beds--it seems like it would be cramped but it isn't at all. The living area has great seating, and a dining table that we loved (but have to admit, we didn't use as much as we would have liked as we enjoyed using the kitchen breakfast bar area and *especially* taking our food and drink out onto the patio where we could enjoy the views).

The master bedroom and the living spaces are really the best part of the condo--both have sliding glass doors that make up the entire wall so you can open them and it is like the condo is in the mountains itself with an amazing view of the ocean, Playa Conchal and Brasilito. Home away from home. We cannot wait to rent again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Simon .... especially for my new best phrase "Oasis of Calm" which perfectly describes our condo overlooking Playa Conchal. If you are looking for peace and quiet ... with stunning views overlooking the tranquil waters of Playa Conchal .. come visit our condo. You will hear the Howler Monkeys and see the flocks of colorful Parrots ... all from our shaded balcony. A short walk brings you to some of the most amazing beaches you will ever find. Taking short drives will take you to the quaint towns of Flaming Beach, Tamarindo, Playa Grande and Brasilito. All of these areas have shopping, restaurants, beaches and bars to explore. And of course you can't beat the food and views at the restaurant and bar located right on our property ... or a 10 minute stroll to Playa Conchal ... our 5 star beach!

We are already planning to return again!

  • 5 of 5

WE LOVED COSTA RICA and we believe a great part of our favorable experience was due to where we stayed. The condo is situated in an area that is close to everything you need, yet set apart enough for a true escape from our busy lives. We even had a spectacular beach to ourselves for several days. The balcony, oh! the balcony, what a roost! You are perched in the tree canopy in comfy chairs, or table for eating, with a view of the pacific ocean. It is an ornithological spectacular! We saw flocks of parrots, parakeets, motmots, to name just a few. What? it's monkeys you want to see, well they are right by the condo, just take a few steps up or down the road and look up. The quiet, serene, low tourisity setting helped us to recoup like an escape never has before. No crowds! What? it's tourism you desire, well that's not far away at all. We had our fill of that in one day. We can't wait to return! Afraid to venure out? The hosts will give you all the info you need, and the condo has many transplants from the good old USA. A top vacation for us.

Owner's Response: If you like a private area ... in a gorgeous natural setting ... you will like our condo. Monkeys, Birds and fabulous beaches are waiting for you here. No busy tourist crowds and just a handful of condos ... make it quiet and very tranquil. When you're ready to explore the shops or join a tourist event ... they are nearby too. Fishing, ATV's, Zip lines, Horseback riding, River Boat Tours ... are all easy day trips which can be set up by our property manager.

Do not want to leave !

  • 5 of 5

6.30pm last evening, we are now having a drink all the family on the terrace listening to the noises of the nature (birds, monkeys,...) after a wonderful day as the seven ones we spent here. It's ideally located, very comfortable, very clean and very quite, fully nice for five people.

At the swimming pool, in the evening, we met sometimes very friendly people from everywhere. I say sometimes because it's never crowded.

We could discover the region with all the different beaches without driving too much. That was really nice !

Thank you for the accommodation which is very complete and of very good quality. The owner Todd and his wife must be really nice persons !

Thanks to them very much,

Eric and family !

Owner's Response: Costa Rica is still a nature lovers paradise. If you want a very comfortable setting with one of the best views in Costa Rica .... and easy access to some of the nicest beaches anywhere ... you have picked the right spot. Our huge shady balcony overlooks Playa Conchal and the nearby Hills surrounding Playa Minas and other beaches. Our restaurant, bar and pool overlook Playa Flamingo with huge panoramic ocean views. Monkeys will often be your alarm clock and let you know when it's happy hour. Come explore it for yourself.

The Condo is wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

The condo itself is beautiful and wonderful views! Driving to it is a challenge. The roads are all dirt and the driveway is very steep. If you are walking on the beach it is easy. It is a 3 mile walk from the condo to Brazilto Beach. Beautiful.

Owner's Response: Like all roads in Costa Rica ... our road can be messy at times. 4-wheel drive rental cars are really a nice way to go. Our nearest beach is Playa Conchal ... which is about a 10 minute walk. From there you can walk to Brasillito Beach and beyond.

Best week ever!

  • 5 of 5

This location was PERFECT (a little off

the beaten path) to explore many different beaches. Our family of 5 loved everything in the condo especially the deck which was a animal sanctuary in the a.m. The condo was perfect for our family of 5. It was clean, maintained and Walner, the manager, was spot on for making sure everything went smoothly. My oldest teen daughter said it was the BEST week of her life. We liked that this location was quiet but yet so close to Playa Conchal (we think the best beach of them all....1/2 mile and you can literally drive up and park at the beach). One hr. from Liberia airport. Many adventures within minutes w/surfing, mtn biking, ATV/monkey sanctuary, horseback, etc. The onsite pool/restaurant w/ best oven brick pizza was a bonus. We've taken lots of trips with our kids and this is by far hands-down the best location and trip we have ever had. We highly recommend. Check out Hacienda Guachipelin adventure tours for a day excursion from the condo. A rental car was a lifesaver for us! If not renting, the best beach is just a hop, skip and a jump! We hope to come back. Pura Vida!

Owner's Response: If you like to see and hear wildlife ... our area is really nice. Yes, we are a bit remote ... but the peace and quiet is one of the reasons to visit. Flamingo Beach and Tamarindo are on either side of us ... so if you want to visit the shops, restaurants and towns ... they are an easy drive.

Uniquely situated cozy and practical appartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed for almost 3 months in the condo and enjoyed every moment of it. Situated in a most beautiful garden landscape with many exquisite beaches nearby, this condo offers what beach and nature lovers like.

The view from the terrace on to the Bay of Brasilito and Flamingo is breathtaking. In the condo we found everything we needed, and even beach chairs and tools were provided.

Good security, friendly staff, on site restaurant and a big swimming pool.

The communication with Todd and with his property manager Walner were excellent, friendly and clear.

My wife and I highly recommend this condo and thank Todd for letting us stay so long.
