  • Gorgeous view, Great location, All the amenities to keep you cool, comfortable and relaxed.

    "What a gorgeous view to wake up to every morning or watch the sunset at night! This condo has everything you need to make you feel right at home. A porch with grill, living room, kitchen, two gorgeous bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a large tub and multiple showers mean you have all the space you need to enjoy your stay. It offers a great location close to many great beaches and within an hour or so of the lush green mountains. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and it was a blast. We went up to the cloud forest of Monteverde, snorkeled at Ocotal, spread out on the white sand beach of Conchal and rode horses and swam in waterfalls of Guachepelin. Staff are friendly and very helpful at the gate and on the property. Pool and tennis courts are first class. Supermarkets are close by and the kitchen is full appointed. We were not left wanting for anything. Our neighbors were super friendly and helpful too. We can't wait to go back... Pura Vida!"

  • 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."

  • Very nice place in a fun, safe little town on the beach

    "We stayed a few days before heading south. Everything was as described. Very nice and exceptionally clean. We had what we needed to cook, bathroom was properly stocked with towels and the bed linens looked brand new. Frank had some nice beach towels for us to use, so nice I left them alone because I didn't want to get them dirty! There's also a propane grill and, I think, a cooler too. The unit is very secure and was easy walking distance to beach, bars and restaurants. The shared pool area is wonderful and like many others posted, we enjoyed the friendly people staying in the condos around us as well as they people who were taking care of the grounds. Also, Frank was very helpful, hospitable and accommodating. He even dropped what he was doing to rescue me from myself when I accidentally locked stuff in the safe and couldn't get it open again because I didn't read the directions. I look forward to renting from Frank again! Mark and Amy"

  • 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."
