My daughter and I spent 5 nights at this wonderful condo and there is not one negative thing I can say about it. Jon was very helpful and very pleasant to deal with. It is in a great location, so close to Samara and many other areas of interest. We felt safe and secure with Antonio and Santos always on hand in the parking and surrounding areas. The condo is very well equipped with plush towels and comfortable beds. We really enjoyed the Tico breakfast (gallo pinto)at Laconda and would highly recommend anything at LuvBurger on the beach. It was a great bonus to have Netflix. After a hot day of hiking or sightseeing, followed by a leisurely dinner out, we loved to come "home" and watch a movie. Definitely a 5 star! Thank you for sharing your home away from home with us.
We very much enjoyed staying at Sergio’s house in Playa Carrillo! A wonderful place to stay to celebrate a 60th birthday with a small group of family and friends! The house is spacious, kitchen is easy to use and large enough for several to maneuver within, two refrigerators very useful, the pool was absolutely stunning and our favorite area to relax, and the landscaping very nicely done, …everything was so beautiful! The house is very functional with comfortable beds, each with its own bathroom, individual adjustable air conditioner, and ceiling fan. The rest of the house did not have air conditioners but the ceiling fans inside and on the deck were adequate for coolness and comfort. All linens and towels for home and pool use are provided. House cleaning and care included and we were able to arrange a date and time so it wasn't everyday to to have someone come - so we had some privacy. Two beach chairs are also available for the beach (and very comfortable.) But palm trees also provide shade.
The open design of the dining and living room with TV and cable were fantastic. Large glass doors open on to the outside pool area - although the littler door was easier to slide open compared to the bigger one. There is a nicely shaded wood deck area where we did some morning exercises (yoga, and stretching). Sometimes the ants did their exercises with us -:) There is also a convenient outdoor shower and bathroom.
We walked every morning on an easy short walk slightly downhill to wonderful Playa Carrillo with its open, non crowded , nice beach, warm waters, and could rent chairs and umbrellas. The sunsets were nice to watch. We found the nearby stores convenient and reasonable. We did rent a car, very useful in traveling around the area - which we would recommend. But if not, there are buses, you just need to get the schedule. We often headed to Samara a very short drive - for dinner, drinks, and shopping at the bigger food market. Toured with local vendors on various adventures (loved the "dolphin trip" where we saw humpback whales and so many pilot whales.) Traveled to nearby Oro River, kayaked during high tide, and visited the ARA project where they help MaCaws. The House is a comfortable, nice place to stay - especially with close friends and family. Saw monkeys, iguanas, birds etc……we hope to return for another celebration one day soon. Thank you Sergio, and Xinia too!
