  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Great place to stay! What you see is what you get!!

    "Ending a beautiful week here in Costa Rica! We had a great trip due largely in part to Al who made booking the villa and all the details super easy and also Cesar in the front office who not only arranged our transportation to and from the airport but also helped us book tours, etc. Fantastic staff at the resort only enhanced our experience. The villa was everything it was advertised to be!!! Clean and tastefully decorated, the villa is located a mere 10 steps to the pool and just a few hundred yards from the most beautiful private beach I've ever seen. Great place for a relaxing trip away with the girls or a low-key, hang at the beach week with your family. The pool and the beach were rarely crowded and most mornings (being early risers) we had the entire beach and pool to ourselves. It was almost like being on your own island with modern amenities!!!! We did not rent a car while we were here and I do not feel that we missed out on anything by not doing so. While the resort itself seems fairly isolated and unspoiled, when we wanted to go into town it was just a short taxi ride away. In town, you can easily walk the strip between Coco Beach and the main drag so shopping and dining was easy and hassle free. We will definitely recommend this rental to our friends and family back home and hope to come again ourselves in the near future!!"

  • Beyond Beautiful

    "We brought a group of 12 to this home to celebrate a birthday and engagement. This was the first time in Costa Rica and it was fantastic! The house was beyond beautiful with a wonderfully comfortable feel. The rooms were appropriate in size and all 12 of us had plenty of space. Our concierge, Guss, was great to work with. We could not have found a better place to celebrate my fiancés birthday and our engagement. Looking forward to returning again!"
