  • Family with young kids

    "Two families met at this house with 2 toddlers and a baby. House is just as pictured. Very clean. Has all the appliances/amenities one would need. However it does NOT come with AC throughout (only in the bedrooms) which is fine but just different from what the website says. Also does have a washing machine but NOT a dryer (although there are clothes lines outside). Pool is lovely, kept clean daily by groundskeeper who lives right next door. This guy is also available for any other concerns or questions, although we had none. Property manager, Randy, was friendly and met us at the house upon arrival. Seems like a good guy. We were concerned about having to pay with cash only (does not take credit cards except for deposit) but it was all legit. Property is located directly on the beach and along a strip of homes. Next door neighbors are visible from yard but with landscape still have a fair amount of privacy. It was perfect for us: we like our privacy but also good to not be too secluded when in a foreign country. We felt very safe in this area. Locks on house are appropriate. Beach is clean and no rocks, but unfortunately is a little steep and also small during high tide, so not a great beach for kids to play on. Beach not too crowded. Good for sitting to watch the sunset, taking walks and playing in the water. Water was clean (no seaweed) and fairly warm, but was not the crystal blue waters like we've seen on other beaches (not sure if that's due to location or timing). Grassy part of yard in January was completely burnt yellow and dry, unlike the nice green lush grass seen in the pics, so again not great for kids to play on. No crib available but we made do making bumpers around a bed for the baby. Huge roosters were in our yard each morning and a family of monkeys came to visit us one afternoon-- fun for the kids!"

  • Excellent Gateway

    "Our experience with this condo has been excellent for my family. Condo is open and spacious and provided all the comforts of home, truly a home away from home. We felt safe and secure within the community, exceptional grounds and pools are family friendly. Everything is within walking distance, but it doesn't hurt to rent a golf cart to allow more time spent shopping, dining out or spending more time at the beach. High and low end groceries store are also within easy access, which was perfect for home cooking with lesser known brand names but equally tasty. Having a washer and dryer in the condo allowed us to pack less clothes and more room to bring home souvenirs, a win win for us. It was also wonderful to have a built in ice dispenser on the fridge, came in handy everyday as we tend to bring our water bottles everywhere especially to the terrace overlooking one of the pools. We've heard so many positive remarks with this Condo and we were not disappointed, it exceeded everything we were looking for and so much more. Thank you Joe for allowing us into your home, we are humbled to have had it for two weeks."

  • Costa Rica Fun!

    "Our family of seven, stayed for the week over New Years 2016. It was fabulous! It was our first time to Costa Rica and we absolutely loved Playas del Coco! The condo was wonderful, everything you could ask for and more. Spacious rooms and living areas, kitchen, washer/dryer, a/c, patio with grill, pools, gated secure complex and super nice and friendly neighbors and staff. You'll want to bring a few toiletry items, like tp, paper towels, napkins and laundry soap but everthing else is there. We brought our own beach towels but there were some there also. We loved it! We were so comfortable there and everyone was so nice. The short walk to the beach was great, you were there in two minutes and the mini mart was very handy. There are so many restaurants it's hard to know which are best, I'd just give them a try. We liked Cafe de Playa and Tiki Coco. There are plenty of shops to get your souvenirs and numerous tour operators for whatever you're looking for. We booked the catamaran tour on the Visions boat which was really handy getting on right at the beach. The boat ride, free drinks, snorkeling and sunset were amazing. The buffet was so so and I'd recommend getting in line right away as the food does run out. Overall a fun activity though. We also enjoyed the drive out to Volcan Arenal, though it does take a few hours and is very, very narrow and windy roads. Lots of great hiking and restaurants to stop along the way. Our most fun adventure was the Canon de la Vieja Adventure tours. We did a full day combo that included awesome zip lining, rock wall rapelling (not for everyone-it's hard!), horse back riding, whitewater tube rafting (do the tubes not the kayaks- way more fun), an amazing buffet lunch- the food was superperb, fresh and plentiful, and finished up with a sauna, body mud mask, jump in the river and then relaxing hot spring soak. It's right outside Liberia, so not far to travel. If you have a car, drive yourself, it will save you up to $50 a person. We loved hanging out at the beach and swimming in the pools. The beach is a pretty black sand and swimming is just lovely. A nice sandy bottom, no weeds or sharp edges. The pools were great and so nice to have right outside your patio door. We loved it! Julie and Ron are great and we definitely recomend their condo! We plan to return and have family members interested as well, you won't be disappointed! The O's."

  • Our amazing stay in Playa Grande Estates!

    "We came to visit Costa Rica as a family looking for a place to stay that was kid friendly and safe. We rented Playa Grande Estates, the home was everything and more we could have asked for. It has great surf out front at Playa Grande, and restaurants walking distance from the house. The home has an amazing swimming pool and a outside bar to hang out at while we watched our kids swim. We felt safe there because the home was behind a secure gated wall. We look forward to coming back to Costa Rica and staying at this home next year!"
