  • Fabulous vacation home

    "Dave, thanks for sharing your rental with us. It was perfect for 2 couples, close enough to walk to the beach and Tamarindo. My husband really appreciated the boogie boards that you provide. Having a washing machine was perfect since we were on our second week in CR. We all appreciated the fully equipped kitchen, big showers and the outdoor patio facing the beach. It was so nice to be able to jump in to the refreshing pool when we needed a cool off but didn't want to walk down to the beach. The management company was great with storing our luggage until check in time, tour set ups, arranging to pick up family at the airport and allowing a late check out. Thanks again, having a great place to stay made this trip relaxing and memorable."

  • Manage expectations and you'll like it

    "First the good: the view is spectacular, and no photos do it any justice. The view, the pool, the location close to so many great beaches all make this a great place to day trip and see the Guanacaste area, provided you have a car. 4WD recommended, but not essential. The pool was great! My 6 year old daughter went from tentative swimmer to a fish in 6 days, and her swimming instructors couldn't believe it. Nice views, comfy beds (with a caveat below), and a tasteful decor. For 3 of us, it was the right size. Now the bad: first of all, the owner disappeared about two weeks before our arrival. I wrote several times asking for directions, etc. and no reply. Only when I was already in Costa Rica and filled out the form for prospective renters did I get a reply, the night before our arrival. Personally I don't like to travel this way. Maybe I've a lot to learn about "Pura Vida." As I said, the place has a great view, but is poorly equipped for someone with experience staying in VRBO properties. With so many photos of the kitchen and guests dining on the patio, I expected more. The kitchen is stocked as if a bachelor lived there - more George Foreman grills than wine glasses, and that's no exaggeration. There is basically one set of dishes, matching coffee mugs, some silverware and not much else. As someone who likes to cook I was extremely disappointed with so barren a kitchen. No mixing bowls, no potato peeler, no measuring cups, nothing even the most basic of kitchens would have to make a decent scratch meal. No spices, not even salt and pepper. I'd have gladly traded the cute welcome flashlights for a few spices and essential kitchen tools. Carlos was mostly helpful, but it always seemed like asking him for something was a little inconvenient for him. We did not realize that once we went through the stocked two rolls of toilet paper we'd have to buy our own. The Wifi was on and off; this must have impacted Carlos as well, as this was the one problem we had that carried a certain sense of urgency. That said, the TV was nice, and I encouraged our girl to watch her favorite cartoons in Spanish. No bedspreads on the bed. Just a topsheet. Hope that suits you cause that's all you get. And the poolside grill? Just a piece of aluminum grating. Seriously, another $300 on some more essentials and this place would rock; maybe the current renovation will help. I'm ranking at 3.5 stars; round it up to 4 only for the view and the pool."

  • Beautiful villa

    "Me and my son stayed in this villa for one week. The villa was large and absolutely beautiful. I viewed some vacancies in this same development and none showed as well as this one. Lots of nature noises (birds, ducks, monkeys) if you like that. You MUST have a rental/car. Although the Marriott is in proximity, it was nearly impossible to walk to in the sweltering heat...and the beach club is simply out of reach by foot, especially in the heat. And you'll definitely want a car to get in and out of town...or prepare to be gouged by Marriott transfers/taxis. Going in and out of the security gates was a bit of a hassle (I thought), but if you're concerned about your safety, then put this one on the list. No shady characters are getting in there! :-)"
