  • Great location; great owners

    "We chose this VRBO for the location. It did not disappoint. We stayed for 5 nights with our 7 & 9 year old boys. It is approximately 2 minute walk down a moderately steep hill to the beach (but that is what gives you a view from the porch). The sand was soft black sand (not dirty, nor hot). The beach was very private and the tide very calm. My 9 year old snorkeled w/o a life vest (although he is a good swimmer). Were able to see quite a few fish...not the best snorkeling in the world, but that is not what CR is known for, nonetheless, the snorkeling was as good as I expected it to be in CR. The home was clean and comfortable. The A/C worked well. Monkeys came to the tree near our porch. We had no trouble with using the local phone or binoculars left in the safe. Having access to the washing machine was great. Closest swimming pool is across the street (smaller one, but good for kids)---there are others that you have access to. Larger, nicer pool at entrance to the condo complex (part of Club at Coco) and kids really liked this pool. We went to this pool (could walk here) every day and always had the pool to ourselves and could smell the wonderful foods at Father Roosters (which is just in front). Also saw birds and monkeys while at this pool. We enjoyed Father Roosters, which was walk-able. Food was good for both adults and kids. 20 minute drive to Diamante to go to an Adventure Park (we rode ATVs and Zip Lined). Less than 10 minute drive to Coco where you can go to grocery store (prices not far off from USA) and more restaurants. The owners were very responsive to any questions I had before I arrived and after I got there. I felt very safe here at day and night. I would recommend having a car, but it is not necessary, just depends on what your agenda is. You can easily get a cab to go to Coco (go to restaurant, grocery). But if you want to do day trips, a car would be easiest, we drove a good part of the country before coming here and did not feel at all intimidated by the driving in this country. For the price, this location was great and I would recommend it to others."

  • Great Condo and Area!

    "We stayed at this condo for 10 nights and enjoyed every minute. The condo itself has everything needed for an independent vacation where you can cook when you want and just relax by the pool. The neighbours were terrific and very helpful in activities and events happening. Frank was very accommodating and available when needed. The area is super for walking daily either to the beach or to Playa Coco. No rental car is needed which we loved. The local beaches along with eateries were all great. Food is terrific and the locals are very friendly. Wonderful vacation and definitely planning to return next year."

  • Beatiful private villa

    "We stayed at BPV in April 2016. I shared the apartment with my wife and 4 sons. There was plenty of room. I really believe that this is probably the perfect place to stay in Costa Rica. It's only a half hour to the airport. You can leave the US in the morning and be on the beach in the afternoon. Another restaurant and scuba diving is only 5 minutes away and Coco is only a few minutes beyond that. Coco is a fun place to walk around when tired of the beach. The villa faces a private beach without other tourists or a marina. Picante restaurant is as good as any in Costa Rica and you can almost roll out of bed into the restaurant. Al is a wonderful host who arranges all the details and can arrange many exciting excursions as well. We had a wonderful time and would go back in a heartbeat."

  • Beautiful property!

    "We loved the the condo, the pool, and the security was wonderful. The only draw back was the property manager Roberto was awful. He didn't seem welcoming. He was making comments that made us uncomfortable. And when we asked for another key so we could split up into groups he admitted that while we were asleep he tried to unlock the door with another set of keys. We were unhappy that he practically tried to come into our house without permission. Also, while we were trying to receive the extra key that he offered when we arrived he said in an email that he'd meet me the following day at noon and then never showed up. And after that he ignored my emails for 4 days. Although there were a few problems the vacation was wonderful, we loved Costa Rica, and would recommend the property to anyone. Thank you."
